Aircastle: "Aircastle's second quarter financial results were very good, reflecting strong portfolio performance and effective asset management. I'm particularly encouraged by our acquisition activity, where we have been able to find attractive investment values consistent with our disciplined approach and return targets. In that regard, the majority of our recent investments have been for new wide-body aircraft on long-term leases with high quality lessees, and this is gradually transforming and enhancing the mix of our portfolio. We're in an excellent position to capitalise on our team's transaction origination capabilities with the new capital we've sourced,” Ron Wainshal, CEO. Source: Company statement, 06-Aug-2013.
