Willis Lease Finance Corp: “We remain well positioned to benefit from opportunities in the growing aviation leasing industry and are pleased to announce the completion of two significant strategic investments. In the third quarter, we invested USD1.0 million to purchase the remaining 50% interest in our WOLF joint venture, with the purchase price representing a USD12.7 million discount from the JV partner’s equity interest. We have decided to lease these engines, as we expect our total return will be greater than if we immediately sold them,” Donald Nunemaker, President. Source: Company statement, 07-Nov-2013.
