ORIX Corporation: ORIX acquires shares in Avolon Holdings Limited, a leading aircraft leasing company located in Ireland
.

TOKYO, Japan – November 6, 2018 – ORIX Corporation (“ORIX”) announced today that, via its group company in Ireland, ORIX Aviation Systems Limited (“ORIX Aviation”), which is an aircraft leasing and trading company, has acquired 30 percent of the outstanding shares of Ireland-based Avolon Holdings Limited (“Avolon”). Advance notice of this share acquisition was published on August 8, 2018, in a release entitled “ORIX Corporation to acquire 30% shareholding of Avolon Holdings Limited, a leading global aircraft leasing company located in Ireland.”*

Avolon is an aircraft leasing company headquartered in Ireland. It specializes in the primary market of purchasing new aircraft from aircraft manufacturers and leasing them to airline companies. In 2016, Avolon became a fully owned subsidiary of Chinese conglomerate the HNA Group’s leasing company, Bohai Capital Holding Co., Ltd. (“Bohai Capital”). Avolon has since expanded its business and, at present, is the third largest aircraft leasing company in the world.

ORIX entered the aircraft finance lease business in 1978; in 1991, it established ORIX Aviation, and has grown to be a major aircraft lessor, asset manager and trading company. In addition to the leasing of its own portfolio aircraft, ORIX Aviation also focuses on developing a unique asset management platform that attracts both Japanese and international investors.

Following the share acquisition, there will be no material change as to how Avolon operates, and ORIX Aviation will utilize the significant knowledge and experience it has developed over many years in the aircraft leasing business to be a supportive shareholder of Avolon.

The aircraft market is expected to see strong and continued passenger demand in the future. Going forward, the ORIX Group intends to further increase the scale of its aircraft leasing business through both ORIX Aviation and Avolon, to increase its presence in the global aircraft leasing market, and thereby grow its business from a medium and long-term perspective.
