Willis Lease Finance posts annual pre-tax profit of US$9.1 million


Willis Lease Finance Corporation has reported annual total revenues of US$274.2 million a 5% decrease when compared to US$288.7 million in the prior year. Revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2021 was US$75.8 million, up 23.3% from the comparative period in 2020. Lease rent revenue was US$134.8 million in 2021, off 5.6% from 2020. Pre-tax profit was US$9.1 million compared to US$17.3 million in 2020.

For the year ended December 31, 2021, aggregate lease rent and maintenance reserve revenues were US$208.8 million and spare parts and equipment sales were US$17.4 million. The company reported increased total revenues in the fourth quarter when compared to the prior year period, primarily due to both an increase in lease rent revenue and gain on sale of leased equipment and financial assets, partially offset by a reduction in long-term maintenance revenue.

“We continued to see a slow recovery during the second half of 2021 as travel began to open on a global basis only to be dampened again near year-end by COVID-19 variants,” said Charles F. Willis, Chairman and CEO. “COVID-related travel prohibitions have been relaxed more recently, but now the industry faces new stresses associated with geo-political issues that are tragic on every level. As always, we continue to focus on the things we can control, and we believe the Company is well positioned to help our customers provide an essential product: air travel.”
