Brief Excerpt:

...Air Transport Services Group, Inc. (ATSG) maintains a strong position as one of the world's leading providers of air cargo fleet leasing and related services, including crew, maintenance and insurance (CMI) services. ATSG's credit challenges include its high customer concentrations. As of 31 December 2023, the US Department of Defense (DOD), Amazon, and DHL accounted for 34%, 30% and 12% of revenues, respectively. This challenge is partially offset by the benefits from the high credit quality of these customers and their long- term need for the services provided by ATSG. Positively, we view Amazon's 19.5% minority interest in ATSG results in an alignment of interests that reduces the risk that Amazon's business relationships with ATSG will diminish. Although ATSG's debt-to-EBITDA leverage has increased due to weaker-than-expected operating performance, leverage was relatively modest at 3.1x as of 31 December 2023, and we expect that it will rise only modestly although it is vulnerable to...

Air Transport Services Group, Inc.: Update to credit analysis - Credit Opinion – 2023/09/27 – US$ 250.00 – ...Air Transport Services Group, Inc. (ATSG) maintains a strong position as one of the world's leading providers of air cargo fleet leasing and related services, including crew, maintenance and insurance (CMI) services. ATSG's credit challenges include its high customer concentrations. As of June 30, 2023, the US Department of Defense (DOD), Amazon, and DHL accounted for 32%, 34% and 12% of revenues, respectively. This challenge is partially offset by the benefits from the high credit quality of these customers and their long-term need for the services provided by ATSG. Positively, we view Amazon's 19.5% minority interest in ATSG will result in an alignment of interests that reduces the risk that Amazon's business relationships with ATSG will diminish. We anticipate that ATSG's moderate debt-to-EBITDA leverage (2.4x based on last 12 months EBITDA ended 30 June, 2023) will remain consistent as the company continues to invest in fleet, but that leverage is vulnerable to swings based on the cyclicality...

Air Transport Services Group, Inc.: Update to credit analysis - Credit Opinion – 2022/06/30 – US$ 250.00 – ...Air Transport Services Group, Inc. (ATSG) maintains a strong position as one of the world's leading providers of air cargo fleet leasing and related services, including crew, maintenance and insurance (CMI) services. ATSG's declining debt-to-EBITDA and debt-to-tangible net worth leverage measures highlight the company's strong earnings and cash flow and lower debt levels as it grows its fleet and base of revenues. These factors underscore ATSG's Ba1 corporate family rating. ATSG's earnings and cash flow have been more resilient than lessors of passenger aircraft due to the operating strength its cargo aircraft leasing business, particularly the leasing and CMI services associated with the time-definite package delivery network operations of key customers including Amazon.com, Inc. (A2 positive) and DHL (owned by Deutsche Post AG, A3 stable). ATSG's credit challenges include its high customer concentrations. In 2021, the US Department of Defense, Amazon, and DHL accounted for 31%, 30% and...
