DUBLIN (Reuters) – SMBC Aviation Capital, the world’s second-largest aircraft lessor, remains open to acquisition opportunities after its recent purchase of smaller rival Goshawk Aviation for $6.7 billion, its chief financial officer said on Monday.
“We still do continue to look at inorganic opportunities, I would say,” Aisling Kenny told the Airline Economics conference in Dublin. “Our shareholders have been extremely supportive. They continue to be supportive. They continue to have ambitious growth plans.”
