We are encouraged by continuing improvements across key industry metrics including rising traffic levels and all-time high load factors while the supply of parked current generation aircraft remains very low."Wainshal concluded: "During the year, Aircastle delivered consistently strong portfolio performance and cash flow, and our financial results have only started to reflect the significant built-in asset growth of our $1.1 billion Airbus program and the investments made during the year. We are continuing to source promising investment opportunities and believe Aircastle is in a terrific position to capitalize on the industry's healthy growth trends."We ended the year with $240 million in unrestricted cash, and our cash flows remain strong.  Given our liquidity position and the fact that our stock is still trading well below book value, our board approved a $60 million share repurchase program.  We believe repurchasing our shares is an excellent investment which complements our growth plans as well as our dividend policy."Fourth Quarter ResultsLease rental revenue for the fourth quarter was $139.3 million, up $11.6 million or 9% year over year, due primarily to the impact of aircraft acquisitions net of disposals of $11.9 million.Total revenues for the fourth quarter were $134.7 million, a decrease of $1.1 million from the previous year, and reflect lower maintenance revenue of $10.0 million due to fewer scheduled and unscheduled lease transitions in 2010, higher amortization of net lease discounts and lease incentives of $2.8 million, partially offset by $11.6 million of higher lease rental revenue discussed above.EBITDA for the fourth quarter was $134.8 million, up $10.3 million from the fourth quarter of 2009, due primarily to higher lease rental revenue of $11.6 million, lower SG&A and maintenance and other costs totaling $2.5 million and higher other income of $6.0 million due principally to the increase in gain on the sale of flight equipment. These increases were partially offset by lower maintenance revenue totaling $10.0 million.Adjusted net income plus depreciation and amortization for the quarter was $76.6 million, down $1.0 million year over year, due primarily to lower maintenance revenue totaling $10.0 million and higher adjusted interest expense of $5.9 million, partially offset by higher lease rental revenue of $11.6 million and lower SG&A and maintenance and other costs of $2.5 million.Adjusted net income for the quarter was $14.2 million, down $6.9 million year over year, and reflects lower total revenues of $1.1 million, higher depreciation of $3.1 million and higher adjusted interest expense of $5.9 million, partially offset by lower SG&A and maintenance and other costs of $2.5 million.Full Year ResultsLease rental revenue for the full year was $531.1 million, up $19.6 million or 4% year over year, and reflects higher rental revenue due to the impact of aircraft acquisitions net of disposals of $22.5 million, partially offset by lower rentals from lease transitions, extensions, and floating rate leases totaling $2.9 million.Total revenues for 2010 were $527.7 million, a decrease of $42.9 million from the previous year, and reflect lower maintenance revenue of $43.0 million due to fewer scheduled and unscheduled lease transitions in 2010, higher amortization of net lease discounts and lease incentives of $8.9 million and lower interest income and other revenue totaling $10.6 million due to the sale of our debt investments in 2009 and the absence of lease termination payments in 2010. These decreases were partially offset by $19.6 million of higher lease rental revenue discussed above.EBITDA for the full year was $491.2 million, down $10.4 million from the fourth quarter of 2009, due primarily to lower maintenance and lease termination revenue totaling $51.7 million, partially offset by higher lease rental revenue of $19.6 million, lower impairment charges of $10.9 million, lower maintenance and other costs of $9.8 million and higher other income of $2.7 million.Adjusted net income plus depreciation and amortization for the full year was $308.4 million, down $17.1 million year over year, due primarily to lower maintenance and lease termination revenue totaling $51.7 million and higher adjusted interest expense of $5.6 million, partially offset by higher lease rental revenue of $19.6 million, lower impairment charges of $10.9 million and lower maintenance and other costs of $9.8 million.Adjusted net income for the full year was $67.9 million, down $36.9 million year over year, and reflects lower maintenance and lease termination revenue totaling $51.7 million, higher amortization of net lease discounts and incentives of $8.9 million, higher depreciation expense of $11.0 million and higher adjusted interest expense of $5.6 million, partially offset by higher lease rental revenue of $19.6 million, lower impairment charges of $10.9 million and lower maintenance and other costs of $9.8 million.Aviation AssetsDuring 2010, we acquired 11 aircraft for approximately $500 million, including three Boeing 737-800 aircraft, two Boeing 747-400F production freighter aircraft and one Airbus A330-200F freighter aircraft, which were acquired during the fourth quarter.  During 2010, we also executed four aircraft dispositions which resulted in a net gain on disposition of approximately $7.1 million.In the first quarter of 2011, we completed the sale of four Boeing 737-400SF freighter aircraft and we took delivery of one Airbus A330-200 passenger aircraft which is on lease to South African Airways.As of December 31, 2010, Aircastle owned 136 aircraft having a net book value of $4.1 billion.Owned Aircraftas ofDecember 31,2010(A)111 Passenger Aircraft67%25 Freighter Aircraft33%Number of Lessees64Number of Countries36Weighted Average Remaining Lease Term (years)(B)4.7Percentage of Aircraft Leased Outside U.S.92%Percentage of "Latest Generation" Aircraft90%Weighted Average Fleet Utilization during the three months ended December 31, 2010(C)99%Weighted Average Fleet Utilization during the year ended December 31, 2010(C)99%(A) Percentages calculated using net book value.(B) Weighted average remaining lease term (years) by net value.(C) Aircraft on-lease days as a percent of total days in period weighted by net book value, excluding aircraft in freighter conversion.We had 19 aircraft with lease expirations originally scheduled for 2010.  For these 2010 lease expiries we executed lease renewals or new leases on 17 of these aircraft and sold two aircraft.  We have 11 aircraft with scheduled lease expirations in 2011 and we have executed lease commitments or renewal commitments with respect to seven of these aircraft.  We also executed sale agreements for two of these aircraft and are actively marketing the remaining two aircraft for sale or lease.  In the first quarter of 2011 we terminated early the leases for five aircraft ? four Airbus A320-200 aircraft leased to an airline based in Egypt and one Airbus A319-100 aircraft leased to an airline in Jordan.  These five aircraft represented approximately 2% of our lease rental revenue during the fourth quarter of 2010.  We are actively marketing these aircraft for sale or lease.Financing UpdateDuring 2010, Aircastle secured new financing commitments totaling approximately $1.1 billion, including $700 million for our Airbus A330 Agreement which will benefit from an ECA guarantee provided by Compagnie Francaise d'Assurance pour le Commerce Exterieur, or COFACE.  We also completed our first senior unsecured notes offering with a private placement offering of 9.75% senior unsecured notes due in 2018, in an aggregate principal amount of $300 million.  In September 2010, we also entered into a $50 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility which has a three-year term.In February 2011, we entered into a $72.8 million twelve year term loan with Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation which is supported by a guarantee from COFACE for the financing of a new Airbus A330-200 passenger aircraft.  This financing bears interest at a fixed rate of 3.7875%.Share Repurchase ProgramThe Company's Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $60 million of the Company's common shares.  Under the program, the Company may purchase its common shares from time to time in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions.  The amount and timing of the purchases will depend on a number of factors including the price and availability of the Company's common shares, trading volume and general market conditions.  The Company may also from time to time establish a trading plan under Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 to facilitate purchases of its common shares under this authorization.Conference CallIn connection with this earnings release, management will host an earnings conference call on Thursday, March 10, 2011 at 10:00 A.M.

We use EBITDA to assess our consolidated financial and operating performance, and we believe this non-GAAP measure is helpful in identifying trends in our performance. Using EBITDA assists us in comparing our operating performance on a consistent basis by removing the impact of our capital structure (primarily interest charges on our outstanding debt) and asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization) from our operating results.Aircastle Limited and SubsidiariesReconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP MeasuresAdjusted Net Income plus Depreciation Reconciliation(Dollars in thousands)(Unaudited)Three Months Ended December 31,Year Ended December 31,2009201020092010Net income$22,992$20,229$102,492$65,816   Ineffective portion and termination of cash flow hedges(1)6232,5065,3875,805   Mark to market of interest rate derivative contracts(2)(403)(130)(959)860   Accelerated write off of deferred financing fees------2,471   Gain on sale of flight equipment(2)(1,000)(8,375)(1,162)(7,084)   Gain on sale of debt investments(2)(5,096)--(4,965)--Termination of engine purchase agreement(2)4,000    --4,000    --Adjusted net income21,11614,230104,79367,868   Depreciation53,10256,204209,481220,476   Amortization of net lease discounts and lease incentives3,3106,12411,22920,081Adjusted net income plus depreciation and amortization$77,528$76,558$325,503$308,425(1) Included in Interest, net(2) Included in Other income (expense)Management believes that Adjusted Net Income ("ANI") and Adjusted Net Income plus Depreciation and Amortization ("ANIDA"), when viewed in conjunction with the Company's results under GAAP and the above reconciliation, provide useful information about operating and period-over-period performance, and provide additional information that is useful for evaluating the underlying operating performance of our business without regard to periodic reporting elements related to interest rate derivative accounting as well as gains/(losses) related to flight equipment and debt investments. Additionally, management believes that ANIDA provides investors with an additional metric to enhance their understanding of the factors and trends affecting our ongoing cash earnings, from which capital investments are made, debt is serviced and dividends are paid. However, ANI and ANIDA are not measures of financial performance or liquidity under GAAP and, accordingly, should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss) or cash flow from operating activities as indicators of operating performance or liquidity.Aircastle Limited and SubsidiariesReconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP MeasuresReconciliation of Net Income Allocable to Common Shares(In thousands)(Unaudited)Three Months EndedDecember 31, 2010Year EndedDecember 31, 2010SharesPercent(2)SharesPercent(2)Weighted average sharesCommon shares outstanding ?
