Tokyo Century to Acquire Aviation Capital Group from Pacific Life

Aviation Capital Group and all of its outstanding interest will be acquired by Tokyo Century from ACG’s majority shareholder, Pacific Life Insurance.

Tokyo Century initially acquired from Pacific Life a 20% interest in ACG in 2017 and has since contributed additional equity capital to ACG, increasing its ownership to 24.5%, to help accelerate its business expansion.

“Tokyo Century has been a valuable partner since 2017, and this acquisition of the remainder of ACG demonstrates a commitment to the growth and success of the ACG platform and the aircraft leasing industry,” said Khanh T. Tran, ACG president and CEO. “The ACG team is enthusiastic and looking forward to being part of the Tokyo Century family as we expand and continue to provide best-in-class global aircraft leasing, financing, and trading services.”

The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Tokyo Century’s core lines of business include equipment leasing, mobility & fleet management, specialty financing, and international business with a global network in 37 countries and regions.

Founded in 1989, Aviation Capital Group is a full-service, aircraft asset managers with approximately 500 owned, managed and committed aircraft as of June 30, 2019, which are leased to approximately 90 airlines in approximately 45 countries.
