   Basic lease rents were $1,053.5 million for the second quarter of 2017, compared with $1,106.3 million for the same period in 2016. The decrease was primarily due to the sale of mid-life and older aircraft during 2016 and 2017, which reduced average lease assets. Our average lease assets for
   the second quarter of 2017 were $34.0 billion, compared with $35.1 billion for the same period in 2016.

   Maintenance rents and other receipts were $104.1 million for the second quarter of 2017, compared with $70.9 million for the same period in 2016. The increase was primarily driven by higher end of lease compensation received during the second quarter of 2017.

   Net gain on sale of assets for the second quarter of 2017 was $69.5 million, relating to 24 aircraft sold and 6 aircraft reclassified to finance leases, compared with $38.4 million for the same period in 2016, relating to 32 aircraft sold and three aircraft reclassified to finance leases.

   Other income for the second quarter of 2017 was $36.7 million, compared with $23.9 million for the same period in 2016. Other income for the second quarter of 2017 primarily consisted of non-recurring income from lease terminations.

   Net interest margin, or net spread               $787.5       $833.2       (5%)          $1,575.3     $1,698.9     (7%)

   As shown in the table above, adjusted interest expense was $266.0 million in the second quarter of 2017, compared with $273.1 million for the same period in 2016.

   Annualized net spread was 9.3% in the second quarter of 2017, compared with 9.5% for the same period in 2016. The decrease was primarily a result of the lower age of our owned fleet and the higher average cost of debt. Our average cost of debt increased primarily due to the issuance of new
   longer-term bonds to replace shorter-term ILFC notes, which had lower reported interest expense as a result of ILFC acquisition purchase accounting.

   Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

   Total selling, general and administrative expenses         $84.6   $86.5   (2%)          $168.1   $173.5   (3%)


   Other Expenses

   Asset impairment charges were $5.3 million for the second quarter of 2017, compared to $10.5 million recorded for the same period in 2016. Asset impairment recorded in the second quarter of 2017 related to two aircraft that are being sold at a loss but were treated as held for sale because the
   sale of those aircraft had not been completed as of June 30, 2017. The aircraft were part of an 18-aircraft portfolio that is being sold at an overall profit. Leasing expenses were $136.3 million for the second quarter of 2017, compared with $143.1 million for the same period in 2016. The
   decrease in leasing expenses was primarily related to lower maintenance rights expense associated with the maintenance activity during the second quarter of 2017. Restructuring related expenses were $4.7 million for the second quarter of 2017, compared with $3.5 million for the same period in
   2016. Restructuring related expenses in the second quarter of 2017 and 2016 represented non-recurring charges related to the downsizing of AeroTurbine.

   Effective Tax Rate

   AerCap's effective tax rate was 13.0% during the second quarter of 2017, compared to 13.5% for the same period in 2016. The effective tax rate for the full year 2016 was 14.5%. The effective tax rate in any year is impacted by the source and amount of earnings among AerCap's different tax
   jurisdictions.

   Share Repurchase Program

   Our Board of Directors approved a new share repurchase program authorizing total repurchases of up to $250 million of AerCap ordinary shares through December 31, 2017. Repurchases under the program may be made through open market purchases or privately negotiated transactions in accordance
   with applicable U.S. federal securities laws. The timing of repurchases and the exact number of common shares to be purchased will be determined by the Company's management, in its discretion, and will depend upon market conditions and other factors. The program will be funded using the
   Company's cash on hand and cash generated from operations. The program may be suspended or discontinued at any time.

   In May 2017, we announced the authorization of a $300 million share repurchase program running through September 30, 2017. In July 2017, this share repurchase program was extended to run through December 31, 2017.

   Notes Regarding Financial Information Presented in This Press Release

   The financial information presented in this press release is not audited.

   Due to rounding, numbers presented throughout this document may not add up precisely to the totals provided and percentages may not precisely reflect the absolute figures.

   The following is a definition of non-GAAP measures used in this press release. We believe these measures may further assist investors in their understanding of our operational performance.

   Adjusted debt/equity ratio. This measure is the ratio obtained by dividing adjusted debt by adjusted equity.

     * Adjusted debt means consolidated total debt less cash and cash equivalents, and less a 50% equity credit with respect to certain long-term subordinated debt.
     * Adjusted equity means total equity, plus the 50% equity credit relating to the long-term subordinated debt.

   Adjusted debt and adjusted equity are adjusted by the 50% equity credit to reflect the equity nature of those financing arrangements and to provide information that is consistent with definitions under certain of our debt covenants. We believe this measure may further assist investors in their
   understanding of our capital structure and leverage.

Net interest margin, or net spread (refer to the second table under the Revenue and Net Spread section of this press release). This measure is the difference between basic lease rents and interest expense, excluding the impact of the mark-to-market of interest rate caps and swaps. We believe this measure may further assist investors in their understanding of the changes and trends related to the earnings of our leasing activities. This measure reflects the impact from changes in the number of aircraft leased, lease rates and utilization rates, as well as the impact from changes in the amount of debt and interest rates.
