Offenbach, Germany – Doric has successfully begun 2021 by completing the acquisition of two aircraft engines via SkyLux 225 SA, a Luxembourg-based securitization vehicle. This transaction represents the set-up of a portfolio with a minimum of six engines. Upon acquisition, the engines will be leased back to a subsidiary of a leading European engine manufacturer.
This transaction marks the first cooperation between Doric and Prime Capital as Placement Agent.
The acquisition of the engines has been financed by rated registered notes issued by SkyLux 225 SA. The notes bear a fixed interest rate and were placed with institutional investors in Germany.
Sibylle Pähler, Managing Director of Doric, commented on the acquisition: “We are delighted about this aviation transaction, which was accomplished despite the current COVID-19 market situation, and look forward to working together with Prime Capital and our leasing partner in the future.”
