Seabury Capital Group LLC (“Seabury”) and Plane View Partners (“PVP”) are pleased to announce the strategic combination of Seabury’s global industry-leading airline advisory, restructuring and investment banking practice with PVP’s highly regarded aviation and aerospace consulting practice.
The combination will leverage the deep experience of both firms in advising airlines and other aviation industry participants to provide a broader and more complete set of advisory services on a global basis. The new entity, which will operate under the name of Seabury Aviation Partners, will integrate Seabury and PVP’s loyal client bases, comprising a global network of airlines, aerospace manufacturers, institutional investors, leading lessors, and aviation service providers and innovators, who have entrusted both firms with their strategic decisions through hundreds of engagements.
Seabury’s track record in investment banking and restructuring (including the arranging and/or restructuring of over $200 billion of debt and lease transactions, negotiating over $300 billion of new aircraft purchase agreements, and raising over $15 billion of equity capital for aviation customers), combined with PVP’s strategic and transactional skillset, will allow Seabury Aviation Partners to offer world-class investment banking services, including M&A and capital financing, aircraft acquisition and financing, financial and operational restructuring, liquidity management, strategic advisory services (network, revenue, and fleet management), business planning, and other consulting services.
“Our combination with PVP further cements Seabury’s position as the preeminent global aviation advisor,” said John E. Luth, Seabury’s Chairman & Chief Executive Officer.
Henri Courpron, PVP’s Chairman, added: “We built a very strong aviation and aerospace global advisory practice over the last 10 years, and we look forward to combining forces with Seabury now.”
“PVP will add a new dimension to our global leading airline aviation practice, while adding aerospace to our consulting practice,” remarked Michael Cox, Seabury’s Senior Managing Director.
Luth will serve as Seabury Aviation Partners’ Chairman and CEO and Courpron and Cox will serve as Co-Chairmen.
