08:42 EDTEADSY, LUV, JBLU, BA, AAL, CIT, UAL, DALCIT Aerospace president says air traffic to rise in Asia, Latin America in FY14
Tony Diaz, president of CIT Aerospace at CIT Group (CIT) said the airline industry, and with it, air traffic, is expected to increase in 2014, with Asia and Latin America representing the fastest growing markets. Diaz said, "After several years of major airline consolidations, the U.S. is ripe for growth. It’s a market where for the last ten years airlines have been more involved in fixing their balance sheets. It’s time for those airlines to re-fleet, so we see a great opportunity to add aircraft in the U.S. Although consolidation in the U.S. is all but over, international consolidation is still expected, which may ultimately benefit consumers. However, near-term concerns about higher fares will be moderated because there is sufficient competition. Low-cost carriers have penetrated virtually every market and can step in if the large airlines increase fares.” CIT’s current order book focuses on new modern technology aircraft, which includes Boeing’s (BA) 787 and 737 Max, Airbus’s (EADSY) A350 and the A320 Neo. On the horizon for the industry is the E2 version of Embraer’s E-Jet and Boeing’s 777x. Diaz said, “The triple seven-x is going to be a large wide-body, long-haul aircraft, which we think will be very successful in the marketplace." Publicly traded companies in the space include American Airlines (AAL), Delta Air Lines (DAL), JetBlue (JBLU), Southwest (LUV) and United Continental (UAL).

07:04 EDTDALDelta Air Lines to return additional $6B to shareholders through 2017
Delta's board announced a new $5B share repurchase program, to be completed no later than December 31, 2017. In addition, the company's quarterly dividend will increase by 50% to 13.5c per share beginning in the September 2015 quarter. These two programs are expected to return more than $6B to shareholders through 2017. The company also announced that it is on track to complete the remaining $725M of its prior $2 billion share repurchase authorization by June 30. When this authorization is completed, Delta will have returned a total of $3B in dividends and share repurchases since announcing its initial program two years ago. Going forward, the company intends to return at least 50% of free cash flow to shareholders through 2017. The new $5B repurchase authorization and 50% increase to the quarterly dividend approved by Delta's board are expected to return more than $6B to shareholders through 2017. Delta ended the March 2015 quarter with $7.4B of adjusted net debt, a reduction of $2B since the end of 2013 and roughly $10B since the company began its debt reduction efforts in 2009. The company has set a target to achieve and maintain $4B of adjusted net debt by year end 2017. This debt level is expected to result in annual net interest expense of ~$200M, a $1.1B reduction compared to 2009. Since 2009, Delta has increased its pension plan assets by $1.7 billion, net of $5.2 billion in distributions, through a combination of contributions and asset returns. The company plans to maintain its current $1 billion annual funding level through 2020, with a goal of achieving 80% funded status by that date. Delta made a one-time additional $200M contribution in 2015, for a total contribution of $1.2B for the year, to keep the company on track to achieve its 2020 target.
