Benefits from Leasing
Improves liquidity and working capital
Operating Lease require significantly less initial cash investment from lessee.
With improved liquidity, operators will increase its ability to invest capital in other aspects of the business and not tie up their cash position in the equipment.
Optimize the fleet planning
An operating lease will expire before the end of the life of the helicopter. The lessee will always replace its old lease with new lease of which enables its average fleet age to be competitive low of which again will give the lessee access to the newest technology
Lease term can be tailored to meet lessee’s operating requirements and the equipment can be returned to Dragonfly at lease expiry.
Elimination of technological obsolescence of the equipment because Dragonfly assumes the residual value risk in the asset at lease expiry.
Focus on cost control
Lessee’s operating lease rentals and operating cost will be known from the day lessee and lessor enters into the Lease Agreement.
Rentals will typically be fully tax deductible whereas only the interest portion of loan repayments would be eligible for tax deductions.
