ATSG's Adjusted Pre-Tax Earnings Up 34 Percent

Operating Results

CAM Leasing

Cargo Aircraft Management (CAM) recorded pre-tax earnings of $16.2 million, excluding impairment charges, up 35 percent from $12.0 million in the third quarter of 2010. At the end of September, CAM had 58 freighter aircraft under lease, including 34 Boeing 767-200 and two 767-300 freighters. Of those thirty-six 767 freighters, 21 are under long-term lease to external parties, including two 767-200s leased to RIO Airlines of Brazil that entered service during the third quarter. CAM's second 767-300 freighter was deployed with an ATSG airline under an ACMI agreement in September, and another 767-200 was similarly deployed through an ATSG airline in October.

At this time, one Boeing 767-200 and one 767-300 are being converted to standard freighters. Another 767-300 passenger aircraft purchased in the second quarter, and a fifth 767-300 purchased in October will be converted to freighters and are expected to enter service in 2012.

CAM also purchased a 757-200 aircraft during the third quarter which is expected to complete its conversion to standard freighter by year-end. Another 757-200 aircraft purchased earlier this year entered prototype conversion into a combination passenger/freighter aircraft (combi) for intended deployment with the U.S. military in the second half of 2012. Additionally, in October, CAM purchased another Boeing 757-200 passenger aircraft for its second combi conversion.

Upon the completion of these aircraft conversions, CAM will own thirty-six 767-200 freighters, five 767-300 freighters, three 757-200 freighters and two 757-200 combi aircraft in its fleet. CAM continues to pursue selective opportunities for adding mid-size aircraft to its fleet.

ACMI Services

Third-quarter revenues from ACMI Services were $118.9 million, excluding fuel and other reimbursed expenses, up 16 percent from the third quarter of 2010. Third-quarter pre-tax earnings from ACMI Services were $2.8 million, excluding impairment charges, compared with $3.4 million in the third quarter of 2010. Third-quarter results were impacted by training costs to transition DC-8 crews into the Boeing 767 aircraft due to DB Schenker's restructuring and lower revenues from the U.S. military as a result of maintenance related cancellations and contractual rate reductions.
