- AYR's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 10.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 15.9%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
- Net operating cash flow has increased to $113.85 million or 34.08% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, AIRCASTLE LTD has also modestly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 34.07%.
- The gross profit margin for AIRCASTLE LTD is currently very high, coming in at 90.30%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Regardless of the strong results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of -28.00% is in-line with the industry average.
- The debt-to-equity ratio is very high at 2.29 and currently higher than the industry average, implying increased risk associated with the management of debt levels within the company.
- Current return on equity is lower than its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a clear sign of weakness within the company. Compared to other companies in the Trading Companies & Distributors industry and the overall market, AIRCASTLE LTD's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
