Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates – June 14, 2021

Sirius Aviation Capital Holdings Limited (“Sirius”), a global aircraft lessor headquartered in Abu Dhabi Global Market  (“ADGM”), announced that it has acquired ten (10) single-aisle, mid-life aircraft from BOC Aviation, a member of Bank  of China Group during the current Covid-19 pandemic.

To acquire these aircraft Sirius entered into joint ventures with seasoned aviation investors Corrum Capital and HPS  Investment Partners. Sirius’ share of the joint ventures was funded via its commitment from its anchor investor, Abu  Dhabi Catalyst Partners (“ADCP”). ADCP is a joint venture between Mubadala Investment Company and Falcon Edge  (a US investment company).

Sirius commenced operations in ADGM during March 2020 and in just over a year has grown its fleet to 10 aircraft and  over the next three years plans to grow its fleet to 100 aircraft. The acquisition underpins Sirius’ investment strategy  of acquiring in-demand, single-aisle, mid-life aircraft that are globally on lease to strong airline credits, enabling  investors to generate attractive risk adjusted returns.

Howard Millar, Chief Executive Officer of Sirius commenting on the growth of the business at ADGM said: “We are  delighted to have grown our fleet to 10 aircraft during the worst year in the history of commercial aviation. This is  testimony to the strength of our business model, which is to acquire aircraft on lease to top tier airline credits availing  of the attractive returns available in mid-life single aisle aircraft leasing.

The growth of our business during the most difficult year in commercial aviation history enhances the reputation of  ADGM as a platform to launch an international business and transact with leading financial services counterparties on  a global basis. We have been very impressed by the support and contribution of the ADGM team in the successful  launch and growth of the business. It is further recognition of ADGM, and Abu Dhabi, as the “location of choice” for  high-growth companies that want to establish a footprint in the region and develop their business on a global basis.

We also recognize and thank our anchor investor, Abu Dhabi Catalyst Partners(“ADCP”), for their foresight, vision, and  the tremendous support given to the Sirius team.

We continue to see attractive investment opportunities in aviation as traffic volumes recover due to the global roll out of vaccines. Sirius’ plans to more than double its fleet to more than 20 aircraft in the next 12 months, and to over 100  in the next three years. We look forward to working closely with our investors, shareholders, and the ADGM team to  deliver these ambitious targets.”
