Triton Aviation Finance Announces That It is Considering Strategic Alternatives

SAN FRANCISCO--()--Triton Aviation Finance, a Delaware statutory trust (“TAF”), announced today that it is evaluating its strategic alternatives. TAF has engaged Latham & Watkins LLP as legal counsel to assist with this evaluation. These options include, among other things, a liquidation and distribution of TAF’s remaining assets pursuant to an equitable proceeding under state law. While TAF considers these and other alternatives, it expects to continue to make interest payments on the Subclass A-1 notes as required by the Trust Indenture, dated as of June 22, 2000 (as supplemented by that certain Indenture Supplement, dated as of November 30, 2001, that certain Second Indenture Supplement, dated as of September 27, 2012, and that certain Third Indenture Supplement, dated as of September 30, 2013, the “Indenture”), among TAF, as the issuer, TAL2 LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, in its capacity as cash manager, and Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas (formerly known as Bankers Trust Company), as Trustee. However, TAF does not expect, after giving effect to required payments of expenses and establishment of reserves, to have funds available for principal distributions outside of a formal resolution. TAF is considering all of its options at this time.

Any questions may be directed to TAF at (415) 795-2085 or rbrinkman@t-aviation.com.
