Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) assigns senior unsecured ratings of BBB with a Stable Outlook to the senior unsecured notes to be issued by Avolon Holdings Funding Limited (Avolon Holdings Funding) and Park Aerospace Holdings Limited (Park Aerospace). Both Avolon Holdings Funding and Park Aerospace are direct wholly-owned subsidiaries of Avolon Holdings Limited (Avolon or the Company), an aircraft leasing company headquartered in Dublin, Ireland. The notes will have an unsecured guarantee from Avolon. KBRA most recently affirmed the issuer rating of BBB+ and a senior unsecured debt rating of BBB on August 8, 2018.

The notes will be jointly and severally guaranteed on a full and unconditional senior unsecured basis by Avolon, Avolon Aerospace Leasing Limited, Hong Kong Aviation Capital Limited, Park Aerospace Holdings Limited, CIT Aerospace LLC, CIT Group Finance (Ireland), CIT Aviation Finance III Ltd. and CIT Aerospace International (collectively, the Guarantors). The notes rank equally in right of payment with any existing and future senior indebtedness of the Issuer and Guarantors.
