AeroCentury Latest Financial Statement

AeroCentury saw its net loss lessen on a year-over-year level, down from US$ 8.2 million in Q3 2019 to US$ 4.1 million in the latest third quarter of 2020.

The aviation sector has been decimated by the coronavirus pandemic this year, and this crisis reflected in AeroCentury’s latest quarterly report. AeroCentury saw its total revenues in Q3 2020 consist mostly of operating lease revenue, which dropped 52 per cent year-over-year and 26 per cent quarter-over-quarter to US$ 3.2 million. The decrease, the company said, was caused by the drop in the rent revenue for two of its assets sold in October 2020. 

AeroCentury’s total operating expenses fell by 64 per cent QoQ and a whopping 80 per cent YoY to US$ 7 million in the third quarter of 2020.
