expecting forward? just on or Can you I Joe, rates going But of XQ? relatively the again that are does any running utilization you ahead. like XX% remind you're leases. us And it you more, deferral that quarter, deferral your much mentioned the bullish you're guess, that some had rate in during default a looking prospects sound estimates your

Joe Adams

As utilization a XX%, I to the expect engine to to XX% XX%. we XX% on be we targeted QX which is about sort side, have of mentioned, -- always

engine And So to that the earlier, as we even going market we the stronger. shop think lack with airlines also balance that will year be over improving. doing of is of strong and mentioned visits, expect I the get the

year, there'll next think even be shortage. we sometime a And

So there. good the outlook very is

advantageous aircraft we was bodies, back to the assets get narrow and the was weren't for actually And the and X up to overall, they in take use airframes because I early. the like those going in weak, took and supply On we airframe the it those felt of we longer of remarks, us going scrapped engines. back it to or credits engine shortly, the took business. and airframes the lease than engines And up lease the term supply a X side, the utilization think were we've put survive, I is Because mentioned there early. coming we either as -- to was

we So competitive airframe deployed quicker better, in than to the in market will be get assets think those engine being market. the

deferral XXX lot deferrals portion we did the XX% Because, were side, of Most On of operators and flying. gave those a those as our market. of we deferrals. or are portfolio, the those say biggest just mentioned, I of not the in XX

XX% but where only we planes is very because the XXs probably end fine still the and being be of to portfolio. of planes, our will converted the of excess XXs And will think that's cargo. highest stress, those of about and cargo strong, So it's those ultimately, up most values

Brandon Oglenski

Okay. prepared products. the at you're highlight, end I your you Really think, response, engine remarks then of getting that and did that close appreciate these

then that JV you I is just Or just sell own the of towards think you how something -- externally to potential partner, Is too? I a for about your fleet? you want this said commentary is your approval sooner MRO something that into think does one the Can product on us And up than year. coming update fit end one the process? structure.

Joe Adams

So I'll start with that.

we'll approximately million a there's going will have in products. priority in this we'll queue. We -- dedicated X to mentioned the cost no we for XXXX, shop another fleet an to have airfoil us X shop position. that side, It's are substantial that wanted make advantage. have of MRO and and it's have mainly venture. because of to $X to -- ownership a the shop several the place we'll interruption we're And sure have our in in development, about visits joint XX% that manage own that have we our portion oil visit a the was have not And we really and On

been in we've the the a simply change a looking partnership. dramatic it's So year. business, over for But at MRO this with

MRO actually And also significantly empty. it large next allow deal better us think very own the We got all with XX It'll the years. shops address largely for facilitate Now our for a the will a over our fleet are managing -- the CFM engine company. us I needs of parts.

be the and and forward, going be as and being process that have to opportunity could used this could take serviceable put the with engine, through the the of will approval given have to an One that if some OEM and want new working engines we significant for that that of control whole we of something out profits in FAA the comes things of do. that is we and very we us these collaboratively also the venture business to shop material able manage into our -- volume a parts, that is, source we able to joint period. been and we income of parts, sell do The we that's see

Operator

Stephens. question our comes And with from Long next Justin

Justin Long

Maybe on the you the about talk as forward? Joe, how was going just would capital, that leverage last about could the recent bond comfortable taking to on And areas deal deploy question. where what's think received? follow-up going could different you forward, you you feel update

Joe Adams

Yes.

the So was energy had then probably the as a side what was fixed basis bond is not traditionally great being cost, did on and aviation higher higher also market the business with income points it typically, exposure. deal than we high-yield in the XXX of we in done result a

So having then that, very $XXX had million very, for $XXX that We million. strong. increased orders $XXX -- $XXX the million launched the said We deal it did. over and million was we to of reception but

have very up. Bonds traded So very, good reception.

basis at XXX pricing. seeing returns way pleased up higher basis The we're really though, points. be on in of access X,XXX would order that points. estimate to able side, than more this capital the the on returns So to I at we're have point very gone return the aviation

given that government-owned only higher distressed, points engines with has percentage airlines never right doing more the industry XX So deals and -- we're have backing. on been now than been historically, substantial that tremendously and CFM

or even not -- talk yield year. venture not When year we So next better circumstances that the year in this that next upside return, about to having it's parts have I joint factoring even from a I'm hard that the set will given of end factoring. starting we're for the imagine of

very government, I a, you're airlines. owned XX-, happening these competition have think that buying airline prices is it's for in dream a you able buy these of government-backed only terms a governments, b, little And Nobody choices. the by there's an X XX-year-old else assets and is, it's from at the airplanes; if being us. So reason to that's

can find need you us more and less allows as money. to I like to go and the which go much very people or the for to -- do go say, I if don't the you is deal, take money, conversely, You you government government back that don't and can have not popular. ask

that's deals attractive. the why the So I market is so -- think

targeted about In terms We're we've I of leverage, or XX.X%, XX%. always on a nonrecourse think, debt we're basis, something.

we're the higher Obviously, this we've not environment targeted. So to want have is leverage, you'd one at level right lower where leverage.

and So from Ridge up to we'll take down stakes we've in leverage then Long but much before of look advantage some leverage not with of take I bring done minority stock to to do year. looking to sell think We infra last really here. did we or CMQR again the of asset raise potentially the just some issue as monetizing could preferred potentially sales other things potentially capital and as

Justin Long

now Okay. That's it going expecting be really guess, on to $XX headwind. less. COVID back helpful. what I million to or said you the you're And

about COVID year? if these X that's of you deals just are we kind think think pipeline, the fill this As hole done, get that X the enough in do aviation of you to deals these

Joe Adams

Yes.

right deal The $XX first about it's million, now is France, probably the million. additional and million with working -- would deal on is of the second approximately third we're $XX $XX EBITDA. I Air deal And

you that add get you the well if up, above $XX all So million.

what we as XX the CFM same, good quarter prices at expect Air We're X our deal the maintenance developing, now. was very announce CFM timing we're approved perfect are our this products to year, add and hope finalize to engines get close. many as at can right and the we So which And all looking joint that have to we're That's that's we to this venture, trying deals. which other engines. France

where So we're I to it's that's headed. from see to. there think But not focused to actually being want you and trying we're is be, that's puck that's that think where going it's positioned what the and benefit you that where And to skate this. -- I a great can
