For banks and debt investors one of the worst things in a loan transaction is to discover that it cannot be re-paid according to its terms. For many lenders the restructuring process is fraught with difficulties as they do not have the capabilities in-house to develop and evaluate strategic options and to take practical action from repossession to transition or disposal of the aircraft. For these difficult situations, let FPG Amentum be your one-stop shop to provide you with all the expertise that is needed to arrive at the best solution.

FPG Amentum has been involved in numerous work-outs and repossessions of aircraft and takes a proactive approach to evaluating potential work-outs so that the lender is ready to take action at the earliest opportunity. In fact, in almost every instance where FPG Amentum has repossessed aircraft, it has been the first to gain control of the aircraft assets and records. This includes successful repossessions from jurisdictions such as China, India, Indonesia and Nigeria.

FPG Amentum supports its bank and debt investor customers to the successful completion of the restructuring with the redeployment of the aircraft on lease or the sale of the asset. We provide our restructuring assistance on a confidential basis and welcome inquiries from bank and debt investors to discuss their restructuring requirements.
