Walkers Advises CK Asset Holdings on the US$4bn Sale of AMCK Aviation to Carlyle Aviation Partners

Walkers' Corporate M&A Group has acted as Irish counsel, alongside lead advisors Clifford Chance, on CK Asset Holdings' US$4bn sale of AMCK Aviation’s portfolio of aircraft to an investment vehicle managed by Carlyle Aviation Partners. The deal involved the sale of over 120 aircraft as well as an order book of 20 committed aircraft.

This was a strategic disposal for CK Asset Holdings, representing its exit from the aircraft leasing sector, with the working capital generated from the proceeds of sale enabling it to enhance its strategic focus during the pandemic. AMCK is a global aircraft leasing company headquartered in Dublin, Ireland with regional offices in Tokyo, Japan and Irvine, California.

The Walkers team was led by Corporate Group partner Brendan O'Brien working alongside Of Counsel Eoin Ryan and Associate Cal Kane, as well as Asset Finance partner Matt Hedigan.
