A solid performance (excluding the expense related to the acquisition). The big earnings gains will come when AER starts to consolidate the combined operations; the merger should close this quarter. Just moving the assets to the Republic of Ireland will reduce income taxes and add real value for shareholders.
U. S. Congress, wake up!!! You need to reduce the U. S. corporate income tax rates.
I am going to pay close attention to AIG's earnings. Hoping they break out the leasing sector. Give us a hint as to what the result of the dilution vs the total earnings of the 2 companies. It will take some time to get the savings of the combined companies.
