    On second though....

    maybe we should be careful what we ask for
    Bernstein's Josh Stirling says investors may want to brace themselves for a headline announcing the termination of the deal to sell an 80% stake in ILFC. Would it be such a bad thing? At least one comparable - Aircastle Limited (AYR) - has rallied 40% since the deal to sell ILFC was inked. Perhaps ILFC would command more than a $5.2B valuation today.

    Maybe we can get a better deal even through an IPO? Cheers

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • You fraud, I don't believe you are that stupid to think that the IPO route would be better than the already agreed sale.
      It is obvious, that if the IPO route was better, AIG would have gone that route before.
      Secondly, the market told us how investors feel when Bernstein's Stirling issued his note you refer to, and today when it was leaked that ILFC was filing to reopen the IPO possibility. The market said in clear and certain terms, no to your idea that the IPO would be better. The stock came under selling pressure, and this on an up day in the markets.
      Thirdly, the ILFC business is not doing well. The filing declared lower profits etc. How are you going get a good price for the IPO shares in this market with all the interest rate worries we are seeing , in a capital intensive business like airline leasing? And then you have to pay all the IPO fees.
      Yet what do you say, ?
      I quote from your post, " Perhaps ILFC would command more than a $5.2B valuation today. Maybe we can get a better deal even through an IPO? Cheers"
      I SAY , you can't be that stupid to make that statement. I believe you know better. You are intentionally lying to the board, in your pumping style
      I say , YOU ARE A LIAR AND A FRAUD.h
      How dare you try to denigrate me, who tells the truth to the board.
      How dare you make false accusations against me.
      How dare you!

      • The IPO route was almost not available during the time that it was for sale. It is a much better market now. Whether it will be ultimately better for AIG, it is hard to tell. My bet is that it may result in slightly more for AIG after all costs are discounted.

      • Lol you are quoting Josh stirling not me. "Perhaps ILFC would command more than a 5.2 B valuation today" captionalpha said maybe we can get a better deal through an IPO

        Also note he says valuation he doesn't say that's how much we would get in fact I believe he has said
        We probably couldn't do much better. Have a good weekend hd or value man or .......

    • Sorry just woke up. On second thoughT
