1     As of June 2, 2011.
2 For each $1,000 principal amount of Notes (excludes accrued but unpaid interest thereon paid in addition to the Tender Offer Consideration or the Total Consideration, as applicable).
3 For each $1,000 principal amount of Notes tendered prior to the Early Tender Date.
4 Includes the Tender Offer Consideration and the Early Tender Payment.

The complete terms and conditions of the tender offer for the Notes are detailed in ILFC’s Offer to Purchase dated May 19, 2011, and the related Letter of Transmittal (the “Tender Offer Documents”).

On June 2, 2011, after the Early Tender Date, ILFC exercised its right to accept for payment all of the 4.750% Medium-Term Notes, Series Q, due January 13, 2012 (the “4.750% Notes”) and the 5.400% Medium-Term Notes, Series R, due February 15, 2012 (the “5.400% Notes,” and together with the 4.750% Notes, the “Any and All Notes”) validly tendered and not withdrawn prior to the Early Tender Date. ILFC settled the payment for such accepted notes on June 3, 2011.

Each holder who validly tendered its 4.750% Notes prior to the Early Tender Date received the total consideration of $1,025.00 per $1,000.00 principal amount of its 4.750% Notes tendered and accepted, which consists of $995.00 as the tender offer consideration and $30.00 as an early tender payment and each holder who validly tendered its 5.400% Notes prior to the Early Tender Date received the total consideration of $1,030.00 per $1,000.00 principal amount of its 5.400% Notes tendered and accepted, which consists of $1,000.00 in tender offer consideration and $30.00 as an early tender payment. In addition, accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, the applicable payment date of the Any and All Notes, was paid in cash on all tendered and accepted Any and All Notes. The total cash consideration, including accrued and unpaid interest, for such Any and All Notes was approximately $710.1 million.

The tender offers for the Notes will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City Time, on June 16, 2011, unless extended by ILFC (such time and date, as the same may be extended, the “Expiration Date”). Because the withdrawal deadline (5:00 p.m. New York City time on June 2, 2011) has passed, tendered Notes may no longer be withdrawn at any time, except in the limited circumstances where required by law described in the Offer to Purchase.

All the conditions set forth in the Tender Offer Documents remain unchanged. If any of the conditions is not satisfied, ILFC may terminate the tender offers and return tendered Notes not previously accepted. ILFC has the right to waive any of the foregoing conditions with respect to the Notes. In addition, ILFC has the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate the tender offers at any time, subject to applicable law.

Barclays Capital Inc. and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC are the Dealer Managers for the tender offers. Questions regarding the tender offers may be directed to Barclays Capital Inc. at (800) 438-3242 (toll-free) or at (212) 528-7581 (collect) and to J.P. Morgan Securities LLC at (866) 834-4666 (toll-free) or at (212) 834-4811 (collect).

None of ILFC, its board of directors, the Dealer Managers, the trustees under the indentures governing the Notes, the Depositary, the Information Agent, or any of their respective affiliates makes any recommendation as to whether holders of Notes should tender their Notes, and no one has been authorized to make such a recommendation. Each holder of Notes must make his, her or its own decisions as to whether to tender his, her or its Notes, and, if a Holder determines to tender, as to how many Notes of each maturity to tender. Holders of the Notes should read carefully the Tender Offer Documents and related materials before any decision is made with respect to the tender offers.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes subject to the tender offers or any other securities, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation or sale of such securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful.
