NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Macquarie Infrastructure Company (NYSE: MIC) announced that its Atlantic Aviation subsidiary has entered into an asset purchase agreement for the fixed base operations (“FBOs”) at the Portland International and Eugene airports in Oregon. The FBOs, operating as Flightcraft, Inc., are being sold by The Papé Group, Inc.

“Furthermore, Atlantic was able to sell FBOs at a higher multiple of EBITDA (earnings before interest taxes depreciation and amortization) making these acquisitions accretive to their financial results.”

“We are pleased that Atlantic has been able to expand its market-leading network into the Pacific Northwest,” said James Hooke, Chief Executive Officer of MIC.

“The acquisition of the Flightcraft assets follows the successful sales of certain smaller FBOs in the Atlantic network and reflects the effective redeployment of the proceeds into two high-quality operations,” added Hooke. “Furthermore, Atlantic was able to sell FBOs at a higher multiple of EBITDA (earnings before interest taxes depreciation and amortization) making these acquisitions accretive to their financial results.”

FBOs provide fuel and fuel-related services, terminal operations and aircraft hangaring services to the general aviation community. The FBOs at both the Portland and Eugene airports are the sole providers of these services.

Subject to the satisfaction of the conditions precedent in the purchase agreement, including consent of the relevant airport authorities, MIC expects to close the transaction in August.
