MERGER OF TRITON CONTAINER INTERNATIONAL LIMITED AND TAL INTERNATIONAL GROUP, INC. TO FORM TRITON INTERNATIONAL LIMITED

On November 9, 2015, TAL and Triton Container International Limited ("TCIL") announced that they entered into a definitive agreement, under which the companies agreed to combine in an all-stock merger, pursuant to the Transaction Agreement, dated as of November 9, 2015 (the "Transaction Agreement"), by and among TAL, Triton International Limited ("Triton" or the "Company"), TCIL, Ocean Delaware Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and direct wholly owned subsidiary of Triton, and Ocean Bermuda Sub Limited, a Bermuda exempted company and direct wholly owned subsidiary of Triton. On July 12, 2016, TAL and TCIL combined under Triton, a holding company, which is domiciled in Bermuda and is listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol "TRTN".

Post-Transaction Organization Structure Relevant to this Form 10-Q

On July 12, 2016, the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Agreement (the "mergers") were approved by the stockholders of TAL and became effective. Immediately following the completion of the mergers, former TCIL shareholders owned approximately 55% of the outstanding equity of the Company and former TAL stockholders owned approximately 45% of the outstanding equity of the Company. Triton, through its subsidiaries, leases intermodal transportation equipment, primarily maritime containers, and provides maritime container management services through a worldwide network of offices, third-party depots and other facilities. The Company operates through its subsidiaries in both international and U.S. markets. The majority of Triton’s business is derived from leasing its containers to shipping line customers through a variety of long-term and short-term contractual lease arrangements. Triton also sells its own containers and containers purchased from third parties and enters into management agreements with third party container owners under which Triton manages the leasing and selling of containers on behalf of the third party owners for a fee. The Company's registered office is located at 22 Victoria Street, Hamilton HM12, Bermuda.
Following the completion of the mergers, Brian M. Sondey, who was the Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of TAL, serves as the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Triton; Simon R. Vernon, who was the President and Chief Executive Officer of TCIL, serves as President of Triton; and John Burns, who was the Chief Financial Officer of TAL, serves as the Chief Financial Officer of Triton.

TRITON INTERNATIONAL LIMITED
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS


Note 1—Description of the Business, Basis of Presentation and Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
A.    Description of the Business
Triton, through its subsidiaries, leases intermodal transportation equipment, primarily maritime containers, and provides maritime container management services through a worldwide network of service subsidiaries, third-party depots and other facilities. The Company operates in both international and U.S. markets. The majority of Triton’s business is derived from leasing its containers to shipping line customers through a variety of long-term and short-term contractual lease arrangements. Triton also sells its own containers and containers purchased from third parties and enters into management agreements with third party container owners under which the Company manages the leasing and selling of containers on behalf of the third party owners for a fee. The Company's registered office is located at 22 Victoria Street, Hamilton HM12, Bermuda.
B.    Basis of Presentation
The consolidated financial statements of Triton presented herein reflect, for each period presented below that follows the completion of the mergers, the consolidated results of operations of TAL and TCIL. The consolidated financial statements of Triton presented herein represent the historical financial statements of TCIL, the accounting acquirer, and also reflect the results of operations of TAL after July 12, 2016, the date of the acquisition.
In addition, certain information and note disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations, although the Company believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. These financial statements reflect, in the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly the results for the interim periods. The results of operations for such interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full year. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included in the Company's Form S-4 filed with the SEC, on May 6, 2016 and our other reports filed with the SEC through the current date pursuant to the Exchange Act.
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements. Such estimates include our estimates in connection with purchase accounting, residual value, depreciable lives, values of assets held for sale, and estimates related to the bankruptcy of a lessee (including amounts for recoveries under insurance policies as described below) among others. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation. Certain reclassifications have been made to the accompanying prior period financial statements and notes to conform to the current year's presentation.
C.    Impact from Lessee Bankruptcy
On August 31, 2016, Hanjin Shipping Co. ("Hanjin"), a lessee of the Company, filed for court protection and immediately began a liquidation process. At that time, we had approximately 87,000 container units on lease to Hanjin with a net book value of $243.3 million.

The Company maintains credit insurance to cover the value of such containers that are unrecoverable, costs incurred to recover containers and a portion of lost lease revenue, (limited up to six months or until a container is recovered, repaired, and available for re-lease) all subject to a deductible. In connection with the Hanjin bankruptcy, the Company has recorded a charge to bad debt expense in the three and nine-months ended September 30, 2016 of $23.4 million, and an accrual for additional costs not expected to be recovered under our insurance policies due to the deductible limits of $6.5 million. Upon the announcement of the Hanjin bankruptcy, the Company ceased recognizing revenue from the customer which amounted to $6.3 million during the three and nine-months ended September 30, 2016. A portion of this lost revenue has been applied towards the deductible under the policies. The Company has recorded a receivable under one insurance policy of approximately $0.6 million since the deductible has been achieved. At the present time, the Company believes the anticipated losses as a result of Hanjin will be recoverable under the insurance policies, subject to the deductible limits.
The Company estimates that a large portion of its equipment will ultimately be recovered, and this estimate has been considered into the estimated loss described above.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Continued)

Note 1—Description of the Business, Basis of Presentation and Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements (continued)
D.    New Accounting Pronouncements
In March 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-08 ("ASU No. 2016-08"), Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), amending previous updates regarding this topic. The effective date is interim periods beginning after December 15, 2017. Earlier application is permitted. The Company is evaluating the transition method that will be elected and the potential effects of adopting the provisions of ASU No. 2016-08.
In August 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-15 ("ASU No. 2014-15"), Presentation of Financial Statements (Topic 205): Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity's Ability to Continue as a Going Concern. This standard requires management to evaluate whether there are conditions or events, considered in the aggregate, that raise substantial doubt about the entity’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date that financial statements are issued and to disclose those conditions if management has concluded that substantial doubt exists. Subsequent to adoption, this guidance will need to be applied by management at the end of each annual period and interim period therein to determine what, if any, impact there will be on the Consolidated Financial Statements in a given reporting period. These changes become effective for the Company for the 2016 annual period. Management has determined that the adoption of these changes will not have an impact on the Consolidated Financial Statements as this standard is disclosure only.
In April 2015, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2015-03 ("ASU No. 2015-03"), Imputation of Interest (Topic 835): Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs, which was updated in August 2015 by Accounting Standards Update No. 2015-15 ("ASU No. 2015-15"), Imputation of Interest (Topic 835): Presentation and Subsequent Measurement of Debt Issuance Costs Associated with Line-of-Credit Agreements. These standards change the presentation of debt issuance costs in the financial statements but do not affect the recognition and measurement of debt issuance costs. Generally, the ASU specifies that debt issuance costs related to debt shall be reported in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the face amount of that note and that amortization of debt issuance costs also shall be reported as interest expense. These changes became effective for the Company as of December 31, 2015. The Company adopted ASU No. 2015-15 in conjunction with ASU No. 2015-03, with no impact on its results of operations or cash flows and no material impact on its financial position.
In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-02 ("ASU No. 2016-02"), Leases (Topic 842) that replaces existing lease guidance. The accounting applied by lessors under Topic 842 is largely unchanged from previous GAAP. The new lease guidance will become effective for the Company for periods beginning after December 15, 2018. The Company is currently evaluating the effect the guidance will have on the Consolidated Financial Statements, but does not expect any material impact to its Consolidated Financial Statements.
In March 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-09 ("ASU No. 2016-09"), Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting. The updated guidance changes how companies account for certain aspects of share-based payment awards to employees, including the accounting for income taxes, forfeitures, and statutory tax withholding requirements, as well as classification in the statement of cash flows. The update to the standard is effective for the Company for periods beginning after December 15, 2016. The Company is currently evaluating the effect the guidance will have on the Consolidated Financial Statements.

Note 2—Common Shares
As of July 12, 2016, the effective time of the mergers, Triton is authorized to issue up to 294,000,000 (par value $0.01) common shares and up to 6,000,000 (par value $0.01) undesignated shares.
In the event of a voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of Triton, the holders of Triton common shares will be entitled to share equally in any of the assets available for distribution after Triton has paid in full all of its debts.
Triton common shares issued upon the completion of the mergers on July 12, 2016 were validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable (meaning that no further sums are required to be paid by the holders of such shares in connection with the issue of such shares). Holders of Triton common shares will not be entitled to preemptive rights. Triton common shares will not be convertible into shares of any other class of common shares.
Note 3—Acquisition
On November 9, 2015, TCIL and TAL announced that they entered into a definitive agreement, under which the companies agreed to combine in an all-stock merger, pursuant to the Transaction Agreement, dated as of November 9, 2015 (the "Transaction Agreement"), by and among TAL, Triton International Limited ("Triton" or the "Company"), TCIL, Ocean Delaware Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and direct wholly owned subsidiary of Triton, and Ocean Bermuda Sub Limited, a Bermuda exempted company and direct wholly owned subsidiary of Triton.
On July 12, 2016, the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Agreement (the "mergers") were approved by the stockholders of TAL and became effective. Immediately following the completion of the mergers, former TCIL shareholders owned approximately 55% of the outstanding equity of the Company and former TAL stockholders owned approximately 45% of the outstanding equity of the Company.
The Company has accounted for the mergers described above under the acquisition method of accounting in accordance with the FASB Accounting Standards Topic No. 805, Business Combinations (“ASC No. 805”). Triton has been treated as the acquirer in the mergers for accounting purposes. In making the determination of the accounting acquirer, Triton considered all pertinent information and facts related to the combined entity as identified by ASC No. 805-10-55-12 to 15, which included relative voting rights, presence of a large minority interest, composition of the Board of Directors and senior management, terms of the exchange of equity interests, and relative size. In the aggregate, it was concluded that factors, such as the former Triton shareholders’ 55% voting rights in the combined entity, after considering certain voting limitations, the presence of a large minority voting interest concentrated within the former Company shareholders and the relative size of Triton in relation to TAL, indicated that Triton should be the accounting acquirer.
The consideration for the transaction was paid in common shares of Triton with TAL stockholders receiving one common share of Triton in exchange for each share of TAL common shares of 33.4 million and TCIL’s shareholders received approximately 0.80 of Triton common shares for each of TCIL's common shares. The fair value of the consideration, or the purchase price in the following preliminary purchase price allocation is approximately $510.2 million. This amount was derived based on the fair value of the shares issued to former TAL shareholders.
Triton has allocated the purchase price to the fair value of the TAL assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on preliminary estimates. The preliminary purchase price allocation below has been developed based on preliminary estimates of fair value using the historical financial statements of TAL as of July 12, 2016. In addition, the allocation of the purchase price to acquired tangible and intangible assets is based on preliminary fair value estimates and is subject to final management analysis, with the assistance of third-party valuation advisers.
Since the date of acquisition, total leasing revenues and net loss attributable to shareholders include TAL's results of $94.6 million and $22.6 million, respectively.

Note 4—Fair Value of Financial Instruments
The Company believes that the carrying amounts of its cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, equipment purchases payable, and accounts payable approximated their fair value as of September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015.
Fair value represents the price that would be received upon the sale of an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. The Company utilizes the following fair value hierarchy when selecting inputs for its valuation techniques, with the highest priority given to Level 1:
Level 1—Financial assets and liabilities whose values are based on observable inputs such as quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets (unadjusted).
Level 2—Financial assets and liabilities whose values are based on observable inputs such as (i) quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets, (ii) quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active, or (iii) model-derived valuations in which all significant inputs are observable in active markets.
Level 3—Financial assets and liabilities whose values are derived from valuation techniques based on one or more significant unobservable inputs.
The Company does not record debt at fair value in its consolidated balance sheets. The fair value, which was measured using Level 2 inputs, and the carrying value of the Company's debt is listed in the table below as of the dates indicated (in thousands):

The Company accounts for compensation cost relating to share-based payment transactions in accordance with the FASB Accounting Standards Codification No. 718, Compensation-Stock Compensation. The cost is measured at the grant date, based on the calculated fair value of the award, and is recognized as an expense over the employee's requisite service period (generally the vesting period of the equity award) on a straight-line basis.
Unvested restricted shares of approximately 538,000 as of September 30, 2016 were considered anti-dilutive due to net losses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016.
TCIL

Share Options

Effective May 23, 2011, TCIL adopted a share-based compensation plan (the “Option Plan”) for the benefit of certain executives of TCIL and its consolidated subsidiaries. The Option Plan allows for the issuance of service-based and market-based options.

On November 9, 2015, TCIL entered into option transaction agreements (the “Option Transaction Agreements”) with option holders in anticipation of the closing of the merger with TAL. In accordance with the terms of the Option Transaction Agreements, TCIL settled and cancelled all vested and unvested market-based options as of November 9, 2015 in exchange for 865,157 fully vested Class A common shares at $14.51 per share, of which approximately 371,000 were redeemed to satisfy tax withholding obligations in respect of the settlement.

On July 8, 2016, TCIL settled and cancelled all vested and unvested service-based options in exchange for approximately 647,000 fully vested Class A common shares at $10.94 per share, of which approximately 291,000 were redeemed to satisfy tax withholding obligations in respect of the settlement.

Restricted Shares

On July 8, 2016, approximately 143,000 restricted Class A common shares were issued to Option Plan participants after approval and authorization by the Board of Directors. The shares were granted at $10.94, which will be amortized on a straight line basis over an approximately 30-month vesting period. On July 12, 2016, the 143,000 restricted Class A common shares were converted to approximately 114,000 common shares of the Company under the terms of the mergers pursuant to which TCIL shareholders received approximately 0.80 common shares of the Company for each of TCIL's common shares.

Non-Employee Director Equity Plan

On May 19, 2016, TCIL entered into equity repurchase and cash bonus agreements with certain management shareholders and non-employee directors whereby TCIL agreed to repurchase approximately 30,700 restricted Class A common shares at a fair market value redemption price of $12.26 per share. On July 12, 2016, these restricted Class A common shares became fully vested and converted as a result of the mergers.

TAL Stock Based Compensation Plan

TAL’s previously existing stock-based compensation plans consisted of the 2005 Management Omnibus Incentive Plan and the 2014 Equity Incentive Plan. The TAL restricted shares granted in 2014 and 2015 vested on July 12, 2016 upon the closing of
the mergers. A total of 140,000 restricted shares granted in January 2016 were converted to Triton restricted shares and will vest in approximately 2.25 years in accordance with their original terms. Unearned compensation expense of $1.4 million will be amortized to Administrative expenses on a straight line basis over the remaining vesting period.

Triton

2016 Triton Plan

On September 7, 2016, the Company’s Compensation Committee approved the grants of restricted shares to various executives, certain employees and directors. Under the Company’s 2016 Equity Incentive Plan the total number of restricted shares granted to executives and employees was approximately 418,000 at a fair value of $14.55 per share and will vest over 3 years. Additional shares may be granted based upon performance. There were approximately 47,000 shares granted at $14.55 per share to directors and these shares vested immediately on September 7, 2016. Total unrecognized compensation costs of approximately $6.8 million as of September 30, 2016 related to the September 2016 grants of restricted shares will be recognized over the remaining weighted average vesting period of approximately 2.9 years.

The Company evaluates potential losses in its finance lease portfolio by regularly reviewing the specific receivables in the portfolio and analyzing historical loss experience. Net investment in finance lease receivables is generally charged off after an analysis is completed which indicates that collection of the full balance is remote.
In order to estimate its allowance for losses contained in the gross finance lease receivables, the Company categorizes the credit worthiness of the receivables in the portfolio based on internal customer credit ratings, which are reviewed and updated, as appropriate, on an ongoing basis. The internal customer credit ratings are developed based on a review of the financial performance and condition, operating environment, geographical location and trade routes of our customers.

As of September 30, 2016, the Company had $3.3 billion of debt outstanding on facilities with fixed interest rates and $3.1 billion of debt outstanding on facilities with interest rates based on floating rate indices (primarily LIBOR). The Company economically hedges the risks associated with fluctuations in interest rates on a portion of its floating rate borrowings by entering into interest rate swap agreements that convert a portion of its floating rate debt to a fixed rate basis, thus reducing the impact of interest rate changes on future interest expense. As of September 30, 2016, the Company had interest rate swaps in place with a notional amount of $1.6 billion to fix the floating interest rates on a portion of its floating rate debt obligations.
The Company is subject to certain financial covenants under its debt facilities, and as of September 30, 2016, was in compliance with all such covenants.
Asset Backed Securitization Term Notes
On April 8, 2016, TCF-III and the holders of the TCF-III Series 2009-1 Notes restructured the TCF-III Series 2009-1 Notes from a warehouse facility to a five-year amortizing term loan. Effective April 8, 2016, TCF-III was no longer able to borrow under the TCF-III Series 2009-1 Notes. The outstanding principal balance of the TCF-III Series 2009-1 Notes at closing was $316.7 million. The contractual interest rate of the TCF-III Series 2009‑1 Notes was modified from (i) one-month LIBOR, or the commercial paper rate, plus an applicable margin of 1.60%, to (ii) one-month LIBOR, or the commercial paper rate, plus an applicable margin of 2.00%.
Between May 31, 2016 and June 1, 2016, TCF-III entered into three interest rate swap agreements in order to fix the interest rate on a portion of the outstanding principal balance of the TCF-III Series 2009-1 Notes. These interest rate swaps have fixed interest rates ranging between 1.11% and 1.12% per year and termination dates through April 2021 and had a total notional amount of $229.1 million at September 30, 2016.
TCIL Credit Facility
On April 15, 2016, TCIL and a group of commercial banks entered into an amendment and restatement of the TCIL Credit Facility providing for the extension of the facility termination date from November 4, 2016 to April 15, 2021, and the reduction of the aggregate commitment amount thereunder from $600.0 million (which was shared under the prior TCIL Credit Facility with the TCI Credit Facility) to an aggregate commitment, available to TCIL only, of $300.0 million. An accordion feature provided for up to $300.0 million of increased and/or additive commitments for TCIL (for a total of up to $600.0 million of aggregate commitments). No changes were made to the borrowing base or to the pricing of the TCIL Credit Facility.
On May 23, 2016, the aggregate commitments under the TCIL Credit Facility were increased to $555.0 million pursuant to the accordion feature. On August 31, 2016, the aggregate commitments under the TCIL Credit Facility were increased to $600.0 million.

Note 9—Derivative Instruments
Interest Rate Swaps
The Company has entered into interest rate swap agreements to manage interest rate risk exposure. Interest rate swap agreements utilized by the Company effectively modify the Company's exposure to interest rate risk by converting a portion of its floating rate debt to a fixed rate basis, thus reducing the impact of interest rate changes on future interest expense. Such agreements involve the receipt of floating rate amounts in exchange for fixed rate interest payments over the lives of the agreements without an exchange of the underlying principal amounts. The counterparties to the Company's interest rate swap agreements are highly rated financial institutions. In the unlikely event that the counterparties fail to meet the terms of the interest rate swap agreements, the Company's exposure is limited to the interest rate differential on the notional amount at each monthly settlement period over the life of the agreements. The Company does not anticipate any non-performance by the counterparties. Substantially all of the assets of certain indirect, wholly owned subsidiaries of the Company have been pledged as collateral for the underlying indebtedness and the amounts payable under the interest rate swap agreements for each of these entities. In addition, certain assets of the Company's subsidiaries are pledged as collateral for various credit facilities and the amounts payable under certain interest rate swap agreements.

As of September 30, 2016, the Company had interest rate swap agreements in place to fix the floating interest rates on a portion of the borrowings under its debt facilities as summarized below:

Fair Value of Derivative Instruments
Under the criteria established by ASC 820, the Company has elected to use the income approach to value its interest rate swap agreements, using observable Level 2 market expectations at the measurement date and standard valuation techniques to convert future amounts to a single present amount (discounted) assuming that participants are motivated, but not compelled to transact. The Level 2 inputs for the interest rate swap and forward valuations are limited to quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets and inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability (specifically LIBOR cash and swap rates, basis swap adjustments and credit risk at commonly quoted intervals).

The Company conducts its business activities in one industry, intermodal transportation equipment, and has two reporting segments:
Equipment leasing—the Company owns, leases and ultimately disposes of containers and chassis from its lease fleet, as well as manages leasing activities for containers owned by third parties.

Equipment trading—the Company purchases containers from shipping line customers, and other sellers of containers, and resells these containers to container retailers and users of containers for storage or one-way shipment. Included in the Equipment trading segment revenues are leasing revenues from equipment purchased for resale that is currently on lease until the containers are dropped off.
Triton acquired the Equipment trading segment as part of the acquisition on July 12, 2016 and had no such reporting segment prior to that time. The purchase price allocation and goodwill are preliminary estimates as of September 30, 2016, and therefore, the goodwill allocated to the equipment trading segment is also preliminary.
The following tables show segment information for the periods indicated and the consolidated totals reported (in thousands):

Segment income before income taxes excludes unrealized gains or losses on interest rate swaps and the write-off of deferred financing costs. Unrealized losses on interest rate swaps were $5.2 million and $5.8 million for the nine
months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. Write-offs of deferred financing costs for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 were $0.1 million and there were no such write-offs for the nine months ended September 30, 2015.

(2)
Represents cash disbursements for purchases of leasing equipment and investments in finance leases as reflected in the consolidated statements of cash flows for the periods indicated, but excludes cash flows associated with the purchase of equipment held for resale.
There are no intercompany revenues or expenses between segments. Additionally, certain administrative expenses have been allocated between segments based on an estimate of services provided to each segment. A portion of the Company's equipment purchased for resale was purchased through certain sale-leaseback transactions with our shipping line customers. Due to the expected longer term nature of these transactions, these purchases are reflected as leasing equipment as opposed to equipment held for sale and the cash flows associated with these transactions are reflected as purchases of leasing equipment and proceeds from the sale of equipment in investing activities in the Company's consolidated statements of cash flows.
Geographic Segment Information
The Company earns most of its leasing revenues from international containers which are deployed by its customers in a wide variety of global trade routes. Substantially all of the Company's leasing related revenue is denominated in U.S. dollars.

Note 11—Commitments and Contingencies
Purchase Commitments
At September 30, 2016, commitments for capital expenditures totaled approximately $123.2 million.
Note 12—Income Taxes
The consolidated income tax expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively, was determined primarily based upon estimates of the Company's consolidated effective income tax rates for the year ending December 31, 2016 and the year ended December 31, 2015. The difference between the consolidated effective income tax rate and the U.S. federal statutory rate is primarily attributable to state income taxes, foreign income taxes, and the effect of certain permanent tax differences. The effective tax rate change from 2015 to 2016 is directly attributable to the acquisition.

ITEM 2.    MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
        The following discussion and analysis of the consolidated financial condition and results of operations of Triton International Limited and its subsidiaries should be read in conjunction with related consolidated financial data and our annual audited consolidated financial statements and related notes thereto included in our Form S-4 filed with the SEC on May 6, 2016. The statements in this discussion regarding industry outlook, our expectations regarding our future performance, liquidity and capital resources and other non-historical statements are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to, the risks and uncertainties described herein and under "Risk Factors" and "Forward-Looking Statements" in our Form S-4. Our actual results may differ materially from those contained in or implied by any forward-looking statements.
Our Company
On July 12, 2016, TAL and TCIL combined in an all-stock merger. Under the terms of the Transaction Agreement, TAL and TCIL combined under a holding company, Triton, which is domiciled in Bermuda.
Triton is the world's largest and one of the oldest lessors of intermodal containers and chassis. Intermodal containers are large, standardized steel boxes used to transport freight by ship, rail or truck. Because of the handling efficiencies they provide, intermodal containers are the primary means by which many goods and materials are shipped internationally. Chassis are used for the transportation of containers.
We operate our business in one industry, intermodal transportation equipment, and have two business segments:
Equipment leasing - we own, lease and ultimately dispose of containers and chassis from our lease fleet, as well as manage containers owned by third parties.

Equipment trading - we purchase containers from shipping line customers, and other sellers of containers, and resell these containers to container retailers and users of containers for storage or one-way shipment.

Operations
Our operations include the acquisition, leasing, re-leasing and subsequent sale of multiple types of intermodal containers and chassis. As of September 30, 2016, our total fleet consisted of 3,029,183 containers and chassis, representing 4,950,384 twenty-foot equivalent units ("TEU"). We have an extensive global presence, offering leasing services through 21 service subsidiaries in 14 countries and approximately 490 third party container depot facilities in approximately 54 countries as of September 30, 2016. Our customers are among the largest shipping lines in the world. For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, our twenty largest customers accounted for 81% of our leasing revenues, our five largest customers accounted for 53% of our combined leasing revenues, our largest customer, CMA CGM, accounted for 16% of our leasing revenues, and our second largest customer, MSC, accounted for 15% of our leasing revenues.
We lease five types of equipment: (1) dry freight containers, which are used for general cargo such as manufactured component parts, consumer staples, electronics and apparel, (2) refrigerated containers, which are used for perishable items such as fresh and frozen foods, (3) special containers, which are used for heavy and over-sized cargo such as marble slabs, building products and machinery, (4) tank containers, which are used to transport bulk liquid products such as chemicals, and (5) chassis, which are used for the transportation of containers domestically. Our in-house equipment sales group manages the sale process for our used containers and chassis from our equipment leasing fleet and buys and sells used and new containers and chassis acquired from third parties.

(1) As of September 30, 2016, managed equipment accounted for 0.5%, 0.5%, and 0.3% of our equipment fleet in units, TEU, and CEU, respectively.                                 
In the equipment fleet tables above, we have included total fleet count information based on CEU. CEU is a ratio used to convert the actual number of containers in our fleet to a figure based on the relative purchase prices of our various equipment types to that of a 20 foot dry container. For example, the CEU ratio for a 40 foot standard height dry container is 1.6, and a 40 foot high cube refrigerated container is 10.0. The CEU ratios used in this calculation may differ slightly from current actual cost ratios and CEU ratios used by others in the industry.
The following table provides the percentage of our equipment fleet in units and of leasing revenues. TCIL and TAL fleet and leasing revenue information have been combined by mathematical addition prior to July 13, 2016. The percentage of our equipment fleet by equipment type as of September 30, 2016 and the percentage of our leasing revenues by equipment type for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 are as follows:

We generally lease our equipment on a per diem basis to our customers under three types of leases: long-term leases, finance leases and service leases. Long-term leases, typically with initial contractual terms ranging from three to eight years, provide us with stable cash flow and low transaction costs by requiring customers to maintain specific units on-hire for the duration of the lease. Finance leases, which are typically structured as full payout leases, provide for a predictable recurring

23


revenue stream with the lowest cost to the customer because customers are generally required to retain the equipment for the duration of its useful life. Service leases command a premium per diem rate in exchange for providing customers with a greater level of operational flexibility by allowing the pick-up and drop-off of units during the lease term. We also have expired long-term leases whose fixed terms have ended but for which the related units remain on-hire and for which we continue to receive rental payments pursuant to the terms of the initial contract. Some leases have contractual terms that have features reflective of both long-term and service leases and we classify such leases as either long-term or service leases, depending upon which features we believe are predominant.
The following table provides a summary of our equipment leasing fleet portfolio by lease type, based on CEU as of the dates indicated below. TCIL and TAL have been combined by mathematical addition for periods ending prior to July 13, 2016 for comparative purposes. These percentages do not necessarily reflect what the results would have been had the transaction occurred as of the beginning of last year.

As of September 30, 2016, December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2015, our long-term and finance leases combined had average remaining contract terms of approximately 36 months, 35 months, and 35 months respectively, assuming no leases are renewed.
Operating Performance
The following discussion of our operating performance refers to a variety of the Company’s critical business metrics, such as fleet size, utilization, average lease rates and used container sale volumes and prices. In this section, the relevant performance measures for TCIL and TAL have been combined by mathematical addition for comparative purposes for periods ending prior to July 13, 2016. These combined results do not necessarily reflect what the results would be if the transaction occurred as of the beginning of last year.
Fleet size.    As of September 30, 2016, our owned fleet included 6,406,191 CEU, an increase of 3.5% from the combined TCIL and TAL owned fleets as of December 31, 2015 and an increase of 4.3% from the combined owned fleets as of September 30, 2015. The increase in our fleet size from September 30, 2015 was primarily due to purchases of new containers and completion of several large sale-leaseback transactions in the last quarter of 2015 and during 2016.
Global containerized trade growth in 2016 has been relatively weak. Clarksons is currently projecting loaded container liftings to increase 3.3% in 2016, down from a long-term average growth rate near 10%. In 2015 and 2016, the rate of containerized trade growth has been negatively impacted by slower global economic growth and a stabilization in the level of global trade as a share of global GDP. Until recently, global trade was increasing as a share of global GDP, providing an extra lever for growth in global containerized trade.
Over the last twelve months, our equipment fleet has grown slightly faster than containerized trade growth, reflecting an increase in the share of leased containers relative to the share of containers owned by our shipping line customers. The increased share for leased containers reflects an increase in the portion of containers purchased by leasing companies and increased interest from our customers in concluding sale-leaseback transactions for previously owned containers in their fleets. Our shipping line customers have faced several years of weak freight rates and poor profitability due to excess vessel capacity, making leased containers a more attractive option relative to direct investment.
As of November 4, 2016, TCIL and TAL, on a combined basis have invested approximately $845 million in new and sale-leaseback containers for delivery in 2016. Over $600 million of this combined investment has been placed in the second half of 2016, reflecting a recent improvement in leasing demand. Leasing demand had been weak from the second quarter of 2015 through the middle of 2016. The low rate of trade growth in 2015 was not expected, and we faced an excess supply of containers in 2015 due to over-ordering early in the year. Shipping lines and leasing companies reduced their level of container ordering starting in the summer of 2015, and global supply and demand for containers returned to balance by the summer of 2016.

24


During the third quarter and so far in the fourth quarter of 2016, the pace of leasing transactions and our lease-out activity accelerated, and in response, we have begun to purchase new containers more aggressively. We also concluded a large sale-leaseback transaction in the third quarter. We currently expect leasing demand to remain strong into 2017.
Utilization.    Our average utilization was 92.4% during the third quarter of 2016, a decrease from 93.3% in the second quarter of 2016 and a decrease from 96.2% in the third quarter of 2015. This decrease was due to weak leasing demand and the excess supply of containers that developed during 2015. Our utilization started to increase during the second quarter of 2016 as the global supply / demand balance for containers started to improve. Our utilization continued to increase during the third quarter, peaking at 94.0% as of August 30th. However, on August 31, Hanjin, one of our largest customers filed for court protection and defaulted on our leases. Roughly 3% of our containers were on-hire to Hanjin, and since we are no longer accruing revenue on these containers, they are reflected as off-hire for the purpose of calculating utilization. We currently have recovered or issued delivery clearances for approximately 50% of the containers previously on-hire to Hanjin, and we expect to have recovered up to 70% of the containers by the end of 2016. Our utilization will benefit as more of the containers are recovered and redeployed into the leasing market. Our utilization also continues to be supported by the high percentage of our units that are on-hire to customers on long-term or finance leases.
The following tables set forth our equipment fleet utilization(1) for the periods indicated below.

Utilization is computed by dividing our total units on lease (in CEU) by the total units in our fleet (in CEU) excluding new units not yet leased and off-hire units designated for sale.
Average lease rates.    Average lease rates in the third quarter of 2016 for our dry container product line decreased by 12.6% from the third quarter of 2015. New container prices have decreased significantly over the last several years due to a significant drop in steel prices in China and a decrease in the demand for new containers. Very low long-term interest rates and aggressive competition for new leasing transactions have combined with low new container prices to push market lease rates to historical low levels. New container prices and market lease rates appear to have bottomed in the second quarter of 2016. New container prices, leasing demand and market lease rates for dry containers improved during the third quarter of 2016, and the increase in market lease rates has continued into the fourth quarter. However, market lease rates remain well below our portfolio average.
Low market lease rates negatively impact our overall average lease rates as we add new containers to our fleet and as leases covering existing containers expire and are re-priced. If market lease rates remain near their current low level, we expect the decrease in our average dry container lease rates will continue for the remainder of 2016 and into 2017.
Average lease rates in the third quarter of 2016 for our refrigerated container product line decreased by 5.6% from the third quarter of 2015. For several years our average lease rates for refrigerated containers have been negatively impacted by the addition of new refrigerated containers placed on lease at rates lower than our portfolio average. The cost of refrigerated containers has trended down over the last few years, which has led to lower market lease rates. Lease rates for new refrigerated containers are also being negatively impacted by aggressive pricing from new entrants seeking to build market share.
The average lease rates for special containers decreased approximately 3.2% in the third quarter of 2016 compared to the third quarter of 2015. This decrease is mainly the result of certain lease renegotiations.
Equipment disposals.  We have been recording sizable losses on container disposals since the middle of 2015 due to decreasing used container sale prices. Used container sale prices for dry containers decreased 51% from January 1, 2015 through June 30, 2016. During this time, used container sale prices were negatively impacted by increased selling volumes due to a global excess supply of containers and lower prices for new containers. Disposal prices stabilized in the third quarter of 2016 and have started to increase slightly due to the improvement in the global container supply and demand balance and the increase in new container prices. If leasing demand and new container prices remain at their current level, we expect used container selling prices to increase further.

While still significant, the level of disposal losses recorded in the third quarter of 2016 was meaningfully reduced from the combined TCIL and TAL disposal loss in the second quarter of 2016. In the second quarter, we recorded disposal losses on containers sold in the quarter as well as a large mark-to-market loss on our inventory of containers held for sale, which reflected the impact of the decrease in our average selling prices during the quarter. The stabilization of sale prices in the third quarter led to a lower mark-to-market adjustment.
Hanjin Bankruptcy.    On August 31, 2016, Hanjin, one of our largest customers, filed for bankruptcy court protection and defaulted on our lease agreements. Hanjin quickly ceased active operations and notified us that they would terminate our lease agreements. Hanjin had approximately 87,000 containers on lease with a net book value of $243.3 million.
We maintain more than $100 million of credit insurance to cover the value of containers that are unrecoverable, costs incurred to recover containers and up to six months of lost lease revenue, subject to our deductibles. Accordingly, the Company estimated the negative impact of Hanjin, net of the expected insurance recovery proceeds to be $29.7 million in the third quarter. This impact was reflected as a $23.4 million charge to bad debt expense and $6.3 million of unrecognized lease revenue, the majority of which was applied toward the insurance deductible of $6.5 million. We expect the financial impact of the Hanjin default to be lower in future periods. Over the next few quarters, we expect that insurance accruals will offset most of the costs we incur recovering and redeploying containers, though we will not recognize expected insurance payments related to lost revenue of approximately $3 million per month for all of the containers on-lease to Hanjin until the payments are received.
The recovery process related to the Hanjin default remains a major operational effort. We have gained control or have issued delivery clearances for about 50% of our containers previously on-hire to Hanjin, and we expect the share of recovered containers will increase to be in the range of 70% by the end of the year. We expect we will eventually recover the vast majority of our containers, but it will take time to recover the “tail” of containers that are scattered across many locations.
We remain concerned with the overall credit risk of our customers. The container shipping industry has been suffering from excess vessel capacity and low freight rates for several years, and most of our shipping line customers are currently generating losses. Many of our customers also have a high degree of financial leverage. We anticipate that the high volume of new vessels entering service over the next several years will complicate our customers’ efforts to increase freight rates, and we expect our customers’ financial performance will remain under pressure for some time.
