oversight across its portfolio of commercial and corporate aircraft

contract continuously for the past fifteen years.
The award, which has a maximum potential value of $1.2 Million,
requires IBA to:

interests and protect the aircraft.
As ISTAT Certified Appraisers, IBA is expertly qualified to
support Ex-Im Bank's requirements for aircraft valuations covering
all US-manufactured commercial and corporate aircraft and
helicopters as well as engines and spare parts.

have been once again selected by Ex-Im Bank to provide technical
support and related support services. This bears testimony to our
ability to provide comprehensive asset management services to the
