1. Description of the Business and Basis of Presentation
 
The accompanying consolidated financial statements of SeaCube Container Leasing Ltd. (the “Company” or “SeaCube”) are unaudited and have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) for interim financial reporting and, in our opinion, reflect all adjustments, including normal recurring items, which are necessary to present fairly the results for interim periods.  Operating results for the periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the entire year.  Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been omitted in accordance with the rules and regulations of the SEC; however, we believe that the disclosures are adequate to make information presented not misleading.  These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.
 
The Company purchases intermodal containers and leases them to shipping and transportation companies, both domestically and internationally. Containers include refrigerated and dry freight containers as well as generator sets, which are leased to shipping line customers through a variety of long-term and short-term contractual leasing arrangements.  The Company operates in a single segment.
 
SeaCube was incorporated by Seacastle Operating Company Ltd. (the “Initial Shareholder” or “Seacastle Operating”) in Bermuda in March 2010.  Container Leasing International, LLC (d/b/a SeaCube Containers, LLC), the entity through which we conduct all of our operations (“CLI”), was founded in 1993 and was acquired by an affiliate of the Initial Shareholder in 2006. On October 27, 2010, the SEC declared effective the registration statement relating to the Company’s initial public offering (“IPO”).

New Accounting Pronouncements
 
Adopted in 2012
 
In June 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-05, Presentation of Comprehensive Income (“ASU 2011-05”), which eliminates the option to present other comprehensive income and its components in the statement of shareholders’ equity.  The Company may either present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements.  The Company adopted ASU 2011-05 on January 1, 2012 and now presents the components of net income and other comprehensive income in two separate but consecutive statements.

    $ 879,690     $ 205,101     $ 674,589  

The Company does not record an allowance for credit losses associated with direct finance leases. The Company maintains a strong credit performance due to our comprehensive credit underwriting and monitoring in addition to certain attributes of our business including the size and quality of our customers and our ability to recover containers and remarket them in default situations.
 
As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the Company had guaranteed and unguaranteed residual values for leasing equipment on direct finance leases of $121,884 and $113,476, respectively.  As of December 31, 2011, the Company had total lease receivables, unearned lease income and net lease receivables of $842,321, $203,073 and $639,248, respectively. The unguaranteed residual values are reflected in the ‘‘Net Lease Receivables’’ above.

The Company has debt obligations that are collateralized by the Company’s restricted cash, leasing equipment and net investment in direct finance leases.  As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, assets pledged as collateral on the Company’s debt amounted to $1,454,685 and $1,406,502, respectively.
 
5. Derivatives and Hedging Activities
 
In the normal course of business the Company utilizes interest rate derivatives to manage our exposure to interest rate risks.  Specifically, interest rate derivatives are hedging variable rate interest payments on its various debt facilities.  If certain conditions are met, an interest rate derivative may be specifically designated as a cash flow hedge.  All of the Company’s designated interest rate derivatives are cash flow hedges.  For effective cash flow hedges, changes in fair value are recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) and subsequently reclassified into earnings when the interest payments on the debt are recorded in earnings.
 
The Company’s interest rate derivatives involve counterparty credit risk.  As of June 30, 2012, all of the Company’s interest rate derivatives are held with counterparties or guaranteed by parties with a credit rating of at least A3 by Moody’s.  The Company monitors the credit risk associated with these instruments periodically to validate that it is probable that the counterparty (or guarantor) will perform.  As of June 30, 2012, the Company does not anticipate that any of these counterparties will fail to meet their obligations.  As of June 30, 2012, there are no credit risk related contingent features in any of the Company’s derivative agreements.

As of June 30, 2012, the amount of Accumulated OCI related to derivatives was $26,508.  The amount of loss expected to be reclassified from OCI into interest expense over the next 12 months consists of net interest settlements on active interest rate derivatives in the amount of $15,289 and the amortization of deferred net losses on the Company’s terminated derivatives of $1,838.
 
6. Income Taxes
 
The consolidated income tax expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 was determined based upon estimates of the Company's consolidated effective income tax rates for the years ending December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The Company’s effective tax rate differs from the U.S. federal tax rate of 35% primarily due to its nontaxed or lower foreign sourced income.  The Company is not subject to taxation in its country of incorporation.  In addition, although the Company is subject to taxation in certain other jurisdictions, none of those taxable amounts are material.
 
7. Commitments and Contingencies
 
Lease Commitments
 
The Company and its subsidiaries are parties to various operating leases relating to office facilities, transportation vehicles, and certain other equipment with various expiration dates through 2016. All leasing arrangements contain normal leasing terms without unusual purchase options or escalation clauses.
 
As of June 30, 2012, the aggregate minimum rental commitment under operating leases having initial or remaining noncancelable lease terms in excess of one year was $960.

The Company recorded compensation expense of $459 and $862 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively, and $291 and $574 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively. Compensation expense is recorded as a component of selling, general and administrative expenses in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations. Total unrecognized compensation cost was approximately $3,510 at June 30, 2012 which is expected to be recognized over the remaining weighted-average vesting period of 2.1 years.
 
9. Earnings per Share and Dividends
 
The computation of basic earnings per share is based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding including participating securities outstanding during the period.  Diluted EPS is calculated by dividing Net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period while also giving effect to all potentially dilutive common shares based on the treasury stock method.
 
In accordance with the Earnings per Share Topic, any unvested share-based payment awards that contain nonforfeitable rights to dividends or dividend equivalents (whether paid or unpaid) are participating securities and shall be included in the computation of EPS pursuant to the two-class method.  Accordingly, all of the Company’s restricted common shares are participating securities.

Derivative instruments
    38,750             38,750        
 
Restricted cash:  Restricted cash consists of cash that is held by the Company for security deposits received from lessees pursuant to the terms of various lease agreements and rent collections held in lockbox accounts pursuant to the Company’s credit facilities and securitization agreements.
 
Derivative instruments:  The Company’s interest rate derivatives are recorded at fair value on the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets and consist of United States dollar denominated LIBOR-based interest rate derivatives, and their fair values are determined using cash flows discounted at relevant market interest rates in effect at the period close. The fair value generally reflects the estimated amounts that the Company would receive or pay to transfer the contracts at the reporting date and therefore reflects the Company’s or counterparty’s non-performance risk.
 
Leasing assets held for sale are measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis.  The fair value is calculated using the income approach based on inputs classified as level 2 in the fair value hierarchy.  There were no other assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis.
 
The Company’s financial instruments, other than cash, consist principally of cash equivalents, restricted cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable, debt and interest rate derivatives.  The fair value of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, accounts receivable and accounts payable approximates the carrying value of these financial instruments because of their short-term nature.  The fair values of our debt are estimated using a discounted cash flow analysis, based on our current incremental borrowing rates for similar types of borrowing arrangements.

This management’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties.  You should read the following discussion in conjunction with our historical consolidated financial statements included in this Form 10-Q and our annual audited consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011. The results of operations for the periods reflected herein are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for future periods, and our actual results may differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including but not limited to those listed under ‘‘Risk Factors’’ included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Overview
 
SeaCube Container Leasing Ltd (“SeaCube” or “the Company”) is one of the world’s largest container leasing companies based on total assets.  Containers are the primary means by which products are shipped internationally because they facilitate efficient movement of goods via multiple transportation modes including ships, rail and trucks.  The principal activities of our business include the acquisition, leasing, re-leasing and subsequent sale of refrigerated and dry containers and generator sets.  The Company leases our containers primarily under long-term contracts to a diverse group of the world’s leading shipping lines.  As of June 30, 2012, we employ 77 people in seven offices worldwide and have total assets of 1.6 billion.
 
As of June 30, 2012, we own or manage a fleet of 585,239 units, representing 919,975 TEUs of containers and generator sets.  For the three months ended June 30, 2012, our average utilization was 97.8%, as measured in units.
 
We lease three types of assets:

Refrigerated containers (‘‘reefers’’), which are used for perishable items such as fresh and frozen foods;
Dry freight containers, which are used for general cargo such as manufactured component parts, consumer staples and apparel; and
Generator sets (‘‘gensets’’), which are diesel generators used to provide mobile power to reefers.
 
We lease these assets on a per diem basis on two principal lease types under which the lessee is responsible for all operating costs including taxes, insurance and maintenance:

Operating leases, typically with initial terms of five to eight years, under which containers are re-leased or returned to us at expiration of the initial lease; and
Direct finance leases, which are typically structured as long-term leases with a bargain purchase option, under which ownership transfers to the lessee at expiration of the lease.

Direct Operating Expenses
 
Direct operating expenses were $1.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $1.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011, an increase of $0.2 million or 13%.  During the current year period, more containers were returned upon the completion of their lease than in the prior year period resulting in higher positioning as well as maintenance and repair costs.
 
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses
 
Selling, general and administrative expenses were $6.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $5.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011, an increase of $0.4 million or 6%.  This is primarily due to merit increases and higher incentive compensation expense in the current period.
 
Depreciation Expenses
 
Depreciation of leasing equipment was $13.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $11.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011, an increase of $2.2 million or 20%. Depreciation on new additions net of disposals and sales accounted for an increase of $2.4 million, which was partially offset by a decrease of $0.2 million due to equipment reaching the end of their depreciable lives.
 
Provision for Doubtful Accounts
 
Provision for doubtful accounts was $0.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $0.04 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011.  In the current quarter, provision for doubtful account increased moderately compared to the prior year period.
 
Impairment of Leasing Equipment Held for Sale
 
We recorded an impairment of leasing equipment held for sale of $0.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011, an increase of $0.4 million. We evaluate the recovery of our containers and gensets designated for sale and record a loss if the ultimate sales value is expected to be below the current carrying cost.  The majority of our impairments occur at the conclusion of an operating lease when our equipment is older and has incurred a certain amount of damage that the lessee is responsible for.  These impairments do not include amounts that we recover from lessees to return containers to leasable condition, in accordance with industry standards. We bill our lessees for the cost to repair equipment to this industry standard even if we do not repair the container. This revenue is recorded as Other Revenue and does not offset impairment losses.  In the current year period, we had more containers returned and sold upon the completion of their lease term.

Interest Expense
 
Interest expense was $16.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $14.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011, an increase of $2.4 million or 16%.  Our weighted average debt balance for the three months ended June 30, 2012 increased by approximately $249 million due to our investment in new containers.  This resulted in an increase of approximately $3 million to interest expense.  This increase was offset by a decrease in non-cash interest expense in the current period by $0.6 million.  Higher amortization of deferred financing fees of $0.4 million was offset by an increase in gains recognized directly into income for ineffective derivatives of $0.6 million and lower amortization of terminated derivatives of $0.4 million.

Other expense (income), net was $(0.8) million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $0.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011.  This is attributable to higher gains on the sale of equipment in the current year period due to more containers being returned and sold upon the completion of leases.

Net Income
 
Net income was $23.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $18.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011. The increase in net income was attributable to the items above.

In addition to the changes in net income noted above, the six months ended June 30, 2012, includes an increase in the non-cash interest expense of $1.4 million, which is excluded from the adjusted net income calculation.
 
Adjusted EBITDA
 
Adjusted EBITDA was $141.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $113.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, an increase of $27.9 million or 25%. In addition to the changes in net income noted above, the six months ended June 30, 2012, includes higher depreciation of $5.2 million and higher interest expense of $9.8 million, which are excluded from the adjusted EBITDA calculation.  In addition, the current year period had higher collections on investments in direct financing leases of $8.1 million.
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
We have historically met our liquidity requirements primarily from the following sources:
 
 
Revenues including operating lease revenues, total finance lease collections, billings to lessors for repairs and maintenance, and asset management fees. Cash flows from operating activities and principal collections on finance leases were $117.3 million and $97.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.
 
 
Lines of credit and other secured borrowings, under which $1,232.2 million was outstanding and $403.0 million was available as of June 30, 2012.
 
 
Sales of our older leasing equipment, which was $11.1 million and $5.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.
 
We expect that our cash flows from our operations, principal collections on direct finance leases, existing credit facilities and sales of older equipment will be sufficient to meet our liquidity needs.  Our current projections of cash flows from operations and the availability of funds under our revolving credit agreement are expected to be sufficient to fund our maturing debt and contractual obligations in the next several years.  In the future, we will need to borrow funds to finance the purchases of new assets we intend to buy to expand our business.
 
On March 27, 2012, CLI Funding IV LLC, an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, amended and restated in its entirety its existing credit facility, dated May 18, 2010 (as amended and restated, the “Amended and Restated Credit Agreement”).  The Amended and Restated Credit Agreement increases the total commitments of the Lenders available to $300 million from $200 million and extends the Scheduled Termination Date to March 27, 2014, from May 9, 2013.  On June 21, 2012, CLI Funding V LLC, an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, completed the offering of $225 million aggregate principal amount of Series 2012-1 Fixed Rate Secured Notes ("Series 2012-1 Notes"). The Series 2012-1 Notes were issued with an annual interest rate of 4.21%, have a scheduled maturity date of December 18, 2022 and a legal final maturity date of June 18, 2027. The transaction documents contain customary affirmative and negative covenants, financial covenants, representations and warranties, and events of default, which are subject to various exceptions and qualifications. On June 27, 2012, CLI amended and restated its existing revolving credit agreement, dated November 3, 2010 (as amended and restated, the “Fifth Amended and Restated Revolving Credit Agreement”).  The Fifth Amended and Restated Revolving Credit Agreement (i) increases the total commitments of the lenders available to CLI to $150 million from $120 million; and (ii) extends the Maturity Date (as defined therein) to June 27, 2015, from November 3, 2013. We will use the net proceeds of these offerings for container purchases and other general business purposes.

Foreign Cash
 
As of June 30, 2012, substantially all of the Company’s cash and cash equivalents are held in banks in the United States.
 
Covenants
 
The Company’s debt instruments contain typical representations and covenants for loans of this type that, among other things, restrict the ability of CLI and certain restricted subsidiaries, to incur indebtedness and/or create liens against its assets and/or to make investments, to dispose of assets, to merge or consolidate with any other person, to engage in transactions with affiliates except on an arm's-length basis in the ordinary course of business, or  to incur certain restrictions or prohibitions on granting liens and/or making distributions, dividends or similar payments. For all of our asset-backed securitizations and our Container Revolving Credit Facility, CLI shall not permit the tangible net worth of CLI and its subsidiaries at any time to be less than the amount stated in the respective agreements ($175 million for the CLI Funding Series 2006-1 Notes and the CLI Funding V Credit Facility and $200 million for the Container Revolving Credit Facility, the CLI Funding III Credit Facility, and the CLI Funding IV Credit Facility). In addition, for the Container Revolving Credit Facility and the CLI Funding IV Credit Facility, CLI will also be required to comply with a maximum consolidated leverage ratio of 5.25 times adjusted EBITDA through the third anniversary of the facility and of 5.00 times adjusted EBITDA with respect to the time period thereafter.  At June 30, 2012, the Company was in compliance with all of the covenants described above.
 
Liquidity Needs to Acquire Equipment to be Leased
 
The acquisition of leasing assets fuels our growth. As a result, we expect to invest substantial funds to acquire containers and gensets, although there can be no assurances as to the timing and amount of such acquisitions.  Going forward, provided there is sufficient demand, production capacity, appropriate pricing and available financing, we intend to invest in new containers at a level that is consistent with our historical investment activity. As of July 20, 2012, SeaCube has ordered approximately $250.0 million of new equipment for delivery through September 2012.  Of this amount, approximately $169.8 million, or 68%, has been committed to long-term leases.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $58.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $46.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, a $12.1 million increase. The increase in operating cash flow was primarily the result of increased profitability.
 
Net cash provided by (used in) investing activities was $(64.1) million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $(264.3) million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, an increase of $200.2 million to cash flow.  The primary driver of the increase is the timing of purchases of leased equipment as well as investment in direct finance leases.  Our restricted cash balances increased by $8.6 million in the six months ended June 30, 2012 versus $4.1 million in the six months ended June 30, 2011. In addition, we had higher collections on net investment in direct finance leases and higher proceeds from the sale of leasing equipment of $8.1 million and $5.2 million, respectively.
 
Net cash provided by (used in) financing activities was $13.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $212.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, a decrease of $199.4 million to cash flow.  During the current period, the proceeds of long-term debt (net of payments) decreased by $198.2 million versus the prior period.  This is primarily attributable to higher proceeds in the prior year period from the Series 2011-1 Notes.  In conjunction with the closing of the Series 2012-1 Notes and the restatement of the revolving credit facility in the current year period, we incurred debt issuance costs of $5.5 million. In conjunction with the closing of the Series 2011-1 Notes and the repayment of the borrowings under CLIF IV in the prior year period, we incurred debt issuance costs of $3.8 million and paid $0.7 million, which represented the fair value of the derivative on the CLIF IV borrowings.  These increases to cash flow were partially offset by higher dividends paid during the six months ended June 30, 2012 of $2.5 million.
 
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
 
We did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements as of June 30, 2012.

Non-GAAP Measures
 
Adjusted Net Income
 
Adjusted net income is a measure of financial and operating performance that is not defined by U.S. GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for net income, income from operations or cash flow from operations, as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  Adjusted net income is a measure of our operating and financial performance used by management to focus on consolidated financial and operating performance exclusive of income and expenses that relate to non-routine or significant non-cash items of the business.
 
We define adjusted net income (loss) as net income before non-cash interest expense related to terminations and modifications of derivative instruments, losses on retirement of debt, fair value adjustments on derivative instruments, loss on swap terminations, and write-offs of goodwill. We use adjusted net income to assess our consolidated financial and operating performance, and we believe this non-GAAP measure is helpful to management and investors in identifying trends in our performance. This measure helps management make decisions which are expected to facilitate meeting current financial goals as well as achieve optimal financial performance. Adjusted net income provides us with a measure of financial performance of the business based on operational factors including the profitability of assets on an economic basis net of operating expenses and the capital costs of the business on a consistent basis as it removes the impact of certain non-routine and non-cash items from our operating results.  Adjusted net income is a key metric used by senior management and our board of directors to review the consolidated financial performance of the business.

Adjusted EBITDA
 
Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“adjusted EBITDA”) is a measure of financial and operating performance that is not defined by U.S. GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for net income, income from operations or cash flow from operations, as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
 
We define adjusted EBITDA as income (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes, interest expenses including loss on retirement of debt, depreciation and amortization, fair value adjustments on derivative instruments, loss on terminations and modification of derivative instruments, gain on sale of assets, and write-offs of goodwill plus principal collections on direct finance lease receivables.  We use adjusted EBITDA in a number of ways to assess our consolidated financial and operating performance, and we believe this measure is helpful to management, the board of directors and investors in identifying trends in our performance. We use adjusted EBITDA as a measure of our consolidated operating performance exclusive of income and expenses that relate to the financing, income taxes, and capitalization of the business. Also, adjusted EBITDA assists us in comparing our operating performance on a consistent basis as it removes the impact of our capital structure (primarily interest charges on our outstanding debt) and asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization) from our operating results. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA helps management identify controllable expenses and make decisions designed to help us meet our current financial goals and optimize our financial performance. Accordingly, we believe this metric measures our financial performance based on operational factors that management can impact in the short-term, namely the cost structure and expenses of the organization. Lastly, adjusted EBITDA is the basis for calculating selected financial ratios as required in the debt covenants of one of our credit facilities and one of our management agreements.

New Accounting Pronouncements
 
Adopted in 2012
 
In June 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-05, Presentation of Comprehensive Income (“ASU 2011-05”), which eliminates the option to present other comprehensive income and its components in the statement of shareholders’ equity.  The Company may either present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements.  The Company adopted ASU 2011-05 on January 1, 2012 and now presents the components of net income and other comprehensive income in two separate but consecutive statements.

Exchange Rate Risk
 
While our leasing per diems are billed and paid to us in U.S. dollars, we are subject to exchange gains and losses for local currency expenditures. We record the effect of non-U.S. dollar currency transactions when we translate the non-U.S. subsidiaries’ financial statements into U.S. dollars using exchange rates as they exist at the end of each month.
 
 
Interest Rate Risk
 
We have long-term debt obligations that accrue interest at variable rates. Interest rate changes may therefore impact the amount of interest payments, future earnings and cash flows. We have entered into interest rate swap agreements to mitigate the impact of changes in interest rates that may result from fluctuations in the variable rates of interest accrued by our long-term debt obligations.  Based on the debt obligation payable as of June 30, 2012, we estimate that cash flows from interest expense relating to variable rate debt and the relevant interest rate swap agreement would increase by $0.02 million on an annual basis in the event interest rates were to increase by 10%.
 
 
Credit Risk
 
We are subject to concentrations of credit risk with respect to amounts due from customers. We seek to limit our credit risk by performing ongoing credit evaluations and, when deemed necessary, require letters of credit, guarantees or collateral. Our credit policy sets different maximum exposure guidelines for each customer. Credit criteria may include, but are not limited to, customer trade route, country, social and political climate, assessments of net worth, asset ownership, bank and trade credit references, credit bureau reports, operational history and financial strength.
 
We seek to reduce credit risk by maintaining insurance coverage against customer insolvency and related equipment losses. We maintain contingent physical damage, recovery and loss of revenue insurance, which provides coverage in the event of a customer’s insolvency, bankruptcy or default giving rise to our demand for return of all of our equipment. Subject to the policy’s deductible and other terms and conditions, it covers the cost of recovering our equipment, damage to the equipment, loss of equipment and, to a limited extent, lost revenues. This coverage automatically renews for one additional one-year term on the anniversary of the commencement date subject to maintaining a certain claim experience rate.
 
Our hedging transactions using derivative instruments have counterparty credit risk. The counterparties to our derivative arrangements and repurchase agreements are major financial institutions with high credit ratings. As a result, we do not anticipate that any of these counterparties will fail to meet their obligations. However, there can be no assurance that we will be able to adequately protect against this risk and will ultimately realize an economic benefit from our hedging strategies or recover the full value of the securities underlying our repurchase agreements in the event of a default by a counterparty.
 
 
Provision for Doubtful Accounts
 
The provision for doubtful accounts includes our estimate of allowances necessary for receivables on both operating and direct financing lease receivables. The provision for doubtful accounts is developed based on two key components (1) specific reserves for receivables which are impaired for which management believes full collection is doubtful and (2) reserves for estimated losses inherent in the receivables based upon historical trends. We believe our provision for doubtful accounts is adequate to provide for credit losses inherent in our accounts receivable. The provision for doubtful accounts requires the application of estimates and judgments as to the outcome of collection efforts and the realization of collateral, among other things. In addition, changes in economic conditions or other events may necessitate additions or deductions to the provision for doubtful accounts. Direct financing leases are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. When evaluating our operating and direct financing lease receivables for impairment, we consider, among other things, the level of past due amounts of the respective receivable, the borrower’s financial condition, credit quality indicators of the borrower, the value of underlying collateral and third party credit enhancements such as guarantees and insurance policies. Once a direct financing lease is determined to be non-performing, our procedures provide for the following events to take place in order to evaluate collectability:
 
 
- 27 -

 
 
 
The past due amounts are reclassified to accounts receivable,
 
 
The equipment value supporting such direct financing lease is reclassified to leasing equipment, and
 
 
Collectability is evaluated, taking into consideration equipment book value and the total outstanding receivable, as well as the likelihood of collection through the recovery of equipment.
 
The adequacy of our provision for doubtful accounts is provided based upon a monthly review of the collectability of our receivables. This review is based on the risk profile of the receivables, credit quality indicators such as the level of past-due amounts and economic conditions, as well as the value of underlying collateral in the case of direct financing lease receivables.
