After having two deals shelved due to the events of Sept. 11, Textron Financial successfully returned to the ABS primary market with an aircraft loan and lease deal last week. The company will also go ahead with previous plans for the sale of a franchise deal sometime in the near future, according to David Wisen, head of securitization for Textron.
