Item 8.01 Other Events.
On June 6, 2017, Red Mountain Partners, L.P. (the “Selling Stockholder”) completed its sale of 4,377,330 shares of common stock, $0.01 par value per share (the “Common Stock”), of Air Transport Services Group, Inc. (“ATSG” or the “Company”) to Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated (the “Underwriter”) at a price of $22.42 per share pursuant to the underwriting agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) among the Selling Stockholder, the Company and the Underwriter.
 Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, the Company purchased 380,637 shares of Common Stock from the Underwriter at a price per share equal to the price being paid by the Underwriter to the Selling Stockholder, resulting in an aggregate purchase price of $8,533,881 (the “Share Repurchase”). The Share Repurchase was made as a part of the stock repurchase program authorized by the Company’s board of directors in August 2014, as amended by the board in May 2016. The Company funded the Share Repurchase with cash on hand and/or borrowings under its revolving credit line.
The sale of the Common Stock by the Selling Stockholder was made pursuant to the Company's effective shelf registration statement that was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 31, 2017 (Registration No. 333-218367). The offering was made only by means of the prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus. This Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy, any security. No offer, solicitation, or sale will be made in any jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
