rivaldo: Looks fairly unexciting - particularly for those who can afford to use private jets :o)) On the other hand, in researching the Budget I just came across this from the last few days which may equally well give GMAA's operations in the USA a very nice boost indeed. I wonder if this has partly caused the recent share price rise? Https:// "Democrats blast GOP plan’s tax break on private jets By David Sherfinski - The Washington Times - Sunday, November 19, 2017 Republicans billed their tax overhaul as a way to clear out special loopholes from the bloated tax code — but the bill that will hit the Senate floor after Thanksgiving actually adds a host of new breaks on everything from private jet operators to citrus farmers. The jet plan, which would exempt private airplane maintenance payments from a transportation excise tax, has quickly become emblematic of the GOP’s bill in online forums, with opponents saying it shows the plan is skewed toward the wealthy who can afford to use such planes. The aviation industry says that’s a misunderstanding, and said the provision is intended to make sure private plane managers don’t pay a 7.5 percent “ticket tax” applied to commercial flights. “Tax reform legislation has a long way to go, but this is an important step and small aviation businesses are appreciative of the inclusion of this provision, which provides them the tax certainty they have long sought,” said Martin H. Hiller, president of the National Air Transportation Association."
andrewbaker: It's a small cap in a difficult to evaluate market, so the share price will be volatile. For what it's worth, I'm long, and holding on; and back into a decent profit after today's share price rise.
corrientes: How come other recent newspaper tips have had little or no impact on the share price ? Seems a bit odd to me,but sentiment can change very quickly, and this time for the better. I'm not complaining though. I'd been worried about litigation holding back the share price,but as someone said on this thread, you'd have thought that the other party would have brought their counterclaim before not after GMAA's claim.
corrientes: The market is never impressed when a CFO leaves without any real explanation,and this is what the share price is saying.At least he's not leaving immediately, which is a plus. This plethora of good news and yet no sign of the share price moving up, for nearly a year now. Maybe next year's court case has something to do with this haitus, but the whole thing is really puzzling, putting it politely.
rivaldo: Cheers paleje. Just to put the Times mention in context it's in regard to a Buy tip for the relatively new Downing Strategic Micro-Cap fund, which has made GMAA one of its largest initial investments on the basis of the positives mentioned. GMAA is 6.2% of the fund at present: Https:// The share price has doubled in less than a year. I suspect this is simply a consolidation phase. One more decent RNS may be enough to trigger a large further rise given the cheap fundamentals assuming no material sellers out there, or perhaps it'll simply be the next trading statement.
corrientes: Whilst this talk of good cash generation is mentioned in several places, normally the trigger for a share price rerate,its not happening here, and some say that if you delve into the figures,the free cash flow isn't really that great. Now who is right ? That, plus the recent legal issue seem to be the sticking points here. Maybe what it will take to get the share price moving, is for the next RNS to show a healthy unadulterated positive cash flow. Then again it could just be AIM, where you have to be flavour of the month to get any attention.
rivaldo: WH Ireland have issued a new note post the Capital Markets Day. They reiterate their Buy and 370p target price. They forecast 32.9c EPS this year, rising to 36c and 41.2c. That's around 24.3p EPS this year rising to 26.7p and 30.5p EPS. They comment as follows: "Capital Markets Day illustrates the platform built to support growth Gama Aviation is a global business aviation services provider. The Group yesterday held a Capital Markets Day at its Farnborough HQ, including its Air and Ground operation centres. The event provided the opportunity both to revisit the operations at first hand and to meet the wider global senior management teams. Key takeaways were: 1) the robust and scalable operational platform that has been built against what remains a highly fragmented market, 2) strength of the wider management team, 3) the growth opportunities in each of key geographies, including in special missions and through cross-selling, 4) the focus across the business on client delivery and 5) reinforcement of the regulatory environment in which the Group operates. Whilst the shares have performed well since the beginning of the year, we believe that the business is illustrating increasingly positive momentum, including improved cash generation as illustrated in recent interim results. We continue to see the valuation multiples ascribed as undemanding and we reiterate our Buy stance and 370p share price target. Gama’s HQ and core centre of operations in the UK is located at Farnborough Airport. In the Air division, this hosts the Group’s operations centre, international flight planning, charter operations, airworthiness and regulatory functions. Ground operations at the site include the Beechcraft authorised service facility, base maintenance and line maintenance capabilities. We believe that each geography has interesting areas from which to deliver growth: Europe - adding scale to the existing platform and expansion from what remains a predominantly UK centric business into mainland Europe, US – adding further scale from the established platform, leveraging the Signature network following the recent BBA merger and building on the single existing special missions’ contract in place, Asia – build scale from leveraging Hutchison Whampoa and CASL agreements and through acquisition and Middle East – build scale both through organic and acquisitive means, including taking advantage of regulatory changes in Saudi Arabia. Overall, we came away with the view that Gama has built a strong platform from which to grow in this highly fragmented market. Our forecasts imply that the shares trade on a FY 2017E PER of just 9.5x falling to 8.7x, which suggests a significant 40%+ discount to our basket of peers. As such, we reiterate our Buy recommendation and 370p share price target."
rivaldo: GMAA had an excellent H1'17, as evidenced by the rise in the share price since they were published. This despite the claims which were first made between Nov'16 and Feb'17. It seems that GMAA were able to operate extremely well without this being any kind of distraction. Given the bullish outlook, I suspect this will continue to be the case, especially judging by the tone of today's RNS.
rivaldo: New Buy tip for GMAA on Motley Fool: Http:// "Unilever plc isn’t the only growth giant that could fund your retirement Royston Wild | Wednesday, 6th September, 2017 I have long sung the praises of household goods leviathan Unilever (LSE: ULVR), its rich history of generating strong earnings growth, whatever the weather, making it one of the ultimate ‘peace of mind’ shares out there. But the Marmite maker and Persil producer isn’t the only stock that could deliver stonking returns long into the future. Indeed, Gama Aviation (LSE: GMAA) is another share I reckon you might be able to retire on. Plane brilliance The business aviation service provider has been a stellar performer in the year to date, its share price gaining 82% since the beginning of 2017 and soaring to 16-month highs above 250p just today, following the release of half-year numbers. The Farnborough-based company advised that revenues detonated 45% between January and June, to $291m, a result that powered underlying pre-tax profit 40% higher to $7m. Chief executive Marwan Khalek said: “The first half of 2017 has seen the group maintain the positive momentum generated through last year to deliver a good performance in line with our expectations… in all divisions and all regions we achieved strong revenue growth and encouraging improved margin performance.” The company saw US Air revenue rise 74% in the six-month period, and it advised that “the integration of the BBA aircraft management business into the US Air division is progressing well and benefitting from a buoyant US market.” Gama merged its aircraft management and charter business in the US with that of BBA Aviation back in January to create the country’s biggest aircraft management firm, a move that created significant cost benefits and expanded its global footprint. And at US Ground, Gama saw revenues shoot 19% higher in January-June thanks to the impact of new base openings last year and fresh contract wins. A strong North American marketplace was not the only cause to celebrate, however, with Gama noting that at Europe Air, “operational efficiency initiatives completed in 2016 have produced strong improvements in gross profit and EBITDA margins.” The flying ace also reported “modest revenue growth and improved profitability” at its Europe Ground. And elsewhere, Gama advised that Middle East Air and Ground had showed “encouraging growth” in the first half. Those seeking an immediate earnings explosion may well be disappointed — Gama is predicted to endure a 31% earnings drop in 2017. However, I remain convinced that next year’s predicted 9% bottom-line rebound should start a run of chunky profits advances. Despite hitting fresh share price summits on Wednesday, Gama boasts a forward P/E ratio of 10.2 times. And I reckon this is unmissable value given the company’s improving position in a growing market, helped by the impact of recent M&A activity."
rivaldo: Cheers fizzypop (and x54v) - here's a direct link. The P/E of 7.1 is ridiculous. Good to see WH Ireland reiterate their 370p target: Https:// "Shares in air services group Gama are looking cheap 06 September 2017, 13:09 Business jet services company Gama Aviation (GMAA:AIM) enjoys a 3% share price hike to 255p as its reveals a revenue increase of 45% to $291m in the six months to 30 June. A large part of this improvement is thanks to a revenue increase of around 74% in its US air services arm, reflecting the company’s game-changing management merger with part of BBA Aviation and the growth of the Wheels Up contract. The latter’s contract is a membership-based US private plane service which greatly reduces the cost of being able to fly in a private jet. CHEAP VALUATION Gama is trading on 7.1 times 2018’s forecast 36p earnings per share based on broker WH Ireland’s estimates. WH Ireland analyst John Cummings describes this valuation as undemanding and gives the company a buy recommendation with a 370p target price. STRATEGIC MOVES Gama chief executive Marwan Khalek says that as much as he values the Wheels Up contract ‘it was becoming a big part of the business’ and the deal with BBA helps ‘recalibrate’ the company’s offering. He adds that the deal helps to reduce concentration risk in the business as the deal with BBA not only offers coast to coast coverage of the lucrative US market, it may lead to cross-selling opportunities with BBA. Khalek admits not much of this has come through yet, although he expects cost savings to follow in due course. GENERATING CASH Another positive part of Gama’s results is the $5.1m reduction in net debt to $14.3m. Some of this, $4.2m, was due to the disposal of legacy aircraft but the business is also becoming more cash generative. The company’s pre-tax profit stood 40% higher at $7m. Underlying earnings per share is up 25% to just over $0.12."
