Covering half the world, one satalite. hTtps://spaceflight101.com/events/ariane-5-va242/ Europe’s Ariane 5 rocket will launch the Hylas 4 and Intelsat 38 telecommunications satellites into Geostationary Transfer Orbit for operators Avanti Communications and Intelsat. Hylas 4, built by Orbital ATK, is high-throughput broadband communications satellites delivering 28 GHz of capacity via 66 fixed Ka-Band beams positioned over Africa and Europe with four steerable beams that can service additional markets in Africa and Latin America. The SS/L-built Intelsat 38 satellite will operate from 45° East to deliver Direct-to-Home television distribution and corporate networking services to Central and Eastern Europe, Asia and Africa.

You like others know the potential. You have to remember, several years ago, the market was a different place technologically, also financial crisis was in full swing. The markets all about growth and recovery now. Mining and resource sector (african based) all flourishing. And Oil and gas obviously recovering. All these things enabling the right environment to secure the basis for recovery here, timing with H4 launch. Hylas4 has a minimum 19year life span. It also covers more locations, and has greater speed /bandwidth. And forms part of a global network. H4 is way ahead of the pack. The share price is being manipulated, its clear to see ... for the these reasons

That was certainly my rationale for investing years ago (I'm long gone now) but the sales just didn't live up to the expectations and borrowing ballooned to a point where the debt is almost unserviceable. Even if sales do grow exponentially from here, how long to get to cash breakeven, then profitability and what life will be left in the sats (20-yr lifespan and H1 has been up there 7 years already)?

Everything now depends on data. All the international tech brands need to grow their base. And they have to land grab bandwidth as fast as they can.

Good analysis, but in fact you're potentially being too generous. EBITDA for 6 months ending Dec 2016 was - $6m (vs -$3m from the same period the previous year)- largely due to a huge deterioration in the cost of sales. So, they have a challenge to even generate any positive cash flow, let alone grow sales.

kMann, "You need to look harder at the VODAFONE connections. Next phase of growth." I'm sure that long suffering shareholders would love to see that. But perhaps you don't understand quite how much growth is needed just for the company to stop hemorrhaging losses? Turnover for the year ended 30 June 2016 was $74.5m: Https://www.investegate.co.uk/avanti-comms-group--avn-/rns/final-results/201612200928293479S/ That fed through to an EBITDA of $7.3m, so EBITDA margin is a tad under 10%. Let's take EBITDA as a rough indication of cash flow as the depreciation is a non-cash item (contributing to the total loss for the year of $69.2m). Let us also ignore that the interest expense is increasing because of compounding. The interest expense for last year was $40.9m. In order to meet the interest expense on an ongoing basis then the EBITDA needs to *grow* to $40.9 and so, working back from an EBITDA margin of 105, revenue needs to grow to something like $409m. So in order for Avanti to become cash flow break even (never mind being able to actually repay its debts) then revenue needs to grow by 450%. That seems very unlikely and that's one of the many reasons why the share price has fallen yet again today and most people expect a massive debt for equity swap ... at best. JakNife

kMann - you need to actually answer the questions posed by Jak around the debt burden. H4 revenues are unlikely to come quick enough to avoid another large D4E which will dilute current holders again. the point is that even if the long-term opportunity is huge, it is very likely that Avanti in its current form will be around to enjoy it. the assets will survive, but will have been sold on by the debt holders to recoup some of their principal. In this event, shareholders get nothing. Your 'grand statements' are not actually addressing the real problem that Avanti has.

Except that Avanti isn't "going through the roof", it's at an all time low. That's because everyone (apart from you kMann) knows that Avanti's debt mountain is so enormous that it needs a massive debt for equity swap ... which should be expected to leave shareholders with materially less than they currently have *IF* anything at all.

Anything in the cryptolockchain data sphere going through the roof. Mobile data part of that arena. Buyers today know this, buying before the ripple effect.

Your research has been too simple kMann. Avanti is crushed under a mountain of debt that it doesn't have a hope of ever paying back. It doesn't even generate enough cash to pay the interest and hence the interest compounds and the debt just gets bigger. Avanti's debt has been downgraded to "default" and some of it trades as low as 26 cents in the dollar: Http://finra-markets.morningstar.com/BondCenter/BondDetail.jsp?ticker=FAVNL4533418&symbol=AVNL4533418 Common sense should tell you that if the bondholders aren't going to get all of their money back then they're not likely to let shareholders have anything.

Simple research, supply and demand. This is virtualy an off the shelf purchase now for a telecoms company with such near term commisioning. This is a "want it now" world. The capicity and bandwidth available here is world class.

As far as Hylas4 is concerned, operational life has been extended, so longterm is not only profitable but will be operational next year, enableing fast mover advantage as african expansion continues.

Put another way, buy a company for £700 with a potential revenue of $250/year and control of an emerging market. New frontiers, all these telecoms and tv companies need them, avanti a cheap way in, fully developed now, ready to launch.

£10million market cap now for a satellite company in the middle of a tech boom. This is prime takeover material imo.

Well it looks like the marketing push has begun. Data bandwidth is for ever growing. Should be an easy sell. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBCna4cjzzM http://www.avantiplc.com/event/africacom2017/
