Here ex Simon Thompson of IC: “The directors of aircraft leasing company Avation (AVAP:256p) have delivered yet more good news to shareholders at its annual meeting as I had anticipated they would a couple of months ago ('Poised for take-off', 8 Oct 2018). The board is guiding investors to expect a 39 per cent increase in aircraft lease rental values in the six months to the end of December 2018, an outcome that will deliver a record half-year profit and a run rate in line with Canaccord Genuity’s full-year revenue forecast of $119m (£93m). The update is supportive of expectations that Avation can lift full-year underlying pre-tax profit from $18.9m to $23.8m and deliver EPS of 35¢ (27.5p) for the 12 months to the the end of June 2019. The board has declared a first half-year dividend a share of 2¢, underpinning analysts’ full-year expectations of an 8¢ (6.2p) payout. The directors have also revealed the extent to which the fleet is undervalued. The conditional disposal of one of Avation’s eight Airbus A321-200 aircraft to an Asian buyer has been agreed at a price that will exceed its book value of $48.7m (£37.5m) by “more than 10 per cent”, a significant sum in relation to the profits expected from the company’s leasing activities. They also flagged up that narrow-body aircraft now comprise “half of the $1bn fleet value”, the clear implication being that Avation’s last reported net asset value (NAV) of $231m (£180m), or 280p a share at current exchange rates, is far too conservative. Please note that I have adjusted the last reported NAV to take into account the exercise of share options post the June 2018 financial year-end. Furthermore, after accounting for the delivery of two ATR72-600 aircraft by the end of this month, the company still retains options and purchase rights over 25 of these aircraft for delivery up to December 2023, all of which are held in the account at nil cost. To put the value of these aircraft options into perspective, Canaccord has a target price of 335p, representing a 20 per cent premium to Avation’s last reported NAV, which is "justified by the company’s attractive growth prospects and [the premium] largely underwritten by the value of its ATR options". In other words, the 25 ATR-72 aircraft options could easily be worth $45m (£35m) on the open market, a significant sum in relation to Avation’s market capitalisation of £164m. Add to that a potential $50m (£39m) plus undervaluation of the narrow-bodied fleet and there is potentially $95m of hidden value not embedded in Avation’s reported NAV of $231m. Furthermore, my financial models suggest that Avation could boost its reported NAV to $257m, or 399¢ (312p) a share, by June 2019 after taking into account only the realised $5m-plus profit on the aforementioned Airbus A321-200 aircraft sale and retained profits in the 12-month trading period. However, mark Avation’s fleet of 41 aircraft to their open market value, and factor in a realistic valuation of the 25 ATR-72 options, which have increasing scarcity value – ATR only manufactures 85 planes a year and demand from China, India and Iran is tightening the market – and the company’s break-up value is realistically far closer to 400p a share. Trading on a forward PE ratio of nine, offering a 2.4 per cent prospective dividend yield, and with substantial hidden value in the accounts, I continue to see value in Avation's shares, which have posted a total return of 72 per cent since I first advised buying at 159p ('Get on board for blue-sky gains', 11 Sep 2014). Strong buy.”

RECORD HALF YEAR:- "The Company's business continues to perform satisfactorily and Avation is expected to report a record half-year profit for the six months ended 31 December 2018 that significantly exceeds the result for the comparable half-year period ended 31 December 2017. This is attributable to increased lease revenue from our fleet and a trading gain on the sale of a narrow-body aircraft." SIGNIFICANTLY EXCEEDS prior comparable quarter. They have BIG HIDDEN VALUE in their balance-sheet as several aircraft have a lower book value than they are currently worth on the open market. Lease rental income UP by an astonishing 39% Strong Trading Update. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

So sounds like business is doing well we make a one off 5m usd on this sale and there is another 35+ in unrealized gains waiting to be realized which is about 20pct of market cap, of these numbers we should be up a 300 in no time

No worries. That sounds a positive position for us and certainly underpins current price I would think.

AVAP rns today starts with "The purpose of this statement is to provide investors with an update on current operations and concerns the half-year financial period commencing 1 July 2018." It then goes on to be positive with no 'concerns' - what have I missed?

gp, OTOH Avatin has twice the dividend growth ;-) Here is a year+ old document detailing numerous aircraft leasing companies: hxxps://www.aviaam.com/upload/Leasing-Top-50-2017.pdf For a quick comparison search/find "Avation" to see how they compared to the competition within the various charts. The lack of comparative investor related research and other aircraft leasing companies listed on the LSE may prevent investors realising just how small Avation is in the industry; Something that has both its pros and cons. The 'take-away for me is that Avation are obtaining average to good returns without having to take enormous financial risks. However cost of debt is high for Aircastle, Avation, FLY and AWAS. I can readily understand why that is so for Avation given its size but perhaps that unsecured debt burden for Aircastle is worthy of more research if anyone was to consider investing in them. Overall each company has to be taken on its merits, fleet size, maturity, credit rating, markets, backers (e.g. China!) etc. With few exceptions those listed on various stock exchanges are all worthy of consideration... provided they remember what happened to Guinness Peat Aviation...

Well, one of the reasons is that Aircastle have the largest dividend yield in the industry - 5.49% at the moment

If, on the other hand you value NTAV growth then Avation beats Aircastle (and practically all other aircraft leasing companies) on that metric. Accordingly the argument would be Avation should be trading well above book value. This difference in market cap is: Avation $215m v AirCastle $1594m

Close to book, you can buy Aircastle for example at a much deeper discount

I meant in decent size...if you are an institutional buyer looking to build a position you will have to drive the price up until you find a seller, and clearly there aren't any at 260p (yet) hence the recent run up 20 pence

Poised for take-off https://www.investorschronicle.co.uk/comment/2018/10/08/poised-for-take-off/ Avation has just agreed the conditional sale of one of its eight Airbus A321-200 aircraft to an Asian buyer at its current market value, representing a significant premium to the carrying value of the asset. We will have to wait for the deal to go through for the finer details to emerge, but on the basis that Avation’s A321-200 is just 23-months old and has a book value of $48.7m (£37.5m), and current market rates are around $53m, then it’s fair to say that the profit on the sale will be significant in relation to the pre-tax profit of $18.9m the company reported from its leasing activities in the 2017-18 financial year. It will also boost Avation’s last reported net asset value (NAV) of $228m, or 280p a share at current exchange rates.
