boneshaker2: Apart from my personal holding I'm in the BBA share save scheme via one of the BBA group of company's. Could someone enlighten me as to what effect this rights issue/dilution will have on the current share price and the sceme?
jeffian: Well somebody likes buybacks! This from Citywire - "Bill Gates has ramped up his holding in flight services company BBA Aviation (BBA) as the business continues an aggressive schedule of share buybacks. Gates upped his holdings in the company from 40.2 million shares to 46.1 million or 9.8% worth £147.6 million at a share price of 318p, up 44% over the last three years. Shares are currently trading at 311.9p. The holding is split between Gates' charitable Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Cascade Investments, the business he established to manage his fortune, estimated at around $61 billion. Day to day management of the company is handled by renowned value investor Michael Larson. BBA has been widely tipped by managers such as Citywire AAA-rated Nigel Thomas of AXA Framlington. Societe Generale initiated coverage of BBA at the end of June with a 360p price target and a buy rating. Jeffries has a target of 375p, also rated buy. The company has since April purchased around £25 million of its own stock as part of a planned £80 million buyback programme." hTTp://
jeffian: It's almost standard now for companies to have the authority to buy back their own shares, subject to a limit (usually 10/15%) and there are times when this clearly makes sense (e.g. when the share price goes below the NAV/share) but, as the Enterprise Inns' example shows, many of them exercise it when their shares are trading at a premium, not when they are distressed! As with most resolutions at AGM's these tend to get voted through on the nod (I voted against the ETI one - I think I was outvoted by about 550m shares!). Institutions tend to like them because they believe the line that massaging the EPS upwards will be reflected in a growing share price but as there is no direct connection between the money spent and the resultant share price - it requires the market to achieve that and, as we all know, markets are imperfect - I would rather have the cash and know where I am. One day, when I have time, I must do some analysis across a range of companies who have been prolific buy-backers and see how their shares have performed vs. money spent.
jeffian: Theoretically, but personally I hate buybacks. The argument is that, by buying back shares and reducing the number in issue (the treasury shares will eventually be cancelled), earnings per share and NAV are correspondingly increased and that this will then be reflected in a higher share price. It's sometimes referred to as a way of 'returning capital to shareholders', but of course it's nothing of the kind - all the capital gets given to those who sell and those remaining have to hope theirs will go up correspondingly! Unfortunately, managers cannot dictate the value of their own shares and the market has a way making up its own mind. (In)famously, Enterprise Inns spent nearly £1bn(!) buying back its own shares at up to nearly £8/share before the 2007/8 crash when they went down to....26p. Personally, I feel very strongly that if a company has 'surplus cash' it wishes to return to shareholders, it should do it via dividends or a capital distribution to all shareholders and they can decide what to do with their own money. Cynics might say that, as most management 'incentive plans' are based on increases in earnings or NAV, executives may be influenced by self-interest in favouring schemes which artificially boost those, but I couldn't possibly comment on that.
peterev4: Can anyone explain the recent drops in this share price. Have been trying to find out but to no avail.
jeffian: jet-21, You can elect to take your divis in the form of shares rather than cash. The "scrip dividend calculation price" is the share price used to calculate the number of shares you receive - "the calculation price for the new fully paid ordinary shares to be issued to shareholders who elect to receive the scrip dividend alternative for the 2009 interim dividend is 155.14 pence per share" - thus in this case you will receive (your divi divided by 155.14p)=X new shares.
jet_21: Any predictions for the share price over the rest of 2009 then please?
gswredland: Good results. It is good to see the share price responding well to the results as well.
thamestrader: Sold Oxford airport but, likewise, no share price reaction. LONDON (Thomson Financial) - BBA Aviation PLC said it has completed the sale of Oxford Aviation Services Ltd to OA Acquisitions for a debt-free, cash-free consideration of 40 mln stg. Oxford Airport has been owned and operated by BBA since March 2000. In the year ended 31 December 2006, the airport had a turnover of 4.5 mln stg and an operating profit of 0.3 mln. The sale will net BBA around 24 mln stg, which is expected to be tax-free. BBA said the disposal represented a good deal for the company. "The sale of Oxford Airport has been completed at an attractive price to BBA Aviation and the disposal will be immediately earnings enhancing," said Simon Pryce, BBA's chief executive in a statement.
networker: After a considerable time in the doldrums BBA share price looks set to make significant progress as news of its future plans and current trading situation become more widely known. I'd now expect to see some broker upgrades and recommendations.
