Extracts FYI from today's Downing Microcap Investment Trust results RNS: "Simon To of Gama has a big job ahead of him. He promises appropriate governance, controls and integrity - attributes that the board has been desperately lacking given the calamitous last 12 months. We lend him support in the challenges that inevitably lie ahead for Gama, as it begins its recovery." "Progress against investment case Post the fundraise last year, the business has hit several stumbling blocks. Capital has not been deployed as expected and the appointment of a strong new FD has uncovered some questionable financial reporting practices. Unfortunately, we underestimated the ability of the board to impose the expected checks and balances on a business of this size and complexity. Despite the disappointing governance, the business does continue to perform respectably well which demonstrates the viability of the model. In December, the company announced that between £93.5 million and £115.5 million of contracts had been awarded to support special missions' operations. We have confidence that with the correct governance in place this is a viable business which can be turned around and generate a healthy return for our investors. We are working hard to ensure that an equitable governance structure is put in place that will represent all minority shareholders."

GMAA has more problems than Boeings ill fated MCAS - the nose is pointed firmly downwards (from a private investor perspective). Good that I woke to the jam tomorrow and bs from the management team a few years ago and bailed out completely.

Hutchison have bought a further 1.16m shares, and are up to 29.79% with 18.95m shares: Https://www.investegate.co.uk/gama-aviation-plc--gmaa-/rns/director-pdmr-shareholding/201905020705018672X/ Now it's up to Hutchison via both the Chairman and FD to ensure that this globally sector leading company fulfils its potential, and that MK is kept under control with no further mishaps.

The FD was a no nonsense guy. He wasn't going to take any of Marwan's bs and I think he has been forced out because of that. I am not sure I would take him leaving as a positive. Especially when Marwan has been cooking the books for years.

I know downing take the long-term view but losing and FD in less than a year, after he found accounting issues, suggests that there could be significant turbulence on route!

I understand the point re the FD, but the handover is amicable, and the new FD has an impressive track record and is obviously a trusted and long-standing colleague of the new Hutchison-appointee Chairman. Given that Hutchison now own nearly a third of GMAA it makes sense, especially as DS seems now to have identified all the main issues arising from the previous regime. I doubt whether Hutchison will bid to take GMAA out - I suspect all this is more to prevent a low-ball bid from someone else. Downing's reaction will be interesting, but given that it has to be good news that Hutchison are so committed to GMAA's future, then I believe they'll be happy to go along for the ride. Besides, they only own 7% from memory compared to Hutchison's almost-28%.

well getting rid of your finance director after less than a year should help loosen a few hands. Particularly after he took them to task for what appear to be prior lax financial controls, auditors seem to have pulled them up on what can be considered one-off costs, and they found overpayments from subsidiaries that appear to have historically flattered the balance sheet at a time they were raising money from the market. My understanding is that the CFO was put in place by Downing as part of their strategic actions to turn the company around. If I were them I would be spitting feathers at this change. Especially as they supported them during recent capital raises, etc. The market price hasn't reacted as Hutchison clearly appear to be still bidding in the market, but when they reach 30% they won't be able to support the price anymore, barring a takeover. If they launch a takeover I doubt it will be generous given their now effective control of the board. So this now appears to have a small upside, large downside to me, and I am happy to have sold out to Hutchison in the market.

I think the CEO's trying hard enough by himself :o)) But Hutchison Whampoa's intent in increasing their holding yo up to 30% of GMAA is certainly encouraging.

Comments from the CEO about Hutchison's share buying..... Https://corporatejetinvestor.com/articles/hutchinson-whampoa-increasing-stake-in-gama-aviation-087/ "Hutchinson Whampoa increasing stake in Gama Aviation By Alasdair Whyte April 26, 2019 15:29 Gama Aviation has agreed to let Hutchison Whampoa China increase its stake in the business aviation company to 30%. Hutchinson, a division of Hong Kong conglomerate CK Hutchison Holdings, took a 24.9% stake in Gama Aviation in 2018. “The main rationale is that Hutchinson think our stock is pretty cheap at the moment, have faith in the business and want to increase their stake,” says Marwan Khalek, CEO and founder of Gama Aviation. Shares in Gama Aviation were trading at £208.50 at the end of April 2018. They were at £69.5 on Tuesday April 23 this year rising to £93.50 on Friday April 26 – possibly boosted by the Hutchinson announcement. “We have made some mistakes – including missing guidance, which is a cardinal sin, and we are paying the price for that – but we are still a profitable, cash generative business with a strong strategy,” says Khalek. Hutchinson become an anchor investor in Gama in February 2018 when Gama raised £48 million ($67 million) in a share issue. The Hong Kong group bought 21% of the company. At the same time Gama used $19.8 million of the issue’s proceeds to acquire Hutchison’s Hong Kong aviation interests: its 50% stake in a joint venture with the business operator — Gama Aviation Hutchison Holdings — and Hutchinson’s 20% stake in maintenance company China Aircraft Services Limited (“CASL”). At the start of April, Gama appointed Simon To as non-executive chairman. To is managing director of Hutchison Whampoa (China) Limited and chairman of Hutchison China Meditech a biopharmaceutical company listed on the AIM and Nasdaq with a market capitalisation of around £3 billion. He, was already a non-executive director of Gama, has also served on the boards of China Southern and Air China. He has been vice chairman of maintenance company GAMECO since 1989 and is chairman of China Aircraft Services Limited, in which Gama Aviation has a 20% shareholding."

Hutchison have increased further, buying another 1.02m shares: Https://www.investegate.co.uk/gama-aviation-plc/rns/director-pdmr-shareholding/201904261132542641X/ They now need to buy another 2.8m shares or so to get to just under 30%. NB: the second RNS today is simply a holding RNS reflecting yesterday's PMDR RNS.

I was right - last night's RNS saw Hutchison buy another 1.7m shares to move to 23.85%. I calculate Hutchison need to buy another 3.8m shares or so to get to just under 30%: Https://www.investegate.co.uk/gama-aviation-plc--gmaa-/rns/director-pdmr-transactions/201904251808101652X/

would make sense given the recent request by Hutchinson to remove the 25% restriction.
