Strange price action. I have just done 2 dummy trades - 184p to buy and 185p to sell. Double checked and prices confirmed.

Take a close look at the operating cash flow and the exceptional items (that are seemingly recurring and not exceptional) plus the use of the discontinued business tactic and that tells the story. Cash flow doesn't support the profit. Note the CEO's travel expenses as exceptional??

Headline figures are OK, but I'm trying to get my head around the cashflow. Needs a full statement IMO. I'm trying to put an interpretation on this. Cash at close = $21.1M. Cash raised £48.0M. WHY QUOTE IN TWO CURRENCIES??? AHEM....! Cash raised = $67.2M then! The balance on the above is $46.1M (67.2 - 21.1) Cash at 010118 open = ($13M) Improvement in balances = $34.1M (21.1+13) So does that mean a cash burn of $12M? (34.1-21.1) Or does that mean a cash burn of $33.1M (67.2-34.1) EBITDA is just $8.1M. Turnover is vanity, profit is sanity, cashflow is reality. Share price is boring, boring, boring! I hold a few.

Results are as expected per the trading update, i.e flat for H1. The reassuring news is that the outlook statement confirms results for the year should be in line with expectations, i.e 26.4c EPS. The USA still looks terrific. Europe seems to be starting to recover now. There's investment and growth planned for huge areas around the rest of the world in Asia with Hutchison Whampoa's support, the Middle East etc. Happy to hold for the considerable potential upside and the (hopefully!) minimal downside given the currently cheap rating.

The low P/E should give a buffer.

Cheers igoe104 - here's a direct link: Https://www.piworld.co.uk/2018/09/10/downing-strategic-micro-cap-investment-trust-agm-meet-the-managers-event-june-2018/ The Downing guy summarises that GMAA should be trading on a P/E of 14-15 rather than the current 8 or so given its lack of cyclicality.

Two more new contracts: Https://www.gamaaviation.com/news/maintenance-news/gama-aviation-strikes-maintenance-support-deal-fontainebleau-aviations-opa-locka-fbo/ "5th Sep 2018 Gama Aviation strikes maintenance support deal with Fontainebleau Aviation’s Opa Locka FBO.

Opa Locka, when combined with Gama Aviation’s existing facility at Palm Beach International, mobile units at St Petersberg and St Augustine, provides Floridian aircraft owners and transient winter clients a compelling, cross state, maintenance support offer. Dennis Richey, President, US Ground commented: “These are exciting times in our development as we build a network that offers our clients a local touch in high volume locations. Opa Locka is an important addition in Florida with its strong heritage in supporting Citation, Bombardier, Gulfstream and Dassault products. By combining a passionate, highly experienced local team with resources from our base at Palm Beach International, we’ll be able to offer our own clients, those of the FBO and other transient / resident aircraft, a wider range of AOG, line and base maintenance support from this world-class facility.” Bobby Courtney, VP of Aviation, Fontainebleau Aviation commented: “Our FBO was built on the philosophy of offering our guests a world-class service across all aspects of their experience with us. To deliver, we wanted a maintenance partner with a similar passion, which led us directly to Gama Aviation. With them, not only do we meet our goal at the FBO, we also extend our service beyond, providing our clients with maintenance support continuity across the US and internationally. For them and us, this is a win-win situation.” And: "5th Sep 2018 Gama Aviation adds Cessna Citation XLS+ to its European fleet Jersey, Channel Islands, 5th Septembert 2018 – Gama Aviation, the global business aviation services company, is pleased to announce it has won an aircraft management contract for a brand-new Jersey based Cessna Citation XLS aircraft.

The new Citation XLS+, comes after a series of recent wins for Gama Aviation with the Group having added a Bombardier Global 5000, a Gulfstream G650ER and two light jets to its global fleet over the last two months. Gascoigne continues: “The addition of the Citation XLS+ demonstrates our passion for service excellence, our ability to support our clients’ mission and our unrelenting commitment to ensuring that we turn the complexity of aviation into a simple, enjoyable experience for our clients.”

Boring share price. Sold half a while ago, at a 33% profit. Needs to come up with something solid on Sept. 24th. Thanks for the updates, Rivaldo. At least they confirm things are happening.

Share action over last few months suggests that results will be neutral to mediocre with a further minor decline in the share price If there was any confidence here, I'd expect to see the price going gently in a northerly direction. What do others think, for clearly previous optimism by various parties seems dead and buried ?

sharemongering>> I have been in and out of this since Hanger8 days and I have been amazingly lucky with my timing having sold 250 twice and bought 110 in between.Pity I have not performed as well elsewhere. I am a fan of GMAA but am holding off buying as I think it could fall further esp if results don't impress and I see a debt based market crash anytime soon. However I would buy sub 150 whatever.

Their financial half year update is being released 24th Sept. Not new news but there's a few red flags in their statement and I'm keen to know if there's been any improvement in performance. It looks like a solid business but I'd like to see some positive news before taking further action. What's anyones view - good or bad?

I concur, bsharman3. I tried a £340 quid dummy buy, and the mms were only willing to take it to the market at a premium. but you can sell a large amount. Are they deliberately keeping the price low, so a buyer and accumulate at this level. ???

More news: Https://www.gamaaviation.com/news/us-news/gama-aviation-enhances-us-biz-jet-maintenance-capability-new-bases/ "Gama Aviation enhances US biz jet maintenance capability with new bases 6th Aug 2018 Gama Aviation extends its US biz jet maintenance capability with new line, base and heavy locations. West Palm Beach, 6th August 2018 – Gama Aviation, the global business aviation services company, is pleased to announce the extension of its US coast-to-coast line maintenance network and the addition of further base & heavy maintenance locations. Additional line maintenance stations increase proximity to a growing client base. Chicago (KMDW) and Miami Opa Locka (KOPF) have been added to an already comprehensive pan-US line station capability. In addition, further mobile units have come on stream at St Augustine (KSGJ) and St Petersburg (KPIE), Florida managed from Gama Aviation’s Palm Beach International base (KPBI). The company’s comprehensive line maintenance network has attracted a strong client base over the last four years. With existing client demand for additional services increasing, the company will be providing: Additional base maintenance capability positioned for quick maintenance turnarounds The capabilities at the current line maintenance stations at Teterboro, White Plains, Palm Beach International, Dallas Love Field and Van Nuys, will be enhanced to perform limited phase checks, providing operators quick turnaround times from high volume locations. A new East & West coast heavy maintenance offer With client and market demand driving the need for additional capability, Gama Aviation’s existing facility at Las Vegas will be enhanced to provide full heavy maintenance to serve the West coast market. A similar capability will be opened in South Florida to serve the East coast. Dennis Richey, President, US Ground commented: “These additions, part of a $10 million package of investment secured in Q1 this year, are adding further capability into our fast-growing maintenance business. This growth offers our clients the scale, breadth and depth they need to efficiently & effectively enhance aircraft availability. Our focus on this crucial part of our clients’ mission, translates directly into improved aircraft performance, operational dollar savings and an enhanced passenger experience.”

Https://www.ainonline.com/aviation-news/business-aviation/2018-08-07/gama-aviation-preps-uk-mx-facility-hits-us-milestone "Gama Aviation Preps UK Mx Facility, Hits U.S. Milestone by Curt Epstein August 7, 2018, 4:47 PM Gama Aviation has received EASA maintenance approval for its new Bournemouth, UK facility, as it consolidates from its existing Farnborough and Oxford locations. The facility is now approved for work on Beechcraft King Airs and Premiers; Bombardier Challenger 600 family, Challenger 850s, and Globals; Hawkers; Cessna Citation 560/Excel/XL/XLSs; and Embraer Legacy 600/650s. “With the EASA approval now in place, we shall seek to add FAA, Cayman, Bermudan, Guernsey, and the Isle of Man to the site’s approval list,” said Scott McVicar, Gama’s managing director for Europe ground services. “With the transition approval coming slightly earlier than expected, the good retention of our current team, and significant interest from local engineers and support staff, I believe we are ahead of plan and can now start to book business into our new home.” The UK-based company also noted that its U.S. maintenance business has completed its 50,000th work order last week, a minor line maintenance item on a Challenger 350, performed at its West Palm Beach, Florida service facility. The aircraft was released back into service on schedule. “I am delighted that we have reached this milestone,” said Dennis Richey, president of Gama’s U.S. ground business. “Our ability to provide a local touch at key destinations across the U.S., combined with the passion displayed by my team to support our clients' missions, translates directly to the financial performance of the operator through a decrease in aircraft downtime.” The announcement comes as Gama has committed to a further $10 million investment into its coast-to-coast service U.S. network, which will add more line, base, and heavy maintenance capabilities during the second half of the year."

Downing Strategic Micro-Cap Investment Trust have issued their investor newsletter covering July, and there's this on GMAA for the record: Https://www.downingstrategic.co.uk/ "Gama Aviation Numerous pieces of newsflow in the period included the hiring of a new CFO who will start in September; moving maintenance operations to Bournemouth which will double engineering capacity and pay for itself through capital contributions and a rent-free period; extension of the Scottish Air Ambulance (SAS) contract; and AGM statement; and, post period end, a trading statement in July. The SAS contract extension provides further visibility on future earnings. The contract is expected to be worth £50 million from June 2020 through to June 2023. The margins on these special missions’ contracts are lucrative, reflecting Gama’s lifetime investment in the relationship. In June, we visited the formal opening of Gama’s new Aberdeen SAS facility which cornerstones Gama’s commitment to service this contract for years to come (they have successfully retendered this contract since 1991). It was great to meet the head of NHS Grampian and the head of the SAS and understand more about the strength of Gama’s service. Significantly, we believe that there are other international opportunities to be won in special missions with the Middle East being a key region and the Sharjah investment providing the backbone for this opportunity. The AGM update received a mixed response from the market. We think that the statement was cautious in tone, reflecting the first four months’ trading on a business which is typically 40/ 60 1h/ 2h weighted. It referenced “high quality contract wins for base maintenance and design” now coming through in the second half rather than the first. Subsequently, the July trading update confirmed that expectations were in line for the full year."

Here's a reminder of what GMAA said less than 2 weeks ago: "Trading Outlook With strong growth in the US, steady and encouraging progress in scaling up our Middle East and Asia operations and stable trading in the EU market, supplemented by new business wins in the EU Ground division, the Group's expectations for the full year remain unchanged." Perhaps corrientes is referring to BBA, who are actually a partner of GMAA rather than a competitor.... Incidentally, BBA's share price is down today due to their exceptionals, plus a note on the USA showing slightly softer growth than expected, though still growing. However, their Signature division - which is partnered with GMAA - is outperforming the market. They conclude regarding Signature: "We continue to invest in our Signature network, including recent investments in new technology to enhance our fuel and non-fuel revenue management capabilities. As previously noted, we have been investing in enhanced EPoS and revenue management tools. The Group is confident that the outperformance of the Signature network against the US B&GA market demonstrates the ability of our unrivalled network to deliver value. Signature has recently secured a significant lease term extension with a new 20-year lease (with a possible further five-year extension) at its sole source FBO at Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Here, at what is the world's busiest hub airport, we will invest in a new FBO facility and will launch our Signature Elite™ service (private transfers to/from commercial flights via Signature's FBO facilities)." I note GMAA's price has been marked down today on a mere 7k shares traded!
