Gama Aviation PLC Investment in UK maintenance facilities 24/05/2018 12:30pm UK Regulatory (RNS & others) Gama Aviation (LSE:GMAA) Intraday Stock Chart Today : Thursday 24 May 2018 TIDMGMAA RNS Number : 2129P Gama Aviation PLC 24 May 2018 Thursday 24th May 2018 Gama Aviation Plc (AIM: GMAA) ("Gama Aviation", "the Company" or "the Group") Investment in UK maintenance facilities Gama Aviation Plc, one of the world's largest business aviation services providers is pleased to announce the transfer of its primary turboprop and jet maintenance facilities from its 25,000 sq ft facility at Farnborough Airport and its 48,000 sq ft facility at London Oxford Airport into a flagship 135,000 sq ft secure facility at Bournemouth International Airport during the second half of 2018. The move will provide necessary capacity for expansion of the company's European Ground business, which grew by 20% in 2017, while delivering immediate efficiency savings. Restructuring costs of c.$2m, which will be funded out of operational cashflow, will be incurred largely in 2018 and treated as either exceptional items or capital expenditure, with no impact on underlying profitability of the Group. The cash costs related to the restructuring will be offset by the end of the first half of 2019 through capital contributions by the new landlord and a rent-free period. The transfer will deliver near-term efficiency savings and revenue synergies which are expected to more than offset the costs of additional space from 2019 onwards, while also laying the foundations for further growth. Neil Medley, Group Chief Operating Officer said: "To support the continuing growth of our high performing UK maintenance business we are investing in a flagship maintenance facility to provide the capacity for maintaining all types and sizes of business aircraft for European clients. This will in turn allow the growth and development of our talented pool of engineers, as we add a range of new capabilities to broaden our service offering." Marwan Khalek, Group Chief Executive said: "This investment in a large, secure and modern MRO facility removes the physical constraints on our Ground business and is a powerful signal of our intent as we accelerate our growth strategy in Europe." Steve Rigby, Chief Operating Officer, Rigby Group (owners of Bournemouth International Airport) said: "We are delighted to welcome Gama Aviation to Bournemouth International Airport. This move will create a major new facility for business aviation as a core component of the strategic development of the airport." Gama Aviation's Europe Air division, and its Ground facilities in Aberdeen, Glasgow, Jersey, Fairoaks and Doncaster are unaffected by the above.

Downing Micro-Caps also had this to say further down the report which I missed first time around :o)) "Gama Aviation PLC (Gama) Gama is a global business aviation service provider, headquartered at Farnborough airport. It focuses on air operations (business aircraft management, special missions and charter of business aircraft) and ground operations (engineering, design, software, maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), passenger handling and consultancy). Investment case · Organic growth: we expect natural growth to be aided by the increasing cost of compliance which naturally favours players with scale, crowding out the smaller, localised operators that characterise the business aviation market. We also expect margin growth through operational efficiencies and new higher margin activities. · Consolidation: Gama is one of the top three global players in the sector. Owing to the crowding out mentioned above, the fragmented market, and Gama's public listing, we believe that the company has the potential to be the consolidator of the market. · Re-rating: underlying the operational and market opportunity, we believe that the business is misunderstood and undervalued by the market. Key to a rerating will be Gama's ability to closely control working capital and consistently generate free cash flow. These are aspects which we believe are improving with every successive reporting period."

Downing Micro-Cap investment Trust - who have a £5.4m stake in GMAA - reported results this morning, and they're rather pleased with how GMAA are doing so far: Https://www.investegate.co.uk/down-microcap-invtst--dsm-/rns/final-results/201805240700091036P/ "Gama is delivering exactly on our investment case. In February 2018, the company raised £48 million to deliver a number of organic growth initiatives in Asia, the Middle East, and the US, as well as further inorganic growth initiatives. As part of this, it also gained a material strategic investor in Hutchison Capital Holdings Limited who now own 21% of the equity. The Board was also strengthened in the period. We believe that these growth initiatives could be transformational for the business in the mid to long term. Post period end, the business posted a positive set of full year results. The focus has been on free cash flow generation and, pleasingly, Gama generated US$14 million in 2017. Operating margins continue to improve across the segments in line with management's long-term targets of 5% in the Air division and 20% in the Ground division."

Given that GMAA have a longstanding and successful FBO at Sharjah airport, this report from Sharjah reads well given the expansion, increased number of passengers etc (with a brief name check for GMAA): Https://www.albawaba.com/business/pr/sharjah-airport-authority-unveils-new-logo-identity-and-celebrates-employees-and-strateg Excerpts: "H.E Sheikh Faisal bin Sauod Al Qassimi, Director of Sharjah Airport Authority, spoke and presented a video which revealed the final shape of Sharjah International Airport after the expansion. The program was followed by the segment “Journey to the Top”, which included a video that featured the airport’s prominent figures and showcased the significant achievements during the past year and during the first quarter of 2018. An LED interactive show unveiled the airport’s new logo and identity, prior to the event’s conclusion, which honored the authority employees and strategic partners." "H.E Sheikh Faisal bin Sauod Al Qassimi, Director of Sharjah Airport Authority.....reviewed SIA’s most prominent achievements during the past year, emphasizing the number of passengers who traveled through SIA in 2017 increased to 11.4 million, while the airport recorded 76 thousand takeoff and landing movements, a success, in light of the regional and global challenges facing the aviation sector. He also pointed out that SIA benefited from its geographical location and proximity to many seaports in raising air traffic."

SoundBuy, I can't remember any comment from Downing on the legals. However, GMAA in their presentation at Mello recently stated definitively (from my memory anyway) that there would be a net cash inflow from these cases. I can rarely remember a company being so positive on a legal outcome. GMAA themselves stated in the 2017 final results that when: "all these proceedings, some of which are with the same counterparties, are determined or settled, the Board expects the overall awards and settlements to result in a cash inflow to the Company".

You don't have to wait long Corrientes, resolution is next month. https://tinyurl.com/y9zvobw6 Hopefully a spike back up to £2.50 will be on the cards as well.

Sorry, but I still feel that until a successful resolution of these various legal claims is settled, the share price will go nowhere.Uncertainty is a killer. These contract wins are surely just part and parcel of what you'd expect of a company of this size. I just hope the legal claims being made, primarily by Mr Dryden, are virtually all Hangar8 related issues.

The maintenance and servicing of one of these aircraft definitively does not come cheap. And this is the third such win already this year. As for profitability, operating profit increased 28% last year to $18.7m from $14.6m in 2016. This year PBT is forecast to be £16.02m, i.e around $21.5m. Next year, as the newly financed growth fully kicks in, PBT is expected to rise to £24.5m - this against a £135m m/cap. And of course we're expecting further earnings-enhancing acquisitions any time soon, which would increase EPS nicely from 21.3p EPS this year and 29.2p EPS next year.

Isn't the point that all these contract wins are small in the scheme of total revenues... it probably covers client base churn

Hopefully you won't have to wait long Correntes, its next month, unless we get an appeal etc. I FEEL these will shoot up, when we get a positive outcome.

Is this the equivalent of turnover is vanity, profit is sanity ? With all these wins, the stock market should be getting a sniff of greatly increased profitability,but its not there. Must be a cash problem, or dare I say waiting on the outcome of the legal issues, regardless of the board expecting a net receivable.

Excellent - another service contract win..... Https://www.gamaaviation.com/news/article/gama-aviation-europe-adds-bombardier-global-6000-managed-fleet/ "11th May 2018 Gama Aviation Europe adds Bombardier Global 6000 to its managed fleet. European Air team add Bombardier Global 6000 management contract after competitive bid. The aircraft represents the third Global 6000 to enter the fleet since the start of the year. Farnborough, 11th May 2018 – Gama Aviation, the global business aviation services company, is pleased to announce the addition of a Bombardier Global 6000 to its European fleet. The announcement follows the recent introduction of two Global 6000’s into the Asia fleet. Gama Aviation’s ability to support the aircraft locally and internationally were amongst the defining factors in the client’s final decision. Although primarily for private use, the aircraft will be available on a limited basis for charter out of Farnborough, representing one of the newest Global 6000’s within the UK charter fleet. Mark Gascoigne, Managing Director, Europe Air said: “I’m delighted that our new client selected us after a hard-fought process. We offered a simple solution, that combines our high level of local client service with our ability to leverage our unique global scale, breadth and depth to support the aircraft wherever and whenever the owner flies.”

Primae facie it seems that positive comments about GMAA are from a parallel universe to this one,unless the alleged continuous selling by a significant holder is the culprit.

Positive trading statement today from BBA, particularly re Signature, whose revenues are up 13.9% - which should reflect well on GMAA's merged Signature business in the USA: Https://www.investegate.co.uk/bba-aviation-plc--bba-/rns/bba-aviation-plc---trading-update/201805110700027318N/

Purchase of 1200 shares , via the " fill or kill " order , successful at £ 2.26 at 9.00 this morning . Correctly shown on the Hargreaves Lansdowqn site as a purchase .

I tried to add 1200 shares this morning on-line with Hargreaves Lansdown , but this instruction was repeatedly refused . As the NMS is only 750 shares , I tried to purchase this amount , but I was again refused . I then thought that I would try two purchases each of 600 shares , but again no success . Having 'phoned Hargreaves lansdown , I have placed a " fill or kill order " for the full 1200 shares . Presumably a shortage of shares with the dear market makers . Good luck all .

Its crazy how it went down in the first place, the court case is coming up, (JUNE) so hopefully a successful conclusion will also give the S/P a spike.

Great finish yesterday, with a late buy at 223p. If our seller is now out, there's lots of upside here - certainly a bounce to 250p-260p for starters, with the AGM statement likely to give things a further push.
