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!

rivaldo - Must be the season when posters wish to pick a quarrel...as I’m sure you noticed yesterday on the normally quiet backwater that is the APC thread. Anyway...I would just like to add my appreciation on you posting the info on contract wins. Yep, no financials mentioned but such news can be a good bell-weather with respect to momentum or growth in a particular area/sector/region. Lots of moving parts with GMAA. Many thanks. Kind regards GHF

All the info posted is relevant as it relates to GMAA. As I say, you can draw your own conclusions. Until then, please stop wasting everyone's time - just let the thread tread water. If you have nothing interesting to say, then bear in mind the words of David Byrne: "Say something once, why say it again?"

The trading statement was only a week ago, and concluded: "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." News such as these and other contract wins in the last few months tend to support the improved outlook above. Better to make occasional informative posts about the company enabling readers to draw their own conclusions, than perpetual moans which just waste everyone's time, including the poster's. I will continue to post any such relevant info which I'm alerted to.

Looks like good news = falling share price. These individual bits of good news is just PR ie meaningless without financial elaboration. We haven't a clue whether its significant in terms of profitability, and of course we never hear of any contract losses.

More new contract wins: Https://www.gamaaviation.com/news/european-news/aircraft-management/ "17th Jul 2018 Gama Aviation wins Bombardier Global 5000 and Gulfstream G650ER contracts Gama Aviation leverages global team to win new aircraft management contracts Farnborough, 17rd July 2018 – Gama Aviation, the global business aviation services company, is pleased to announce it has secured two new aircraft management contracts after the completion of competitive tenders for both. The first, a three-year contract, will see the company oversee the delivery and subsequent management of a Bombardier Global. The aircraft, once delivered from Bombardier, will fly extensively within the US, Europe and Asia. Mark Gascoigne, European Managing Director commented: “Our client will use the aircraft intensively for time sensitive missions. On understanding the mission requirements and logistics, we determined how we could reduce single point failures via our global network to minimise schedule risk and downtime during each flight. Our passion to simplify and de-risk an otherwise complex logistical exercise was the primary reason for our selection, something that no-one else, in the view of our client, could achieve.” The second contract awarded this month, sees the addition of a new type to the fast-growing Asia fleet. The Gulfstream G650ER will join the fleet on delivery, making it the second Gulfstream to join the Asia fleet in the first six months of this year. Sergio Silva, General Manager commented: “We are extremely pleased to add another tail to the fleet in Asia. We are seeing an increasing trend amongst knowledgeable owners in Asia, towards companies that have the capability to support the full capabilities of their aircraft, whether at its home base or down route in say, Las Vegas. This simplifies the mission for the pilot, the owner representative, the EA and the owner, as they understand they’ll receive end-to-end support from us locally and via our comprehensive global network.”

The company says this morning that "we continue to evaluate several potential acquisitions .......and are in advanced discussions on a number of these." Vague, as one would expect, but sort of fascinating. 'Several', to me, implies 2-5 or 6. 'A number', in this context, has to be less than several, so perhaps 2-3 or 4. We shall see. Whatever, it should be more than two!

GMAA are very cheap purely based on 26.4c EPS this year alone. Even if next year's forecast was downgraded to say 32c EPS then GMAA would still be very, very cheap. And of course, we're hopefully soon going to get acquisition news which could increase those forecasts substantially.
