Rail will become just an added benefit bus revenue will replace rail by 2016. Brokers are impressed expect more upgrades as the days go by.

I would hope to see some broker upgrades over the next day or two. Are managements ambitions to push bus profits up to £100 million realistic and what chance of them being achieved?

Press Release 18 October 2012 THE GO-AHEAD GROUP PLC ("GO-AHEAD" OR "THE GROUP") BUS INVESTOR EVENT AND INTERIM MANAGEMENT STATEMENT Bus Investor Event The Go-Ahead Group plc is hosting a Bus Investor Event this morning in which it will announce a target to organically grow bus operating profit* to GBP100m by 2015/2016. This will be achieved through a combination of revenue growth driven by high quality services, Innovation and marketing, and cost efficiency. No other new financial information will be disclosed at the event. Interim Management Statement - strong trading; no change to full year expectations Go-Ahead today announces its Interim Management Statement for the period from 1 July 2012 to 17 October 2012, ahead of its Annual General Meeting on 25 October 2012. Overall: Strong trading has continued into the first quarter of the year and our expectations for the full year to 29 June 2013 remain unchanged. David Brown, Group Chief Executive of Go-Ahead, said: "I am pleased to report strong growth across our regulated and deregulated bus businesses, demonstrating the effectiveness of the Group's strategy of providing high quality, cost efficient and locally focused bus services. "We believe there is significant potential to grow this core part of our business and today have announced a target to organically grow bus operating profit* to GBP100m by 2015/2016. "We remain committed to operating in the UK rail market and are pleased to report strong underlying growth in passenger revenue across our three franchises. "Following the Department for Transport's announcement regarding the postponement of current rail franchise competitions and a review of the franchising process, Go-Ahead looks forward to working with the review team to help shape the future of UK rail franchising. "The London 2012 Games took place during the first quarter of our financial year and I am really proud of the key role Go-Ahead played in helping to deliver a highly successful transport network for the Olympics and Paralympics. "Whilst we are encouraged by our performance in the first quarter, we remain suitably cautious about the medium term wider economic outlook." * excluding amortisation and exceptional items Bus: Deregulated: Our operations outside London have performed well, with the majority of underlying growth driven by fare paying, rather than concessionary passengers. Fare increases were introduced in the last financial year to offset the reduction in BSOG and fuel cost increases. The yield is in line with our expectations. Revenue Passenger journeys ----------------------- -------- ------------------- Total c.9% c.6% ----------------------- -------- ------------------- Excluding acquisitions c.5% c.3% ----------------------- -------- ------------------- Regulated: As anticipated, revenue growth in London has been strong in the quarter as a result of increased mileage due to contract wins, the acquisition of the Northumberland Park depot in March 2012 and contractual work for the Olympics. Revenue Mileage ----------------------- -------------------------- -------------------------- Total Underlying Total Underlying (including (excluding (including (excluding Olympics) Olympics) Olympics) Olympics) ----------------------- ------------ ------------ ------------ ------------ Total c.21% c.14% c.13% c.11% ----------------------- ------------ ------------ ------------ ------------ Excluding acquisitions c.13% c.6% c.6% c.4% ----------------------- ------------ ------------ ------------ ------------ Rail: Our rail division operates the Southern (including Gatwick Express), Southeastern and London Midland franchises through our 65% owned subsidiary Govia. All three franchises saw underlying growth in line with expectations in the quarter. Whilst the Olympics resulted in additional passenger revenue and passenger journeys, the profit impact was largely neutral, as anticipated. Passenger revenue Passenger journeys* --------------- -------------------------- -------------------------- Total Underlying* Total Underlying* (including (excluding (including (excluding Olympics) Olympics) Olympics) Olympics) --------------- ------------ ------------ ------------ ------------ Southern c.9% c.7% c.0% c.-1% --------------- ------------ ------------ ------------ ------------ Southeastern c.16% c.9% c.9% c.1% --------------- ------------ ------------ ------------ ------------ London Midland c.17% c.14% c.7% c.5% --------------- ------------ ------------ ------------ ------------ * Passenger revenue and journeys associated with the Olympic and Paralympic Games are based on estimates. Following the Department for Transport's announcement regarding the postponement of rail franchise tenders and review of rail franchising, we await further information regarding the Thameslink bid process. Assuming that the franchise process restarts before the end of our financial year we now anticipate rail bid costs of around GBP5m this financial year. Outlook: The Group remains in a good financial position with strong cash generation and a robust balance sheet, underpinning the dividend policy and allowing flexibility to pursue further value adding acquisitions. Our expectations for the full year to 29 June 2013 remain unchanged. ENDS For further information, please contact:

Thanks for that, Bunnji - do you think an invitation to tender in October will result in an RNS from the company?

Back in 2009 very difficult indeed to predict accurate pax figures. No rail company has achieved it to date regardless of which franchise they run. Financial support won't actually be needed in any case come Sept 2013 as the new franchise will have started by then.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/transport/9526574/Go-Ahead-warns-it-may-need-taxpayer-support-for-Southern-rail-services.html Go-Ahead warns it may need taxpayer support for Southern rail services Train and bus group Go-Ahead has admitted it may have to seek taxpayer aid for its Southern rail franchise next year in the latest blow to the Government's transport policy.Southern, which provides commuter services between London and the South Coast, has been hit by the double-dip recession and growth expectations are not matching the forecasts made by Go-Ahead when it bid for the lucrative rail contract in 2009. Under the terms of the 2009 deal, Go-Ahead is allowed to claim revenue support from the Government from September 2013 if Southern services continue to undershoot forecasts. While Go-Ahead is far from the first transport company to seek revenue support, the admission comes during a politically sensitive time in the rail industry. It will add to the pressure on the new Transport Secretary, Patrick McLoughlin, who has inherited the threat of a judicial review over the recently awarded West Coast franchise. FirstGroup has been accused of winning the franchise between London and Scotland based on "unrealistic" growth assumptions.Critics of FirstGroup, led by Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Rail, believe there's a high chance it will have to hand back the keys to the West Coast line as its "risky" forecasts will fail to materialise. David Brown, chief executive of Go-Ahead, insisted his company was doing everything it could to avoid going cap in hand to the taxpayer but said the "jury is out" as to whether it would be able to avoid drawing down on revenue support. "It's quite a tough job that they [the Southern team] have got to do but they are focused on trying to grow the top line still and get back onto that trajectory," Mr Brown insisted. But Bob Crow, leader of the RMT rail union, said revenue support was akin to "corporate scrounging". "This is yet another example of the one-way ticket to the bank for the private rail operators," he said. "If they can't extract a fat profit they can fall back on the corporate welfare of revenue support." Weaker growth on Southern last year coincided with a £52.7m increase in Go-Ahead's payments to operate the line until July 2015. Go-Ahead yesterday unveiled a 3.4pc dip in full year pre-tax profit to £94.2m despite a strong performance from its bus division. Hardly the best strategy ,,,, given the Thameslink franchise to be decided in May !!

If GOG win the Thameslink franchise the share price will rocket.At the moment nothing is priced in hence the share price not moving above £13. I am here for the yield currently over 6% can't get that in any savings account ! Share price growth is just a bonus.

Hi trt - market underwhelmed as we might expect. Dividend maintained and the dividend cover has improved which is good. I'm not sure what it would take to send the share price much above 1300. Question is: is the share price going to stay sub 1300 so I can buy some more when the dividend is paid?
