Go-Ahead Group statement on London Midland Following a period of consultation over the last couple of months, London Midland has agreed a package of benefits with the Department for Transport to compensate passengers for cancelled trains and delays to services. We acknowledge the impact that this has had on our passengers and we have now put measures in place to ensure we have sufficient drivers to operate our services. We also welcome the confirmation that the London Midland franchise has been extended until September 2015 which gives us the opportunity to provide longer term investment in our services for the passengers' benefit.

11 December 2012 The Go-Ahead Group plc 4 Matthew Parker Street, London, SW1H 9NP Telephone 020 7799 8999 Press Release 11 December 2012 THE GO-AHEAD GROUP PLC ("GO-AHEAD" OR "THE GROUP") PRE-CLOSE TRADING UPDATE Resilient performance in bus and rail; our expectations remain unchanged Go-Ahead today announces its pre-close trading update for the six months ending 29 December 2012, ahead of its half year results which will be released on 21 February 2013. Overall: Trading in the second quarter of the year has remained robust 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 a resilient performance across our operations, with all of our companies seeing growth in commercial revenue in the year to date. "Our bus division continues to perform well in a challenging economic environment and we are well placed to meet our target to achieve bus operating profit* of GBP100m by 2015/2016. Our passenger journey growth trends are sector leading and our London bus operations remain best in class. "We continue to lead the transport industry in the development of smart ticketing. There are now over 300,000 passengers using our smartcard "the key" and the roll out of mobile ticketing across our bus operations is progressing well. We strongly believe that making travel more convenient for our passengers, combined with innovative and targeted marketing, will attract more people onto our services. "All three rail franchises have delivered good passenger revenue growth in the year to date. We are committed to operating in the rail market and are helping to shape the future of the industry through our involvement in the Government's review of rail franchising. For the benefit of passengers, employees and tax payers, it is important that the franchising timetable resumes as soon as possible. "Whilst we remain suitably cautious about the medium term wider economic outlook, we are encouraged by our robust performance."

trt - I was looking forward to broker upgrades, but I'm not sure they are as positive as you suggest. I agree though, that for me this isn't a trading share, it is one for the ISA, but the question is: can management deliver! Rather than spending my dividend on holidays and such like, I have reinvested mine................in GOG shares! Phil

Broker upgrades suggest more upside. For the last 6yrs I have held, for me no point dipping in and out waste of money paying additional trading fees. Reinvesting the dividends has benefitted me tremendously.

now the question for me is . . . whether to bail at 1400 (if it gets there!) or to hang on in the hope of a bit more upside! And then there's the dividend . . .

Bus opertaing profits should grow to £100m by 2015/2016 feasible with a step change in performance.It plans to do this through a combination of revenue growth driven by high-quality services, innovation and marketing, and cost efficiency.The focus on improving ticketing, cost savings and other earning enhancing steps in its bus business is positive. These are long-term sustainable businesses, unlike rail franchises which are, by their nature, time limited.

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?
