Nor sure why they are worried about Ligado?

FT comments that profit figures beat expectations due to a one off secret government contract not previously disclosed whilst revenue undershot with maritime contracting 5%.I presume the recognition of that "one off" credit to profits explains the turnaround in the stock immediately after the figures were released.

Thanks for that. Time to hold I feel. There seems little justification for the share price drop over the last 2 yrs; like the header says.... That said , the earnings may not cover the yield again and at some point the technology R&D premium label wears thin.

Interesting point on the call: increasing numbers of new aircraft are being oredered with a spec of GX IFC - they don't announce these; they only announce the big retrofits. Also China is apparently building 10 airpoorts a year (contrasted with a new runway in 25 years in the UK!) and they see China as a growth market. China Airlines is trialling GX.

Indeed, government and aviation strong growth. Nearly at the end of the capex cycle, some transition between old and new tech...

Webcast currently ongoing - some interesting stats on maritime addressable market doubling by 2020. Price fell before the start of the presentation at 8.30. Overall presentation seems strong - IMHO this is a growth company on a value rating. They made the point strongly that forecasting 1/4 on 1/4 is difficult and they don't want to be place in a position where they announce a small decline in a qtr and it is viewed as a failure, but the overall trend is strongly growth market. Questions from analysts lasted a long time - overall 2 hrs 15 mins!

Nothing to scare the horses in the interims this morning. They remain cautious on the outlook for the year, but that seems conservative and could lead to some upgrading of forecasts after Q3. The dividend increase implies more confidence.

Nice test flight. Pathetic data rates. Good luck streaming Netflix to 300 people. Anyway, it lets you check your emails, and that's the main thing... And there is no alternative.

andrewhbruce - "Good full page article by Mr Bearbull in IC with a 'more like £11 value'" For once I was ahead of him. I did think that £11 value might take some time to show in the share price but as mentioned before they are well ahead of the competition so happy to hold.

Philis - Yes thanks for spotting and posting that article. In a past life I had some telecom experience and I agree with zcaprd7 the 'first to market' do normally have an advantage, and yes it's quite usual for competitors to dream up objections based on some technical jiggery pokery. I like the 'issued a cease and desist order' bit, just like the headmaster at my old school telling us roudy kids to behave and act honourably (Not that 'honour' has much meaning these days haha)

From DT Plans to provide Wi-Fi internet access on planes across Europe could be grounded as satellite operator Inmarsat faces a court challenge from rivals. ViaSat, Eutelsat and Panasonic have lodged a complaint with the European Court of Justice seeking an injunction on the proposed service, which is expected to be a lucrative new business for the FTSE 250 company. Inmarsat launched the required satellite last week and plans to switch on the Continent-wide European Aviation Network (EAN) towards the end of the year, after it gains clearance from national telecoms regulators. ADVERTISING Rupert Pearce, Inmarsat chief executive, said EAN is destined to be one of its biggest revenue sources, eventually providing in excess of $1bn a year (£770m). Last year Inmarsat had total revenues of $1.3bn. But its rivals argue that the company has twisted the grounds on which its licence was originally granted in 2009. They say the S-Band radio spectrum granted was supposed to be used for rural satellite broadband, and that most connections will be from stations on the ground. In-flight Wi-Fi The in-flight Wi-Fi service is meant to go live this year Credit: AP The three companies have now resorted to the European Court, claiming the European Commission should have prevented national regulators from granting Inmarsat permission to use the spectrum for in-flight Wi-Fi. "The air to ground network that they're proposing is inconsistent with the procurement," said Rick Baldrige, ViaSat's chief operating officer. A number of telecoms regulators including Ofcom are still deciding whether to approve Inmarsat's proposals. Mr Pearce dismissed the legal challenges, saying the companies were “just making mischief”. "We are very confident about our licence and have issued a cease and desist order on them,” Mr Pearce said. “We take very seriously the damage to our reputation this could cause. “They have made the same argument to regulator after regulator and each time their claim has been refused - they are just trying to slow us down. We have licences in all locations we need to commence operations and we are nearly there with building the ground stations - we are confident everything will be done in time.” ViaSat and Eutelsat plan to launch their own satellite above Europe at the start of the next decade that they claim will provide a better service than the primarily terrestrial network Inmarsat is launching.

One wonders what the implications are of the Airbus announcement as they seem entering our space.
