Well that was painful. If this is all down to lower maritime growth and overall profit then perhaps more attention should be paid to aviation growth. By my calculations if aviation continues to grow at 30% per quarter it will overtake maritime revenue in less that 3 quarters. Have I got that wrong? That's without EAN which is now slated for early 2019. State owned Indian partner applied for permissiom to build IAN this week with 500 towers. I've not yet researched Indian air mile and internet usage growth but would guess it's not small.

Sentiment isn’t helped by the fact that ISAT appears on Dr Edward Altman’s “Red” warning list on his Z-score system.Altman contrived a method in the 1960s of identifying companies likely to go bust.He looked at various ratios and boasts a 72% accuracy rate.Anyway,Inmarsat ,along with companies like Mitchell and Butler and Debenhams are flashing red.Its a worry because one senses the management are pursuing what could prove to be disappointingly low margins in a very competitive aviation market when it comes to inflight systems,while maritime continues to struggle.An inability to do simple cash flow computations is a given with ISAT as its past dividend policy suggests.Perhaps the company mistakenly believes that its still quasi government owned and will be baled out in an emergency.

The dividend is the root of all evil in this company. I’m seriously still amazed that the halfwits running this company continued to pay it for as long as they did.

For now they pay a dividend, but earnings a debt might see an end to that.What caught my eye was another 3 years of £500m a year CAPX, and I thought that is mostly done by this year? Are they building spare satellites or something? Terrestrial infrastructure for aviation perhaps?

True,but in their case,they paid too much for too long and then suddenly realised that their cash flow was inadequate to fund the level of dividend.They lost the plot as far as cash flow was concerned.Not good.

It's one of those situations where there's a clear divide between what the management think is an acceptable performance and what the stockmarket thinks is ok.Another company which comes out with self congratulatory remarks is BTG which even applaud themselves for not paying a dividend and keep shifting the sales targets of product development.BTGs price has underperformed like ISAT,albeit not quite as bad.It's fair to assume that news of these underwhelming figures leaked out and explains recent weakness.In due course,this company will be taken over,its always the way but opportunity cost suggests that patiently waiting to be bailed out by a predator often isn't worth it.

Probably just not fast enough growth in aviation. Strange though, surely weak numbers brings the bidders back into play?

The board ‘remains confident’ despite the fact the shareprice is £1 below what they termed a deeply opportunistic bid. I haven’t come to grips with why the share price is getting smashed today, but these people really are the worst example of UK corporate mediocrity.

Aha, I can't see anything terrible, is it ligado, or lack of the one off, mysterious government revenue they got last time?

tHIS IS VERY STRANGE - YESTERDAY AND TODAY SHARE PRICE IS MOVING(sorry for caps) and showing as low trades - then all of a sudden its 700,000. This share price did the same thing before the previous bid was announced - loads of smallish trades - and the share price moves up - yesterday and today - far higher than the average 3m. showing more sells than buys and yet the price is up. I just wonder if this is doing the same thing prior to the June bid - lots of trading with small volumes...HMMMM may only be a theory - but I think something is afoot - well wait and see eh?? GLA
