Wayne Edmunds, BBA Aviation Interim Group Chief Executive, commented:

"We are pleased with BBA Aviation's performance overall in the first half of 2017. Against the background of a US B&GA market that grew 3%, we are making encouraging progress in delivering the benefits of Signature's unique global network of FBOs. We successfully concluded during the first half of the year negotiations with our largest customers regarding the delivery of our services across the enlarged, market-leading network and believe that the outcome demonstrates Signature's unrivalled ability to satisfy the needs of its customer base. Although we experienced a short-term negative impact on volumes relative to market during the period, Signature's strong drop through continues to demonstrate our ability to grow underlying operating profit ahead of market growth.

 

In Aftermarket Services, Ontic had a good first half and we are pleased with the contribution of the portfolio of legacy avionics products acquired from GE Aviation at the end of 2016. Ontic continues to have a strong pipeline of growth opportunities. Although ERO continues to be impacted by reduced legacy mid-cabin fixed wing flying, the slight improvement in operating performance seen in the second half of 2016 was maintained in to the first half of this year.

 

In summary, the Board's confidence of good growth in 2017 remains unchanged."

INTERIM FINANCIAL REPORT 2017

 

Overview

 

BBA Aviation performed well in the first half of 2017 and made further progress with the implementation of its strategy.

 

Flight Support ("Signature") delivered good operating profit growth of 13.6% against US B&GA movements that grew 3% during the first six months of the year. With the Landmark Aviation acquisition successfully integrated in 2016, Signature is making encouraging headway in realising the benefits of its unique and high quality global network of FBOs and in enhancing its network performance. Ontic continues to perform well, with the legacy avionics business acquired from GE Aviation at the end of 2016 contributing as expected. While trading conditions in Engine Repair & Overhaul (ERO) remain challenging, the actions being taken to reduce the cost and complexity of this business supported a stable operating performance following the slight improvement during the second half of 2016. 

 

Continuing Group revenue increased by 12.2% to $1,145.5 million (H1 2016: $1,020.6 million) including a $74m contribution from acquisitions. Continuing Signature revenue increased 18.0%, reflecting organic growth of 3.2%, a $52.8m contribution from acquisitions - principally an additional month of contribution from the Landmark Aviation acquisition (completed February 2016) - and the net positive impact of higher fuel prices and adverse foreign exchange movements, which increased revenue by $45.9 million. Aftermarket Services revenue increased by 0.8% reflecting the contribution from the 2016 acquisitions in Ontic, largely offset by an organic revenue decrease in ERO.

 

Continuing Group underlying operating profit was $174.9 million (H1 2016: $135.6 million). There was a good operating performance in Signature, with strong drop through and a $3.6 million net contribution from acquisitions less the impact of disposals completed in H1 2016. Underlying operating profit at Aftermarket Services more than doubled, including an $8.4 million contribution from acquisitions, and now accounts for 13.9% of the continuing Group. Ontic delivered as anticipated, and the slight improvements seen in ERO's operating performance in the second half of 2016 were maintained in to the first half of 2017.

 

Continuing Group underlying operating profit margin increased to 15.3% (H1 2016 constant fuel price: 12.6%) with positive margin development in Signature and Aftermarket Services.

 

Net interest increased by $1.3 million to $31.4 million (H1 2016: $30.1 million), mostly due to higher interest rates and other interest costs offset partly by lower debt. Net debt decreased to $1,256.3 million (FY 2016: $1,335.3 million). Net debt to EBITDA reduced to 2.9x on a covenant basis (FY 2016: 3.1x) and 2.9x on a reported basis (FY 2016: 3.2x). Interest cover increased to 6.7x for the 12 months to 30 June 2017 (FY 2016: 6.5x).

 

Continuing underlying profit before tax increased to $143.5 million (H1 2016: $105.5 million).

 

The Group's underlying tax rate for continuing operations was 18.3% (H1 2016: 16.6%). Adjusted earnings per share for continuing operations was up 32.6% to 11.4¢ (H1 2016: 8.6¢).

 

Exceptional and other items after tax, for continuing and discontinued operations, totalled $64.6 million. Key components of this for continuing operations are the non cash amortisation of acquired intangibles ($46.7 million), restructuring expenses ($5.3 million) and a tax credit of $19.3 million. Discontinued operations includes the disposal of ASIG ($6.6 million) and an associated tax charge on the disposal ($25.3 million).

 

Continuing statutory profit before tax was $91.5 million versus a $153.3 million statutory loss for the first half of 2016. The improvement arises principally from the lower level of exceptional and other items charged during the first six months of 2017, with the first six months of 2016 including impairment charges in relation to the assets of ERO and ASIG.

 

Free cash inflow was $35.1 million lower at $56.6 million (H1 2016: $91.7 million). There was a $65.1 million outflow of working capital in the first half of 2017 (H1 2016: $9.3 million inflow, FY 2016: $36.1 million inflow) principally due to the expected reversal of the 2016 year end working capital outperformance for continuing operations and a working capital outflow of $24.8 million on ASIG discontinued operations prior to its disposal on 31 January 2017. It is expected that approximately $15 million of the further outflow on continuing operations will reverse in the second half.

 

Gross capital expenditure amounted to $38.2 million (H1 2016: $49.6 million), including the construction of a new FBO terminal at Boeing Field, Seattle, which completed in June 2017.

 

Cash flows on exceptional and other items are largely as a result of restructuring expenses.

 

The Group made $2.1 million of pension scheme payments (H1 2016: $2.6 million).

 

The Group's tax payments during the period were $18.8 million (H1 2016: $7.0 million) and interest payments were $28.8 million (H1 2016: $29.5 million). The dividend payment was $91.5 million (H1 2016: $87.2 million).

 

Total spend on acquisitions and licences completed during the period was $61.3 million (H1 2016: $2,092.0 million), which included $59.3 million for the GE Aviation avionics acquisition in Ontic. The first half of 2016 included the acquisition of Landmark Aviation for $2,086.9 million. Proceeds from disposals of $180.4 million (H1 2016: $186.5 million) relate to the disposal of ASIG, net of costs.

 

Return on Invested Capital (ROIC) increased to 10.7% (FY 2016: 10.1%).

*Return on invested capital for full year 2016

 

Revenue at Signature increased by 18.0% to $802.8 million (H1 2016: $680.5 million). This included a $52.8 million contribution from acquisitions - principally an additional month of contribution from the Landmark Aviation acquisition (completed February 2016) - and the net positive impact of higher fuel prices and adverse foreign exchange movements, which increased revenue by $45.9 million.

 

Signature's organic revenue, excluding the contribution from acquisitions, increased by 3.2%. This was against the background of US B&GA movements up 3% and European B&GA movements up 6%.

 

Following the successful integration of Landmark Aviation in 2016, Signature has focused on optimising its unique and high quality global network and on enhancing network performance. This has included Signature engaging during the first half of the year in negotiations with its customers regarding the provision of its services across the enlarged network, focusing initially on Signature's heaviest users. During the first half, a range of important contract negotiations were successfully concluded, including with many of Signature's largest customers, and the Group is confident that the outcome demonstrates the ability of Signature's unrivalled network to deliver value and satisfy the needs of its customers. Signature is continuing to work with its broader customer base to deliver value across the network.

 

As previously guided, Signature is focused on delivering underlying operating profit growth ahead of the growth in its market.  Although there was a negative impact on fuel volumes in the first half of 2017 while negotiations with Signature's customers were underway, drop through to profit was strong. Underlying operating profit at Signature increased by 13.6% to $160.8 million (H1 2016: $141.6 million) and on an organic basis, adjusting for the net impact of acquisitions and disposals ($3.6 million) and FX ($(0.9) million), increased by 12.4%. The Group remains confident in Signature's ability to continue to deliver significant value creation across the enlarged network.

 

Underlying operating margin was slightly lower at 20.0% (H1 2016: 20.8%) due primarily to the increase in fuel prices and disposals in 2016. After adjusting for constant fuel prices and disposals, Signature's underlying operating margin increased by 1.7% points compared to the prior period.

 

Statutory operating profit of $119.7 million has increased by 54.7% (H1 2016: $77.4 million). This increase is a result of organic growth, the impact of acquisitions, net of disposals and lower charges for exceptional and other items.

 

Operating cash flow for continuing Signature improved to $154.0 million (H1 2016: $145.8 million), principally due to increased EBITDA from organic growth and the acquisition of Landmark Aviation, which completed in February 2016. Return on invested capital increased to 11.4% (FY 2016: 11.2%).

 

During the period, Signature continued to invest in its existing network, with the opening of its newly constructed facility at Boeing Field, Seattle.  It also secured a new strategic lease at Washington Dulles International Airport, Virginia.   The number of locations in the Group's affiliate FBO programme, Signature SelectTM, remains at 18. The Group continues to see opportunities to expand the Signature SelectTM network.

 

There are now 202 locations in Signature's global network.

 

Aftermarket Services (13.9% of continuing operations' underlying operating profit)

 

The Aftermarket Services division is focused on the support of maturing aerospace platforms through Ontic, the Group's Legacy Support business, and the repair and overhaul of engines through the Group's Engine Repair and Overhaul (ERO) businesses.

In Aftermarket Services, revenue increased by 0.8% to $342.7 million (H1 2016: $340.1 million). On an organic basis, adjusting for FX ($(6.3) million) and acquisitions ($21.2 million), revenue decreased by 3.7%. This decrease was driven by ERO.

 

Underlying operating profit of $26.0 million increased by 134% (H1 2016: $11.1 million). Both Ontic and ERO contributed to the uplift in profitability. Growth at Ontic was driven by the acquisition of a portfolio of avionics products from GE Aviation at the end of last year and the 2016 licence acquisitions. In ERO, the improved operating performance seen in the second half of 2016 was maintained in to the first half of 2017. On an organic basis, operating profit increased 72.5%. Operating margins improved to 7.6% (H1 2016: 3.3%).

 

Statutory operating profit of $16.7 million has increased by $14.9 million (H1 2016: $1.8 million), principally as a result of the improvement in underlying operating profit as outlined above.

 

There was an operating cash outflow for the division of $14.7 million (H1 2016: $6.8 million outflow) reflecting the expected reversal of working capital outperformance from the year end offset by improved EBITDA, including the benefit of acquisitions. Return on invested capital increased to 10.2% (FY 2016: 6.9%).

 

Ontic, the Group's legacy support business, continues to perform well, with revenue increasing 34.2% to $94.2 million (H1 2016: $70.2 million). On an organic basis, revenue was up 8.6%.

 

The first half performance included a significant contribution from the portfolio of legacy avionics products acquired from GE Aviation in December 2016. The acquired portfolio of products is delivering as expected and the transfer of the business into Ontic's existing UK facility in Cheltenham is underway, with completion expected in the second half of 2017. Ontic also benefited from the licences added in 2016 with Ultra Electronics, for the Q400 PEC, and with Safran Nacelles, to support the Saab 2000 nacelles and AWACS CFM56 thrust reverser, together with the expansion last year of its licensor relationship with Pratt & Whitney Canada Corp, increasing its portfolio of JT15D products. Furthermore, Ontic benefited in the first six months of 2017 from initiatives being undertaken to achieve a more balanced annual performance profile.  As such, a more even split is expected in Ontic's performance between the first and second half of 2017 than in previous years.

 

Ontic continues to assess a strong pipeline of opportunities in relation to new products and licence adoptions.  

 

Engine Repair and Overhaul's revenue declined by $21.4 million to $248.5 million (H1 2016: $269.9 million). While market conditions remain challenging, ERO's operating performance was stable in the first half of 2017 following the slight improvement in the second half of 2016.

 

Volumes in legacy mid-cabin engines and rotorcraft engine overhauls remained depressed through the period, with reduced workscopes and competitive pricing. Nevertheless, while the small thrust engine repair and overhaul market remains competitive and volatile month-to-month, ERO did see improvements in demand for overhauls in certain Pratt & Whitney and Tay markets, as well as market share gains for the TFE731 over the course of the first half.

 

ERO's footprint rationalisation programme is nearing completion. The new overhaul facility at Dallas Forth Worth (DFW) is successfully delivering the overhaul operations formerly undertaken at the Neosho and Forest Park facilities. The sale of the Forest Park site continues to be expected this year. It continues to be anticipated that ongoing operational improvements and cost reduction will help to improve flexibility, customer service and financial performance.

 

Central costs

 

Underlying central costs have decreased during the first half of 2017 by $5.2 million to $11.9 million (H1 2016: $17.1 million). This primarily reflects the costs of supporting ASIG being absorbed under the transitional service agreement with John Menzies as part of the ASIG disposal.

 

Discontinued Operations

 

Discontinued operations for all periods presented include the results of the Group's ASIG business. The disposal of ASIG, which completed on 31 January 2017, generated proceeds of $180.4 million, net of costs during the period. ASIG's results are included up to the date of its disposal.

 

Other Financial Information

 

Net debt reduced by $79.0 million to $1,256.3 million (FY 2016: $1,335.3 million). At 30 June 2017 the Group had total borrowings of $1,416.1 million (FY 2016 $1,547.7 million), obligations under finance leases of $1.5 million (FY 2016 $1.7 million) and cash and cash equivalents of $152.6 million for continuing operations (FY 2016: $182.5 million) and cash and cash equivalents for discontinued operations of $nil (FY 2016 $22.8 million).

 

Net debt to EBITDA reduced to 2.9x on a covenant basis (FY 2016: 3.1x) and 2.9x on a reported basis (FY 2016: 3.2x). Interest cover increased to 6.7x for the 12 months to 30 June 2017 (FY 2016: 6.5x).

 

Pensions

 

The Group's net defined benefit pension and other post-retirement benefits liabilities reduced by $2.7 million during the first half of 2017 from $82.8 million at 31 December 2016 to $80.1 million at 30 June 2017, reflecting the favourable impact of better than expected returns on plan assets and employer contributions, more than offsetting the unfavourable impact of foreign exchange movements, net interest costs and administration expenses.

 

Dividend

 

The Board is declaring an increased interim dividend of 3.81¢ (H1 2016: 3.63¢) up 5% on an underlying basis reflecting the Board's progressive dividend policy and its continued confidence in the Group's future growth prospects.

 

Board Changes

 

As previously announced, Simon Pryce stood down as Group Chief Executive and from the Board with effect from 30 June 2017. Wayne Edmunds has been appointed Interim Group Chief Executive until the process of finding a permanent successor is complete. David Crook succeeded Mike Powell as Group Finance Director on 1 June 2017.

 

Outlook

 

We are pleased with BBA Aviation's performance overall in the first half of 2017. Against the background of a US B&GA market that grew 3%, we are making encouraging progress in delivering the benefits of Signature's unique global network of FBOs. We successfully concluded during the first half of the year negotiations with our largest customers regarding the delivery of our services across the enlarged, market-leading network and believe that the outcome demonstrates Signature's unrivalled ability to satisfy the needs of its customer base. Although we experienced a short-term negative impact on volumes relative to market during the period, Signature's strong drop through continues to demonstrate our ability to grow underlying operating profit ahead of market growth.

 

In Aftermarket Services, Ontic had a good first half and we are pleased with the contribution of the portfolio of legacy avionics products acquired from GE Aviation at the end of 2016. Ontic continues to have a strong pipeline of growth opportunities. Although ERO continues to be impacted by reduced legacy mid-cabin fixed wing flying, the slight improvement in operating performance seen in the second half of 2016 was maintained in to the first half of this year.

 

In summary, the Board's confidence of good growth in 2017 remains unchanged.

Notes to the condensed consolidated half yearly financial statements

 

1          Basis of preparation

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of BBA Aviation plc (the "Group"), for the six months ended 30 June 2017 have been prepared in accordance with the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of the UK's Financial Conduct Authority and International Accounting Standard IAS 34: Interim Financial Reporting (IAS 34) which permits the presentation of the financial information on a condensed basis.  These condensed consolidated half yearly financial statements do not comprise statutory accounts within the meaning of Section 434 of the Companies Act 2006, and therefore should be read in conjunction with the Group's Annual Report for the year ended 31 December 2016. 

 

The Group's annual financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2016 have been reported upon by the Group's auditor and delivered to the Registrar of Companies.  The report of the auditor was unqualified, did not include a reference to any matters to which the auditor drew attention by way of emphasis without qualifying their report and did not contain statements under section 498(2) or 498(3) of the Companies Act 2006.

 

These condensed consolidated half yearly financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the accounting policies, presentation and methods of calculation as set out in the Group's consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2016, which were prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) endorsed for use in the European Union and the Companies Act 2006, and comply with Article 4 of the EU IAS Regulation.

 

Going concern

The directors are satisfied that, at the time of approving the condensed consolidated financial statements, it is appropriate to continue to adopt the going concern basis of accounting. Further information is given on page 7 of the interim statement.

 

New financial reporting requirements

A number of EU-endorsed amendments to existing standards and interpretations are effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2017 and have been applied in preparing the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements of the Group. There is no impact on the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements of the Group from applying these standards.

 

Financial reporting standards applicable for future financial periods

A number of EU-endorsed standards and amendments to existing standards and interpretations, which are described below, are effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2018 and have not been applied in preparing the Consolidated Financial Statements of the Group.

 

The most significant changes to the IFRS framework in these forthcoming standards and amendments to standards are IFRS 9: Financial Instruments (IFRS 9), IFRS 15: Revenue from contracts with customers (IFRS 15) and IFRS 16: Leases.

IFRS 9 addresses the classification, measurement and recognition of financial assets and financial liabilities, impairment and hedge accounting. IFRS 15 addresses recognition of revenue from customer contracts and impacts on the amounts and timing of the recognition of such revenue. In 2016 both standards were endorsed by the EU and will become effective on 1 January 2018. The assessment of the impact of IFRS 9 and IFRS 15 on the Group's Consolidated Financial Statements is substantially complete and management's expectations remain that the impact will not be material.

 

The IASB released IFRS 16: Leases on 13 January 2016. The standard has not yet been adopted into EU-IFRS. Management have not yet completed their assessment of the impact of the final standard on the Group's financial statements. However, the Group has substantial operating lease commitments and the standard is expected to have a material impact on the Group.

2          Segmental analysis

IFRS 8 requires operating segments to be identified on the basis of internal reports about components of the Group that are regularly reviewed by the Chief Operating Decision Maker (for the Group, this is the Chief Executive) to allocate resources to the segments and to assess their performance.

Based on the above, the reportable segments of the Group are Flight Support and Aftermarket Services.

The businesses within the Flight Support segment provide re-fuelling, ground handling and other services to the business, general and commercial aviation markets. The businesses within the Aftermarket Services segment maintain and support engines and aerospace components, sub-systems and systems.  Sales between segments are immaterial.

There has been no change to the Group's reportable segments since the last annual report.

Earnings per share on discontinued operations is presented in note 14.

 

Adjusted earnings per share is presented calculated on earnings before exceptional and other items (note 17). Cash earnings per share is presented calculated on earnings before exceptional and other items (note 17) and using current tax charge, not the total tax charge for the period thereby excluding the deferred tax charge. Both adjustments have been made because the directors consider that this gives a useful indication of underlying performance.

The prior period adjusted earnings per share figures were restated to use the statutory weighted average number of shares as opposed to an adjusted measure. The change ensures that the comparative period is presented on a consistent basis with the current measure as used in the 2016 annual report and accounts.

¹ Drawings carried forward under the Landmark Aviation acquisition debt facilities from 2016 were $363.4m for Facility B and $450m for Facility C. Following the completion of the sale of ASIG to John Menzies plc, part of the net proceeds was used to prepay part of Facility B under the requirements of the loan documentation. 

 

As at 30 June 2017, the Group had $500 million of U.S. private placement senior loan notes outstanding with $400 million accounted for at fair value through profit and loss as the fair value interest rate risk has been hedged from fixed to floating rates. The remainder is accounted for at amortised cost.

Under IFRS hedge accounting rules the fair value movement on the loan notes is booked to interest and is offset by the fair value movement on the underlying interest rate swaps.

The Group excludes the fair value movement on its loan notes from its definition of net debt (note 17), as this movement is offset by the change in fair value of the underlying interest rate swaps. The fair value gain on its loan notes at 30 June 2017 was $8.7 million (30 June 2016: $28.3 million; 31 December 2016: $8.8 million).

All other borrowings are held at amortised cost.

a The foreign exchange contracts disclosed as fair value through profit or loss are not designated in a formal hedging relationship and are used to hedge foreign currency flows through the BBA Aviation plc company bank accounts to ensure that the Group is not exposed to foreign exchange risk through the management of its international cash management structure.

b Derivative instruments held in fair value hedges are designated in formal hedging relationships and are used to hedge the change in fair value of fixed rate US dollar borrowings.

c Recoveries from third parties in respect of environmental and other liabilities totalling $5.7 million (30 June 2016: $4.8 million; 31 December 2016: $5.7m) are included within trade and other receivables.

d The carrying value of trade and other receivables, and other payables approximates their fair value.

 

 

 

Derivative financial instruments

The fair values and notional amounts of derivative financial instruments are shown below.  The fair value on initial recognition is the transaction price unless part of the consideration given or received is for something other than the instrument itself. The fair value of derivative financial instruments is subsequently calculated using discounted cash flow techniques or other appropriate pricing models. All valuation techniques take into account assumptions based upon available market data at the balance sheet date.  The notional amounts are based on the contractual gross amounts at the balance sheet date.

 

The fair values of the available for sale investments and derivative financial instruments are categorised within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy on the basis that their fair value has been calculated using inputs that are observable in active markets which are related to the individual asset or liability.  The Group does not have any derivative financial instruments which would be categorised as either Level 1 or 3 of the fair value hierarchy.

10         Acquisitions

On 29 March 2017 the Group's Ontic business acquired the manufacturing rights and processes from Pratt & Whitney Canada for selected JT15D engine component parts for a total consideration of $1.9 million, of which is $0.7m is deferred. The rights and processes acquired in this acquisition constitute a business under the definition of IFRS 3.

 

In the period since acquisition, the operations acquired have contributed $0.1 million to revenue and operating profit respectively.  If the acquisitions had occurred on the first day of the financial year, the total revenue and operating profit from these acquisitions is estimated to be $0.1 million respectively.

 

As disclosed in the 2016 annual report and accounts Ontic completed the acquisition of the GE Aviation portfolio and the Q400 parts series. These transactions remain in their measurement period, work on the finalisation of the purchase price accounting remains ongoing.

 

In the prior year the Group acquired Landmark Aviation which was a material acquisition. Further information in relation to the purchase price accounting for the acquisition is available in the 2016 annual report and accounts.

11         Disposals

On 31 January 2017 the Group completed the sale of its ASIG business and received gross proceeds of $202.0 million. The net proceeds of $180.4 million are stated after disposal costs and a provisional working capital and net debt adjustment to the proceeds.

12      Related party transactions

Transactions between the Group and its subsidiaries, which are related parties, have been eliminated on consolidation and are not disclosed in this note.  Details of transactions between the Group and other related parties are detailed below.

During the period, Group companies entered into the following transactions with related parties who are not members of the Group:

Purchases of goods principally relates to the purchase of aviation fuel.  Purchases were made at market price, discounted to reflect the quantity of goods purchased.  The amounts outstanding are unsecured and will be settled in cash.  No guarantees have been given or received. 

In addition, in the prior year Group companies had loan receivables from an associated undertaking at the comparative balance sheet dates (30 June 2016: $2.4 million; 31 December 2016: $2.2 million).  The loans were unsecured, were expected to be settled in cash, and were made on terms which reflect the relationships between the parties. The loans were settled through the sale of the ASIG business, see note 14.

The Group has various pension and other post-retirement benefit schemes for its employees.  Details are set out in note 13.

 

13      Pensions and other post-retirement benefits

The Group operates a number of plans worldwide, both of the defined benefit and defined contribution type. The defined benefit obligation at 30 June 2017 is estimated based on the latest actuarial valuations (31 March 2015 for the Group's main UK plan and 1 January 2017 for the Group's US plans) with assumptions updated where appropriate to reflect market conditions as at 30 June 2017 and plan assets updated to reflect their market value as at 30 June 2017. Pension costs are calculated by independent qualified actuaries, using the projected unit method and assumptions appropriate to the arrangements in place.

 

As at 30 June 2017, the Group's net defined benefit liability amounted to $80.1 million (30 June 2016: $49.4 million; 31 December 2016: $82.8 million). The reduction in the net deficit of $2.7 million since 31 December 2016 reflects the favourable impact of better than expected returns on plan assets and employer contributions, more than offsetting unfavourable impacts from foreign exchange movements, net interest costs and administration expenses.

 

14           Discontinued operations

 

It was announced on 16 September 2016 that the Group had reached agreement with John Menzies plc ("Menzies") on the terms of the sale of ASIG, a leading commercial aviation services company, for $202 million in cash. On 31 January 2017 the Group announced the completion of the sale and that all the terms of the transaction remain as outlined in the announcement made on 16 September 2016.

 

As a major line of the Group's business the ASIG operations have been classified as a discontinued operation.

Ordinary share capital as at 30 June 2017 amounted to $508.8 million (30 June 2016: $508.6 million; 31 December 2016: $508.7 million).  During the period the Group issued 0.5 million (30 June 2016: 0.4 million; 31 December 2016: 0.2 million) ordinary shares to satisfy options exercised and the vesting of share awards under the Group's various share schemes.  The consideration for shares issued in respect of share options was $0.1 million (30 June 2016: $0.1 million;
31 December 2016: $0.3 million). 

The number of shares in issue as at 30 June 2017 was 1,045.4 million (30 June 2016: 1,044.9 million; 31 December 2016: 1,044.9 million). 

 

16           Risks and uncertainties

 

There are a number of potential risks and uncertainties which could have a material impact on the Group's performance over the remaining six months of the financial year and could cause actual results to differ materially from expected and historical results. The directors do not consider that the principal risks and uncertainties have changed since the publication of the annual report for the year ended 31 December 2016. The risks and uncertainties are summarised below: 

 

·      General economic downturn leading to a reduction in revenues and profits as a result of reduced B&GA and commercial flying and military expenditure.

17           Alternative performance measures

 

Introduction

The directors assess the performance of the Group using a variety of alternative performance measures and principally discuss the Group's results on an 'adjusted' and/or 'underlying' basis. The rationale for using adjusted measures is explained below. Results on an adjusted basis are presented before exceptional and other items.

 

The directors also explain financial performance using measures that are not defined under IFRS and are therefore termed 'non-GAAP' measures or, "Alternative Performance Measures" (APMs). The APMs used in this Interim Report are: organic revenue growth, underlying operating profit and margin, underlying and reported EBITDA, underlying profit before tax, underlying deferred tax, adjusted and cash earnings per share, return on invested capital, operating cash flow, free cash flow, cash conversion, and net debt. A reconciliation from these non-GAAP measures to the nearest measure prepared in accordance with IFRS is presented below. The alternative performance measures we use may not be directly comparable with similarly titled measures used by other companies.

 

Exceptional items

The Group's income statement and segmental analysis separately identify trading results before exceptional and other items. The directors believe that presentation of the Group's results in this way is relevant to an understanding of the Group's financial performance, as exceptional and other items are identified by virtue of their size, nature or incidence. This presentation is consistent with the way that financial performance is measured by management and reported to the Board and the Executive Committee and assists in providing a meaningful analysis of the trading results of the Group. In determining whether an event or transaction is treated as an exceptional and other item, management considers quantitative as well as qualitative factors such as the frequency or predictability of occurrence.

 

Examples of charges or credits meeting the above definition and which have been presented as exceptional and other items in the current and/or prior years include acquisitions/disposals of significant businesses and investments, regulatory settlements, business restructuring programmes, and asset impairment charges. In the event that other items meet the criteria, which are applied consistently from year to year, they are also treated as exceptional and other items.

 

Exceptional and other items are disclosed in note 3 to the consolidated financial statements.

 

Organic revenue growth

Organic revenue growth is a measure which seeks to reflect the performance of the Group that will contribute to long-term sustainable growth. As such organic revenue growth excludes the impact of acquisitions or disposals, fuel price movements and foreign exchange movements. We focus on the trends in organic revenue growth.

 

A reconciliation from the growth in reported revenue, the most directly comparable IFRS measures, to the organic revenue growth, is set out below.

Underlying operating profit and margin

Underlying operating profit and margin are measures which seek to reflect the underlying performance of the Group that will contribute to long-term sustainable profitable growth. As such they exclude the impact of exceptional and other items. The directors focus on the trends in underlying operating profit and margins.

 

A reconciliation from operating profit, the most directly comparable IFRS measure, to the underlying operating profit and margin, is set out below.

Underlying EBITDA and EBITDA

In addition to measuring the financial performance of the Group and lines of business based on operating profit, the directors also measure performance based on EBITDA and underlying EBITDA. EBITDA is defined as the Group profit or loss before depreciation, amortisation, net finance expense and taxation. Underlying EBITDA is defined as EBITDA before exceptional and other items. EBITDA is a common measure used by investors and analysts to evaluate the operating financial performance of companies.

 

The directors consider EBITDA and underlying EBITDA to be useful measures of the Group's operating performance because they approximate the underlying operating cash flow by eliminating depreciation and amortisation. EBITDA and underlying EBITDA are not direct measures of the Group's liquidity, which is shown in the condensed consolidated cash flow statement, and should be considered in the context of the Group's financial commitments.

 

A reconciliation from group operating profit, the most directly comparable IFRS measure, to EBITDA and underlying EBITDA, is set out below.

Return on invested capital (ROIC)

Measuring ROIC ensures the Group is focused on efficient use of assets, with the target of operating returns generated across the cycle exceeding the cost of holding the assets.

 

ROIC is calculated by dividing the last twelve months underlying operating profit for ROIC by net assets for ROIC, both of which are at the same exchange rate which is the average of the last thirteen months spot rate. The net assets for ROIC are calculated by averaging the net assets over the last thirteen months.

 

A reconciliation from underlying operating profit to underlying operating profit for ROIC is set out below. In addition, a reconciliation from net assets the most directly comparable IFRS measures, to invested capital for ROIC, is set out below.

Operating cash flow

Operating cash flow is one of the key performance indicators by which our financial performance is measured. Operating cash flow is defined as the aggregate of cash generated by operations, purchase of property, plant and equipment, purchase of intangible assets less Ontic licences, and proceeds from disposal of property plant and equipment.

Operating cash flow is primarily an overall operational performance measure. However, we also believe it is an important indicator of our liquidity.

 

Operating cash flow reflects the cash we generate from operations after net capital expenditure which is a significant ongoing cash outflow associated with investing in our infrastructure. In addition, operating cash flow excludes cash flows that are determined at a corporate level independently of ongoing trading operations such as dividends, share buybacks, acquisitions and disposals, financing costs, tax payments, dividends from associates and the repayment and raising of debt. Operating cash flow is not a measure of the funds that are available for distribution to shareholders.

1 Purchase of intangible assets excludes $nil million (30 June 2016: $6.8 million; 31 December 2016: $10.6 million) paid in respect of Ontic licences since the directors believe these payments are more akin to expenditure in relation to acquisitions, and are therefore outside of the Group's definition of free cash flow.  These amounts are included within purchase of intangible assets on the face of the cash flow statement.

 

 

Cash conversion

Cash conversion is a key part of the Group strategy for disciplined capital management with absolute cash generation and strong cash conversion. Cash conversion is defined as operating cash flow as a percentage of continuing and discontinued operating profit. Operating cash flow has been reconciled above to the most directly comparable IFRS measure, being cash generated from operations.

Net debt

Net debt consists of borrowings (both current and non-current), less cash and cash equivalents and the fair value adjustment on the US Private placement loan.

 

Net debt is a measure of the Group's net indebtedness that provides an indicator of the overall balance sheet strength. It is also a single measure that can be used to assess both the Group's cash position and its indebtedness. The use of the term 'net debt' does not necessarily mean that the cash included in the net debt calculation is available to settle the liabilities included in this measure.

 

Net debt is considered to be an alternative performance measure as it is not defined in IFRS. The most directly comparable IFRS measure is the aggregate of borrowings (current and non-current), and cash and cash equivalents. A reconciliation from these to net debt is given below.

Independent Review Report to BBA Aviation plc

 

We have been engaged by the Company to review the condensed set of financial statements in the half-yearly financial report for the six months ended 30 June 2017 which comprises the consolidated income statement, the consolidated statement of comprehensive (loss) / income, the consolidated balance sheet, the consolidated cash flow statement, the consolidated statement of changes in equity, and related notes 1 to 17. We have read the other information contained in the half-yearly financial report and considered whether it contains any apparent misstatements or material inconsistencies with the information in the condensed set of financial statements.

 

This report is made solely to the Company in accordance with International Standard on Review Engagements (UK and Ireland) 2410 "Review of Interim Financial Information Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity" issued by the Auditing Practices Board.  Our work has been undertaken so that we might state to the Company those matters we are required to state to it in an independent review report and for no other purpose. To the fullest extent permitted by law, we do not accept or assume responsibility to anyone other than the company, for our review work, for this report, or for the conclusions we have formed.

 

Directors' responsibilities

 

The half-yearly financial report is the responsibility of, and has been approved by, the directors.  The directors are responsible for preparing the half-yearly financial report in accordance with the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of the United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority.

 

As disclosed in note 1, the annual financial statements of the Group are prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by the European Union.  The condensed set of financial statements included in this half-yearly financial report has been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34, "Interim Financial Reporting," as adopted by the European Union.

 

Our responsibility

 

Our responsibility is to express to the Company a conclusion on the condensed set of financial statements in the half-yearly financial report based on our review.

 

Scope of review

 

We conducted our review in accordance with International Standard on Review Engagements (UK and Ireland) 2410 "Review of Interim Financial Information Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity" issued by the Auditing Practices Board for use in the United Kingdom. A review of interim financial information consists of making inquiries, primarily of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters, and applying analytical and other review procedures. A review is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with International Standards on Auditing (UK and Ireland) and consequently does not enable us to obtain assurance that we would become aware of all significant matters that might be identified in an audit. Accordingly, we do not express an audit opinion.

 

Conclusion

 

Based on our review, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the condensed set of financial statements in the half-yearly financial report for the six months ended 30 June 2017 is not prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34 as adopted by the European Union and the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of the United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority.
