BBA Aviation Announces Proposed Acquisition of Landmark Aviation


BBA Aviation plc (the "Company" and, together with its subsidiaries, the "Group") recently announced that it has entered into a stock purchase agreement to acquire Landmark Aviation ("Landmark"), an integrated aviation provider offering end-to-end services for aviation customers, for a consideration of $2,065 million (the "Acquisition").  BBA Aviation also announced the launch of a rights issue to raise £748 million in proceeds (the "Rights Issue") which will be used to finance in part the Acquisition.

Landmark is one of the largest FBO networks in the world, with 68 locations in the United States, Canada, France and the United Kingdom. It has locations at premier airports including New York (White Plains), New Jersey (Teterboro), Los Angeles, Miami, San Diego, Washington DC (Dulles), Paris (Le Bourget) and London (Luton).  Landmark is one of the leading charter operators in the United States currently with over 110 aircraft under its charter and management flying over 15,000 charter hours annually.

The Rights Issue is a fully underwritten 6 for 5 rights issue of 562,281,811 million ordinary shares of 27.5 pence each in the capital of the Company at a price of 133 pence per ordinary share ("New Ordinary Shares").

The Board of Directors of the Company (the "Board") believes that the Acquisition represents a good opportunity for Signature Flight Support ("Signature") and its customers to create significant cost-saving and quality-enhancing efficiencies in the fragmented fixed base operation market by applying Signature's operational excellence to Landmark's portfolio. The Acqusition deepens the Company's exposure to the attractive business and general aviation market with its structural growth drivers.

Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner

Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner

The 787-9 Dreamliner is a stretched version of the 787-8.  It has a seating capacity suitable for 250-290 passengers. In the past, the 787-9 aft and mid fuselage sections was fabricated, assembled, and integrated at the North Charleston plant in South Carolina. From there, it was sent to Everett for final inspection.

The 787-8 achieved final assembly at the South Carolina plant for over three years. The first assembly of a 787-8 in South Carolina occurred in 2012. Now, in 2015, the plant is celebrating a new milestone with the delivery of the first 787-9 to roll out of Boeing South Carolina Final Assembly. The Dreamliner rolled off the assembly line in January 2015 and completed its first flight last month. In addition to being the first 787-9 from South Carolina, it is also the 250th Dreamliner to be delivered.

Airlines continue to take possession of the new Dreamliner. In July of 2014, All Nippon Airways took possession of their first 787-9 Dreamliner. Their new plane will allow ANA to meet the growing demand for air travel as the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics approach. ANA is the first airline to operate both Dreamliner variants, the 787-8 and the 787-9. The advantage of the 787-9 over the 787-8 is a fuselage that is 20 feet longer.

Allowing up to 40 more passengers per plane, on top of that the 787-9 will use 20 percent less fuel and produce 20 percent fewer emissions than similar planes. ANA has already ordered 29 more. More than 1000 787’s have been ordered by sixty different customers. Currently, 160 of them are in operation. If the 787-9 wasn’t enough, the new 787-10 will continue to improve on the platform.

The first 787-9 Dreamliner assembled in South Carolina was delivered to United Airlines.  This increases United’s fleet of 787-9’s to a total of four. In addition to their 4 787-9, United Airlines has 12 787-8’s already in service. United was the first North American carrier to fly the 787-8 in September 2012 and the first to fly a 787-9 in September of 2014. After receiving their 787’s, United Airlines has opened new direct routes from Los Angeles to Melbourne.
