Air Serbia to collect share from $500m transaction


Air Serbia will receive a share of the US $500 million raised on international markets by Etihad Airways, its airport services business, the Serbian carrier itself and four other Etihad partner airlines (Air Berlin, Air Seychelles, Alitalia, and Jet Airways). It marks the second platform financing transaction, following the success of last year’s bond which raised $700 million. The funds raised by the transaction will be used for capital expenditure, purchasing new aircraft and refinancing debt, depending on each individual airline’s needs. Last year, Etihad Airways, Etihad Airport Services, Air Berlin and Alitalia each received almost 20% of the funds. A further 16% was given to Jet Airways, while the remainder was divided between Air Serbia and Air Seychelles. The exact share each carrier will receive this time around has not been specified.

The additional funds for Air Serbia come in the lead up to the airline's launch of transatlantic flights. Furthermore, the carrier recently finalised the operating lease of an Airbus A330-200 from Jet Airways and Etihad Airways (as the sub-lessee), with the partaking of foreign export credit agencies and banks that provided financing for the lease which is said to be on a five-year term. Air Serbia recorded a net profit of 3.9 million euros and 305 million euros worth of revenue in 2015. The carrier's CEO, Dane Kondić, recently said, "Our strategy in 2016 is to strengthen the network further by taking advantage of Belgrade’s position as the gateway to the Balkans and capturing regional traffic flows to the United States".

Commenting on the latest transaction, James Hogan, President and CEO of Etihad Aviation Group, said, “With this second successful transaction, the international financial markets have continued to show their belief in the Etihad Airways Partners story". He added, "Our equity partner strategy is creating a total which is greater than the sum of its parts, a grouping which can work together to improve revenues, reduce costs and uncover exciting new business synergies. This transaction shows the strength of that grouping, as well as the strength of the individual members. This second tranche of combined fund-raising is part of our long term capital strategy".

      Sounds EXTREMELY expensive ans way above the market rate to me.

    4. Apparently it's 500,000 EUR per month but the airline has never confirmed this.

    5. 4% is to be split between Air Serbia and Seychelles, so it is about 2%.

      Most of that money anyhow goes to leasing to Etihad, education etc., so it is not that Air Serbia will get this money to account.

      0,5 million per month should be normal price, but god knows how much we pay for that and other planes. Concerning things we know how much we pay to Etihad, Air Berlin and Alitalia, we pay more than market price.

      Maybe JU is forced to lease from within the alliance at more expensive rates than it would pay if it leased from a lessor?
      What do you guys think?

      Delete
    13. So over the life of this contract the aircraft's average age will be higher than 10 years old.
      Thank you for proving my point Anon 1:41 PM!
      Air Serbia is paying a lot more money for leasing this A330-200 from EY group than market price.
      Plus Air Serbia will have to pay for the D-check.

      People there is no "alliance" or anything like that as you keep on writing.
      There is the ETIHAD group of companies.
      ETIHAD management decides what the subsidiary airlines will do.
      If EY wants ASL or any other airline to help one of the struggling members like Jet by leasing surplus aircraft at expensive lease rates it can do it and it does.
      This is because it is not alliance of airlines but subsidiaries of Etihad.

  4. Call me a hater or sceptic, but I am not really supportive of the current Etihad Group model. Air Berlin saw no benefit, Etihad Regional was a joke, Jet Airways and we will see how Alitalia will cope with the latter not to mention Air Serbia. I hope I am wrong of course. You can't just build hubs in Berlin, Rome and Belgrade - connecting them to Abu Dhabi and try to make something out of this. There is no clear strategy of the group such as Qatar, Emirates, etc. They just do code-sharing, have no determined fleet, no common goal. Just chaotic. Yeah, if I want to fly SKP-SYD I have to do SKP-BEG-AUH-SYD or SKP-BEG-AUH-SEZ. Not to mention WAW-BER-AUH-MRU with Air Berlin.

If you want to fly from TGD or SKP or SJJ or ZAG or LJU (or any non-major city in Europe) with Lufthansa or KLM or Austrian or Air France or British or even Turkish, you would need to change your aircraft at least twice JUST AS with AirSerbia/Etihad. I don't get your point.

    6. Zanimljivi i smješni komentari. Kao prvo ovo nije prvi put da Etihad radi ovaj način doniranja para za potrebe finansiranja svojih članica (pošto vidim komentare kao da su to uradili u vreme kada je AS počela da plaća sve obaveze na tesli), to su isto uradili i prošle godine. Drugo najam 330-200 je urađen u američkim dolarima i to je je suma od 450 000 USD što znači oko 350.000 eura. Znam da ima dosta ljubomore ali to je realnost.

    7. But it is true, Anon. 12.36. You were writing about flight from Skopje to Sidney, and how AirSerbia-Etihad connection is bad, bad, bad. But when I pointed out that there are no direct flights between FRA, MUC, ZRH, or CDG, AMS, LHR, IST (or any other Europan airport) and SYD (and the rest of Australia), you suddenly are traveling to HKG!!! Well if you still want to reach SYD with Star Alliance on any other European carrier from ZAG or from (your original example) SKP, you need to change your aircraft TWICE. So sorry, you are wrong and there is nothing unusual with Air Serbia in that regard.

      Delete
    8. Okay, so you tell me what Etihad´s main target is? For example QR and EK have an extensive network of West to East and vice versa. TK is expanding in more countries. Etihad is just focusing on buying smaller airlines and code-sharing but with no solid grounds or strategy behind it. Also what´s the point in investing on a A330 for JU when they can get 2-3 regional jets - this is what the region needs, not flights to America where this market is already overwhelmingly oversaturated.

    11. To su ulaganja Etihada, ne krediti. Etihad je suvlasnik, ne kreditor. Ukoliko je nezadovoljan, Etihad može da proda svoj udeo, ne može da traži vraćanje para. Mislim da se tih 10 A320neo ne uzima u lizing, već da će oni postati vlasništvo Air Serbie, isto kao što Croatia Airlines kupuje 4 A320neo.

    12. Ovih 10 A320neo ide u leasing (vlasništvo su Etihada, a ne Air Serbie), pa to je već odavno poznato. Vodila se rasprava što je sa parama koje je kao polog imala Srbija.

      20 miliona EUR je kredit, prikupljanje novaca na TRŽIŠTU, nikakva to nisu ulaganja. U ugovoru piše da Ethad može da prekine ugovor kada god poželi i to bez objašnjenja razloga i tada Air Serbia mora da vrati 60 miliona od 100 miliona "investicije". Naravno, tada je i ovih 20 miliona od prošle i ove godine koje treba vratiti.

      To je kredit, dakle sve to će morat da se vrati. Pa je to je još jedna metoda ucene. Kako će Air Serbija da vrati tih 20 miliona EUR (dve godine po 10 miliona), kako će da plača lizing 10 A320neo, kako će da vrati 40 miliona "kredita" koji su "investicija" Etihada ako Etihad neće da potpiše novi ugovor 2018. Srbija će morati da pristane na sve što će Etihad da traži.

      Zapravo je prestrašno da Etihad mora da traži kredite da bi cela grupacija opstala. Air Berlin, Alitalia, Jet, Darwin su rupe bez dna.

      Na kraju ovde treba da se pita. Ako je Air Serbiji dato 10 miliona kredita prošle godine, a profit je 4 miliona to znači da je Air Serbija zapravo u minusu 6 miliona. I još kada se doda "investicija" Srbije preko BEG i direktno. Pa ovaj projekt košta daleko više nego Jat.

      I što će da bude kada to sve dođe na naplatu, a pre ili kasnije će da dođe.

      Delete
    7. @ Mali Marko

      If I remember right, the 'loss' JU made last year was around 18 million euros, when putting in the subsidies it had received.

      Compared to Jat, Air Serbia has 4 times more aircraft flying, many more destinations, frequencies, connectivity, more employed Serbs paying taxes and spending money in Serbia, not to mention that payments are being made on time.

      Serbia is financing it in one way, but JU is directly and indirectly bringing money into Serbia.

      Regarding the A320neo, originally it was to be 8 A319's, for which Serbia had an expensive deal legacy of the Milosevic regime, for which Airbus was going to take Serbia to court for, which Serbia would of lost. Not only would Serbia have to pay for expensive 'older generation' ac it would have to pay legal fees. USD$23.5 million has been payed for the A319's which got transferred over to a new deal made by EY through their purchasing power which gave JU a better deal.

      I'm not saying Air Serbia hasn't cost Serbia, but it is far less than what Jat cost us.

    3. That money does not make you profitable. They can just cover your losses so that you don't go bankrupt since the state is not allowed to subsidize the company.
      To actually be profitable you need your ticket and cargo sales revenues to be higher than your expenses.

      Delete
    4. Or it can be used to invest in airline's expansion - because expansion always bears costs that often cannot be covered from regular profit.

      I know you lot hate them so bad and dream about their death every single night, but raising some extra cash in the market is really not some kind of genuine conspiracy of ASL's management. It is what companies do, airlines included.

      Delete
    5. Expansion costs should be in P&L, so the profit should finance these expenses.
      If there are no fleet investments (just leasing expenses) - so for what reason there is need for cash while being profitable for some years now?

      Delete
    6. Ideally the profit should finance the expansion.

      However, if your profit is lower than the expansion investment then you have other options. You can loan the money from banks and hope to remain profitable after you pay the installments. Or you can raise some money on the capital market under better terms than those offered by the banks. Or, if you have a strategic partner who decides on how the expansion will be financed, you leave the decision to the strategic partner.

      So where exactly do you see a problem?

    8. @Anon 4:46PM

      Believe it or not, financing capital expenditures from profits/cash reserves only is often not the most prefered option. Most of the companies do a split where the portion is financed from equity and portion by debt issuance. The reasons for this are multiple but it involve interest rates, overall cost of borowing, company risk profile, minimum cash reserves required etc.

      2012. -119 milijuna EUR
      2013. -50 milijuna EUR
      2014. -580 milijuna EUR
      2015. -199 milijuna EUR

      Dakle vidljivo je da je stanje od dolaska Etihada (jun 2014.) lošije nego prije preuzimanja.

      Ovo me podsječa na one tvoje izjave kako je Austrian gubitaš iako je te godine i nekoliko godina prije bio pozitivan.

      Sinko dragi, nije dovoljno biti navijač i željeti neke činjenice. One se neće ostvariti zato što ti tako želiš. Treba malo i čitati, informirati se, pronači podatke. Sramota je ovako!

    4. Let's stick to the facts. The article has nothing to do with financial performance.

      Članak nema nikakve veze sa finansijama. Još jedan pokušaj da se izvučeš iz blata u koji se sam baci.

      A ono sa Austrianom se svi sečamo. Tvrdio si da je Austrian u tom momentu neprofitabilan i da je to već godinama. A to nije bila istina i čovek te lepo demantiro.

    6. Dal će Alitalija biti u plusu to tek treba da se vidi, jedno su želje a drugo realnost.

      A to da kasne vesti, pa nije nečija želja vest, nego želja. Vest bi bila da su u prvom kvartalu pozitivni, a eto nisu.

  18. Air Serbia haters are finally giving up on "won't get approval" or "A330 will never arrive" mantra and are now emphatically embracing "won't be profitable" as they are painting themselves into a shrinking corner of hate. Oh, the next few weeks will be Armageddon or pure bliss, depending on your point of view!

    1. the so called "haters" are annoying, but so are you since you are clearly trying to start a pointless discussion. You could have simply said "good to see that JU finally got all the permits"

    2. What is annoying is endless discussion of financial performance of Air Serbia.

    3. and that is not important in one air company?

    4. Financial performance is quite well but many refuse to accept it and they turn discussion into annoying trolling against Air Serbia.
