Executive Summary

Plenty of cash rich to rescue the needy

1 in 6 companies in the UK Airlines industry could change ownership as a result of the current economic climate, claims a new study by leading financial analysts Plimsoll. With a surprising number of cash rich competitors waiting in the wings the market could be set for a prolonged period of consolidation. David Pattison, author of the new Plimsoll Industry Analysis - Airlines, explains, I am sure any director worth his salt would agree that, in the current climate, there are simply too many companies chasing too little market. With many directors eyeing the exit doors and highly leveraged buyouts consigned to history for the time being it really is a buyers market out there for cash rich companies. Pattison continues, in the Plimsoll Industry Analysis we have identified 32 companies that have a sizeable cash reserve sat on their balance sheets that, due to record low interest rates, is generating nothing. These companies are now in the position to buy up large chunks of market share at rock bottom prices and make that money work for them. They must be like kids in a sweet shop at the moment - all those distressed competitors available at a fraction of their true value. The UK Airlines market is still widely regarded as one of the UK's most fragmented sectors. In our report we analysed the UK's leading 88 companies are rated each on their acquisition attractiveness this will tell you which companies are set to be buying and which are exposed to takeover.
