Stobart to release full-year results two weeks later than planned

Stobart Group Ltd (LON:STOB) has pushed back the release of its full-year results by two weeks as the disposal of its airline business has taken up most of its time.

In late February, the company sold its regional airline, Stobart Air, and aircraft leasing business, Propius, to Connect Airways – a joint venture set up with Virgin Atlantic and hedge fund Cyrus Capital.

Cyrus is the lead partner in the joint venture with a 40% stake and Virgin Atlantic and Stobart have a 30% interest each.

Stobart said on Monday that the disposal and the regulatory approval process meant it had “limited additional time” to complete its annual report and accounts.

The results will now be published on May 29, instead of May 15 as previously planned.

“Stobart Group is confident of delivering full-year revenue, underlying EBITDA performance and the recommendation of a final dividend in line with management expectations,” the group said.

“In particular, management is pleased with the ongoing commercial progress within its Aviation and Energy divisions.”
