the story of airasia, is one of unfortunate circumstances, just as it comes out of covid it is hit my energy crisis, it has about RM600m+ of depreciation and finance cost hurdle, which means just to make zero profit it needs an EBITDA of RM600m+ while in the last Q the EBITDA was only RM308m : NOT 308m profit but 308m loss !!! with the qtr previous to that RM200m loss also, therefore it will take many quarters for airasia to come into the black....
After Pandemic, market getting weak , Inflation is coming, People are force to ride airasia. Will air asia come back ? Yes ? But the time going be long than expected. Previously PP is fully subscribed. Will shark help Tony to hold the share price, The answer is Yes, They don't wish the share price drop . Will Tony giving support, Yes, even he like to spend like a Rich Man, he still wish that his reputation is solid build. Therefore Share price will keep tahan but the debt is going to take long time to recover.... AA,,,,,, Waitttt... or go next counter if faster. (My 2 cent opinion) not buy call.
richardsharing, it should be impossible to bankrupt right? their subsidiaries air asia x and even its magic but aax already turn to profitable in his account. when their business aax turn profit and uplift to pn17 due their account should be their parent capital a more money from little profit aax
Good sign at klia2 today. Very crowded for the long weekend. Totally underestimated the travel rebound. From children to senior, local to mat salleh, it seems that everyone is going somewhere. What you read online about hater’s comments, refund issue, delay, PN17 and even inflation don’t stop people from flying airasia. Soon, people will forget all these and continue planning for their next holiday.
HelloDetective, that one was real, air asia was private sector and not gov.. when no business ofcourse no income. their quit struggle now and as per analyst meight be will take 4year will become profit with slow movement and if their aggressive then i dont know. compare to airasia other flight like european more sick situation and the passenger sleep at airport cause of deleey or cancell and dissmiss their staff.. ofcourse their gov and society have good free will and unlike our country...subsidies or corrupts. memaki hamun tahap ganas nak rm10k epf..
Still got people not yet got thier refund, Tony admitted to that. But he added that AA had completed its refunds, the remaining refunds are under AAX, which will start refunding after 8th of June this year.
now the number of passenger carried is stiil far low compared to precovid. only about 30% of what they used to have. (Q1 2022: 3.7mil: Q1 2019: 12,5mil). coupled with the high fuel cost now, little bit hard for AA to achieve the pre-covid profit level.
I told you not to buy airasia, there is big headwind ahead.

DickyMe mendaratkan kapalterbangnya, memandangkan cuaca buruk yang bakal melanda. Mengikut ramalan kaji cuaca AA, ribut petir bersama angin ribut dan hujan ais batu bakal berpanjangan sehingga pertengahan November.
Maka Dickyme masuk gua untuk bertapa selepas melepaskan pegangannya.
when covid happen in mar 20, AA drop like shit to 50cent and ppl said buy and hold patiently for maximum2 yrs, sure AA will go back to RM2. see what happen now, now is June 2022, did AA go back to RM2, it is still at 60cent.
then ppl start to say, give it another 2 yrs, wait until 2024, SURE AA can go back to pre-covid share price. and ppl keep finding all excuses to convince themselves that invest in AA is long term.
so imagine 2024 came, and AA remain 60-70cents, so what action u take? u have wasted 4 yrs ady, continue to wait for another 2yrs and keep on finding all non sense reason and convince urself to be patient/ be long term investor and so on??
any1 saw how much Cap A used in Q1, it has used about MYR900mil and only left with RM300mil, next round of funding will come very soon. pity all the money funded via various way such as right issue, private placement, sabah state loan, others. All of it jz gone/burned like that.
any idea what the channel of next fund raising exercise?
Tony Fernandes’s Capital A Group is planning New York listings for its low-cost AirAsia airline and a digital super app, the Financial Times reported on Sunday.
“If you want to be an actor, you’re probably going to want to end up in Hollywood at some stage in your career,” Fernandes told the Financial Times.
“We think the time is right for part of Capital A Group to be listed in the US,” he was quoted as saying.
He said the group had begun compliance work and envisaged two separate listings, one for AirAsia “sometime next year”, followed by the so-called super app, which will offer services from travel to takeaways.
The company, which previously considered merging its digital businesses with a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), dipped into the red during the pandemic, prompting audit firm EY in July 2020 to question its ability to survive. Fernandes said that issue had now been resolved.
Capital A, previously known as AirAsia Group, has been aggressively building its digital businesses and super app over the last two years as most of its planes were grounded due to travel restrictions to contain the COVID-19 pandemic. The group has hoped to build its super app, modeling regional tech giants such as Grab’s and Gojek’s super apps which offer a variety of services including ride-hailing, food delivery, and payment services.
Capital A remains under Practice Note 17 (PN17) on the Malaysian stock exchange — a listing for groups in financial distress. Fernandes, who is Capital A’s Chief Executive Officer, insisted that was a solvable “accounting” issue, which “doesn’t reflect the fundamentals of the company”, he told Financial Times.
He said 85 of AirAsia’s 212 aircraft were now flying, with 80 to 90 percent load factors, and 176 aircraft back in the skies by December. “I think in the third and fourth quarter, we would be EBITDA-positive, including leasing, and so . . . I’m quite confident of 2023 being profitable and definitely cash flow positive,” he was quoted as saying.
Capital A’s first-quarter losses widened to MYR903.79 million ($204.67 million) from MYR767.42 million a year ago. Revenue jumped 152.78 percent year-on-year to MYR811.78 million.
Commenting on the listing plans, Fernandes cited his success in transforming from Warner Music executive to budget aviation pioneer after buying AirAsia from the Malaysian government in 2001 for less than $1, would eventually sway investors.
“Twenty years ago, when I started this airline, no investor wanted to invest in us. It wasn’t a very convincing story to say you’re going to start up an airline when you’re from the music business, with no money, and go up against Malaysia Airlines, Singapore Airlines and the like,” he was quoted as saying.
“Twenty years later, I now say I’m going to take on these digital unicorns. Probably not a convincing story either from an airline that’s struggling, going through Covid, has a weak balance sheet, etc. But it’s slowly coming,” he told Financial Times.
The airasia super app was valued at around $1 billion in July last year in a deal where the digital arm of AirAsia Group will acquire Gojek’s operations in Thailand for $50 million. The purchase considerations for the proposed acquisitions will be wholly satisfied by the issue of new shares in the airasia super app. Gojek will own 4.76 percent in airasia super app after the acquisition, the companies announced then.
On Monday, Capital A shares were trading at MYR0.635 at the time of writing, giving the group a market capitalization of MYR2.642 billion ($598.26 million) .
