    Bombardier Sees First-Quarter Business Jet Revenue Ahead of Street Estimates

    Abstract:(Reuters) – Bombardier Inc said on Monday it expects first-quarter business jet revenue to come in ahead of analysts estimates, as rising vaccinations encourage wealthy travelers to return to flying.

      The companys shares rose 4% in early trading.

      Business jet makers are seen benefiting as more people start flying mainly for leisure purposes following easing of coronavirus-led restrictions.

      The Montreal-based makers U.S. rival Textron Inc last week posted better-than-expected results, propelled by a rebound in demand for its small and medium business jets.

      Bombardier, the maker of Global aircraft, said it expects first-quarter adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) from continuing operations of $123 million, above analysts average estimate of $89 million, according to IBES data from Refinitiv.

      The company, which has cut thousands of jobs to save costs, will report results on Thursday.

      Bombardier said its first-quarter business aircraft deliveries would be 26 planes, the same number it delivered in the year-ago quarter.

      While deliveries are roughly the same, Bombardiers product composition is shifting toward the higher-priced Global 7500 jets, which are a revenue driver.

      The company expects business jet revenue to rise by 18% to $1.3 billion in the first quarter, from a year ago, beating Wall Streets estimate of $1.18 billion.

      Bombardier said it remains on track to deliver between 110-120 business aircraft in 2021. The companys full-year deliveries fell 20% to 114 jets in 2020.

      Separately, the company on Monday launched consent solicitations with respect to its outstanding senior notes or debentures.

      Bombardier said it received a letter in April from counsel to a holder of a certain series of notes, claiming that the companys divestitures of non-core assets, including its transportation business, regional jet program and aerostructures unit, constitute a breach of certain covenants.

      Bombardier said it believes that these allegations are without merit and that it has not breached any covenant.
