Solid report but suggestion of "subdued trading conditions" probably contributed to today's SP decline - down1.73% @ $3.98
SEALINK TRAVEL GROUP ANNOUNCES INTERIM RESULT FOR HALF YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2018
QUOTE
Highlights
Financial
 Total income of $130.4m, up $31.7m or 32.1%
 Net Underlying Profit After Tax of $13.1m, up $1.7m or 15%
 Strong Net Operating Cashflow of $28.9m, up 63% from $17.7m in the first half of FY 2018.
 Underlying EBITDA up 8.0% to $25.7m compared to $23.8m in 1H FY 2018 primarily attributable to a
pleasing Fraser Island contribution, offset by weaker Captain Cook Cruises performance in NSW and
WA.
 Lower tax expense associated with benefit of marine training incentives.
 Net debt reduced by $12.5m or 11.8%.
 Basic EPS for 1H FY 2019 increased 14.3% to 12.8 cents per share from 11.2 cents per share in 1H
FY 2018.
 Interim dividend of 6.5 cents per share in line with 1H FY 2019, representing a 50.7% return of aftertax net profit to shareholders.
 Underlying net profit after tax for the second half of FY 2019 to be higher than the first half of FY 2019,
assuming average seasonal and current business conditions.
The Board has declared a fully franked interim dividend of 6.5 cents per share, payable on 2 April 2019, which
is in line with previous interim dividend.


QUOTE
Outlook
SeaLink’s strategy of creating a strong geographic diversified tourism and transport operator to iconic tourism
destinations, with solid commuter markets, continues to position it well for sustainable earnings and growth.
Despite more subdued trading conditions in the tourism sector, we anticipate that SeaLink’s 2H FY 19 NPAT will
be higher than that which was achieved in 1H FY 19, assuming average seasonal and current business
conditions remain over the remainder of FY 2019.

We are pleased with our disciplined cost management, which we anticipate will enable SeaLink to build profit
margin in a normal operating environment, and we are continuing to actively pursue value-accretive acquisition
opportunities that have a strong strategic fit with our transport and tourism focus.

Rottnest Express all at sea as SeaLink rivalry bites
Sean SmithThe West Australian
Friday, 1 February 2019 11:11AM
QUOTE
The owner of Rottnest Express has for the first time laid bare the cost of SeaLink’s arrival on the ferry route 15 months ago, disclosing a $26.7 million hit against the WA business.


QUOTE
SeaLink launched on the Rottnest service against Rottnest Express and the Hillarys-based Rottnest Fast Ferries in November 2017, offering six extra daily trips to the island and cutting ticket prices by as much as 30 per cent.


QUOTE
SeaLink, which also operates Captain Cook cruises on the Swan River, last year put combined start-up costs for its Rottnest route and a new Sydney service at $400,000, disclosing also that the services posted trading losses totalling $1.8 million for 2017-18.

However, it told shareholders at its annual meeting in Adelaide in November that the Rottnest route recorded positive EBITDA for the year.

Low $A a 'sweet spot' for Aussie tourism
QUOTE
But for Mr Ellison, the chief executive of SeaLink Travel Group, it was just more good news. The low dollar has played a "fundamental" role in the growth of the ASX-listed aqua-tourism company over the past year.

"The dollar definitely helps. It makes it cheaper for tourists to come over here," Mr Ellison said between meetings. "But also, domestically, to go overseas it costs more, so we get more local tourists enjoying our country as a holiday destination."

SEALINK NOTES SA GOVERNMENT RESPONSE TO CONTRACT EXTENSION
QUOTE
In 2015, SeaLink Travel Group Limited (SeaLink) requested that the South Australian Government consider
extension of SeaLink’s existing arrangements for use of the port facilities at Cape Jervis and Penneshaw to
underpin further investment by SeaLink in both vessels and South Australia.

SeaLink has been verbally advised by the South Australian Minister for Transport and Planning, Stephan
Knoll that the Government has reached a decision in response to that request and decided the use of port
infrastructure and facilities will involve a competitive tender to take effect from 1 July 2024 as part of these
arrangements.

SeaLink is currently continuing discussions with the Government regarding future arrangements and will
update the market as information is available. The current contractual arrangements remain in place until
July 2024.

We welcome the Government’s decision to move the process forward and provide clarity to SeaLink, its
shareholders and the 370 staff we employ in South Australia
.
SeaLink has an extensive and growing national footprint including ferry and other operations on Sydney
Harbour, several locations in Queensland and Northern Territory, Western Australia and South Australia.
Most recently it won the competitive tender to operate the Bruny Island ferry service in Tasmania.

Kangaroo Island fast ferry service told to pay for dredging Cape Jervis sandbar
QUOTE
After only four months of operation the Kangaroo Island Connect ferry service has again run into problems, with the owner saying he has been told to pay for his own dredging despite the SA Government funding similar operations elsewhere.

A sandbar at Cape Jervis has affected the catamaran ferry over the past few months, forcing it to either moor at the local jetty or stop operating at low tide.

Managing director David Harris said carrying out the dredging needed to get the vessel to its licensed berth would be extremely difficult and expensive.

Latest rumor from AFR

Private equity ferries NRMA to SeaLink
QUOTE
While this column has not confirmed that it was NRMA that made a $481 million indicative bid disclosed last month - as first reported by Street Talk - it is understood Australia's peak road association has already held its own far ranging talks with SeaLink in recent months about whether the two can work together.

KI Connect will commence running a 2nd passenger ferry service to Kangaroo Island - in competition with Sealink

Second Kangaroo Island ferry service starts after months of delays
QUOTE
"For 25 years there's been a monopoly," he said.

"[SeaLink is] an extremely well-run company, but all big markets need competition and diversity.

"We've had 6,000 people within 24 hours access our website to have a look, so there's a tremendous groundswell to get a more competitive transport service to Kangaroo Island, and we're meeting that need, so I don't think it will be a problem — it's just getting it done."

KI Connect's adult fares start at $25 one way, compared with $49 for SeaLink.
