Executive interview - easyJet

• easyJet focuses on developing strong positions in Europe’s leading airports – flying between airports that people want to travel to with optimised frequency. Its principal competitors at these leading airports are the legacy airlines and charter carriers, rather than other low-cost carriers that operate in secondary and tertiary markets.
• The company is delivering its strategy through six pillars: building strong number one and two network positions; maintaining a lean cost advantage; customer and operational excellence; growing revenue; leveraging data and digital platforms; and hiring and developing the best people.
• In challenging markets, its strategy of building on its competitive advantages – its network and market positions, efficient low-cost model, well-known brand and strong balance sheet – should position it to deliver sustainable and disciplined growth and returns for shareholders.

Pub Sector: repercussions of the Market Rent Only law

Pub Sector: repercussions of the Market Rent Only law

Legislation effective today makes it possible for pub tenants to set aside the traditional drinks tie with pub companies, and instead buy their drinks from cheaper sources. Pub companies have had time to adapt their strategies where relevant. This will change the sector in ways the sponsors of the legislation did not intend. We anticipate less immediate disruption than headline would suggest, although the inevitable uncertainty comes at exactly the wrong time given the post-Brexit hit to consumer confidence.

Executive Interview - Tourism Holdings

Executive Interview - Tourism Holdings

Tourism Holdings (THL) has been listed on NZX since 1986. It is the largest motorhome rental operator in the world, with a fleet of ~3,700 motorhomes designed to meet the needs of the free independent traveller (FIT) market. In this interview, CEO Grant Webster discusses the impact on demand from a weaker NZ$, the rationale behind the acquisition of a UK-based business and the results of a recent strategic review. THL has undertaken a classic industry consolidation by buying two key competitors, right-sizing the fleet and reducing operating costs. It is now on track to achieve an acceptable ROCE of 14% by FY16, which will enable it to shift its focus from recovery to growth mode. Future growth initiatives include increasing the level of engagement with the customer.
