YEAR END UPDATE

 

The Board of Air Partner has identified, during the course of its year-end review process, an issue predominantly relating to its accounting for receivables and deferred income.

Following preliminary investigations, the issue principally relates to the collection of receivables from customers and accounting for uncollected amounts since financial year 2010/11. Certain uncollected receivables were inappropriately offset against deferred income rather than being expensed to the income statement in the appropriate financial year. This is a non-cash item and has no bearing on the Company's cash balances.

Whilst the investigation continues, the Board presently understands that the cumulative amount between financial year ended 31 July 2011 and the financial year ended 31 January 2018 is approximately £3.3 million and a significant proportion of this relates back to 2011.

At no point was a customer, operator or supplier impacted or disadvantaged. Further, the Group continues to maintain a strong net cash position.

The Board of Air Partner will update the market as appropriate.
