BigAir lifts FY11 ebitda forecast

Fixed WiMax operator BigAir (ASX:BGL) has raised its FY11 ebitda forecast to $5.2 million from $4 million, after achieving strong growth for the month of March

Fixed WiMax operator, BigAir (ASX:BGL), has upgraded its FY11 ebitda guidance by 30 per cent on the strength of its performance so far.

The company - which operates a network covering Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, the Gold Cost, Adelaide and Perth - now expects to post a full-year underlying ebitda of $5.2 million.

This would be a 63 per cent increase on the company's FY10 ebitda of $3.2 million.

BigAir said its consolidated revenues surpassed $1.9 million for the month of March, with $1.4 million earned by the fixed wireless division and the remainder from its student accommodation unit.

Underlying ebtida for March likewise reached $625,000, representing an annualised run rate of $7.5 million.

The company also expects to achieve more savings from the restructuring and integration of its recent acquisitions, including Clever Communications and AccessPlus.

BigAir estimated that a further $1.6 million in annualised cost savings will be realised over the next 12 to 18 months.

BGL shares fell 2.7 per cent during Friday's trading to $0.180.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
