1. Overview & Rationale:

The report provides a holistic assessment as well as comprehensive analysis of the Business Activities, Strategic Initiatives, Strategic Measures, Business & Strategic Developments and Strategic Moves for Cessna Aircraft Company for Q1 2014 and provides an analysis of how they integrate with & fit into the medium term strategic picture & overall business strategy against the backdrop of an evolving industry landscape witnessing the beginning of a shift & decentralization of demand & activity concentration for business jets segment away from North America with growing demand from Emerging Markets and ongoing economic recovery across North America & Western Europe amid a multitude of macroeconomic challenges as well as uncertainties.

2. Backdrop: Global Business Aviation Industry Continues to Make Steady Strides on Recovery Path:

The Global Business Aviation Industry continued steadily on the recovery path with the Business Jet shipments growing by 1% for 2013; standing at 678 units as against 672 for 2012 spearheaded by the large-cabin, long-range aircraft segment which registered record aircraft deliveries and accounted for almost 41% of the shipments in 2013 with a tremendous year on year growth rate of 18%, thus also underscoring the significance of aircraft billings over shipment numbers as the new indicator as well as correct measure of industry growth with the focus on value rather than mere volume. The total aircraft billings across the business & general aviation sectors grew by 24% in 2013 and stood at $23.4 billion as compared against the industry peak & pre-crisis level of $25 billion in 2008. In terms of markets, the North American market accounted for about 52% of total business jet deliveries in 2013 as against 49% for 2012 with the decline in shipments in the European market.

The growth of the large-cabin, long-range segment has been extremely favourable for the industry’s Top 3 OEMs, namely, Gulfstream, Bombardier & Dassault, who continue to grow their share of the global business jet market, especially, Gulfstream which has been able to catapult itself to the top with the ramping up of G650 production in 2013. Amongst OEMs, Bombardier led the industry pack in terms of deliveries while Gulfstream retained the top spot, in terms, of aircraft billings for 2013. The light & mid-size jet segments on the contrary continue with their contractionary trend. Fleet utilization levels for business jets, however, have remained decent driving growth for the MRO activity.
