Guru Investment Theses on Ryanair Holdings PLC

Baron Funds Comments on Ryanair Holdings - May 29, 2014

Shares of Ryanair Holdings plc (RYAAY) increased in the first quarter, after the company announced a favorable fourth quarter and provided some detail around plans to grow market share in the business travel segment. Ryanair is a low-cost European airline flying 80 million passengers per year. We continue to see opportunities for Ryanair to carry more passengers over time, in both high-demand, high-traffic airports and secondary airports, as high cost incumbent airlines struggle to competitively price tickets in the face of rising fuel and labor costs.

Baron Funds Comments on Ryanair Holdings PLC - Nov 22, 2013

Ryanair Holdings plc 's (RYAAY) share price declined 3.5% in the third quarter. Ryanair is the lowest-cost short-haul airline in Europe. In early September the company cautioned that near-term demand is expected to be weaker than previously expected. This news put pressure on Ryanair's shares as well as those of other European airlines. The company's share price rever sed course quickly and r ecouped much of its lost ground by quarter end. We continue to believe that Ryanair will take market share from incumbent airlines that have higher airport and labor costs. (Aaron Wasserman)

Baron Funds Comments on Ryanair Holdings - Aug 24, 2012

From Baron Funds' second quarter commentary:

Ryanair Holdings plc (RYAAY) is an "ultra low cost" airline that flies 79 million passengers on 294 aircraft over 1,500 routes in Europe. Ryanair is Europe's largest airline with 11% market share, but its share is expanding as passengers continue to favor low-priced, no-frills travel. Ryanair is the most profitable airline in the world, generates the highest return on its invested capital, and has returned more cash to shareholders than any other airline. RYAAY operates the lowest per-passenger cost structure, by flying point-topoint service to non-congested airports, hiring non-union labor and outsourcing aircraft maintenance. Low costs and low fares stimulate demand on routes that become unprofitable for competitors, so Ryanair flies alone on over half its routes. Several competitors have consolidated or closed operations, a trend we think will continue, and we think Ryanair's incremental route gains should enhance profitability. We believe that Ryanair has an attractive, open-ended growth opportunity for the next several years. (Aaron Wasserman)
