2008 guidance
2008 Guidance
  • Targeting 10-15% TTV growth
  • Currently at high end of target range in good trading climate
  • 1H pre tax profit likely to be about 40% up (excluding abnormal in PCP)
  • Expecting at least 15% full year pre tax profit growth
2008 priorities
2008 Priorities
  • Growth: Shops and businesses, as well as different product ranges, a global product “powerhouse” and expansion in various corporate brands. Franchising in Australia, FCm licensing and SME corporate business overseas.
  • Diversified revenue streams: Acquisitions and new geographies, such as Dubai and Indian retail, but also looking at transferring FLT’s proven retail model into different businesses.
  • Customer and product strategy: Constantly moving into more premium and land-based product to satisfy changing customer type as baby boomers and over-35s request more and more prestigious and luxury product, as well as premium air product.
  • Our bricks and mortar friendly web strategy: We aim to have clearly the best retail travel website with good transactional capability, a very large range of exciting and great value non transactional land and air product, as well as destinational and other highly sought after travel information.
2008 progress update
2008 Progress update


  • Increased capex – shop of future and ‘refresh”, projects nearing completion. More than 1000 FC shops done by Xmas 2008. New head office fit-outs as needed under a new, good value, off-the-shelf design.
  • Acquisition opportunities – growing traditional business and new areas of business using our successful business model in travel, travel related or other types of retailing.
  • Global property acquisition strategy initiated – Auckland building acquired and currently looking to acquire in London, South Africa and Melbourne. Certain hotel properties will also be targeted if appropriate.


  • Healthy trading conditions for travel – strong dollar, resources boom
  • Competition in the air – New carriers (Etihad, Air Asia X, Tiger, Viva Macau) arriving and increased capacity
  • Current lack of capacity having positive and negative affects


  • Geographic expansion – FCm in Dubai, India leisure (Flight Centre) as well as growing retail and SME corporate in all overseas markets.
  • 40% of TTV and 34% of profits now from overseas. Will target 50/50 split within three years.
  • FCm network continues to grow and add to our global networking opportunities. Now represented in more than 60 countries, 10 of them FCL owned.
  • Primarily targeting small, profitable companies with niche products and services, mainly in travel but also in other retail fields.
  • Will consider larger opportunities that enhance FLT’s overall operations and provide scale in a targeted international market.
  • Long-term aim to have substantial sized operations (as compared to AUS/NZ) in North America, UK/Europe and India.
  • Working to mitigate impact of regulatory requirements on ability to borrow
  • Current evaluations ongoing and incomplete
