"We look beyond the movement in the daily share price as we take a strategic long-term view of these businesses, and we have conviction that they will deliver value, growth and returns for our shareholders over the long term.

“Agility’s acquisition of UK-based aviation-services provider John Menzies PLC, completed in Q3, is part of Agility’s strategy to add and grow core businesses with the potential for strong returns.

"By combining our National Aviation Services (NAS) business with Menzies, we’ve created a global industry leader with a footprint in developed and developing aviation markets around the world.

“Agility is a different company today than it was two years ago, but we continue looking to accelerate growth across our portfolio by unlocking value for shareholders, customers, employees, partners and communities."
