Volaris Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Results: Continues Building Its Market, Growing Revenues and Expanding Margins in 2013

MEXICO CITY, Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Volaris* (NYSE: VLRS and BMV: VOLAR), the ultra-low-cost airline serving Mexico and the US, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2013.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Highlights: Advancing "The Volaris Ultra-Low-Cost Carrier Model"

The following financial information, unless otherwise indicated, is presented in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Unless otherwise stated, all comparisons with prior periods refer to the fourth quarter or full year of 2012.

  • Total operating revenues was Ps.3,184 million and Ps.13,002 million for the fourth quarter and full year, respectively, a decrease of 1.1% and an increase of 11.3% year over year, respectively.
  • Operating expenses per available seat mile (CASM) decreased to Ps.114.8 cents (US$8.8 cents) and Ps.116.4 cents (US$8.9 cents) for the fourth quarter and full year 2013, respectively, a 6.7% and 4.9% decrease year over year, respectively. CASM excluding fuel decreased 7.3% and 2.0% in the same periods, respectively.
  • Adjusted EBITDAR was Ps.484 million and Ps.2,806 million for the fourth quarter and full year, respectively, resulting in an adjusted EBITDAR margin of 15% and 22%, respectively. Adjusted EBITDAR and net income excluding special items grew by 13% and 86% in the year, respectively.
  • Net loss excluding special items for the fourth quarter was Ps.49 million (Ps.4.8 cents per share / US$3.7 cents per ADS), and net income excluding special items for the full year was Ps.379 million (Ps.44.1 cents per share / US$33.8 cents per ADS).
  • We continued to build our market by transporting 21% more passengers in the year, operated at a 83% load factor, and continued our product unbundling strategy, growing our non-ticket revenues by 25%.

Volaris CEO Enrique Beltranena commented: "Our long term growth opportunity is unprecedented and based on Mexico's bright future – but there are near term challenges to the fare environment because of the combination of a slower economy in general with a rapid growth in the air travel market. 'The Volaris Ultra-Low-Cost Carrier Model' was developed with both our long term opportunity and Mexico's short term volatility in mind; it competes most successfully in this environment, creating sustainable value even in difficult periods, while we continue to build our market in Mexico and the US."

Macro Factors Impact Results While Volaris Builds its Market and Improves Operations

  • Second Half and Fourth Quarter Macro Factors

    • Slower Mexican economic growth: During the fourth quarter Mexico continued to experience a slow economic environment. The GDP growth estimates for the full year were revised downward each month during the second half of the year, going from 1.8% in August to an actual of 1.1%. Other economic indicators such as consumer confidence decreased 6.4% in the fourth quarter year over year; the Mexican General Economic Activity Indicator (IGAE) average was 0.8% in the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to 3.4% in the fourth quarter of 2012, and same store sales from the National Association of Supermarkets and Department Stores (ANTAD) was only 0.3% in the fourth quarter.
    • Slower passenger market demand reaction: Slower economic growth meant passenger market demand was weak despite a lower fare environment, and as a result our load factor decreased 1.7 pp in the fourth quarter.
    • Non-ticket revenue expansion: Our non-ticket revenue strategy continues to build, in October we amended our baggage policy and in December we initiated on board food and beverage sales.
    • Exchange rate depreciation: The Mexican peso depreciated 0.7% year over year against the US dollar, as the exchange rate devalued from an average of Ps.12.94 pesos per US dollar in the fourth quarter of 2012 to Ps.13.03 pesos per US dollar during the fourth quarter of 2013.
    • Fuel costs decreased: The average economic fuel cost per gallon decreased 3.2% year over year in the fourth quarter of 2013. In addition CASM excluding fuel decreased 7.3% in the fourth quarter of 2013.
  • Building the Mexican ULCC Market in 2013

    • Air traffic volume increases: Among Mexican carriers, Volaris generated 43% of the passenger volume growth in 2013 and increased market share to 23% in both domestic and international markets, effectively becoming the second largest operator among Mexican carriers, according to the Mexican DGAC (Direccion General de Aeronautica Civil). The DGAC reported an overall passenger increase for the Mexican carriers of 10% for the same period.
    • New routes and operations: During the fourth quarter, Volaris launched 14 new routes, 11 domestic and three international, and started operations to Phoenix, San Antonio and Chicago-O´Hare in the US. Total departures increased 16.0% year over year.
    • Successful bus switching initiatives: Volaris continues to launch concrete initiatives that target bus passengers through actions in product and network, revenue management, distribution and payment with strategic partners, and through marketing and communication efforts.
    • Increase in Mexico City airport slots: Through the process managed by the Mexican DGAC and the Mexico City airport authorities, Volaris has been able to achieve a 9.3% increase in weekly slots compared to Winter 2012/2013.
    • New Monterrey base: Volaris announced the opening of a new base in the city of Monterrey, Nuevo Leon. Eight new destinations will be served to reach a total of 11 destinations throughout Mexico. New direct non-stop flights will now be available from Monterrey to Chihuahua, Ciudad Juarez, Culiacan, Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos, Veracruz, Merida, and Cancun.
    • Incisive capacity management: During the first quarter we are carefully managing capacity closely observing the economic recovery. As a result, we expect to decrease capacity in the first quarter of 2014 compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. However this will still represent a capacity increase in the first quarter year over year.

2013 Operating Revenue: Growth Despite Macro Headwinds/Key-Market Price Competition

For the fourth quarter and full year 2013, Volaris' total operating revenue was Ps.3,184 million and Ps.13,002 million, respectively, which represented a decrease of 1.1% and an increase of 11.3% year over year in the same periods, respectively.

Volaris booked 2.3 and 8.9 million passengers in the fourth quarter and full year 2013, respectively. This equates to an 18.9% and 20.7% growth rate in the fourth quarter and full year of 2012, respectively. This increase in passengers was a result of building our market by targeting passengers who travel by bus and by offering lower base fares, which were lowered 16.7% and 9.5% year over year in the fourth quarter and full year of 2012, respectively.

As compared to the fourth quarter and full year 2012, passenger revenue per available seat mile (RASM) was 16.6% and 7.3% lower, and total operating revenue per available seat mile (TRASM) was 16.7% and 5.6% lower, respectively, resulting from our lower fare structure combined with a slower economic environment and an increase in the domestic competitive market that put additional pressure on our base fares in certain key markets.

Volaris traffic, measured in terms of revenue passenger miles (RPMs), increased 16.2% and 17.4% year over year in the fourth quarter and full year 2013 respectively. Volaris added three net new aircraft to its fleet in 2013.

During the fourth quarter and full year, our non-ticket revenue reached Ps.452 and Ps.1,885 million, respectively.

Continued Cost Discipline Strengthens "Lowest Cost Operator in the Americas" Position

CASM for the fourth quarter and full year 2013 were Ps.114.8 and Ps.116.4 cents, a 6.7% and 4.9% reduction compared to the fourth quarter and full year of 2012, respectively, primarily driven by efficiency benefits and sustained cost control discipline. CASM excluding fuel also decreased 7.3% and 2.0% year over year in the fourth quarter and full year 2013. We remain the lowest CASM operator in the Americas.

Reflecting our strategy to further reduce our unit cost, Volaris has continued to take deliveries of larger A320 aircraft, bringing our mix of A320/A319 to a 55/45 percent split. We further reduced sales, marketing and distribution expenses mainly due to our reservations system change. Also, maintenance expenses were reduced due to better maintenance planning and execution.

As a result of the Mexican fiscal reform, the airlines operating in Mexico obtained a special CO2 tax (IEPS) waiver that was supposed to be implemented January 1, 2014.

Strong Balance Sheet and Liquidity Supports Expansion Plans for 2014 and Beyond

As of December 31, 2013, Volaris had Ps.2,451 million in unrestricted cash and cash equivalents. The Company recorded negative net debt (or a positive net cash position) of Ps.1,888 million and total equity reached Ps.3,962 million.

During the fourth quarter 2013, Volaris incurred capital expenditures of Ps.287.7 million. The Company paid Ps.249.4 million in pre-delivery payments for future deliveries of aircraft net of refunds, and recorded additional purchases of rotable spare parts, furniture and equipment totaling Ps.38.3 million.

Young and Fuel Efficient Fleet Underpins Long Term Growth/Increasing Cost Efficiency

As of December 31, 2013, the Company´s fleet was comprised of 44 aircraft (24 Airbus A320 and 20 Airbus A319), with an average age of 4.2 years. During the fourth quarter of 2013 Volaris received two new Airbus A320 aircraft equipped with sharklets. Additionally we have started planning for a retrofit program with our A320's to further increase density from 174 to 179 seats, in order to further reduce our unit costs by approximately 2.7%.

On February 13, 2014 Volaris executed operating leases with a leading aircraft lessor for 16 aircraft, comprised of ten new A320neo and six new A321neo, driving fleet growth while significantly enhancing efficiency and more seats per aircraft. These NEO aircraft, powered by Pratt Whitney's PW1100G engines, will be delivered between 2016 and 2018. These 16 aircraft together with the existing orders underpin the Volaris growth strategy by having a young, efficient and uniform fleet. Early delivery of next generation, fuel efficient Airbus A320neo and A321neo will allow us to maximize the use of airport slots in key markets and continue to further reduce our operating costs. According to the aircraft manufacturer, Airbus S.A.S., the A321neo provides a reduction of approximately 18% in operating cost per seat versus the existing A320 with sharklets in Volaris' high density configuration.

Investors are urged to read carefully the Company's periodic reports filed with or furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission, for additional information regarding the Company.

Conference Call/Webcast Details:
Volaris will conduct a conference call to discuss these results tomorrow, February 26, 2014, at 10:00 a.m. ET. A live audio webcast of the conference call will be available to the public on a listen-only basis at http://ir.volaris.com
