Aeroports de Montreal Announces its Results for the Second Quarter of 2014

MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 07/31/14 -- Aeroports de Montreal (ADM) today announced its consolidated financial results for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2014. These results are accompanied by data on passenger traffic and aircraft movements at Montreal-Trudeau and Montreal-Mirabel international airports.

Highlights

Passenger traffic increased by 5.3% for the second quarter and by 3.0% for the half-year ended June 30, 2014, compared with the corresponding year-earlier periods.

EBITDA (excess of revenues over expenses before financial expenses, income taxes and depreciation) totalled $53.3 million for the second quarter of 2014, up $2.8 million, or 5.5%, over the same period of 2013. For the half-year ended June 30, EBITDA stood at $99.4 million, up $1.9 million, or 1.9%, over the corresponding six months a year ago.

The Corporation's capital investments totalled $36.0 million during the second quarter of 2014 and $62.6 million for the half-year. Work focused mainly on expansion of the international jetty. Investments in the airports are financed by cash flows from airport operations, including airport improvement fees (AIFs).

Results

Consolidated revenues amounted to $112.8 million for the second quarter of 2014, an increase of $4.7 million, or 4.3%, over the same period of 2013. Accumulated revenues as at June 30, 2014, rose by $5.9 million, or 2.7%, to $226.7 million for the first six months of 2014, compared with $220.8 million for the same period of 2013. This growth is attributable to the rise in passenger traffic, higher revenues from parking facilities as well as the annual increase in aeronautical fees.

Operating costs for the quarter under review totalled $38.5 million, up $0.9 million, or 2.4%, from the corresponding period of the previous year. Operating costs for the six months ended June 30, 2014, climbed by 3.4%, reaching $84.8 million in 2014, against $82.0 million for the first half of 2013. This variance is due, among other factors, to the rise in certain operating expenses, particularly energy costs, as well as statutory salary increases. These increases were however offset by the reduced use of de-icing products and AIF collection costs.

Depreciation amounted to $26.3 million for the second quarter, up $1.6 million, or 6.5%, over the same year-ago quarter. For the six months ended June 30, 2014, depreciation totalled $52.5 million, up $3.4 million, or 6.8%, from the corresponding half-year of 2013. The main reason for this rise was the commissioning of projects completed in 2013.

The quarter ended June 30, 2014, generated an excess of revenues over expenses of $4.0 million, compared with an excess of $3.2 million for the same quarter of 2013. The excess of revenues over expenses for the half-year ended June 30, 2014, was $0.8 million, against an excess of $4.4 million for the corresponding year-ago period.

EBITDA is a financial measurement that is not recognized by IFRS and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other corporations. EBITDA is meant to provide additional information and should not be considered as a substitute for other performance measurements prepared in accordance with IFRS. EBITDA is used by management as an indicator to evaluate ongoing operational performance.

EBITDA is defined by the Corporation as excess of revenues over expenses before financial expenses, income taxes and depreciation. Calculation of EBITDA takes into account certain financial expenses included in operating costs (net of certain interest income included in revenues), which total $0.4 million for the second quarter ($0.3 million in 2013) and $1.1 million for the half-year ($0.9 million in 2013).
