Resilient Macroeconomics and Domestic Consumer Demand, Peso Appreciation and Fuel Price Pressures

  • Exchange rate volatility: The Mexican peso appreciated 1.3% year over year against the US dollar, from an average exchange rate of Ps.19.37 pesos per US dollar in the second quarter 2018 to Ps.19.12 pesos per US dollar during the second quarter 2019. At the end of the second quarter 2019, the Mexican peso appreciated 1.1% with respect to the exchange rate of the end of the previous quarter. The Company booked a foreign exchange gain of Ps.3 million as a consequence of our US dollar net monetary liability position, resulting from the adoption of IFRS16.
  • Higher fuel prices: The average economic fuel cost per gallon increased 8.0% in the second quarter of 2019, year over year, reaching Ps.48.9 per gallon (US$2.6).

Passenger Traffic Stimulation, Further Ancillary Revenue Expansion, and Positive TRASM Growth

  • New routes: Volaris began operations in five new domestic routes from Chihuahua, Durango and Queretaro and four new international routes from Chicago, Dallas and Phoenix. 

The Cost Control Discipline and peso appreciation Offset Fuel Price Pressure

  • CASM and CASM ex fuel for the second quarter 2019 reached Ps.124.9 (US$6.5 cents) and Ps.74.5 cents (US$3.9 cents), respectively. This represented decreases of 1.2% and 4.6%, respectively; mainly driven by a tighter cost control discipline and the average exchange rate appreciation of 1.3%; despite the average economic fuel cost per gallon rising 8.0%.

Young and Fuel-efficient Fleet

  • During the second quarter 2019, the Company incorporated two aircraft (A320 neo) to its fleet; also during this quarter two redeliveries were registered (A320 ceo). As of June 30, 2019, Volaris' fleet was composed of 78 aircraft (8 A319s, 55 A320s and 15 A321s), with an average age of 4.8 years. At the end of the second quarter 2019, Volaris' fleet had an average of 186 seats, 76% of which were in sharklet-equipped aircraft, and 24% were NEO.

Solid Balance Sheet and Good Liquidity

  • Net cash flows provided by operating activities and investing activities were Ps.1,527 million and Ps.171 million, respectively. The cash flow used in financing activities was Ps.571 million, which included Ps.1,582 million of aircraft rental payments, and inflows of Ps.1,500 million, related to the issuance of asset backed trust notes (certificados bursátiles fiduciarios).The negative net foreign exchange difference was Ps.74 million, while the net cash generation in the second quarter was Ps.1,053 million.

Volaris registered a negative net debt (or a positive net cash position) of Ps.4,050 million (excluding lease liability recognized under the IFRS16 adoption) and total equity of Ps.4,095 million.

Transition to IFRS 16

  • The Company adopted IFRS 16 as of January 1st, 2019, using the full retrospective method. The cumulative effect of adopting IFRS 16 has been recognized as an adjustment to the opening balance as of January 1st, 2017 as an increase in assets and liabilities and an adjustment in the retained earnings. The full disclosure and the estimated unaudited figures of this initial adoption are included in the Company´s 2018 annual report.
  • This quarterly earnings release includes supplemental information for comparable purposes, with recast, estimated unaudited 2018 figures with the IFRS 16 adoption effects. These figures were derived from unaudited financial statements included in the quarterly reports on Form 6-K reported during the year ended as of December 31, 2018.
  • Starting on March 25, 2019, the Company established a hedge on its USD denominated revenues, through a non-derivative financial instrument, using the lease liabilities denominated in USD as a hedge instrument. This hedging relationship is designated as a cash flow hedge of forecasted revenues to mitigate the volatility of the foreign exchange variation arising from the revaluation of its lease liabilities. The non-material impact of this hedge resulting from the second quarter 2019, has been presented as part of the total operating revenue.
  • Additionally, on the same date, the Company established a hedge on a portion of its forecasted fuel expense, through a non-derivative financial instrument, using as hedge instrument a portion of its USD denominated monetary assets. This hedging relationship is designated as a cash flow hedge of forecasted fuel expense to mitigate the volatility of the foreign exchange variation arising from the revaluation of this portion of USD denominated monetary asset. The non-material impact of this hedge, resulting from the second quarter 2019, has been presented as part of the total fuel expense. 

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