PROPOSED NON-DISTRIBUTION OF DIVIDENDS

Further to the statement issued by Avianca Holdings S.A. (OTCUS: AVHOQ, BVC: PFAVH) (“Avianca Holdings” or the “Company”) on March 3, 2021, Avianca Holdings confirms that its management will propose that its General Shareholders’ Meeting to be held on March 26, 2021 vote not to distribute any dividends. The Company recorded a loss of US$1,094 million for 2020 due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on the airline industry.

As previously reported, on May 10, 2020 Avianca Holdings S.A. filed for Chapter 11 protection with the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York, and continues to operate as a debtor-in-possession.

As previously disclosed, on October 21, 2020, Avianca Holdings closed on a DIP (“debtor-in-Possession”) financing facility totaling approximately US$2.0 billion, including approximately US$1.2 billion in new money commitments as well as purchase consideration for certain assets and the refinancing of certain prepetition debt obligations. As of December 31, 2020, the Company held US$911 million in cash and equivalents; together with undrawn DIP financing commitments amounting to US$350 million, this represented a total liquidity position of US$1.261 billion as of the close of the year.
