LATAM AIRLINES REPORTS $1,729 MILLION GOODWILL IMPAIRMENT LOSS AND IMPROVES OPERATING RESULTS BY 17%

 

Santiago, Chile, May 29, 2020 – LATAM Airlines Group S.A. (NYSE: LTM; IPSA: LTM), announced today its consolidated financial results for the first quarter ending March 31, 2020. “LATAM” or “the Company” makes reference to the consolidated entity, which includes passenger and cargo airlines in Latin America. All figures were prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), including the recent adoption of IFRS16 accounting standard, and are expressed in U.S. dollars. The Brazilian real / US dollar average exchange rate for the quarter was BRL 4.46 per USD.

 

Highlights

 

· Total revenues decreased 6.8% year-on-year in the first quarter of 2020 to US$2,352.3 million due to a reduction in operations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic effect during March. Passenger revenue declined 7.1%, mainly as a result of the 6.6% capacity reduction, while cargo revenues decreased 4.2% as cargo unit revenue declined 3.2% year-over-year, together with a cargo capacity reduction of 1.1% year-over-year.

 

· Total operating expenses declined 7.6% year-over-year in the quarter as a result of fewer operations, devaluation of local currencies and lower fuel prices. Cost per ASK fell 1.2%, while Cost per ASK excluding fuel increased 1.2% due to the sharp decline in ASK during March.

 

· As a result, operating income amounted to US$95.9 million in the first quarter of 2020, an increase of 17% compared to the first quarter last year. Operating margin reached 4.1%, an increase of 0.8 p.p. over last year. Net result amounted to a US$2,120.2 million loss, mainly due to a goodwill impairment loss of US$1,729 million as a result of the effects of the coronavirus crisis.

 

· On May 26, 2020, LATAM Airlines Group and its affiliates in Chile, Peru, Colombia and Ecuador initiated a voluntary reorganization and restructuring of their debt under Chapter 11 protection in the United States. In light of the effects of COVID-19 on the worldwide aviation industry, this reorganization process provides LATAM with an opportunity to work with the group’s creditors and other stakeholders to reduce its debt, access new sources of financing and continue operating, while enabling the group to transform its business to this new reality.
·
· The group has obtained financing commitment from shareholders, including the Cueto and Amaro families, and Qatar Airways, to provide up to $900 million in debtor-in-possession (DIP) financing, which availability will be subject to the negotiation of the definitive agreements and for them to be approved as debtor in possession financing under the Chapter 11 proceeding. To the extent permitted by law, the group would welcome other shareholders interested in participating in this process to provide additional financing.

 

· On May 20, 2020, LATAM and its affiliates announced that they will gradually increase their international and domestic operations during June and July, offering passengers more flexible options, lower fares and increased sanitary measures. In June, the LATAM group expects to increase its total pre-crisis capacity from 5% to 9%, while preparing to reach 18% in July.

 

· LATAM Cargo and its affiliates, whose operations have not been limited in the same way as passenger operations by travel restrictions, have bolstered their capacity to support import-exports and the transport of medical supplies as well as other essential goods. Capacity changes include a 40% increase between South America and Europe, a 15% growth between South America and Miami, and new cargo destinations to Mexico City and Los Angeles. For the first time in its history, the Company launched cargo operations to China to bring medical supplies to the region that will help to contain the spread of the COVID-19.

· Finally, at the Ordinary Shareholders Meeting, a new Board of Directors was elected, which is now composed by Mr. Ignacio Cueto, Mr. Enrique Cueto, Mr. Giles Agutter, Ms. Sonia Villalobos, Mr. Patrick Horn, Mr. Nicolas Eblen, Mr. Henri Philippe Reichstul, Mr. Eduardo Novoa and Mr. Enrique Ostalé.

 

MANAGEMENT COMMENTS ON THE FIRST QUARTER 2020

 

The first quarter results reflect LATAM’s healthy performance prior to the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, as demonstrated by the operational results, lower costs and solid liability management" said Roberto Alvo, CEO of LATAM Airlines Group.

 

COVID-19 has had an unprecedented effect on airlines around the world and LATAM is no exception. We entered the pandemic as a healthy and profitable airline group – yet like airlines throughout the world, we are subject to exceptional circumstances that have led to a collapse in demand and we are currently operating approximately 5% of our flights.

 

We are convinced that the Chapter 11 is the best path forward to minimize disruptions to the business and protect the interests of stakeholders. The Chapter 11 proceeding is markedly different from the concept of liquidation, “quiebra” or “bancarrota” as understood in many other jurisdictions outside of the United States. Rather, it is a legal framework under which LATAM and its subsidiaries will continue operating, paying their employees, meeting benefit obligations, and paying critical suppliers, while we reorganize our balance sheet so that we are prepared to emerge as a more agile, strengthened, and sustainable airline group for the future.

 

LATAM and its affiliates would like to thank its shareholders, employees, creditors and the communities it serves for their support to help secure the group’s long-term future. The group is confident that this process will bring together these diverse stakeholders to build a new LATAM that is better placed to succeed for years to come.

 

management discussion and analysis of FIRST Quarter 2020 Results

 

Total revenues in the first quarter 2020 totaled US$2,352.3 million, compared to US$2,525.3 million in first quarter 2019. The 6.8% decrease was composed by a 7.1% decrease in passenger revenues, 4.2% in cargo revenues and 8.1% in other revenues. Passenger and cargo revenues accounted for 85.6% and 10.7% of the total operating revenue of the quarter, respectively.

 

Passenger revenues decreased 7.1% year-over-year in the first quarter as a result of a 6.6% year-over-year capacity decline together with a 0.6% year-over-year decline in consolidated passenger unit revenue (RASK). The passenger RASK decline was driven by a 3.1 p.p. reduction of the load factor, partially offset by a 3.3% growth of passenger yield. Decline in load factor was explained by countries’ border closures, travel restrictions and lower demand due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

Revenues per ASK for LATAM’s main passenger business units are shown in the table below:

 

  For the three month period ended March 31
  RASK   ASK   Load Factor
  (US cents)   (millions)    
  1Q20 % Change (YoY)   1Q20 % Change (YoY)   1Q20 % Change (YoY)
                 
Bussines Unit                
Domestic SSC 6.1 -5.7%   6,926 0.2%   79.9% -4.3 pp
Domestic Brazil 6.0 -2.5% * 10,553 12.5%   81.1% -1.0 pp
International 5.9 6.1%   17,986 -17.1%   81.6% -3.5 pp
Total 5.7 -0.6%   35,495 -6.6%   81.0% -3.1 pp

 

*RASK in domestic Brazil  increased 10.7% measured in BRL.

Note: revenues include ticket revenue, breakage, ancillary, frequent flyer program revenues and other revenues.

 

The domestic operations of LATAM Airlines group’s Spanish speaking country affiliates (SSC) –which include LATAM Airlines Chile, LATAM Airlines Peru, LATAM Airlines Argentina, LATAM Airlines Colombia and LATAM Airlines Ecuador– accounted for 20.0% of total passenger revenue in the quarter. Their consolidated capacity increased 0.2% year-over-year, while traffic measured in RPK fell 4.8% as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, consolidated load factor declined 4.3 percentage points to 79.9%. Revenue per ASK in USD decreased 5.7% in the quarter, impacted by the depreciation of local currencies and the decline in demand due to the COVID-19 crisis.

 

In Brazil’s domestic passenger operation – which represented 30.1% of total passenger revenues in the quarter – LATAM Airlines Brazil increased its domestic capacity by 12.5% year-over-year, while traffic measured in RPK increased 11.1% in the same period, thus resulting in a 1.0 percentage points decline in load factor to 81.1%. Revenues per ASK decreased 2.5% year-over-year in USD as a result of the devaluation of the Brazilian real, as in local currency revenues per ASK increased by 10.7% year-over-year.

 

International passenger operations accounted for 49.9% of total passenger revenues. Consolidated capacity decreased 17.1% year-over-year in the quarter, while international traffic fell 20.5%. As a result, passenger load factor declined by 3.5 percentage points to 81.6%. Consolidated RASK improved 6.1%, mainly driven by capacity adjustments made in 2019.

 

Cargo revenues decreased by 4.2% in the quarter, reaching US$252.4 million, despite the cargo yield growth of 3.4% year-over-year. Cargo capacity and traffic declined 1.1% and 7.4% respectively, resulting in a 3.6 p.p. reduction of the cargo load factor. As a result, cargo revenues per ATK declined by 3.2% in comparison to the same quarter of the previous year. Unit revenues in import markets continued to be under pressure mainly due to the weak demand from Brazil and Argentina as a result of the currency devaluation.

 

Other revenues totaled US$86.2 million in the first quarter of 2020, US$7.6 million less compared to the same period of last year mainly due to the acquisition and subsequent merger of Multiplus with LATAM Airlines Brazil in May 2019. Excluding Multiplus, other revenues would have grown 20.4% or US$14.6 million mainly due to the sale of one Boeing 767-300 and two more aircraft under sublease agreements compared to first quarter 2019.

 

Total operating expenses in the first quarter amounted to US$2,256.4 million, a 7.6% decrease compared to the same period of 2019 mainly driven by a 6.6% decline in ASK, devaluation of currencies and lower fuel prices. Cost per ASK fell by 1.2% and Cost per ASK excluding fuel costs increased by 1.2% in the same period. Changes in operating expenses were mainly explained by:

 

· Wages and benefits decreased 14.7%, explained mainly by the depreciation of local currencies.

· Fuel costs fell 12.6%, mainly as a result of an 11.1% reduction of fuel consumption, especially during March, along with a 2.6% decrease in the average fuel price per gallon (excluding hedge) as compared to the first quarter of 2019. The Company recognized a US$13.6 million loss related to hedging contracts for the quarter, compared to US$9.0 million loss for the same quarter of 2019.
   
· Commissions to agents increased by US$2.1 million or 3.8% due to an increase of 5.3% in the cargo tons carried during the quarter, compared to the same quarter of 2019.
   
· Depreciation and amortization rose 9% due to 19 more aircraft in average in our fleet compared to the same period of 2019.
   
· Other rental and landing fees declined 11.7%, mainly due to fewer passenger and cargo operations and the devaluation of local currencies.
   
· Passenger service expenses declined by 21.4% due to lower catering and on-board services during first quarter 2020, especially during March.
   
· Maintenance expenses fell by 9.8% due to lower redelivery costs and lower operations during the quarter.
   
· Other operating expenses increased by US$5.4 million in the first quarter mainly due to a US$14.1 million non-recurrent provision over maintenance inventories. Excluding this non-recurrent effect, other operating expenses would have declined by 2.7%, in line with the decline in the passengers carried in the first quarter as a result of the reductions of passenger capacity during March.

 

Non-operating results

 

· Interest income increased by US$1.2 million year-over-year to US$7.1 million in first quarter 2020, mainly due to credits associated with PIS/COFINS tax payments that resulted from the reduction in the SELIC interest rate in Brazil in the first quarter of 2020.
   
· Interest expense fell by US$11.1 million to US$127.4 million in first quarter 2020, mainly due to a lower interest rate and a decrease in total financial debt compared to first quarter 2019
   
· Under Other income (expense), the Company registered a US$1,896.5 million net loss, explained by US$1,729 million impairment adjustments of Goodwill. The industry situation generated by the COVID-19 justified to perform an impairment test for several assets of the Company. In addition, the Company recognized an US$73 million anticipated loss related to fuel hedges, including the associated premiums paid to contract the hedges.

 

Net loss in the first quarter amounted to US$2,120.2 million mainly explained by the impairment adjustment of the Goodwill.

 

LIQUIDITY AND FINANCING

 

At the end of the quarter, LATAM´s financial debt amounted to US$7.6 billion, a US$385 million increase compared to previous quarter as a result of the US$505 million drawing of the RCF in March 2020. However, leverage remained stable at 4.0x from December 2019.

 

At the end of the first quarter 2020, LATAM reported US$1,662 million in cash and cash equivalents, including certain highly liquid investments accounted as other current financial assets. As of March 2020, the company drew down US$505 million of the US$600 million of the RCF, while the balance of US$95 million was drawn during April. Thus LATAM’s liquidity position amounted to 17.1% of the last twelve months’ net revenue by March 31, 2020.

Given current fuel prices, the company recognized an anticipated loss of US$73 million related to hedge fuel positions that the Company has for the rest of 2020. This amount assumes that the company would have hedge losses in the future and includes the result of the position and the premiums paid to contract the hedges.

 

LATAM FLEET PLAN

 

Given the filing for voluntary reorganization and restructuring of their debt under Chapter 11 protection in the United State, LATAM is currently evaluating the adequate fleet needs for the following years.

 

CONFERENCE CALL

 

Given the filing for voluntary reorganization and restructuring of their debt under Chapter 11 protection in the United States, the Company has decided to cancel the conference call scheduled for June 1, 2020, at 10:00 AM EST.
