“Second quarter diluted earnings per share, excluding special items was $4.35, a more than six-fold improvement over the second quarter of 2022,” stated John Redmond, CEO of Allegiant Travel Company. “These outstanding results are attributable to the hard work of our team members during this peak summer travel period. The team delivered industry-leading operational performance with a controllable completion of 99.7 percent for the quarter.

“We recognized a record $684 million in total operating revenue for the second quarter, evidence of a robust leisure demand environment. Capacity increased slightly, up 1.3 percent year-over-year, with TRASM increasing 7.5 percent over the second quarter of 2022.  During the second quarter, total ancillary per passenger was $71.75, an 8.6 percent increase over the prior year. This strength is driven by early success with the Allegiant Extra product and sustained growth with our Allegiant Allways cobrand credit card. Our direct-to-consumer approach helps underpin our ability to enhance revenues.

“As we head into the second half of the year, our focus remains on three primary objectives. First, we will make progress on outstanding labor contracts that our team members are proud to support. Second, we will continue delivering a solid operation. Finally, we are only a few short months from the long awaited opening of our world-class, Sunseeker Resort, in Port Charlotte, Florida. Construction is entering the final stages, and the operations teams are beginning to hire personnel in earnest. We remain on track to open the property mid-October.

“I could not be happier with the success the team delivered this quarter. Achieving industry-leading operational performance in the backdrop of a challenging operational environment is admirable. This operational success has been the catalyst for the strong financial performance delivered year-to-date.”

The Company’s unvested restricted stock awards are considered participating securities as they receive non-forfeitable rights to cash dividends at the same rate as common stock. The Basic and Diluted earnings per share calculations for the periods presented reflect the two-class method mandated by ASC Topic 260, “Earnings Per Share.” The two-class method adjusts both the net income and the shares used in the calculation. Application of the two-class method did not have a significant impact on the Basic and Diluted earnings per share for the periods presented.

Appendix A
Non-GAAP Presentation
Three and Six Months Ended June 30, 2023
(Unaudited)

Airline operating revenue, airline operating expense, airline operating income, airline income before income taxes, airline net income, and airline diluted earnings per share all eliminate the effects of non-airline activity, which is not reflective of airline operating performance. Airline earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“Airline EBITDA”) eliminates the effects of non-airline operating activity and other items. As such, all of these are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe the presentation of these measures is relevant and useful for investors because it allows them to better gauge the performance of the airline and to compare our results to other airlines.

We present operating expense and CASM excluding aircraft fuel expense as fuel price volatility impacts the comparability of year over year financial performance. We believe the adjustment for fuel expense allows investors to better understand our non-fuel costs and related performance.

We present consolidated operating income, EBITDA, and diluted earnings per share excluding Sunseeker special charges and recoveries to exclude the impact of losses and insurance recoveries incurred primarily as the result of Hurricane Ian. Management believes these measures enhance comparability of financial information between periods.

EBITDA and Airline-only EBITDA, as presented in this press release, are supplemental measures of our performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). These are not measurements of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity.

We define “EBITDA” as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We also adjust EBITDA within this release to exclude non-airline activity. We caution investors that amounts presented in accordance with this definition may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other issuers, because not all issuers and analysts calculate EBITDA in the same manner.

We use EBITDA and Airline EBITDA to evaluate our operating performance and liquidity, and these are among the primary measures used by management for planning and forecasting of future periods. We believe these presentations of EBITDA are relevant and useful for investors because they allow investors to view results in a manner similar to the method used by management and make it easier to compare our results with other companies that have different financing and capital structures. EBITDA has important limitations as an analytical tool. These limitations include the following:

  • EBITDA does not reflect our capital expenditures, future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments to purchase capital equipment;
  • EBITDA does not reflect interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service principal or interest payments on our debt;
  • although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets that we currently depreciate and amortize will likely have to be replaced in the future, and EBITDA does not reflect the cash required to fund such replacements; and
  • other companies in our industry may calculate EBITDA differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Presented below is a quantitative reconciliation of these adjusted numbers to the most directly comparable GAAP financial performance measure, which we believe is net income.

The SEC has adopted rules (Regulation G) regulating the use of non-GAAP financial measures. Because of our use of non-GAAP financial measures in this press release to supplement our consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Regulation G requires us to include in this press release a presentation of the most directly comparable GAAP measure, which is operating revenue, operating expenses, operating income, income before income taxes, net income, and net income per share and a reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measure. Our utilization of non-GAAP measurements is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating revenue, operating expenses, operating income, income before income taxes, net income, net income per share, or other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our use of these non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies in the airline and travel industry. The reconciliation of each of these measures to the most comparable GAAP measure for the periods is indicated below.
