Research Report On October 24, 2013, Southwest Airlines Co. (Southwest Airlines) released its Q3 2013 results. The Company posted Q3 2013 non-GAAP net income of $241 million or $0.34 per diluted share, up 148.5% YoY, in line with the First Call consensus estimate of $0.34 per diluted share. Meanwhile, GAAP net income stood at $259 million, or $0.37 per diluted share in Q3 2013, compared to net income of $16 million, or $.02 per diluted share in Q3 2012. Additionally, Southwest Airlines informed that it returned c.$178 million to shareholders during the quarter through the payment of $28 million in dividends and the repurchase of c.$150 million in common stock under an accelerated share repurchase program executed in September 2013. "Third quarter revenues were also a third quarter record, with total operating revenues per available seat mile (unit revenues) increasing 4.5 percent year-over-year. Especially considering our increase in stage length and seat density, this is a very strong performance. Further, we continue to have a high number of markets under development as we convert AirTran routes into Southwest routes and optimize our combined networks. Finally, about 15 percent of our system is still operating under the AirTran brand. As the network stabilizes in the future, AirTran becomes fully converted, and fewer schedule changes are made, this should provide a further boost to unit revenues," said Gary C. Kelly, Southwest Airlines' Chairman of the Board, President and CEO.
