GOL - Notice to the Market
SAO PAULO, April 28, 2014
SAO PAULO, April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes S.A.
(BM&FBOVESPA: GOLL4 and NYSE: GOL), (S&P: B, Fitch: B-, Moody's: B3), the
largest low-cost and low-fare airline in Latin America, in light of
information included in its annual report on Form 20-F, as filed with the
Securities and Exchange Comission - SEC today, hereby informs that the
Venezuelan government announced new levels of exchange rates applicable to
certain industries, including the airline industry, to be effective in 2014.
The exchange rate for foreign airlines ceased to be the CADIVI (Comision de
Administracion de Divisas) exchange rate, which was VEF 6.30 per US$ 1.00 as
of February 13, 2013, and is now set at weekly auctions known as SICAD
(Sistema Complementario de Administracion de Divisas), at VEF 10.70 per US$
1.00 as of March 31, 2014. Although the Venezuelan government has assured the
general public that such exchange rates will not apply to cash held in
Venezuela prior to the resolution setting forth the new exchange rate levels,
we cannot anticipate whether we will be able to timely transfer, in an
economically viable manner, cash currently held in Venezuela. As of March 31,
2014, we had R$350.3 million in cash held in Venezuela. In light of the
devaluation of the Venezuelan currency since December 31, 2013, we will
record, as of March 31, 2014, a R$75.9 million impairment in connection with
these funds, which will affect the financial result, with no impact on the
operating result. Notwithstanding this uncertain scenario in Venezuela, we
intend to repatriate the remaining balance.
