Polar Air Cargo LLC Reaches Settlement Agreement in U.S. Cargo Antitrust Class Action

Polar Air Cargo LLC confirmed that it, along with Polar Air Cargo Worldwide, Inc. and Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc. has entered into a settlement agreement in a previously disclosed antitrust class action lawsuit in the United States. The industry-wide litigation arose from allegations about the pricing practices of a number of air cargo carriers on routes to and from the United States from January 2000 through September 2006. The settlement agreement resolves all claims against the Companies by participating members in the class action. The Companies continue to deny any wrongdoing or liability, and there is no admission of any wrongdoing or liability in the settlement agreement. Pursuant to the settlement agreement, Polar LLC has agreed to make installment payments over three years to settle the class action, with payments of $35 million due on or before January 15, 2016, $35 million on or before January 15, 2017, and $30 million on or before January 15, 2018. The payments are expected to be funded from cash available on hand. Atlas Air Worldwide expects to record an expense for the full amount of the Polar LLC settlement in the fourth quarter of 2015, which should total approximately $2.60 per diluted share on an after-tax basis. Excluding this impact, the settlement does not affect Atlas Air Worldwide’s previously issued adjusted earnings outlook for 2015, nor does the settlement affect other related litigation or the company’s ongoing business operations. The settlement agreement is subject to approval and acceptance by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York.
