Austrian Airlines AG Key Developments

Austrian Airlines AG Announces Financial Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months and Operating Results for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2017; Provides Earnings Guidance Results for the 2017

Austrian Airlines AG announced financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2017. For the quarter, the company reported revenue for Austrian Airlines: revenue increased by 9% compared to the 2016 summer quarter. Expenditure rose by 8%, and revenue by 10%. The EBIT increased from EUR 82 million to EUR 98 million. The adjusted EBIT went from EUR 80 million in the third quarter of 2016 to EUR 96 million in 2017. For the nine months, the company reported increase its adjusted earnings before interest and taxes (adjusted EBIT) by 27% to EUR 100 million, compared to the same period of the previous year. This improvement in earnings was a result of the company's business within Austria, strong business on routes between Germany and Austria, and in the long-haul segment, the continuing positive trend in North Atlantic flights. As at the end of September 2017, the airline transported 14% more people, with just below ten million passengers carried. In the same period, total operating revenue was raised by 9%, or EUR 156 million, to EUR 1,904 million (2016: EUR 1,748 million). Essential revenue drivers were increased demand in Austria, the expansion of business on routes between Germany and Austria, and a continuing positive trend in flights across the North Atlantic. As a result, the company posted a three-figure EBIT for the first time, of EUR 106 million. The EBIT for the same period last year was EUR 84 million, representing an increase of 26%. The adjusted EBIT, the indicator relevant for the forecast, which deducts valuation gains from aircraft sales amongst other things, was EUR 100 million after three quarters, up by EUR 21 million, or 27%, on the comparison period in 2016. Revenue at the end of Third Quarter 2017 was EUR 1,814 million, 11% higher than on September 30, 2016. For the nine months, the company carried some 9.8 million passengers in the period from January to September 2017. This represents a rise of 14%. The main reason for the strong increase is the expansion in flights between Germany and Austria, and the use of five additional aircraft "operated by airberlin". Capacity, expressed in Available Seat Kilometres (ASK), rose by 8%. Despite the increased supply, capacity utilisation also improved, rising by 0.4% points to reach 77.4%. The figure for punctuality on departure was 4.0% down on last year, unfortunately, at 83.2%, considerably below the level of punctuality usual for Austrian Airlines. The main reason for this were the freak weather conditions at the Vienna hub. With the stabilisation in flight operations, regularity of operations rose slightly once again, going up by 0.3% points to 98.8% (2016: 98.5%). For the fiscal year 2017, result expected to be higher than previous year. The Adjusted EBIT for the 2016 financial year overall was EUR 58 million.
