SÃO PAULO, July 13, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- GOL Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes S.A. (NYSE: GOL e B3: GOLL4) ("GOL" or "Company"), Brazil's largest domestic airline, today provides an Investor Update on its expectations for the second quarter of 2023. The information below is preliminary and unaudited. The Company will discuss its 2Q23 results in a conference call on July 27, 2023.

Overall Commentary

  • GOL expects Loss Per Share (EPS) and Loss Per American Depositary Share (EPADS) for 2Q23 of approximately R$1.051 and US$0.451, respectively.
  • EBITDA margin for the quarter is expected to be approximately 21%.
  • Passenger unit revenue (PRASK) for the second quarter is expected to be up approximately 9% year over year, driven by an 8% decrease in capacity versus the last quarter. Total unit revenue (RASK) increased by approximately 12% compared to the same period of 2022, mainly due to increases in revenues from cargo (Gollog), that more than doubled its revenue over 2Q22, and loyalty (Smiles), that recorded a revenue increase of 30% in the same period.
  • Non-fuel unit costs excluding freighter operations (CASK Ex-Fuel Adjusted3) are expected to be flat compared to 2Q22, primarily due to higher expenses related to parts and costs associated with redelivery of aircraft, compensated by the year-over-year increase in capacity (ASK) of 14%. Fuel unit costs (CASK Fuel) decreased approximately 18% compared to 2Q22, mainly due to a 19% decrease in the average jet fuel price, partially compensated by a reduction in average stage length, and total unit costs are expected to decrease approximately 7% compared to the second quarter of 2022.
  • Financial leverage as measured by the Net Debt4/LTM EBITDA2 ratio was approximately 7.2x at quarter end, a reduction of 2.2x compared to 4Q22 (~5.3x in IFRS-16). Excluding the GOL SSN, the ratio was 6.0x (4.0x in IFRS-16). Total liquidity at quarter-end is expected to be at R$ 4.1 billion5.
