  • Gross cash was €4.64 billion as of June 30, 2022, and net debt was €0.40 billion.
  • Following a recent review of B737NG op. lease opportunities and Boeing Co's BA failure to agree on competitive pricing on a new aircraft order, Ryanair decided instead to extend most of its Lauda A320 leases.
  • Ryanair plans to grow FY23 traffic to 165 million (+11% on pre-COVID traffic) and will pursue its load active, yield passive strategy to achieve this growth.
  • Price Action: RYAAY shares are trading higher by 3.56% at $73.50 during the market session on Monday.
