"Our second quarter performance reflects our continued position as the carrier of choice for Hawai'i," said Peter Ingram, Hawaiian Airlines president and CEO.  "The Hawaiian team showed their mettle yet again, producing solid financial and operational results in a quarter marked by rising fuel prices, elevated industry capacity, and headline-grabbing volcanic activity on the Big Island of Hawai'i.  We generated more revenue and carried more guests than in any second quarter in our history by executing our plan and running a safe and reliable airline.  I couldn't be more proud of my colleagues."

Statistical information, as well as a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures, can be found in the accompanying tables.

Hawaiian Holdings, Inc.
Economic Fuel Expense (unaudited)

The Company believes that economic fuel expense is a good measure of the effect of fuel prices on its business as it most closely approximates the net cash outflow associated with the purchase of fuel for its operations in a period. The Company defines economic fuel expense as GAAP fuel expense plus losses/(gains) realized through actual cash (receipts)/payments received from or paid to hedge counterparties for fuel hedge derivative contracts settled during the period.

Non-GAAP Financial Reconciliation (unaudited)

The Company evaluates its financial performance utilizing various GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures, including net income, diluted net income per share, CASM, PRASM, RASM, Passenger Revenue per RPM and EBITDAR.  Pursuant to Regulation G, the Company has included the following reconciliation of reported non-GAAP financial measures to comparable financial measures reported on a GAAP basis.  The adjustments are described below:

  • Changes in fair value of derivative contracts, net of tax, are based on market prices for open contracts as of the end of the reporting period. This line item includes the unrealized amounts of fuel derivatives (not designated as hedges) that will settle in future periods and the reversal of prior period unrealized amounts.
  • Unrealized loss (gain) on foreign debt is based on fluctuations in foreign exchange rates related to foreign-denominated debt agreements the Company executed during the three months ended June 30, 2018.
  • The Company believes that excluding the impact of these derivative adjustments and fluctuations in foreign exchange rates helps investors analyze the Company's operational performance and compare its results to other airlines in the periods presented.

2018 contract terminations expense

  • During the three months ended March 31, 2018, the Company terminated two contracts which resulted in a $35.3 million contract terminations expense.  In February 2018, the Company exercised its right to terminate its purchase agreement with Airbus for six Airbus A330-800neo aircraft and the purchase rights for an additional six Airbus A330-800neo aircraft.  The Company recorded a contract terminations expense to reflect a portion of the termination penalty.  In January 2018, the Company entered into a transaction with its lessor to early terminate and purchase three Boeing 767-300 aircraft leases and concurrently entered into a forward sale agreement for the same three Boeing 767-300 aircraft, including two Pratt & Whitney 4060 engines for each aircraft.  These aircraft were previously accounted for as operating leases.  In order to exit the leases and purchase the aircraft, the Company agreed to pay a total of $67.1 million (net of all deposits) of which a portion was expensed immediately and recognized as a lease termination fee.  The expensed amount represents the total purchase price over fair value of the aircraft purchased as of the date of the transaction.

2017 special items

  • During the three months ended June 30, 2017, the Company executed a sale leaseback transaction with an independent third party for three Boeing 767-300 aircraft as part of the Company's planned exit from its 767 fleet. During the three months ended June 30, 2017, the Company recorded a loss on sale of such aircraft of $4.8 million.
  • During the three months ended March 31, 2017, the Company accrued $18.7 million related to (1) a one-time payment to reduce the future 401k employer contribution for certain pilot groups, and (2) a one-time true up of the pilot vacation accrual at the new negotiated contract rates.

Leverage ratio

The Company uses adjusted total debt, including aircraft rent, in addition to long-term adjusted debt and capital leases, to represent long-term financial obligations.  The Company excludes unrealized (gains) losses from fuel derivative contracts, losses on extinguishment of debt, and special items from earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and rent (EBITDAR) for the reasons as described above.  Management believes this metric is helpful to investors in assessing the Company's overall debt.
