SkyWest Inc. issued this financial statement:

Fourth Quarter and Annual Results

  • Q4 2020 pre-tax loss of $59 million, net loss of $46 million, or $0.93 loss per share
  • Full year 2020 pre-tax loss of $7 million, net loss of $9 million, or $0.17 loss per share
  • Full year 2020 revenue of $2.1 billion, down 28% from 2019 due to COVID-19
  • As previously announced:

SkyWest, Inc. reported financial and operating results for Q4 2020, including a net loss of $46 million, or $0.93 loss per share, compared to net income of $73 million, or $1.43 per diluted share, for Q4 2019. SkyWest also reported a net loss of $9 million, or $0.17 loss per share, for the 2020 year, compared to net income of $340 million, or $6.62 per diluted share, for the 2019 year. The primary factor in SkyWest’s lower results in 2020 compared to 2019 was reduced flight schedules and lower demand resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Commenting on the results, Chip Childs, Chief Executive Officer of SkyWest, said, “The past year has challenged our industry, our business, and our people beyond what anyone could have anticipated, and we responded quickly and aggressively to protect our people, our partners, and our business. I’m incredibly proud of the SkyWest team’s great work and the flexibility they continue to demonstrate. We believe we’re in a strong position to play a key role in the industry’s recovery and we remain committed to positioning SkyWest for future success.”

Financial Results Revenue was $590 million in Q4 2020, down from $744 million in Q4 2019, or 21%, due to the COVID-19 pandemic that caused a significant reduction in the number of scheduled flights SkyWest operated under its flying agreements compared to the same period last year. Sequentially, revenue in Q4 2020 was up from $457 million Q3 2020, or 29%, due to improvements in demand for our scheduled flights. Total block hours in Q4 2020 were down 27% from Q4 2019 and up 20% from Q3 2020.

 

Capital and Liquidity SkyWest had $826 million in cash and marketable securities at December 31, 2020, up from $822 million at September 30, 2020 and $520 million at December 31, 2019.

In consideration for the funding, approximately $40 million will be in the form of a ten-year, low interest unsecured term loan, and SkyWest will issue to Treasury warrants to purchase approximately 98,815 shares of SkyWest common stock at a strike price of $40.41.

During 2020, SkyWest received $450 million under the payroll support program with Treasury under the CARES Act. In consideration for the funding, $105 million was in the form of a ten-year, low interest unsecured term loan.

Total debt at December 31, 2020 was $3.2 billion, up from $3.1 billion at September 30, 2020 and $3.0 billion at December 31, 2019. Capital expenditures during Q4 2020 included $230 million for the purchase of four new E175 aircraft and 22 used CRJ700 aircraft and $28 million for other maintenance assets.
