Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico Announces Results for the First Quarter of 2020

GUADALAJARA, Mexico, April 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico, S.A.B. de C.V. (NYSE: PAC; BMV: GAP) (“the Company” or “GAP”) reported its consolidated results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020. Figures are unaudited and have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (“IASB”).

Events related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak:

In December 2019, a novel strain of COVID-19 was reported to have surfaced in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. Between January and February of 2020, this disease spread to other countries. On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic, which resulted in the gradual cancellation of international flights from Canada, the United States and Europe, and was reflected in the significant decline in passenger traffic in both Mexico and Jamaica.
                  
As a result of the pandemic, governments around the world have taken preventative measures in order to mitigate the spread. In terms of the operation of our airports in Mexico, the government has not issued any travel restrictions. However, Phase 1 of the pandemic was declared during the second week of March and Phase 3 was declared during the third week of April, where the government emphatically recommended that only essential activity take place and that people should avoid leaving their homes whenever possible. This has resulted in the cancellation of a large volume of domestic and international flights. With respect to the operation of the airports in Jamaica, the government suspended all incoming international flights, for a period of 14 days beginning on March 25, 2020, except for cargo and merchandise transport; only commercial flights are permitted to depart. These measures have been extended until May 30, 2020 in Mexico and until May 31,2020 in Jamaica.

The abovementioned has considerably reduced air travel demand and availability, resulting in a deceleration of passenger traffic. In turn, this has generated a significantly adverse effect on the Company’s operations and revenue.

Company Actions:

  • The Company has implemented a cost control plan for its service costs, throughout all 14 airports, running the operation at minimal levels without lowering passenger service quality, in accordance with the current demand. Unused operating areas have been closed, such as documentation modules, passenger revision lines, waiting areas, boarding gates, baggage claim areas, among others.
     
  • Non-mandatory capital investments will be delayed and/or cancelled for the time being. The Company is reviewing with the authorities the deferral of investments that were included in the Master Development Program and were scheduled to take place this year. The change in the demand has lowered the growth capacity needs in the airports, therefore, the investments are expected to decrease.
     
  • Shareholder dividend distributions and payments, as well as capital reductions, that had taken place in prior years were postponed as a measure of protecting the Company’s cash flow. This will be the case until we understand the financial impact this traffic reduction represents, and we have more clarity as to when the operation will normalize.
     
  • As a support measure during this health emergency, the Company will offer discounts for some of its airport and commercial services to the airlines and tenants. Additionally, throughout our network of airports, the Company will grant payment deferrals to some of its clients and tenants in order to help them preserve liquidity and reinitiate financial activity as fast as possible upon the elimination of all mobility restrictions.
     
  • In order to protect the health of our employees and the operating capacity of our airports, GAP has implemented certain activities, such as: (i) compliance with health recommendations from the Mexican Ministry of Health regarding the proper disinfection of common areas and aircraft boarding equipment; (ii) implementation of distancing parameters in passenger documentation and boarding areas; (iii) support to the authorities offering them working areas, infrastructure and supplies to conduct passenger revisions; (iv) home office connectivity for all administrative and corporate personnel; and the (v) creation of operating personnel groups so that we may minimize the number of personnel at the airports, while also having backup teams in the event of any emergency with main teams.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Company’s Financial Position:

While the Company is reporting a solid financial position for the first quarter of 2020, it also has the option of using bank credit lines in order to finance working capital needs. Additionally, it has the ability to issue long-term bond certificates (Certificados Bursátiles) to finance capital investments. Cash and Equivalents at March 31, 2020 stand at Ps. 10,973.9 million, and at Ps. 12,211.8 million as of April 23, 2020. Nevertheless, the Company cannot assure the impact that the pandemic as well as local and global economic conditions may have on the availability and conditions of financing and, therefore, there is no assurance as to the Company's ability to access financing nor on the financing terms.

Per 1Q20 results, the Company complies with all bank loan debt covenants: Net Debt/EBITDA 0.73x (>3.0x), Debt Service 3.09x (>1.1x), Total Equity Ps. 22,599.6 million (> Ps. 10,000.0 million).

The Company carried out an analysis to value the risk of its portfolio with the airlines and commercial clients, in terms of liquidity. As such, in 1Q20 GAP recognizes a provision of Ps. 46.0 million in its operating costs as a reserve for doubtful accounts.

In accordance with annual estimates for 2020, the Company expects the recovery of deferred asset tax on the Statement of Financial Position, even though the results are lower than those of 2019.

While the Company expects a negative impact to its operation and its financial results due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it does not foresee a risk to the overall continuity of the business. The Company has carried out a preliminary analysis of the financial results in the short, medium and long term, and has not identified any significant asset deterioration. Nevertheless, the demand trend may decrease more than expected and the pandemic impact could magnify, so the Company will maintain constant analysis and monitoring. As of today, GAP does not expect interruptions to the business and has the ability to continue as a going concern and do not foresight the cancellation of its operations at any of the airports.

The Company is unable to predict with certainty the impact that the COVID-19 outbreak will have for the rest of the year in its business, its clients, suppliers and employees, as well as on international air travel, or to what degree it may impact air travel demand in the regions in which the Company operates. Continuous travel restrictions, as well as general population fears with respect to air travel, could have a materially adverse effect on our business and on our operating results. The Company will continue informing the market regarding relevant updates to our operations, as well as to measures that are being adopted in order to preserve liquidity and the continuity of the business. The global and domestic impact of the pandemic will depend on its duration and its impact on the economy and air traffic.

- Net income and comprehensive income per share were calculated based on 561,000,000 outstanding shares. U.S. dollar figures presented were converted from pesos to U.S. dollars at a rate of Ps. 23.4480 per U.S. dollar (the noon buying rate on March 31, 2020, as published by the U.S. Federal Reserve Board).
- For purposes of the consolidation of the Montego Bay airport and the Kingston airport, the average monthly exchange rate of Ps. 19.8551 per U.S. dollar for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was used.

Revenues (1Q20 vs. 1Q19)

  • Aeronautical services revenues increased by Ps. 492.5 million, or 18.7%
  • Non-aeronautical services revenues increased by Ps. 120.5 million, or 13.4%
  • Revenues from improvements to concession assets increased by Ps. 676.7 million, or 462.0%
  • Total revenues increased by Ps. 1,289.7 million, or 35.1%
  • Aeronautical services revenues include:

    1. Revenues from the Mexican airports increased by Ps. 334.1 million, or 15.2%, compared to 1Q19, generated mainly by an increase of Ps. 315.4 million or 16.4% in revenues from higher passenger charges per the higher passenger fees approved under the 2020-2024 Master Development Program, and higher inflation for the period. This effect was offset by a 3.0% decrease in passenger traffic, as well as an increase of revenues from aircraft landing and aircraft parking charges of Ps. 16.7 million. Inflation applicable to the passenger charges for 1Q20 rose by 3.8%.

    2. Revenues from the Montego Bay airport increased by Ps. 17.6 million, or 4.0%, compared to 1Q19. This was mainly due to a 3.3% depreciation of the Mexican peso against the U.S. dollar, from an average exchange rate of Ps. 19.2199 in 1Q19 to an average exchange rate of Ps. 19.8551 in 1Q20, as well as the increase in passenger fees as approved under the 2020-2024 Master Development Program.

    3. The consolidation of aeronautical revenues from the Kingston airport contributed Ps. 140.8 million to revenues. 

  • Non-aeronautical services revenues include:

    1. The Mexican airports contributed an increase of Ps. 74.5 million, or 9.9%, compared to 1Q19, mainly driven by an increase of Ps. 65.6 million in revenues from businesses operated by third parties. This was mainly due to the increase in revenues from car rentals, food and beverage operations, commercial spaces and duty-free stores, which jointly increased by Ps. 60.6 million.

      Revenues from businesses operated directly by the Company increased by Ps. 19.4 million, or 34.4%, mainly due to an increase in revenues from VIP lounges and convenience stores, which was offset by a decline in revenues from car parking for Ps. 11.2 million or 13.6% due to local protestors blocking of the car parking in the Guadalajara airport starting in November 2019 and ending in the second week of February 2020.

    2. Revenues from the Montego Bay airport in 1Q20 decreased by Ps. 6.1 million, or 3.8% compared to 1Q19, mainly due to the partial closure of commercial business operations due to the remodeling of the terminal building.

    3. The consolidation of the Kingston airport contributed Ps. 52.1 million to non-aeronautical revenue.

Figures expressed in thousands of Mexican pesos.

  • Revenues from improvements to concession assets1
    Revenues from improvements to concession assets (IFRIC 12) increased by Ps. 676.7 million, or 462.0%, compared to 1Q19, mainly in the airports in Mexico, given that  2020 marks the beginning of the 2020-2024 Master Development Program for Ps. 701.8 million and represented the most significant committed investment amounts to date. This increase was offset by the decline in improvements to concession assets at the Montego Bay airport of Ps. 25.1 million, or 61.1%.

___________________________________
[1] Revenues from improvements to concession assets are recognized in accordance with International Financial Reporting Interpretation Committee 12 “Service Concession Arrangements” (IFRIC 12), but this recognition does not have a cash impact or an impact on the Company’s operating results. Amounts included as a result of the recognition of IFRIC 12 are related to construction of infrastructure in each quarter to which the Company has committed in accordance with the Company’s Master Development Programs in Mexico and Capital Development Program in Jamaica. All margins and ratios calculated using “Total Revenues” include revenues from improvements to concession assets (IFRIC 12), and, consequently, such margins and ratios may not be comparable to other ratios and margins, such as EBITDA margin, operating margin or other similar ratios that are calculated based on those results of the Company that do have a cash impact.

Total operating costs increased by Ps. 1,026.2 million, or 64.1%, compared to 1Q19. Excluding the cost of improvements to the concession assets (IFRIC-12) and costs for the Kingston airport, operating costs increased Ps. 144.6 million, or 9.9%.

Mexican Airports:

  • Operating costs increased by Ps. 825.7 million, or 70.5%, compared to 1Q19, mainly due to an increase in the cost of improvements to the concession assets (IFRIC 12) for Ps. 701.8 million, cost of services for Ps. 48.6 million, technical assistance fees and concession fee of Ps. 36.6 million, or 12.5%, jointly, and depreciation and amortization of Ps. 37.4 million, or 11.5%.

    The increase in the cost of services was mainly due to:

    • Employee costs increased by Ps. 29.2 million, or 17.9%, compared to 1Q19, mainly due to salary increases that took place in 2Q19, as well as an increase of 6.8% in head count.
    • Other operating expenses increased by Ps. 16.5 million, or 16.3%, compared to 1Q19, mainly due to cost of sales in the VIP lounges and convenience stores, professional service fees, and advertising for Ps. 15.1 million, or 13.9%.
    • Cost of services increased by Ps. 5.4 million, or 11.0%, due to the expansion in square meters, of the terminal buildings as well as the increase in electricity costs during 2020.
    • These increases were offset by a decrease in maintenance expenses of Ps. 7.6 million, or 8.0%, compared to 1Q19.

Montego Bay Airport:

  • Operating costs decreased by Ps. 10.1 million, or 2.8%, compared to 1Q19, mainly due to a decrease in improvements to concession assets (IFRIC 12) of Ps. 25.1 million, higher concession fee of Ps. 15.7 million, which were offset by an increase in depreciation and amortization of Ps. 20.7 million, or 21.6%, and cost of services of Ps. 11.5 million. Operating costs in U.S. dollars declined by US$ 1.1 million, however, this figure was offset by the depreciation of the peso versus the dollar of 3.3.%.

Kingston Airport:

  • The consolidation of the Kingston airport resulted in an increase in expenses of Ps. 204.9 million in 1Q20, mainly due to the concession fee of Ps. 114.3 million, other operating costs of Ps. 27.9 million, employee costs of Ps. 20.9 million, security and insurance costs of Ps. 16.2 million, utility costs of Ps. 13.1 million, and maintenance expenses of Ps. 10.4 million.

Operating margin for 1Q20 decreased by 940 basis points, from 56.5% in 1Q19 to 47.1% in 1Q20. Excluding the effects of IFRIC 12, operating margin decreased by 230 basis points, from 58.8% in 1Q19 to 56.5% in 1Q20. Operating income increased by Ps. 263.5 million, or 12.7%, compared to 1Q19.

EBITDA margin decreased by 1,120 basis points from 68.0% in 1Q19 to 56.8% in 1Q20. Excluding the effects of IFRIC 12, EBITDA margin decreased by 260 basis points from 70.8% in 1Q19 to 68.2% in 1Q20. The nominal value of EBITDA increased by Ps. 323.9 million, or 13.0%, compared to 1Q19.

The net financial result decreased by Ps. 67.5 million, from a net expense of Ps. 82.6 million in 1Q19 to a net expense of Ps. 15.1 million in 1Q20. This decrease was mainly the result of:

  • Foreign exchange rate fluctuations, which went from a Ps. 69.3 million gain in 1Q19 to Ps. 236.4 million in 1Q20, mainly due to an 1.5% appreciation of the Mexican peso against the U.S. dollar in 1Q19, compared to an depreciation of 24.8% at the end of 1Q20, thereby generating an increase in the foreign exchange gain of Ps. 167.1 million. The currency translation effect represented a higher gain of Ps. 1,511.3 million, compared to 1Q19 and is reflected in the consolidated income.
     
  • An increase in interest expenses of Ps. 44.0 million compared to 1Q19, mainly due to higher debt derived from the issuance of long-term bond certificates (Certificados Bursátiles) and interest paid for hedging instruments.
     
  • Interest income declined by Ps. 55.6 million, or 37.1%, mainly due to the decline in the fair value of the hedging instruments and was offset by an increase in interest.

Comprehensive income increased by Ps. 1,861.7 million, or 142.8%, compared to 1Q19.

This increase was mainly the result of an exchange rate loss resulting from the foreign exchange conversion effects of Ps. 1,511.3 million. Net income increased by Ps. 410.5 million, or 29.4% in 1Q20.

Income taxes decreased by Ps. 79.4 million, or 13.3%, in 1Q20. This was a result of a higher incurred tax of Ps. 189.8 million, due to higher accumulated inflation, which went from 0.4% in 1Q19 to an inflation of 0.9% in 1Q20. This was offset by an increase in taxes incurred of Ps. 110.4 million.

Total assets as of March 31, 2020 increased by Ps. 3,576.4 million compared to March 31, 2019, primarily due to the following items: (i) improvements to concession assets of Ps. 1,714.6 million; (ii) accounts receivable for Ps. 600.4 million; (iii) an increase in deferred taxes of Ps. 391.7 million; (iv) airport concessions of Ps. 328.2 million; and (v) cash and equivalents of Ps. 317.3 million, among others.

Total liabilities as of March 31, 2020 increased by Ps. 2,817.4 million compared to the same period of 2019. This increase was primarily due to the following items: (i) bank loans of Ps. 1,070.0 million due to the 24.8% depreciation of the dollar in 1Q20; (ii) debt of Ps. 800.0 million; (iii) derivative financial instruments of Ps. 385.0 million; (iv) concession fees of Ps. 159.4 million; and (v) liabilities from deferred taxes of Ps. 135.1 million.

For presentation purposes, the 25.5% stake in Desarrollo de Concesiones Aeroportuarias, S.L. (“DCA”) held by Vantage appears in the Stockholders’ Equity of the Company as a non-controlling interest.

As a part of the adoption of IFRS, the effects of inflation on common stock recognized pursuant to Mexican Financial Reporting Standards (MFRS) through March 31, 2007 were reclassified as retained earnings because accumulated inflation recognized under MFRS is not considered hyperinflationary according to IFRS. For Mexican legal and tax purposes, Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico, S.A.B. de C.V., as an individual entity, will continue preparing separate financial information under MFRS. Therefore, for any transaction between the Company and its shareholders related to stockholders’ equity, the Company must take into consideration the accounting balances prepared under MFRS as an individual entity and determine the tax impact under tax laws applicable in Mexico, which requires the use of MFRS. For purposes of reporting to stock exchanges, the consolidated financial statements will continue being prepared in accordance with IFRS, as issued by the IASB.
