ALLEGIANT TRAVEL COMPANY
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited)

Note 1 — Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Allegiant Travel Company (the “Company”) and its majority-owned operating subsidiaries. The Company's investments in unconsolidated affiliates, which are 50 percent or less owned, are accounted for under the equity or cost method, and are insignificant to the consolidated financial statements. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated.

These unaudited consolidated financial statements reflect all normal recurring adjustments which management believes are necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations, and cash flows of the Company for the respective periods presented. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in the annual consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("U.S. GAAP") have been omitted pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission for Form 10-Q. These unaudited interim consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements of the Company and notes thereto included in the annual report of the Company on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

On December 18, 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-12, Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes. The standard simplifies the accounting and disclosure requirements for income taxes by clarifying existing guidance to improve consistency in application of Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 740. The standard also removes the requirement to calculate income tax expense for the stand-alone financial statements of wholly-owned subsidiaries. The standard is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2020, with early adoption permitted in any interim period within that year. The Company adopted this accounting standard prospectively as of January 1, 2021, and it did not have a significant impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

Note 2 — Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic

The rapid spread of COVID-19 and the related government restrictions, social distancing measures, and consumer fears have impacted flight loads, resulted in unprecedented cancellations of bookings and substantially reduced demand for new bookings throughout the airline industry. Starting in March 2020, the Company experienced a severe reduction in air travel, which continued through the first quarter of 2021. Demand in the foreseeable future will continue to be affected by fluctuations in COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, deaths, treatment efficacy and the availability of vaccines. The Company is continuously reevaluating flight schedules and adjusting capacity based on demand trends.

On December 27, 2020, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (the "Payroll Support Program Extension") was signed into law. This Payroll Support Program Extension provides an additional $15.0 billion in support to the airline industry. On January 15, 2021, the Company through its airline operating subsidiary Allegiant Air, LLC entered into a Payroll Support Program Extension Agreement (the “PSP2”) with the Treasury under the Payroll Support Program Extension. The Company received 2 installments of $45.9 million each in January and March 2021 for a total of $91.8 million under the Payroll Support Program Extension. The funds were used exclusively for wages, salaries and benefits.

During 2020, the Company made significant progress on strengthening its liquidity by suspending all stock buybacks and dividends; executives temporarily reducing their salaries by 50 percent and temporarily foregoing cash compensation of Board members; enacting a hiring freeze and offering voluntary leave; eliminating cash bonuses; suspending all non-essential capital expenditures including, but not limited to, Sunseeker Resorts, Teesnap and Allegiant Nonstop family entertainment centers; and extending payment terms and renegotiating contracts with vendors.

Given the Company's efforts to conserve and raise liquidity and the Company's assumptions about the future impact of COVID-19 on travel demand, which could be materially different due to the inherent uncertainties of the current operating environment, the Company expects to meet its cash obligations as well as remain in compliance with the debt covenants in its existing financing agreements for the next 12 months based on its current level of unrestricted cash and short-term investments, its anticipated access to liquidity and tax refunds, and projected cash flows from operations.

Special Charges

The table below summarizes special charges recorded during the three months ended March 31, 2021.
Three Months Ended March 31,
(in thousands)20212020
Operating$1,738 $166,098 
Non-operating6,802 
Total special charges$1,738 $172,900 

Additional detail for the $1.7 million of total special charges for the three months ended March 31, 2021 appears below:

$1.2 million resulting from the accelerated retirements of 2 airframes and 3 engines
$0.5 million related to an impairment loss on a building in Chesterfield, Missouri associated with the Allegiant Nonstop family entertainment line of business.

In the first quarter 2020, the onset of COVID-19 triggered an impairment review of long lived assets and a non-cash impairment charge of $163.4 million was recognized. The Company also identified $9.5 million of expenses, primarily comprised of salary and benefits, that were unique and specific to COVID-19.


Note 3 — Revenue Recognition

Passenger Revenue

Passenger revenue is the most significant category in our reported operating revenues, as outlined below:
Three Months Ended March 31,
(in thousands)20212020
Scheduled service$131,929 $197,261 
Ancillary air-related charges121,072 176,964 
Co-brand redemptions3,694 4,686 
Total passenger revenue$256,695 $378,911 

Sales of passenger tickets not yet flown are recorded in air traffic liability. Passenger revenue is recognized when transportation is provided or when ticket voucher breakage occurs, to the extent different from estimated breakage. As of March 31, 2021, approximately 55.5 percent of the air traffic liability balance was related to forward bookings, with the remaining 44.5 percent related to credit vouchers for future travel.

The normal contract term of passenger tickets is 12 months and revenue associated with future travel will principally be recognized within this time frame. $70.2 million of the $307.5 million that was recorded in the air traffic liability balance as of December 31, 2020 was recognized into passenger revenue during the three months ended March 31, 2021.

In 2020, the Company announced that credits issued for canceled travel beginning in January 2020 would have an extended
expiration date of two years from the original booking date. This policy continues in effect at the current time. This change
has been considered in estimating the future breakage rate, which represents the value of credit vouchers that are not
expected to be redeemed prior to their contractual expiration date.


Co-brand redemptions

In relation to the travel component of the co-branded credit card contract with Bank of America, the Company has a performance obligation to provide cardholders with points to be used for future travel award redemptions. Therefore, consideration received from Bank of America related to the travel component is deferred based on its relative selling price and is recognized into passenger revenue when the points are redeemed and the transportation is provided.

The following table presents the activity of the co-brand point liability for the periods indicated:
9


Three Months Ended March 31,
(in thousands)20212020
Balance at January 1$21,841 $15,613

Points redeemed (recognition of revenue)(3,694)(4,686)
Balance at March 31$22,718 $17,281 

As of March 31, 2021 and 2020, $10.3 million and $12.5 million, respectively, of the current points liability is reflected in accrued liabilities and represents the current estimate of revenue to be recognized in the next 12 months based on historical trends, with the remaining balance reflected in other noncurrent liabilities expected to be recognized into revenue in periods thereafter.

Note 4 — Property and Equipment

The following table summarizes the Company's property and equipment as of the dates indicated:

Accrued capital expenditures as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020 were $4.1 million and $16.9 million, respectively.

Note 5 — Long-Term Debt

The following table summarizes the Company's Long-term debt and finance lease obligations as of the dates indicated:
(in thousands)March 31, 2021December 31, 2020
Fixed-rate debt and finance lease obligations due through 2029$619,874 $525,240 
Variable-rate debt due through 2029996,178 1,133,771

Weighted average fixed-interest rate on debt5.8 %5.7 %
Weighted average variable-interest rate on debt2.5 %2.4 %

Maturities of long-term debt and finance lease obligations for the remainder of 2021 and for the next four years and thereafter, in the aggregate, are: remaining in 2021 - $120.4 million; 2022 - $131.9 million; 2023 - $131.7 million; 2024 - $801.6 million; 2025 - $84.6 million; and $345.8 million thereafter.

Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility

The senior secured revolving credit facility under which the Company was able to borrow up to $81.0 million matured on March 31, 2021. Principal payments were made during the quarter totaling $7.4 million and the final outstanding balance of $46.5 million was paid at maturity.

In March 2021, the Company entered into a new revolving credit facility under which it is entitled to borrow up to $50.0 million. The facility has a term of 24 months and the borrowing ability is based on the value of the Airbus A320 series aircraft placed into the collateral pool. The notes for amounts borrowed under the facility bear interest at a floating rate based on LIBOR and are due in March 2023. As of March 31, 2021, 0 aircraft collateral had been added to the collateral pool and the facility was undrawn.
10



Note 6 — Income Taxes

The Company recorded an effective tax rate of 20.8 percent and 74.7 percent for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2021 differed from the statutory Federal income tax rate of 21.0 percent primarily due to state income taxes; the impact of ASU 2016-09 related to share-based payments; and reserve for uncertain tax positions. The effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was primarily due to the tax accounting impact of the CARES Act which includes a $39.6 million discrete federal income tax benefit related to the full utilization of 2018 and 2019 net operating losses against taxable income in earlier years in which 35.0 percent was the enacted tax rate; the ability to carryback the 2020 net operating loss at a 35.0 percent rate applicable in earlier years; a deferred tax remeasurement related to the 2020 tax year; and state taxes. While the Company expects its effective tax rate to be fairly consistent in the near term, it will vary depending on recurring items such as the amount of income earned in each state and the state tax rate applicable to such income. Discrete items during interim periods may also affect the Company's tax rates.
11


Note 7 — Leases

The Company evaluates all operating leases and they are measured on the balance sheet with a lease liability and right-of-use asset (“ROU”) at inception. ROU assets represent the Company’s right to use an underlying asset for the lease term, and lease liabilities represent the obligation to make scheduled lease payments. Airport terminal leases mostly include variable lease payments outside of those based on a fixed index, and are therefore not recorded as ROU assets.

The following table summarizes the Company's total assets and liabilities related to leases as of the dates indicated:

(2) March 31, 2021, number represents assets and liabilities of 9 aircraft under finance leases

Sale-Leaseback Transaction

In March 2021, the Company entered into a sale-leaseback transaction involving 3 aircraft and generating $105.0 million of proceeds. The lease was classified as a finance lease and as a result, the transaction did not qualify as a sale. The aircraft were not removed from property and equipment in the Company's balance sheet and the Company recorded a financial liability in the amount of $105.0 million. The proceeds from this transaction are treated as cash inflows from finance lease obligations and reported in financing activities on the statement of cash flows.

Note 8 — Fair Value Measurements

The Company utilizes the market approach to measure the fair value of its financial assets. The market approach uses prices and other relevant information generated by market transactions involving identical or comparable assets. The assets classified as Level 2 primarily utilize quoted market prices or alternative pricing sources including transactions involving identical or comparable assets and models utilizing market observable inputs for valuation of these securities. No changes in valuation techniques or inputs occurred during the three months ended March 31, 2021.

None of the Company's debt is publicly held and as a result, the Company has determined the estimated fair value of these notes to be Level 3. Certain inputs used to determine fair value are unobservable and, therefore, could be sensitive to changes in inputs. The Company utilizes the discounted cash flow method to estimate the fair value of Level 3 debt.

Carrying value and estimated fair value of long-term debt, including current maturities and without reduction for related costs, are as follows:

Due to their short-term nature, the carrying amounts of cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash, accounts receivable and accounts payable approximate fair value.

Note 9 — Earnings (Loss) per Share

Basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share are computed pursuant to the two-class method. Under this method, the Company attributes net income (loss) to two classes: common stock and unvested restricted stock. Unvested restricted stock awards granted to employees under the Company’s Long-Term Incentive Plan are considered participating securities as they receive non-forfeitable rights to cash dividends at the same rate as common stock.

Diluted net income per share is calculated using the more dilutive of the two methods. Under both methods, the exercise of employee stock options is assumed using the treasury stock method. The assumption of vesting of restricted stock, however, differs:

1.Assume vesting of restricted stock using the treasury stock method.

2.Assume unvested restricted stock awards are not vested, and allocate earnings to common shares and unvested restricted stock awards using the two-class method.

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, the second method was used because it was more dilutive than the first method.

Note 11 — Subsequent Events

In April 2021, the Company received $13.8 million in funds related to the PSP2. In consideration for these additional funds, the Company issued additional warrants ( the "PSP2 Warrants") to the Treasury to acquire 924 shares of common stock at a price of $179.23 per share (based on the price of the Company's common stock on the Nasdaq Global Select Market.on December 24, 2020). Also, in consideration for these additional funds received, the PSP2 note was increased to $1.7 million.

In April 2021, the Company through its airline operating subsidiary Allegiant Air, LLC entered into a Payroll Support Program 3 Agreement (the "PSP3") with the Treasury under section 7301 of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. The total amount expected to be allocated to Allegiant Air under the PSP3 is approximately $98.4 million, which must be used exclusively for wages, salaries and benefits. The Company received an initial installment of $49.2 million in April 2021 and the remainder of the funds are expected to be received during the second quarter 2021.

If additional funds are allocated by the Treasury under the PSP3 such that the amount received by the Company exceeds $100.0 million, then Allegiant Air will issue a note for 30 percent for the funds received under the PSP3 in excess of $100.0 million and the Company will be required to issue warrants based on the amount of the notes.

On April 30, 2021, the Company closed on a transaction to sell 85 percent of Teesnap, its golf course management software subsidiary. The Company will retain 15 percent ownership in the business.

Total100 95 
(1) Does not include four aircraft of which we have taken delivery, but were not yet in service as of March 31, 2021.

As of March 31, 2021, we had firm commitments to purchase four aircraft. We expect delivery of three of these aircraft in 2021 and the remaining aircraft in 2022.

NETWORK

As of March 31, 2021, we were selling 580 routes versus 520 as of the same date last year, which represents an 11.5 percent increase. Our total number of origination cities and leisure destinations (for operating routes) were 97 and 32, respectively, as of March 31, 2021. During the first quarter, we announced the addition of a new base in Austin, Texas, beginning base operations in November 2021, which is expected to house three A320 aircraft.

15


Our unique model is predicated around expanding and contracting capacity to meet seasonal travel demands. We are maintaining a broad network and selling presence. We consistently monitor flights to assess for cash profitability.

TRENDS

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted our operating results for the three months ending March 31, 2021 and will continue to do so into the future. Air traffic demand is down substantially and base air fares are down as well. We cannot predict when air travel will return to customary levels or at what pace. In the meantime, our revenues will be adversely affected. We believe that demand in the foreseeable future will continue to fluctuate in response to fluctuations in COVID-19 cases, new variations of the virus, hospitalizations, deaths, treatment efficacy and the availability of vaccines.
Despite the pandemic and airline industry challenges, since the beginning of 2021 and through March 31, 2021, we have announced service on 50 new routes and to three new cities, including seasonal and temporary routes. We will continue to manage capacity to meet demand, which we believe is a core strength of our business model.
Our primary focus during the pandemic has been to conserve cash. We have suspended payment of cash dividends and stock buybacks. We have suspended construction of the Sunseeker Resort in Southwest Florida and closed and disposed of our family entertainment centers. We have eliminated other nonessential expenditures and have renegotiated arrangements with outside vendors, all in an effort to conserve cash until revenues more fully recover.
Health and Safety

Amid various uncertainties and public concern during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have implemented the below measures to ensure health and safety for all traveling on our flights. Due to our focus on these health and safety measures, we were ranked by Safe Travel Barometer in August 2020 as the #1 airline among North American carriers and among the top five worldwide for best COVID-19 Traveler Safety Measures, with results based on an independent audit of more than 150 airlines.

Maintain a comprehensive cleaning program for all aircraft that includes a regular schedule of standard and deep-clean procedures that exceed both CDC and Airbus guidance
Aircraft receive regular treatment with an advanced antimicrobial protectant that kills viruses, germs and bacteria on contact for 14 days
Utilize VOC (volatile organic compound) filters on board every aircraft, which remove additional organic compounds and ensure that cabin air is changed, on average, every three minutes, exceeding HEPA standards
Require customers to wear face coverings through all phases of travel, including at the ticket counter, in the gate area and during flight
Complimentary health and safety kits, which include a single-use face mask and cleaning wipes, available to all of our customers
Crew members required to wear face masks on board and during any interaction with customers
Social distancing principles at check-in, boarding and on-board to the extent practicable
Treat hard surfaces in all office areas, including airport station offices, maintenance facilities, headquarters/administrative offices, with antimicrobial disinfectant/protectant, and utilize wall-mounted and handheld thermometers for employee and crew member temperature checks
Partner with Quest Diagnostics to provide at home COVID-19 test kits to employees in the event local testing is not immediately available

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Comparison of three months ended March 31, 2021 to three months ended March 31, 2020

Operations during the first quarter of 2020 consisted of two months of pre-pandemic activity and March 2020, which was substantially impacted by the pandemic. The entirety of first quarter 2021 was impacted by continuing reduced demand for air travel.

Operating Revenue

Passenger revenue. For the first quarter 2021, passenger revenue decreased 32.3 percent compared to first quarter 2020. This decline was due to a significant decline in passenger demand related to COVID-19 as scheduled service passengers were down 26.4 percent and scheduled service average base fare was down 8.8 percent.

Third party products revenue. Third party products revenue for the first quarter 2021 decreased 14.7 percent, compared to the first quarter 2020. This is primarily due to decreased net revenue from both rental cars and hotels, as a result of fewer passengers and with respect to hotel room revenue, particularly reductions in those traveling to Las Vegas. On a per passenger basis, third party products revenue was up 15.9 percent year over year and 17.0 percent year over first quarter 2019.

16


Fixed fee contract revenue. Despite increased fixed fee flying for March Madness in the first quarter 2021, fixed fee contract revenue for the first quarter 2021 decreased 13.8 percent compared to the same period in 2020 due to decreases in demand. The decreases in fixed fee revenue are related to COVID-19.

Other revenue. Other revenue decreased 79.3 percent for the first quarter 2021 from the same period in 2020. The decrease was due to decreased activity in the non-airline subsidiaries including the closure of the family entertainment centers.

Operating Expenses

We primarily evaluate our expense management by comparing our costs per available seat mile (ASM) across different periods, which enables us to assess trends in each expense category. The following table presents unit costs on a per ASM basis, or CASM, for the indicated periods. Excluding fuel on a per ASM basis provides management and investors the ability to measure and monitor our cost performance absent fuel price volatility. Both the cost and availability of fuel are subject to many economic and political factors beyond our control.

NM - Not meaningful


Salary and benefits expense. Salary and benefits expense increased $5.3 million, or 4.7 percent, for the first quarter 2021 when compared to the same period in 2020. The increase is due to the classification of $9.5 million as COVID-19 related special charges in the first quarter 2020 (consisting almost entirely of salary and benefit expense) offset by a decline in full time equivalent employees of 9.9 percent when compared to March 31, 2020.

Aircraft fuel expense. Aircraft fuel expense decreased $6.0 million, or 6.7 percent, for the first quarter 2021 compared to first quarter 2020 as fuel cost per gallon was relatively flat year over year. System fuel gallons consumed decreased by 6.4 percent on a 1.3 percent decrease in ASMs. Fuel efficiency (measured as ASMs per gallon) increased 5.5 percent year over year due to fuel saving initiatives, as well as less weight on many of our flights, due to a 18.5 percentage point decrease in load factor as compared to the first quarter 2020.

Depreciation and amortization expense. Depreciation and amortization expense for the first quarter 2021 was relatively flat as compared to the first quarter 2020 with a 1.2 percent decrease due to the retirement and sale lease-back transactions of aircraft during 2020.

Station operations expense. Station operations expense for the first quarter 2021 increased $2.1 million, or 5.1 percent compared to the same period in 2020 primarily due to a 12.7 percent increase in airport and landing fees.

Maintenance and repairs expense. Maintenance and repairs expense for the first quarter 2021 increased $1.6 million, or 7.2 percent, compared to the same period in 2020. Routine maintenance costs increased as aircraft utilization was up 1.4 percent during the quarter and we incurred incremental costs preparing our fleet to operate at full capacity again.

Sales and marketing expense. Sales and marketing expense for the first quarter 2021 decreased by 37.1 percent compared to the same period in 2020, due to a decrease in net credit card fees as a result of a 32.3 percent decrease in passenger revenue year-over-year as well as efforts to more adeptly deploy advertising spend during the pandemic.

Other operating expense. Other expense decreased $8.9 million for the first quarter 2021 compared to the first quarter 2020, mostly due to decreased activity in our non-airline subsidiaries.

17


Payroll Support Program grant recognition. We received a total of $91.8 million in direct grants during the first quarter 2021 through the Payroll Support Extension Program. The direct grants were recognized as a credit to operating expense on our statement of income, over the periods for which the funds were intended to compensate. We recognized the entire $91.8 million as an offset to operating expense on our statement of income during the first quarter of 2021.

Special charges. Special charges of $1.7 million were recorded within operating expenses for the first quarter 2021 compared to $172.9 million for the same period in 2020. The special charges relate to expenses that were unique and specific to COVID-19. These charges in 2021 include accelerated depreciation on airframes and engines resulting from an accelerated retirement plan, and losses within our non-airline subsidiaries. Special charges recorded in the first quarter 2020 primarily consisted of impairments related to our non-airline subsidiaries. See Note 2 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (unaudited) for further information.

Interest Expense

Interest expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 declined by $1.4 million, or 7.5 percent, as a result of declines in LIBOR impacting our variable rate debt.

Income Tax Expense

Our effective tax rate was 20.8 percent and 74.7 percent for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2021 differed from the statutory federal income tax rate of 21.0 percent primarily due to state income taxes; the impact of ASU 2016-09 related to share-based payments; and reserve for uncertain tax positions. The effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was primarily due to the tax accounting impact of the CARES Act which includes a $39.6 million discrete federal income tax benefit related to the full utilization of 2018 and 2019 net operating losses against taxable income in earlier years in which 35.0 percent was the enacted tax rate; the ability to carryback the 2020 net operating loss at a 35.0 percent rate applicable in earlier years; a deferred tax remeasurement related to the 2020 tax year; and state taxes. While we expect our effective tax rate to be fairly consistent in the near term, it will vary depending on recurring items such as the amount of income we earn in each state and the state tax rate applicable to such income. Discrete items during interim periods may also affect our tax rates.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Current liquidity

Cash, cash equivalents and investment securities (short-term and long-term) increased to $728.0 million at March 31, 2021, from $685.2 million at December 31, 2020. Investment securities represent highly liquid marketable securities which are available-for-sale.

Restricted cash represents escrowed funds under fixed fee contracts and cash collateral against letters of credit required by hotel properties for guaranteed room availability, airports and certain other parties. Under our fixed fee flying contracts, we require our customers to prepay for flights to be provided by us. The prepayments are escrowed until the flight is completed and are recorded as restricted cash with a corresponding amount reflected as air traffic liability.

During the first quarter 2021, we received a total of $91.8 million in assistance through the Payroll Support Extension Program.

We have suspended share repurchases and our quarterly cash dividend, as part of cash conservation efforts in response to the effects of COVID-19 on our business. In connection with our receipt of financial support under the payroll support program, we agreed not to repurchase shares or pay cash dividends through September 30, 2022.

We believe we have more than adequate liquidity resources through our cash balances, operating cash flows, borrowings and expected tax refunds, to meet our future contractual obligations. We will continue to consider raising funds through debt financing on an opportunistic basis.

Debt

Our debt and finance lease obligations balance, without reduction for related issuance costs, decreased from $1.68 billion as of December 31, 2020 to $1.64 billion as of March 31, 2021. During the first quarter of 2021, we borrowed $105.0 million and we made principal payments of $151.5 million, including $53.9 million on our senior secured revolving credit facility that matured on March 31, 2021 and a $54.8 million prepayment of debt secured by aircraft.

Despite substantially lower revenues caused by the pandemic, our total debt and finance lease obligations declined by 2.7% from December 31, 2020 until March 31, 2021.

Sources and Uses of Cash

Operating Activities. Operating cash inflows are primarily derived from providing air transportation and related ancillary products and services to customers. During the three months ended March 31, 2021, our operating activities provided $168.0 million of cash compared to $106.3 million during the same period of 2020 mostly attributable to a $39.9 million increase in net income and a $41.7 million larger increase in air traffic liability.

Investing Activities. Cash provided by investing activities was $35.7 million during the three months ended March 31, 2021 compared to cash used of $106.9 million for the same period in 2020. The change is due to a $65.0 million year-over-year decrease in cash outlays for the purchase of property and equipment and an increase of $79.9 million of proceeds from maturities of investment securities net of purchases.

Financing Activities. Cash used by financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was $47.2 million, compared to cash provided of $17.8 million for the same period in 2020. The year-over-year change is mostly due to the net effect of debt activity, as principal payments exceeded debt proceeds by $47.2 million during the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to $63.0 million of debt proceeds (net of related costs) in excess of principal payments during the same period in 2020. Additionally, there were no share repurchases in the first quarter of 2021 (the share repurchase program was suspended) compared to $33.8 million during the first three months of 2020. Dividends paid decreased by $11.5 million year-over-year as dividend payments were also suspended due to the pandemic.

CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

We have made forward-looking statements in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q, and in the section entitled “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” that are based on our management’s beliefs and assumptions, and on information currently available to our management. Forward-looking statements include our statements regarding future expenses, revenues, earnings, ASM growth, fuel consumption, expected capital expenditures, number of contracted aircraft to be placed in service in the future, the development and financing of our Sunseeker Resort, as well as other information concerning future results of operations, business strategies, financing plans, competitive position, industry environment, potential growth opportunities, the effects of future regulation and the effects of competition. Forward-looking statements include all statements that are not historical facts and can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as the words "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "intend," "plan," "estimate," “project,” “hope” or similar expressions.

20



Forward-looking statements involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Actual results may differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements. Important risk factors that could cause our results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements may be found in our periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission at www.sec.gov. These risk factors include, without limitation, the impact and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic on airline travel and the economy, liquidity issues resulting from the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business, restrictions imposed on us a result of accepting government grants under the Payroll Support Programs, an accident involving, or problems with, our aircraft, public perception of our safety, our reliance on our automated systems, our reliance on third parties to deliver aircraft under contract to us on a timely basis, risk of breach of security of personal data, volatility of fuel costs, labor issues and costs, the ability to obtain regulatory approvals as needed, the effect of economic conditions on leisure travel, debt covenants and balances, the ability to finance aircraft to be acquired, terrorist attacks, risks inherent to airlines, our competitive environment, our reliance on third parties who provide facilities or services to us, the possible loss of key personnel, economic and other conditions in markets in which we operate, the ability to successfully develop and finance a resort in Southwest Florida, governmental regulation, increases in maintenance costs and cyclical and seasonal fluctuations in our operating results.

Any forward-looking statements are based on information available to us today and we undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of future events, new information or otherwise.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES

There have been no material changes to our critical accounting estimates during the three months ended March 31, 2021. For information regarding our critical accounting policies and estimates, see disclosures in the Consolidated Financial Statements and accompanying notes contained in our 2020 Form 10-K, and in Note 1 of Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (unaudited).

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

We are subject to certain market risks, including commodity prices (specifically aircraft fuel). The adverse effects of changes in these markets could pose potential losses as discussed below. The sensitivity analysis provided does not consider the effects that such adverse changes may have on overall economic activity, nor does it consider additional actions we may take to mitigate our exposure to such changes. Actual results may differ.

Aircraft Fuel

Our results of operations can be significantly impacted by changes in the price and availability of aircraft fuel. Aircraft fuel expense for the three months ended March 31, 2021 represented 32.6 percent of our total operating expenses. Increases in fuel prices, or a shortage of supply, could have a material impact on our operations and operating results. Based on our fuel consumption for the three months ended March 31, 2021, a hypothetical ten percent increase in the average price per gallon of fuel would have increased fuel expense by approximately $8.2 million. We have not hedged fuel price risk for many years.

Interest Rates

As of March 31, 2021, we had $1.01 billion of variable-rate debt, including current maturities and without reduction for $16.8 million in related costs. A hypothetical 100 basis point change in interest rates would have affected interest expense on variable rate debt by approximately $2.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

As of March 31, 2021, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our chief executive officer ("CEO") and chief financial officer (“CFO”), we evaluated the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the “Exchange Act”) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation, management, including our CEO and CFO, has concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are designed, and are effective, to give reasonable assurance that the information we are required to disclose is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including the CEO and the CFO, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the quarter ending March 31, 2021, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
