"As we continue to navigate through the pandemic we have been encouraged by the modest, yet consistent improvements during the third quarter and into the fourth," stated Maurice J. Gallagher, Jr., chairman and CEO of Allegiant Travel Company. "Consumer confidence towards air travel is improving as seen in our quarterly performance. We completed the quarter beating consensus with a loss per share of $4.28, excluding one-time, special items, and the benefit from the CARES Act. Our scheduled capacity year-over-year was down less than seven percent, perhaps the best showing in the industry. Revenue is also trending in the right direction with September totals down 43 percent versus prior year. Although we still have a long road ahead of us, the progress we've seen is a direct reflection of the quality of our people and the nimbleness of the model.

"As we move into the fourth quarter, we remain focused on cash management. Our cash preservation strategy continues to center around maintaining a broad selling presence as well as stripping costs from the business. Our revenue and planning teams have done an exceptional job optimizing our schedule available for sale. We've seen average daily gross bookings increase from just over $2 million per day during the third quarter to over $3 million per day thus far in the fourth quarter. On the cost front, we successfully reduced variable operating expenses by nearly 30 percent, excluding the CARES Act payroll support benefit and one-time special items, which outpaces our reduction in capacity more than threefold. These savings are important in paving the way to cash break-even. Our cash preservation strategies coupled with strategic capital raises over the last several weeks have contributed to our pro forma cash balance of $850 million.

"Even though we're pleased with recent progress, we remain cautious. We have had to make tough decisions the past few months, including a reduction in our workforce. Although difficult, these steps were necessary to right size our organization to better align with demand. This environment has been difficult for our team members, and I cannot thank them enough for their continued hard work and dedication during this trying time. Their efforts to prioritize health and safety for our passengers, and our leadership efforts to bolster the financial health of the company have laid a solid foundation for our recovery. This has been and will continue to be a slow climb out of this abyss known as COVID. At this point, I believe we are leading the way out towards light ahead in the coming months and year."

Appendix A
Non-GAAP Presentation
Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2020 and 2019
(Unaudited)

Adjusted operating income (loss), adjusted income (loss) before income taxes, adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share, all eliminate the effect of special expenses, related directly to COVID 19, as well as the benefit related to the payroll support grant as provided under the CARES Act, which are not reflective of our ongoing operating performance. The adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share also ignores a one-time tax benefit allowed under the CARES Act. As such, all of these are non-GAAP financial measures.

In addition, airline operating expense and adjusted airline operating expense eliminate the effects of non-airline operating activity, which is not reflective of the airline operating performance.

EBITDA, as presented in this press release, and the various adjusted and airline only metrics disclosed, are supplemental measures of our performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). They are not measurements of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity.

We define “EBITDA” as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. "Adjusted EBITDA" is EBITDA adjusted to eliminate the effect of special charges and the CARES Act grant. We caution investors that amounts presented in accordance with these definitions may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other issuers, because not all issuers and analysts calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA in the same manner.

We use EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate our operating performance and liquidity and these are among the primary measures used by management for planning and forecasting of future periods. We believe the presentation of these measures is relevant and useful for investors because they allow investors to view results in a manner similar to the method used by management and makes it easier to compare our results with other companies that have different financing and capital structures. EBITDA has important limitations as an analytical tool. These limitations include the following:

EBITDA does not reflect our capital expenditures, future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments to purchase capital equipment;
EBITDA does not reflect interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service principal or interest payments on our debt;
although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets that we currently depreciate and amortize will likely have to be replaced in the future, and EBITDA does not reflect the cash required to fund such replacements; and
other companies in our industry may calculate EBITDA differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Presented below is a quantitative reconciliation of EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial performance measure, which we believe is net income (loss). We believe the presentation of EBITDA and the various adjusted and airline only measures are relevant and useful for investors because they allow them to better gauge the performance of the airline and to compare our results to other airlines.

In addition to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as defined above, we have included a separate EBITDA as defined by certain credit agreements. This measurement of EBITDA adjusts for losses on impairment, Sunseeker net income/(loss), stock compensation expense, amortization of debt issuance costs, (gain)/loss on disposal of assets, tax provision - in excess of cash paid, special non-recurring items, and other items.

The SEC has adopted rules (Regulation G) regulating the use of non-GAAP financial measures. Because of our use of non-GAAP financial measures in this press release to supplement our consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Regulation G requires us to include in this press release a presentation of the most directly comparable GAAP measure, which is operating revenue, operating income (loss), net income (loss), operating expenses, and diluted earnings (loss) per share and a reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measure. Our utilization of non-GAAP measurements is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating income (loss), net income (loss) or other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our use of these non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies in the airline and travel industry. The reconciliation of each of these measures to the most comparable GAAP measure for the periods is indicated below.
