Spirit Airlines Reports Third Quarter 2018 Results

MIRAMAR, Fla., October 24, 2018 - Spirit Airlines, Inc. (NYSE: SAVE) today reported third quarter 2018 financial results.
GAAP net income for the third quarter 2018 was $97.5 million ($1.42 per diluted share), or $100.5 million ($1.47 per diluted share)1 excluding special items.

GAAP operating margin for the third quarter 2018 was 16.0 percent, or 16.1 percent excluding special items1.

Spirit ended the third quarter 2018 with unrestricted cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments of $875.9 million.

“As our third quarter results show, we are beginning to realize the benefits of the investments we’ve made to improve our business. Our passenger revenue initiatives are allowing us to better optimize yields throughout the booking curve, our ancillary revenue initiatives continue to drive improved results, and we are consistently delivering operational reliability.  In fact, year-to-date, we are among the top airlines for on-time performance as measured by the D.O.T.,” said Robert Fornaro, Spirit’s Chief Executive Officer.  “In addition, over the last three years we have diversified our network, increased density in several key markets to allow for increased connectivity, and culled many of our underperforming routes.  We are just beginning to reap the benefit of all these changes and are excited about the potential to leverage them further.”
“Consistently delivering operational reliability is just the beginning in our quest to improve the overall guest experience.  We’ve invested in Spirit Signature Service training for our flight attendants, airport personnel, and other team members, we’ve made enhancements at our airports to lessen queue times, we’ve broadened and diversified our network, and we are adding guest amenities such as the option for inflight Wi-Fi.  These, and more, are part of our Invest in the Guest pledge.  Improving our Guests’ experience, together with our initiatives to drive revenue and our continued determination to maintain our industry-leading low-cost structure, positions us well to deliver strong returns for our shareholders," said Ted Christie, Spirit's President.

Revenue Performance
For the third quarter 2018, Spirit's total operating revenue was $904.3 million, an increase of 31.6 percent compared to the third quarter 2017, driven by a 24.6 percent increase in passenger segments and a 3.0 percent increase in operating yields.

Total operating revenue per available seat mile ("TRASM") for the third quarter 2018 increased 5.5 percent compared to the same period last year. During the third quarter 2018, the Company's results benefited from its strategic network re-orientation, improved yield management processes, non-ticket revenue initiatives, and a strong operating environment.

On a per passenger flight segment basis, total revenue for the third quarter 2018 increased 5.6 percent year over year to $115.11 with fare revenue per passenger flight segment increasing 7.6 percent to $60.67 and non-ticket revenue per passenger flight segment increasing 3.5 percent to $54.442.
