St. George, Utah—SkyWest, Inc. (“SkyWest”) (NASDAQ: SKYW) today reported operating revenues of $899.9 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2011, compared to $796.3 million for the same period last year.  SkyWest also reported a net loss of $(18.0) million, or $0.35 per basic and diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2011, compared to $37.2 million of net income, or $0.67 per diluted share, for the same period last year.

 

During the quarter ended December 31, 2011, SkyWest experienced a reduction of approximately $79.2 million in pretax earnings (of which $32.8 million relates to items that positively impacted the results for the fourth quarter of 2010) compared to the same period last year.  Additionally $6.8 million of the difference between the comparable quarters is non-operational and is related to SkyWest’s foreign investments. The combination of these items is $39.6 million or approximately 50% of the difference for the comparable quarters.  Following are the significant items that contributed to the pretax reduction:
