CORPORACION AMERICA AIRPORTS ANNOUNCES 2Q19 RESULTS

Passenger traffic up 3.8% with growth of 12.3% YoY in Argentina and 8.9% in Armenia further supported by increases in Ecuador and Peru, despite declines in Brazil and Uruguay

 

Luxembourg, August 23, 2019— Corporación América Airports S.A. (NYSE: CAAP), (“CAAP” or the “Company”) the largest private sector airport operator based on the number of airports under management and the tenth largest private sector airport operator worldwide based on passenger traffic, reported today its unaudited, consolidated results for the three- and six- month periods ended June 30, 2019. Financial results are expressed in millions of U.S. dollars and are prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34 “Interim Financial Reporting” (“IAS 34”) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board.

 

Commencing 3Q18, the Company began reporting results of its Argentinean subsidiaries applying Hyperinflation Accounting, in accordance to IFRS rule IAS 29 (“IAS 29”), as detailed on Section “Hyperinflation Accounting in Argentina” on page 20.

 

Second Quarter 2019 Highlights

§Consolidated revenues of $412.6 million, up 3.9% YoY. Excluding the impact of IFRS rule IAS 29, revenues remained stable at $395.5, mainly due to higher construction service revenue in Argentina reflecting higher capex in the period.
§Performance of key operating metrics:
§Passenger traffic up 3.8% YoY to 19.8 million
§Cargo volume increased 6.6% to 104.7 thousand tons
§Aircraft movements declined 4.0% to 206.9 thousand
§Operating Income declined 18.7% YoY, to $76.5, mainly impacted by IAS 29, and the operating margin contracted to 18.5% from 23.7% in 2Q18
§Adjusted EBITDA was $118.5 million, down 2.2% YoY, with Adjusted EBITDA margin Ex-IFRIC12 expanding 53 bps to 37.7%
§Ex-IAS 29, Adjusted EBITDA declined 6.6% YoY to $113.1 million, and Adjusted EBITDA margin Ex-IFRIC12 expanded 19 bps to 37.4%

 

CEO Message

Commenting on second quarter 2019 results, Mr. Martín Eurnekian, CEO of Corporación América Airports, noted: “The quarter was characterized by ongoing headwinds, particularly in Argentina, our largest market, and to a lesser extent in Brazil. We also experienced a continued mix shift towards more affordable domestic traffic and weaker commercial revenues. At the same time, traffic at our Brazilian airports was impacted by the cessation of operations of Avianca Brasil. Despite these challenges, comparable Adjusted EBITDA margin Ex-IFRIC12 was flat at 37% year-on-year. Better margins this quarter in Italy and Uruguay, were more than offset by margin contraction in Argentina, Ecuador and Armenia. Over 20 million passengers travelled through our airport network in 2Q19 – up approximately 4% year-on-year as we continue to add new routes and airlines. This growth reflects domestic traffic increasing 9% partially offset by international traffic which was down in the low single digits.

 

Looking towards the second half of the year, weak macro conditions and heightened volatility in Argentina surrounding the presidential election add another layer of uncertainty. In Brazil, we expect Avianca’s former capacity at Brasilia Airport to be gradually restored by the three other carriers with domestic operations at this airport commencing by year-end, while in Italy, as we continue to monitor the evolution of Alitalia and the development of Brexit, we are expecting a good summer travel season.

 

Despite these near-term challenges, we have a successful track record of operating in Argentina for over 20 years, many of which were under uncertain scenarios. Our business model is resilient with nearly 80% of revenues generated in US dollars. Furthermore, our solid balance sheet also provides flexibility and support for our strategy of advancing on investment projects as we modernize and expand capacity to meet overall growing demand. In turn, the Company will be better positioned for growth as volatility in Argentina recedes and the macro environment improves.”

Operating Performance

 

Passenger Traffic

Total passenger traffic increased 3.8% YoY to 19.8 million, principally driven by YoY increases of 12.3% in Argentina and 8.9% in Armenia, which contributed an additional 1.1 and 0.1 million passengers, respectively, and was partially offset by traffic declines in Brazil and Uruguay. In addition, the Company faced easier comps in 2Q19 as the Easter holidays this year fell in April, while in 2018 they fell in March.

 

Traffic dynamics in Argentina remained impacted by the challenging macro environment and the 86.6% quarterly average currency depreciation, resulting in slower growth in overall travel demand and a mix-shift from international to domestic traffic. Domestic traffic increased 22.1% YoY, while international traffic declined 5.5%. During the quarter, low cost carrier Flybondi continued to add new domestic routes and Chilean low-cost airline JetSmart begun domestic operations. In addition, American Airlines opened a new international route from Córdoba Airport to Miami, United States.

 

In Brazil, passenger traffic declined 9.8% YoY, mainly impacted by the cessation of operations by a Brazilian carrier, and the reduction in less profitable frequencies by a Latin American international airline. Domestic and transit traffic declined 10.4% and 10.3% respectively, offset by a 12.2% increase in international traffic, according to the new traffic count methodology applied by ANAC since June 2018. Based on the prior methodology, international traffic would have increased 34.7% YoY at Brasilia airport.

Traffic in Italy remained stable YoY in 2Q19, with total passenger traffic at Florence Airport increasing by 5.2%, reflecting easier comps as last year traffic was impacted by Air France pilots’ strike. In addition, traffic benefited from the good performance of TAP’s connecting flight to Lisbon and additional flights to Madrid by Iberia. This was partially offset by a 2.5% decline in passenger traffic at Pisa Airport, mainly reflecting the reduction of operations by Pobeda. In addition, SAS airlines started operations at Florence airport, with three weekly flights to Copenhagen and Eurowings opened a new route to Dusseldorf, Germany.

 

Passenger traffic in Uruguay declined 2.1% YoY, although showing an improvement from the 6.2% decline in the previous quarter, mainly reflecting the combination of easier comps from the Easter holidays effect as discussed above, lower passenger traffic from Argentina reflecting weak macro conditions, and the cancellation of Avianca Colombia’s daily route to Bogotá, Colombia.

 

In Armenia, passenger traffic increased 8.9% YoY mainly due to the addition of several new routes and frequencies during 2018 and 2019, primarily to destinations in Russia, along with improved political conditions since 2H18. In Ecuador, traffic increased 2.1%, reflecting the start of operations of Jet Blue and Aeroméxico in Guayaquil, with seven weekly flights to Fort Lauderdale and three weekly flights to Ciudad de México, respectively. Moreover, COPA Airlines also increased frequencies at Guayaquil Airport. In Peru, passenger traffic increased 4.5% YoY.

 

Domestic passenger traffic, which accounted for 56.2% of total traffic, increased 8.7% YoY principally driven by growth of 22.1%, or 1.2 million passengers in Argentina, which more than offset the 10.4% decline in Brazil. International passenger traffic, which represented 34.3% of total traffic, posted a slight decline in the period, as increases of 8.9% in Armenia and, 7.6% in Ecuador, were offset by a decline of 5.5% in Argentina.

 

Cargo Volume

Cargo volume increased 6.6% YoY in 2Q19 mainly as a result of higher cargo volume in Brazil, which more than offset lower cargo in Argentina.

 

Aircraft Movements

Total aircraft movements declined 4.0% YoY, reflecting declines of 18.9% in Brazil and 8.5% in Uruguay, partially offset by growth of 1.8% in Italy and 1.3% in Ecuador.

 

Tables with detailed passenger traffic, cargo volume and aircraft movement information for each airport can be found on page 23 of this report.

Review of Consolidated Results

Results for AAP Airports, the five airports CAAP operates in Peru, and ECOGAL which operates the Galapagos Airport in Ecuador, are accounted for under the equity method.

 

Commencing 3Q18, the Company began reporting results of its Argentinean subsidiaries applying Hyperinflation Accounting, in accordance to IFRS rule IAS 29, as detailed on Section “Hyperinflation Accounting in Argentina” on page 20.

 

Revenues

Consolidated Revenues increased 3.9% YoY, or $15.5 million, to $412.6 million in 2Q19, while consolidated revenues excluding the impact of IAS 29 would have remained stable at $395.5 million. Growth of 16.5%, or $4.6 million, in Armenia resulted from higher fuel demand and increased construction service revenue due to runway infrastructure works. In Ecuador, revenues increased 12.8% YoY, or $2.8 million, mainly due to higher international passenger traffic and higher construction service revenues. By contrast, in Argentina, revenues were down 1.5% YoY, or $3.6 million, impacted by the 3.7% decline in aeronautical revenues and 11.7% in commercial revenues, reflecting lower passenger traffic and demand, partially offset by higher construction service revenues as a result of significant capex in the period. In Italy, revenues declined 7.0%, or $2.9 million, reflecting lower construction service revenues. In Brazil, revenues declined 6.2%, or $1.9 million, due to a 9.8% decline in passenger traffic, and to a lesser extent due to the 8.8% depreciation of the Brazilian real against the US dollar in the period.

 

Revenues in Argentina were down 1.5% YoY, or $3.6 million, (excluding IAS29) mainly impacted by: i) a mix-shift from international to domestic traffic which is linked to the local currency depreciation, and ii) a decline in commercial revenues, mainly due to lower cargo revenues from the drop in higher-margin imports together with lower Duty Free revenues from the decline in international traffic and overall lower demand. Revenues were also negatively impacted by the FX translation effect on local currency revenues resulting from the 86.6% Argentine peso average depreciation in the period, which more than offset higher overall passenger traffic. This was partially offset by a 32.1% YoY increase in construction service revenue reflecting higher capex in the period.

 

Revenues in Italy declined 7.0% YoY reflecting lower construction service revenues in the period. Excluding IFRIC 12, revenues in Italy remained stable at $36.9 million, primarily due to the positive results from commercial initiatives, partially offset by the 5.7% average depreciation of the euro against the US dollar in the period.

 

In Brazil, revenues declined 6.2%, or $1.9 million, impacted by the 8.8% quarterly average Brazilian real depreciation. By contrast, local currency revenues increased 2.2%, due to higher commercial revenues mainly from VIP lounges and advertising agreements, coupled with the increase in aeronautical fees granted in August 2018. This was partially offset by the 9.8% decline in passenger traffic due to the cancellation of operations by a Brazilian airline.

 

Revenues in Uruguay reached $27.1 million, mainly driven by the 4.0% in YoY traffic growth to international destinations other than Buenos Aires city airport (Aeroparque) at Carrasco Airport, coupled with the increase in passenger fees implemented in August 2018. This was offset the 19.0% YoY decline in lower-margin shuttle (“Puente aéreo”) passengers to Aeroparque, in Buenos Aires, and the decline in Duty Free shop revenues.

 

By contrast, in Armenia, revenues increased 16.5% YoY mainly driven by higher fuel demand, together with higher construction service revenues in the period, partially offset by the FX currency translation impact on aeronautical revenues from the 5.7% average depreciation of the euro against the US dollar. Revenues in Ecuador increased 12.8% YoY as a result of higher traffic in the period and the increase in aeronautical fees starting January 1, 2019, coupled with higher construction service revenue in the period.

 

Excluding construction services, consolidated revenues would have declined 3.6% YoY to $312.6 million on an ‘As Reported’ basis, and 7.2% to $301.0 million when also excluding the impact of IAS 29.

Aeronautical revenue accounted for 44.9% of total revenues and remained stable YoY at $185.4 million. Had IAS 29 not been applied, Aeronautical Revenues would have decreased 3.7% YoY, or $6.9 million, mainly reflecting declines of:

 

·7.3%, or $7.4 million, in Argentina as a result of the mix-shift from international to domestic traffic and the currency translation effect on domestic traffic from the 86.6% average currency devaluation in the period.

 

·7.3%, or $1.0 million in Brazil, impacted by the decline in passenger traffic, coupled with 8.8% quarterly average depreciation of the Brazilian real against the US dollar. In local currency, revenues increased 0.6% mainly reflecting the increase in aeronautical fees granted in August 2018, which more than offset the decline in passenger traffic.

 

By contrast, aeronautical revenues in Ecuador increased 9.7% YoY, or $1.6 million, primarily driven by growth in international passenger traffic at Guayaquil Airport.

 

Non-Aeronautical revenues accounted for 55.1% of total revenues, and increased 7.4% YoY, or $15.7 million, to $227.2 million. Had IAS 29 not been applied, Non-aeronautical revenues would have increased 2.5% YoY, or $5.3 million, mainly driven by:

 

§A 29.9%, or $21.7 million, increase in Construction Service revenue, mainly reflecting investments by $86.5 million in Argentina, and, to a lesser extent, investments in Armenia and Ecuador of $2.4 million and $1.4 million, respectively, partially offset by lower revenues in Italy.

 

§An 11.7%, or $16.2 million, decline in Commercial Revenues, to $121.9 million, mainly reflecting a decline of 21.7%, or $17.2 million, in Argentina as a result of lower cargo imports due to macro conditions, lower passenger demand, particularly in duty free, and the FX translation effect on domestic revenues from the Argentine peso depreciation. In addition, Brazil reported a 5.4%, or $0.9 million, decline in Commercial Revenues mainly reflecting currency depreciation, but increased 3.5% YoY in local currency, primarily due to an increase in VIP lounges and advertising revenues. By contrast, Commercial Revenues in Armenia increased 19.0%, or $2.6 million, mainly from higher fuel demand.

 

Excluding Construction Service revenue, non-aeronautical revenues would have declined 8.3% YoY to $127.2 million. Had IAS 29 not been applied, Non-aeronautical revenues excluding Construction Service revenue would have declined 11.8% YoY to $122.4 million.

Consolidated Operating Costs and Expenses

 

During 2Q19, Consolidated Operating Costs and Expenses increased 10.7% YoY, or $32.8 million, to $340.4 million. Had IAS 29 not been applied, Consolidated Operating Costs and Expenses would have increased 1.4% YoY, or $4.3 million, to $311.8 million, mainly reflecting higher construction service costs from capital investments in Argentina, Ecuador and Armenia, and, to a lesser extent, higher fuel costs in Armenia, which more than offset the effect of currency depreciation against the US dollar in Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay, and the decline in concession fees in both Argentina and Brazil.

 

Cost of Services rose 15.0% YoY, or $39.5 million, to $303.1 million. Excluding the IAS 29 impact in Argentina and a one-time $2.2 million gain in Italy from the positive outcome of a claim against the Ministry of Transport, Cost of services would have increased 5.6% YoY, or $14.6 million, reflecting the following increases:

 

§A 30.0%, or $21.7 million, increase in construction service costs, primarily due to an increase in Argentina of 32.1%, or $21.0 million, and, to a lower degree, increases of $2.3 million and $1.4 million in Armenia and Ecuador, respectively, reflecting higher capex in the period, partially offset by a $3.0 million decline in Italy.

 

§A 22.8%, or $1.9 million, increase in cost of fuel sold, reflecting higher fuel demand in Armenia.

 

§A 15.4%, or $2.2 million, in services and fees, primarily reflecting higher administrative fees in Ecuador arising from the concession extension granted in July 2018, and higher tariffs on utilities in Argentina.

 

This more than offset declines of:

 

§14.9%, or $6.9 million, in concession fees, mainly the result of a 13.4%, or $3.6 million, drop in Argentina related to the decline in revenues, and a decline of 31.8%, or $2.4 million, in concession fees in Brazil due to the depreciation of the Brazilian real against the US dollar, together with the impact of the change in the passenger curve by which the concession fee is calculated. By contrast, concession fees in Ecuador increased by 20.7%, or $1.5 million, reflecting the 5% increase in the concession fee agreed in July 2018.

 

§13.1%, or $4.6 million, in maintenance expenses, mainly as a result of lower expenses in Argentina and Brazil due to currency depreciation, and lower maintenance expenses due to easier comps at Ecuador and Uruguay, as 2Q18 was impacted by refurbishing and SISCA costs, respectively.

 

§4.5%, or $2.3 million, in salaries principally due to the benefit from the depreciation of the Argentine peso against the US dollar, partially offset by the additions made to the employee base to further enhance the passenger experience at the airports in Argentina, and, to a lesser extent, the depreciation of the Brazilian real and the Euro against the US dollar.

 

Excluding Construction Service cost, Cost of Services would have increased 6.4% YoY, or $12.3 million. When also excluding the impact of IAS29, Cost of services would have declined 4.8%, or $9.3 million. When also excluding the one-time benefit from the Fire Protection Fund claim, Cost of services would have declined 3.7%, or $7.0 million YoY.

 

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses (“SG&A”) declined 14.6% YoY, or $6.4 million, to $37.2 million in 2Q19 on an ‘As reported’ basis, and 17.8%, or $7.7 million, when excluding the impact of IAS 29, primarily reflecting the following declines:

 

§An 18.3%, or $2.3 million in taxes, mainly resulting from lower sales taxes due to lower revenues in Argentina;

 

§17.2%, or $1.8 million, in services and fees, reflecting a $0.8 million reduction in costs at the holding level due to legal fees in connection with the IPO and fees associated with sale of 25% of Corporación América Italia to Investment Corporation of Dubai in 2Q18;

 

§A 20.3%, or $1.7 million, in salaries and social security contributions mainly reflecting currency depreciation; and

 

§A $1.1 million in office expenses.

 

This more than offset a $1.6 million increase in bad debts, principally attributed to an increase of $1.0 million in Argentina, mainly reflecting higher bad debts from certain commercial tenants. In addition, CAAP’s Brazilian subsidiaries recorded a $0.5 million charge in connection with past due receivables related to commercial tenants.

 

Excluding Construction Service cost and the one-time benefit in 2Q19, Operating Costs and Expenses would have increased 3.3%, or $7.9 million, to $243.3 million. Had IAS 29 not been applied, comparable Operating Costs and Expenses Ex-IFRIC12 would have declined 6.4%, or $15.1 million YoY, to $220.3 million.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA excluding Construction Service

Adjusted EBITDA in 2Q19 declined 2.2% YoY to $118.5 million, with Adjusted EBITDA margin contracting 179 bps to 28.7% from 30.5% in 2Q18. Excluding Construction service margin, Adjusted EBITDA margin contracted 53 bps to 37.7%, from 37.2% in 2Q18.

 

Excluding the impact of IAS 29 in 2Q19, Adjusted EBITDA would have declined 6.6% YoY, or $8.0 million, to $113.1 million, mainly reflecting a 15.2%, or $12.0 million decline in Argentina, partially offset by a $3.2 million increase in Italy. Adjusted EBITDA margin contracted 191 bps YoY to 28.6%. Excluding both the impact from IAS 29 and construction service margin, Adjusted EBITDA margin would have expanded 19 bps to 37.4%, from 37.2% in 2Q18.

 

Adjusted EBITDA in 2Q19 was impacted by a one-time $2.2 million gain in Italy from the positive outcome of a claim against the Ministry of Transport. Excluding IAS29 and this one-time item, Adjusted EBITDA ex-IFRIC12 would have declined 8.6% YoY, or $10.4 million, to $110.2 million, and the margin would have contracted 56 bps to 36.6%. Margin contraction in Argentina, Ecuador and Armenia more than offset better margins in Italy and Uruguay.

Financial Income and Loss

CAAP reported a Net financial loss of $7.7 million in 2Q19 compared to a loss of $149.2 million in 2Q18. Financial income declined 76.3% to $11.8 million. Had IAS 29 not been applied, Financial income would have declined by 78.3%, or $37.9 million, to $10.8 million, mainly related to a decline of $33.3 million in Argentina, reflecting more difficult comps as in 2Q18 AA2000 recorded a gain due to the depreciation of the Argentine peso against the US dollar over assets held in US dollars.

 

During 2Q19, CAAP reported a “Financial Loss” of $12.3 million on an ‘As reported’ basis, or a loss of $39.4 million when excluding IAS 29 impact, compared with a loss of $198.9 million in the year-ago quarter, mainly attributed to foreign exchange expenses of $148.3 million in Argentina in the year-ago quarter, due to depreciation of the peso against the US dollar, in connection with its $400 million AA2000 bond.

Net Income and Net Income Attributable to Owners of the Parent

During 2Q19, CAAP reported Net Income for the Period of $55.4 million compared to a loss of $34.9 million in 2Q18. While Operating Income declined $17.6 million YoY, higher net income reflects lower financial expenses of $141.6 million and a $33.2 million decrease in income tax expense.

 

During 2Q19, the Company reported a Net Income Attributable to Owners of the Parent of $49.1 million and income per common share of $0.31, compared with a Net Loss Attributable to Owners of the Parent of $22.7 million in 2Q18 equivalent to loss per common share of $0.14 for the same period last year.

 

Consolidated Financial Position

As of June 30, 2019, cash and cash equivalents amounted to $221.5 million, a 13.2% decline from $255.0 million as of March 31, 2019. Total Debt at the close of the quarter declined to $1,136.2, from $1,137.3 million as of March 31, 2019. An amount of $665.3 million, or 57.7% of total debt is denominated in U.S. dollars, while $306.1, or 26.9%, is denominated in Brazilian reals and $174.8, or 15.4%, is in Euros.

 

The Net Debt to LTM EBITDA ratio stood at 2.12x as of June 2019, compared with Net Debt to EBITDA of 2.04x as of March 2019.

Review of Segment Results

 

Argentina

The Company’s main concession in Argentina, AA2000, accounted for approximately 9.5 million passengers, or 48.0%, of CAAP’s 19.8 million total passengers worldwide served during the quarter. Aeroparque and Ezeiza, the country’s two largest airports, had approximately 2.7 million and 2.8 million passengers in 2Q19, respectively.

 

Starting in 3Q18, reported numbers are presented applying Hyperinflation accounting for the Company’s Argentinean subsidiaries, in accordance with IAS 29, as explained above.

 

Argentina represented 61.5% of the Company’s 2Q19 consolidated revenues and 59.2% of its adjusted EBITDA, excluding the effect of IAS 29.

 

The following table presents the impact from Hyperinflation accounting on 2Q19 under the column ‘IAS 29’, while the column “2Q19 ex IAS 29” presents 2Q19 results calculated without the impact from Hyperinflation accounting. The impact of IAS 29 is presented only for AA2000, the Company’s largest subsidiary in Argentina which accounted for 96.0%, 98.6% and 99.2% of passenger traffic, revenues and Adjusted EBITDA of the Argentina segment in 2Q19.

Passenger Traffic in Argentina rose 12.3% YoY in 2Q19, with domestic traffic increasing 22.1%, partially offset by a 5.5% decline in international traffic reflecting continued challenging macro conditions in the country, although showed an improvement from the 6.6% decline reported in the previous quarter. Domestic traffic benefitted from the addition of new routes, low cost carriers and higher promotional activity.

 

During the quarter, low cost carrier Flybondi continued to add new domestic routes connecting Neuquén Airport with Mendoza and Córdoba airports, Salta Airport with Córdoba and Rosario airports, and Tucumán Airport with Rosario Airport. In addition, low cost airline JetSmart begun domestic operations with routes from El Palomar Airport to Mendoza, Córdoba, Tucumán, Iguazú and Salta airports and from Salta Airport to Neuquén, Córdoba and Mendoza airports, from Mendoza Airport with Tucumán Airport, and from Neuquén Airport to Córdoba and Salta airports, further increasing connectivity in the country. In addition, American Airlines opened a new international route from Córdoba Airport to Miami, United States.

 

By contrast, cargo volume was down 3.3% YoY, reflecting the continued challenging macro environment, although showed an improvement when compared to 1Q19, while total aircraft movements remained stable during the period.

 

Revenues increased 5.5% YoY, or $13.5 million, to $260.2 million in 2Q19. Excluding the impact of IAS 29, revenues would have been $243.1 million, down 1.5%, or $3.6 million YoY, primarily reflecting higher construction revenue in the quarter due to higher capex, partially offset by a decline in aeronautical and commercial revenues, mainly due to a mix-shift from international to domestic traffic, the FX translation effect on local currency revenues from the sharp Argentine peso depreciation that took place last year (which resulted in a 86.6% average peso depreciation in the period), and lower commercial demand.

 

Page 12 of 35 

 

 

·Aeronautical revenue remained stable YoY on an ‘As reported’ basis, but declined 7.3%, or $7.4 million, when excluding the impact of IAS 29, primarily reflecting the continued mix-shift from international to domestic traffic, together with and the currency translation effect on the share of local currency denominated revenues.

 

·Commercial revenues fell 15.6%, or $12.4 million on an ‘As reported’ basis, and 21.7%, or 17.2 million, excluding the impact of IAS 29, as the difficult macro environment resulted in lower cargo activity and a decline in duty free shop sales, together with the impact of the Argentine peso depreciation on the share of local currency denominated revenues.

 

·Construction Service revenue increased 40.6% YoY, or $26.6 million, mainly reflecting higher capex in the period. Had IAS 29 not been adopted, Construction Service Revenue would have increased 32.1%, or $21.0 million YoY, in line with the capex program announced for 2019.

 

Excluding construction service revenue, total Argentina revenue in 2Q19 decreased 7.2% YoY, or $13.1 million, to $168.1 million, with a decrease of 13.6%, or $24.7 million, had IAS 29 rule not been adopted in the period.

 

Cost of services increased 26.4% YoY, or $41.8 million, to $200.6 million. Had IAS 29 not been adopted, cost of services would have increased 9.3%, or $14.7 million, primarily due to an increase of 32.1%, or $21.0 million, in Construction Service costs reflecting significantly higher capex in the quarter. Excluding construction service costs and IAS29 impact, Cost of services would have declined 6.8% YoY, or $6.3 million, driven mainly by the following:

 

·A 13.4%, or $3.6 million, decline in concession fees resulting from lower revenues, and

 

·A 12.5%, or $3.3 million, decline in maintenance expenses, mainly denominated in local currency, reflecting currency depreciation in the quarter,

 

·An 11.2%, or $2.8 million, decline in salaries and social security contributions which benefitted from the Argentine peso depreciation, partially offset by the additions made to the employee base to further enhance the passenger experience at the airports.

 

·A 48.2%, or $1.2 million, increase in office expenses, reflecting the classification of IATA and SITA expenses as Cost of services, instead of SG&A.

 

SG&A declined by 21.0% YoY, or $4.3 million, to $16.2 million in 2Q19. Had IAS29 not been implemented, SG&A would have declined 27.7%, or $5.7 million, mainly due to reductions of:

 

·19.1%, or $2.2 million, in turnover taxes related to the decline in revenues coupled with lower banking transaction taxes,

 

·49.1%, or $1.8 million in salaries and social contributions, mainly benefitting from currency depreciation, and

 

·$1.3 million in office expenses reflecting the classification of IATA and SITA expenses as Cost of services, instead of SG&A.

 

These declines were partially offset by an increase of $1.0 million in bad debts, reflecting higher past due receivables, mainly from commercial tenants.

 

Adjusted Segment EBITDA in Argentina declined 8.4% YoY, or $6.6 million, to $72.3 million in 2Q19, with Adjusted Segment EBITDA margin Ex-IFRIC12 down by 55 bps to 43.0%. Had IAS 29 not been adopted, Adjusted Segment EBITDA would have declined 15.2%, or $12.0 million, with Adjusted EBITDA margin EX-IFRIC12 contracting 80 bps to 42.7% in 2Q19.

 

During 2Q19 CAAP made capital expenditures ex-IAS 29 of $86.8 million primarily for the construction of the new departure terminal building and multilevel parking at Ezeiza Airport, the landfill and construction of a new park on Costanera Avenue at Aeroparque Airport. Investments also include the construction of new terminal buildings at Comodoro Rivadavia Iguazú and Jujuy airports, the refurbishment and lighting of the runway and taxiways at Córdoba Airport, the expansion of the terminal building at Bariloche, Mar del Plata and Esquel airports, as well as various capex programs across other airports of the concession.

Passenger Traffic in Italy remained stable YoY in 2Q19. Traffic at Florence Airport increased 5.2% reflecting easier comps as last year traffic was impacted by Air France pilots’ strike. In addition, traffic benefited from the Easter Holiday effect together with the good performance of TAP’s connecting flight to Lisbon and the additional flights to Madrid by Iberia. This was partially offset by a 2.5% decline in passenger traffic at Pisa Airport, mainly reflecting the reduction of operations by Pobeda, offsetting increased traffic by newly opened route by Air Arabia Maroc to Casablanca, Morocco. In addition, SAS airlines started operations at Florence airport, with three weekly flights to Copenhagen, and Eurowings opened a new route to Dusseldorf, Germany. Cargo volume was up 1.8%, while total aircraft movements increased 1.9% YoY.

 

Revenues in 2Q19 declined 7.0% YoY, or $2.9 million, to $39.1 million, principally reflecting a decline in construction service revenue, due to lower capex in the quarter. Excluding construction service revenue, revenues remained relatively flat YoY at $36.9 million.

 

·Aeronautical revenues remained stable at $26.6 million, mainly due to the effect of the depreciation of the Euro against the US dollar during the period. In local currency, aeronautical revenues were up 5.8% despite flat traffic volume, primarily reflecting lower marketing support expenses in the quarter due to lower passenger traffic and a new agreement with a dominant airline at Pisa Airport, coupled with higher revenues from the increase in the Passenger with Reduced Mobility fee granted in February 2019 and the increase in passenger use fees at Pisa Airport in April 2019.

 

·Commercial revenues increased 3.7%, or $0.3 million in an ‘As reported’ basis, and 10.0% when measured in local currency, mainly due to higher revenues from new agreements with car rentals at Pisa Airport together with VIP lounge and F&B revenues, benefitting from new tenants at both Pisa and Florence airports.

·Construction service revenue declined $3.0 million, due to lower capex in the quarter.

 

Cost of services declined 19.0% YoY, or $5.8 million, impacted by a one-time benefit of $2.2 million, reflecting the positive outcome of a claim against the Ministry of Transport regarding the Fire Brigade Protection Fund dispute. Excluding this one-time item, cost of services would have declined 11.7%, or $3.6 million, due to lower construction service cost and currency depreciation in the quarter.

 

SG&A declined 3.1% YoY, or $0.1 million, mainly as of the depreciation of the Euro against the US dollar. In local currency, SG&A increased 2.8%, or $0.1 million, primarily reflecting the recognition of the amortization of leased assets under IFRS16 lease accounting standard.

 

Adjusted Segment EBITDA in Italy increased 29.6% YoY, or $3.2 million. Excluding construction services and the abovementioned one-time item, Adjusted Segment EBITDA would have increased 8.6% YoY, or $0.9 million, to $11.7 million, with Adjusted Segment EBITDA margin ex-IFRIC12 expanding 247 basis points to 30.4% from 28.0% in 2Q18.

 

During 2Q19 CAAP made capital expenditures for $4.7 million in Italy, primarily on Master plan development in Florence Airport and new equipment at Pisa Airport.

Passenger Traffic in Brazil declined 9.8% YoY, to 4.3 million passengers in 2Q19, primarily reflecting the cessation of operations of Avianca Brasil and the reduction in less profitable frequencies by a Latin American international Airline, as it seeks to optimize domestic operations at Brasilia Airport. Domestic and transit traffic declined 10.4% and 10.3% respectively, offset by a 12.2% increase in international traffic, according to the new traffic count methodology applied by ANAC since June 2018. Based on the prior methodology, international traffic would have increased 34.7% YoY at Brasilia airport, reflecting the routes to Miami and Orlando opened by Gol Airlines in November 2018 and the new direct flight to Buenos Aires opened in December 2018. In addition, in June 2019 Gol airlines started a direct flight to Cancún, Mexico, departing from Brasilia airport. Importantly, Gol airlines announced the addition of several frequencies over the coming months, in line with its strategy of expanding operations at Brasilia airport, while LATAM Airlines announced the opening of new international routes from Brasilia Airport to Lima, Perú; Asunción, Paraguay and Santiago de Chile, Chile, starting October 2019. Cargo volume was up 52%, while total aircraft movements declined 18.9% YoY.

 

Revenues in 2Q19 declined 6.2% YoY, or $1.9 million, impacted by the 8.8% depreciation of the Brazilian real during the period. In local currency, however, revenues increased 2.0%.

 

·Aeronautical revenues declined 7.3% YoY, or $1.0 million, but were up 0.6% in local currency, driven by a 5.8% YoY increase in tariffs at Brasilia Airport starting August 2018 coupled with higher revenues from the 34.7% increase in international passengers, which more than offset the decline in passenger traffic.

 

·Commercial revenues declined 5.4%, or $0.9 million, impacted by the depreciation of the Brazilian Real against the US dollar, which more than offset higher commercial tenants revenues together with higher cargo volume and an increase in VIP lounge revenues reflecting the new agreements with airlines and Bradesco entered into during 4Q18.

 

Cost of services declined 10.6% YoY, or $2.9 million, to $24.3 million, mainly due to the depreciation of the Brazilian real against the US dollar. Lower concession fee charges resulting from a change in the passenger curve used to calculate the amortization of the intangible asset introduced in September 2018 also contributed to the decline in cost of services.

SG&A declined 4.5% YoY, or $0.2 million, mainly reflecting the depreciation of the Brazilian real, but increased 3.0% in local currency, impacted by higher bad debt provisions in connection with certain commercial tenants.

 

Adjusted Segment EBITDA in Brazil increased 18.0% YoY, or $0.5 million, to $3.0 million in the quarter, mainly reflecting the reduction in the concession fee amount. Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded 220 bps to 10.7% from 8.5% in the year-ago quarter.

Uruguay

Uruguay represented 6.8% of the Company’s consolidated 2Q19 revenues and 10.7% of its adjusted EBITDA, excluding IAS 29. CAAP operates two airports in Uruguay, General Cesáreo Berisso International Airport (“Carrasco Airport”) and Carlos A. Curbelo Airport (“Punta del Este Airport”). During 2Q19, our Uruguayan airports had approximately 0.5 million passengers.

Passenger Traffic in Uruguay declined 2.1% YoY, although showing a sequential improvement from the 6.2% decline in the previous quarter, mainly reflecting easier comps from the Easter holidays effect discussed above, coupled with Winter holidays, which this year started in June while last year started in July. In addition, lower passenger traffic from Argentina reflecting macro conditions, and the cancellation of Avianca Colombia’s daily route to Bogotá, Colombia, since March 2019, also contributed to the reduction.

 

Revenues in 2Q19 remained flat YoY at $27.1 million.

 

·Aeronautical revenues increased 2.1% YoY, or $0.3 million, mainly driven by an increase of 4.0% in traffic to international destinations other than Aeroparque, in Buenos Aires, at Carrasco Airport, further supported by an increase to the passenger fees implemented in August 2018. This more than offset the 19.0% decline in lower-margin shuttle (“Puente aéreo”) passengers to Aeroparque, in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

 

·Commercial revenues declined 2.0%, or $0.2 million, reflecting an 8.3%, or $0.2 million, decline in Duty Free revenues, related to lower passenger traffic and demand, and a decline in Parking revenues of 16.9%, or $0.1 million, due to lower demand, particularly by Argentine passengers, and the impact of the 15.9% average depreciation of the Uruguayan peso against the US dollar. This was partially offset by a 12%, or $0.1 million, increase in VIP lounge revenues, benefiting from new agreements signed during the quarter.

 

Page 18 of 35 

 

 

Cost of services were down 6.1% YoY, or $0.9 million, to $13.5 million, driven by declines of $1.0 million in maintenance, primarily reflecting the temporary suspension of SISCA expenses, and $0.5 million in amortization and depreciation in the period, since assets from the Punta del Este Airport were completely amortized as of March 2019, prior to the subsequent extension of this Concession. This was partially offset by an 11.0%, or $0.5 million, YoY increase in salaries and social security contributions, reflecting the impact of the new variable compensation policy, which more than offset the depreciation of the Uruguayan peso against the US dollar.

 

SG&A increased 6.8% YoY, or $0.2 million, to $3.8 million YoY, due to higher salaries resulting from the introduction of the new variable compensation policy, further supported by with the depreciation of the Uruguayan peso against the US dollar and a $0.3 million bad debt at Punta del Este airport, reflecting past due aircraft fees receivables. This was partially offset by lower services and fees, reflecting easier comps as in 2Q18 was impacted by a $0.1 million charge related to a corporate governance project, together with lower utilities fees, resulting from the implementation of a solar energy generation system.

 

Adjusted Segment EBITDA in Uruguay increased 2.2%, or $0.3 million, to $12.1 million, with Adjusted Segment EBITDA margin Ex-IFRIC12 expanding 91 bps to 45.2% from 44.3% in the year-ago quarter.

 

During 2Q19 CAAP made capital expenditures for $5.3 million in Uruguay, primarily to upgrade to LED lighting systems to take advantage of fiscal benefits and perimeter security at Carrasco Airport.

Aeropuertos Argentina 2000 S.A. announced shareholders meeting’s results 

On July 25, 2019, our subsidiary Aeropuertos Argentina 2000 S.A. held a shareholders meeting which unanimously resolved the payment of cash dividends between the shareholders classes A, B, C and D, according to their holdings, for an amount of $50.0 million, or its equivalent in Argentine pesos (which at the date of the shareholders meeting amounted to AR$ 2,143.5 million). Additionally, the payment of dividends on the preferred shares for the amount of AR$ 118.3 million was approved, payable in additional preferred shares. The value was calculated based on the value of the preferred shares, as adjusted by inflation, which amounted to AR$ 5,914.0 million.

The principal amount under the credit facility agreements shall be repaid in nine quarterly equal and regular installments, the first one being payed as from twelve months from the borrowing date. Proceeds shall be applied to the construction of infrastructure works in the airports under the AA2000 concession.

 

Hyperinflation Accounting in Argentina 

Following the categorization of Argentina as a country with a three-year cumulative inflation rate greater than 100%, the country is considered highly inflationary in accordance with IFRS. Consequently, starting July 1, 2018, the Company reports results of its Argentinean subsidiaries applying IFRS rule IAS 29. IAS 29 requires that results of operations in hyperinflationary economies are reported as if these economies were highly inflationary as of January 1, 2018, and thus year-to-date results should be restated adjusting for the change in general purchasing power of the local currency, using official indices, before converting the local amounts at the closing rate of the period (i.e. December 31, 2018 closing rate for 2018 results). For comparison purposes, the impact of adopting IAS 29 in Aeropuertos Argentina 2000 (“AA2000”), the Company’s largest subsidiary in Argentina which accounted for 96.0%, 98.6% and 99.2% of passenger traffic, revenues and Adjusted EBITDA, respectively, of the Argentina segment in 1Q19, is presented separately in each of the applicable sections of this earnings release, in a column denominated “IAS 29”.

Use of Non-IFRS Financial Measures

This announcement includes certain references to Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted EBITDA excluding Construction Service and Adjusted EBITDA Margin excluding Construction service, as well as Net Debt:

 

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as income for the period before financial income, financial loss, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization.

 

Adjusted EBITDA Margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by total revenues.

 

Adjusted EBITDA excluding Construction Service (“Adjusted EBITDA ex-IFRIC”) is defined as income for the period before construction services revenue and cost, financial income, financial loss, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization.

 

Adjusted EBITDA Margin excluding Construction Service (“Adjusted EBITDA Margin ex-IFRIC12”) excludes the effect of IFRIC 12 with respect to the construction or improvements to concessioned assets and is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA excluding Construction Service revenue and cost, by total revenues less Construction service revenue.

 

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted EBITDA excluding Construction Service and Adjusted EBITDA Margin excluding Construction Service are not measures recognized under IFRS and should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, consolidated net income for the year as determined in accordance with IFRS or as indicators of our operating performance from continuing operations. Accordingly, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on this information and should note that these measures as calculated by the Company, may differ materially from similarly titled measures reported by other companies. We believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA excluding Construction Service enhances an investor’s understanding of our performance and are useful for investors to assess our operating performance by excluding certain items that we believe are not representative of our core business. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA excluding Construction Service are useful because they allow us to more effectively evaluate our operating performance and compare the results of our operations from period to period without regard to our financing methods, capital structure or income taxes and construction services (when applicable).

 

Net debt is calculated by deducting “Cash and cash equivalents” from total financial debt.

 

Figures ex-IAS 29 result from dividing nominal Argentine pesos for the Argentine Segment, by the average foreign exchange rate of the Argentine Peso against the US Dollar in the period. Percentage variations ex-IAS 29 figures compare results as presented in the prior year quarter before IAS 29 came into effect, against ex-IAS 29 results for this quarter as described above. For comparison purposes the impact of adopting IAS 29 in Aeropuertos Argentina 2000, the Company’s largest subsidiary in Argentina, is presented separately in each of the applicable sections of this earnings release, in a column denominated “IAS 29”. The impact from “Hyperinflation Accounting in Argentina” is described in more detail page 20 of this report.

 

Definitions and Concepts

Commercial Revenues: CAAP derives commercial revenue principally from fees resulting from warehouse usage (which includes cargo storage, stowage and warehouse services and related international cargo services), services and retail stores, duty free shops, car parking facilities, catering, hangar services, food and beverage services, retail stores, including royalties collected from retailers’ revenue, and rent of space, advertising, fuel, airport counters, VIP lounges and fees collected from other miscellaneous sources, such as telecommunications, car rentals and passenger services.

Construction Service revenue and cost: Investments related to improvements and upgrades to be performed in connection with concession agreements are treated under the intangible asset model established by IFRIC 12. As a result, all expenditures associated with investments required by the concession agreements are treated as revenue generating activities given that they ultimately provide future benefits, and subsequent improvements and upgrades made to the concession are recognized as intangible assets based on the principles of IFRIC 12. The revenue and expense are recognized as profit or loss when the expenditures are performed. The cost for such additions and improvements to concession assets is based on actual costs incurred by CAAP in the execution of the additions or improvements, considering the investment requirements in the concession agreements. Through bidding processes, the Company contracts third parties to carry out such construction or improvement services. The amount of revenues for these services is equal to the amount of costs incurred plus a reasonable margin, which is estimated at an average of 3.0% to 5.0%.
