"Our string of outstanding results continued into the second quarter," said Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian Airlines president and CEO.  "These results have come courtesy of strong demand for the Hawai'i vacation, low fuel prices, moderate industry capacity, and an excellent job done by my colleagues in finding new ways to strengthen our performance.  My thanks go to all of Hawaiian's employees who contributed to our terrific financial and operational performance."

Statistical information, as well as a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures, can be found in the accompanying tables.

(a)

The other components of net benefit cost are required to be presented in the income statement separately from the service cost component and outside a subtotal of income from operations, if one is presented.  Accounting Standard Update 2017-07 (ASU 2017-07) is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2017, with early adoption only permitted for the Company in the first quarter of 2017, provided all provisions of the ASU are adopted. The Company early adopted this standard during the first quarter of 2017. The adoption of ASU 2017-07 resulted in a reclassification of $5.1 million and $10.2 million from wages and benefits to other components of net periodic benefit cost on the Company's consolidated statement of operations for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively.

Economic Fuel Expense

(in thousands, except per-gallon amounts) (unaudited)

 

The Company believes that economic fuel expense is a good measure of the effect of fuel prices on its business as it most closely approximates the net cash outflow associated with the purchase of fuel for its operations in a period. The Company defines economic fuel expense as GAAP fuel expense plus losses/(gains) realized through actual cash (receipts)/payments received from or paid to hedge counterparties for fuel hedge derivative contracts settled during the period.

Non-GAAP Financial Reconciliation

(in thousands, except per share and CASM data) (unaudited)

The Company evaluates its financial performance utilizing various GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures, including net income, diluted net income per share, CASM, PRASM, RASM, Passenger Revenue per RPM and EBITDAR. Pursuant to Regulation G, the Company has included the following reconciliation of reported non-GAAP financial measures to comparable financial measures reported on a GAAP basis. The adjustments are described below:

  • Changes in fair value of derivative contracts, net of tax, are based on market prices for open contracts as of the end of the reporting period. This line item includes the unrealized amounts of fuel and interest rate derivatives (not designated as hedges) that will settle in future periods and the reversal of prior period unrealized amounts.  The Company believes that excluding the impact of these derivative adjustments helps investors analyze the Company's operational performance and compare its results to other airlines in the periods presented below.
  • Loss on extinguishment of debt, net of tax, is excluded to help investors analyze the Company's operational performance and compare its results to other airlines in the periods presented below.
  • The collective bargaining charge related to (1) a one-time payment to reduce the future 401K employer contribution for certain pilot groups, and (2) a one-time true up of the pilot vacation accrual at the new negotiated contract rates. The loss on sale of aircraft was a result of a sale-leaseback transaction covering three Boeing 767 aircraft as part of the planned exit from its 767 fleet. These one-time charges will have no impact on CASM excluding fuel and special items as they are considered special items by the Company and are not expected to represent ongoing expenses. The Company believes that excluding such special items helps investors analyze the Company's operational performance and compare its results to other airlines in the periods presented below.

Operating Costs per Available Seat Mile (CASM)

The Company has separately listed in the table below its fuel costs per ASM and non-GAAP unit costs, excluding fuel and special items.  These amounts are included in CASM, but for internal purposes the Company consistently uses cost metrics that exclude fuel and special items (if applicable) to measure and monitor its costs.

(a)

The other components of net benefit cost are required to be presented in the income statement separately from the service cost component and outside a subtotal of income from operations, if one is presented. Accounting Standard Update 2017-07 (ASU 2017-07) is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2017, with early adoption only permitted for the Company in the first quarter of 2017, provided all provisions of the ASU are adopted. The Company early adopted this standard during the first quarter of 2017. The adoption of ASU 2017-07 resulted in a reclassification of $5.1 million and $10.2 million from wages and benefits to other components of net periodic benefit cost on the Company's consolidated statement of operations for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively.

(a)

The Company expects to incur charges related to the termination of its Salaried & IAM Merged Pension Plan and the settlement of a portion of its outstanding other post-retirement medical plan obligation with its pilots, which are considered special items by the Company and are not expected to represent ongoing expenses to the Company.  Excluding such special items helps investors analyze the Company's core operational performance and more readily compare its results to other airlines in the periods presented above.

Pre-tax margin

The Company excludes unrealized gains from fuel derivative contracts, losses on extinguishment of debt, and special items from pre-tax margin for the same reasons as described above.

Leverage ratio

The Company uses adjusted total debt, including aircraft rent, in addition to long-term adjusted debt and capital leases, to represent long-term financial obligations. The Company excludes unrealized (gains) losses from fuel derivative contracts, losses on extinguishment of debt, and special items from earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and rent (EBITDAR) for the reasons as described above.  Management believes this metric is helpful to investors in assessing the Company's overall debt.
