GOL announces Investor Update

SÃO PAULO, July 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — GOL Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes S.A. (NYSE: GOL and B3: GOLL4), (“GOL” or “Company”), Brazil’s largest domestic airline, provides an Investor Update. All information is presented in Brazilian Reais (R$). The information below is preliminary and unaudited.

The operational resumption that started in the middle of 2Q21 is expected to continue at an increasing pace as the population’s immunization intensifies, and as we approach the summer season, therefore, GOL’s current capacity planning scenario for 2H21 assumes a 46% increase over 2H20. To adapt costs to current levels of sales and demand, GOL will operate 102 aircraft in its network at the end of the period (versus 110 previously projected), which will represent 133% of the average fleet operated in 2H20 and 56% higher than 1H21. Revenue for the six-month period ending December 31, 2021 is expected to increase approximately 85% compared to the same period last year.

GOL expects to end 2H21 with R$4.2 billion in liquidity (versus R$4.5 billion previously projected) and R$15.3 billion in adjusted net debt (versus R$14.8 billion previously projected). Several important initiatives are relevant to ensure that the Company maintains liquidity at the levels expected for the end of 2021.

The future events referred to in these forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, contingencies and other factors, many of which are beyond GOL’s control, that may cause actual results, performance or events to differ materially from those expressed or implied in these statements. These forward-looking statements are based on numerous assumptions regarding GOL’s present and future business strategies and the environment in which GOL will operate in the future and are not a guarantee of future performance. Such forward-looking statements speak only as at the date on which they are made. None of GOL or any of its affiliates, officers, directors, employees and agents undertakes any duty or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except to the extent required by law.

Non-GAAP Measures
To be consistent with industry practice, GOL discloses so-called non-GAAP financial measures which are not recognized under IFRS or U.S. GAAP, including “Net Debt”, “Adjusted Net Debt”, “total liquidity” and “EBITDA”. The Company’s management believes that disclosure of non-GAAP measures provides useful information to investors, financial analysts and the public in their review of its operating performance and their comparison of its operating performance to the operating performance of other companies in the same industry and other industries. However, these non-GAAP items do not have standardized meanings and may not be directly comparable to similarly-titled items adopted by other companies. Potential investors should not rely on information not recognized under IFRS as a substitute for the GAAP measures of earnings or liquidity in making an investment decision.
