On Thursday (June 6, 2024), Transat A.T., Inc. reported their fiscal second quarter financial results for the period ending April 30, 2024.  The carrier reported a second quarter net loss of $54.4 million or ($1.40) per share on a year-over-year increase in revenue of 11.8 percent to $973.2 million.  At the close of the period, Transat had cash and cash equivalents totaling $528.9 million, while  customer deposits for future travel stood at 896.9 million, up 3.0 percent compared to fiscal Q2 2023.


In Thursday’s announcement, Transat’s Chief Executive Officer, Annick Guérard, said,


“Transat delivered double-digit revenue growth for a second consecutive quarter on the strength of increased customer traffic.  On the profitability side, adjusted EBITDA declined to $38 million in the second quarter due to well-documented industry-wide and company-specific issues.”


“We are fully prepared from an operational standpoint for the summer season. As such, we recently completed the process of bringing in-house passenger and ramp services at Montreal-Trudeau International Airport to enhance the customer journey. Additionally, with the launch of phase one of our commercial joint venture with Porter announced yesterday, we will benefit from additional leverage to optimize our partnership. Finally, in the coming weeks, we will complete the reception of seven aircraft, including four A321LRs that represent the cornerstone of Transat's fleet and growth strategy.”


Also commenting on the company’ second quarter results, Transat’s Chief Financial Officer, Jean-François Pruneau, added,


“We diligently continued to deleverage our balance sheet in the second quarter, reimbursing subordinated debt of $36 million and raising total loan repayments to approximately $110 million in the last three quarters.  We also extended the maturity of the secured debt from April 2025 to February 2026 to provide Transat with added flexibility to secure a refinancing agreement.”
