12.20.11 Cebu Pacific Fundamentals


The company generated revenue of 24.5B for the nine months ended Sept 30,2011. If we annualize this, we will have a projected 32.6B of revenue for 2011 (24.5B/3*4)

32.6B(estimated) is better than the revenue on 2010 was only 29.1B.

This increase was primarily due to the 12.8% growth in passenger volume to 8.7 million from 7.7 million last year driven by the increased number of flights and higher seat load factor of 87% in 2011.
Number of flights went up by 8.7% year on year as a result of the increase in the average number of aircraft operated for the period to 32.6 aircraft in the nine months ended September 30, 2011

However, expense grew faster than revenue. Pls refer to picture below.

Flying Operation is part of the “EXPENSE”. I just presented here to show how this single line item impacts the cost of operation.
Expense/Revenue = 22.2B / 24.5B = 91%
Expense accounted for 91% of revenue for 9M2011 as compared to only 78% on

7.3% increase in Long-Term Debt (including Current Portion)
