The following financial information, unless otherwise indicated, is presented in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

Unless otherwise stated, all comparisons with prior periods refer to the fourth quarter of 2017 (4Q17).
The financial information included in this press release is preliminary as the Company has not yet issued its audited financial statements and may differ from those results. During the course of the preparation of the financial statements and related notes and our year-end audit, additional items that would require material adjustments to the preliminary financial information included in this press release may be identified.
OPERATING AND FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS
|§||Copa Holdings reported a net loss of US$156.0 million for 4Q18 or a loss per share of US$3.67, as compared to net profit of US$101.4 million or earnings per share of US$2.39 in 4Q17. Excluding special items, which for 4Q18 include a previously announced one-time, non-cash fleet impairment charge of US$188.6 million, and a noncash US$11.4 million-dollar loss associated with foreign currency translational effect which was booked as a gain in the 2017 restated financial results, the Company would have reported a net profit of US$44.0 million, or adjusted EPS of US$1.04, compared to an adjusted net profit of US$89.5 million or adjusted EPS of US$2.11 in 4Q17.|
|§||For full year 2018, net profit came in at US$88.1 million or EPS of US$2.07, compared to a net profit of US$364.0 million or earnings per share of US$8.58 for full year 2017. Excluding special items, which for 2018 include a one-time, non-cash fleet impairment charge of US$188.6 million, Copa Holdings would have reported an adjusted net profit of US$276.7 million or EPS of US$6.52, compared to an adjusted net profit of US$349.9 million or adjusted EPS of US$8.25 for full year 2017.|
|§||In 4Q18, the Company had an operating loss of US$129.7 million. Excluding special items, which for 4Q18 include a one-time, non-cash fleet impairment charge of US$188.6 million, the Company would have reported an Operating profit of US$58.9 million, compared to an operating profit of US$110.8 million in 4Q17. The adjusted operating margin for 4Q18 came in at 9.0%, compared to 16.4% in 4Q17.|
|§||For full year 2018, the Company reported operating profit of US$145.0 million. Excluding special items, which for 2018 include a one-time, non-cash fleet impairment charge of US$188.6 million, the Company would have reported an operating profit of US$333.7 million, representing a decrease of 21.3% over operating profit of US$424.0 million for full year 2017, mostly due to softer yields, and higher jet fuel prices. Excluding special items, operating margin for full year 2018 came in at 12.5%.|
|§||Total revenues for 4Q18 decreased 2.7% to US$656.1 million. Yield per passenger mile decreased 7.7% to 11.8 cents, mostly due to currency weakness in Brazil and Argentina. RASM came in at 10.2 cents, or 7.7% below 4Q17.|
|§||For 4Q18, consolidated passenger traffic grew 4.9% while consolidated capacity grew 5.5%. As a result, consolidated load factor for the quarter decreased 0.4 percentage points to 82.8%.

|§||Operating cost per available seat mile, excluding special items (Adjusted CASM) increased 0.5%, from 9.2 cents in 4Q17 to 9.3 cents in 4Q18. Adjusted CASM excluding fuel costs decreased 5.8% from 6.6 cents in 4Q17 to 6.2 cents in 4Q18, mainly as a result of fewer expenses related to maintenance, depreciation and wages, salaries and benefits, partly offset by higher airport facilities and handling charges, as well as flight operation expenses.|
|§||Cash, short-term and long-term investments ended 2018 at US$858.4 million, representing 32% of the last twelve months’ revenues.|
|§||Copa Holdings ended the year with a consolidated fleet of 105 aircraft – 4 Boeing 737MAX9s, 68 Boeing 737-800s, 14 Boeing 737-700s, and 19 Embraer 190s.|

MANAGEMENT’S COMMENTS ON 4Q18 RESULTS
Our fourth quarter results reflect a softer demand environment, driven by yield weakness, especially in Brazil and Argentina. We also faced higher fuel prices, which put additional pressure on our margins. On the positive side, we continued reaping the benefits of savings initiatives and efficiency efforts, which allowed us to achieve our lowest yearly unit costs ever. Also, in terms of our product delivery, we had a solid quarter to close an outstanding year, for which we were recognized as the most on-time airline in the world.
Consolidated operating revenues decreased 2.7% to US$656.1 million during the quarter on capacity growth of 5.5%. Load factor came in at 82.8%, or 0.4 percentage points below 4Q17, while yields came in at 11.8 cents, or 7.7% lower than 4Q17. As a result, passenger revenues per ASM (PRASM) decreased 8.2% from 10.7 cents in 4Q17 to 9.8 cents in 4Q18.
Operating expenses for 4Q18 increased 39.5% to US$785.8 million, which includes the one-time, non-cash fleet impairment charge of US$188.6 million. Excluding this item, operating expenses would have come in at US$597.2 million, or 6.0% above 4Q17. Excluding fuel costs and the impairment charge, unit costs decreased 5.8% to 6.2 cents.
Aircraft fuel expense increased 23.0% or US$36.6 million compared to 4Q17, as a result of higher jet fuel prices and increased capacity. The Company’s effective jet fuel price increased 17.5%, from an average of US$2.03 per gallon in 4Q17 to US$2.38 per gallon in 4Q18. The Company had no outstanding fuel hedge contracts.
The Company recorded a non-operating expense of US$22.2 million for 4Q18 compared to a non-operating profit of US$2.0 million for 4Q17. Non-operating expense for 4Q18 is mostly comprised of a US$18.7 million loss related to foreign currency fluctuations and a net interest expense of US$3.0 million, while the 4Q17 non-operating profit includes a US$5.7 million gain due to foreign currency fluctuations, and a net interest expense of US$3.3 million. The reported 4Q18 figures include a non-recurring, noncash foreign currency exchange loss of US$11.4 million that was booked as a gain in the 2017 restated financial results.
Copa Holdings closed the quarter with approximately US$ 858.4 million in cash, short-term and long-term investments, representing approximately 32% of the last twelve months’ revenues.
Total debt at the end of 4Q18 amounted to US$1.29 billion compared to US$1.17 billion at the end of 4Q17, all of which is related to aircraft financing.
We believe we have a very solid business model, which is based on operating the best and most convenient network for intra-Latin America travel from our Hub of the Americas® based in Panama’s advantageous geographic position, with the region’s lowest unit costs, best on-time performance, and strongest balance sheet. Going forward, the Company expects to continue strengthening its long-term competitive position by taking advantage of new growth opportunities and implementing initiatives to further lower its unit costs and increase revenues, while strengthening its network and product.
OUTLOOK FOR 2019
For 2019, the Company updates its guidance as follows: Consolidated capacity is now expected to grow approximately 2% and based on lower fuel price assumption for the year, operating margin is now expected to come in within the range of 12 to 14 percent.
|Capacity - YOY ASM Growth||+/-2||%||7.9||%|
Factored into the above-mentioned outlook is a load factor of approximately 84%, unit revenues (RASM) of 10.2 cents, unit costs excluding fuel (CASM Excl. Fuel) of 6.2 cents and an estimated effective price per gallon of jet fuel, including into-plane costs, of US$2.15 per gallon.
*excludes the one-time, noncash fleet impairment charge recorded in the fourth quarter of 2018.
CONSOLIDATED FOURTH QUARTER RESULTS
Consolidated revenue for 4Q18 totaled US$656.1 million, a 2.7% or US$18.1 million decrease over operating revenue of US$674.2 million in 4Q17, due to a 3.2% or US$20.9 million decrease in passenger revenue.
Passenger revenue totaled US$631.8 million, a decrease of 3.2% from passenger revenue of US$652.7 million in 4Q17. A 0.4 percentage point decrease in load factor, combined with a 7.7% decrease in passenger yield, resulted in an 8.2% decrease in PRASM.
Cargo and mail revenue totaled US$16.2 million in 4Q18, a 9.3% increase from 4Q17, mainly due to additional cargo volume.
Other operating revenue totaled US$8.1 million in 4Q18, a 21.2% increase from other operating revenue of US$6.7 million in 4Q17, mainly as a result of aircraft parts sales and loans, additional increased sales of non-air partner miles and marketing incentives from tourism authorities.
For 4Q18, operating expenses increased 39.5% to US$785.8 million, representing operating cost per available seat mile (CASM) of 12.2 cents. This significant increase is related to the one-time, noncash impairment charge related to the Embraer 190 fleet. Operating cost per available seat mile excluding fuel costs (CASM Excl. Fuel) came in at 9.1 cents, and when also excluding the impairment charge, adjusted CASM excluding fuel decreased 5.8% from 6.6 cents in 4Q17, to 6.2 cents in 4Q18.
Fuel totaled US$196.3 million, a US$36.7 million or 23.0% increase over aircraft fuel expense of US$159.6 million in 4Q17. This increase was a result of 4.3% more gallons consumed given additional capacity, and a 17.5% higher average price per gallon of jet fuel (all-in), which averaged US$2.38 in 4Q18, compared to US$2.03 in 4Q17.
Wages, salaries, benefits and other employees' expenses totaled US$114.4 million, a 3.1% increase over salaries and benefits of US$111.0 million in 4Q17. This was mainly driven by growth in operational staff to support capacity growth, partly offset by a decrease in variable compensation.
Passenger servicing totaled US$26.3 million, a 0.7% decrease over passenger servicing of US$26.5 million in 4Q17, due to a decrease of irregular operations, partially offset by an increase in traffic.
Airport facilities and handling charges totaled US$48.5 million, a 14.9% increase over 4Q17. This was primarily a result of an increase in departures and handling charges in North America.
Sales and distribution totaled US$51.8 million, a 0.7% increase over an expense of US$51.5 million in 4Q17, due mostly to an increase in passenger traffic, partly offset by a lower effective commission rate.
Maintenance, material and repairs totaled US$27.5 million, a 30.2% decrease from maintenance, material and repairs of US$39.4 million in 4Q17, mainly as a result of expenses related to leased aircraft returns made during 4Q17.
Depreciation and amortization totaled US$39.8 million in 4Q18, a 7.1% decrease over depreciation of US$42.9 million in 4Q17. This decrease was primarily the result of changes in aircraft accrual policy.
Flight operations, aircraft rentals and other rentals, cargo and courier expenses combined increased 7.1%, from US$60.6 million in 4Q17 to US$64.9 million in 4Q18, mainly as a result of additional operations, increased overflight rates in certain countries and additional cargo and courier expenses.
Other operating and administrative expenses totaled US$27.7 million in 4Q18, a decrease of 6.9% versus 4Q17 mainly due to the timing of overhead expenses in 2017.
Non-operating Profit (Expense)
Consolidated non-operating profit (expense) resulted in a net expense of US$22.2 million in 4Q18, compared to a net profit of US$2.0 million in 4Q17.
Finance cost totaled US$9.2 million in 4Q18, a 4.9% increase from interest expense of US$8.7 million in 4Q17, as a result of a higher debt balance, and higher interest rates.
Finance income totaled US$6.1 million, a 12.3% increase over interest profit of US$5.4 million in 4Q17, as a result of higher interest rates, partly offset by a lower cash balance.
Gain (loss) on foreign currency fluctuations totaled a US$18.7 million loss, compared to a US$5.7 million gain in 4Q17. The 4Q18 loss is composed by $7.3 million loss due to the net effect of foreign currency fluctuations, mainly in Brazil, Argentina, Mexico and Colombia, and an $11.4 million loss related to a foreign exchange adjustment realized as a gain in the 2017 restatement.
Net change in the value of derivatives had no effect in 4Q18, compared to a US$0.5 million gain in 4Q17.
Other non-operating profit (expense) resulted in a net expense of US$0.5 million in 4Q18 compared to a net expense of US$0.9 million in 4Q17.
