2Q18 Results Summary

OMA generated a 25.7% increase in Adjusted EBITDA in 2Q18, with an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 70.5%.

Aeronautical and non-aeronautical revenues rose a combined 16.0%, on a 9.6% increase in total passenger traffic volumes.   

Aeronautical revenues rose 17.6%, as a result of higher traffic volumes and the increase in tariffs implemented in January 2018.

Non-aeronautical revenues grew 11.3%, led by growth in the car rental, OMA Carga, and parking line items. 

Cost of airport services and G&A expense decreased 8.5%.  The reduction reflected primarily reduced payroll,  contracted services, and minor maintenance as a result of cost control initiatives. Total operating costs and expenses were unchanged from the prior year period. 

Capital investments and major maintenance included in the Master Development Plans (MDPs) plus strategic investments reached Ps. 436 million. Investments included the completion of the new passenger terminal in the Acapulco airport; the construction of a new passenger terminal in Reynosa; expansion and remodeling of the Chihuahua, San Luis Potosi, and Tampico passenger terminals; and a new regional passenger boarding area in Monterrey’s Terminal B.  All investments were funded out of cash generated from operations.

The ratio of net debt to EBITDA was 0.70 as of June 30, 2018.
