Scott Topping – EVP, CFO and Treasurer


Unidentified Analyst

Okay, thank you. All right, for our next presentation this afternoon, we’re very pleased to have Scott Topping, Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer of Hawaiian Holdings. Scott was appointed CFO of Hawaiian in 2011. Prior to becoming CFO, Scott spent six years at South West Airlines in various senior roles, most recently as Vice President and Treasurer.

And so now, to provide us with an update on the Hawaiian story, Scott Topping.

Scott Topping

Thank you Mike and thank you everybody for coming out and spending some time with us today. Before I get started, I’d like to introduce Susan Donofrio, our Senior Director of Investor Relations. I know many of you know Susan already with her years in the industry, we’re happy to have her here.

What I’d like to do today is leave you with some thoughts around how Hawaiian Airlines is different. We are certainly charting our own course. We have different business model and we’re a much different airline than we were just a few years ago. And these are very, very positive things.

To see this, I’m going to organize my talk around the strategy and network, we’ll look at growth opportunities, we’ll take a look at financial performance and then we’ll look at how we manage our balance sheet which is pretty critical when you’re growing at 20% to 30% clip.

So, let’s start with the strategy. Our business model is simple as many successful models are. We’re not though a network carrier and we’re not a point-to-point carrier. Based on where we’re located, we are a destination carrier. And our franchise, you could put it simply as that we sell Hawaii experiences. We bring people to Hawaii.
