Discovery Air Inc. announces results for its three months and year ended January 31, 2010

April 29, 2010
Yellowknife, NWT

President and CEO’s Comments

During calendar 2009, our management team worked hard to stabilize Discovery Air both operationally and financially in the midst of a particularly challenging economic environment. Our adjusted EBITDA performance strengthened both in dollar terms and as a percentage of revenues, reflecting a continued focus on operating efficiencies and cost control. For fiscal 2010, we recorded a net loss of $286,000 compared to the $130 million net loss in fiscal 2009, which included significant goodwill and asset impairment charges. This improvement was achieved despite a reduction in revenues to $123 million, down from $152 million in fiscal 2009. While returns even at these improved levels are below target and not acceptable over the long haul, we emerged from a tough year as a better-managed and more resilient business, well-positioned for improved results in fiscal 2011.
