SkyWest, Inc. Announces Delay in Filing Form 10-Q for the Quarter Ended September 30, 2002.
Based upon information currently available to management, including discussions with KPMG, management believes that the principal adjustment is limited to the timing of the recognition of the $7.3 million of maintenance expense and therefore will not reduce the aggregate net income or earnings per share for the five quarterly periods under consideration. Management anticipates that its previously reported earnings, announced in its press release dated October 30, 2002, for the three months ended September 30, 2002, will be adjusted from $0.35 per diluted share to approximately $0.41 per diluted share and the reported earnings for the nine months ended September 30, 2002 will be adjusted from $0.97 per diluted share to approximately $1.04 per diluted share. Additionally, management believes the Company's previously reported earnings for the year ended December 31, 2001, will be adjusted from $0.99 per diluted share to approximately $0.90 per diluted share. Although management believes the adjusted earnings per share amounts described herein fairly reflect the results of operations of the Company for the periods indicated, there can be no assurance that the information set forth herein will not be adjusted further as a result of the re-audit of the Company's consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2001 or the completion of the pending SAS 71 review. The Company is proceeding with the re-audit process and expects it to be completed in approximately four weeks.
The Company has notified the Nasdaq Stock Market of the delay in filing the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and intends to work closely with Nasdaq to maintain the Company's listing on the Nasdaq National Market.
