Shares of Brazil-based budget carrier Azul (NYSE: AZUL) climbed steeply on Tuesday. This seems to be tied to developments in the reopening of the struggling Brazilian economy, plus perhaps some good news with a corporate sibling. On Tuesday, the massive city's "non-essential" businesses were allowed to reopen, which will have a dramatic effect on the national economy.
Shares of Brazilian discount airline Azul (NYSE: AZUL) bounced back from a 6.5% loss Tuesday and were racing ahead 22% today as of 10:40 a.m. EDT. As recently as February, Azul was still in growth mode, with consolidated passenger traffic up 25% year over year. By May, things were so bad that S&P Global Ratings downgraded the Brazilian airline's debt to CCC+ (a junk level) with a negative outlook promising more downgrades ahead.

(Bloomberg) -- The rescue package to airlines in Brazil will total about 4 billion reais ($680 million), according to people familiar to the matter.The package, which was presented to airlines on Wednesday, includes credit from development lender BNDES, which will provide 60%, or no more than 2.4 billion reais, the people said, asking not to be named because the discussions are private. Other banks will provide another 10%, or no more than 400 million reais, they said, adding that the companies will have to seek at least the remaining 30%, or 1.2 billion reais, from investment funds via capital markets.Azul SA, Gol Linhas Aereas Inteligentes SA and Latam Airlines Group SA can seek the aid, the people said. The companies will use local bonds and warrants to raise funds, and the price for the shares on the warrant and the dilution to current shareholders is different for each firm, the people said.Unlike its peers, Latam doesn’t have shares traded in the Brazilian stock exchange, which has complicated the talks. The Santiago-based airline will have to prove to creditors it has a certain liquidity threshold and give its Brazilian lenders enough legal safeties to make them comfortable with the transaction, one of the people said.The companies will hire banks to coordinate capital market transactions that will fix price, yields and volume through a book-building process, the people said. Each company will be allowed to raise as much as 2 billion reais total funding through the program. The warrants and the local bonds could be traded on the secondary markets separately, one person said.Gol, Azul, Latam and BNDES declined to comment. On Thursday, Azul’s Chief Executive Officer John Rodgerson told analysts in a conference call that the company will hold a meeting with BNDES to better understand the structure of the 4-billion real aid package.Brazilian companies are struggling to overcome the effects of the pandemic that’s wreaking havoc in Latin America’s largest economy. On Wednesday, the government cut its official GDP outlook to -4.7%, though some forecasts point to a 7% contraction. Airlines are among the hardest-hit, grappling not just with grounded planes because of the disease, but also a currency that’s down more than 30% this year. Gol saw departures sink 94% last month, while Azul reported a first quarter loss of 6.14 billion reais.BNDES, the government development bank, is spearheading the effort to support companies with revenue of at least 300 million reais in industries including “non-food” retail and auto, power and airline companies, Chief Executive Officer Gustavo Montezano said last month in a video conference with executives at Itau Unibanco Holding SA. The lender is organizing syndicated loans in a partnership with banks, including ones not owned by the state, in order to save money for the government, he said, adding the loans won’t be subsidized to lower interest rates.(Updates with Azul CEO comments in sixth paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
Brazilian state development bank BNDES proposed a rescue package worth 4 billion reais ($680 million) for the nation's airlines, less than half the amount initially anticipated, Azul SA's Chief Executive John Rodgerson said on Thursday. Rodgerson confirmed reports on the rescue size on an analysts' call, saying he was "disappointed" with the value but that he understood Brazil lacked resources for a larger bailout. The plan, which first centered around a 10 billion reais credit line, has shrunk in value over time as private lenders balked at extending bigger loans and because the airlines were reluctant to accept larger share dilution, said two sources who declined to be identified as the discussions were private.
Brazilian airline Azul SA <AZUL.N> said on Wednesday it has hired restructuring firm Galeazzi & Associados to work with the carrier "during this period of crisis." Galeazzi previously worked with Azul's cargo subsidiary before the coronavirus pandemic hammered the air travel sector, Azul said in a statement, adding that the contract had been expanded to a wider advisory role. Galeazzi did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
