LatinFinance Magazine Recognizes GOL’s IPO as
Best Equity Deal of 2004
São Paulo, February 15, 2005 – GOL Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes S.A. (NYSE: GOL and Bovespa: GOLL4), Brazil’s low-fare, low-cost airline, today announced that it has received “LatinFinance’s Best Equity Deal of The Year” award for 2004. The award, organized by LatinFinance magazine, analyzed 12 of the most successful Initial Public Offerings of Latin American companies during 2004, selecting GOL’s offering which raised US$281 million.
In its analysis, the magazine highlighted GOL’s position as the first Brazilian company in five years to access the capital markets in both Brazil, via the São Paulo Stock Exchange (Bovespa) and in the United States, via the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), simultaneously.
“GOL is very proud of having its IPO recognized as the best equity transaction of the year by LatinFinance magazine”, said Richard Lark, GOL’s Chief Financial Officer. The Company’s highly successful initial public offering was a significant step forward in the Company’s strategy to increase financial resources and fund the acquisition of a new fleet of Boeing 737-800 NGs.
In its analysis, LatinFinance also emphasized that GOL’s shares attracted a significant portion of individual investors - which accounted for a US$130 million demand in connection with GOL’s IPO. In July 2004, the participation of individual investors on Bovespa’s total trading volume reached 30%.
