Gol Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes SA, Brazil’s No. 2 airline, said late on Monday that it will take a 140 million reais ($70 million) one-off charge for non-recurring expenses in the company’s fourth-quarter results related to the shutdown of its subsidiary Webjet. The airline announced a decision to close Webjet on Nov. 23, which resulted in the dismissal of 850 workers. The decision to fire the staff and close Webjet has resulted in a series of legal lawsuits against Gol.
The company is expected to release earnings on March 25.
