-- [ Page 8 ] --

An audit undertaken in accordance with ISAs (UK and Ireland) involves obtaining evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements sufficient to give reasonable assurance that the financial statements are free from material misstatement, whether caused by fraud or error. This includes an assessment of: whether the accounting policies are appropriate to the Group‘s circumstances and have been consistently applied and adequately disclosed; the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by the directors; and the overall presentation of the financial statements.

In addition, we read all the financial and non-financial information in the Annual Report to identify material inconsistencies with the audited financial statements and to identify any information that is apparently materially incorrect based on, or materially inconsistent with, the knowledge acquired by us in the course of performing the audit. If we become aware of any apparent material misstatements or inconsistencies we consider the implications for our report.

Whilst an audit conducted in accordance with ISAs (UK and Ireland) is designed to provide reasonable assurance of identifying material misstatements or omissions it is not guaranteed to do so. Rather the auditor plans the audit to determine the extent of testing needed to reduce to an appropriately low level the probability that the aggregate of uncorrected and undetected misstatements does not exceed materiality for the financial statements as a whole. This testing requires us to conduct significant audit work on a broad range of assets, liabilities, income and expense as well as devoting significant time of the most experienced members of the audit team, in particular the engagement partner responsible for the audit, to subjective areas of accounting and reporting.

Our report is made solely to the Company‘s members, as a body, in accordance with section 193 of the Companies Act 1990. Our audit work has been undertaken so that we might state to the Company‘s members those matters we are required to state to them in an auditor‘s report and for no other purpose. To the fullest extent permitted by law, we do not accept or assume responsibility to anyone other than the Company and the Company‘s members as a body, for our audit work, for this report, or for the opinions we have formed.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information

Except for the historical statements and discussions contained herein, statements contained in this report constitute ―forward-looking statements‖ within the meaning of Section 27A of the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the ―Securities Act‖), and Section 21E of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the ―Exchange Act‖). Forward-looking statements may include words such as ―expect,‖ ―estimate,‖ ―project,‖ ―anticipate,‖ ―should,‖ ―intend,‖ and similar expressions or variations on such expressions. Any filing made by the Company with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the ―SEC‖) may include forwardlooking statements. In addition, other written or oral statements which constitute forward-looking statements have been made and may in the future be made by or on behalf of the Company, including statements concerning its future operating and financial performance, the Company‘s share of new and existing markets, general industry and economic trends and the Company‘s performance relative thereto and the Company‘s expectations as to requirements for capital expenditures and regulatory matters. The Company‘s business is to provide a low-fares airline service in Europe, and its outlook is predominately based on its interpretation of what it considers to be the key economic factors affecting that business and the European economy. Forward-looking statements with regard to the Company‘s business rely on a number of assumptions concerning future events and are subject to a number of uncertainties and other factors, many of which are outside the Company‘s control, that could cause actual results to differ materially from such statements. It is not reasonably possible to itemize all of the many factors and specific events that could affect the outlook and results of an airline operating in the European economy. Among the factors that are subject to change and could significantly impact Ryanair‘s expected results are the airline pricing environment, fuel costs, competition from new and existing carriers, market prices for replacement aircraft and aircraft maintenance services, aircraft availability, costs associated with environmental, safety and security measures, terrorist attacks, actions of the Irish, U.K., EU and other governments and their respective regulatory agencies, fluctuations in currency exchange rates and interest rates, changes to the structure of the euro, airport handling and access charges, litigation, labor relations, the economic environment of the airline industry, the general economic environment in Ireland, the U.K. and elsewhere in Europe, the general willingness of passengers to travel, flight interruptions caused by volcanic ash emissions or other atmospheric disruptions, factors affecting the value of Ryanair‘s investment in Aer Lingus Group plc and other factors discussed herein. The Company disclaims any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Ryanair operates an ultra-low cost, scheduled airline serving short-haul, point-to-point routes largely in Europe from its 69 bases in airports across Europe, which together are referred to as ―Ryanair‘s bases of operations‖ or ―Ryanair‘s bases.‖ For a list of these bases, see ―Item 4. Information on the Company—Route System, Scheduling and Fares.‖ Ryanair pioneered the low-fares operating model in Europe in the early 1990s.

As of June 30, 2014, the Company offered over 1,600 scheduled short-haul flights per day serving approximately 186 airports largely throughout Europe, with a principal fleet of 297 Boeing 737-800 aircraft and 5 additional leased aircraft acquired on short term leases for the summer of 2014 to provide extra capacity flying approximately 1,600 routes. The Company also holds a 29.8% interest in Aer Lingus Group plc (―Aer Lingus‖), which it has acquired through market purchases following Aer Lingus‘ partial privatization in 2006. Ryanair‘s attempts to acquire the entire share capital of Aer Lingus have been blocked by the European authorities, with the latest ruling currently under appeal by Ryanair. For additional information, see ―Item 8. Financial Information—Other Financial Information—Legal Proceedings—Matters Related to Investment in Aer Lingus.‖ A detailed description of the Company‘s business can be found in ―Item 4. Information on the Company.‖
