Wyndham Worldwide Reports First Quarter 2014 Earnings

Adjusted Diluted EPS Growth of 10%

Raises Full Year EPS Guidance

PARSIPPANY, N.J. - April 24, 2014 // PRNewswire // - Wyndham Worldwide Corporation (NYSE: WYN) today announced results for the three months ended March 31, 2014.

First Quarter Highlights:

  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share (EPS) was $0.78, an increase of 10% from adjusted diluted EPS of $0.71 in the first quarter of 2013.  Reported diluted EPS was $0.69, compared with $0.19 in the first quarter of 2013.
  • Domestic RevPAR up 7.6%.
  • Net Vacation Ownership Interest sales up 15%.
  • The Company repurchased 2.1 million shares of its common stock for $150 million.  

"We are off to a great start in 2014," said Stephen P. Holmes, chairman and CEO. "In our Hotel Group, domestic RevPAR growth accelerated. In Vacation Ownership, a combination of increased sales and a lower loan loss provision drove strong revenue growth. In our Exchange and Rentals business, peak season summer vacation rental bookings are up from last year. We continued to generate strong free cash flow and to return a significant portion of that cash to shareholders."

First Quarter 2014 Operating Results

First quarter revenues were $1.2 billion, an increase of 5% from the prior year period. The increase reflects growth in the Company's lodging and vacation ownership business segments.

Adjusted net income was $102 million, or $0.78 per diluted share, compared with $98 million, or $0.71 per diluted share for the same period in 2013. The performance reflects solid operating results across all of the Company's businesses and lower interest expense. EPS growth also benefited from the Company's share repurchase program.

Reported net income for the first quarter of 2014 was $90 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, compared with $27 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2013. Reported net income included several items not included in adjusted net income. The net result of these items unfavorably impacted first quarter 2014 net income by $12 million and unfavorably impacted first quarter 2013 net income by $71 million. Full reconciliations of adjusted results to GAAP results appear in Table 8 of this press release.

Free cash flow was $269 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014, compared with $233 million for the same period in 2013. The growth of free cash flow largely reflects favorable timing of working capital. The Company defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. For the three months ended March 31, 2014, net cash provided by operating activities was $315 million, compared with $274 million in the prior year period.

Business Unit Results

Lodging (Wyndham Hotel Group)

Revenues were $237 million in the first quarter of 2014, a 7% increase over the first quarter of 2013. The increase reflects higher RevPAR, franchise fees and EBITDA-neutral hotel management reimbursable fees.

Total system-wide RevPAR increased 4.0% compared with the first quarter of 2013. The increase reflects a 7.6% domestic increase, partially offset by a 4.3% decline in international RevPAR, primarily reflecting unfavorable currency movements.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2014 was $68 million, a 17% increase compared with the first quarter of 2013. The increase was primarily due to the revenue increases and the favorable timing of marketing expenditures.

As of March 31, 2014, the Company's hotel system consisted of approximately 7,500 properties and 646,900 rooms, a 2.4% room increase compared with the first quarter of 2013. The development pipeline included over 955 hotels and approximately 117,000 rooms, of which 60% were international and 69% were new construction.

Vacation Exchange and Rentals (Wyndham Exchange & Rentals)

Revenues were $379 million in the first quarter of 2014, a 1% increase over the first quarter of 2013. In constant currency, revenues were flat.
Exchange revenues were $187 million, a decline of 3% from the first quarter of 2013. In constant currency, exchange revenues declined 2%, as a 1.6% increase in average number of members was offset by a 3.7% decline in exchange revenue per member.

Vacation rental revenues were $176 million, a 6% increase over the first quarter of 2013. Excluding foreign currency, vacation rental revenues were up 2%, reflecting a 1.4% increase in transaction volume and a 0.8% increase in the average net price per vacation rental.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2014 was $95 million, a 1% increase compared with the first quarter of 2013, reflecting the impact of foreign currency and acquisitions.

Vacation Ownership (Wyndham Vacation Ownership)

Revenues were $593 million in the first quarter of 2014, an 8% increase over the first quarter of 2013, primarily reflecting higher gross VOI sales and a lower loan loss provision.

Gross VOI sales were $410 million in the first quarter of 2014, an increase of 7% over the first quarter of 2013, reflecting a 4.3% increase in tour flow and a 2.8% increase in volume per guest.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2014 was $115 million, a 2% increase compared with the first quarter of 2013, reflecting the revenue increases. Excluding the favorable resolution of a lawsuit in the prior-year quarter, adjusted EBITDA increased an additional $11 million.

Other Items

  • The Company repurchased 2.1 million shares of common stock for $150 million during the first quarter of 2014.  From April 1 through April 23, 2014, the Company repurchased an additional 0.6 million shares for $42 million.  The Company's remaining share repurchase authorization totals $476 million as of April 23, 2014.
  • Net interest expense in the first quarter of 2014 was $25 million, compared with $30 million in the first quarter of 2013, reflecting lower rates associated with recent financings and the benefit of a fixed-for-floating rate swap.

  • Cash and cash equivalents of $203 million, compared with $194 million at December 31, 2013
  • Vacation ownership contract receivables, net, of $2.7 billion, compared with $2.8 billion at December 31, 2013
  • Vacation ownership and other inventory of $1.0 billion, unchanged from December 31, 2013

A schedule of debt is included in Table 5 of this press release.

Presentation of Financial Information

Financial information discussed in this press release includes non-GAAP measures, which include or exclude certain items. These non-GAAP measures differ from reported GAAP results and are intended to illustrate what management believes are relevant period-over-period comparisons and are helpful to investors as an additional tool for further understanding and assessing the Company's ongoing core operating performance. Exclusion of items in our non-GAAP presentation should not be considered an inference that these items are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. A complete reconciliation of reported GAAP results to the comparable non-GAAP information appears in the financial tables section of the press release. It is not practicable to provide a reconciliation of forecasted adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS to the most directly comparable GAAP measures because certain items cannot be reasonably estimated or predicted at this time. Any such items could be significant to the Company's reported results.

OPERATING RESULTS OF REPORTABLE SEGMENTS

(In millions)

                         
                         

In addition to other measures, management evaluates the operating results of each of its reportable segments based upon net revenues and "EBITDA", which is defined as net income before depreciation and amortization, interest expense (excluding consumer financing interest), early extinguishment of debt, interest income (excluding consumer financing interest) and income taxes, each of which is presented on the Company's Consolidated Statements of Income. The Company believes that EBITDA is a useful measure of performance for the Company's industry segments which when considered with GAAP measures, gives a more complete understanding of its operating performance. The Company's presentation of EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures used by other companies.

 

The following tables summarize net revenues and EBITDA for reportable segments, as well as reconcile EBITDA to Net Income for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013:

(a)

Represents provision for estimated losses on vacation ownership contract receivables originated during the period, which is recorded as a contra revenue to vacation ownership interest

sales on the Consolidated Statements of Income.

(b)

Represents Gross VOI sales under the Company's WAAM Fee-for-Service for which the Company earns commission revenue (WAAM Fee-for-Service Commission Revenues). The

commission revenue earned on these sales is included in service fees and membership revenues on the Consolidated Statements of Income.

(c)

Represents Gross VOI sales under the Company's WAAM Just-in-Time which enables the Company to acquire and own completed timeshare units close to the timing of the sales of such

units. This significantly reduces the period between the deployment of capital to acquire inventory and the subsequent return on investment which occurs at the time of its sale to a

timeshare purchaser. The Company implemented this sales model during the second quarter of 2012 and as such, there is no historical data prior to 2012.

GLOSSARY OF TERMS

                               

Lodging

                           
                               

Number of Rooms: Represents the number of rooms at lodging properties at the end of the period which are either (i) under franchise and/or management agreements, or company owned, (ii) properties under affiliation agreements for which the Company receives a fee for reservation and/or other services provided and (iii) properties managed under a joint venture.

 

Average Occupancy Rate: Represents the percentage of available rooms occupied during the period.

                               

Average Daily Rate (ADR): Represents the average rate charged for renting a lodging room for one day.

                               

RevPAR: Represents revenue per available room and is calculated by multiplying average occupancy rate by ADR. Comparable RevPAR represents RevPAR of hotels which are included in both periods.

                           

Vacation Exchange and Rentals

                         
                               

Average Number of Members: Represents members in our vacation exchange programs who paid annual membership dues as of the end of the period or within the allowed grace period. For additional fees, such participants are entitled to exchange intervals for intervals at other properties affiliated with the Company's vacation exchange business. In addition, certain participants may exchange intervals for other leisure-related services and products.

 

Exchange Revenue Per Member: Represents total annualized revenues generated from fees associated with memberships, exchange transactions, member-related rentals and other servicing for the period divided by the average number of vacation exchange members during the period.

 

Vacation Rental Transactions: Represents the number of transactions that are generated during the period in connection with customers booking their vacation rental stays through the Company. One rental transaction is recorded for each standard one-week rental.

 

Average Net Price Per Vacation Rental: Represents the net rental price generated from renting vacation properties to customers and other related rental servicing fees during the period divided by the number of vacation rental transactions during the period.

                             

Vacation Ownership

                         
                               

Gross Vacation Ownership Interest Sales: Represents sales of vacation ownership interest (VOIs), including WAAM sales, before the net effect of percentage-of-completion accounting and loan loss provisions. See Table 9 for a reconciliation of Gross VOI sales to vacation ownership interest sales.

 

Tours: Represents the number of tours taken by guests in our efforts to sell VOIs.

                               

Volume per Guest (VPG): Represents Gross VOI sales (excluding tele-sales upgrades, which are non-tour upgrade sales) divided by the number of tours. The Company has excluded non-tour upgrade sales in the calculation of VPG because non-tour upgrade sales are generated by a different marketing channel. See Table 9 for a detail of tele-sales upgrades for 2011-2014.

                               

General

                           
                               

Constant Currency: Represents a comparison eliminating the effects of foreign exchange rate fluctuations between periods.

__________

                             

The above table reconciles certain non-GAAP financial measures. The presentation of these adjustments is intended to permit the comparison of particular adjustments as they appear in the line items of the income statement in order to assist investors' understanding of the overall impact of such adjustments. This non-GAAP reconciliation table should not be considered a substitute for, nor superior to, financial results and measures determined or calculated in accordance with GAAP.

                                 

Note: EPS amounts may not add due to rounding.

(a)

NON-GAAP RECONCILIATIONS AND FINANCIAL INFORMATION

(In millions)

                       

FREE CASH FLOW

                     

The Company defines free cash flow to be net cash provided by operating activities less property and equipment additions which it also refers to as capital expenditures.

 

We believe free cash flow to be a useful operating performance measure to evaluate the ability of our operations to generate cash for uses other than capital expenditures and, after debt service and other obligations, our ability to grow our business through acquisitions, development advances and equity investments, as well as our ability to return cash to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases. A limitation of using free cash flow versus the GAAP measure of net cash provided by operating activities, net cash used in investing activities and net cash used in financing activities as a means for evaluating Wyndham Worldwide is that free cash flow does not represent the total cash movement for the period as detailed in the consolidated statement of cash flows.

                       

The following table provides more details on the GAAP financial measure that is most directly comparable to the non-GAAP financial measure and the related reconciliation between these financial measures:
