First Quarter Adjusted Diluted EPS Growth of 32%
Increases Full Year EPS Guidance

PARSIPPANY, N.J. - April 28, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Wyndham Worldwide Corporation (NYSE: WYN) today announced results for the three months ended March 31, 2015.

First Quarter Highlights:

  • First quarter adjusted diluted earnings per share (EPS) was $1.03, an increase of 32% from adjusted diluted EPS of $0.78 in the first quarter of 2014. Reported diluted EPS was $1.00 in the first quarter of 2015, an increase of 45% from reported diluted EPS of $0.69 from the same period in 2014.
  • Revenues increased 6% compared with the first quarter of 2014. In constant currency, revenues increased 9%.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 14% compared with the first quarter of 2014. In constant currency, adjusted EBITDA increased 18%.
  • During the quarter, the Company repurchased 1.7 million shares of its common stock for $150 million.   

"We are off to a strong start this year. Despite significant currency headwinds, adjusted diluted EPS increased 32% and adjusted EBITDA increased 14% in the first quarter," said Stephen P. Holmes, chairman and CEO. "All three businesses once again performed well, highlighted by strong domestic RevPAR growth at our Hotel Group, improved provision and cost of sales at Vacation Ownership and strong growth across our vacation rentals businesses. We continue to deliver strong results, allocate capital to both invest in the business and return to shareholders, and innovate to build a strong competitive position going forward."

FIRST QUARTER 2015 OPERATING RESULTS

First quarter revenues were $1.3 billion, an increase of 6% from the prior year period. In constant currency revenues increased 9%, reflecting growth across the Company's business segments.

Adjusted net income was $126 million, or $1.03 per diluted share, compared with $102 million, or $0.78 per diluted share for the same period in 2014. The increase reflects stronger financial results in all of the Company's businesses. EPS also benefited from the Company's share repurchase program, which decreased weighted average diluted share count by 6% year-over-year.

Reported net income for the first quarter of 2015 was $122 million, or $1.00 per diluted share, compared with $90 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2014. Reported net income in both periods reflects several items excluded from adjusted net income. The net result of these items unfavorably impacted first quarter 2015 net income by $4 million and unfavorably impacted first quarter 2014 net income by $12 million. Full reconciliations of adjusted results to GAAP results appear in Table 8 of this press release.

Free cash flow was $197 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015, compared with $269 million for the same period in 2014. The decline in free cash flow reflects the timing of working capital including inventory spending. The Company defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. For the three months ended March 31, 2015, net cash provided by operating activities was $253 million, compared with $315 million in the prior year period. The Company expects free cash flow for the full year 2015 of approximately $800 million compared with $749 million in free cash flow in 2014.

BUSINESS UNIT RESULTS

Lodging (Wyndham Hotel Group)
Revenues were $292 million in the first quarter of 2015, a 23% increase over the first quarter of 2014. Excluding an acquisition and in constant currency, revenues increased 14%, reflecting higher domestic RevPAR and worldwide room growth as well as incremental global conference fees.

Total system-wide RevPAR increased 1.7% compared with the first quarter of 2014. Domestic RevPAR increased 7.7%, but was partially offset by a 9.8% decline in international RevPAR. In constant currency and excluding acquisitions, total system-wide RevPAR increased 4.0%.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2015 was $79 million, a 16% increase compared with the first quarter of 2014. The increase primarily reflects higher domestic RevPAR and worldwide room growth as well as higher inter-segment licensing fees for use of the Wyndham brand trade name.

As of March 31, 2015, the Company's hotel system consisted of over 7,670 properties and over 667,000 rooms, a 3.2% room increase compared with the first quarter of 2014. The development pipeline included 925 hotels and approximately 116,000 rooms, of which 58% were international and 62% were new construction.

Vacation Exchange and Rentals (Wyndham Exchange & Rentals)
Revenues were $369 million in the first quarter of 2015, a 3% decrease over the first quarter of 2014. In constant currency, revenues increased 5%.

Exchange revenues were $185 million, a 1% decrease compared with the first quarter of 2014. In constant currency, exchange revenues increased 2%, as the average number of members increased 2.5% and exchange revenue per member was flat.

Vacation rental revenues were $166 million, a 6% decrease compared to the first quarter of 2014. In constant currency, vacation rental revenues were up 8%, reflecting a 7.0% increase in transaction volume and a 0.9% increase in average net price per vacation rental.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2015 was $104 million, a 9% increase compared with the first quarter of 2014. On a currency-neutral basis and excluding the divestiture of a business, adjusted EBITDA increased 9% compared with the prior year period primarily reflecting higher revenue and a $4 million reserve reversal resulting from a favorable ruling associated with value-added taxes.

Vacation Ownership (Wyndham Vacation Ownership)
Revenues were $617 million in the first quarter of 2015, a 4% increase over the first quarter of 2014.

Net VOI sales increased 11%, primarily reflecting a lower loan loss provision and the recognition of deferred revenues. Gross VOI sales were $390 million in the first quarter of 2015, a decrease of 5% compared with the first quarter of 2014, reflecting a 4.2% decline in volume per guest (VPG) and a 1.2% decline in tour flow. In constant currency, VPG declined 3.1% primarily reflecting a higher mix of new owner tours, which generally have a lower VPG than tours to existing owners.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2015 was $130 million, an increase of 13% compared with the first quarter of 2014, primarily reflecting the net revenue increase and lower cost of sales.

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 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 the Company's reportable segments, as well as reconcile EBITDA to Net income for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014:

OPERATING STATISTICS

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 and (ii) properties under affiliation agreements for which the Company receives a fee for reservation and/or other services provided.

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 who are 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 2012-2015.

General

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

Currency-Neutral: Represents a comparison eliminating the effects of foreign exchange rate fluctuations between periods (foreign currency translation) and the impact caused by any foreign exchange related activities (i.e., hedges, balance sheet remeasurements and/or adjustments).

__________

                       

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)

Relates to costs associated with an executive's departure at the Company's lodging business.

(b)

(c)

NON-GAAP RECONCILIATIONS AND FINANCIAL INFORMATION

(In millions)

                       

FREE CASH FLOW

                     

We define free cash flow to be net cash provided by operating activities less property and equipment additions which we also refer 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:
