 Wyndham Worldwide Reports First Quarter 2017 Results
   Wednesday, April 26, 2017 6:30:00 AM ET

Wyndham Worldwide Corporation (WYN ) today announced results for the three months ended March 31, 2017.

FIRST QUARTER 2017 OPERATING RESULTS First quarter revenues were $1.3 billion, up 1% compared with the prior year period. Full reconciliations of GAAP results to non-GAAP measures for all reported periods appear in the tables to this press release.

Net income for the first quarter of 2017 was $141 million compared with $96 million for the first quarter of 2016. Diluted earnings per share (EPS) were $1.33 compared with $0.84 for the prior year period. Adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2017, which excludes charges and gains in 2017 and charges in 2016 as detailed in Table 7 of this press release, was $120 million compared with $127 million for the first quarter of 2016, primarily reflecting a higher provision for loan losses and benefits in the prior-year period related to business interruption claims that were absent in the first quarter of 2017. Adjusted diluted EPS was $1.14 compared with $1.12 per share in the prior year period, reflecting the benefit of the Company’s share repurchase program.

First quarter EBITDA was $266 million, compared with $267 million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes charges in both 2017 and 2016 as detailed in Table 8 of this press release, was $278 million, compared with $291 million in the prior year period, primarily reflecting a higher provision for loan losses and benefits in the prior-year period related to business interruption claims that were absent in the first quarter of 2017.

"Our first quarter results were right in line with our expectations," said Stephen P. Holmes, chairman and CEO. "We’re excited by the progress we’re making in connecting our customers and brands through Wyndham Rewards to enhance customer acquisition, experience and retention. We expect this to result in stronger growth and greater long-term value for our shareholders this year and for years to come.

"In addition, we are pleased to welcome Mike Brown as the new CEO and president of our vacation ownership business," continued Mr. Holmes. "Mike is a 25-year hospitality industry veteran and brings an ideal combination of strategic vision, operational expertise, and industry knowledge to the role. I am confident that Mike is the right leader to take Wyndham Vacation Ownership to the next level."

For the three months ended March 31, 2017, net cash provided by operating activities was $238 million, compared with $261 million in the prior year period. The decrease primarily reflects changes in the timing of inventory purchases.

Free cash flow was $203 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017, compared with $218 million for the same period in 2016, primarily reflecting the changes in net cash provided by operating activities. The Company defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures.

FIRST QUARTER 2017 BUSINESS UNIT RESULTS

Hotel Group Revenues were $298 million in the first quarter of 2017, compared with $295 million in the first quarter of 2016. EBITDA was $85 million in the first quarter compared with $84 million in the prior-year quarter, growing 2% on a currency-neutral basis. Results reflect higher franchise fees and growth in the Wyndham Rewards credit card program, partially offset by lower occupancy at the Company’s owned hotel in Puerto Rico due to consumer concerns about the Zika virus.

First quarter domestic same-store RevPAR increased 1.7% compared with the first quarter of 2016. In constant currency, total system-wide same-store RevPAR increased 2.2%.

As of March 31, 2017, the Company’s hotel system consisted of approximately 8,100 properties and 699,800 rooms, a 3.0% net room increase compared with the first quarter of 2016. The development pipeline increased to 1,130 hotels and approximately 143,100 rooms, of which 59% were international and 68% were new construction.

Destination Network Revenues were $391 million in the first quarter of 2017, compared with $385 million in the first quarter of 2016, an increase of 2%. In constant currency and excluding acquisitions, revenues increased 1%.

Vacation rental revenues were $184 million compared with $183 million in the prior year quarter. In constant currency and excluding acquisitions, vacation rental revenues increased 1%, reflecting a 2.8% increase in transaction volume partially offset by a 2.0% decline in the average net price per rental. Transaction volume benefited from capacity increases across the Company’s U.K.-based cottages and parks brands and Denmark-based Novasol brand, partially offset by the impact from the timing of the Easter holiday. Average net price per rental declined due to the mix impact of growth in the Company’s more modestly priced brands and the timing of the Easter holiday.

Exchange revenues were $183 million compared with $182 million in the prior year quarter. In constant currency, exchange revenue per member increased 0.8% and the average number of members declined 0.6%.

EBITDA was $102 million in the first quarter of 2017, including $2 million from acquisitions. This compares with first quarter 2016 EBITDA of $81 million or adjusted EBITDA of $105 million. 2016 adjusted EBITDA excluded a $24 million loss related to a currency devaluation. First quarter year-over-year EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA comparisons reflect the absence of a benefit of $3 million from business disruption claims received in the first quarter of 2016, as well as the unfavorable impact of the timing of the Easter holiday.

Vacation Ownership Revenues were $648 million in the first quarter of 2017, compared with $641 million in the first quarter of 2016.

Gross VOI sales increased 3% in the first quarter of 2017. Volume per guest (VPG) was up 4.9%, reflecting both a higher average close rate and transaction size. Tour flow declined 1.7% due to the closure of sales offices as part of a restructuring in the second half of last year.

EBITDA was $118 million in the first quarter of 2017 compared with $136 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA was $124 million in the first quarter of 2017. First quarter year-over-year EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA results reflect higher gross VOI sales offset by a higher provision for loan losses and the absence of a $6 million benefit from business interruption insurance claims received in the first quarter of 2016.

OUTLOOK

Note to Editors: The guidance excludes possible future share repurchases, while analysts’ estimates often include share repurchases. This results in discrepancies between Company guidance and database consensus forecasts.

The Company provides the following guidance for the full year 2017:

-- Reiterates revenues of approximately $5.80 billion to $5.95 billion

-- Updates adjusted net income to approximately $631 million to $652 million from $637 million to $658 million, reflecting higher interest expense from a new long-term debt issuance in the first quarter 2017 that replaced lower cost borrowings

-- Reiterates adjusted EBITDA of approximately $1.41 billion to $1.44 billion

-- Updates adjusted diluted EPS to approximately $5.98 to $6.18 based on a diluted share count of 105.5 million from $5.90 to $6.10 based on a diluted share count of 108 million

In determining adjusted net income, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS, the Company excludes certain items which are otherwise included in determining the comparable GAAP financial measures. A description of the adjustments that have been applicable for the reported periods in determining adjusted net income, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS are reflected in Tables 7 and 8 of this press release. The Company is providing an outlook for net income, EBITDA and EPS only on a non-GAAP basis because the Company is unable to predict with reasonable certainty the totality or ultimate outcome or occurrence of these adjustments or other potential adjustments that may arise in the future during the outlook period, which can be dependent on future events that may not be reliably predicted. See Table 10 for certain non-GAAP information concerning the outlook period.

The Company will post full guidance information on its website following the conference call.

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 operating performance. Exclusion of items in the Company’s non-GAAP presentation should not be considered an inference that these items are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. Full reconciliations of GAAP results to the comparable non-GAAP measures for the reported periods appear in the financial tables section of the press release.

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 revenues) and income taxes, each of which is presented on the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Income.  The Company also uses adjusted EBITDA as a financial measure of its operating performance.  The Company believes that EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are useful measures of assessing performance of the Company and for the Company’s segments which, when considered with GAAP measures, give a more complete understanding of its operating performance and assist our investors in evaluating our ongoing operating performance for the current reporting period and, where provided, over different reporting periods, by adjusting for certain items which may be recurring or nonrecurring and which in our view do not necessarily reflect ongoing operating performance. We also internally use these measures to assess our operating performance, both in absolute terms and in comparison to other companies, and in evaluating or making selected compensation decisions.  These supplemental disclosures are in addition to GAAP reported measures.  The Company’s presentation of EBITDA and adjusted 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 net income to EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016:

OPERATING STATISTICS
GLOSSARY OF TERMS
Hotel Group
Number of Rooms: Represents the number of rooms at hotel group 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.
Destination Network
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 in connection with customers booking their vacation rental stays through one of our vacation brands. 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 divided by the number of vacation rental transactions.
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. We believe gross VOI sales provide an enhanced understanding of the performance of our vacation ownership business because it directly measures the sales volume of this business during a given reporting period. 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 2014-2017.
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).

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 measures 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:

(a)      Marketing and reservation revenues represent fees the Company receives from franchised and managed hotels that are to be expended for marketing purposes or the operation of a centralized, brand-specific reservation system.

The above tables reconcile certain non-GAAP financial measures.  The presentation of these adjustments is intended to permit the comparison of particular adjustments as they appear in the income statement in order to assist investors’ understanding of the overall impact of such adjustments.  In addition to GAAP financial measures, the Company provides adjusted net income and adjusted EPS financial measures to assist our investors in evaluating our ongoing operating performance for the current reporting period and, where provided, over different reporting periods, by adjusting for certain items which may be recurring or non-recurring and which in our view do not necessarily reflect ongoing performance.  We also internally use these measures to assess our operating performance, both absolutely and in comparison to other companies, and in evaluating or making selected compensation decisions.  These supplemental disclosures are in addition to GAAP reported measures.  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.

(*)                 Excludes share-based compensation expenses for which there was no impact on adjusted EBITDA. Such costs amounted to $1 million during Q1 2017. During 2016, such costs amounted to $1 million during Q1, Q2 and Q3, and $4 million during Q4 and $7 million for the full year. The Company believes providing adjusted EBITDA with the additional exclusion of share-based compensation expense assists our investors and management by providing an additional financial measure to evaluate ongoing operations by excluding the variations among companies in timing, amount and reporting of share-based compensation expense, which may differ significantly among companies.

In determining adjusted EBIDTA, adjusted Net Income and adjusted EPS, the Company excludes certain items which are otherwise included in determining the comparable GAAP financial measures. A description of the adjustments which have been applicable in determining adjusted EBITDA, adjusted Net Income and adjusted EPS is included in Tables 7 and 8.  The Company is providing outlook on a non-GAAP basis because the Company is unable to predict with reasonable certainty the totality or ultimate outcome or occurrence of potential adjustments for the forward-looking period, which can be dependent on future events that may not be reliably predicted, such as acquisitions, legacy expenses, restructuring events, asset impairments, contract terminations, currency devaluations, or early extinguishment of debt instruments. Based on past reported results, where one or more of these items have been applicable, such excluded special items could be material, individually or in the aggregate, to the reported results. See Tables 7 and 8 for historical adjustments.
(a) Outlook represents Company’s approximate projection of performance for the outlook period.  Projections may not total because the Company does not expect the actual results of all items to be at the precise amount simultaneously.

NON-GAAP RECONCILIATION - CONSTANT CURRENCY, CURRENCY NEUTRAL AND ACQUISITIONS
(In millions, except per share data)
The Company reports certain current year period financial measures on a constant currency and currency-neutral basis and excluding the impact of acquisitions.  The Company believes providing certain financial measures on a constant currency and currency-neutral basis as well as excluding the impact of acquisitions assists management and investors in better understanding underlying results and trends by excluding the impact of period over period changes in foreign exchange rates and changes resulting from acquisitions.
Constant currency results assume foreign results are translated from foreign currencies to the U.S. dollar at exchange rates consistent with those in the comparable period.
Currency Neutral results (i) assume foreign results are translated from foreign currencies to the U.S. dollar at exchange rates consistent with those in the comparable period and (ii) eliminating foreign exchange related activities such as foreign exchange hedges, balance sheet remeasurements, currency devaluations and/or other adjustments.
Acquisition results are defined as the incremental period over period changes in the Company’s results directly attributable to acquisitions.
