Wyndham Worldwide Reports First Quarter 2015 Earnings
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.

Other Items

  • The Company repurchased 1.7 million shares of common stock for $150 million during the first quarter of 2015.  From April 1 through April 27, 2015, the Company repurchased an additional 0.5 million shares for $45 million.  The Company's remaining share repurchase authorization totals $821 million as of April 27, 2015.
  • Reported net interest expense in the first quarter of 2015 was $23 million, compared with $25 million in the first quarter of 2014. 

Balance Sheet Information as of March 31, 2015:

  • Cash and cash equivalents of $180 million, compared with $183 million at December 31, 2014
  • Vacation ownership contract receivables, net, of $2.6 billion, compared with $2.7 billion at December 31, 2014
  • Vacation ownership and other inventory of $1.2 billion, unchanged from December 31, 2014
  • Securitized vacation ownership debt of $2.2 billion, unchanged from December 31, 2014

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

  • Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $1.285 - $1.315 billion. Guidance reflects a $42 million adverse impact from foreign exchange compared with 2014 full year results.

For the full year 2015, the Company updates the following guidance:

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:

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).
