Wyndham Worldwide Reports Third Quarter 2016 Results

PARSIPPANY, N.J., Oct. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Wyndham Worldwide Corporation (NYSE: WYN) today announced results for the three months ended September 30, 2016.

Third quarter revenues were $1.6 billion, up 1% compared with the prior year period. In constant currency and excluding acquisitions, revenues also increased 1%.  Full reconciliations of GAAP results to non-GAAP measures appear in the tables to this press release.

Net income for the third quarter of 2016 was $196 million, or $1.78 per diluted share, compared with $190 million, or $1.61 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2015. Adjusted net income for the third quarter of 2016 was $207 million, or $1.89 per diluted share, compared with $210 million, or $1.78 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2015. EPS benefited from the Company's share repurchase program. 

Third quarter EBITDA was $402 million, compared with $382 million in the prior year period, an increase of 5%. Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes charges in both 2016 and 2015 as detailed in Table 8 of this press release, was $423 million, compared with $412 million in the prior year period, an increase of 3%. On a currency-neutral basis and excluding acquisitions, adjusted EBITDA increased 5%.

"Wyndham continues to deliver solid earnings and strong cash flow," said Stephen P. Holmes, chairman and CEO.  "These results reflect successful execution of our strategy, a resilient portfolio of complementary, fee-based businesses, and disciplined capital allocation."

For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, net cash provided by operating activities was $786 million, compared with $817 million in the prior year period. The decrease reflects unfavorable currency movements of $34 million, including a $24 million devaluation of the Venezuelan bolivar in the first quarter of 2016.

Free cash flow was $650 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, compared with $660 million for the same period in 2015, reflecting the currency movements referenced above partially offset by lower capital expenditures. The Company defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. 

THIRD QUARTER 2016 BUSINESS UNIT RESULTS

Hotel Group
Revenues were $364 million in the third quarter of 2016, compared with $357 million in the third quarter of 2015. Revenues reflected higher royalties, growth in the Company's Wyndham Rewards credit card program and fees associated with the Company's global franchise conference, partially offset by lower reimbursable property management revenues.

EBITDA was $107 million in the third quarter compared with $83 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes charges and benefits during both 2016 and 2015 as detailed in Table 8 of this press release, grew 8% to $117 million. This reflects higher royalties, growth in the Company's Wyndham Rewards credit card program and expense management.

Third quarter domestic RevPAR increased 1.9%. In constant currency, total system-wide same store RevPAR increased 1.4% compared with the third quarter of 2015, which reflects ongoing pressure in domestic and Canadian oil markets and decelerating industry RevPAR trends. 

As of September 30, 2016, the Company's hotel system consisted of approximately 7,930 properties and approximately 689,800 rooms, a 2.7% net room increase compared with the third quarter of 2015. The development pipeline included nearly 1,100 hotels and approximately 133,800 rooms, of which 60% were international and 66% were new construction.

Destination Network
Revenues were $486 million in the third quarter of 2016, compared with $476 million in the third quarter of 2015, an increase of 2%. In constant currency and excluding acquisitions, revenues increased 5%.

Exchange revenues were $159 million compared with $157 million in the prior year quarter. In constant currency, exchange revenues grew 2% as exchange revenue per member increased 1.4% and the average number of members increased 0.9%.

Vacation rental revenues were $304 million compared with $296 million in the prior year quarter. In constant currency and excluding the impact of acquisitions, vacation rental revenues were up 6%, reflecting an 8.0% increase in transaction volume, partially offset by a 1.7% decrease in average net price per vacation rental. Transaction growth benefited from our dynamic pricing initiative as well as capacity increases. Faster growth in our more moderately priced products decreased the average net price per rental.

EBITDA was $138 million during the third quarter compared with $134 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes restructuring costs, was $142 million for the third quarter of 2016, a 4% increase compared with the prior year quarter. On a currency-neutral basis and excluding the impact of acquisitions, adjusted EBITDA increased 8% compared with the prior year period.

Vacation Ownership
Revenues were $744 million in the third quarter of 2016, compared with $750 million in the third quarter of 2015. 

Net VOI sales in the third quarter of 2016 declined 2% due to a higher provision for loan losses and flat Gross VOI sales. Results reflect tour flow growth of 1.3%, offset by a volume per guest (VPG) decline of 1.4%, reflecting proportionally higher sales to new owners. The number of new owners added increased 10% from the third quarter of 2015.

EBITDA was $189 million during the third quarter compared with $200 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes restructuring costs, was $195 million for the third quarter of 2016, a decline of 3% compared with the prior year quarter. This reflects a higher loan loss provision and higher marketing costs, partially offset by higher property management fees, increased consumer financing income and expense management.

OTHER ITEMS

  • The Company repurchased 2.1 million shares of common stock for $150 million during the third quarter of 2016. From October 1 through October 25, 2016, the Company repurchased an additional 0.7 million shares for $50 million
  • Net interest expense in the third quarter of 2016 was $32 million, compared with $31 million in the third quarter of 2015.

  • Cash and cash equivalents of $332 million, compared with $171 million at December 31, 2015
  • Vacation ownership contract receivables, net, of $2.8 billion, compared with $2.7 billion at December 31, 2015

The Company provides the following guidance for the full year 2016:

  • Revenues of approximately $5.650 billion.
  • Adjusted net income of approximately $630 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $1.375 billion.

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 EBITDA to Net income attributable to Wyndham shareholders for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015:

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 2013-2016.  

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:
