Wyndham Worldwide Reports First Quarter 2018 Results
Key Metrics Reflect Robust Growth and Strong Execution
Planned Separation into Two Independent, Publicly Traded Companies Expected to be Completed Later This Quarter

PARSIPPANY, N.J., May 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Wyndham Worldwide Corporation (NYSE: WYN) today announced results for the three months ended March 31, 2018.  Full reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP measures for all reported periods appear in the tables to this press release.

First quarter revenues from continuing operations were $1.2 billion, an increase of 3% compared with the prior-year period.  Results reflect the required adoption of the new revenue recognition standard, which had an immaterial year-over-year impact on the Company's results on a comparable basis.

Net income from continuing operations in the first quarter of 2018 was $81 million compared with $127 million for the first quarter of 2017.  Diluted earnings per share (EPS) from continuing operations were $0.80, versus $1.20 in the prior-year period.  Net income from continuing operations was impacted by $53 million ($0.53 per diluted share) of after-tax separation- and transaction-related costs in first quarter 2018.

Adjusted net income from continuing operations was $134 million or $1.33 per diluted share, compared with $106 million or $1.01 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2017.  Adjusted diluted EPS increased 32%, and 10% excluding the benefit of a reduced effective income tax rate.  Adjusted results exclude separation costs and other items as detailed in Tables 7 and 8 of this press release.  The growth in adjusted earnings primarily reflects higher revenues in all three of the Company's operating segments, hurricane-related insurance recoveries and lower taxes, partially offset by increased interest expense.  Adjusted diluted EPS also reflects the benefit of the Company's share repurchase program.

"We've started the year with strong growth in our businesses," said Stephen P. Holmes, chairman and CEO. "Our teams delivered solid financial results while executing on several key strategic initiatives, including the pending sale of our European vacation rentals business, the planned spin-off of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts into a separate publicly traded company, and the pending acquisition of La Quinta's hotel franchising and hotel management business."    

First quarter EBITDA from continuing operations was $221 million, compared with $237 million in the prior-year period, due to separation-related costs recorded in first quarter 2018.  Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations increased 10%, to $274 million, compared with $249 million in the first quarter of 2017.  Results primarily reflect the growth in revenues as well as an approximately $5 million net benefit from hurricane-related impacts and insurance proceeds. 

FIRST QUARTER 2018 BUSINESS UNIT RESULTS

Hotel Group
Revenues increased 4% to $302 million in the first quarter of 2018, compared with $289 million in first quarter 2017.  Results reflect higher royalties and franchise fees as well as higher marketing, reservation and Wyndham Rewards revenues, which are generally offset in expenses.   

EBITDA was $83 million in the first quarter, unchanged from the prior-year quarter, primarily due to $12 million of separation- and acquisition-related costs.  Adjusted EBITDA was $98 million compared with $84 million in the prior-year period, an increase of 17%, primarily reflecting the growth in revenue and a net benefit of $6 million from hurricane-related insurance recoveries and costs.  

First quarter domestic RevPAR increased 5.6% compared with first quarter 2017.  Global RevPAR increased 7.0%, and 4.7% in constant currency.

As of March 31, 2018, the Company's hotel system consisted of over 8,300 properties and approximately 723,000 rooms, a 3% increase compared with a year earlier that includes almost 12,000 rooms the Company added with the acquisition of AmericInn in October 2017.  The development pipeline increased to over 1,100 hotels and nearly 147,700 rooms, a 3% year-over-year room increase, of which 58% are international and 67% are new construction.  

Destination Network
Revenues were $246 million in the first quarter of 2018, compared with $243 million in the first quarter of 2017, an increase of 1%.  The average number of members increased 1%, while exchange revenue per member declined 1%.

EBITDA was $66 million compared with $75 million in the first quarter of 2017, reflecting $11 million of separation costs.  Adjusted EBITDA was $77 million compared with $75 million in the prior-year period, an increase of 3%, primarily reflecting hurricane-related insurance recoveries and cost savings.

This segment no longer includes the Company's European vacation rentals business, which is classified as a discontinued operation. 

Vacation Ownership
Revenues were $661 million in the first quarter of 2018, compared with $639 million in the first quarter of 2017, an increase of 3%.  The increase reflects 6% growth in both gross vacation ownership interest (VOI) sales and consumer financing revenues, partially offset by a higher provision for loan losses.  Tour flow increased 8% and sales volume per guest (VPG) declined 2%, driven by increased tours to new owners.  New owner sales volume increased 19% year-over-year.   

EBITDA was $124 million in the first quarter of 2018 compared with $117 million in the prior-year quarter.  Adjusted EBITDA was $129 million compared with $122 million in the prior-year quarter, an increase of 6%.  Results primarily reflect the growth in revenues.

OTHER ITEMS

  • Upcoming Separation – As previously announced, the Company plans to separate into two publicly traded hospitality companies through the spin-off of the Company's Hotel Group business to shareholders.  In the spin-off, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, Inc. will become an independent hotel franchising and hotel management company whose common stock is expected to trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker "WH."  In conjunction with the spin-off, Wyndham Worldwide will change its name to Wyndham Destinations, Inc. and will be primarily comprised of Wyndham's Vacation Ownership and Destination Network operations, making it the world's largest vacation ownership and exchange company.  Wyndham Destinations' stock will trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker "WYND."  The separation process has been proceeding as planned, and the Company expects to complete the spin-off this quarter.
  • Sale of European Vacation Rentals Business – In the first quarter, the Company agreed to sell its European vacation rentals business to an affiliate of Platinum Equity for approximately $1.3 billion in cash. This transaction is expected to be completed this quarter.
  • La Quinta Acquisition – As previously announced, the Company has agreed to purchase La Quinta Holdings' hotel franchising and hotel management operations for $1.95 billion in cash.  The acquisition will add approximately 900 managed and/or franchised hotels to our Hotel Group's portfolio and is expected to close this quarter.  In preparation for the La Quinta acquisition and the spin-off, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts issued $500 million of senior unsecured notes due 2026 and arranged for commitments from lenders for a $1.6 billion senior secured term loan facility.  Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has also arranged a $750 million senior secured revolving credit facility, which it expects to be undrawn at the time of spin-off and acquisition of La Quinta.  
  • Share Repurchases – The Company repurchased 0.6 million shares of common stock for $75 million during the first quarter of 2018 at an average price of $115.91.  From April 1 through May 1, 2018, the Company repurchased an additional 0.2 million shares for $22 million
  • Sale of Knights Inn In April, the Company agreed to sell its Knights Inn franchise brand, consisting of approximately 350 franchised hotels with 21,000 rooms, to Red Lion Hotels for approximately $27 million in cash.  The transaction is expected to close this quarter.
  • New Revenue Recognition Standard – In the first quarter, the Company adopted the new U.S. GAAP revenue recognition standard, as required.  This new standard reduced previously reported first quarter 2017 revenues and adjusted EBITDA by $14 million and $3 million, respectively, and reduced first quarter 2018 revenues and adjusted EBITDA by $16 million and $3 million, respectively.

OUTLOOK

Note to Editors: The Company has classified its European vacation rentals business, which it has agreed to sell, as a discontinued operation; its results are therefore excluded from the outlook below.  In addition, the outlook excludes possible future share repurchases.  Analysts' estimates may include projections of the European vacation rentals business and/or include projected share repurchases, and may not have been adjusted to reflect the impact of the new U.S. GAAP revenue recognition standard.  These factors may result in discrepancies between the Company's projections and database consensus forecasts.

The Company's outlook for 2018 adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations is unchanged from the outlook it provided in February.  The Company projects the following results for full-year 2018:

  • Revenues of $5.195 billion to $5.335 billion, an increase of 4% to 7%. The change from the Company's prior projection is entirely due to the impact of the new revenue recognition standard, which did not affect projected year-over-year revenue growth calculated on a comparable basis
  • An effective tax rate applicable to adjusted pretax earnings of approximately 25%.
  • Adjusted net income from continuing operations of $702 million to $717 million, an increase of 25% to 28%, approximately 19 points of which is due to a lower effective tax rate.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $1.330 billion to $1.355 billion, which represents year-over-year growth of 7% to 9% and is comprised of:
    • Hotel Group adjusted EBITDA of $445 million to $455 million
    • Destination Network adjusted EBITDA of $265 million to $275 million
    • Vacation Ownership adjusted EBITDA of $735 million to $750 million
  • Adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations of $6.96 to $7.11, which is an increase of 28% to 31% and is based on a diluted share count of 100.8 million.

These projections exclude the impact of the La Quinta acquisition and the financing thereof, exclude any impact from our European vacation rentals business, which is treated as a discontinued operation, and exclude costs associated with the Company's planned separation into two separate publicly traded companies.  Projections now reflect the required change in revenue recognition accounting.  See Table 12 for detailed projections.  In addition, we are publishing two presentations on our website (http://investor.wyndhamworldwide.com) with additional information on our projections for the two separate companies post-spin.

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.

CONFERENCE CALL INFORMATION
Wyndham Worldwide Corporation will hold a conference call with investors to discuss the Company's results and outlook on Wednesday, May 2, 2018 at 8:30 a.m. ET. Listeners can access the webcast live through the Company's website at http://www.wyndhamworldwide.com/investors/.  The conference call may also be accessed by calling 877-876-9177 and providing the passcode WYNDHAM.  Listeners are urged to call at least 10 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.  An archive of this webcast will be available on the website for approximately 90 days beginning at 12:00 p.m. ET on May 2, 2018.  A telephone replay will be available for approximately 10 days beginning at 12:00 p.m. ET on May 2, 2018 at 800-374-1375.

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 this 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 its investors in evaluating its 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 the Company's view do not necessarily reflect ongoing operating performance. The Company also internally uses these measures to assess its 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, 2018 and 2017:

The Company believes gross VOI sales provide an enhanced understanding of the performance of its vacation ownership business because it directly measures the sales volume of this business during a given reporting period. See Table 11 for a reconciliation of Gross VOI sales to vacation ownership interest sales.


Tours: Represents the number of tours taken by guests in the Company's 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 11 for a detail of tele-sales upgrades for 2016-2018. 


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:


The Company defines free cash flow to be net cash provided by operating activities less property and equipment additions which the Company also refers to as capital expenditures. The Company believes free cash flow to be a useful operating performance measure to evaluate the ability of its operations to generate cash for uses other than capital expenditures and, after debt service and other obligations, its ability to grow its business through acquisitions, development advances and equity investments, as well as its 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:

(b) Primarily relates to costs incurred in connection with the Company's planned acquisition of La Quinta Holdings.

(c) Represents the reversal of an accrued acquisition-related contingency associated with the Company's Rio Mar property.

(d) Relates to expenses associated with restructuring initiatives at the Company's corporate operations which focused on rationalizing its sourcing function and outsourcing certain information technology functions as well at its Hotel Group segment which primarily focused on realigning its brand operations.

(e) Represents a non-cash impairment charge related to the write-down of assets resulting from the decision to abandon a new product initiative at the Company's vacation ownership business.

(f) The amount for 2018 relates to the tax effect of the adjustments amounting to $12 million offset by tax charges of $12 million resulting from certain internal restructuring actions associated with the planned divestiture of the Company's European vacation rentals business.

(g) The amount for 2017 relates to (i) the tax effect of the adjustments and (ii) a tax benefit on foreign currency losses recognized from an internal restructuring.


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 its investors in evaluating its 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 the Company's view do not necessarily reflect ongoing performance. The Company also internally uses these measures to assess its 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.
