PARSIPPANY, N.J., Feb. 7, 2014 -- Wyndham Worldwide Corporation (NYSE:WYN) today announced results for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013.
"We finished the year with another strong quarter, marking our fourth consecutive year of double-digit growth in adjusted EPS," said Stephen P. Holmes, chairman and CEO. "We are excited about our prospects for 2014 as we continue to execute and innovate across our businesses and maintain our capital allocation discipline to enhance value for shareholders."
FOURTH QUARTER 2013 OPERATING RESULTS
Fourth quarter revenues were $1.2 billion, an increase of 9% from the prior year period. The increase reflects growth in all of the Company's business segments.
Adjusted net income was $96 million, or $0.73 per diluted share, compared with $89 million, or $0.63 per diluted share for the same period in 2012. The increases reflect stronger operating results in the Company's lodging and vacation ownership businesses. EPS growth also benefited from the Company's share repurchase program, which decreased weighted average diluted share count by 7% year-over-year.
Reported net income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $86 million, or $0.65 per diluted share, compared with $81 million, or $0.57 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2012. Reported net income included several items not included in adjusted net income. The net result of these items unfavorably impacted fourth quarter 2013 net income by $10 million and unfavorably impacted fourth quarter 2012 net income by $8 million. Full reconciliations of adjusted results to GAAP results appear in Table 8 of this press release.
FULL YEAR 2013 OPERATING RESULTS
Revenues for full year 2013 were $5.0 billion, an increase of 10% over the prior-year period. Adjusted net income for the full year 2013 was $515 million, or $3.83 per diluted share, compared with $469 million, or $3.23 per diluted share, for the prior year. The increases reflect stronger operating results across all of the Company's businesses. EPS growth also benefited from the Company's share repurchase program, which decreased weighted average diluted share count by 7% compared with 2012.
Reported net income for full year 2013 was $432 million, or $3.21 per diluted share, compared with reported net income of $400 million, or $2.75 per diluted share, for the prior-year period. Reported net income included several items not included in adjusted net income. The net result of these items unfavorably impacted full year 2013 net income by $83 million and unfavorably impacted full year 2012 net income by $69 million. Full reconciliations of adjusted results to GAAP results appear in Table 8 of this press release.
Free cash flow was $770 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, compared with $796 million for the same period in 2012, reflecting higher capital expenditures. The Company defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. For the year ended December 31, 2013, net cash provided by operating activities was $1,008 million, compared with $1,004 million in the prior year period.
BUSINESS UNIT RESULTS
Lodging (Wyndham Hotel Group)
Revenues were $245 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, a 10% increase over the fourth quarter of 2012. The increase reflects higher RevPAR, a larger system size and increased hotel management reimbursable fees.
Domestic RevPAR increased 4.7% compared with the fourth quarter of 2012. Total system-wide RevPAR increased 3.8%, reflecting proportionally higher growth of lower RevPAR hotels in China.
Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $64 million, a 3% increase compared with the fourth quarter of 2012. The increase was primarily due to higher RevPAR and a larger system size, partially offset by the unfavorable timing of marketing expenditures. Adjusted EBITDA excludes a $9 million restructuring charge and $8 million of non-cash asset impairment charges.
As of December 31, 2013, the Company's hotel system consisted of approximately 7,490 properties and over 645,400 rooms, a 2.9% room increase compared with the fourth quarter of 2012. The development pipeline included over 970 hotels and approximately 114,000 rooms, of which 58% were international and 68% were new construction.
Vacation Exchange and Rentals (Wyndham Exchange & Rentals)
Revenues were $305 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, a 4% increase over the fourth quarter of 2012. In constant currency and excluding the impact of acquisitions, revenues increased 1%.
Exchange revenues were $150 million, a decline of 2% from the fourth quarter of 2012. In constant currency, exchange revenues were flat, as a 1.6% increase in average number of members was offset by a 1.8% decline in exchange revenue per member.
Vacation rental revenues were $138 million, a 10% increase over the fourth quarter of 2012. In constant currency and excluding acquisitions, vacation rental revenues were up 4%, reflecting a 4.4% increase in the average net price per vacation rental and flat transaction volume.
Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $36 million, compared with $42 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, primarily reflecting the impact of seasonality from acquisitions and foreign currency movements.
Vacation Ownership (Wyndham Vacation Ownership)
Revenues were $658 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, a 12% increase over the fourth quarter of 2012, primarily reflecting higher gross VOI sales.
Gross VOI sales were $488 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, an increase of 12% over the fourth quarter of 2012, primarily reflecting a 6.6% increase in tour flow and a 6.5% increase in volume per guest.
Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $172 million, a 19% increase compared with the fourth quarter of 2012, primarily due to higher gross VOI sales and a lower loan loss provision.
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.
For the full year 2014, the Company provides 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.
