SECOND QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS:
SECOND QUARTER 2014 OPERATING RESULTS
Second quarter revenues were $1.3 billion, an increase of 7% from the prior year period. The increase reflects growth in all of the Company's business segments.
Adjusted net income was $150 million, or $1.17 per diluted share, compared with $133 million, or $0.98 per diluted share for the same period in 2013. The performance reflects solid operating results across all of the Company's businesses and lower interest expense. EPS growth also benefited from the Company's share repurchase program.
Reported net income for the second quarter of 2014 was $153 million, or $1.20 per diluted share, compared with $133 million, or $0.98 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2013. Reported net income included items excluded from adjusted net income. The net result of these items favorably impacted second quarter 2014 net income by $3 million. Full reconciliations of adjusted results to GAAP results appear in Table 8 of this press release.
Free cash flow was $695 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014, compared with $654 million for the same period in 2013. The growth of free cash flow largely reflects favorable timing of working capital. The Company defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. For the six months ended June 30, 2014, net cash provided by operating activities was $793 million, compared with $758 million in the prior year period.
BUSINESS UNIT RESULTS
Lodging (Wyndham Hotel Group)
Revenues were $283 million in the second quarter of 2014, an 8% increase over the second quarter of 2013. The increase predominantly reflects higher RevPAR.
Domestic RevPAR increased 8.8%, partially offset by a 1.8% decline in international RevPAR, resulting in a 5.6% increase in total system-wide RevPAR compared with the second quarter of 2013. International RevPAR declined due to unfavorable currency movements and growth in lower-RevPAR countries such as China.
Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2014 was $87 million, a 12% increase compared with the second quarter of 2013. The increase was primarily due to higher RevPAR.
As of June 30, 2014, the Company's hotel system consisted of approximately 7,540 properties and 650,200 rooms, a 2.4% room increase compared with the second quarter of 2013. The development pipeline included over 970 hotels and approximately 117,000 rooms, of which 57% were international and 67% were new construction.
Vacation Exchange and Rentals (Wyndham Exchange & Rentals)
Revenues were $402 million in the second quarter of 2014, a 7% increase over the second quarter of 2013. In constant currency and excluding the impact of acquisitions, revenues were up 3%.
Exchange revenues were $168 million, flat compared with the second quarter of 2013, as a 1.7% increase in average number of members was offset by a 1.8% decline in exchange revenue per member.
Vacation rental revenues were $217 million, a 13% increase over the second quarter of 2013. Excluding the impact of foreign currency and acquisitions, vacation rental revenues were up 6%, reflecting a 4.9% increase in transaction volume and a 1.2% increase in the average net price per vacation rental.
Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2014 was $87 million, a 2% increase compared with the second quarter of 2013.
Vacation Ownership (Wyndham Vacation Ownership)
Revenues were $673 million in the second quarter of 2014, a 7% increase over the second quarter of 2013, primarily reflecting higher gross VOI sales and a lower loan loss provision.
Gross VOI sales were $496 million in the second quarter of 2014, an increase of 3% over the second quarter of 2013, reflecting a 1.1% increase in volume per guest, a 1.0% increase in tour flow and increased tele-sales upgrades.
Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2014 was $185 million, a 15% increase compared with the second quarter of 2013, primarily reflecting the revenue increases.
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.

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.
