Wyndham Reports Q3 Net Income of $187M, Up 15% Over Prior Year, System-Wide RevPAR Up 3.4%
October 23, 2013 11:54am
“Results for the quarter were excellent, with adjusted EPS growth of 25% and strong performance in each of our business units,” said Stephen P. Holmes, chairman and CEO. “Wyndham Hotel Group continues to expand its international footprint, Wyndham Exchange & Rentals is benefiting from recent innovations, and Wyndham Vacation Ownership continues to transform the business to an asset-light model. Overall, we have great momentum across the company, which when combined with our disciplined capital allocation strategy, will continue to create value for shareholders.”
Third quarter revenues were $1.4 billion, an increase of 13% from the prior year period.
Adjusted net income was $187 million, or $1.41 per diluted share, compared with $162 million, or $1.13 per diluted share for the same period in 2012. The increases in revenues and adjusted net income reflect stronger operating results across all of the Company’s businesses. EPS 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 third quarter of 2013 was $187 million, or $1.40 per diluted share, compared with $159 million, or $1.11 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012. Full reconciliations of adjusted results to GAAP results appear in Table 8 of this press release.
Free cash flow was $705 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, compared with $685 million for the same period in 2012, a 3% increase. The growth of free cash flow largely reflects stronger operating performance partially offset by higher capital expenditures. The Company defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, net cash provided by operating activities was $858 million, compared with $808 million in the prior year period.
Lodging (Wyndham Hotel Group)
Revenues were $297 million in the third quarter of 2013, a 19% increase over the third quarter of 2012. The increase reflects higher revenues from owned hotels, hotel franchise fees and management reimbursable fees as well as incremental global conference fees.
Domestic RevPAR increased 5.2% compared with the third quarter of 2012. Total system-wide RevPAR increased 3.4%, reflecting proportionally higher growth of lower RevPAR hotels in China.
EBITDA for the third quarter of 2013 was $95 million, a 10% increase compared with the third quarter of 2012. The increase was primarily due to higher RevPAR and the favorable timing of marketing expenditures.
As of September 30, 2013, the Company’s hotel system consisted of approximately 7,440 properties and over 638,300 rooms, a 3.3% room increase compared with the third quarter of 2012. The development pipeline included over 900 hotels and approximately 114,000 rooms, of which 60% were international and 66% were new construction.
Vacation Exchange and Rentals (Wyndham Exchange & Rentals)
Revenues were $470 million in the third quarter of 2013, a 12% increase over the third quarter of 2012. In constant currency and excluding the impact of acquisitions, revenues increased 7%.
Exchange revenues were $158 million, flat compared with the third quarter of 2012. In constant currency, exchange revenues were up 1%, as the average number of members increased 1.0% and exchange revenue per member increased 0.4%.
Vacation rental revenues were $293 million, an 18% increase compared with the third quarter of 2012. In constant currency and excluding acquisitions, vacation rental revenues were up 10%, reflecting a 6.7% increase in the average net price per vacation rental and a 3.1% increase in transaction volume. Results benefited from an improved pricing strategy and increased rental unit supply in Europe.
EBITDA for the third quarter of 2013 was $141 million, a 15% increase over the third quarter of 2012. Excluding the impact of acquisitions and foreign currency, EBITDA increased 6%.
Vacation Ownership (Wyndham Vacation Ownership)
Revenues were $677 million in the third quarter of 2013, an 11% increase over the third quarter of 2012. Excluding the impact of the Shell Vacations Club acquisition, revenues increased 6%, primarily reflecting higher gross VOI sales.
Gross VOI sales were $536 million in the third quarter of 2013, an increase of 7% over the third quarter of 2012, primarily reflecting an 8.7% increase in tour flow offset by a 1.6% decrease in volume per guest. Excluding Shell Vacations Club, volume per guest was flat.
Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2013 was $176 million, a 14% increase compared with the third quarter of 2012. Excluding the impact of the Shell Vacations Club acquisition, adjusted EBITDA increased 8%, primarily due to the revenue increases 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 2013, the Company expects:
