PARSIPPANY, N.J., Oct. 26, 2016 -- 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
