Wyndham Worldwide Corporation Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Updates Earnings Guidance for the Full Year of 2015
Apr 28 15
Wyndham Worldwide Corporation reported consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the period, the company’s revenues were $1.3 billion, an increase of 6% from $1.2 billion for the prior year period. In constant currency revenues increased 9%, reflecting growth across the company's business segments. Adjusted EBITDA increased 14% to $279 million compared with $244 million for the first quarter of 2014. In constant currency, adjusted EBITDA increased 18%. Reported net income was $122 million, or $1.00 per diluted share, compared with $90 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2014. Reported net income in both periods reflects several items excluded from adjusted net income. The net result of these items unfavorably impacted first quarter 2015 net income by $4 million and unfavorably impacted first quarter 2014 net income by $12 million. Free cash flow was $197 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015, compared with $269 million for the same period in 2014. The decline in free cash flow reflects the timing of working capital including inventory spending. The Company defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. For the three months ended March 31, 2015, net cash provided by operating activities was $253 million, compared with $315 million in the prior year period. Operating income was $216 million compared to $171 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was $198 million compared to $149 million a year ago. Adjusted net income was $126 million, or $1.03 per diluted share, compared with $102 million, or $0.78 per diluted share for the same period in 2014. The increase reflects stronger financial results in all of the company's businesses. EPS also benefited from the company's share repurchase program, which decreased weighted average diluted share count by 6% year-over-year.
The company updated earnings guidance for the full year of 2015. 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 2015, the company reiterates guidance as revenues of approximately $5.450 billion to $5.550 billion; and adjusted EBITDA of approximately $1.285 billion to $1.315 billion. Guidance reflects a $42 million adverse impact from foreign exchange compared with 2014 full year results. For the full year 2015, the company updated the guidance as adjusted diluted EPS of approximately $4.81 to $4.96 based on a diluted share count of 121.4 million up from $4.75 to $4.90 based on a diluted share count of 123 million. The company expects free cash flow for the full year 2015 of approximately $800 million compared with $749 million in free cash flow in 2014.
