Travel + Leisure Co. Reports First Quarter 2021 Results

ORLANDO, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Travel + Leisure Co. (NYSE:TNL), the world’s leading membership and leisure travel company, today reported first quarter 2021 financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2021. Highlights and outlook include:

  • Net income of $29 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.33 on net revenue of $628 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $129 million and adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.39 (1)
  • Net cash provided by operating activities of $78 million and adjusted free cash flow of $20 million for the first three months of 2021
  • Fully paid down revolving credit facility and $250 million of secured notes
  • Executed $500 million term securitization with best terms in Company history
  • Expects second quarter adjusted EBITDA from $160 million to $170 million
  • Management will recommend a second quarter dividend of $0.30 per share for approval by the Board of Directors

“Our operating performance strengthened significantly in March, with a robust sequential improvement in our key metrics,” commented Michael D. Brown, president and CEO of Travel + Leisure Co. “Increased consumer confidence, reduced travel restrictions, and the vaccine roll-out have all helped to accelerate bookings and leisure travel demand.”

“We are encouraged by the strength of booking trends in March and into April in both the Vacation Ownership and Travel and Membership segments. In March, North American bookings for 2021-arrivals at both our businesses were up double-digits versus 2019, after double-digit declines in January and February. We are clearly seeing an inflection in travel sentiment which we believe points to a strong recovery in leisure travel heading into the summer,” said Brown.

(1) This press release includes adjusted EBITDA, adjusted diluted EPS, adjusted free cash flow, gross VOI sales and adjusted net income/(loss), which are metrics that are not calculated in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the U.S. (“GAAP”). See “Presentation of Financial Information” and the tables for the definitions and reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures in accordance with GAAP.

Business Segment Results

The results of operations during the first quarter of 2021 and 2020 include impacts related to the COVID-19 global pandemic, which have been significantly negative to the travel industry, the Company, its customers and employees. Refer to Table 8 for a breakout of COVID-19 related impacts.

Vacation Ownership revenue increased 11% to $449 million in the first quarter, primarily driven by the impact of the $225 million COVID-19 provision charge in the prior year. Gross vacation ownership interest (VOI) sales of $236 million was 43% below the prior year. Tours were 53% lower year-over-year, offset in part by higher Volume Per Guest (VPG), which increased 34% to $2,847.

First quarter adjusted EBITDA was $66 million compared to a loss of $75 million in the prior year. The increase was driven by cost savings initiatives and higher VPG in 2021 as well as the absence of the $170 million net COVID-19 loan loss provision charge in the first quarter of 2020.

Travel and Membership revenue increased 15% to $183 million in the first quarter. Domestic bookings began to improve, particularly in March, and net transactions in the first quarter were 513,000, an increase of 28% compared to the same period last year.

Adjusted EBITDA increased 70% to $75 million. The increase in adjusted EBITDA margin to 41% was primarily driven by margin expansion, due to increased revenue over the segment’s fixed cost base, as well as cost savings initiatives implemented in 2020.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

Net Debt — As of March 31, 2021, the Company’s leverage ratio for covenant purposes was 5.4x, well within the 7.5x amended covenant under the Company’s credit agreement. The Company had $3.4 billion of corporate debt outstanding as of March 31, 2021, which excluded $2.2 billion of non-recourse debt related to its securitized notes receivables portfolio. Additionally, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $322 million. The Company used cash on hand to fully pay down $547 million of its revolving credit facility and $250 million of secured notes due in March 2021. At the end of the first quarter, the Company had $1.3 billion of liquidity available in cash and cash equivalents and revolving credit facility availability.

Timeshare Receivables Financing — During the quarter, an affiliate of Travel + Leisure Co. closed on a $500 million term securitization transaction with a weighted average coupon of 1.57% and 98% advance rate, which were the best terms in the Company’s history.

Cash Flow For the three months ended March 31, 2021, net cash provided by operating activities was $78 million, compared to $57 million in the prior year period. Adjusted free cash flow was $20 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to negative $78 million in the same period of 2020.

Dividend The Company paid $26 million ($0.30 per share) in cash dividends on March 31, 2021 to shareholders of record as of March 15, 2021. Management will recommend a second quarter dividend of $0.30 per share for approval by the Company’s Board of Directors in May 2021.

Outlook

The Company is providing guidance regarding expectations for the second quarter of 2021:

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $160 million to $170 million
  • Gross VOI sales of $355 million to $365 million
  • Tours of 118,000 to 123,000
  • VPG to be approximately $2,800

This guidance is presented only on a non-GAAP basis because not all of the information necessary for a quantitative reconciliation of forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is available without unreasonable effort, primarily due to uncertainties relating to the occurrence or amount of these adjustments that may arise in the future.

Conference Call Information

Travel + Leisure Co. will hold a conference call with investors to discuss the Company’s results and outlook today at 8:30 a.m. ET. Participants may listen to a simultaneous webcast of the conference call, which may be accessed through the Company’s website at investor.travelandleisureco.com, or by dialing 866-342-8591, passcode TNL, 10 minutes before the scheduled start time. For those unable to listen to the live broadcast, an archive of the webcast will be available on the Company’s website for 90 days beginning at 12:00 p.m. ET today. Additionally, a telephone replay will be available for four days beginning at 12:00 p.m. ET today at 800-753-5575.

Presentation of Financial Information

Financial information discussed in this press release includes non-GAAP measures such as adjusted EBITDA, adjusted diluted EPS, adjusted free cash flow, gross VOI sales, and adjusted net income/(loss), which include or exclude certain items, as well as non-GAAP guidance. The Company utilizes non-GAAP measures, defined in Table 9, on a regular basis to assess performance of its reportable segments and allocate resources. 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 when considered with GAAP measures as an additional tool for further understanding and assessing the Company’s ongoing operating performance by adjusting for items which in our view do not necessarily reflect ongoing performance. Management also internally uses these measures to assess our operating performance, both absolutely and in comparison to other companies, and in evaluating or making selected compensation decisions. Exclusion of items in the Company’s non-GAAP presentation should not be considered an inference that these items are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. Full reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures for the reported periods appear in the financial tables section of the press release. See definitions on Table 9 for an explanation of our non-GAAP measures.

In connection with the Travel + Leisure brand acquisition we updated the names and composition of our reportable segments to better align with how they are managed. We created the Travel + Leisure Group which falls under the Travel and Membership segment along with the Panorama business line. With the formation of Travel + Leisure Group, we decided that the operations of our Extra Holidays business, which focuses on direct to consumer bookings, better aligns with the operations of this new business line and therefore transitioned the management of our Extra Holidays business to the Travel and Membership segment. As such, we reclassified the results of our Extra Holidays business, which were previously reported within the Vacation Ownership segment, into the Travel and Membership segment.

Amounts may not calculate due to rounding. The table above reconciles certain non-GAAP financial measures to their closest GAAP measure. The presentation of these adjustments is intended to permit the comparison of particular adjustments as they appear in the income statement in order to assist investors’ understanding of the overall impact of such adjustments. In addition to GAAP financial measures, the Company provides adjusted net income/(loss), adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted diluted EPS to assist our investors in evaluating our ongoing operating performance for the current reporting period and, where provided, over different reporting periods, by adjusting for certain items which in our view do not necessarily reflect ongoing performance. We also internally use these measures to assess our operating performance, both absolutely and in comparison to other companies, and in evaluating or making selected compensation decisions. These supplemental disclosures are in addition to GAAP reported measures. Non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for, nor superior to, financial results and measures determined or calculated in accordance with GAAP. Our presentation of adjusted measures may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures used by other companies. See “Presentation of Financial Information” and table 9 for the definitions of these non-GAAP measures.

(a)

Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets is excluded from adjusted net income/(loss) and adjusted EBITDA.

(b)

Reflects severance and other employee costs associated with layoffs due to the COVID-19 workforce reduction offset in part by employee retention credits received in connection with the U.S. CARES Act, ARPA and similar international programs for wages paid to certain employees despite having operations suspended. This amount does not include costs associated with idle pay.

(c)

Amounts represents the tax effect of the adjustments.

(d)

All stock-based compensation is excluded from adjusted EBITDA.

Definitions

Adjusted Diluted Earnings/(Loss) per Share: A non-GAAP measure, defined by the Company as Adjusted net income/(loss) from continuing operations divided by the diluted weighted average number of common shares.

Adjusted EBITDA: A non-GAAP measure, defined by the Company as net income/(loss) from continuing operations before depreciation and amortization, interest expense (excluding consumer financing interest), early extinguishment of debt, interest income (excluding consumer financing revenues) and income taxes, each of which is presented on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes stock-based compensation costs, separation and restructuring costs, legacy items, transaction costs and impairments, gains and losses on sale/disposition of business, and items that meet the conditions of unusual and/or infrequent. Legacy items include the resolution of and adjustments to certain contingent liabilities related to acquisitions of continuing businesses and dispositions, including the separation of Wyndham Hotels and Cendant and the sale of the European vacation rentals business. We believe that when considered with GAAP measures, Adjusted EBITDA is useful to assist our investors in evaluating our ongoing operating performance for the current reporting period and, where provided, over different reporting periods. We also internally use these measures to assess our operating performance, both absolutely and in comparison to other companies, and in evaluating or making selected compensation decisions. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income/(loss) or other income statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP and our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures used by other companies.

Adjusted Free Cash Flow: A non-GAAP measure, defined by the Company as net cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations less property and equipment additions (capital expenditures) plus the sum of proceeds and principal payments of non-recourse vacation ownership debt, while also adding back transaction costs for acquisitions and divestitures, separation adjustments associated with the spin-off of Wyndham Hotels, and certain adjustments related to COVID-19.

Adjusted Net Income/(Loss): A non-GAAP measure, defined by the Company as net income/(loss) from continuing operations adjusted to exclude separation and restructuring costs, amortization of acquisition-related assets, debt modification costs, impairments, gains and losses on sale/disposition of business, and items that meet the conditions of unusual and/or infrequent and the tax effect of such adjustments.

Free Cash Flow (FCF): A non-GAAP measure, defined by TNL as net cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations less property and equipment additions (capital expenditures) plus the sum of proceeds and principal payments of non-recourse vacation ownership debt. TNL believes FCF to be a useful operating performance measure to evaluate the ability of its operations to generate cash for uses other than capital expenditures and, after debt service and other obligations, its ability to grow its business through acquisitions and equity investments, as well as its ability to return cash to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases. A limitation of using FCF versus the GAAP measures of net cash provided by operating activities as a means for evaluating TNL is that FCF does not represent the total cash movement for the period as detailed in the consolidated statement of cash flows.

Gross Vacation Ownership Interest Sales: A non-GAAP measure, represents sales of vacation ownership interests (VOIs), including sales under the fee-for-service program before the effect of loan loss provisions. We believe that Gross VOI sales provide an enhanced understanding of the performance of our vacation ownership business because it directly measures the sales volume of this business during a given reporting period.

Leverage Ratio: The Company calculates leverage ratio as net debt divided by Adjusted EBITDA as defined in the credit agreement.

Net Debt: Net debt equals total debt outstanding, less non-recourse vacation ownership debt and cash and cash equivalents.

New owner sales, volume mix: Represents VOI sales (tour generated plus telephonic) to first time buyers as a percentage of total VOI sales.

New owner sales, transactions mix: Represents the number of first time buyer transactions as a percentage of the total number of VOIs sold during the period.

Tours: Represents the number of tours taken by guests in our efforts to sell VOIs.

Travel and Membership Revenue per Transaction: Represents transactional revenue divided by transactions, provided in two categories; Exchange, which is primarily RCI, and non-Exchange.

Travel and Membership Transactions: Represents the number of vacation bookings recognized as revenue during the period, net of cancellations, provided in two categories; Exchange, which is primarily RCI, and non-Exchange.

Volume Per Guest (VPG): Represents Gross VOI sales (excluding tele-sales upgrades, which are non-tour upgrade sales) divided by the number of tours. The Company has excluded non-tour upgrade sales in the calculation of VPG because non-tour upgrade sales are generated by a different marketing channel.
