"At the end of an extraordinary year, I’m proud to report our team delivered a robust fourth quarter, with sequential improvement in vacation ownership interest (VOI) sales and adjusted EBITDA. Our resilient business model allowed us to weather an extremely difficult year in the travel industry. The early actions we took to transform our business and reduce costs enabled us to deliver positive adjusted free cash flow for the full year, as well as adjusted EBITDA margins of over 20% in the second half," said Michael D. Brown, president and CEO of Travel + Leisure Co.

"The strength of our business has allowed us to execute several strategic growth initiatives despite the macro headwinds. We successfully launched Panorama in 2020 and we acquired the Travel + Leisure brand and travel club businesses in January of this year. Both initiatives position the Company for future success, allowing us to expand more broadly into the larger leisure travel market."

(1) This press release includes adjusted EBITDA, adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations, adjusted free cash flow from continuing operations, gross VOI sales and adjusted net income/(loss) from continuing operations, 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 fourth quarter of 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.

Travel and Membership revenue decreased 25% to $135 million and adjusted EBITDA decreased 11% to $49 million in the fourth quarter. The 600 basis point increase in adjusted EBITDA margin to 36% in the fourth quarter was primarily driven by cost saving initiatives. Cancellations in the fourth quarter were elevated relative to 2019, due to travel restrictions, and Exchange gross bookings were down just 3% for the quarter compared to the prior year.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

Net Debt — As of December 31, 2020, the Company's leverage ratio for covenant purposes was 5.4x, well within the 7.5x amended covenant. The Company had $4.2 billion of corporate debt outstanding as of December 31, 2020, which excluded $2.2 billion of non-recourse debt related to its securitized notes receivable. Additionally, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $1.2 billion. The Company's next long-term debt maturity is $250 million of secured notes due March 2021. At the end of the fourth quarter, the Company had $1.6 billion of liquidity in cash and cash equivalents and revolving credit facility capacity.

Timeshare Receivables Financing The Company renewed its $800 million conduit facility on October 27, 2020 and extended the maturity date to October 31, 2022.

Cash Flow For the full-year 2020, net cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations was $374 million compared to $453 million in the prior year. Adjusted free cash flow from continuing operations was $35 million in 2020 compared to $617 million in the prior year.

Share Repurchases The Company suspended share repurchase activity in the first quarter of 2020. For the full-year 2020, the Company repurchased 3.1 million shares of common stock for $125 million at a weighted average price of $40.79 per share.

Dividend The Company paid $26 million ($0.30 per share) in cash dividends on December 30, 2020 to shareholders of record as of December 15, 2020. For the full-year 2020, Travel + Leisure Co. paid an aggregate $138 million in dividends to shareholders.

Other

Travel + Leisure Brand Acquisition — On January 5, 2021, Wyndham Destinations acquired the Travel + Leisure brand from Meredith Corporation. On February 17, 2021, Wyndham Destinations, Inc. changed its name to Travel + Leisure Co. and began trading under the ticker symbol NYSE:TNL. The $100 million acquisition was funded with cash on hand of $35 million paid at closing, with trailing payments to be completed by June 2024. The acquisition is expected to be neutral to earnings in the first year and accretive in the second year.

Outlook

For the first quarter of 2021, the Company expects adjusted EBITDA to range from $95 million to $110 million.

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 877-876-9173, 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 800-695-0974.

Presentation of Financial Information

Financial information discussed in this press release includes non-GAAP measures such as adjusted EBITDA, adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations, adjusted free cash flow from continuing operations, gross VOI sales and adjusted net income from continuing operations, 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.

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) from continuing operations, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations 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 the tables for the definitions and reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures.

(a)

 

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

(b)

 

In the three months ended December 31, 2020, the amount represent the tax effect of the adjustments totaling $8 million, offset by $3 million of non-cash tax expense associated with COVID-19 related increases to valuation allowances and $5 million of additional tax related to the Company's former rentals businesses. In the three months ended December 31, 2019, the amount represents $13 million of tax expense related to the separation of the hotel business and $8 million of net tax effects of the adjustments. In the twelve months ended December 31, 2020, the amounts represent the tax effect of the adjustments totaling $54 million, partially offset by $9 million of non-cash tax expense associated with COVID-19 related increases to valuation allowances and $5 million of additional tax related to the Company's former rentals businesses. In the twelve months ended December 31, 2019, the amount represents $13 million of tax expense related to the separation of the hotel business partially offset by $7 million of net tax effects of the adjustments.

(c)

 

All stock-based compensation is excluded from adjusted EBITDA.

Non-GAAP Measure: Reconciliation of Net VOI Sales to Gross VOI Sales

The Company believes gross VOI sales provide an enhanced understanding of the performance of its vacation clubs business because it directly measures the sales volume of this business during a given reporting period.

 

The following table provides a reconciliation of Net VOI sales (see Table 4) to Gross VOI sales (see Table 3):

Table 9

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 Consolidated Statements of Income. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes stock-based compensation costs, separation and restructuring costs, transaction costs and impairments, gains and losses on sale/disposition of business, and items that meet the conditions of unusual and/or infrequent. 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 from Continuing Operations: 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) from continuing operations: 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.

Average Number of Members: Represents paid members in our vacation exchange programs who are current on their annual membership dues or within the allowed grace period.

Exchange Revenue Per Member: Represents total revenues generated from fees associated with memberships, exchange transactions, and other servicing for the period divided by the average number of vacation exchange members during the period.

Free Cash Flow from Continuing Operations (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.

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

Travel and Membership Transactions: Represents the number of vacation transactions booked during the period, net of cancellations.

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.
