DISCUSSION OF RESULTS
Second Quarter 2013 Consolidated Operating Results
Consolidated revenue for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013 was $125 million, an increase of 5.3% from $118.7 million for the second quarter of 2012. Net income for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was $20.6 million, an increase of 104.6% from net income of $10.1 million for the same period of 2012.
Operating results for the second quarter of 2013 reflect the correction of an immaterial net understatement of membership revenue, related membership expenses, and income for the period commencing January 1, 2011 through March 31, 2013. The out of period correction of this item resulted in the recognition of $4.1 million of membership revenue and $0.6 million of certain membership expenses in the three months ended June 30, 2013. Consequently, operating income and net income for the second quarter of 2013 were increased by $3.5 million and $2.1 million, respectively, or $0.04 of diluted earnings per share.
Excluding the impact of the prior period item discussed above, non-GAAP consolidated revenue for the second quarter of 2013 increased by 1.9% to $120.9 million on a year-over-year basis. This increase was driven primarily by stronger transaction revenue of $1.1 million generated by our Membership and Exchange segment and a rise in RevPAR of 9.9% at Aston.
Non-GAAP net income (defined below) for the second quarter of 2013 was $18.5 million, an increase of $8.4 million from net income of $10.1 million for the same period of 2012. The year-over-year increase in non-GAAP net income reflects higher operating income of $6.3 million, primarily attributable to $5.4 million of lower amortization of intangibles expense, and a $7.2 million reduction in interest expense. Accordingly, income tax expense increased by $5.7 million. Second quarter 2013 non-GAAP diluted earnings per share (defined below) were $0.32 compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.18for the same period of 2012.
Adjusted EBITDA (defined below) was $38.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, compared to $37.3 million for the same period of 2012.
Business Segment Results
Membership and Exchange
Membership and Exchange segment revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was $95.5 million, an increase of 6.5% from the comparable period in 2012. Excluding the impact of the prior period item, revenue for this segment increased 1.9% to $91.5 million in the current quarter compared to the prior year.
For the second quarter of 2013, transaction revenue was $50.2 million, an increase of 2.2%, and membership fee revenue (defined below) was $36.8 million, which includes $4.1 million related to the prior period item.
Total active Interval Network members at June 30, 2013 were approximately 1,821,000, a decrease of 2.1% from June 30, 2012. The reduction in members was primarily due to fewer new members entering from the developer point of sale. Average revenue per member for the second quarter of 2013 was $48.59, representing an increase of 7.7% from $45.11in the prior year. On a non-GAAP basis, average revenue per member was $46.37 in the current quarter, higher by 2.8% year-over-year. During the second quarter of 2013, Interval affiliated 14 vacation ownership resorts in domestic and international markets.
Membership and Exchange segment adjusted EBITDA was $36.1 million in the second quarter, an increase of 4.3% from the second quarter of 2012. The improvement in adjusted EBITDA primarily resulted from stronger transaction revenue and greater adoption of our Platinum and Club Interval products on a year-over-year basis.
Management and Rental
Management and Rental segment revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was $29.5 million, including $14.2 million of management fee and rental revenue (defined below). Management fee and rental revenue grew by 4.1% on a year-over-year basis. The improvement in management fee and rental revenue was primarily due to higher RevPAR at Aston. Aston RevPAR for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 was $129.17 compared to $117.49 for the same period in 2012, driven by an 11.2% improvement in average daily rate.
In the second quarter of 2013, Management and Rental segment adjusted EBITDA was $2.0 million, compared to $2.6 millionin the prior year period. The decline in this segment’s adjusted EBITDA resulted from an increase in professional fees incurred during the quarter largely related to our anticipated purchase of 75.5% of the European shared ownership management business of CLC World Resorts and Hotels.
CAPITAL RESOURCES AND LIQUIDITY
As of June 30, 2013, ILG had $109.0 million of cash and cash equivalents, including $92.4 million of U.S. dollar equivalent or denominated cash deposits held by foreign subsidiaries which are subject to changes in foreign exchange rates. Of this amount, $60.5 million is held in foreign jurisdictions, principally the U.K.
Debt outstanding as of June 30, 2013 was $215 million. As of this date, ILG had $285 million available on its revolving credit facility, which may be increased by an additional $200 million, subject to specified conditions.
For the first half of 2013, ILG’s capital expenditures totaled $6.6 million, or 2.5% of revenue, net cash provided by operating activities was $61.3 million and free cash flow (defined below) was $54.7 million, an increase of 27.5% from the same period of 2012. This improvement in free cash flow was driven by lower interest paid as well as higher cash receipts in 2013 compared to 2012, partly offset by higher income taxes paid in 2013.
The Board of Directors of Interval Leisure Group declared a quarterly dividend payment of $0.11 per share to shareholders of record on June 4, 2013. On June 18, 2013, a cash dividend of $6.3 million was paid. Additionally, the board of directors has declared a third quarter dividend of $0.11 per share which is scheduled to be paid on September 18, 2013 to shareholders of record on September 4, 2013.
PRESENTATION OF FINANCIAL INFORMATION
ILG management believes that the presentation of non-generally accepted accounting principles (non-GAAP) financial measures, including, among others, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP basic and diluted EPS and free cash flow, serves to enhance the understanding of ILG’s performance. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to and not as substitutes for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). In addition, adjusted EBITDA (with certain additional add-backs) is used to calculate compliance with certain financial covenants in ILG’s credit agreement. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures improve the transparency of our disclosures, provide meaningful presentations of our results from our business operations excluding the impact of certain items not related to our core business operations and improve the period to period comparability of results from business operations. These measures may also be useful in comparing our results to those of other companies; however, our calculations may differ from the calculations of these measures used by other companies. More information about the non-GAAP financial measures, including reconciliations of GAAP results to the non-GAAP measures, is available in the financial tables that accompany this press release.
