Wyndham Hotels & Resorts (NYSE: WH) today announced results for the three months ended March 31, 2021. Highlights include:
  • Diluted earnings per share was $0.26, and adjusted diluted earnings per share was $0.36.
  • Net income was $24 million and adjusted net income was $33 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $97 million.
  • Generated $64 million of net cash provided by operating activities and $59 million of free cash flow.
  • Global RevPAR declined 11% compared to first quarter 2020 and 31% compared to first quarter 2019 in constant currency.
  • Paid quarterly cash dividend of $0.16 per share.
  • Redeemed all $500 million aggregate principal amount of its outstanding 5.375% Senior Notes due 2026 on April 15, 2021.
  • Company updates its previous 2021 projections.
  “Wyndham’s select-service franchise business model delivered a strong start to 2021 as leisure customers hit the road at a pace not experienced since the pandemic started and demand from our everyday business travelers continued to accelerate,” said Geoffrey A. Ballotti, president and chief executive officer.  “We were very pleased to see our development pipelines grow sequentially, both domestically and internationally, and our room openings and deletions improve year-over-year.  We were also encouraged to see conversion room openings increase year-over-year, representing over 70% of total openings this quarter.”

Revenues declined from $410 million in the first quarter of 2020 to $303 million in the first quarter of 2021. The decline includes lower pass-through cost-reimbursement revenues of $55 million in the Company’s hotel management business, which have no impact on adjusted EBITDA.  Excluding cost-reimbursement revenues, revenues declined $52 million primarily reflecting an 11% decline in constant-currency global RevPAR.

The Company generated net income of $24 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, compared to $22 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2020.  The increase of $2 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, was a result of the Company’s COVID-19 cost mitigation plan implemented in April 2020, lower volume-related expenses and the absence of restructuring and transaction-related expenses, which were partially offset by the global RevPAR decline.
