Marriott Vacations Worldwide (“MVW”) Reports Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results
ORLANDO, Fla. – October 31, 2022 – Marriott Vacations Worldwide Corporation (NYSE: VAC) (the “Company”) reported third quarter 2022 financial results.
In the third quarter of 2022, in connection with the unification of the Company’s Marriott-, Westin-, and Sheraton-branded vacation ownership products under the Abound by Marriott Vacations program, the Company aligned its contract terms for the sale of vacation ownership products, resulting in the prospective acceleration of revenue from the sale of Marriott-branded vacation ownership interests. In addition, the Company aligned its reserve methodology on vacation ownership notes receivable for these brands, resulting in a decrease in the reserve for the acquired notes offset by an increase in the reserve for the originated notes. Together, these changes are hereinafter referred to as the “Alignment.” As a result of the Alignment, the Company reported an additional $33 million of Net income attributable to common shareholders and an additional $44 million of Adjusted EBITDA during the quarter. The tables and financial schedules below illustrate the impact of the Alignment on the Company’s reported results.
Third Quarter 2022 Highlights:
- Consolidated Vacation Ownership contract sales were $483 million, a 27% increase compared to the third quarter of 2021, and VPG increased 1% to $4,353.
- Net income attributable to common shareholders was $109 million, or $2.53 fully diluted earnings per share; excluding the impact of the Alignment, net income attributable to common shareholders was $76 million, or $1.79 fully diluted earnings per share.
- Adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders was $131 million, or $3.02 adjusted fully diluted earnings per share; excluding the impact of the Alignment, adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders was $98 million, or $2.28 adjusted fully diluted earnings per share.
- Adjusted EBITDA was $284 million; excluding the impact of the Alignment, Adjusted EBITDA was $240 million, an increase of 17% compared to the prior year.
- The Company repurchased nearly 1.7 million shares of its common stock for $216 million during the quarter at an average price per share of $129.
“Despite the challenging macroeconomic backdrop, we had a very strong third quarter, growing contract sales by 27% compared to the prior year driven by strong tour growth,” said Stephen P. Weisz, chief executive officer. “With continued growth in our business, we’ve returned more than $600 million in cash to shareholders this year through a combination of share repurchases and dividends.”
