We also launched Abound by Marriott Vacations, added over 20,000 new owners in our Vacation Ownership business and grew active Interval International members by 21%,” said John Geller, president & chief executive officer. “Looking forward, we expect occupancies in North America and Europe to remain strong this year and for Asia-Pacific to continue to improve. We also expect to grow contract sales this year by 5% to 9% compared to the prior year and for Adjusted Free Cash Flow to be between $600 million and $670 million, illustrating the continued demand for leisure travel and the strength of our business model.”
Fourth Quarter 2022 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 acceleration of revenue from the sale of Marriott-branded vacation ownership interests. In addition, the Company aligned its reserve methodology for these brands, resulting in an adjustment to its notes receivable reserve in the third quarter. Together, these changes are herein referred to as the “Alignment.” As a result of the Alignment, the Company reported an additional $5 million of Net income attributable to common shareholders and an additional $7 million of Adjusted EBITDA during the fourth quarter. The tables and financial schedules below illustrate the impact of the Alignment on the Company’s reported results.
Exchange & Third-Party Management
Revenues excluding cost reimbursements decreased 7% in the fourth quarter of 2022 compared to the prior year and increased 4% excluding the results of VRI Americas, which was sold in April of 2022. Interval International active members increased 21% to 1.6 million and Average revenue per member decreased 17% compared to the prior year as the new accounts at Interval International that were added at the beginning of the year continued to ramp up.
Segment financial results attributable to common shareholders were $24 million in the fourth quarter of 2022, Segment margin was 41% and Segment Adjusted EBITDA was $31 million. Excluding the VRI Americas business, Segment Adjusted EBITDA increased 11% compared to the prior year and Segment Adjusted EBITDA margin increased to 55%.
Corporate and Other
General and administrative costs were largely unchanged in the fourth quarter of 2022 compared to the prior year.
Balance Sheet and Liquidity
The Company ended the quarter with approximately $1.3 billion in liquidity, including $524 million of cash and cash equivalents, $72 million of gross notes receivable that were eligible for securitization, and $749 million of available capacity under its revolving corporate credit facility.
In December 2022, the Company issued $575 million of 3.25% convertible notes due 2027 with an initial conversion price of $189.65. The Company used the proceeds from the offering to redeem $250 million of 6.125% secured notes due 2025 (which was paid in January), repurchase $55 million of its own shares, repay the outstanding balance on its revolving credit facility (which was used to redeem $230 million of convertible notes that matured in September 2022) and pay transaction expenses and other fees. In addition, to reduce the potential economic dilution to the Company’s earnings per share upon conversion of the notes, the Company used a portion of the proceeds to enter into privately negotiated bond hedge and warrant transactions, with such warrant transactions at an initial strike price of $286.26 per share, which represented a premium of 100% over the last reported sale price of the Company’s common stock on December 5, 2022.
At the end of the fourth quarter of 2022, pro-forma for the repayment of the 2025 secured senior notes, the Company had $2.8 billion of corporate debt and $1.9 billion of non-recourse debt related to its securitized notes receivable.
The Company completed its second timeshare receivable securitization of 2022 in the fourth quarter, issuing $280 million of notes backed by a pool of $286 million of vacation ownership notes receivable from all of the Company’s timeshare brands. The overall weighted average interest rate of the notes was 6.58%, without giving effect to the Company’s retention of the Class D Notes, and the transaction had a gross advance rate of 98%.
