Overview

For the three months ended December 31, 2016, EPS was $0.38 compared to $0.49 for the three months ended December 31, 2015. Net income was $38 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016, compared to $49 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015, and Adjusted EBITDA was $101 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016, compared to $103 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015.

For the 12 months ended December 31, 2016, EPS was $1.70 compared to $1.76 for the 12 months ended December 31, 2015. Net income was $168 million for the 12 months ended December 31, 2016, compared to $174 million for the 12 months ended December 31, 2015, and Adjusted EBITDA was $402 million for the 12 months ended December 31, 2016, compared to $373 million for the 12 months ended December 31, 2015.

Mark Wang, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hilton Grand Vacations, said, “We are pleased to begin this new phase as an independent, publicly traded company. In the past year we’ve welcomed more than 19,000 net new owners to the HGV family, representing net owner growth of nearly 8 percent. Contract sales grew 10 percent last year, again demonstrating the power of HGV’s sales and marketing platforms and the benefits of our strong alliance with Hilton. This year’s results continued to demonstrate we are a leader in capital efficiency in the timeshare industry, as almost three-quarters of our contract sales came from inventory developed by third parties in either fee-for-service or just-in-time arrangements. As we have successfully completed our transition to an independent, public company, we are well positioned to continue delivering on our value proposition to all stakeholders while finding innovative ways to deploy capital to extend our growth profile.”

Spin-Off Transactions and Other Events

On January 3, 2017, Hilton Worldwide Holdings, Inc. (“Hilton”) executed a tax-free spin-off of Hilton Grand Vacations. The spin-off was completed by way of a pro-rata distribution of HGV common stock to Hilton stockholders of record as of 5 p.m. EST on December 15, 2016, the spin-off record date. Each Hilton stockholder received one share of HGV common stock for every 10 shares of Hilton common stock held by such stockholder on the record date. On January 3, 2017, Hilton Grand Vacations became a separate, publicly traded company, and Hilton did not retain any ownership interest in HGV. HGV filed a Registration Statement on Form 10 describing the transaction with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") and was declared effective on December 2, 2016 (as amended through the time of such effectiveness, the "Registration Statement on Form 10"). In connection with the completion of the spin-off, HGV entered into agreements with Hilton and other third parties, including a license agreement to use the HGV brand that did not exist historically.

In October 2016, Hilton announced HNA Group will acquire an approximate 25 percent interest in Hilton from affiliates of the Blackstone Group L.P., establishing an investment in Hilton and Hilton’s planned spin-offs, including Hilton Grand Vacations. As Hilton discussed in its earnings report on February 15, 2017, the transaction is expected to close during the first quarter of 2017.

DEFINITIONS

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

EBITDA, presented herein, is a financial measure that is not recognized under U.S. GAAP that reflects net income, before interest expense, a provision for income taxes and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA, presented herein, is calculated as EBITDA, as previously defined, further adjusted to exclude certain items, including, but not limited to, gains, losses and expenses in connection with: (i) asset dispositions; (ii) foreign currency transactions; (iii) debt restructurings/retirements; (iv) non-cash impairment losses; (v) reorganization costs, including severance and relocation costs; (vi) share-based and certain other compensation expenses; (vii) costs related to the spin-off; and (viii) other items.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not recognized terms under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss) or other measures of financial performance or liquidity derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, HGV’s definitions of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

The Company believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA provide useful information to investors about HGV and its financial condition and results of operations for the following reasons: (i) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are among the measures used by HGV’s management team to evaluate its operating performance and make day-to-day operating decisions; and (ii) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties as a common performance measure to compare results or estimate valuations across companies in the timeshare industry.

  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered either in isolation or as a substitute for net income (loss), cash flow or other methods of analyzing HGV’s results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Some of these limitations are:
  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, HGV’s working capital needs;
  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect HGV’s interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on its indebtedness;
  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect HGV’s tax expense or the cash requirements to pay the Company’s taxes;
  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect historical cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the effect on earnings or changes resulting from matters that the Company considers not to be indicative of its future operations;
                i.   although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements; and
ii. other companies in the timeshare industry may calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.

Because of these limitations, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as discretionary cash available to HGV to reinvest in the growth of its business or as measures of cash that will be available to HGV to meet its obligations.

Real Estate Metrics

Capital efficiency ratio represents the ratio of cost of VOI sales to VOI inventory spend, including fee-for-service upgrades. HGV considers this to be an important operating measure because capital efficiency allows HGV to reduce inventory investment requirements while continuing to generate growth in revenues and cash flows.

Contract sales represents the total amount of VOI products under purchase agreements signed during the period where HGV has received a down payment of at least 10 percent of the contract price. Contract sales is not a recognized term under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to Sales of VOIs, net or any other comparable operating measure derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Contract sales differ from revenues from the Sales of VOIs, net that HGV reports in its consolidated statements of operations due to the requirements for revenue recognition as described in Note 2: Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies in the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements, as well as adjustments for incentives and other administrative fee revenues. HGV considers contract sales to be an important operating measure because it reflects the pace of sales in HGV’s business.

Developed Inventory refers to VOI inventory source from projects the Company develops.

Fee-for-Service Inventory refers to VOI inventory HGV sells and manages on behalf of third-party developers.

Just-in-Time Inventory refers to VOI inventory primarily sourced in transactions that are designed to closely correlate the timing of the acquisition with HGV’s sale of that inventory to purchasers.

Net Owner Growth represents the year-over-year change in membership.

Real estate margin represents sales revenue less the cost of VOI sales and sales and marketing costs, net of marketing revenue. Real estate margin percentage is calculated by dividing real estate margin by sales revenue. HGV considers this to be an important operating measure because it measures the efficiency of the Company’s sales and marketing spending and management of inventory costs.

Sales revenue represents sale of VOIs, net and commissions and brand fees earned from the sale of fee-for-service intervals.

Tour flow represents the number of sales presentations given at HGV’s sales centers during the period.

Volume per guest ("VPG") represents the sales attributable to tours at HGV’s sales locations and is calculated by dividing Contract sales, excluding telesales, by tour flow. The Company considers VPG to be an important operating measure because it measures the effectiveness of HGV’s sales process, combining the average transaction price with closing rate.

Return on invested capital ("ROIC") represents Adjusted EBITDA less non-recourse debt interest expense and depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted EBIT"), divided by average invested capital. Invested capital includes debt, deferred revenues, deferred income tax liabilities and total equity (deficit).

Free cash flow represents cash from operating activities adjusted for share based compensation, less non-inventory capital spending.

Resort and Club Management and Rental Metrics

Transient rate represents the total rental room revenue for transient guests divided by total number of transient room nights sold in a given period and excludes room rentals associated with marketing programs, owner usage and the redemption of Club Bonus Points.
