Royal Caribbean Reports Second Quarter Results and Updates Full Year Guidance

MIAMI, July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. (NYSE, OSE: RCL) today reported second quarter results, updated its 2013 outlook and commented on initiatives to enhance profitability.

KEY HIGHLIGHTS

  • Net Income for the quarter was $24.7 million, or $0.11 per share, compared to a net loss of ($3.7 million), or ($0.02) per share, in 2012.  Earnings during the quarter include an impact of $0.05 per share related to the Grandeur fire and a non-cash charge of $0.07 per share accounting correction related to the company's affinity credit card program.
  • For the full year 2013, the company's earnings outlook is essentially unchanged from the update that was provided in late May, which reflected the impact of the Grandeur of the Seas fire and the strengthening of the US dollar.  EPS is expected to be in the range of $2.20 to $2.30.  Constant-Currency Net Yields are expected to increase approximately 3% (excluding the affinity card adjustment).
  • The company's cost control efforts are showing encouraging results.  Excluding the Grandeur fire, Constant-Currency NCC excluding fuel increased 1.5% in the second quarter.  NCC excluding fuel are now expected to grow 1% to 2% for the year (compared to prior guidance of 2% to 3%).
  • The company's better than expected expenses in the second quarter and its reduced cost guidance are reflective of actions the company is taking as part of a broad profitability improvement program.  These initiatives are aimed at increasing revenues and reducing expenses with a goal of improving the company's returns on invested capital.  While it is still early in the operating plan process, the company's objective is to generate yield improvement and at least flat NCC excluding fuel in 2014. 

"It is rewarding to see things coming together.  While the operating environment has been frustrating, our bookings trajectory is looking good and I'm thrilled to see our cost initiatives beginning to pay off," said Richard D. Fain, chairman and chief executive officer. "Exploiting this positive momentum will help us take our returns and our profitability to the next level," Fain continued.

Second Quarter 2013 Results
Royal Caribbean today announced second quarter 2013 net income of $24.7 million, or $0.11 per share, versus a loss of ($3.7 million) or ($0.02) per share, in the second quarter of 2012.  Included in the 2013 figures is a $0.05 per share impact related to the Grandeur fire and a $0.07 non-cash charge to correct an underestimate of the reward liability for its affinity credit card.  Absent these two charges, earnings per share would have been $0.23 per share.

Net Yields on a Constant-Currency basis increased 2.8% for the quarter.  Ticket revenue for the second quarter came in as expected, while on-board revenue outperformed expectations.  Excluding the affinity card adjustment, Constant-Currency Net Yields in the quarter increased 3.9% versus the prior year.  

NCC excluding fuel were better than anticipated and increased 2.3% on a Constant-Currency basis (1.5% excluding the impact from Grandeur).  Costs were controlled across all areas of the business with hotel, vessel and administrative expense categories all performing more efficiently than expected.  

Bunker pricing net of hedging for the second quarter was $697 per metric ton and consumption was 6,400 metric tons lower than expected at 333,600 metric tons.  

Outlook

Full Year 2013
Constant-Currency yields are expected to increase 2% to 3% (approximately 3% excluding the affinity card adjustment).  The main shortfalls versus prior guidance are the affinity card adjustment, China sailings due to the conflict between China and Japan, and a modest reduction in expectations for the Caribbean.  Despite ongoing discounting in the region, the company's Caribbean forecast was only modestly impacted and demand remains solid.  Europe continues to demonstrate year-over-year improvement, with net ticket yields expected to increase in the mid-single digits for the year.  In aggregate, both pricing and booked load factors are higher for the second half of the year than at the same time last year. 

Onboard revenues have benefited from improved U.S. consumer spending and the new onboard revenue venues the company has added through its revitalization efforts.    

NCC excluding fuel are expected to be up 1% to 2% on a Constant-Currency basis.  The company continues to focus on cost savings initiatives and has lowered the midpoint of its expense guidance by 100 basis points for the year.

Fuel costs are expected to be relatively unchanged from the company's original guidance despite the recent increases in oil prices due to hedging and energy conservation measures.

Additionally, the US dollar has continued to strengthen against the basket of currencies in which the company trades.  The US dollar is 5% stronger than when the company first issued guidance in January, the effect of which is detailed in the table below.

Full year earnings per share are expected to be in the range of $2.20 to $2.30.

The following table bridges the company's April guidance to its current guidance:

$2.25

Third Quarter 2013
Constant-Currency Net Yields are expected to be up 1% to 2% in the third quarter of 2013 and NCC excluding fuel are expected to increase approximately 4% on a Constant-Currency basis driven mainly by marketing and culinary programs that were launched in the fourth quarter of 2012.  Based on current fuel pricing and currency exchange rates, the company expects that third quarter earnings will be in the range of $1.60 to $1.70 per share.  Included in this third quarter guidance is a $0.05 per share impact related to the Grandeur fire.  

Profitability Initiatives
While the company is still in the early stages of its profitability improvement initiatives, two programs of note relate to Pullmantur and to the company's international operations.  Firstly, over the last few years, Pullmantur has systematically increased its emphasis on Latin America which now generates over 50% of its revenues.  In recognition of this, Pullmantur will shortly be opening a head office in Latin America to place the operating management closer to its largest and fastest growing market and to help reduce overhead.  Secondly, the broader organization has grown its international footprint meaningfully over the past several years and has now achieved significant scale in both global deployment and sourcing.  As part of its profitability initiatives, the company is working on opportunities to improve its global sales, marketing and general and administrative cost structure to further leverage economies of scale.

"The profitability improvement measures are designed to result in long-term cost savings and further revenue improvements that will benefit 2014 and beyond," commented Jason T. Liberty, senior vice president and chief financial officer.  Liberty continued, "We will likely incur some one-time charges in 2013 related to these actions, but we are confident that the increase in efficiency will be well worth it."

In addition to its traditional financial metrics, beginning in the third quarter the company intends to follow the growing practice of reporting the non-GAAP metric "adjusted net income" in order to isolate unusual items such as the one-time restructuring charges noted above.  The company feels that this measure will add an additional level of clarity to the performance of the underlying business.         

FUEL EXPENSE & GUIDANCE SUMMARY

Fuel Expense
The company does not forecast fuel prices, and its fuel cost calculations are based on current at-the-pump prices, net of hedging impacts. Based on today's fuel prices the company has included $219 million and $923 million of fuel expense in its third quarter 2013 and full year 2013 guidance, respectively. 

Forecasted consumption is now 60% hedged via swaps for the remainder of 2013 and 55%, 39%, 20% and 5% hedged for 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017, respectively.  For the same five-year period, the average cost per metric ton of the hedge portfolio is approximately $576, $620, $647, $623 and $640, respectively.

Selected Operational and Financial Metrics

Available Passenger Cruise Days ("APCD")
APCD is our measurement of capacity and represents double occupancy per cabin multiplied by the number of cruise days for the period.  We use this measure to perform capacity and rate analysis to identify the main non-capacity drivers that cause our cruise revenues and expenses to vary. 

Constant-Currency
We believe Net Yields and Net Cruise Costs are our most relevant non-GAAP financial measures.  However, a significant portion of our revenue and expenses are denominated in currencies other than the United States dollar. Because our reporting currency is the United States dollar, the value of these revenues and expenses in US dollars will be affected by changes in currency exchange rates.  Although such changes in local currency prices is just one of many elements impacting our revenues and expenses, it can be an important element.  For this reason, we also monitor Net Yields and Net Cruise Costs on a "Constant-Currency" basis – i.e. as if the current period's currency exchange rates had remained constant with the comparable prior period's rates.  We calculate "Constant-Currency" by applying the average prior year period exchange rates for each of the corresponding months of the reported and/or forecasted period, so as to calculate what the results would have been had exchange rates been the same throughout both periods.  We do not make predictions about future exchange rates and use current exchange rates for calculations of future periods.  It should be emphasized that the use of Constant-Currency is primarily used by us for comparing short-term changes and/or projections. 

Over the longer term, changes in guest sourcing and shifting the amount of purchases between currencies significantly change the impact of the purely currency-based fluctuations. 

Gross Cruise Costs
Gross Cruise Costs represent the sum of total cruise operating expenses plus marketing, selling and administrative expenses.

Gross Yields
Gross Yields represent total revenues per APCD.

Net Cruise Costs and Net Cruise Costs Excluding Fuel
Net Cruise Costs and Net Cruise Costs Excluding Fuel represent Gross Cruise Costs excluding commissions, transportation and other expenses and onboard and other expenses and, in the case of Net Cruise Costs Excluding Fuel, fuel.  In measuring our ability to control costs in a manner that positively impacts net income, we believe changes in Net Cruise Costs and Net Cruise Costs Excluding Fuel to be the most relevant indicators of our performance.  A reconciliation of historical Gross Cruise Costs to Net Cruise Costs and Net Cruise Costs Excluding Fuel is provided below under Results of Operations.  We have not provided a quantitative reconciliation of projected Gross Cruise Costs to projected Net Cruise Costs and projected Net Cruise Costs Excluding Fuel due to the significant uncertainty in projecting the costs deducted to arrive at these measures.  Accordingly, we do not believe that reconciling information for such projected figures would be meaningful.

Net Debt-to-Capital
Net Debt-to-Capital is a ratio which represents total long-term debt, including the current portion of long-term debt, less cash and cash equivalents ("Net Debt") divided by the sum of Net Debt and total shareholders' equity.  We believe Net Debt and Net Debt-to-Capital, along with total long-term debt and shareholders' equity are useful measures of our capital structure. 

Net Revenues
Net Revenues represent total revenues less commissions, transportation and other expenses and onboard and other expenses.

Net Yields
Net Yields represent Net Revenues per APCD.  We utilize Net Revenues and Net Yields to manage our business on a day-to-day basis as we believe that it is the most relevant measure of our pricing performance because it reflects the cruise revenues earned by us net of our most significant variable costs, which are commissions, transportation and other expenses and onboard and other expenses.  We have not provided a quantitative reconciliation of projected Gross Yields to projected Net Yields due to the significant uncertainty in projecting the costs deducted to arrive at this measure.  Accordingly, we do not believe that reconciling information for such projected figures would be meaningful.

Occupancy
Occupancy, in accordance with cruise vacation industry practice, is calculated by dividing Passenger Cruise Days by APCD.  A percentage in excess of 100% indicates that three or more passengers occupied some cabins.

Passenger Cruise Days
Passenger Cruise Days represent the number of passengers carried for the period multiplied by the number of days of their respective cruises.
