Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

NEW YORK, Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Weight Watchers International, Inc. (NYSE: WTW) today announced its results for the third quarter of fiscal 2013.  Third quarter 2013 results include:

  • Revenues of $393.9 million, down 8.5% on a constant currency basis versus the prior year period
  • Operating income margin improved 100bps to 31.6%, benefiting from cost savings initiatives
  • Subsequent to quarter end, announced the appointment of two members to the executive team: Lesya Lysyj as President, North America and Dan Crowe as Chief Technology Officer

"While progress on cost cutting has allowed us to exceed our Q3 profit expectations, we expect Q4 revenues to be down low double digits given our continuing negative recruitment trends," commented Jim Chambers, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer.

Chambers added, "While we are working aggressively on both near-term commercial activities and longer-term strategic initiatives, 2014 will be a very challenging year.  To maintain financial flexibility and fund the Company's transformation, the Board has elected to suspend the dividend."

Third quarter 2013 revenues decreased 8.5% on a constant currency basis versus the prior year period.  Q3 2013 total paid weeks were down 6.6% as compared to the prior year period.  Online paid weeks declined 2.6%, and meeting paid weeks declined 11.2%, versus the prior year period.

Third quarter 2013 operating income decreased 5.8% on a constant currency basis versus the prior year period. This decrease was primarily driven by lower revenues in the meetings business, which was only partially offset by lower marketing expense resulting largely from the reduction of digital advertising spend with a focus on inefficiencies, lack of a men's campaign in the United States as well as less TV advertising globally.

Third quarter 2013 International meeting revenues were down 11.1% on a constant currency basis versus the prior year period, primarily driven by lower revenues in the United Kingdom (UK).

  • UK:  Third quarter 2013 UK meeting revenues decreased 17.8% on a constant currency basis versus the prior year period.  Results were negatively impacted by a difficult competitive climate. Third quarter 2013 paid weeks declined 21.1% versus the prior year period.
  • CE:  Third quarter 2013 Continental Europe (CE) meeting revenues decreased 5.4% on a constant currency basis versus the prior year period, with a decline in paid weeks of 1.7% versus the prior year period.  The declines in revenues and volumes in the quarter were driven by cycling against the successful launch of the new program and new advertising campaigns in the prior year period.

Third quarter 2013 Internet revenues grew 0.9% on a constant currency basis versus the prior year period.  This growth in Internet revenues was a deceleration from the period-over-period increase of 6.6% experienced in Q2 2013.  This deceleration was driven primarily by declining sign-ups in the US business as consumer trial in the category continued to be influenced by activity monitors and free apps. Online paid weeks declined 2.6%, and end of period active Online subscribers declined 5.3%, versus Q3 2012.

First nine months fiscal 2013 net income was $173.9 million versus $199.4 million in the prior year period.  EPS for the first nine months of fiscal 2013 was $3.09 versus $3.19 in the prior year period.

Net income and EPS for the first nine months of fiscal 2013 were impacted by a $21.7 million ($13.3 million after tax), or $0.24 per fully diluted share, early extinguishment of debt charge recorded in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 resulting from the write-off of fees associated with the Company's April 2013 debt refinancing.  Excluding this early extinguishment of debt charge (after tax), net income would have been $187.3 million and EPS would have been $3.32 in the first nine months of fiscal 2013.

EPS in the first nine months of fiscal 2013 continued to benefit from the completion of the Company's previously disclosed tender offer and related stock repurchase transaction that took place in March and April 2012, respectively.  Foreign currency did not have a significant impact on EPS in the first nine months of fiscal 2013.

First nine months 2013 revenues decreased 5.0% on a constant currency basis versus the prior year period.  This decrease resulted from lower revenues in the meetings business as it experienced weaker volumes globally, most notably in North America and the UK. This decline in meetings business revenues was partially offset by moderate revenue growth in the WeightWatchers.com business.  

First nine months 2013 total paid weeks were down 2.5% as compared to the prior year period.  Online paid weeks increased 4.1% versus the prior year period, while meeting paid weeks declined 9.9% versus the prior year period.

First nine months 2013 operating income decreased 1.6% on a constant currency basis versus the prior year period.  Lower marketing expense, primarily from the elimination of inefficient digital advertising and the lack of a men's campaign in the United States, in large part offset the impact of lower revenues in the meetings business. 

Full Year Fiscal 2013 Earnings Guidance

The Company has raised its full year 2013 earnings guidance to a range of between $3.85 and $3.95 per fully diluted share as compared to its previously provided range of between $3.55 and $3.70 per fully diluted share. This revised earnings guidance range excludes the one-time, second quarter charge of $0.24 per fully diluted share related to the early extinguishment of debt associated with the Company's April 2013 debt refinancing.

Quarterly Dividend

The Company also announced today that it has suspended its quarterly cash dividend. The Company currently intends to use the related annual cash savings of approximately $39.0 million, based on the number of shares outstanding as of the end of the third quarter 2013, to preserve financial flexibility while funding the Company's strategic growth initiatives and building cash for future debt repayments. Any future determination to declare and pay dividends will be made at the discretion of the Company's Board of Directors, after taking into account the Company's financial results, capital requirements and other factors it may deem relevant.

Third Quarter 2013 Conference Call

The Company has scheduled a conference call today at 5:00 p.m. ET.  During the conference call, Jim Chambers, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, and Nick Hotchkin, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, will discuss third quarter 2013 results and answer questions from the investment community.  Live audio of the conference call will be simultaneously webcast over the Internet on the Company's corporate website, www.weightwatchersinternational.com.  A replay of the webcast will be available on this site for approximately 90 days.

Statement regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The following provides information regarding non-GAAP financial measures used in this earnings release:

To supplement the Company's consolidated results presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP), the Company has disclosed non-GAAP financial measures of operating results that exclude or adjust certain items.  Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation (EBITDAS) is presented in the attachments to this release.  Net income and earnings per fully diluted share with respect to the first nine months of fiscal 2013 are discussed in this release both as reported (on a GAAP basis) and as adjusted (on a non-GAAP basis) to exclude the impact from the early extinguishment of debt charge associated with the Company's April 2013 debt refinancing.  In addition, the Company presents certain of its financial results on a constant currency basis in addition to GAAP results. Constant currency information compares results between periods as if exchange rates had remained constant period-over-period. In this release and any attachments, the Company calculates constant currency by calculating current-year results using prior-year foreign currency exchange rates.

Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information for its and investors' evaluation of the Company's business performance and are useful for period-over-period comparisons of the performance of the Company's business.  While management believes that these financial measures are useful in evaluating the Company's business, this information should be considered as supplemental in nature and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.  In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be the same as similarly entitled measures reported by other companies.  See "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" attached to this release and reconciliations, if any, included elsewhere in this release for a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.
