Royal Caribbean Details Interest Expense Accounting Revision, Reports Second Quarter Results, Updates 2011 Guidance and Reinstates Dividend

 
[27-July-2011]
 

MIAMI, July 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. (NYSE, OSE: RCL) today made a series of financial announcements, the most salient points of which are:

(1) Management identified an error in the previous accounting treatment of interest expense relating to its amortization of certain financing fees and has revised its past financial statements to reflect the correct accounting (the "Interest Expense Revision").

(2) Second quarter EPS was 47 cents before the Interest Expense Revision. After adjusting for the revision, the company reported earnings of 43 cents per share which is the midpoint of previous guidance range of 40 cents to 45 cents.

(3) Excluding the Interest Expense Revision, full year 2011 EPS guidance is now expected to be $3.05 to $3.15, reflecting a 10 cent reduction to prior guidance on continuing pricing softness for Eastern Mediterranean sailings, partially offset by strong cost savings. The Interest Expense Revision is forecasted to reduce 2011 EPS by 20 cents resulting in full year 2011 EPS guidance of $2.85 to $2.95.

(4) The Board of Directors reinstated the quarterly dividend at a rate of 10 cents per share.

Key Highlights

  • Interest Expense Accounting Revision:  The financial statements included in this release have been revised (see attached table).  This revision is not a restatement and prior period financial statements may still be relied upon.  The company also noted that cash flows, operating income, Net Yields and Net Cruise Costs were not impacted by the revision.  
  • Results For the Second Quarter 2011:
    • Net income was $93.5 million, or $0.43 per share, versus $53.7 million, or $0.25 per share, in 2010;
    • Net Yields increased 3.8% (0.8% on a Constant-Currency basis).  Excluding Mediterranean sailings, Net Yields increased 9.8% (7.3% on a Constant-Currency basis);
    • Net Cruise Costs per APCD ("NCC") excluding fuel increased by 2.3% (decreased 0.1% on a Constant-Currency basis).
  • Full Year Guidance:
    • While most of the company's product groups are performing at or above prior expectations, ongoing pressures from events in the Eastern Mediterranean have reduced Constant-Currency Net Yield expectations for the year by 150 basis points since April;
    • Full year 2011 Net Yields are expected to increase approximately 5% (2% to 3% on a Constant-Currency basis).  Excluding Mediterranean sailings, yields are expected to increase approximately 8% (approximately 6% on a Constant-Currency basis);
    • The company has been able to further reduce its cost outlook for the year and has reduced its Constant-Currency NCC excluding fuel by 100 basis points;
    • Full year 2011 EPS is expected to be within a range of $2.85 to $2.95.  Excluding the Interest Expense Revision, EPS expectations would have been $3.05 to $3.15 per share.  
  • Quarterly Dividend Reinstatement:  The Company's Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.10 per share payable on August 30, 2011 to shareholders of record at the close of business on August 12, 2011.
  • Financing:  During July, the company amended and extended its primary Revolving Credit facility, which now has a capacity of $875 million and is due in 2016.  Combined with its $525 million Revolver, the company now has $1.4 billion of Revolving Credit facilities.  The company also drew a 12-year, $632 million unsecured financing for the delivery of the Celebrity Silhouette.

"Since our last guidance, the turmoil in the Eastern Mediterranean has caused pricing to deteriorate even further for this region. Fortunately, our other markets are performing exceptionally well and we have been able to take our cost reductions to the next level. As a result, profitability is still growing nicely year-over-year, but these disruptions have undermined our expectations for even better performance this year," said Richard D. Fain, chairman and chief executive officer. Fain continued, "Our long-term outlook remains highly positive and, with a strengthening balance sheet and solid liquidity, we are pleased to reinstate our dividend. It is our intention to continue paying quarterly dividends at this level or higher as our performance improves and we work toward our goal of returning to Investment Grade."

Second Quarter 2011 Results

Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. today announced net income of $93.5 million, or $0.43 per share, versus $53.7 million, or $0.25 per share, in 2010.

Revenues improved to $1.8 billion in the second quarter of 2011 compared to $1.6 billion in the second quarter of 2010 as a result of capacity increases and yield improvements. Net Yields for the second quarter of 2011 increased 3.8% (0.8% on a Constant-Currency basis). Excluding Mediterranean sailings, Net Yields in the second quarter improved 9.8% (7.3% on a Constant-Currency basis).

Costs in the second quarter of 2011 were virtually flat on a constant-currency basis and most expense categories performed better than expected. NCC excluding fuel increased 2.3% (decreased 0.1% on a Constant-Currency basis).

At-the-pump fuel pricing declines have lagged those of WTI during the quarter resulting in second quarter fuel pricing very similar to earlier calculations at $599 per metric ton. During the quarter and prior to the market declines in WTI pricing, the company monetized a portion of its WTI option portfolio thereby realizing a significant portion of the first quarter's marked-to-market gains. As a result of these actions, the net marked-to-market valuation of fuel options was immaterial in the second quarter.

2011 Outlook

The company provided the following updates to its forward guidance:

Revenue:

For the full year, the company expects Net Yields to improve approximately 5% on an as-reported basis and 2% to 3% on a Constant-Currency basis. For the third quarter, the company expects Net Yields to improve approximately 5% on an as-reported basis and 1% to 2% on a Constant-Currency basis. Excluding Mediterranean sailings, third quarter Net Yields are expected to increase approximately 11% (approximately 9% on a Constant-Currency basis).

Two factors that influenced the company's outlook in April are again affecting the outlook on yields, geopolitical events and fluctuations in the U.S. Dollar:

  • Geopolitical:  The ongoing conflicts in the Eastern Mediterranean and its spillover effects continues to create hesitation around travel to the region.  Some of this was already evident at the time of the company's last guidance.  However, during the second quarter, the civil unrest in the Eastern Mediterranean expanded to other areas including Syria and Greece and the level of concern amongst travelers grew as tensions in the region dominated the headlines.  This has resulted in a full year yield reduction of approximately 150 basis points versus April guidance.  Net Yields for the Mediterranean are now expected to be down approximately 4% for the year, which is in stark contrast with the rest of the company's portfolio.  The impact related to the events in Japan was reasonably clear by the time of the last guidance.  The impact on bookings was immediate, but! the situation has now stabilized.  The guidance for 2011 has not changed materially from previous guidance and the outlook going forward is very positive.

  • Strengthening of the U.S. Dollar:  In a reversal of the trends observed in April, the company's revenues have been negatively influenced by the strengthening of the U.S. Dollar relative to other currencies.  Assuming current currency exchange rates, the company expects Net Yields for the full year on an as-reported basis to decline approximately 50 basis points from its previous guidance as a result of currency.

The company noted that with the exception of the Eastern Mediterranean, it continues to observe strong demand for its products, especially the Caribbean, Alaska and Northern Europe. The strength of this demand (both rate and volume) reinforces that Eastern Mediterranean pricing softness this summer appears to be geopolitically related and that the economic demand for its products is strong. Further supporting this premise, excluding the Mediterranean, Net Yields for the year are expected to be up approximately 8% (approximately 6% on a Constant-Currency basis).

Net Cruise Costs (Excluding Fuel):

For the full year, the company expects NCC excluding fuel to increase approximately 3% on an as-reported basis and 1% - 2% on a Constant-Currency basis. For the third quarter, the company expects NCC excluding fuel to increase 4% to 5% on an as-reported basis and approximately 2% on a Constant-Currency basis.

The company has remained focused on tight cost controls and has reduced operating costs 100 basis points more than expected through a number of initiatives. In addition the strengthening U.S. Dollar has improved NCC excluding fuel a further 50 basis points since April.

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 $202 million and $763 million of fuel expense in its third quarter 2011 and full year 2011 guidance, respectively. These figures also take account further energy savings initiatives which continue to reduce the company's already low level of energy consumption.

Forecasted consumption is now 55% hedged for the remainder of 2011 at a WTI barrel equivalent rate of approximately $67 bbl, 55% hedged in 2012 at an equivalent rate of $72 bbl, 47% hedged in 2013 at an equivalent rate of $78 bbl, 30% hedged in 2014 at an equivalent rate of $87 bbl and 20% hedged in 2015 at an equivalent rate of $88 bbl. Additionally, the company also utilizes fuel options to further protect against escalating fuel prices. WTI fuel options at strike prices ranging from $90 bbl to $100 bbl cover an additional 8% and 11% of estimated consumption in 2012 and 2013, respectively.

The company provided the following fuel statistics for the third quarter and full year 2011:

                FUEL STATISTICS            Third Quarter 2011  Full Year 2011               Fuel Consumption                 335,000          1,319,000                 Fuel Expenses                $202 Million      $763 Million       Percent Hedged (fwd consumption)           53%               55%     Impact of 10% change in fuel prices *    $10 million       $20 million       *excludes marked-to-market impact of fuel options.

Liquidity and Financing Arrangements

As of June 30, 2011, and taking into account the new revolver, liquidity was $1.3 billion, including cash and the undrawn portion of the company's unsecured revolving credit facilities. Additionally, the company has committed unsecured financing on its remaining newbuilds.

The company has renewed its primary revolving credit facility that was due to expire in June of 2012. The facility has been extended to 5 years and now matures in July 2016. It can be drawn up to $875 million. This facility combined with the company's $525 million facility due in November 2014, provides the company with access to $1.4 billion in unsecured revolving credit facilities. The company intends to maintain staggered maturity profiles on these two facilities going forward to further reduce refinancing risks.

Capital Expenditures and Capacity Guidance

The company took delivery of the Celebrity Silhouette on July 18th. Celebrity Silhouette is the fourth in a series of five of the highly acclaimed Celebrity Solstice-class vessels and will initially split her time between Caribbean and European itineraries.

Based on current ship orders, projected capital expenditures for 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 are $1.1 billion, $1.2 billion, $500 million and $1.1 billion, respectively. These estimates include the recently announced Project Sunshine, energy savings initiatives and additional refurbishment investments.

Capacity increases for the same four years are 7.6%, 1.9%, 2.5% and 0.7%, respectively.

Conference Call Scheduled

The company has scheduled a conference call at 10 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time tomorrow to discuss its earnings. This call can be heard, either live or on a delayed basis, on the company's investor relations web site at http://www.rclinvestor.com.

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 can 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 as if the current periods' currency exchange rates had remained constant with the comparable prior periods' rates, or on a "Constant-Currency" basis. We calculate "Constant-Currency" by applying the average 2010 monthly exchange rates for each month of the period during 2010 to the results during the corresponding months in 2011, so! as to calculate what the results would have been had exchange rates been the same throughout both periods. It should be emphasized that the use of Constant-Currency is primarily used 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 (each of which is described above under the Description of Certain Line Items heading). 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 recon! ciling 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.
