Royal Caribbean Reports 2011 Results and Provides Initial 2012 Outlook
MIAMI, February 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. (NYSE, OSE: RCL) today reported fourth quarter and full year 2011 results and provided an initial outlook for 2012.
"First and foremost, our thoughts are with the guests, crew members and families who have been affected by the tragedy in Italy," said Richard D. Fain, chairman and chief executive officer. "Like so many who have spent their working lives in this industry, a tragedy like this just breaks our hearts." Fain continued, "All of us in the industry, who are so devoted to providing safe and exceptional vacations to millions of people around the world, are devastated and humbled when something like this happens. Ironically, this tragedy is so noteworthy partially because it is so rare. Cruising has an extraordinary record of safe operation but this tragic incident is a reminder that there is no such thing as perfect safety, only perfect dedication to safety. And I can assure you that we strive toward this perfect dedication to safety each and every day. Stunned by the tragedy, we and the rest of the industry are dete! rmined to learn whatever lessons we can and rededicate ourselves to continue providing the best and safest vacations for our guests."
Against this background, the company reported on its results for 2011 and provided its preliminary outlook for 2012.
FOURTH QUARTER AND FULL YEAR 2011 RESULTS
The year ended on a strong note with good bookings and cost control more than compensating for the increased cost of fuel and foreign exchange impacts.
"The year ended on a strong note which more than offset the rise in oil prices and the strengthening U.S. dollar," said Brian Rice, chief financial officer. Rice continued, "For the year as a whole, adjusted for fuel price increases and geopolitical events, our earnings would have meaningfully exceeded the midpoint of our January 2011 guidance."
Fourth Quarter 2011 Results
Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. today announced fourth quarter 2011 net income of $36.6 million, or $0.17 per share, versus $31.9 million, or $0.15 per share, in 2010. Revenues improved to $1.8 billion in the fourth quarter of 2011 compared to $1.6 billion in the fourth quarter of 2010 as a result of capacity increases and yield improvements. Net Yields increased 3.5% on a Constant-Currency basis (+3.2% As-Reported.) NCC excluding fuel increased 3.7% on a Constant-Currency basis (+3.6% As-Reported.) Bunker pricing for the fourth quarter was $609 per metric ton and consumption was 342,000 metric tons. Absent changes in currency exchange rates and fuel pricing, all operational metrics for the fourth quarter were in-line with or better then the company's previous guidance! .
Full Year 2011 Results
Also included in today's announcement was full year 2011 net income of $607.4 million, or $2.77 per share, versus $515.7 million, or $2.37 per share, in 2010. Revenues improved to $7.5 billion for the full year of 2011 compared to $6.8 billion for the full year of 2010 as a result of capacity increases and yield improvements. Net Yields increased 2.4% on a Constant-Currency basis (+4.1% As-Reported.) NCC excluding fuel increased 1.3% on a Constant-Currency basis (+2.3% As-Reported.) Bunker pricing for the full year was $582 per metric ton and consumption was 1,314,000 metric tons. Versus the full year guidance the company provided in January 2011, we estimate that geopolitical events and fuel pricing negatively impacted earnings by appr! oximately $0.65 and $0.20 per share, respectively.
LOOKING AHEAD TO THE YEAR 2012
The company provided the following update on the demand environment for 2012. Because the tragedy in Italy is having such a significant near term effect on bookings and because that impact on the company's earnings is so uncertain, the company first described the situation prior to the event and then discussed the possible consequences.
Outlook Pre-Costa Concordia
Booking patterns at the end of 2011 were strong and WAVE season was off to an excellent start. During the two weeks prior to the tragedy, bookings averaged 5% more than the same period last year and at higher prices. Booked load factors and pricing were ahead of the same time last year in all four quarters.
Based on the bookings in hand at that time and the pattern of forward bookings through the period, the company anticipated Constant-Currency yield improvement in the mid single digits for the year. This figure was influenced by two unique factors:
Altogether, these factors are expected to cause both Net Yields and NCCs for the full year 2012 to increase approximately 200 basis points and 300 basis points, respectively. Absent these factors, the company estimates that its "normalized" Net Yield growth would have been in the range of 2% to 4% on a Constant-Currency basis.
Impact of Costa Concordia
It is very difficult to assess the impact of the incident on our revenues. It has been the subject of extensive media coverage and world-wide attention. In addition, we curtailed our marketing activities as did most cruise lines and travel agencies. We believe that most observers and potential guests understand that cruising is safe and that this incident was a very rare anomaly in an otherwise reliably safe vacation. But in the near term it has a significant impact on our bookings.
We are pleased to note that there has been no material change in cancellation activity which has remained within normal levels. However, new booking activity has been hurt. Overall booking volumes from North America have fallen by low to mid-teen percentages versus same time last year for the last few weeks. In Europe, where media coverage has been more extensive, the decline has been higher, though results vary significantly by country. In aggregate the company's other markets, including Asia/Pacific and Latin America are down slightly. For the year as a whole, notwithstanding the recent slowdown, booked load factors and pricing are still higher than they were at the same time last year. This reflects the very robust starting position the company was in before the incident.
The impact on bookings has been greatest in the first three quarters and wanes as the year progresses. On the other hand, the first quarter also has more of its capacity booked making it less affected by changes in booking patterns. Spring and summer sailings are showing the largest declines in new bookings, while longer term bookings remain healthy. In addition, the company noted that the impact is much greater for first time cruisers compared to experienced cruisers. This reflects the greater knowledge experienced cruisers have about cruise vacations and ships.
Including the contribution from distribution changes and deployment initiatives noted above, the company currently anticipates yield improvement for the full year 2012 to be in a range between 1% and 5% on a Constant-Currency basis and between flat and 4% on an As-Reported basis versus the prior year.
Already, bookings have started to recover, particularly in North America and the company does not expect that this event will have a significant long term impact on its business.
Full Year 2012 Expenses
As previously mentioned, distribution changes and deployment initiatives will increase NCCs by approximately 300 basis points. Absent these changes, Constant-Currency NCC excluding fuel are expected to increase approximately 1% to 2% on a comparable basis (flat to 1% As-Reported.)
Taking into account the high degree of uncertainty surrounding current booking patterns, current fuel pricing and currency exchange rates, and the factors detailed above, the company anticipates 2012 earnings to be in the range of $1.90 to $2.30 per share.
FIRST QUARTER OUTLOOK
The company's booked load factors in the first quarter were already very strong prior to the incident. Subsequently, the quarter experienced a big percentage decline in new activity, but the bookings already in hand mean the company still expects yield improvements of 5% to 7% on a Constant-Currency basis (+4% to 6% As-Reported basis.) This estimate includes approximately 300 basis points relating to the previously referenced distribution and deployment items.
"We are still on track to achieve our original projections for the first quarter, but there is a high degree of uncertainty and it is difficult to judge the impact of the tragedy on the balance of the year," said Brian J. Rice, executive vice president and chief financial officer. Rice continued, "We have clearly lost some of our positive momentum in the short term. Fortunately, we had a very strong order book before the tragedy; our brands are back in the market advertising and we do not expect any significant long term impact to our business."
For the first quarter of 2012, NCC excluding fuel are expected to increase between 6% and 7% on a Constant-Currency basis (+5% to 6% As-Reported.) Approximately 450 basis points of the increase is due to the previously referenced distribution and deployment items. Revitalization dry-docks are also disproportionately weighted toward the first quarter.
Taking into account the high degree of uncertainty surrounding current booking patterns, current fuel pricing and currency exchange rates, and the factors detailed above, the company expects that first quarter 2012 EPS will likely be within a range of $0.10 to $0.20.
FUEL EXPENSE & GUIDANCE SUMMARY
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 $224 million and $889 million of fuel expense in its first quarter 2012 and full year 2012 guidance, respectively.
Forecasted consumption is now 55% hedged via swaps for all of 2012 and 47%, 30% and 20% for 2013, 2014 and 2015, respectively. For the same four-year period, the average cost per metric ton of the hedge portfolio is approximately $521, $518, $575 and $580, respectively.
In addition to the above-mentioned fuel hedges, the company also has fuel options to further protect against escalating fuel prices. The company currently has options expiring in 2013 at a strike price of $90 bbl that covers an estimated 11% of 2013 consumption.
The company provided the following fuel statistics for the first quarter and full year 2012:
FUEL STATISTICS First Quarter 2012 Full Year 2012 Fuel Consumption (metric tons) 341,000 1,354,000 Fuel Expenses $224 million $889 million Percent Hedged (fwd consumption) 53% 55% Impact of 10% change in fuel prices * $11 million $42 million *excludes mark-to-market impact of fuel options.
The company provided the following additional guidance for the first quarter and full year of 2012:

Liquidity and Financing Arrangements
As of December 31, 2011, liquidity was $1.1 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 noted that it reduced its outstanding debt by over $650 million during 2011 and debt maturities for 2012, 2013, and 2014 are $600 million, $1.6 billion, and $1.8 billion, respectively.
Capital Expenditures and Capacity Guidance
Based on current ship orders, projected capital expenditures for 2012, 2013 and 2014 are $1.2 billion, $500 million and $1.1 billion, respectively. The company has one option for a second Sunshine-Class vessel which would be delivered during the second quarter of 2015 that expires in late February 2012.
Capacity increases for 2012, 2013 and 2014 are 2.1%, 2.5% and 0.6%, respectively.
Conference Call Scheduled
The company has scheduled a conference call at 10 a.m. Eastern Standard Time today 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.
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 perio! d, 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 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 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 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 represent total revenues less commissions, transportation and other expenses and onboard and other expenses.
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, 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.
