Vail Resorts Reports Fiscal 2017 Third Quarter Results and Early Season Pass Sales Results

BROOMFIELD, Colo., June 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Vail Resorts, Inc. (NYSE: MTN) today reported results for its third quarter ended April 30, 2017, as well as the Company's results of its early season pass sales for the 2017/2018 North American ski season.

Highlights

Commenting on the Company's fiscal 2017 third quarter results, Rob Katz, Chief Executive Officer said, "We are pleased with our performance in the quarter and for the entirety of the 2016/2017 North American ski season. Including results from Whistler Blackcomb, total lift revenue increased 25.3%, driven by a 26.0% growth in visitation partially offset by a 0.5% decrease in effective ticket price ("ETP") compared to the same period in the prior year.  The ETP decline was driven by the inclusion of Whistler Blackcomb's ETP in results in fiscal 2017 which are lower on a U.S. dollar basis than the Company average.  Excluding Whistler Blackcomb, ETP increased 7.5% in the third fiscal quarter compared to the prior year. Guest spending continues to be strong which, with the addition of Whistler Blackcomb, drove a 23.5% increase in ski school revenue, a 28.7% increase in food and beverage revenue and a 28.6% increase in retail and rental revenue, compared to the same period in the prior year."

"Results from Whistler Blackcomb in the third quarter of fiscal 2017 continued to be exceptionally strong with the resort completing the season with significant growth above its record prior year.  The resort benefited from excellent conditions throughout the season, a low Canadian dollar versus U.S. dollar exchange rate driving significant destination growth from U.S. and other international guests and the outstanding experience the resort provides. Excluding Whistler Blackcomb operations, total lift revenue increased 5.6%. Park City continued to deliver the strongest growth among our U.S. resorts driven by growing destination visitation and yield improvements in our second season following the transformational investments to combine Park City and Canyons. The Tahoe resorts benefited from excellent conditions following the storms in January and achieved record revenue levels in all key business lines. In Colorado, strong guest spending drove results that were in-line with last year's record performance despite weaker snowfall later in the season. Third quarter U.S. destination visitation to our U.S. resorts remained robust, despite significant growth in the number of U.S. destination visitors going to Whistler Blackcomb. The strength in U.S. destination visitation to our U.S. resorts was partially offset by a decline in international visitation to our U.S. resorts from both Mexico and Canada, a trend that significantly benefited Whistler Blackcomb."

Katz continued, "Our year-to-date results highlight the continued success of our season pass and guest-focused marketing efforts, the importance of geographic and currency diversification in our resort network and the outstanding experience we provide at our resorts. Our growth in season pass sales continues to be driven by sales to both local and destination guests who increasingly appreciate our network of resorts and the compelling value proposition our season pass products offer for their ski vacations. We also continue to benefit from our improved ability to segment and personalize our marketing messages to guests resulting from the significant investments we have made in data capture and analytics over the past several years."

Regarding Lodging, Katz said, "Our Lodging results for the third fiscal quarter were impacted by the variable late season conditions in Colorado (which comprise a disproportionate amount of our Lodging portfolio versus our properties in Utah, California and Whistler) and the sale of the Inn at Keystone in November 2016. Revenue (excluding payroll cost reimbursements) decreased 6.3% and revenue per available room ("RevPAR") increased 0.3% compared to the same period in the prior year, which included the receipt of a one-time $3.5 million termination fee for Half Moon Resort in Jamaica."

Katz continued, "Resort Reported EBITDA was $392.0 million for the fiscal quarter, an increase of 27.9% over the same period in the prior year, primarily as a result of the acquisition of Whistler Blackcomb. Resort EBITDA Margin for the quarter was 49.6%, an increase of 210 basis points."

Regarding Real Estate, Katz said, "During the fiscal quarter, we closed on two condominium units at Ritz-Carlton Residences, Vail. Net Real Estate Cash Flow for the third quarter of fiscal 2017 was $2.8 million. Since April 30, 2017, we have closed on the last remaining condominium unit at Ritz-Carlton Residences, Vail. We are now sold-out of our One Ski Hill Place and Ritz-Carlton Residences, Vail residential condominium projects. Real Estate EBITDA for the third quarter of fiscal 2017 includes a $4.3 million one-time charge related to our expected contribution to a new, to be constructed, Town of Vail owned 160 space public parking structure, in a project that was recently identified by the Town. The creation of this new public parking and our related contribution has been under consideration for over a decade and will be a great enhancement to the guest experience as Vail continues to grow."

Katz continued, "Our balance sheet remains strong and the business continues to generate robust cash flow. We ended the quarter with $195.8 million of cash on hand and our Net Debt, including the capitalized Canyons obligation, was 1.7 times trailing twelve months Total Reported EBITDA, which includes our outstanding debt of $1.2 billion as of April 30, 2017. I am also very pleased to announce that our Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend on Vail Resorts' common stock. The quarterly dividend will be $1.053 per share of common stock and will be payable on July 13, 2017 to shareholders of record on June 28, 2017."

Operating Results

A complete Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations can be found in the Company's Form 10-Q for the third quarter ended April 30, 2017 filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The following are segment highlights for the three month period ended April 30, 2017:

Mountain Segment

Lodging Segment

Resort - Combination of Mountain and Lodging Segments

Real Estate Segment

Total Performance

Return of Capital

The Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $1.053 per share of Vail Resorts common stock that will be payable on July 13, 2017 to shareholders of record on June 28, 2017.  Additionally, a Canadian dollar equivalent dividend on the exchangeable shares of Whistler Blackcomb will be payable on July 13, 2017 to exchangeable shareholders of record on June 28, 2017. The exchangeable shares were issued to certain Canadian persons in connection with our acquisition of Whistler Blackcomb.

Stowe Mountain Resort

On June 7, 2017, the Company announced the closing of the Stowe acquisition. The final purchase price, after adjustments, including a reduction in the price by the amount that the resort's EBITDA exceeded capital expenditures for the period from November 1, 2016 through closing, was approximately $41 million. Stowe is now included on the Epic Pass and other season pass products for the 2017/2018 ski season, though full integration will not occur until after the 2017/2018 ski season.

Season Pass Sales

Commenting on the Company's season pass sales for the upcoming 2017/2018 North American ski season, Katz said, "We are very pleased with the results for our season pass sales to date. Pass sales through May 30, 2017 for the upcoming 2017/2018 North American ski season increased approximately 10% in units and approximately 16% in sales dollars, as compared to the prior year period through May 31, 2016. This represents continued significant growth over our record unit performance last spring (up 29% over spring 2015) and in the spring of 2015 (up 12% over spring 2014). Our spring pass sales included strong growth from our destination guests and particular strength in our Northern California and Pacific Northwest local markets following great conditions in the 2016/2017 ski season and the full inclusion of Whistler Blackcomb on the Epic Pass for next season.  Whistler Blackcomb pass products are included in both current and prior year periods at comparable exchange rates with the exception of one and three day EDGE cards, the vast majority of which were sold after the beginning of the ski season and will not be offered for the 2017/2018 ski season.  While in the past two years we have seen a material deceleration of our pass sales growth rate from spring results to fall results, we expect the growth rate this year to be more stable between the two time periods."

Katz continued, "We look forward to being able to fully include Stowe in our season pass marketing efforts this fall and incorporating the guest information they have into our data-based, CRM efforts.  Further, we look forward to beginning our more comprehensive guest information collection effort at Whistler Blackcomb for the upcoming season. Historically, Whistler Blackcomb has had information on only approximately 20% of their non-season pass guests, dramatically lower than our U.S. resorts' data capture of approximately 96%.  We have found that this information and the ability to better segment and personalize our communications to our guests has been one of the largest drivers of our season pass growth in past years, setting us up very well for continued pass sales growth for fiscal 2019 and beyond."

Regarding Epic Australia Pass sales, Katz commented, "Perisher's 2017 ski season kicked off one week earlier than scheduled on June 3, and we are very pleased with sales of the Epic Australia Pass, which end on June 12, 2017 and are up 21% in units through June 4, 2017, as compared to the prior year period through June 5, 2016, benefiting from the addition of Whistler Blackcomb to the resort network, which is one of the top North American ski destinations of choice for Australians."

Epic Discovery Update

Commenting on the launch of Epic Discovery at Breckenridge this summer, Katz said, "We are very excited to welcome visitors to the first year of Epic Discovery at Breckenridge, which will officially open this weekend along with our second full years at Vail and Heavenly. Our summer guests will have the opportunity to enjoy a great lineup of activities for the whole family, including ropes courses, zip lines, summer tubing and alpine coasters, along with incredible opportunities for experiential learning in a high alpine environment."

(1) Mountain Reported EBITDA includes approximately $15 million of stock-based compensation.

(2) Lodging Reported EBITDA includes approximately $3 million of stock-based compensation.

(3) The Company provides Reported EBITDA ranges for the Mountain and Lodging segments, as well as for the two combined. The low and high of the expected ranges provided for the Mountain and Lodging segments, while possible, do not sum to the high or low end of the Resort Reported EBITDA range provided because we do not expect or assume that we will hit the low or high end of both ranges.

(4) Our guidance includes a $15.1 million loss for the change in the fair value of contingent consideration during the nine months ended April 30, 2017, which is based upon, among other things, financial projections including long-term growth rates for Park City. Our guidance excludes any forward-looking change in the fair value of contingent consideration, which such change may be material.

(5) Our guidance includes a foreign currency loss of $3.9 million on intercompany loans with Whistler Blackcomb during the nine months ended April 30, 2017. This intercompany loan requires foreign currency remeasurement to Canadian dollars, the functional currency of Whistler Blackcomb. Our guidance excludes any forward-looking change related to foreign currency gains or losses on the intercompany loans, which such change may be material.

(6) Guidance estimates are predicated on an exchange rate of $0.74 between the Canadian Dollar and U.S. Dollar, related to the operations of Whistler Blackcomb in Canada and an exchange rate of $0.76 between the Australian Dollar and U.S. Dollar, related to the operations of Perisher in Australia.

Statement Concerning Non-GAAP Financial Measures

When reporting financial results, we use the terms Reported EBITDA, Resort EBITDA Margin, Net Debt and Net Real Estate Cash Flow, which are not financial measures under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). Reported EBITDA, Resort EBITDA Margin, Net Debt and Net Real Estate Cash Flow should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to, or substitute for, measures of financial performance or liquidity prepared in accordance with GAAP. Accordingly, these measures may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures of other companies.

Reported EBITDA has been presented herein as a measure of the Company's performance. The Company believes that Reported EBITDA is an indicative measurement of the Company's operating performance, and is similar to performance metrics generally used by investors to evaluate other companies in the resort and lodging industries. The Company defines Resort EBITDA Margin as Resort Reported EBITDA divided by Resort net revenue. The Company believes Resort EBITDA Margin is an important measurement of operating performance. The Company believes that Net Debt is an important measurement of liquidity as it is an indicator of the Company's ability to obtain additional capital resources for its future cash needs. Additionally, the Company believes Net Real Estate Cash Flow is important as a cash flow indicator for its Real Estate segment. See the tables provided in this release for reconciliations of our measures of segment profitability and non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
