Thursday, October 25, 2012

Royal Caribbean Reports Third Quarter Results And Updates 2012 Guidance08:32 EDT Thursday, October 25, 2012MIAMI, Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. (NYSE, OSE: RCL) today reported better than expected third quarter results and increased its earnings outlook for full year 2012.KEY HIGHLIGHTSResults For the Third Quarter 2012:Both close-in booking activity and cost controls were stronger than the company anticipated in its previous guidance.  Net Yields increased 0.1% on a Constant-Currency basis (down 2.4% As-Reported); Net Cruise Costs ("NCC") excluding fuel increased 2.0% on a Constant-Currency basis (declined 0.2% As-Reported); and Net income was $367.8 million, or $1.68 per share, versus net income of $399.0 million, or $1.82 per share, in 2011.  Fourth Quarter 2012: Net Yields are expected to increase approximately 1% on both a Constant-Currency and As-Reported basis;  NCC excluding fuel are expected to be up approximately 1% on a Constant-Currency basis and flat to up 1% on an As-Reported basis; and Earnings per share are expected to be within a range of ($0.02) to $0.08.Full Year 2012: Net Yields are expected to increase approximately 3% on a Constant-Currency basis and  1% to 2% on an As-Reported basis; NCC excluding fuel are expected to be up approximately 4% on a Constant-Currency basis and up 2% to 3% on an As-Reported basis; and Earnings per share are expected to be within a range of $1.85 to $1.95."The strong third quarter certainly validates our confidence in our business model," said Richard D. Fain, chairman and chief executive officer.  "Strong close-in demand and our focus on costs drove substantially better results than expected.  I am especially gratified that we are still seeing price increases in a year marked by so many external pressures," Fain continued.Third Quarter 2012 ResultsRoyal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. today announced third quarter 2012 net income of $367.8 million, or $1.68 per share, versus income of $399.0 million, or $1.82 per share, in the third quarter of 2011.  Close-in bookings for the third quarter across most itineraries ? including Europe ? were stronger than anticipated, resulting in a Net Yield increase of 0.1% on a Constant-Currency basis.  NCC excluding fuel were also better than anticipated and increased 2.0% on a Constant-Currency basis (declined 0.2% As-Reported).  Approximately 200 basis points of the Net Yield improvement and approximately 220 basis points of the NCC excluding fuel increases during the quarter relate to previously announced deployment initiatives and changes to the company's international distribution system.Bunker pricing net of hedging for the third quarter was $639 per metric ton and consumption was 334,200 metric tons.  OutlookFourth Quarter 2012As the company anticipated in February, the tragedy in Italy had its biggest yield impact in the second and third quarters of the year.  The effect of the incident on bookings has continued to wane and fourth quarter 2012 Net Yields are expected to increase approximately 1% on both Constant-Currency and As-Reported bases.  Excluding previously referenced deployment initiatives and changes to the company's international distribution system, Net Yields for the quarter are expected to be approximately flat.For the fourth quarter of 2012, NCC excluding fuel are expected to be up approximately 1% on a Constant-Currency basis and flat to up 1% on an As-Reported basis.  Excluding the deployment initiatives and changes to the company's international distribution system, NCC excluding fuel are expected to be approximately flat on both a Constant-Currency and As-Reported basis. Full Year 2012The company increased its guidance for full year earnings per share by $0.15 to a range of $1.85 to $1.95. This increase has been mainly driven by stronger than anticipated revenue (+$0.06 per share) and expense reduction (+$0.06 per share).  The remaining $0.03 per share improvement is principally due to currency benefits net of oil price increases.  For the full year of 2012, Net Yields are expected to increase approximately 3% on a Constant-Currency basis and to be up  1% to 2% on an As-Reported basis.  Approximately 200-250 basis points of the expected improvement in Net Yields relates to deployment initiatives and changes to the company's international distribution system.      For the full year, NCC excluding fuel are expected to increase approximately 4% on a Constant-Currency basis (up 2% to 3% As-Reported).  Excluding deployment initiatives and changes to the company's distribution system, Constant-Currency NCC excluding fuel are expected to be flat to up 1%. Capacity AdditionsThe company noted that it is engaged in negotiations for the possible construction of an Oasis-type newbuild that would be delivered in middle to late 2016.  While the company has not entered into any agreement at this time, it hopes to do so before year's end.  The new ship is expected to cost less on a per berth basis than either of the first two Oasis-class vessels.  "The Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas have proven themselves to be exceptionally attractive ships by generating the highest guest satisfaction ratings in the fleet coupled with very compelling financial returns," said Richard D. Fain, chairman and chief executive officer.  Fain continued, "Ordering another such ship for delivery in 2016, at a lower cost, with better energy efficiency is very consistent with our balanced goals of prudent growth, return improvement and debt reduction."  2013 Outlook The company noted that while it is very early in the 2013 bookings cycle and visibility at this time is limited, the company is encouraged by the trends so far.  For the year 2013, booked load factors and average per diems are both slightly higher currently than at this same time last year. This is particularly encouraging in light of the fact that these prior year comparisons relate to bookings before the Costa Concordia incident which occurred in January 2012.      FUEL EXPENSE & GUIDANCE SUMMARYFuel ExpenseThe 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 $229 million and $910 million of fuel expense in its fourth quarter 2012 and full year 2012 guidance, respectively.  Forecasted consumption is now 58% hedged via swaps for the remainder of 2012 and 54%, 45%,  25% and 7% hedged for 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016, respectively.  For the same five-year period, the average cost per metric ton of the hedge portfolio is approximately $522, $568, $623, $610 and $582, respectively.  During the third quarter the company fully liquidated its previously disclosed WTI fuel option portfolio resulting in a $1.8 million gain.  Year-to-date through September, the company has recorded a net loss of $5.7 million on this portfolio.The company provided the following fuel statistics for the fourth quarter and full year 2012:FUEL STATISTICSFourth Quarter 2012Full Year 2012Fuel Consumption (metric tons)344,0001,363,000Fuel Expenses$229 million$910 millionPercent Hedged (fwd consumption)58%58%Impact of 10% change in fuel prices $9 million$9 millionThe company provided the following additional guidance for the fourth quarter and full year of 2012:GUIDANCEAs-Reported                    Constant-CurrencyFourth Quarter 2012Net YieldsApprox. 1%Approx. 1%Net Cruise Costs per APCDApprox. 2%2% to 3%Net Cruise Costs per APCD,excluding FuelFlat to 1%Approx. 1%Full Year 2012Net Yields1% to 2%Approx. 3%Net Cruise Costs per APCD5% to 6%Approx. 7%Net Cruise Costs per APCD,excluding Fuel2% to 3% Approx. 4%Fourth Quarter 2012Full Year 2012Capacity Increase1.4%1.4%Depreciation and Amortization$185 to $195 million$725 to $735 millionInterest Expense, net$80 to $90 million$330 to $340 millionEPS($0.02) to $0.08$1.85 to $1.95Exchange rates used in guidance calculationsCurrent ?

In part, this additional liquidity was used for the early extinguishment of ?255 million (or approximately 25%) of the company's ?1.0 billion senior notes due in January 2014.The company also has committed unsecured financing for its remaining newbuilds.  The company noted that scheduled debt maturities for 2012, 2013 and 2014 are now $600 million, $1.5 billion and $1.5 billion, respectively.  Capital Expenditures and Capacity GuidanceBased on current ship orders, projected capital expenditures for 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 are $1.3 billion, $600 million, $1.1 billion and $1.0 billion, respectively.  Capacity increases for 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 are 1.4%, 1.3%, 1.0% and 6.5%, respectively.Conference Call Scheduled The company has scheduled a conference call at 10 a.m. Eastern Daylight 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 www.rclinvestor.com. Selected Operational and Financial MetricsAvailable 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-CurrencyWe 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 CostsGross 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 FuelNet 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-CapitalNet 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 RevenuesNet 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.OccupancyOccupancy, 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 DaysPassenger Cruise Days represent the number of passengers carried for the period multiplied by the number of days of their respective cruises.Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.
