Marriott International Inc. Reports Operating Results (10-K)

February 16, 2012 | About:

Marriott International Inc. (NASDAQ:MAR) filed Annual Report for the period ended 2011-12-30.

Marriott International Inc. has a market cap of $11.97 billion; its shares were traded at around $34.78 with a P/E ratio of 27.3 and P/S ratio of 1. The dividend yield of Marriott International Inc. stocks is 1.1%.

Highlight of Business Operations:

Operating income increased by $847 million to operating income of $695 million in 2010 from an operating loss of $152 million in 2009. The increase in operating income reflected a favorable variance of $614 million related to Timeshare strategy-impairment charges recorded in 2009, $116 million of higher Timeshare sales and services revenue net of direct expenses, a $73 million increase in base management and franchise fees, a $51 million decrease in restructuring costs, $28 million of higher incentive management fees, and $23 million of higher owned, leased, corporate housing, and other revenue net of direct expenses, partially offset by a $58 million increase in general, administrative, and other expenses. We note the reasons for the increase of $73 million in base management and franchise fees as well as the increase of $28 million in incentive management fees as compared to 2009 in the preceding “Revenues” section.

Net income and net income attributable to Marriott decreased by $260 million (57 percent) to $198 million in 2011 from $458 million in 2010, and diluted earnings per share attributable to Marriott decreased by $0.66 per share (55 percent) to $0.55 per share from $1.21 per share in 2010. As discussed in more detail in the preceding sections beginning with “Operating Income (Loss),” the $260 million decrease in net income compared to the prior year was due to Timeshare strategy-impairment charges ($324 million), higher income taxes ($65 million), lower gains and other income ($42 million), lower Timeshare sales and services revenue net of direct expenses ($40 million), and lower interest income ($5 million). Higher base management and franchise fees ($105 million), higher owned, leased, corporate housing, and other revenue net of direct expenses ($49 million), lower general, administrative, and other expenses ($28 million), lower interest expense ($16 million), higher incentive management fees ($13 million), and lower equity in losses ($5 million) partially offset these items.

Net income of $458 million in 2010 increased by $811 million (230 percent) from a loss of $353 million in 2009, net income attributable to Marriott of $458 million in 2010 increased by $804 million (232 percent) from a loss of $346 million in 2009, and diluted income per share attributable to Marriott of $1.21 per share increased by $2.18 (225 percent) from losses of $0.97 per share in 2009. As discussed in more detail in the preceding sections beginning with “Operating Income (Loss),” the $458 million increase in net income compared to the prior year was due to a favorable variance related to Timeshare strategy-impairment charges in 2009 ($752 million), higher Timeshare sales and services revenue net of direct expenses ($116 million), lower restructuring costs ($51 million), higher base management and franchise fees ($73 million), lower equity in losses ($48 million), higher incentive management fees ($28 million), higher owned, leased, corporate housing, and other revenue net of direct expenses ($23 million), and higher gains and other income ($4 million). These favorable variances were partially offset by higher income taxes ($158 million), higher general, administrative, and other expenses ($58 million), higher interest expense ($62 million), and lower interest income ($6 million).

The year-over-year increase in revenues included a $604 million increase in cost reimbursements revenue, which does not impact operating income or net income. Total segment financial results, compared to 2010, primarily reflected $324 million of Timeshare strategy-impairment charges, a decrease of $40 million in Timeshare sales and services revenue net of direct expenses, a $24 million decrease in gains and other income, and a $6 million increase in general, administrative, and other expenses. Partially offsetting these unfavorable factors were: a $101 million increase in base management and franchise fees to $1,104 million in 2011 from $1,003 million in 2010, an increase of $37 million in owned, leased, corporate housing, and other revenue net of direct expenses, $13 million of higher incentive management fees to $195 million in 2011 from $182 million in 2010, $13 million of lower joint venture equity losses, and a $12 million decrease in interest expense. For more detailed information on the variances see the preceding sections beginning with “Operating Income (Loss).”

The year-over-year increase in revenues included a $557 million increase in cost reimbursements revenue, which does not impact operating income or net income attributable to Marriott. The results, compared to 2009, reflected a favorable variance from $685 million of 2009 Timeshare strategy-impairment charges, $614 million of which were reported in the “Timeshare strategy-impairment charges” caption and $71 million of which were reported in the “Timeshare strategy-impairment charges (non-operating)” caption of our Income Statements, an increase of $116 million in Timeshare sales and services revenue net of direct expenses, $19 million of decreased general, administrative, and other expenses, a $73 million increase in base management and franchise fees to $1,003 million in 2010 from $930 million in 2009, a $48 million decrease in restructuring costs, $35 million of lower joint venture equity losses, $28 million of higher incentive management fees to $182
