    NEW YORK, Feb. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Weight Watchers International, Inc. (NYSE: WTW) today announced its results for the fourth quarter and full year of fiscal 2013 and provided full year fiscal 2014 earnings guidance.  Full year and fourth quarter 2013 results include:

    • Cash flow provided by operating activities totaled $323.5 million in fiscal 2013
    • Earnings per fully diluted share (EPS) for the quarter were $0.54

    "In Q4, we performed in line with our expectations," commented Jim Chambers, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer.

    Fourth quarter 2013 net income was $30.8 million versus $58.0 million in the prior year period. EPS for Q4 2013 was $0.54, which included $0.04 of expense in connection with the shutdown of our China business, versus $1.03 in the prior year period. Foreign currency had a de minimis impact on EPS in the fourth quarter 2013.

    Net income and EPS for Q4 2012 were impacted by a previously reported item that affected year-over-year comparability.  In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, the Company recognized a $4.1 million net benefit ($7.4 million pre-tax), or $0.07 per fully diluted share, from an accrual reversal associated with the settlement in the quarter of the previously reported UK self-employment tax litigation. Excluding this net benefit (after-tax) associated with the settlement, net income was $53.9 million and EPS was $0.96 in Q4 2012.

    Fourth quarter 2013 revenues decreased 11.1% on a constant currency basis versus the prior year period.  Q4 2013 total paid weeks were down 8.5% as compared to the prior year period.  Online paid weeks declined 6.5%, and meeting paid weeks declined 10.9%, versus the prior year period. These declines were driven by the lower active base at the start of the quarter and lower recruitments in both our businesses versus the prior year period.

    Fourth quarter 2013 operating income decreased 35.3% on a constant currency basis versus the prior year period. Excluding the Q4 2012 $14.5 million over-accrual reversal benefit associated with the settlement of the UK self-employment tax litigation, Q4 2013 operating income decreased 26.6% on a constant currency basis versus the prior year period.  This decrease was primarily driven by lower revenues in the meetings business.  In addition, in Q4 2013, lower marketing expense was almost fully offset by higher general and administrative costs, driven by a number of one-time costs, including costs relating to the shutdown of our China business.

    Fourth quarter 2013 Internet revenues declined 5.3% on a constant currency basis versus the prior year period.  This decline in Internet revenues was a deceleration from the growth of 0.9%, 6.6% and 10.9% experienced in Q3, Q2 and Q1 2013 versus the respective prior year periods.  This deceleration was driven primarily by declining sign-ups in the US business which continued through the quarter, as the commercial weight loss category continued to be impacted by increasing consumer trial of activity monitors and free apps. Online paid weeks declined 6.5%, and end of period active Online subscribers declined 6.7%, versus Q4 2012.

    Full year fiscal 2013 net income was $204.7 million versus $257.4 million in the prior year.  EPS for the full year of fiscal 2013 was $3.63 versus $4.23 in the prior year.

    Net income and EPS for the full year of fiscal 2013 were impacted by a $21.7 million ($13.3 million after tax), or $0.24 per fully diluted share, early extinguishment of debt charge recorded in the second quarter resulting from the write-off of fees associated with the Company's April 2013 debt refinancing.  Excluding this early extinguishment of debt charge (after tax), net income would have been $218.1 million and EPS would have been $3.87 for the full year of fiscal 2013.

    EPS in the full year of fiscal 2013 continued to benefit from the completion of the Company's previously disclosed tender offer and related stock repurchase transaction that took place in March and April 2012, respectively. Foreign currency had a de minimis impact on EPS for the full year of fiscal 2013.

    Full year fiscal 2013 revenues decreased 6.2% on a constant currency basis versus the prior year.  This decrease resulted from lower revenues in the meetings business as it experienced weaker volumes globally, most notably in North America and the UK. This decline in meetings business revenues was partially offset by modest revenue growth in the WeightWatchers.com business.  

    Full year fiscal 2013 total paid weeks were down 3.9% as compared to the prior year.  Online paid weeks increased 1.7% versus the prior year, while meeting paid weeks declined 10.1% versus the prior year.

    Full year fiscal 2013 operating income decreased 9.7% on a constant currency basis versus the prior year.  Excluding the $14.5 million over-accrual reversal benefit associated with the settlement in Q4 2012 of the UK self-employment tax litigation, operating income for the full year fiscal 2013 decreased by 7.0% on a constant currency basis versus the prior year.  Lower marketing expense, primarily from the elimination of inefficient digital advertising and the absence of a men's campaign in the United States, partially offset lower revenues in the meetings business.

    Full Year Fiscal 2014 Earnings Guidance
    The Company provided full year 2014 earnings guidance of between $1.30 and $1.60 per fully diluted share.  This guidance incorporates the fact that fiscal 2014 includes a 53rd week, which bridges the last week of December 2014 and the first week of January 2015 and has an expected negative $0.04 impact on the full year EPS.  During the first quarter of fiscal 2014, the Company intends to finalize plans to resize its organization. The costs associated with this plan are not included in the above earnings guidance.

    Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Conference Call
    The Company has scheduled a conference call today at 5:00 p.m. ET.  During the conference call, Jim Chambers, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, and Nick Hotchkin, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, will discuss fourth quarter and full year 2013 results and answer questions from the investment community.  Live audio of the conference call will be simultaneously webcast over the Internet on the Company's corporate website, www.weightwatchersinternational.com.  A replay of the webcast will be available on this site for approximately 90 days.

    Statement regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures
    The following provides information regarding non-GAAP financial measures used in this earnings release:

    To supplement the Company's consolidated results presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP), the Company has disclosed non-GAAP financial measures of operating results that exclude or adjust certain items.  Net income and earnings per fully diluted share with respect to the full year of fiscal 2013 are discussed in this release both as reported (on a GAAP basis) and as adjusted (on a non-GAAP basis) to exclude the impact from the early extinguishment of debt charge associated with the Company's previously reported debt refinancing.  Net income, operating income and earnings per fully diluted share with respect to the fourth quarter and full year of fiscal 2012 are discussed in this release both as reported (on a GAAP basis) and as adjusted (on a non-GAAP basis) to exclude the net benefit of the accrual reversal associated with the settlement of the Company's previously reported UK self-employment tax litigation.  Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation (EBITDAS) is presented in the attachments to this release.  In addition, the Company presents certain of its financial results on a constant currency basis in addition to GAAP results. Constant currency information compares results between periods as if exchange rates had remained constant period-over-period. In this release and any attachments, the Company calculates constant currency by calculating current-year results using prior-year foreign currency exchange rates.

    Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information for its and investors' evaluation of the Company's business performance and are useful for period-over-period comparisons of the performance of the Company's business.  While management believes that these financial measures are useful in evaluating the Company's business, this information should be considered as supplemental in nature and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.  In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be the same as similarly entitled measures reported by other companies.  See "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" attached to this release and reconciliations, if any, included elsewhere in this release for a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.
