    Weight Watchers Announces First Quarter 2014 Results And Raises Its Fiscal 2014 Earnings Guidance

    NEW YORK, April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Weight Watchers International, Inc. (NYSE: WTW) today announced its results for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 and raised its full year fiscal 2014 earnings guidance.  First quarter 2014 results include:

    First quarter 2014 net income was $21.5 million versus $48.8 million in the prior year period.  EPS for Q1 2014 was $0.38 versus $0.87 in the prior year period. Foreign currency had a de minimis impact on EPS in the first quarter 2014.

    Net income and EPS for Q1 2014 were impacted by two items that affect year-over-year comparability.  First, in March 2014, the Company acquired an additional 45% equity interest in its Brazilian partnership thereby increasing its equity interest to 80%. As a result of this transaction, the Company adjusted its previously held equity interest to fair value and recorded a charge associated with the settlement of the royalty-free arrangement of the Brazilian partnership.  The net effect of these items resulted in the Company recognizing a gain of $10.5 million ($6.4 million after-tax or $0.11 per fully diluted share) in Q1 2014. Second, the Company incurred restructuring charges of $3.7 million  ($2.2 million after-tax or $0.04 per fully diluted share) in connection with the first phase of its previously disclosed plan to resize its organization.  Excluding these two items, net income would have been $17.4 million and fully diluted EPS would have been $0.31 in Q1 2014.

    First quarter 2014 revenues, net decreased 16.9% on a constant currency basis versus the prior year period. This decrease was primarily driven by lower revenues in North America. Q1 2014 total paid weeks were down 13.9% as compared to the prior year period, with an Online paid weeks decline of 12.2% and meeting paid weeks decline of 16.0%.  These declines were driven by lower active subscriber bases for both Monthly Pass and Online at the start of the year and lower recruitments in both the Company's meetings and Online businesses versus the prior year period.

    First quarter 2014 operating income decreased 50.2% on a constant currency basis versus the prior year period. Excluding the Q1 2014 $3.7 million of restructuring charges, Q1 2014 operating income decreased 46.7% on a constant currency basis versus the prior year period.  Operating income decline was driven primarily by lower revenues in North America.

    First quarter 2014 service revenues, net for the North America business were down 18.3% on a constant currency basis versus the prior year period driven by a 17.2% decline in total paid weeks.  The paid weeks decline was driven by lower Monthly Pass and Online active subscriber bases at the start of the year and lower first quarter 2014 recruitments as compared to the prior year period.  Despite the launch of Simple Start at the beginning of the year, recruitment softness continued, impacted by activity monitors and free apps that generated significant consumer interest and influenced trial dynamics in the category.

    First quarter 2014 service revenues, net for the Continental Europe (CE) business were up 1.5% on a constant currency basis versus the prior year period driven by a 2.8% increase in total paid weeks. This increase in total paid weeks was primarily driven by a higher active Online subscriber base at the beginning of the year as compared to the prior year which offset recruitment softness in Q1 2014.

    Full Year Fiscal 2014 Earnings Guidance
    The Company raised its full year fiscal 2014 earnings guidance to between $1.45 and $1.70 per fully diluted share from 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. Excluded from the above earnings guidance are the following items: the one-time gain associated with the Brazil acquisition of $0.11, the anticipated full year, aggregate restructuring charges in connection with the Company's organizational resizing of approximately $0.11 and the tax benefit associated with the China intercompany loan write-off, which is anticipated to be booked in the second quarter of fiscal 2014, in connection with the closure of the Company's China business of approximately $0.07.

    First Quarter 2014 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, Nick Hotchkin, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, and Dan Crowe, Chief Technology Officer of the Company, will discuss first quarter 2014 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 first quarter of fiscal 2014 are discussed in this release both as reported (on a GAAP basis) and as adjusted (on a non-GAAP basis) to exclude the impact of the benefit from the Brazil acquisition.  Net income, earnings per fully diluted share and operating income with respect to the first quarter of fiscal 2014 are discussed in this release both as reported (on a GAAP basis) and as adjusted (on a non-GAAP basis) to exclude the impact of expenses associated with the Company's previously disclosed resizing of its organization.  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.
