Footnotes:

1   See Tables 5a and 5b. Operating EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before depreciation and amortization, interest expense, net (other than relocation services interest for securitization assets and securitization obligations), income taxes, and other items that are not core to the operating activities of the Company such as restructuring charges, former parent legacy items, gains or losses on the early extinguishment of debt, impairments, gains or losses on discontinued operations and gains or losses on the sale of investments or other assets.

2  See Table 1a. Adjusted Net income (loss) is defined as net income (loss) before mark-to-market interest rate swap adjustments, former parent legacy items, restructuring charges, (gain) loss on the early extinguishment of debt, impairments and the tax effect of the foregoing adjustments. Adjusted earnings (loss) per share is Adjusted net income (loss) divided by the weighted average common and common equivalent shares outstanding.

3  See Table 7. Free Cash Flow is defined as net income (loss) attributable to Realogy before income tax expense (benefit), net of payments, net interest expense, cash interest payments, depreciation and amortization, capital expenditures, restructuring costs and former parent legacy costs (benefits), net of payments, impairments, (gain) loss on the early extinguishment of debt, working capital adjustments and relocation receivables (assets), net of change in securitization obligations.

4  Includes all franchisees except for Realogy Brokerage Group.

5  The Company’s combined homesale transaction volume growth (transaction sides multiplied by average sale price) increased 3% compared with the fourth quarter of 2020 and increased 29% compared with the year ended 2020.

2022 Financial Guidance

Realogy expects Operating EBITDA for full year 2022 in the range of $800 to $850 million based on year-over-year mid-single digit homesale transaction volume growth, closing of the pending sale of the Company’s title insurance underwriter, continued investment in strategic initiatives, absorption of increased agent commission costs, and achievement of targeted realized cost savings in 2022. This guidance is subject to macroeconomic uncertainties as well as changes in housing market conditions.

The Company expects a return to historical seasonality patterns in 2022 (which have experienced disruption since the onset of the COVID-19 crisis in March 2020). Consistent with typical seasonality patterns, and with the first quarter typically being the smallest earnings quarter of our year, the Company forecasts that Operating EBITDA generated in the first quarter of 2022 will be well below the unseasonably high Operating EBITDA delivered in the first quarter of 2021.

Capital Allocation and New Share Repurchase Authorization

Realogy today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a new share repurchase program for up to $300 million of the Company’s common stock. Repurchases may be made at management’s discretion from time to time on the open market or through privately negotiated transactions. The actual timing, number and value of shares repurchased will be determined by Company management and may fluctuate based on a number of factors, including, but not limited to, the Company’s priorities for the use of cash, price, market and economic conditions, and legal and contractual requirements (including compliance with the terms of the Company’s debt agreements). The repurchase program has no time limit and may be suspended or discontinued at any time.

“Given the meaningful progress we have made on our capital allocation priorities, as we enter the next chapter of our transformation we are excited about the opportunity created by our strong momentum to shift focus towards investing in growth, delivering value to our shareholders, and reinforcing our industry leadership,” added Simonelli.

Balance Sheet

The Company ended the year with cash and cash equivalents of $735 million*. Total corporate debt, including the short-term portion, net of cash and cash equivalents (net corporate debt), totaled $2.3 billion at December 31, 2021. The Company’s Net Debt Leverage Ratio was 2.4x at December 31, 2021 (see Table 8b).

On January 10, 2022, we issued $1,000 million of 5.25% Senior Notes due in 2030. On February 4, 2022, the Company used the net proceeds from the issuance, together with cash on hand, to redeem in full both the $550 million of 9.375% Senior Notes and $550 million of 7.625% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes, each at a redemption price of 100% plus the applicable “make whole” premium together with accrued interest to the redemption date on both such notes.

A consolidated balance sheet is included as Table 2 of this press release.

*

includes approximately $150 million of cash held as statutory reserves by our title insurance underwriter but excludes restricted cash.

the impact of evolving competitive and consumer dynamics, which could include, but are not limited to: our share of the commission income generated by homesale transactions may continue to shift to affiliated independent sales agents or otherwise erode due to market factors, our ability to compete against traditional and non-traditional competitors (including but not limited to, virtual brokerages, iBuying and home swap business models or other providers of disruptive products and services, in particular those competitors with access to significant third-party capital that may prioritize market share over profitability), and meaningful decreases in the average broker commission rate; adverse impacts from the COVID-19 crisis (due to the impact of virus mutations or otherwise), including amplification of risks to our business, adverse economic consequences, or the reinstatement of significant limitations on normal business operations; our ability to execute our business strategy and achieve growth, including our efforts to: recruit and retain productive independent sales agents, attract and retain franchisees or renew existing franchise agreements without reducing contractual royalty rates or increasing the amount and prevalence of sales incentives, develop or procure products, services and technology that support our strategic initiatives, realize the expected benefits from our existing or future joint ventures and strategic partnerships, simplify and modernize our business and achieve or maintain a beneficial cost structure or savings and other benefits from our cost-saving initiatives, generate a meaningful number of high-quality leads for independent sales agents and franchisees, or complete or integrate acquisitions and joint ventures or effectively manage divestitures; our geographic and high-end market concentration; the operating results of affiliated franchisees (and their ability to pay franchise and related fees); continued consolidation among our top 250 franchisees; difficulties in the business or changes in the licensing strategy of, or disagreements or complications in our relationships with, the owners of the two brands we do not own; the loss of (or significant reduction in volume from) our largest real estate benefit program client or multiple significant relocation clients; the failure of third-party vendors or partners to perform as expected or our failure to adequately monitor them; our reliance on information technology to operate our business and maintain our competitiveness; further disruption in the residential real estate brokerage industry related to listing aggregators market power and concentration; industry structure changes that disrupt the functioning of the residential real estate market (including as a result of legal or regulatory developments or revisions to the rules of multiple listing services or NAR); satisfaction of the closing conditions for the planned sale of our title insurance underwriter and our ability to achieve the anticipated benefits of the transactions; adverse effects on our operations or liquidity due to our substantial indebtedness, including with respect to our interest obligations, the negative covenant restrictions contained in our debt agreements, and our ability to refinance or repay our indebtedness or incur additional indebtedness; risks related to the issuance of our 0.25% Exchangeable Senior Notes and exchangeable note hedge and warrant transactions, including the potential impact on the value of our common stock and counterparty risk; our failure or alleged failure to comply with laws, regulations and regulatory interpretations and any changes or stricter interpretations of any of the foregoing (whether through private litigation or governmental action), including but not limited to: (1) antitrust laws and regulations, (2) the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (“RESPA”) or other federal or state consumer protection or similar laws, (3) state or federal employment laws or regulations that would require reclassification of independent contractor sales agents to employee status, (2) privacy or data security laws and regulations and (4) privacy or data security laws and regulations; cybersecurity incidents; impairment of our goodwill and other long-lived assets; severe weather events or natural disasters, including increasing severity or frequency of such events, or other catastrophic events, including public health crises, such as pandemics and epidemics; the accuracy of market forecasts and estimates and our ability to grow at similar rates; and significant fluctuations in our stock price, including in connection with share repurchase programs.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined under SEC rules. As required by SEC rules, important information regarding such measures is contained in the Tables attached to this release. See Tables 1a, 8a, 8b and 9 for definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures and Tables 1a, 5a, 5b, 6a, 6b, 7, 8a and 8b for reconciliations of the historical non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP terms.

Because of the forward-looking nature of the Company’s forecasted non-GAAP financial measure, specific quantifications of the amounts that would be required to reconcile forecasted Operating EBITDA to forecasted net income are not determinable without unreasonable efforts. The Company believes that there is a degree of volatility with respect to certain of the Company’s GAAP measures which preclude the Company from providing accurate forecasted GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliations. The Company believes that providing estimates of the amounts that would be required to reconcile the range of the non-GAAP measures to forecasted GAAP measures would imply a degree of precision that would be confusing or misleading to investors for the reasons identified above.

NAR data referenced herein is based on NAR’s most recent public estimates, which are subject to review and revision. Factors that may impact the comparability of the Company’s homesale statistics to NAR are outlined in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31, 2021, June 30, 2021 and September 30, 2021 and its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.

ADJUSTED NET INCOME AND ADJUSTED EARNINGS PER SHARE
(In millions, except per share data)

We present Adjusted net income (loss) and Adjusted earnings (loss) per share because we believe these measures are useful as supplemental measures in evaluating the performance of our operating businesses and provide greater transparency into our operating results.

Adjusted net income (loss) is defined by us as net income (loss) before: (a) mark-to-market interest rate swap adjustments, whose fair value is subject to movements in LIBOR and the forward yield curve and therefore are subject to significant fluctuations; (b) former parent legacy items, which pertain to liabilities of the former parent for matters prior to mid-2006 and are non-operational in nature; (c) restructuring charges as a result of initiatives currently in progress; (d) impairments; (e) the (gain) loss on the early extinguishment of debt that results from refinancing and deleveraging debt initiatives and (f) the tax effect of the foregoing adjustments.  The gross amounts for these items as well as the adjustment for income taxes are shown in the table below.

Adjusted earnings (loss) per share is Adjusted net income (loss) divided by the weighted average common and common equivalent shares outstanding.

Set forth in the table below is a reconciliation of Net income (loss) to Adjusted net income for the three-month periods and years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020:

(b)

Non-cash impairments for the three months ended December 31, 2021 primarily relate to lease asset impairments.  Non-cash impairments for the three months ended December 31, 2020 include a goodwill impairment charge of $22 million related to Cartus Relocation Services, an impairment charge of $34 million related to Cartus Relocation Services’ trademarks and $16 million of other impairment charges primarily related to lease asset impairments.

(c)

Revenues include the elimination of transactions between segments, which consists of intercompany royalties and marketing fees paid by Realogy Brokerage Group of $100 million and $96 million during the three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively, and are eliminated through the Corporate and Other line.

(d)

Realogy Title Group (RTG) includes our title, escrow and settlement services (title agency), title insurance underwriter and mortgage origination joint venture businesses. The title agency and title insurance underwriter businesses represented approximately 60% and 40%, respectively, of RTG’s net revenues for the three-month period ended December 31, 2021. Excluding the mortgage origination joint venture from Operating EBITDA, title agency and title insurance underwriter represented approximately 50% and 50%, respectively of Operating EBITDA for the three-months ended December 31, 2021. The year-over-year decline in Operating EBITDA contribution from the mortgage origination joint venture, from no earnings for the three-months ended December 31, 2021 compared to earnings of $31 million for the three-months ended December 31, 2020, was primarily driven by the impact of gain-on-sale margin compression and a decline in refinance volumes, partially offset by higher purchase volume growth.

(e)

The segment numbers noted above do not reflect the impact of intercompany royalties and marketing fees paid by Realogy Brokerage Group to Realogy Franchise Group of $100 million and $96 million during the three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

NON-GAAP RECONCILIATION – SENIOR SECURED LEVERAGE RATIO
FOR THE YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2021
(In millions)

The senior secured leverage ratio is tested quarterly pursuant to the terms of the senior secured credit facilities*.  For the trailing four-quarter period ended December 31, 2021, Realogy Group LLC was required to maintain a senior secured leverage ratio not to exceed 4.75 to 1.00.  The senior secured leverage ratio is measured by dividing Realogy Group LLC’s total senior secured net debt by the trailing twelve-month EBITDA calculated on a Pro Forma Basis, as those terms are defined in the Senior Secured Credit Agreement.  Total senior secured net debt does not include the 7.625% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes, our unsecured indebtedness, including the Unsecured Notes and Exchangeable Senior Notes, or the securitization obligations.  EBITDA calculated on a Pro Forma Basis, as defined in the Senior Secured Credit Agreement, includes adjustments to Operating EBITDA for retention and disposition costs, non-cash charges and incremental securitization interest costs, as well as pro forma cost savings for restructuring initiatives, the pro forma effect of business optimization initiatives and the pro forma effect of acquisitions and new franchisees, in each case calculated as of the beginning of the twelve-month period.  The Company was in compliance with the senior secured leverage ratio covenant at December 31, 2021 with a ratio of negative 0.29 to 1.00.

A reconciliation of net income attributable to Realogy Group to Operating EBITDA and EBITDA calculated on a Pro Forma Basis, as those terms are defined in the Senior Secured Credit Agreement, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 is set forth in the following table:

Net income attributable to Realogy consists of: (i) income of $33 million for the first quarter of 2021, (ii) income of $149 million for the second quarter of 2021, (iii) income of $114 million for the third quarter of 2021 and (iv) income of $47 million for the fourth quarter of 2021.

(b)

Operating EBITDA consists of: (i) $162 million for the first quarter of 2021, (ii) $310 million for the second quarter of 2021, (iii) $273 million for the third quarter of 2021 and (iv) $157 million for the fourth quarter of 2021.

(c)

Represents the twelve-month pro forma effect of business optimization initiatives.

(d)

Represents the elimination of non-cash expenses including $29 million of stock-based compensation expense less $5 million of other items, $3 million for the change in the allowance for doubtful accounts and notes reserves and $2 million of foreign exchange benefits for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021.

(e)

Represents the estimated impact of acquisitions and franchise sales activity, net of brokerages that exited our franchise system as if these changes had occurred on January 1, 2021.  Franchisee sales activity is comprised of new franchise agreements as well as growth through acquisitions and independent sales agent recruitment by existing franchisees with our assistance.  We have made a number of assumptions in calculating such estimates and there can be no assurance that we would have generated the projected levels of Operating EBITDA had we owned the acquired entities or entered into the franchise contracts as of January 1, 2021.

(f)

Incremental borrowing costs incurred as a result of the securitization facilities refinancing for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021.

(g)

Represents total borrowings under the senior secured credit facilities (including the Revolving Credit Facility) and Term Loan A Facility and borrowings secured by a first priority lien on our assets of $232 million plus $24 million of finance lease obligations less $539 million of readily available cash as of December 31, 2021.  Pursuant to the terms of our senior secured credit facilities, total senior secured net debt does not include our securitization obligations, 7.625% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes or unsecured indebtedness, including the Unsecured Notes and Exchangeable Senior Notes.

*

Our senior secured credit facilities include the facilities under our Amended and Restated Credit Agreement dated as of March 5, 2013, as amended from time to time (the “Senior Secured Credit Agreement”), and the Term Loan A Agreement dated as of October 23, 2015 (the “Term Loan A Agreement”), as amended from time to time.  Our Unsecured Notes include our 4.875% Senior Notes due 2023, 9.375% Senior Notes due 2027 (redeemed in full in February 2022) and 5.75% Senior Notes due 2029.  Exchangeable Senior Notes refers to our 0.25% Exchangeable Senior Notes due 2026.  7.625% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes refers to our 7.625% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2025 (redeemed in full in February 2022).

Table 9

Non-GAAP Definitions

Adjusted net income (loss) is defined by us as net income (loss) before mark-to-market interest rate swap adjustments, former parent legacy items, restructuring charges, the (gain) loss on the early extinguishment of debt, impairments, the tax effect of the foregoing adjustments.  The gross amounts for these items as well as the adjustment for income taxes are presented.

Operating EBITDA is defined by us as net income (loss) before depreciation and amortization, interest expense, net (other than relocation services interest for securitization assets and securitization obligations), income taxes, and other items that are not core to the operating activities of the Company such as restructuring charges, former parent legacy items, gains or losses on the early extinguishment of debt, impairments, gains or losses on discontinued operations and gains or losses on the sale of investments or other assets.  Operating EBITDA is our primary non-GAAP measure.

We present Operating EBITDA because we believe it is useful as a supplemental measure in evaluating the performance of our operating businesses and provides greater transparency into our results of operations.  Our management, including our chief operating decision maker, uses Operating EBITDA as a factor in evaluating the performance of our business.  Operating EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income or other statement of operations data prepared in accordance with GAAP.

We believe Operating EBITDA facilitates company-to-company operating performance comparisons by backing out potential differences caused by variations in capital structures (affecting net interest expense), taxation, the age and book depreciation of facilities (affecting relative depreciation expense) and the amortization of intangibles, as well as other items that are not core to the operating activities of the Company such as restructuring charges, gains or losses on the early extinguishment of debt, former parent legacy items, impairments, gains or losses on discontinued operations and gains or losses on the sale of investments or other assets, which may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to operating performance.  We further believe that Operating EBITDA is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in their evaluation of companies, many of which present an Operating EBITDA measure when reporting their results.

Operating EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider Operating EBITDA either in isolation or as a substitute for analyzing our results as reported under GAAP.  Some of these limitations are:

  • this measure does not reflect changes in, or cash required for, our working capital needs;

  • this measure does not reflect our interest expense (except for interest related to our securitization obligations), or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt;

  • this measure does not reflect our income tax expense or the cash requirements to pay our taxes;

  • this measure does not reflect historical cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;

  • although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often require replacement in the future, and this measure does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements; and

  • other companies may calculate this measure differently so they may not be comparable.

Free Cash Flow is defined as net income (loss) attributable to Realogy before income tax expense (benefit), net of payments, interest expense, net, cash interest payments, depreciation and amortization, capital expenditures, restructuring costs and former parent legacy costs (benefits), net of payments, impairments, (gain) loss on the early extinguishment of debt, working capital adjustments and relocation receivables (assets), net of change in securitization obligations.  We use Free Cash Flow in our internal evaluation of operating effectiveness and decisions regarding the allocation of resources, as well as measuring the Company’s ability to generate cash.  Since Free Cash Flow can be viewed as both a performance measure and a cash flow measure, the Company has provided a reconciliation to both net income attributable to Realogy Holdings and net cash provided by operating activities.  Free Cash Flow is not defined by GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income (loss), net cash provided by (used in) operating, investing and financing activities or other financial data prepared in accordance with GAAP or as an indicator of the Company’s operating performance or liquidity.  Free Cash Flow may differ from similarly titled measures presented by other companies.
