Marriott International Outlines Three Year Growth Plan at Security Analyst Meeting
Strong Fee and Free Cash Flow Growth Could Lead to 15% to 20% Adjusted Diluted EPS Growth Over Three-Year Period Through 2025
In the presentation, the company will reiterate its 2023 outlook given in August and introduce two-year compounded annual growth rates (CAGRs) from 2023 to 2025 for certain key performance metrics. Marriott will outline its plan to add 230,000 to 270,000 net rooms over three years, expanding its industry-leading global portfolio to nearly 1.8 million rooms by year-end 2025. This represents a three-year CAGR for net rooms of 5.0 to 5.5 percent. In addition, the company's model assumes global RevPAR growth at a two-year CAGR of 3 to 6 percent from 2023 to 2025, after rising 12 to 14 percent this year.
"With global travel poised for continued robust growth, our strategy is to deliver the best brands and experiences for consumers, to attract and retain the most loyal guests and to be in more places around the world. These are our three paths to win," said
Given the assumptions in its three-year model, the company could produce the following results:
- Total gross fee revenues could rise 16 to 18 percent year-over-year in 2023 and at a 6.5 to 9.5 percent two-year CAGR to reach
$5.4to $5.8 billionin 2025.
- Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (adjusted EBITDA) could increase 18 to 21 percent year-over-year in 2023 and at a 7 to 10 percent two-year CAGR to reach
$5.2to $5.7 billionin 2025.
- Adjusted diluted earnings per share (adjusted diluted EPS) could rise 25 to 29 percent year-over-year in 2023 and at a 10 to 15 percent two-year CAGR to reach
$10.10to $11.45in 2025.
- Shareholders could see
$1.9to $2.0 billionin dividends, assuming a 25 percent payout ratio, and $9.8to $11.6 billionin share repurchases, for total shareholder returns of $11.7to $13.6 billionover the three-year period through 2025.
"Our asset-light and resilient business model drives powerful results," said
