Any statements that refer to expectations or other characterizations of future events, circumstances or results are forward-looking statements.

The following include some, but not all, of the factors that could affect our future results and cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements: adverse developments or the absence of sustained improvement in the U.S. residential real estate markets, either regionally or nationally, which could include, but are not limited to factors that could impact homesale transaction volume, such as: continued or accelerated declines in inventory or a decline in the number of home sales, increases in mortgage rates or inflation or tightened mortgage standards, changes in consumer preferences, including weakening in the consumer trends that have benefited us since the second half of 2020, reductions in housing affordability, and stagnant or declining home prices; adverse developments or the absence of sustained improvement in macroeconomic conditions (such as business, economic or political conditions) on a global, domestic or local basis, which could include, but are not limited to economic contraction in the U.S. economy, including the impact of recessions, slow economic growth, or a deterioration in other economic factors (including potential consumer, business or governmental defaults or delinquencies due to the COVID-19 crisis or otherwise) and fiscal and monetary policies of the federal government and its agencies, particularly those that may result in unfavorable changes to the interest rate environment and tax reform; The impact of evolving competitive and consumer dynamics, which could include, but are not limited to: continued erosion of the broker share of the commission income generated by homesale transactions and the continued rise of the sale agent's share of such commissions, our ability to compete against non-traditional competitors, including but not limited to, iBuying and home swap business models and virtual brokerages, 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 and worsening economic consequences of the crisis 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, compete for real estate services business, develop or procure products, services and technology that support our strategic initiatives, realize the expected benefits from our non-exclusive mortgage origination joint venture, our RealSure joint venture, our planned title underwriting joint venture, or from other existing or future strategic partnerships, 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, complete or integrate acquisitions and joint ventures into our existing operations, or to complete or effectively manage divestitures or other corporate transactions; our geographic and high-end market concentration; the operating results of affiliated franchisees; continued consolidation among our top 250 franchisees; difficulties in the business or changes in the licensing strategy of, or complications in our relationships with, the owners of the two brands we do not own; the loss of our largest real estate benefit program client or multiple significant relocation clients; continued reductions in refinancing activity or corporate relocations or relocation benefits; the failure of third-party vendors or partners to perform as expected or our failure to adequately monitor such third-parties; interruptions in information technology used to operate our business and maintain our competitiveness; increases in mortgage rates, tightened mortgage underwriting standards or reductions in refinancing activity; actions taken by listing aggregators to monetize their concentration and market power; industry structure changes (as a result of new laws, regulations, consent decrees, administrative policies, litigation or other legal action, the rules of multiple listing services or NAR, or otherwise) that disrupt the functioning of the residential real estate market; adverse effects on our operations or liquidity due to our indebtedness, including with respect to: interest obligations and the negative covenant restrictions contained in our debt agreements, our ability to fund our operations, invest in our business or pursue growth opportunities, react to changes in the economy or our industry, or incur additional borrowings under our existing facilities, an event of default under our debt agreements, or 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 counterparty risk with respect to the exchangeable note hedge transactions; 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) 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, (3) the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act ("RESPA") or other federal or state consumer protection or similar laws, and (4) antitrust laws and regulations; cybersecurity incidents; impairment of our goodwill and other long-lived assets; and severe weather events or natural disasters, including increasing severity or frequency of such events due to climate change or otherwise, or other catastrophic events, including public health crises, such as pandemics and epidemics.

NON-GAAP RECONCILIATION
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 and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020:

Restructuring charges incurred for the three months ended September 30, 2021 include $1 million at Realogy Franchise Group, $2 million at Realogy Brokerage Group and $1 million at Corporate and Other.  Restructuring charges incurred for the three months ended September 30, 2020 include $4 million at Realogy Franchise Group, $11 million at Realogy Brokerage Group and $2 million at Corporate and Other.

(b)

Non-cash impairments for the three months ended September 30, 2021 primarily relate to software impairments.  Non-cash impairments for the three months ended September 30, 2020 include $59 million of impairment charges during the three months ended September 30, 2020 (while Cartus Relocation Services was held for sale) to reduce the net assets to the estimated proceeds and other asset impairments of $11 million primarily related to lease asset impairments.

(c) 

Former parent legacy items and Loss on the early extinguishment of debt are recorded in Corporate and Other.

(d) 

Includes the elimination of transactions between segments, which consists of intercompany royalties and marketing fees paid by Realogy Brokerage Group of $111 million and $97 million during the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

(e) 

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 September 30, 2021.  Excluding the mortgage origination joint venture from Operating EBITDA, title agency and title insurance underwriter represented approximately 60% and 40%, respectively of Operating EBITDA for the three-months ended September 30, 2021.  The year-over-year decline in Operating EBITDA contribution from the mortgage origination joint venture, from $11 million for the three-months ended September 30, 2021 compared to $51 million for the three-months ended September 30, 2020, was primarily driven by the impact of mark-to-market adjustments on the mortgage loan pipeline, as well as gain-on-sale margin compression and a decline in refinance volumes, partially offset by strong purchase volume growth.

(f)

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 $111 million and $97 million during the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

NON-GAAP RECONCILIATION - SENIOR SECURED LEVERAGE RATIO
FOR THE FOUR-QUARTER PERIOD ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 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 September 30, 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 four quarters 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 trailing four-quarter period.  The Company was in compliance with the senior secured leverage ratio covenant at September 30, 2021 with a ratio of negative 0.27 to 1.00.

A reconciliation of net (loss) 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 four-quarter period ended September 30, 2021 is set forth in the following table:

(b)

Operating EBITDA consists of: (i) $206 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, (ii) $162 million for the first quarter of 2021, (iii) $310 million for the second quarter of 2021 and (iv) $273 million for the third quarter of 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 October 1, 2020.  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 October 1, 2020.

(f) 

Incremental borrowing costs incurred as a result of the securitization facilities refinancing for the twelve months ended September 30, 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 $234 million plus $26 million of finance lease obligations less $532 million of readily available cash as of September 30, 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 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.

See Table 8a for a reconciliation of Net (loss) income attributable to Realogy Group to EBITDA as defined by the Senior Secured Credit Agreement.

(b)

Net Debt Leverage Ratio is substantially similar to Consolidated Leverage Ratio (as defined under the indentures governing the 9.375% Notes and 7.625% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes), except that when the Consolidated Leverage Ratio is measured at March 31 of any given year, the calculation includes a positive $200 million seasonality adjustment to cash and cash equivalents. 


 

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.
