NEW YORK (Nov. 1, 2018) – Weight Watchers International, Inc. (NASDAQ: WTW) (“WW”) today announced its results for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 and updated its full year fiscal 2018 earnings guidance.

“Reflecting continued strong consumer response to WW FreestyleTM, we ended the quarter with 4.2 million subscribers, a record for the third quarter, and up 25% year-over-year,” said Mindy Grossman, the Company’s President and CEO. “As we expand our mission from being the global leader in weight management to becoming the world’s partner in wellness, we marked a major milestone with our rebranding as WW. We are also enhancing our digital experience in ways that are meaningful to our members’ lives, including through the launch of WellnessWinsTM, our first loyalty and rewards program.

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. The Company presents in the attachments to this release the non-GAAP financial measure earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation (“EBITDAS”). 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 non-GAAP 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.
