BLUEGREEN VACATIONS CORPORATION



NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - UNAUDITED

 





1.  Organization and Basis of Presentation



Bluegreen Vacations Corporation is referred to in this report together with its consolidated subsidiaries as “Bluegreen Vacations”, “Bluegreen”, “the Company”, “we”, “us” and “our”. Bluegreen has prepared the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information.  Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. 

In our opinion, the financial information furnished herein reflects all adjustments consisting of normal recurring items necessary for a fair presentation of our financial position, results of operations, and cash flows for the interim periods reported in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported and, accordingly, actual results could differ from those estimates.  The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2018 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2018 or any other future interim or annual periods. The accompanying financial statements should be read in conjunction with our audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto as of and for the year ended December 31, 2017, included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 7, 2018. 



Initial Public Offering



The initial public offering of our common stock was closed on November 17, 2017.  In the initial public offering, we sold 3,736,723 shares of our common stock at the public offering price of $14.00 per share, less underwriting discounts and commissions. We received net proceeds of approximately $47.3 million from our sale of shares in the initial public offering.  In addition, BBX Capital Corporation (NYSE: BBX) (“BBX Capital”), our sole shareholder prior to the initial public offering, sold, as selling shareholder, 3,736,722 shares of our common stock in the initial public offering, including 974,797 shares sold on December 5, 2017 pursuant to the underwriters’ exercise of their option to purchase additional shares, at the public offering price of $14.00 per share, less underwriting discounts and commissions. We did not receive any proceeds from the sale of shares by BBX Capital. BBX Capital continues to own approximately 90% of our outstanding common stock. Our common stock began trading on the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) on November 17, 2017 under the symbol “BXG.”  In connection with the initial public offering, we effected a 709,977-for-1 stock split. All share and per share amounts herein reflect, or are calculated after giving effect to, such stock split.



Our Business



We are a leading vacation ownership company that markets and sells Vacation ownership interests (“VOIs”) and manages resorts in top leisure and urban destinations. Our resort network includes 43 Club Resorts (resorts in which owners in the Bluegreen Vacation Club (“Vacation Club”) have the right to use most of the units in connection with their VOI ownership) and 24 Club Associate Resorts (resorts in which owners in our Vacation Club have the right to use a limited number of units in connection with their VOI ownership). Our Club Resorts and Club Associate Resorts are primarily located in popular, high-volume, “drive-to” vacation locations, including Orlando, Las Vegas, Myrtle Beach and Charleston, among others. Through our points-based system, the approximately 212,000 owners in our Vacation Club have the flexibility to stay at units available at any of our resorts and have access to almost 11,000 other hotels and resorts through partnerships and exchange networks. We have a robust sales and marketing platform supported by exclusive marketing relationships with nationally-recognized consumer brands, such as Bass Pro and Choice Hotels. These marketing relationships drive sales within our core demographic, which is described below.



8


 

Prior to 2009, our vacation ownership business consisted solely of the sale of VOIs in resorts that we developed or acquired (“developed VOI sales”). While we continue to conduct such sales and development activities, we now also derive a significant portion of our revenue from our capital-light business model, which utilizes our expertise and infrastructure to generate both VOI sales and recurring revenue from third parties without the significant capital investment generally associated with the development and acquisition of resorts. Our capital-light business activities include sales of VOIs owned by third-party developers pursuant to which we are paid a commission (“fee-based sales”) and sales of VOIs that we purchase under just-in-time (“JIT”) arrangements with third-party developers or from secondary market sources. In addition, we provide resorts and resort developers with other fee-based services, including resort management, mortgage servicing, title services and construction management. We also offer financing to qualified VOI purchasers, which generates significant interest income.





Principles of Consolidation and Basis of Presentation



Our unaudited consolidated financial statements include the accounts of all of our wholly-owned subsidiaries, entities in which we hold a controlling financial interest, including Bluegreen/Big Cedar Vacations, LLC (a joint venture in which we are deemed to hold a controlling financial interest based on our 51% equity interest, our active role as the day-to-day manager of its activities, and our majority voting control of its management committee (“Bluegreen/Big Cedar Vacations”), and variable interest entities (sometimes referred to herein as “VIEs”) of which we are the primary beneficiary, as defined by Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Consolidations (Topic 810). We do not consolidate the statutory business trusts formed by us to issue trust preferred securities as these entities represent VIEs in which we are not the primary beneficiary. The statutory business trusts are accounted for under the equity method of accounting. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. 



2. Significant Accounting Policies



Reclassification of Prior Period Presentation



Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified for consistency with current period presentation.  These reclassifications had no effect on the reported results of operations, did not materially affect previously reported cash flows from operations, from investing activities, or from financing activities in the unaudited Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows, and had no effect on the unaudited Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income for any period.



Revenue Recognition



Sales of VOIs.  Revenue is recognized for sales of VOIs after the legal rescission period has expired on a properly executed VOI sales agreement and the collectibility of the note receivable from the buyer, if any, is reasonably assured.  Transfer of control of the VOI to the buyer occurs at the point of sale after the legal rescission period has expired as the risk and rewards associated with VOI ownership are transferred to the buyer at this time.  We record customer deposits from contracts within the legal rescission period in Restricted cash and Accrued liabilities and other in our Consolidated Balance Sheet as such amounts are refundable until the legal rescission period has expired.  In cases where construction and development of our developed resorts has not been substantially completed, we defer all of the revenues and associated expenses for the sales of VOIs until construction is substantially complete and the resort may be occupied.



For financed contracts, we have reduced the transaction price for expected loan losses which we consider to be variable consideration. Our estimates of the variable consideration are based on the results of our static pool analysis, which relies on historical payment data for similar VOI notes receivable. Our policies regarding the estimation of variable consideration on our notes receivable are discussed in further detail under “Notes Receivable” below.



Under timeshare accounting rules, rental operations, including accommodations provided through the use of our sampler program, are accounted for as incidental operations whereby incremental carrying costs in excess of incremental revenues are expensed as incurred. Conversely, incremental revenues in excess of incremental carrying costs are recorded as a reduction to the carrying cost of VOI inventory. Incremental carrying costs include costs that

9


 

have been incurred by us during the holding period of unsold VOIs, such as developer subsidies and maintenance fees on unsold VOI inventory. During each of the periods presented, our aggregate rental revenue and sampler revenue was less than the aggregate carrying cost of our VOI inventory.  Accordingly, we recorded such revenue as a reduction to Cost of other fee-based services in our Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income.



Fee-based sales commission revenue.  Revenue is recognized when a sales transaction with a VOI purchaser is consummated in accordance with the terms of the fee-based sales agreement with the third-party developer and the related consumer rescission period has expired.



Other fee-based services revenue and cost reimbursements.  Revenue in connection with our other fee-based services (which are described below) is recognized as follows:

·

Resort and club management revenue and related cost reimbursements are recognized as services are rendered.  These services provided to the resort homeowner associations (“HOAs”) are comprised of day-to-day services to operate the resort, including management services and certain accounting and administrative functions.  Management services provided to the Vacation Club include managing the reservation system and providing owner, billing and collection services.  Our management contracts are typically structured as cost-plus with an initial term of three years and automatic one-year renewals. We believe these services to be a series of distinct goods and services to be accounted for as a single performance obligation over time and recognize revenue as the customer receives the benefits of our services.  We allocate variable consideration to the distinct good or service within the series, such that revenue from management fees and cost reimbursements is recognized in each period as the uncertainty with respect to such variable consideration is resolved.

·

Resort Title fee revenue is recognized when escrow amounts are released and title documents are completed.

·

Rental revenues are recognized on a daily basis which is consistent with the period for which the customer benefits from such service. 

·

Mortgage servicing revenue is recognized over time as services are rendered. 



Our cost of other fee-based services consists of the costs associated with the various activities described above, as well as developer subsidies and maintenance fees on our unsold VOIs.



Interest Income.  We provide financing for a significant portion of sales of our owned VOIs.  We recognize interest income from financing VOI sales on the accrual method as earned based on the outstanding principal balance, interest rate and terms stated in each individual financing agreement.  See Notes Receivable below for further discussion of the policies applicable to our VOI notes receivable.

Notes receivable

Our notes receivable are carried at amortized cost less an allowance for loan losses. Interest income is suspended, and previously accrued but unpaid interest income is reversed, on all delinquent notes receivable when principal or interest payments are more than 90 days contractually past due and is not resumed until such loans are less than 90 days past due.  As of March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017, $15.8 million and $12.9 million, respectively, of our VOI notes receivable were more than 90 days past due, and accordingly, consistent with our policy, were not accruing interest income.  After 120 days, our VOI notes receivable are generally written off against the allowance for loan losses.



To the extent we determine that it is probable that a significant reversal of cumulative revenue recognized may occur, we record an estimate of variable consideration as a reduction to the transaction price of the sales of VOIs until the uncertainty associated with the variable consideration is resolved.  Our estimates of the variable consideration are based on the results of our static pool analysis, which relies on historical payment data for similar VOI notes receivable and tracks uncollectibles for each period’s sales over the entire life of the notes. We also consider whether historical economic conditions are comparable to then current economic conditions, as well as variations in underwriting standards. We review our estimate of variable consideration on at least a quarterly basis.  Loan origination costs are deferred and recognized over the life of the related notes receivable.

 

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements 



In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)” as subsequently amended (“ASU 2014-09”). ASU 2014-09 replaces numerous requirements in GAAP, including industry-specific requirements, and provides companies with a single revenue recognition model for recognizing revenue from contracts with customers.  The new standard specifies how and when to recognize revenue from contracts with customers by providing a principle-based framework and requires additional disclosures about the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers. We adopted the new guidance on January 1, 2018 using the full retrospective method. We restated financial information previously presented to reflect the full retrospective method of transition to ASU 2014-09. 



We have elected to use the following practical expedients as part of our implementation of ASU 2014-09: 



·

We have utilized the transaction price upon completion of the contract for certain contracts with customers as a practical expedient. 

·

We do not disclose the value of unsatisfied performance obligations for contracts with an original expected length of one year or less or unsatisfied performance obligations or unsatisfied promises to transfer a distinct good or service that forms a part of a single performance obligation recognized over time.  See above for further description of variable consideration identified in our contracts with customers.

·

We expense all marketing and sales costs as they are incurred.

11


 

·

In determining the transaction price for contracts with a customer, we exclude all taxes assessed by a government authority that are both imposed on and concurrent with a specified transaction and collected by us from a customer.



We do not believe that the use of these practical expedients materially impacted the unaudited consolidated financial statements and disclosures herein.



The following represents the impact of the adoption of ASU 2014-09 on our consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2017, December 31, 2016 and consolidated statement of income for the three months ended March 31, 2017 (in thousands, except per share data):

On March 7, 2018, we filed our 2017 Annual Report which included in Item 8 – Note 2 to the consolidated financial statements the expected impacts to recorded results of the retrospective adjustments to our financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016 due to the adoption of ASU 2014-09.  Subsequent to the March 7, 2018 filing date, we revised our calculation of the expected impact of the full retrospective adoption of this standard, and the amounts included in the above tables reflect these revisions.   As previously noted above, certain prior period amounts have been reclassified for consistency with current period presentation. 



In August 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update ASU 2016-15, “Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230)– Classifications of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments” (“ASU 2016-15”), which is intended to clarify the presentation of cash receipts and payments in specific situations. Further in November 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-18, “Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230)- Restricted Cash” (“ASU 2016-18”), which requires entities to show changes in total cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents in the statement of cash flows with a reconciliation to the related captions in the balance sheet. These standards became effective for us on January 1, 2018. We early adopted these standards effective December 31, 2017 as of and for the year then ended.  Our adoption of ASU 2016-15 and ASU 2016-18 did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements and is reflected in the unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements included herein.



In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-01, “Business Combinations – Clarifying the Definition of a Business”, which is intended to clarify the determination of whether a company has acquired or sold a business.  The definition of a business affects many areas of accounting, including acquisitions, disposals, goodwill and consolidations, and the standard will help entities determine whether transactions should be accounted for as acquisitions or disposals of assets or businesses.  The standard is expected to result in more acquisitions being accounted for as asset purchases instead of business combinations.  The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017.  We adopted this standard on January 1, 2018 using the prospective transition method.  The adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

In March 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-05 Amendments to SEC Paragraphs Pursuant to SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118. ASU 2018-05 formally amended ASC Topic 740, Income Taxes (“ASC 740”) for the guidance previously provided by SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118 (“SAB 118”), which provides guidance for the application of ASC 740 in the reporting period in which the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act”)

14


 

was signed into law. Our adoption of ASU 2018-05 as of March 31, 2018 had no impact on our accounting for income taxes for the three months ended March 31, 2018. Additional information regarding the accounting for income taxes for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is contained in Note 8, Income Taxes.



Future Adoption of Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements 



In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842)” (“ASU 2016-02”).  This update will require assets and liabilities to be recognized on the balance sheet of a lessee for the rights and obligations created by leases of assets with terms of more than 12 months.  For income statement purposes, the update retained a dual model, requiring leases to be classified as either operating or finance based on largely similar criteria to those applied in current lease accounting, but without explicit bright lines.  ASU 2016-02 also requires extensive quantitative and qualitative disclosures, including significant judgments made by management, to provide greater insight into the extent of revenue and expense both recognized and expected to be recognized from existing leases.  This standard will be effective for us on January 1, 2019.  Early adoption is permitted.  We are currently evaluating the impact that ASU 2016-02 may have on our consolidated financial statements. 



In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, “Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326)” (“ASU 2016-13”), which introduces an approach based on expected losses to estimate credit losses on certain types of financial instruments. ASU 2016-13 also expands the disclosure requirements regarding an entity’s assumptions, models, and methods for estimating the allowance for loan losses. Further, public entities will be required to disclose the amortized cost balance for each class of financial asset by credit quality indicator, disaggregated by the year of origination (i.e., by vintage year). This standard will be effective for us on January 1, 2020. Early adoption is permitted beginning on January 1, 2019. We are currently evaluating the impact that ASU 2016-13 may have on our consolidated financial statements.

Notes receivable secured by homesites were originated through a business, substantially all the assets of which were sold by us in 2012.    



The weighted-average interest rate on our notes receivable was 15.3% at both March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017.  All of our VOI loans bear interest at fixed rates.  The weighted-average interest rate charged on our notes receivable secured by VOIs was 15.3% at both March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017. 





Credit Quality for Financed Receivables and the Allowance for Loan Losses

We hold large amounts of homogeneous VOI notes receivable and assess uncollectibility based on pools of receivables.  In estimating variable considerations, management does not use a single primary indicator of credit quality but instead evaluates our VOI notes receivable based upon a static pool analysis that incorporates the aging of the respective receivables, default trends and prepayment rates by origination year, as well as the FICO scores of the borrowers.

These VOI notes receivable have been reflected in the allowance for loan losses.

 

4.  Variable Interest Entities



We sell VOI notes receivable through special purpose finance entities. These transactions are generally structured as non-recourse to us and are designed to provide liquidity for us and to transfer the economic risks and benefits of the notes receivable to third parties. In a securitization, various classes of debt securities are issued by the special purpose finance entities that are generally collateralized by a single tranche of transferred assets, which consist of VOI notes receivable. We service the securitized notes receivable for a fee pursuant to servicing agreements negotiated with third parties based on market conditions at the time of the securitization.



In these securitizations, we generally retain a portion of the securities and continue to service the securitized notes receivable. Under these arrangements, the cash payments received from obligors on the receivables sold are generally applied monthly to pay fees to service providers, make interest and principal payments to investors, and fund required reserves, if any, with the remaining balance of such cash retained by us; however, to the extent the portfolio of receivables fails to satisfy specified performance criteria (as may occur due to, among other things, an increase in default rates or credit loss severity) or other trigger events occur, the funds received from obligors are required to be distributed on an accelerated basis to investors. Depending on the circumstances and the transaction, the application of the accelerated payment formula may be permanent or temporary until the trigger event is cured. As of March 31, 2018, we were in compliance with all material terms under our securitization transactions, and no trigger events had occurred.



In accordance with applicable accounting guidance for the consolidation of VIEs, we analyze our variable interests, which may consist of loans, servicing rights, guarantees, and equity investments, to determine if an entity in which we have a variable interest is a VIE. The analysis includes a review of both quantitative and qualitative factors. We base our quantitative analysis on the forecasted cash flows of the entity.  We base our qualitative analysis on the structure of the entity, including our decision-making ability and authority with respect to the entity, and relevant financial agreements. We also use a  qualitative analysis to determine if we must consolidate a VIE as the primary beneficiary. In accordance with applicable accounting guidance, we have determined these securitization entities to be VIEs of which we are the primary beneficiary and, therefore, we consolidate the entities into our financial statements.



Under the terms of certain of our VOI note sales, we have the right to repurchase or substitute a limited amount of defaulted notes for new notes at the outstanding principal balance plus accrued interest.  Voluntary repurchases and substitutions by us of defaulted notes for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017 were $1.7 million and $3.3 million, respectively. Our maximum exposure to loss relating to our non-recourse securitization entities is the difference between the outstanding VOI notes receivable and the notes payable, plus cash reserves and any additional residual interest in future cash flows from collateral.

Except as described below, there were no new debt issuances or significant changes related to the above listed facilities during 2018. 



Liberty Bank Facility.   Since 2008, we have maintained a revolving VOI notes receivable hypothecation facility (the “Liberty Bank Facility”) with Liberty Bank which provides for advances on eligible receivables pledged under the Liberty Bank Facility, subject to specified terms and conditions, during a revolving credit period. On March 12, 2018, we amended and restated the Liberty Bank Facility to extend the revolving credit period from March 2018 to March 2020, extend the maturity date from November 2020 until March 2023, and amend the interest rate on borrowings as described below. Subject to its terms and conditions, the Liberty Bank Facility provides for advances of (i) 85% of the unpaid principal balance of Qualified Timeshare Loans assigned to agent, and (ii) 60% of the unpaid principal balance of Non-Conforming Timeshare Loans assigned to agent, during the revolving credit period of the facility. Maximum permitted outstanding borrowings under the Liberty Bank Facility are $50.0 million, subject to the terms of the facility. Through March 31, 2018, borrowings under the Liberty Bank Facility bore interest at the Wall Street Journal (“WSJ”) Prime Rate plus 0.50% per annum, subject to a 4.00% floor.  Pursuant to the March 2018 amendment to the Liberty Bank Facility, effective April 1, 2018, all borrowings outstanding under the facility bear interest at an annual rate equal to the WSJ Prime Rate, subject to a 4.00% floor. Principal and interest due under the Liberty Bank Facility are paid as cash is collected on the pledged receivables, with the remaining balance being due upon maturity.

Quorum Purchase Facility.   We and Bluegreen/Big Cedar Vacations have a VOI notes receivable purchase facility (the “Quorum Purchase Facility”) with Quorum Federal Credit Union (“Quorum”), pursuant to which Quorum has

agreed to purchase eligible VOI notes receivable in an amount of up to an aggregate $50.0 million purchase price, subject to certain conditions precedent and other terms of the facility. On April 6, 2018, the Quorum Purchase Facility was amended to extend the revolving purchase period from June 30, 2018 to June 30, 2020, and agreed to a fixed interest rate of 4.95% per annum on advances made through September 30, 2018. The interest rate on advances made after September 30, 2018 will be set at the time of funding based on rates mutually agreed upon by all parties. The amendment also reduced the loan purchase fee applicable to future advances from 0.50% to 0.25% and extended the maturity of the Quorum Purchase Facility from December 2030 to December 2032.    Of the amounts outstanding under the Quorum Purchase Facility at March 31, 2018, $2.9 million accrues interest at a rate per annum of 6.9%, $2.7 million accrues interest at a rate per annum of 5.5%, $6.9 million accrues interest at a rate per annum of 4.95%, $3.2 million accrues interest at a rate per annum of 5.0%, and $6.0 million accrues interest at a rate per annum of 4.75%. The Quorum Purchase Facility provides for an 85% advance rate on eligible receivables sold under the facility, however, Quorum can modify this advance rate on future purchases subject to the terms and conditions of the Quorum Purchase Facility. Eligibility requirements for VOI notes receivable sold include, among others, that the obligors under the VOI notes receivable sold be members of Quorum at the time of the note sale. Subject to performance of the collateral, we or Bluegreen/Big Cedar Vacations, as applicable, will receive any excess cash flows generated by the VOI notes receivable transferred to Quorum under the facility (excess meaning after payments of customary fees, interest and principal under the facility) on a pro-rata basis as borrowers make payments on their VOI notes receivable. While ownership of the VOI notes receivable included in the Quorum Purchase Facility is transferred and sold for legal purposes, the transfer of these VOI notes receivable is accounted for as a secured borrowing for financial reporting purposes. The facility is nonrecourse.



See Note 8 to our Consolidated Financial Statements included in the 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K for additional information regarding our other receivable-backed notes payable facilities listed above. 



Junior Subordinated Debentures



We have formed statutory business trusts (collectively, the "Trusts"), each of which issued trust preferred securities as part of a larger pooled trust securities offering which was not registered under the Securities Act of 1933 and invested the proceeds thereof in its junior subordinated debentures. The Trusts are variable interest entities in which we are not the primary beneficiary as defined by ASC 810. Accordingly, we do not consolidate the operations of the Trusts; instead, our beneficial interests in the Trusts are accounted for under the equity method of accounting.  Our maximum exposure to loss as a result of our involvement with the Trusts is limited to the carrying amount of our equity method investment. Distributions on the trust preferred securities are cumulative and based upon the liquidation value of the trust preferred security. The trust preferred securities are subject to mandatory redemption, in whole or in part, upon repayment of the junior subordinated debentures at maturity or their earlier redemption. The junior subordinated debentures are redeemable in whole or in part at our option at any time.  In addition, we made an initial equity contribution to each Trust in exchange for its common securities, all of which are owned by us, and those proceeds were also used by the applicable Trust to purchase an identical amount of junior subordinated debentures from us. The terms of each Trust’s common securities are nearly identical to the trust preferred securities.



Interest on the junior subordinated debentures and distributions on the trust preferred securities are payable quarterly in arrears at the same interest rate.
