Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements Recently Adopted Accounting Standards

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, “Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326)” (“ASU 2016-13”), which introduces an approach of estimating credit losses on certain types of financial instruments based on expected losses. ASU 2016-13 also expands the disclosure requirements regarding an entity’s assumptions, models, and methods for estimating the allowance for loan losses. Further, the standard requires that public entities 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 became effective for us on January 1, 2020. We adopted this standard on January 1, 2020 using a modified retrospective method, which did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements and related disclosures and no cumulative adjustment was recorded primarily as our VOI notes receivable are recorded net of an allowance that is calculated in accordance with ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. We also elected the practical expedient to not measure an allowance for credit losses for accrued interest receivables, as our 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 not resumed until such loans are less than 90 days past due.

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-15, “Intangibles – Goodwill and Other – Internal–Use Software (Subtopic 350-40)” (“ASU 2018-15”), which requires a customer in a cloud computing arrangement that is a service contract (“CCA”) to follow internal-use software guidance in ASC 350-40 to determine which implementation costs to capitalize as assets or expense as incurred. ASU 2018-15 also requires companies to present implementation costs related to a CCA in the same financial statement line items as the CCA service fees. We adopted this standard on January 1, 2020 and are applying the transition guidance as of the date of adoption prospectively, under the current period adjustment method. Upon adoption of the standard, we reclassified $1.9 million of capitalized implementation costs related to a CCA that was in the implementation phase as of January 1, 2020 from property and equipment to prepaid expenses.

The FASB has issued the following accounting pronouncement and guidance relevant to our operations which had not yet been adopted as of March 31, 2020:

In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, “Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effect of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting” (“ASU 2020-04”), which provides relief for companies preparing for discontinuation of LIBOR in response to the Financial Conduct Authority (the regulatory authority over LIBOR) plan for a phase out of regulatory oversight of LIBOR interest rate indices after 2021 to allow for an orderly transition to an alternate reference rate. The Alternative Reference Rates Committee (“ARRC”) has proposed that the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (“SOFR”) is the rate that represents best practice as the alternative to LIBOR for promissory notes or other contracts that are currently indexed to LIBOR. The ARRC has proposed a market transition plan to SOFR from LIBOR and organizations are currently working on transition plans as it relates to derivatives and cash markets exposed to LIBOR. Although our VOIs notes receivable from our borrowers are not indexed to LIBOR, we currently have $110.8 million of LIBOR indexed junior subordinated debentures, $87.7 million of LIBOR indexed receivable-backed notes payable and lines of credit, and $225.2 million of LIBOR indexed lines of credit and notes payable (which are not receivable-backed) that mature after 2021. Companies can apply ASU 2020-04 immediately. However, the guidance will only be available for a limited time, generally through December 31, 2022. We are evaluating the potential impact that the eventual replacement of the LIBOR benchmark interest rate could have on our results of operations, liquidity and consolidated financial statements.
