|Segment Reporting [Abstract]|
14. Segment Reporting
Operating segments are defined as components of an enterprise about which separate financial information is available that is regularly reviewed by the chief operating decision maker in assessing performance and deciding how to allocate resources. Reportable segments consist of one or more operating segments with similar economic characteristics, products and services, production processes, type of customer, distribution system or regulatory environment.
The information provided for segment reporting is obtained from internal reports utilized by management. The presentation and allocation of results of operations may not reflect the actual economic costs of the segments as standalone businesses. Due to the nature of our business, assets are not allocated to a particular segment, and therefore management does not evaluate the balance sheet by segment. If a different basis of allocation were utilized, the relative contributions of the segments might differ but the relative trends in the segments’ operating results would, in management’s view, likely not be impacted.
We report our results of operations through two reportable segments: (i) Sales of VOIs and financing; (ii) resort operations and club management.
Our sales of VOIs and financing segment includes our marketing and sales activities related to the VOIs that we own, our sale of VOIs through fee-for-service arrangements with third-party developers, our consumer financing activities in connection with sales of VOIs that we own, and our title services operations through a wholly-owned subsidiary.
Our resort operations and club management includes our provision of management services activities for our Vacation Club and for a majority of the homeowners associations (“HOAs”) of the resorts within our Vacation Club. In connection with those services, we also provide club reservation services, services to owners and billing and collections services to our Vacation Club and certain HOAs. Additionally, we generate revenue within our resort operations and club management segment from our Traveler Plus program, food and beverage and other retail operations, our rental services activities, and our management of construction activities for certain of our fee-based clients.
