Amendment Description Bluegreen Vacations Corporation (the "Company") is filing this Amendment No. 1 (this "Amendment") to its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019 (the "2019 Form 10-K"), as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on March 12, 2020, solely to provide the remaining information required by Items 10-14 of Part III of Form 10-K. Except as it relates to the provision of such information, this Amendment does not reflect subsequent events occurring after the original filing date of the 2019 Form 10-K or modify or update in any way disclosures made in the 2019 Form 10-K. For information regarding business and other developments, including the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, see the Company's press release issued on March 30, 2020, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K furnished to the SEC on March 31, 2020. Pursuant to Rule 12b-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), this Amendment also contains new certifications of the Company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer pursuant to Section 302 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. Because no financial statements are included in this Amendment and this Amendment does not contain or amend any disclosure with respect to Items 307 or 308 of Regulation S-K promulgated by the SEC under the Exchange Act, paragraphs 3, 4 and 5 of the Section 302 certifications have been omitted. In addition, because no financial statements are included in this Amendment, new certifications of the Company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer pursuant to Section 906 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 are not required to be included with this Amendment.
