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 211,000 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 Choice Hotels. These marketing relationships drive sales within our core demographic, which is described below.
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.
