BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Bluegreen Vacations Holding Corporation (NYSE: BVH) (OTCQX: BVHBB) (the “Company” or “Bluegreen”) announced today the amendment and extension of the vacation ownership interest (“VOI”) notes receivable purchase facility with KeyBank National Association (“KeyBank”), Bank of America, N.A. (“Bank of America”), Citizens Bank (“Citizens”), DZ Bank AG Deutsche Zentral-Genossenschaftsbank, Frankfurt AM Main (“DZ”), and Truist Bank (“Truist”) as the funding agents, and KeyBank and Bank of America serving as Lead Arranger and Co-Lead Arranger, respectively.
The amended and restated purchase facility extended the advance period from December 2022 to September 2025 and increased the maximum outstanding financings from $80.0 million to up to $250.0 million. The amended and restated facility provides for an advance rate of up to 88% with respect to VOI receivables securing amounts financed (from the 80% advance rate prior to the amendment and restatement). Borrowings under the facility bear interest until the expiration of the revolving advance period at a rate equal to the one-month Term SOFR rate plus 1.75% (a decrease from one-month LIBOR or commercial paper rate plus 2.25% prior to the amendment and restatement) and thereafter at a rate equal to the one-month Term SOFR rate plus 2.75% (a decrease from one-month LIBOR or commercial paper rate plus 3.25% prior to the amendment and restatement). As of the date of this release, there were no outstanding borrowings under the facility.
"This expansion and extension supports our strategy of enhancing our liquidity and operating flexibility while lowering our cost of funding," said Ray Lopez, Bluegreen’s Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer, Chief Financial Officer & Treasurer. "We are pleased to continue our longstanding relationships with Key Bank and DZ, and to expand our relationships with Bank of America, Citizens, and Truist as well."
