Future Adoption of Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

The FASB has issued the following accounting pronouncement and guidance relevant to the Company’s operations which had not yet been adopted as of March 31, 2021:

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 the 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 Bluegreen’s VOIs notes receivable from its borrowers are not indexed to LIBOR, as of March 31, 2021 the Company had $171.1 million of LIBOR indexed junior subordinated debentures, $66.7 million of LIBOR indexed receivable-backed notes payable and lines of credit, and $108.1 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. The Company has not yet adopted this standard and is evaluating the potential impact that the eventual replacement of the LIBOR benchmark interest rate could have on its results of operations, liquidity and consolidated financial statements.
