In March 2022, the FASB issued ASU 2022-02, “Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326) – Troubled Debt Restructurings and Vintage Disclosures” (“ASU-2022-02”), which eliminates the recognition and measurement guidance applicable to troubled debt restructurings for creditors and enhances disclosure requirements with respect to loan modifications for borrowers experiencing financial difficulty. ASU 2022-02 also requires disclosure of current-period gross write-offs by year of origination to be presented in the vintage disclosures for VOI notes receivable. This update is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, including interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. The Company adopted ASU 2022-02 as of March 31, 2023.  The adoption did not have a material effect on its financial statements or disclosures other than the disclosure changes related to vintage disclosures for VOI notes receivable.

Accounting Standards Not Yet Adopted Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted

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, 2023:

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 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 the Company’s VOI notes receivable from its borrowers are not indexed to LIBOR, as of March 31, 2023, the Company had $170.9 million of LIBOR indexed junior subordinated debentures and $26.9 million of LIBOR indexed receivable-backed notes payable. The Company expects that replacements for LIBOR will be determined as the Company renews or amends its existing debt instruments. The Company will continue to evaluate the adoption of the optional expedients and exceptions provided as circumstances evolve.
