1. Organization and Basis of Financial Statement Presentation
Bluegreen Vacations Holding Corporation (formerly BBX Capital Corporation) and its subsidiaries (the “Company” “we,” “us,” or “our”) is a Florida-based holding company. Bluegreen Vacations Holding Corporation as a standalone entity without its subsidiaries is sometimes referred to herein as “BVH”. BVH has prepared the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements.
In the Company’s opinion, the financial information furnished herein reflects all adjustments consisting of normal recurring items necessary for a fair presentation of its financial position, results of operations, and cash flows for the interim periods reported in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported and, accordingly, actual results could differ from those estimates. Due to the unprecedented impact and uncertainties related to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (“COVID-19”) pandemic, including its potential future impact and other factors, the results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2021 or any other future interim or annual periods. The accompanying financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto as of and for the year ended December 31, 2020, included in its Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 1, 2021 (the “2020 Annual Report on Form 10-K”).
On September 30, 2020, BVH completed its spin-off of BBX Capital, Inc. (“BBX Capital”), the former wholly owned subsidiary of BVH which became a separate public company as a result of the spin-off and holds all of BVH’s historical business and investments other than BVH’s investment in Bluegreen Vacations Corporation (“Bluegreen”), a leading vacation ownership company that markets and sells vacation ownership interests (“VOIs”) and manages resorts in popular leisure and urban destinations. As a result of the spin-off the Company is a “pure play” holding company whose sole investment is its ownership of Bluegreen.
Prior to May 5, 2021, BVH beneficially owned approximately 93% of Bluegreen’s outstanding common stock. On May 5, 2021, BVH acquired all of the approximately 7% of the outstanding shares of Bluegreen’s common stock not previously beneficially owned by BVH through a statutory short-form merger under Florida law. In connection with the merger, Bluegreen’s shareholders (other than BVH) are entitled to receive 0.51 shares of BVH’s Class A Common Stock for each share of Bluegreen’s common stock that they held at the effective time of the merger. Based on the number of shares of Bluegreen’s common stock outstanding prior to the effective time of the merger, it is estimated that BVH will issue approximately 2,664,000 shares of its Class A Common Stock in connection with the merger. As a result of the completion of the merger, Bluegreen has become a wholly owned subsidiary of BVH and Bluegreen’s common stock is no longer publicly traded.
Bluegreen is a leading vacation ownership company that markets and sells vacation ownership interests (“VOIs”) and manages resorts in popular leisure and urban destinations. Bluegreen’s resorts are primarily located in high-volume, “drive-to” vacation locations, including Orlando, Las Vegas, Myrtle Beach, Charleston and New Orleans, among others. The resorts in which Bluegreen markets, sells, and manages VOIs were either developed or acquired by Bluegreen, or were developed and are owned by third parties. Bluegreen earns fees for providing sales and marketing services to third party developers. Bluegreen also earns fees for providing management services to the Vacation Club and homeowners’ associations (“HOAs”), mortgage servicing, VOI title services, reservation services, and construction design and development services. In addition, Bluegreen provides financing to qualified VOI purchasers, which generates significant interest income.
Basis of Financial Statement Presentation
The unaudited consolidated financial statements include the accounts of BVH’s wholly owned subsidiaries, other entities in which BVH or its consolidated subsidiaries hold controlling financial interests, and any VIEs in which BVH or one of its consolidated subsidiaries is deemed the primary beneficiary of the VIE. All significant inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
Continued Impact of COVID-19 on our Business
The Company continues to be adversely affected by the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. In response to the pandemic, Bluegreen temporarily closed all of its VOI sales centers and marketing operations in the last week of March 2020 and took other measures with a goal of mitigating the impact of the pandemic and positioning Bluegreen to navigate the pandemic successfully. By March 31, 2021, Bluegreen was operating marketing kiosks at 105 Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s stores, including 7 new Cabela’s locations opened during the three months ended March 31, 2021; had reactivated the Choice Hotels call transfer program; had reopened all of its resorts; and reopened all but two of its VOI sales centers. Further, resort occupancy rates were approximately 70% at resorts with sales centers for the first quarter of 2021 compared to 66% in the first quarter of 2020 and vacation packages sold were 15% higher in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020. Although this trend of reduced travel for vacation packages sold prior to the COVID-19 pandemic still exists, Bluegreen is encouraged by the eagerness of its owners to travel to its resorts and for the first quarter of 2021 Bluegreen sold 49,000 vacation packages compared to 43,000 in the first quarter of 2020.
Use of Estimates
The Company’s financial statements are prepared in conformity with GAAP, which requires it to make estimates based on assumptions about current and, for some estimates, future economic and market conditions which affect reported amounts and related disclosures in its financial statements. Although the Company’s current estimates contemplate current and expected future conditions, as applicable, actual conditions could differ from its expectations, which could materially affect its results of operations and financial position. In particular, a number of estimates have been and will continue to be affected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The severity, magnitude and duration, as well as the economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, are uncertain, rapidly changing and difficult to predict. As a result, accounting estimates and assumptions may change over time in response to COVID-19. Such changes could result in, among other adjustments, future impairments of intangibles and long-lived assets, incremental credit losses on Bluegreen’s VOI notes receivable, a decrease in the carrying amount of tax assets, or an increase in other obligations as of the time of a relevant measurement event.
Reclassification of Prior Period Presentation
Certain prior period balances were reclassified to conform to the current period presentation. The reclassification had no impact on the Company’s unaudited statements of operations and comprehensive income or its unaudited statements of cash flows.
The entire disclosure for the basis of presentation and significant accounting policies concepts. Basis of presentation describes the underlying basis used to prepare the financial statements (for example, US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, Other Comprehensive Basis of Accounting, IFRS). Accounting policies describe all significant accounting policies of the reporting entity.
