Management Discussion
  • Sale of vacation ownership products increased $607 million due primarily to $706 million of higher consolidated contract sales volumes, net of resales, $28 million of lower sales reserve activity, $14 million of higher settlement revenue, and $5 million of higher resales activity, partially offset by a $102 million unfavorable change in revenue reportability and $44 million of higher sales incentives issued (higher settlement revenue and higher sales incentives issued were driven by the higher contract sales volumes year-over-year).
  • The higher contract sales performance reflects the continued ramp-up of the business following the initial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic which commenced late in the prior year first quarter and resulted in the closure of all of our sales centers, as well as the inclusion of the Welk business beginning in the second quarter of 2021. As a result of reopening our sales centers throughout 2020 and 2021, as well as the Welk Acquisition, our contract sales volumes have improved on a sequential basis each quarter and we expect that sequential improvement to continue in 2022.
  • The lower sales reserve reflects the prior year increase to the sales reserve to take into account higher expected default activity as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
