12 ASSET SECURITIZATIONS
We periodically securitize, without recourse, through special purpose entities, notes receivable originated by our Timeshare segment in connection with the sale of timeshare interval and fractional products. We continue to service the notes and transfer all proceeds collected to special purpose entities. We retain servicing agreements and other interests in the notes. The executed transactions typically include minimal cash reserves established at time of securitization as well as default and delinquency triggers, which we monitor on a monthly basis. As a result of our adoption of the new Transfers of Financial Assets and Consolidation standards, we no longer account for note receivable securitizations as sales, but rather as secured borrowings as defined in these topics, and therefore, we did not recognize gains or losses on the 2010 note securitization, nor do we expect to recognize gains or losses on future note receivable securitizations. See Footnote No. 1, “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies,” for additional information on the impact of our 2010 first quarter adoption of the new Transfers of Financial Assets and Consolidation standards on our timeshare note securitizations, including the elimination of residual interests.
The following table shows cash flows between us and investors during 2009 and 2008. In 2010 we consolidated the entities that facilitate our notes receivable securitizations. See Footnote No. 20, “Variable Interest Entities,” for discussion of the impact of our involvement with these entities on our financial position, financial performance, and cash flows for 2010.
In 2010, 2009 and 2008, we securitized notes receivable originated by our Timeshare segment in connection with the sale of timeshare interval and fractional ownership products of $229 million, $446 million and $300 million, respectively. During 2010, we entered into one note securitization transaction for $229 million. The note securitization was made to a newly formed transaction-specific trust that, simultaneously with its purchase of the notes receivable, issued $218 million of the trust’s notes. During 2009, we entered into two note securitization transactions for $284 million and $380 million. The second of these transactions included our reacquisition and securitization of $218 million of notes that were previously securitized in the first transaction. Each note securitization in 2009 and 2008 was made to a newly formed transaction-specific trust that, simultaneously with its purchase of the notes receivable, issued $522 million and $246 million respectively, of the trust’s notes. In connection with the securitization of the notes receivable, we received proceeds, net of costs and reserves, of $215 million in 2010, $349 million in 2009 and $237 million in 2008. We have included gains from the sales of timeshare notes receivable totaling $37 million in 2009 and $16 million, net of $12 million of hedge ineffectiveness, in 2008 in the “Timeshare sales and services” revenue caption in our Income Statements.
