Prior to the spin-off date (see Footnote No. 17, “Spin-off” for additional information on the spin-off), we periodically securitized, without recourse, through special purpose entities, notes receivable originated by our former Timeshare segment in connection with the sale of timeshare interval and fractional products. We continued to service the notes and transferred all proceeds collected to special purpose entities. We retained servicing agreements and other interests in the notes. The executed transactions typically included minimal cash reserves established at time of securitization, as well as default and delinquency triggers, which we monitored on a monthly basis. See Footnote No. 1, “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” for information on the impact of our 2010 adoption of the new Transfers of Financial Assets and Consolidation standards on our timeshare note securitizations, including the elimination of residual interests and the accounting for note receivable securitizations as secured borrowings, rather than sales.
The following table shows cash flows between us and investors during 2009. In 2010, we consolidated the entities that facilitated 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 and 2011.
In 2010 and 2009, we securitized notes receivable originated by our Timeshare segment in connection with the sale of timeshare interval and fractional ownership products of $229 million and $446 million, respectively. During 2010, we entered into one note securitization transaction for $229 million. The note securitization was made to a 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 was made to a transaction-specific trust that, simultaneously with its purchase of the notes receivable, issued $522 million 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 and $349 million in 2009. We included gains from the sales of timeshare notes receivable totaling $37 million in 2009 in the “Timeshare sales and services” revenue caption in our Income Statement. In 2010, we accounted for the note securitization transaction under the new Transfers of Financial Assets and Consolidation standards. Accordingly, no gain or loss was recorded in conjunction with the 2010 note securitization transaction.
