Hilton Grand Vacations Inc. (NYSE:HGV) announces today the completion of a $300 million securitization of vacation ownership loans through Hilton Grand Vacations Trust 2020-A ("the Trust"). Three classes of Notes were issued by the Trust, including approximately $186 million of Class A Notes, approximately $66 million of Class B Notes and approximately $48 million of Class C Notes.
The Class A Notes have an interest rate of 2.74%, the Class B Notes have an interest rate of 4.22% and the Class C Notes have an interest rate of 6.42%, for an overall weighted average interest rate of 3.66% and overall advance rate of 91%.
"We had great execution on our 2020 ABS offering despite a volatile economic environment," said Dan Mathewes, chief financial officer of Hilton Grand Vacations. "Demand was extremely robust with peak orders topping out at a record $4.2 billion resulting in a nearly 14x over-subscription, which allowed us to tighten our initial pricing."
Proceeds of the issuance, net of fees, will be used to pay down debt and for other general corporate purposes.
The Company also recently reopened a number of its properties in the Florida, Nevada, South Carolina and Utah markets. It expects to open the remainder of its properties over the coming months. An updated list of operating properties can be found at: hiltongrandvacations.com/en/travel-alert.

This press release is an announcement of record only and does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes, all of which have been sold.
