Item 8.01. Other Events

On October 9, 2014, Marriott Vacations Worldwide Corporation (together with its subsidiaries, the “Company”) completed a securitization of a pool of approximately $250 million of vacation ownership notes receivable (the “Loans”). Approximately $205 million of the Loans were purchased on October 9, 2014 by the MVW Owner Trust 2014-1 (the “2014-1 Trust”), and all or a portion of the remaining Loans may be purchased by the 2014-1 Trust prior to February 16, 2015. In connection with the securitization, investors purchased $240 million in vacation ownership loan backed notes (the “Notes”) from the 2014-1 Trust in a private placement. Two classes of Notes were issued by the 2014-1 Trust: approximately $216 million of Class A Notes and approximately $24 million of Class B Notes. The Class A Notes have an interest rate of 2.25 percent and the Class B Notes have an interest rate of 2.70 percent, for an overall weighted average interest rate of 2.29 percent.

The gross cash proceeds to the Company (before transaction expenses and required reserves) consist of approximately $240 million, and a subordinated residual interest in the 2014-1 Trust through which it expects to realize the remaining value of the Loans over time. Of this amount, approximately $43 million will be held by the 2014-1 Trust until it purchases all or a portion of the remaining Loans or, if not used for such purpose, returned to the investors as a partial repayment of the Notes. In addition, approximately $4 million was used to pay transaction expenses and fund required reserves and the remainder will be used for general corporate purposes. The Company has accounted for the securitization as a secured borrowing and therefore will not recognize a gain or loss in the fourth quarter of 2014 as a result of this transaction.

The Notes have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. A copy of the Company’s October 10, 2014 press release announcing the issuance of the Notes is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this report.
