COVID-19 Update

As disclosed in our press release dated March 16, 2020, the Company has withdrawn its prior Full Year 2020 Guidance due to the increased uncertainty created by the impact of COVID-19.

The Company continues to be impacted by the pandemic and the various government mandates in nearly all of the locations in which it operates. It is unknown how long these adverse conditions and restrictions will continue. To optimize HGV’s liquidity and access to capital in light of the adverse impact of the pandemic, particularly as substantially most of the Company’s properties have temporarily suspended operations and substantially all of its sales, operations and other activities have been suspended, the Company has taken significant steps in an effort to decrease its expenses. These efforts include the recently announced furlough of over 6,100 of its team members, and the temporary reductions of all team members’ base salaries and directors’ annual cash retainers, among other actions.

The Company will share additional details during its conference call scheduled for later today.
