Marriott Vacations Worldwide Corporation (“we,” “us,” “Marriott Vacations Worldwide” or the “Company,” which includes our consolidated subsidiaries except where the context of the reference is to a single corporate entity) is the exclusive worldwide developer, marketer, seller and manager of vacation ownership and related products under the Marriott Vacation Club and Grand Residences by Marriott brands. In 2016, we introduced Marriott Vacation Club Pulse, an extension to the Marriott Vacation Club brand. We are also the exclusive worldwide developer, marketer and seller of vacation ownership and related products under The Ritz-Carlton Destination Club brand, and we have the non-exclusive right to develop, market and sell whole ownership residential products under The Ritz-Carlton Residences brand. The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C., a subsidiary of Marriott International, provides on-site management for Ritz-Carlton branded properties.
Our business is grouped into three reportable segments: North America, Asia Pacific and Europe. As of June 30, 2017 , our portfolio consisted of over 65 properties in the United States and eight other countries and territories. We generate most of our revenues from four primary sources: selling vacation ownership products; managing our resorts; financing consumer purchases of vacation ownership products; and renting vacation ownership inventory.
Principles of Consolidation and Basis of Presentation
The interim consolidated financial statements presented herein and discussed below include 100 percent of the assets, liabilities, revenues, expenses and cash flows of Marriott Vacations Worldwide, all entities in which Marriott Vacations Worldwide has a controlling voting interest (“subsidiaries”), and those variable interest entities for which Marriott Vacations Worldwide is the primary beneficiary in accordance with consolidation accounting guidance. Intercompany accounts and transactions between consolidated companies have been eliminated in consolidation. The interim consolidated financial statements reflect our financial position, results of operations and cash flows as prepared in conformity with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”).
In order to make this report easier to read, we refer throughout to (i) our Interim Consolidated Financial Statements as our “Financial Statements,” (ii) our Interim Consolidated Statements of Income as our “Statements of Income,” (iii) our Interim Consolidated Balance Sheets as our “Balance Sheets,” and (iv) our Interim Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows as our “Cash Flows.” In addition, references throughout to numbered “Footnotes” refer to the numbered Notes in these Notes to Interim Consolidated Financial Statements, unless otherwise noted.
Beginning with our 2017 fiscal year, we changed our financial reporting cycle to a calendar year-end and end-of-month quarterly reporting cycle. Accordingly, our 2017 fiscal year began on December 31, 2016 (the day after the end of the 2016 fiscal year) and will end on December 31, 2017, and our 2017 quarters include the three month periods ended March 31, June 30, September 30, and December 31, except that the period ended March 31, 2017 also includes December 31, 2016. Our future fiscal years will begin on January 1 and end on December 31. Historically, our fiscal year was a 52 or 53 week fiscal year that ended on the Friday nearest to December 31, and our quarterly reporting cycle included twelve week periods for the first, second, and third quarters and a sixteen week period (or in some cases a seventeen week period) for the fourth quarter. We have not restated, and do not plan to restate, historical results.
The table below shows the reporting periods as we refer to them in this report, their date ranges, and the number of days in each:
Reporting Period

366
2016 fiscal year
 
January 2, 2016 — December 30, 2016
 
364

As a result of the change in our financial reporting cycle, our 2017 second quarter had seven more days of activity than our 2016 second quarter, and our 2017 first half had 14 more days of activity than our 2016 first half. While our 2017 full fiscal year will have only two additional days of activity as compared to our 2016 full fiscal year, our 2017 third quarter will have eight additional days of activity, and our 2017 fourth quarter will have 20 fewer days of activity than the corresponding periods in our 2016 fiscal year.

In our opinion, our Financial Statements reflect all normal and recurring adjustments necessary to present fairly our financial position and the results of our operations and cash flows for the periods presented. Interim results may not be indicative of fiscal year performance because of, among other reasons, seasonal and short-term variations.
These Financial Statements have not been audited. Amounts as of December 30, 2016 included in these Financial Statements have been derived from the audited consolidated financial statements as of that date. We have condensed or omitted certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP. Although we believe our footnote disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading, you should read these Financial Statements in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes to those consolidated financial statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 30, 2016 .
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Such estimates include, but are not limited to, revenue recognition, cost of vacation ownership products, inventory valuation, property and equipment valuation, loan loss reserves, loss contingencies and income taxes. Accordingly, actual amounts may differ from these estimated amounts.
We have reclassified certain prior year amounts to conform to our current period presentation. Our Financial Statements include adjustments for the 2016 second quarter and 2016 first half to correct immaterial presentation errors, consistent with those reported in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 30, 2016, within the following line items on our Statements of Income: Resort management and other services revenues, Resort management and other services expenses and General and administrative expenses. Correction of these immaterial errors had no impact on our consolidated Net income.
The impact of these adjustments on the Financial Statements is as follows:

Deferred Compensation Plan
Beginning in our 2017 fiscal year, participants in the Marriott Vacations Worldwide Deferred Compensation Plan (the “Deferred Compensation Plan”) may select a rate of return based on various market-based investment alternatives for a portion of their contributions, as well as any future Company contributions, to the Deferred Compensation Plan, and may also select such a rate for a portion of their existing account balances. To support our ability to meet a portion of our obligations under the Deferred Compensation Plan, we acquired company owned insurance policies (the “COLI policies”) on the lives of certain participants in the Deferred Compensation Plan, the proceeds of which are intended to be aligned with the investment alternatives elected by plan participants and are payable to a rabbi trust with the Company as grantor. A portion of a participant’s contributions to the Deferred Compensation Plan must be subject to a fixed rate of return, which for our 2017 fiscal year was reduced to 3.5 percent.
We consolidate the liabilities of the Deferred Compensation Plan and the related assets, which consist of the COLI policies held in the rabbi trust. The rabbi trust is considered a variable interest entity (“VIE”). We are considered the primary beneficiary of the rabbi trust because we direct the activities of the trust and are the beneficiary of the trust. At June 30, 2017, the value of the assets held in the rabbi trust was $10.6 million , which is included in the Other line within assets on our Balance Sheets.

New Accounting Standards
Accounting Standards Update No. 2017-09 – “ Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Scope of Modification Accounting ” (“ASU 2017-09”)
In May 2017, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2017-09, which clarifies when changes to the terms or conditions of a share-based payment award must be accounted for as modifications for the purpose of applying the modification guidance in Accounting Standards Codification Topic 718. This update is effective for all entities for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, and for interim periods within those annual periods, with early adoption permitted. Our early adoption of ASU 2017-09 in the 2017 second quarter did not have an impact on our financial statements or disclosures.
Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-18 – “ Restricted Cash ” (“ASU 2016-18”)
In November 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-18, which requires entities to show the changes in the total of cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents in the statement of cash flows. As a result, we will no longer present changes in restricted cash as a component of investing activities. This update is effective for public companies for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years. We adopted ASU 2016-18 on a retrospective basis commencing in the 2017 first quarter.
Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-09 – “ Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718) ” (“ASU 2016-09”)
In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, which changes how entities account for certain aspects of share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities and classification on the statement of cash flows. The new guidance requires all income tax effects of awards, including excess tax benefits, to be recorded as income tax expense (or benefit) in the income statement, which resulted in benefits to our provision for income taxes of $2.8 million in the 2017 second quarter and $5.2 million in the 2017 first half. The new guidance requires excess tax benefits to be presented as an operating inflow rather than as a financing inflow in the statement of cash flows. Prior to the adoption of ASU 2016-09, excess tax benefits were recorded in additional paid-in-capital on the balance sheet. This update is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016 and interim periods within those annual periods. We adopted ASU 2016-09 in the 2017 first quarter. The adoption of ASU 2016-09 decreased our provision for income taxes, the amount of which depends on the vesting activity of our share-based compensation awards in any given period, and eliminated the presentation of excess tax benefits as a financing inflow on our statement of cash flows. Further, we made an accounting policy election to recognize forfeitures of share-based compensation awards as they occur, the cumulative effect of which resulted in an adjustment of $0.4 million to opening retained earnings. The adoption of ASU 2016-09 did not have any other material impacts on our financial statements and disclosures.
Future Adoption of Accounting Standards
Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-16 – “ Income Taxes (Topic 740): Intra-Entity Transfers of Assets Other Than Inventory ” (“ASU 2016-16”)
In October 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-16, which changes the timing of when certain intercompany transactions are recognized within the provision for income taxes. This update is effective for public companies for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, and for annual periods and interim periods thereafter, with early adoption permitted. We are evaluating the impact that ASU 2016-16, including the timing of implementation, will have on our financial statements and disclosures.
Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-13 – “ Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326), Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments ” (“ASU 2016-13”)
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, which replaces the incurred loss impairment methodology in current GAAP with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses. The update is intended to provide financial statement users with more decision-useful information about the expected credit losses on financial instruments and other commitments to extend credit held by a reporting entity at each reporting date. This update is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018. We are evaluating the impact that ASU 2016-13, including the timing of implementation, will have on our financial statements and disclosures.

Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-02 – “ Leases (Topic 842) ” (“ASU 2016-02”)
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02 to increase transparency and comparability of information regarding an entity’s leasing activities by providing additional information to users of financial statements. ASU 2016-02 amends the existing accounting standards for lease accounting, including requiring lessees to recognize most leases on their balance sheets and making targeted changes to lessor accounting. The new standard requires a modified retrospective transition approach for all leases existing at, or entered into after, the date of initial application, with an option to use certain transition relief. This update is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. Although we expect to adopt ASU 2016-02 in fiscal year 2019 and have commenced our implementation efforts, we continue to evaluate the impact that adoption of this accounting standards update will have on our financial statements and disclosures.
Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-01 – “ Financial Instruments – Overall (Subtopic 825-10) (“ASU 2016-01”)
In January 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-01, which updates certain aspects of recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of financial instruments. For public business entities, the amendments in ASU 2016-01 will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years. We do not expect the adoption of ASU 2016-01 to have a material impact on our financial statements.
Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09 – “ Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) ” (“ASU 2014-09”), as Amended     
In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, which, as amended, supersedes the revenue recognition requirements in Topic 605, Revenue Recognition, as well as most industry-specific guidance, and significantly enhances comparability of revenue recognition practices across entities and industries by providing a principle-based, comprehensive framework for addressing revenue recognition issues. In order for a provider of promised goods or services to recognize as revenue the consideration that it expects to receive in exchange for the promised goods or services, the provider should apply the following five steps: (1) identify the contract with a customer; (2) identify the performance obligations in the contract; (3) determine the transaction price; (4) allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract; and (5) recognize revenue when (or as) the entity satisfies a performance obligation. ASU 2014-09, as amended, will be effective for annual reporting periods, and interim periods within those reporting periods, beginning after December 15, 2017. The new standard may be applied retrospectively or on a modified retrospective basis with the cumulative effect recognized on the date of adoption. We will adopt ASU 2014-09, as amended, commencing in fiscal year 2018, on a retrospective basis. While we continue to evaluate the impact that adoption of this accounting standards update will have on our financial statements and disclosures, we expect the amount and timing of revenue recognition related to our accounting for management fee revenues, ancillary revenues and rental revenues will remain materially consistent with our current accounting. We expect adoption of ASU 2014-09 will result in the following with respect to the recognition of revenues from the sale of vacation ownership products within our North America segment:
alignment of our assessment of collectibility of the transaction price with our credit granting policies;
deferral of revenue recognition deemed collectible from expiration of the statutory rescission period to closing, when control of the vacation ownership product is transferred to the customer;
no impact to sales reserve accounting; and
net presentation of certain sales incentives (e.g., Marriott Rewards Points).
In addition, we expect to elect the practical expedient available in ASU 2014-09 to expense all marketing and sales costs as they are incurred. We anticipate disclosing additional detail on the impact of adoption of this accounting standards update later in 2017.
2. INCOME TAXES
We file income tax returns with U.S. federal and state and non-U.S. jurisdictions and are subject to audits in these jurisdictions. Although we do not anticipate that a significant impact to our unrecognized tax benefit balance will occur during the next fiscal year, the amount of our liability for unrecognized tax benefits could change as a result of audits in these jurisdictions. Our total unrecognized tax benefit balance that, if recognized, would impact our effective tax rate, was $1.5 million at both June 30, 2017 and December 30, 2016 .

We record an estimate of expected uncollectibility on all notes receivable from vacation ownership purchasers as a reduction of revenues from the sale of vacation ownership products at the time we recognize profit on a vacation ownership product sale. We fully reserve for all defaulted vacation ownership notes receivable in addition to recording a reserve on the estimated uncollectible portion of the remaining vacation ownership notes receivable. For those vacation ownership notes receivable that are not in default, we assess collectibility based on pools of vacation ownership notes receivable because we hold large numbers of homogeneous vacation ownership notes receivable. We use the same criteria to estimate uncollectibility for non-securitized vacation ownership notes receivable and securitized vacation ownership notes receivable because they perform similarly. We estimate uncollectibility for each pool based on historical activity for similar vacation ownership notes receivable.

_________________________

Decrease in securitized vacation ownership notes receivable reserve and increase in non-securitized vacation ownership notes receivable reserve was attributable to the transfer of the reserve when we voluntarily repurchased defaulted securitized vacation ownership notes receivable.
Although we consider loans to owners to be past due if we do not receive payment within 30 days of the due date, we suspend accrual of interest only on those loans that are over 90 days past due. We consider loans over 150 days past due to be in default. We apply payments we receive for vacation ownership notes receivable on non-accrual status first to interest, then to principal and any remainder to fees. We resume accruing interest when vacation ownership notes receivable are less than 90 days past due. We do not accept payments for vacation ownership notes receivable during the foreclosure process unless the amount is sufficient to pay all past due principal, interest, fees and penalties owed and fully reinstate the note. We write off uncollectible vacation ownership notes receivable against the reserve once we receive title to the vacation ownership products through the foreclosure or deed-in-lieu process or, in Asia Pacific or Europe, when revocation is complete. For both non-securitized and securitized vacation ownership notes receivable, we estimated average remaining default rates of 7.14 percent and 7.09 percent as of June 30, 2017 and December 30, 2016 , respectively. A 0.5 percentage point increase in the estimated default rate would have resulted in an increase in our allowance for loan losses of $5.4 million and $5.0 million as of June 30, 2017 and December 30, 2016 , respectively.

4. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
The following table shows the carrying values and the estimated fair values of financial assets and liabilities that qualify as financial instruments, determined in accordance with the authoritative guidance for disclosures regarding the fair value of financial instruments. Considerable judgment is required in interpreting market data to develop estimates of fair value. The use of different market assumptions and/or estimation methodologies could have a material effect on the estimated fair value amounts. The table excludes Cash and cash equivalents, Restricted cash, Accounts and contracts receivable, Accounts payable, Advance deposits and Accrued liabilities, all of which had fair values approximating their carrying amounts due to the short maturities and liquidity of these instruments.

Vacation Ownership Notes Receivable
We estimate the fair value of our securitized vacation ownership notes receivable using a discounted cash flow model. We believe this is comparable to the model that an independent third party would use in the current market. Our model uses default rates, prepayment rates, coupon rates and loan terms for our securitized vacation ownership notes receivable portfolio as key drivers of risk and relative value that, when applied in combination with pricing parameters, determine the fair value of the underlying vacation ownership notes receivable.
Due to factors that impact the general marketability of our non-securitized vacation ownership notes receivable, as well as current market conditions, we bifurcate our vacation ownership notes receivable at each balance sheet date into those eligible and not eligible for securitization using criteria applicable to current securitization transactions in the asset-backed securities (“ABS”) market. Generally, vacation ownership notes receivable are considered not eligible for securitization if any of the following attributes are present: (1) payments are greater than 30 days past due; (2) the first payment has not been received; or (3) the collateral is located in Asia or Europe. In some cases, eligibility may also be determined based on the credit score of the borrower, the remaining term of the loans and other similar factors that may reflect investor demand in a securitization transaction or the cost to effectively securitize the vacation ownership notes receivable.
The following table shows the bifurcation of our non-securitized vacation ownership notes receivable into those eligible and not eligible for securitization based upon the aforementioned eligibility criteria:

We estimate the fair value of the portion of our non-securitized vacation ownership notes receivable that we believe will ultimately be securitized in the same manner as securitized vacation ownership notes receivable. We value the remaining non-securitized vacation ownership notes receivable at their carrying value, rather than using our pricing model. We believe that the carrying value of these particular vacation ownership notes receivable approximates fair value because the stated interest rates of these loans are consistent with current market rates and the reserve for these vacation ownership notes receivable appropriately accounts for risks in default rates, prepayment rates, discount rates and loan terms.
Other Assets
We estimate the fair value of our other assets that are financial instruments using Level 2 inputs. These assets consist of COLI policies held in a rabbi trust. The carrying value of the COLI policies is equal to their cash surrender value.
Non-Recourse Debt Associated with Securitized Vacation Ownership Notes Receivable and Warehouse Credit Facility
We generate cash flow estimates by modeling all bond tranches for our active vacation ownership notes receivable securitization transactions and our non-recourse warehouse credit facility (the “Warehouse Credit Facility”), with consideration for the collateral specific to each tranche. The key drivers in our analysis include default rates, prepayment rates, bond interest rates and other structural factors, which we use to estimate the projected cash flows. In order to estimate market credit spreads by rating, we obtain indicative credit spreads from investment banks that actively issue and facilitate the market for vacation ownership securities and determine an average credit spread by rating level of the different tranches. We then apply those estimated market spreads to swap rates in order to estimate an underlying discount rate for calculating the fair value of the active bonds payable.
Revolving Corporate Credit Facility
The carrying value of the outstanding balance on our $200 million revolving corporate credit facility (the “Revolving Corporate Credit Facility”) approximates fair value, as the contractual interest rate for funds currently borrowed floats at an annual borrowing rate as defined in the Revolving Corporate Credit Facility, which is determined based on certain publicly available rates plus an applicable margin based on our credit rating.

Non-Interest Bearing Note Payable
The carrying value of our non-interest bearing note payable issued in connection with the acquisition of vacation ownership units located on the Big Island of Hawaii approximates fair value, because the imputed interest rate used to discount this note payable is consistent with current market rates. See Footnote No. 5, “Acquisitions and Dispositions,” and Footnote No. 9, “Debt,” for additional information on this transaction.
5. ACQUISITIONS AND DISPOSITIONS
Acquisitions
Marco Island, Florida
During the 2017 second quarter, we acquired 36 completed vacation ownership units located at our resort in Marco Island, Florida for $33.6 million . The transaction was accounted for as an asset acquisition with all of the purchase price allocated to Property and equipment. To ensure consistency with the expected related future cash flow presentation, the cash purchase price was included as an operating activity in the Purchase of vacation ownership units for future transfer to inventory line on our Cash Flows. See Footnote No. 8, “Contingencies and Commitments,” for information on our remaining commitment related to this property.
Big Island of Hawaii
During the 2017 second quarter, we acquired 112 completed vacation ownership units located on the Big Island of Hawaii. The transaction was accounted for as an asset acquisition with all of the purchase price allocated to Inventory. As consideration for the acquisition, we paid $27.3 million in cash, settled a $0.5 million note receivable from the seller on a non-cash basis, and issued a non-interest bearing note payable for $63.6 million . See Footnote No. 9, “Debt,” for information on the non-interest bearing note payable.
Miami Beach, Florida
During the 2016 first quarter, we completed the acquisition of an operating property located in the South Beach area of Miami Beach, Florida for $23.5 million . The acquisition was treated as a business combination, accounted for using the acquisition method of accounting and included within Operating activities on our Cash Flows. As consideration for the acquisition, we paid $23.5 million in cash; the value of the acquired property was allocated to Inventory. We rebranded this property as Marriott Vacation Club Pulse, South Beach and converted it, in its entirety, into vacation ownership inventory.
Dispositions
San Francisco, California
During the 2016 second quarter, we disposed of 19 residential units located at The Ritz-Carlton Club and Residences, San Francisco (the “RCC San Francisco”) for gross cash proceeds of $19.5 million . We accounted for the sale under the full accrual method in accordance with the authoritative guidance on accounting for sales of real estate and recorded a gain of $10.5 million in the (Losses) gains and other (expense) income line on our Statements of Income for the 2016 second quarter and the 2016 first half.
Surfers Paradise, Australia
During 2015, we completed the acquisition of an operating property located in Surfers Paradise, Australia. During the 2016 second quarter, we disposed of the portion of this operating property that we did not intend to convert into vacation ownership inventory for gross cash proceeds of AUD $70.5 million ( $50.9 million ). We accounted for the sale under the full accrual method in accordance with the authoritative guidance on accounting for sales of real estate. As part of the disposition, we guaranteed the net operating income of this portion of the operating property through 2021 up to a specified maximum of AUD $2.9 million ( $2.2 million ), which was recorded as a deferred gain in the Other line within liabilities on our balance sheet. We recognized a loss, inclusive of the deferred gain, of AUD $1.2 million ( $0.9 million ) in connection with the sale, which was recorded in (Losses) gains and other (expense) income line on the Statement of Income for the 2016 second quarter and the 2016 first half.

6. EARNINGS PER SHARE
Basic earnings per common share is calculated by dividing net income attributable to common shareholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the reporting period. Treasury stock is excluded from the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding. Diluted earnings per common share is calculated to give effect to all potentially dilutive common shares that were outstanding during the reporting period. The dilutive effect of outstanding equity-based compensation awards is reflected in diluted earnings per common share by application of the treasury stock method using average market prices during the period.
The table below illustrates the reconciliation of the earnings and number of shares used in our calculation of basic and diluted earnings per share.

_________________________
(1)  
The computations of diluted earnings per share exclude approximately 306,000 shares of common stock, the maximum number of shares issuable as of June 30, 2017 upon the vesting of certain performance-based awards, because the performance conditions required to be met for the shares subject to such awards to vest were not achieved by the end of the reporting period.
(2)  
The computations of diluted earnings per share exclude approximately 263,000 shares of common stock, the maximum number of shares issuable as of June 17, 2016 upon the vesting of certain performance-based awards, because the performance conditions required to be met for the shares subject to such awards to vest were not achieved by the end of the reporting period.
In accordance with the applicable accounting guidance for calculating earnings per share, for the 2017 second quarter and the 2017 first half, our calculation of diluted earnings per share included shares of underlying stock appreciation rights (“SARs”) that may be settled in shares of common stock, because the exercise prices of such SARs were less than or equal to the average market prices for the applicable period.
For the 2016 second quarter, we excluded from our calculation of diluted earnings per share 62,018 shares underlying SARs that may be settled in shares of common stock because the exercise price of $77.42 of such SARs was greater than the average market price for the applicable period.
For the 2016 first half, we excluded from our calculation of diluted earnings per share 194,615 shares underlying SARs that may be settled in shares of common stock because the exercise prices of such SARs, which ranged from $61.71 to $77.42 , were greater than the average market price for the applicable period.

We value vacation ownership and residential products at the lower of cost or fair market value less costs to sell, in accordance with applicable accounting guidance, and we record operating supplies at the lower of cost (using the first-in, first-out method) or net realizable value. Product cost true-up activity relating to vacation ownership products decreased carrying values of inventory by $0.4 million during the 2017 first half and increased carrying values of inventory by $10.7 million during the 2016 first half.
In addition to the above, at June 30, 2017 , we had $48.7 million of completed vacation ownership units which have been classified as a component of Property and equipment until the time at which they are legally registered for sale as vacation ownership products. Furthermore, at June 30, 2017 , we also had $315.2 million of commitments to acquire completed vacation ownership units as discussed below in Footnote No. 8, “Contingencies and Commitments.”
8. CONTINGENCIES AND COMMITMENTS
Commitments and Letters of Credit
As of June 30, 2017 , we had the following commitments outstanding:
We have various contracts for the use of information technology hardware and software that we use in the normal course of business. Our aggregate commitments under these contracts were $26.2 million , of which we expect $6.7 million , $11.4 million , $4.2 million , $1.7 million , $0.8 million and $1.4 million will be paid in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and thereafter, respectively.
We have a commitment to purchase an operating property located in New York, New York, for $ 158.5 million , of which $7.2 million is attributed to a related capital lease arrangement and recorded in Debt. We expect to acquire the units in the property in their current form, over time, and we expect to make payments for these units of $ 96.8 million and $ 61.7 million in 2018 and 2019, respectively. We currently manage this property, which we have rebranded as Marriott Vacation Club Pulse, New York City. See Footnote No. 12, “Variable Interest Entities,” for additional information on this transaction.
We have commitments to purchase vacation ownership units located in two resorts in Bali, Indonesia in two separate transactions, contingent upon completion of construction to agreed-upon standards within specified timeframes, for use in our Asia Pacific segment. We expect to complete the acquisition of 51 vacation ownership units in the 2017 third quarter pursuant to one of the commitments, subject to the completion of specific construction milestones, and to make remaining payments of $15.4 million with respect to these units. We expect to complete the acquisition of 88 vacation ownership units in 2019 pursuant to the other commitment and to make payments with respect to these units when specific construction milestones are completed, as follows: $7.8 million in 2017, $5.9 million in 2018 and $25.4 million in 2019.
We have a remaining commitment to purchase vacation ownership units located at our resort in Marco Island, Florida for $102.2 million , which we expect will be paid as follows: $ 50.0 million in 2018 and $ 52.2 million in 2019. See Footnote No. 5, “Acquisitions and Dispositions,” and Footnote No. 12, “Variable Interest Entities,” for additional information on this transaction.

16


We have new operating lease commitments that expire in 2029 . Our aggregate minimum lease payments under these contracts are $17.6 million , of which we expect $0.2 million , $0.4 million , $1.7 million , $1.7 million , $1.9 million and $11.7 million will be paid in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and thereafter, respectively.
Surety bonds issued as of June 30, 2017 totaled $37.7 million , the majority of which were requested by federal, state or local governments in connection with our operations.
Additionally, as of June 30, 2017 , we had $4.6 million of letters of credit outstanding under our Revolving Corporate Credit Facility.
Loss Contingencies         
In April 2013, Krishna and Sherrie Narayan and other owners of 12 residential units (owners of two of which subsequently agreed to release their claims) at the resort formerly known as The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Kapalua Bay (“Kapalua Bay”) filed an amended complaint in Circuit Court for Maui County, Hawaii against us, certain of our subsidiaries, Marriott International, certain of its subsidiaries, and the joint venture in which we have an equity investment that developed and marketed vacation ownership and residential products at Kapalua Bay (the “Joint Venture”). In the original complaint, the plaintiffs alleged that defendants mismanaged funds of the residential owners association (the “Kapalua Bay Association”), created a conflict of interest by permitting their employees to serve on the Kapalua Bay Association’s board, and failed to disclose documents to which the plaintiffs were allegedly entitled. The amended complaint alleges breach of fiduciary duty, violations of the Hawaii Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act and the Hawaii condominium statute, intentional misrepresentation and concealment, unjust enrichment and civil conspiracy. The relief sought in the amended complaint includes injunctive relief, repayment of all sums paid to us and our subsidiaries and Marriott International and its subsidiaries, compensatory and punitive damages, and treble damages under the Hawaii Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act. We dispute the material allegations in the amended complaint and continue to defend against the action vigorously. We filed a motion in the Circuit Court to compel arbitration of plaintiffs’ claims. That motion was denied, but on appeal the Hawaii Intermediate Court of Appeals reversed. The Hawaii Supreme Court reversed the decision of the Intermediate Court of Appeals and reinstated the action in Circuit Court, which set the case for trial. We filed a petition with the United States Supreme Court seeking review of the Hawaii Supreme Court’s decision. In January 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court issued an order vacating the Hawaii Supreme Court’s decision and remanding the case with instructions to reconsider its ruling in light of a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision reiterating the obligation of courts to enforce arbitration agreements. On July 14, 2017, the Hawaii Supreme Court issued a decision reaffirming its prior ruling and remanding the case to the Circuit Court for trial. On July 24, 2017, we filed a motion for reconsideration of that decision. Given the inherent uncertainties of litigation, we cannot estimate a range of the potential liability, if any, at this time.
In June 2013, Earl C. and Patricia A. Charles, owners of a fractional interest at Kapalua Bay, together with owners of  38 other fractional interests (owners of two of which subsequently agreed to release their claims) at Kapalua Bay, filed an amended complaint in the Circuit Court of the Second Circuit for the State of Hawaii against us, certain of our subsidiaries, Marriott International, certain of its subsidiaries, the Joint Venture, and other entities that have equity investments in the Joint Venture. The plaintiffs allege that the defendants failed to disclose the financial condition of the Joint Venture and the commitment of the defendants to the Joint Venture, and that defendants’ actions constituted fraud and violated the Hawaii Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act, the Hawaii Condominium Property Act and the Hawaii Time Sharing Plans statute. The relief sought includes compensatory and punitive damages, attorneys’ fees, pre-judgment interest, declaratory relief, rescission and treble damages under the Hawaii Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act. The complaint was subsequently further amended to add owners of two additional fractional interests as plaintiffs. The Circuit Court granted our motion to compel arbitration of the claims asserted by the plaintiffs. Plaintiffs appealed that decision to the Hawaii Intermediate Court of Appeals and also initiated arbitration. In July 2015, the Intermediate Court of Appeals reversed the decision of the Circuit Court and directed that the action be reinstated in the Circuit Court, based on the Hawaii Supreme Court’s decision in the Narayan case discussed above, which was subsequently vacated by the U.S. Supreme Court. On July 14, 2017, the Hawaii Supreme Court issued an opinion reaffirming its 2015 ruling in the Nayayan case and remanding that case to the trial court. We filed a motion for reconsideration of the Hawaii Supreme Court’s decision in the Narayan case on July 24, 2017, which remains pending. We dispute the material allegations in the amended complaint and intend to defend against the action vigorously. Given the early stages of the action and the inherent uncertainties of litigation, we cannot estimate a range of the potential liability, if any, at this time.

On May 26, 2015, we and certain of our subsidiaries were named as defendants in an action filed in the Superior Court of San Francisco County, California, by William and Sharon Petrick and certain other present and former owners of 69 fractional interests at the RCC San Francisco. The plaintiffs allege that the affiliation of the RCC San Francisco with our points-based Marriott Vacation Club Destinations (“MVCD”) program, certain alleged sales practices, and other acts we and the other defendants allegedly took caused an actionable decrease in the value of their fractional interests. The relief sought includes, among other things, compensatory and punitive damages, rescission, and pre- and post-judgment interest. Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint on April 25, 2016. We filed a motion to dismiss. The Court held a hearing and the parties are awaiting a decision. We dispute the material allegations in the amended complaint and intend to defend against the action vigorously. Given the early stages of the action and the inherent uncertainties of litigation, we cannot estimate a range of the potential liability, if any, at this time.
On March 31, 2017, RCHFU, L.L.C. and other owners of 232 fractional interests at The Ritz-Carlton Club, Aspen Highlands (“RCC Aspen Highlands”) served an amended complaint in an action pending in the court against us, certain of our subsidiaries, and other third party defendants. The U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado has ordered that no further amendments will be permitted. The amended complaint alleges that the plaintiffs’ fractional interests were devalued by the affiliation of RCC Aspen Highlands and other Ritz-Carlton Clubs with our points-based MVCD program. The relief sought includes, among other things, unspecified damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, and attorneys’ fees. We filed a motion to dismiss the amended complaint, which remains pending. We dispute the plaintiffs’ material allegations and intend to defend against the action vigorously. Given the early stages of the action and the inherent uncertainties of litigation, we cannot estimate a range of the potential liability, if any, at this time.
On May 20, 2016, we, certain of our subsidiaries, and other third parties were named as defendants in an action filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida by Anthony and Beth Lennen. The case is filed as a putative class action; the plaintiffs seek to represent a class consisting of themselves and all other purchasers of MVCD points, from inception of the MVCD program in June 2010 to the present, as well as all individuals who own or have owned weeks in any resorts for which weeks have been added to the MVCD program. Plaintiffs challenge the characterization of the beneficial interests in the MVCD trust that are sold to customers as real estate interests under Florida law. They also challenge the structure of the trust and associated operational aspects of the trust product. The relief sought includes, among other things, declaratory relief, an unwinding of the MVCD product, and punitive damages. On September 15, 2016, we filed a motion to dismiss the complaint and a motion to stay the case pending referral of certain questions to Florida state regulators, which motions remain pending. We dispute the material allegations in the complaint and intend to defend against the action vigorously. Given the early stages of the action and the inherent uncertainties of litigation, we cannot estimate a range of the potential liability, if any, at this time.

The debt associated with our vacation ownership notes receivable securitizations and the Warehouse Credit Facility is non-recourse to us.
As the contractual terms of the underlying securitized vacation ownership notes receivable determine the maturities of the non-recourse debt associated with them, actual maturities may occur earlier than shown above due to prepayments by the vacation ownership notes receivable obligors.
We paid cash for interest, net of amounts capitalized, of $9.9 million and $8.9 million in the 2017 first half and the 2016 first half, respectively.
Debt Associated with Vacation Ownership Notes Receivable Securitizations
Each of the transactions in which we have securitized vacation ownership notes receivable contains various triggers relating to the performance of the underlying vacation ownership notes receivable. If a pool of securitized vacation ownership notes receivable fails to perform within the pool’s established parameters (default or delinquency thresholds vary by transaction), transaction provisions effectively redirect the monthly excess spread we would otherwise receive from that pool (attributable to the interests we retained) to accelerate the principal payments to investors (taking into account the subordination of the different tranches to the extent there are multiple tranches) until the performance trigger is cured. During the 2017 first half, and as of June 30, 2017 , no securitized vacation ownership notes receivable pools were out of compliance with their respective established parameters. As of June 30, 2017 , we had 7 securitized vacation ownership notes receivable pools outstanding.
Warehouse Credit Facility
The Warehouse Credit Facility, which has a borrowing capacity of $250 million , allows for the securitization of vacation ownership notes receivable on a non-recourse basis. The Warehouse Credit Facility terminates on March 7, 2019 and if not renewed, any amounts outstanding thereunder would become due and payable 13 months after termination, at which time all principal and interest collected with respect to the vacation ownership notes receivable held in the Warehouse Credit Facility would be redirected to the lenders to pay down the outstanding debt under the facility. The advance rate for vacation ownership notes receivable securitized using the Warehouse Credit Facility varies based on the characteristics of the securitized vacation ownership notes receivable. We also pay unused facility and other fees under the Warehouse Credit Facility.
During the 2017 second quarter, we securitized vacation ownership notes receivable under our Warehouse Credit Facility. The carrying amount of the vacation ownership notes receivable securitized was $59.1 million . The advance rate was 85 percent, which resulted in gross proceeds of $50.3 million . Net proceeds were $50.0 million due to the funding of reserve accounts in the amount of $0.3 million . We generally expect to securitize our vacation ownership notes receivable, including any vacation ownership notes receivable held in the Warehouse Credit Facility, in the ABS market once per year.

Revolving Corporate Credit Facility
The Revolving Corporate Credit Facility, which terminates on September 10, 2019, has a borrowing capacity of $200 million , including a letter of credit sub-facility of $100 million , and provides support for our business, including ongoing liquidity and letters of credit. Borrowings under the Revolving Corporate Credit Facility generally bear interest at a floating rate plus an applicable margin that varies from 1.625 percent to 3.125 percent depending on our credit rating. In addition, we pay a commitment fee on the unused availability under the Revolving Corporate Credit Facility at a rate that varies from 20 basis points per annum to 50 basis points per annum depending on our credit rating.
Any amounts that are borrowed under the Revolving Corporate Credit Facility, as well as obligations with respect to letters of credit issued pursuant to that facility, are secured by a perfected first priority security interest in substantially all of the assets of the borrower under, and guarantors of, that facility (which include Marriott Vacations Worldwide and each of our direct and indirect, existing and future, domestic subsidiaries, excluding certain bankruptcy remote special purpose subsidiaries), in each case including inventory, subject to certain exceptions. As of June 30, 2017, we were in compliance with the requirements of applicable financial and operating covenants under the facility.
Subsequent to the end of the 2017 second quarter, we borrowed $27.5 million under our Revolving Corporate Credit Facility to facilitate the funding of our short-term working capital needs.
Non-Interest Bearing Note Payable
During the 2017 second quarter, we issued a non-interest bearing note payable in connection with the acquisition of vacation ownership units located on the Big Island of Hawaii. See Footnote No. 5, “Acquisitions and Dispositions,” for additional information regarding this transaction.

As of June 30, 2017, our Board of Directors had authorized the repurchase of an aggregate of up to 10.9 million shares of our common stock under the share repurchase program since the initiation of the program in October 2013. Share repurchases may be made through open market purchases, privately negotiated transactions, block transactions, tender offers, accelerated share repurchase agreements or otherwise. The specific timing, amount and other terms of the repurchases will depend on market conditions, corporate and regulatory requirements and other factors. Acquired shares of our common stock are held as treasury shares carried at cost in our Financial Statements.

During the 2017 first half, we also granted performance based RSUs, which are subject to performance based vesting conditions, to members of management. A maximum of 94,436 RSUs may be earned under the performance based RSUs granted during the 2017 first half.
Stock Appreciation Rights
We granted 81,977 SARs, with a weighted average grant-date fair value of $27.63 and a weighted average exercise price of $97.53 , to members of management during the 2017 first half. We use the Black-Scholes model to estimate the fair value of the SARs granted. The average expected life was calculated using the simplified method. The risk-free interest rate was calculated based on U.S. Treasury zero-coupon issues with a remaining term equal to the expected life assumed at the date of grant. The dividend yield assumption listed below is based on the expectation of future payouts.
The following table outlines the assumptions used to estimate the fair value of grants during the 2017 first half:

12. VARIABLE INTEREST ENTITIES
Variable Interest Entities Related to Our Vacation Ownership Notes Receivable Securitizations
We periodically securitize, without recourse, through bankruptcy remote special purpose entities, notes receivable originated in connection with the sale of vacation ownership products. These vacation ownership notes receivable securitizations provide funding for us and transfer the economic risks and substantially all the benefits of the consumer loans we originate to third parties. In a vacation ownership notes receivable securitization, various classes of debt securities issued by a special purpose entity are generally collateralized by a single tranche of transferred assets, which consist of vacation ownership notes receivable. With each vacation ownership notes receivable securitization, we may retain a portion of the securities, subordinated tranches, interest-only strips, subordinated interests in accrued interest and fees on the securitized vacation ownership notes receivable or, in some cases, overcollateralization and cash reserve accounts.
We created these bankruptcy remote special purpose entities to serve as a mechanism for holding assets and related liabilities, and the entities have no equity investment at risk, making them variable interest entities. We continue to service the vacation ownership notes receivable, transfer all proceeds collected to these special purpose entities, and retain rights to receive benefits that are potentially significant to the entities. Accordingly, we concluded that we are the entities’ primary beneficiary and, therefore, consolidate them.

Under the terms of our vacation ownership notes receivable securitizations, we have the right at our option to repurchase defaulted vacation ownership notes receivable at the outstanding principal balance. The transaction documents typically limit such repurchases to 15 to 20 percent of the transaction’s initial vacation ownership notes receivable principal balance. Our maximum exposure to loss relating to the special purpose entities that purchase, sell and own these vacation ownership notes receivable is the overcollateralization amount (the difference between the loan collateral balance and the balance on the outstanding vacation ownership notes receivable), plus cash reserves and any residual interest in future cash flows from collateral. In addition, we could be required to fund up to an aggregate of $5.0 million upon presentation of demand notes related to certain vacation ownership notes receivable securitization transactions outstanding at June 30, 2017 .
Other Variable Interest Entities
We have a commitment to purchase an operating property located in New York, New York, that we currently manage as Marriott Vacation Club Pulse, New York City. Refer to Footnote No. 8, “Contingencies and Commitments” for additional information on the commitment. We are required to purchase the completed property from the third party developer unless the developer has sold the property to another party. The property is held by a variable interest entity for which we are not the primary beneficiary as we cannot prevent the variable interest entity from selling the property at a higher price. Accordingly, we have not consolidated the variable interest entity. As of June 30, 2017 , our Balance Sheet reflected $8.3 million in Property

25


and equipment related to a capital lease and leasehold improvements; $7.2 million in Debt related to the capital lease liability for ancillary and operations space we lease from the variable interest entity; and $0.4 million of Accrued liabilities. In addition, a note receivable of $0.5 million is included in the Accounts and contracts receivable line on the Balance Sheet as of June 30, 2017 . We believe that our maximum exposure to loss as a result of our involvement with this variable interest entity is $2.0 million as of June 30, 2017 .
Pursuant to a commitment to repurchase an operating property located in Marco Island, Florida that was previously sold to a third-party developer, we acquired 36 completed vacation ownership units during the 2017 second quarter. We remain obligated to repurchase the remaining portion of the operating property. Refer to Footnote No. 8, “Contingencies and Commitments” for additional information on the commitment. The developer is a variable interest entity for which we are not the primary beneficiary as we do not control the variable interest entity’s development activities and cannot prevent the variable interest entity from selling the property at a higher price. Accordingly, we have not consolidated the variable interest entity. We are obligated to repurchase the remaining portion of the property from the developer contingent upon the property meeting our brand standards upon completion, provided that the third-party developer has not sold the property to another party. As of June 30, 2017 , our Balance Sheet reflected $3.5 million of Inventory, $2.2 million of Other assets that relate to prepaid and other deposits, and $7.5 million of Other liabilities that relate to the deferral of gain recognition on the previous sale transaction and the deferral of revenue for development management services for the remaining purchase commitment, both of which will reduce our basis in the asset if we repurchase the property. In addition, a note receivable of $0.5 million is included in the Accounts and contracts receivable line on the Balance Sheet as of June 30, 2017 . We believe that our maximum exposure to loss as a result of our involvement with this variable interest entity is less than $1 million as of June 30, 2017 .
13. BUSINESS SEGMENTS
We define our reportable segments based on the way in which the chief operating decision maker, currently our chief executive officer, manages the operations of the company for purposes of allocating resources and assessing performance. We operate in three reportable business segments:
In our North America segment, we develop, market, sell and manage vacation ownership and related products under the Marriott Vacation Club and Grand Residences by Marriott brands. In 2016, we introduced Marriott Vacation Club Pulse, an extension to the Marriott Vacation Club brand. We also develop, market and sell vacation ownership and related products under The Ritz-Carlton Destination Club brand, as well as whole ownership residential products under The Ritz-Carlton Residences brand.
