Hilton Grand Vacations Inc. (NYSE: HGV) (“HGV” or “the company”) announces it has acquired Sunrise Lodge, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club.
Since 2012, the 83-unit, ski-in mountain lodge in Park City, Utah, has been operating under a fee-for-service agreement through which HGV provided marketing, sales and resort management services to the seller Sunrise Park City, LLC and its asset manager Lantern Asset Management.
“In buying Sunrise Lodge, we’re deploying our capital to secure another owned resort and on-site sales center, lock in a long-term management contract, realize improved economics on remaining inventory and offer our customers a consistent branding experience,” says Mark Wang, president and CEO, Hilton Grand Vacations.
The transaction is anticipated to be funded by existing cash on HGV’s balance sheet and expected to be accretive to HGV’s total adjusted EBITDA and EPS.

Amenities include an outdoor year-round heated swimming pool with two oversized spas, lobby lounge, complementary shuttle service within Park City, on-site ski equipment rental, ski-in access and exercise facilities.
