Capital One announced today that it closed a four-year $100 million senior warehouse facility for Diamond Resorts International, which will use the facility to finance notes receivable generated from the sale of vacation ownership intervals from its resort properties. Diamond Resorts is one of the largest timeshare companies in the world, with 426 managed and affiliated vacation destinations in 35 countries. It is a regular issuer of timeshare-backed securities and is one of only two issuers to have received an AA rating from the rating agencies.
“Diamond Resorts already had warehouse capacity of $300 million when they approached us,” said Jim Casey, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Capital One’s Vacation Ownership Lending group. “We tailored the revolver to be consistent with the company’s existing facilities, making it easier for them to utilize it.”
“This transaction gives us added capacity to continue monetizing our vacation interest notes receivable as our sales platform grows,” says Alan Bentley, Diamond Resort’s Chief Financial Officer. “The Capital One team was a pleasure to work with, displaying a thorough understanding throughout the transaction, both of the industry and the needs of our company.”
