BOCA RATON, Fla. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — Bluegreen Vacations Corporation
(NYSE:BXG) and its subsidiaries (“Bluegreen”) announced today that Bass
Pro Inc. and its affiliates (“Bass Pro”) notified Bluegreen that Bass
Pro was terminating the parties’ Marketing Agreement based on alleged
breaches by Bluegreen effective as of the close of business on May 24,
2019. As a result of that termination, the Company is no longer being
given access to the Bass Pro marketing channels or advertising materials.

Bluegreen and Bass Pro have had numerous meetings and discussions, the
most recent of which occurred on May 20, 2019. At that meeting,
Bluegreen proposed a comprehensive plan to address the outstanding
issues between the parties. At that meeting, Bass Pro committed to
getting back to Bluegreen and to sending Bluegreen requested documents.
On Thursday, Bass Pro emailed Bluegreen a question and on Friday
Bluegreen responded. Bluegreen was not advised of the termination by
Bass Pro until receipt of Bass Pro’s letter after the close of business
on Friday.

As previously announced, Bass Pro filed an action in federal court
related to the outstanding issues between the parties. Bluegreen, which
has not yet been served with the lawsuit, believes that even if Bass
Pro’s claims were established – which Bluegreen believes to be unlikely
– the amount of Bluegreen’s exposure relating to the monetary issues
raised by Bass Pro pursuant to the agreement would be less than $20
million. Bluegreen intends to pursue all legal and equitable remedies
available to it, including the filing of a counterclaim in the pending
litigation, for wrongful termination by Bass Pro of the parties’
Marketing Agreement.

Bluegreen’s vacation ownership interest (“VOI”) sales to new customers
from leads generated in Bass Pro stores constituted 14% of Bluegreen’s
total system-wide VOI sales, 29% of Bluegreen’s system-wide VOI sales to
new customers and 9% of Bluegreen’s total revenues for the year ended
December 31, 2018.
