“Today, more than ever, people want to vacation to see new places, reunite with family and friends, or just to relax, and the products we offer, with extra square footage in a resort setting, are resonating with them, translating into higher occupancies and strong first time buyer growth,” said Stephen P. Weisz, chief executive officer. “Contract sales in the second quarter grew 60% sequentially to $362 million and Adjusted EBITDA more than doubled compared to the first quarter. With the recovery in full swing, we’ve been able to turn our focus back towards the digitally enabled growth initiatives we have in front of us to transform our business, drive long-term growth and improve margins.”

Second Quarter 2021 Segment Results
Revenues excluding cost reimbursements increased 189% in the second quarter of 2021 compared to the prior year and increased 52% from the first quarter of 2021 as the business continued to recover. Compared to the first quarter, revenue from the sale of vacation ownership products increased 82% and Development profit margin increased to 22%. Excluding the impact of revenue reportability, Adjusted development profit more than doubled sequentially to $81 million, with Adjusted development profit margin increasing nearly 570 basis points to 26%, approximately 240 basis points above second quarter 2019 levels.
Vacation Ownership segment financial results were $151 million in the second quarter of 2021 and segment Adjusted EBITDA more than doubled on a sequential basis to $182 million, with Adjusted EBITDA margin in line with second quarter 2019 despite lower revenue.
Exchange & Third-Party Management
Revenues excluding cost reimbursements increased 56% in the second quarter of 2021 compared to the prior year and was largely unchanged compared to the first quarter. Interval International exchange volumes increased 13% compared to the prior year but decreased 22% on a sequential basis largely due to normal seasonality and were only down 1% compared to second quarter 2019. Active members declined 11% compared to the first quarter to 1.3 million, primarily due to the non-renewal of one of Interval’s corporate customers which the Company announced in February of 2021. Average revenue per member increased 54% compared to the prior year and was up 7% compared to the second quarter of 2019.
Exchange & Third-Party Management segment financial results were $27 million in the second quarter of 2021 and, as expected, segment Adjusted EBITDA declined $4 million sequentially to $37 million, with Adjusted EBITDA margin 245 basis points higher than second quarter 2019.
Corporate and Other
General and administrative costs increased $47 million in the second quarter of 2021 compared to the prior year as a result of higher net overall spending as operations continue to ramp-up, reinstating compensation plans following 2020, and a lower credit in the current year related to incentives under the CARES Act for companies who continued paying associates’ benefit costs while not working as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Balance Sheet and Liquidity

In the second quarter of 2021, the Company issued $500 million of 4.5% Senior Notes maturing in 2029 and used the proceeds in early July to repay $500 million of its $750 million 6.5% Senior Notes.
