Orlando, Fla. – September 4, 2014 – A multi-office team of attorneys with international law firm Greenberg Traurig served as issuers counsel on behalf of timeshare operator Orange Lake Country Club, Inc., in its $148.76 million timeshare loan securitization. The deal closed on August 13, 2014
The notes were sold to institutional purchasers in a private placement and are backed by a pool of fixed-rate timeshare loans originated by Orange Lake and its affiliates. The issuance of the notes, which have a fifteen year term, will give Orange Lake a more stable fixed rate on its debt.

Novakov (Dallas); Mindy B. Leathe (Miami); and Jim Mace (Las Vegas). The firm also represented Orange Lake in its two other securitizations.
