Good morning and thank you for joining us on the call today. This morning, we confirmed our second quarter results following the preliminary second quarter release on July 20. We reported adjusted EBITDA of $16 million and adjusted free cash flow of $166 million. The second quarter highlighted the strength and resiliency of our business model and although the majority of our resorts were closed for much of the quarter, we delivered $343 million of revenue and produced positive free cash flow and EBITDA.

I'm proud of how our organization has responded to both and want to reaffirm our unwavering commitment to address both events head-on, knowing that our culture of diversity and inclusion in economic performance will prove this out in the months and years to come.

Our resorts and sales operations were for all intents and purposes closed in April and May. The reopening phase began at the end of May and progressed throughout June, and we ended the second quarter with 85% of our US resorts and 56% of our sales locations reopened. Similar reopening time lines were seen by RCI and its developer affiliates.

In the second quarter, key metrics in both business segments, Vacation Clubs and Vacation Exchange, performed well during the reopening phase. With that said, we saw consumer sentiment declined at the end of June,
