FlexWeek (FXWK)

FlexWeek (FXWK) is a pioneer in the global peer-to-peer (P2P) marketplace with the introduction of a unique platform that allows timeshare owners to discover, book and offer unused vacation time directly to the public and other timeshare owners. This approach eliminates the need for timeshare owners to use costly trading platforms such as Interval International or RCI, while potentially reducing unused timeshare inventory.

FlexWeek's P2P website (www.FlexWeek.com) and mobile application is similar to AirBNB's $20 billion approach to the travel industry, but is the first and only P2P marketplace exclusive to fractional vacation ownerships. FlexWeek differs from the existing model, where timeshare weeks must be "banked" with a trading company such as Interval International or RCI, and instead charges the booking fees to the renter of the vacation time, eliminating the cost to the private timeshare owner.

The FlexWeek platform also addresses another specific industry challenge. The average timeshare is only booked 79% of the year, according to the American Resort Development Association's 2012 research survey. Whether or not a privately owned timeshare unit is used, the owner still has to pay annual maintenance fees, and most owners end up losing thousands of dollars in wasted paid-for vacation time over their ownership period. With FlexWeek, an owner of unused paid vacation time can now offer their specific booked week for rent directly to the FlexWeek marketplace to recoup cost or even make a profit on the rental. The glut of unused timeshare inventory allows a potential renter to stay in a very nice condo for a fraction of what they would pay in hotel fees making it a win-win for both the owner and the renter of the vacation time.

Led by founder Kristopher Chavez, who has more than 10 years of experience operating businesses that acquire, rent, sell and transfer timeshares internationally, FlexWeek's management team will leverage its collective expertise to facilitate the company's direction and growth in this new market. FlexWeek's leadership has founded rapidly growing sales organizations generating 8-figure revenues within a year's time, and has experience scaling other models to financial success and/or acquisition rapidly with limited investment.
