Settlement of 2014
Performance Shares

Certain of our named executive
officers were granted performances shares in 2014 by Hilton with
a three-year period covering 2014 through 2016 (the 2014
Performance Shares). These performance shares were comprised of
two separate grants, with 50% of the performance shares tied to
Hiltons Adjusted EBITDA CAGR over the three-year period and 50%
tied to Hiltons Relative TSR over the three-year
period.

In connection with the
Spin-Off, all outstanding equity-based awards granted under the
Hilton incentive plans relating to Hilton common stock that were
outstanding immediately prior to the effective date of the
Spin-Off, including the 2014 Performance Shares, converted into
awards under the Hilton Grand Vacations Inc. 2017 Omnibus
Incentive Plan (the HGV Plan) with equivalent value based on, and
to be settled in, the Companys common stock, subject to the same
general terms and conditions as the original
awards.

The HGV Plan was filed as
exhibit 10.4 to the Companys Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended
December31, 2016 (the Form 10-K).

Since the number of the 2014
Performance Shares to be issued to certain of the named executive
officers could not be determined until the measurement of the
applicable performance thresholds during the performance period
by Hilton, the EMA further provided that Hilton would notify the
Company of the determination by the Hilton compensation committee
as to whether and to what extent the applicable performance
conditions have been satisfied with respect to the 2014
Performance Shares. Based on the information provided by Hilton,
the Compensation Committee approved the issuances of the
following Performance Shares to certain of our named executive
officers:
