ARAMARK AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

NOTE 1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES:
Aramark (the "Company") is a leading global provider of food and facilities services to education, healthcare, business & industry and sports, leisure & corrections clients. The Company's core market is the United States, which is supplemented by an additional 14-country footprint. The Company also provides services on a more limited basis in several additional countries and in offshore locations. The Company operates its business in two reportable segments that share many of the same operating characteristics: Food and Support Services United States ("FSS United States") and Food and Support Services International ("FSS International").
On September 30, 2023, the Company completed the previously announced separation and distribution of its Aramark Uniform and Career Apparel ("Uniform") segment into an independent publicly traded company, Vestis Corporation ("Vestis"), and the historical results of the Uniform segment have been reflected as discontinued operations in the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements for all periods prior to the separation and distribution. Assets and liabilities associated with the Uniform segment are classified as assets and liabilities of discontinued operations in the Company's Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of September 29, 2023. Additional disclosures regarding the separation and distribution are provided in Note 2.
The condensed consolidated financial statements included herein have been prepared by the Company pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") and should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements, and the notes to those statements, included in the Company's Form 10-K filed with the SEC on November 21, 2023. The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of September 29, 2023 was derived from audited financial statements which have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("U.S. GAAP"). Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in the consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations, although the Company believes that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information not misleading. In the opinion of the Company, the statements include all adjustments, which are of a normal, recurring nature, required for a fair presentation for the periods presented. The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results for a full year, due to the seasonality of some of the Company's business activities and the possibility of changes in general economic conditions.
The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and all of its subsidiaries in which a controlling financial interest is maintained. All intercompany transactions and accounts have been eliminated.
New Accounting Standards Updates
Adopted Standards (from most to least recent date of issuance)
In September 2022, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standard Update ("ASU") 2022-04 Liabilities - Supplier Finance Programs (Subtopic 405-50) to enhance the transparency of supplier finance programs, which may be referred to as reverse factoring, payables finance or structured payables arrangements. The guidance requires that a buyer in a supplier finance program disclose the program's nature, activity and potential magnitude. The guidance was effective for the Company in the first quarter of fiscal 2024. The Company reviewed existing supplier finance agreements and enhanced disclosures with qualitative and quantitative information about its supplier finance program, but the adoption of this guidance did not have a material impact on the condensed consolidated financial statements.
In October 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-08 Business Combinations (Topic 805): Accounting for Contract Assets and Contract Liabilities from Contracts with Customers which required that an entity (acquirer) recognize and measure contract assets and contract liabilities acquired in a business combination in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers ("ASC 606") as if it had originated the contracts. The guidance was effective for the Company in the first quarter of fiscal 2024. The adoption of this guidance did not have a material impact on the condensed consolidated financial statements.
Standards Not Yet Adopted (from most to least recent date of issuance)
In March 2024, the SEC adopted final climate-related disclosure rules under SEC Release Nos. 33-11275 and 34-99678, The Enhancement and Standardization of Climate-Related Disclosures for Investors. The rules require disclosure of governance, risk management and strategy related to material climate-related risks as well as disclosure of material greenhouse gas emissions in registration statements and annual reports. In addition, the rules require presentation of certain material climate-related disclosures in the annual consolidated financial statements. On April 4, 2024, the SEC voluntarily stayed the effective date of the final rules pending completion of judicial review following legal challenges. The disclosure requirements will apply to the Company's fiscal year reporting beginning October 4, 2025, pending resolution of the stay. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the rules on the Company’s disclosures.

ARAMARK AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)
In December 2023, the FASB issued ASU 2023-09 Income Taxes (Topic 740): Improvements to Income Tax Disclosures to enhance the transparency and decision usefulness of income tax disclosures. The guidance will require improvements to income tax disclosures primarily related to the rate reconciliation and income taxes paid information. The guidance is effective for the Company's annual disclosures for fiscal 2026 and early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this standard.
In November 2023, the FASB issued ASU 2023-07 Segment Reporting (Topic 280): Improvements to Reportable Segment Disclosures to enhance the reportable segment disclosures. The guidance will require additional disclosures about significant segment expenses. The guidance is effective for the Company's annual disclosures for fiscal 2025 and early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this standard.
Other new accounting pronouncements recently issued or newly effective were not applicable to the Company, did not have a material impact on the condensed consolidated financial statements or are not expected to have a material impact on the condensed consolidated financial statements.

Currency Translation
Gains and losses resulting from the translation of financial statements of non-United States subsidiaries are reflected as a component of accumulated other comprehensive loss in stockholder's equity. Beginning in fiscal 2018, Argentina was determined to have a highly inflationary economy. As a result, the Company remeasures the financial statements of Argentina's operations in accordance with the accounting guidance for highly inflationary economies. The impact of the Argentina remeasurement was a foreign currency transaction loss of $0.9 million and $4.8 million during the three and six month periods ended March 29, 2024. The impact of the Argentina remeasurement was a foreign currency transaction loss of $2.8 million and $3.9 million during the three and six month periods ended March 31, 2023. The impact of foreign currency transaction gains and losses exclusive of Argentina's operations included in the Company's operating results during the three and six month periods of both fiscal 2024 and 2023 were immaterial to the condensed consolidated financial statements. 
Current Assets
The Company insures portions of its risk in general liability, automobile liability, workers’ compensation liability claims as well as certain property damage risks through a wholly owned captive insurance subsidiary (the "Captive") as part of its approach to risk finance. The Captive is subject to regulations within its domicile of Bermuda, including regulations established by the Bermuda Monetary Authority (the "BMA") relating to levels of liquidity and solvency as such concepts are defined by the BMA. The Captive was in compliance with these regulations as of March 29, 2024. These regulations may have the effect of limiting the Company's ability to access certain cash and cash equivalents held by the Captive for uses other than for the payment of its general liability, automobile liability, workers' compensation liability, certain property damage and related Captive costs. As of March 29, 2024 and September 29, 2023, cash and cash equivalents at the Captive were $13.2 million and $32.8 million, respectively. The Captive also invests in United States Treasury securities where the amount as of March 29, 2024 and September 29, 2023 was $112.8 million and $110.7 million, respectively, and is recorded in "Prepayments and other current assets" on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
Within the FSS International segment, the Company receives certain cash on behalf of the Company's clients, which is contractually restricted from withdrawal and usage. This restricted cash is recorded in "Prepayments and other current assets" on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
Property and Equipment and Operating Lease Right-of-use Assets
During fiscal 2023, the Company completed a strategic review of certain administrative locations, taking into account facility capacity and current utilization, among other factors. Based on this review, the Company vacated or otherwise reduced its usage at certain of these locations, resulting in an analysis of the recoverability of the assets associated with the locations. As a result, for the three and six months ended March 31, 2023, the Company recorded an impairment charge of $0.7 million and $19.0 million within its FSS United States segment, which is included in "Cost of services provided (exclusive of depreciation and amortization)" on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income. For the three and six months ended March 31, 2023, the non-cash impairment charges within the FSS United States segment consisted of operating lease right-of-use assets of $0.7 million and $8.6 million, respectively, and property and equipment of zero and $10.4 million, respectively.
Other Assets
Other assets consist primarily of costs to obtain or fulfill contracts (including employee sales commissions), long-term receivables, investments in 50% or less owned entities and computer software costs.
For investments in 50% or less owned entities accounted for under the equity method of accounting, the carrying amount as of March 29, 2024 and September 29, 2023 was $71.6 million and $73.5 million, respectively.
For investments in 50% or less owned entities, other than those accounted for under the equity method of accounting, the Company measures these investments at cost, less any impairment and adjusted for changes in fair value resulting from

observable price changes for an identical or a similar investment of the same issuer due to the lack of readily available fair values related to those investments. The carrying amount of equity investments without readily determinable fair values as of both March 29, 2024 and September 29, 2023 was $83.6 million.
Supply Chain Finance Program
The Company has agreements with third-party administrators that allow participating vendors to voluntarily elect to sell payment obligations from the Company to financial institutions as part of a Supply Chain Finance Program ("SCF Program"). The Company's payment terms to the financial institutions, including the timing and amount of payments, are based on the original supplier invoices. When participating vendors elect to sell one or more of the Company's payment obligations, the Company's rights and obligations to settle the payable on their contractual due date are not impacted. The Company has no economic or commercial interest in a vendor's decision to sell the Company's payment obligations. The Company agrees on commercial terms with vendors for the goods and services procured, which are consistent with payment terms observed at other peer companies in the industry, and the terms are not impacted by the SCF Program. For the SCF Program, the Company does not provide asset pledges, or other forms of guarantees, as security for the committed payment to the financial institutions. As of March 29, 2024 and September 29, 2023, the Company had $2.2 million and $2.8 million, respectively, of outstanding payment obligations to the financial institutions as part of the SCF Program recorded in "Accounts payable" on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
Other Current and Noncurrent Liabilities
The Company is self-insured for certain obligations related to its employee health care benefit programs as well as for certain risks retained under its general liability, automobile liability, workers' compensation liability and certain property damage programs. Reserves for these programs are estimated through actuarial methods, with the assistance of third-party actuaries using loss development assumptions based on the Company's claims history.
Impact of COVID-19
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act ("CARES Act") provided for deferred payment of the employer portion of social security taxes through the end of calendar 2020, with 50% of the deferred amount due December 31, 2021 and the remaining 50% of the amount due December 31, 2022. Approximately $47.6 million of deferred social security taxes were paid in fiscal 2023.
NOTE 2. DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS:
On September 30, 2023, the Company completed the previously announced separation and distribution of its Uniform segment into an independent publicly traded company, Vestis. The separation was structured as a tax free spin-off, which occurred by way of a pro rata distribution to Aramark stockholders. Each of the Aramark stockholders received one share of Vestis common stock for every two shares of Aramark common stock held of record as of the close of business on September 20, 2023. Vestis is now an independent public company under the symbol “VSTS” on the New York Stock Exchange.
In connection with the separation and distribution, the Company entered into or adopted several agreements that provide a framework for the relationship between the Company and Vestis, including, but not limited to the following:
Separation and Distribution Agreement - governs the rights and obligations of the parties regarding the distribution following the completion of the separation, including the transfer of assets and assumption of liabilities, and establishes certain rights and obligations between the Company and Vestis following the distribution, including procedures with respect to claims subject to indemnification and related matters.
Transition Services Agreement - governs services between the Company and Vestis and their respective affiliates to provide each other on an interim, transitional basis, various services, including, but not limited to, administrative, information technology and cybersecurity support services and certain finance, treasury, tax and governmental function services. The services will terminate no later than 24 months following the distribution date.
Tax Matters Agreement - governs the parties’ respective rights, responsibilities and obligations with respect to tax liabilities and benefits, tax attributes, the preparation and filing of tax returns, the control of audits and other tax proceedings and other matters regarding taxes.
Employee Matters Agreement - governs the allocation of liabilities and responsibilities relating to employment matters, employee compensation and benefits plans and programs and other related matters.
Under these agreements, the Company will continue to provide certain services to Vestis following the separation and distribution. The agreements do not provide the Company with the ability to influence the operating or financial policies of Vestis subsequent to the separation date. During the three and six months ended March 29, 2024, the value of the services provided to Vestis were $3.5 million and $8.1 million, respectively. Current amounts due to Aramark from Vestis as of March 29, 2024 were not material.

As a result of the Amendment No. 14, (i) U.S. Term B-5 Loans due 2028 previously outstanding under the Credit Agreement were replaced with new United States dollar denominated Term B-7 Loans (“U.S. Term B-7 Loans due 2028”) in an amount equal to $730.5 million due in April 2028 and (ii) U.S. Term B-6 Loans due 2030 previously outstanding under the Credit Agreement were replaced with the new United States dollar denominated Term B-8 Loans (“U.S. Term B-8 Loans due 2030”) in an amount equal to $1,094.5 million due in June 2030, each with an interest rate equal to the sum of (a) the Term Secured Overnight Financing Rate ("SOFR") Rate (as defined in the Credit Agreement) plus (b) an applicable margin of 2.00% plus (c) a credit spread adjustment of 0.0% (as compared to the interest rate for the U.S. Term B-5 Loans due 2028 and the U.S. Term B-6 Loans due 2030 equal to the sum of (a) the Term SOFR Rate plus (b) an applicable margin of 2.50% plus (c) a credit spread adjustment between 0.11448% and 0.42826% (depending on the selected interest period)).
The U.S. Term B-7 Loans due 2028 do not require any quarterly repayments of the principal amount and require the payment of $730.5 million at maturity. The U.S. Term B-8 Loans due 2030 require repayment of principal in quarterly installments of $2.8 million from March 31, 2024 through March 31, 2030 and $1,025.8 million at maturity.

NOTE 6. DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS:
The Company enters into contractual derivative arrangements to manage changes in market conditions related to interest on debt obligations, including interest rate swap agreements, that are recognized as either assets or liabilities on the balance sheet at fair value at the end of each quarter. The counterparties to the Company's contractual derivative agreements are all major international financial institutions. The Company is exposed to credit loss in the event of nonperformance by these counterparties. The Company continually monitors its positions and the credit ratings of its counterparties and does not anticipate nonperformance by the counterparties. The Company formally documents the hedging relationship and its risk management objective and strategy for undertaking the hedge, the hedging instrument, the hedged item, the nature of the risk being hedged and how the hedging instrument's effectiveness in offsetting the hedged risk will be assessed prospectively and retrospectively for designated hedges. The Company also formally assesses, both at the hedge's inception and on an ongoing basis, whether the derivatives that are used in hedging transactions are highly effective in offsetting cash flows of hedged items.
Cash Flow Hedges
The Company has $2.3 billion notional amount of outstanding interest rate swap agreements as of March 29, 2024, which fix the rate on a like amount of variable rate borrowings with varying maturities through December of fiscal 2028. During the second quarter of fiscal 2024, $100.0 million notional amount of previously forward starting interest rate swap agreements to hedge the cash flow risk of variability in interest payments on variable rate borrowings became effective.
Changes in the fair value of a derivative that is designated as and meets all the required criteria for a cash flow hedge are recorded in accumulated other comprehensive loss and reclassified into earnings as the underlying hedged item affects earnings. Amounts reported in accumulated other comprehensive loss related to derivatives will be reclassified to interest expense as interest payments are made on the Company’s variable-rate debt. As of March 29, 2024 and September 29, 2023, $80.9 million and $109.1 million, respectively, of unrealized net of tax gains related to the interest rate swaps were included in "Accumulated other comprehensive loss" on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

NOTE 7. REVENUE RECOGNITION:
The Company generates revenue through sales of food and facility services to customers based on written contracts at the locations it serves. The Company provides food and beverage services, including catering and retail services, and facilities services, including plant operations and maintenance, custodial, housekeeping, landscaping and other services. In accordance with ASC 606, the Company accounts for a customer contract when both parties have approved the arrangement and are committed to perform their respective obligations, each party's rights can be identified, payment terms can be identified, the contract has commercial substance and it is probable the Company will collect substantially all of the consideration to which it is entitled. Revenue is recognized upon the transfer of control of the promised product or service to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration the Company expects to receive in exchange for those goods and services.
Performance Obligations
The Company recognizes revenue when its performance obligation is satisfied. Each contract generally has one performance obligation, which is satisfied over time. The Company primarily accounts for its performance obligations under the series guidance, using the as-invoiced practical expedient when applicable. The Company applies the right to invoice practical expedient to record revenue as the services are provided, given the nature of the services provided and the frequency of billing under the customer contracts. Under this practical expedient, the Company recognizes revenue in an amount that corresponds directly with the value to the customer of the Company’s performance completed to date and for which the Company has the right to invoice the customer. Certain arrangements include performance obligations which include variable consideration (primarily per transaction fees). For these arrangements, the Company does not need to estimate the variable consideration for the contract and allocate to the entire performance obligation; therefore, the variable fees are recognized in the period they are earned.

Beginning in fiscal 2024, management began reporting results for healthcare facility services within "Healthcare", whereas the results were previously reported within "Facilities & Other". As such, the "Healthcare" and "Facilities & Other" results for the three and six months ended March 31, 2023 were recast to reflect this change.
Contract Balances
Deferred income is recognized in "Accrued expenses and other current liabilities" on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets when the Company has received consideration, or has the right to receive consideration, in advance of the transfer of the performance obligation of the contract to the customer, primarily prepaid meal plans. The consideration received remains a liability until the goods or services have been provided to the customer. The Company classifies deferred income as current as the deferred income is expected to be recognized in the next 12 months. If the Company cannot render its performance obligation according to contract terms after receiving the consideration in advance, amounts may be contractually required to be refunded to the customer.
During the six months ended March 29, 2024, deferred income increased related to customer prepayments and decreased related to income recognized during the period as a result of satisfying the performance obligation or return of funds related to non-performance. For the six months ended March 29, 2024, the Company recognized $233.8 million of revenue that was included in deferred income at the beginning of the period. Deferred income balances are summarized in the following table (in millions):

NOTE 8. INCOME TAXES:
During the six months ended March 29, 2024, the Company recorded a valuation allowance to the "Provision for Income Taxes from Continuing Operations" on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income of $7.1 million against certain foreign tax credits, as it is more likely than not a tax benefit will not be realized due to the reduction of future forecasted foreign income as a result of the separation and distribution of the Uniform segment.
During the three and six months ended March 31, 2023, the Company recorded a benefit to the "Provision for Income Taxes from Continuing Operations" on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income of $3.8 million for the reversal of a valuation allowance at a foreign subsidiary driven by the Company's ability to utilize the deferred tax assets based on future taxable income expected due to the acquisition of a business.
NOTE 9. STOCKHOLDERS' EQUITY:
On April 26, 2024, the Company's Board of Directors approved a $0.095 dividend per share of common stock, payable on May 28, 2024, to stockholders of record on the close of business on May 13, 2024.

NOTE 10. SHARE-BASED COMPENSATION:
On October 13, 2023, the Company's Compensation and Human Resources Committee of the Board of Directors (the "Committee"), pursuant to the terms of the Third Amended and Restated 2013 Stock Incentive Plan and to reflect the separation and distribution of the Company’s Uniform segment that occurred on September 30, 2023, approved amendments to the performance goals and performance periods for the Company’s outstanding Performance Stock Units ("PSUs"). For the PSUs granted in fiscal 2022, which were subject to performance targets for the three-year period ending September 27, 2024, two-thirds of these PSUs became subject to new adjusted performance targets and an adjusted performance period for the two-year period ending September 29, 2023 and the remaining one-third of these PSUs will be subject to new adjusted performance targets for the one-year period ending September 27, 2024. The PSUs granted in fiscal 2023, which were subject to performance targets for the three-year period ending October 3, 2025, were amended to be subject to adjusted performance targets primarily to reflect the Company on a post-spin off basis. The Committee also approved adjustments increasing the maximum aggregate number of shares authorized for awards under the 2023 Stock Plan by an additional 3.5 million shares.
The following table summarizes the share-based compensation expense and related information for Time-Based Options ("TBOs"), Retention Time-Based Options ("TBO-Rs"), Time-Based Restricted Stock Units ("RSUs"), PSUs, Deferred Stock Units and Employee Stock Purchase Plan ("ESPP") recorded within "Selling and general corporate expenses" on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income (in millions).

However, in the event of unexpected further developments, it is possible that the ultimate resolution of these matters, or other similar matters, if unfavorable, may be materially adverse to the Company's business, financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.
