Booking Holdings Inc.
Notes to Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements
 
1.    BASIS OF PRESENTATION
 
Management of Booking Holdings Inc. (the "Company") is responsible for the Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements included in this document. The Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP") and include all normal and recurring adjustments that management of the Company considers necessary for a fair presentation of its financial position and operating results. The Company prepared the Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements following the requirements of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") for interim reporting. As permitted under those rules, the Company condensed or omitted certain footnotes or other financial information that are normally required by U.S. GAAP for annual financial statements. These statements should be read in combination with the Consolidated Financial Statements in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.
 
The Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, including acquired businesses from the dates of acquisition. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The functional currency of the Company's subsidiaries is generally the respective local currency. For international operations, assets and liabilities are translated into U.S. Dollars at the rate of exchange existing at the balance sheet date. Income statement amounts are translated at monthly average exchange rates applicable for the period. Translation gains and losses are included as a component of "Accumulated other comprehensive loss" in the accompanying Consolidated Balance Sheets. Foreign currency transaction gains and losses are included in "Other income (expense), net" in the Unaudited Consolidated Statements of Operations.
 
Revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities can vary during each quarter of the year. Therefore, the results and trends in these interim financial statements may not be the same as those for any subsequent quarter or the full year.

Impact of COVID-19

In response to the outbreak of COVID-19 (the "COVID-19 pandemic"), as well as subsequent outbreaks driven by new variants of COVID-19, governments and businesses around the world have implemented a variety of restrictive measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. These measures have had a significant adverse effect on many of the customers on whom the Company's business relies, including hotels and other accommodation providers, airlines, and restaurants, as well as the Company's operations, employees, and consumers. The COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting implementation of restrictive measures resulted in a significant decline in travel activities and consumer demand for related services, in 2020 in particular. The Company's financial results and prospects are almost entirely dependent on the sale of travel-related services. The spread of new variants of COVID-19 has caused uncertainty as to when restrictions will be lifted, if additional restrictions may be initiated or reimposed, if there will be permanent changes to travel behavior patterns, and the timing of distribution and administration of COVID-19 vaccines and other medical interventions globally. See Note 2 to the Consolidated Financial Statements in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 for further information.

Even though there have been some improvements in the economic and operating conditions for the Company's business since the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company cannot predict the long-term effects of the pandemic on its business or the travel and restaurant industries as a whole.

Reclassification
Certain amounts from prior periods have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity's Own Equity

On January 1, 2022, the Company adopted the new accounting standards update relating to convertible instruments and contracts in an entity's own equity. Compared to legacy U.S. GAAP, the accounting standards update reduces the number of accounting models for convertible debt instruments, requires fewer embedded conversion features to be separately recognized from the host contract, and amends certain guidance to reduce form-over-substance-based accounting conclusions. Under the updated guidance, upon the initial recognition of convertible debt, the Company presents the entire amount attributable to the debt as a liability. The initial carrying amount of the convertible debt liability is reduced by any direct and
9


incremental issuance costs paid to third parties that are associated with the convertible debt issuance. No amount attributable to the debt is initially recognized within equity unless the instrument is issued at a substantial premium. In calculating diluted earnings per share, the accounting standards update also requires the use of the if-converted method for the Company's convertible debt.

The Company adopted the accounting standards update on a modified retrospective basis applied to the 0.75% convertible senior notes due May 2025 (see Note 9) resulting in an increase of $30 million to "Retained earnings" as of January 1, 2022. The significant corresponding balance sheet changes as of that date were an increase of $86 million to "Long-term debt" and decreases of $96 million to "Additional paid-in capital" and $21 million to "Deferred income taxes". For the Company’s convertible debt, interest expense for the periods beginning after January 1, 2022 is reflected in the financial statements using interest rates that are closer to the coupon interest rate of the debt rather than the higher imputed interest expense that resulted from the separation of conversion features required by legacy U.S. GAAP. See Note 4 for additional information on net income per share calculations.

Fair Value Measurement of Equity Securities Subject to Contractual Sale Restrictions

In June 2022, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued an accounting standards update with guidance on the fair value measurement of equity securities subject to contractual sale restrictions. The update clarifies that a contractual restriction on the sale of an equity security is not considered part of the unit of account of the equity security and, therefore, is not considered in measuring fair value. The update also clarifies that an entity cannot, as a separate unit of account, recognize and measure a contractual sale restriction. The update also requires certain additional disclosures for equity securities subject to contractual sale restrictions. The amendments in this update are effective for the Company from January 1, 2024. Early adoption is permitted for both interim and annual financial statements that have not yet been issued or made available for issuance. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting the accounting standards update.

2.    REVENUE

Disaggregation of Revenue

Geographic Information

The Company's revenue from its businesses outside of the U.S. consists of the results of Booking.com, agoda, and Rentalcars.com in their entirety and the results of the KAYAK and OpenTable businesses located outside of the U.S. This classification is independent of where the consumer resides, where the consumer is physically located while using the Company's services, or the location of the travel service provider or restaurant. For example, a reservation made through Booking.com (which is domiciled in the Netherlands) at a hotel in New York by a consumer in the United States is part of the results of the Company's businesses outside of the U.S. The Company's geographic information is as follows (in millions):
Outside of the U.S.
United StatesThe NetherlandsOtherTotal
Total revenues for the three months ended June 30,
2022$594 $3,340 $360 $4,294 
2021$393 $1,601 $166 $2,160

2022$1,069 $5,309 $611 $6,989 
2021$590 $2,412 $299 $3,301 

Revenue by Type of Service

Approximately 88% and 87% of the Company's revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, respectively, and 83% and 84% of the Company's revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively, relate to online accommodation reservation services. Revenue from all other sources of online travel reservation services and advertising and other revenues each individually represent less than 10% of the Company's total revenues for each period.

10


Deferred Merchant Bookings

Cash payments received from travelers in advance of the Company completing its performance obligations are included in "Deferred merchant bookings" in the Company's Consolidated Balance Sheets and are comprised principally of amounts estimated to be payable to travel service providers as well as the Company's estimated future revenue for its commission or margin and fees. The amounts are subject to refunds for cancellations. The Company expects to complete its performance obligations generally within one year from the reservation date.

Incentive Programs

The Company provides various incentive programs such as referral bonuses, rebates, credits, and discounts. In addition, the Company offers loyalty programs, such as OpenTable's loyalty program, where participating consumers may be awarded loyalty points on current transactions that can be redeemed in the future. The estimated value of the incentives granted and the loyalty points expected to be redeemed is generally recognized as a reduction of revenue at the time they are granted. At June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, liabilities of $91 million and $58 million, respectively, for incentives granted and $12 million and $13 million, respectively, for the loyalty programs, were included in "Accrued expenses and other current liabilities" in the Consolidated Balance Sheets.

3.    STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION
 
The Company maintains equity incentive plans that include broad-based grants of restricted stock units, performance share units granted to officers and certain other employees, and stock options granted to certain employees.

Restricted stock units and performance share units granted by the Company during the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 had an aggregate grant-date fair value of $13 million and $463 million, respectively. Restricted stock units and performance share units that vested during the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 had an aggregate fair value at vesting of $12 million and $375 million, respectively. At June 30, 2022, there was $725 million of estimated total future stock-based compensation expense related to unvested restricted stock units and performance share units to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 2.1 years, and $14 million of estimated total future stock-based compensation expense related to unvested stock options to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 0.7 year.

The following table summarizes the activity in restricted stock units for employees and non-employee directors during the six months ended June 30, 2022:

During the six months ended June 30, 2021, the Company modified the performance-based awards granted in 2018 and 2019 to its executive officers, to fix the number of shares to be issued, subject to other vesting conditions. The modification, in aggregate, resulted in additional stock-based compensation expense of $40 million, which was recognized over the remaining requisite service periods for the performance-based awards.
