as well as other statements regarding our future operations, financial condition, growth prospects and business strategies.
We operate in very competitive and rapidly-changing environments, and new risks emerge from time-to-time. It is not possible for us to predict all risks, nor can we assess the impact of all factors on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements we may make. In light of these risks, uncertainties and assumptions, the forward-looking events discussed in this Quarterly Report may not occur, and actual results could differ materially and adversely from those implied in our forward-looking statements.
You should not rely upon forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. Although we believe the expectations reflected in our forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee the future results, levels of activity, performance or events and circumstances described in the forward-looking statements will be achieved or occur. Neither we, nor any other person, assume responsibility for the accuracy and completeness of the forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements for any reason after the date of this Quarterly Report to conform such statements to actual results or to changes in our expectations, except as required by law. Given these risks and uncertainties, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements.

GoDaddy Inc.
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (unaudited)
(In millions, except shares in thousands and per share amounts)

1.    Organization and Background
Organization
We are the sole managing member of Desert Newco, and as a result, we consolidate its financial results and report non-controlling interests representing the economic interests held by other members. The calculation of non-controlling interests excludes any net income attributable directly to GoDaddy Inc. As of June 30, 2022, we owned more than 99.8% of Desert Newco.
Basis of Presentation
Our financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP) and include our accounts and the accounts of our subsidiaries. All material intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.
Our interim financial statements are unaudited, and in our opinion, include all adjustments of a normal recurring nature necessary for the fair presentation of the periods presented. The results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for any subsequent period or for the year ending December 31, 2022.
These financial statements should be read in conjunction with our audited financial statements and related notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, as superseded by, and solely to the extent set forth in, our Current Report on Form 8-K filed on July 15, 2022 (collectively, the 2021 Form 10-K).
Prior Period Reclassifications
In the first quarter of 2022, we revised the presentation of revenue in our statements of operations, as described in Note 2. Reclassifications of certain other immaterial prior period amounts have been made to conform to the current period presentation.
7

Use of Estimates
GAAP requires us to make estimates and assumptions affecting amounts reported in our financial statements. We periodically evaluate our estimates and adjust prospectively, if necessary. We believe our estimates and assumptions are reasonable; however, actual results may differ.
Segments
Beginning in the first quarter of 2022, we revised the presentation of segment information to reflect changes in the way we manage and evaluate our business. As such, we now report our operating results through two reportable segments: Applications and Commerce (A&C) and Core Platform (Core), as further discussed in Note 14. Accordingly, we have revised our segment information for the comparable prior year period.
2.    Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Property and Equipment
Property and equipment, net by geography was as follows:
 June 30, 2022December 31, 2021
U.S.$165.2 $162.6 
France26.1 23.8 
All other international31.0 33.6 
$222.3 $220.0 
No other international country represented more than 10% of property and equipment, net in any period presented.
Derivative Financial Instruments
We are exposed to changes in foreign currency exchange rates, primarily relating to intercompany debt, the net assets of our foreign operations and sales transactions denominated in currencies other than the U.S. dollar, as well as to changes in interest rates as a result of our variable-rate debt. Consequently, we use derivative financial instruments to manage and mitigate such risks. We do not enter into derivative transactions for speculative or trading purposes.
We utilize a variety of derivative instruments and expect that each derivative instrument qualifying for hedge accounting will be highly effective at reducing the risk associated with the exposure being hedged. For each derivative instrument designated as a hedge, we formally document, at inception, the related risk management strategy and objective, including identification of the hedging instrument, the hedged item and the risk of exposure. In addition, we formally assess, both at the inception and at least quarterly thereafter, whether the financial instruments used in the hedging transactions are effective at offsetting changes in either the fair values or cash flows of the relating underlying exposures.
Our derivative instruments are recorded at fair value on a gross basis. For cash flow reporting purposes, proceeds received or amounts paid upon the settlement of a derivative instrument are classified in the same manner as the related item being hedged.
Cash Flow Hedges
We utilize a variety of derivative instruments designated as cash flow hedges:
