Part I
Item 1.    Business.
Overview
Hyatt Hotels Corporation is a global hospitality company with widely recognized, industry-leading brands and a tradition of innovation developed over our more than sixty-year history. In 2004, substantially all of the hospitality assets owned by Pritzker family business interests, including Hyatt Corporation and Hyatt International Corporation, were consolidated under a single entity whose name was subsequently changed to Global Hyatt Corporation. In 2009, Global Hyatt Corporation changed its name to Hyatt Hotels Corporation, and we completed our initial public offering ("IPO") of our Class A common stock.
We operate, manage, franchise, own, lease, develop, license, or provide services to a portfolio of properties, consisting of full service hotels, select service hotels, resorts, and other properties, including timeshare, fractional, and other forms of residential, vacation, and condominium ownership units. At December 31, 2020, our hotel portfolio consisted of 974 hotels (235,272 rooms). See Part II, Item 7, "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations—Overview" for a categorized breakdown of our portfolio. Our colleagues and hotel general managers are supported by our regional management teams, located in cities around the world, and our executive management team, headquartered in Chicago.
Our thirteen full service brands are: Park Hyatt, Miraval, Grand Hyatt, Alila, Andaz, The Unbound Collection by Hyatt, Destination, Hyatt Regency, Hyatt, Thompson Hotels, Hyatt Centric, Joie de Vivre, and tommie. Our select service brands are Caption by Hyatt, Hyatt House, and Hyatt Place. In addition, we participate in an unconsolidated hospitality venture with a Chinese hospitality company that owns the UrCove select service brand serving the upper-midscale market in Greater China. Our all-inclusive resort brands are Hyatt Ziva and Hyatt Zilara. We also manage, provide services to, or license our trademarks with respect to residential ownership units that are often adjacent to a Hyatt-branded full service hotel. We consult with third parties in the design and development of such mixed-use projects. We license certain of our trademarks with respect to vacation ownership units, which are part of Hyatt Residence Club. Additionally, we provide services and, in some cases, manage the rental programs and/or homeowner associations associated with condominium ownership units.
We primarily derive our revenues from owned and leased hotel operations, management of hotels, and licensing of our portfolio of brands to franchisees. For the year ended December 31, 2020, revenues totaled $2.1 billion, net loss attributable to Hyatt Hotels Corporation totaled $703 million, and Adjusted EBITDA totaled $(177) million. See Part II, Item 7, "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations—Key Business Metrics Evaluated by Management—Adjusted Earnings Before Interest Expense, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA") and EBITDA" for our definition of Adjusted EBITDA, why we present it, and for a reconciliation of our net income (loss) attributable to Hyatt Hotels Corporation to consolidated Adjusted EBITDA for the periods presented.
Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic
The global spread and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic are complex and continuously evolving, resulting in significant disruption to our business, the lodging and hospitality industries, and the global economy. The pandemic has led governments and other authorities around the world to impose measures intended to control its spread, including restrictions on large gatherings of people, travel bans, border closings, business closures and restrictions, quarantines, shelter-in-place orders, and social distancing measures. As a result, the COVID-19 pandemic and its consequences have significantly reduced global travel and demand for hotel rooms and travel experiences, and have had a material detrimental impact on global commercial activity across the travel, lodging, and hospitality industries, which has had, and is expected to continue to have, a material impact on our business, results of operations, cash flows, and financial condition.

We deliver distinctive experiences for our guests.

Table of Contents

Our Values
Respect, integrity, humility, empathy, creativity, and fun.
Our purpose, vision, mission, and values are brought to life by our colleagues, whom we refer to as the Hyatt family. We believe our colleagues around the world embody our purpose of caring for people, including one another, our guests and customers, property owners, and the communities in which our hotels operate. We are strongly committed to advancing care for all of our stakeholders and creating personal connections to increase loyalty and drive results. High levels of guest satisfaction lead to increased guest preference for our brands, which we believe results in a strengthened revenue base over the long term. We also believe engaged colleagues will enhance efficient operation of our properties, resulting in improved financial results. Sustained adherence to these principles is a basis for our brand reputation and strongly contributes to our growth as our diverse group of owners and developers choose to invest in our portfolio of properties around the world.
Our Competitive Strengths
We have significant competitive strengths that support our mission to deliver distinctive experiences for our guests and drive growth and create value for our customers, colleagues, and shareholders.
    World Class Brands.    Inspired by a deep understanding of guest needs, we have developed, and in some cases acquired, a global suite of distinct brands.
    Global Platform with Compelling Growth Potential.    Our existing global presence is widely distributed, and our hotels operate in some of the most populous urban centers around the globe, and we believe our existing hotels, located in key markets around the globe, provide us with a strong platform from which to selectively pursue new growth opportunities in markets where our brands are less prevalent.
    Deep Culture and Experienced Management Teams.    The Hyatt family is united by shared values, a single purpose, and a deep commitment to listening, understanding, and personalizing experiences for our guests and customers – all of which we believe increases loyalty, differentiates us from the competition, and drives business results.
    Strong Capital Base and Disciplined Financial Approach.    Our approach is to maintain appropriate levels of financial leverage through industry cycles and downturns. Current economic conditions brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic have negatively impacted our earnings, cash flow from operations, and leverage levels. As a result, we accessed debt capital markets to enhance our liquidity in order to support operations until demand returns and cash flow improves. At December 31, 2020, we had cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments of $1.9 billion and available borrowing capacity of approximately $1.5 billion. We believe our balance sheet strength uniquely positions us to successfully navigate the current economic environment and to take advantage of strategic opportunities to expand our presence and grow our business over time.
    Diverse Exposure to Hotel Management, Franchising, Ownership, and Development.    Our mix of managed, franchised, owned, and leased properties provides a broad and diverse base of revenues, profits, and cash flows and gives us flexibility to evaluate growth opportunities across our lines of business.
    High-Quality Owned Hotels are Located in Desirable Markets and are a Source of Capital for New Growth Investments.    We believe our owned assets provide us the opportunity to unlock additional shareholder value through targeted dispositions that provide cash proceeds to fund additional strategic investments to expand our presence or provide incremental return of capital to shareholders. In 2018, we realized $1.5 billion of proceeds from the disposition of owned assets, completing our initial sell-down commitment. In March 2019, we committed to an additional $1.5 billion reduction of our owned real estate portfolio over a three-year period, and at December 31, 2020, we have realized proceeds of approximately $1 billion under this commitment.
Our Business Strategy
Despite the disruptive impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business and the hospitality industry, we remain committed to our long-term strategy. Our strategy to drive long-term sustainable growth and create value for guests, customers, colleagues, owners, and shareholders is focused on the following areas:
Maximize Our Core Business: We continue to grow and operate our core business with excellence in order to be best-in-class while aiming to generate profits to fuel our growth.

Table of Contents

Integrate New Growth Platforms: We seek to identify and integrate new opportunities to advance care for our guests and provide additional paths for growth.
Optimize Capital Deployment: We take a comprehensive and disciplined approach to our deployment of capital to expand our management and franchising business, invest in new growth platforms, and return capital to our shareholders.

In addition, the license fees we receive from Hyatt Residence Club are now reported within our Americas management and franchising segment due to changes in the strategic oversight for these license agreements. For information regarding our four reportable business segments, revenues, and geographical information, see Part IV, Item 15, "Exhibits and Financial Statement Schedule—Note 19 to our Consolidated Financial Statements."
Management Agreements
We manage hotels worldwide pursuant to management agreements.
Hotel Management Agreements Fees
Our hotel management agreements typically provide for a two-tiered fee structure that compensates us both for the volume of business we generate for the property as well as for the profitability of hotel operations. In these two-tier fee structures, our base compensation is a base fee that is usually an agreed-upon percentage of gross revenues from hotel operations. In addition, we are incentivized to improve hotel profitability through an incentive fee that is typically calculated as a percentage of a hotel profitability measure, such as gross operating profit, adjusted profit, or the amount by which gross operating profit or adjusted profit exceeds a specified threshold. Outside of the United States, some management agreements have fees more dependent on hotel profitability measures either through a single management fee structure where the entire fee is based on a profitability measure or because our two-tier fee structure is more heavily weighted toward the incentive fee than the base fee.

EAME/SW Asia19 years33 years
ASPAC18 years19 years
Some of our hotel management agreements grant early termination rights to hotel owners upon the occurrence of a stated event, such as the sale of the hotel or our failure to meet a specified performance test (any such event a "termination event"). In the case of a termination event, some of our management agreements grant hotel owners the right to terminate the hotel management agreement and convert the hotel to a Hyatt franchise. Generally, termination rights under performance tests are based upon the property's individual performance or its performance when compared to a specified set of competitive hotels branded by other hotel operators or both. These termination rights are usually triggered if we do not meet the performance tests over multiple years. We generally have the option to cure performance failures by paying an amount equal to the shortfall, but in some cases our cure rights may be limited, and our failure to meet a performance test may result in the termination of our hotel management agreement. Certain of our management agreements allow for a termination right after a multi-year lock-out period and are subject to a termination fee generally based upon a formula related to the lost fees.
Many of our hotel management agreements, particularly in the United States, are subordinated to mortgages or other secured indebtedness of the owners. In most cases, our subordination agreements with lenders recognize our right to continue to manage the hotels under the terms set forth in the hotel management agreements if the lenders take possession of the hotel property through foreclosure or similar means.
Franchise Agreements
Our franchise agreements grant our franchisees the limited right to use our name, marks, and system in the operation of franchised Grand Hyatt, Hyatt Regency, Hyatt, Hyatt Ziva, Hyatt Zilara, Thompson Hotels, Hyatt Centric, Caption by Hyatt, Hyatt House, and Hyatt Place properties, and franchised properties operated under distinct tradenames and affiliated with The Unbound Collection by Hyatt, Destination Hotels, and Joie de Vivre. We do not participate in the management of our franchised hotels; however, franchisees are required to operate franchised hotels consistent with our brand standards. We approve the plans for, and the location of, franchised hotels and review the operation of these hotels to ensure our standards are maintained.
Fees
In general, our franchisees pay us an initial application fee and/or a design services fee as well as ongoing royalty fees, the amount of which depends on the brand under which the franchised property is licensed. We franchise full service hotels under the Grand Hyatt, Hyatt Regency, Hyatt, Thompson Hotels, and Hyatt Centric brands, all-inclusive resorts under the Hyatt Ziva and Hyatt Zilara brands, and full service hotels under distinct tradenames and affiliated with The Unbound Collection by Hyatt, Destination Hotels, and Joie de Vivre brands. We franchise select service hotels under the Caption by Hyatt, Hyatt House, and Hyatt Place brands. Our Grand Hyatt, Hyatt Regency, Hyatt, and Thompson Hotels franchisees typically pay us franchise fees calculated as 6% of gross room revenues and 3% of gross food and beverage revenues. Our Hyatt Centric franchisees typically pay us franchise fees calculated as 5% of gross room revenues. The Unbound Collection by Hyatt, Destination Hotels, and Joie de Vivre franchisees typically pay us continuing franchise fees calculated as 7% of gross room revenues generated through Hyatt reservation and booking channels. In some cases, typically for new hotel development

franchise agreements, our full service continuing franchise fees begin at a lower percentage than listed above and escalate in the initial few years of the term. Caption by Hyatt, Hyatt House, and Hyatt Place franchisees, typically for new hotel development franchise agreements, pay continuing franchise fees calculated as a percentage of gross room revenues, which typically are 3% in the first year of operations, 4% in the second year, and 5% through the remainder of the term. Our all-inclusive franchisees typically pay us franchise fees calculated as either 2.75% or 3.25% of gross revenues. Application fees are typically $75,000 plus $500 per guest room in excess of 150 for our Hyatt House and Hyatt Place hotels, $95,000 plus $500 per guest room in excess of 200 for our Caption by Hyatt hotels, the greater of $100,000 or $400 per guest room for our Hyatt Regency and Grand Hyatt hotels, and the greater of $100,000 or $300 per guest room for our other full service hotels and all-inclusive resorts. In some circumstances, we have negotiated other fee arrangements, and in some regions outside of the United States, we typically negotiate alternative application fee arrangements.
In addition to our franchise fees, we charge full service and select service hotels and all-inclusive resort franchisees for certain services arranged and, in most cases, provided by us. These activities may include centralized reservation functions, certain sales functions, technology, national advertising, certain marketing and promotional services, as well as various revenue management services.
Terms and Renewals
The standard term of our franchise agreements is typically 20 years, with one 10 year renewal option exercisable by the franchisee, assuming the franchisee has complied with franchise agreement requirements and standards. Certain of our franchise agreements have renewal options at Hyatt's option, generally triggered if the franchisee has failed to exercise its renewal option. Certain of our franchise agreements have renewal options upon the mutual agreement of the parties. We have the right to terminate franchise agreements upon specified events of default, including non-payment of fees and non-compliance with brand standards. In the event of early termination for any reason, our franchise agreements typically set forth liquidated damages our franchisees must pay to us upon termination. The bankruptcy of a franchisee or lender foreclosure could result in the termination of the franchise agreement. The average remaining base term of our franchise agreements for our select service and full service hotels in all regions (other than those currently under development) is approximately 16 years, assuming no renewal options are exercised by either party. Including exercise of extension options in Hyatt's sole discretion, the average remaining term of our franchise agreements for our select service hotels and full service hotels in all regions (other than those currently under development) is approximately 17 years.
Other Service Agreements
We provide services under the Destination Residential Management business pursuant to rental management agreements with individual property owners and/or homeowner associations whereby the property owners and/or homeowner associations participate in our rental program. The agreements typically provide for our receipt of a percentage split of the total gross revenue generated from a property under the rental program, and expenses of the property are paid from such split. The agreement terms are typically one or two years. Additionally, we provide association management services to the various homeowner associations where we manage the properties for a fee.
Sales, Marketing, and Reservations and Global Contact Centers
Sales
We deploy a global sales team as well as regional sales teams in our Americas, ASPAC, and EAME/SW Asia regions. The global team is responsible for our largest and most significant accounts doing business in all three regions. The regional teams are responsible for large accounts that typically do business within one region, but at multiple hotels within the region. The global and regional sales teams coordinate efforts with the hotel sales teams. The in-house sales colleagues are focused on local and regional business opportunities, as well as securing business generated from our key global and regional accounts.
Our corporate sales organizations are focused on growing market share with key accounts, identifying new business opportunities, and maximizing our local customer base. Our key accounts consist of major corporations; national, state, and regional associations; specialty market accounts (social, government, military, educational, religious, and fraternal); travel agency and luxury organizations; and a broad and diverse group of individual consumers. Our global and regional sales teams target multiple brands to key customer accounts within these groups. No single customer is material to our business. Our global and regional teams consist of over 125 colleagues at global and regional sales offices around the world, who are focused on group business, corporate and leisure traveler accounts, and travel agencies.
Sales colleagues at our regional offices and at many of our full service hotels use our proprietary sales tool to manage the group rooms forecast, maintain an inventory of definite and tentative group rooms booked each day, streamline the process of checking guest room availability and rate quotes, and determine meeting room availability.
