HILTON WORLDWIDE HOLDINGS INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited)

Note 1: Organization and Basis of Presentation

Organization

Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. (the "Parent," or together with its subsidiaries, "Hilton," "we," "us," "our" or the "Company"), a Delaware corporation, is one of the largest hospitality companies in the world and is engaged in managing, franchising, owning and leasing hotels and resorts, and licensing its intellectual property ("IP"), including brand names, trademarks and service marks. As of September 30, 2022, we managed, franchised, owned or leased 7,061 hotels and resorts, including timeshare properties, totaling 1,111,147 rooms in 123 countries and territories.

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021 have been prepared in accordance with United States ("U.S.") generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and are unaudited. We have condensed or omitted certain disclosures normally included in annual financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP but that are not required for interim reporting purposes. Although we believe the disclosures made are adequate to prevent the information presented from being misleading, these financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021.

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported and, accordingly, ultimate results could differ from those estimates. Additionally, interim results are not necessarily indicative of full year performance. In particular, the coronavirus ("COVID-19") pandemic (the "pandemic") had an adverse impact on certain of our results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021; however, our results experienced significant recovery during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 when compared to prior year periods. As such, these interim periods, as well as upcoming periods, may not be comparable to periods prior to the onset of the pandemic or to other periods affected by the pandemic, and are not indicative of future performance. Management has made estimates and judgments in light of these circumstances. In our opinion, the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, including normal recurring items, considered necessary for a fair presentation of the interim periods. All material intercompany transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Note 2: Revenues from Contracts with Customers

Contract Liabilities

The following table summarizes the activity of our contract liabilities, which are classified as components of current and long-term deferred revenues, during the nine months ended September 30, 2022:

____________
(1)Primarily related to Hilton Honors, our guest loyalty program, including co-branded credit card arrangements.
(2)Revenue recognized during the three months ended September 30, 2022 was $139 million. Revenue recognized during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 included a net increase in revenue of $7 million and $4 million, respectively, for Hilton Honors points redeemed in prior periods, as a result of a change to the estimated breakage of Hilton Honors points for which point expirations have been temporarily suspended.
(3)Primarily represents changes in estimated transaction prices for our performance obligations related to the issuance of Hilton Honors points, which had no effect on revenues.

Performance Obligations

As of September 30, 2022, we had deferred revenues for unsatisfied performance obligations consisting of: (i) $352 million related to Hilton Honors that will be recognized as revenue over approximately the next two years; (ii) $669 million related to application, initiation and other fees; and (iii) $30 million related to other obligations. These performance obligations are recognized as revenue as discussed in Note 2: "Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021.

Note 3: Consolidated Variable Interest Entities

As of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, we consolidated two variable interest entities ("VIEs") that each lease one hotel property. We consolidated these VIEs since we are the primary beneficiary, having the power to direct the activities that most significantly affect their economic performance. Additionally, we have the obligation to absorb losses and the right to receive benefits that could be significant to each of the VIEs individually. The assets of our consolidated VIEs are only available to settle the obligations of the respective entities, and the liabilities of the consolidated VIEs are non-recourse to us.

Our condensed consolidated balance sheets include the assets and liabilities of these entities, which primarily comprised the following:

____________
(1)Includes finance lease liabilities of $109 million and $153 million as of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2022, our consolidated VIEs borrowed a net 2.7 billion JPY (equivalent to $19 million as of September 30, 2022), with a weighted average interest rate of 1.22 percent as of September 30, 2022 and maturity dates ranging from May 2023 to February 2029; these borrowings are included in current maturities of long-term debt and long-term debt in our condensed consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2022.

As of December 31, 2021, one of our consolidated VIEs had drawn 500 million JPY (equivalent to $4 million as of December 31, 2021) under a revolving credit facility, which was fully repaid by July 2022.

restricted subsidiaries. As of September 30, 2022, we had $60 million of letters of credit outstanding under the Revolving Credit Facility, resulting in an available borrowing capacity of $1,690 million.

Note 6: Fair Value Measurements

____________
(1)Interest rate swaps are included in other non-current assets or other long-term liabilities in our condensed consolidated balance sheets depending on their value to us as of the balance sheet date. During the nine months ended September 30, 2022, one of the interest rate swaps that was outstanding as of December 31, 2021 matured. The remaining interest rate swap outstanding as of September 30, 2022 will mature in March 2026.
(2)The carrying values include the deduction for unamortized deferred financing costs and any applicable discounts. The carrying values and fair values exclude finance lease liabilities and other debt of consolidated VIEs.

We measure our interest rate swaps at fair value, which was determined using a discounted cash flow analysis that reflects the contractual terms of the interest rate swaps, including the period to maturity, and uses observable market-based inputs of similar instruments, including interest rate curves, as applicable.

The fair values of financial instruments not included in these tables are estimated to be equal to their carrying values as of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021.

Note 7: Income Taxes

At the end of each quarter, we estimate the effective income tax rate expected to be applied for the full year. The effective income tax rate is determined by the level and composition of income (loss) before income taxes, which is subject to federal, state, local and foreign income taxes.

In August 2022, the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (the "IRA") was signed into law in the U.S. We do not expect the IRA to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements, including our annual estimated effective tax rate.

Note 8: Share-Based Compensation

We recognized share-based compensation expense of $42 million and $52 million during the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, and $126 million and $144 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, which included amounts reimbursed by hotel owners.

Our share-based compensation primarily consists of awards that we grant to eligible employees under the Hilton 2017 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the "2017 Plan") and includes time-vesting restricted stock units ("RSUs"), nonqualified stock options
9


("options") and performance-vesting RSUs ("performance shares"). As of September 30, 2022, unrecognized compensation costs for unvested awards under the 2017 Plan were approximately $141 million, which are expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 1.7 years on a straight-line basis.

RSUs

During the nine months ended September 30, 2022, we granted 507,000 RSUs with a weighted average grant date fair value per share of $150.58, which vest in equal annual installments over two or three years from the date of grant.

Options

During the nine months ended September 30, 2022, we granted 318,000 options with an exercise price per share of $150.67, which vest in equal annual installments over three years from the date of grant and terminate 10 years from the date of grant or earlier if the individual’s service terminates under certain circumstances.

The grant date fair value per share of the options granted during the nine months ended September 30, 2022 was $51.15, which was determined using the Black-Scholes-Merton option-pricing model with the following assumptions:

Expected volatility(1)
33.28 %
Dividend yield(2)
0.41 %
Risk-free rate(3)
1.93 %
Expected term (in years)(4)
6.0
____________
(1)Estimated using a blended approach of historical and implied volatility. Historical volatility is based on the historical movement of Hilton's stock price for a look back period that corresponds to the expected term of the option.
(2)Estimated based on the expectation, at the date of grant, of the resumption of a quarterly $0.15 per share dividend, as well as our three-month average stock price.
(3)Based on the yields of U.S. Department of Treasury instruments with similar expected terms at the date of grant.
(4)Estimated using the midpoint of the vesting period and the contractual term of the options.

Performance Shares

During the nine months ended September 30, 2022, we granted 216,000 performance shares with a grant date fair value per share of $150.67. We recognize compensation expense based on the total number of performance shares that are expected to vest as determined by the projected achievement of each of the performance measures, which are estimated each reporting period and range from zero percent to 200 percent, with 100 percent being the target. As of September 30, 2022, we determined that all of the performance measures for the outstanding performance shares were probable of achievement, with the average of the achievement factors estimated to be between the target and maximum achievement percentages for the performance shares granted in 2020 and 2021 and at target for the performance shares granted in 2022.
