Basis of Presentation
Liberty Latin America Ltd. (Liberty Latin America) is a registered company in Bermuda that primarily includes (i) Cable & Wireless Communications Limited (C&W) and its subsidiaries, (ii) VTR Finance B.V. (VTR Finance) and its subsidiaries, which include VTR.com SpA (VTR), (iii) Leo Cable LP (Leo Cable) and its subsidiaries, which includes Liberty Cablevision of Puerto Rico LLC (LCPR), collectively “Liberty Puerto Rico”, and (iv) LBT CT Communications, S.A. (a less than wholly-owned entity) and its subsidiary, Cabletica S.A. (Cabletica). C&W owns less than 100% of certain of its consolidated subsidiaries, including The Bahamas Telecommunications Company Limited (C&W Bahamas), Cable & Wireless Jamaica Limited (C&W Jamaica), and Cable & Wireless Panama, S.A. (C&W Panama). For information regarding the percentages of certain of our less than wholly-owned consolidated subsidiaries, see Part I, Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations - Overview.

We are an international provider of fixed, mobile and subsea telecommunications services. We provide residential and business-to-business (B2B) services in (i) over 20 countries, primarily in Latin America and the Caribbean, through C&W, (ii) Chile and Costa Rica, through VTR/Cabletica, and (iii) Puerto Rico, through Liberty Puerto Rico. Through our “Networks & LatAm” business, C&W also provides (i) B2B services in certain other countries in Latin America and the Caribbean and (ii) wholesale communication services over its subsea and terrestrial fiber optic cable networks that connect over 40 markets in that region.

In these notes, the terms “we,” “our,” “our company” and “us” may refer, as the context requires, to Liberty Latin America or collectively to Liberty Latin America and its subsidiaries. Unless otherwise indicated, ownership percentages and convenience translations into United States (U.S.) dollars are calculated as of March 31, 2020.

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (U.S. GAAP) and with the instructions to the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X for interim financial information. Accordingly, these financial statements do not include all of the information required by U.S. GAAP or Securities and Exchange Commission rules and regulations for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, these financial statements reflect all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of the results of operations for the interim periods presented. The results of operations for any interim period are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K (the 2019 Form 10-K).

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Estimates and assumptions are used in accounting for, among other things, the valuation of acquisition-related assets and liabilities, expected credit losses, programming and copyright expenses, deferred income taxes and related valuation allowances, loss contingencies, fair value measurements, impairment assessments, capitalization of internal costs associated with construction and installation activities, useful lives of long-lived assets and actuarial liabilities associated with certain benefit plans. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

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

Accounting Changes and Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Accounting Changes
ASU 2018-15
In August 2018, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2018-15, Intangibles—Goodwill and Other—Internal-Use Software—Customer’s Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That Is a Service Contract (ASU 2018-15). ASU 2018-15 provides additional guidance on ASU No. 2015-05, Intangibles—Goodwill and Other—Internal-Use Software—Customer’s Accounting for Fees Paid in a Cloud Computing Arrangement, which was issued to help entities evaluate the accounting for fees paid by a customer in a cloud computing arrangement (hosting arrangement) by providing guidance for determining when the arrangement includes a software license. ASU 2018-15 aligns the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred in a hosting arrangement that is a service contract with the

7


Liberty Latin America Ltd.
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements – (Continued)
March 31, 2020
(unaudited)






requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred to develop or obtain internal-use software (and hosting arrangements that include an internal-use software license). The guidance (i) provides criteria for determining which implementation costs to capitalize as an asset related to the service contract and which costs to expense, (ii) requires an entity (customer) to expense the capitalized implementation costs of a hosting arrangement that is a service contract over the term of the hosting arrangement and (iii) clarifies the presentation requirements for reporting such costs in the entity’s financial statements. We adopted ASU 2018-15 effective January 1, 2020 on a prospective basis for all implementation costs incurred after the date of adoption and it is not expected to have a material impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements.
ASU 2016-13
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses—Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments (ASU 2016-13), as amended by (i) ASU No. 2019-10, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326), Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815), and Leases (Topic 842): Effective Dates, which amended certain effective dates, and (ii) ASU No. 2019-11, Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses, which clarifies guidance around how to report expected recoveries. ASU 2016-13 replaces the incurred loss impairment methodology for recognizing credit losses with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses and requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information to inform credit loss estimates. We are required to use a forward-looking expected credit loss model for accounts receivables, loans and other financial instruments. We adopted ASU 2016-13 effective January 1, 2020 using a modified retrospective approach through a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings to align our credit loss methodology with the new standard. The comparative information has not been restated and continues to be reported under the accounting standards in effect for that period.
Under the new model, we segment our receivables, unbilled revenue and contract assets based on days past due and record an allowance for current expected credit losses using average rates applied against each account’s applicable aggregate balance for each aging bucket. We establish the average rates based on consideration of the actual credit loss experience over the prior 12-month period, recent collection trends, current economic conditions and reasonable expectations of future payment delinquency.
The cumulative effect of the changes to our condensed consolidated balance sheet as of January 1, 2020 was not material.
As of March 31, 2020, the impact of COVID-19, as defined and further described in note 8, has not had a material impact on our results of operations, financial position or cash flows. We will continue to actively monitor the impact of COVID-19 on our expected credit losses.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
ASU 2018-14
In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-14, Disclosure Framework-Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Defined Benefit Plans (ASU 2018-14), which removes and modifies certain existing disclosure requirements and adds new disclosure requirements related to employer sponsored defined benefit pension or other postretirement plans. ASU 2018-14 is effective for annual reporting periods after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. We are currently evaluating the effect that ASU 2018-14 will have on our disclosures.
ASU 2019-12
In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes (ASU 2019-12), which (i) simplifies the accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions for recognizing deferred taxes for investments, performing intraperiod allocations and calculating income taxes in interim periods, and (ii) reduces the complexity in certain areas of existing tax guidance, including the recognition of deferred taxes for tax goodwill and allocating taxes to members of a consolidated group. ASU 2019-12 is effective for annual reporting periods after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. Although we are currently evaluating the effect that ASU 2019-12 will have on our consolidated financial statements, we do not expect it will have a material impact.
ASU 2020-04
In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting (ASU 2020-04), which provides optional guidance for a limited time to ease the potential

accounting burden associated with transitioning away from reference rates, such as the London Inter-Bank Offered Rate (LIBOR), which regulators in the United Kingdom (U.K.) have announced will be phased out by the end of 2021. The expedients and exceptions provided by ASU 2020-04 are for the application of U.S. GAAP to contracts, hedging relationships and other transactions affected by the rate reform, and will not be available after December 31, 2022, other than for certain hedging relationships entered into before December 31, 2022. We do not currently expect that the phase out of LIBOR will have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
The following accounting policy reflects an update to the Summary of Significant Accounting Policies included in our 2019 Form 10-K resulting from the adoption of ASU 2016-13:
Trade Receivables
Our trade receivables are reported net of an allowance for credit losses. The allowance is established using our best estimates of current expected credit losses based upon, among other things, actual credit loss experience over the prior 12-month period, recent collection trends, prevailing and anticipated economic conditions and specific customer credit risk. Receivables outstanding greater than 30 days are considered past due and we generally write-off receivables after they become past due for 365 days, with the exception of certain amounts due from a single government. Concentration of credit risk with respect to trade receivables is limited due to the large number of customers and their dispersion across many different countries, with the exception of certain amounts due from a single government.
Changes in the allowance for credit losses are set forth below:

Acquisitions
Pending Acquisition
On October 9, 2019, Leo Cable and Liberty Latin America entered into a stock purchase agreement with certain subsidiaries of AT&T Inc. (AT&T) to acquire AT&T’s wireless and wireline operations in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands (the AT&T Acquisition) in an all-cash transaction. The AT&T Acquisition companies provide consumer mobile and B2B services in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, excluding DirecTV customers. The AT&T Acquisition is valued at an enterprise value of $1,950 million on a cash- and debt-free basis, subject to certain adjustments. We intend to finance this acquisition, including related fees and expenses, through a combination of net proceeds from the 2027 LPR Senior Secured Notes, the 2026 SPV Credit Facility and available liquidity. For further information about our debt and available liquidity, see note 9.
The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including reviews by the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Department of Justice (DOJ). We currently expect the transaction to close in the second half of 2020.
AT&T will provide ongoing support to the companies associated with the AT&T Acquisition under a transition services agreement (the AT&T TSA) for a period up to 36 months following the closing date of the acquisition. Services under the AT&T TSA include, but are not limited to, (i) wireless core, (ii) technology development, (iii) global technology operations, (iv) wireless engineering, (v) network infrastructure, (vi) supply chain and (vii) finance and sales operations. We may terminate any services under the AT&T TSA upon sixty business days’ notice to AT&T in accordance with the terms and conditions of the AT&T TSA.

2019 Acquisition
UTS. Effective March 31, 2019, we completed the acquisition of an 87.5% interest in United Telecommunication Services N.V. (UTS) for an initial cash purchase price of $162 million, which was subject to certain potential post-closing adjustments, based on an enterprise value of $189 million (the UTS Acquisition). As noted below, during the first quarter of 2020, the purchase price was reduced by $6 million related to certain post-closing working capital adjustments. During the third quarter of 2019, we increased our ownership interest in UTS from 87.5% to 100%. UTS provides fixed and mobile services to the island nations of Curaçao, St. Maarten, St. Martin, Bonaire, St. Barths, St. Eustatius and Saba. The UTS Acquisition was funded through a $170 million draw on the C&W Revolving Credit Facility, as defined in note 9.
We have accounted for the UTS Acquisition as a business combination using the acquisition method of accounting, whereby the total purchase price was allocated to the acquired identifiable net assets of UTS based on assessments of their respective fair values, and the excess of the purchase price over the fair values of these identifiable net assets was allocated to goodwill. A summary of the purchase price and opening balance sheet of UTS at the effective March 31, 2019 acquisition date is presented in the following table. The opening balance sheet presented below reflects our final purchase price allocation (in millions):

(a)
The goodwill recognized in connection with the UTS Acquisition is primarily attributable to (i) the ability to take advantage of UTS’s existing broadband communications and mobile networks to gain immediate access to potential customers, and (ii) synergies that are expected to be achieved through the integration of UTS with C&W’s existing business in Curacao.
(b)
Amount represents the estimated aggregate fair value of the noncontrolling interest in UTS as of March 31, 2019.
(c)
Excludes $3 million of direct acquisition costs incurred during 2019 and 2018. Direct acquisition costs are included in impairment, restructuring and other operating items, net, in our condensed consolidated statements of operations.
(d)
Pursuant to the purchase agreement, which permits certain post-closing working capital adjustments, the UTS Acquisition purchase price was reduced by $6 million during the first quarter of 2020. This amount was recorded as a receivable in other current assets in our condensed consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2020 and was received subsequent to March 31, 2020.
(5)
Derivative Instruments
In general, we seek to enter into derivative instruments to protect against (i) increases in the interest rates on our variable-rate debt and (ii) foreign currency movements, particularly with respect to borrowings that are denominated in a currency other than the functional currency of the borrowing entity. In this regard, through our subsidiaries, we have entered into various derivative instruments to manage interest rate exposure and foreign currency exposure with respect to the U.S. dollar ($), the Chilean peso (CLP), the Colombian peso (COP) and the Jamaican dollar (JMD). With the exception of certain foreign currency forward contracts, we do not apply hedge accounting to our derivative instruments. Accordingly, changes in the fair values of most of our derivative instruments are recorded in realized and unrealized gains or losses on derivative instruments in our condensed consolidated statements of operations.

Our current derivative assets, current derivative liabilities, long-term derivative assets and long-term derivative liabilities are included in other current assets, net, other accrued and current liabilities, other assets, net, and other long-term liabilities, respectively, in our condensed consolidated balance sheets.
(b)
We consider credit risk relating to our and our counterparties’ nonperformance in the fair value assessment of our derivative instruments. In all cases, the adjustments take into account offsetting liability or asset positions within each of our primary borrowing groups (see note 9). The changes in the credit risk valuation adjustments associated with our cross-currency and interest rate derivative contracts resulted in net gains of $33 million and $2 million during the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The gain during the 2020 period is primarily due to increased credit risk stemming from market reaction to the COVID-19 outbreak. These amounts are included in realized and unrealized gains (losses) on derivative instruments, net, in our condensed consolidated statements of operations. For further information regarding our fair value measurements, see note 6.
The derivative assets set forth in the table above exclude our Weather Derivatives, as defined below, as they are not accounted for at fair value. The Weather Derivatives are included in other current assets, net, in our condensed consolidated balance sheet.

Counterparty Credit Risk
We are exposed to the risk that the counterparties to the derivative instruments of our borrowing groups will default on their obligations to us. We manage these credit risks through the evaluation and monitoring of the creditworthiness of, and concentration of risk with, the respective counterparties. In this regard, credit risk associated with our derivative instruments is spread across a relatively broad counterparty base of banks and financial institutions. Collateral has not been posted by either party under the derivative instruments of our borrowing groups. At March 31, 2020, our exposure to counterparty credit risk included derivative assets with an aggregate fair value of $297 million.
Each of our borrowing groups has entered into derivative instruments under agreements with each counterparty that contain master netting arrangements that are applicable in the event of early termination by either party to such derivative instrument. The master netting arrangements under each of these master agreements are limited to the derivative instruments governed by the relevant master agreement within each individual borrowing group and are independent of similar arrangements of our other subsidiary borrowing groups.
Details of our Derivative Instruments
Cross-currency Derivative Contracts
As noted above, we are exposed to foreign currency exchange rate risk in situations where our debt is denominated in a currency other than the functional currency of the operations whose cash flows support our ability to service, repay or refinance such debt. Although we generally seek to match the denomination of our borrowings with the functional currency of the operations that are supporting the respective borrowings, market conditions or other factors may cause us to enter into borrowing arrangements that are not denominated in the functional currency of the underlying operations (unmatched debt). Our policy is generally to provide for an economic hedge against foreign currency exchange rate movements, whenever possible and when cost effective to do so, by using derivative instruments to synthetically convert unmatched debt into the applicable underlying currency. The following table sets forth the total notional amounts and the related weighted average remaining contractual lives of our cross-currency swap contracts at March 31, 2020:
