Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (unaudited)
 
1. Accounting Policies
 
These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) applicable to interim financial statements. While these statements reflect all normal recurring adjustments that are, in the opinion of management, necessary for fair presentation of the results of the interim period, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP) for complete financial statements. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statement disclosures in our 2017 Form 10-K.

We use the same accounting policies in preparing quarterly and annual financial statements. Certain prior-year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation. Note 2 provides information about our adoption of new accounting standards for revenue recognition, leases, and pensions. Unless otherwise noted, amounts presented within the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements refer to our continuing operations.
 
We operate as a single segment that includes all of our continuing operations, which are designed to enable guests to purchase products seamlessly in stores or through our digital channels. Virtually all of our revenues are generated in the United States. The vast majority of our long-lived assets are located within the United States.

Due to the seasonal nature of our business, quarterly revenues, expenses, earnings, and cash flows are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year.

2. Accounting Standards Adopted

Revenue Recognition

We adopted Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-09—Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), as of February 4, 2018, using the full retrospective approach. The new standard did not materially affect our consolidated net earnings, financial position, or cash flows. The new standard resulted in minor changes to the timing of recognition of revenues for certain promotional gift card programs.

For the three and nine months ended October 28, 2017, we reclassified profit-sharing income under our credit card program agreement to Other Revenue from Selling, General and Administrative Expenses (SG&A). In addition, we reclassified certain advertising, rental, and other miscellaneous revenues, none of which was individually significant, from Sales and SG&A to Other Revenues.

Leases

We adopted ASU No. 2016-02—Leases (Topic 842), as of February 4, 2018, using the modified retrospective approach. The modified retrospective approach provides a method for recording existing leases at adoption and in comparative periods that approximates the results of a full retrospective approach. In addition, we elected the package of practical expedients permitted under the transition guidance within the new standard, which among other things, allowed us to carry forward the historical lease classification. We also elected the practical expedient related to land easements, allowing us to carry forward our accounting treatment for land easements on existing agreements.
In addition, we elected the hindsight practical expedient to determine the lease term for existing leases. Our election of the hindsight practical expedient resulted in the shortening of lease terms for certain existing leases and the useful lives of corresponding leasehold improvements. In our application of hindsight, we evaluated the performance of the leased stores and the associated markets in relation to our overall real estate strategies, which resulted in the determination that most renewal options would not be reasonably certain in determining the expected lease term.

Adoption of the new standard resulted in the recording of additional net lease assets and lease liabilities of approximately $1.3 billion and $1.4 billion, respectively, as of February 4, 2018. The difference between the additional lease assets and lease liabilities, net of the deferred tax impact, was recorded as an adjustment to retained earnings. The standard did not materially impact our consolidated net earnings and had no impact on cash flows.


6




Pensions

In the first quarter of 2018, we adopted ASU No. 2017-07—Compensation – Retirement Benefits (Topic 715) using the full retrospective approach. The new standard requires employers to disaggregate and present separately the current service cost component from the other components of net benefit cost within the Consolidated Statement of Operations. For the three and nine months ended October 28, 2017, we reclassified $(15) million and $(44) million, respectively, of non-service cost components of net benefit cost to Net Other (Income) / Expense from SG&A on our Consolidated Statements of Operations.

3. Revenues

General merchandise sales represent the vast majority of our revenues. We also earn revenues from a variety of other sources, most notably credit card profit sharing income from our arrangement with TD Bank Group (TD).

During the first quarter of 2018, we reclassified certain income streams, including credit card profit sharing income, to Other Revenue on our Consolidated Statements of Operations and conformed prior periods. Note 2 provides additional information.

Merchandise sales – We record almost all retail store revenues at the point of sale. Digital channel originated sales may include shipping revenue and are recorded upon delivery to the guest or upon guest pickup at the store. Total revenues do not include sales tax because we are a pass-through conduit for collecting and remitting sales taxes. Generally, guests may return national brand merchandise within 90 days of purchase and owned and exclusive brands within one year of purchase. Sales are recognized net of expected returns, which we estimate using historical return patterns and our expectation of future returns. As of November 3, 2018, February 3, 2018, and October 28, 2017, the accrual for estimated returns was $125 million, $110 million, and $127 million, respectively. We have not historically had material adjustments to our returns estimates.
Under certain vendor arrangements the purchase and sale of inventory is virtually simultaneous. We record revenue and related costs gross for the vast majority of these arrangements, with approximately 5 percent of consolidated sales made under such arrangements. We concluded that we are the principal in these transactions for a number of reasons, most notably because we 1) control the overall economics of the transactions, including setting the sales price and realizing the majority of cash flows from the sale, 2) control the relationship with the customer, and 3) are responsible for fulfilling the promise to provide goods to the customer.

Revenue from Target gift card sales is recognized upon gift card redemption, which is typically within one year of issuance. Our gift cards do not expire. Based on historical redemption rates, a small and relatively stable percentage of gift cards will never be redeemed, referred to as "breakage." Estimated breakage revenue is recognized over time in proportion to actual gift card redemptions.

Guests receive a 5 percent discount on virtually all purchases and receive free shipping at Target.com when they use their Target-branded credit or debit card (REDcards). The 5 percent discount is included as a sales reduction in our Consolidated Statements of Operations and was $224 million and $663 million for the three and nine months ended November 3, 2018, respectively, and $215 million and $639 million for the three and nine months ended October 28, 2017, respectively.
Credit card profit sharing – We receive payments under a credit card program agreement with TD. Under the agreement, we receive a percentage of the profits generated by the Target Credit Card and Target MasterCard receivables in exchange for performing account servicing and primary marketing functions. TD underwrites, funds, and owns Target Credit Card and Target MasterCard receivables, controls risk management policies, and oversees regulatory compliance.

5. Property and Equipment

We review long-lived assets for impairment when events or changes in circumstances—such as a decision to relocate or close a store or distribution center, discontinue projects, or make significant software changes—indicate that the asset’s carrying value may not be recoverable. We recognized no impairment losses during the three months ended November 3, 2018, and $85 million of impairment losses during the nine months ended November 3, 2018, primarily resulting from planned store closures. We recognized impairment losses of $1 million and $89 million during the three and nine months ended October 28, 2017, respectively, primarily resulting from planned or completed store closures and supply chain changes. The impairments are recorded in Selling, General and Administrative Expenses on the Consolidated Statements of Operations.

6. Commercial Paper and Long-Term Debt

During the three and nine months ended November 3, 2018, we issued no new long-term debt and did not repurchase existing long-term debt before its maturity.

In October 2017, we issued unsecured fixed rate debt of $750 million at 3.9 percent that matures in November 2047. During the three months ended October 28, 2017, we repurchased $344 million of debt before its maturity at a market value of $463 million. We recognized a loss on early retirement of approximately $123 million, which was recorded in Net Interest Expense in our Consolidated Statements of Operations.

We obtain short-term financing from time to time under our commercial paper program. For the three and nine months ended November 3, 2018, the maximum amount outstanding was $490 million and $658 million, respectively, and the average daily amount outstanding was $35 million and $54 million, respectively, at a weighted average annual interest rate of 2.2 percent and 1.9 percent, respectively. As of November 3, 2018, $490 million was outstanding and is classified within Current Portion of Long-Term Debt and Other Borrowings on our Consolidated Statement of Financial Position. No balances were outstanding at any time during the nine months ended October 28, 2017.

7. Derivative Financial Instruments
 
Our derivative instruments primarily consist of interest rate swaps, which we use to mitigate interest rate risk. As a result of our use of derivative instruments, we have counterparty credit exposure to large global financial institutions. We monitor this concentration of counterparty credit risk on an ongoing basis. Note 4 provides the fair value and classification of these instruments.
 
During the nine months ended November 3, 2018, we entered into two interest rate swaps, each with a notional amount of $250 million, under which we pay a variable rate and receive a fixed rate. We designated these swaps as fair value hedges. With the addition of these swaps, as of November 3, 2018, four interest rate swaps with notional amounts totaling $1,500 million were designated as fair value hedges. As of October 28, 2017, two interest rate swaps with notional amounts totaling $1,000 million were designated as fair value hedges. No ineffectiveness was recognized during the three and nine months ended November 3, 2018 or October 28, 2017.

We recorded expense of $1 million and $2 million during the three and nine months ended November 3, 2018, and income of $2 million and $8 million during the three and nine months ended October 28, 2017, respectively, within Net Interest Expense on our Consolidated Statements of Operations related to periodic payments, valuation adjustments, and amortization of gains or losses on our interest rate swaps.
  
8. Leases

We lease certain retail stores, warehouses, distribution centers, office space, land, and equipment. Leases with an initial term of 12 months or less are not recorded on the balance sheet; we recognize lease expense for these leases on a straight-line basis over the lease term.
Most leases include one or more options to renew, with renewal terms that can extend the lease term from one to 50 years or more. The exercise of lease renewal options is at our sole discretion. Certain leases also include options to purchase the leased property. The depreciable life of assets and leasehold improvements are limited by the expected lease term, unless there is a transfer of title or purchase option reasonably certain of exercise.
Certain of our lease agreements include rental payments based on a percentage of retail sales over contractual levels and others include rental payments adjusted periodically for inflation. Our lease agreements do not contain any material residual value guarantees or material restrictive covenants.

13




We rent or sublease certain real estate to third parties. Our sublease portfolio consists mainly of operating leases with CVS Pharmacy Inc. for space within our stores.

For the three and nine months ended November 3, 2018, our income tax rate was 13.6 percent and 19.9 percent, respectively, compared with 22.2 percent and 30.5 percent for the three and nine months ended October 28, 2017, respectively. For the three and nine months ended November 3, 2018, the effective tax rate reflects benefits of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the Tax Act), including the lower federal statutory rate of 21 percent and measurement period adjustments recorded during the third quarter, and to a lesser extent, discrete tax benefits. For the three and nine months ended October 28, 2017, the effective tax rate reflects

15




a federal statutory rate of 35 percent offset by prior-period discrete tax benefits of $55 million and $56 million, respectively, primarily related to our global sourcing operations.

In 2017, we recorded provisional amounts for certain income tax effects of the Tax Act for which the accounting under ASC Topic 740, Income Taxes, was incomplete but a reasonable estimate could be determined. During the third quarter of 2018, we recorded adjustments to previously-recorded provisional amounts related to the Tax Act, resulting in a $39 million tax benefit, primarily related to the remeasurement of deferred tax assets and liabilities. During the fourth quarter, we will complete our Tax Act accounting. We do not expect any material adjustments.

Beginning with the first quarter of 2018, we are subject to a new tax on global intangible low-taxed income that is imposed on foreign earnings. We have made an accounting election to record this tax as a period cost and thus have not adjusted any of the deferred tax assets or liabilities of our foreign subsidiaries for the new tax. Impacts of this new tax were immaterial and are included in our provision for income taxes for the three and nine months ended November 3, 2018.

Note: Activity related to the third quarter 2018 and 2017 accelerated share repurchases (ASRs) described below is omitted because the transactions were not fully settled as of November 3, 2018 and October 28, 2017, respectively.

During the third quarter of 2018, we entered into an ASR to repurchase $325 to $450 million of our common stock under the existing $5 billion share repurchase program. Under the agreement, we paid $450 million and received an initial delivery of 3.5 million shares, which were retired, resulting in a $287 million reduction to Retained Earnings. As of November 3, 2018, $163 million is included in the Consolidated Statement of Financial Position as a reduction to Additional Paid-in Capital.

During the third quarter of 2017, we entered into an ASR to repurchase $150 to $250 million of our common stock under the existing $5 billion share repurchase program. Under the agreement, we paid $250 million and received an initial delivery of 2.5 million shares, which were retired. Upon settlement in the fourth quarter of 2017, we received an additional 0.3 million shares, which were retired, and $89 million for the remaining amount not settled in shares. In total, we repurchased 2.8 million shares under the ASR for a total cash investment of $161 million ($57.78 per share). Within the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows, we reclassified $139 million related to the initial share delivery from the ASR entered into during the third quarter 2017 from Repurchase of Stock to Accelerated Share Repurchase Pending Final Settlement to conform to the current year presentation.
