NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
Note 1 Description of Business and Basis of Presentation

Zebra Technologies Corporation and its subsidiaries (“Zebra” or the “Company”) is a global leader providing innovative Enterprise Asset Intelligence (“EAI”) solutions in the automatic identification and data capture solutions industry. We design, manufacture, and sell a broad range of products and solutions, including cloud-based software subscriptions, that capture and move data. We also provide a full range of services, including maintenance, technical support, repair, managed and professional services. End-users of our products, solutions and services include those in retail and e-commerce, manufacturing, transportation and logistics, healthcare, public sector, and other industries. We provide our products, solutions and services globally through a direct sales force and an extensive network of channel partners.

Management prepared these unaudited interim consolidated financial statements according to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission for interim financial information and notes. As permitted under Article 10 of Regulation S-X and the instructions of Form 10-Q, these consolidated financial statements do not include all the information and notes required by United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) for complete financial statements, although management believes that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information not misleading. These interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023.

In the opinion of the Company, these interim financial statements include all adjustments (of a normal, recurring nature) necessary to fairly present its Consolidated Balance Sheet as of March 30, 2024, the Consolidated Statements of Operations, Comprehensive Income, Stockholders’ Equity, and Cash Flows for the three months ended March 30, 2024 and April 1, 2023. These results, however, are not necessarily indicative of the results expected for the full fiscal year ending December 31, 2024.

Note 2 Significant Accounting Policies

For a discussion of our significant accounting policies, see Note 2, Significant Accounting Policies within Part II, Item 8. “Financial Statements and Supplementary Data” in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023. There have been no changes to our significant accounting policies since our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023.

Note 3 Revenues

The Company recognizes revenue to depict the transfer of goods, solutions or services to a customer at an amount that reflects the consideration which it expects to receive for providing those goods, solutions or services.

Revenues for tangible products are generally recognized upon shipment, whereas revenues for services and solution offerings are generally recognized over time by using an output or time-based method, assuming all other criteria for revenue recognition have been met. Revenues for software are recognized either upon delivery or over time using a time-based method, depending on how control is transferred to the customer. In cases where a bundle of products, services, solutions and/or software are delivered to the customer, judgment is required to select the method of progress which best reflects the transfer of control.

Disaggregation of Revenue
The following table presents our Net sales disaggregated by product category for each of our segments (in millions):

Performance Obligations
The Company’s remaining performance obligations relate to repair and support services, as well as software solutions. The aggregated transaction price allocated to remaining performance obligations for arrangements with an original term exceeding one year was $1,126 million and $1,127 million, inclusive of deferred revenue, as of March 30, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively. On average, remaining performance obligations as of March 30, 2024 and December 31, 2023 are expected to be recognized over a period of approximately two years.

Contract Balances
Progress on satisfying performance obligations under contracts with customers related to billed revenues is reflected on the Consolidated Balance Sheets in Accounts receivable, net. Progress on satisfying performance obligations under contracts with customers related to unbilled revenues (“contract assets”) is reflected on the Consolidated Balance Sheets as Prepaid expenses and other current assets for revenues expected to be billed within the next twelve months, and Other long-term assets for revenues expected to be billed thereafter. The total contract asset balances were $17 million and $16 million as of March 30, 2024 and December 31, 2023. These contract assets result from timing differences between billing and satisfying performance obligations, as well as the impact from the allocation of the transaction price among performance obligations for contracts that include multiple performance obligations. Contract assets are evaluated for impairment and no impairment losses have been recognized during the three months ended March 30, 2024 and April 1, 2023, respectively.

Deferred revenue on the Consolidated Balance Sheets consists of payments and billings in advance of our performance. The combined short-term and long-term deferred revenue balances were $760 million and $770 million as of March 30, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively. During the three months ended March 30, 2024, the Company recognized $146 million in revenue, which was previously included in the beginning balance of deferred revenue as of December 31, 2023. During the three months ended April 1, 2023, the Company recognized $135 million in revenue, which was previously included in the beginning balance of deferred revenue as of December 31, 2022.

Note 5 Investments

The carrying value of the Company’s long-term investments, which are included in Other long-term assets on the Consolidated Balance Sheets, was $113 million as of both March 30, 2024 and December 31, 2023.

The Company did not make any payments for the purchase of long-term investments during the three months ended March 30, 2024. During the three months ended April 1, 2023, the Company paid $1 million for the purchase of long-term investments. Net gains and losses related to the Company’s long-term investments are included within Other expense, net on the Consolidated Statements of Operations and were not significant for the three months ended March 30, 2024 or April 1, 2023.

Note 6 Exit and Restructuring Costs
Total charges associated with the 2022 Productivity Plan and the U.S. voluntary retirement plan, which was completed in 2023, were $120 million incurred to date, including $10 million recorded during the three months ended March 30, 2024. The Company expects to incur an additional $10 million in the current year associated with its 2022 Productivity Plan. The costs of these plans are classified within Exit and restructuring on the Consolidated Statements of Operations. The Company’s remaining payment obligations of $12 million, are reflected within Accrued liabilities on the Consolidated Balance Sheets.

The Company’s liability associated with Exit and restructuring was:

Note 7 Fair Value Measurements

Financial assets and liabilities are measured using inputs from three levels of the fair value hierarchy in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements. Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. ASC Topic 820 established a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes observable and unobservable inputs used to measure fair value into the following three broad levels:
Level 1: Quoted prices in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for identical assets or liabilities. The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to Level 1 inputs (e.g. U.S. Treasuries and money market funds).
Level 2: Observable prices that are based on inputs not quoted in active markets but corroborated by market data.
Level 3: Unobservable inputs are used when little or no market data is available. The fair value hierarchy gives the lowest priority to Level 3 inputs.
In determining fair value, the Company utilizes valuation techniques that maximize the use of observable inputs. In addition, the Company considers counterparty credit risk in the assessment of fair value.
The Company’s financial assets and liabilities carried at fair value as of March 30, 2024, are classified below (in millions):

(1)The fair value of the foreign exchange contracts is calculated as follows:
Fair value of forward contracts associated with forecasted sales hedges is calculated using the period-end exchange rate adjusted for current forward points.
10

Fair value of hedges against net assets denominated in foreign currencies is calculated at the period-end exchange rate adjusted for current forward points unless the hedge has been traded but not settled at period-end (Level 2). If this is the case, the fair value is calculated at the rate at which the hedge is being settled (Level 1).

(2)The fair value of forward interest rate swaps is based upon a valuation model that uses relevant observable market inputs at the quoted intervals, such as forward yield curves, and is adjusted for the Company’s credit risk and the interest rate swap terms.

Note 8 Derivative Instruments

In the normal course of business, the Company is exposed to global market risks, including the effects of changes in foreign currency exchange rates and interest rates. The Company uses derivative instruments to manage its exposure to such risks and may elect to designate certain derivatives as hedging instruments under ASC Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging (“ASC 815”). The Company formally documents all relationships between designated hedging instruments and hedged items as well as its risk management objectives and strategies for undertaking hedge transactions. The Company does not hold or issue derivatives for trading or speculative purposes.

In accordance with ASC 815, the Company recognizes derivative instruments as either assets or liabilities on the Consolidated Balance Sheets and measures them at fair value. The following table presents the fair value of its derivative instruments (in millions):

Credit and Market Risk Management
Financial instruments, including derivatives, expose the Company to counterparty credit risk of nonperformance and to market risk related to currency exchange rate and interest rate fluctuations. The Company manages its exposure to counterparty credit risk by establishing minimum credit standards, diversifying its counterparties, and monitoring its concentrations of credit. The Company’s counterparties are commercial banks with expertise in derivative financial instruments. The Company evaluates the impact of market risk on the fair value and cash flows of its derivative and other financial instruments by considering reasonably possible changes in interest rates and currency exchange rates. The Company continually monitors the creditworthiness of the customers to which it grants credit terms in the normal course of business. The terms and conditions of the Company’s credit policies are designed to mitigate concentrations of credit risk.

The Company’s master netting and other similar arrangements with the respective counterparties allow for net settlement under certain conditions, which are designed to reduce credit risk by permitting net settlement with the same counterparty. We present the assets and liabilities of our derivative financial instruments, for which we have net settlement agreements in place, on a net basis on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. If the derivative financial instruments had been presented gross on the Consolidated Balance Sheets, the asset and liability positions would have been increased by $1 million as of both March 30, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively.

Foreign Currency Exchange Risk Management
The Company conducts business on a multinational basis in a variety of foreign currencies. Exposure to market risk for changes in foreign currency exchange rates arises primarily from Euro-denominated external revenues, cross-border financing activities between subsidiaries, and foreign currency denominated monetary assets and liabilities. The Company manages its objective of preserving the economic value of non-functional currency denominated cash flows by initially hedging transaction exposures with natural offsets and, once these opportunities have been exhausted, through foreign exchange forward and option contracts, as deemed appropriate.

The Company manages the exchange rate risk of anticipated Euro-denominated sales using forward contracts, which typically mature within twelve months of execution. The Company designates these derivative contracts as cash flow hedges. Unrealized gains and losses on these contracts are deferred in Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) (“AOCI”) on the Consolidated Balance Sheets until the contract is settled and the hedged sale is realized. The realized gain or loss is then recorded as an adjustment to Net sales on the Consolidated Statements of Operations. Realized amounts reclassified to Net sales were $1 million of gains and $3 million of losses for the three months ended March 30, 2024 and April 1, 2023, respectively. As of March 30, 2024 and December 31, 2023, the notional amounts of the Company’s foreign exchange cash flow hedges were €551 million and €485 million, respectively. The Company has reviewed its cash flow hedges for effectiveness and determined that they are highly effective.

The Company uses forward contracts, which are not designated as hedging instruments, to manage its exposures related to net assets denominated in foreign currencies. These forward contracts typically mature within one month after execution. Monetary gains and losses on these forward contracts are recorded in income and are generally offset by the transaction gains and losses related to their net asset positions. The notional values and the net fair values of these outstanding contracts were as follows (in millions):

Interest Rate Risk Management
The Company’s debt consists of borrowings under a term loan (“Term Loan A”), Revolving Credit Facility, and Receivables Financing Facilities, which bear interest at variable rates plus applicable margins. As a result, the Company is exposed to market risk associated with the variable interest rate payments on these borrowings. See Note 9, Long-Term Debt for further details related to these borrowings.

The Company manages its exposure to changes in interest rates by utilizing long-term forward interest rate swaps to hedge this exposure and to achieve a desired proportion of fixed versus variable-rate debt, based on current and projected market conditions. The Company has interest rate swap agreements with a total notional amount of $800 million and $400 million, through October 2027 and June 2030, respectively, that are intended to result in a fixed interest rate on a portion of its variable rate debt. These agreements are subject to monthly net cash settlements.

20271,678 
Total future maturities of debt$2,093 
All borrowings as of March 30, 2024 were denominated in U.S. Dollars.
The estimated fair value of the Company’s debt approximated $2.1 billion and $2.2 billion as of March 30, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively. These fair value amounts, developed based on inputs classified as Level 2 within the fair value hierarchy, represent the estimated value at which the Company’s lenders could trade its debt within the financial markets and do not represent the settlement value of these liabilities to the Company. The fair value of debt will continue to vary each period based on a number of factors, including fluctuations in market interest rates as well as changes to the Company’s credit ratings.

Term Loan A
The principal on Term Loan A is due in quarterly installments, with the next quarterly installment due in the second quarter of 2025 and the majority due upon maturity in 2027. The Company may make prepayments in whole or in part, without premium or penalty, and would be required to prepay certain outstanding amounts in the event of certain circumstances or transactions. As of March 30, 2024, the Term Loan A interest rate was 6.68%. Interest payments are made monthly and are subject to variable rates plus an applicable margin.

Revolving Credit Facility
The Company has a Revolving Credit Facility that is available for working capital and other general business purposes, including letters of credit. As of March 30, 2024, the Company had letters of credit totaling $11 million, which reduced funds available for borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility from $1,500 million to $1,489 million. As of March 30, 2024, the Revolving Credit Facility had an average interest rate of 6.68%. Upon borrowing, interest payments are made monthly and are subject to variable rates plus an applicable margin. The Revolving Credit Facility matures on May 25, 2027.

13

Receivables Financing Facilities
The Company has two Receivables Financing Facilities with financial institutions that have a combined total borrowing limit of up to $280 million. As collateral, the Company pledges perfected first-priority security interests in its U.S. domestically originated accounts receivable. The Company has accounted for transactions under its facilities as secured borrowings. During the first quarter of 2024, the Company amended its first facility, which allows for borrowings up to $180 million, to extend the maturity to March 19, 2027, but otherwise did not substantially change the terms of the facility. The Company’s second facility allows for borrowings of up to $100 million, matures on May 13, 2024 and is not expected to be renewed.

As of March 30, 2024, the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets included $504 million of gross receivables that were pledged under the facilities. As of March 30, 2024, $280 million had been borrowed, of which $261 million was classified as current. Borrowings under the facilities bear interest at a variable rate plus an applicable margin. As of March 30, 2024, the facilities had an average interest rate of 6.56%. Interest is paid monthly on these borrowings.

Each of the Company’s borrowings described above include terms and conditions that limit the incurrence of additional borrowings and require that certain financial ratios be maintained at designated levels.

The Company uses interest rate swaps to manage the interest rate risk associated with its debt. See Note 8, Derivative Instruments for further information.

As of March 30, 2024, the Company was in compliance with all debt covenants.

Note 10 Leases

During the three months ended March 30, 2024, the Company recorded an additional $10 million of right-of-use (“ROU”) assets obtained in exchange for lease obligations primarily related to the commencement of a new office facility lease as well as contract modifications that extended existing lease terms.

Contingencies
The Company is subject to a variety of investigations, claims, suits, and other legal proceedings that arise from time to time in the ordinary course of business, including but not limited to, intellectual property, employment, tort, and breach of contract matters. The Company currently believes that the outcomes of such proceedings, individually and in the aggregate, will not have a material adverse impact on its business, cash flows, financial position, or results of operations. Any legal proceedings are subject to inherent uncertainties, and the Company’s view of these matters and their potential effects may change in the future. The Company records a liability for contingencies when a loss is deemed to be probable and the loss can be reasonably estimated.

Note 12 Income Taxes

The Company’s effective tax rate for the three months ended March 30, 2024 and April 1, 2023 was 19.0% and 18.9%, respectively. In the current and prior period, the variance from the 21% federal statutory rate was primarily due to the generation of tax credits and the favorable impacts of foreign earnings subject to U.S. taxation.

Note 13 Earnings Per Share

Basic net earnings per share is calculated by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted earnings per share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of diluted common shares outstanding. Diluted common shares outstanding is computed using the Treasury Stock method and, in periods of income, reflects the additional shares that would be outstanding if dilutive share-based compensation awards were converted into common shares during the period.

Note 14 Accumulated Other Comprehensive (Loss) Income

Stockholders’ equity includes certain items classified as AOCI, including:

Unrealized gain (loss) on sales hedging which relates to derivative instruments used to hedge the exposure related to currency exchange rates for forecasted Euro sales. These hedges are designated as cash flow hedges, and the Company defers income statement recognition of gains and losses until the hedged transaction occurs. See Note 8, Derivative Instruments for more details.

Foreign currency translation adjustments which relates to the Company’s non-U.S. subsidiary companies that have designated a functional currency other than the U.S. Dollar. The Company translates the subsidiary functional currency financial statements to U.S. Dollars using a combination of historical, period-end, and average foreign exchange rates. This combination of rates creates the foreign currency translation adjustment component of AOCI.

Note 15 Accounts Receivable Factoring

The Company transfers certain receivables to banks without recourse as part of its credit and cash management activities. Such transfers are accounted for as sales and the related receivables are removed from the Company’s balance sheet. The Company does not maintain any beneficial interest in the receivables sold. The Company services the receivables on behalf of the banks, but otherwise maintains no significant continuing involvement with respect to the receivables. Sale proceeds that are representative of the fair value of factored receivables, less a factoring fee, are reflected in Cash flows from operating activities on the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows, while sale proceeds in excess of the fair value of factored receivables are reflected in Cash flows from financing activities on the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.

The Company may be required to maintain a portion of sales proceeds as deposits in a restricted cash account that is released to the Company as it satisfies its obligations as servicer of sold receivables, which totaled $0 million and $1 million as of March 30, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively, and is classified within Prepaid expenses and other current assets on the Consolidated Balance Sheets.

During the three months ended March 30, 2024 and April 1, 2023, the Company received cash proceeds of $346 million and $373 million, respectively, from the sales of accounts receivables under its factoring arrangements. As of March 30, 2024 and December 31, 2023, there were a total of $43 million and $56 million, respectively, of uncollected receivables that had been sold and removed from the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets.

As servicer of sold receivables, the Company had $121 million and $112 million of obligations that were not yet remitted to banks as of March 30, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively. These obligations are included within Accrued liabilities on the Consolidated Balance Sheets, with changes in such obligations reflected within Cash flows from financing activities on the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.

Note 16 Segment Information & Geographic Data

The Company’s operations consist of two reportable segments: Asset Intelligence & Tracking (“AIT”) and Enterprise Visibility & Mobility (“EVM”). The reportable segments have been identified based on the financial data utilized by the Company’s Chief Executive Officer (the chief operating decision maker or “CODM”) to assess segment performance and allocate resources among the Company’s segments. The CODM reviews adjusted operating income to assess segment profitability. To the extent applicable, segment operating income excludes business acquisition purchase accounting adjustments, amortization of intangible assets, acquisition and integration costs, impairment of goodwill and other intangibles, exit and restructuring costs, as well as certain other non-recurring costs. Segment assets are not reviewed by the Company’s CODM and therefore are not disclosed below.

First Quarter 2024 Financial Summary and Other Recent Developments

Net sales were $1,175 million in the current quarter compared to $1,405 million in the prior year.
Operating income was $159 million in the current quarter compared to $225 million in the prior year.
Net income was $115 million, or $2.23 per diluted share in the current quarter, compared to net income of $150 million, or $2.90 per diluted share in the prior year.
Net cash provided by operating activities was $125 million in the current quarter compared to net cash used in operating activities of $76 million in the prior year.

Our first quarter of 2024 results continued to be impacted by broad-based softness across our end markets in all regions. While our current quarter results are below the first quarter of 2023, they have improved from the fourth quarter of 2023. As we entered the year, we saw a stabilization of distributor inventory levels and a modest recovery in the demand trends for our products resulting in a 16.5% increase in revenues from the fourth quarter of 2023. As discussed below, our first quarter results benefited from the actions taken under our 2022 Productivity Plan and the U.S. voluntary retirement plan. We expect revenues and profitability to improve sequentially from the first half to the second half of the current year, and on a year-over-year basis in the second half of the year.

Total charges associated with the 2022 Productivity Plan and the U.S. voluntary retirement plan, which was completed in 2023, are expected to be approximately $130 million, with $120 million incurred to date, including $10 million recorded in the current quarter. The remaining actions under the 2022 Productivity Plan are expected to be substantially completed in the second quarter of this year. The costs of these actions are classified within Exit and restructuring on the Consolidated Statements of Operations. The programs are expected to impact over 9% of our global employee base and are estimated to result in annualized net cost savings of approximately $120 million, primarily within Operating expenses. The Company has realized approximately $75 million of net savings to date, including $25 million in the current quarter.

Foreign currency translation impact represents the difference in results that are attributable to fluctuations in the currency exchange rates used to convert the results for businesses where the functional currency is not the U.S. Dollar. This impact is calculated by translating the current period results at the currency exchange rates used in the comparable prior year period, inclusive of the Company’s foreign currency hedging program.

(2)Consolidated Organic Net sales decline is a non-GAAP financial measure. See the Non-GAAP Measures section at the end of this item.

First quarter 2024 compared to first quarter 2023

Total Net sales decreased $230 million or 16.4% compared to the prior year reflecting declines in both of our segments primarily due to continued softness across our end markets in all regions. Excluding the effects of currency changes, Consolidated Organic Net sales decreased by 16.8%.

Gross margin increased to 47.9% for the current year compared to 47.5% for the prior year. As compared to the prior year, Gross margin was higher in our EVM segment and lower in our AIT segment. Gross margins of both segments benefited from lower freight rates compared to the prior year and were negatively impacted by volume deleveraging.

Operating expenses for the quarters ended March 30, 2024 and April 1, 2023 were $404 million and $442 million, or 34.4% and 31.5% of Net sales, respectively. Current year Operating expenses were lower than the prior year primarily due to cost savings largely attributed to our Exit and restructuring actions. The increase as a percentage of Net sales over the prior year reflects the impact of expense deleveraging.

Operating income was $159 million for the current year compared to $225 million in the prior year. The decrease was due to lower Gross profit, partially offset by lower Operating expenses.

Net income decreased compared to the prior year primarily due to lower Operating income, as described above, partially offset by lower Other expense, net. The decrease in Other expense, net was primarily due to interest rate swap gains in the current year compared to losses in the prior year, partially offset by higher interest expense associated with higher interest rates and average outstanding debt levels in the current year.

The Company’s effective tax rates for the three months ended March 30, 2024 and April 1, 2023 were 19.0% and 18.9%, respectively.

Diluted earnings per share decreased to $2.23 as compared to $2.90 in the prior year due to lower Net income.

First quarter 2024 compared to first quarter 2023

Total Net sales for EVM decreased $100 million or 11.3% compared to the prior year primarily due to lower sales of data capture products (contributing the majority of the total decrease) and mobile computing products, which were partially offset by higher sales of services and software. Excluding the impacts of foreign currency changes, EVM Organic Net sales decreased by 11.8%.

Gross margin increased to 48.4% in the current year compared to 46.3% for the prior year primarily due to higher service and software margins and lower freight rates, partially offset by product volume deleveraging.

Operating income for the current year decreased by 9.8% compared to the prior year due to lower Gross profit, partially offset by lower Operating expenses.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

The primary factors that influence our liquidity include the amount and timing of cash collections from our customers, cash payments to our suppliers, capital expenditures, acquisitions, and share repurchases. Management believes that our existing capital resources, inclusive of available borrowing capacity on debt and other financing facilities and funds generated from operations, are sufficient to meet anticipated capital requirements and service our indebtedness. The following table summarizes our cash flow activities for the periods indicated (in millions):

The change in our cash and cash equivalents balance during the three months ended March 30, 2024 compared to the prior year is primarily due to the following:

$201 million change in operating activities primarily due to lower cash payments for inventory purchases and the reduction of overall inventory levels, as well as lower employee incentive compensation and income tax payments, partially offset by unfavorable timing of customer collections and higher payments associated with Exit and restructuring actions.

$194 million change in financing activities primarily due to net debt repayments in the current year compared to net debt borrowings in the prior year.

Term Loan A
The principal on Term Loan A is due in quarterly installments, with the next quarterly installment due in the second quarter of 2025 and the majority due upon maturity in 2027. The Company may make prepayments in whole or in part, without premium or penalty, and would be required to prepay certain outstanding amounts in the event of certain circumstances or transactions. As of March 30, 2024, the Term Loan A interest rate was 6.68%. Interest payments are made monthly and are subject to variable rates plus an applicable margin.

Revolving Credit Facility
The Company has a Revolving Credit Facility that is available for working capital and other general business purposes, including letters of credit. As of March 30, 2024, the Company had letters of credit totaling $11 million, which reduced funds available for borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility from $1,500 million to $1,489 million. As of March 30, 2024, the Revolving Credit Facility had an average interest rate of 6.68%. Upon borrowing, interest payments are made monthly and are subject to variable rates plus an applicable margin. The Revolving Credit Facility matures on May 25, 2027.

Receivables Financing Facilities
The Company has two Receivables Financing Facilities with financial institutions that have a combined total borrowing limit of up to $280 million. As collateral, the Company pledges perfected first-priority security interests in its U.S. domestically originated accounts receivable. The Company has accounted for transactions under its facilities as secured borrowings. During the first quarter of 2024, the Company amended its first facility, which allows for borrowings up to $180 million, to extend the maturity to March 19, 2027, but otherwise did not substantially change the terms of the facility. The Company’s second facility allows for borrowings of up to $100 million, matures on May 13, 2024 and is not expected to be renewed.

24

As of March 30, 2024, the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets included $504 million of gross receivables that were pledged under the facilities. As of March 30, 2024, $280 million had been borrowed, of which $261 million was classified as current. Borrowings under the facilities bear interest at a variable rate plus an applicable margin. As of March 30, 2024, the facilities had an average interest rate of 6.56%. Interest is paid monthly on these borrowings.

See Note 9, Long-Term Debt in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for further details related to the Company’s debt instruments.

Receivables Factoring
The Company transfers certain receivables to banks without recourse as part of its credit and cash management activities. Such transfers are accounted for as sales and the related receivables are removed from the Company’s balance sheet. The Company does not maintain any beneficial interest in the receivables sold. The Company services the receivables on behalf of the banks, but otherwise maintains no significant continuing involvement with respect to the receivables. Sale proceeds that are representative of the fair value of factored receivables, less a factoring fee, are reflected in Cash flows from operating activities on the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows, while sale proceeds in excess of the fair value of factored receivables are reflected in Cash flows from financing activities on the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.

As of March 30, 2024 and December 31, 2023, there were a total of $43 million and $56 million, respectively, of uncollected receivables that had been sold and removed from the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets.

As servicer of sold receivables, the Company had $121 million and $112 million of obligations that were not yet remitted to banks as of March 30, 2024 and December 31, 2023, respectively. These obligations are included within Accrued liabilities on the Consolidated Balance Sheets, with changes in such obligations reflected within Cash flows from financing activities on the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.

See Note 15, Accounts Receivable Factoring in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for further details.

Share Repurchases
On May 17, 2022, the Company announced that its Board of Directors authorized a share repurchase program for up to an incremental $1 billion of its outstanding shares of common stock. This authorization augments the previous $1 billion share repurchase authorization which was announced on July 30, 2019. The May 2022 share repurchase program does not have a stated expiration date. The level of the Company’s repurchases depends on a number of factors, including its financial condition, capital requirements, cash flows, results of operations, future business prospects and other factors its management may deem relevant. The timing, volume, and nature of repurchases are subject to market conditions, applicable securities laws and other factors and may be amended, suspended or discontinued at any time. Repurchases may be affected from time to time through open market purchases, including pursuant to a pre-set trading plan meeting the requirements of Rule 10b5-1(c) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. In the fourth quarter of 2022, the Company completed its original authorization of $1 billion in share repurchases. During the first three months of 2024, the Company did not repurchase shares of common stock. As of March 30, 2024, the Company has cumulatively repurchased 409,014 shares of common stock for approximately $107 million, resulting in a remaining amount of share repurchases authorized under the May 2022 program of $893 million.

Significant Customers

End-users of our products, solutions and services are diversified across a wide variety of industries. We have three customers, who are distributors of the Company’s products and solutions, that individually accounted for more than 10% of our Net sales for the periods presented.

New Accounting Pronouncements

We do not expect any recently issued accounting pronouncements to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

Non-GAAP Measures

The Company has provided reconciliations of the supplemental non-GAAP financial measures, as defined under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, presented herein to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

These supplemental non-GAAP financial measures – Consolidated Organic Net sales decline, AIT Organic Net sales decline, and EVM Organic Net sales decline – are presented because our management evaluates our financial results both including and excluding the effects of business acquisitions and foreign currency translation, as applicable. Management believes that the supplemental non-GAAP financial measures presented provide additional perspective and insights when analyzing the core operating performance of our business from period to period and trends in our historical operating results. These supplemental non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered superior to, as a substitute for, or as an alternative to, and should be considered in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures presented.

Item 3.Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
There were no material changes in the Company’s market risk during the quarter ended March 30, 2024. For additional information on market risk, refer to Item 7A, “Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk” in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023.

Item 4.Controls and Procedures

Management’s Report on Disclosure Controls

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate disclosure controls as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms and (ii) accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including its principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Our management assessed the effectiveness of our disclosure controls as of March 30, 2024. Based on this assessment and those criteria, our management believes that, as of March 30, 2024, our disclosure controls were effective.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
During the quarter ended March 30, 2024, there have been no changes in our internal controls that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Inherent Limitations on the Effectiveness of Controls

Our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal controls will prevent or detect all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that misstatements due to error or fraud will not occur or that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within Zebra have been prevented or detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake. Controls can also be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the controls. The design of any system of controls is based in part on certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Projections of any evaluation of controls effectiveness to future periods are subject to risks. Over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or deterioration in the degree of compliance with policies or procedures.
