MARRIOTT INTERNATIONAL, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
1.    BASIS OF PRESENTATION
The condensed consolidated financial statements present the results of operations, financial position, and cash flows of Marriott International, Inc. and subsidiaries (referred to in this report as “we,” “us,” “Marriott,” or “the Company”). In order to make this report easier to read, we also refer throughout to (i) our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements as our “Financial Statements,” (ii) our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income as our “Income Statements,” (iii) our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets as our “Balance Sheets,” (iv) our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows as our “Statements of Cash Flows,” (v) our properties, brands, or markets in the United States (“U.S.”) and Canada as “North America” or “North American,” and (vi) our properties, brands, or markets in our Caribbean and Latin America, Europe, and Middle East and Africa regions as “Other International,” and together with those in our Asia Pacific segment, as “International.” In addition, references throughout to numbered “Footnotes” refer to the numbered Notes in these Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, unless otherwise noted.
These Financial Statements have not been audited. We have condensed or omitted certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). The financial statements in this report 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, 2018 (“2018 Form 10-K”). Certain terms not otherwise defined in this Form 10-Q have the meanings specified in our 2018 Form 10-K.
Preparation of financial statements that conform with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the date of the financial statements, the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods, and the disclosures of contingent liabilities. Accordingly, ultimate results could differ from those estimates.
The accompanying Financial Statements reflect all normal and recurring adjustments necessary to present fairly our financial position as of June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the results of our operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018, and cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018. As described in Part II, Item 8 of our 2018 Form 10-K, in the 2018 fourth quarter, we identified errors related to our Loyalty Program, which resulted in the understatement of cost reimbursement revenue, net of reimbursed expenses. We presented revised information for the 2018 first, second, and third quarters in our 2018 Form 10-K, and the accompanying Income Statement for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 reflects the revised information. Interim results may not be indicative of fiscal year performance because of seasonal and short-term variations. We have eliminated all material intercompany transactions and balances between entities consolidated in these Financial Statements.
The accompanying Financial Statements also reflect our adoption of ASU 2016-02. See the “New Accounting Standards Adopted” caption below for additional information.
New Accounting Standards Adopted
Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-02 - “Leases” (Topic 842). ASU 2016-02 introduces a lessee model that brings substantially all leases onto the balance sheet. Under the standard, a lessee recognizes on its balance sheet a lease liability and a right-of-use asset for most leases, including operating leases. The new standard also distinguishes leases as either finance leases or operating leases. This distinction affects how leases are measured and presented in the income statement and statement of cash flows. We adopted ASU 2016-02 in the 2019 first quarter using the modified retrospective transition method. Our accounting for finance leases remained substantially unchanged. Adoption of the standard resulted in the recording of $1,013 million of operating lease assets and $1,053 million of operating lease liabilities, as of January 1, 2019. We did not adjust our prior period Balance Sheets. Adoption of the standard did not impact our Income Statements or our Statements of Cash Flows.

Table of Contents

When we adopted ASU 2016-02, we applied the package of practical expedients allowed by the standard, and therefore, we did not reassess:
Whether any expired or existing contracts are or contain leases under the new definition;
The lease classification for any expired or existing leases; or
Whether previously capitalized costs continue to qualify as initial direct costs.
See Footnote 7. Leases for disclosures required by ASU 2016-02.
2.    ACQUISITIONS
In the 2019 first quarter, we accelerated our option to acquire our partner’s remaining interests in two joint ventures. As a result of the transaction, we recognized an indefinite-lived brand asset for AC Hotels by Marriott of $156 million and management and franchise contract assets, with a weighted-average term of 24 years, totaling $34 million.

4.    SHARE-BASED COMPENSATION
RSUs and PSUs
We granted 1.6 million restricted stock units (“RSUs”) during the 2019 first half to certain officers and key employees, and those units vest generally over four years in equal annual installments commencing one year after the grant date. We also granted 0.1 million performance-based RSUs (“PSUs”) in the 2019 first half to certain executive officers, which are earned, subject to continued employment and the satisfaction of certain performance conditions based on achievement of pre-established targets for gross room openings, Marriott Bonvoy™ loyalty member penetration, and adjusted operating income growth over, or at the end of, a three-year performance period. RSUs, including PSUs, granted in the 2019 first half had a weighted average grant-date fair value of $117.
We recorded share-based compensation expense for RSUs and PSUs of $48 million in the 2019 second quarter and $49 million in the 2018 second quarter, $86 million for the 2019 first half, and $88 million for the 2018 first half. Deferred compensation costs for unvested awards for RSUs and PSUs totaled $266 million at June 30, 2019 and $167 million at December 31, 2018.

Table of Contents

5.    INCOME TAXES
Our effective tax rate increased to 26.2 percent for the 2019 second quarter from 23.6 percent for the 2018 second quarter, primarily due to the unfavorable impact of the non-tax deductible accrual for the Proposed ICO Fine discussed in Footnote 6. Commitments and Contingencies. The increase was partially offset by a shift in earnings to jurisdictions with lower tax rates and prior year tax expenses for dispositions.
Our effective tax rate decreased to 18.7 percent for the 2019 first half from 22.6 percent for the 2018 first half, primarily due to the prior year tax expense incurred for uncertain tax positions relating to legacy-Starwood operations, the prior year state income tax expense due to a change in our position regarding the future remittance of accumulated earnings of non-U.S. subsidiaries, prior year tax expenses for dispositions, and a shift in earnings to jurisdictions with lower tax rates. The decrease was partially offset by the 2018 release of tax reserves due to the completion of certain examinations and the unfavorable impact in the 2019 second quarter of the non-tax deductible accrual for the loss contingency related to the Proposed ICO Fine discussed in Footnote 6. Commitments and Contingencies.
We paid cash for income taxes, net of refunds, of $241 million in the 2019 first half and $489 million in the 2018 first half.
6.    COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Guarantees
We present the maximum potential amount of our future guarantee fundings and the carrying amount of our liability for our debt service, operating profit, and other guarantees (excluding contingent purchase obligations) for which we are the primary obligor at June 30, 2019 in the following table:

Our guarantees listed in the preceding table include $46 million of guarantees that will not be in effect until the underlying properties open and we begin to operate the properties or certain other events occur.
Contingent Purchase Obligation
Sheraton Grand Chicago. We granted the owner a one-time right, exercisable in 2022, to require us to purchase the leasehold interest in the land and the hotel for $300 million in cash (the “put option”). If the owner exercises the put option, we have the option to purchase, at the same time the put transaction closes, the fee simple interest in the underlying land for an additional $200 million in cash. We accounted for the put option as a guarantee, and our recorded liability at June 30, 2019 was $57 million.

Data Security Incident
Description of Event
On November 30, 2018, we announced a data security incident involving unauthorized access to the Starwood reservations database (the “Data Security Incident”). Working with leading security experts, we determined that there was unauthorized access to the Starwood network since 2014 and that an unauthorized party had copied information from the Starwood reservations database and taken steps towards removing it. While our forensic review of the incident is now complete, certain data analytics work continues. The Starwood reservations database is no longer used for business operations.
Expenses and Insurance Recoveries
We recorded $148 million of expenses, partially offset by $22 million of accrued insurance recoveries, related to the Data Security Incident during the 2019 second quarter, and $192 million of expenses, partially offset by $68 million of accrued insurance recoveries, related to the Data Security Incident during the 2019 first half, which we recorded in either the “Reimbursed expenses” or “Merger-related costs and charges” captions of our Income Statements. Expenses for the quarter and year-to-date primarily included the accrual for the loss contingency related to the Proposed ICO Fine discussed below, along with customer care and legal costs. We recognize insurance recoveries when they are probable of receipt and present them in our Income Statements in the same caption as the related expense, up to the amount of total expense incurred in prior and current periods.
Litigation, Claims, and Government Investigations
To date, approximately 100 lawsuits have been filed by consumers and others against us in U.S. federal, U.S. state and Canadian courts related to the Data Security Incident. The vast majority of these cases are putative consumer class actions, in which the plaintiffs, who purport to represent various classes of consumers, generally claim to have been harmed by alleged actions and/or omissions by the Company in connection with the Data Security Incident and assert a variety of common law and statutory claims seeking monetary damages, injunctive relief, costs and attorneys’ fees, and other related relief. All of the U.S. cases, except for a single case filed in small claims court in Minnesota, have been consolidated and transferred to the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, pursuant to orders of the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (MDL). In addition, a putative class action lawsuit was filed against us and certain of our current officers and directors on December 1, 2018, alleging violations of the federal securities laws in connection with statements regarding our cybersecurity systems and controls, and seeking certification of a class of affected persons, unspecified monetary damages, costs and attorneys’ fees, and other related relief. Two shareholder derivative complaints were also filed on February 26, 2019 and March 15, 2019, respectively, against the Company, certain of its officers and certain of the members of our Board of Directors, alleging, among other claims, breach of fiduciary duty, corporate waste, unjust enrichment, mismanagement and violations of the federal securities laws, and seeking unspecified monetary damages and restitution, changes to the Company’s corporate governance and internal procedures, costs and attorneys’ fees, and other related relief. These cases are also covered by the MDL order. We dispute the allegations in the lawsuits described above and intend to defend vigorously against such claims. In addition, in April 2019, we received a letter purportedly on behalf of a shareholder of the Company (also one of the named plaintiffs in the putative securities class action described above) demanding that our Board of Directors take action against the Company’s current and certain former officers and directors to recover damages for alleged breaches of fiduciary duties and related claims arising from the Data Security Incident. The Board of Directors has constituted a demand review committee to investigate the claims made in the demand letter, and the committee has retained independent counsel to assist with the investigation. The committee’s investigation is ongoing.
In addition, numerous U.S. federal, U.S. state and foreign governmental authorities are investigating, or otherwise seeking information and/or documents related to, the Data Security Incident and related matters, including Attorneys General offices from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, the Federal Trade Commission, the Securities and Exchange Commission, certain committees of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, the Information Commissioner’s Office in the United Kingdom (“ICO”) as lead supervisory authority in the European Economic Area, and regulatory authorities in various other jurisdictions. On July 9, 2019, we announced that the

10

Table of Contents

ICO had communicated its intent to issue a fine in the amount of £99 million against the Company in relation to the Data Security Incident (the “Proposed ICO Fine”). In the 2019 second quarter, we recorded an accrual in the amount of $126 million for this loss contingency. The accrual was recorded in the “Accrued expenses and other” caption of our Balance Sheets and in the “Merger-related costs and charges” caption of our Income Statements. We have the right to respond to the ICO before the amount of the fine is finally determined and the fine can be issued by the ICO, and we intend to respond and vigorously defend our position. Following the Data Security Incident, the ICO also notified us that it had opened an investigation into the Company’s online privacy policy and related practices and an investigation into the Company’s handling of data subject access requests. These investigations are separate from the ICO’s investigation related to the Data Security Incident and the Proposed ICO Fine does not relate to either of these separate investigations.
While we believe it is reasonably possible that we may incur additional losses associated with the above described proceedings and investigations, it is not possible to estimate the amount of loss or range of loss, if any, in excess of the amounts already incurred that might result from adverse judgments, settlements, fines, penalties, or other resolution of these proceedings and investigations based on the stage of these proceedings and investigations, the absence of specific allegations as to alleged damages, the uncertainty as to the certification of a class or classes and the size of any certified class, if applicable, and/or the lack of resolution of significant factual and legal issues.
7. LEASES
We enter into operating and finance leases primarily for hotels, offices, and equipment. Most leases have initial terms of up to 20 years and contain one or more renewals at our option, generally for five- to 10-year periods. We have generally not included these renewal periods in the lease term as it is not reasonably certain that we will exercise the renewal option. In addition, our leases generally contain fixed and variable components. The variable components of leases of land or building facilities are primarily based on operating performance of the leased property. Our lease agreements may also include non-lease components, such as common area maintenance, which we combine with the lease component to account for both as a single lease component. We calculate the present value of future payments using a discount rate equal to our incremental borrowing rate.
The following table details the composition of lease expense for the 2019 second quarter and 2019 first half:

We paid cash for interest, net of amounts capitalized, of $176 million in the 2019 first half and $144 million in the 2018 first half.
In the 2019 second quarter, we amended and restated our multicurrency revolving credit agreement (the “Credit Facility”) to extend the maturity date of the Credit Facility and increase the aggregate amount of available borrowings to up to $4.5 billion. The available borrowings support our commercial paper program and general corporate needs. Borrowings under the Credit Facility generally bear interest at LIBOR (the London Interbank

Offered Rate) plus a spread, based on our public debt rating. We also pay quarterly fees on the Credit Facility at a rate based on our public debt rating. While any outstanding commercial paper borrowings and/or borrowings under our Credit Facility generally have short-term maturities, we classify the outstanding borrowings as long-term based on our ability and intent to refinance the outstanding borrowings on a long-term basis. The Credit Facility expires on June 28, 2024. See the “Cash Requirements and Our Credit Facility” caption later in this report in the “Liquidity and Capital Resources” section of Item 2 below for further information on our Credit Facility and available borrowing capacity at June 30, 2019.
In the 2019 first quarter, we issued $300 million aggregate principal amount of LIBOR plus 0.650 percent Series BB Notes due March 8, 2021 (the “Series BB Notes”) and $550 million aggregate principal amount of 3.600 percent Series CC Notes due April 15, 2024 (the “Series CC Notes”). We pay interest on the Series BB Notes in March, June, September, and December of each year, commencing in June 2019, and will pay interest on the Series CC Notes in April and October of each year, commencing in October 2019. We received net proceeds of approximately $841 million from the offering of the Series BB Notes and Series CC Notes, after deducting the underwriting discount and estimated expenses, which were made available for general corporate purposes, which may include working capital, capital expenditures, acquisitions, stock repurchases, or repayment of outstanding commercial paper or other borrowings.
9.    FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
