NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
NOTE 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 region, Europe, Middle East and Africa segment, and Asia Pacific segment, as “International.” In addition, references throughout to numbered “Notes” refer to these Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, unless otherwise stated.
These Financial Statements have not been audited. We have condensed or omitted certain information and 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, 2019 (“2019 Form 10-K”). Certain terms not otherwise defined in this Form 10-Q have the meanings specified in our 2019 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. The uncertainty created by the coronavirus and efforts to contain it (“COVID-19”) has made such estimates more difficult and subjective. 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 September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the results of our operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019, and cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019. Interim results may not be indicative of fiscal year performance because of seasonal and short-term variations, as well as the impact of COVID-19. We have eliminated all material intercompany transactions and balances between entities consolidated in these Financial Statements.

New Accounting Standards Adopted
Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-13 - “Financial Instruments-Credit Losses” (Topic 326).
ASU 2016-13 requires the use of an impairment methodology that reflects an estimate of expected credit losses, measured over the contractual life of an instrument, based on information about past events, current conditions, and forecasts of future economic conditions. We adopted ASU 2016-13 in the 2020 first quarter using the modified retrospective transition method. Upon adoption, we increased our allowance for credit losses in the “Accounts and notes receivable, net” caption of our Balance Sheets by $19 million, from $82 million at December 31, 2019 to $101 million at January 1, 2020. We also recorded a $4 million decrease in the “Deferred tax liabilities” caption of our Balance Sheets and a $15 million cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings on our Balance Sheets.
Additionally, we recorded a provision for credit losses of $122 million in the 2020 first three quarters, primarily due to the negative economic impact caused by COVID-19 and our estimate of future economic conditions. The allowance for credit losses was $199 million at September 30, 2020.

NOTE 2. RESTRUCTURING CHARGES
Beginning in the 2020 second quarter, we initiated several regional restructuring plans to achieve cost savings in response to the decline in lodging demand caused by COVID-19. In the 2020 first three quarters, we recorded $305 million of restructuring charges for above-property, property-level, and owned and leased properties employee termination benefits, of which we present $46 million in the “Restructuring and merger-related charges” caption and $259 million in the “Reimbursed expenses” caption of our Income Statements. Our North America segment recorded $215 million of the total restructuring charges in the 2020 first three quarters.
In the 2020 first three quarters, we recorded $109 million of global above-property restructuring charges, primarily for employee termination benefits, of which we present $37 million in the “Restructuring and merger-related charges” caption and $72 million in the “Reimbursed expenses” caption of our Income Statements. Our global above-property restructuring activities are currently expected to result in approximately $115 million to $125 million of charges, including amounts already expensed. We expect to substantially complete the programs relating to our above-property organization by year-end 2020.
In the 2020 first three quarters, we recorded $196 million of property-level and owned and leased properties restructuring charges for employee termination benefits, of which we present $9 million in the “Restructuring and merger-related charges” caption and $187 million in the “Reimbursed expenses” caption of our Income Statements. We anticipate additional property-level and owned and leased properties restructuring charges in future quarters.
The following table presents our restructuring reserve activity during the period:

Table of Contents
NOTE 5. SHARE-BASED COMPENSATION
We granted 3.4 million restricted stock units (“RSUs”) during the 2020 first three quarters 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 2020 first three quarters 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, active Marriott Bonvoy™ loyalty member growth, and adjusted operating income growth over, or at the end of, a three-year performance period. RSUs, including PSUs, granted in the 2020 first three quarters had a weighted average grant-date fair value of $101 per unit.
We recorded share-based compensation expense for RSUs and PSUs of $49 million in the 2020 third quarter and $44 million in the 2019 third quarter, $134 million in the 2020 first three quarters, and $130 million in the 2019 first three quarters. Deferred compensation costs for unvested awards for RSUs and PSUs totaled $372 million at September 30, 2020 and $176 million at December 31, 2019.
NOTE 6. INCOME TAXES
Our effective tax rate was 21.6 percent for the 2020 third quarter compared to 26.4 percent for the 2019 third quarter. The decrease in our effective tax rate was primarily due to the reduction of the accrual for the ICO fine described in Note 7, which had no tax impact.
Our effective tax rate was a benefit of 32.0 percent for the 2020 first three quarters compared to a provision of 21.9 percent for the 2019 first three quarters. The change in our effective tax rate was primarily due to a more favorable impact from stock based compensation, which was partially offset by an unfavorable impact from uncertain tax positions.
We paid cash for income taxes, net of refunds, of $240 million in the 2020 first three quarters and $376 million in the 2019 first three quarters.
NOTE 7. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Guarantees
We present the maximum potential amount of our future guarantee fundings and the carrying amount of our liability for our debt service, operating profit, and other guarantees (excluding contingent purchase obligations) for which we are the primary obligor at September 30, 2020 in the following table:
($ in millions)
Guarantee Type
Maximum Potential Amount of Future FundingsRecorded Liability for Guarantees
Debt service$53 $6 
Operating profit183 107 
Other18 4 
$254 $117 

Our maximum potential guarantees listed in the preceding table include $79 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 September 30, 2020 was $57 million.

Starwood 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. The Starwood reservations database is no longer used for business operations.
Expenses and Insurance Recoveries
In the 2020 third quarter, we recorded a $35 million net reversal of expenses and $4 million of accrued insurance recoveries, and in the 2019 third quarter, we recorded $6 million of expenses and $9 million of accrued insurance recoveries, related to the Data Security Incident. In the 2020 first three quarters, we recorded a $17 million net reversal of expenses and $24 million of accrued insurance recoveries, and in the 2019 first three quarters, we recorded $198 million of expenses and $77 million of accrued insurance recoveries, related to the Data Security Incident. We received insurance recoveries of $1 million in the 2020 third quarter, $6 million in the 2019 third quarter, $45 million in the 2020 first three quarters, and $58 million in the 2019 first three quarters. The net reversal of expenses for the 2020 third quarter and year-to-date is primarily due to the reduction of the accrual for the ICO fine further described below. 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. We present expenses and insurance recoveries related to the Data Security Incident in either the “Reimbursed expenses” or “Restructuring and merger-related charges” captions of our Income Statements.
Litigation, Claims, and Government Investigations
Following our announcement of the Data Security Incident, approximately 100 lawsuits were filed by consumers and others against us in U.S. federal, U.S. state and Canadian courts related to the incident. All but one of the U.S. cases were 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 (the “MDL”). The plaintiffs in the U.S. and Canadian cases, who generally 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. Among the U.S. cases consolidated in the MDL proceeding is a putative class action lawsuit that 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. The MDL proceeding also includes two shareholder derivative complaints that were filed on February 26, 2019 and March 15, 2019, respectively, against the Company, certain of its officers and certain current and former 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. A separate shareholder derivative complaint was filed in the Delaware Court of Chancery on December 3, 2019 against the Company and certain of its officers and certain current and former members of our Board of Directors, alleging claims and seeking relief generally similar to the claims made and relief sought in the other two derivative cases. This case will not be consolidated with the MDL proceeding. We dispute the allegations in the lawsuits described above and are vigorously defending against such claims. We have filed motions to dismiss in each of these cases, some of which have been denied, but the cases generally remain at an early stage. There has been some consolidation of the Canadian cases, with five cases now pending across five provinces, and we expect there could be further consolidation in the future. 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

Table of Contents
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, on August 18, 2020, a purported representative action was brought against us in the High Court of Justice for England and Wales on behalf of an alleged claimant class of English and Welsh residents alleging breaches of the General Data Protection Regulation and/or the U.K. Data Protection Act 2018 (the “U.K. DPA”) in connection with the Data Security Incident. We dispute all of the allegations in this purported action and will vigorously defend against any such claims. On November 5, 2020, the court issued an order with the consent of all parties staying this action pending resolution of another case raising similar issues, but not involving the Company, that is pending before the U.K. Supreme Court.
In addition, numerous U.S. federal, U.S. state and foreign governmental authorities made inquiries, opened investigations, or requested 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 (the “ICO”) as lead supervisory authority in the European Economic Area, and regulatory authorities in various other jurisdictions. With the exception of the ICO proceeding, these matters generally remain open. In July 2019, the ICO issued a formal notice of intent under the U.K. DPA proposing a fine in the amount of £99 million against the Company in relation to the Data Security Incident. We submitted written responses to the ICO vigorously defending our position and have engaged with the ICO regarding the Data Security Incident and proposed fine. We mutually agreed with the ICO to an extension of the regulatory process until October 30, 2020, and on October 30, 2020 the ICO issued a final decision under the U.K. DPA. The decision includes a fine of £18.4 million. The Company does not intend to appeal the ICO’s decision, but has made no admission of liability in relation to the decision or the underlying allegations. Our accrual for this loss contingency, which we present in the “Accrued expenses and other” caption of our Balance Sheets, was $65 million at December 31, 2019, and $23 million at September 30, 2020.
While we believe it is reasonably possible that we may incur additional losses associated with the above described proceedings and investigations related to the Data Security Incident, 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 current 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.

(2)Operating leases recorded in the “Operating lease liabilities” and finance leases recorded in the “Long-term debt” captions of our Balance Sheets.
As of September 30, 2020, we had entered into an agreement that we expect to account for as an operating lease with a 20-year term for our new headquarters office, which is not reflected in our Balance Sheets or in the table above as the lease has not commenced.
We recorded impairment charges for right-of-use assets and property and equipment, including leasehold improvements, of $105 million in the 2020 first three quarters in the “Depreciation, amortization, and other” caption of our Income Statements relating to the impact of COVID-19 on several North America leased hotels. We determined that we may not be able to fully recover the carrying amount of these North America hotel leases after evaluating the assets for recovery due to declines in market performance and future cash flow projections. We estimated the fair value using an income approach reflecting internally developed Level 3 discounted cash flows that included, among other things, our expectations of future cash flows based on historical experience and projected growth rates, usage estimates, and demand trends.

We paid cash for interest, net of amounts capitalized, of $234 million in the 2020 first three quarters and $247 million in the 2019 first three quarters.
We are party to a multicurrency revolving credit agreement (as amended, the “Credit Facility”) that provides for up to $4.5 billion of aggregate effective borrowings to support our commercial paper program and general corporate needs, including working capital, capital expenditures, letters of credit, and acquisitions. 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. We classify outstanding borrowings under the Credit Facility and outstanding commercial paper 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. In the 2020 first three quarters, we made borrowings of $4.5 billion and repayments of $3.6 billion, reducing the total outstanding borrowings under the Credit Facility to $0.9 billion as of September 30, 2020.
In April 2020, we entered into an amendment to the Credit Facility. The amendment waives the quarterly-tested leverage covenant in the Credit Facility through and including the first quarter of 2021 (which waiver period may end sooner at our election), adjusts the required leverage levels for the covenant when it is re-imposed at the end of the waiver period, and imposes a new monthly-tested liquidity covenant for the duration of the waiver period. The amendment also makes certain other amendments to the terms of the Credit Facility, including increasing the interest and fees payable on the Credit Facility for the duration of the period during which the waiver of the leverage covenant remains in effect, tightening certain existing covenants, and imposing additional covenants for the duration of the waiver period. These covenant changes include tightening the lien covenant and the covenant on dividends, share repurchases and distributions, and imposing new covenants limiting asset sales, investments and discretionary capital expenditures.
In April 2020, we issued $1.6 billion aggregate principal amount of 5.750 percent Series EE Notes due May 1, 2025 (the “Series EE Notes”). We will pay interest on the Series EE Notes in May and November of each year, commencing in November 2020. We received net proceeds of approximately $1.581 billion from the offering of the Series EE Notes, after deducting the underwriting discount and estimated expenses, which were made available for general corporate purposes.
In June 2020, we issued $1.0 billion aggregate principal amount of 4.625 percent Series FF Notes due June 15, 2030 (the “Series FF Notes”). We will pay interest on the Series FF Notes in June and December of each year, commencing in December 2020. We received net proceeds of approximately $985 million from the offering of the Series FF Notes, after deducting the underwriting discount and estimated expenses. We used the majority of these proceeds to repurchase Senior Notes with near term maturities, as further described below.
In June 2020, we completed a tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) and retired $853 million aggregate principal amount of our Senior Notes consisting of:
$351 million of our 2.3% Series Q Notes maturing January 15, 2022;
$176 million of our 3.3% Series L Notes maturing September 15, 2022; and
$326 million of our 2.1% Series DD Notes maturing October 3, 2022.
We used proceeds from our Series FF Notes offering to complete the repurchase of such notes, including the payment of accrued interest and other costs incurred.
In July 2020, we redeemed all $350 million aggregate principal amount of our Series M Notes due in October 2020.

In August 2020, we issued $1.0 billion aggregate principal amount of 3.500 percent Series GG Notes due October 15, 2032 (the “Series GG Notes”). We will pay interest on the Series GG Notes in April and October of each year, commencing in April 2021. We received net proceeds of approximately $984 million from the offering of the Series GG Notes, after deducting the underwriting discount and estimated expenses, which were made available for general corporate purposes, including the repayment of a portion of our outstanding borrowings under the Credit Facility.
NOTE 10. FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
We believe that the fair values of our current assets and current liabilities approximate their reported carrying amounts. We present the carrying values and the fair values of noncurrent financial assets and liabilities that qualify as financial instruments, determined under current guidance for disclosures on the fair value of financial instruments, in the following table:

The carrying value of our Credit Facility borrowings approximate fair value because they bear interest at a market rate. See Note 13. Fair Value of Financial Instruments and the “Fair Value Measurements” caption of Note 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies of our 2019 Form 10-K for more information on the input levels we use in determining fair value.
