FEDEX CORPORATION

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

(1) General

SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES. These interim financial statements of FedEx Corporation (“FedEx”) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) instructions for interim financial information, and should be read in conjunction with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended May 31, 2020 (“Annual Report”). Significant accounting policies and other disclosures normally provided have been omitted since such items are disclosed in our Annual Report.

In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments (including normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly our financial position as of November 30, 2020, and the results of our operations for the three- and six-month periods ended November 30, 2020 and 2019, cash flows for the six-month periods ended November 30, 2020 and 2019, and changes in common stockholders’ investment for the three- and six-month periods ended November 30, 2020 and 2019. Operating results for the three- and six-month periods ended November 30, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending May 31, 2021.

Except as otherwise specified, references to years indicate our fiscal year ending May 31, 2021 or ended May 31 of the year referenced and comparisons are to the corresponding period of the prior year.

REVENUE RECOGNITION

Contract Assets and Liabilities

Contract assets include billed and unbilled amounts resulting from in-transit shipments, as we have an unconditional right to payment only once all performance obligations have been completed (e.g., packages have been delivered). Contract assets are generally classified as current and the full balance is converted each quarter based on the short-term nature of the transactions. Our contract liabilities consist of advance payments and billings in excess of revenue. The full balance of deferred revenue is converted each quarter based on the short-term nature of the transactions.

Gross contract assets related to in-transit shipments totaled $701 million and $563 million at November 30, 2020 and May 31, 2020, respectively. Contract assets net of deferred unearned revenue were $499 million and $456 million at November 30, 2020 and May 31, 2020, respectively. Contract assets are included within current assets in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets. Contract liabilities related to advance payments from customers were $9 million and $10 million at November 30, 2020 and May 31, 2020, respectively. Contract liabilities are included within current liabilities in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets.
