Special Note About Forward-Looking Statements
This report includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 that reflect our current views as to future events and financial performance with respect to, without limitation, conditions in our industry, our operations, our economic performance and financial condition, including, in particular, statements relating to our business and growth strategy. These statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. They use words such as “outlook,” “aim,” “anticipate,” “are confident,” “estimate,” “expect,” “will be,” “will continue,” “will likely result,” “project,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “see,” “look to” and other words and terms of similar meaning or the negative versions of such words.
Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date made. All statements we make relating to our estimated and projected earnings, costs, expenditures, cash flows, growth rates and financial results are forward-looking statements. In addition, we, through our senior management, from time to time make forward-looking public statements concerning our expected future operations and performance and other developments. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that may change at any time, and, therefore, our actual results may differ materially from those that we expected. We derive many of our forward-looking statements from our operating budgets and forecasts, which are based upon many detailed assumptions. While we believe that our assumptions are reasonable, we caution that it is very difficult to predict the impact of known factors, and, of course, it is impossible for us to anticipate all factors that could affect our actual results. All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to us, or persons acting on our behalf, are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements. Some of the factors that we believe could affect our results include without limitation: unfavorable economic conditions; natural disasters, global calamities, sports strikes and other adverse incidents; the failure to retain current clients, renew existing client contracts and obtain new client contracts; a determination by clients to reduce their outsourcing or use of preferred vendors; competition in our industries; increased operating costs and obstacles to cost recovery due to the pricing and cancellation terms of our food and support services contracts; the inability to achieve cost savings through our cost reduction efforts; our expansion strategy; the failure to maintain food safety throughout our supply chain, food-borne illness concerns and claims of illness or injury; governmental regulations including those relating to food and beverages, the environment, wage and hour and government contracting; liability associated with noncompliance with applicable law or other governmental regulations; new interpretations of or changes in the enforcement of the government regulatory framework; currency risks and other risks associated with international operations, including Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, U.K. Bribery Act and other anti-corruption law compliance; continued or further unionization of our workforce; liability resulting from our participation in multiemployer defined benefit pension plans; risks associated with suppliers from whom our products are sourced; disruptions to our relationship with, or to the business of, our primary distributor; the inability to hire and retain sufficient qualified personnel or increases in labor costs; healthcare reform legislation; the contract intensive nature of our business, which may lead to client disputes; seasonality; disruptions in the availability of our computer systems or privacy breaches; failure to achieve and maintain effective internal controls; our leverage; the inability to generate sufficient cash to service all of our indebtedness; debt agreements that limit our flexibility in operating our business; and other factors set forth under the headings Item 1A “Risk Factors,” Item 3 “Legal Proceedings” and Item 7 “Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" and other sections of our Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the SEC on December 1, 2015, as such factors may be updated from time to time in our other periodic filings with the SEC, which are accessible on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov and which may be obtained by contacting Aramark’s investor relations department via its website www.aramark.com. Accordingly, there are or will be important factors that could cause actual outcomes or results to differ materially from those indicated in these statements. These factors should not be construed as exhaustive and should be read in conjunction with the other cautionary statements that are included in this report and in our other filings with the SEC. As a result of these risks and uncertainties, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements included herein or that may be made elsewhere from time to time by, or on behalf of, us. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or review any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments, changes in our expectations, or otherwise, except as required by law.

ARAMARK AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)


NOTE 1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES:
Aramark (the “Company”) is a leading global provider of food, facilities and uniform services to education, healthcare, business & industry, and sports, leisure & corrections clients. The Company's core market is North America (composed of the United States and Canada), which is supplemented by an additional 19-country footprint serving many of the fastest growing global geographies. The Company operates its business in three reportable segments that share many of the same operating characteristics: Food and Support Services North America ("FSS North America"), Food and Support Services International ("FSS International") and Uniform and Career Apparel ("Uniform").
The condensed consolidated financial statements included herein have been prepared by the Company pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements, and the notes to those statements, included in the Company's Form 10-K filed with the SEC on December 1, 2015. The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of October 2, 2015 was derived from audited financial statements which have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”). Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations, although the Company believes that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information not misleading. In the opinion of the Company, the statements include all adjustments, which are of a normal, recurring nature, required for a fair presentation for the periods presented. The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results for a full year, due to the seasonality of some of the Company’s business activities and the possibility of changes in general economic conditions.
The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and all of its subsidiaries in which a controlling financial interest is maintained. All significant intercompany transactions and accounts have been eliminated. The Company has an ownership interest in a subsidiary with a redeemable noncontrolling interest.
New Accounting Standard Updates
In March 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued an accounting standard update ("ASU") to update several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences and classification of awards. The guidance is effective for the Company in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 and early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the pronouncement.
In February 2016, the FASB issued an ASU requiring lessees to recognize most leases on their balance sheets as lease liabilities with corresponding right-of-use assets and to disclose key information about lease arrangements. The guidance is effective for the Company in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 and early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the pronouncement.
In January 2016, the FASB issued an ASU to address certain aspects of recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of financial instruments. The guidance is effective for the Company in the first quarter of fiscal 2019 and early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the pronouncement.
In November 2015, the FASB issued an ASU to simplify the presentation of deferred income taxes to require all deferred tax liabilities and assets to be classified as noncurrent in a classified statement of financial position. The company adopted the guidance in the second quarter of fiscal 2016 on a prospective basis, resulting in a reclassification of approximately $18.1 million from "Accrued expenses and other current liabilities" to "Deferred Income Taxes and Other Noncurrent Liabilities" in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet.
In July 2015, the FASB issued an ASU which changes the measurement principle for inventory from the lower of cost or market to the lower of cost and net realizable value. The guidance is effective for the Company in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 and early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the pronouncement.
In April 2015, the FASB issued an ASU on debt issuance costs which requires presentation on the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the debt liability, similar to the presentation of debt discounts, and will no longer be recorded as a separate asset. The Company adopted the retrospective guidance in the first quarter of fiscal 2016 (see Note 5).
In June 2014, the FASB issued an ASU on stock compensation which requires that a performance target affecting vesting and that could be achieved after the requisite service period be treated as a performance condition. The guidance is effective for the Company beginning in the first quarter of fiscal 2017. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the pronouncement relative to its stock incentive awards.
In May 2014, the FASB issued an ASU on revenue from contracts with customers which outlines a single comprehensive model to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers and supersedes most current revenue recognition guidance. In July 2015, the FASB voted to defer the effective date of the new revenue standard by one year, but to permit

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

entities to adopt one year earlier if they choose (i.e., the original effective date). The guidance is effective for the Company beginning in the first quarter of fiscal 2019. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the pronouncement.
In January 2014, the FASB issued an ASU which states that companies should not account for certain service concession arrangements with public-sector entities as leases and should not recognize the related infrastructure as property, plant and equipment. The Company adopted the guidance in the first quarter of fiscal 2016 which did not have a material impact on the condensed consolidated financial statements.
Comprehensive Income
Comprehensive income includes all changes to stockholders' equity during a period, except those resulting from investments by and distributions to stockholders. Components of comprehensive income include net income (loss), changes in foreign currency translation adjustments (net of tax), pension plan adjustments (net of tax), changes in the fair value of cash flow hedges (net of tax) and changes to the share of any equity investees' comprehensive income (net of tax).
The summary of the components of comprehensive income (loss) is as follows (in thousands):

Property, Plant and Equipment
During the six months ended April 1, 2016, the Company recorded an additional impairment charge of approximately $1.7 million, which is included in "Cost of services provided" in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Income, to write down the book value of one of its buildings within the FSS North America segment to its fair value. The Company is in the process of preparing this building for sale.
Other Assets
Other assets consist primarily of investments in 50% or less owned entities, client contract investments, computer software costs and long-term receivables. Client contract investments generally represent a cash payment provided by the Company to help finance improvement or renovation at the facility from which the Company operates. These amounts are amortized over the contract period. If a contract is terminated prior to its maturity date, the Company is generally reimbursed for the unamortized client contract investment amount. Client contract investments, net of accumulated amortization, were $815.0 million and $782.7 million as of April 1, 2016 and October 2, 2015, respectively.
The Company’s principal equity method investment is its 50% ownership interest in AIM Services Co., Ltd., a Japanese food and support services company (approximately $164.8 million and $152.5 million at April 1, 2016 and October 2, 2015, respectively, which is included in “Other Assets” in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets).

NOTE 3. SEVERANCE:
During the second quarter of fiscal 2016, the Company continued and refined its focus on streamlining and improving the efficiency and effectiveness of its selling, general and administrative functions. As a result, the Company recorded a net severance charge of approximately $8.0 million during the three and six month periods of fiscal 2016. In the second quarter of fiscal 2015, the Company recorded a net reduction to severance expense of approximately $2.1 million, as a result of additional cost saving and productivity initiatives offset by refinements to the Company's original plans for consolidation and centralization initiatives and actual attrition of the workforce. As of April 1, 2016 and October 2, 2015, the Company had an accrual of approximately $21.5 million and $26.0 million, respectively, related to the unpaid obligations for these costs.
In addition, the Company incurred approximately $4.4 million of severance charges during fiscal 2015 from its decision to exit certain operations within the FSS International segment, $1.5 million of which was unpaid as of April 1, 2016.
NOTE 4. GOODWILL AND OTHER INTANGIBLE ASSETS:
Goodwill represents the excess of the fair value of consideration paid for an acquired entity over the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed in a business combination. Goodwill is not amortized and is subject to an impairment test that the Company conducts annually or more frequently if a change in circumstances or the occurrence of events indicates that potential impairment exists, using discounted cash flows.

During the second quarter of fiscal 2016, the Company made an optional prepayment of $60.0 million of outstanding term loans under its senior secured term loan facility, due September 2019. On May 2, 2016, the Company extended the terms of the Receivables Facility from May 2017 to May 2019. The terms and conditions remain largely consistent and also increase the seasonal tranche capacity of the Receivables Facility to $50.0 million from September to March and May to June.
During the first quarter of fiscal 2016, the Company early adopted the April 2015 ASU on debt issuance costs, which requires these costs to be presented on the balance sheet as a direct reduction of long-term borrowings, similar to the presentation of debt discounts. As a result of the retrospective adoption, approximately $27.7 million of debt issuance costs were reclassified from "Other Assets" to "Long-Term Borrowings" in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet, as of October 2, 2015.
During the first quarter of fiscal 2016, the Company repaid a U.S. dollar denominated term loan of a Canadian subsidiary that had been borrowed under the Company's senior secured credit agreement and was due in July 2016 in the amount of $74.1 million.
On December 17, 2015, Aramark Services, Inc. (the "Issuer"), a subsidiary of the Company, issued $400 million of 5.125% Senior Notes (the "2024 Notes"), due January 15, 2024, pursuant to an indenture, dated as of December 17, 2015 (the “Indenture”), entered into by the Issuer, certain other Aramark entities, as guarantors of the 2024 Notes and the Bank of New York Mellon, as trustee. The 2024 Notes were issued at par and the net proceeds were used for general corporate purposes and to reduce the outstanding balance under the Company's revolving credit facility. The Company paid approximately $6.0 million in financing fees related to the 2024 Notes. The 2024 Notes are senior unsecured obligations of the Issuer. The 2024 Notes rank equal in right of payment to all of the Issuer’s existing and future senior debt. The 2024 Notes are guaranteed on a senior, unsecured basis by the Company and substantially all of the domestic subsidiaries of the Issuer. Interest on the 2024 Notes is payable on January 15 and July 15 of each year. The 2024 Notes and guarantees are effectively subordinated to all existing and future secured debt of the Issuer and the guarantors, to the extent of the value of the assets securing such debt, and structurally subordinated to all of the liabilities of any of the Issuer's subsidiaries that do not guarantee the 2024 Notes.
NOTE 6. DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS:
The Company enters into contractual derivative arrangements to manage changes in market conditions related to interest on debt obligations, foreign currency exposures and exposure to fluctuating gasoline and diesel fuel prices. Derivative instruments utilized during the period include interest rate swap agreements, foreign currency forward exchange contracts and gasoline and diesel fuel agreements. All derivative instruments are recognized as either assets or liabilities on the balance sheet at fair value at the end of each quarter. The counterparties to the Company’s contractual derivative agreements are all major international financial institutions. The Company is exposed to credit loss in the event of nonperformance by these counterparties. The Company continually monitors its positions and the credit ratings of its counterparties, and does not anticipate nonperformance by the counterparties. For designated hedging relationships, the Company formally documents the hedging relationship and its risk management objective and strategy for undertaking the hedge, the hedging instrument, the hedged item, the nature of the risk being hedged, how the hedging instrument’s effectiveness in offsetting the hedged risk will be assessed prospectively and retrospectively, and a description of the method of measuring ineffectiveness. The Company also formally assesses, both at the

ARAMARK AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

hedge’s inception and on an ongoing basis, whether the derivatives that are used in hedging transactions are highly effective in offsetting cash flows of hedged items.
Cash Flow Hedges
The Company has $2.6 billion notional amount of outstanding interest rate swap agreements, fixing the rate on a like amount of variable rate borrowings. During the second of fiscal 2016, $0.3 billion of interest rate swap agreements matured.
Changes in the fair value of a derivative that is designated as and meets all the required criteria for a cash flow hedge are recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) and reclassified into earnings as the underlying hedged item affects earnings. As of April 1, 2016 and October 2, 2015, approximately ($41.4) million and ($43.3) million of unrealized net of tax losses related to the interest rate swaps were included in “Accumulated other comprehensive loss,” respectively. The hedge ineffectiveness for these cash flow hedging instruments during the six months ended April 1, 2016 and April 3, 2015 was not material.
During the first quarter of fiscal 2016, the Company repaid a U.S. dollar denominated term loan of a Canadian subsidiary in the amount of $74.1 million. As a result of this repayment, the Company terminated its $74.1 million of outstanding amortizing cross currency swap agreements, which resulted in a pre-tax charge of approximately $1.1 million recorded to "Interest and Other Financing Costs, net" in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income for the six months ended April 1, 2016. The termination of these agreements resulted in the Company receiving $5.7 million of proceeds.

Derivatives not Designated in Hedging Relationships
The Company entered into a series of pay fixed/receive floating gasoline and diesel fuel agreements based on the Department of Energy weekly retail on-highway index in order to limit its exposure to price fluctuations for gasoline and diesel fuel. During the first half of fiscal 2016, the Company entered into contracts for approximately 34.7 million gallons. As of April 1, 2016, the Company has contracts for approximately 40.5 million gallons outstanding for fiscal 2016, fiscal 2017 and fiscal 2018. The Company does not record its gasoline and diesel fuel agreements as hedges for accounting purposes. The impact on earnings related to the change in fair value of these contracts was a loss of approximately $1.9 million and $2.8 million for the three and six months ended April 1, 2016, respectively. The impact on earnings related to the change in fair value of these contracts for the three months ended April 3, 2015 was a gain of $0.8 million and for the six months ended April 3, 2015 was a loss of approximately $2.8 million.
As of April 1, 2016, the Company had foreign currency forward exchange contracts outstanding with notional amounts of €26.3 million, £58.4 million and CAD157.5 million to mitigate the risk of changes in foreign currency exchange rates on short-term intercompany loans to certain international subsidiaries. Gains and losses on these foreign currency exchange contracts are recognized in income as the contracts were not designated as hedging instruments, substantially offsetting currency transaction gains and losses on the short-term intercompany loans.

Share-based awards to purchase 4.5 million and 2.8 million shares were outstanding for the three months ended April 1, 2016 and April 3, 2015, respectively, but were not included in the computation of diluted earnings per common share, as their effect would have been antidilutive. In addition, PSUs related to 0.7 million shares and 1.5 million shares of performance-based options and PSUs were outstanding for the three month period of April 1, 2016 and April 3, 2015, respectively, but were not included in the computation of diluted earnings per common share, as the performance targets were not yet met.
Share-based awards to purchase 3.9 million and 2.2 million shares were outstanding for six months ended April 1, 2016 and April 3, 2015, respectively, but were not included in the computation of diluted earnings per common share, as their effect would have been antidilutive. In addition, PSUs related to 0.7 million shares and 1.5 million shares of performance-based options and PSUs were outstanding for the six month period of April 1, 2016 and April 3, 2015, respectively, but were not included in the computation of diluted earnings per common share, as the performance targets were not yet met.
NOTE 10. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Certain of the Company’s lease arrangements, primarily vehicle leases, with terms of one to eight years, contain provisions related to residual value guarantees. The maximum potential liability to the Company under such arrangements was approximately $121.0 million at April 1, 2016 if the terminal fair value of vehicles coming off lease was zero. Consistent with past experience, management does not expect any significant payments will be required pursuant to these arrangements. No amounts have been accrued for guarantee arrangements at April 1, 2016.
From time to time, the Company and its subsidiaries are a party to various legal actions, proceedings and investigations involving claims incidental to the conduct of their business, including actions by clients, consumers, employees, government entities and third parties, including under federal, state, international, national, provincial and local employment laws, wage and hour laws, discrimination laws, immigration laws, human health and safety laws, import and export controls and customs laws, environmental laws, false claims or whistleblower statutes, minority, women and disadvantaged business enterprise statutes, tax codes, antitrust and competition laws, consumer protection statutes, procurement regulations, intellectual property laws, food safety and sanitation laws, cost and accounting principles, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the U.K. Bribery Act, other anti-corruption laws, lobbying laws, motor carrier safety laws, data privacy and security laws and alcohol licensing and service laws, or alleging negligence and/or breaches of contractual and other obligations. Based on information currently available, advice of counsel, available insurance coverage, established reserves and other resources, the Company does not believe that any such actions are likely to be, individually or in the aggregate, material to its business, financial condition, results of operations or cash flows. However, in the event of unexpected further developments, it is possible that the ultimate resolution of these matters, or other similar matters, if unfavorable, may be materially adverse to the Company’s business, financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

ARAMARK AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

NOTE 12. FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL ASSETS AND FINANCIAL LIABILITIES:
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. Assets and liabilities recorded at fair value are classified based upon the level of judgment associated with the inputs used to measure their fair value. The hierarchical levels related to the subjectivity of the valuation inputs are defined as follows:
Level 1—inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets
Level 2—inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument
Level 3—inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair value measurement
Recurring Fair Value Measurements
The Company’s financial instruments consist primarily of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable, borrowings and derivatives. Management believes that the carrying value of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable and accounts payable are representative of their respective fair values. In conjunction with the fair value measurement of the derivative instruments, the Company made an accounting policy election to measure the credit risk of its derivative instruments that are subject to master netting agreements on a net basis by counterparty portfolio. The fair value of the Company’s debt at April 1, 2016 and October 2, 2015 was $5,517.1 million and $5,341.3 million, respectively. The carrying value of the Company’s debt at April 1, 2016 and October 2, 2015 was $5,408.4 million and $5,266.0 million, respectively. The fair values were computed using market quotes, if available, or based on discounted cash flows using market interest rates as of the end of the respective periods. The inputs utilized in estimating the fair value of the Company's debt has been classified as level 2 in the fair value hierarchy levels.
NOTE 13. CONDENSED CONSOLIDATING FINANCIAL STATEMENTS OF ARAMARK AND SUBSIDIARIES:
The following condensed consolidating financial statements of the Company have been prepared pursuant to Rule 3-10 of Regulation S-X.
These condensed consolidating financial statements have been prepared from the Company’s financial information on the same basis of accounting as the condensed consolidated financial statements. Interest expense and certain other costs are partially allocated to all of the subsidiaries of the Company. Goodwill and other intangible assets have been allocated to the subsidiaries based on management’s estimates. The 5.75% Senior Notes due March 2020 ("2020 Notes") and the 2024 Notes are obligations of the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, Aramark Services, Inc., and are each jointly and severally guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by the Company and substantially all of the Company’s existing and future domestic subsidiaries (excluding the Receivables Facility subsidiary) (“Guarantors”). Each of the Guarantors is wholly-owned, directly or indirectly, by the Company. All other subsidiaries of the Company, either direct or indirect, do not guarantee the 2020 Notes or the 2024 Notes (“Non-Guarantors”). The Guarantors also guarantee certain other debt.
