Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements
(Unaudited)
NOTE 1. Significant Accounting Policies
Basis of Presentation
The interim consolidated financial statements are unaudited but, in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments necessary for a fair statement of the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented. These adjustments consist of normal, recurring items. The results of operations for any interim period are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year. The interim consolidated financial statements and notes are presented as permitted by the requirements for Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements and notes included in its most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K.
Effective in the first quarter of 2022, 3M made changes in the measure of segment operating performance used by 3M’s chief operating decision maker—impacting 3M’s disclosed measure of segment profit/loss (business segment operating income). See additional information in Note 16. 3M's disclosed disaggregated revenue was also updated as a result of the changes in segment reporting. See additional information in Note 2. Information provided herein reflects the impact of these changes for all periods presented.
Consolidation and foreign currency translation
Local currencies generally are considered the functional currencies outside the United States with the exception of 3M’s subsidiaries in Argentina, the economy of which is considered highly inflationary and, accordingly, the financial statements of these subsidiaries are remeasured as if their functional currency is that of their parent. Assets and liabilities for operations in local-currency environments are translated at month-end exchange rates of the period reported. Income and expense items are translated at average monthly currency exchange rates in effect during the period. Cumulative translation adjustments are recorded as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) in shareholders’ equity.

3M has subsidiaries in Turkey. Based on underlying indices, Turkey’s cumulative three-year inflation rate exceeded 100 percent in the first quarter of 2022, thus being considered highly inflationary. As a result, the financial statements of the Turkish subsidiaries will be remeasured as if their functional currency were that of their parent, starting in the second quarter of 2022. The operating income and balances of underlying net monetary assets denominated in Turkish lira are not material to 3M.

Earnings Per Share
The difference in the weighted average 3M shares outstanding for calculating basic and diluted earnings per share attributable to 3M common shareholders is a result of the dilution associated with the Company’s stock-based compensation plans. Certain options outstanding under these stock-based compensation plans were not included in the computation of diluted earnings per share attributable to 3M common shareholders because they would have had an anti-dilutive effect of 23.1 million average options for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 8.7 million average options for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The computations for basic and diluted earnings per share follow:

NOTE 2. Revenue
Contract Balances:
Deferred revenue primarily relates to revenue that is recognized over time for one-year software license contracts. Deferred revenue (current portion) as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021 was $549 million and $529 million, respectively. Approximately $200 million of the December 31, 2021 balance was recognized as revenue during the three months ended March 31, 2022, while approximately $180 million of the December 31, 2020 balance was recognized as revenue during the three months ended March 31, 2021.
Operating Lease Revenue:
Net sales includes rental revenue from durable medical devices as part of operating lease arrangements (reported within the Medical Solutions Division), which was $136 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and $140 million during the three months ended March 31, 2021.

NOTE 3. Acquisitions and Divestitures
Refer to Note 3 to the Consolidated Financial Statements in 3M’s 2021 Annual Report on Form 10-K for more information on relevant pre-2022 acquisitions and divestitures.
Acquisitions:
3M makes acquisitions of certain businesses from time to time that are aligned with its strategic intent with respect to, among other factors, growth markets and adjacent product lines or technologies. Goodwill resulting from business combinations is largely attributable to the existing workforce of the acquired businesses and synergies expected to arise after 3M’s acquisition of these businesses.
2022 acquisitions:
There were no acquisitions that closed during the three months ended March 31, 2022.
Divestitures:
3M may divest certain businesses from time to time based upon review of the Company’s portfolio considering, among other items, factors relative to the extent of strategic and technological alignment and optimization of capital deployment, in addition to considering if selling the businesses results in the greatest value creation for the Company and for shareholders. As discussed in Note 16 (Business Segments), gains/losses on sale of businesses are reflected in Corporate and Unallocated.
2022 divestitures and previously announced divestitures:
In March 2022, 3M completed the sale of its floor products business in Western Europe, formerly part of the Consumer business, for immaterial proceeds that approximated the business's book value.
In December 2021, 3M entered into agreements with Neogen Corporation pursuant to which 3M will separate its Food Safety Division business (part of the Health Care business) and combine it with Neogen in a transaction that is intended to be tax-efficient to 3M and its shareholders for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Under the terms of the agreements, which involve a tax-free Reverse Morris Trust, the Food Safety business will be spun-off or split-off to 3M shareholders and simultaneously merged with Neogen. Existing Neogen shareholders will continue to own approximately 49.9% of the combined company and 3M shareholders will receive approximately 50.1% of the combined company. In connection with the transaction, the Food Safety business will incur new debt and fund to 3M consideration valued at approximately $1 billion, subject to closing and other adjustments. The transaction is expected to close by the end of the third quarter of 2022, subject to approval by Neogen shareholders, receipt of required regulatory approvals and the satisfaction of other customary closing conditions. Net sales information relative to the Food Safety Division is included in Note 2. Due to factors such as the potential nature of the transaction and underlying approvals, the Food Safety business is not considered held for sale as of March 31, 2022.
Operating income and held for sale amounts:
The aggregate operating income of these businesses included in 3M's consolidated results, including the announced divestitures, for the first three months of 2021 and 2022 was approximately $30 million and $30 million respectively. The amounts of major assets and liabilities associated with disposal groups classified as held-for-sale as December 31, 2021 were not material.

NOTE 4. Goodwill and Intangible Assets
There was no goodwill recorded from acquisitions during the first three months of 2022. The amounts in the “Translation and other” row in the following table primarily relate to changes in foreign currency exchange rates. The goodwill balance by business segment as of December 31, 2021 and March 31, 2022, follow:

Balance as of March 31, 2022
$4,605$1,813$6,701$249$13,368
Accounting standards require that goodwill be tested for impairment annually and between annual tests in certain circumstances such as a change in reporting units or the testing of recoverability of a significant asset group within a reporting unit. At 3M, reporting units correspond to a division. 3M will continue to monitor its reporting units and asset groups in 2022 for any triggering events or other indicators of impairment.
Acquired Intangible Assets
The carrying amount and accumulated amortization of acquired finite-lived intangible assets, in addition to the balance of non-amortizable intangible assets, as of March 31, 2022, and December 31, 2021, follow:

Non-amortizable intangible assets (primarily tradenames)651 653 
Total intangible assets — net$5,141 $5,288 
Certain tradenames acquired by 3M are not amortized because they have been in existence for over 60 years, have a history of leading-market share positions, have been and are intended to be continuously renewed, and the associated products of which are expected to generate cash flows for 3M for an indefinite period of time.
Amortization expense for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 follows:

The preceding expected amortization expense is an estimate.

NOTE 5. Restructuring Actions
2022 and 2021 Restructuring Actions:
Operational/Marketing Capability Restructuring:
As described in Note 5 to the Consolidated Financial Statements in 3M’s 2021 Annual Report on Form 10-K, in late 2020, 3M announced it would undertake certain actions beginning in the fourth quarter of 2020 to further enhance its operations and marketing capabilities to take advantage of certain global market trends while de-prioritizing investments in slower-growth end markets. In 2021, management approved and committed to undertake additional actions under this initiative resulting in a 2021 pre-tax charge of $124 million. In the first quarter of 2022, management approved and committed to undertake the remaining actions under this initiative resulting in a pre-tax charge of $18 million. This initiative, begun in 2020 and ending with committed first quarter 2022 actions, impacted approximately 3,100 positions worldwide with a pre-tax charge of approximately $280 million over that period. The related restructuring charges for periods presented were recorded in the income statement as follows:
