REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of
Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, Inc.
Results of Review of Interim Financial Statements
We have reviewed the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, Inc. and subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of June 30, 2020, the related condensed consolidated statements of income (loss), comprehensive income (loss), cash flows, and equity for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the “interim financial statements”). Based on our reviews, we are not aware of any material modifications that should be made to the accompanying interim financial statements for them to be in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
We have previously audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (PCAOB), the consolidated balance sheet of the Company as of December 31, 2019, and the related consolidated and combined statements of income, comprehensive income, cash flows, and equity for the year then ended (not presented herein); and in our report dated February 13, 2020, we expressed an unqualified opinion (which included an emphasis of a matter paragraph relating to expense allocations for certain corporate functions and services historically provided by Wyndham Worldwide Corporation) on those consolidated and combined financial statements. In our opinion, the information set forth in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2019, is fairly stated, in all material respects, in relation to the consolidated balance sheet from which it has been derived.
Basis for Review Results
The interim financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. We are a public accounting firm registered with the PCAOB and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.
We conducted our reviews in accordance with standards of the PCAOB. A review of interim financial statements consists principally of applying analytical procedures and making inquiries of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters. It is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB, the objective of which is the expression of an opinion regarding the financial statements taken as a whole. Accordingly, we do not express such an opinion.

WYNDHAM HOTELS & RESORTS, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unless otherwise noted, all amounts are in millions, except share and per share amounts)
(Unaudited)

1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION
Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, Inc. (collectively with its consolidated subsidiaries, “Wyndham Hotels” or the “Company”) is a leading global hotel franchisor, licensing its renowned hotel brands to hotel owners in approximately 90 countries around the world.
The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared on a stand-alone basis. The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements include Wyndham Hotels’ assets, liabilities, revenues, expenses and cash flows and all entities in which Wyndham Hotels has a controlling financial interest. The accompanying Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
In presenting the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, management makes estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported and related disclosures. Estimates, by their nature, are based on judgment and available information. Accordingly, actual results could differ from those estimates. In management’s opinion, the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements contain all normal recurring adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of interim results reported. The results of operations reported for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations for the entire year or any subsequent interim period. These Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s 2019 Consolidated and Combined Financial Statements included in its most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and any subsequent reports filed with the SEC.
Business description
Wyndham Hotels operates in the following segments:
Hotel Franchising — licenses the Company’s lodging brands and provides related services to third-party hotel owners and others.
Hotel Management — provides hotel management services for full-service and limited-service hotels as well as two hotels that are owned by the Company.

2. NEW ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

Recently adopted accounting pronouncements
Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments. In June 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the "FASB") issued guidance to replace the existing methodology for estimating credit losses with a methodology that reflects lifetime expected credit losses and requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information to inform credit loss estimates. This guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019 and interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company adopted the guidance on January 1, 2020, as required using the modified retrospective approach through a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the effective date to align the Company’s current processes for establishing an allowance for credit losses with the new guidance. See Note 5 - Accounts Receivable for the impact of adoption.
Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment. In January 2017, the FASB issued guidance which simplifies the current two-step goodwill impairment test by eliminating Step 2 of the test. The guidance requires a one-step impairment test in which an entity compares the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount and recognizes an impairment charge for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the reporting unit’s fair value, if any. This guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019 and interim periods within those fiscal years, and should be applied on a prospective basis. The Company adopted the guidance on January 1, 2020, as required. There was no material impact on its Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and related disclosures.

Table of Contents

Customer’s Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That Is a Service Contract. In August 2018, the FASB issued guidance to address a customer’s accounting for implementation costs incurred in a cloud computing arrangement that is a service contract. The guidance aligns the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred in such arrangements with the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred to develop or obtain internal-use software. This guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019 and for interim periods within those fiscal years. This guidance should be applied on either a retrospective or prospective basis. The Company adopted the guidance on January 1, 2020, as required. There was no material impact on its Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and related disclosures.

Reference Rate Reform: Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting. In March 2020, the FASB issued optional guidance for a limited time to ease the potential burden in accounting for reference rate reform. The new guidance provides optional expedients and exceptions for applying U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") to contracts, hedging relationships and other transactions affected by reference rate reform if certain criteria are met. The amendments apply only to contracts and hedging relationships that reference LIBOR or another reference rate expected to be discontinued due to reference rate reform. These amendments are effective immediately and may be applied prospectively to contract modifications made and hedging relationships entered into or evaluated on or before December 31, 2022. The Company adopted the guidance upon issuance, as required. There was no material impact on its Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and related disclosures.

3. REVENUE RECOGNITION

Deferred revenues
Deferred revenues, or contract liabilities, generally represent payments or consideration received in advance for goods or services that the Company has not yet provided to the customer. Deferred revenues as of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 are as follows:
 
 
June 30,
2020
 
December 31, 2019
Deferred initial franchise fee revenues
 
$
139

 
$
136

Deferred loyalty program revenues
 
78

 
86

Deferred co-branded credit card program revenues

34

Deferred hotel management fee revenues
 
1

 

Deferred other revenues
 
22

 
27

Total
 
$
261

 
$
283


Deferred initial franchise fees represent payments received in advance from prospective franchisees upon the signing of a franchise agreement and are generally recognized to revenue within 12 years. Deferred loyalty revenues represent the portion of loyalty program fees charged to franchisees, net of estimated redemption costs, that have been deferred and will be recognized over time based upon loyalty point redemption patterns. Deferred co-branded credit card program revenue represents payments received in advance from the Company’s co-branded credit card partners primarily for card member activity, which is typically recognized within one year.
As a result of the negative impact that the coronavirus pandemic (“COVID-19”) has had on travel demand, the Company’s assumptions related to redemptions, including estimated member redemption rate, member redemption pattern, and the estimated cost to satisfy such redemptions, have changed. Accordingly, the Company recognized a $16 million cumulative adjustment, which resulted in an increase to loyalty revenues during the second quarter of 2020. Such increase is included within marketing, reservation and loyalty and other revenues on the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Income during the three and six months ended June 30, 2020.

Performance obligations
A performance obligation is a promise in a contract to transfer a distinct good or service to a customer. The consideration received from a customer is allocated to each distinct performance obligation and recognized as revenue when, or as, each performance obligation is satisfied. The following table summarizes the Company’s remaining performance obligations for the twelve-month periods set forth below:
 
7/1/2020- 6/30/2021

Capitalized contract costs
The Company incurs certain direct and incremental sales commissions costs in order to obtain hotel franchise and management contracts. Such costs are capitalized and subsequently amortized beginning upon hotel opening over the first non-cancellable period of the agreement. In the event an agreement is terminated prior to the end of the first non-cancellable period, any unamortized cost is immediately expensed. In addition, the Company also capitalizes costs associated with the sale and installation of property management systems to its franchisees, which are amortized over the remaining non-cancellable period of the franchise agreement. As of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, capitalized contract costs were $32 million and $33 million, respectively, of which $6 million and $8 million, respectively, were included in other current assets, and $26 million and $25 million, respectively, were included in other non-current assets on its Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

(a)

5. ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE

Allowance for doubtful accounts

The Company generates trade receivables in the ordinary course of its business and provides for estimated bad debts on such receivables. The Company adopted the new accounting guidance, ASU 2016-13, Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments on January 1, 2020. As a result of adopting the new guidance, the Company recorded a $10 million (net of $2 million of an income tax benefit) cumulative effect adjustment to retained earnings at January 1, 2020. Since adoption, the Company measures the expected credit losses of its receivables on a collective (pool) basis which aggregates receivables with similar risk characteristics and uses historical collection attrition rates for periods ranging from seven to ten years to estimate its expected credit losses. As such, the Company measures the expected credit losses of its receivables by

segment and geographical area. Beginning January 1, 2020, the Company provides an estimate of expected credit losses for its receivables immediately upon origination or acquisition and may adjust this estimate in subsequent reporting periods as required. When the Company determines that an account is not collectible, the account is written-off to the allowance for doubtful accounts. The Company also considers whether the historical economic conditions are comparable to current economic conditions. If current or expected future conditions differ from the conditions in effect when the historical experience was generated, the Company would adjust the allowance for doubtful accounts to reflect the expected effects of the current environment on the collectability of the Company’s trade receivables which may be material.

Notes receivable

The Company had notes receivables of $15 million, net of a $2 million allowance as of June 30, 2020 and for a significant portion of such notes receivables, the Company has received personal guarantees from the owners of these hotels. In addition, the Company had $18 million of notes receivables which are fully offset in deferred revenues.

6. LONG-LIVED ASSETS

Property, plant and equipment
 
As a result of COVID-19 and the related governmental preventative and protective actions to slow the spread of the virus, the travel industry is experiencing a sharp decline in travel demand. As a result, the Company closed its two owned hotels temporarily for April and May 2020. Due to the temporary closure of such hotels and the continued decrease in travel demand, the Company has evaluated the recoverability of its net property plant and equipment associated with its two owned hotels for impairment in both the first and second quarters of 2020 and believes that it is more likely than not that the carrying value of those assets are recoverable from future expected cash flows, on an undiscounted basis, from such assets.
Although the Company believes that it is more likely than not that the carrying values of its net property, plant and equipment for its two owned hotels are not impaired, the impact of COVID-19 and the ultimate duration remains highly uncertain. Should the current effects of COVID-19 persist for a prolonged duration, the Company's results of operations may continue to be negatively impacted and the property, plant and equipment associated with its owned hotels may be exposed to impairment.
Property, plant and equipment, net as of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 was $294 million and $307 million, respectively.
Intangible assets

As a result of COVID-19 and the significant negative impact it has had on travel demand, the Company performed an impairment analysis on all its intangible assets. The Company evaluated the carrying value of each of its indefinite-lived intangible assets compared to their respective estimated fair values. The fair value of each of its indefinite-lived intangible assets is estimated using a discounted cash flow methodology. The Company also evaluated the recoverability of its amortizable intangible assets by comparing the respective carrying values of the assets to the future expected cash flows on an undiscounted basis, to be generated from such assets. The Company has determined through such analyses that certain of its trademarks, as well as, goodwill associated with its owned hotel reporting unit were impaired. Accordingly, the Company recorded impairment charges totaling $205 million in the second quarter of 2020 to reduce the carrying value of those assets to their estimated fair values. Such charges were reported within impairments, net on the Condensed Consolidated Statement of
