NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)
Footnote 1 — Basis of Presentation and Significant Accounting Policies

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Newell Brands Inc. (collectively with its subsidiaries, the “Company”) have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments (including normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair statement of the financial position and the results of operations of the Company. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements, and the footnotes thereto, included in the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K. The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet at December 31, 2022 has been derived from the audited financial statements as of that date, but it does not include all the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for a complete financial statement.

The condensed consolidated financial statements for all comparable prior periods presented have been retrospectively adjusted to reflect the following:

Effective January 1, 2023, as a result of the implementation of a new operating model intended to drive further simplification and unlock additional efficiencies and synergies within the Company, the chief operating decision maker (“CODM”) now reviews the businesses as three operating segments: Home and Commercial Solutions, Learning and Development and Outdoor and Recreation. The Home and Commercial Solutions operating segment represents the combination of the previously reported Commercial Solutions, Home Appliances and Home Solutions operating segments. See Footnote 16 for further information;
A prior-year change in method of accounting for certain inventory in the U.S. from the last-in, first-out method to the first-in, first-out method resulted in an $11 million reduction of cost of products sold and increase to income before income taxes, additional income tax provision of $3 million and increase of $8 million to net income in the Company's previously issued unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022;
A revision associated with an incorrect change in functional currency designation in the prior year resulted in additional expense to record mark to market adjustments of $13 million and $19 million in other (income) expense, net in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, respectively and a reclassification between Accumulated Other Comprehensive Loss and Retained Deficit in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Stockholder’s Equity of $19 million at June 30, 2022. Refer to Footnote 19 of the Company's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed on February 15, 2023.

On March 31, 2022, the Company sold its Connected Home & Security (“CH&S”) business to Resideo Technologies, Inc. See Footnotes 2 and 16 for further information.

Use of Estimates and Risks

Management’s application of U.S. GAAP in preparing the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements requires the pervasive use of estimates and assumptions. The Company continues to be impacted by inflationary pressures, softening global demand, focus by major retailers on the rebalancing of inventory levels, rising interest rates and indirect macroeconomic impacts from the Russia-Ukraine conflict. These collective macroeconomic trends, the duration or severity of which are highly uncertain, are rapidly changing the retail and consumer landscape and are expected to continue to negatively impact the Company’s operating results, cash flows and financial condition during the current year. As consumers continue to face widespread increases in prices and interest rates, their discretionary spending and purchase patterns may continue to be unfavorably impacted. The high level of uncertainty of these factors has resulted in estimates and assumptions that have the potential for more variability and are more subjective. In addition, some of the other inherent estimates and assumptions used in the Company’s forecasted results of operations and cash flows that form the basis of the determination of the fair value of the reporting units for goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible asset impairment testing are outside the control of management, including interest rates, cost of capital, tax rates, industry growth, credit ratings, foreign exchange rates and labor inflation. Although management has made its best estimates and assumptions based upon current information, actual results could materially differ given the uncertainty of these factors and may require future changes to such estimates and assumptions, including reserves, which may result in future expense or impairment charges.

Table of Contents
During the second quarter of 2023, the Company concluded that a triggering event had occurred for an indefinite-lived tradename in the Home Fragrance reporting unit in the Home and Commercial Solutions segment and for the goodwill associated with the Baby reporting unit in the Learning and Development segment, as a result of a downward revision of forecasted cash flows due to softening global demand, primarily caused by continued inflationary pressure that is impacting discretionary spending behavior of consumers, as well as rising interest rates. The Company performed a quantitative impairment test and determined that the indefinite-lived tradename in the Home and Commercial Solutions segment was impaired. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company recorded an aggregate non-cash impairment charge of $8 million, as the carrying value of the tradename exceeded its fair value. The Company concluded that the Baby reporting unit goodwill was not impaired during the second quarter of 2023. See Footnote 7 for further information.

Seasonal Variations

Sales of the Company’s products tend to be seasonal, with sales, operating income and operating cash flow in the first quarter generally lower than any other quarter during the year, driven principally by reduced volume and the mix of products sold in the first quarter. The seasonality of the Company’s sales volume combined with the accounting for fixed costs, such as depreciation, amortization, rent, personnel costs and interest expense, impacts the Company’s results on a quarterly basis. Also, the Company typically tends to generate the majority of its operating cash flow in the third and fourth quarters of the year due to seasonal variations in operating results, the timing of annual performance-based compensation payments, customer program payments, working capital requirements and credit terms provided to customers. In addition, uncertainty still remains over the volatility and direction of future consumer and customer demand patterns, as well as inflationary and supply chain pressures. Accordingly, the Company’s results of operations and cash flows for the three and six months ended June 30, 2023 may not necessarily be indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2023.

Adoption of New Accounting Guidance

Changes to U.S. GAAP are established by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) in the form of accounting standards updates (“ASUs”) to the FASB’s Accounting Standards Codification. The Company considers the applicability and impact of all ASUs.

In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, “Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting.” In January 2021, the FASB clarified the scope of this guidance with the issuance of ASU 2021-01, Reference Rate Reform: Scope. ASU 2020-04 provides optional expedients and exceptions to account for contracts, hedging relationships and other transactions that reference London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) or another reference rate if certain criteria are met. This ASU was further updated with the issuance of ASU 2022-06, Reference Rate Reform: Deferral of the Sunset Date of Topic 848, which extends the sunset date of the guidance. ASU 2020-04 may be applied prospectively to contract modifications made and hedging relationships entered into or evaluated on or before December 31, 2024. The Company adopted ASU 2020-04 and it did not have a material impact on its Consolidated Financial Statements.

In October 2022, the FASB issued ASU 2022-04, “Supplier Finance Programs (Subtopic 405-50): Disclosure of Supplier Finance Program Obligations.” This ASU requires that a buyer in a supplier finance program disclose sufficient information about the program to allow a user of financial statements to better consider the effect of the programs on an entity’s working capital, liquidity, and cash flows. This ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, except for the amendment on roll forward information which is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023. See disclosures hereafter for further information.

Sales of Accounts Receivables

Factored receivables at June 30, 2023 associated with the Company's existing factoring agreement (the “Customer Receivables Purchase Agreement”) were approximately $465 million, an increase of approximately $45 million from December 31, 2022. Transactions under this agreement are accounted for as sales of accounts receivable, and the receivables sold are removed from the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet at the time of the sales transaction. The Company classifies the proceeds received from the sales of accounts receivable as an operating cash flow and collections of accounts receivables not yet submitted to the financial institution as a financing cash flow in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows. The Company records the discount as other (income) expense, net in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations.

Supplier Finance Program Obligations

The Company has worked with its suppliers of goods and services over the past several years to revisit terms and conditions, including the extension of payment terms. Additionally, a global financial institution offers a voluntary supply chain finance program (the “SCF Program”) which enables suppliers, at their sole discretion, to sell their receivables from the Company to the financial institution on a non-recourse basis.

The Company and its suppliers agree on contractual terms for the goods and services procured, including prices, quantities and payment terms, regardless of whether the supplier elects to participate in the SCF Program. Payments terms average approximately 125 days. The suppliers sell goods or services, as applicable, to the Company and issue the associated invoices to the Company based on the agreed-upon contractual terms. Suppliers that participate in the SCF Program, at their sole discretion, determine which invoices, if any, they want to sell to the financial institution. The suppliers’ voluntary inclusion of invoices in the SCF Program does not change the Company’s existing contractual terms with its suppliers. The Company does not provide any guarantees under the SCF Program, nor does it have any economic interest in a supplier’s decision to participate in the SCF Program.

Amounts due under the SCF Program are included in accounts payable in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and as operating cash flows in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows. At June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, outstanding payment obligations under the SCF Program were approximately $92 million and $100 million, respectively.

Footnote 2 — Divestiture Activity

On March 31, 2022, the Company sold its CH&S business to Resideo Technologies, Inc., for approximately $593 million, subject to customary working capital and other post-closing adjustments. As a result, during the six months ended June 30, 2022, the Company recorded a pretax gain of $133 million, which was included in other (income) expense, net in its Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

Project Phoenix

In January 2023, the Company announced a restructuring and savings initiative (“Project Phoenix”) that is intended to strengthen the Company by leveraging its scale to further reduce complexity, streamlining its operating model and driving operational efficiencies. Project Phoenix is expected to be substantially implemented by the end of 2023 and incorporates a variety of initiatives designed to simplify the organizational structure, streamline the Company’s real estate portfolio, centralize the Company’s supply chain functions, which include manufacturing, distribution, transportation and customer service, transition to a unified One Newell go-to-market model in key international geographies, and otherwise reduce overhead costs. The Company commenced reducing headcount in the first quarter of 2023, with most of these actions expected to be completed by the end of 2023, subject to local law and consultation requirements. The Company currently estimates that it will incur approximately $100 million to $130 million in restructuring and restructuring-related charges in connection with Project Phoenix, substantially all of which are expected to be incurred by the end of 2023. These charges consist primarily of $80 million to $105 million in charges related to severance payments and other termination benefits; $15 million to $20 million in charges associated with office space reductions; and approximately $5 million of other charges, including those associated with employee transition and legal costs. The Company expects approximately $95 million to $120 million of the total aggregate charges will be cash expenditures. All cash payments are expected to be paid within one year of charges incurred.

During the three and six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company recorded restructuring charges of $17 million and $53 million, respectively, in connection with Project Phoenix.

Network Optimization Project

In May 2023, the Company announced a restructuring and savings initiative that is intended to simplify and streamline its North American distribution network (the “Network Optimization Project”) in order to improve the Company’s cost structure and operating margins while maintaining focus on customer and consumer fulfillment. The Company initiated implementation of the Network Optimization Project during the second quarter of 2023 and expects it to be substantially implemented by the end of fiscal year 2024. The Network Optimization Project incorporates a variety of initiatives, including a reduction in the overall number of distribution centers, an optimization of distribution by location, and completion of select automation investments intended to further streamline the Company’s cost structure and to maximize operating performance. The Company currently estimates that it will incur approximately $37 million to $49 million in restructuring and restructuring-related charges associated with execution of the Network Optimization Project and expects that the costs incurred will be substantially complete by the end of 2024. This estimate of charges consists primarily of $8 million to $11 million related to cash severance payments and other termination benefits and approximately $29 million to $38 million associated with industrial site reductions. The Company expects approximately $35 million to $44 million of the total aggregate charges will be cash expenditures.

During the three and six months June 30, 2023, the Company recorded restructuring charges of $2 million in connection with the project.

Other Restructuring and Restructuring-Related Charges

The Company regularly incurs other restructuring and restructuring-related costs in connection with various discrete initiatives, including certain costs associated with Project Ovid, the multi-year, customer centric supply chain initiative to transform the Company’s go-to-market capabilities in the U.S., improve customer service levels and drive operational efficiencies. Restructuring-related costs are recorded in cost of products sold and selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations based on the nature of the underlying costs incurred.

During the three months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company recorded other restructuring charges of $3 million and $4 million, respectively and $5 million and $9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively.

(1)In connection with the operating model changes associated with Project Phoenix, the Company determined that six tradenames with aggregate carrying values of $70 million no longer met indefinite-lived criteria and were reclassified during the first quarter as finite-lived tradenames, with useful lives ranging from five to ten years.

Amortization expense for intangible assets was $27 million and $24 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively and $54 million and $51 million for the six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively.

During the second quarter of 2023, the Company concluded that a triggering event had occurred for an indefinite-lived tradename in the Home Fragrance reporting unit in the Home and Commercial Solutions segment and for the goodwill associated with the Baby reporting unit in the Learning and Development segment, as a result of a downward revision of forecasted cash flows due to softening global demand, primarily caused by continued inflationary pressure that is impacting discretionary spending behavior of consumers, as well as rising interest rates. The Company performed a quantitative impairment test and determined that the indefinite-lived tradename in the Home and Commercial Solutions segment was impaired. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company recorded an aggregate non-cash impairment charge of $8 million, as the carrying value of the tradename exceeded its fair value. The Company concluded that the Baby reporting unit goodwill was not impaired during the second quarter of 2023.

Senior Notes

On March 20, 2023, S&P Global Inc. (“S&P”) downgraded the Company’s debt rating to “BB+”. As a result of the S&P downgrade, certain of the Company’s outstanding senior notes currently aggregating to approximately $3.1 billion are subject to an interest rate adjustment of 25 basis points. The change to the interest rate due to the downgrade will increase the Company’s interest expense by approximately $8 million on an annualized basis (approximately $6 million in 2023). In addition, the Company is still subject to the interest rate adjustment of 25 basis points in connection with the Moody’s Corporation (“Moody’s”) downgrade of the Company's debt rating in 2020. Furthermore, as a result of the S&P downgrade, the Company's ability to borrow from the commercial paper market on terms it deems acceptable or favorable was eliminated.

On February 14, 2023, Fitch Ratings downgraded the Company's debt rating to “BB”. This downgrade did not impact the interest rates on any of the Company's senior notes.

Receivables Facility

The Company maintains an Accounts Receivable Securitization Facility (the “Securitization Facility”). The aggregate commitment under the Securitization Facility is $375 million. The Securitization Facility matures in October 2023 and bears interest at a margin over a variable interest rate. The maximum availability under the Securitization Facility fluctuates based on eligible accounts receivable balances. At June 30, 2023, the Company had $66 million outstanding under the Securitization Facility.

Revolving Credit Facility and Commercial Paper

The Company has a $1.5 billion senior unsecured revolving credit facility (the “Credit Revolver”) that matures in August 2027. On March 27, 2023, the Company entered into an amendment to its Credit Revolver (the “Amendment”) to (i) include non-cash expenses resulting from grants of stock awards among the items that may be added to Consolidated Net Income when calculating Consolidated Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (“EBITDA”), as defined in the Amendment, and (ii) lower the Interest Coverage Ratio, as defined in the Amendment, for the fiscal quarters ending on June 30, 2023, September 30, 2023, December 31, 2023 and March 31, 2024.

The Credit Revolver provides for the issuance of up to $150 million of letters of credit, so long as there is sufficient availability for borrowing under the Credit Revolver. At June 30, 2023, the Company had $530 million of outstanding borrowings under the Credit Revolver and approximately $22 million of outstanding standby letters of credit issued against the Credit Revolver, with a net availability of approximately $950 million.

Other

The indentures governing the Company’s senior notes contain usual and customary nonfinancial covenants.

Footnote 10 —Derivatives

From time to time, the Company enters into derivative transactions to hedge its exposures to interest rate, foreign currency rate and commodity price fluctuations. The Company does not enter into derivative transactions for trading purposes.

Interest Rate Contracts

The Company manages its fixed and floating rate debt mix using interest rate swaps. The Company may use fixed and floating rate swaps to alter its exposure to the impact of changing interest rates on its consolidated results of operations and future cash outflows for interest. Floating rate swaps would be used, depending on market conditions, to convert the fixed rates of long-term debt into short-term variable rates. Fixed rate swaps would be used to reduce the Company’s risk of the possibility of increased interest costs. The settlement of interest rate swaps is included in interest expense.

Fair Value Hedges

At June 30, 2023, the Company had approximately $1.1 billion notional amount of interest rate swaps that exchange a fixed rate of interest for a variable rate of interest plus a weighted average spread. These floating rate swaps are designated as fair value hedges against $500 million of principal on the 6.375% senior notes due 2027, $500 million of principal on the 6.625% senior notes due 2029 and $100 million of principal on the 4.00% senior notes due 2024 for the remaining life of the notes. The benchmark interest rate for the $100 million floating swap and associated fair value hedge was amended for a change in benchmark interest rate from LIBOR to Secured Overnight Funding Rate (“SOFR”), effective June 1, 2023, in accordance with ASC 848 (see Footnote 1 for further information). The effective portion of the fair value gains or losses on these swaps is offset by fair value adjustments in the underlying debt.
Cross-Currency Contracts

The Company uses cross-currency swaps to hedge foreign currency risk on certain financing arrangements. The Company previously entered into three cross-currency swaps, maturing in January 2025, February 2025 and September 2027, respectively, with an aggregate notional amount of $1.3 billion. Each of these cross-currency swaps was designated as a net investment hedge of the Company's foreign currency exposure of its net investment in certain Euro-functional currency subsidiaries with Euro-denominated net assets, and the Company pays a fixed rate of Euro-based interest and receives a fixed rate of U.S. dollar interest. During the third quarter of 2022, the Company entered into additional cross-currency swaps with notional amounts of $500 million, with one maturing in September 2027 and one in September 2029. These swaps were also designated as net investment hedges of the Company's foreign currency exposure of its net investment in certain Euro-functional currency subsidiaries with Euro-denominated net assets, and the Company pays a floating rate of Euro-based interest and receives a floating rate of U.S. dollar interest. The Company has elected the spot method for assessing the effectiveness of these contracts. During the three months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company recognized income of $10 million and $6 million, respectively, and income of $21 million and $11 million for the six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively, in interest expense, net, related to the portion of cross-currency swaps excluded from hedge effectiveness testing.

Foreign Currency Contracts

The Company uses forward foreign currency contracts to mitigate the foreign currency exchange rate exposure on the cash flows related to forecasted inventory purchases and sales with maturity dates through June 2024. The derivatives used to hedge these forecasted transactions that meet the criteria for hedge accounting are accounted for as cash flow hedges. The effective portion of the gains or losses on these derivatives is deferred as a component of AOCL until it is recognized in earnings at the same time that the hedged item affects earnings and is included in the same caption in the statements of operations as the underlying hedged item. At June 30, 2023, the Company had approximately $388 million notional amount outstanding of forward foreign currency contracts that are designated as cash flow hedges of forecasted inventory purchases and sales.

The Company also uses foreign currency contracts, primarily forward foreign currency contracts, to mitigate the foreign currency exposure of certain other foreign currency transactions. At June 30, 2023, the Company had approximately $1.2 billion notional amount outstanding of these foreign currency contracts that are not designated as effective hedges for accounting purposes and have maturity dates through May 2024. Fair market value gains or losses are included in the results of operations and are classified in other (income) expense, net in the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations.

Table of Contents
At June 30, 2023, net deferred losses of approximately $17 million within AOCL are expected to be reclassified to earnings over the next twelve months.

During the three months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company recognized in other (income) expense, net, expense of $8 million and income of $2 million, respectively, and expense of $18 million and $1 million during the six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively, related to derivatives that are not designated as hedging instruments. Gains and losses on these derivatives are mostly offset by foreign currency movement in the underlying exposure.

The Company is not a party to any derivatives that require collateral to be posted prior to settlement.

U.K. Defined Benefit Plan

In February 2022, the Company entered into an agreement with an insurance company for a bulk annuity purchase or “buy-in” for one of its U.K. defined benefit pension plans (“U.K. Plan”), resulting in an exchange of plan assets for an annuity that matches the plan’s future projected benefit obligations (“PBO”) to covered participants.

In April 2023, the Company also completed a “buy-out” of approximately 7% of the U.K. Plan's PBO. The “buy-out” was completed by the execution of a Deed Poll Agreement and a Deed of Assignment with an insurance company. In connection with this transaction, during the second quarter, the Company recorded a pretax loss of $5 million in other (income) expense, net, in the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations, related to the prorated recognition of previously unrecognized actuarial losses reclassified from AOCL to earnings.

The Company anticipates the “buy-out” for the remaining PBO of the U.K. plan to be completed in 2023. The non-cash settlement charge associated with this transaction is expected to be approximately £50 million to £70 million.

Footnote 12 — Income Taxes

The Company’s effective income tax rates for the three months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022 was a provision of 48.6% as compared to 21.0%, respectively, resulting from increased discrete tax expense, and provision of 3.7% and of 19.1% for the six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively, resulting from more discrete tax expense combined with year to date pretax losses.

Table of Contents
The differences between the U.S. federal statutory income tax rate of 21.0% and the Company’s effective income tax rate for the three and six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022 were impacted by a variety of factors, primarily resulting from the geographic mix of where the income was earned, as well as certain taxable income inclusion items in the U.S. based on foreign earnings.

The three and six months ended June 30, 2023 were impacted by certain discrete items. Income tax expense for the three months ended June 30, 2023 included a discrete expense of $6 million associated with a tax basis adjustment on a prior disposition. The six months ended June 30, 2023 also included certain discrete items totaling $4 million of additional income tax expense.

The three and six months ended June 30, 2022 were also impacted by certain discrete items. Income tax expense for the three months ended June 30, 2022 included a discrete benefit of $11 million associated with the reduction in valuation allowance related to the integration of certain Brazilian operations. The six months ended June 30, 2022 also included a discrete benefit of $4 million associated with the approval of certain state tax credits, offset by $15 million of tax expense related to the divestiture of the CH&S business.

The Company’s U.S. federal income tax returns for 2011 to 2015 and 2017 to 2020, as well as certain state and non-U.S. income tax returns for various years, are under examination.

Footnote 14 — Stockholders' Equity and Share-Based Compensation

During the six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company granted 1.6 million performance-based restricted stock units (“RSUs”), which had an aggregate grant date fair value of $23 million and entitle the recipients to shares of the Company’s common stock primarily at the end of a three-year vesting period. The actual number of shares that will ultimately vest is dependent on the level of achievement of the specified performance conditions.

During the six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company also granted 2.9 million time-based RSUs with an aggregate grant date fair value of $41 million. These time-based RSUs entitle recipients to shares of the Company’s common stock and primarily vest in equal installments over a three-year period.

During the six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company also granted 0.5 million time-based stock options with an aggregate grant date fair value of $2 million. These stock options entitle the recipients to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price equal to the fair market value of the underlying shares as of the grant dates and vest on the specified anniversaries of the grant dates.

The weighted average assumptions used to determine the fair value of stock options granted for the six months ended June 30, 2023, were as follows:

Risk-free interest rates3.6 %
Expected volatility42.1 %
Expected dividend yield4.4 %
Expected life (in years)6.9

Special Incentive Program

As disclosed in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on May 19, 2023, the Company adopted the 2023 Special Incentive Program Terms and Conditions (the “SIP”) to incentivize performance against multi-year financial goals and to aid in the retention of certain Company executives.

On July 5, 2023, pursuant to the SIP, the Company granted 2.6 million performance-based RSUs, which had an aggregate grant date fair value of $22 million, to the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and the Company’s Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”). These performance-based RSUs granted pursuant to the SIP, entitle the recipients to shares of the Company’s common stock and vest on February 27, 2026, subject to the achievement of the applicable performance goals.

The Company granted on July 5, 2023 an additional 1.9 million performance-based RSUs, which had an aggregate grant date fair value of $16 million, to certain key executives other than the CEO and CFO. These performance-based RSUs granted pursuant to the SIP entitle the recipients to shares of the Company’s common stock and vest as follows: 70% of the total grant will vest on the two-year anniversary of the grant date, and the remaining 30% of the total grant will vest on the three-year anniversary of the grant date, subject to the achievement of applicable performance measures.

The Company granted on July 5, 2023 an additional 1.3 million time-based RSUs, which had an aggregate grant date fair value of $11 million, to certain key executives other than the CEO and CFO. These time-based RSUs granted pursuant to the SIP entitle the recipients to shares of the Company’s common stock and will fully vest on the one-year anniversary of the date of grant.

The vesting of all grants pursuant to the SIP are subject to continued employment with the Company.

Share Repurchase Program

On February 6, 2022, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a $375 million Share Repurchase Program (“SRP”), effective through its expiration date of December 31, 2022. Under the SRP, the Company was permitted to purchase its common shares in the open market, in negotiated transactions or in other manners, as permitted by federal securities laws and other legal requirements. On February 25, 2022, the Company repurchased $275 million of its shares of common stock beneficially owned by Carl C. Icahn and certain of his affiliates, at a purchase price of $25.86 per share, the closing price of the Company's common shares on February 18, 2022. During the three months ended June 30, 2022, the Company repurchased approximately $50 million of its shares of common stock at an average price of $22.01 per share.

Footnote 15 — Fair Value Disclosures
Recurring Fair Value Measurements
The following table presents the Company’s non-pension financial assets and liabilities, which are measured at fair value on a recurring basis (in millions):

For publicly traded investment securities, including mutual funds, fair value is determined on the basis of quoted market prices and, accordingly, such investments are classified as Level 1. The Company determines the fair value of its derivative instruments using standard pricing models and market-based assumptions for all significant inputs, such as yield curves and quoted spot and forward exchange rates. Accordingly, the Company’s derivative instruments are classified as Level 2.
18

Table of Contents
Financial Instruments

The Company’s financial instruments include cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable, derivative instruments, notes payable and short and long-term debt. The carrying values for current financial assets and liabilities, including cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and short-term debt approximate fair value due to the short maturity of such instruments. The fair values of the Company’s debt and derivative instruments are disclosed in Footnote 9 and Footnote 10, respectively.

Nonrecurring Fair Value Measurements

The Company’s nonfinancial assets, which are measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis, include property, plant and equipment, goodwill, intangible assets and certain other assets.

The Company’s goodwill and indefinite-lived intangibles are fair valued using discounted cash flows. Goodwill impairment testing requires significant use of judgment and assumptions including the identification of reporting units; the assignment of assets and liabilities to reporting units; and the estimation of future cash flows, business growth rates, terminal values and discount rates. The testing of indefinite-lived intangibles under established guidelines for impairment also requires significant use of judgment and assumptions, such as the estimation of cash flow projections, terminal values, royalty rates, contributory cross charges, where applicable, and discount rates. Accordingly, these fair value measurements fall in Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy. These assets and certain liabilities are measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis as part of the Company’s annual impairment testing and as circumstances require.

During the second quarter of 2023, one tradename in the Home and Commercial Solutions segment was measured at fair value of $60 million. See Footnote 7 for further information.
