Booking Holdings Reports Financial Results for 1st Quarter 2020

NORWALK, CT – May 7, 2020. . . Booking Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: BKNG) today reported its 1st quarter 2020 financial results. First quarter gross travel bookings for Booking Holdings Inc. (the "Company," "Booking Holdings," "we," "our" or "us"), which refers to the total dollar value, generally inclusive of taxes and fees, of all travel services booked by its customers, net of cancellations, were $12.4 billion, a decrease of 51% over a year ago (approximately 50% on a constant-currency basis). Room nights booked in the 1st quarter decreased 43% over a year ago. The Company's results for the 1st quarter of 2020 have been significantly and negatively impacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic conditions and government orders.
Booking Holdings' total revenues for the 1st quarter of 2020 were $2.3 billion, a 19% decrease from the prior year (approximately 17% on a constant-currency basis). The Company reported a net loss in the 1st quarter of $699 million, compared with net income in the 1st quarter of 2019 of $765 million, which includes an unrealized loss of $307 million and an unrealized gain of $451 million, respectively, on marketable equity securities. Additionally, the net loss in the 1st quarter of 2020 includes impairments of $489 million for OpenTable and KAYAK goodwill and $100 million for an investment in equity securities. The net loss in the 1st quarter of 2020 was $17.01 per diluted share, compared with net income of $16.85 per diluted share in the prior year.
Non-GAAP net income in the 1st quarter was $156 million, a 69% decrease versus the prior year. Non-GAAP net income in the 1st quarter was $3.77 per diluted share, a 66% decrease as compared to the prior year. Non-GAAP net income includes adjustments to exclude net unrealized gains or losses on marketable equity securities in both periods, goodwill and investment impairments and foreign currency losses on Euro-denominated debt that was not designated as a hedging instrument in the 1st quarter of 2020. Adjusted EBITDA for the 1st quarter was $290 million, a 60% decrease versus a year ago. The section below entitled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" provides definitions and information about the use of non-GAAP financial measures in this press release, and the attached financial and statistical supplement reconciles non-GAAP financial results with Booking Holdings' financial results under GAAP.
"The COVID-19 pandemic has profoundly impacted our Company and the entire travel industry.  We have taken immediate steps to stabilize the Company by reducing costs and bolstering our liquidity position" said Glenn Fogel, Chief Executive Officer of Booking Holdings. Mr. Fogel continued, "Looking forward, due to the value of our platform, our highly variable cost structure and strong liquidity, I am confident that we will emerge from this crisis in a position of strength that will allow us to extend our leadership role in the industry."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") and include all normal and recurring adjustments that management of the Company considers necessary for a fair presentation of its financial position and operating results.
To supplement the Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements, the Company uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: Non-GAAP total revenues, adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income per diluted share and free cash flow (net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures). The presentation of non-GAAP financial information should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.
The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision-making and as a basis to
evaluate performance and set targets for employee compensation programs. The Company believes that these non-
GAAP financial measures are useful for analysts and investors to evaluate the Company's ongoing operating
performance because they facilitate comparison of the Company's results for the current period and projected next-period results to those of prior periods and to those of its competitors (though other companies may calculate
similar non-GAAP financial measures differently from those calculated by the Company). These non-GAAP
financial measures, in particular adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and free cash flow are not intended to represent funds available for Booking Holdings' discretionary use and are not intended to represent or to be used as a substitute for operating income, net income or cash flow from operations as measured under GAAP. The items excluded from these non-GAAP measures but included in the calculation of their closest GAAP equivalent, are significant components of the Company's consolidated statements of operations and cash flows and must be considered in performing a comprehensive assessment of overall financial performance.
Non-GAAP net income is net income with the following adjustments:
excludes an adjustment to merchant revenues related to prior periods due to a correction in the timing of revenue recognition on a component of merchant revenue in the 1st quarter of 2019, which was reversed in the 2nd quarter of 2019,
excludes charges, if any, to correct an error related to the nonpayment of prior-period wage-related tax on compensation paid to certain highly-compensated former employees in the year of separation,
excludes amortization expense of intangible assets,
excludes the impact, if any, of impairment of goodwill,
excludes non-cash interest expense related to the amortization of debt discount and gains or losses on
early extinguishment of debt, if any, related to our convertible debt,
excludes the impact, if any, of significant gains or losses on the sale of cost-method investments and
significant charges related to other-than-temporary impairments of such investments,
excludes unrealized gains and losses on marketable equity securities,
excludes foreign currency transaction gains or losses on Euro-denominated debt that is not designated as a hedging instrument for accounting purposes,
excludes income taxes, if any, related to convertible notes held for investment that matured, and were reclassified from accumulated other comprehensive loss to income tax expense,
excludes the income tax impact, if any, related to one-time adjustments as a result of the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ("Tax Act") enacted in December 2017, if any, and
the income tax impact of the non-GAAP adjustments mentioned above.
In addition to the adjustments listed above regarding non-GAAP net income, adjusted EBITDA excludes
depreciation expense, interest income, interest expense and income tax expense.
We evaluate certain operating and financial measures on both an as-reported and constant-currency basis.  We calculate constant currency by converting our current-year period results for transactions recorded in currencies other than U.S. Dollars using the corresponding prior-year period monthly average exchange rates rather than the current-year period monthly average exchange rates.
The attached financial and statistical supplement includes reconciliations of our financial results under GAAP to non-GAAP financial information for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019.
