SABRE CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
 
1. General Information
Sabre Corporation is a Delaware corporation formed in December 2006. On March 30, 2007, Sabre Corporation acquired Sabre Holdings Corporation (“Sabre Holdings”). Sabre Holdings is the sole direct subsidiary of Sabre Corporation. Sabre GLBL Inc. ("Sabre GLBL") is the principal operating subsidiary and sole direct subsidiary of Sabre Holdings. Sabre GLBL or its direct or indirect subsidiaries conduct all of our businesses. In these consolidated financial statements, references to “Sabre,” the “Company,” “we,” “our,” “ours” and “us” refer to Sabre Corporation and its consolidated subsidiaries unless otherwise stated or the context otherwise requires.
Recent Events—The travel industry continues to be adversely affected by the global health crisis due to the outbreak of the coronavirus ("COVID-19"), as well as by government directives that have been enacted to slow the spread of the virus. As expected, this pandemic has continued to have a material impact on our consolidated financial results in the first quarter of 2022. Despite the continued negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business and global travel volumes, we have seen some continued improvement in our key volume metrics during the first quarter of 2022 as compared to the prior year as COVID-19 vaccines have continued to be administered and some travel restrictions have been relaxed. While domestic bookings continue to exceed international bookings, international bookings also continue to improve, resulting in year-over-year revenue improvement. With the continued increase in volumes, our incentive consideration costs have also increased significantly compared to the prior year.
The inputs into our judgments and estimates consider the economic implications of COVID-19 on our critical and significant accounting estimates. Our air booking cancellation reserve totaled $15 million and $18 million as of March 31, 2022, and December 31, 2021, respectively. Additionally, our allowance for credit losses at March 31, 2022 was $58 million, a decrease of $2 million from December 31, 2021. The provision for credit losses for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was $2 million, and for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was a reversal of $2 million due to the recovery experienced in 2021. See Note 5. Credit Losses.
We believe our cash position and the liquidity measures we have taken will provide additional flexibility as we manage through the global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, we believe that we have resources to sufficiently fund our liquidity requirements over at least the next twelve months; however, given the magnitude of travel decline and the unknown duration of the COVID-19 impact, we will continue to monitor our liquidity levels and take additional steps should we determine they are necessary.
Subsequent to the initiation of the current military conflict in Ukraine, we terminated our distribution agreement with Public Joint Stock Company Aeroflot Russian Airlines ("Aeroflot"). In addition, air travel in and to Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus has substantially declined, including as a result of sanctions imposed on those countries. While none of Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus constituted a significant portion of our financial results in 2021, we have experienced significantly reduced GDS bookings and passengers boarded in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine beginning in the middle of the first quarter of 2022, and these reductions are ongoing. For reference, our Travel Solutions revenue generated in Russia represented a low-single digit percentage of our total 2019 Travel Solutions revenue. An expansion in the scope of the current conflict or any economic disruption, or any expansion of sanctions or export controls, could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations.
Basis of Presentation—The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) for interim financial information. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, these financial statements contain all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring accruals, necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods indicated. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for any other interim period or for the year ending December 31, 2022. The accompanying interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on February 18, 2022.
We consolidate all majority-owned subsidiaries and companies over which we exercise control through majority voting rights. No entities are consolidated due to control through operating agreements, financing agreements or as the primary beneficiary of a variable interest entity.
The consolidated financial statements include our accounts after elimination of all significant intercompany balances and transactions. All dollar amounts in the financial statements and the tables in the notes, except per share amounts, are stated in thousands of U.S. dollars unless otherwise indicated. All amounts in the notes reference results from continuing operations unless otherwise indicated.
Use of Estimates—The preparation of these interim financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires that certain amounts be recorded based on estimates and assumptions made by management. Actual results could differ from these estimates and assumptions. Our accounting policies that utilize significant estimates and assumptions include: (i) estimation for revenue recognition and multiple performance obligation arrangements, (ii) determination of the fair value of assets and liabilities
6


acquired in a business combination, (iii) the evaluation of the recoverability of the carrying value of long-lived assets and goodwill, (iv) assumptions utilized to test recoverability of capitalized implementation costs and customer and subscriber advances, (v) judgments in capitalization of software developed for internal use, (vi) the evaluation of uncertainties surrounding the calculation of our tax assets and liabilities, (vii) estimation of the air booking cancellation reserve, and (viii) the evaluation of the allowance for credit losses. Our use of estimates and the related accounting policies are discussed in the consolidated financial statements and related notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on February 18, 2022. Given the uncertainties surrounding the duration and effects of COVID-19, including any variants, we cannot provide assurance that the assumptions used in our estimates will be accurate and the impacts could be material on our cancellation reserves, credit loss provisions and results of operations.
Adoption of New Accounting Standards
In March 2022, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued updated guidance on derivatives and hedging which allows entities to apply fair value hedging to closed portfolios of prepayable financial assets without having to consider prepayment risk or credit risk when measuring the assets. The amendments allow multiple hedged layers to be designated for a single closed portfolio for financial assets or one or more beneficial interests secured by a portfolio of financial instruments. As a result, an entity can achieve hedge accounting for hedges of a greater proportion of the interest rate risk inherent in the assets included in the closed portfolio, further aligning hedge accounting with risk management strategies. The standard is effective for public entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, with early adoption permitted. We adopted this standard in the first quarter of 2022 and there was no impact to our consolidated financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2022 as a result of the adoption.
2. Revenue from Contracts with Customers
Contract Balances
Revenue recognition for a significant portion of our revenue coincides with normal billing terms, including our transactional revenues, Software-as-a-Service ("SaaS") revenues, and hosted revenues. Timing differences among revenue recognition, unconditional rights to bill, and receipt of contract consideration may result in contract assets or contract liabilities.
The following table presents our assets and liabilities with customers as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021 (in thousands).

(1) Includes contract assets of $12 million and $11 million for March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.
During the three months ended March 31, 2022, we recognized revenue of approximately $7 million from contract liabilities that existed as of January 1, 2022. Our long-term trade unbilled receivables, net relate to fixed license fees billed over the contractual period and recognized when the customer gains control of the software. We evaluate collectability of our accounts receivable based on a combination of factors and record reserves as described further in Note 5. Credit Losses.
Revenue
The following table presents our revenues disaggregated by business (in thousands):

Total Hospitality Solutions56,004 42,215 
Eliminations(5,092)(3,606)
Total Sabre Revenue$584,910 $327,484 
We may occasionally recognize revenue in the current period for performance obligations partially or fully satisfied in the previous periods resulting from changes in estimates for the transaction price, including any changes to our assessment of
7


whether an estimate of variable consideration is constrained. For the three months ended March 31, 2022, the impact on revenue recognized in the current period from performance obligations partially or fully satisfied in the previous period is $24 million, which is due to the recognition of revenue that was previously deferred but became recognizable due to a change in facts and circumstances associated with an IT Solutions customer located in Eastern Europe. It is no longer considered probable that this revenue will be reversed and this amount was fully paid by the customer.
Unearned performance obligations primarily consist of deferred revenue for fixed implementation fees and future product implementations, which are included in deferred revenue and other noncurrent liabilities in our consolidated balance sheet. We have not disclosed the performance obligation related to contracts containing minimum transaction volume, as it represents a subset of our business, and therefore would not be meaningful in understanding the total future revenues expected to be earned from our long-term contracts.
3. Dispositions
AirCentre Disposition
On October 28, 2021, we announced that we entered into an agreement with a third party to sell our suite of flight and crew management and optimization solutions, which represents our AirCentre airline operations portfolio. The assets and liabilities associated with the AirCentre portfolio are presented as held for sale on our consolidated balance sheets as of December 31, 2021. On February 28, 2022, we completed the sale of AirCentre to a third party for cash proceeds of $392 million. The operating results of AirCentre are included within Travel Solutions for all periods presented through the date of sale. The net assets of AirCentre disposed of primarily included goodwill of $146 million, working capital of $18 million, and other assets, net of $25 million. We recorded a pre-tax gain on sale of approximately $192 million (after-tax $121 million) in Other, net in our consolidated statements of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2022.
In connection with the closing of the transaction, we entered into a Transition Services Agreement ("TSA") with the acquirer, under which we will provide transition services consisting of technology, administrative and other services for up to a twenty-four month period to provide for an orderly transition and facilitate the ongoing operations of the AirCentre business. Consideration received under the TSA is primarily based on a fixed fee for each service provided. To the extent a contract was unable to be assigned by the time of close, we will continue to invoice and collect any relevant consideration and transfer the economic benefit to the acquirer.
4. Income Taxes
For the three months ended March 31, 2022, we recognized $1 million of income tax benefit, representing a negative effective tax rate of 1%, compared to an income tax expense of $4 million, representing a negative effective tax rate of 2% for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The effective tax rate remained relatively flat for the three months ended March 31, 2022 as compared to the same period in 2021. The difference between our effective tax rates and the U.S. federal statutory income tax rate primarily results from valuation allowances, our geographic mix of taxable income in various tax jurisdictions, tax permanent differences and tax credits.
In assessing the realizability of deferred tax assets, management considers whether it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income during the periods in which those temporary differences become deductible. We consider the scheduled reversal of deferred tax liabilities, projected future taxable income, and tax-planning strategies in making this assessment. We believe it is more likely than not that the results of future operations will not generate sufficient taxable income in the U.S. and in certain foreign jurisdictions to realize the full benefit of its deferred tax assets. On the basis of this evaluation, as of March 31, 2022, a cumulative valuation allowance of $420 million has been recorded to recognize only the portion of the deferred tax asset that is more likely than not to be realized. The amount of the deferred tax asset considered realizable, however, could be adjusted if estimates of future taxable income during the carryforward period are reduced or increased.
We recognize liabilities when we believe that an uncertain tax position may not be fully sustained upon examination by the tax authorities. This evaluation requires significant judgment, the use of estimates, and the interpretation and application of complex tax laws. When facts and circumstances change, we reassess these probabilities and record any changes in the consolidated financial statements as appropriate. Our net unrecognized tax benefits, excluding interest and penalties, included in our consolidated balance sheets, were $80 million and $85 million as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.
5. Credit Losses
We are exposed to credit losses primarily through our sales of services provided to participants in the travel and transportation industry, which we consider to be our singular portfolio segment. We develop and document our methodology used in determining the allowance for credit losses at the portfolio segment level. Within the travel portfolio segment, we identify airlines, hoteliers and travel agencies as each presenting unique risk characteristics associated with historical credit loss patterns, and we determine the adequacy of our allowance for credit loss by assessing the risks and losses inherent in our receivables related to each.
We evaluate the collectability of our receivables based on a combination of factors. In circumstances where we are aware of a specific customer’s inability to meet its financial obligations to us, such as bankruptcy filings or failure to pay amounts due to
8


us or others, we specifically reserve for bad debts against amounts due to reduce the recorded receivable to the amount we reasonably believe will be collected. For all other customers, we record reserves for receivables, including unbilled receivables and contract assets, based on historical experience and the length of time the receivables are past due. The estimate of credit losses is developed by analyzing historical twelve-month collection rates and adjusting for current customer-specific factors indicating financial instability and other macroeconomic factors that correlate with the expected collectability of our receivables.
Our allowance for credit losses relates to all financial assets, primarily trade receivables due in less than one year recorded in Accounts Receivable, net on our consolidated balance sheets. Our allowance for credit losses for the three months ended March 31, 2022 for our portfolio segment is summarized as follows (in thousands):
Three Months Ended
March 31, 2022
Balance at December 31, 2021$59,646 
Provision for expected credit losses1,997 
Write-offs(3,864)
Other(263)
Balance at March 31, 2022$57,516 

Our provision for expected credit losses for the three months ended March 31, 2022 increased $4 million to a provision of $2 million from a reversal of $2 million in the same period in the prior year. In the prior year quarter and throughout the year of 2021, we experienced the reversal of provisions recorded during 2020, as the economy began to recover and payment experience began to improve. Macro-economic factors, including the economic downturn, lack of liquidity in the capital markets resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and lack of additional government funding, can have a significant effect on additions to the allowance as the pandemic or the current economic environment may continue to result in restructuring or bankruptcy of additional customers. Given the uncertainties surrounding the duration and effects of COVID-19, including any variants, we cannot provide assurance that the assumptions used in our estimates will be accurate and actual write-offs may vary from our estimates.

6. Debt
As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, our outstanding debt included in our consolidated balance sheets totaled $4,749 million and $4,753 million, respectively, which are net of debt issuance costs of $43 million and $45 million, respectively, and unamortized discounts of $14 million and $9 million, respectively.

The 2017 Refinancing included a $400 million revolving credit facility ("Revolver") as well as the application of the proceeds of the approximately $1,891 million incremental Term Loan B facility (“Term Loan B”) and $570 million Term Loan A facility (“Term Loan A”).
On August 27, 2020, Sabre GLBL entered into a Third Revolving Facility Refinancing Amendment to the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the "Third Revolving Refinancing Amendment") and the First Term A Loan Extension Amendment to the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the "Term A Loan Extension Amendment" and, together with the Third Revolving Refinancing Amendment, the "2020 Refinancing"), which extended the maturity of the Revolver from July 1, 2022 to November 23, 2023 at the earliest and February 22, 2024 at the latest, depending on certain "springing" maturity conditions as described in the Third Revolving Refinancing Amendment. In addition to extending the maturity date of the Revolver, the 2020 Refinancing also provided that, during any covenant suspension resulting from a "Material Travel Event Disruption" (as defined in the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement), including during the current covenant suspension period, we were required to maintain liquidity of at least $300 million on a monthly basis, which was lowered in December 2020 from $450 million. In addition, during this covenant suspension, the 2020 Refinancing limited certain payments to equity holders, certain investments, certain prepayments of unsecured debt and the ability of certain subsidiaries to incur additional debt. The applicable margins for the Revolver were between 2.50% and 1.75% per annum for Eurocurrency rate loans and between 1.50% and 0.75% per annum for base rate loans, with the applicable margin for any quarter reduced by 25 basis points (up to 75 basis points total) if the Senior Secured First-Lien Net Leverage Ratio (as defined in the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement) was less than 3.75 to 1.0, 3.00 to 1.0, or 2.25 to 1.0, respectively. These interest rate spreads for the Revolver were increased by 0.25%, during covenant suspension, in connection with the 2020 Refinancing.
On December 17, 2020, Sabre GLBL entered into a Sixth Term A Loan Refinancing and Incremental Amendment to our Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, resulting in additional Term Loan B borrowings of $637 million ("Other Term B Loans") due December 17, 2027. The applicable interest rate margins for the Other Term B Loans are 4.00% per annum for Eurocurrency rate loans and 3.00% per annum for base rate loans, with a floor of 0.75% for the Eurocurrency rate, and 1.75% for the base rate, respectively. The net proceeds of $623 million from the issuance, net of underwriting fees and commissions, were used to fully redeem both the $500 million outstanding 5.25% senior secured notes due November 2023 and the $134 million outstanding Term Loan A. We incurred no material additional indebtedness as a result of these transactions, other than amounts for certain interest, fees and expenses. We recognized a loss on extinguishment of debt of $11 million during the year ended December 31, 2020 in connection with these transactions, which consisted of a redemption premium of $6 million and the write-off of unamortized debt issuance costs of $5 million.
10


On July 12, 2021, we entered into agreements to refinance the Other Term Loan B facility and the Revolver, and terminated the revolving commitments thereunder (the "2021 Refinancing"). We incurred no additional indebtedness as a result of the 2021 Refinancing, other than amounts covering certain interest, fees and expenses. Among other things, the 2021 Refinancing amended the financial performance covenant to remove the minimum liquidity requirement of $300 million, the Total Net Leverage Ratio maintenance requirement, and certain other limitations. The 2021 Refinancing included the application of the proceeds of (i) a new $404 million term loan “B-1” facility (the “New Term B-1 Facility”) and (ii) a new $644 million term loan “B-2” facility (the "New Term B-2 Facility" and together with the New Term B-1 Facility, the “New Facilities”), borrowed by Sabre GLBL under our Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, to pay down in full approximately $634 million of Other Term B Loans and the outstanding $400 million Revolver balance, and to terminate the revolving commitments thereunder. The remaining proceeds, net of a $3 million discount, were used to pay a $6 million redemption premium and $6 million in other fees associated with the refinancing. We recognized a loss on extinguishment of debt in connection with these transactions during the year ended December 31, 2021 of $13 million and debt modification costs for financing fees of $2 million recorded to Other, net. The New Facilities mature on December 17, 2027, and we have the ability to prepay the New Facilities after December 17, 2021 without a premium. In addition, on July 2, 2021, in anticipation of the Revolver repayment and termination of the revolving commitments (and related letter of credit subfacility), Sabre GLBL entered into a new $20 million bilateral letter of credit facility, which is secured by a cash collateral deposit account and included as restricted cash on our consolidated balance sheets.
On March 9, 2022, we entered into an amendment to refinance a portion of the Term Loan B facility (the "2022 Refinancing"). We incurred no additional indebtedness as a result of the 2022 Refinancing, other than amounts covering certain fees and expenses. The 2022 Refinancing included the application of the proceeds of a new $625 million term loan “B” facility (the “New Other Term B Facility”), borrowed by Sabre GLBL under our Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, with the effect of extending the maturity of approximately $623 million of the existing Term Loan B credit facility under the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement. We recognized a loss on extinguishment of debt in connection with these transactions during the three months ended March 31, 2022 of $4 million and debt modification costs for financing fees of $1 million recorded to Other, net. The New Other Term B Facility matures on June 30, 2028 and offers us the ability to prepay or repay the New Other Term B Facility after 12 months or to prepay or repay at a 101 premium before that date. The interest rates on the New Other Term B Facility are based on Term SOFR, replacing LIBOR, plus an applicable margin.
Under the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, the loan parties are subject to certain customary non-financial covenants, including restrictions on incurring certain types of indebtedness, creation of liens on certain assets, making of certain investments, and payment of dividends. We are further required to pay down the term loans with proceeds from certain asset sales, if not reinvested into the business within 15 months, as defined in the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement. As of March 31, 2022, we are in compliance with all covenants under the terms of the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement.
Exchangeable Notes
On April 17, 2020, Sabre GLBL entered into a new debt agreement consisting of $345 million aggregate principal amount of 4.000% senior exchangeable notes due 2025 (the “Exchangeable Notes”). The Exchangeable Notes are senior, unsecured obligations of Sabre GLBL, accrue interest payable semi-annually in arrears and mature on April 15, 2025, unless earlier repurchased or exchanged in accordance with specified circumstances and terms of the indenture governing the Exchangeable Notes. During the year ended December 31, 2021, a certain holder elected to exchange $10 million of the Exchangeable Notes for 1,269,497 shares of common stock, which we elected to settle in shares of our common stock. Additionally, certain holders elected to exchange $2 million of the Exchangeable Notes for $3 million in cash, which we elected to settle in cash. As of March 31, 2022, we have $333 million aggregate principal amount of Exchangeable Notes outstanding.
Under the terms of indenture, the notes are exchangeable into common stock of Sabre Corporation (referred to as "our common stock" herein) at the following times or circumstances:
during any calendar quarter commencing after the calendar quarter ended June 30, 2020, if the last reported sale price per share of our common stock exceeds 130% of the exchange price for each of at least 20 trading days (whether or not consecutive) during the 30 consecutive trading days ending on, and including, the last trading day of the immediately preceding calendar quarter;
during the five consecutive business days immediately after any five consecutive trading day period (such five consecutive trading day period, the "Measurement Period") if the trading price per $1,000 principal amount of Exchangeable Notes, as determined following a request by their holder in accordance with the procedures in the indenture, for each trading day of the Measurement Period was less than 98% of the product of the last reported sale price per share of our common stock on such trading day and the exchange rate on such trading day;
upon the occurrence of certain corporate events or distributions on our common stock, including but not limited to a “Fundamental Change” (as defined in the indenture governing the notes);
upon the occurrence of specified corporate events; or
on or after October 15, 2024, until the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date, April 15, 2025.
With certain exceptions, upon a Change of Control or other Fundamental Change (both as defined in the indenture governing the Exchangeable Notes), the holders of the Exchangeable Notes may require us to repurchase all or part of the principal amount of the Exchangeable Notes at a repurchase price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Exchangeable
11


Notes, plus any accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the repurchase date. As of March 31, 2022, none of the conditions allowing holders of the Exchangeable Notes to exchange have been met. As of March 31, 2022, the if-converted value of the Exchangeable Notes exceeds the outstanding principal amount by $150 million.
The Exchangeable Notes are convertible at their holder’s election into shares of our common stock based on an initial conversion rate of 126.9499 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of the Exchangeable Notes, which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $7.88 per share. The exchange rate is subject to anti-dilution and other adjustments. Upon conversion, Sabre GLBL will pay or deliver, as the case may be, cash, shares of our common stock or a combination of cash and shares of common stock, at our election. If a “Make-Whole Fundamental Change” (as defined in the Exchangeable Notes Indenture) occurs with respect to any Exchangeable Note and the exchange date for the exchange of such Exchangeable Note occurs during the related “Make-Whole Fundamental Change Exchange Period” (as defined in the Exchangeable Notes Indenture), then, subject to the provisions set forth in the Exchangeable Notes Indenture, the exchange rate applicable to such exchange will be increased by a number of shares set forth in the table contained in the Exchangeable Notes Indenture, based on a function of the time since origination and our stock price on the date of the occurrence of such Make-Whole Fundamental Change. The net proceeds received from the sale of the Exchangeable Notes of $336 million, net of underwriting fees and commissions, are being used for general corporate purposes.
The following table sets forth the carrying value of the Exchangeable Notes as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, (in thousands):

7. Derivatives
Hedging Objectives—We are exposed to certain risks relating to ongoing business operations. The primary risks managed by using derivative instruments are foreign currency exchange rate risk and interest rate risk. Forward contracts on various foreign currencies are entered into to manage the foreign currency exchange rate risk on operational expenditures' exposure denominated in foreign currencies. Interest rate swaps are entered into to manage interest rate risk associated with our floating-rate borrowings.
In accordance with authoritative guidance on accounting for derivatives and hedging, we designate foreign currency forward contracts as cash flow hedges on operational exposure and interest rate swaps as cash flow hedges of floating-rate borrowings.
Cash Flow Hedging Strategy—To protect against the reduction in value of forecasted foreign currency cash flows, we hedge portions of our revenues and expenses denominated in foreign currencies with forward contracts. For example, when the dollar strengthens significantly against the foreign currencies, the decline in present value of future foreign currency expense is offset by losses in the fair value of the forward contracts designated as hedges. Conversely, when the dollar weakens, the increase in the present value of future foreign currency expense is offset by gains in the fair value of the forward contracts. Due to the uncertainty driven by the COVID-19 pandemic on our foreign currency exposures, we have paused entering into new cash flow hedges of forecasted foreign currency cash flows until we have more clarity regarding the recovery trajectory and its impacts on net exposures.
We enter into interest rate swap agreements to manage interest rate risk exposure. The interest rate swap agreements modify our exposure to interest rate risk by converting floating-rate debt to a fixed rate basis, thus reducing the impact of interest rate changes on future interest expense and net earnings. These agreements involve the receipt of floating rate amounts in exchange for fixed rate interest payments over the life of the agreements without an exchange of the underlying principal amount.
For derivative instruments that are designated and qualify as cash flow hedges, the effective portions and ineffective portions of the gain or loss on the derivative instruments, and the hedge components excluded from the assessment of effectiveness, are reported as a component of other comprehensive income (loss) (“OCI”) and reclassified into earnings in the same line item associated with the forecasted transaction and in the same period or periods during which the hedged transaction
12


affects earnings. Derivatives not designated as hedging instruments are carried at fair value with changes in fair value reflected in Other, net in the consolidated statements of operations.
Forward Contracts—In order to hedge our operational expenditures' exposure to foreign currency movements, we were a party to certain foreign currency forward contracts that extended until December 31, 2020. We designated these instruments as cash flow hedges. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, we had no unsettled forward contracts.
Interest Rate Swap Contracts—We had no interest rate swaps outstanding as of March 31, 2022 or December 31, 2021. Interest rate swaps matured during the year ended December 31, 2021 as follows:

In April 2018, we entered into forward starting interest rate swaps to hedge the interest payments associated with $450 million of the floating-rate Term Loan B related to the year 2021. In December 2018, we entered into forward starting interest rate swaps to hedge the interest payments associated with $150 million of the floating-rate Term Loan B for the year 2021. We designated these swaps as cash flow hedges.
Subsequent to March 31, 2022, on April 1, 2022, we entered into an interest rate swap to hedge interest payments associated with $200 million of the floating rate Other Term Loan B related to the years 2022 and 2023. The total notional outstanding of $200 million became effective April 30, 2022.
There are no effects of derivative instruments, net of taxes, on OCI for the three months ended March 31, 2022. The effects of derivative instruments, net of taxes, on OCI for the three months ended March 31, 2021 are as follows (in thousands):

8. Fair Value Measurements
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 in the principal or most advantageous market for that asset or liability. Guidance on fair value measurements and disclosures establishes a valuation hierarchy for disclosure of inputs used in measuring fair value defined as follows:
Level 1—Inputs are unadjusted quoted prices that are available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2—Inputs include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets and quoted prices in non-active markets, inputs other than quoted prices that are observable, and inputs that are not directly observable, but are corroborated by observable market data.
Level 3—Inputs that are unobservable and are supported by little or no market activity and reflect the use of significant management judgment.
The classification of a financial asset or liability within the hierarchy is determined based on the least reliable level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. In determining fair value, we utilize valuation techniques that maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs to the extent possible. We also consider the counterparty and our own non-performance risk in our assessment of fair value.
13


Financial Instruments
The carrying value of our financial instruments including cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and accounts receivable approximates their fair values due to the short term nature of these instruments. The fair values of our Exchangeable Notes, senior secured notes due 2025 and term loans under our Amended and Restated Credit Agreement are determined based on quoted market prices for a similar liability when traded as an asset in an active market, a Level 2 input.
The following table presents the fair value and carrying value of our senior notes and borrowings under our senior secured credit facilities as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021 (in thousands):

Assets that are Measured at Fair Value on a Nonrecurring Basis
We assess goodwill and other intangible assets with indefinite lives for impairment annually or more frequently if indicators arise. We continually monitor events and changes in circumstances such as changes in market conditions, near and long-term demand and other relevant factors, that could indicate that the fair value of any one of our reporting units may more likely than not have fallen below its respective carrying amount. We have not identified any triggering events or changes in circumstances since the performance of our annual goodwill impairment test that would require us to perform another goodwill impairment test and we did not record any goodwill impairment charges for the three months ended March 31, 2022 or March 31, 2021.. As we cannot predict the duration or scope of the COVID-19 pandemic, future impairments may occur and the negative financial impact to our consolidated financial statements and results of operations of potential future impairments cannot be reasonably estimated but could be material.
9. Accumulated Other Comprehensive Loss
As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the components of accumulated other comprehensive loss, net of related deferred income taxes, are as follows (in thousands):
 March 31, 2022December 31, 2021
Defined benefit pension and other postretirement benefit plans$(81,678)$(84,773)
Unrealized foreign currency translation gain4,997 6,282 
Share of other comprehensive loss of equity method investments(1,142)(1,796)
Total accumulated other comprehensive loss, net of tax $(77,823)$(80,287)
The amortization of actuarial losses and periodic service credits associated with our retirement-related benefit plans is primarily included in Other, net in the consolidated statements of operations. On March 11, 2021, the American Rescue Plan Act ("ARPA") of 2021 was signed into law, which modified funding requirements for single-employer defined benefit pension plans by restarting and extending the amortization of funding shortfalls and extending and enhancing interest rate stabilization percentages. We have elected to use excess contributions resulting from a reduction to past contribution requirements allowed by ARPA to offset remaining required contributions. As of March 31, 2022, we have not contributed to our defined benefit pension plan in 2022 and do not expect to make any contributions for the year. See Note 7. Derivatives, for information on the income statement line items affected as the result of reclassification adjustments associated with derivatives.
10. Stock and Stockholders' Equity
Preferred Stock
On August 24, 2020, we completed an offering of 3,340,000 shares of our 6.50% Series A Mandatory Convertible Preferred Stock (the "Preferred Stock"), which generated net proceeds of approximately $323 million for use as general corporate purposes. During the year ended December 31, 2021, a certain holder elected to convert 50,000 shares of preferred stock to 595,240 shares of common stock, leaving 3,290,000 shares outstanding.
14


The Preferred Stock accumulates cumulative dividends at a rate per annum equal to 6.50% of the liquidation preference of $100 per share (equivalent to $6.50 annually per share) payable in cash or, subject to certain limitations, by delivery of shares of our common stock or any combination of cash and shares of our common stock, at our election; provided, however, that any undeclared and unpaid dividends will continue to accumulate. Dividends are payable when, as and if declared by our Board of Directors, out of funds legally available for their payment to the extent paid in cash, quarterly in arrears on March 1, June 1, September 1 and December 1 of each year, beginning on December 1, 2020 and ending on, and including, September 1, 2023. Declared dividends on the Preferred Stock will be payable, at our election, in cash, shares of our common stock or a combination of cash and shares of our common stock.
Subject to limited exceptions, no dividends may be declared or paid on shares of our common stock, unless all accumulated dividends have been paid or set aside for payment on all outstanding shares of our Preferred Stock for all past completed dividend periods. In the event of our voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding-up, no distribution of our assets may be made to holders of our common stock until we have paid to holders of our Preferred Stock a liquidation preference equal to $100 per share plus accumulated and unpaid dividends.
We recorded $5 million of accrued preferred stock dividends in our consolidated results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021. During the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, we paid cash dividends on our preferred stock of $5 million.
Unless earlier converted, each outstanding share of Preferred Stock will automatically convert, on the mandatory conversion date, which is expected to be September 1, 2023, into shares of our common stock at a rate between 11.9048 and 14.2857, subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments. The number of shares of our common stock issuable upon conversion will be determined based on the average volume-weighted average price per share of our common stock over the 20 consecutive trading day period beginning on, and including, the 21st scheduled trading day immediately before September 1, 2023. The number of shares issued at conversion based on the unadjusted conversion rates will be between 39 million and 47 million shares.
Holders of the Preferred Stock have the right to convert all or any portion of their shares at any time until the close of business on the mandatory conversion date. Early conversions that are not in connection with a “Make-Whole Fundamental Change” (as defined in the Certificate of Designations governing the Preferred Stock) will be settled at the minimum conversion rate of 11.9048. If a Make-Whole Fundamental Change occurs, holders of the Preferred Stock will, in certain circumstances, be entitled to convert their shares at an increased conversion rate for a specified period of time and receive an amount to compensate them for certain unpaid accumulated dividends and any remaining future scheduled dividend payments.
The Preferred Stock is not redeemable at our election before the mandatory conversion date. The holders of the Preferred Stock will not have any voting rights, with limited exceptions. In the event that Preferred Stock dividends have not been declared and paid in an aggregate amount corresponding to six or more dividend periods, whether or not consecutive, the holders of the Preferred Stock will have the right to elect two new directors until all accumulated and unpaid Preferred Stock dividends have been paid in full, at which time that right will terminate.
Share Repurchase Program
In February 2017, we announced the approval of a multi-year share repurchase program (the "Share Repurchase Program") to purchase up to $500 million of Sabre's common stock outstanding. Repurchases under the Share Repurchase Program may take place in the open market or privately negotiated transactions. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, we did not repurchase any shares pursuant to the Share Repurchase Program. On March 16, 2020, we announced the suspension of share repurchases under the Share Repurchase Program in conjunction with certain cash management measures we undertook as a result of the market conditions caused by COVID-19. Approximately $287 million remains authorized for repurchases under the Share Repurchase Program as of March 31, 2022.
Exchangeable Notes
On April 17, 2020, we issued $345 million aggregate principal amount of Exchangeable Notes. Under the terms of indenture, the Exchangeable Notes are exchangeable into our common stock under specified circumstances. During the year ended December 31, 2021, a certain holder elected to exchange $10 million of the Exchangeable Notes for 1,269,497 shares of common stock. We elected to settle this conversion in shares of our common stock. As of March 31, 2022, we have $333 million aggregate principal amount of Exchangeable Notes outstanding. See Note 6. Debt for further details. We expect to settle the principal amount of the outstanding Exchangeable Notes in shares of our common stock.

11. Earnings Per Share
The following table reconciles the numerators and denominators used in the computations of basic and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations (in thousands, except per share data):

Earnings per share from continuing operations:
Basic$0.13 $(0.84)
Diluted$0.12 $(0.84)
Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing net income from continuing operations available to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during each period. Diluted earnings per share is computed by dividing net income from continuing operations available to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding plus the effect of all dilutive common stock equivalents during each period. The diluted weighted-average common shares outstanding calculation excludes 6 million of dilutive stock options and restricted stock awards for the three months ended March 31, 2021, as their effect would be anti-dilutive given the net loss incurred in those periods. The calculation of diluted weighted-average shares excludes the impact of 2 million and 1 million of anti-dilutive common stock equivalents for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.
We have used the if-converted method for calculating any potential dilutive effect of the Exchangeable Notes on our diluted net income per share. Under the if-converted method, the Exchangeable Notes are assumed to be converted at the beginning of the period and the resulting common shares are included in the denominator of the diluted earnings per share calculation for the entire period being presented and interest expense, net of tax, recorded in connection with the Exchangeable Notes is added back to the numerator, only in the periods in which such effect is dilutive. The approximately 42 million resulting common shares related to the Exchangeable Notes are not included in the dilutive weighted-average common shares outstanding calculation for the three months ended March 31, 2021 as their effect would be anti-dilutive given the net loss incurred in the period.
Likewise, the potential dilutive effect of our Preferred Stock outstanding during the period was calculated using the if-converted method assuming the conversion as of the earliest period reported or at the date of issuance, if later. The resulting common shares are included in the denominator of the diluted earnings per share calculation for the entire period being presented and preferred stock dividends are added back to the numerator, only in the periods in which such effect is dilutive. The approximately 39 million resulting common shares related to the Preferred Stock are not included in the dilutive weighted-average common shares outstanding calculation for the three months ended March 31, 2021 as their effect would be anti-dilutive given the net loss incurred in the period.

12. Leases
We lease certain facilities under long-term operating leases. Operating lease assets are included in operating lease right-of-use (“ROU”) assets within other assets, net and operating lease liabilities are included in other accrued liabilities and other noncurrent liabilities in our consolidated balance sheets. Our finance leases are not material to our consolidated financial statements and have been omitted from the
