MACY’S, INC.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
 

1.    Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Nature of Operations
Macy's, Inc. and subsidiaries (the "Company") is an omnichannel retail organization operating stores, websites and mobile applications under three brands (Macy's, Bloomingdale's and bluemercury) that sell a wide range of merchandise, including apparel and accessories (men's, women's and kids), cosmetics, home furnishings and other consumer goods. The Company's operations are conducted through approximately 860 Macy's, Macy's Backstage, Bloomingdale's, Bloomingdale's The Outlet, bluemercury and STORY in 44 states, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico. In addition, Bloomingdale's in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and Al Zahra, Kuwait are operated under a license agreement with Al Tayer Insignia, a company of Al Tayer Group, LLC.
A description of the Company's significant accounting policies is included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 3, 2018 (the "2017 10-K"). The accompanying Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and notes thereto in the 2017 10-K.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Such estimates and assumptions are subject to inherent uncertainties, which may result in actual amounts differing from reported amounts.
The Consolidated Financial Statements for the 13 and 26 weeks ended August 4, 2018 and July 29, 2017, in the opinion of management, include all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary to present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position and results of operations of the Company.
Seasonality
Because of the seasonal nature of the retail business, the results of operations for the 13 and 26 weeks ended August 4, 2018 and July 29, 2017 (which do not include the Christmas season) are not necessarily indicative of such results for the full fiscal year.
Reclassifications
Certain reclassifications were made to prior years’ amounts to conform to the classifications of such amounts in the most recent years and adoption of new accounting standards as discussed in more detail below.
Comprehensive Income
Total comprehensive income represents the change in equity during a period from sources other than transactions with shareholders and, as such, includes net income. For the Company, the only other components of total comprehensive income for the 13 and 26 weeks ended August 4, 2018 and July 29, 2017 relate to post employment and postretirement plan items. Settlement charges incurred are included as a separate component of income before income taxes in the Consolidated Statements of Income. Amortization reclassifications out of accumulated other comprehensive loss are included in the computation of net periodic benefit cost (income) and are included in benefit plan income, net on the Consolidated Statements of Income. See Note 4, "Benefit Plans," for further information.
Revenue
Revenue is recognized when customers obtain control of goods and services promised by the Company. The amount of revenue recognized is based on the amount that reflects the consideration that is expected to be received in exchange for those respective goods and services. The Company's revenue generating activities include the following:
Retail Sales
Retail sales include merchandise sales, licensed department income, sales of private brand goods directly to third party retailers and sales of excess inventory to third parties. Sales of merchandise are recorded at the time of shipment to the customer and are

reported net of estimated merchandise returns and certain customer incentives. Commissions earned on sales generated by licensed departments are included as a component of total net sales and are recognized as revenue at the time merchandise is sold to customers. Service revenues (e.g., alteration and cosmetic services) are recorded at the time the customer receives the benefit of the service. The Company has elected to present sales taxes on a net basis and, as such, sales taxes are included in accounts payable and accrued liabilities until remitted to the taxing authorities.
For the 13 weeks ended August 4, 2018 and July 29, 2017, Macy's accounted for 89% of the Company's net sales. For the 26 weeks ended August 4, 2018 and July 29, 2017, Macy's accounted for 88% and 89%, respectively, of the Company's net sales. Disaggregation of the Company's net sales by family of business for the 13 and 26 weeks ended August 4, 2018 and July 29, 2017 were as follows:

(a) Other primarily includes restaurant sales and breakage income from unredeemed gift cards.
Merchandise Returns
The Company estimates merchandise returns using historical data and recognizes an allowance that reduces net sales and cost of sales. The liability for merchandise returns is included in accounts payable and accrued liabilities on the Company's Consolidated Balance Sheets and was $243 million, $291 million and $231 million as of August 4, 2018, February 3, 2018 and July 29, 2017, respectively. Included in prepaid expenses and other current assets is an asset totaling $165 million, $201 million and $159 million as of August 4, 2018, February 3, 2018 and July 29, 2017, respectively, for the recoverable cost of merchandise estimated to be returned by customers.
Credit Card Revenues, net
In 2005, the Company entered into an arrangement with Citibank to sell the Company's private label and co-branded credit cards ("Credit Card Program"). Subsequent to this initial arrangement and associated amendments, in 2014, the Company entered into an amended and restated Credit Card Program Agreement (the "Program Agreement") with Citibank. As part of the Program Agreement, the Company receives payments for providing a combination of interrelated services and intellectual property to Citibank in support of the underlying Credit Card Program. Revenue based on the spending activity of the underlying accounts is recognized as the respective card purchases occur and the Company’s profit share is recognized based on the performance of the underlying portfolio. Revenue associated with the establishment of new credit accounts and assisting in the receipt of payments for existing accounts is recognized as such activities occur. Credit card revenues include finance charges, late fees and other revenue generated by the Company’s Credit Card Program, net of fraud losses and expenses associated with establishing new accounts.
Customer Loyalty Programs
The Company maintains customer loyalty programs in which customers earn points based on their purchases. Under the Macy’s brand, points are earned based on customers’ spending on Macy’s private label and co-branded credit cards as well as non-proprietary cards during certain tender-neutral promotional events. Under the Bloomingdale’s brand, the Company offers a tender neutral points-based program. The Company recognizes the estimated net amount of the rewards that will be earned and redeemed as a reduction to net sales at the time of the initial transaction and as tender when the points are subsequently redeemed by a customer. The liability for customer loyalty programs is included in accounts payable and accrued liabilities on the Company's Consolidated Balance Sheets and was $48 million, $73 million and $61 million as of August 4, 2018, February 3, 2018 and July 29, 2017, respectively.
Gift Cards
The Company only offers no-fee, non-expiring gift cards to its customers. At the time gift cards are sold, no revenue is recognized; rather, the Company records an accrued liability to customers. The liability is relieved and revenue is recognized

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS — (Continued)
(Unaudited)
 


equal to the amount redeemed at the time gift cards are redeemed for merchandise. The Company records revenue from unredeemed gift cards (breakage) in net sales on a pro-rata basis over the time period gift cards are actually redeemed. At least three years of historical data, updated annually, is used to determine actual redemption patterns. The liability for unredeemed gift cards is included in accounts payable and accrued liabilities on the Company's Consolidated Balance Sheets and was $614 million, $821 million and $596 million as of August 4, 2018, February 3, 2018 and July 29, 2017, respectively.
Newly Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which established principles to report useful information to financial statements users about the nature, timing and uncertainty of revenue from contracts with customers. ASU No. 2014-09 along with various related amendments comprise ASC Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, and provide guidance that is applicable to all contracts with customers regardless of industry-specific or transaction-specific fact patterns. The new standard and its related updates were adopted by the Company on February 4, 2018. On the effective date, the Company elected to apply the new guidance retrospectively to each prior period presented which resulted in an increase to retained earnings of $72 million and $54 million at the beginning of fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2017, respectively.

Overall, the new standard did not have a material impact on the results of the Company's operations or consolidated statements of financial position, but impacted the presentation and timing of certain revenue transactions. Specifically, the changes included gross presentation of the Company's estimates for future sales returns and related recoverable assets, presenting income from credit operations, gift card breakage income, and certain loyalty program income as separate components of revenue and recognizing gift card breakage revenue over the period of redemption for gift cards associated with certain returns. The Company's evaluation of the new standards included a review of certain vendor arrangements to determine whether the Company acts as principal or agent in such arrangements and such evaluation did not result in any material changes in gross versus net presentation as a result of the adoption of the new standards.

In March 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-07, Compensation-Retirement Benefits (ASC Topic 715), which requires employers to disaggregate the service cost component from other components of net periodic benefit costs and to disclose the amounts of net periodic benefit costs that are included in each income statement line item. The standard requires employers to report the service cost component in the same line item as other compensation costs and to report the other components of net periodic benefit costs (which include interest costs, expected return on plan assets, amortization of prior service cost or credits and actuarial gains and losses) separately and outside a subtotal of operating income. The Company adopted this standard effective February 4, 2018 on a retrospective basis to each prior period presented and has recognized its net periodic benefit costs, excluding service costs, in benefit plan income, net on its Consolidated Statements of Income.

In 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-18, Statement of Cash Flows (ASC Topic 230): Restricted Cash, and ASU No. 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (ASC Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments. These standards were issued to resolve numerous diversities in practice with regard to the presentation and classification of certain cash receipts and payments in the statement of cash flows. The standards were effective for the Company on February 4, 2018, and were adopted using a retrospective transition method to each prior period presented. As a result of these standards, the Company included its beginning-of-period restricted cash balances of $58 million and end-of-period restricted cash balances of $41 million when reconciling the Consolidated Statement of Cash Flow movement for the 26 weeks ended August 4, 2018. Similarly, for the 26 weeks ended July 29, 2017, the Company included its beginning-of-period restricted cash balances of $37 million and end-of-period restricted cash balances of $40 million. In addition to these changes, the Company changed the classification of $10 million of cash payments for the prepayment of debt from an operating outflow to a financing outflow for the 26 weeks ended July 29, 2017.

In February 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-02, Income Statement - Reporting Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Reclassification of Certain Tax Effects from Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income, which allows for stranded tax effects in accumulated other comprehensive income resulting from H.R. 1, originally known as the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act,” to be reclassified to retained earnings. The Company early adopted this standard during the first quarter of 2018 and, as a result, reclassified $164 million of stranded tax effects to retained earnings.

During the 26 weeks ended August 4, 2018, the Company repurchased $344 million face value of senior notes and debentures. The debt repurchases were made in the open market for a total cost of $354 million, including expenses related to the transactions. Such repurchases resulted in the recognition of expense of $5 million during the 13 and 26 weeks ended August 4, 2018 presented as losses on early retirement of debt on the Consolidated Statements of Income.

During the 26 weeks ended July 29, 2017, the Company repurchased $247 million face value of senior notes and debentures. The debt repurchases were made in the open market for a total cost of $257 million, including expenses related to the transactions. Such repurchases resulted in the recognition of income of $2 million and expense of $1 million during the 13 and 26 weeks ended July 29, 2017, respectively, presented as gains and losses on early retirement of debt on the Consolidated Statements of Income.

During the 26 weeks ended July 29, 2017, the Company also repaid, at maturity, $300 million of 7.45% Senior debentures due July 2017.


4.    Benefit Plans
The Company has defined contribution plans which cover substantially all employees who work 1,000 hours or more in a year. In addition, the Company has a funded defined benefit plan ("Pension Plan") and an unfunded defined benefit supplementary retirement plan ("SERP"), which provides benefits, for certain employees, in excess of qualified plan limitations. Effective January 1, 2012, the Pension Plan was closed to new participants, with limited exceptions, and effective January 2, 2012, the SERP was closed to new participants.
In February 2013, the Company announced changes to the Pension Plan and SERP whereby eligible employees no longer earn future pension service credits after December 31, 2013, with limited exceptions. All retirement benefits attributable to service in subsequent periods are provided through defined contribution plans.
In addition, certain retired employees currently are provided with specified health care and life insurance benefits ("Postretirement Obligations"). Eligibility requirements for such benefits vary, but generally state that benefits are available to eligible employees who were hired prior to a certain date and retire after a certain age with specified years of service. Certain employees are subject to having such benefits modified or terminated.

For the 13 and 26 weeks ended August 4, 2018 and July 29, 2017, the Company incurred non-cash settlement charges of $50 million and $51 million, respectively, related to the Company's defined benefit plans. These charges relate to the pro-rata recognition of net actuarial losses associated with the Company's defined benefit plans and are the result of an increase in lump sum distributions associated with store closings, organizational restructuring and a voluntary separation program, and periodic distribution activity.

Other financial instruments not measured at fair value on a recurring basis include cash and cash equivalents, receivables, certain short-term investments and other assets, short-term debt, merchandise accounts payable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities and long-term debt. With the exception of long-term debt, the carrying amount of these financial instruments approximates fair value because of the short maturity of these instruments. The fair values of long-term debt, excluding capitalized leases, are generally estimated based on quoted market prices for identical or similar instruments, and are classified as Level 2 measurements within the hierarchy as defined by applicable accounting standards.
The following table shows the estimated fair value of the Company's long-term debt, excluding capital leases and other obligations:
