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: adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) per diluted common share and free cash flow (net cash provided by (used in) 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 (loss) 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 (loss), net income (loss) or net cash provided by (used in) operating activities 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 (loss) is net income (loss) with the following adjustments:
β€’ excludes accruals related to settlements of certain indirect tax matters,
β€’ excludes the termination fee related to an acquisition agreement,
β€’ excludes significant losses on assets classified as held for sale,
β€’ excludes significant gains and losses on sale and leaseback transactions,
β€’ excludes gains and losses on equity securities with readily determinable fair values,
β€’ excludes the impact, if any, of significant gains and losses on the sale of and impairment and credit losses
on investments in available-for-sale debt securities and significant gains and losses on the sale of and impairment and other valuation adjustments on investments in equity securities without readily determinable fair values,
β€’ excludes foreign currency transaction gains and losses on the remeasurement of Euro-denominated debt and accrued interest that are not designated as hedging instruments for accounting purposes and debt- related foreign currency derivative instruments used as economic hedges,
β€’ excludes amortization expense of intangible assets,
β€’ excludes interest received on tax payments refunded pursuant to settlement with authorities,
β€’ excludes the impact of net unrecognized tax benefits related to certain income tax matters, and
β€’ the income tax impact of the non-GAAP adjustments mentioned above and changes in tax estimates, as
applicable.
In addition to the adjustments listed above regarding non-GAAP net income (loss), adjusted EBITDA excludes depreciation expense, interest expense, and to the extent not included in the adjustments listed above, interest and dividend income, and income tax expense (benefit). In the event the Company reports a GAAP net income but a non-GAAP net loss, dilutive shares that are included in the GAAP weighted-average number of diluted common shares outstanding are excluded from the non-GAAP weighted-average number of diluted common shares outstanding. In the event the Company reports a GAAP net loss but a non-GAAP net income, anti-dilutive shares that are excluded from the GAAP weighted-average number of diluted common shares outstanding are included in the non-GAAP weighted-average number of diluted common shares outstanding.
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
2

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 and nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022. We are not able to provide a reconciliation between forward-looking adjusted EBITDA and GAAP net income (loss) because we cannot predict certain components of such reconciliation without unreasonable effort as they arise from events in future periods.

The section below under the heading "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.
"In the second quarter, we continued to see robust leisure travel demand, which helped drive stronger than expected room nights and gross bookings results in the quarter," said Glenn Fogel, Chief Executive Officer of Booking Holdings. "We have seen these strong trends continue into July, and we are currently preparing for what we expect to be a record summer travel season in the third quarter. We are particularly excited about our recently announced generative AI-enabled travel assistants at both Priceline and Booking.com, and look forward to learning which elements customers value the most."

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: adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) per diluted common share and free cash flow (net cash provided by (used in) 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 (loss) 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 (loss), net income (loss) or net cash provided by (used in) operating activities 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 (loss) is net income (loss) with the following adjustments:
β€’ excludes accruals related to settlements of certain indirect tax matters,
β€’ excludes significant losses on assets classified as held for sale,
β€’ excludes significant gains and losses on sale and leaseback transactions,
β€’ excludes gains and losses on equity securities with readily determinable fair values,
β€’ excludes the impact, if any, of significant gains and losses on the sale of and impairment and credit losses
on investments in available-for-sale debt securities and significant gains and losses on the sale of and impairment and valuation adjustments on investments in equity securities without readily determinable fair values,
β€’ excludes foreign currency transaction gains and losses on the remeasurement of Euro-denominated debt and accrued interest that are not designated as hedging instruments for accounting purposes and debt- related foreign currency derivative instruments used as economic hedges,
β€’ excludes amortization expense of intangible assets,
β€’ excludes interest received on tax payments refunded pursuant to settlement with authorities,
β€’ excludes the impact of net unrecognized tax benefits related to certain income tax matters, and
β€’ the income tax impact of the non-GAAP adjustments mentioned above and changes in tax estimates, as
applicable.
In addition to the adjustments listed above regarding non-GAAP net income (loss), adjusted EBITDA excludes depreciation expense, interest expense, and to the extent not included in the adjustments listed above, interest and dividend income, and income tax expense (benefit). In the event the Company reports a GAAP net income but a non-GAAP net loss, dilutive shares that are included in the GAAP weighted-average number of diluted common shares outstanding are excluded from the non-GAAP weighted-average number of diluted common shares outstanding. In the event the Company reports a GAAP net loss but a non-GAAP net income, anti-dilutive shares that are excluded from the GAAP weighted-average number of diluted common shares outstanding are included in the non-GAAP weighted-average number of diluted common shares outstanding.
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 and six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022. We are not able to provide a reconciliation between forward-looking adjusted EBITDA and GAAP net income (loss) because we cannot predict certain components of such reconciliation without unreasonable effort as they arise from events in future periods.

Booking.com & Booking Holdings Again Defendants In Another Libertad Act Lawsuit: "Copacabana Hotel"
October 07, 2020 BKNG

https://www.pacermonitor.com/public/case/36534350/Soto_v_Bookingcom_BV_et_al
https://dockets.justia.com/docket/florida/flsdce/1:2020cv24044/578998

Excerpts From Complaint

The Soto family owned several business ventures throughout Cuba, including the famous oceanfront Copacabana Hotel2 β€œCopacabana”), located at Avenida Primera between 44 and 46 streets, in Havana, Cuba. The Copacabana was inaugurated in 1955, and after Fidel Castro seized power and established a communist government in Cuba in 1959, the Copacabana was confiscated along with the Soto family’s other properties and business ventures in 1961. This forced the Soto family to flee their native country to the United States.

After seizing the Copacabana from the Soto family, the Cuban government, together with Be Live Hotels S.L. and the defendants, exploited and benefitted from the Copacabana for decades without the consent of the Soto family and without paying them any compensation whatsoever. Defendants continue to offer the Copacabana to Floridians3 through their interactive websites, emails directly targeting Floridians, marketing campaigns in Florida, and through work done in their Florida offices. Osvaldo N. Soto now sues to right the defendants’ unlawful trafficking in his property and for just compensation.

On November 22, 2019, Soto informed defendants of his intent to commence an action unless defendants ceased to traffic the Copacabana. See Composite Exhibit D. Despite being on actual notice, defendants continued to market and make reservations at the Copacabana on their websites for their economic benefit.

26. Soto was not eligible to file a claim with the Foreign Claims Settlement Commission under Title V of the International Claims Settlement Act of 1949 (22 U.S.C. § 1643, et seq.), because he was not a U.S. citizen when the Copacabana was confiscated.

27. The Copacabana has not been the subject of a certified claim under Title V of the International Claims Settlement Act of 1949 (22 U.S.C. § 1643 et seq.).

28. Soto has been injured by defendants’ trafficking in the Copacabana without his permission and without paying him any compensation.
