|WORLDPAY, INC. filed this Form 10-Q on 05/03/2019|
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (continued)
The Company has agreements with each of its derivative counterparties that contain a provision where if the Company defaults on any of its indebtedness, then the Company could also be declared in default on its derivative obligations. As of March 31, 2019, the Company had not posted any collateral related to these agreements. If the Company had breached any of these provisions at March 31, 2019, it could have been required to settle its obligations under the agreements at their termination value of $15.8 million.
Deal Contingent Forward
On August 9, 2017, the Company entered into a £1,150 million notional deal contingent forward to economically hedge a portion of the purchase price relating to the Legacy Worldpay acquisition. The deal contingent forward settled upon the closing of the Legacy Worldpay acquisition in January 2018 and the Company recognized a related realized gain of approximately $69.0 million, of which approximately $35.9 million of the gain relates to the three months ended March 31, 2018, which is recorded in non-operating expense.
Net Investment Hedges
To help protect the net investment in foreign operations from adverse changes in foreign currency exchange rates, the Company uses non-derivative financial instruments, such as its foreign currency-denominated debt, as economic hedges of its net investments in its Euro and GBP functional subsidiaries (see Note 6 - Long-Term Debt for more discussion on the Company’s foreign currency-denominated debt). The Company designated 100% of its Euro and GBP denominated debt as net investment hedges.
The Company’s net investment hedges are recorded in other comprehensive income (loss). During the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company recognized in other comprehensive income pre-tax losses of $3.5 million and $7.5 million, respectively, relating to these net investment hedges. Reclassifications out of OCI would only take place if the Company’s subsidiaries were sold or substantially liquidated.
8. CONTROLLING AND NON-CONTROLLING INTERESTS
The Company accounts for non-controlling interests in accordance with ASC 810, Consolidation. Prior to the March 2019 Fifth Third Stock Sale discussed in Note 1- Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, Worldpay, Inc. owned a controlling interest in Worldpay Holding, and therefore consolidated the financial results of Worldpay Holding and its subsidiaries and recorded non-controlling interest for the economic interests in Worldpay Holding held by Fifth Third, which primarily represented Fifth Third’s minority share of net income or loss of equity in Worldpay Holding. The Exchange Agreement entered into prior to the IPO provided for a 1 to 1 ratio between the units of Worldpay Holding and the common stock of Worldpay, Inc. Net income attributable to non-controlling interests does not include expenses incurred directly by Worldpay, Inc., including income tax expense attributable to Worldpay, Inc. Non-controlling interests are presented as a component of equity in the accompanying Consolidated Statements of Financial Position.
The Company also records non-controlling interest related to its 51% ownership in a joint venture.
