Cost of Revenue
For the second quarter of 2022, total GAAP and adjusted cost of revenue increased 12% and 13%, respectively, compared to the second quarter of 2021, driven by higher merchant processing fees, customer service costs, and cloud costs as a result of increased transaction volume which offset lower personnel costs related to the sale of Egencia in November 2021.
Selling and Marketing
For the second quarter of 2022, total GAAP and adjusted selling and marketing expense increased 43% and 46%, respectively, compared to the second quarter of 2021, primarily due to a $547 million increase in
Page 3 of 18



direct costs driven by an increase in spend across all main marketing channels as well as an increase in B2B partner commissions. Total GAAP and adjusted indirect selling and marketing expenses, decreased 15% and 9%, respectively compared to the second quarter of 2021. The decrease in indirect marketing expense was driven by lower personnel costs related to the sale of Egencia in November 2021.
Technology and Content
For the second quarter of 2022, total GAAP and adjusted technology and content expense increased 3% and 5%, respectively, compared to the second quarter of 2021, due to an increase in personnel costs. The year-over-year increase in GAAP technology and content expense was offset by lower stock-based compensation.
General and Administrative
For the second quarter of 2022, total GAAP and adjusted general and administrative expense increased 3% and 7%, respectively, compared to the second quarter of 2021, due to an increase in personnel costs. The year-over-year increase in GAAP general and administrative expense was offset by lower stock-based compensation.

(2) Expedia Group does not calculate or report net income (loss) by segment.
* Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure. See pages 11-19 herein for a description and reconciliation to the corresponding GAAP measures.
Note: Some numbers may not add due to rounding.

Depreciation and Amortization
Depreciation and amortization decreased 4% in the second quarter of 2022, compared to the second quarter of 2021, driven by lower amortization of certain intangibles.
Interest and Other
Consolidated interest income increased $9 million in the second quarter of 2022 compared to the second quarter of 2021, as a result of higher rates of return. Consolidated interest expense decreased $10 million in the second quarter of 2022, as a result of interest expense related to senior notes outstanding in the prior year that were redeemed in the first half of 2022.

Consolidated other, net was a loss of $385 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared to a loss of $10 million in the second quarter of 2021, primarily driven by mark-to-market losses on minority equity investments in American Express Global Business Travel ("GBT") and Despegar.

Income Taxes
The GAAP effective tax rate was a 46% expense on a pre-tax loss in the second quarter of 2022, compared to a 21% benefit on a pre-tax loss in the second quarter of 2021. The change in the effective tax rate was primarily due to nondeductible mark-to-market adjustments as well as other discrete items.

The effective tax rate on pretax adjusted net income was 21% in the second quarter of 2022, compared to (114)% in the second quarter of 2021. The change in effective tax rate was primarily due to the increase in pretax adjusted net income and discrete items.

Balance Sheet, Cash Flows and Capitalization
For the three months ended June 30, 2022, consolidated net cash provided by operating activities was approximately $1.6 billion. Consolidated free cash flow totaled $1.5 billion, a decrease of $0.9 billion, compared to the prior year, primarily due to a decrease in cash provided by operating activities related to changes in working capital, which was partially offset by an improvement in Adjusted EBITDA.

Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments totaled $5.6 billion at June 30, 2022 compared to $4.3 billion at December 31, 2021. The increase was primarily driven by cash provided by operating activities. Restricted cash and cash equivalents, which primarily consist of traveler deposits for Vrbo bookings, was $2.8 billion at June 30, 2022 compared to $1.7 billion at December 31, 2021. Prepaid expenses and other current assets was $1.2 billion at June 30, 2022 compared to $827 million at December 31, 2021.

Deferred merchant bookings totaled approximately $10.0 billion at June 30, 2022, including approximately $855 million in deferred loyalty rewards compared to $5.7 billion at December 31, 2021, including approximately $800 million in deferred loyalty rewards. The trends in deferred merchant bookings reflect the seasonality of our business, deferred merchant bookings increase in the lead-up to the peak travel season and decrease as stays occur during the summer months.

As of June 30, 2022, Expedia Group had stock-based awards outstanding representing approximately 11 million shares of Expedia Group common stock, consisting of approximately 7 million restricted stock units, ("RSUs") and performance share units, ("PSUs") in addition to stock options to purchase approximately 4 million shares of common stock with a weighted average exercise price of $134.89 and weighted average remaining life of 3.9 years.

On May 30, 2022, Expedia Group redeemed all of the $500 million of outstanding aggregate principal amount of
the Company’s 3.6% Notes due December 2023. On June 13, 2022, Expedia Group redeemed all of the $500 million of outstanding aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 4.5% Notes due August 2024. As a result of these redemptions, we recognized a loss on debt extinguishment of $24 million, which primarily included the payment of early payment premiums as well as the write-off of unamortized discount and debt issuance costs.

Definitions of Non-GAAP Measures
Expedia Group reports Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted EPS, Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Expenses (non-GAAP cost of revenue, non-GAAP selling and marketing, non-GAAP technology and content and non-GAAP general and administrative), all of which are supplemental measures to GAAP and are defined by the SEC as non-GAAP financial measures. These measures are among the primary metrics by which management evaluates the performance of the business and on which internal budgets are based. Management believes that investors should have access to the same set of tools that management uses to analyze our results. These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted EPS have certain limitations in that they do not take into account the impact of certain expenses to our consolidated statements of operations. We endeavor to compensate for the limitation of the non-GAAP measures presented by also providing the most directly comparable GAAP measures and descriptions of the reconciling items and adjustments to derive the non-GAAP measures. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted EPS also exclude certain items related to transactional tax matters, which may ultimately be settled in cash. We urge investors to review the detailed disclosure regarding these matters in the Management Discussion and Analysis and Legal Proceedings sections, as well as the notes to the financial statements, included in the Company's annual and quarterly reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. The definition of Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization was revised in the fourth quarter of 2012 and in the first quarter of 2016 and the definition for Adjusted Net Income (Loss) was revised in the fourth quarters of 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2017. The definition of Adjusted Expenses was revised in the first quarter of 2014 and in the second quarter 2015.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) attributable to Expedia Group adjusted for:
Page 11 of 18



(1) net income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interests;
(2) provision for income taxes;
(3) total other expenses, net;
(4) stock-based compensation expense, including compensation expense related to certain subsidiary equity plans;
(5) acquisition-related impacts, including
(i) amortization of intangible assets and goodwill and intangible asset impairment,
(ii) gains (losses) recognized on changes in the value of contingent consideration arrangements; and
(iii) upfront consideration paid to settle employee compensation plans of the acquiree;
(6) certain other items, including restructuring;
(7) items included in legal reserves, occupancy tax and other, which includes reserves for potential settlement of issues related to transactional taxes (e.g. hotel and excise taxes), related to court decisions and final settlements, and charges incurred, if any, for monies that may be required to be paid in advance of litigation in certain transactional tax proceedings;
(8) that portion of gains (losses) on revenue hedging activities that are included in other, net that relate to revenue recognized in the period; and
(9) depreciation.
The above items are excluded from our Adjusted EBITDA measure because these items are non-cash in nature, or because the amount and timing of these items is unpredictable, not driven by core operating results and renders comparisons with prior periods and competitors less meaningful. We believe Adjusted EBITDA is a useful measure for analysts and investors to evaluate our future on-going performance as this measure allows a more meaningful comparison of our performance and projected cash earnings with our historical results from prior periods and to the results of our competitors. Moreover, our management uses this measure internally to evaluate the performance of our business as a whole and our individual business segments. In addition, we believe that by excluding certain items, such as stock-based compensation and acquisition-related impacts, Adjusted EBITDA corresponds more closely to the cash operating income generated from our business and allows investors to gain an understanding of the factors and trends affecting the ongoing cash earnings capabilities of our business, from which capital investments are made and debt is serviced.

Adjusted Net Income (Loss) generally captures all items on the statements of operations that occur in normal course operations and have been, or ultimately will be, settled in cash and is defined as net income (loss) attributable to Expedia Group plus the following items, net of tax:
(1) stock-based compensation expense, including compensation expense related to equity plans of certain subsidiaries and equity-method investments;
(2) acquisition-related impacts, including;
(i) amortization of intangible assets, including as part of equity-method investments, and goodwill and intangible asset impairment;
(ii) gains (losses) recognized on changes in the value of contingent consideration arrangements;
(iii) upfront consideration paid to settle employee compensation plans of the acquiree; and
(iv) gains (losses) recognized on non-controlling investment basis adjustments when we acquire or lose controlling interests;
(3) currency gains or losses on U.S. dollar denominated cash;
(4) since adoption of new accounting guidance in the first quarter of 2018, the changes in fair value of equity investments;
(5) certain other items, including restructuring charges;
(6) items included in legal reserves, occupancy tax and other, which includes reserves for potential settlement of issues related to transactional taxes (e.g., hotel occupancy and excise taxes), related court decisions and final settlements, and charges incurred, if any, for monies that may be required to be paid in advance of litigation in certain transactional tax proceedings, including as part of equity method investments;
(7) discontinued operations;
(8) the non-controlling interest impact of the aforementioned adjustment items; and
(9) unrealized gains (losses) on revenue hedging activities that are included in other, net.
Adjusted Net Income (Loss) includes preferred share dividends. We believe Adjusted Net Income (Loss) is useful to investors because it represents Expedia Group's combined results, taking into account depreciation, which
Page 12 of 18



management believes is an ongoing cost of doing business, but excluding the impact of certain expenses and items not directly tied to the core operations of our businesses.

Adjusted EPS is defined as Adjusted Net Income (Loss) divided by adjusted weighted average shares outstanding, which, when applicable, include dilution from our convertible debt instruments per the treasury stock method for Adjusted EPS. The treasury stock method assumes we would elect to settle the principal amount of the debt for cash and the conversion premium for shares. If the conversion prices for such instruments exceed our average stock price for the period, the instruments generally would have no impact to adjusted weighted average shares outstanding. This differs from the GAAP method for dilution from our convertible debt instruments, which include them on an if-converted method. We believe Adjusted EPS is useful to investors because it represents, on a per share basis, Expedia Group's consolidated results, taking into account depreciation, which we believe is an ongoing cost of doing business, as well as other items which are not allocated to the operating businesses such as interest expense, taxes, foreign exchange gains or losses, and minority interest, but excluding the effects of certain expenses not directly tied to the core operations of our businesses. Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted EPS have similar limitations as Adjusted EBITDA. In addition, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) does not include all items that affect our net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share for the period. Therefore, we think it is important to evaluate these measures along with our consolidated statements of operations.

Free Cash Flow is defined as net cash flow provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. Management believes Free Cash Flow is useful to investors because it represents the operating cash flow that our operating businesses generate, less capital expenditures but before taking into account other cash movements that are not directly tied to the core operations of our businesses, such as financing activities, foreign exchange or certain investing activities. We added additional detail for the capital expenditures associated with building our new headquarters facility in Seattle, Washington. We believe separating out capital expenditures for this discrete project is important to provide additional transparency to investors related to operating versus project-related capital expenditures. Free Cash Flow has certain limitations in that it does not represent the total increase or decrease in the cash balance for the period, nor does it represent the residual cash flow for discretionary expenditures. Therefore, it is important to evaluate Free Cash Flow along with the consolidated statements of cash flows.

Adjusted Expenses (cost of revenue, selling and marketing, technology and content and general and administrative expenses) exclude stock-based compensation related to expenses for stock options, restricted stock units and other equity compensation under applicable stock-based compensation accounting standards. Expedia Group excludes stock-based compensation from these measures primarily because they are non-cash expenses that we do not believe are necessarily reflective of our ongoing cash operating expenses and cash operating income. Moreover, because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of award types that companies can use when adopting applicable stock-based compensation accounting standards, management believes that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude stock-based compensation allows investors to make meaningful comparisons between our recurring core business operating results and those of other companies, as well as providing management with an important tool for financial operational decision making and for evaluating our own recurring core business operating results over different periods of time. There are certain limitations in using financial measures that do not take into account stock-based compensation, including the fact that stock-based compensation is a recurring expense and a valued part of employees' compensation. Therefore, it is important to evaluate both our GAAP and non-GAAP measures. See the Notes to the Consolidated Statements of Operations for stock-based compensation by line item.

Expedia Group, Inc. (excluding trivago) In order to provide increased transparency on the transaction-based component of the business, Expedia Group is reporting results both in total and excluding trivago.

In addition, we evaluate certain operating and financial measures, including revenue growth, on both an as-reported and excluding the impact of foreign exchange, FX neutral, basis. FX neutral results are among the primary metrics by which management evaluates the performance of the business and management believes that investors should have access to the same set of tools that management uses to analyze our results. We estimate FX neutral revenue growth by (i) excluding the FX impacts resulting from the time period between a transaction's booking date and
Page 13 of 18



revenue recognition date for both the current and prior year periods, and (ii) converting our current-year period results for transactions recorded in currencies other than U.S. Dollars using the corresponding prior-year period exchange rates rather than the current-year period exchange rates.

We base the allocations primarily on transaction volumes and other usage metrics. We do not allocate certain shared expenses such as accounting, human resources, certain information technology and legal to our reportable segments. We include these expenses in Corporate and Eliminations. Our allocation methodology is periodically evaluated and may change.
