Note 3. Net Revenue

On an ongoing basis the Company reviews the categories that best depict how the nature, timing and uncertainty of revenue cash flows are affected by economic factors. The following table presents the Company’s revenue disaggregated based on revenue source and timing of revenue recognition for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2022 and 2021. The Company believes these categories best depict the nature and timing of revenue:

Note 4. Income taxes

For tax reporting purposes, the Company consolidates its entities under GLOBALFOUNDRIES Inc., a Cayman Islands entity. As a Cayman Islands corporation, the Company’s domestic statutory income tax rate is 0.0%. The difference between the Company’s domestic statutory income tax rate and its (provision) benefit for income taxes is due to the effect of the tax rates in the other jurisdictions in which the Company operates.

The effective tax rate for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021 was 9.1% and (21.3)%, respectively. The increase for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 compared to the prior year was primarily due to a higher mix of income in jurisdictions with higher tax rates than the Cayman statutory tax rate and incremental withholding taxes incurred.

In addition to the above, the Company obtained letters of credit to primarily guarantee payments for utility supplies and foreign statutory payroll related charges. The Company has available letters of credit of $20 million September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021 and has drawn down bank guarantees of $3 million as of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021.

Contingencies — From time to time, the Company is a party to claims that arise in the normal course of business. These claims include allegations of infringement of intellectual property rights of others as well as other claims of liability. In addition, the Company, on a case by case basis, includes intellectual property indemnification provisions in the terms of sale and technology licenses with third parties. The Company is also subject to various taxes in the different jurisdictions in which it operates. These include property, goods and services, and other non-income taxes. The Company accrues costs associated with these matters when they become probable and reasonably estimable. The Company does not believe it is probable that losses associated with these matters beyond those already recognized will be incurred in amounts that would be material to the interim condensed consolidated statements of financial position or interim condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income (loss).
On April 28, 2021, International Business Machines (“IBM”) sent the Company a letter alleging that the Company did not fulfill the Company’s obligations under the contracts the Company entered into with IBM in 2014 associated with the Company’s acquisition of IBM’s Microelectronics business. IBM asserted that the Company engaged in fraudulent misrepresentations during the underlying negotiations, and claimed the Company owed them at least $2.5 billion damages and restitution. On June 7, 2021, the Company filed a complaint with the New York State Supreme Court (the “Court”) seeking a declaratory judgment that the Company did not breach the relevant contracts. IBM subsequently filed its complaint with the Court on June 8, 2021. On September 14, 2021, the Court granted the Company's motion to dismiss IBM’s claims of fraud, unjust enrichment and breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing. IBM appealed its fraud claim, and on April 7, 2022, the New York Appellate Division reversed the Court’s decision. The Company believes, based on discussions with legal counsel, that it has meritorious defenses against IBM’s claims. The Company disputes IBM’s claims and intends to vigorously defend against them.

Note 11. Fair Value Measurements

The fair value of a financial instrument is the amount 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. The Company uses the following hierarchy for determining and disclosing the fair value of financial instruments by valuation technique:
Level 1: observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;
Level 2: inputs other than quoted prices in active markets in Level 1, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the asset or liability; and
Level 3: unobservable inputs for which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring management judgment to develop the Company’s own models with estimates and assumptions.
Cash Equivalents - Cash equivalents include investments in government obligation-based money market funds, other money market instruments and interest-bearing deposits with initial or remaining terms of three months or less. The fair value of cash equivalents approximates its carrying value due to the short-term nature of these instruments.

Marketable Securities - Marketable securities include U.S. Treasury Securities, U.S. Government Sponsored Enterprises, floating rate securities, money market mutual funds, corporate debt instruments and other Notes, bonds or debt securities issued by non-U.S. sovereign or multilateral entities, as these securities all have quoted prices in active markets.

Financial Instruments Not Recorded at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis

GLOBALFOUNDRIES INC.

NOTES TO INTERIM CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Financial instruments not recorded at fair value on a recurring basis include grants receivable, loans receivable, lease obligations and the Company’s current and noncurrent portion of long-term debt.
The carrying and fair values of the Company’s financial instruments not recorded at fair value on a recurring basis are presented in the following table, classified according to the categories of financial liabilities at amortized cost (“FLAC”):

Total$2,216 $2,138 $2,013$2,006

Estimated fair values of long-term debt are based on quoted prices for similar liabilities for which significant inputs are observable and represents a Level 2 valuation. The fair values are estimated based on the type of debt and their maturities. The Company estimates the fair value using market interest rates of debts with similar maturities.

Note 12. Share-Based Compensation
We measure and recognize compensation expense related to share-based transactions, including employee, consultant, and non-employee director share option awards, in our consolidated financial statements based on fair value. We estimate the share option fair value at the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option pricing model, which requires management to make certain assumptions of future expectations based on historical and current data. The assumptions include the expected term of the share option, expected volatility, dividend yield, and risk-free interest rate. The expected term represents the amount of time that options granted are expected to be outstanding, based on forecasted exercise behavior. The risk-free rate is based on the rate at grant date of zero- coupon Treasury notes with a term comparable to the expected term of the option. We estimate expected volatility based on the historical volatility of comparable public entities’ share price from the same industry. We base our dividend yield on forecasted expected payments, which we expect to be zero for the immediate future. We recognize compensation expense over the vesting period of the award on a graded attribution basis, and we estimate forfeitures.

Employee Stock Purchase Plan

In connection with, and prior to the consummation of, the Company's initial public offering, the Company's board of
directors adopted the GLOBALFOUNDRIES Inc. 2021 Employee Stock Purchase Plan (the “ESPP”). The ESPP is administered by the Company's board of directors or, as applicable, its delegate (the “ESPP Administrator”).

Subject to certain equitable adjustments in connection with certain events affecting the outstanding ordinary shares
reserved for issuance as awards, the maximum aggregate number of our ordinary shares that may be issued or transferred under the ESPP with respect to awards is 7,500,000 ordinary shares; provided that the share reserve under the ESPP will, unless otherwise determined by our board of directors, automatically increase on January 1 of each year for 8 years commencing on January 1, 2023 and ending on (and including) January 1, 2031 in an amount equal to 0.25% of the total number of ordinary shares outstanding on December 31 of the preceding year. In no event will the number of ordinary shares that may be issued or transferred pursuant to rights granted under the ESPP exceed 18,750,000, in the aggregate, subject to the adjustments described above.

Performance Stock Units

During the second quarter of 2022, the Company awarded Performance Stock Units (“PSUs”) to certain senior level employees, which will vest if certain financial performance objectives are achieved over 2 years to 3 years performance periods and the grantee remains employed by the Company through that performance period. Each PSU represents a contingent right to receive shares of the Company’s stock if the Company meets certain performance measures over the requisite period. The PSU awards entitle recipients to receive, upon vesting, a number of shares that ranges from 0% to 200% of the number of PSUs awarded, depending on the level of achievement of the specified performance conditions.

Forward-looking Statements

This document includes “forward-looking statements” that reflect our current expectations and views of future events. These forward-looking statements are made under the "safe harbor" provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and include but are not limited to, statements regarding our financial outlook, future guidance, product development, business strategy and plans, and market trends, opportunities and positioning. These statements are based on current expectations, assumptions, estimates, forecasts, projections and limited information available at the time they are made. Words such as “expect,” “anticipate,” “should,” “believe,” “hope,” “target,” “project,” “goals,” “estimate,” “potential,” “predict,” “may,” “will,” “might,” “could,” “intend,” “shall,” "outlook," "on track," and variations of these terms or the negative of these terms and similar expressions are intended to identify these forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. Forward-looking statements are subject to a broad variety of risks and uncertainties, both known and unknown. Any inaccuracy in our assumptions and estimates could affect the realization of the expectations or forecasts in these forward-looking statements. For example, our business could be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and supply chain disruptions due to the Russia/Ukraine conflict and actions taken in response to such events; the market for our products may develop more slowly than expected or than it has in the past; our operating results may fluctuate more than expected; there may be significant fluctuations in our results of operations and cash flows related to our revenue recognition or otherwise; a network or data security incident that allows unauthorized access to our network or data or our customers’ data could damage our reputation; we could experience interruptions or performance problems associated with our technology, including a service outage; and global economic conditions could deteriorate, including due to increasing interest rates, rising inflation, and any potential recession. It is not possible for us to predict all risks, nor can we assess the impact of all factors on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results or outcomes to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements we may make. Moreover, we operate in a competitive and rapidly changing market, and new risks may emerge from time to time. You should not rely upon forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. These statements are based on our historical performance and on our current plans, estimates and projections in light of information currently available to us, and therefore you should not place undue reliance on them.

Although we believe that the expectations reflected in our statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee that the future results, levels of activity, performance or events and circumstances described in the forward-looking statements will be achieved or occur. Moreover, neither we, nor any other person, assumes responsibility for the accuracy and completeness of these statements.

OPERATING AND FINANCIAL REVIEWS AND PROSPECTS
Overview
GLOBALFOUNDRIES Inc. (“We,” “GF,” or the “Company”) is one of the world’s leading semiconductor foundries. We manufacture complex, feature-rich integrated circuits (“ICs”) that enable billions of electronic devices that are pervasive throughout nearly every sector of the global economy. With our specialized foundry manufacturing processes, a library consisting of thousands of IP titles, and differentiated transistor and device technology, we serve a broad range of customers, including the global leaders in IC design, and provide optimized solutions for the function, performance and power requirements of critical applications driving key secular growth end markets.

The combination of our highly-differentiated technology and our scaled manufacturing footprint enables us to attract a large share of single-sourced products and long-term supply agreements, providing a high degree of revenue visibility and significant operating leverage, resulting in improved financial performance and bottom line growth. As of September 30, 2022, the aggregate long-term revenue commitment reflected by these agreements amounted to $27 billion, including more than $10 billion during the period from January 2022 through December 2023 and more than $3.5 billion in advanced payments and capacity reservation fees. These agreements include binding, multi-year, reciprocal annual (and, in some cases, quarterly) minimum purchase and supply commitments with wafer pricing and associated mechanics outlined for the contract term. Through an intense focus on collaboration, we have built deep strategic partnerships with a broad base of more than 38 customers as of September 30, 2022, many of whom are the global leaders in their field.

Against the backdrop of increasing macroeconomic and geopolitical uncertainty, recently, some customers under long term agreements (“LTAs”) have requested to adjust downward their 2023 demand outlook, which could eventually lead to softening orders and revenue. We continue to pay close attention to the overall economic environment and are working closely with customers to monitor demand.

Components of Results of Operations

Net Revenue

We generate the majority of our revenue from volume production and sales of semiconductor wafers, which are priced on a per-wafer basis for the applicable design. We also generate revenue from pre-fabrication services such as rendering of non-recurring engineering (“NRE”) services, mask production and post-fabrication services such as bump, test, and packaging. Pricing is typically agreed prior to production and then updated based on subsequent period negotiations.

Cost of Revenue

Cost of revenue consists primarily of material expenses, depreciation and amortization, employee-related expenses, facility costs and costs of fixed assets, including maintenance and spare parts. Material expenses primarily include the costs of raw wafers, test wafers, photomasks, resists, process gases, process chemicals, other operating supplies and external service costs for wafer manufacturing. Costs related to NRE services are also included within the cost of revenue. We expect cost of revenue to grow at a pace lower than our revenue growth. As it pertains to inflation and inflationary-headwinds we are facing within our business, while we have experienced an increase in costs for materials and energy in the current period, we continue to estimate the impact of these inflationary costs to our current year financial results to not be material.

Depreciation and amortization charges primarily include the depreciation of clean room production equipment. We depreciate equipment on a straight-line basis over a two-to-ten-year period and buildings on a straight-line basis up to 26 years (or the remaining lease term of related land on which the buildings are erected, if shorter).

Operating Expenses

Our operating expenses consist of research and development ("R&D") and selling, general and administrative expenses. Personnel costs are the most significant component of our operating expenses and consist of salaries, benefits, bonuses, share-based compensation, and commissions.






Research and Development (“R&D”)

Our R&D efforts are focused on developing highly-differentiated process technologies and solutions. As part of our strategic repositioning in 2018, we focus our efforts on technologies where we can deliver a highly-differentiated solution. Our R&D expense includes personnel costs, material costs, software license and intellectual property expenses, facility costs, supplies, professional and consulting fees, and depreciation on equipment used in R&D activities. Our development roadmap includes new platform investments, platform features and extensions, and investments in emerging technology capabilities and solutions. We expense R&D costs as incurred and we believe that continued investment in our technology portfolio is important for our future growth and acquisition of new customers.

Selling, General and Administrative (“SG&A”)

SG&A expenses consist primarily of personnel-related costs, including sales commissions to independent sales representatives and professional fees, including the costs of audit, accounting, information technology, legal, regulatory and tax compliance. Additionally, costs related to advertising, trade shows, corporate marketing and allocated overhead costs are also included in SG&A expenses. Since we became a publicly-traded company in October 2021, we have and will continue to incur increased audit, accounting, legal, information technology, regulatory, compliance, director and officer insurance costs as well as investor and public relations expenses associated with operating as a public company.

Finance Expenses, net

Finance expenses, net consist primarily of interest on borrowings, amortization of debt issuance costs under our term loans, revolving credit facility, finance leases and the other credit facilities we maintain with various financial institutions, net of interest income related to investing activities.

Share of Profit from Joint Ventures

Share of profit from joint ventures relates to our portion of profit and loss in investments that we do not consolidate.

Other Income (Expense), net

Other income (expense), net consists of one-time gains and losses and other miscellaneous income and expense items unrelated to our core operations.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense consists primarily of income taxes in jurisdictions in which we conduct business, which mainly include Germany, Singapore and the United States.
