Note 2. Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Statement of Compliance — The accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared by management of the Company in accordance with the rules and regulations of the International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (“IASB”). The interim condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all the information and disclosures required in the annual consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB and should be read in conjunction with the Company’s annual consolidated financial statements, included in GLOBALFOUNDRIES' Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2022.

The interim condensed consolidated financial statements were authorized by the Audit, Risk and Compliance Committee of GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ Board of Directors on May 16, 2023, to be issued and subsequent events have been evaluated for their potential effect on the interim condensed consolidated financial statements through May 18, 2022.

Significant Accounting Judgments, Estimates and Assumptions — The preparation of financial statements in accordance with International Accounting Standards (“IAS”) 34, Interim Financial Reporting, requires the use of certain critical accounting estimates. It also requires management to exercise judgment in applying the Company’s accounting policies. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting solely of normal recurring adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the financial information for the periods indicated, have been included. The results for the three months ended March 31, 2023 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2023.

Significant Accounting Policies — Except as set forth below, the accounting policies (including accounting judgements, estimates and assumptions) adopted in the preparation of the interim condensed consolidated financial statements are consistent with those followed in the preparation of the Company's annual audited consolidated financial statements contained in our Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2022.
Property, Plant and Equipment — We periodically assess the estimated useful lives of property, plant and equipment. As a result of a review completed in April 2023, the Company concluded the estimated maximum useful life of buildings should be increased from 26 years to 50 years. This change in estimate was applied prospectively, effective beginning in the first quarter of 2023. The Company determined that the change in estimated maximum useful lives of buildings did not have a material impact on the financial statements as of and for the three months ended March 31, 2023.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements, Adopted:

Amendments to IFRS 9, IAS 39, IFRS 7 and IFRS 16 Interest Rate Benchmark Reform (“IBOR reform”) 

Refer to the audited consolidated financial statements included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2022.

Note 3. Net Revenue

The following table presents the Company’s revenue disaggregated based on revenue source and timing of revenue recognition for the three month periods ended March 31, 2023 and 2022. The Company believes these categories best depict the nature and timing of revenue:

(in millions) Three Months Ended March 31,

Timing of revenue recognition:
Revenue recognized over time$107 $127 
Revenue recognized at a point in time1,734 1,813 
$1,841 $1,940 


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 effective income tax rate reflected in the income tax benefit or income tax expense is primarily due to the effect of the tax rates and permanent differences in the other jurisdictions in which the Company operates.

The effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022 was 8.3% and 14.0%, respectively. The decrease for the three months ended March 31, 2023 compared to the prior year was primarily due to an improved mix of income in certain jurisdictions and a benefit related to Singapore tax incentives, partially offset by additional withholding tax expense accrued in the United States.


Note 5. Earnings Per Share

Basic earnings per share ("EPS") is based upon the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share is based upon the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period assuming the issuance of common shares for all potentially dilutive common shares outstanding.

The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted earnings per share:

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 13. 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

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 amounts and fair values of the Company’s financial instruments not recorded at fair value on a recurring basis are presented in the following table:

Other long-term debt2,515 2,312 2,5112,414
Total$2,515 $2,312 $2,511$2,414

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 14. 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. The fair value of each award is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option pricing model for options, and the Monte Carlo simulation model for the performance share units and a share price at the grant date for the restricted share units. The Black-Scholes model and Monte Carlo model both require management to make certain assumptions of future expectations based on historical and current data. The assumptions include the expected term of the awards, expected volatility, dividend yield, and risk-free interest rate. The expected term represents the amount of time that awards granted are expected to be outstanding, based on forecasted exercise behavior. The option pricing model requires the input of highly subjective assumptions, including the estimated fair value of the Company’s stock, expected term of the awards, expected volatility of the price of the Company’s shares, risk free interest rate and the expected dividend yield of ordinary shares. The assumptions used to determine the fair value of the option awards represent management’s best estimates. These estimates involve inherent uncertainties and the application of management’s judgment. The Company estimates the expected forfeiture for options utilizing historical data, and only recognizes expense when a defined liquidity event (change in control or IPO) is deemed probable on the number of awards that are expected to vest. After applying a forfeiture estimate during each reporting period for when they are probable of vesting, the Company recognizes expense on a graded attribution basis for each tranche of the award over the period from the grant date to the later of the one-year anniversary of estimated time following a liquidity event or the legal vesting dates.

The Company offers an Employee Stock Purchase Plan which provides eligible employees with an opportunity to purchase our ordinary shares through payroll deductions of up to 10% of their eligible compensation. A participant may purchase a maximum of 2,500 ordinary shares during the purchase period. Amounts deducted and accumulated by the participant are used to purchase ordinary shares at the end of each six-month period, with the Company matching 20% of each employee's contributions on an after-tax basis.

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 geopolitical conditions such as the ongoing trade and political tensions with China and 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.

GLOBALFOUNDRIES INC.
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 (“LTAs”), providing a high degree of revenue visibility and significant operating leverage, resulting in improved financial performance and bottom line growth. 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 40 customers with LTAs as of March 31, 2023, many of whom are the global leaders in their field.

The principal source of our revenue is wafer fabrication and sales of finished semiconductor wafers, which accounted for approximately 91% of our net revenue during the quarter ended March 31, 2023. The rest of our net revenue was mainly derived from photomask manufacturing, sourcing services and pre-fab manufacturing services.

The semiconductor industry is susceptible to uncertain economic conditions that could impact demand. We remain cautious regarding the macroeconomic headwinds facing our industry in the first half of 2023. We continue to implement a long-term partnership-driven model with our industry, which is driving improved visibility for our business through this period of uncertainty.

Components of Results of Operations

Net Revenue
We generate the majority of our revenue from volume production and sales of finished 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 pre-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. As it pertains to inflation and inflationary-headwinds we are facing within our business, we have experienced an increase in costs for materials and energy in the current period, and we expect these increases to continue to have an adverse impact on our financial results of operations, while these economic conditions persist.
Depreciation and amortization charges primarily include the depreciation of clean room production equipment We periodically assess the estimated useful lives of property, plant and equipment. As a result of a review completed in April 2023, the Company concluded the estimated maximum useful life of buildings should be increased from 26 years to 50 years. This change in estimate was applied prospectively, effective beginning in the first quarter of 2023. We depreciate equipment on a straight-line basis over a two-to-ten-year period. We depreciate equipment on a straight-line basis over a two-to-ten-year period. Employee-related expenses primarily include employee wages and salaries, social security contributions and benefit costs for operators, maintenance technicians, process engineers, supply chain, IT production, yield improvement and health and safety roles. Facility costs primarily consist of the costs

of electricity, water and other utilities and services. We expect cost of revenue to increase modestly in absolute terms and as a percentage of revenue in the second quarter 2023.

Operating Expenses
Our operating expenses consist of research and development (“R&D”), selling, general and administrative expenses, and restructuring charges. 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. 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. We believe that continued investment in our technology portfolio is important for our future growth and acquisition of new customers. We expect our R&D expense to increase modestly in absolute terms and as a percentage of revenue in the second quarter 2023..

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 accounting, audit, 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. We expect SG&A expenses to decrease modestly in absolute terms and as a percentage of revenue in the second quarter 2023.

Restructuring Charges
Restructuring charges relate to reductions in our global workforce , leased workspace and we engage consultants for strategic support of the restructuring.

Other Operating Charges

Finance Income (Expense), net
Finance income (expense), net consists 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.

Other Income (Expense), net
Other income (expense), net consists of gains and losses and other miscellaneous income and expense items unrelated to our core operations. Included are tool sales to third party, as well as gains and losses relating to hedging activities.

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

Net revenue$1,841 $1,940 $(99)(5.1)%

Net revenue decreased by $99 million, or 5.1%, for the three months ended March 31, 2023, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2022. The decrease was primarily a result of lower wafer shipment volumes despite higher average selling prices (“ASP”). For the three months ended March 31, 2023, wafer shipments were 511 thousand (300mm equivalent), an 18% decrease from the prior year. ASP per wafer increased approximately 12% year over year, driven by ramping LTAs with better pricing, and continued improvement in product mix.
