NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION
Republic Services, Inc., a Delaware corporation, and its consolidated subsidiaries (also referred to collectively as Republic, the Company, we, us, or our), is the second largest provider of non-hazardous solid waste collection, transfer, recycling, disposal and environmental services in the United States, as measured by revenue. We manage and evaluate our operations through two field groups, Group 1 and Group 2, which we have identified as our reportable segments.
The unaudited consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Republic Services, Inc. and its wholly owned and majority owned subsidiaries in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP). We account for investments in entities in which we do not have a controlling financial interest under either the equity method or cost method of accounting, as appropriate. All material intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
We have prepared these unaudited consolidated financial statements pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Certain information related to our organization, significant accounting policies and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP has been condensed or omitted. In the opinion of management, these financial statements include all adjustments that, unless otherwise disclosed, are of a normal recurring nature and necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented. Operating results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results you can expect for a full year. You should read these financial statements in conjunction with our audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto appearing in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019.
For comparative purposes, certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation. All dollar amounts in tabular presentations are in millions, except per share amounts and unless otherwise noted.
Management’s Estimates and Assumptions
In preparing our financial statements, we make numerous estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in these financial statements and accompanying notes. We must make these estimates and assumptions because certain information we use is dependent on future events, cannot be calculated with a high degree of precision from data available or simply cannot be readily calculated based on generally accepted methodologies. In preparing our financial statements, the more critical and subjective areas that deal with the greatest amount of uncertainty relate to our accounting for our long-lived assets, including recoverability, landfill development costs, and final capping, closure and post-closure costs; our valuation allowances for accounts receivable and deferred tax assets; our liabilities for potential litigation, claims and assessments; our liabilities for environmental remediation, multiemployer pension funds, employee benefit plans, deferred taxes, uncertain tax positions, and insurance reserves; and our estimates of the fair values of assets acquired and liabilities assumed in any acquisition. Each of these items is discussed in more detail in our description of our significant accounting policies in Note 2, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019. Our actual results may differ significantly from our estimates.
In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of a new strain of coronavirus (COVID-19) a pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted the global economy, disrupted global supply chains and created significant volatility and disruption of financial markets. The extent of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our operations and financial performance will depend on future developments, including the duration and spread of the pandemic, all of which are uncertain and cannot be predicted at this time. An extended period of economic disruption could materially and adversely affect our business, results of operations, access to sources of liquidity and financial condition. We will continue to monitor the evolving COVID-19 pandemic along with the effect on our business and review our estimates for recoverability of our assets and the valuation of our obligations on, at least, a quarterly basis.
As a direct result of COVID-19, we have experienced an increase in certain costs of doing business, including costs for additional safety equipment and hygiene products, increased facility and equipment cleaning, and meals for our frontline employees. These costs are intended to assist in protecting the safety of our frontline employees as we continue to provide an essential service to our customers. We expect to incur similar costs throughout 2020, and potentially into future years. The magnitude of the costs we expect to incur throughout the remainder of the year cannot be predicted at this time due to the various uncertainties surrounding the pandemic (e.g., the duration and spread of the pandemic).

New Accounting Pronouncements
Accounting Standards Adopted
Effective January 1, 2020, we adopted the following accounting standards updates (ASUs) as issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB):
ASUEffective Date
ASU 2016-13Credit Losses (Topic 326)January 1, 2020
ASU 2018-13
Disclosure Framework—Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820)
January 1, 2020
Credit Losses
Effective January 1, 2020, we adopted ASU 2016-13, Credit Losses Topic 326 (ASU 2016-13 or the new credit losses standard) using the modified retrospective approach. The comparative periods have not been restated and continue to be reported under the accounting standard in effect for those periods. The new credit losses standard amends the impairment model to use a methodology that reflects expected credit losses and requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information to inform credit loss estimates. Our adoption of ASU 2016-13 did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2020, and we did not recognize a cumulative effect adjustment to retained earnings as of January 1, 2020.
To assist in quantifying the impact on our consolidated financial statements and supplementing our existing disclosures, we identified financial assets measured at an amortized cost basis in our consolidated balance sheet and evaluated the collectability considerations based on an expected credit loss assessment. We are exposed to credit losses primarily through the collection, transfer and disposal of non-hazardous solid waste and environmental services we provide our customers as well as the recovering and sale of certain recyclable materials. We perform ongoing credit evaluations of our customers, but generally do not require collateral to support customer receivables. We establish an allowance for doubtful accounts based on various factors including the age of receivables outstanding, historical trends, economic conditions and other information. We also review outstanding balances on an account-specific basis based on the credit risk of the customer. We determined that all of our accounts receivable share similar risk characteristics. We monitor our credit exposure on an ongoing basis and assess whether assets in the pool continue to display similar risk characteristics.
The consolidated statement of income for the three months ended March 31, 2020 reflects the measurement of credit losses for newly recognized financial assets as well as any changes to historical financial assets. The following table reflects the activity in our allowance for doubtful accounts during the three months ended March 31, 2020.
Allowance for Doubtful Accounts and Other
Balance as of December 31, 2019$34.0  
Additions charged to expense4.9  
Accounts written-off(6.5) 
Balance as of March 31, 2020$32.4  
As a result of the unprecedented nature of COVID-19 and the various uncertainties surrounding the pandemic (e.g., the duration and spread of the pandemic), we continue to apply our historical loss rate assumptions and reserve against outstanding balances on an account-specific basis as we assess the collectability of our receivables. In certain situations, we may offer credit extensions to our customers as they navigate the current economic environment. In accordance with our accounting policy, we are actively monitoring the credit risk of our specific customers, age of receivables outstanding, recent collection trends and general economic conditions to evaluate the risk of credit loss.
Fair Value Measurement
Effective January 1, 2020, we adopted the FASB's ASU 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820) Disclosure Framework—Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement (ASU 2018-13). ASU 2018-13 intends to increase the consistency and comparability of fair value measurements used in financial reporting through eliminating, modifying, and adding certain disclosure requirements within Topic 820. The adoption of ASU 2018-13 did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

Accounting Standards Updates Issued but not yet Adopted
Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Defined Benefit Plans
In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-14, Compensation—Retirement Benefits—Defined Benefit Plans—General (Subtopic 715-20) Disclosure Framework—Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Defined Benefit Plans (ASU 2018-14). ASU 2018-14 removes disclosures that no longer are considered cost beneficial, clarifies the specific requirements of disclosures, and adds disclosure requirements identified as relevant. Although narrow in scope, the amendments are considered an important part of the FASB’s efforts to improve the effectiveness of disclosures in the notes to financial statements. ASU 2018-14 is effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within that fiscal year. Early adoption is permitted for all entities. We are currently assessing the effect this guidance may have on our consolidated financial statements.
Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes
In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes
(ASU 2019-12). ASU 2019-12 attempts to simplify aspects of accounting for franchise taxes and enacted changes in tax laws or
rates, and clarifies the accounting for transactions that result in a step-up in the tax basis of goodwill. The amended guidance contains a model under which an entity can consider a list of factors in determining whether the step-up in tax basis of goodwill is related to the business combination that caused the initial recognition of goodwill or to a separate transaction. ASU 2019-12 is effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within that fiscal year. Early adoption is permitted for all entities. We are currently assessing the effect this guidance may have on our consolidated financial statements.
Reference Rate Reform
In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference
Rate Reform on Financial Reporting (ASU 2020-04). ASU 2020-04 provides optional guidance for a limited period of time to ease the potential burden in accounting for (or recognizing the effects of) reference rate reform on financial reporting. The amendments in ASU 2020-04 provide optional expedients and exceptions for applying generally accepted accounting principles to contracts, hedging relationships, and other transactions affected by reference rate reform if certain criteria are met. ASU 2020-04 is effective for all entities as of March 12, 2020 through December 31, 2022. We are currently assessing the effect this guidance may have on our consolidated financial statements.

Substantially all of the goodwill and intangible assets recorded for these acquisitions are deductible for tax purposes.
These acquisitions are not material to our results of operations, individually or in the aggregate. As a result, no pro forma financial information is provided.
Investments
In 2020, we continued to acquire non-controlling equity interests in certain limited liability companies that qualified for investment tax credits under Section 48 of the Internal Revenue Code. In exchange for our non-controlling interests, we made capital contributions of $9.4 million, which were recorded to other assets in our March 31, 2020 consolidated balance sheet. During the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, we also reduced the carrying value of these investments by $13.2 million and $11.6 million, respectively, as a result of tax credits allocated to us, cash distributions and our share of income and loss pursuant to the terms of the limited liability company agreements.
Restructuring Charges
