(Cautionary Statement Under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995)
Mattel is including this Cautionary Statement to caution investors and qualify for the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (the "Act") for forward-looking statements. This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Act. Forward-looking statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. The use of words such as "anticipates," "expects," "intends," "plans," "confident that," and "believes," among others, generally identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on currently available operating, financial, economic, and other information and assumptions, and are subject to a number of significant risks and uncertainties. A variety of factors, many of which are beyond our control, could cause actual future results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements, and are currently, and in the future may be, amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic. Specific factors that might cause such a difference include, but are not limited to: (i) potential impacts of and uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 pandemic (and actions taken in response to it by governments, businesses, and individuals) on our business operations, financial results and financial position and on the global economy, including its impact on our sales; (ii) Mattel’s ability to design, develop, produce, manufacture, source, ship, and distribute products on a timely and cost-effective basis; (iii) sufficient interest in and demand for the products and entertainment we offer by retail customers and consumers to profitably recover Mattel’s costs; (iv) downturns in economic conditions affecting Mattel’s markets which can negatively impact retail customers and consumers, and which can result in lower employment levels and lower consumer disposable income and spending, including lower spending on purchases of Mattel’s products; (v) other factors which can lower discretionary consumer spending, such as higher costs for fuel and food, drops in the value of homes or other consumer assets, and high levels of consumer debt; (vi) potential difficulties or delays Mattel may experience in implementing cost savings and efficiency enhancing initiatives; (vii) other economic and public health conditions or regulatory changes in the markets in which Mattel and its customers and suppliers operate, which could create delays or increase Mattel’s costs, such as higher commodity prices, labor costs or transportation costs, or outbreaks of disease; (viii) currency fluctuations, including movements in foreign exchange rates, which can lower Mattel’s net revenues and earnings, and significantly impact Mattel’s costs; (ix) the concentration of Mattel’s customers, potentially increasing the negative impact to Mattel of difficulties experienced by any of Mattel’s customers, such as bankruptcies or liquidations or a general lack of success, or changes in their purchasing or selling patterns; (x) the inventory policies of Mattel’s retail customers, as well as the concentration of Mattel’s revenues in the second half of the year, which coupled with reliance by retailers on quick response inventory management techniques increases the risk of underproduction, overproduction, and shipping delays; (xi) legal, reputational, and financial risks related to security breaches or cyberattacks; (xii) work disruptions, which may impact Mattel’s ability to manufacture or deliver product in a timely and cost-effective manner; (xiii) the impact of competition on revenues, margins, and other aspects of Mattel’s business, including the ability to offer products which consumers choose to buy instead of competitive products, the ability to secure, maintain, and renew popular licenses from licensors of entertainment properties, and the ability to attract and retain talented employees; (xiv) the risk of product recalls or product liability suits and costs associated with product safety regulations; (xv) changes in laws or regulations in the United States and/or in other major markets, such as China, in which Mattel operates, including, without limitation, with respect to taxes, tariffs, trade policies, or product safety, which may increase Mattel’s product costs and other costs of doing business, and reduce Mattel’s earnings; (xvi) failure to realize the planned benefits from any investments or acquisitions made by Mattel; (xvii) the impact of other market conditions or third party actions or approvals, including that result in any significant failure, inadequacy, or interruption from vendors or outsourcers, which could reduce demand for Mattel’s products, delay or increase the cost of implementation of Mattel’s programs, or alter Mattel’s actions and reduce actual results; (xviii) changes in financing markets or the inability of Mattel to obtain financing on attractive terms; (xix) the impact of litigation, arbitration, or regulatory decisions or settlement actions; (xx) uncertainty from the expected discontinuance of LIBOR and transition to any other interest rate benchmark; and (xxi) other risks and uncertainties detailed in Part I, Item 1A "Risk Factors" in Mattel's 2020 Annual Report on Form 10-K (the "2020 Annual Report on Form 10-K"). Mattel does not update forward-looking statements and expressly disclaims any obligation to do so, except as required by law.

MATTEL, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
1.     Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements and related disclosures have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") applicable to interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of only those of a normal recurring nature, considered necessary for a fair statement of the financial position and interim results of Mattel, Inc. and its subsidiaries ("Mattel") as of and for the periods presented have been included.
The December 31, 2020 balance sheet data was derived from audited financial statements; however, the accompanying interim notes to the consolidated financial statements do not include all of the annual disclosures required by GAAP. As Mattel's business is seasonal, results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of those that may be expected for a full year. The financial information included herein should be read in conjunction with Mattel's consolidated financial statements and related notes in the 2020 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.
2.     Accounts Receivable
Mattel estimates current expected credit losses based on collection history and management’s assessment of the current economic trends, business environment, customers’ financial condition, accounts receivable aging, and customer disputes that may impact the level of future credit losses. Accounts receivable are net of allowances for credit losses of $13.1 million, $20.9 million, and $15.9 million as of March 31, 2021, March 31, 2020, and December 31, 2020, respectively.

During the three months ended March 31, 2021, Mattel completed the sale of a manufacturing plant based in Mexico, which included land and buildings, resulting in a pre-tax gain of $15.8 million. The assets sold were previously designated as held for sale, and included within property, plant, and equipment, net in the consolidated balance sheets as of December 31, 2020 and March 31, 2020.
5.     Goodwill
Goodwill is allocated to various reporting units, which are at the operating segment level, for the purpose of evaluating whether goodwill is impaired. Mattel's reporting units are: (i) North America, (ii) International, and (iii) American Girl. Components of the operating segments have been aggregated into a single reporting unit as the components have similar economic characteristics. The similar economic characteristics include the nature of the products, the nature of the production processes, the customers, and the manner in which the products are distributed. Mattel tests its goodwill for impairment annually in the third quarter and whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of a reporting unit may exceed its fair value.
The change in the carrying amount of goodwill by operating segment for the three months ended March 31, 2021 is shown below. Brand-specific goodwill held by foreign subsidiaries is allocated to the North America segment, thereby causing a foreign currency translation impact. During the three months ended March 31, 2021, Mattel sold its arts, crafts, and stationery business resulting in a reduction of goodwill of approximately $2 million.

8.     Seasonal Financing
On December 20, 2017, Mattel entered into a syndicated facility agreement, which was subsequently amended in 2018, 2019, and 2021 (as amended, the "Credit Agreement"), as a borrower (in such capacity, the "Borrower") and guarantor thereunder, along with certain of the Borrower's domestic and foreign subsidiaries as additional borrowers and/or guarantors thereunder.
On March 19, 2021, Mattel entered into the fourth amendment to the Credit Agreement, which amended certain terms, including, but not limited to, certain components of the borrowing base, a reduction of the aggregate principal commitments of the senior secured revolving credit facilities (the "senior secured revolving credit facilities") from $1.60 billion to $1.40 billion, and an extension of the maturity date from November 18, 2022 to March 19, 2024.
The senior secured revolving credit facilities consist of (i) an asset based lending facility with aggregate commitments up to $1.11 billion, subject to borrowing base capacity, secured by substantially all of the accounts receivable and inventory of the Borrower and certain of its subsidiaries who are borrowers and/or guarantors under the Credit Agreement, as well as (ii) a revolving credit facility with $294.0 million in aggregate commitments secured by certain fixed assets and intellectual property of the U.S. borrowers under the Credit Agreement, and certain equity interests in the borrower and guarantor subsidiaries under the Credit Agreement.
Borrowings under the senior secured revolving credit facilities (i) are limited by jurisdiction-specific borrowing base calculations based on the sum of specified percentages of eligible accounts receivable, eligible inventory and certain fixed assets and intellectual property, as applicable, minus the amount of any applicable reserves, and (ii) bear interest at a floating rate, which can be either, at the Borrower's option, (a) an adjusted LIBOR rate plus an applicable margin ranging from 1.25% to 1.75% per annum or (b) an alternate base rate plus an applicable margin ranging from 0.25% to 0.75% per annum, in each case, such applicable margins to be determined based on the Borrower's average borrowing availability remaining under the senior secured revolving credit facilities.
In addition to paying interest on the outstanding principal under the senior secured revolving credit facilities, the Borrower is required to pay (i) an unused line fee per annum of the average daily unused portion of the senior secured revolving credit facilities, (ii) a letter of credit fronting fee based on a percentage of the aggregate face amount of outstanding letters of credit, and (iii) certain other customary fees and expenses of the lenders and agents.
Mattel had no borrowings under the senior secured revolving credit facilities as of March 31, 2021, $150.0 million of borrowings as of March 31, 2020, and no borrowings under the senior secured revolving credit facilities as of December 31, 2020. Outstanding letters of credit under the senior secured revolving credit facilities totaled approximately $11 million, $13 million, and $11 million as of March 31, 2021, March 31, 2020, and December 31, 2020, respectively.
As of March 31, 2021, Mattel was in compliance with all covenants contained in the Credit Agreement. The Credit Agreement is a material agreement, and failure to comply with the covenants may result in an event of default under the terms of the senior secured revolving credit facilities. If Mattel were to default under the terms of the senior secured revolving credit facilities, its ability to meet its seasonal financing requirements could be adversely affected.

On March 19, 2021, Mattel issued (i) $600 million aggregate principal amount of 3.375% Senior Notes due 2026 (the "2026 Notes") and (ii) $600 million aggregate principal amount of 3.750% Senior Notes due 2029 (the "2029 Notes" and, together with the 2026 Notes, the "Notes"). The 2026 Notes will mature on April 1, 2026 and the 2029 Notes will mature on April 1, 2029, unless earlier redeemed in accordance with their respective terms. The Notes are guaranteed by Mattel’s existing and, subject to certain exceptions, future wholly owned domestic restricted subsidiaries that guarantee Mattel’s senior secured revolving credit facilities or certain other indebtedness.
The net proceeds from the offering, together with cash on hand, were used to redeem $1,225 million in aggregate principal amount of Mattel’s outstanding 6.750% Senior Notes due December 2025 (the "2025 Notes") and pay related prepayment premiums and transaction fees and expenses. As a result of the partial redemption of the 2025 Notes, Mattel incurred a loss on extinguishment of $83.2 million, comprised of $62.0 million of prepayment premium costs and a $21.2 million write-off of the unamortized debt issuance costs, which was recorded within interest expense in the consolidated statements of operations. Following completion of the partial redemption of the 2025 Notes, $275 million aggregate principal amount of the 2025 Notes remains outstanding.

Currency Translation Adjustments
Mattel's reporting currency is the U.S. dollar. The translation of its net investments in subsidiaries with non-U.S. dollar functional currencies subjects Mattel to the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations in its results of operations and financial position. Assets and liabilities of subsidiaries with non-U.S. dollar functional currencies are translated into U.S. dollars at fiscal period-end exchange rates. Income and expense items are translated at weighted-average exchange rates prevailing during the fiscal period. The resulting currency translation adjustments are recorded as a component of accumulated other comprehensive loss within stockholders' equity. Currency translation adjustments resulted in a net loss of $28.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, primarily due to the weakening of the Brazilian real, Mexican peso, Euro, and Turkish lira against the U.S. dollar. Currency translation adjustments resulted in a net loss of $145.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, primarily due to the weakening of the Mexican peso, Russian ruble, Brazilian real, and British pound sterling against the U.S. dollar.

12.     Foreign Currency Transaction Exposure
Currency exchange rate fluctuations may impact Mattel's results of operations and cash flows. Mattel's currency transaction exposures include gains and losses realized on unhedged inventory purchases and unhedged receivables and payables balances that are denominated in a currency other than the applicable functional currency. Gains and losses on unhedged inventory purchases and other transactions associated with operating activities are recorded in the components of operating income (loss) in the consolidated statements of operations. Gains and losses on unhedged intercompany loans and advances are recorded as a component of other non-operating (income) expense, net in the consolidated statements of operations in the period in which the currency exchange rate changes. Inventory transactions denominated in the Euro, Mexican peso, Australian dollar, British pound sterling, Canadian dollar, Russian ruble, and Brazilian real were the primary transactions that caused foreign currency transaction exposure for Mattel during the three months ended March 31, 2021.
Currency transaction gains (losses) included in the consolidated statements of operations are as follows:

13.     Derivative Instruments
Mattel seeks to mitigate its exposure to foreign currency transaction risk by monitoring its foreign currency transaction exposure for the year and partially hedging such exposure using foreign currency forward exchange contracts. Mattel uses foreign currency forward exchange contracts as cash flow hedges primarily to hedge its purchases and sales of inventory denominated in foreign currencies. These contracts generally have maturity dates of up to 18 months. These derivative instruments have been designated as effective cash flow hedges, whereby the unsettled hedges are reported in Mattel's consolidated balance sheets at fair value, with changes in the fair value of the hedges reflected in other comprehensive income (loss) ("OCI"). Realized gains and losses for these contracts are recorded in the consolidated statements of operations in the period in which the inventory is sold to customers. Mattel uses foreign currency forward exchange contracts to hedge intercompany loans and advances denominated in foreign currencies. Due to the short-term nature of the contracts involved, Mattel does not use hedge accounting for these contracts, and as such, changes in fair value are recorded in the period of change in the consolidated statements of operations. Mattel utilizes derivative contracts to hedge certain purchases of commodities, which were not material. As of March 31, 2021, March 31, 2020, and December 31, 2020, Mattel held foreign currency forward exchange contracts and other commodity derivative instruments, with notional amounts of $951.5 million, $1.37 billion, and $855.0 million, respectively.

14.     Fair Value Measurements
The following tables present information about Mattel's assets and liabilities measured and reported in the financial statements at fair value on a recurring basis as of March 31, 2021, March 31, 2020, and December 31, 2020 and indicate the fair value hierarchy of the valuation techniques utilized to determine such fair value. The three levels of the fair value hierarchy are as follows:
Level 1 – Valuations based on unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the entity has the ability to access.
Level 2 – Valuations based on quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities, either directly or indirectly.
Level 3 – Valuations based on inputs that are unobservable, supported by little or no market activity, and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.
