1. ORGANIZATION AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION
Organization — Bright Horizons Family Solutions Inc. (“Bright Horizons” or the “Company”) provides center-based early education and child care, back-up child and adult/elder care, tuition assistance and student loan repayment program administration, educational advisory services, and other support services for employers and families in the United States, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Puerto Rico and India. The Company provides services designed to help families, employers and their employees better integrate work and family life, primarily under multi-year contracts with employers who offer child care, dependent care, and workforce education services, as part of their employee benefits packages in an effort to support employees across life and career stages and improve employee engagement. On July 1, 2022, the Company, through wholly-owned subsidiaries, completed the acquisition of the outstanding shares of Only About Children, a child care operator in Australia. See Note 12, Subsequent Event, for additional information.
Basis of Presentation — The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2022 and the condensed consolidated statements of income, comprehensive income (loss), changes in stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for the interim periods ended June 30, 2022 and 2021 have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP” or “GAAP”) for interim financial information and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required in accordance with U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021. The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. Intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
In the opinion of the Company’s management, the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2022 and the condensed consolidated statements of income, comprehensive income (loss), changes in stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for the interim periods ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, reflect all adjustments (consisting only of normal and recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly the results of the interim periods presented. The operating results for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results expected for the full year.
Stockholders Equity — The board of directors of the Company authorized a share repurchase program of up to $400 million of the Company’s outstanding common stock effective December 16, 2021. The share repurchase program has no expiration date and replaced the prior June 2018 authorization. The shares may be repurchased from time to time in open market transactions at prevailing market prices, in privately negotiated transactions, under Rule 10b5-1 plans, or by other means in accordance with federal securities laws. During the six months ended June 30, 2022, the Company repurchased 0.9 million shares for $84.2 million. At June 30, 2022, $296.4 million remained available under the repurchase program. During the six months ended June 30, 2021, 0.5 million shares were repurchased for $70.3 million. All repurchased shares have been retired.
Government Support — During the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, the Company participated in government support programs that were enacted in response to the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, including availing itself of certain tax deferrals, tax credits and federal block grant funding in the United States, as well as employee wage support in the United Kingdom.
During the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, $46.7 million and $17.0 million, respectively, was recorded as a reduction to cost of services in relation to these benefits, of which $16.0 million and $5.7 million, respectively, reduced the operating subsidy revenue due from employers for the related child care centers. Additionally during the six months ended June 30, 2022, amounts received for tuition support of $3.4 million were recorded to revenue. As of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, $1.6 million and $3.3 million, respectively, was recorded in prepaid expenses and other current assets on the consolidated balance sheet for amounts due from government support programs. As of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, $7.0 million and $3.9 million was recorded to other current liabilities related to government support received related to future periods, and as of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, payroll tax deferrals of $7.0 million were recorded in accounts payable and accrued expenses on the consolidated balance sheet.

4. ACQUISITIONS
The Company’s growth strategy includes expansion through strategic and synergistic acquisitions. The goodwill resulting from these acquisitions arises largely from synergies expected from combining the operations of the businesses acquired with the Company’s existing operations, including cost efficiencies and leveraging existing client relationships, as well as from benefits derived from gaining the related assembled workforce.
2022 Acquisitions
During the six months ended June 30, 2022, the Company acquired one center in the Netherlands, which was accounted for as a business combination. This business was acquired for aggregate cash consideration of $3.3 million and consideration payable of $0.2 million. The Company recorded goodwill of $3.1 million related to the full service center-based child care segment in relation to this acquisition, which will not be deductible for tax purposes. In addition, the Company recorded intangible assets of $0.5 million that will be amortized over four years.

The determination and allocation of purchase price consideration is based on preliminary estimates of fair value; such estimates and assumptions are subject to change within the measurement period (up to one year from the acquisition date). As of June 30, 2022, the purchase price allocation for this acquisition remains open as the Company gathers additional information regarding the assets acquired and the liabilities assumed. The operating results for the acquired businesses are included in the consolidated results of operations from the date of acquisition, and were not material to the Company’s financial results.
During the six months ended June 30, 2022, the Company paid contingent consideration of $19.1 million related to an acquisition completed in 2019 and contingent consideration of $0.2 million related to an acquisition completed in 2021. Of the total amounts paid of $19.3 million, $13.9 million had been recorded as a liability at the date of acquisition and presented as cash used in financing activities in the consolidated statement of cash flows with remaining amounts reflected as cash used in operating activities.
On July 1, 2022, the Company, through wholly-owned subsidiaries, completed the acquisition of the outstanding shares of Only About Children, a child care operator in Australia, for aggregate consideration of AUD$450 million. See Note 12, Subsequent Event, for additional information.

During the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company acquired two centers as well as a school-age camp provider in the United States, 13 centers in the United Kingdom, and three centers in the Netherlands, in five separate business acquisitions, which were each accounted for as a business combination. These businesses were acquired for aggregate cash consideration of $53.2 million, net of cash acquired of $2.2 million, and consideration payable of $0.6 million. Additionally, the Company is subject to contingent consideration payments for two of these acquisitions, and recorded a fair value estimate of $7.3 million in relation to these contingent consideration arrangements at acquisition. Contingent consideration of up to $1.2 million was payable within one year from the date of acquisition if certain performance targets were met for one of the acquisitions, of which $0.8 million was paid in 2021 based on the performance targets met. Contingent consideration is payable in 2026 based on certain financial metrics for the other acquisition. The Company recorded goodwill of $39.5 million related to the full service center-based child care segment, of which $3.4 million will be deductible for tax purposes, and $14.6 million related to the back-up care segment, all of which will be deductible for tax purposes. In addition, the Company recorded intangible assets of $5.7 million that will be amortized over five years, as well as fixed assets of $10.1 million in relation to these acquisitions.
The allocation of purchase price consideration is based on preliminary estimates of fair value; such estimates and assumptions are subject to change within the measurement period (up to one year from the acquisition date). As of June 30, 2022, the purchase price allocations for three of the acquisitions remain open as the Company gathers additional information regarding the assets acquired and the liabilities assumed.

Term Loan B Facility
The seven-year term loan B matures on November 23, 2028 and requires quarterly principal payments equal to 1% per annum of the original aggregate principal amount of the term loan B, with the remaining principal balance due at maturity. Borrowings under the term loan B facility bear interest at a rate per annum of 1.25% over the base rate, or 2.25% over the eurocurrency rate. The eurocurrency rate is the one, three or six month LIBOR rate or, with applicable lender approval, the nine or twelve month or less than one month LIBOR rate, subject to an interest rate floor of 0.50%. The base rate is subject to an interest rate floor of 1.50%.

The remaining principal balance is due at maturity. Borrowings under the term loan A facility bear interest at a rate per annum ranging from 0.50% to 0.75% over the base rate, subject to an interest rate floor of 1.00%, or 1.50% to 1.75% over the eurocurrency rate.

Borrowings under the revolving credit facility bear interest at a rate per annum ranging from 0.50% to 0.75% over the base rate, subject to an interest rate floor of 1.00%, or 1.50% to 1.75% over the eurocurrency rate.
Debt Covenants
All obligations under the senior secured credit facilities are secured by substantially all the assets of the Company’s material U.S. subsidiaries. The senior secured credit facilities contain a number of covenants that, among other things and subject to certain exceptions, may restrict the ability of Bright Horizons Family Solutions LLC, the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, and its restricted subsidiaries, to: incur liens; make investments, loans, advances and acquisitions; incur additional indebtedness or guarantees; pay dividends on capital stock or redeem, repurchase or retire capital stock or subordinated indebtedness; engage in transactions with affiliates; sell assets, including capital stock of the Company’s subsidiaries; alter the business conducted; enter into agreements restricting the Company’s subsidiaries’ ability to pay dividends; and consolidate or merge.

In addition, the credit agreement governing the senior secured credit facilities requires Bright Horizons Capital Corp., the Company’s direct subsidiary, to be a passive holding company, subject to certain exceptions. The term loan A and the revolving credit facility require Bright Horizons Family Solutions LLC, the borrower, and its restricted subsidiaries, to comply with a maximum first lien net leverage ratio not to exceed 4.25 to 1.00. A breach of the applicable covenant is subject to certain equity cure rights.

Derivative Financial Instruments
The Company is subject to interest rate risk as all borrowings under the senior secured credit facilities are subject to variable interest rates. The Company’s risk management policy permits using derivative instruments to manage interest rate and other risks. The Company uses interest rate swaps and caps to manage a portion of the risk related to changes in cash flows from interest rate movements. In June 2020, the Company entered into interest rate cap agreements with a total notional value of $800 million, designated and accounted for as cash flow hedges from inception, to provide the Company with interest rate protection in the event the one-month LIBOR rate increases above 1%. Interest rate cap agreements for $300 million notional value have an effective date of June 30, 2020 and expire on October 31, 2023, while interest rate cap agreements for another $500 million notional amount have an effective date of October 29, 2021 and expire on October 31, 2023.
In December 2021, the Company entered into additional interest rate cap agreements with a total notional value of $900 million designated and accounted for as cash flow hedges from inception. Interest rate cap agreements for $600 million, which have a forward starting effective date of October 31, 2023 and expire on October 31, 2025, provide the Company with interest rate protection in the event the one-month LIBOR rate increases above 2.5%. Interest rate cap agreements for $300 million, which have a forward starting effective date of October 31, 2023 and expire on October 31, 2026, provide the Company with interest rate protection in the event the one-month LIBOR rate increases above 3.0%.
During the six months ended June 30, 2022, the Company entered into foreign currency forward contracts in connection with an acquisition in Australia completed in July 2022. The Company entered into the foreign currency forwards to lock the purchase price in US dollars at closing and mitigate the impact of foreign currency fluctuations between signing of the definitive purchase agreement on May 3, 2022 and closing. The forward contracts have a total notional value of approximately AUD$320 million, which included the expected payments for the purchase price and for letters of credit used to guarantee certain lease arrangements. The cash flows associated with the business combination do not meet the criteria to be designated and accounted for as a cash flow hedge and, as such, foreign currency gains and losses on these forwards are recorded on the consolidated statement of income. During the six months ended June 30, 2022, the Company recognized realized losses of $4.6 million and unrealized losses of $1.3 million in relation to these forwards due to fluctuations in the Australian dollar.
