Non-U.S. dollarThe impact of non-U.S. dollar exchange rate fluctuations on the Company's financial results is typically calculated as the difference between current period activity translated using the current period's exchange rates and the comparable prior-year period's exchange rates; this method is used to calculate the impact of changes in non-U.S. dollar exchange rates on revenues, commissions and other operating expenses for all countries where the functional currency is not the U.S. dollar.

MONEYGRAM INTERNATIONAL, INC.
NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Note 1 — Description of the Business and Basis of Presentation
References to "MoneyGram," the "Company," "we," "us" and "our" are to MoneyGram International, Inc. and its subsidiaries.
Nature of Operations — MoneyGram offers products and services under its two reporting segments: GFT and FPP. The GFT segment provides global money transfer services and bill payment services to consumers through two primary distribution channels: retail and digital. Through our Retail Channel, we offer services through third-party agents, including retail chains, independent retailers, post offices and other financial institutions. Additionally, we have limited Company-operated retail locations. We offer services through MGO, digital partnerships, direct transfers to bank accounts, mobile wallets and card solutions such as Visa Direct, as part of our Digital Channel. The Financial Paper Products segment provides official check outsourcing services and money orders through financial institutions and agent locations.
Basis of Presentation — The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of MoneyGram are prepared in conformity with U.S. GAAP for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets are unclassified due to the timing uncertainty surrounding the payment of settlement obligations. The condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments of a normal recurring nature that, in the opinion of management, are necessary in order to make the financial statements not misleading.
Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic On Our Financial Statements — The global spread of COVID-19 and the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is complex and ever-evolving. In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic and recommended extensive containment and mitigation measures worldwide. The outbreak reached all regions in which we do business, and governmental authorities around the world implemented numerous measures attempting to contain and mitigate the effects of the virus, including travel bans and restrictions, border closings, quarantines, shelter-in-place orders, shutdowns, limitations or closures of non-essential businesses, school closures and social distancing requirements. The global spread of COVID-19 and resulting government actions taken in response to the virus have caused, and may continue to cause, significant economic and business disruption, volatility, financial uncertainty and a continued significant global economic downturn. This has had, and may continue to have, a negative impact on our workforce, agents, customers, financial markets, consumer spending and credit markets. Even after the COVID-19 pandemic has subsided, we may continue to experience adverse impacts to our business as a result of an economic recession or depression. Therefore, the Company cannot reasonably estimate the future impact at this time.
There were no other material impacts to our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements as of and for the periods ended September 30, 2021, based on the Company's assessment of its estimates. As additional information becomes available to us, our future assessment of these estimates, including our expectations at the time regarding the duration, scope and severity of the pandemic, as well as other factors, could materially and adversely impact our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in future reporting periods.
Use of Estimates — The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. These estimates and assumptions are based on historical experience, future expectations, impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and other factors and assumptions the Company believes to be reasonable under the circumstances. These estimates and assumptions are reviewed on an ongoing basis and are revised when necessary. Changes in estimates are recorded in the period of change. Actual amounts may differ from these estimates.
Principles of Consolidation — The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of MoneyGram International, Inc. and its subsidiaries. Intercompany profits, transactions and account balances have been eliminated in consolidation.
Presentation — During the first quarter of 2021, the Company changed its presentation to disclose "Gross profit" in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. The presentation of gross profit is intended to supplement investors with an understanding of our operating performance. Gross profit is calculated as total revenue less commissions and direct transaction expenses. These expenses were previously included within "Operating expenses" and are now presented within "Cost of revenue" in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. The change in presentation was applied retrospectively to all periods presented in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and it had no effect on Operating income, Net loss or Loss per share. The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets, Condensed Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Loss, Condensed Consolidated Statements of Stockholders' Deficit and Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows are not affected by this change in presentation.

Recently Issued Accounting Standards and Related Developments Not Yet Adopted — In May 2021, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2021-04, Earnings Per Share (Topic 260), Debt—Modifications and Extinguishments (Subtopic 470-50), Compensation—Stock Compensation (Topic 718), and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Issuer’s Accounting for Certain Modifications or Exchanges of Freestanding Equity-Classified Written Call Options (a consensus of the FASB Emerging Issues Task Force). The ASU clarifies and reduces diversity in an issuer’s accounting for modifications or exchanges of freestanding equity-classified written call options, warrants for instance, that remain equity classified after modification or exchange. The ASU provides guidance that will clarify whether an issuer should account for a modification or an exchange of a freestanding equity-classified written call option that remains equity classified after modification or exchange as (1) an adjustment to equity and, if so, the related earnings per share effects, if any, or (2) an expense and, if so, the manner and pattern of recognition. The new guidance is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2021, and early adoption is permitted, including adoption in an interim period. The adoption of ASU 2021-04 is not expected to have a material impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements.
In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06, Debt - Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging - Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity's Own Equity. This ASU changes how entities account for convertible instruments and contracts in an entity's own equity and simplifies the accounting for convertible instruments by removing certain separation models for convertible instruments. This ASU also modifies the guidance on diluted earnings per share calculations. The amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, including interim periods within those fiscal years. We are currently evaluating the impact of this standard on our condensed consolidated financial statements.
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. The amendments in this ASU provide, if certain criteria are met, optional expedients and exceptions for applying the U.S. GAAP requirements for contract modifications, hedging relationships and sales or transfers of debt securities that reference the London Interbank Offered Rate ("LIBOR") or another reference rate expected to be discontinued because of reference rate reform through December 31, 2022. The adoption of this ASU is optional and the election can be made anytime during the effective period. The amendments in this ASU are effective as of March 12, 2020 through December 31, 2022. MoneyGram is currently evaluating the impact of this standard and has not yet determined whether we will elect the optional expedients.
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments. The new credit impairment standard changes the impairment model for most financial assets and certain other instruments. For trade and other receivables, held-to-maturity debt securities, loans and other instruments, entities will be required to use a new forward-looking expected loss model that generally will result in the earlier recognition of allowances for credit losses. For available-for-sale debt securities with unrealized losses, entities will measure credit losses in a manner similar to what they do today, except that the losses will be recognized as allowances rather than as reductions in the amortized cost of the securities. To further assist with adoption and implementation of ASU 2016-13, the FASB issued the following ASUs:
ASU 2018-19 (Issued November 2018) — Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses
ASU 2019-04 (Issued April 2019) — Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses, Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging, and Topic 825, Financial Instruments
ASU 2019-05 (Issued May 2019) — Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Targeted Transition Relief
ASU 2019-10 (Issued November 2019) — Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326), Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815), and Leases (Topic 842): Effective Dates
ASU 2019-11 (Issued November 2019) — Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses
ASU 2020-02 (Issued February 2020) — Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326) and Leases (Topic 842): Amendments to SEC Paragraphs Pursuant to SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 119 and Update to SEC Section on Effective Date Related to Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) (SEC Update)
ASU 2020-03 (Issued March 2020) Codification Improvements to Financial Instruments

Table of Contents
ASU 2019-10 changed the effective date of ASU 2016-13 for public business entities that meet the definition of a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") filer but that are eligible to be a smaller reporting company to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022. As of November 15, 2019, which is the determination date for ASU 2016-13, MoneyGram was a smaller reporting company and, as such, has elected to adopt the amendments in these standards in 2023. We are still evaluating these ASUs, but we do not believe the adoption will have a material impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements.
The Company has determined that there have been no other recently adopted or issued accounting standards that had, or will have, a material impact on its condensed consolidated financial statements.
Note 2 — Reorganization Costs
In the first quarter of 2021, the Company committed to an operational plan to reduce overall operating expenses, including the elimination of approximately 110 positions across the Company and certain actions to reduce other ongoing operating expenses, including real estate-related expenses (the “2021 Organizational Realignment”). The actions are designed to streamline operations and structure the Company in a way that will be more agile and aligned around its plan to execute digital and market-specific strategies. The initial total expected cost of the 2021 Organizational Realignment was approximately $9.7 million. In the third quarter of 2021, we revised the total expected cost of the 2021 Organizational Realignment to $9.0 million.The Company anticipates related cash expenditures to be substantially paid out by the first quarter of 2022. Costs consisted primarily of one-time termination benefits for employee severance and related costs, which are recorded in "Compensation and benefits" on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.
The following table is a roll-forward of the reorganization costs accrual as of September 30, 2021:

Note 4 — Fair Value Measurement
Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability, or the exit price, in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date.
Assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis:
Available-for-sale investments — For residential mortgage-backed securities issued by U.S. government agencies, fair value measures are obtained from an independent pricing service. As market quotes are generally not readily available or accessible for these specific securities, the pricing service measures fair value through the use of pricing models utilizing reported market quotes adjusted for observable inputs, such as market prices for comparable securities, spreads, prepayment speeds, yield curves and delinquency rates. Accordingly, these securities are classified as Level 2 financial instruments.
For asset-backed and other securities, which include investments in limited partnerships, market quotes are generally not available. The Company utilizes broker quotes to measure market value, if available. Because the inputs and assumptions that brokers use to develop prices are unobservable, valuations that are based on brokers' quotes are classified as Level 3. Also, the Company uses pricing services that utilize pricing models based on market observable and unobservable data. The observable inputs include quotes for comparable securities, yield curves, default indices, interest rates, historical prepayment speeds and delinquency rates. These pricing models also apply an inactive market adjustment as a significant unobservable input. Accordingly, asset-backed and other securities valued using third-party pricing models are classified as Level 3.
Derivative financial instruments — Derivatives consist of forward contracts to manage income statement exposure to non-U.S. dollar exchange risk arising from the Company's assets and liabilities denominated in non-U.S. dollar currencies. The Company's forward contracts are well-established products, allowing the use of standardized models with market-based inputs. These models do not contain a high level of subjectivity, and the inputs are readily observable. Accordingly, the Company has classified its forward contracts as Level 2 financial instruments. See Note 6 — Derivative Financial Instruments for additional disclosure on the Company's forward contracts.

Assets and liabilities that are disclosed at fair value Debt and interest-bearing investments are carried at amortized cost; however, the Company estimates the fair value of debt for disclosure purposes. The fair values of the Term Loan, Senior Secured Notes and First Lien Credit Facility are estimated using an observable market quotation (Level 2). The fair value of the second lien credit facility is estimated using unobservable market inputs (Level 3), including broker quotes for comparable traded securities and yield curves.
The following table provides the carrying value and fair value for the credit facilities and the senior secured notes:

As of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, 81% and 86%, respectively, of the fair value of the available-for-sale portfolio were invested in residential mortgage-backed securities issued by U.S. government agencies. These securities have the implicit backing of the U.S. government, and the Company expects to receive full par value upon maturity or pay-down, as well as all interest payments.
Gains and Losses For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, the Company had no realized gains or losses.
Contractual Maturities — Actual maturities may differ from contractual maturities as borrowers may have the right to call or prepay obligations, sometimes without call or prepayment penalties. Maturities of residential mortgage-backed and asset-backed and other securities depend on the repayment characteristics and experience of the underlying obligations.

Note 6 — Derivative Financial Instruments
The Company uses forward contracts to manage its non-U.S. dollar needs and non-U.S. dollar exchange risk arising from its assets and liabilities denominated in non-U.S. dollars. While these contracts may mitigate certain non-U.S. dollar risk, they are not designated as hedges for accounting purposes and will result in gains and losses in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. The Company also reports gains and losses from the spread differential between the rate set for its transactions and the actual cost of currency at the time the Company buys or sells in the open market.
The following net gains (losses) related to assets and liabilities denominated in non-U.S. dollar are included in "Transaction and operations support" in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and in the "Net cash (used in) provided by operating activities" line in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows:

Net (loss) gain from non-U.S. dollar transactions and related forward contracts$(1.0)$6.5 $(1.9)$11.4 
As of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company had $631.4 million and $643.8 million, respectively, of outstanding notional amounts relating to its non-U.S. dollar forward contracts.
As of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company reflects the following fair values of derivative forward contract instruments in its Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets:

The Company's forward contracts are primarily executed with counterparties governed by International Swaps and Derivatives Association agreements that generally include standard netting arrangements. Asset and liability positions from forward contracts and all other non-U.S. dollar exchange transactions with the same counterparty are net settled upon maturity.
The Company is exposed to credit loss in the event of non-performance by counterparties to its derivative contracts. The Company actively monitors its exposure to credit risk through the use of credit approvals and credit limits and by selecting major international banks and financial institutions as counterparties. Collateral generally is not required of the counterparties or of the Company. In the unlikely event the counterparty fails to meet the contractual terms of the derivative contract, the Company's risk is limited to the fair value of the instrument. The Company has not had any historical instances of non-performance by any counterparties, nor does it anticipate any future instances of non-performance.
