Baker Hughes, a GE company, LLC
Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

NOTE 1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
DESCRIPTION OF THE BUSINESS
Baker Hughes, a GE company, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the Company, BHGE LLC, we, us, or our), and the successor to Baker Hughes Incorporated, a Delaware corporation (BHI) is an energy technology company with a diversified portfolio of technologies and services that span the entire energy value chain. We conduct business in more than 120 countries and employ approximately 68,000 employees.
On July 3, 2017, we completed the combination of the oil and gas business (GE O&G) of General Electric Company (GE) and BHI (the Transactions). As of September 30, 2019, GE owns approximately 36.8% of our common units and Baker Hughes Company (Baker Hughes) owns approximately 63.2% of our common units.
BASIS OF PRESENTATION
In connection with the Transactions, we entered into and are governed by an Amended & Restated Limited Liability Company Agreement, dated as of July 3, 2017 (the BHGE LLC Agreement). Under the BHGE LLC Agreement, EHHC Newco, LLC (EHHC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Baker Hughes, is our sole managing member and Baker Hughes is the sole managing member of EHHC. As our managing member, EHHC conducts, directs and exercises full control over all our activities, including our day-to-day business affairs and decision-making, without the approval of any other member. As such, EHHC is responsible for all our operational and administrative decisions and the day-to-day management of our business.
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. and such principles, U.S. GAAP) and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC for interim financial information. Accordingly, certain information and disclosures normally included in our annual financial statements have been condensed or omitted. Therefore, these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our audited consolidated and combined financial statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 (2018 Annual Report).
In the opinion of management, the condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary by management to fairly state our results of operations, financial position and cash flows of the Company and its subsidiaries for the periods presented and are not indicative of the results that may be expected for a full year. The Company's financial statements have been prepared on a consolidated basis. Under this basis of presentation, our financial statements consolidate all of our subsidiaries (entities in which we have a controlling financial interest, most often because we hold a majority voting interest). All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.
In the Company's financial statements and notes, certain amounts have been reclassified to conform with the current year presentation. In the notes to unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, all dollar and unit amounts in tabulations are in millions of dollars and units, respectively, unless otherwise indicated. Certain columns and rows in our financial statements and notes thereto may not add due to the use of rounded numbers.
In the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, separation and merger related costs include costs incurred in connection with the separation from GE and the finalization of the Master Agreement Framework. In the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, separation and merger related costs are comprised solely of costs associated with the Transactions. See "Note 15. Related Party Transactions" for further information on the Master Agreement Framework.
SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Please refer to "Note 1. Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies," to our consolidated financial statements from our 2018 Annual Report for the discussion of our significant accounting policies. Please refer to the "New Accounting Standards Adopted" section of this Note for changes to our accounting policies.

Baker Hughes, a GE company, LLC
Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

Cash and Cash Equivalents
As of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, we had $1,157 million and $1,208 million, respectively, of cash held in bank accounts that cannot be released, transferred or otherwise converted into a currency that is regularly transacted internationally, due to lack of market liquidity, capital controls or similar monetary or exchange limitations limiting the flow of capital out of the jurisdiction. These funds are available to fund operations and growth in these jurisdictions, and we do not currently anticipate a need to transfer these funds to the U.S. Included in these amounts are $378 million and $461 million, as of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively, held on behalf of GE.
Cash and cash equivalents includes a total of $528 million and $747 million of cash at September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively, held on behalf of GE, and a corresponding liability is reported in short-term borrowings. See "Note 15. Related Party Transactions" for further details.
NEW ACCOUNTING STANDARDS ADOPTED
Leases
On January 1, 2019, we adopted Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2016-02, Leases, and the related amendments (ASC 842). This ASU requires lessees to recognize an operating lease asset and a lease liability on the balance sheet, with the exception of short-term leases. We adopted the standard using the modified retrospective approach under which leases existing at, or entered into after January 1, 2019 were required to be recognized and measured. Prior period amounts have not been adjusted and continue to be reflected in accordance with our historical accounting. The Company has elected the practical expedients upon transition that allow entities not to reassess lease identification, classification and initial direct costs for leases that existed prior to adoption. 
The most significant impact of the standard is the recognition of right-of-use (ROU) assets and operating lease liabilities by lessees for those leases classified as operating leases. Under the standard, disclosures are required to meet the objective of enabling users of financial statements to assess the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. We implemented internal controls and key system functionality to enable the preparation of financial information on adoption.
We determine if an arrangement is a lease at inception. ROU assets are included in "All other assets" and operating lease liabilities are included in "All other current liabilities" and "All other liabilities" on our consolidated statement of financial position. Finance lease assets are included in "Property, plant and equipment," and finance lease liabilities are included in "Short-term debt," and "Long-term debt" on our consolidated statement of financial position.
ROU assets represent our right to use an underlying asset for the lease term and lease liabilities represent our obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. ROU assets and operating lease liabilities are recognized at the later of the lease commencement date or the effective date of adoption of ASC 842 on January 1, 2019, based on the present value of lease payments over the remaining lease term. Finance lease ROU assets and liabilities are recognized at commencement date. As most of our leases do not provide an implicit rate, we use our incremental collateralized borrowing rate based on the information available at commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments. Our lease terms may include options to extend or terminate the lease when it is reasonably certain that we will exercise that option. Lease expense for operating lease payments is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. Short-term leases under one year do not result in a ROU asset, but are recognized in the income statement only on a straight-line basis over the lease term. The Company has made an election to include within our operating lease liability future payments for both lease and non-lease components. See "Note 8. Leases" for additional information.

Baker Hughes, a GE company, LLC
Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

The adoption of this standard resulted in the recording of ROU assets and operating lease liabilities of $844 million as of January 1, 2019 on our consolidated statements of financial position with an immaterial impact on our consolidated statements of equity and no related impact on our consolidated statements of income (loss). Short-term leases have not been recorded on the consolidated statements of financial position. Our accounting for finance leases remained substantially unchanged.
Derivatives and Hedging
On January 1, 2019, we adopted ASU 2017-12, Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): Targeted Improvements to Accounting for Hedging Activities. Since there was no impact from the new guidance to our consolidated financial statements, no transition adjustments were recorded. ASU 2017-12 simplifies the application of hedge accounting and expands the strategies that qualify for hedge accounting. In accordance with the ASU, both the effective and ineffective portion of a cash flow hedge are initially reported as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) and reclassified into earnings when the forecasted transaction affects earnings. The ASU requires certain changes to the presentation of hedge accounting in the financial statements and some new or modified disclosures. See "Note 13. Financial Instruments" for additional information.
NEW ACCOUNTING STANDARDS TO BE ADOPTED
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses. The ASU introduces a new accounting model, the Current Expected Credit Losses model (CECL), which requires earlier recognition of credit losses and additional disclosures related to credit risk. The CECL model utilizes a lifetime expected credit loss measurement objective for the recognition of credit losses for loans and other receivables at the time the financial asset is originated or acquired. The expected credit losses are adjusted each period for changes in expected lifetime credit losses. This model replaces the multiple existing impairment models in current U.S. GAAP, which generally require that a loss be incurred before it is recognized. The new standard will also apply to receivables arising from revenue transactions such as contract assets and accounts receivables and is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. We continue to evaluate the effect of the standard on our consolidated financial statements.
All other new accounting pronouncements that have been issued but not yet effective are currently being evaluated and at this time are not expected to have a material impact on our financial position or results of operations.

In the second quarter of 2018, we concluded the final determination of the fair value of the assets and liabilities and the related goodwill associated with the acquisition of BHI. Of the total goodwill of $13,669 million resulting from the acquisition of BHI, $12,604 million is allocated to our Oilfield Services segment and the remainder to our other segments based on the expected benefit from the synergies of the acquisition.

Baker Hughes, a GE company, LLC
Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

During the third quarter of each fiscal year, in conjunction with our annual strategic planning process, we perform a quantitative goodwill impairment test for each of our reporting units. Our reporting units are the same as our four reportable segments. In performing this quantitative assessment, we determine the fair value of each of our reporting units using a combination of the income approach and the market approach by assessing each of these valuation methodologies based upon availability and relevance of comparable company data and determining the appropriate weighting.
Under the income approach, the fair value for each of our reporting units was determined based on the present value of estimated future cash flows, discounted at an appropriate risk-adjusted rate. We used our internal forecasts to estimate future cash flows, including an estimate of long-term future growth rates, based on our most recent views of the long-term outlook for each reporting unit, which includes assumptions about future commodity pricing and expected demand for our goods and services. Due to the inherent uncertainties involved in making estimates and assumptions, actual results may differ from those assumed in our forecasts.
We derived our discount rates using a capital asset pricing model and analyzing published rates for industries relevant to our reporting units to estimate the cost of equity financing. We used discount rates that are commensurate with the risks and uncertainties inherent in the respective businesses and in our internally developed forecasts. Discount rates used in our reporting unit valuations ranged from 10.0% to 11.5% as of our testing date and these rates may change in future periods based on changes in the U.S. Treasury rate, inflation or other factors.
Valuations using the market approach were derived from metrics of publicly traded companies or historically completed transactions of comparable businesses. The selection of comparable businesses was based on the markets in which the reporting units operate giving consideration to risk profiles, size, geography, and diversity of products and services.
After quantifying the fair value, the carrying value of each reporting unit is then compared to its fair value and if the carrying value is more than its fair value, a step two analysis is performed. In the step two analysis, the amount of goodwill impairment, if any, is derived by deducting the fair value of the reporting unit’s assets and liabilities from the fair value of its equity, and comparing that amount with the carrying amount of goodwill.
Our annual impairment test of goodwill was completed as of July 1, 2019 for all four of our reporting units. The step one impairment test performed included key assumptions related to macroeconomic and industry conditions, overall financial performance of the reporting unit, short and long-term forecasts, the impact, if any, of the separation from GE among other factors, all of which require considerable judgment. In addition, we also considered the declines in Baker Hughes' market capitalization below its book value including the magnitude and duration of those declines.
Based on the results of our step one testing, the fair values of each of the four reporting units exceeded their carrying values; therefore, the second step of the impairment test was not required to be performed and no goodwill impairment was recognized. The Turbomachinery & Process Solutions and Digital Solutions reporting units had fair values that were substantially in excess of their carrying values. The Oilfield Services (OFS) and Oilfield Equipment (OFE) reporting units had fair values that exceeded their carrying values by 8.0% and 10.0%, respectively.
As of September 30, 2019, the OFS and OFE reporting units remain at-risk for future goodwill impairments as it is reasonably possible that judgments and estimates of certain key assumptions could change in future periods and may result in a reduction in fair value. Therefore, we performed sensitivity analyses for two key assumptions, discount rate and long-term growth rate for the OFS and OFE reporting units. We assumed a hypothetical 100-basis-point decrease in the expected long-term growth rate or a hypothetical 100-basis-point increase in the discount rate. Both scenarios independently yielded an estimated fair value for both the OFS and OFE reporting units below their carrying value. In future periods, we will perform qualitative assessments of our key assumptions to determine whether a triggering event has occurred which may require us to perform a quantitative test of the at-risk reporting units at that time. Any significant adverse changes in future periods to our internal forecasts or the external market conditions, including any negative impact as a result of the separation from GE, if any, could reasonably be expected to negatively affect our key assumptions and may result in future goodwill impairment charges which could be material.

Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

Baker Hughes' stock price has historically experienced volatility as a result of industry-wide and macroeconomic factors, including global oil prices. In addition, more recently, we believe that Baker Hughes' stock price has been subject to increased volatility resulting from, among other things, uncertainty around the impact, if any, of GE's separation from Baker Hughes and consequential secondary offering of Baker Hughes' Class A common stock. While we believe that Baker Hughes' stock price reflects transitory circumstances/conditions as described above, any future sustained declines in its stock price could be a triggering event which may require us to perform a quantitative test at that time.

We have a $3 billion committed unsecured revolving credit facility (the 2017 Credit Agreement) with commercial banks maturing in July 2022. The 2017 Credit Agreement contains certain customary representations and warranties, certain affirmative covenants and no negative covenants. Upon the occurrence of certain events of default, our obligations under the 2017 Credit Agreement may be accelerated. Such events of default include payment defaults to lenders under the 2017 Credit Agreement, and other customary defaults. No such events of default have occurred. At September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, there were no borrowings under the 2017 Credit Agreement.
We have a commercial paper program under which we may issue from time to time up to $3 billion in commercial paper with maturities of no more than 397 days. At September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, there were no borrowings outstanding under the commercial paper program.
Concurrent with the Transactions associated with the acquisition of BHI on July 3, 2017, Baker Hughes Co-Obligor, Inc. became a co-obligor, jointly and severally with us, on our registered debt securities.  This co-obligor is a 100%-owned finance subsidiary of the Company that was incorporated for the sole purpose of serving as a co-obligor of debt securities and has no assets or operations other than those related to its sole purpose. Baker Hughes Co-Obligor, Inc. is also a co-obligor of the $3,950 million senior notes issued in December 2017 by us in a private placement and subsequently registered in January 2018.
Certain Senior Notes contain covenants that restrict our ability to take certain actions, including, but not limited to, the creation of certain liens securing debt, the entry into certain sale-leaseback transactions and engaging in certain merger, consolidation and asset sale transactions in excess of specified limits.
The estimated fair value of total borrowings at September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018 was $7,159 million and $6,629 million, respectively. For a majority of our borrowings the fair value was determined using quoted period-end market prices. Where market prices are not available, we estimate fair values based on valuation methodologies using current market interest rate data adjusted for our non-performance risk.
See "Note 15. Related Party Transactions" for additional information on the short-term borrowings from GE.

NOTE 10. EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLANS
Historically, we were allocated relevant participation costs for certain employees who participated in GE employee benefit plans as part of multi-employer plans. Certain of our U.S. employees were covered under various U.S. GE employee benefit plans, including GE's retirement plans (pension, retiree health and life insurance, and savings benefit plans). From January 1, 2019, these U.S. employees ceased to participate in the GE U.S. plans. In addition, certain United Kingdom (UK) employees participated in the GE UK Pension Plan. From May 1, 2019, these UK employees ceased to participate in the GE UK Pension Plan. Therefore, we incurred no expense for the three months ended September 30, 2019. Expense was $46 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018. Expenses associated with these plans were $3 million and $126 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively. During the second quarter of 2019, substantially all of the assets and liabilities of the GE UK Pension Plan related to the oil & gas businesses have been transferred to us on a fully funded basis.
In addition to these GE plans, certain of our employees are also covered by company sponsored employee defined benefit plans. These defined benefit plans include four U.S. plans and six non-U.S. plans, primarily in the UK, Germany, and Canada, all with plan assets or obligations greater than $20 million. We use a December 31 measurement date for these plans. These defined benefit plans generally provide benefits to employees based on formulas recognizing length of service and earnings.
The components of net periodic cost (benefit) of plans sponsored by us are as follows for the three and nine months ended September 30:

NOTE 11. INCOME TAXES
For the quarter ended September 30, 2019, income tax expense was $107 million compared to a tax expense of $108 million for the prior year quarter. The difference between the U.S. statutory tax rate of 21% and the current effective tax rate of 48% is primarily related to the geographical mix of earnings and losses, coupled with $47 million related to losses with no tax benefit due to valuation allowances and tax effects of the U.S. partnership structure.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2019, income tax expense was $269 million compared to a tax expense of $208 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. The difference between the U.S. statutory tax rate of 21% and the current effective tax rate of 60% is primarily related to the geographical mix of earnings and losses, coupled with $137 million related to losses with no tax benefit due to valuation allowances and tax effects of the U.S. partnership structure.
We are a partnership for U.S. federal tax purposes, therefore, any tax effects associated with the U.S. are recognized by our members and not reflected in our tax expense.

In September 2019, we also repurchased 11.9 million of our common units from GE and its affiliates for an aggregate of $250 million, or $21.07 per unit, which is the same per unit price, net of discounts and commissions paid by the underwriters to GE and its affiliates in the underwritten public offering. In connection with this repurchase, the corresponding shares of Class B common stock of Baker Hughes held by GE and its affiliates were canceled.
As a result of the exchange of Baker Hughes shares in the secondary offering and our common units repurchased in September 2019, GE's ownership of our common units reduced during the third quarter of 2019 from approximately 50.3% to approximately 36.8%.
