Also contributing was an increase of sales in our Connected Living business, lower inventory purchases in our mobile business and $26.7 million increase in cash from the settlement of a series of derivative transactions that we entered into in 2017 to hedge interest rate risk related to the anticipated borrowings

to be used for the TWG acquisition (all in 2018).

Amounts for the six months ended June 30, 2018 primarily consist of $1.49 billion of cash used to fund a portion of the total purchase of the TWG acquisition, inclusive of the $595.9 million repayment of pre-existing TWG debt at the Acquisition Date (such debt was not legally assumed by Assurant), net of $277.3 million in TWG cash acquired.

The Company is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "AIZ".
Through its operating subsidiaries, the Company provides mobile device protection products and services; extended service contracts and related services for consumer electronics and appliances; vehicle protection services; credit insurance and other related products; pre-funded funeral insurance and annuity products; lender-placed homeowners insurance; manufactured housing and flood insurance; and renters insurance and related products.

2. Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information. Accordingly, these statements do not include all of the information and notes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. The consolidated financial statements include the results of TWG from June 1, 2018.
The interim financial data as of June 30, 2018 and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 is unaudited; in the opinion of management, the interim data includes all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair statement of the results for the interim periods. The unaudited interim consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and all of its wholly owned subsidiaries. All inter-company transactions and balances are eliminated in consolidation.
Operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2018. The accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and related notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 (the “2017 annual financial statements”).
3. Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Adopted
Revenue recognition from contracts with customers: On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted the new guidance related to revenue recognition from contracts with customers. The new guidance was adopted using the modified retrospective approach, whereby the cumulative effect of adoption to retained earnings was recognized as of January 1, 2018 and the comparative information was not restated and continues to be reported under the accounting standards in effect for those periods.
The guidance affects any entity that either enters into contracts with customers to transfer goods or services or enters into contracts for the transfer of nonfinancial assets unless those contracts are within the scope of other standards. Insurance and similar contracts issued by insurance entities are specifically excluded from the scope of the amended revenue recognition guidance. As such, this standard only applies to the Company’s service contracts and sales of products, including those related to providing administrative services, mobile device related services, mortgage property risk management services and similar fee for service arrangements. Revenues from these contracts correspond to approximately 20% of the Company’s total 2017 revenues. The standard utilizes a five-step approach that emphasizes the recognition of revenue when the performance obligations are met by the Company in order to reflect the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration the Company expects to receive.
As of the adoption date, accounts payable and other liabilities decreased by $10.0 million, other assets decreased by $0.3 million, retained earnings increased by $7.5 million, and deferred taxes increased by $2.2 million due to a change in the revenue recognition associated with certain mobile upgrade programs. The change reflects the recognition of upgrade revenue

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (unaudited)
(In millions, except number of shares and per share amounts)
 
 
 




in proportion to the pattern of rights expected to be exercised as opposed to recognition when the event (upgrade or end of term) occurs. The comparable mobile upgrade programs impacted by this change were immaterial in prior periods.
Upon adoption of the new revenue recognition guidance, the Company’s revenues for service contracts and sales of products are subject to additional disclosure requirements, such as those related to providing disaggregated revenue disclosure, changes in contract balances, enhanced description of performance obligations, basis of determining costs and related significant judgments used in determining appropriate revenue recognition procedures. Refer to Note 6 for the Contract Revenues note.
Financial instruments measurement and classification: On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted the amended guidance on the measurement and classification of financial instruments whereby all common and preferred stocks are measured at fair value through the income statement. Upon adoption, the Company recorded a cumulative effect adjustment to increase retained earnings by $33.9 million, which represents a reclassification from AOCI of the unrealized gains on common and preferred stock as of the date of adoption. The Company's other-than-temporary impairment policies have been updated to reflect that the change in value for preferred and common stocks are now reported in net income. For certain private equity investments recorded in Other investments, the Company elected the measurement alternative to record these investments at cost, less any impairment, plus or minus changes resulting from observable price changes in orderly transactions for an identical or similar investment of the same issuer. The measurement alternative has been applied on a prospective basis.
Income tax consequences for intra-entity transfers of assets: On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted the amended guidance on tax accounting for intra-entity transfers of assets. The amended guidance requires an entity to recognize the income tax consequences of an intra-entity transfer of an asset other than inventory when the transfer occurs as opposed to when it has been sold to an outside party. Also, the amended guidance eliminates the exception for an intra-entity transfer of an asset other than inventory. The adoption of this amended guidance did not have an impact on the Company’s financial position and results of operations.
Statement of cash flows presentation and classification: On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted the amended guidance on presentation and classification in the statement of cash flows. The amended guidance addresses certain specific cash flow issues including debt prepayment and debt extinguishment costs; settlement of zero-coupon or insignificant coupon debt instruments; contingent consideration payments made after a business combination; proceeds from the settlement of insurance claims; proceeds from the settlement of corporate-owned life insurance policies (including bank-owned life insurance policies); distributions received from equity method investees; beneficial interests in securitization transactions; and guidance related to the identification of the primary source for separately identifiable cash flows. The adoption of this amended guidance did not have an impact on the Company’s financial position and results of operations.
Accounting for hedging activities: On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted the amended guidance related to hedge effectiveness testing requirements, income statement presentation and disclosure and hedge accounting qualification criteria. The amended guidance requires that realized gains and losses on forecasted transactions are recorded in the financial statement line item to which the underlying forecasted transactions relates; simplifies the ongoing effectiveness testing; and reduces the complexity of hedge accounting requirements for new derivative contracts. The adoption of this amended guidance did not have a material impact on the Company's financial position and results of operations.
Not Yet Adopted
Classification of certain tax effects from accumulated other comprehensive income: In February 2018, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued amended guidance on reclassifying the stranded tax effects from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 from accumulated other comprehensive income to retained earnings. The amended guidance is effective in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Therefore, the Company is required to adopt the guidance on January 1, 2019. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in any interim period for reporting periods in which financial statements have not yet been issued. The amendments in this guidance should be applied either in the period of adoption or retrospectively to each period (or periods) in which the effect of the change in the U.S. federal corporate income tax rate in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is recognized. The adoption of this amended guidance will not have a material impact on the Company's financial position and results of operations.
Reporting credit losses of assets held at amortized cost: In June 2016, the FASB issued amended guidance on reporting credit losses for assets held at amortized cost and available for sale debt securities. For assets held at amortized cost, the

10

Assurant, Inc.
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (unaudited)
(In millions, except number of shares and per share amounts)
 
 
 




amended guidance eliminates the probable recognition threshold and instead requires an entity to reflect the current estimate of all expected credit losses. For available for sale debt securities, credit losses will be measured in a manner similar to current accounting requirements; however, the amended guidance requires that credit losses be presented as an allowance rather than as a permanent impairment. The amendments affect loans, debt securities, trade receivables, net investments in leases, off balance sheet credit exposures, reinsurance receivables, and any other financial assets not excluded from the scope that have the contractual right to receive cash. The amended guidance is effective in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Therefore, the Company is required to adopt the guidance on January 1, 2020. Early adoption is permitted as of the fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is evaluating the requirements of this amended guidance and the potential impact on the Company’s financial position and results of operations.
Lease accounting: In February 2016, the FASB issued new guidance on leases, which replaces the current lease guidance. The new guidance requires that entities recognize the assets and liabilities associated with leases on the balance sheet and disclose key information about leasing arrangements. The new guidance is effective in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Therefore, the Company is required to adopt the guidance on January 1, 2019. Early adoption is permitted. The Company and its subsidiaries lease office space and equipment under operating lease arrangements. The Company performed an inventory of its lease arrangements and is in the process of assessing the potential impact of the new lease standard on the Company’s financial position and results of operations.
4. Acquisitions
TWG Acquisition
On May 31, 2018 (the “Acquisition Date”), the Company completed the acquisition of TWG Holdings Limited (“TWG Holdings”) and its subsidiaries for a total enterprise value of $2.47 billion. This reflects $894.9 million in cash, the repayment of TWG’s $595.9 million pre-existing debt and $975.5 million in newly-issued Assurant, Inc. common stock. As a result, the equityholders of TWG Holdings, including TPG Capital, received a total of 10,399,862 shares of Assurant common stock, which represented 16.5% of the Company's outstanding shares of common stock as of June 30, 2018. TWG specializes in the underwriting, administration and marketing of service contracts on a wide variety of consumer goods, including automobiles, consumer electronics and major home appliances. The acquisition will enhance the Company's position as a leading lifestyle provider, particularly within the Global Automotive business, with significant operating synergies expected and a deepened global footprint. The Company financed the cash consideration and repayment of TWG's pre-existing debt through a combination of available cash and external financing. Refer to Notes 12 and 15 for more information on the issuances of debt and mandatory convertible preferred stock, respectively, related to the financing of the acquisition.
