Basis of Presentation Avis Budget Group, Inc. provides mobility solutions to businesses and consumers worldwide. The accompanying Consolidated Financial Statements include the accounts and transactions of Avis Budget Group, Inc. and its subsidiaries, as well as entities in which Avis Budget Group, Inc. directly or indirectly has a controlling financial interest (collectively, “we”, “our”, “us”, or the “Company”).
We operate the following reportable business segments:
• Americas —consisting primarily of (i) vehicle rental operations in North America, South America, Central America and the Caribbean, (ii) car sharing operations in certain of these markets, and (iii) licensees in the areas in which we do not operate directly.
• International —consisting primarily of (i) vehicle rental operations in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australasia, (ii) car sharing operations in certain of these markets, and (iii) licensees in the areas in which we do not operate directly.
We have completed the business acquisitions discussed in Note 6 to these Consolidated Financial Statements. The operating results of the acquired businesses are included in the accompanying Consolidated Financial Statements from the dates of acquisition.
We present separately the financial data of our vehicle programs. These programs are distinct from our other activities since the assets under vehicle programs are generally funded through the issuance of debt that is collateralized by such assets. The income generated by these assets is used, in part, to repay the principal and interest associated with the debt. Cash inflows and outflows relating to the acquisition of such assets and the principal debt repayment or financing of such assets are classified as activities of our vehicle programs. We believe it is appropriate to segregate the financial data of our vehicle programs because, ultimately, the source of repayment of such debt is the realization of such assets.
Liquidity and Management’s Plans
The COVID-19 pandemic, which rapidly spread across the globe in 2020, resulted in an economic slowdown and significant disruptions in travel that had a negative impact on our business, specifically a significant decline in vehicle rental volumes. During the year ended December 31, 2021, global travel restrictions were eased, leading to an increase in travel demand and an improvement in general economic conditions. We believe the full extent of the ongoing impact of this virus on our long-term operational performance and liquidity will depend on future developments, including those outside of our control, such as the spread of new variants of the virus which may be resistant to currently approved vaccines and the implementation of new or continued travel restrictions.
In April 2020, we entered into an amendment (the “Amendment”) to our senior credit facilities, consisting of an approximate ly $1.2 billion term loan maturing in 2027 and a $1.8 billion revolving credit facility maturing in 2023, which remain in place after the Amendment. The Amendment provided for relief from a quarterly-tested leverage covenant contained in the credit agreement governing the senior credit facilities until June 30, 2021, during which time additional restrictions and requirements were also imposed. We subsequently further amended the credit agreement in February 2021 to permit refinancing of certain existing indebtedness and in July 2021 to remove the restrictions imposed in April 2020, increase the revolving credit facility to $1.95 billion and extend the maturity of the facility to 2026. As a result, we have no meaningful corporate debt maturities until 2024.
