NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)
 
(1) Interim Statement Presentation

Basis of Presentation

The condensed consolidated financial statements included herein have been prepared by Cerner Corporation ("Cerner," the "Company," "we," "us" or "our") without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included in our latest annual report on Form 10-K.
In management's opinion, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments (consisting of only normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly the financial position and the results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented. Our interim results as presented in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for the entire year.

The condensed consolidated financial statements were prepared using GAAP. These principles require us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

All references to quarters or nine month periods ended 2021 and 2020 in these notes to condensed consolidated financial statements refer to the respective three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2021 and September 30, 2020, unless otherwise noted.

Employee Separation Costs

In connection with involuntary separation benefits, we recognized less than $1 million and $6 million of expenses in the third quarters of 2021 and 2020, respectively; and $46 million and $21 million of expenses during the first nine months of 2021 and 2020, respectively.

In connection with voluntary separation benefits, we recognized $24 million and $2 million of expenses in the third quarters of 2021 and 2020, respectively; and $51 million and $18 million of expenses during the first nine months of 2021 and 2020, respectively.

Such employee separation costs are included in "General and administrative" expense in our condensed consolidated statements of operations.

At September 30, 2021, a liability of $19 million for such obligations is included in "Accrued payroll and tax withholdings" in our condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Real Estate Held For Sale

In connection with our operational improvement initiatives, during the nine months ended September 30, 2021, we made certain decisions regarding the continued use of certain of our owned real estate. As a result of those decisions, on July 9, 2021, we sold office space located in Kansas City, Missouri (known as our Oaks Campus), in April 2021 began the process of marketing office space located in Kansas City, Missouri (known as our Riverport Campus), in June 2021 began the process of marketing office space located in Kansas City, Kansas (known as our Continuous Campus), and in September 2021 began the process of marketing a portion of our office space located in Malvern, Pennsylvania. At September 30, 2021, these long-lived assets aggregating $101 million were held for sale and presented within our condensed consolidated balance sheets in "Property and equipment, net." In connection with the designation as held for sale, during the second quarter of 2021, we recorded a pre-tax charge of $68 million to reduce the amount of such long-lived assets to fair value, less estimated costs to sell. Such charge is included in "Sales and client service" expense in our condensed consolidated statements of operations.

Software Development Costs

In the second and third quarters of 2021, we recorded pre-tax charges of $48 million and $2 million, respectively, to reduce the carrying amount of certain capitalized software development costs to estimated net realizable value. Such charges are included in "Software development" expense in our condensed consolidated statements of operations.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

Reference Rate Reform. The Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting in March 2020 and ASU 2021-01, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Scope in January 2021. Such guidance provides optional financial reporting alternatives to reduce the cost and complexity associated with the accounting for contracts and hedging relationships affected by reference rate reform, such as the upcoming discontinuance of the London Interbank Offered Rate ("LIBOR"). The accommodations within this guidance may be applied prospectively from the beginning of our 2020 first quarter through December 31, 2022. We are currently evaluating the effect that this guidance may have on our contracts that reference LIBOR, specifically, our Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (as amended, the "Credit Agreement") and related interest rate swap. As of the date of this filing, we have not elected to apply any of the provisions of this guidance.

(2) Business Acquisition

On April 1, 2021, we acquired Kantar Health, a division of Kantar Group. Kantar Health provides data, analytics, commercial research, and consulting services to the life sciences industry. We believe this acquisition complements our existing Data-as-a-Service efforts as it provides a meaningful entry into the pharmaceutical market through Kantar Health's existing clients and their leadership team with important industry experience and relationships. These factors, combined with the synergies and economies of scale expected, are the basis for the acquisition and comprise the resulting goodwill recorded.

Consideration for the acquisition was a base cash purchase price of $375 million. The base purchase price is subject to post-closing adjustments for working capital and certain other adjustments, as specified in the Securities Purchase Agreement dated December 16, 2020, as amended.

Our acquisition of Kantar Health is being treated as a purchase in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification Topic ("ASC") 805, Business Combinations, which requires allocation of the purchase price to the estimated fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the transaction. The allocation of purchase price is based on management's judgment after evaluating several factors, including a preliminary valuation assessment. The allocation of purchase price is preliminary and subject to changes, as appraisals of intangible assets are finalized, working capital and certain other adjustments are agreed upon, and additional information becomes available. The following is a summary of the preliminary allocation of purchase price:
(In thousands)Allocation Amount

Accrued payroll and tax withholdings(11,031)
Other current liabilities(3,777)
Deferred income taxes(10,169)
Other liabilities(10,250)
Total purchase price$365,171 

The fair values of the acquired intangible assets were estimated by applying the income approach. Such estimations required the use of inputs that were unobservable in the marketplace (Level 3), including a discount rate that we estimated would be used by a market participant in valuing these assets, projections of revenues and cash flows, and client attrition rates, among others. The acquired intangible assets are being amortized over a weighted-average period of 13 years. Refer to Note (7) for further information about the fair value level hierarchy.

The goodwill of $218 million was allocated among our Domestic and International operating segments, as shown below, with approximately $160 million of such goodwill expected to be deductible for tax purposes.

Ending balance at September 30, 2021$971,235 $155,608 $1,126,843 

Our condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 include revenues of $45 million and $90 million, respectively, attributable to the acquired business since the April 1, 2021 acquisition date. The earnings contribution from the acquired business for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 was not material to our condensed consolidated financial statements. Pro forma results of operations, assuming the acquisition was made at the beginning of the earliest period presented, have not been presented because the effect of this acquisition was not material to our results.

Transaction Price Allocated to Remaining Performance Obligations

As of September 30, 2021, the aggregate amount of transaction price allocated to performance obligations that are unsatisfied (or partially unsatisfied) for executed contracts approximates $13.12 billion of which we expect to recognize approximately 30% of the revenue over the next 12 months and the remainder thereafter.

Contract Liabilities

Customer payments received in advance of satisfaction of the related performance obligations are deferred as contract liabilities. Such amounts are classified in our condensed consolidated balance sheets as "Deferred revenue". During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, we recognized $340 million of revenues that were included in our contract liability balance at the beginning of such period.

Significant Customers

Revenues attributable to our relationships (as the prime contractor or a subcontractor) with U.S. government agencies, within our Domestic segment, comprised 21% and 19% of our consolidated revenues for the third quarters of 2021 and 2020, respectively; and 20% and 17% for the first nine months of 2021 and 2020, respectively. Amounts due in connection with these relationships comprised 17% and 13% of client receivables as of September 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively.
