MOLSON COORS BREWING COMPANY AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1. Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Unless otherwise noted in this report, any description of "we", "us" or "our" includes Molson Coors Brewing Company ("MCBC" or the "Company"), principally a holding company, and its operating and non-operating subsidiaries included within our reporting segments and Corporate. Our reporting segments include: Molson Coors Canada ("MCC" or Canada segment), operating in Canada; MillerCoors LLC ("MillerCoors" or U.S. segment), which is accounted for by us under the equity method of accounting, operating in the United States ("U.S."); Molson Coors Europe (Europe segment), operating in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Montenegro, Republic of Ireland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and the United Kingdom ("U.K."); and Molson Coors International ("MCI"), operating in various other countries. Unless otherwise indicated, information in this report is presented in U.S. dollars ("USD" or "$") and comparisons are to comparable prior periods.
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements reflect all adjustments which are necessary for a fair statement of the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. ("U.S. GAAP"). Such unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q pursuant to the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations.
These unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 ("Annual Report"), and have been prepared on a consistent basis with the accounting policies described in Note 1 of the Notes to the Audited Consolidated Financial Statements ("Notes") included in our Annual Report. Our accounting policies did not change in the first quarter of 2016.
The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2016, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved for the full fiscal year.
2. New Accounting Pronouncements
New Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted
In March 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued authoritative guidance intended to simplify and improve several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment transactions. The new guidance includes amendments to share-based accounting for income taxes, including adjustments to how excess tax benefits and a company's payments for tax withholdings should be classified in the statement of cash flows. This guidance is effective for annual and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, with early adoption permitted. We are currently evaluating the potential impact on our financial position and results of operations upon adoption of this guidance.
In February 2016, the FASB issued authoritative guidance intended to increase transparency and comparability among organizations by recognizing lease assets and liabilities on the balance sheet and disclosing key information about leasing arrangements. Under the new guidance, lessees will be required to recognize a right-of-use asset and a lease liability, measured on a discounted basis, at the commencement date for all leases with terms greater than twelve months. Additionally, this guidance will require disclosures to help investors and other financial statement users to better understand the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases, including qualitative and quantitative requirements. The guidance should be applied under a modified retrospective transition approach for leases existing at the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the adoption-period financial statements. Any leases that expire before the initial application date will not require any accounting adjustment. This guidance is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. We are currently evaluating the potential impact on our financial position and results of operations upon adoption of this guidance.
In July 2015, the FASB issued authoritative guidance intended to simplify the measurement of inventory. The amendment requires entities to measure in-scope inventory at the lower of cost and net realizable value, and replaces the current requirement to measure in-scope inventory at the lower of cost or market, which considers replacement cost, net realizable value, and net realizable value less an approximate normal profit margin. This guidance is effective for annual reporting periods, and interim periods within those annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2016. The amendment should be applied prospectively with early adoption permitted. We are currently evaluating the potential impact on our financial position and results of operations upon adoption of this guidance, but anticipate that such impact would be minimal.

8


In May 2014, the FASB issued authoritative guidance related to new accounting requirements for the recognition of revenue from contracts with customers. The core principle of the guidance is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled to in exchange for the goods or services. In March 2016, the FASB issued guidance intended to provide interpretive clarifications related to the principal versus agent considerations in the new revenue recognition standard. This guidance clarifies how an entity should identify the unit of accounting for the principal versus agent evaluation and how it should apply the control principle to certain types of arrangements. In April 2016, the FASB issued further amendments intended to reduce the cost and complexity surrounding identifying performance obligations and to improve the operability and understandability of the licensing implementation guidance. The new standard and related amendments are effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, and interim periods within those annual periods. Early adoption is permitted for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within that annual reporting period. Upon adoption of the new standard, the use of either a full retrospective or cumulative effect transition method is permitted. We have not yet selected a transition method and are currently evaluating the potential impact on our financial position and results of operations upon adoption of this guidance.
Other than the items noted above, there have been no new accounting pronouncements not yet effective or adopted in the current year that we believe have a significant impact, or potential significant impact, to our condensed consolidated financial statements.
3. Segment Reporting
Our reporting segments are based on the key geographic regions in which we operate, which are the basis on which our chief operating decision maker evaluates the performance of the business. Our reporting segments consist of Canada, the U.S., Europe and MCI. Corporate is not a segment and primarily includes interest and certain other general and administrative costs that are not allocated to any of the operating segments. No single customer accounted for more than 10% of our consolidated sales for the three months ended March 31, 2016, and March 31, 2015, respectively. Net sales represent sales to third-party external customers. Inter-segment transactions impacting sales revenues and income (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes are insignificant (other than those with MillerCoors, see Note 4, "Investments" for additional detail) and eliminated in consolidation.
The following table presents net sales by segment:

On February 3, 2016, we received proceeds of $2.5 billion, net of issuance costs from our January 26, 2016, equity offering of 29.9 million shares of our Class B common stock. See Note 16, "Pending Acquisition" for further discussion.
4. Investments
Our investments include both equity method and consolidated investments. Those entities identified as variable interest entities ("VIEs") have been evaluated to determine whether we are the primary beneficiary. The VIEs included under "Consolidated VIEs" below are those for which we have concluded that we are the primary beneficiary and accordingly, consolidate these entities. None of our consolidated VIEs held debt as of March 31, 2016, or December 31, 2015. We have not provided any financial support to any of our VIEs during the year that we were not previously contractually obligated to provide. Amounts due to and due from our equity method investments are recorded as affiliate accounts payable and affiliate accounts receivable.
Authoritative guidance related to the consolidation of VIEs requires that we continually reassess whether we are the primary beneficiary of VIEs in which we have an interest. As such, the conclusion regarding the primary beneficiary status is subject to change, and we continually evaluate circumstances that could require consolidation or deconsolidation. As of March 31, 2016, and December 31, 2015, our consolidated VIEs are Cobra Beer Partnership, Ltd. ("Cobra U.K.") and Grolsch U.K. Ltd. ("Grolsch"). Our unconsolidated VIEs are Brewers Retail Inc. ("BRI") and Brewers' Distributor Ltd. ("BDL").
In June 2015, our equity method investment, BRI, entered into a Canadian Dollar ("CAD") 150 million revolving credit facility with Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (“CIBC”), maturing one year after issuance, with one-year renewal options subject to approval by CIBC. In conjunction with the issuance of the revolving credit facility, we and two additional shareholders of BRI were each required to guarantee BRI’s obligations under the facility, with our proportionate share of the guarantee totaling 45.9%. As a result of this guarantee, we have a current liability of $30.4 million and $16.9 million as of March 31, 2016, and December 31, 2015, respectively. The carrying value of the guarantee equals its fair value, which considers an adjustment for our own non-performance risk and is considered a Level 2 measurement. The offset to the guarantee liability was recorded as an adjustment to our equity method investment balance. The guarantee liability was calculated based on our proportionate 45.9% share of BRI’s total revolving credit facility outstanding balance at March 31, 2016. The resulting change in equity investment balance during the year due to movements in the guarantee represents a non-cash investing activity.
In 2015, we, along with the other owners of BRI and the Province of Ontario, agreed to revise the ownership structure of BRI. The new BRI shareholder agreement (“New Shareholder Agreement”) incorporating these changes became effective at the beginning of 2016, at which time BRI converted all existing capital stock into a new share class, as well as created a separate share class to facilitate new and existing brewer participation and governance. While governance and board of director participation continues to have the ability to fluctuate based on market share relative to the other owners, our equity interest has become fixed under the New Shareholder Agreement. We have evaluated the changes within the New Shareholder Agreement from a primary beneficiary perspective and concluded that we will continue to account for BRI as an equity method investment as control of BRI continues to be shared under the New Shareholder Agreement.

Investment in MillerCoors
As discussed in Note 16, "Pending Acquisition", on November 11, 2015, we entered into a purchase agreement to acquire all of SABMiller’s 58% economic interest and 50% voting interest in MillerCoors and all trademarks, contracts and other assets primarily related to the Miller brand portfolio outside of the U.S. and Puerto Rico as described in the Purchase Agreement (the

10


"Acquisition"). Following the closing of the pending Acquisition, the Company will own 100% of the outstanding equity and voting interests of MillerCoors. See further details regarding the pending Acquisition in Note 16, "Pending Acquisition".

5. Share-Based Payments
We continue to have only one incentive compensation plan, the MCBC Incentive Compensation Plan (the "Incentive Compensation Plan"), as of March 31, 2016, and all outstanding awards fall under the Incentive Compensation Plan. During the three months ended March 31, 2016, and March 31, 2015, we recognized share-based compensation expense related to the following Class B common stock awards to certain directors, officers and other eligible employees, pursuant to the Incentive Compensation Plan: restricted stock units ("RSUs"), deferred stock units ("DSUs"), performance share units ("PSUs") and stock options. Additionally, we recognized share-based compensation expense related to performance units ("PUs") during the three months ended March 31, 2015. These awards fully vested in the first quarter of 2015 and no further PU's have since been issued. The settlement amount of the PSUs is determined based on market and performance metrics, which include our total shareholder return performance relative to the S&P 500 and specified internal performance metrics designed to drive greater shareholder return. PSU compensation expense is based on a fair value assigned to the market metric using a Monte Carlo

12


model, which will remain constant throughout the vesting period of three years, and a performance multiplier, which will vary due to changing estimates of the performance metric condition.
The following table summarizes share-based compensation expense and includes share-based compensation related to pre-existing MCBC equity awards held by former MCBC employees that have transferred to MillerCoors:

The increase in expense in the first quarter of 2016 was primarily driven by performance metrics increasing the fair value of our PSUs.
As of March 31, 2016, there was $48.0 million of total unrecognized compensation expense from all share-based compensation arrangements granted under the Incentive Compensation Plan, related to unvested awards. This compensation expense is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 2.2 years.

The fair value of each option granted in the first quarter of 2016 and 2015 was determined on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the following weighted-average assumptions:

The risk-free interest rates utilized for periods throughout the contractual life of the stock options are based on a zero-coupon U.S. Treasury security yield at the time of grant. Expected volatility is based on a combination of historical and implied volatility of our stock. The expected term of stock options is estimated based upon observations of historical employee option exercise patterns and trends of those employees granted options in the respective year.
The fair value of the market metric for each PSU granted in the first quarter of 2016 and 2015 was determined on the date of grant using a Monte Carlo model to simulate total shareholder return for MCBC and peer companies with the following weighted-average assumptions:

The risk-free interest rates utilized for periods throughout the expected term of the PSUs are based on a zero-coupon U.S. Treasury security yield at the time of grant. Expected volatility is based on historical volatility of our stock as well as the stock of our peer firms, as shown within the volatility range above, for a period from the grant date consistent with the expected term. The expected term of PSUs is calculated based on the grant date to the end of the performance period.
As of March 31, 2016, there were 6.5 million shares of the Company's Class B common stock available for issuance as awards under the Incentive Compensation Plan.

As a result of the ongoing strategic review of our Canadian supply chain network, in October 2015, we entered into an agreement to sell our Vancouver brewery for CAD 185.0 million, with the intent to use the proceeds from the sale to help fund the construction of an efficient and flexible brewery in British Columbia. The sale was fully completed on March 31, 2016, resulting in a $110.4 million gain, which was recorded as a special item in the first quarter. The net cash proceeds, which remained in trust following the completion of the sale, were received on April 1, 2016. Accordingly, other receivables, net on the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2016, includes CAD 183.1 million ($140.8 million) of net proceeds from the sale of the brewery. This amount represents a non-cash investing activity on the unaudited condensed consolidated statement of cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2016.
Further, in conjunction with the sale, we agreed to leaseback the existing property to continue operations on an uninterrupted basis, while the new brewery is being constructed, for a cost of approximately CAD 5 million per annum. During the first quarter of 2016, we also incurred accelerated depreciation charges in excess of normal depreciation of $1.1 million related to equipment that continues to be owned by the Company and utilized during the leaseback period to support ongoing operations. We currently plan to dispose of this equipment following the brewery closure. We expect to incur additional special charges, including estimated accelerated depreciation charges of approximately CAD 18 million, through final closure of the brewery, which is currently anticipated to occur at the end of 2018.
We have evaluated this transaction pursuant to the accounting guidance for sale-leaseback transactions, and concluded that the relevant criteria had been met for full gain recognition.
(2)
As part of our continued strategic review of our European supply chain network, in the first quarter of 2016 we incurred $2.3 million of charges associated with the closure of our Burton South, Plovdiv and Alton breweries, of which $1.9 million represents accelerated depreciation charges in excess of our normal depreciation. During the first quarter of 2015, we incurred $11.8 million of accelerated depreciation in excess of our normal depreciation associated with the Alton brewery.
We expect to incur additional future accelerated depreciation in excess of our normal depreciation of approximately GBP 8 million related to the Burton South brewery through the third quarter of 2017. We do not expect to incur future accelerated depreciation on the Alton and Plovdiv breweries. We may recognize other charges or benefits related to these brewery closures, which cannot currently be estimated and will be recorded within special items.
Restructuring Activities
We have continued our ongoing assessment of our supply chain strategies across our segments in order to align with our cost saving objectives. As part of this strategic review, which began in 2014, we have started closing certain breweries including the Alton and Plovdiv breweries and the planned closures of the Vancouver and Burton South breweries. As a result of these restructuring activities, we have reduced employment levels by approximately 369 employees, of which approximately 297 and 72 relate to 2015 and 2014 restructuring programs, respectively. Consequently, we recognized severance and other employee related charges, which we have recorded as special items within our unaudited condensed consolidated statements of

15


operations. We will continue to evaluate our supply chain network and seek opportunities for further efficiencies and cost savings, and we therefore may incur additional restructuring related charges in the future.
The accrued restructuring balances represent expected future cash payments required to satisfy the remaining severance obligations to terminated employees, the majority of which we expect to be paid in the next 12 to 33 months.

During the first quarter of 2016, we recognized amortization of commitment fees and other financing costs incurred in connection with our bridge loan agreement entered into subsequent to the announcement of the pending Acquisition of MillerCoors. See Note 16, "Pending Acquisition" for further discussion.

8. Income Tax
Our effective tax rates for the first quarter of 2016 and 2015 were approximately 11% and 14%, respectively. Our effective tax rates were significantly lower than the federal statutory rate of 35% primarily due to lower effective income tax rates applicable to our foreign businesses, driven by lower statutory income tax rates and tax planning impacts on statutory taxable income, as well as the impact of discrete items. The decrease in the effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2016 versus the first quarter of 2015 is primarily driven by tax benefits recognized from transaction-related costs resulting from the pending Acquisition, as well as favorable tax treatment associated with the sale of the Vancouver brewery. This decrease is partially offset by lower net discrete tax benefits recognized in 2016 versus 2015. Specifically, our total net discrete tax benefit was $1.8 million in the first quarter of 2016, versus a $4.5 million net discrete tax benefit recognized in the first quarter of 2015.
Our tax rate is volatile and may move up or down with changes in, among other things, the amount and source of income or loss, our ability to utilize foreign tax credits, changes in tax laws and the movement of liabilities established for uncertain tax positions as statutes of limitations expire or positions are otherwise effectively settled. There are proposed or pending tax law changes in various jurisdictions that, if enacted, may have an impact on our effective tax rate.

9. Earnings Per Share ("EPS")
Basic EPS was computed using the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted EPS includes the additional dilutive effect of our potentially dilutive securities, which include RSUs, DSUs, PUs, PSUs, stock options and SOSARs. The dilutive effects of our potentially dilutive securities are calculated using the treasury stock method. The following summarizes the effect of dilutive securities on diluted EPS:

For the three months ended March 31, 2016, and March 31, 2015, no anti-dilutive securities were excluded from the computation of the effect of dilutive securities on diluted EPS.
Class B Common Stock Equity Issuance
On February 3, 2016, we completed an underwritten public offering of our Class B common stock, which increased the number of Class B common shares issued and outstanding by 29.9 million shares. See Note 16, "Pending Acquisition" for further details.
Share Repurchase Program
In February 2015, we announced that our board of directors approved and authorized a new program to repurchase up to $1.0 billion of our Class A and Class B common stock. During the last three quarters of 2015, we purchased approximately 2 million shares of our Class B common stock under three separate share repurchase agreements (“ASRs”) for an aggregate of approximately $150 million. We reflected each ASR as a repurchase of common stock in the period delivered for purposes of calculating earnings per share and as forward contracts indexed to our own common stock. Each ASR met all of the applicable criteria for equity classification, and therefore, was not accounted for as a derivative instrument. As a result of the pending Acquisition, we have suspended the share repurchase program and thus, there have been no common shares repurchased in 2016.

The changes in the gross carrying amounts of intangibles from December 31, 2015, to March 31, 2016, are primarily driven by the impact of foreign exchange rates, as a significant amount of intangibles are denominated in foreign currencies.

Amortization expense of intangible assets was $9.6 million and $7.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016, and March 31, 2015, respectively, and is presented within marketing, general and administrative expenses on the unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations.
We completed our required annual goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible impairment testing as of October 1, 2015, the first day of our fourth quarter, and concluded there were no impairments of goodwill within our Europe, Canada or India reporting units or impairments of our indefinite-lived intangible assets.
Reporting Units and Goodwill
The operations in each of the specific regions within our Canada, Europe and MCI segments are considered components based on the availability of discrete financial information and the regular review by segment management. We have concluded that the components within the Canada and Europe segments each meet the criteria as having similar economic characteristics and therefore have aggregated these components into the Canada and Europe reporting units, respectively. Additionally, we determined that the components within our MCI segment do not meet the criteria for aggregation, and therefore, the operations of our India business constitute a separate reporting unit at the component level.
Our 2015 annual goodwill impairment testing determined our Europe and Canada reporting units to be at risk of failing step one of the goodwill impairment test. Specifically, the fair value of the Europe and Canada reporting units were estimated at approximately 9% and 20% in excess of carrying value, respectively, as of the October 1, 2015, testing date. The fair value of the India reporting unit was deemed to approximate the carrying value of the reporting unit due to purchase price accounting performed as of April 1, 2015, for the Mount Shivalik acquisition, which comprises the majority of the India reporting unit.
Indefinite-Lived Intangibles
Our Molson core brand intangible asset continues to be at risk of future impairment with a fair value estimated at approximately 3% in excess of its carrying value as of the impairment testing date of October 1, 2015. The fair value of the Molson core brands continues to face significant competitive pressures and challenging macroeconomic conditions in the Canada market. These challenges continue to be offset by anticipated cost savings initiatives and supply chain optimization, including the monetization and optimization of our Vancouver brewery location. As of March 31, 2016, the Molson core brand intangible had a carrying value of $2,334.6 million. The value of our other indefinite-lived intangibles continued to be sufficiently in excess of their carrying values as of the October 1, 2015, testing date.

We utilized Level 3 fair value measurements in our impairment analysis of our indefinite-lived intangible assets, which utilizes an excess earnings approach to determine the fair values of the assets as of the testing date. The future cash flows used in the analysis are based on internal cash flow projections based on our long range plans and include significant assumptions by management as noted below.

Key Assumptions
The Europe reporting unit goodwill and the Molson core brand intangible asset are at risk of future impairment in the event of significant unfavorable changes in the forecasted cash flows (including prolonged, or further weakening of, adverse economic conditions or significant unfavorable changes in tax, environmental or other regulations, including interpretations thereof), terminal growth rates, market multiples and/or weighted-average cost of capital utilized in the discounted cash flow analyses. For testing purposes, management's best estimates of the expected future results are the primary driver in determining the fair value. Current projections used for our Europe reporting unit testing reflect continued challenging environments in the future followed by growth resulting from a longer term recovery of the macroeconomic environment, as well as the benefit of anticipated cost savings and specific brand-building and innovation activities. Our Molson core brand projections also reflect a continued challenging environment that has been adversely impacted by a weak economy across all industries, as well as

19


weakened consumer demand driven by increased competitive pressures, partially offset by anticipated cost savings and specific brand-building and innovation activities. Fair value determinations require considerable judgment and are sensitive to changes in underlying assumptions and factors. As a result, there can be no assurance that the estimates and assumptions made for purposes of the annual goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible impairment tests will prove to be an accurate prediction of the future. Examples of events or circumstances that could reasonably be expected to negatively affect the underlying key assumptions and ultimately impact the estimated fair value of our reporting units and indefinite-lived intangibles may include such items as: (i) a decrease in expected future cash flows, specifically, a decrease in sales volume and increase in costs that could significantly impact our immediate and long-range results, a decrease in sales volume driven by a prolonged weakness in consumer demand or other competitive pressures adversely affecting our long-term volume trends, a continuation of the trend away from core brands in certain of our markets, especially in markets where our core brands represent a significant portion of the market, unfavorable working capital changes and an inability to successfully achieve our cost savings targets, (ii) adverse changes in macroeconomic conditions or an economic recovery that significantly differs from our assumptions in timing and/or degree (such as a recession or worsening of the overall European economy), (iii) volatility in the equity and debt markets or other country specific factors which could result in a higher weighted-average cost of capital, (iv) sensitivity to market multiples; and (v) regulation limiting or banning the manufacturing, distribution or sale of alcoholic beverages.
Based on known facts and circumstances, we evaluate and consider other recent events and uncertain items, as well as related potential implications, as part of our annual assessment and incorporate into the analyses as appropriate. These facts and circumstances are subject to change and may impact future analyses.
While historical performance and current expectations have resulted in fair values of our reporting units in excess of carrying values, if our assumptions are not realized, it is possible that an impairment charge may need to be recorded in the future.
Definite-Lived Intangibles
Regarding definite-lived intangibles, we continuously monitor the performance of the underlying asset for potential triggering events suggesting an impairment review should be performed. No such triggering events were identified in the first quarter of 2016.
Subsequent Events
In the fourth quarter of 2015, a newly elected government in the state of Bihar, India announced plans to ban the sale of "country" liquor and limit the sale of other forms of alcohol, such as beer, to certain government owned outlets, effective beginning April 1, 2016. On April 5, 2016, four days after the start of the ban on "country" liquor, the government of the state of Bihar announced immediate changes to the ban, implementing a complete prohibition of the sale and consumption of all forms of alcohol. The prohibition only impacts our operations in the state of Bihar, while our other operations in India, including our Mount Shivalik operations, are not impacted. The expected length of the prohibition is currently unclear and we are assessing options to mitigate the adverse impact of the prohibition, such as exporting to other states, potential alternative business operations and seeking legal remediation. Based on foreign exchange rates as of March 31, 2016, asset classes at risk for future impairment include goodwill of $22.5 million for the India reporting unit, only a portion of which is associated with cash flows in Bihar; properties, net of accumulated depreciation, of $13.9 million; certain current assets of $9.1 million; and intangible assets of $1.1 million.

During the fourth quarter of 2015, we settled our interest rate swaps that were in fair value hedge accounting relationships related to these notes at which time we ceased adjusting the carrying value of the related notes for the fair value movements of these swaps and began amortizing the cumulative adjustments to interest expense over the remaining term of the respective note. At the time of settlement, cumulative adjustments to the carrying value of the notes were $0.7 million and $18.1 million related to the $300 million and $500 million notes, respectively. See Note 12 of the Notes included in our Annual Report for additional detail.

As of March 31, 2016, we had $38.8 million in bank overdrafts and $48.4 million in bank cash related to our cross-border, cross-currency cash pool for a net positive position of $9.6 million. As of December 31, 2015, we had $18.7 million in bank overdrafts and $39.6 million in bank cash related to our cross-border, cross-currency cash pool for a net positive position of $20.9 million.
(3)
We had total outstanding borrowings of $10.7 million and $7.5 million under our two JPY overdraft facilities as of March 31, 2016, and December 31, 2015, respectively. In addition, we have GBP and CAD lines of credit under which we had no borrowings as of March 31, 2016, or December 31, 2015.
Debt Fair Value Measurements
We utilize market approaches to estimate the fair value of certain outstanding borrowings by discounting anticipated future cash flows derived from the contractual terms of the obligations and observable market interest and foreign exchange rates. As of March 31, 2016, and December 31, 2015, the fair value of our outstanding long-term debt (including current portion) was $3,079.3 million and $2,883.4 million, respectively. All senior notes are valued based on significant observable inputs and classified as Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy. The carrying values of all other outstanding long-term borrowings and our short-term borrowings approximate their fair values and are also classified as Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy.
Financing of Pending Acquisition
In connection with the pending Acquisition announced during the fourth quarter of 2015, we entered into a 364-day bridge loan agreement by and among the Company, the lenders party thereto, and Citibank, N.A., as Administrative Agent. The bridge loan agreement provides for a 364-day bridge loan facility of up to $9.3 billion which has been subsequently reduced to $6.8 billion by the net proceeds received from our equity offering in the first quarter of 2016. In connection with the bridge

21


loan, during the first quarter of 2016 and fourth quarter of 2015, we paid commitment fees of $13.5 million and $49.2 million, respectively, which have been deferred within other current assets as of March 31, 2016, and December 31, 2015, and are being amortized to other income (expense) over the 364-day term. Additionally, on December 16, 2015, we also entered into a term loan agreement by and among the Company, the lenders party thereto, and Citibank, N.A., as Administrative Agent. The term loan agreement provides for total term loan commitments of $1.5 billion in a 3-year tranche and $1.5 billion in a 5-year tranche, for an aggregate principal amount of $3.0 billion. In connection with the term loan, during the year ended December 31, 2015, we paid issuance fees of $8.3 million, which have been deferred within other assets as of March 31, 2016, and December 31, 2015, and are being amortized to interest expense over the respective 3-year and 5-year term of each loan. Additionally, during the first quarter of 2016 we paid other costs associated with the bridge loan and term loan of $5.7 million. For the three months ended March 31, 2016, $1.8 million was recorded to interest expense related to amortization of issuance costs as well as other financing costs associated with the term loan. For the three months ended March 31, 2016, $18.4 million was recorded to other income (expense) related to amortization of commitment fees as well as other financing costs associated with the bridge loan. As of March 31, 2016, and December 31, 2015, there were no outstanding borrowings on the bridge loan or the term loan. The unamortized deferred balance will be reclassified as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of the debt once we have borrowed under the term loan. See Note 16, "Pending Acquisition" for further details regarding the pending Acquisition.
Other
As of March 31, 2016, and December 31, 2015, we had $750 million available to draw under our $750 million revolving multi-currency credit facility, as there were no outstanding borrowings on the revolving credit facility nor was there any outstanding commercial paper. As part of our anticipated financing for the pending Acquisition, we amended our $750 million revolving multi-currency credit facility during the fourth quarter of 2015 to increase the maximum leverage ratio to 5.75x debt to EBITDA effective following the completion of the pending Acquisition, with a decline to 3.75x debt to EBITDA in the fourth year following the closing of the pending Acquisition.
Under the terms of each of our debt facilities, we must comply with certain restrictions. These include restrictions on priority indebtedness (certain threshold percentages of secured consolidated net tangible assets), leverage thresholds, liens, and restrictions on certain types of sale lease-back transactions and transfers of assets. As of March 31, 2016, and December 31, 2015, we were in compliance with all of these restrictions and have met all debt payment obligations.

13. Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities
Our risk management and derivative accounting policies are presented in Notes 1 and 16 of the Notes included in our Annual Report and did not significantly change during the first quarter of 2016. As noted in Note 16 of the Notes included in our Annual Report, due to the nature of our counterparty agreements, and the fact that we are not subject to master netting arrangements, we are not able to net positions with the same counterparty and, therefore, present our derivative positions on a gross basis in our unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets. Except as noted below, our significant derivative positions have not changed considerably since year-end.
Swaptions
During the first quarter of 2016, we entered into swaption agreements with a total notional amount of $855.0 million to economically hedge a portion of our anticipated permanent long-term debt issuance with which we expect to partially fund the pending Acquisition. We paid upfront premiums of $37.8 million for the option to enter into and exercise swaps with a forward starting effective date. These swaptions are not designated in hedge accounting relationships as the hedges were entered into in association with the pending Acquisition and, accordingly, all mark-to-market fair value adjustments are reflected within interest expense. We intend to terminate and settle these swaptions upon maturity or immediately prior to the completion of the associated pending debt issuance in the event that occurs prior to maturity.

Derivative Fair Value Measurements
We utilize market approaches to estimate the fair value of our derivative instruments by discounting anticipated future cash flows derived from the derivative's contractual terms and observable market interest, foreign exchange and commodity rates. The fair values of our derivatives also include credit risk adjustments to account for our counterparties' credit risk, as well as our own non-performance risk. The table below summarizes our derivative assets and liabilities that were measured at fair value as of March 31, 2016, and December 31, 2015.

We expect net gains of approximately $12 million (pretax) recorded in AOCI at March 31, 2016, will be reclassified into earnings within the next 12 months. For derivatives designated in cash flow hedge relationships, the maximum length of time over which forecasted transactions are hedged at March 31, 2016, is three years.
