Transcript Notes to Financial Statements (1) BASIS OF CONSOLIDATION The consolidated statements include all divisions, its majority- owned and wholly-owned subsidiaries of Hilton Hotels Corporation (the Company); a majority interest of the Company in an affiliated partnership and a one-half undivided interest in a hotel under construction with the exception that the subsidiary, Hilton Hotels International, Inc. (International) excludes from its consolidation certain foreign divisions and subsidiaries due either to currency restrictions or anticipated difficulty in transferring funds. These latter operations are carried as investments and income therefrom is included in consolidation when received in freely transferable funds. Investments in and advances to nonconsolidated foreign divisions and subsidiaries of International at December 31, 1963 aggregated $927,306; whereas that Company's equity in the net assets of such divisions and subsidiaries was $1,737,305. (2) INVESTMENTS Notes received in connection with sales of various properties since 1952 were secured by either first, second or real estate leasehold mortgages. These notes require various periodic payments and their maturities range from January 5, 1965 to July 1, 1976. Required payments receivable for the next five years (excluding payments on a $2,615,128.29 note in connection with a San Antonio hotel which was sold by the Company in 1960 on an installment basis and reacquired subsequent to the balance sheet date at which time the note was cancelled) approximate $188,146, 1964; $294,993, 1965; $1,526,648, 1966; $22,846, 1967; and $24,015, 1968. The profit on those sales that qualify as installment sales under Treasury regulations has been deferred and there will be taken into income that portion of the profits as applies to payments on the installment sales contracts in the year in which such payments are received. At December 31, 1963 $2,315,914 of such profit was deferred and included $1,069,735 in connection with the reacquired hotel (see above). Accordingly, during subsequent years as payments are received there will be included in income (taxable at the then effective long-term capital gains rate) the following: $107,041, 1964; $189,341, 1965; and, $949,797, 1966. Investments and advances of the Company and its wholly- owned subsidiary, Hilton Hotels International, Inc., in 50% owned companies aggregated $11,596,826, while the underlying equity in these investments and advances amounted to $10,856,312. (3) FIXED ASSETS A major portion of these assets are pledged to secure mortgages or other long-term debt of the consolidated companies. Fixed assets were carried at cost or were carried over from predecessor companies together with related depreciation reserves at predecessors' basis. Additions to such assets were carried at cost. Depreciation of fixed assets has been computed on the basis of the straight-line method for accounting purposes. For income tax purposes, the Company has elected to compute depreciation on the double declining balance method for a newly opened property and sum-of-the-digits method with respect to certain additions to fixed assets. Accordingly, the Company has included in the provision for income taxes and in the balance sheet an amount equal to the Federal income tax benefit from the use of these methods of accelerated depreciation. In September 1963 Hilton Inns, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary, entered into a contract, subject to certain conditions subsequent, involving the sale of the buildings, furniture and equipment, and leasehold estate of the Hilton Inn, Aurora, Illinois, at a price which is approximately $2,510,000 less than the cost basis to Hilton Inns, Inc. Pending the consummation of the sale, Hilton Inns, Inc. will continue to operate the Inn. Accordingly, a reserve was established for the carrying value of this property in the aforementioned amount which is reflected as a charge in consolidated earned surplus. (4) EXCESS COST OF SUBSIDIARY OVER TANGIBLE ASSETS AT ACQUISITION The cost to the Company in excess of the book value of the acquired shares of Hilton Credit Corporation in the original amount of $3,340,501 is being amortized by the Company on a basis equivalent to the income tax benefit resulting from carry forward of prior years' operating losses of the subsidiary. For 1963, the amount of such amortization charged against consolidated income was $446,894. (5) FEDERAL TAXES ON INCOME Federal income tax returns of the Company subsequent to 1957 and returns of subsidiaries and predecessor companies for 1954 and subsequent years are either under or subject to examination by the Internal Revenue Service. (6) LONG-TERM DEBT A trust indenture securing the 4M>% fifteen-year convertible debentures of the Company (conversion privileges expired January 2, 1958), maturing January 1, 1970 requires annual sinking fund payments on January 15th of each year in an amount sufficient to redeem at the principal amount without premium, 3% for each of the years through 1962 and 4% for each of the years thereafter. The Company has complied with this provision. The Company's 6% subordinated debentures maturing October 15, 1984 are entitled to the benefit of an annual sinking fund payment commencing October 15, 1965. The Company is obligated to pay into the sinking fund on or before October 15th in each year from 1965 to 1969 a sum equal to 2% of the largest principal amount of debentures outstanding on or prior to August 31, 1965, and thereafter annually, an amount equal to 1/15th of the principal amount of debentures outstanding on October 15, 1969 after giving effect to redemptions out of the sinking fund payment made for that date. The 4% twenty-five year sinking fund debentures maturing July 1, 1983 are entitled to the benefits of an annual sinking fund payment beginning July 1, 1962, in an amount sufficient to redeem, at their principal amount, without premium, 2% of the highest principal amount at any time outstanding. The Company has complied with this provision. The annual sinking fund and maturity requirements on total long-term debt for each of the next five years ending December 31, follows: 1964, $8,218,160; 1965, $23,496,068; 1966, $3,810,700; 1967, $3,877,003; and 1968, $4,018,938. (T) CAPITAL STOCK 450,000 shares of common stock of the Company have been reserved for the exercise of warrants which were originally attached to the $30,000,000 issue in 1959 of 6% subordinated sinking fund debentures of the Company. Each $1,000 debenture unit carried a warrant to purchase 15 shares of common stock. The warrants provide that this stock may be purchased at $42 per share until October 15, 1963; $46 per share thereafter to October 15, 1967; and, $50 per share thereafter to October 15, 1971, the expiration date of the warrants. (8) COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENT LIABILITIES The Company has commitments with a balance of approximately $5,775,300 in connection with hotel construction, repairs and maintenance, and major revisions and alterations of its properties. 20
