Financial report summary

?
Risks
  • Our results of operations have been adversely affected and could be materially adversely affected in the future by the recent COVID-19 global pandemic.
  • The Combination is subject to customary closing conditions, including conditions related to required shareholder approvals and required regulatory approvals, and may not be completed on a timely basis, or at all, or may be completed on a basis that has a material impact on the value of the combined company.
  • Failure to close the Combination could negatively impact our share price and future business and financial results.
  • While the Combination is pending, we will be subject to business uncertainties related to our relationships with employees, clients and suppliers, which could adversely affect our business and operations. These uncertainties could also adversely affect the combined company following the Combination.
  • While the Combination is pending, we will be subject to contractual restrictions, which could adversely affect our respective business and operations.
  • Aon and WTW may be unable to successfully integrate their operations. Failure to successfully integrate our and WTW’s businesses in the expected time frame may adversely affect the future results of the combined company.
  • We and WTW have incurred and will incur substantial transaction fees and costs in connection with the Combination.
Management Discussion
  • Aon is a leading global professional services firm providing a broad range of risk, retirement, and health solutions underpinned by proprietary data and analytics. Management continues to lead its set of initiatives designed to strengthen Aon and unite the firm with one portfolio of capability enabled by proprietary data and analytics and one operating model to deliver additional insight, connectivity, and efficiency.
  • In the first quarter of 2019, Aon adopted new accounting guidance related to the treatment of leases that was applied using the modified retrospective approach. Under this approach, prior periods were not restated. Refer to Note 2 “Summary of Significant Accounting Principles and Practices” of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements in Part II, Item 8 of this report for further information surrounding the quantitative and qualitative impacts of adopting the new accounting guidance.
  • In October 2019, we announced the proposed Reorganization, which would result in an Irish public limited company serving as our new publicly traded parent company by means of a scheme of arrangement under English law. The Reorganization would effectively change the jurisdiction of incorporation of the publicly traded parent company of Aon from the U.K. to Ireland.
