(a)Pension expense was higher under IFRS than U.S. GAAP due to
the different discount rates used for calculating the present
value of pension obligations and the estimated return on pension
plan assets.

(b)Under IFRS, Acushnets 7.5% convertible notes due 2021 (the
Convertible Notes) were required to be bifurcated into a debt
component and a separate conversion feature component. At
issuance of the Convertible Notes, the debt component was
recorded at a discount (OID) and as a result the amount of the
liability related to the debt component under IFRS was lower than
the amount of the liability under U.S. GAAP. The fair value of
the conversion feature was recorded as a separate liability, as
discussed in footnote (c)below.

The OID on the Convertible Notes was amortized and included in
interest expense over the term of the Convertible Notes.

All of the Convertible Notes automatically converted into common
stock prior to the closing of Acushnets initial public offering
and such Convertible Notes are no longer outstanding.

(c)Under IFRS, the conversion feature in the Convertible Notes
was classified as a derivative and re-measured to fair value at
each reporting date, with any changes in such fair value
impacting net income (loss) attributable to Acushnet Holdings
Corp. In addition, the fair value of the conversion feature in
the Convertible Notes was treated as a liability and increased
the Companys total liabilities under IFRS.

Under U.S. GAAP, the conversion feature in the Convertible Notes
was not classified as a derivative and was not re-measured to
fair value at each reporting date.

(d)The OID on the 7.5% bonds due 2021 (the 7.5% Bonds) was
calculated differently under U.S. GAAP and IFRS, resulting in a
difference in OID amortization expense.

In July 2016, Fila Korea exercised all of Acushnets outstanding
common stock warrants and Acushnet used the proceeds from such
exercise to redeem all of the outstanding 7.5% Bonds.

(e)Under U.S. GAAP, the SeriesA redeemable convertible
preferred stock (the Convertible Preferred Stock) was
classified as equity. Under IFRS, the Convertible Preferred
Stock was classified as a financial liability. Accordingly,
dividends declared on the Convertible Preferred Stock were
treated as an adjustment to retained earnings under U.S. GAAP
and interest expense under IFRS.

All of the Convertible Preferred Stock automatically converted
into common stock prior to the closing of Acushnets initial
public offering and such Convertible Preferred Stock is no
longer outstanding.

(f)Under U.S. GAAP, the Convertible Preferred Stock was
classified as equity. Under IFRS, the preferred stock was
classified as a financial liability. Accordingly, the
Convertible Preferred Stock was re-measured to fair value at
each reporting date under IFRS and changes in the fair value of
the Convertible Preferred Stock impacted net income (loss)
attributable to Acushnet Holdings Corp. The classification of
the Convertible Preferred Stock as a liability resulted in
higher total liabilities under IFRS.
