Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm


The Benefits Committee
Costco 401(k) Retirement Plan:

Opinion on the Financial Statements
We have audited the accompanying statements of net assets available for benefits of the Costco 401(k) Retirement Plan (the Plan) as of December 31, 2017 and 2016, the related statement of changes in net assets available for benefits for the year ended December 31, 2017, and the related notes (collectively, the financial statements). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the net assets available for benefits of the Plan as of December 31, 2017 and 2016, and the changes in net assets available for benefits for the year ended December 31, 2017, in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.
Basis for Opinion
These financial statements are the responsibility of the Plan’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (PCAOB) and are required to be independent with respect to the Plan in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
Accompanying Supplemental Information
The supplemental information in the accompanying schedule of assets (held at end of year) as of December 31, 2017 has been subjected to audit procedures performed in conjunction with the audit of the Plan’s financial statements. The supplemental information is the responsibility of the Plan’s management. Our audit procedures included determining whether the supplemental information reconciles to the financial statements or the underlying accounting and other records, as applicable, and performing procedures to test the completeness and accuracy of the information presented in the supplemental information. In forming our opinion on the supplemental information, we evaluated whether the supplemental information, including its form and content, is presented in conformity with the Department of Labor’s Rules and Regulations for Reporting and Disclosure under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. In our opinion, the supplemental information is fairly stated, in all material respects, in relation to the financial statements as a whole.

COSTCO 401(k) RETIREMENT PLAN
Notes to Financial Statements
December 31, 2017 and 2016

(1)
Plan Description

The following description of the Costco 401(k) Retirement Plan (the Plan) provides only general information. Participants should refer to the Plan document for a more complete description of the Plan’s provisions. To participate in the Plan, an individual must be an employee of Costco Wholesale Corporation (the Company or Costco) and certain subsidiaries.
The Plan is a defined contribution plan for the benefit of eligible employees, established by the Company under Section 401(a) of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC). It includes a qualified cash or deferred arrangement as described in Section 401(k) of the IRC. The Plan is subject to the provisions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), as amended.
(a)
Employee Contributions

The Plan allows certain employees at least 18 years of age to make salary deferral contributions after completing 90 days of service within 12-consecutive months. Eligible employees may contribute from 1% to 50% of their compensation, subject to certain limitations set by the IRC and the Plan. Eligible employees may also contribute amounts representing certain distributions from other retirement plans (known as rollover contributions).
All newly-eligible employees are automatically enrolled in the Plan at a salary deferral contribution rate of 3% unless the employee elects otherwise. The percentage deferred into the Plan automatically increases by one percentage point each year, to a maximum automatic deferral of 20%. Employees may choose to opt out of this automatic deferral increase.
(b)
Employer Contributions

All Company contributions are invested in accordance with investment selections made by participants. If no selection has been made, the contribution defaults to the Retirement Trust Fund corresponding to the participant's age. Employer contributions are allocated based on an employee’s work classification as either: 1) covered by the collective bargaining agreements with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters; or 2) other eligible employment.
(1)
Covered by the Teamster Agreements
The Company matches 50% of each employee’s contribution up to a maximum of $250 per year. In addition, eligible employees at least 18 years of age who have completed a year of service (12 consecutive months in which the employee worked at least 1,000 hours) are eligible for an annual discretionary employer contribution. Plan entry dates for the discretionary contribution occur on January 1 and July 1. The discretionary contribution is allocated only to the accounts of all eligible Plan participants who are employed on the last day of the applicable Plan year. The allocation rate varies, based on years of service, ranging from $0.05 to $0.47 per straight-time hour worked during the Plan year up to a maximum of 2,080 hours. These contributions totaled $6.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2017.
(2)
Other eligible employment (not covered by the Teamsters Agreements)
The Company matches 50% of each employee’s contribution up to a maximum of $500 per year. In addition, eligible employees at least 18 years of age who have completed a year of service (12 consecutive months in which the employee worked at least 1,000 hours) are eligible for an annual discretionary employer contribution. Plan entry dates for the discretionary contribution occur on January 1 and July 1. The discretionary contribution is allocated only to the accounts of eligible Plan participants who are employed on the last day of the applicable Plan year. The allocation rate varies,

Notes to Financial Statements (Continued)
December 31, 2017 and 2016


based on years of service, ranging from 3% to 9% of the participant's compensation. These contributions totaled $321.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2017.
(c)
Participants’ Accounts

Each participant’s account is credited or debited with the participant’s contributions, the Company’s contributions, earnings, fees, expenses and increases and decreases in underlying account assets. The benefit to which a participant is entitled is the participant’s vested account balance.
(d)
Vesting

Participants are immediately vested in their deferral contributions and in certain other contributions as defined in the Plan document adjusted for investment experience, fees and expenses. Vesting in any form of employer contribution is based on the following schedule:
Years of service
 
Percentage vested
Under 2 years
 
 
0%
2 years
 
 
20%
3 years
 
 
40%
4 years
 
 
60%
5 years
 
 
100%
(e)
Forfeitures

If a participant terminates employment, the non-vested portion of the account balance is forfeited. Forfeited amounts are used to reduce future employer contributions or to pay administrative expenses. These were immaterial during the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016. There were no unallocated forfeitures as of December 31, 2017 and 2016, after application to reduce the employer discretionary contributions. Forfeitures are restored to a participant’s account if, within five years, the participant is re-hired by the Company and repays the full amount of the vested account balance distributed upon termination.
(f)
Investment Options

Participants may direct their account by investing in any of the Plan's available options. Participants may transfer amounts between investment options on business days that the NYSE is open, subject to certain trading restrictions. Before 2016, participants could invest 100% of their account in Costco stock; starting January 2016, the Plan has a 50% limit on investment in Costco stock, applied prospectively.
Amounts may be temporarily invested in a cash account prior to investment in the Plan’s investment accounts. See Note 2, 3 and 4 for additional information regarding the Plan's investments.
(g)
Distributions

Upon termination of employment, total disability, reaching age 59-1/2 or death, a participant (or participant's beneficiary in the case of death) can request a full, partial or, in certain circumstances, installment or rollover distribution for the vested portion of the account. Participants are also eligible to withdraw a portion of the salary deferral contribution account in the event of certain financial hardships.
Dividends on the Company’s stock are reinvested in the participant’s Company stock account unless a distribution is requested by the participant. Dividends on the Company’s stock are reported on a gross basis, with total dividends reported as “Dividends” and the amounts distributed reported as “Distributions to participants” in the statement of changes in net assets available for benefits. On April 25, 2017, the

Notes to Financial Statements (Continued)
December 31, 2017 and 2016


Company declared a special cash dividend of $7 per share, which was paid on May 26, 2017. Of the $210.2 million special dividend paid to Plan participants, $134.9 million was distributed to the participants and the remaining $75.3 million was reinvested.
(h)
Notes Receivable from Participants

A participant may borrow between $1,000 up to the lesser of $50,000 or 45% of their vested account balance. Loans are repaid through payroll deductions over a period ranging up to four years or, if for the purchase of a principal residence, up to 15 years. The interest rate is determined by the Plan Administrator from time-to-time and is similar to comparable rates charged by commercial lenders. At December 31, 2017, interest rates on loans outstanding ranged from 4.25% to 11.50%, with various maturities through December 2032. Participant accounts with loans are charged an application fee at initiation and an annual maintenance fee.
(i)
Trustee and Plan Administrator

T. Rowe Price Trust Company is the trustee and recordkeeper for the Plan, and the Costco Benefits Committee is the Plan Administrator.
(j)
Administrative and Investment Expenses

Certain administrative expenses, including investment management and transactions fees, are paid by the Plan. All other administrative expenses are paid by the Company.

(2)
Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

(a)
Basis of Accounting

The financial statements of the Plan are prepared under the accrual method of accounting. As required under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP), fully benefit-responsive investment contracts are reported at contract value (see Note 3), while all other investments in the Plan are reported at fair value (see Note 4). A benefit-responsive investment contract is a contract with a financial institution or an insurance company that provides for a stated return on principal invested over a specified period and that permits withdrawals at contract value for benefit payments, loans, or transfers to other investment options offered to the participant by the Plan. Contract value is the amount participants would receive if they were to initiate permitted transactions under the terms of the Plan.
(b)
Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of income and expense during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates and assumptions.
(c)
Investment Valuation and Income Recognition

The Plan invests in the Company’s common stock, common commingled trust funds and other exchange-traded equity securities held in the separately managed accounts, as well as registered investment companies and certain fully benefit-responsive investment contracts that, in turn, invest in a combination of stocks, bonds and other investment securities. Investment securities are exposed to various risks, such as interest rate, credit, and overall market volatility. Due to risk associated with certain investment securities, it is possible that changes in the values of investment securities will occur and that those changes could materially affect the amounts reported in the statements of net assets available for benefits.

COSTCO 401(k) RETIREMENT PLAN
Notes to Financial Statements (Continued)
December 31, 2017 and 2016


The Capital Preservation Portfolio (CPP) is invested in Synthetic Guaranteed Investment Contracts (SICs) and Separate Account Contracts (SACs), which are fully benefit-responsive and recorded at contract value. Participant withdrawals are required to be recorded at contract value.
There are no reserves against contract value for credit risk of the contract issuer or otherwise. The crediting interest rate is based on a formula agreed upon with the issuer, but may not be less than zero. Such interest rates are reviewed on a quarterly basis for resetting. Certain events may limit the ability of the Plan to transact at contract value with the issuer. Events may include, but are not limited to Plan termination, bankruptcy of the Company, or defunction of the trustee. A result may be that the fully benefit-responsive contracts are terminated and settled at an amount different from the contract value. The Plan Administrator believes at this time that any events that would limit the Plan’s ability to transact at contract value with participants are not probable.
Purchases and sales of securities are recorded on a trade-date basis. Interest income is recorded on an accrual basis. Dividends are recorded on the ex-dividend date. Net appreciation or depreciation of investments includes the change in the fair value or contract value of assets from one period to the next, plus realized gains and losses.
(d)
Notes Receivable from Participants

Participant loans are classified as notes receivable from participants, which are segregated from Plan investments and measured at their unpaid principal balance plus any accrued but unpaid interest.
(e)
Distribution of Benefits

Distributions of benefits are recorded when paid.
(f)     Subsequent Events

The Plan monitors significant events occurring after the balance sheet date and prior to the issuance of the financial statements to determine the impacts, if any, of events on the financial statements to be issued. The Plan has evaluated subsequent events through the date which the financial statements are issued.

(3)
Fully Benefit-Responsive Investment Contracts

The following is a description of the fully benefit-responsive investment contracts invested in by the CPP.

SIC: Consist of a portfolio of underlying assets owned by the Plan and wrap contracts issued by an insurance company and a financial institution. The issuers of the wrap contracts provide for unscheduled withdrawals from the contracts at contract value, regardless of the value of the underlying assets, in order to fund routine permitted participant-initiated withdrawals.
SAC and wrap contract: These are contracts with an insurance company. The issuer legally owns the assets and is required to segregate them into a separate account, which is designed to be protected from the claims of the issuer’s general creditors in the event of insolvency. The issuer of the wrap contract provides for unscheduled withdrawals from the contract at contract value, regardless of the value of the underlying assets, in order to fund routine permitted participant-initiated withdrawals.

Fair Value Measurement

U.S. GAAP defines fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Fair value is estimated by applying a fair value hierarchy, which requires maximizing the use of observable inputs. The three levels of inputs are:
Level 1: Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2: Observable market-based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data.
Level 3: Significant unobservable inputs that are not corroborated by market data.
Valuation techniques utilized during the reporting period in the fair value measurement of Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 assets and liabilities presented on the Plan’s statements of net assets available for benefits were not changed from previous practice.
The following is a description of the valuation methodologies used for assets measured at fair value.
Common stock, registered investment company funds, and separately managed accounts: Valued at the closing price reported in the active market in which the individual securities are traded. These assets are valued using Level 1 inputs.
Common commingled trust: The valuation techniques used to measure the fair value of common commingled trust funds are based on quoted market prices, such as quoted net asset values (NAV) published by the fund as supported in an active market. Plan participant transactions of investment or withdrawals may occur on a daily basis in these trusts. There are no unfunded commitments at December 31, 2017 or 2016. These assets are valued using Level 1 inputs.
The tables below present information regarding investments that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis and indicate the level within the hierarchy reflecting the valuation techniques utilized to determine fair value as of December 31, 2017 and 2016.

Plan Termination

Although it has no present intent to do so, the Company has the right under the Plan to discontinue its contributions at any time and to terminate the Plan, subject to the provisions of ERISA and the requirements of the collective bargaining agreement with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. In the event of plan termination, participants will become 100% vested in their accounts.
(6)
Tax Status

In a determination letter dated June 9, 2017, the IRS informed the Company that the Plan is designed in accordance with applicable sections of the IRC. The Plan Administrator believes that the Plan is designed and is being operated in compliance with the requirements of the IRC.
U.S. GAAP requires Plan management to evaluate tax positions taken by the Plan and recognize a tax liability (or asset) if the Plan has taken an uncertain position that more likely than not would not be sustained upon examination by the IRS. The Plan Administrator has analyzed the tax positions taken by the Plan and has concluded that as of December 31, 2017, there are no uncertain positions taken or expected to be taken that would require recognition of a liability (or asset) or disclosure in the financial statements. The Plan is subject to routine audits by taxing jurisdictions; there are currently no audits in progress. The Plan Administrator believes it is no longer subject to income tax examinations for years prior to 2014.
(7)
Party-in-Interest and Related Party Transactions

Certain Plan investments are shares of registered investment companies, benefit-responsive investment contracts, and common commingled trust funds managed by T. Rowe Price. T. Rowe Price is also the trustee and recordkeeper as defined by the Plan, therefore these transactions qualify as party-in-interest transactions.
As the Plan sponsor, the Company is a party-in-interest with respect to the Plan. As of December 31, 2017 and 2016, the Plan held 29,591,000 and 28,771,000 shares of Costco common stock, with a cost basis of $5.5 billion and $4.6 billion, respectively. The Plan recorded dividend income on Costco common stock of $268.3 million during 2017.
