Note 4 : Contract Liabilities
Contract liabilities consist of prepayments received from customers on long-term prepaid supply agreements toward future product delivery and other revenue deferrals from regular ongoing business activity. Contract liabilities were $351 million as of September 25, 2021 ($1.9 billion as of December 26, 2020).
The following table shows the changes in contract liability balances relating to long-term prepaid supply agreements during the first nine months of 2021:

During the first quarter of 2021, we settled an agreement with our largest prepaid customer whose prepayment balance made up $1.6 billion of our contract liability balance as of December 26, 2020. We returned $950 million to the customer and recognized $584 million in revenue for having completed performance of the prepaid supply agreement. The prepaid supply agreement is excluded from the NAND memory business and is recorded as Corporate revenue in the first nine months of 2021 in the "all other" category presented in "Note 2: Operating Segments" within Notes to Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements.
