Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial
On February 17, 2011, The Timberland Company (the “Company”) issued a press release setting forth the Company’s fourth-quarter and fiscal year 2010 results. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.
The attached press release includes a discussion of constant dollar revenue changes, which exclude the impact of changes in foreign exchange rates, and are not Generally Accepted Accounting Principle (“GAAP”) performance measures. The attached press release includes a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the related GAAP measures. The Company provides constant dollar revenue changes because it uses the measures to understand the underlying results and trends of the business segments excluding the impact of exchange rate changes that are not under management’s direct control.
