PVH CORP.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS


1. GENERAL

PVH Corp. and its consolidated subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company”) constitute a global apparel company whose brand portfolio consists of nationally and internationally recognized brand names, including Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Van Heusen, IZOD, ARROW, Warner’s and Olga, which are owned, and Speedo, which is licensed in perpetuity for North America and the Caribbean, as well as various other owned, licensed and private label brands. The Company designs and markets branded dress shirts, neckwear, sportswear, jeanswear, underwear, intimate apparel, swim products and, to a lesser extent, handbags, footwear and other related products, and licenses its owned brands over a broad range of products. References to the aforementioned and other brand names are to registered trademarks owned by the Company or licensed to the Company by third parties and are identified by italicizing the brand name.

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company. Intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Investments in entities that the Company does not control but has the ability to exercise significant influence over are accounted for using the equity method of accounting. The Company’s Consolidated Income Statements include its proportionate share of the net income or loss of these entities. Please see Note 4, “Investments in Unconsolidated Affiliates,” for a further discussion. As a result of the acquisition of The Warnaco Group, Inc. (“Warnaco”) in 2013, the Company acquired a majority interest in a joint venture in India that was consolidated and accounted for as a redeemable non-controlling interest during 2013. The redeemable non-controlling interest represented the minority shareholders’ proportionate share (49%) of the equity in that entity. During the first quarter of 2014, in connection with the sale of the minority shareholders’ interests to a third party, the Company and the new shareholder entered into a shareholder agreement with different governing arrangements between the Company and the new shareholder as compared to the arrangements with the prior minority shareholders. Based on the new arrangements, the Company no longer is deemed to hold a controlling interest and the joint venture was deconsolidated. As a result, the joint venture is now accounted for using the equity method of accounting. Please see Note 5, “Redeemable Non-Controlling Interest,” for a further discussion.

The Company’s fiscal years are based on the 52-53 week period ending on the Sunday closest to February 1 and are designated by the calendar year in which the fiscal year commences. References to a year are to the Company’s fiscal year, unless the context requires otherwise.

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for interim financial information. Accordingly, they do not contain all disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for complete financial statements. Reference should be made to the audited consolidated financial statements, including the notes thereto, included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended February 1, 2015.

The preparation of interim financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ materially from these estimates.

The results of operations for the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2015 and May 4, 2014 are not necessarily indicative of those for a full fiscal year due, in part, to seasonal factors. The data contained in these financial statements are unaudited and are subject to year-end adjustments. However, in the opinion of management, all known adjustments (which consist only of normal recurring accruals) have been made to present fairly the consolidated operating results for the unaudited periods.

Certain reclassifications have been made to the consolidated financial statements for the prior year periods to present that information on a basis consistent with the current year. 

2. INVENTORIES

Inventories are comprised principally of finished goods and are stated at the lower of cost or market. Cost for principally all wholesale inventories in North America and certain wholesale and retail inventories in Asia and Latin America is determined using the first-in, first-out method. Cost for all other inventories is determined using the weighted average cost method. The Company reviews current business trends, inventory agings and discontinued merchandise categories to determine adjustments, which it estimates will be needed to liquidate existing clearance inventories and reduce inventories to the lower of cost or market.

3. ACQUISITIONS

Acquisition of Russia Franchisee

During the first quarter of 2014, the Company acquired for $4.3 million two Tommy Hilfiger stores in Russia from a former Tommy Hilfiger franchisee. This transaction was accounted for as a business combination.

Acquisition of Ireland Franchisee

During the first quarter of 2014, the Company acquired for $3.1 million six Tommy Hilfiger stores in Ireland from a former Tommy Hilfiger franchisee. This transaction was accounted for as a business combination.

4. INVESTMENTS IN UNCONSOLIDATED AFFILIATES

Karl Lagerfeld
The Company acquired a 10% economic interest in Kingdom Holding 1 B.V., the parent company of the Karl Lagerfeld brand, during the first quarter of 2014 for $18.9 million. One of the Company’s directors owns approximately 35% of Kingdom Holding 1 B.V. The Company has significant influence as defined under FASB guidance with respect to its investment in Kingdom Holding 1 B.V. Therefore, this investment is being accounted for under the equity method of accounting.
Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger and Heritage Brands Australia
The Company formed a joint venture, PVH Brands Australia Pty. Limited (“PVH Australia”), in 2013 in which the Company owns a 50% economic interest. The joint venture licenses from a subsidiary of the Company the rights to distribute and sell certain Calvin Klein brand products in Australia, New Zealand and other island nations in the South Pacific. As part of the transaction, the Company contributed to the joint venture its subsidiaries that were operating the Calvin Klein Jeans businesses in Australia and New Zealand. In connection with this contribution, which took place on the first day of 2014, the Company deconsolidated these subsidiaries and recognized a net gain of $2.1 million during the first quarter of 2014, which was recorded in selling, general and administrative expenses. The gain was measured as the difference between the fair value of the Company’s 50% interest and the carrying value of the net assets and cash contributed. The fair value was determined by a third party valuation firm using the discounted cash flow method, based on net sales projections for the Calvin Klein business in Australia, New Zealand, and other island nations in the South Pacific and was discounted using a rate of return that accounted for the relative risks of the estimated future cash flows.

During the first quarter of 2015, the Company completed a transaction whereby the Tommy Hilfiger and Van Heusen brands in Australia were licensed to subsidiaries of PVH Australia. The Tommy Hilfiger brand had previously been licensed to a third party and the Van Heusen brand had previously been licensed to the Company’s joint venture partner in PVH Australia.

The Company made net payments of $20.8 million and $7.3 million to PVH Australia during the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2015 and May 4, 2014, respectively, representing its 50% share of funding. This investment is being accounted for under the equity method of accounting.
 
Calvin Klein India

The Company acquired a 51% economic interest in a Calvin Klein joint venture in India, Premium Garments Wholesale Trading Private Limited (“CK India”) as part of the Warnaco acquisition. The joint venture licenses from a Company subsidiary the rights to the Calvin Klein trademark in India. Beginning in the first quarter of 2014, this investment is being accounted for under the equity method of accounting. Please see Note 5, “Redeemable Non-Controlling Interest,” for a further discussion. The Company made a payment of $1.6 million to CK India during the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2015 to contribute its 51% share of the joint venture funding.

Tommy Hilfiger Brazil

The Company formed a joint venture, Tommy Hilfiger do Brasil S.A., in Brazil in 2012, in which the Company owns a 40% economic interest. The joint venture licenses from a Company subsidiary the rights to the Tommy Hilfiger trademarks in Brazil. This investment is being accounted for under the equity method of accounting.



6



Tommy Hilfiger China

The Company formed a joint venture, TH Asia Ltd., in China in 2010, in which the Company owns a 45% economic interest. The joint venture began operating the Tommy Hilfiger wholesale and retail distribution businesses in China in 2011. The joint venture licenses from a Company subsidiary the rights to these businesses. This investment is being accounted for under the equity method of accounting.

Tommy Hilfiger India

The Company acquired in 2011 a 50% economic interest in a company that has since been renamed Tommy Hilfiger Arvind Fashion Private Limited (“TH India”). TH India licenses from a Company subsidiary the rights to the Tommy Hilfiger trademarks in India for all categories (other than fragrance), operates a wholesale apparel, footwear and handbags business in connection with its license, and sublicenses the trademarks for certain other product categories. This investment is being accounted for under the equity method of accounting.

Included in other assets in the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets as of May 3, 2015, February 1, 2015 and May 4, 2014 is $136.1 million, $108.3 million and $113.0 million, respectively, related to these investments in unconsolidated affiliates.

5. REDEEMABLE NON-CONTROLLING INTEREST
CK India was consolidated in the Company’s financial statements during 2013. Please see Note 4, “Investments in Unconsolidated Affiliates,” for a further discussion.

During the first quarter of 2014, Arvind Limited, the Company’s joint venture partner in TH India, purchased the Company’s prior joint venture partners’ shares in CK India and, as a result of the entry into a shareholder agreement with different governing arrangements between the Company and Arvind Limited as compared to the arrangements with the prior minority shareholders, the Company no longer is deemed to hold a controlling interest in the joint venture. CK India was deconsolidated as a result and the Company began reporting its 51% interest as an equity method investment in the first quarter of 2014. The Company recognized a net gain of $5.9 million in connection with the deconsolidation of CK India during the first quarter of 2014, which was recorded in selling, general and administrative expenses. The gain was measured as the difference between the fair value of the Company’s 51% interest and the carrying value. The fair value was determined by a third party valuation firm using the discounted cash flow method, based on net sales projections for the Calvin Klein business in India and was discounted using a rate of return that accounted for the relative risks of the estimated future cash flows.

The Company is required to make contingent purchase price payments to Mr. Calvin Klein in connection with the Company’s acquisition in 2003 of all of the issued and outstanding stock of Calvin Klein, Inc. and certain affiliated companies (collectively, “Calvin Klein”). Such payments are based on 1.15% of total worldwide net sales, as defined in the acquisition agreement (as amended), of products bearing any of the Calvin Klein brands and are required to be made with respect to sales made through February 12, 2018. A significant portion of the sales on which the payments to Mr. Klein are made are wholesale sales by the Company and its licensees and other partners to retailers.

7. RETIREMENT AND BENEFIT PLANS

The Company has five noncontributory defined benefit pension plans as of May 3, 2015 covering substantially all employees resident in the United States who meet certain age and service requirements. The plans provide monthly benefits upon retirement based on career compensation and years of credited service. Vesting in plan benefits generally occurs after five years of service. The Company refers to these five plans as its “Pension Plans.” The Company also acquired as part of the Warnaco acquisition a defined benefit pension plan for certain of Warnaco’s former employees in Europe. This plan was not considered to be material for any period presented.

The Company also has for certain members of Tommy Hilfiger’s domestic senior management a supplemental executive retirement plan, which is an unfunded non-qualified supplemental defined benefit pension plan. Such plan is frozen and, as a result, participants do not accrue additional benefits. In addition, the Company has a capital accumulation plan, which is an unfunded non-qualified supplemental defined benefit plan. Under the individual participants’ agreements, the participants in this plan will receive a predetermined amount during the 10 years following the attainment of age 65, provided that prior to the termination of employment with the Company, the participant has been in the plan for at least 10 years and has attained age 55. The Company also has for certain employees resident in the United States who meet certain age and service requirements an unfunded non-qualified supplemental defined benefit pension plan, which provides benefits for compensation in excess of Internal Revenue Service earnings limits and requires payments to vested employees upon, or shortly after, employment termination or retirement. The Company refers to these three plans as its “SERP Plans.”

The Company also provides certain postretirement health care and life insurance benefits to certain retirees resident in the United States. Retirees contribute to the cost of this plan, which is unfunded. During 2002, the postretirement plan was amended to eliminate the Company contribution, which partially subsidized benefits, for active participants who, as of January 1, 2003, had not attained age 55 and 10 years of service. As a result of the Company’s acquisition of Warnaco, the Company also provides certain postretirement health care and life insurance benefits to certain Warnaco retirees resident in the United States. Retirees contribute to the cost of this plan, which is unfunded. This plan was frozen on January 1, 2014. The Company refers to these two plans as its “Postretirement Plans.”

Currently, the Company expects to make a contribution of approximately $1.4 million to its Pension Plans in 2015. The Company’s actual contributions may differ from planned contributions due to many factors including changes in tax and other benefit laws, or significant differences between expected and actual pension asset performance or interest rates.

Total debt repayments for the next five years exceed the carrying balance of the Company’s term loan facilities as of May 3, 2015 because the carrying balance reflects a portion of the original issue discount.

As of May 3, 2015, after taking into account the effect of the Company’s interest rate swap and cap agreements discussed in the section entitled “2014 Senior Secured Credit Facilities” below, which were in effect as of such date, approximately 70% of the Company’s long-term debt had a fixed or capped rate, with the remainder at uncapped variable rates.

2013 Senior Secured Credit Facilities

On February 13, 2013, simultaneously with and related to the closing of the Warnaco acquisition, the Company entered into senior secured credit facilities (the “2013 facilities”), the proceeds of which were used to fund a portion of the acquisition, repay all outstanding borrowings under the Company’s prior facilities and repay all of Warnaco’s previously outstanding long-term debt. The 2013 facilities consisted of a $1,700.0 million United States dollar-denominated Term Loan A facility (recorded net of an original issue discount of $7.3 million as of the acquisition date), a $1,375.0 million United States dollar-denominated Term Loan B facility (recorded net of an original issue discount of $6.9 million as of the acquisition date) and senior secured revolving credit facilities in an aggregate principal amount of $750.0 million (based on the applicable exchange rates on February 13, 2013), consisting of (a) a $475.0 million United States dollar-denominated revolving credit facility, (b) a $25.0 million United States dollar-denominated revolving credit facility available in United States dollars or Canadian dollars and (c) a €185.9 million Euro-denominated revolving credit facility available in Euro, Pounds Sterling, Japanese Yen or Swiss Francs.

On March 21, 2014, the Company amended and restated the 2013 facilities, as discussed in the section entitled “2014 Senior Secured Credit Facilities” below.

2014 Senior Secured Credit Facilities

On March 21, 2014 (the “Restatement Date”), the Company entered into an amendment (the “Amendment”) to the 2013 facilities (as amended by the Amendment, the “2014 facilities”). The Amendment provided for an additional $350.0 million principal amount of loans under the Term Loan A facility and an additional $250.0 million principal amount of loans under the Term Loan B facility and extended the maturity of the Term Loan A and the revolving credit facilities from February 13, 2018 to February 13, 2019. The maturity of the Term Loan B facility remains at February 13, 2020. On the Restatement Date, the Company borrowed the additional principal amounts described above and used the proceeds to redeem all of its outstanding 7 3/8% senior notes, as discussed in the section entitled “7 3/8% Senior Notes Due 2020” below. In connection with entering into the Amendment, the Company paid debt issuance costs of $13.3 million (of which $8.0 million was expensed as debt modification and extinguishment costs and $5.3 million is being amortized over the term of the related debt agreement) and recorded additional debt modification and extinguishment costs of $3.2 million to write-off previously capitalized debt issuance costs.

The 2014 facilities consist of a $1,986.3 million United States dollar-denominated Term Loan A facility (recorded net of an original issue discount of $7.8 million), a $1,188.6 million United States dollar-denominated Term Loan B facility (recorded net of an original issue discount of $5.7 million) and senior secured revolving credit facilities consisting of (a) a $475.0 million United States dollar-denominated revolving credit facility, (b) a $25.0 million United States dollar-denominated revolving credit facility available in United States dollars or Canadian dollars and (c) a €185.9 million Euro-denominated revolving credit facility available in Euro, Pounds Sterling, Japanese Yen or Swiss Francs.

The revolving credit facilities also include amounts available for letters of credit. As of May 3, 2015, the Company had no outstanding revolving credit borrowings and $39.9 million of letters of credit. A portion of each of the United States dollar-denominated revolving credit facilities is also available for the making of swingline loans. The issuance of such letters of credit and the making of any swingline loan reduces the amount available under the applicable revolving credit facility. So long as certain conditions are satisfied, the Company may add one or more term loan facilities or increase the commitments under the revolving credit facilities by an aggregate amount not to exceed the sum of (1) the sum of (x) $1,350.0 million plus (y) the aggregate amount of all voluntary prepayments of term loans under the facilities and the revolving credit facilities (to the extent, in the case of voluntary prepayments of loans under the revolving credit facilities, there is an equivalent permanent reduction of the revolving commitments) plus (z) an amount equal to the aggregate revolving commitments of any defaulting lender (to the extent the commitments with respect thereto have been terminated) and (2) an additional unlimited amount as long as the ratio of the Company’s senior secured net debt to consolidated adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (in each case calculated as set forth in the documentation relating to the 2014 facilities) would not exceed 3 to 1 after giving pro forma effect to the incurrence of such increase. The lenders under the 2014 facilities are not required to provide commitments with respect to such additional facilities or increased commitments.

During the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2015, the Company made payments of $49.8 million on its term loans under the 2014 facilities. As of May 3, 2015, the Company had total term loans outstanding of $2,689.3 million, net of original issue discounts. The terms of each of Term Loan A and Term Loan B contain a mandatory quarterly repayment schedule. Due to previous voluntary payments, the Company is not required to make any additional mandatory payments under Term Loan B prior to maturity.

Obligations of the Company under the 2014 facilities are guaranteed by substantially all of the Company’s existing and future direct and indirect United States subsidiaries, with certain exceptions. Obligations of the European Borrower under the 2014 facilities are guaranteed by the Company, substantially all of its existing and future direct and indirect United States subsidiaries (with certain exceptions) and Tommy Hilfiger Europe B.V., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. The Company and its domestic subsidiary guarantors have pledged certain of their assets as security for the obligations under the 2014 facilities.

The outstanding borrowings under the 2014 facilities are prepayable at any time without penalty (other than customary breakage costs). The terms of the 2014 facilities require the Company to repay certain amounts outstanding thereunder with (a) net cash proceeds of the incurrence of certain indebtedness, (b) net cash proceeds of certain asset sales or other dispositions (including as a result of casualty or condemnation) that exceed certain thresholds, to the extent such proceeds are not reinvested or committed to be reinvested in the business in accordance with customary reinvestment provisions, and (c) a percentage of excess cash flow, which percentage is based upon the Company’s net leverage ratio during the relevant fiscal period.

The United States dollar-denominated borrowings under the 2014 facilities bear interest at a rate equal to an applicable margin plus, as determined at the Company’s option, either (a) a base rate determined by reference to the greater of (i) the prime rate, (ii) the United States federal funds rate plus 1/2 of 1.00% and (iii) a one-month adjusted Eurocurrency rate plus 1.00%

11




(provided, that, with respect to the Term Loan B facility, in no event will the base rate be deemed to be less than 1.75%) or (b) an adjusted Eurocurrency rate, calculated in a manner set forth in the 2014 facilities (provided that, with respect to the Term Loan B facility, in no event will the adjusted Eurocurrency rate be deemed to be less than 0.75%).

Canadian dollar-denominated borrowings under the 2014 facilities bear interest at a rate equal to an applicable margin plus, as determined at the Company’s option, either (a) a Canadian prime rate determined by reference to the greater of (i) the rate of interest per annum that Royal Bank of Canada establishes at its main office in Toronto, Ontario as the reference rate of interest in order to determine interest rates for loans in Canadian dollars to its Canadian borrowers and (ii) the sum of (x) the average of the rates per annum for Canadian dollar bankers’ acceptances having a term of one month that appears on the display referred to as “CDOR Page” of Reuters Monitor Money Rate Services as of 10:00 a.m. (Toronto time) on the date of determination, as reported by the administrative agent (and if such screen is not available, any successor or similar service as may be selected by the administrative agent), and (y) 0.75%, or (b) an adjusted Eurocurrency rate, calculated in a manner set forth in the 2014 facilities.

The borrowings under the 2014 facilities in currencies other than United States dollars or Canadian dollars bear interest at a rate equal to an applicable margin plus an adjusted Eurocurrency rate, calculated in a manner set forth in the 2014 facilities.

The current applicable margin with respect to the Term Loan A facility and each revolving credit facility is 1.50% for adjusted Eurocurrency rate loans and 0.50% for base rate loans, respectively. The current applicable margin with respect to the Term Loan B facility is 2.50% for adjusted Eurocurrency rate loans and 1.50% for base rate loans, respectively. After the date of delivery of the compliance certificate and financial statements with respect to the Company’s fiscal quarter ending May 3, 2015, the applicable margin for borrowings under the Term Loan A facility, the Term Loan B facility and the revolving credit facilities is subject to adjustment based upon the Company’s net leverage ratio.

The 2014 facilities contain customary events of default, including but not limited to nonpayment; material inaccuracy of representations and warranties; violations of covenants; certain bankruptcies and liquidations; cross-default to material indebtedness; certain material judgments; certain events related to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended; certain events related to certain of the guarantees by the Company and certain of its subsidiaries, and certain pledges of its assets and those of certain of its subsidiaries, as security for the obligations under the 2014 facilities; and a change in control (as defined in the 2014 facilities).

During the second quarter of 2014, the Company entered into an interest rate cap agreement for an 18-month term commencing on August 18, 2014. The agreement was designed with the intended effect of capping the interest rate on an initial notional amount of $514.2 million of the Company’s variable rate debt obligation under the 2014 facilities, or any replacement facility with similar terms. Such agreement remains outstanding with a notional amount of $631.9 million as of May 3, 2015. Under the terms of this agreement, the one-month LIBOR that the Company will pay is capped at a rate of 1.50%. Therefore, the maximum amount of interest that the Company will pay on the then-outstanding notional amount will be at the 1.50% capped rate, plus the current applicable margin.

During the second quarter of 2014, the Company entered into an interest rate swap agreement for a two-year term commencing on February 17, 2016. The agreement was designed with the intended effect of converting an initial notional amount of $682.6 million of the Company’s variable rate debt obligation under the 2014 facilities, or any replacement facility with similar terms, to fixed rate debt. Under the terms of the agreement for the then-outstanding notional amount, the Company’s exposure to fluctuations in the one-month LIBOR is eliminated and it will pay a weighted average fixed rate of 1.924%, plus the current applicable margin.

During the second quarter of 2013, the Company entered into an interest rate swap agreement for a three-year term commencing on August 19, 2013. The agreement was designed with the intended effect of converting an initial notional amount of $1,228.8 million of the Company’s variable rate debt obligation under its previously outstanding 2013 facilities, or any replacement facility with similar terms, to fixed rate debt. Such agreement remains outstanding with a notional amount of $1,017.6 million as of May 3, 2015, and is now converting a portion of the Company’s variable rate debt obligation under the 2014 facilities to fixed rate debt. Under the terms of the agreement for the then-outstanding notional amount, the Company’s exposure to fluctuations in the one-month LIBOR is eliminated and it will pay a fixed rate of 0.604%, plus the current applicable margin.

In addition, the Company entered into an interest rate swap agreement for a three-year term commencing on June 6, 2011. The agreement was designed with the intended effect of converting an initial notional amount of $632.0 million of the Company’s variable rate debt obligation under its previously outstanding 2011 facilities, or any replacement facility with similar terms, to fixed rate debt. Such swap agreement expired June 6, 2014.

12





The notional amount of each interest rate swap and cap will be adjusted according to a pre-set schedule during the term of each swap and cap agreement such that, based on the Company’s projections for future debt repayments, the Company’s outstanding debt under the Term Loan A facility is expected to always equal or exceed the combined notional amount of the then-outstanding interest rate swaps and cap.

The 2014 facilities also contain covenants that restrict the Company’s ability to finance future operations or capital needs, to take advantage of other business opportunities that may be in its interest or to satisfy its obligations under its other outstanding debt. These covenants restrict the Company’s ability to, among other things:

incur or guarantee additional debt or extend credit;
make restricted payments, including paying dividends or making distributions on, or redeeming or repurchasing, the Company’s capital stock or certain debt;
make acquisitions and investments;
dispose of assets;
engage in transactions with affiliates;
enter into agreements restricting the Company’s subsidiaries’ ability to pay dividends;
create liens on the Company’s assets or engage in sale/leaseback transactions; and
effect a consolidation or merger, or sell, transfer, or lease all or substantially all of the Company’s assets.

The 2014 facilities require the Company to comply with certain financial covenants, including minimum interest coverage and maximum net leverage. A breach of any of these operating or financial covenants would result in a default under the applicable facility. If an event of default occurs and is continuing, the lenders could elect to declare all amounts then outstanding, together with accrued interest, to be immediately due and payable which would result in acceleration of the Company’s other debt. If the Company was unable to repay any such borrowings when due, the lenders could proceed against their collateral, which also secures some of the Company’s other indebtedness.

4 1/2% Senior Notes Due 2022

On December 20, 2012, the Company issued $700.0 million principal amount of 4 1/2% senior notes due December 15, 2022 in connection with the Warnaco acquisition. Subject to certain conditions, the Company may redeem up to 35% of these notes prior to December 15, 2015 with the net cash proceeds of certain equity offerings without having to pay a penalty or “make whole” premium. The Company may redeem some or all of these notes at any time prior to December 15, 2017 by paying a “make whole” premium plus any accrued and unpaid interest. In addition, the Company may redeem some or all of these notes on or after December 15, 2017 at specified redemption prices plus any accrued and unpaid interest. The Company’s ability to pay cash dividends and make other restricted payments is limited, in each case, over specified amounts as defined in the indenture governing the notes.

7 3/4% Debentures Due 2023

The Company has outstanding $100.0 million of debentures due November 15, 2023 with a yield to maturity of 7.80%. The debentures accrue interest at the rate of 7 3/4%. Pursuant to the indenture governing the debentures, the Company must maintain a certain level of stockholders’ equity in order to pay cash dividends and make other restricted payments, as defined in the indenture governing the debentures.

7 3/8% Senior Notes Due 2020

On May 6, 2010, the Company issued $600.0 million principal amount of 7 3/8% senior notes due May 15, 2020. On March 24, 2014, in connection with the amendment and restatement of the 2013 facilities discussed above in the section entitled “2014 Senior Secured Credit Facilities,” the Company redeemed all of its outstanding 7 3/8% senior notes and, pursuant to the indenture under which the notes were issued, paid a “make whole” premium of $67.6 million to the holders of the notes. The Company also recorded costs of $14.3 million to write-off previously capitalized debt issuance costs associated with these notes.

9. INCOME TAXES

The effective income tax rates for the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2015 and May 4, 2014 were 22.4% and 19.7%, respectively.
The effective income tax rates for the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2015 and May 4, 2014 were lower than the United States statutory rate due to the benefit of lower tax rates in international jurisdictions where the Company files tax returns.

10. DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

The Company has exposure to changes in foreign currency exchange rates related to certain anticipated cash flows principally associated with certain international inventory purchases and certain intercompany transactions. The Company periodically uses foreign currency forward exchange contracts to hedge against a portion of this exposure.

The Company also has exposure to interest rate volatility related to its senior secured term loan facilities. The Company has entered into interest rate swap agreements and an interest rate cap agreement to hedge against a portion of this exposure. Please see Note 8, “Debt,” for a further discussion of the Company’s senior secured term loan facilities and these agreements.

The Company records the foreign currency forward exchange contracts and interest rate contracts at fair value in its Consolidated Balance Sheets, and does not net the related assets and liabilities. Changes in fair value of the foreign currency forward exchange contracts associated with certain international inventory purchases and the interest rate contracts that are designated as effective hedging instruments (collectively referred to as “cash flow hedges”) are recorded in equity as a component of accumulated other comprehensive (loss) income (“AOCI”). The cash flows from such hedges are presented in the same category on the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows as the items being hedged. No amounts were excluded from effectiveness testing. There was no ineffective portion of cash flow hedges during the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2015 and May 4, 2014. In addition, the Company records immediately in earnings changes in the fair value of hedges that are not designated as effective hedging instruments (“undesignated contracts”), including all of the foreign currency forward exchange contracts related to intercompany loans that are not of a long-term investment nature. Any gains and losses that are immediately recognized in earnings on such contracts related to intercompany loans are largely offset by the remeasurement of the underlying intercompany loan balances. The Company does not use derivative financial instruments for trading or speculative purposes.

The following table summarizes the fair value and presentation in the Consolidated Balance Sheets for the Company’s derivative financial instruments:

11. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

FASB guidance for fair value measurements 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. It also establishes a three level hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs used to measure fair value. The three levels of the hierarchy are defined as follows:

Level 1 – Inputs are unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the Company has the ability to access at the measurement date.

Level 2 – Observable inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1, including quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in inactive markets, inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability and inputs derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data.

Level 3 – Unobservable inputs reflecting the Company’s own assumptions about the inputs that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability based on the best information available.


15




In accordance with the fair value hierarchy described above, the following table shows the fair value of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities that are required to be remeasured at fair value on a recurring basis:

The fair value of the foreign currency forward exchange contracts is measured as the total amount of currency to be purchased, multiplied by the difference between (i) the forward rate as of the period end and (ii) the settlement rate specified in each contract. The fair values of the interest rate contracts are based on observable interest rate yield curves and represent the expected discounted cash flows underlying the financial instruments.

Pursuant to the agreement governing the reacquisition of the rights in India to the Tommy Hilfiger trademarks (which the Company entered into in September 2011 in connection with its acquisition of its 50% ownership of TH India), the Company is required to make annual contingent purchase price payments based on a percentage of sales of Tommy Hilfiger products in India in excess of an agreed upon threshold during each of five consecutive 12-month periods (extended to a sixth consecutive 12-month period if the aggregate payments for the five 12-month periods are not at least $15.0 million). Such payments are subject to a $25.0 million aggregate maximum and are due within 60 days following each one-year period. The Company made annual contingent purchase price payments of $0.6 million, $0.4 million and $0.2 million during 2014, 2013 and 2012, respectively. The Company is required to remeasure this liability at fair value on a recurring basis and classifies this as a Level 3 measurement. The fair value of such liability was determined using the discounted cash flow method, based on net sales projections for the Tommy Hilfiger apparel and accessories businesses in India, and was discounted using rates of return that account for the relative risks of the estimated future cash flows. Excluding the initial recognition of the liability for the contingent purchase price payments and payments made to reduce the liability, changes in the fair value are included within selling, general and administrative expenses.

The following table presents the change in the Level 3 contingent purchase price payment liability during the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2015 and May 4, 2014:

Unobservable Inputs
 
Amount
Approximate compounded annual net sales growth rate

%
Approximate
discount rate

A five percentage point increase or decrease in the discount rate would change the liability by approximately $0.5 million.

A five percentage point increase or decrease in the compounded annual net sales growth rate would change the liability by approximately $0.5 million.

There were no transfers between any levels of the fair value hierarchy for any of the Company’s fair value measurements.

There were no non-financial assets or liabilities that were required to be remeasured at fair value on a non-recurring basis during the thirteen weeks ended May 5, 2015 or May 4, 2014.

In connection with the sale of substantially all of the assets of the Company’s Bass business in the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company guaranteed lease payments for substantially all Bass retail stores included in the sale pursuant to the terms of
noncancelable leases expiring on various dates through 2022. These guarantees include minimum rent payments and relate to
leases that commenced prior to the sale of the Bass assets. In certain instances, the Company’s guarantee remains in effect
when an option is exercised to extend the term of the lease. The estimated fair value of these guarantee obligations as of May 3, 2015 was $2.8 million, which was included in accrued expenses and other liabilities in the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheet. The Company classifies this as a Level 3 measurement. The fair value of such guarantee obligations was determined using the discounted cash flow method, based on the guaranteed lease payments, the estimated probability of lease extensions and estimates of the risk of default by the buyer of the Bass assets, and was discounted using rates of return that account for the relative risks of the estimated future cash flows.

The carrying amounts and the fair values of the Company’s cash and cash equivalents, short-term borrowings and long-term debt as of May 3, 2015, February 1, 2015 and May 4, 2014 were as follows:

The fair values of cash and cash equivalents and short-term borrowings approximate their carrying values due to the short-term nature of these instruments. The Company estimates the fair value of its long-term debt using quoted market prices as of the last business day of the applicable quarter. The Company classifies the measurement of its long-term debt as a Level 1 measurement.

12. STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION

The Company grants stock-based awards under its 2006 Stock Incentive Plan (the “2006 Plan”). The 2006 Plan replaced the Company’s 2003 Stock Option Plan (the “2003 Plan”) and certain other prior stock option plans. The 2003 Plan and these other plans terminated upon the 2006 Plan’s initial stockholder approval in June 2006, other than with respect to outstanding options, which continued to be governed by the applicable prior plan. Only awards under the 2003 Plan continue to be outstanding insofar as these prior plans are concerned. Shares issued as a result of stock-based compensation transactions generally have been funded with the issuance of new shares of the Company’s common stock.


17




The Company may grant the following types of incentive awards under the 2006 Plan (i) non-qualified stock options (“NQs”); (ii) incentive stock options (“ISOs”); (iii) stock appreciation rights; (iv) restricted stock; (v) restricted stock units (“RSUs”); (vi) performance shares and performance share units (“PSUs”); and (vii) other stock-based awards. Each award granted under the 2006 Plan is subject to an award agreement that incorporates, as applicable, the exercise price, the term of the award, the periods of restriction, the number of shares to which the award pertains, applicable performance period(s) and performance measure(s), and such other terms and conditions as the plan committee determines.

Through May 3, 2015, the Company has granted under the 2006 Plan (i) service-based NQs, RSUs and restricted stock; (ii) contingently issuable performance share units; and (iii) RSUs that are intended to satisfy the performance-based condition for deductibility under Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code. According to the terms of the 2006 Plan, for purposes of determining the number of shares available for grant, with the exception of the Warnaco employee replacement awards discussed below, each share underlying a stock option award reduces the number available by one share and each share underlying a restricted stock award, RSU or PSU reduces the number available by two shares. Each share underlying a Warnaco employee replacement stock option, restricted stock, RSU or PSU reduces the number available by one share. The per share exercise price of options granted under the 2006 Plan cannot be less than the closing price of the common stock on the date of grant (the business day prior to the date of grant for awards granted prior to September 21, 2006).

The Company currently has service-based NQs outstanding under the 2003 Plan. Such options were granted with an exercise price equal to the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the business day immediately preceding the date of grant.

Under the terms of the merger agreement in connection with the Warnaco acquisition, each outstanding award of Warnaco stock options, restricted stock and restricted stock units was assumed by the Company in 2013 and converted into an award of the same type, and subject to the same terms and conditions, but payable in shares of Company common stock. The replacement stock options are generally exercisable in three equal annual installments commencing one year after the date of original grant and the replacement RSUs and restricted stock awards generally vest three years after the date of original grant, principally on a cliff basis. The Company accounted for the replacement awards as a modification of the existing awards. As such, a new fair value was assigned to the awards, a portion of which is included as part of the merger consideration. The merger consideration of $39.8 million was determined by multiplying the estimated fair value of the Warnaco awards outstanding at the effective time of the Warnaco acquisition, net of the estimated value of awards to be forfeited, by the proportionate amount of the vesting period that had lapsed as of the acquisition date. The remaining fair value, net of estimated forfeitures, is being expensed over the awards’ remaining vesting periods.

Net income for the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2015 and May 4, 2014 included $8.5 million and $11.7 million, respectively, of pre-tax expense related to stock-based compensation, with recognized income tax benefits of $2.0 million and $2.9 million, respectively.

Stock options currently outstanding, with the exception of the Warnaco employee replacement awards discussed above, are generally cumulatively exercisable in four equal annual installments commencing one year after the date of grant. The vesting of such options outstanding is also generally accelerated upon retirement (as defined in the applicable plan). Such options are generally granted with a 10-year term.

The Company estimates the fair value of stock options granted at the date of grant using the Black-Scholes-Merton model. The estimated fair value of the options, net of estimated forfeitures, is expensed over the options’ vesting periods.

The following summarizes the assumptions used to estimate the fair value of service-based stock options granted during the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2015 and May 4, 2014:

The risk-free interest rate is based on United States Treasury yields in effect at the date of grant for periods corresponding to the expected option term. The expected option term represents the weighted average period of time that options granted are expected to be outstanding, based on vesting schedules and the contractual term of the options. Company volatility is based on

18




the historical volatility of the Company’s common stock over a period of time corresponding to the expected option term. Expected dividends are based on the Company’s common stock cash dividend rate at the date of grant.

The Company has continued to utilize the simplified method to estimate the expected term for its “plain vanilla” stock options granted due to a lack of relevant historical data resulting, in part, from changes in the pool of employees receiving option grants, mainly due to acquisitions. The Company will continue to evaluate the appropriateness of utilizing such method.

RSUs granted to employees, with the exception of the Warnaco employee replacement awards, generally vest in three annual installments of 25%, 25% and 50% commencing two years after the date of grant. Service-based RSUs granted to non-employee directors vest in full one year after the date of grant. The underlying RSU award agreements (excluding agreements for non-employee director awards made during or after 2010) generally provide for accelerated vesting upon the award recipient’s retirement (as defined in the 2006 Plan). The fair value of service-based RSUs, with the exception of the Warnaco employee replacement awards, is equal to the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant and is expensed, net of estimated forfeitures, over the RSUs’ vesting periods.

The Company’s restricted stock awards consist solely of awards to Warnaco employees that were replaced with the Company’s restricted stock as of the effective time of the acquisition. The fair value of restricted stock with respect to awards for which the vesting period had not lapsed as of the acquisition date was equal to the closing price of the Company’s common stock on February 12, 2013 and is expensed, net of forfeitures, over the vesting period.

The Company granted contingently issuable PSUs to certain of the Company’s senior executives during the first quarter of each of 2012, 2013 and 2014. These awards were (are) subject to a performance period of two years and a service period of one year beyond the certification of performance. For the awards granted in the first quarter of 2014, the final number of shares that will

19




be earned, if any, is contingent upon the Company’s achievement of goals for the performance period based on earnings per share growth during the performance cycle. For the awards granted in the first quarter of 2013, the two year performance period has ended and the final number of shares earned, as determined based on earnings per share growth during the performance period, will vest following the additional service period. The holders of the awards granted in the first quarter of 2012 earned an aggregate 54 shares as a result of the Company’s performance during the performance period. For such awards, the Company records expense ratably over each applicable vesting period based on fair value and the Company’s current expectations of the probable number of shares that will ultimately be issued. The fair value of these contingently issuable performance share units is equal to the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant, reduced for the present value of any dividends expected to be paid on the Company’s common stock during the performance cycle, as these contingently issuable performance share units do not accrue dividends prior to the completion of the performance cycle.

The Company granted contingently issuable PSUs to certain of the Company’s executives during the second quarter of 2013 and to certain of the Company’s senior executives during the first quarter of 2015 subject to a performance period of three years. For the awards granted in the second quarter of 2013 and the first quarter of 2015, the final number of shares that will be earned, if any, is contingent upon the Company’s achievement of goals for the applicable performance period, of which 50 percent is based upon the Company’s absolute stock price growth during the applicable performance period and 50 percent is based upon the Company’s total shareholder return during the applicable performance period relative to other companies included in the S&P 500 as of the date of grant. For such awards, because the awards are subject to market conditions, the Company records expense ratably over the applicable vesting period, net of estimated forfeitures, regardless of whether the market condition is satisfied. The fair value of the awards granted in the first quarter of 2015 was established on the grant date using the Monte Carlo simulation model, which was based on the following assumptions:

The Company receives a tax deduction for certain transactions associated with its stock plan awards. The actual income tax benefits realized from these transactions for the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2015 and May 4, 2014 were $5.7 million and $8.3 million, respectively. Of those amounts, $2.0 million and $3.1 million, respectively, were reported as excess tax benefits. Excess tax benefits arise when the actual tax benefit resulting from a stock plan award transaction exceeds the tax benefit associated with the grant date fair value of the related stock award.

Shares underlying contingently issuable awards that have not met the necessary conditions as of the end of a reporting period are not included in the calculation of diluted net income per common share for that period. The Company had contingently issuable awards outstanding that did not meet the performance conditions as of May 3, 2015 and May 4, 2014 and, therefore, were excluded from the calculation of diluted net income per common share for the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2015 and May 4, 2014. The maximum number of potentially dilutive shares that could be issued upon vesting for such awards was 0.9 million and 0.8 million as of May 3, 2015 and May 4, 2014, respectively. These amounts were also excluded from the computation of weighted average potentially dilutive securities in the table above.

16. NONCASH INVESTING AND FINANCING TRANSACTIONS

During the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2015 and May 4, 2014, the Company recorded increases to goodwill of $11.7 million and $11.2 million, respectively, related to liabilities incurred for contingent purchase price payments to Mr. Calvin Klein. Such amounts are not due or paid in cash until 45 days subsequent to the Company’s applicable quarter end. As such, during the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2015 and May 4, 2014, the Company paid $11.9 million and $11.6 million, respectively, in cash related to contingent purchase price payments to Mr. Calvin Klein that were recorded as additions to goodwill during the periods the liabilities were incurred.

During the first quarter of 2014, the Company recorded a loss of $17.5 million to write-off previously capitalized debt issuance costs in connection with the amendment and restatement of the 2013 facilities and the related redemption of its 7 3/8% senior notes due 2020.

Omitted from purchases of property, plant and equipment in the Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows for the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2015 and May 4, 2014 are $2.5 million and $1.8 million, respectively, of assets acquired through capital leases.

Omitted from investments in unconsolidated affiliates in the Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows for the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2014 are noncash increases in the investment balances related to the Company’s Calvin Klein Australia joint venture and Calvin Klein India joint venture of $3.7 million and $6.2 million, respectively, resulting from the deconsolidation of these entities. Please see Note 4, “Investments in Unconsolidated Affiliates,” and Note 5, “Redeemable Non-Controlling Interest,” for a further discussion.

18. GUARANTEES

The Company guaranteed to a landlord the payment of rent and related costs by the tenant currently occupying space previously leased by the Company. The maximum amount guaranteed as of May 3, 2015 was approximately $3.7 million,

27



which is subject to exchange rate fluctuation. The Company has the right to seek recourse of approximately $2.3 million as of May 3, 2015, which is subject to exchange rate fluctuation. The guarantee expires on May 19, 2016. The estimated fair value of this guarantee obligation was immaterial as of May 3, 2015.

In connection with the sale of substantially all of the assets of the Company’s Bass business in the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company guaranteed lease payments for substantially all Bass retail stores included in the sale pursuant to the terms of noncancelable leases expiring on various dates through 2022. These guarantees include minimum rent payments and relate to leases that commenced prior to the sale of the Bass assets. In certain instances, the Company’s guarantee remains in effect when an option is exercised to extend the term of the lease. The maximum amount guaranteed for all leases as of May 3, 2015 was $54.8 million and the Company has the right to seek recourse from the buyer of the Bass assets for the full amount. The estimated fair value of these guarantee obligations as of May 3, 2015, February 1, 2015 and May 4, 2014 was $2.8 million, $3.0 million and $3.8 million, respectively, which was included in accrued expenses and other liabilities in the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets.

In connection with the Company’s investments in PVH Australia and CK India, the Company has guaranteed a portion of the entities’ debt and other obligations. The maximum amount guaranteed as of May 3, 2015 was approximately $8.3 million, which is subject to exchange rate fluctuation. The guarantees are in effect for the entire terms of the respective obligations. The estimated fair value of these guarantee obligations was immaterial as of May 3, 2015.

The Company has certain other guarantees whereby it guaranteed the payment of amounts on behalf of certain other parties, none of which are material individually or in the aggregate.

19. RECENT ACCOUNTING GUIDANCE

The FASB issued in May 2014 guidance that supersedes most of the current revenue recognition requirements. The core principle of the new guidance is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. New disclosures about the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers are also required. In April 2015, the FASB proposed a one year delay to the required adoption date of the standard, which, if approved, would make it effective for the Company no later than the first quarter of 2018, with adoption in 2017 permitted. The new standard is required to be applied retrospectively to each prior reporting period or retrospectively with the cumulative effect of initially applying the standard recognized at the date of initial application. The Company has not yet selected a transition method and is currently evaluating the standard to determine the impact of its adoption on the consolidated financial statements.

The FASB issued in April 2015 an update to accounting guidance related to debt issuance costs. The guidance requires debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability to be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that debt liability, consistent with the presentation of debt discounts. This guidance is effective for the Company in the first quarter of 2016, with early adoption permitted. Retrospective application of the new guidance is required. Had the Company early adopted this guidance, other current assets/other assets would have been lower by $26.9 million, $28.3 million and $32.4 million with corresponding decreases in debt as of May 3, 2015, February 1, 2015 and May 4, 2014, respectively.

The FASB issued in April 2015 an update to accounting guidance related to retirement benefits. This guidance provides a practical expedient which allows a company with fiscal years that do not fall on a calendar month-end to measure defined benefit plan assets and obligations using the month end that is closest to the company’s fiscal year end. If elected, this guidance should be applied consistently from year to year for all plans. This guidance will be effective for the Company in the first quarter of 2016, with early adoption permitted. Prospective application is required. The Company does not currently anticipate changing its measurement date under this guidance.

ITEM 2 - MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

We aggregate our reporting segments into three main businesses: (i) Calvin Klein, which consists of the businesses we operate under our Calvin Klein trademarks; (ii) Tommy Hilfiger, which consists of the businesses we operate under our Tommy Hilfiger trademarks; and (iii) Heritage Brands, which consists of the businesses we operate under our Van Heusen, IZOD, ARROW, Warner’s and Olga trademarks, the Speedo trademark we license in perpetuity for North America and the Caribbean, and other owned and licensed trademarks. References to the brand names Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Van Heusen, IZOD, ARROW, Warner’s, Olga and Speedo and to other brand names are to registered trademarks owned by us or licensed to us by third parties and are identified by italicizing the brand name.


References to the acquisition of Warnaco refer to our February 13, 2013 acquisition of The Warnaco Group, Inc. and its subsidiaries, which we refer to collectively as “Warnaco.”


OVERVIEW

The following discussion and analysis is intended to help you understand us, our operations and our financial performance. It should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and the accompanying notes, which are included in the immediately preceding item of this report.

We are one of the largest branded apparel companies in the world, with a heritage dating back over 130 years. Our brand portfolio consists of nationally and internationally recognized brand names, including Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Van Heusen, IZOD, ARROW, Speedo (licensed in perpetuity for North America and the Caribbean from Speedo International, Limited), Warner’s and Olga. We also license brands from third parties primarily for use on dress shirts, neckwear and underwear offered in the United States and Canada. We announced in January 2015 that we will exit our Izod retail business during 2015.

Our business strategy is to manage and market a portfolio of nationally and internationally recognized apparel and lifestyle brands at multiple price points and across multiple channels of distribution and geographies. We believe this approach reduces our reliance on any one demographic group, merchandise preference, distribution channel or geographic region.

OPERATIONS OVERVIEW

We generate net sales from (i) the wholesale distribution to retailers, franchisees, licensees and distributors of men’s dress shirts, neckwear and underwear, jeanswear, sportswear, intimate apparel, swim products, footwear, accessories and related products under owned and licensed trademarks, and (ii) the sale through (a) over 1,500 Company-operated free-standing retail store locations worldwide under our Calvin KleinTommy HilfigerVan Heusen and IZOD trademarks, (b) over 1,100 Company-operated concessions/shop-in-shops worldwide under our Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger trademarks, and (c) e-commerce websites in certain regions under our Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger trademarks, of apparel, footwear, accessories and other products, and swimwear and related products in North America through our Speedo e-commerce website.

We recorded pre-tax charges in the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2015 and May 4, 2014 principally in connection with the Warnaco integration and restructuring that totaled $19 million and $34 million, respectively. We also recorded pre-tax debt modification and extinguishment charges in the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2014 that totaled $93 million. We recorded a net gain of $8 million in the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2014 resulting from the deconsolidation of certain Calvin Klein subsidiaries in Australia and New Zealand and our previously consolidated Calvin Klein joint venture in India (please refer to Note 4, “Investments in Unconsolidated Affiliates” and Note 5, “Redeemable Non-Controlling Interest” in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements included in Part 1, Item 1 of this report for a further discussion). We expect to incur additional pre-tax charges of approximately $31 million during the remainder of 2015 in connection with the Warnaco integration and related restructuring. Our future results of operations will continue to be significantly impacted by the Warnaco acquisition, particularly through the operations of the Calvin Klein business.

In January 2015, we announced the closure of our Izod retail business, with the closing expected to be completed by the end of 2015. We recorded pre-tax charges of $1 million in the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2015 in connection with operating and exiting our Izod retail business. We expect to incur additional pre-tax charges of approximately $19 million during the remainder of 2015.


29




Our Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger businesses each have substantial international components, which expose us to foreign exchange risk. Amounts recorded in local foreign currencies are translated back to United States dollars using an average exchange rate over the representative period. Our international revenue and profit is unfavorably impacted during times of a strengthening United States dollar and favorably impacted during times of a weakening United States dollar. The United
States dollar has strengthened recently against certain major currencies, particularly the Euro, which is our largest foreign currency exposure. In 2014, approximately 45% of our revenue was subject to foreign currency translation, the majority of which relates to our operations in Europe. We currently expect the strength of the United States dollar and resulting unfavorable impact on our revenue and earnings to continue into 2015 as more fully discussed below.

Our calculations of the comparable store sales percentages throughout this discussion are based on local currencies and comparable weeks.

SEASONALITY

Our business generally follows a seasonal pattern. Our wholesale businesses tend to generate higher levels of sales in the first and third quarters, while our retail businesses tend to generate higher levels of sales in the fourth quarter. Royalty, advertising and other revenue tends to be earned somewhat evenly throughout the year, although the third quarter has the highest level of royalty revenue due to higher sales by licensees in advance of the holiday selling season. We expect this seasonal pattern will generally continue.

Due to the above factors, our operating results for the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of those for a full fiscal year.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Thirteen Weeks Ended May 3, 2015 Compared With Thirteen Weeks Ended May 4, 2014

Total Revenue

Total revenue in the first quarter of 2015 was $1.879 billion as compared to $1.964 billion in the first quarter of the prior year. The decrease in revenue of $84 million was due principally to the net effect of the following items:

The reduction of $95 million of revenue attributable to our Tommy Hilfiger North America and Tommy Hilfiger International segments, which included a reduction of approximately $100 million related to the impact of foreign currency translation resulting principally from the weaker Euro. Revenue in the Tommy Hilfiger North America business decreased 2% (including a 1% negative foreign currency impact), driven by a 3% decrease in retail comparable store sales due to a sharp decline in traffic and spending in United States stores located in international tourist locations. Revenue in the Tommy Hilfiger International business decreased 17% (including a 19% negative foreign currency impact). The increase excluding the negative foreign currency impact was driven primarily by our European business, including a 2% increase in retail comparable store sales, which included weakness in our Russia business.

The reduction of $11 million of revenue attributable to our Calvin Klein North America and Calvin Klein International segments, which included a reduction of approximately $45 million related to the impact of foreign currency translation. Revenue in the Calvin Klein North America business was relatively flat (including a 2% negative foreign currency impact). The North America wholesale business experienced overall modest growth, as an increase in sales to department stores more than offset a decline in sales to the off-price channel. Also favorably impacting wholesale revenue for the quarter was a shift of shipments into the first quarter of 2015 from the second quarter. North America retail comparable store sales decreased 1%, as the strengthening United States dollar resulted in decreased traffic and spending in United States stores located in international tourist locations. Revenue in the Calvin Klein International business decreased 4% (including a 12% negative foreign currency impact), with a 10% increase in retail comparable store sales. The international revenue increase excluding the negative foreign currency impact was driven by strength in Asia, which included a benefit due to the Chinese New Year, as the first quarter of fiscal 2015 included a Chinese New Year while the first quarter of fiscal 2014 did not, and Europe, where our repositioning strategy has begun to gain traction.

The addition of $22 million of revenue attributable to growth in our Heritage Brands Retail and Heritage Brands Wholesale segments. The increase was principally driven by a shift in the timing of wholesale shipments into the first

30




quarter of 2015 from the second quarter and a retail comparable store sales increase of 14% in the Van Heusen business.

Revenue for the full year 2015 is currently projected to decrease 3% compared to the prior year, inclusive of a negative impact of 6% related to foreign currency translation. Revenue for the Calvin Klein business is currently expected to increase 1% compared to the prior year, inclusive of a negative impact of 5% related to foreign currency translation. Revenue for the Tommy Hilfiger business is currently expected to decrease approximately 7% compared to the prior year, inclusive of a negative impact of 10% related to foreign currency translation. Revenue for the Heritage Brands business is currently projected to decrease approximately 3% compared to the prior year.

Gross Profit

Gross profit is calculated as total revenue less cost of goods sold and gross margin is calculated as gross profit divided by total revenue. Included as cost of goods sold are costs associated with the production and procurement of product, including inbound freight costs, purchasing and receiving costs and inspection costs. All of our royalty, advertising and other revenue is included in gross profit because there is no cost of goods sold associated with such revenue. As a result, our gross profit may not be comparable to that of other entities.

Gross profit in the first quarter of 2015 was $986 million, or 52.4% of total revenue, compared with $1.033 billion, or 52.6% of total revenue in the first quarter of the prior year. The 20 basis point decrease was principally driven by a decline in our Tommy Hilfiger North America retail business due to decreased international tourist traffic and spending, which drove more promotional selling, and the strengthening of the United States dollar which caused our Calvin Klein International and Tommy Hilfiger International segments, which generally carry higher gross margins than our North American businesses, to be translated to United States dollars at lower average exchange rates. These declines were partially offset by strong gross margin improvement in the overall Calvin Klein business, particularly in Asia and Europe.

We currently expect that gross margin for the full year 2015 will increase as compared with 2014 due principally to strong improvement in our Calvin Klein business. We currently expect the strength of the United States dollar experienced in the first quarter of 2015 to continue and, as a result, the aforementioned gross margin increase will be partially offset by the impact of unfavorable foreign exchange rates, as our Calvin Klein International and Tommy Hilfiger International segments, which generally carry higher gross margins than our North American businesses, will be translated to United States dollars at lower average exchange rates. Additionally, our international businesses often purchase inventory in United States dollars and, as the United States dollar strengthens, this United States dollar-based inventory converts into a higher amount of local currency inventory and cost of goods when the goods are sold. We currently expect this will be the case in the remainder of 2015.

Selling, General and Administrative (“SG&A”) Expenses

SG&A expenses in the first quarter of 2015 were $815 million, or 43.4% of total revenue, as compared to $859 million, or 43.7% of total revenue in the first quarter of the prior year. The 30 basis point decrease in SG&A expenses as a percentage of total revenue was due principally to our Calvin Klein International and Tommy Hilfiger International segments, which generally carry higher SG&A percentages of total revenue than our North American businesses, being translated to United States dollars at lower average exchange rates, and a reduction in Warnaco integration and restructuring costs compared to the prior year’s first quarter.

We currently expect that our SG&A expenses as a percentage of total revenue for the full year 2015 will decrease from 2014, as (i) we currently do not expect our 2015 SG&A to be significantly impacted by an actuarial gain or loss associated with our United States retirement plans, while our 2014 SG&A included a $139 million actuarial loss, and (ii) we currently expect to incur lower costs in 2015 as compared to 2014 associated with the integration of Warnaco and the related restructuring. In addition, we expect that the impact of the stronger dollar in 2015 as compared with 2014 will result in a decrease in our SG&A expenses as a percentage of total revenue, as our Calvin Klein International and Tommy Hilfiger International segments, which generally carry higher SG&A percentages of total revenue than our North American businesses, will be translated to United States dollars at lower average exchange rates. Our actual SG&A expense may be significantly different than our projections because of expense associated with our United States retirement plans. United States retirement plan expense recorded throughout the year is calculated using actuarial valuations that incorporate assumptions and estimates about financial market, economic and demographic conditions. Differences between estimated and actual results give rise to gains and losses that are recorded immediately in earnings, generally in the fourth quarter of the year, which can create volatility in our operating results.

Debt Modification and Extinguishment Costs

We incurred costs totaling $93 million during the first quarter of 2014 in connection with the amendment and restatement of our senior secured credit facilities entered into in 2013 and the redemption of our 7 3/8% senior notes due 2020. Please refer to the section entitled “Liquidity and Capital Resources” below for a further discussion.

Equity in Net Income of Unconsolidated Affiliates

The equity in net income of unconsolidated affiliates, in the first quarter of 2015 was $6 million as compared to $4 million in the first quarter of the prior year. These amounts relate to our share of income from our joint ventures for the Tommy Hilfiger brand in China, India and Brazil, for the Calvin Klein brand in India, for the Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein and Van Heusen brands in Australia and for the Karl Lagerfeld brand. Please refer to Note 4, “Investments in Unconsolidated Affiliates,” in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements included in Part 1, Item 1 of this report for further discussions.

Interest Expense, Net

Net interest expense decreased to $30 million in the first quarter of 2015 from $41 million in the first quarter of the prior year due to lower average debt balances and interest rates as compared to the prior year, combined with the effect of the amendment and restatement of our credit facility during the first quarter of 2014 and the related redemption of our 7 3/8% senior notes due 2020. Please see the section entitled “Financing Arrangements” within “Liquidity and Capital Resources” below for a further discussion.

Net interest expense for the full year 2015 is currently expected to decrease to approximately $120 million to $125 million from $139 million in 2014, mainly due to lower average debt balances. We currently expect to repay approximately $350 million of debt in 2015, of which $50 million was repaid during the first quarter.

Income Taxes

The effective income tax rates for the first quarters of 2015 and 2014 were 22.4% and 19.7%, respectively.

The effective income tax rates for the first quarters of 2015 and 2014 were lower than the United States statutory rate due to the benefit of lower tax rates in international jurisdictions where we file tax returns.

We currently expect our full year 2015 effective income tax rate to be lower than the United States statutory rate due principally to the benefit of overall lower tax rates in international jurisdictions where we file tax returns.

Our tax rate is affected by many factors, including the mix of international and domestic pre-tax earnings, discrete events arising from specific transactions, and audits by tax authorities or the receipt of new information, any of which can cause us to change our estimate for uncertain tax positions.
