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, Olga and, as of March 30, 2017, True&Co., which are owned, and Speedo, which is licensed, as well as various other owned, licensed and private label brands. The Company designs and markets branded dress shirts, neckwear, sportswear, jeanswear, performance apparel, intimate apparel, underwear, swim products, handbags, accessories, 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 and common law 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 6, “Investments in Unconsolidated Affiliates,” for a further discussion. During the second quarter of 2016, the Company and Arvind Limited (“Arvind”) formed a joint venture in Ethiopia, PVH Arvind Manufacturing Private Limited Company (“PVH Ethiopia”), in which the Company owns a 75% interest. PVH Ethiopia is consolidated and the minority shareholder’s proportionate share (25%) of the equity in this joint venture is accounted for as a redeemable non-controlling interest. Please see Note 5, “Redeemable Non-Controlling Interest,” for a further discussion.

The Company’s fiscal years are based on the 52-53 week periods ending on the Sunday closest to February 1 of each calendar year 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 is made to the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements, including the notes thereto, included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 29, 2017.

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 April 30, 2017 and May 1, 2016 are not necessarily indicative of those for a full fiscal year due, in part, to seasonal factors. The data contained in these consolidated financial statements are unaudited and are subject to year-end adjustments. However, in the opinion of management, all known adjustments (which consist of normal recurring accruals) have been made to present fairly the consolidated operating results for the unaudited periods.

The Company records warehousing and distribution expenses as a component of selling, general and administrative expenses in its Consolidated Income Statements. Warehousing and distribution expenses, which are subject to exchange rate fluctuations, totaled $60.8 million and $58.3 million in the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2017 and May 1, 2016, respectively, excluding costs related to the consolidation of the Company’s warehouse and distribution network in North America incurred in the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2017.

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 net realizable value. 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 aging and discontinued merchandise categories to determine

5



adjustments that it estimates will be needed to liquidate existing clearance inventories and record inventories at the lower of cost or net realizable value.

3. ACQUISITIONS

Acquisition of True & Co.

The Company acquired on March 30, 2017 True & Co., a direct-to-consumer intimate apparel digital commerce retailer. This acquisition enables the Company to participate further in the fast-growing online channel and provides a platform to increase innovation, data-driven decisions and speed in the way it serves its consumers across its channels of distribution.

The acquisition date fair value of the consideration paid was $28.5 million. The estimated fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed included net assets of $0.8 million (including $0.4 million of cash acquired) and $27.7 million of goodwill. The goodwill of $27.7 million was assigned as of the acquisition date to the Company’s Calvin Klein North America, Calvin Klein International and Heritage Brands Wholesale segments in the amounts of $7.2 million, $6.3 million and $14.2 million, respectively, which are the Company’s reporting units that are expected to benefit from the synergies of the combination. For those reporting units that had not been assigned any of the assets acquired or liabilities assumed in the acquisition, the amount of goodwill assigned was determined by calculating the estimated fair value of such reporting units before the acquisition and their estimated fair values after the acquisition. Goodwill is not expected to be deductible for tax purposes. The Company is still in the process of finalizing the valuation of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed; thus, the allocation of the acquisition consideration is subject to change.

Acquisition of TH China

The Company acquired on April 13, 2016 the 55% of the ownership interests in TH Asia, Ltd. (“TH China”), its former joint venture for Tommy Hilfiger in China, that it did not already own (the “TH China acquisition”). Prior to April 13, 2016, the Company accounted for its 45% interest in TH China under the equity method of accounting. Since the completion of the TH China acquisition, the results of TH China’s operations have been consolidated in the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

TH China began operating the Tommy Hilfiger wholesale and retail distribution businesses in China in 2011 and held a license from a subsidiary of the Company for the Tommy Hilfiger trademarks for use in connection with these businesses.

The carrying value of the Company’s 45% interest in TH China prior to the acquisition was $52.5 million. In connection with the acquisition, this investment was remeasured to a fair value of $205.6 million, resulting in the recognition of a pre-tax noncash gain of $153.1 million during the first quarter of 2016. Such fair value was estimated using future operating cash flow projections that were discounted at a rate of 14.4%, which accounted for the relative risks of the estimated future cash flows. Such fair value also included an estimated discount for a lack of marketability of 10.0%. The Company classified this as a Level 3 fair value measurement due to the use of these significant unobservable inputs.

The acquisition date fair value of the consideration for the 55% interest that the Company did not already own was $265.8 million, consisting of $263.0 million paid in cash and the elimination of a $2.8 million pre-acquisition receivable owed to the Company by TH China. Together with the fair value of the Company’s 45% interest, the total fair value of TH China was $471.4 million. The estimated fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed included net assets of $102.2 million (including $105.3 million of cash acquired), $110.6 million of other intangible assets and $258.6 million of goodwill. The goodwill of $258.6 million was assigned to the Company’s Tommy Hilfiger International segment. Goodwill is not expected to be deductible for tax purposes. The other intangible assets of $110.6 million included reacquired license rights of $72.0 million, order backlog of $26.2 million and customer relationships of $12.4 million. The Company finalized the purchase price allocation during the fourth quarter of 2016.

4. ASSETS HELD FOR SALE

During 2015, one of the Company’s European subsidiaries entered into an agreement to sell a building in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The Company classified the building as held for sale in the fourth quarter of 2015 and ceased recording depreciation on the building at that time. The building had a carrying value of $15.3 million as of May 1, 2016, which was determined to be lower than the fair value, less costs to sell, and was included in other current assets in the Calvin Klein International segment. The Company completed the sale of the building in the second quarter of 2016.

5. REDEEMABLE NON-CONTROLLING INTEREST

During the second quarter of 2016, the Company and Arvind formed PVH Ethiopia, in which the Company owns a 75% interest. The Company has consolidated the joint venture in its consolidated financial statements. PVH Ethiopia was formed to operate a manufacturing facility that produces finished products for the Company for distribution primarily in the United States. The manufacturing facility began operations in the first half of 2017.

The shareholders agreement governing the joint venture (the “Shareholders Agreement”) contains a put option under which Arvind can require the Company to purchase all of its shares in the joint venture during various future periods as specified in the Shareholders Agreement. The first such period immediately precedes the ninth anniversary of the date of incorporation of PVH Ethiopia. The Shareholders Agreement also contains call options under which the Company can require Arvind to sell to the Company (i) all or a portion of its shares during various future periods as specified in the Shareholders Agreement; (ii) all of its shares in the event of a change of control of Arvind; or (iii) all of its shares in the event that Arvind ceases to hold at least ten percent of the outstanding shares. The Company’s first call option referred to in clause (i) immediately follows the fifth anniversary of the date of incorporation of PVH Ethiopia. The put and call prices are the fair market value of the shares on the redemption date based upon a multiple of the joint venture’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization for the prior 12 months, less the joint venture’s net debt.

The fair value of the redeemable non-controlling interest (“RNCI”) as of the date of formation of the joint venture was $0.1 million. The carrying amount of the RNCI is adjusted to equal the redemption amount at the end of each reporting period, provided that this amount at the end of each reporting period cannot be lower than the initial fair value adjusted for the minority shareholder’s share of net income or loss. Any adjustment to the redemption amount of the RNCI is determined after attribution of net income of the RNCI and will be recognized immediately in retained earnings of the Company, since it is probable that the RNCI will become redeemable in the future based on the passage of time. The carrying amount of the RNCI, which is also its fair value, increased to $3.4 million as of April 30, 2017 from $2.0 million as of January 29, 2017, principally attributable to additional contributions of $1.7 million made by Arvind during the first quarter of 2017 for its proportionate share of the joint venture funding.

6. INVESTMENTS IN UNCONSOLIDATED AFFILIATES

Karl Lagerfeld
The Company owns an economic interest of approximately 8% in the parent company of the Karl Lagerfeld brand (“Karl Lagerfeld”). The Company has significant influence with respect to this investment, which is being accounted for under the equity method of accounting.

The goodwill acquired in the True & Co. acquisition was assigned as of the acquisition date to the Company’s reporting units that are expected to benefit from the synergies of the combination. For those reporting units that had not been assigned any of the assets acquired or liabilities assumed in the acquisition, the amount of goodwill assigned was determined by calculating the estimated fair value of such reporting units before the acquisition and their estimated fair values after the acquisition.
 
The Company is required to make contingent purchase price payments to Mr. Calvin Klein in connection with the Company’s acquisition 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.
  
8. RETIREMENT AND BENEFIT PLANS

The Company has five qualified defined benefit pension plans as of April 30, 2017 covering substantially all employees resident in the United States who meet certain age and service requirements. The plans provide monthly benefits upon retirement generally based on career average compensation and years of credited service. Vesting in plan benefits generally occurs after five years of service. The Company refers to these five noncontributory plans as its “Pension Plans.”
 
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 program, 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 noncontributory 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. As a result of the Company’s acquisition of The Warnaco Group, Inc. (“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. Both of

the Company’s postretirement health care and life insurance benefit plans are frozen. The Company refers to these two plans as its “Postretirement Plans.”

Net benefit cost was recognized in selling, general and administrative expenses in the Company’s Consolidated Income Statements as follows:

Net benefit cost related to the Company’s Postretirement Plans was immaterial for the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2017 and May 1, 2016.

Currently, the Company does not expect to make any material contributions to the Pension Plans in 2017. 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.

During the first quarter of 2017, the Company completed the purchase of a group annuity using assets from the Pension Plans. Under the group annuity, the accrued pension obligations for approximately 4,000 select retiree participants who have deferred vested benefits under the Pension Plans were transferred to an insurer. As a result, the Company recognized a loss of $9.4 million, which was recorded in selling, general and administrative expenses in the Company’s Consolidated Income Statement for the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2017. The amount of the pension benefit obligation settled was $65.3 million.

9. DEBT

Short-Term Borrowings

The Company has the ability to draw revolving borrowings under its senior secured credit facilities, as discussed in the section entitled “2016 Senior Secured Credit Facilities” below. As of April 30, 2017, the Company had $20.8 million of borrowings outstanding under these facilities. The weighted average interest rate on the funds borrowed as of April 30, 2017 was 4.39%. The maximum amount of revolving borrowings outstanding under these facilities during the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2017 was $33.6 million.

Additionally, the Company has the availability to borrow under short-term lines of credit, overdraft facilities and short-term revolving credit facilities denominated in various foreign currencies. These facilities provided for borrowings of up to $92.4 million based on exchange rates in effect on April 30, 2017 and are utilized primarily to fund working capital needs. As of April 30, 2017, the Company had $21.7 million outstanding under these facilities. The weighted average interest rate on the funds borrowed as of April 30, 2017 was approximately 2.50%. The maximum amount of borrowings outstanding under these facilities during the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2017 was $23.5 million.

Total debt repayments for the next five years exceed the carrying amount of the Company’s Term Loan A facility and 4 1/2% senior unsecured notes due 2022 as of April 30, 2017 because the carrying amounts reflect the unamortized portions of debt issuance costs and the original issue discounts.

As of April 30, 2017, after taking into account the effect of the Company’s interest rate swap agreement discussed in the section below entitled “2016 Senior Secured Credit Facilities,” which was in effect as of such date, approximately 65% of the Company’s long-term debt had a fixed interest rate, with the remainder at variable interest rates.

2014 Senior Secured Credit Facilities

On March 21, 2014, the Company entered into an amendment to its senior secured credit facilities (as amended, the “2014 facilities”). The 2014 facilities consisted of a $1,986.3 million United States dollar-denominated Term Loan A facility, a $1,188.6 million United States dollar-denominated Term Loan B facility 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, British pound sterling, Japanese yen or Swiss francs.

On May 19, 2016, the Company amended the 2014 facilities, as discussed in the following section.

2016 Senior Secured Credit Facilities

On May 19, 2016 (the “Amendment Date”), the Company entered into an amendment (the “Amendment”) to the 2014 facilities (as amended by the Amendment, the “2016 facilities”). Among other things, the Amendment provided for (i) the Company to borrow an additional $582.0 million principal amount of loans under the Term Loan A facility, (ii) the repayment of all outstanding loans under the Term Loan B facility with the proceeds of the additional loans under the Term Loan A facility, and (iii) the termination of the Term Loan B facility. In addition, the Amendment extended the maturity of the Term Loan A and the revolving credit facilities from February 13, 2019 to May 19, 2021.

11





The 2016 facilities consist of a $2,347.4 million United States dollar-denominated Term Loan A facility and the 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, British pound sterling, Japanese yen or Swiss francs. In connection with entering into the Amendment, the Company paid debt issuance costs of $10.9 million (of which $4.6 million was expensed as debt modification costs and $6.3 million is being amortized over the term of the related debt agreement) and recorded debt extinguishment costs of $11.2 million to write-off previously capitalized debt issuance costs.

The revolving credit facilities also include amounts available for letters of credit. As of April 30, 2017, the Company had $20.8 million of outstanding revolving credit borrowings and $22.6 million of outstanding 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 loans under the Term Loan A 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 2016 facilities) would not exceed 3 to 1 after giving pro forma effect to the incurrence of such increase. The lenders under the 2016 facilities are not required to provide commitments with respect to such additional facilities or increased commitments.

The terms of the Term Loan A facility require the Company to make quarterly repayments of amounts outstanding under the 2016 facilities, which commenced with the calendar quarter ended June 30, 2016. Such amounts equal 5.00% per annum of the principal amount outstanding on the Amendment Date for the first eight calendar quarters following the Amendment Date, 7.50% per annum of the principal amount for the four calendar quarters thereafter and 10.00% per annum of the principal amount for the remaining calendar quarters, in each case paid in equal installments and in each case subject to certain customary adjustments, with the balance due on the maturity date of the Term Loan A facility.

The Company made payments of $50.0 million and $51.9 million during the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2017 and May 1, 2016, respectively, on its term loans under the 2016 and 2014 facilities. As a result of the voluntary repayments made by the Company, as of April 30, 2017, the Company is not required to make a long-term debt repayment until December 2018.

The Company’s obligations under the 2016 facilities are guaranteed by substantially all of its existing and future direct and indirect United States subsidiaries, with certain exceptions. Obligations of the European borrower under the 2016 facilities are guaranteed by the Company, substantially all of the Company’s existing and future direct and indirect United States subsidiaries (with certain exceptions) and Tommy Hilfiger Europe B.V., one of the Company’s wholly owned subsidiaries. The Company and its United States subsidiary guarantors have pledged certain of their assets as security for the obligations under the 2016 facilities.

The outstanding borrowings under the 2016 facilities are prepayable at any time without penalty (other than customary breakage costs). The terms of the 2016 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 that exceeds the voluntary debt payments the Company has made during the applicable year, which percentage is based upon its net leverage ratio during the relevant fiscal period.

The United States dollar-denominated borrowings under the 2016 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% or (b) an adjusted Eurocurrency rate, calculated in a manner set forth in the 2016 facilities.

The Canadian dollar-denominated borrowings under the 2016 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

12




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 2016 facilities.

The borrowings under the 2016 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 2016 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. After the date of delivery of the compliance certificate and financial statements with respect to each of the Company’s fiscal quarters, the applicable margin for borrowings under the Term Loan A facility and the revolving credit facilities is subject to adjustment based upon the Company’s net leverage ratio.

The 2016 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 the Company’s assets and those of certain of the Company’s subsidiaries, as security for the obligations under the 2016 facilities; and a change in control (as defined in the 2016 facilities).

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, including the 2016 facilities, to fixed rate debt. Such agreement remains outstanding with a notional amount of $849.4 million as of April 30, 2017, and is now converting a portion of the Company’s variable rate debt obligation under the 2016 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 the Company 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 to fixed rate debt and applied to debt incurred under its then outstanding facilities and, subsequently, to the 2014 facilities and the 2016 facilities. Under the terms of the agreement for the then-outstanding notional amount, the Company’s exposure to fluctuations in the one-month LIBOR was eliminated and the Company paid a fixed rate of 0.604%, plus the current applicable margin. The agreement expired on August 17, 2016.

The notional amount of any outstanding interest rate swap will be adjusted according to a pre-set schedule during the term of the applicable swap 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.

The 2016 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 its 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 2016 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

13




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 its other debt. If the Company were 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

The Company has outstanding $700.0 million principal amount of 4 1/2% senior notes due December 15, 2022. The Company paid $16.3 million of fees during 2013 in connection with the issuance of these notes, which are amortized over the term of the notes. 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 that 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.

3 5/8% Euro Senior Notes Due 2024

On June 20, 2016, the Company issued €350.0 million euro-denominated principal amount of 3 5/8% senior notes due July 15, 2024. Interest on the notes is payable in euros. The Company paid €6.4 million (approximately $7.3 million based on exchange rates in effect on the payment date) of fees during the second quarter of 2016 in connection with the issuance of these notes, which are amortized over the term of the notes. The Company may redeem some or all of these notes at any time prior to April 15, 2024 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 April 15, 2024 at their principal amount plus any accrued and unpaid interest.

Substantially all of the Company’s assets have been pledged as collateral to secure the Company’s obligations under its senior secured credit facilities, the 7 3/4% debentures due 2023 and contingent purchase price payments to Mr. Calvin Klein as discussed in Note 7, “Goodwill.”

10. INCOME TAXES

The effective income tax rates for the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2017 and May 1, 2016 were 17.0% and 12.8%, respectively.
The effective income tax rate for the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2017 was lower than the United States statutory rate due to the benefit of overall lower tax rates in certain international jurisdictions where the Company files tax returns.
The effective income tax rate for the thirteen weeks ended May 1, 2016 was lower than the United States statutory rate due to the benefit of overall lower tax rates in certain international jurisdictions where the Company files tax returns. Also contributing to the lower effective income tax rate in the thirteen weeks ended May 1, 2016 was the benefit of certain discrete items, including the lower tax rate applicable to the pre-tax gain recorded to write-up the Company’s equity investment in TH China to fair value prior to the acquisition closing.
11. DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

Cash Flow Hedges

The Company has exposure to changes in foreign currency exchange rates related to anticipated cash flows associated with certain international inventory purchases. 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 term loans under the 2016 facilities. The Company has entered into interest rate swap agreements to hedge against a portion of this exposure. Please see Note 9, “Debt,” for a further discussion of the Company’s facilities and these agreements.


14




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 (“AOCL”). The cash flows from such hedges are presented in the same category in the Company’s 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 April 30, 2017 and May 1, 2016.

Net Investment Hedge

The Company has exposure to changes in foreign currency exchange rates related to the value of its investments in foreign subsidiaries denominated in a currency other than the United States dollar. To hedge against a portion of this exposure, during the second quarter of 2016, the Company designated the carrying amount of its €350.0 million euro-denominated principal amount of 3 5/8% senior notes due 2024 (the “foreign currency borrowings”) that it had issued in the United States as a net investment hedge of its investments in certain of its foreign subsidiaries that use the euro as their functional currency. Please see Note 9, “Debt,” for a further discussion of the Company’s foreign currency borrowings.

The Company records the foreign currency borrowings at carrying value in its Consolidated Balance Sheets. The carrying value of the foreign currency borrowings is remeasured at the end of each reporting period to reflect changes in the foreign currency exchange spot rate. Since the foreign currency borrowings are designated as a net investment hedge, such remeasurement is recorded in equity as a component of AOCL. The fair value and the carrying value of the foreign currency borrowings designated as a net investment hedge were $398.8 million and $376.3 million, respectively, as of April 30, 2017 and $384.1 million and $367.5 million, respectively, as of January 29, 2017. The Company evaluates the effectiveness of its net investment hedge as of the beginning of each quarter. No amounts were excluded from effectiveness testing. There was no ineffective portion of the net investment hedge during the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2017.

Undesignated Contracts

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 transactions and intercompany loans that are not of a long-term investment nature. Any gains and losses that are immediately recognized in earnings on such contracts are largely offset by the remeasurement of the underlying intercompany balances.

In addition, the Company has exposure to changes in foreign currency exchange rates related to the translation of the earnings of its subsidiaries denominated in a currency other than the United States dollar. To hedge against a portion of this exposure, beginning in the second quarter of 2016, the Company entered into several foreign currency option contracts. These contracts represent the Company’s purchase of euro put/United States dollar call options and Chinese yuan renminbi put/United States dollar call options.

The Company’s foreign currency option contracts are also undesignated contracts. As such, the changes in the fair value of these foreign currency option contracts are recognized immediately in earnings. This mitigates the effect of a strengthening United States dollar against the euro and Chinese yuan renminbi on the reporting of the Company’s euro-denominated and Chinese yuan renminbi-denominated earnings, respectively.

The Company does not use derivative or non-derivative financial instruments for trading or speculative purposes.

A net gain in AOCL on foreign currency forward exchange contracts at April 30, 2017 of $19.8 million is estimated to be reclassified in the next 12 months in the Company’s Consolidated Income Statement to costs of goods sold as the underlying inventory hedged by such forward exchange contracts is sold. In addition, a net loss in AOCL for interest rate contracts at April 30, 2017 of $4.0 million is estimated to be reclassified to interest expense within the next 12 months. Amounts recognized in AOCL for foreign currency borrowings would be recognized in earnings only upon the sale or liquidation of the hedged net investment.

12. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

The Financial Accounting Standards Board (“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.

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 value of the interest rate contracts is based on observable interest rate yield curves and represents the expected discounted cash flows underlying the financial instruments. The fair value of the foreign currency option contracts is estimated based on external valuation models, which use the original strike price, current foreign currency exchange rates, the implied volatility in foreign currency exchange rates and length of time to expiration as inputs.

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 six consecutive 12-month periods. 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

17




contingent purchase price payments of $0.6 million, $0.6 million, $0.6 million, $0.4 million and $0.2 million during 2016, 2015, 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 in the Company’s Consolidated Income Statements.

The following table presents the change in the Level 3 contingent purchase price payment liability during the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2017 and May 1, 2016:

The fair values of cash and cash equivalents and short-term borrowings approximate their carrying amounts 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. The carrying amounts of long-term debt reflect the unamortized portions of debt issuance costs and the original issue discounts.

13. STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION

The Company grants stock-based awards under its 2006 Stock Incentive Plan (the “2006 Plan”). The 2006 Plan replaced certain other prior stock option plans. These other plans terminated upon the 2006 Plan’s initial stockholder approval in June 2006. 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.

18





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; (vii) performance share units (“PSUs”); and (viii) 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, performance periods and performance measures, and such other terms and conditions as the plan committee determines.

Through April 30, 2017, the Company has granted under the 2006 Plan (i) service-based NQs, RSUs and restricted stock; (ii) contingently issuable PSUs; 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, 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. 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.

Net income for the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2017 and May 1, 2016 included $8.7 million and $10.3 million, respectively, of pre-tax expense related to stock-based compensation, with related recognized income tax benefits of $2.7 million and $2.8 million, respectively.

During the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2017, the Company adopted an update to accounting guidance that simplifies several aspects of accounting for share-based payment award transactions, which resulted in the Company’s election to recognize forfeitures as they occur rather than continue to estimate expected forfeitures in determining compensation expense. This accounting change was applied on a modified retrospective basis and resulted in a cumulative-effect adjustment to decrease beginning retained earnings by $0.8 million, with an offsetting increase to additional paid in capital of $1.1 million and an increase to deferred tax assets of $0.3 million. Please see Note 20, “Recent Accounting Guidance,” for a further discussion.

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 April 30, 2017 and May 1, 2016 were $5.5 million and $4.1 million, respectively. As a result of the Company’s adoption of the update discussed above, the Company recognized $0.1 million of tax deficiencies related to share-based payments in its provision for income taxes for the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2017. Prior to the adoption of this update, the Company recognized excess tax benefits or tax deficiencies in equity as a component of additional paid in capital.

Stock Options

Stock options currently outstanding are generally 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 2006 Plan). Such options are 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 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 April 30, 2017 and May 1, 2016:

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

19




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. The Company will continue to evaluate the appropriateness of utilizing such method.

Restricted Stock Units

RSUs granted to employees since 2016 generally vest in four equal annual installments commencing one year after the date of grant. Outstanding RSUs granted to employees prior to 2016 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) generally provide for accelerated vesting upon the award recipient’s retirement (as defined in the 2006 Plan). The fair value of RSUs is equal to the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant and is expensed over the RSUs’ vesting periods.

Performance Share Units

The Company granted contingently issuable PSUs to certain of the Company’s senior executives during 2015, 2016 and 2017 subject to a three-year performance period. For such awards, the final number of shares to be earned, if any, is contingent upon the Company’s achievement of goals for the applicable performance period, of which 50% is based upon the Company’s absolute stock price growth during the applicable performance period and 50% 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. The Company records expense ratably over the applicable vesting period regardless of whether the market condition is satisfied because the awards are subject to market conditions. The fair value of the awards granted in the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2017 and May 1, 2016 was established for each grant on the grant date using the Monte Carlo simulation model, which was based on the following assumptions:

15. STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

The Company’s Board of Directors authorized a $500.0 million three-year stock repurchase program effective June 3, 2015. On March 21, 2017, the Board of Directors authorized a $750.0 million increase to the program and extended the program to June 3, 2020. Repurchases under the program may be made from time to time over the period through open market purchases, accelerated share repurchase programs, privately negotiated transactions or other methods, as the Company deems appropriate. Purchases are made based on a variety of factors, such as price, corporate requirements and overall market conditions, applicable legal requirements and limitations, restrictions under the Company’s debt arrangements, trading restrictions under the Company’s insider trading policy and other relevant factors. The program may be modified by the Board of Directors, including to increase or decrease the repurchase limitation or extend, suspend, or terminate the program, at any time, without prior notice.

During the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2017 and May 1, 2016, the Company purchased 0.6 million shares and 0.6 million shares, respectively, of its common stock under the program in open market transactions for $59.7 million and $50.5 million, respectively. As of April 30, 2017, the repurchased shares were held as treasury stock and $749.1 million of the authorization remained available for future share repurchases.

Treasury stock activity also includes shares that were withheld principally in conjunction with the settlement of vested restricted stock, RSUs and PSUs to satisfy tax withholding requirements.

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 April 30, 2017 and May 1, 2016 and, therefore, were excluded from the calculation of diluted net income per common share for the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2017 and May 1, 2016. The maximum number of potentially dilutive shares that could be issued upon vesting for such awards was 0.4 million and 0.9 million as of April 30, 2017 and May 1, 2016, respectively. These amounts were also excluded from the computation of weighted average potentially dilutive securities in the table above.

17. NONCASH INVESTING AND FINANCING TRANSACTIONS

The Company recorded increases to goodwill of $13.2 million and $12.3 million during the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2017 and May 1, 2016, 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 April 30, 2017 and May 1, 2016, the Company paid $12.5 million and $12.8 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.

Omitted from purchases of property, plant and equipment in the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows for the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2017 and May 1, 2016 were $0.5 million and $2.3 million, respectively, of assets acquired through capital leases.

Omitted from acquisition of treasury shares in the Company’s Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows for the thirteen weeks ended May 1, 2016 were $2.2 million of shares repurchased under the stock repurchase program for which the trades occurred but remained unsettled as of May 1, 2016.

The Company completed during the first quarter of 2016 the acquisition of TH China. Included in the acquisition consideration was the elimination of a $2.8 million pre-acquisition receivable owed to the Company by TH China.

19. GUARANTEES

The Company is deemed to have guaranteed lease payments for substantially all G. H. Bass & Co. (“Bass”) retail stores included in the sale of substantially all of the assets of the Company’s Bass business in the fourth quarter of 2013 pursuant to the terms of noncancelable leases expiring on various dates through 2022. These obligations deemed to be guaranteed include minimum rent payments and relate to leases that commenced prior to the sale of the Bass assets. In certain instances, the Company’s obligations remain in effect when an option is exercised to extend the term of the lease. The maximum amount deemed to have been guaranteed for all leases as of April 30, 2017 was $21.6 million and the Company has the right to seek recourse from the buyer of the Bass assets for the full amount. The liability for the guaranteed lease payments as of April 30, 2017, January 29, 2017 and May 1, 2016 was $1.0 million, $1.1 million and $1.8 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 April 30, 2017 was approximately $11.9 million, which is subject to exchange rate fluctuation. The guarantees are in effect for the entire terms of the respective obligations. The liability for these guarantee obligations was immaterial as of April 30, 2017, January 29, 2017 and May 1, 2016.

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.

20. RECENT ACCOUNTING GUIDANCE

Recently Adopted Accounting Guidance

The FASB issued in July 2015 an update to accounting guidance to simplify the measurement of inventory. The update requires an entity to measure inventory within the scope of the guidance at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Net realizable value is the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of business less reasonably predictable costs of completion, disposal and transportation. The update does not apply to inventory measured using last-in, first-out or the retail inventory methods. Previously, all inventory was measured at the lower of cost or market. The Company adopted this update in the first quarter of 2017 and it did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

The FASB issued in March 2016 an update to accounting guidance to simplify several aspects of accounting for share-based payment award transactions, including the accounting for forfeitures, income taxes and statutory tax withholding requirements, as well as classification of these transactions in the statement of cash flows. The Company adopted this update in the first quarter of 2017. With respect to accounting for forfeitures, the Company has elected to recognize forfeitures as they occur rather than continue to estimate expected forfeitures in determining compensation expense. This accounting change was applied on a modified retrospective basis and resulted in a cumulative-effect adjustment to decrease beginning retained earnings by $0.8 million, with an offsetting increase to additional paid in capital of $1.1 million and an increase to deferred tax assets of $0.3 million. With respect to the accounting for income taxes, this update requires, on a prospective basis, recognition of excess tax benefits and tax deficiencies (resulting from an increase or decrease in the fair value of an award from grant date to the vesting or exercise date) in the provision for income taxes as a discrete item in the quarterly period in which they occur. Prior to the adoption of this update, the Company recognized excess tax benefits or tax deficiencies in equity as a component of additional paid in capital. During the thirteen weeks ended April 30, 2017, the Company recognized in income tax expense a discrete tax expense of $0.1 million related to tax deficiencies. In addition, excess tax benefits are now classified as an operating activity in the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows instead of as a financing activity, and such classification has been applied on a retrospective basis to all periods presented. As a result, excess tax benefits of $0.1 million

27



for the first quarter of 2016 was reclassified from financing activities to operating activities. The update also requires that the value of shares withheld from employees upon vesting of stock awards in order to satisfy any applicable tax withholding requirements are presented within financing activities in the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows, which is consistent with the Company’s historical presentation, and therefore had no impact to the Company.

Accounting Guidance Issued But Not Adopted as of April 30, 2017

The FASB issued in May 2014 guidance that supersedes most of the current revenue recognition requirements. The core principle of the 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 August 2015, the FASB approved a one year delay to the required adoption date of the standard, which makes it effective for the Company no later than the first quarter of 2018, with adoption in 2017 permitted. In 2016, the FASB issued several amendments to clarify various aspects of the implementation guidance. The new standard is required to be applied retrospectively to each prior reporting period (full retrospective method) or retrospectively with the cumulative effect of initially applying the standard recognized as an adjustment to opening retained earnings at the date of initial adoption (modified retrospective method).

The Company formed a global, cross-functional project team to analyze the impacts of the guidance across all of its revenue streams. This included review of current accounting policies and practices to identify potential differences that would result from applying the guidance. The majority of the Company’s revenue is generated from sales of finished products, which will continue to be recognized when control is transferred to the customer. The Company’s assessment included an evaluation of the impact that the guidance will have on the Company’s accounting for royalty and advertising revenue, loyalty programs and gift cards. Under the guidance, the Company’s royalty and advertising revenue will continue to be recognized over time. However, the Company is still assessing the impact of decisions reached by the FASB Transition Resource Group in November 2016 on the treatment of minimum guarantees in licensing arrangements, which may affect the timing of the Company’s recognition of royalty and advertising revenue. For loyalty programs, the Company records costs associated with such programs ratably as a cost of goods sold based on enrolled customers’ spending. Under the guidance, the revenue associated with loyalty awards will be initially deferred when the loyalty awards are earned and recognized, along with the related cost of goods sold, as the loyalty awards are redeemed or expire. Revenue for the unredeemed portion of gift cards, which is currently recognized when the likelihood of redemption becomes remote, will be recognized under the guidance proportionately over the estimated customer redemption period, subject to the constraint that it must be highly probable that a significant reversal of revenue will not occur. While the Company’s assessment of the impacts of the guidance is still in process, the adoption of the guidance is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements. The Company plans to adopt the standard in the first quarter of 2018 using the modified retrospective method.

The FASB issued in January 2016 an update to accounting guidance for the recognition and measurement of financial instruments. The update requires equity investments that are not accounted for under the equity method of accounting to be measured at fair value with changes recognized in net income and updates certain presentation and disclosure requirements. The update will be effective for the Company in the first quarter of 2018 with limited early adoption permitted. The adoption is not expected to have any impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements as the Company does not currently have such investments.

The FASB issued in February 2016 a new accounting standard on leases. The new standard, among other changes, will require lessees to recognize a right-of-use asset and a lease liability in the balance sheet for most leases. The lease liability will be measured at the present value of the lease payments over the lease term. The right-of-use asset will be measured at the lease liability amount, adjusted for lease prepayments, lease incentives received and the lessee’s initial direct costs (e.g., commissions). The guidance will be effective for the Company in the first quarter of 2019 with early adoption permitted. The adoption will require a modified retrospective approach for leases that exist or are entered into after the beginning of the earliest period presented. The Company is currently evaluating the standard to determine the impact of the adoption on its consolidated financial statements but expects that the standard will result in a significant increase to its other assets and other liabilities.

The FASB issued in August 2016 an update to accounting guidance to clarify and provide specific guidance on how certain cash receipts and cash payments are classified in the statement of cash flows with the objective of reducing existing diversity in practice with respect to these items. Among the types of cash flows addressed are payments for costs related to debt prepayments or extinguishments, payments of contingent consideration after a business combination and distributions from equity method investees. The update will be effective for the Company in the first quarter of 2018, with early adoption permitted. Retrospective adoption is required. Upon adoption, contingent purchase price payments that are currently classified

28



as cash flows from investing activities will be classified as cash flows from operating activities in the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. Otherwise, the adoption of the update is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

The FASB issued in October 2016 an update to accounting guidance to simplify income tax accounting on intercompany sales or transfers of assets other than inventory. The existing guidance requires entities to defer the income tax effect of intercompany transfers of assets until the asset has been sold to an outside party or otherwise recognized. The update requires companies to immediately recognize in their income statement the income tax effects of an intercompany sale or transfer of an asset other than inventory. The update will be effective for the Company in the first quarter of 2018, with early adoption permitted as of the beginning of an annual period. Entities are required to apply the update using a modified retrospective approach with a cumulative catch-up adjustment to opening retained earnings in the period of adoption. As of April 30, 2017, the Company had deferred charges of $7.5 million related to intercompany sales and transfers of assets recorded in other assets. Upon adoption of this update, other assets will be reduced by the then current amount of deferred charges with a corresponding adjustment to opening retained earnings.

The FASB issued in November 2016 an update to accounting guidance to clarify and provide specific guidance on the cash flow classifications and presentation of changes in restricted cash. The update requires that restricted cash be included with cash and cash equivalents when reconciling the beginning of period and end of period total amounts shown in the statement of cash flows. The update will be effective for the Company in the first quarter of 2018, with early adoption permitted. Retrospective adoption is required. The adoption is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows.

The FASB issued in January 2017 an update to accounting guidance to revise the definition of a business. The update requires that when substantially all of the fair value of the gross assets acquired (or disposed of) is concentrated in a single identifiable asset or a group of identifiable assets, the set of assets would not represent a business. Also, in order to be considered a business, an acquisition would have to include an input and a substantive process that together significantly contribute to the ability to produce outputs. Under the update, fewer sets of assets are expected to be considered businesses. The update will be effective for the Company in the first quarter of 2018, with early adoption permitted. The Company will apply the update to applicable transactions after the adoption date. The impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements will depend on the facts and circumstances of any specific future transactions.

The FASB issued in January 2017 an update to the accounting guidance to simplify the testing for goodwill impairment. The update eliminates the requirement to calculate the implied fair value of goodwill to measure the amount of impairment loss, if any, under the second step of the current goodwill impairment test. Under the update, the goodwill impairment loss would be measured as the amount by which a reporting unit’s carrying value exceeds its fair value, not to exceed the carrying amount of goodwill. The update will be effective for the Company in the first quarter of 2020, with early adoption permitted for interim or annual goodwill impairment tests performed after January 1, 2017. Prospective adoption is required. The adoption is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

The FASB issued in March 2017 an update to the accounting guidance to change the presentation of net periodic pension cost and net periodic postretirement benefit cost. The new guidance requires employers to report the service cost component of pension and postretirement net benefit cost in the same line item as other compensation costs arising from services rendered by the employees during the applicable period. The other components of net benefit cost are required to be presented in the income statement separately from the service component and outside a subtotal of income from operations, if one is presented. Additionally, only the service cost component of net benefit cost is eligible for capitalization, when applicable. The update will be effective for the Company in the first quarter of 2018, with early adoption permitted. Retrospective adoption is required for the presentation updates and prospective adoption is required for the capitalization update. The update will impact the presentation of net periodic pension cost and net periodic postretirement benefit cost within income before interest and taxes in the Company’s Consolidated Income Statements. Otherwise, the adoption of this update will not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

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, Olga and, as of March 30, 2017, True&Co. 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, True&Co. and Speedo and to other brand names are to registered and common law 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 history going back over 135 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 Ltd.), Warner’s, Olga and, as of March 30, 2017, True&Co. We also license brands from third parties primarily for use on dress shirts and neckwear offered in the United States and Canada.

Our business strategy is to sell our brands at multiple price points and in multiple channels of distribution and regions. This enables us to offer products to a broad range of consumers, while minimizing competition among our brands and reducing our reliance on any one demographic group, merchandise preference, price point, distribution channel or region. We also license our brands to third parties and joint ventures for product categories and in jurisdictions where we believe our partners’ expertise can better serve our businesses.

OPERATIONS OVERVIEW

We generate net sales from (i) the wholesale distribution to retailers, franchisees, licensees and distributors of dress shirts, neckwear, sportswear, jeanswear, performance apparel, intimate apparel, underwear, swim products, handbags, accessories, footwear and other related products under owned and licensed trademarks, including through digital commerce sites operated by our wholesale partners and pure play digital commerce retailers, and (ii) the sale of certain of these products through (a) approximately 1,600 Company-operated free-standing retail store locations worldwide under our CALVIN KLEIN, Tommy Hilfiger and certain of our heritage brands, (b) approximately 1,200 Company-operated concessions/shop-in-shops worldwide under our CALVIN KLEIN and Tommy Hilfiger trademarks, and (c) digital commerce sites in certain countries under our CALVIN KLEIN and Tommy Hilfiger trademarks and in the United States through our SpeedoUSA.com digital commerce site and, since March 30, 2017, through our TrueandCo.com digital commerce site. Additionally, we generate royalty, advertising and other revenue from fees for licensing the use of our trademarks.

On April 13, 2016, we completed the acquisition of the 55% of the ownership interests in TH Asia, Ltd. (“TH China”), our former joint venture for Tommy Hilfiger in China, that we did not already own (the “TH China acquisition”). As a result of the TH China acquisition, we now operate directly our Tommy Hilfiger business in this high-growth market. The total consideration for the acquisition was $161 million (including the elimination of a $3 million pre-acquisition receivable owed to us by TH China), net of cash acquired of $105 million. We recorded a net pre-tax gain of $123 million in the first quarter of 2016, including a noncash gain of $153 million to write-up our equity investment to fair value prior to the acquisition closing and costs of $30 million, a portion of which was noncash and related to valuation adjustments and amortization of short-lived assets. We recorded pre-tax charges of $7 million in the first quarter of 2017 and expect to incur additional pre-tax charges of approximately $18 million during the remainder of 2017, primarily consisting of noncash amortization of short-lived assets.

On November 30, 2016, we formed a joint venture in Mexico (“PVH Mexico”), in which we own a 49% economic interest. The joint venture was formed by merging our wholly owned subsidiary that principally operated and managed our Calvin Klein business in Mexico with a wholly owned subsidiary of Grupo Axo, S.A.P.I. de C.V. (“Grupo Axo”) that distributes certain

31




Tommy Hilfiger brand products in Mexico. In connection with the formation of PVH Mexico, we deconsolidated our wholly owned subsidiary (the “Mexico deconsolidation”).

On March 20, 2017, we entered into agreements for a transaction to restructure our supply chain relationship with Li & Fung Trading Limited (“Li & Fung”). The transaction establishes a new strategic partnership with Li & Fung to provide services to us and also provides for the termination of our non-exclusive buying agency agreement with Li & Fung (the “Li & Fung termination”). Such transaction is currently expected to close in the third quarter of 2017. We recorded pre-tax charges of $54 million in the first quarter of 2017 in connection with the Li & Fung termination and expect to incur additional pre-tax charges of approximately $1 million during the remainder of 2017.

On March 30, 2017, we acquired True & Co., a direct-to-consumer intimate apparel digital commerce retailer. This acquisition enables us to participate further in the fast-growing online channel and provides a platform to increase innovation, data-driven decisions and speed in the way we serve our consumers across our channels of distribution. The total consideration for the acquisition was $28 million, net of $400,000 of cash acquired.

We recorded pre-tax charges of $7 million in the first quarter of 2017, including noncash depreciation expense, in connection with the relocation of our Tommy Hilfiger office in New York, which is currently expected to be completed by the end of the third quarter of 2017. We expect to incur additional pre-tax charges of approximately $13 million during the remainder of 2017.

We recorded a pre-tax loss of $9 million in the first quarter of 2017 in connection with the noncash settlement of certain of our benefit obligations related to our retirement plans as a result of a group annuity purchased for certain participants, under which such obligations were transferred to an insurer.

We recorded pre-tax charges of $2 million in the first quarter of 2017 in connection with the consolidation of our warehouse and distribution network in North America. We expect to incur additional pre-tax charges of approximately $13 million during the remainder of 2017.

We recorded pre-tax charges of $7 million in the first quarter of 2016 in connection with the Warnaco integration and related restructuring.

Our Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger businesses each have substantial international components that expose us to significant 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 earnings are unfavorably impacted during times of a strengthening United States dollar against the foreign currencies in which we generate significant revenue and earnings and favorably impacted during times of a weakening United States dollar against those currencies. In 2016, approximately 50% of our revenue was subject to foreign currency translation. We currently expect the strength of the United States dollar and resulting unfavorable impact on our revenue and earnings to continue in 2017, although to a lesser degree than in 2016. To hedge against a portion of this exposure, beginning in the second quarter of 2016, we entered into several foreign currency option contracts. These contracts represent our purchase of euro put/United States dollar call options and Chinese yuan renminbi put/United States dollar call options. Additionally, there is a transaction impact on our financial results because inventory typically is purchased in United States dollars by our foreign subsidiaries. As with translation, during times of a strengthening United States dollar, our results of operations will be negatively impacted from these transactions as the increased local currency value of inventory results in a higher cost of goods sold in local currency when the goods are sold. We use foreign currency forward exchange contracts to hedge against a portion of the exposure related to this transaction impact. The contracts cover at least 70% of the projected inventory purchases in United States dollars by our foreign subsidiaries. These contracts are generally entered into 12 months in advance of the related inventory purchases. Therefore, the unfavorable impact of a strengthening United States dollar on the cost of inventory purchases covered by these contracts may be realized in our earnings in the year following their inception, as the underlying inventory hedged by the contracts is sold. As such, the unfavorable impact of a strengthening United States dollar against most major currencies in the latter part of 2014 and through 2016, particularly the euro, negatively impacted our gross margin during 2016 and, to a much lesser extent, during the first quarter of 2017 and is expected to have a negative impact on our earnings for the remainder of 2017.

Retail comparable store sales discussed below refer to sales for retail stores that have been open for at least 12 months. Sales for retail stores that are closed during the year are excluded from the calculation of retail comparable store sales. Sales for retail stores that are either relocated, materially altered in size or closed for a certain number of consecutive days for renovation are also excluded from the calculation of retail comparable store sales until such stores have been in their new location or in their newly renovated state for at least 12 months. Sales from our Company-operated digital commerce sites are included within

32




retail comparable store sales for those businesses and regions that have operated the related digital commerce site for at least 12 months. Retail comparable store sales are based on comparable weeks and local currencies.

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 first quarter of 2017 are not necessarily indicative of those for a full fiscal year.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Thirteen Weeks Ended April 30, 2017 Compared With Thirteen Weeks Ended May 1, 2016

Total Revenue

Total revenue in the first quarter of 2017 was $1.989 billion as compared to $1.918 billion in the first quarter of the prior year. The increase in revenue of $71 million was due principally to the net effect of the following items:

The net addition of $33 million of revenue attributable to our Calvin Klein International and Calvin Klein North America segments, which included a decrease of approximately $8 million related to the impact of foreign currency translation. Calvin Klein International segment revenue increased 11% (including a 2% negative foreign currency impact) due principally to continued strength in Europe and China. International comparable store sales increased 3%. Revenue in the Calvin Klein North America segment decreased 1% principally driven by the Mexico deconsolidation and a 5% decline in North America comparable store sales.

The net addition of $50 million of revenue attributable to our Tommy Hilfiger International and Tommy Hilfiger North America segments, which included a decrease of approximately $22 million related to the impact of foreign currency translation. Tommy Hilfiger International segment revenue increased 15% (including a 4% negative foreign currency impact) driven principally by outstanding performance across all channels and markets in Europe, as well as the inclusion of a full quarter of revenue from the China business as a result of the TH China acquisition. Tommy Hilfiger International comparable store sales increased 14%. Revenue in the Tommy Hilfiger North America segment decreased 5% principally due to the discontinuation of our directly operated womenswear wholesale business in the United States and Canada during the fourth quarter of 2016 in connection with the licensing of this business to G-III Apparel Group, Ltd. (the “G-III license”) and a 4% comparable store sales decline.

The net reduction of $12 million of revenue attributable to our Heritage Brands Retail and Heritage Brands Wholesale segments, principally resulting from a planned shift in the timing of shipments from the first quarter into the second quarter as compared to the prior year. Comparable stores sales were flat.

We currently expect that revenue for the full year 2017 will increase approximately 3% compared to 2016, inclusive of a negative impact of approximately 2% related to foreign currency translation. Negatively impacting revenue in 2017 as compared to 2016 is a reduction in revenue due to the effects of the Mexico deconsolidation and the G-III license. Revenue for the Calvin Klein business is currently expected to increase approximately 6% compared to 2016, inclusive of a negative impact of approximately 1% related to foreign currency translation, as well as the negative impact of the Mexico deconsolidation. Revenue for the Tommy Hilfiger business is currently expected to increase approximately 2% compared to 2016, inclusive of a negative impact of approximately 2% related to foreign currency translation, as well as the negative impact of the G-III license. Revenue for the Heritage Brands business is currently expected to be flat compared to 2016.

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, such as inbound freight costs, purchasing and receiving costs and inspection costs. Also included as costs of goods sold are the amounts recognized on foreign currency forward exchange contracts as the underlying inventory hedged by such forward exchange contracts is sold. Warehousing and distribution expenses are included in selling, general and administrative expenses. 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 2017 was $1.081 billion, or 54.3% of total revenue, as compared to $1.007 billion, or 52.5% of total revenue in the first quarter of the prior year. The 180 basis point increase was principally driven by (i) a favorable mix of business due to faster growth in our Calvin Klein International and Tommy Hilfiger International segments than in our North America segments, as our International segments generally carry higher gross margins, (ii) gross margin improvements in our North America businesses due to decreased promotional selling as compared to the first quarter of the prior year, (iii) the addition of TH China in April 2016, which achieved a significantly higher gross margin than the average gross margin for our overall business, and (iv) a gross margin improvement related to the G-III license and the Mexico deconsolidation, as the directly operated Tommy Hilfiger wholesale womenswear business in the United States and Canada and the directly operated business in Mexico were replaced by royalty revenues from the G-III license and PVH Mexico, which carry no cost of goods sold. These increases were partially offset by the unfavorable impact of the stronger United States dollar on our international businesses that purchase inventory in United States dollars, particularly our European businesses, as the increased local currency value of inventory resulted in higher cost of goods in local currency when the goods were sold.

We currently expect that gross margin for the full year 2017 will increase as compared to 2016 due to (i) the impact of expected faster growth in our Calvin Klein International and Tommy Hilfiger International segments than in our North America segments, as our International segments generally carry higher gross margins, (ii) gross margin improvements in our North America businesses principally resulting from decreased promotional selling compared to 2016 and (iii) a gross margin improvement related to the G-III license and the Mexico deconsolidation, as the directly operated Tommy Hilfiger wholesale womenswear business in the United States and Canada and the directly operated business in Mexico were replaced by royalty revenues from the G-III license and PVH Mexico, which carry no cost of goods sold. We currently expect that these gross margin increases will be partially offset by the unfavorable impact of the stronger United States dollar on our international businesses that purchase inventory in United States dollars.

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

SG&A expenses in the first quarter of 2017 were $968 million, or 48.7% of total revenue, as compared to $865 million, or 45.1% of total revenue in the first quarter of the prior year. The 360 basis point increase in SG&A expenses as a percentage of total revenue was principally attributable to (i) an unfavorable mix of business due to faster growth in our Calvin Klein International and Tommy Hilfiger International segments than in our North America segments, as our International segments generally carry higher SG&A expenses as percentages of total revenue, (ii) the costs incurred in connection with the Li & Fung termination, (iii) the loss recorded in connection with the noncash settlement of certain of our benefit obligations related to our retirement plans as a result of a group annuity purchased for certain participants, under which such obligations were transferred to an insurer, and (iv) the costs incurred in connection with the relocation of our Tommy Hilfiger office in New York, including noncash depreciation expense. These increases were partially offset by a reduction of costs incurred in connection with (i) the TH China acquisition, a portion of which were noncash valuation adjustments and amortization of short-lived assets, and (ii) the Warnaco integration and related restructuring.

We currently expect that SG&A expenses as a percentage of total revenue for the full year 2017 will increase compared to 2016 due to (i) the impact of expected faster growth in our Calvin Klein International and Tommy Hilfiger International segments than in our North America segments, as our International segments generally carry higher SG&A expenses as percentages of total revenue, (ii) the costs related to the Li & Fung termination, (iii) the costs related to the relocation of our Tommy Hilfiger office in New York, including noncash depreciation expense, and (iv) the costs related to the consolidation of our warehouse and distribution network in North America. Additionally, our expectation of 2017 SG&A expenses includes a $9 million loss recorded in the first quarter in connection with the noncash settlement of certain benefit obligations related to our retirement plans as a result of a group annuity purchased for certain participants, while our 2016 SG&A expenses included a $39 million actuarial gain related to our retirement plans recorded in the fourth quarter. These increases will be partially offset by lower costs expected to be incurred in 2017 as compared to 2016 in connection with the TH China acquisition. Our actual 2017 SG&A expenses may be significantly different than our projections because of expenses associated with our retirement plans. Retirement plan expenses recorded throughout the year are calculated using actuarial valuations that incorporate assumptions

34




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.

Gain to Write-Up Equity Investment in Joint Venture to Fair Value

We recorded a pre-tax noncash gain of $153 million in the first quarter of 2016 to write-up our equity investment in TH China to fair value in connection with the TH China acquisition. Please see Note 3, “Acquisitions,” in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements included in Part 1, Item 1 of this report for further discussion.

Equity in Net Income (Loss) of Unconsolidated Affiliates

The equity in net income of unconsolidated affiliates in the first quarter of 2017 was $400,000 as compared to a loss of $200,000 in the first quarter of the prior year. These amounts relate to our share of income (loss) from our joint ventures for the Tommy Hilfiger brand in China (prior to the TH China acquisition on April 13, 2016), 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 CALVIN KLEIN, Tommy Hilfiger, Warner’s, Olga and Speedo brands in Mexico (since its formation on November 30, 2016). Also included is our share of income (loss) from our investments in the parent company of the Karl Lagerfeld brand (“Karl Lagerfeld”) and, beginning in the third quarter of 2016, in Gazal Corporation Limited (“Gazal”). Our investments in the continuing joint ventures, Karl Lagerfeld and Gazal are being accounted for under the equity method of accounting. Please see the section entitled “Investments in Unconsolidated Affiliates” within “Liquidity and Capital Resources” below for a further discussion.

Interest Expense, Net

Net interest expense of $29 million in the first quarter of 2017 was flat compared to the first quarter of the prior year.

Net interest expense for the full year 2017 is currently expected to be approximately $120 million compared to $115 million in 2016, primarily due to the net impact of the issuance of €350 million of 3 5/8% senior notes in June 2016, partially offset by debt repayments made during 2016 and expected to be made in 2017 and the amendment of our senior secured credit facilities in the second quarter of 2016. Please see the section entitled “Financing Arrangements” within “Liquidity and Capital Resources” below for a further discussion.

Income Taxes

The effective income tax rate for the first quarter of 2017 was 17.0% compared to 12.8% in the first quarter of the prior year.

The effective income tax rate for the first quarter of 2017 was lower than the United States statutory rate due to the benefit of overall lower tax rates in certain international jurisdictions where we file tax returns.

The effective income tax rate for the first quarter of 2016 was lower than the United States statutory rate due to the benefit of overall lower tax rates in certain international jurisdictions where we file tax returns. Also contributing to the lower effective income tax rate in the first quarter of 2016 was the benefit of certain discrete items, including the lower tax rate applicable to the pre-tax gain recorded to write-up our equity investment in TH China to fair value prior to the acquisition closing.

We currently expect that our effective income tax rate for the full year 2017 will be in a range of 15.5% to 16.0%, which is lower than the United States statutory rate principally due to the benefit of overall lower tax rates in certain 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.

Redeemable Non-Controlling Interest

On June 29, 2016, we, along with Arvind Limited (“Arvind”) formed a joint venture in Ethiopia, PVH Arvind Manufacturing Private Limited Company (“PVH Ethiopia”), in which we own a 75% interest. We have consolidated the joint venture in our consolidated financial statements. PVH Ethiopia was formed to operate a manufacturing facility that produces finished products for us for distribution primarily in the United States. The manufacturing facility began operations in the first half of 2017.

35





The net loss attributable to the redeemable non-controlling interest was immaterial for the first quarter of 2017. We currently expect that the net loss attributable to the redeemable non-controlling interest for 2017 will be immaterial. Please refer to 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.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Cash Flow Summary

Cash and cash equivalents at April 30, 2017 was $491 million, a decrease of $239 million from the amount at January 29, 2017 of $730 million. The change in cash and cash equivalents included the impact of (i) $60 million of common stock repurchases under the stock repurchase program, (ii) $50 million of debt repayments and (iii) a $28 million payment made in connection with the acquisition of True & Co., net of $400,000 of cash acquired. The seasonality of our business may result in significant fluctuations in our cash balance between fiscal year-end and subsequent interim periods due to the timing of inventory purchases and peak sales periods. Cash flow for the full year 2017 will be impacted by various factors in addition to those noted below in this “Liquidity and Capital Resources” section, including the amount of debt repayments and stock repurchases we make in 2017.

As of April 30, 2017, approximately $436 million of cash and cash equivalents was held by international subsidiaries whose undistributed earnings are considered permanently reinvested. Our intent is to continue to reinvest these funds in international operations. If management decides at a later date to repatriate these funds to the United States or is required under changes to United States tax law to pay taxes on unrepatriated earnings, we would be required to pay taxes on the applicable amounts based on the applicable United States tax rates.

Operations

Cash used by operating activities was $45 million in the first quarter of 2017 compared to cash provided by operating activities of $109 million in the first quarter of 2016. The decrease in cash provided by operating activities was primarily driven by changes in working capital, including an increase in trade receivables due in part to an increase in wholesale sales.

Capital Expenditures

Our capital expenditures in the first quarter of 2017 were $68 million compared to $46 million in the first quarter of 2016. The increase in capital expenditures was primarily driven by investments in operations and infrastructure, including upgrading and enhancing our digital commerce platforms and systems related to our supply chain and logistics operations. We currently expect that capital expenditures for the full year 2017 will be approximately $400 million. Capital expenditures in 2017 will primarily include expenditures related to the relocation of our Tommy Hilfiger office in New York, as well as significant investments in operations and infrastructure, including upgrading and enhancing our digital commerce platforms and systems related to our supply chain and logistics operations.

Investments in Unconsolidated Affiliates

We own a 50% economic interest in a joint venture, PVH Brands Australia Pty. Limited (“PVH Australia”). PVH Australia licenses from our subsidiaries the rights to distribute and sell certain CALVIN KLEIN, Tommy Hilfiger and Van Heusen brand products in Australia, New Zealand and, in the cases of CALVIN KLEIN and Tommy Hilfiger, other island nations in the South Pacific. Additionally, subsidiaries of PVH Australia license other trademarks for certain product categories. We received a $2 million dividend from PVH Australia during the first quarter of 2017.

We own a 40% economic interest in a joint venture, Tommy Hilfiger do Brasil S.A. (“TH Brazil”). TH Brazil licenses from one of our subsidiaries the rights to the Tommy Hilfiger trademarks in Brazil for certain product categories. We made a payment of $
