Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
(Unaudited)



1. NATURE OF OPERATIONS
Tapestry, Inc. (the "Company") is a leading New York-based house of modern luxury accessories and lifestyle brands. Tapestry owns the Coach, Kate Spade and Stuart Weitzman brands. The Company’s primary product offerings, manufactured by third-party suppliers, include women’s and men’s bags, small leather goods, footwear, ready-to-wear including outerwear, watches, weekend and travel accessories, scarves, eyewear, fragrance, jewelry and other lifestyle products.
The Coach segment includes global sales of Coach brand products to customers through Coach operated stores, including the Internet and concession shop-in-shops, sales to wholesale customers and through independent third party distributors.
The Kate Spade segment includes global sales primarily of kate spade new york brand products to customers through Kate Spade operated stores, including the Internet, sales to wholesale customers, through concession shop-in-shops and through independent third party distributors.
The Stuart Weitzman segment includes global sales of Stuart Weitzman brand products primarily through Stuart Weitzman operated stores, including the Internet, sales to wholesale customers and through numerous independent third party distributors.
2. BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND ORGANIZATION
Interim Financial Statements
These interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") and are unaudited. In the opinion of management, such condensed consolidated financial statements contain all normal and recurring adjustments necessary to present fairly the consolidated financial position, results of operations, comprehensive income (loss) and cash flows of the Company for the interim periods presented. In addition, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. ("U.S. GAAP") have been condensed or omitted from this report as is permitted by the SEC's rules and regulations. However, the Company believes that the disclosures provided herein are adequate to prevent the information presented from being misleading. This report should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto, included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2018 ("fiscal 2018") and other filings filed with the SEC.
The results of operations, cash flows and comprehensive income for the three months ended September 29, 2018 are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the entire fiscal year, which will end on June 29, 2019 ("fiscal 2019"). 
During the first quarter of fiscal 2019, the Company acquired designated assets of its Stuart Weitzman distributor in Southern China and its Kate Spade distributor in Australia. During the first quarter of 2018, the Company completed its acquisition of Kate Spade & Company ("Kate Spade"). During the third quarter of fiscal 2018, the Company acquired designated assets of its Stuart Weitzman distributor in Northern China, entered into an agreement to take operational control of the KS China Co., Limited and KS HMT Co., Limited joint ventures ("Kate Spade Joint Ventures") that operate in mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan in which the Company has 50% interest, and acquired designated assets of its Coach distributor in Australia and New Zealand. The results of operations of each acquired entity have been included in the condensed consolidated financial statements since the respective date of each acquisition.
Fiscal Periods
The Company utilizes a 52-53 week fiscal year ending on the Saturday closest to June 30. Fiscal 2019 will be a 52-week period. Fiscal 2018 ended on June 30, 2018 and was also a 52-week period. The first quarter of fiscal 2019 ended on September 29, 2018 and the first quarter of fiscal 2018 ended on September 30, 2017. These were 13-week periods.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the condensed consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto. Actual results could differ from estimates in amounts that may be material to the financial statements.
Significant estimates inherent in the preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements include reserves for the realizability of inventory; customer returns, end-of-season markdowns and operational chargebacks; useful lives and impairments of long-lived tangible and intangible assets; accounting for income taxes (including the impacts of the new tax legislation) and related uncertain tax positions; accounting for business combinations; the valuation of stock-based compensation awards and related expected forfeiture rates; reserves for restructuring; and reserves for litigation and other contingencies, amongst others.

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (continued)




Principles of Consolidation
These unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and all 100% owned and controlled subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions and balances are eliminated in consolidation.
Reclassifications
Certain reclassifications have been made to the prior periods' financial information in order to conform to the current period's presentation. Beginning in fiscal 2019, the Company changed its expense reporting to more closely align with the organizational structure and management of the business. Accordingly, certain Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses that were reported within our reportable segments in fiscal 2018 are now reflected as Corporate expenses. Refer to Note 17, "Segment Information," for further information.
In addition, certain prior year costs related to compensation of the supply chain function for Kate Spade have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation. These costs amounted to $5.4 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018 and have been reclassified from SG&A expenses to Cost of sales within the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.
3. RECENT ACCOUNTING PROUNOUNCEMENTS
Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2014-09, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers" ("ASU 2014-09"), which provides a single, comprehensive revenue recognition model for all contracts with customers, and contains principles to determine the measurement of revenue and timing of when it is recognized. The model supersedes most existing revenue recognition guidance, and also requires enhanced revenue-related disclosures. The FASB has also issued several related ASUs which provide additional implementation guidance and clarify the requirements of the model.
The Company adopted ASU 2014-09 beginning in the first quarter of fiscal 2019 utilizing the modified retrospective approach. The cumulative effect of initially applying the new standard did not result in a change to opening retained earnings. Prior year comparative information has not been restated and continues to be reported under the accounting standards in effect for those periods. Effects of adoption include balance sheet presentation changes including presentation of estimated returned products and refund liabilities on a gross basis, as well as an increase in deferred revenue related to current year licensing contract activity due to a change in the method of recognizing sales-based royalties. These balance sheet presentation changes resulted in an increase of $6.1 million to Other current assets, a decrease of $5.8 million to Accounts receivable and an increase of $1.8 million to Accrued liabilities. Furthermore, the adoption changed the income statement classification of certain items, primarily related to cooperative advertising allowances and other consideration provided to wholesale customers. The following table compares the reported results in fiscal 2019 under the new standard to the amounts that would have been reported if the standard had not been adopted:

For further information regarding revenue from contracts with customers, refer to Note 4, "Revenue."
In October 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-16, "Intra-Entity Transfers of Assets Other Than Inventory" ("ASU 2016-16"). This ASU requires recognition of income tax consequences of an intra-entity transfer of an asset other than inventory when the transfer occurs, rather than when the asset has been sold to a third party. The Company adopted ASU 2016-16 beginning in the first quarter of fiscal 2019 utilizing the modified retrospective approach, which resulted in a cumulative adjustment of $20.2 million to its opening retained earnings balance. Overall, the adoption of ASU 2016-16 did not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (continued)




Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, "Leases (Topic 842)", which is intended to increase transparency and comparability among companies that enter into leasing arrangements. This ASU requires recognition of lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet for nearly all leases (other than short-term leases), as well as a retrospective recognition and measurement of existing impacted leases. The requirements of the new standard will be effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those annual periods, which for the Company is the first quarter of fiscal 2020. Early adoption is permitted. In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-11, with targeted improvements to the guidance including an additional transition method for the new standard. As a result, the new standard may be applied with a retrospective approach to each prior reporting period with various optional practical expedients, or with the initial application at the adoption with a cumulative-effect adjustment in the opening balance of retained earnings. The Company is currently performing a comprehensive evaluation of the impact of adopting this guidance on its consolidated financial statements and notes thereto, and has not yet determined which transition method will be applied upon adoption. The Company expects the guidance will result in a significant increase to long-term assets and liabilities on its consolidated balance sheets and does not expect it to have a material impact on the consolidated statements of operations. This guidance is not expected to have a material impact on the Company's liquidity.
In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-13, "Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820)" ("ASU 2018-13"), which is intended to improve the effectiveness of fair value disclosures. The ASU removes or modifies certain disclosure requirements related to fair value information, as well as adds new disclosure requirements for Level 3 fair value measurements. The requirements of the new standard will be effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within those annual periods, which for the Company is the first quarter of fiscal 2021. Early adoption is permitted. The company is currently in the process of evaluating the impact that adopting ASU 2018-13 will have on its consolidated financial statements and notes thereto, however, does not expect a material impact resulting from this guidance.
In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-15, "Intangibles - Goodwill and Other - Internal-Use Software (Subtopic 350-40)" ("ASU 2018-15"), which is intended to clarify the accounting for implementation costs of cloud computing arrangements which are deemed to be a service contract rather than a software license. The requirements of the new standard will be effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within those annual periods, which for the Company is the first quarter of fiscal 2021. Early adoption is permitted. The company is currently in the process of evaluating the impact that adopting ASU 2018-15 will have on its consolidated financial statements and notes thereto.

4. REVENUE
The Company recognizes revenue primarily from sales of the products of its brands through retail and wholesale channels, including the Internet. The Company also generates revenue from royalties related to licensing its trademarks, as well as sales in ancillary channels. In all cases, revenue is recognized upon the transfer of control of the promised products or services to the customer, which may be at a point in time or over time. Control is transferred when the customer obtains the ability to direct the use of and obtain substantially all of the remaining benefits from the products or services. The amount of revenue recognized is the amount of consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled, including estimation of sale terms that may create variability in the consideration. Revenue subject to variability is constrained to an amount which will not result in a significant reversal in future periods when the contingency that creates variability is resolved.
The Company recognizes revenue in its retail stores, including concession shop-in-shops, at the point-of-sale when the customer obtains physical possession of the products. Internet revenue from sales of products ordered through the Company's e-commerce sites is recognized upon delivery and receipt of the shipment by its customers and includes shipping and handling charges paid by customers. Retail and Internet revenues are recorded net of estimated returns, which are estimated by developing an expected value based on historical experience. Payment is due at the point of sale.
Gift cards issued by the Company are recorded as a liability until redeemed by the customer, at which point revenue is recognized. The company also uses historical information to estimate the amount of gift card balances that will never be redeemed and recognizes that amount as revenue over time in proportion to actual customer redemptions if the Company does not have a legal obligation to remit unredeemed gift cards to any jurisdiction as unclaimed property.
The Company recognizes revenue within the wholesale channel at the time title passes and risk of loss is transferred to customers, which is generally at the point of shipment of products but may occur upon receipt of the shipment by the customer in certain cases. Payment is generally due 30 to 90 days after shipment. Wholesale revenue is recorded net of estimates for returns, discounts, end-of-season markdowns, cooperative advertising allowances and other consideration provided to the customer. Discounts are based on contract terms with the customer, while cooperative advertising allowances and other consideration may be based on contract terms or negotiated on a case by case basis. Returns and markdowns generally require approval from the Company and are estimated based on historical trends, current season results and inventory positions at the wholesale locations, current market and economic conditions as well as, in select cases, contractual terms. The Company's historical estimates of these variable amounts have not differed materially from actual results.
The Company recognizes licensing revenue over time during the contract period in which licensees are granted access to the Company's trademarks. These arrangements require licensees to pay a sales-based royalty and may include a contractually guaranteed minimum royalty amount. Revenue for contractually guaranteed minimum royalty amounts is recognized ratably over the license year and any excess sales-based royalties are recognized as earned once the minimum royalty threshold is achieved. Payments from the customer are generally due quarterly in an amount based on the licensee's sales of goods bearing the licensed trademarks during the period, which may differ from the amount of revenue recorded during the period thereby generating a contract asset or liability. Contract assets and liabilities and contract costs related to the licensing arrangements are immaterial as the licensing business represents approximately 1% of total net sales in the three months ending September 29, 2018.
The Company has elected a practical expedient not to disclose the remaining performance obligations that are unsatisfied as of the end of the period related to contracts with an original duration of one year or less and variable consideration related to sales-based royalty arrangements. There are no other contracts with transaction price allocated to remaining performance obligations other than future minimum royalties as discussed above, which are not material.
Other practical expedients elected by the Company include (i) assuming no significant financing component exists for any contract with a duration of one year or less, (ii) accounting for shipping and handling as a fulfillment activity within SG&A expense regardless of the timing of the shipment in relation to the transfer of control and (iii) excluding sales and value added tax from the transaction price.

6. RESTRUCTURING ACTIVITIES
Operational Efficiency Plan
During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, the Company announced a plan (the “Operational Efficiency Plan”) to enhance organizational efficiency, update core technology platforms and optimize international supply chain and office locations. The Operational Efficiency Plan was adopted as a result of a strategic review of the Company’s corporate structure which focused on creating an agile and scalable business model.
During the three months ended September 30, 2017, the Company incurred charges of $3.1 million primarily due to technology infrastructure costs and organizational efficiency costs. Total cumulative charges incurred under the Operational Efficiency Plan were $87.4 million. These charges were recorded as Corporate expenses within SG&A expenses within the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. The plan was concluded at the end of fiscal 2018.
There were no remaining liabilities under the Company's Operational Efficiency Plan as of September 29, 2018. The balance of $1.4 million as of June 30, 2018 is included within Accrued liabilities on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
7. ACQUISITIONS
Fiscal 2019 Acquisitions
Distributor Acquisitions
During the first quarter of fiscal 2019, the Company acquired designated assets of its Stuart Weitzman distributor in Southern China and its Kate Spade distributor in Australia.
The aggregate purchase consideration for the two acquisitions was $18.0 million, all of which will be paid in cash. Of the cash consideration, $15.7 million was paid during the first quarter of fiscal 2019 and the remaining will be paid in the future. Of the total purchase consideration of $18.0 million, $11.1 million of net assets were recorded at their fair values, and the excess of

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (continued)




the purchase consideration over the fair value of the net assets acquired was recorded as non-tax deductible goodwill in the amount of $6.9 million, all of which was assigned to the Stuart Weitzman segment.
The purchase price allocation for these assets acquired and liabilities assumed is expected to be updated during the second quarter of fiscal 2019. The pro forma results are not presented for these acquisitions as they are immaterial.
Fiscal 2018 Acquisitions
Kate Spade and Company Acquisition
On July 11, 2017, the Company completed its acquisition of Kate Spade & Company for $18.50 per share for a total purchase price of $2.40 billion. As a result, Kate Spade became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.
The aggregate cash paid in connection with the acquisition of Kate Spade was $2.39 billion (or $2.32 billion net of cash acquired). Consideration also included $5.3 million as a result of the conversion of unvested equity awards held by Kate Spade employees. The Company funded the acquisition through cash on-hand, as well as debt proceeds as described in Note 12, "Debt."
The Company accounted for the acquisition of Kate Spade under the acquisition method of accounting for business combinations. Accordingly, the cost was allocated to the underlying net assets based on their respective fair values. The excess of the purchase price over the estimated fair value of the net assets acquired was recorded as goodwill, which consists largely of the synergies expected from the acquisition.
The purchase price allocation for the assets acquired and liabilities assumed is complete. The following table summarizes the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed as of the acquisition date:

(1) Included a step-up adjustment of $67.5 million, which was amortized over 4 months.
(2) The majority of the goodwill balance is not deductible for tax purposes.
(3) The Company assigned $324.0 million of goodwill associated with the Kate Spade acquisition to Coach brand reporting units based upon the analysis of expected synergies, including the allocation of corporate synergies to the brands.

TAPESTRY, INC.
 
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (continued)




(4) The brand intangible asset, of which the majority is not deductible for tax purposes, was valued based on the multi-period excess earnings method.
(5) The components of other intangible assets included favorable lease rights of $72.2 million (amortized over the remainder of the underlying lease terms), customer relationships of $45.0 million (amortized over 15 years) and order backlog of $2.0 million (amortized over 6 months). Favorable lease rights were valued based on a comparison of market participant information and Company-specific lease terms. The customer relationship intangible asset was valued using the excess earnings method, which discounts the estimated after-tax cash flows associated with the existing base of customers as of the acquisition date, factoring in expected attrition of the existing base. The order backlog intangible asset was valued using the excess earnings method, which discounts the estimated after-tax cash flows associated with open customer orders as of the acquisition date.
(6)
The Company acquired $200.1 million of net deferred tax assets related to Kate Spade historical federal and state net operating losses, net of a $39.3 million valuation allowance, which the Company expects to be able to utilize. The deferred tax adjustments resulting from the step-up in basis of acquired assets, most notably the brand intangible asset, resulted in an overall deferred tax liability.
(7) 
Includes an adjustment for unfavorable lease rights of $49.5 million (amortized over the remainder of the underlying lease terms).
Distributor Acquisitions and Kate Spade Joint Ventures Operational Control
During the third quarter of fiscal 2018, the Company acquired designated assets of its Stuart Weitzman distributor in Northern China, entered into an agreement to take operational control of the Kate Spade Joint Ventures that operate in mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan in which the Company has 50% interest, and acquired designated assets of its Coach distributor in Australia and New Zealand.
The aggregate purchase consideration for the three acquisitions was $153.7 million, of which $106.9 million is cash consideration and the remaining is related to non-cash consideration. Of the cash consideration, $61.5 million (or $55.6 million net of cash acquired) was paid during fiscal 2018 and the remaining will be paid in the future. Of the total purchase consideration of $153.7 million, $50.0 million of net assets were recorded at their fair values, and the excess of the purchase consideration over the fair value of the net assets acquired was recorded as non-tax deductible goodwill in the amount of $103.7 million. Of this amount, $52.8 million, $49.3 million and $1.6 million were assigned to the Company's Kate Spade, Stuart Weitzman and Coach segments, respectively. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, there were measurement period adjustments of $2.3 million and $0.5 million, related to the Kate Spade and Stuart Weitzman segments, respectively, which decreased Goodwill.
The purchase price allocation for these assets acquired and liabilities assumed is substantially complete, however may be subject to change as additional information is obtained during the acquisition measurement period. The pro forma results are not presented for these acquisitions as they are immaterial.

10. EARNINGS PER SHARE
Basic net income (loss) per share is calculated by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted-average number of shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income (loss) per share is calculated similarly but includes potential dilution from the exercise of stock options and restricted stock units and any other potentially dilutive instruments, only in the periods in which such effects are dilutive under the treasury stock method.

Earnings per share amounts have been calculated based on unrounded numbers. Options to purchase shares of the Company's common stock at an exercise price greater than the average market price of the common stock during the reporting period are anti-dilutive and therefore not included in the computation of diluted net income (loss) per common share. In addition, the Company has outstanding restricted stock unit awards that are issuable only upon the achievement of certain performance goals. Performance-based restricted stock unit awards are included in the computation of diluted shares only to the extent that the underlying performance conditions (i) are satisfied as of the end of the reporting period or (ii) would be considered satisfied if the end of the reporting period were the end of the related contingency period and the result would be dilutive under the treasury stock method. As of September 29, 2018 and September 30, 2017, there were 5.3 million and 5.2 million, respectively, of additional shares issuable upon exercise of anti-dilutive options and contingent vesting of performance-based restricted stock unit awards, which were excluded from the diluted share calculations.

Revolving Credit Facility
On May 30, 2017, the Company entered into a definitive credit agreement whereby Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent, the other agents party thereto, and a syndicate of banks and financial institutions have made available to the Company a $900.0 million revolving credit facility, including sub-facilities for letters of credit, with a maturity date of May 30, 2022 (the “Revolving Credit Facility”). The Revolving Credit Facility replaced the Company’s previously existing revolving credit facility under the Amendment and Restatement Agreement, dated as of March 18, 2015, by and between the Company, certain lenders and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent. The Revolving Credit Facility may be used to finance the working capital needs, capital expenditures, permitted investments, share purchases, dividends and other general corporate purposes of the

18

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (continued)




Company and its subsidiaries (which may include commercial paper back-up). Letters of credit and swing line loans may be issued under the Revolving Credit Facility as described below. There were no outstanding borrowings on the Revolving Credit Facility as of September 29, 2018.
Borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility bear interest at a rate per annum equal to, at the Borrowers’ option, either (a) an alternate base rate (which is a rate equal to the greatest of (i) the Prime Rate in effect on such day, (ii) the Federal Funds Effective Rate in effect on such day plus ½ of 1% or (iii) the Adjusted LIBO Rate for a one month Interest Period on such day plus 1%) or (b) a rate based on the rates applicable for deposits in the interbank market for U.S. Dollars or the applicable currency in which the loans are made plus, in each case, an applicable margin. The applicable margin will be determined by reference to a grid, as defined in the Credit Agreement, based on the ratio of (a) consolidated debt plus 600% of consolidated lease expense to (b) consolidated EBITDAR. Additionally, the Company pays a commitment fee at a rate determined by the reference to the aforementioned pricing grid.
4.250% Senior Notes due 2025
On March 2, 2015, the Company issued $600.0 million aggregate principal amount of 4.250% senior unsecured notes due April 1, 2025 at 99.445% of par (the “2025 Senior Notes”). Interest is payable semi-annually on April 1 and October 1 beginning October 1, 2015. Prior to January 1, 2025 (90 days prior to the scheduled maturity date), the Company may redeem the 2025 Senior Notes in whole or in part, at its option at any time or from time to time, at a redemption price equal to the greater of (1) 100% of the principal amount of the 2025 Senior Notes to be redeemed or (2) the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest thereon that would have been payable in respect of the 2025 Senior Notes calculated as if the maturity date of the 2025 Senior Notes was January 1, 2025 (not including any portion of payments of interest accrued to the date of redemption), discounted to the redemption date on a semi-annual basis at the Adjusted Treasury Rate (as defined in the indenture for the 2025 Senior Notes) plus 35 basis points, plus, in the case of each of (1) and (2), accrued and unpaid interest to the redemption date. On and after January 1, 2025 (90 days prior to the scheduled maturity date), the Company may redeem the 2025 Senior Notes in whole or in part, at its option at any time or from time to time, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the 2025 Senior Notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest to the redemption date.
3.000% Senior Notes due 2022
On June 20, 2017, the Company issued $400.0 million aggregate principal amount of 3.000% senior unsecured notes due July 15, 2022 at 99.505% of par (the "2022 Senior Notes").

Prior to June 15, 2022 (one month prior to the scheduled maturity date), the Company may redeem the 2022 Senior Notes in whole or in part, at its option at any time or from time to time, at a redemption price equal to the greater of (1) 100% of the principal amount of the 2022 Senior Notes to be redeemed or (2) as determined by a Quotation Agent, the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest thereon that would have been payable in respect of the 2022 Senior Notes calculated as if the maturity date of the 2022 Senior Notes was June 15, 2022 (not including any portion of payments of interest accrued to the date of redemption), discounted to the redemption date on a semi-annual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months) at the Adjusted Treasury Rate (as defined in the Prospectus Supplement) plus 25 basis points, plus, in the case of each of (1) and (2), accrued and unpaid interest to the redemption date.
4.125% Senior Notes due 2027
On June 20, 2017, the Company issued $600.0 million aggregate principal amount of 4.125% senior unsecured notes due July 15, 2027 at 99.858% of par (the "2027 Senior Notes"). Interest is payable semi-annually on January 15 and July 15 beginning January 15, 2018. Prior to April 15, 2027 (the date that is three months prior to the scheduled maturity date), the Company may redeem the 2027 Senior Notes in whole or in part, at its option at any time or from time to time, at a redemption price equal to the greater of (1) 100% of the principal amount of the 2027 Senior Notes to be redeemed or (2) as determined by a Quotation Agent, the sum of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest thereon that would have been payable in respect of the 2027 Senior Notes calculated as if the maturity date of the 2027 Senior Notes was April 15, 2027 (not including any portion of payments of interest accrued to the date of redemption), discounted to the redemption date on a semi-annual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months) at the Adjusted Treasury Rate (as defined in the Prospectus Supplement) plus 30 basis points, plus, in the case of each of (1) and (2), accrued and unpaid interest to the redemption date.
At September 29, 2018 and June 30, 2018, the total fair value of the 2025, 2022 and 2027 Senior Notes was $1.55 billion and $1.56 billion, respectively, based on external pricing data, including available quoted market prices of these instruments, and consideration of comparable debt instruments with similar interest rates and trading frequency, among other factors, and is classified as a Level 2 measurement within the fair value hierarchy.

Note Payable
As a result of taking operational control of the Kate Spade Joint Ventures, the Company has an outstanding Note Payable of $11.4 million as of September 29, 2018 and June 30, 2018 to the other partner of the Kate Spade Joint Ventures, to be payable in fiscal 2021.

The remaining lease obligations will be amortized through May 1, 2025.
13. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
The Company categorizes its assets and liabilities, based on the priority of the inputs to the valuation technique, into a three-level fair value hierarchy as set forth below. The three levels of the hierarchy are defined as follows:
Level 1 — Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. 
Level 2 — Observable inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1. Level 2 inputs include quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in non-active markets, quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, and inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for substantially the full term of the asset or liability. 
Level 3 — Unobservable inputs reflecting management’s own assumptions about the input used in pricing the asset or liability. The Company does not have any Level 3 investments.
The following table shows the fair value measurements of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities at September 29, 2018 and June 30, 2018:

Cash equivalents consist of money market funds and time deposits with maturities of three months or less at the date of purchase. Due to their short term maturity, management believes that their carrying value approximates fair value.

TAPESTRY, INC.
 
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (continued)




(2) 
Short-term investments are recorded at fair value, which approximates their carrying value, and are primarily based upon quoted vendor or broker priced securities in active markets.
(3) 
The fair value of these hedges is primarily based on the forward curves of the specific indices upon which settlement is based and includes an adjustment for the counterparty’s or Company’s credit risk.
Refer to Note 12, "Debt," for the fair value of the Company's outstanding debt instruments.
Non-Financial Assets and Liabilities 
The Company’s non-financial instruments, which primarily consist of goodwill, intangible assets and property and equipment, are not required to be measured at fair value on a recurring basis and are reported at carrying value. However, on a periodic basis whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that their carrying value may not be fully recoverable (and at least annually for goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets), non-financial instruments are assessed for impairment and, if applicable, written-down to and recorded at fair value, considering market participant assumptions. Refer to Note 7, "Acquisitions," for further discussion of the approaches used in valuing acquired assets and assumed liabilities.

15. INCOME TAXES
On December 22, 2017, H.R.1, formerly known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Tax Legislation”) was enacted. The Tax Legislation significantly revises the U.S. tax code by (i) lowering the U.S federal statutory income tax rate from 35% to 21%, (ii) implementing a territorial tax system, (iii) imposing a one-time transition tax on deemed repatriated earnings of foreign subsidiaries ("Transition Tax"), (iv) requiring current inclusion of global intangible low taxed income (“GILTI”) of certain earnings of controlled foreign corporations in U.S. federal taxable income, (v) creating the base erosion anti-abuse tax (“BEAT”) provision, (vi) implementing bonus depreciation that will allow for full expensing of qualified property, (vii) enacting a beneficial rate to be applied against Foreign Derived Intangible Income ("FDII") and (viii) limiting deductibility of interest and executive compensation expense, among other changes.
The Tax Legislation includes substantial changes to the taxation of foreign income, effectively converting the U.S. to a territorial income tax regime. Notable changes include that foreign earnings after December 31, 2017 will generally be eligible for a 100% dividends received exemption, however companies are subject to the BEAT and GILTI provisions, which would increase the

21

TAPESTRY, INC.
 
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (continued)




Company's effective tax rate, and the FDII provision, which would decrease the effective tax rate. The Company has decided to account for GILTI in the period in which it is incurred and therefore has not provided any deferred tax impacts of GILTI in its consolidated financial statements for the three months ended September 29, 2018. As a result, during the three months ended September 29, 2018, the Company recorded approximately $4 million to Provision for income taxes related to the GILTI and FDII provisions.
During fiscal 2018, the Company recorded charges of $178.2 million within its income tax provision in connection with the Tax Legislation, of which $266.0 million related to the mandatory transition tax and $(87.8) million related to the revaluation of the Company's deferred tax assets and liabilities. There were no additional charges recorded in fiscal 2019 related to these items.
The Company recorded all of the required income tax effects under the Tax Legislation and provided disclosure pursuant to Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 740, Income Taxes, and the SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin ("SAB") 118, using its best estimates based on reasonable and supportable assumptions, available inputs and underlying information. The amounts that were recorded are subject to adjustment as future guidance becomes available, additional facts become known or estimation approaches are refined.
16. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Letters of Credit
The Company had standby letters of credit, surety bonds and bank guarantees totaling $36.3 million and $35.1 million outstanding at September 29, 2018 and June 30, 2018, respectively. The agreements, which expire at various dates through calendar 2039, primarily collateralize the Company's obligation to third parties for duty, leases, insurance claims and materials used in product manufacturing. The Company pays certain fees with respect to these instruments that are issued.
Tax Legislation
The Tax Legislation requires the Company to pay a one-time tax, or Transition Tax on previously unremitted earnings of certain non-U.S. subsidiaries. The Company paid approximately $26 million in the first quarter ending September 29, 2018 and expects to pay the remaining $240 million related to the Transition Tax from fiscal 2019 through fiscal 2025. Refer to Note 15, "Income Taxes," for more information related to the impact of the Tax Legislation.
Other
The Company had other contractual cash obligations as of September 29, 2018 related to debt repayments. Refer to Note 12, "Debt," for further information.
In the ordinary course of business, the Company is a party to several pending legal proceedings and claims. Although the outcome of such items cannot be determined with certainty, the Company's general counsel and management are of the opinion that the final outcome will not have a material effect on the Company’s cash flow, results of operations or financial position.
17. SEGMENT INFORMATION
The Company has three reportable segments:
Coach - Includes global sales of Coach brand products to customers through Coach operated stores, including the Internet and concession shop-in-shops, sales to wholesale customers and through independent third party distributors.
Kate Spade - Includes global sales primarily of kate spade new york brand products to customers through Kate Spade operated stores, including the Internet, sales to wholesale customers, through concession shop-in-shops and through independent third party distributors.

Accordingly, certain SG&A expenses that were previously reported within our reportable segments are now reflected in Corporate expense. The costs primarily relate to employee costs within shared functional groups. The following table recasts segment reporting for the three months ended September 30, 2017.

18. HEADQUARTERS TRANSACTIONS

In fiscal 2019, the Company will extend these newly implemented systems to other areas of the Company. Furthermore, beginning in the second quarter of fiscal 2019, the Company successfully deployed the first phase of the finance and accounting systems for Tapestry, Coach and Stuart Weitzman, with Kate Spade to follow during the third quarter of fiscal 2019. The ERP Implementation is expected to be substantially completed in fiscal 2019.
Stuart Weitzman Production Challenges
Stuart Weitzman results continued to be negatively impacted by the supply chain operational challenges which began in the third quarter of fiscal 2018, including production delays which caused lower than expected sales, as the brand was not prepared for the level of complexity and new development as it transitions to a new creative vision. The Company has addressed these challenges through investment in talent, as well as added infrastructure and manufacturing capacity. As a result of these investments, the Company expects to achieve sales growth in the second quarter of fiscal 2019.

Impact of Tax Legislation
On December 22, 2017, H.R.1, formerly known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Tax Legislation”) was enacted. The Tax Legislation significantly revises the U.S. tax code by (i) lowering the U.S federal statutory income tax rate from 35% to 21%, (ii) implementing a territorial tax system, (iii) imposing a one-time transition tax on deemed repatriated earnings of foreign subsidiaries ("Transition Tax"), (iv) requiring current inclusion of global intangible low taxed income (“GILTI”) of certain earnings of controlled foreign corporations in U.S. federal taxable income, (v) creating the base erosion anti-abuse tax (“BEAT”), (vi) implementing bonus depreciation that will allow for full expensing of qualified property, (vii) enacting a beneficial rate to be applied against Foreign Derived Intangible Income ("FDII") and (viii) limiting deductibility of interest and executive compensation expense, among other changes. Notable changes include the following:
Foreign earnings that may exist after December 31, 2017 will generally be eligible for a 100% dividends received exemption, however companies may be subject to the alternative BEAT and GILTI tax regimes which could increase the global effective tax rate. Conversely, companies may be eligible for a reduced rate to the extent their earnings qualify as FDII, which would reduce their global effective tax rate. Of these tax provisions, the GILTI and FDII provisions have impacted the Company in fiscal year 2019, with GILTI being the most impactful of the two. The Company does not anticipate any impact under the BEAT provision. Under GILTI, a portion of the Company’s foreign earnings will be subject to U.S. taxation. To the extent a company’s foreign operations are subject to GILTI and there is an existing outside basis difference in the Company’s foreign investments that exists within the reporting period, the Company may need to record a deferred tax liability for some portion of the anticipated additional tax resulting from future GILTI inclusions. Outside-basis difference is generally defined as the difference between an entity’s financial statement carrying amount and the tax basis of the parent’s investment in that entity’s stock. Outside basis differences typically arise from things such as the entity earning income that has yet to be distributed to the parent company, or from purchase accounting adjustments not recognized for tax purposes. For companies subject to GILTI, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") has indicated that companies are allowed to record tax associated with GILTI as a period cost in the period the earnings are included on the U.S. tax return. The Company has chosen to adopt this policy.
The Tax Legislation includes what many believe is an unintended consequence that results in certain leasehold improvements being ineligible for bonus depreciation. The Company has estimated fiscal year 2019 depreciation expense based on how the law was drafted, with no consideration of the perceived legislative intent. The Company has estimated its capital expenditures by class to estimate depreciation expense for purposes of calculating the rate change adjustment of our deferred tax balance. If tax legislation for Qualified Improvement Property ("QIP") is adjusted in fiscal 2019 or beyond, it will impact the rate change adjustment, which in turn will impact the Company’s estimated annual effective tax rate in the year the legislation is revised.
At this time, it is unknown whether certain U.S. states in which the Company operates will conform to the Tax Legislation or adopt an alternative regime. The Company continues to monitor developments; at this time all material aspects of its provision for income tax for the quarter ended September 29, 2018 are recorded based on recent guidance or its historical approach to state tax expense.
The Company recorded all of the required income tax effects under the Tax Legislation and pursuant to Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 740, Income Taxes, and the SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin ("SAB") 118, using its best estimates based on reasonable and supportable assumptions, available inputs and underlying information. The amounts that were recorded are subject to adjustment as future guidance becomes available, additional facts become known or estimation approaches are refined.
Integration and Acquisition Costs
During the first quarter of fiscal 2019, the Company completed its acquisition of certain distributors for the Kate Spade and Stuart Weitzman brands. During the first quarter of fiscal 2018, the Company completed its acquisition of Kate Spade & Company. During the third quarter of fiscal 2018, the Company completed its acquisition of certain distributors for the Coach and Stuart Weitzman brands and obtained operational control of the Kate Spade Joint Ventures. The operating results of the respective entities have been consolidated in the Company's operating results commencing on the date of each acquisition. As a result, the Company incurred charges related to the integration and acquisition of the businesses. These charges are primarily associated with purchase price accounting adjustments, acquisition costs, inventory-related charges, contractual payments and organization-related expenses. The Company currently estimates that it will incur approximately $40 million in pre-tax charges, of which approximately $5-10 million are expected to be non-cash charges, for the remainder of fiscal 2019.
Refer to Note 5, "Integration and Acquisition Costs," Note 7, "Acquisitions," and "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation," herein, for further information.

Operational Efficiency Plan
During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, the Company announced a series of operational efficiency initiatives focused on creating an agile and scalable business model (the "Operational Efficiency Plan"). The significant majority of the charges under this plan were recorded within Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses. These charges were associated with organizational efficiencies, primarily related to the reduction of corporate staffing levels globally, as well as accelerated depreciation, mainly associated with information systems retirement, technology infrastructure charges related to the initial costs of replacing and updating our core technology platforms, and international supply chain and office location optimization. Total cumulative charges incurred under the Operational Efficiency Plan were $87.4 million. The plan was concluded in fiscal 2018.
Refer to Note 6, "Restructuring Activities," and "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation," herein, for further information.
Current Trends and Outlook
The environment in which we operate is subject to a number of different factors driving global consumer spending. Consumer preferences, macroeconomic conditions, foreign currency fluctuations and geopolitical events continue to impact overall levels of consumer travel and spending on discretionary items, with inconsistent patterns across channels and geographies.
Global consumer retail traffic trends remain under pressure. This, along with other factors, has led to a more promotional environment in the fragmented retail industry due to increased competition and a desire to offset traffic declines with increased levels of conversion. Further declines in traffic could result in store impairment charges if expected future cash flows of the related asset group do not exceed the carrying value.
After strong economic performance in calendar 2017 and the first half of 2018, including improvements in the labor market as well as modest growth in overall consumer spending, the U.S. economic outlook is expected to continue in the next year. Several organizations that monitor the world’s economy, including the International Monetary Fund, observed economic strengthening across the United States but observed inconsistent economic growth across markets around the globe recently. As a result, the current outlook remains uncertain. It is still, however, too early to understand what kind of sustained impact these trends or changes in trade agreements and tax legislation will have on consumer discretionary spending.
Risk of volatility or a worsening of the macroeconomic environment remains due to political uncertainty and potential changes to international trade agreements. During the first quarter of fiscal 2019, the Trump Administration began to impose duties of 10% related to Chinese-made imported products. The administration recently proposed to increase this duty rate to 25%, which would go into effect in January 2019. Certain of the Company's offerings are impacted by these tariffs, however the Company believes that there will be minimal impact given the diversity of its sourcing activities.
Additional macroeconomic impacts include but are not limited to the United Kingdom ("U.K.") voting to leave the European Union ("E.U."), commonly known as "Brexit." On March 29, 2017, the U.K. triggered Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty formally starting negotiations with the E.U. The U.K. and E.U. announced in March 2018 an agreement in principle to transitional provisions under which E.U. law would remain in force in the U.K. until the end of December 2020, but this remains subject to the successful conclusion of a final withdrawal agreement between the parties. In the absence of such an agreement, there would be no transitional provisions and a "hard" Brexit would occur on March 29, 2019.
We will continue to monitor these trends and evaluate and adjust our operating strategies and cost management opportunities to mitigate the related impact on our results of operations, while remaining focused on the long-term growth of our business and protecting the value of our brands.
For a detailed discussion of significant risk factors that have the potential to cause our actual results to differ materially from our expectations, see Part I, Item 1A. "Risk Factors" disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018.
