NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

 

 

NOTE 1—THE COMPANY

Nature of Business

RH, a Delaware corporation, together with its subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company”), is a luxury home furnishings retailer that offers a growing number of categories including furniture, lighting, textiles, bathware, décor, outdoor and garden, tableware, and child and teen furnishings. These products are sold through the Company’s stores, catalogs and websites.

On May 27, 2016, the Company acquired a controlling interest in Design Investors WW Acquisition Company, LLC, which owns the business operating under the name “Waterworks”. Refer to Note 3—Business Combination.

As of October 28, 2017, the Company operated a total of 84 retail Galleries and 31 outlet stores in 32 states, the District of Columbia and Canada, and includes 15 Waterworks showrooms in the United States and in the U.K., and had sourcing operations in Shanghai and Hong Kong.

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared from the Company’s records and, in management’s opinion, include all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to fairly state the Company’s financial position as of October 28, 2017, and the results of operations for the three and nine months ended October 28, 2017 and October 29, 2016. The Company’s current fiscal year, which consists of 53 weeks, ends on February 3, 2018 (“fiscal 2017”).

Certain information and disclosures normally included in the notes to annual consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted for purposes of these interim condensed consolidated financial statements.

These unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 28, 2017 (the “2016 Form 10-K”). Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified for consistency with the current period presentation. Refer to “Revision” below.

The results of operations for the three and nine months ended October 28, 2017 presented herein are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full fiscal year.

Revision

During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, management determined that the Company had incorrectly reported negative cash balances due to outstanding checks in the accounts payable and accrued expenses financial statement line item in its condensed consolidated balance sheets without properly applying the limited right of offset against cash and cash equivalents in accordance with ASC 210Balance Sheet. This resulted in an overstatement of cash and cash equivalents and an overstatement of accounts payable and accrued expenses on its condensed consolidated balance sheets, as well as a misstatement of the cash provided by operating activities on the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows. There was no impact on the condensed consolidated statements of income or stockholders’ equity related to these misstatements.

The Company assessed the materiality of these misstatements on prior periods financial statements in accordance with SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin (“SAB”) No. 99Materiality, codified in Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 250Presentation of Financial Statements, and concluded that these misstatements were not material to any prior annual or interim periods. Accordingly, in accordance with ASC 250 (SAB No. 108Considering the Effects of Prior Year Misstatements when Quantifying Misstatements in Current Year Financial Statements), the amounts have been revised in the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows.

The new guidance simplifies several aspects of the accounting for employee share-based payment transactions including the accounting for income taxes, forfeitures, and statutory tax withholding requirements, as well as classification in the statement of cash flows. One provision requires that the excess income tax benefits and tax deficiencies related to share-based payments be recognized within income tax expense in the statement of operations, rather than within additional paid-in capital on the balance sheet. The new guidance was effective for the Company beginning on January 29, 2017. As a result of the adoption of this new guidance, the Company recognized an excess tax benefit of $1.9 million and $4.3 million in the provision for income taxes as a discrete item during the three and nine months ended October 28, 2017, respectively. These amounts may not necessarily be indicative of future amounts that may be recognized as any excess tax benefits recognized would be dependent on future stock price, employee exercise behavior and applicable tax rates. As permitted, the Company elected to classify excess tax benefits (shortfalls) as an operating activity in the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows instead of as a financing activity on a prospective basis and did not retrospectively adjust prior periods.

In May 2017, the FASB issued Accounting Standard Update No. 2017-09CompensationStock Compensation (Topic 718): Scope of Modification Accounting. The new guidance clarifies when modification accounting should be applied for changes to terms or conditions of a share-based payment award. The new guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within that reporting period, with early adoption permitted. The standard will be applied prospectively. The Company is evaluating the impact of adopting this new accounting standard on its consolidated financial statements.

Revenue from Contracts with Customers

In May 2014, the FASB and International Accounting Standards Board issued their converged accounting standard update on revenue recognition, Accounting Standards Update 2014-09—Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). This guidance outlines a single comprehensive model for companies to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers and supersedes most current revenue recognition guidance, including industry-specific guidance. The core principle of the revenue model is that revenue is recognized when a customer obtains control of a good or service. A customer obtains control when it has the ability to direct the use of and obtain the benefits from the good or service. Under the new guidance, transfer of control is no longer the same as transfer of risks and rewards as indicated in the prior guidance. The FASB deferred the effective date for the new revenue reporting standard for entities reporting under GAAP for one year from the original effective date. In 2016, the FASB issued several amendments to the standard, including principal versus agent considerations when another party is involved in providing goods or services to a customer, the application of identifying performance obligations, and the recognition of expected breakage amounts.

The Company continues to assess all potential impacts of the standard. In applying the guidance under Topic 606, specifically related to the indicators of transfer of control, the Company continues to assess the guidance and has not yet concluded how such guidance will be applied to its revenue streams. The Company plans to elect to adopt the practical expedient related to shipping and handling activities. The Company has concluded that the new standard will have an impact related to the accounting for gift card breakage. Under Topic 606 the Company expects to recognize breakage, which is currently recorded as a reduction to selling, general and administrative expenses, as revenue and breakage will be recognized proportional to actual gift card redemptions.

Topic 606 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within that reporting period, with early adoption permitted for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016. The Company will adopt Topic 606 in

8


the first quarter of fiscal 2018. The Company has elected to adopt using a modified retrospective approach with the cumulative effect of initially applying the new standard recognized in retained earnings at the date of adoption.

Accounting for Leases

In February 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2016-02Leases, which, for operating leases, requires a lessee to recognize a right-of-use asset and a lease liability, initially measured at the present value of the lease payments, in its balance sheet. The standard also requires a lessee to recognize a single lease cost, calculated so that the cost of the lease is allocated over the lease term, on a generally straight-line basis. The ASU is effective for public companies for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the effects that the adoption of ASU 2016-02 will have on its consolidated financial statements and anticipates the new guidance will significantly impact its consolidated financial statements given the Company has a significant number of leases.

Financial Instruments

In January 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2016-01Financial InstrumentsOverall (Subtopic 825-10): Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities, which amends various aspects of the recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure for financial instruments. The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted only for certain provisions. The Company is evaluating the impact of adopting this new accounting standard on its consolidated financial statements.

Cash Flow Classification

In August 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standard Update No. 2016-15Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments. The new guidance addresses eight specific cash flow issues with the objective of reducing an existing diversity in practices regarding the matter in which certain cash receipts and payments are presented and classified in the consolidated statements of cash flows. The new guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is evaluating the impact of adopting this new accounting standard on its consolidated financial statements.

Income Taxes: Intra-Entity Asset Transfers

In October 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standard Update No. 2016-16Income Taxes (Topic 740): Intra-Entity Transfers of Assets Other Than Inventory. The new guidance requires the recognition of the income tax consequences of an intercompany asset transfer, other than transfers of inventory, when the transfer occurs. For intercompany transfers of inventory, the income tax effects will continue to be deferred until the inventory has been sold to a third party. The new guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is evaluating the impact of adopting this new accounting standard on its consolidated financial statements.

Goodwill and Intangibles

In January 2017, the FASB issued Accounting Standard Update No. 2017-04IntangiblesGoodwill and Other (Topic 350). The updated guidance simplifies the measurement of goodwill impairment by removing step two of the goodwill impairment test, which requires the determination of the fair value of individual assets and liabilities of a reporting unit. The new guidance requires goodwill impairment to be measured as the amount by which a reporting unit’s carrying value exceeds its fair value; however, the loss recognized should not exceed the total amount of goodwill allocated to that reporting unit. The amendments should be applied on a prospective basis. The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019 with early adoption permitted for interim or annual goodwill impairment tests performed after January 1, 2017. The Company is evaluating the impact of adopting this new accounting standard on its consolidated financial statements.

 

NOTE 3—BUSINESS COMBINATION

On May 27, 2016, the Company acquired a controlling interest in Design Investors WW Acquisition Company, LLC, which owns the business operating under the name “Waterworks”. The purchase price of the acquisition was approximately $119.9 million consisting of $118.4 million funded with available cash and $1.5 million representing the fair value of rollover units, which amount is subject to adjustment for changes in working capital and other items. The rollover units, which are classified as a liability, are included in non-current liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheets (refer to Note 15—Stock-Based Compensation). After the transaction, and giving effect to equity interests acquired by management in the business, the Company owns in excess of 90% of the total equity interest in Waterworks, and owns 100% of the voting equity interest.

9


During the nine months ended October 29, 2016, the Company incurred $2.8 million, of acquisition-related costs associated with the transaction. The Company did not incur any acquisition-related costs during the three months ended October 29, 2016. These costs and expenses include fees associated with financial, legal and accounting advisors, and employment related costs, and are included in selling, general and administrative expenses on the condensed consolidated statements of operations.

The Company recorded a purchase price allocation adjustment of $1.9 million during the first half of 2017. The adjustment primarily related to a subset of inventory acquired for which the Company completed a fair value analysis based on the facts and circumstances that existed as of the acquisition date. Subsequent to the acquisition date, only a small portion of such inventory had been sold and therefore the impact on the Company’s results of operations for historical periods since the acquisition was insignificant. The following table summarizes the purchase price allocation based on the estimated fair value of the acquired assets and assumed liabilities, prior to and after the purchase price allocation adjustments (in thousands):

Any future changes to the purchase price will be recorded directly to the consolidated statements of operations and will not impact the goodwill recorded as a result of this acquisition.

Under purchase accounting rules, the Company valued the acquired finished goods inventory to fair value, which is defined as the estimated selling price less the sum of (a) costs of disposal and (b) a reasonable profit allowance for the Company’s selling effort. This valuation resulted in an increase in inventory carrying value of approximately $9.7 million for marketable inventory.

Trademarks have been assigned an indefinite life and therefore are not subject to amortization. The goodwill is representative of the benefits and expected synergies from the integration of Waterworks products and Waterworks’ management and employees, which do not qualify for separate recognition as an intangible asset. A portion of the trademarks and goodwill are not deductible for tax purposes.

Results of operations of Waterworks have been included in the Company’s condensed consolidated statements of operations since the May 27, 2016 acquisition date. Pro forma results of the acquired business have not been presented as the results were not considered material to the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements for all periods presented and would not have been material had the acquisition occurred at the beginning of fiscal 2016.

 

NOTE 4—ASSET HELD FOR SALE

Building and Land

During the first quarter of fiscal 2017, the Company committed to a plan to sell the building and land at one of its owned retail Galleries, resulting in a reclassification of building and land of $8.2 million from property and equipment to asset held for sale on the condensed consolidated balance sheets as of April 29, 2017. In May 2017, the Company completed the sale of the building and land for approximately $10.2 million and entered into a short-term five month lease agreement to lease the property. As a result, the gain associated with the sale of this property was amortized over a five month period. During the three and nine months ended October 28, 2017, the Company recorded a gain of $0.8 million and $2.1 million, respectively, which is included as a reduction of selling, general and administrative expenses on the condensed consolidated statements of operations. No additional gain associated with this transaction will be recognized in future periods.

Aircraft

During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, the Company committed to a plan to sell an aircraft, which resulted in a reclassification of such aircraft from property and equipment to asset held for sale on the condensed consolidated balance sheets as of January 28, 2017. The asset held for sale had a carrying value of $4.9 million as of January 28, 2017. In April 2017, the sale of the aircraft was completed for a purchase price of $5.2 million and the Company incurred costs of $0.3 million to dispose of the asset.

NOTE 9—CONVERTIBLE SENIOR NOTES

0.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2020

In June 2015, the Company issued in a private offering $250 million principal amount of 0.00% convertible senior notes due 2020 and, in July 2015, the Company issued an additional $50 million principal amount pursuant to the exercise of the overallotment option granted to the initial purchasers as part of its June 2015 offering (collectively, the “2020 Notes”). The 2020 Notes are governed by the terms of an indenture between the Company and U.S. Bank National Association, as the Trustee. The 2020 Notes will mature on July 15, 2020, unless earlier purchased by the Company or converted. The 2020 Notes will not bear interest, except that the 2020 Notes will be subject to “special interest” in certain limited circumstances in the event of the failure of the Company to perform certain of its obligations under the indenture governing the 2020 Notes. The 2020 Notes are unsecured obligations and do not contain any financial covenants or restrictions on the payments of dividends, the incurrence of indebtedness or the issuance or repurchase of securities by the Company or any of its subsidiaries. Certain events are also considered “events of default” under the 2020 Notes, which may result in the acceleration of the maturity of the 2020 Notes, as described in the indenture governing the 2020 Notes. The 2020 Notes are guaranteed by the Company’s primary operating subsidiary, Restoration Hardware, Inc., as Guarantor. The guarantee is the unsecured obligation of the Guarantor and is subordinated to the Guarantor’s obligations from time to time with respect to its credit agreement and ranks equal in right of payment with respect to Guarantor’s other obligations.

The initial conversion rate applicable to the 2020 Notes is 8.4656 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of 2020 Notes, which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $118.13 per share. The conversion rate will be subject to adjustment upon the occurrence of certain specified events, but will not be adjusted for any accrued and unpaid special interest. In addition, upon the occurrence of a “make-whole fundamental change” as defined in the indenture, the Company will, in certain circumstances, increase the conversion rate by a number of additional shares for a holder that elects to convert its 2020 Notes in connection with such make-whole fundamental change.

Prior to March 15, 2020, the 2020 Notes will be convertible only under the following circumstances: (1) during any calendar quarter commencing after September 30, 2015, if, for at least 20 trading days (whether or not consecutive) during the 30 consecutive trading day period ending on the last trading day of the immediately preceding fiscal quarter, the last reported sale price of the Company’s common stock on such trading day is greater than or equal to 130% of the applicable conversion price on such trading day; (2) during the five consecutive business day period after any ten consecutive trading day period in which, for each day of that period, the trading price per $1,000 principal amount of 2020 Notes for such trading day was less than 98% of the product of the last reported sale price of the Company’s common stock and the applicable conversion rate on such trading day; or (3) upon the occurrence of specified corporate transactions. As of October 28, 2017, none of these conditions have occurred and, as a result, the 2020 Notes are not convertible as of October 28, 2017. On and after March 15, 2020, until the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date, holders may convert all or a portion of their 2020 Notes at any time, regardless of the foregoing circumstances. Upon conversion, the 2020 Notes will be settled, at the Company’s election, in cash, shares

13


of the Company’s common stock, or a combination of cash and shares of the Company’s common stock. If the Company has not delivered a notice of its election of settlement method prior to the final conversion period it will be deemed to have elected combination settlement with a dollar amount per note to be received upon conversion of $1,000.

The Company may not redeem the 2020 Notes; however, upon the occurrence of a fundamental change (as defined in the indenture governing the notes), holders may require the Company to purchase all or a portion of their 2020 Notes for cash at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the 2020 Notes to be purchased plus any accrued and unpaid special interest to, but excluding, the fundamental change purchase date.

Under GAAP, certain convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash on conversion are required to be separately accounted for as liability and equity components of the instrument in a manner that reflects the issuer’s non-convertible debt borrowing rate. Accordingly, in accounting for the issuance of the 2020 Notes, the Company separated the 2020 Notes into liability and equity components. The carrying amount of the liability component was calculated by measuring the fair value of a similar liability that does not have an associated convertible feature. The carrying amount of the equity component, which is recognized as a debt discount, represents the difference between the proceeds from the issuance of the 2020 Notes and the fair value of the liability component of the 2020 Notes. The excess of the principal amount of the liability component over its carrying amount (“debt discount”) will be amortized to interest expense using an effective interest rate of 6.47% over the expected life of the 2020 Notes. The equity component is not remeasured as long as it continues to meet the conditions for equity classification.

In accounting for the debt issuance costs related to the issuance of the 2020 Notes, the Company allocated the total amount incurred to the liability and equity components based on their relative values. Debt issuance costs attributable to the liability component are amortized to interest expense using the effective interest method over the expected life of the 2020 Notes, and debt issuance costs attributable to the equity component are netted with the equity component in stockholders’ equity.

Debt issuance costs related to the 2020 Notes were comprised of discounts upon original issuance of $3.8 million and third party offering costs of $2.3 million. Discounts and third party offering costs attributable to the liability component are recorded as a contra-liability and are presented net against the convertible senior notes due 2020 balance on the condensed consolidated balance sheets. During the three months ended October 28, 2017 and October 29, 2016, the Company recorded $0.3 million and $0.2 million, respectively, related to the amortization of debt issuance costs. During the nine months ended October 28, 2017 and October 29, 2016, the Company recorded $0.8 million and $0.7 million, respectively, related to the amortization of debt issuance costs.

The Company recorded interest expense of $11.9 million and $11.2 million for the amortization of the debt discount related to the 2020 Notes during the nine months ended October 28, 2017 and October 29, 2016, respectively.

2020 Notes—Convertible Bond Hedge and Warrant Transactions

In connection with the offering of the 2020 Notes in June 2015 and the exercise in full of the overallotment option in July 2015, the Company entered into convertible note hedge transactions whereby the Company has the option to purchase a total of approximately 2.5 million shares of its common stock at a price of approximately $118.13 per share. The total cost of the convertible note hedge transactions was $68.3 million. In addition, the Company sold warrants whereby the holders of the warrants have the option to purchase a total of approximately 2.5 million shares of the Company’s common stock at a price of $189.00 per share. The warrants contain certain adjustment mechanisms whereby the total number of shares to be purchased under such warrants may be increased up to a cap of 5.1 million shares of common stock (which cap may also be subject to adjustment). The Company received $30.4 million in cash proceeds from the sale of these warrants. Taken together, the purchase of the convertible note hedges and sale of

the warrants are intended to offset any actual earnings dilution from the conversion of the 2020 Notes until the Company’s common stock is above approximately $189.00 per share. As these transactions meet certain accounting criteria, the convertible note hedges and warrants are recorded in stockholders’ equity, are not accounted for as derivatives and are not remeasured each reporting period. The net costs incurred in connection with the convertible note hedge and warrant transactions were recorded as a reduction to additional paid-in capital on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

The Company recorded a deferred tax liability of $32.8 million in connection with the debt discount associated with the 2020 Notes and recorded a deferred tax asset of $26.6 million in connection with the convertible note hedge transactions. The deferred tax liability and deferred tax asset are recorded in deferred tax assets on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

0.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2019

In June 2014, the Company issued $350 million principal amount of 0.00% convertible senior notes due 2019 (the “2019 Notes”) in a private offering. The 2019 Notes are governed by the terms of an indenture between the Company and U.S. Bank National Association, as the Trustee. The 2019 Notes will mature on June 15, 2019, unless earlier purchased by the Company or converted. The 2019 Notes will not bear interest, except that the 2019 Notes will be subject to “special interest” in certain limited circumstances in the event of the failure of the Company to perform certain of its obligations under the indenture governing the 2019 Notes. The 2019 Notes are unsecured obligations and do not contain any financial covenants or restrictions on the payments of dividends, the incurrence of indebtedness or the issuance or repurchase of securities by the Company or any of its subsidiaries. Certain events are also considered “events of default” under the 2019 Notes, which may result in the acceleration of the maturity of the 2019 Notes, as described in the indenture governing the 2019 Notes.

The initial conversion rate applicable to the 2019 Notes is 8.6143 shares of common stock per $1,000 principal amount of 2019 Notes, which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $116.09 per share. The conversion rate will be subject to adjustment upon the occurrence of certain specified events, but will not be adjusted for any accrued and unpaid special interest. In addition, upon the occurrence of a “make-whole fundamental change,” the Company will, in certain circumstances, increase the conversion rate by a number of additional shares for a holder that elects to convert its 2019 Notes in connection with such make-whole fundamental change.

Prior to March 15, 2019, the 2019 Notes will be convertible only under the following circumstances: (1) during any calendar quarter commencing after September 30, 2014, if, for at least 20 trading days (whether or not consecutive) during the 30 consecutive trading day period ending on the last trading day of the immediately preceding fiscal quarter, the last reported sale price of the Company’s common stock on such trading day is greater than or equal to 130% of the applicable conversion price on such trading day; (2) during the five consecutive business day period after any ten consecutive trading day period in which, for each day of that period, the trading price per $1,000 principal amount of 2019 Notes for such trading day was less than 98% of the product of the last reported sale price of the Company’s common stock and the applicable conversion rate on such trading day; or (3) upon the occurrence of specified corporate transactions. As of October 28, 2017, none of these conditions have occurred and, as a result, the 2019 Notes are not convertible as of October 28, 2017. On and after March 15, 2019, until the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date, holders may convert all or a portion of their 2019 Notes at any time, regardless of the foregoing circumstances. Upon conversion, the 2019 Notes will be settled, at the Company’s election, in cash, shares of the Company’s common stock, or a combination of cash and shares of the Company’s common stock. If the Company has not delivered a notice of its election of settlement method prior to the final conversion period it will be deemed to have elected combination settlement with a dollar amount of $1,000.

The Company may not redeem the 2019 Notes; however, upon the occurrence of a fundamental change (as defined in the indenture governing the notes), holders may require the Company to purchase all or a portion of their 2019 Notes for cash at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the 2019 Notes to be purchased plus any accrued and unpaid special interest to, but excluding, the fundamental change purchase date.

Under GAAP, certain convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash on conversion are required to be separately accounted for as liability and equity components of the instrument in a manner that reflects the issuer’s non-convertible debt borrowing rate. Accordingly, in accounting for the issuance of the 2019 Notes, the Company separated the 2019 Notes into liability and equity components. The carrying amount of the liability component was calculated by measuring the fair value of a similar liability that does not have an associated convertible feature. The carrying amount of the equity component, which is recognized as a debt discount, represents the difference between the proceeds from the issuance of the 2019 Notes and the fair value of the liability component of the 2019 Notes. The excess of the principal amount of the liability component over its carrying amount (“debt discount”) will be amortized to interest expense using an effective interest rate of 4.51% over the expected life of the 2019 Notes. The equity component is not remeasured as long as it continues to meet the conditions for equity classification.

In accounting for the debt issuance costs related to the issuance of the 2019 Notes, the Company allocated the total amount incurred to the liability and equity components based on their relative values. Debt issuance costs attributable to the liability component are amortized to interest expense using the effective interest method over the expected life of the 2019 Notes, and debt issuance costs attributable to the equity component are netted with the equity component in stockholders’ equity.

Debt issuance costs related to the 2019 Notes were comprised of discounts and commissions payable to the initial purchasers of $4.4 million and third party offering costs of $1.0 million. Discounts, commissions payable to the initial purchasers and third party offering costs attributable to the liability component are recorded as a contra-liability and are presented net against the convertible senior notes due 2019 balance on the condensed consolidated balance sheets. During both the three months ended October 28, 2017 and October 29, 2016, the Company recorded $0.2 million related to the amortization of debt issuance costs. During both the nine months ended October 28, 2017 and October 29, 2016, the Company recorded $0.6 million related to the amortization of debt issuance costs.
