TIFFANY & CO. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)

1.
CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Tiffany & Co. (also referred to as the "Registrant") and its subsidiaries (the "Company") in which a controlling interest is maintained. Controlling interest is determined by majority ownership interest and the absence of substantive third-party participating rights or, in the case of variable interest entities ("VIEs"), if the Company has the power to significantly direct the activities of a VIE, as well as the obligation to absorb significant losses of or the right to receive significant benefits from the VIE. Intercompany accounts, transactions and profits have been eliminated in consolidation. The interim financial statements are unaudited and, in the opinion of management, include all adjustments (which represent normal recurring adjustments) necessary to fairly state the Company's financial position as of April 30, 2020 and 2019 and the results of its operations and cash flows for the interim periods presented. The condensed consolidated balance sheet data for January 31, 2020 are derived from the audited financial statements, which are included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K and should be read in connection with these financial statements. As permitted by the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, these financial statements do not include all disclosures required by generally accepted accounting principles.

The Company's business is seasonal in nature, with the fourth quarter typically representing approximately one-third of annual net sales and a higher percentage of annual net earnings. Therefore, the results of its operations for the three months ended April 30, 2020 and 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results of the entire fiscal year.

An outbreak of a novel strain of the coronavirus, COVID-19, was identified in China in December 2019 and was subsequently recognized as a pandemic by the World Health Organization on March 11, 2020. This COVID-19 outbreak has severely restricted the level of economic activity around the world. In response to COVID-19, the governments of many countries, states, cities and other geographic regions have taken preventative or protective actions, such as imposing restrictions on travel and business operations and advising or requiring individuals to limit or forego time outside of their homes. Temporary closures of businesses have been ordered and numerous other businesses have temporarily closed voluntarily. Further, individuals' ability to travel has been curtailed through mandated travel restrictions and has been further limited through additional voluntary or mandated closures of travel-related businesses. Such actions, together with changes in consumers' willingness to congregate in populated areas and lower levels of disposable income due to rising unemployment rates, have resulted in significant business disruptions across a wide array of industries and an overall decline of the global economy. These factors, among others, have resulted in a significant decline in customer traffic, consumer confidence and local and tourist spending on discretionary items around the world.

As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, a substantial number of the Company's retail stores was closed for some portion of time in the three months ended April 30, 2020. For example, Company retail store closures peaked at approximately 75% to 80% of the Company's retail stores worldwide during the month of April. As of April 30, 2020, approximately 70% of the Company's retail stores remained closed worldwide, as all of the Company's retail stores in the Americas remained closed, 15% of the Company's retail stores in Asia Pacific remained closed, 95% of the Company's retail stores in Japan remained closed and 85% of the Company's retail stores in Europe remained closed. During this time, the Company's sites in its e-commerce enabled countries remained operational, and the Company's e-commerce sales in the three months ended April 30, 2020 increased 23% worldwide, with key markets such as the United States and the United Kingdom having increased 14% and 15%, respectively, compared to the prior year period.

In light of the impact of COVID-19, the Company has also been reviewing and carefully managing its operating expenses and eliminating certain non-essential spending. As part of these efforts, the Company has negotiated, and continues to negotiate, with its landlords for rent concessions principally under leases for retail stores. As a result of COVID-19, governments in many markets in which the Company operates have also implemented programs to encourage companies to retain and pay employees who are unable to work, or who are limited in the work that they can perform due to limitations resulting from travel bans, work-from-

home policies and shelter-in-place orders, among others. These programs generally provide credits for retaining and continuing to pay employees. To date, the Company has continued to pay its employees, although at a reduced level after a period of time for certain employees in closed or partially closed locations who cannot work from home, and has not taken action to reduce its workforce in connection with COVID-19.

The Company's liquidity needs have been, and are expected to remain, primarily a function of its ongoing, seasonal and expansion-related working capital requirements and capital expenditure needs. Over the long term, the Company manages its cash and capital structure to maintain a strong financial position that provides flexibility to pursue strategic priorities. Management regularly assesses its working capital needs, capital expenditure requirements, debt service, dividend payouts, share repurchases and future investments. In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Company has taken steps to further strengthen its financial position and balance sheet, and to maintain financial liquidity and flexibility, which included drawing down $500.0 million on its Credit Facility (as defined in "Note 8. Debt") during the three months ended April 30, 2020, as a precautionary measure in order to increase its cash position and maintain financial flexibility in light of the uncertainty in the global markets resulting from COVID-19. This drawdown was permitted under the Merger Agreement (as defined in "Note 2. Merger Agreement").

At April 30, 2020, the Company was in compliance with all debt covenants. The agreements governing certain of the Company's material debt instruments include covenants that incorporate a (i) debt incurrence test premised on a fixed charge coverage ratio, which is the ratio of the Company's EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes) plus rent expense to its interest expense plus rent expense, and (ii) leverage ratio, which is the ratio of the Company's total adjusted debt to its consolidated EBITDAR (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and rent expenses). Specifically, under the terms of the Company's Senior Notes due 2026 and 2042, the Company is restricted from incurring, or permitting its subsidiaries to incur, indebtedness if, among other conditions, the Company's fixed charge coverage ratio is less than 2.0 to 1.0. Under the terms of the Credit Facility, the Shanghai Guaranty (as defined in "Note 8. Debt") and the Company's Senior Notes due 2026 and 2042, the Company is required to maintain a maximum leverage ratio of 3.50 to 1.00 for the four quarter period ending as of the end of each fiscal quarter.

Based on the Company's forecasts and plans, the Company expected to remain in compliance with the leverage ratio financial maintenance covenant, although the impact of COVID-19 on the Company's EBIT could increase that leverage ratio. The Company also expected that it would not meet the fixed charge coverage ratio test for incurrence of additional debt under its Senior Notes as of the end of the second fiscal quarter of fiscal 2020, although it did not expect to need to incur additional debt within the next 12 months. Nonetheless, as a precautionary measure in order to maintain flexibility with respect to its liquidity sources and provide additional financial maintenance covenant headroom, the Company entered into amendments to its Credit Facility, the Shanghai Guaranty, and its Senior Notes due 2026 and 2042, in order to modify the financial maintenance covenant and, in the case of the Senior Notes due 2026 and 2042, the fixed charge coverage ratio test for debt incurrence, through and including the Company's fiscal quarter ending April 30, 2021. These amendments are permitted under the Merger Agreement (as defined in "Note 2. Merger Agreement").

These amendments were executed on June 8, 2020 and effect changes to certain provisions and covenants during the period beginning with the fiscal quarter ending July 31, 2020 and continuing through the fiscal quarter ending April 30, 2021 (such period of time, the "Covenant Relief Period"), including, among others: (a) an increase in the maximum leverage ratio under the Credit Facility, the Shanghai Guaranty, and the 2026 and 2042 Senior Notes, to 4.50 to 1.00; and (b) a reduction of the fixed charge coverage ratio in the 2026 and 2042 Senior Notes to 0.75 to 1.00.

During the Covenant Relief Period, the facility fee under the Credit Facility will be increased by 5 basis points at all pricing levels, and the applicable margin will be increased by (i) 10 basis points at all pricing levels through the quarter ending July 31, 2020, (ii) 20 basis points at all pricing levels from August 1, 2020 until November 1, 2020 and (iii) 30 basis points at all pricing levels from November 1, 2020 through April 30, 2021. The coupon rate under the 2026 and 2042 Senior Notes will be increased by 25 basis points during the Covenant Relief Period. The Company has the right to terminate the Covenant Relief Period under the Credit Facility, Shanghai Guaranty and the 2026 and 2042 Senior Notes, including the attendant covenant and pricing modifications referenced above, prior to April 30, 2021, subject to the Company's certification that its leverage ratio does not exceed 3.50 to 1.00 at such time. Management believes that

TIFFANY & CO.

cash on hand, internally generated cash flows and the funds available under its revolving credit facilities are sufficient to support the Company's liquidity and capital requirements for the foreseeable future, including the next 12 months.

The extent to which the COVID-19 outbreak impacts the Company's business operations, financial results, and liquidity will depend on numerous factors that the Company may not be able to accurately predict or assess due to their dynamic and evolving nature, including the duration and scope of the COVID-19 outbreak; the negative impact the outbreak has on global and regional economies and economic activity, including the duration and magnitude of its impact on consumer discretionary spending and levels of consumer confidence; and how quickly economies recover after the COVID-19 outbreak subsides. Accordingly, management cannot predict with certainty for how long and to what extent the COVID-19 outbreak will impact its business operations or the global economy as a whole. The Company will continue to take steps to mitigate the potential risks posed by the spread and related circumstances and impacts of COVID-19. The Company's management also remains focused on addressing these recent challenges presented by COVID-19 by preserving the Company's liquidity and managing its cash flows with preemptive actions such as those described above.

MERGER AGREEMENT

On November 24, 2019, the Registrant entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement") by and among the Registrant, LVMH Moët Hennessy - Louis Vuitton SE, a societas Europaea (European company) organized under the laws of France ("Parent"), Breakfast Holdings Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation and an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Parent ("Holding"), and Breakfast Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation and a direct wholly owned subsidiary of Holding ("Merger Sub"). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Merger Sub will be merged with and into the Registrant (the "Merger"), with the Registrant continuing as the surviving company in the Merger and a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of Parent.

Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger (the "Effective Time"), each share of Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time (other than shares of Common Stock owned by the Registrant, Parent or any of their respective wholly owned subsidiaries, and shares of Common Stock owned by stockholders of the Registrant who have properly demanded and not withdrawn a demand for appraisal rights under Delaware law) will be converted into the right to receive $135.00 in cash, without interest and less any required tax withholding.

The consummation of the pending Merger is subject to various conditions, including, among others, customary conditions relating to (a) the adoption of the Merger Agreement by holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of the Registrant's Common Stock entitled to vote on such matter at the meeting of stockholders of the Registrant (the "Special Meeting") held to vote on the adoption of the Merger Agreement and (b) the expiration or earlier termination of the applicable waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 (as amended, and all rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, collectively, the "HSR Act"). As previously announced: on February 3, 2020, the waiting period under the HSR Act in connection with the pending Merger expired; on February 4, 2020, the Registrant held the Special Meeting, at which the holders of shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding as of the close of business on the record date for the Special Meeting considered and voted to approve (i) the adoption of the Merger Agreement and (ii) by non-binding, advisory vote, certain compensation arrangements for the Registrant's named executive officers in connection with the pending Merger; on March 26, 2020, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States cleared the pending Merger, informing the Registrant that its review of the pending Merger had concluded and that there are no unresolved national security concerns with respect to the transaction; on March 30, 2020, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission issued a no-action letter clearing the transaction; and on April 7, 2020, the parties received a no-action letter from the Canadian Competition Bureau indicating that it does not intend to challenge the pending Merger and thereby clearing the transaction. In addition, the Federal Antimonopoly Service of Russia formally cleared the pending Merger on June 4, 2020.

In Mexico, on May 22, 2020, the Mexican competition authority (Comisión Federal de Competencia Económica) officially declared the parties' filing of March 12, 2020 to be complete. This officially triggers the authority's sixty-business-day mandatory review period, which remains subject to extension as the

TIFFANY & CO.
9


authority issues additional information requests. However, it is always possible for the authority to approve the pending Merger before the end of the official review period.

In addition to clearance by Comisión Federal de Competencia Económica, the pending Merger remains subject to receiving regulatory clearance by the Australian Foreign Investment Review Board ("FIRB"), the State Administration for Market Regulation of China, the European Commission, the Japan Fair Trade Commission, the Korea Fair Trade Commission of South Korea and the Taiwan Fair Trade Commission. The parties are working to respond to these agencies' requests for information in the context of customary pre-filing consultations (in the European Union, Japan and Taiwan) or the formal review period (in Australia, China and South Korea).

The Registrant expects to be in a position to close the pending Merger in the middle of 2020, subject to the actual length of FIRB's extended review of the pending Merger, as previously announced and, more generally, subject to potential delays in the regulatory review of the pending Merger that may result from the COVID-19 outbreak in the jurisdictions.

The pending Merger remains subject to satisfaction or waiver of the remaining customary closing conditions, including, among others, (A) certain remaining non-U.S. regulatory approvals, as outlined above, (B) the absence of a law or order in effect that enjoins, prevents or otherwise prohibits the consummation of the pending Merger or any other transactions contemplated under the Merger Agreement issued by a governmental entity; (C) the absence of any legal proceeding seeking to enjoin, prevent or otherwise prohibit the consummation of the pending Merger or any other transactions contemplated under the Merger Agreement instituted by a governmental entity of competent jurisdiction; and (D) the absence of a Material Adverse Effect (as defined in the Merger Agreement). The obligation of each party to consummate the pending Merger is also conditioned on the accuracy of the other party's representations and warranties (subject to certain materiality exceptions) and the other party's compliance, in all material respects, with its covenants and agreements under the Merger Agreement.

The Merger Agreement provides for certain customary termination rights of the Registrant and Parent, including the right of either party to terminate the Merger Agreement if the Merger is not completed on or before August 24, 2020 (the "Outside Date"), provided that the Outside Date may be extended up to an additional 90 days by either party if all conditions are satisfied other than the receipt of regulatory approvals or absence of legal restraints. The Merger Agreement also provides that the Registrant will be required to pay Parent a termination fee of $575.0 million in certain circumstances.

During the three months ended April 30, 2020, the Company incurred expenses of $16.7 million related to the pending Merger for incentive compensation costs and professional fees.

NEW ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12 – Income Taxes (ASC 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes. This guidance simplifies the approach for intraperiod tax allocations, the methodology for calculating income taxes in an interim period, and the recognition of deferred tax liabilities for outside basis differences. This guidance also clarifies and simplifies other areas of ASC 740. This ASU is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2020. Early adoption is permitted. Management is currently evaluating the impact of this ASU on the consolidated financial statements.

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13 Financial Instruments – Credit Losses: Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments. ASU 2016-13 amends the impairment model to utilize an expected loss methodology in place of the currently used incurred loss methodology, which will result in more timely recognition of losses. The new standard applies to financial assets measured at amortized cost basis, including receivables that result from revenue transactions and held-to-maturity debt securities. The Company adopted this ASU on February 1, 2020 by applying its provisions prospectively and recognizing a

TIFFANY & CO.
10


cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings as of February 1, 2020. The adoption of this ASU did not have a significant impact on the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements.

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-15 – Intangibles – Goodwill and Other – Internal-Use Software: Customer's Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That Is a Service Contract. ASU 2018-15 aligns the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs in such cloud computing arrangements with the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred to develop or obtain internal-use software. This ASU is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019 and early adoption is permitted. The Company elected to adopt this guidance on a prospective basis. The adoption of this ASU did not have a significant impact on the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements.

RECEIVABLES AND REVENUE RECOGNITION

Receivables. The Company's Accounts receivable, net primarily consists of amounts due from Credit Receivables (defined below), department store operators that host TIFFANY & CO. boutiques in their stores, third-party credit card issuers and wholesale customers. The Company maintains an allowance for doubtful accounts for estimated losses associated with outstanding accounts receivable. The allowance is determined based on a combination of factors including, but not limited to, the length of time that the receivables are past due, management's knowledge of the customer, economic and market conditions and historical write-off experiences.

For the receivables associated with Tiffany & Co. credit cards ("Credit Card Receivables"), management uses various indicators to determine whether to extend credit to customers and the amount of credit. Such indicators include reviewing prior experience with the customer, including sales and collection history, and using applicants' credit reports and scores provided by credit rating agencies. Certain customers may be granted payment terms which permit purchases above a minimum amount to be paid for in equal monthly installments over a period not to exceed 12 months (together with Credit Card Receivables, "Credit Receivables"). Credit Receivables require minimum balance payments. An account is classified as overdue if a minimum balance payment has not been received within the allotted time frame (generally 30 days), after which internal collection efforts commence. In order for the account to return to current status, full payment on all past due amounts must be received by the Company. For all Credit Receivables, once all internal collection efforts have been exhausted and management has reviewed the account, the account balance is written off and may be sent for external collection or legal action. At April 30, 2020 and 2019, the carrying amount of the Credit Receivables (recorded in Accounts receivable, net) was $73.3 million and $83.7 million, respectively, of which 96% was considered current at April 30, 2020 and 97% was considered current at April 30, 2019. Finance charges earned on Credit Receivables accounts were not significant.

At April 30, 2020, accounts receivable allowances totaled $34.2 million, compared to $33.0 million at January 31, 2020 and $31.5 million at April 30, 2019.

The Company's performance obligations consist primarily of transferring control of merchandise to customers. Sales are recognized upon transfer of control, which occurs when merchandise is taken in an

TIFFANY & CO.
11


"over-the-counter" transaction or upon receipt by a customer in a shipped transaction, such as through the Internet and catalog channels. Sales are reported net of returns, sales tax and other similar taxes. The Company excludes from the measurement of the transaction price all taxes assessed by a governmental authority and collected by the entity from a customer.

Shipping and handling fees billed to customers are recognized in net sales when control of the underlying merchandise is transferred to the customer. The related shipping and handling charges incurred by the Company represent fulfillment activities and are included in Cost of sales.

The Company maintains a reserve for potential product returns and records (as a reduction to sales and cost of sales) its provision for estimated product returns, which is determined based on historical experience.

As a practical expedient, the Company does not adjust the promised amount of consideration for the effects of a significant financing component when management expects, at contract inception, that the period between the transfer of a product to a customer and when the customer pays for that product is one year or less.

Additionally, outside of the U.S., the Company operates certain TIFFANY & CO. stores within various department stores. Sales transacted at these store locations are recognized upon transfer of control, which occurs when merchandise is taken in an "over-the-counter" transaction. The Company and these department store operators have distinct responsibilities and risks in the operation of such TIFFANY & CO. stores. The Company (i) owns and manages the merchandise; (ii) establishes retail prices; (iii) has merchandising, marketing and display responsibilities; and (iv) in almost all locations provides retail staff and bears the risk of inventory loss. The department store operators (i) provide and maintain store facilities; (ii) in almost all locations assume retail credit and certain other risks; and (iii) act for the Company in the sale of merchandise. In return for their services and use of their facilities, the department store operators retain a portion of net retail sales made in TIFFANY & CO. stores, which is recorded as rent expense within Selling, general and administrative expenses.

Merchandise Credits and Deferred Revenue. Merchandise credits and deferred revenue primarily represent outstanding gift cards sold to customers and outstanding credits issued to customers for returned merchandise. All such outstanding items may be tendered for future merchandise purchases. A gift card liability is established when the gift card is sold. A merchandise credit liability is established when a merchandise credit is issued to a customer for a returned item and the original sale is reversed. These liabilities are relieved when revenue is recognized for transactions in which a merchandise credit or gift card is used as a form of payment.

If merchandise credits or gift cards are not redeemed over an extended period of time (for example, approximately three to five years in the U.S.), the value associated with the merchandise credits or gift cards may be subject to remittance to the applicable jurisdiction in accordance with unclaimed property laws. The Company determines the amount of breakage income to be recognized on gift cards and merchandise credits using historical experience to estimate amounts that will ultimately not be redeemed. The Company recognizes such breakage income in proportion to redemption rates of the overall population of gift cards and merchandise credits.

In the three months ended April 30, 2020, the Company recognized net sales of approximately $13.0 million related to the Merchandise credits and deferred revenue balance that existed at January 31, 2020.

INCOME TAXES

The effective income tax rate for the three months ended April 30, 2020 was 28.0% versus 17.3% in the prior year. The increase in the effective income tax rate for the three months ended April 30, 2020 was primarily due to the jurisdictional mix of earnings, which are taxed at the statutory tax rates applicable to each jurisdiction, as well as an estimated increase in the Global Intangible Low-Taxed Income ("GILTI") tax, each of which reflects the impact of COVID-19 on the Company's results of operations. The Company's effective tax rate could be negatively impacted to the extent earnings are lower than anticipated in countries that have lower statutory rates and higher than anticipated in countries that have higher statutory rates. The effective income tax rate for the three months ended April 30, 2019 included the recognition of an income tax benefit of $7.5 million, or 500 basis points, related to an increase in the estimated 2018 Foreign Derived Intangible Income ("FDII") benefit as a result of U.S. Treasury guidance issued during the three months ended April 30, 2019.

On March 27, 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (The CARES Act) was enacted. The Company has analyzed the provisions, which provide for the full expensing of qualified leasehold improvements, modifications to charitable contribution and net operating loss limitations, modifications to the deductibility of business interest expense, as well as Alternative Minimum Tax ("AMT") credit acceleration. The enactment of this legislation did not have a significant impact on the effective income tax rate in the three months ended April 30, 2020.

During the three months ended April 30, 2020, the change in the gross amount of unrecognized tax benefits and accrued interest and penalties was not significant.

The Company conducts business globally and, as a result, is subject to taxation in the U.S. and various state and foreign jurisdictions. As a matter of course, tax authorities regularly audit the Company. The Company's tax filings are currently being examined by a number of tax authorities, both in the U.S. and in foreign jurisdictions. Ongoing audits where subsidiaries have a material presence include New York City (tax years 2011–2015) and New York State (tax years 2012–2018). Tax years from 2013–present are open to examination in the U.S. Federal jurisdiction and 2006–present are open in various state, local and foreign jurisdictions. As part of these audits, the Company engages in discussions with taxing authorities regarding tax positions. As of April 30, 2020, unrecognized tax benefits are not expected to change materially in the next 12 months. Future developments may result in a change in this assessment.

EARNINGS PER SHARE

Basic earnings per share ("EPS") is computed as net earnings divided by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS includes the dilutive effect of the assumed exercise of stock options and unvested restricted stock units.

On October 25, 2018, Registrant, along with certain of its subsidiaries designated as borrowers thereunder, entered into a five-year multi-bank, multi-currency committed unsecured revolving credit facility, including a letter of credit subfacility, consisting of basic commitments in an amount up to $750.0 million (which commitments may be increased, subject to certain conditions and limitations, at the request of Registrant) (the "Credit Facility"). During the three months ended April 30, 2020, the Company drew down $500.0 million on its Credit Facility as a precautionary measure in order to increase its cash position and maintain financial flexibility in light of uncertainty in the global markets resulting from COVID-19. This drawdown was permitted under the Merger Agreement.

TIFFANY & CO.

At April 30, 2020, the Company was in compliance with all debt covenants.

The agreements governing certain of the Company's material debt instruments include covenants that incorporate a (i) debt incurrence test premised on a fixed charge coverage ratio, which is the ratio of the Company's EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes) plus rent expense to its interest expense plus rent expense, and (ii) leverage ratio, which is the ratio of the Company's total adjusted debt to its consolidated EBITDAR (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and rent expenses). Specifically, under the terms of the Company's Senior Notes due 2026 and 2042, the Company is restricted from incurring, or permitting its subsidiaries to incur, indebtedness if, among other conditions, the Company's fixed charge coverage ratio is less than 2.0 to 1.0. Under the terms of the Credit Facility, the Guaranty in respect of the three-year, multi-bank revolving credit agreement entered into by the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, Tiffany & Co. (Shanghai) Commercial Company Limited (the "Shanghai Guaranty"), and the Company's Senior Notes due 2026 and 2042, the Company is required to maintain a maximum leverage ratio of 3.50 to 1.00 for the four quarter period ending as of the end of each fiscal quarter.

Based on the Company's forecasts and plans, the Company expected to remain in compliance with the leverage ratio financial maintenance covenant, although the impact of COVID-19 on the Company's EBIT could increase that leverage ratio. The Company also expected that it would not meet the fixed charge coverage ratio test for incurrence of additional debt under its Senior Notes as of the end of the second fiscal quarter of fiscal 2020, although it did not expect to need to incur additional debt within the next 12 months. Nonetheless, as a precautionary measure in order to maintain flexibility with respect to its liquidity sources and provide additional financial maintenance covenant headroom, the Company entered into amendments to its Credit Facility, the Shanghai Guaranty, and its Senior Notes due 2026 and 2042, in order to modify the financial maintenance covenant and, in the case of the Senior Notes due 2026 and 2042, the fixed charge coverage ratio test for debt incurrence, through and including the Company's fiscal quarter ending April 30, 2021. These amendments are permitted under the Merger Agreement.

These amendments were executed on June 8, 2020 and effect changes to certain provisions and covenants during the period beginning with the fiscal quarter ending July 31, 2020 and continuing through the fiscal quarter ending April 30, 2021 (such period of time, the "Covenant Relief Period"), including, among others: (a) an increase in the maximum leverage ratio under the Credit Facility, the Shanghai Guaranty, and the 2026 and 2042 Senior Notes, to 4.50 to 1.00; and (b) a reduction of the fixed charge coverage ratio in the 2026 and 2042 Senior Notes to 0.75 to 1.00.

During the Covenant Relief Period, the facility fee under the Credit Facility will be increased by 5 basis points at all pricing levels, and the applicable margin will be increased by (i) 10 basis points at all pricing levels through the quarter ending July 31, 2020, (ii) 20 basis points at all pricing levels from August 1, 2020 until November 1, 2020 and (iii) 30 basis points at all pricing levels from November 1, 2020 through April 30, 2021. The coupon rate under the 2026 and 2042 Senior Notes will be increased by 25 basis points during the Covenant Relief Period. The Company has the right to terminate the Covenant Relief Period under the Credit Facility, Shanghai Guaranty and the 2026 and 2042 Senior Notes, including the attendant covenant and pricing modifications referenced above, prior to April 30, 2021, subject to the Company's certification that its leverage ratio does not exceed 3.50 to 1.00 at such time.

HEDGING INSTRUMENTS

Background Information

The Company uses derivative financial instruments, including interest rate swaps, cross-currency swaps, forward contracts and net-zero-cost collar arrangements (combination of call and put option contracts) to mitigate a portion of its exposures to changes in interest rates, foreign currency exchange rates and precious metal prices.


TIFFANY & CO.

Derivative Instruments Designated as Hedging Instruments. If a derivative instrument meets certain hedge accounting criteria, it is recorded on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet at its fair value, as either an asset or a liability, with an offset to current or other comprehensive earnings, depending on whether the hedge is designated as one of the following on the date it is entered into:

Fair Value Hedge – A hedge of the exposure to changes in the fair value of a recognized asset or liability or an unrecognized firm commitment. For fair value hedge transactions, the changes in the fair value of the derivative and changes in the fair value of the item being hedged are recorded in current earnings.

Cash Flow Hedge – A hedge of the exposure to variability in the cash flows of a recognized asset, liability or a forecasted transaction. For cash flow hedge transactions, the changes in fair value of derivatives is reported as other comprehensive income ("OCI") and is recognized in current earnings in the period or periods during which the hedged transaction affects current earnings.

The Company formally documents the nature of and relationships between the hedging instruments and hedged items for a derivative to qualify as a hedge at inception and throughout the hedged period. The Company also documents its risk management objectives, strategies for undertaking the various hedge transactions and method of assessing hedge effectiveness. Additionally, for hedges of forecasted transactions, the significant characteristics and expected terms of a forecasted transaction must be identified, and it must be probable that each forecasted transaction will occur. Derivative financial instruments qualifying for hedge accounting must maintain a specified level of effectiveness between the hedge instrument and the item being hedged, both at inception and throughout the hedged period.

Derivative Instruments Not Designated as Hedging Instruments. Derivative instruments which do not meet the criteria to be designated as a hedge are recorded on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet at their fair values, as either assets or liabilities, with an offset to current earnings. The gains or losses on undesignated foreign exchange forward contracts substantially offset foreign exchange losses or gains on the underlying liabilities or transactions being hedged.

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

Types of Derivative Instruments

Interest Rate Swaps – In 2012, the Company entered into forward-starting interest rate swaps to hedge the impact of interest rate volatility on future interest payments associated with the anticipated incurrence of $250.0 million of debt which was incurred in July 2012. The Company accounted for the forward-starting interest rate swaps as cash flow hedges. The Company settled the interest rate swaps in 2012 and recorded a loss within accumulated other comprehensive loss. As of April 30, 2020, $15.8 million remains recorded as a loss in accumulated other comprehensive loss, which is being amortized over the term of the 2042 Notes to which the interest rate swaps related.

In 2014, the Company entered into forward-starting interest rate swaps to hedge the impact of interest rate volatility on future interest payments associated with the anticipated incurrence of long-term debt which was incurred in September 2014. The Company accounted for the forward-starting interest rate swaps as cash flow hedges. The Company settled the interest rate swaps in 2014 and recorded a loss within accumulated other comprehensive loss. As of April 30, 2020, $3.3 million remains recorded as a loss in accumulated other comprehensive loss, which is being amortized over the terms of the respective 2024 Notes or 2044 Notes to which the interest rate swaps related.

Cross-currency Swaps – In 2016, 2017 and 2019 the Company entered into cross-currency swaps to hedge the foreign currency exchange risk associated with Japanese yen-denominated and Euro-denominated intercompany loans. These cross-currency swaps are designated and accounted for as cash flow hedges. As of April 30, 2020, the notional amounts of cross-currency swaps accounted for as cash flow hedges and the respective maturity dates were as follows:

Foreign Exchange Forward Contracts – The Company uses foreign exchange forward contracts to offset a portion of the foreign currency exchange risks associated with foreign currency-denominated liabilities, intercompany transactions and forecasted purchases of merchandise between entities with differing functional currencies. The Company assesses hedge effectiveness based on the total changes in the foreign exchange forward contracts' cash flows. These foreign exchange forward contracts are designated and accounted for as either cash flow hedges or economic hedges that are not designated as hedging instruments.

The maximum term of the Company's outstanding foreign exchange forward contracts as of April 30, 2020 is 12 months.

Precious Metal Collars and Forward Contracts – The Company periodically hedges a portion of its forecasted purchases of precious metals for use in its internal manufacturing operations in order to manage the effect of volatility in precious metal prices. The Company may use either a combination of call and put option contracts in net-zero-cost collar arrangements ("precious metal collars") or forward contracts. For precious metal collars, if the price of the precious metal at the time of the expiration of the precious metal collar is

TIFFANY & CO.

within the call and put price, the precious metal collar expires at no cost to the Company. The Company accounts for its precious metal collars and forward contracts as cash flow hedges. The Company assesses hedge effectiveness based on the total changes in the precious metal collars and forward contracts' cash flows. As of April 30, 2020, the maximum term over which the Company is hedging its exposure to the variability of future cash flows for all forecasted precious metals transactions is 18 months. As of April 30, 2020, there were precious metal forward contracts outstanding for approximately 24,500 ounces of platinum, 474,800 ounces of silver and 69,800 ounces of gold.

As a result of increases in inventory resulting from decreased sales, as well as the full or partial temporary closure of certain of the Company's manufacturing facilities due to COVID-19, the Company has revised its projections for purchases of precious metals. Accordingly, certain hedged transactions that were previously considered to be probable are now deemed improbable and the Company has discontinued cash flow hedge accounting for the related precious metal forward contracts and reclassified net deferred hedging gains of $4.2 million from Accumulated OCI to Cost of sales on the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Earnings during the three months ended April 30, 2020. As of April 30, 2020, there were precious metal forward contracts outstanding not designated as hedging instruments for approximately 20,600 ounces of gold and 141,300 ounces of silver (included within the notional amounts disclosed above).

The pre-tax gains on derivatives not designated as hedging instruments were $8.3 million for the three months ended April 30, 2020 and were included in Other income, net. Such gains or losses were not significant in the three months ended April 30, 2019. The Company expects approximately $7.0 million of net pre-tax derivative gains included in accumulated other comprehensive loss at April 30, 2020 will be reclassified into earnings within the next 12 months. The actual amount reclassified will vary due to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates and precious metal prices.

For information regarding the location and amount of the derivative instruments in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet, see "Note 10. Fair Value of Financial Instruments."

Concentration of Credit Risk

A number of major international financial institutions are counterparties to the Company's derivative financial instruments. The Company enters into derivative financial instrument agreements only with counterparties meeting certain credit standards (an investment grade credit rating at the time of the agreement) and limits the amount of agreements or contracts it enters into with any one party. The Company may be exposed to credit losses in the event of nonperformance by individual counterparties or the entire group of counterparties.

FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. U.S. GAAP establishes a fair value hierarchy which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. U.S. GAAP prescribes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities, which are considered to be most reliable.

Level 2 – Observable market-based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data.

Level 3 – Unobservable inputs reflecting the reporting entity's own assumptions, which require the most judgment.

The Company's derivative instruments are considered Level 2 instruments for the purpose of determining fair value. The Company's foreign exchange forward contracts, as well as its put option contracts and cross-currency swaps, are primarily valued using the appropriate foreign exchange spot rates. The Company's precious metal forward contracts and collars are primarily valued using the relevant precious metal spot rate. For further information on the Company's hedging instruments and program, see "Note 9. Hedging Instruments."

The fair values of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities approximate their carrying values due to the short-term maturities of these assets and liabilities and as such are measured using Level 1 inputs. The fair value of debt with variable interest rates approximates carrying value and is measured using Level 2 inputs. The fair value of debt with fixed interest rates was determined using the quoted market prices of debt instruments with similar terms and maturities, which are considered Level 2 inputs. The total carrying value of short-term borrowings and long-term debt was approximately $1.5 billion and $1.0 billion at April 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, and the corresponding fair value was approximately $1.7 billion and $1.0 billion at April 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

LEASES

The Company leases certain office, distribution, retail and manufacturing facilities, land and equipment. Retail store leases may require the payment of minimum rentals and contingent rent based on a percentage of sales exceeding a stipulated amount. The lease agreements, which expire at various dates through 2062, are subject, in many cases, to renewal options and provide for the payment of taxes, insurance and maintenance. Certain leases contain escalation clauses resulting from the pass through of increases in operating costs, property taxes and the effect on costs from changes in consumer price indices.


TIFFANY & CO.
22


The Company determines its lease payments based on predetermined rent escalations (including escalations based on consumer price indices), rent-free periods and other incentives. The Company recognizes rent expense on a straight-line basis over the related terms of such leases, beginning from when the Company takes possession of the leased facility. Variable rents, including contingent rent based on a percentage of sales and adjustments to consumer price indices, are recorded in the period such amounts and adjustments are determined. Lease terms include renewal options when exercise of such options is reasonably certain and within the control of the Company. There is generally no readily determinable discount rate implicit in the Company's leases. Accordingly, the Company uses its incremental borrowing rate for a term that corresponds to the applicable lease term in order to measure its lease liabilities.

The amounts of the Company's right-of-use asset and current and non-current lease liabilities are presented separately on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of April 30, 2020 and 2019. Substantially all of the Company's leases are operating leases as of April 30, 2020 and 2019. The Company records lease expense within Cost of sales for leases of manufacturing facilities and within Selling, general and administrative expenses for all other leases.

COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

Litigation

Litigation Matters. The Company is from time to time involved in routine litigation incidental to the conduct of its business, including proceedings to protect its trademark rights, litigation with parties claiming infringement of patents and other intellectual property rights by the Company, litigation instituted by persons alleged to have been injured upon premises under the Company's control and litigation with present and former employees and customers. Although litigation with present and former employees is routine and incidental to the conduct of the Company's business, as well as for any business employing significant numbers of employees, such litigation can result in large monetary awards when a civil jury is allowed to determine compensatory and/or punitive damages for actions such as those claiming discrimination on the basis of age, gender, race, religion, disability or other legally-protected characteristic or for termination of employment that is wrongful or in violation of implied contracts. However, the Company believes that all such litigation currently pending to which it is a party or to which its properties are subject will be resolved without any material adverse effect on the Company's financial position, earnings or cash flows.

Gain Contingency. On February 14, 2013, Tiffany and Company and Tiffany (NJ) LLC (collectively, the "Tiffany plaintiffs") initiated a lawsuit against Costco Wholesale Corp. ("Costco") for trademark infringement, false designation of origin and unfair competition, trademark dilution and trademark counterfeiting (the "Costco Litigation"). The Tiffany plaintiffs sought injunctive relief, monetary recovery and statutory damages on account of Costco's use of "Tiffany" on signs in the jewelry cases at Costco stores used to describe certain diamond engagement rings that were not manufactured by Tiffany. Costco filed a counterclaim arguing that the TIFFANY trademark was a generic term for multi-pronged ring settings and seeking to have the trademark invalidated, modified or partially canceled in that respect. On September 8, 2015, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York (the "Court") granted the Tiffany plaintiffs' motion for summary judgment of liability in its entirety, dismissing Costco's genericism counterclaim and finding that Costco was liable for trademark infringement, trademark counterfeiting and unfair competition under New York law in its use of "Tiffany" on the above-referenced signs. On September 29, 2016, a

TIFFANY & CO.

civil jury rendered its verdict, finding that Costco's profits on the sale of the infringing rings should be awarded at $5.5 million, and further finding that an award of punitive damages was warranted. On October 5, 2016, the jury awarded $8.25 million in punitive damages. The aggregate award of $13.75 million was not final, as it was subject to post-verdict motion practice and ultimately to adjustment by the Court. On August 14, 2017, the Court issued its ruling, finding that the Tiffany plaintiffs are entitled to recover (i) $11.1 million in respect of Costco's profits on the sale of the infringing rings (which amount is three times the amount of such profits, as determined by the Court); (ii) prejudgment interest on such amount (calculated at the applicable statutory rate) from February 15, 2013 through August 14, 2017; (iii) an additional $8.25 million in punitive damages; and (iv) Tiffany's reasonable attorneys' fees, and, on August 24, 2017, the Court entered judgment in the amount of $21.0 million in favor of the Tiffany plaintiffs (reflecting items (i) through (iii) above). On February 7, 2019, the Court awarded the Tiffany plaintiffs $5.9 million in respect of the aforementioned attorneys' fees and costs, bringing the total judgment to $26.9 million. The Court has denied a motion made by Costco for a new trial; however, Costco has also filed an appeal from the judgment before the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. A three-judge panel presided over an appellate hearing on January 23, 2020, and that panel's decision is pending. As the Tiffany plaintiffs may not enforce the Court's judgment during the appeals process, the Company has not recorded any amount in its consolidated financial statements related to this gain contingency as of April 30, 2020. The Company expects that this matter will not ultimately be resolved until, at the earliest, a future date during the Company's fiscal year ending January 31, 2021.

Environmental Matter

In 2005, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA") designated a 17-mile stretch of the Passaic River (the "River") part of the Diamond Alkali "Superfund" site. This designation resulted from the detection of hazardous substances emanating from the site, which was previously home to the Diamond Shamrock Corporation, a manufacturer of pesticides and herbicides. Under the Superfund law, the EPA will negotiate with potentially responsible parties to agree on remediation approaches and may also enter into settlement agreements pursuant to an allocation process.

The Company, which operated a silverware manufacturing facility near a tributary of the River from approximately 1897 to 1985, is one of more than 300 parties (the "Potentially Responsible Parties") designated in litigation as potentially responsible parties with respect to the River. The EPA issued general notice letters to 125 of these parties. The Company, along with approximately 70 other Potentially Responsible Parties (collectively, the "Cooperating Parties Group" or "CPG") voluntarily entered into an Administrative Settlement Agreement and Order on Consent ("AOC") with the EPA in May 2007 to perform a Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study (the "RI/FS") of the lower 17 miles of the River. In June 2012, most of the CPG voluntarily entered into a second AOC related to focused remediation actions at Mile 10.9 of the River. The actions under the Mile 10.9 AOC are complete (except for continued monitoring), the Remedial Investigation ("RI") portion of the RI/FS was submitted to the EPA on February 19, 2015, and the Feasibility Study ("FS") portion of the RI/FS was submitted to the EPA on April 30, 2015. The Company nonetheless remained in the CPG until October 24, 2017. The Company has accrued for its financial obligations under both AOCs, which have not been material to its financial position or results of operations in previous financial periods or on a cumulative basis.

The FS presented and evaluated three options for remediating the lower 17 miles of the River, including the approach recommended by the EPA in its Focused Feasibility Study discussed below, as well as a fourth option of taking no action, and recommended an approach for a targeted remediation of the entire 17-mile stretch of the River. The estimated cost of the approach recommended by the CPG in the FS is approximately $483.0 million. The RI and FS are being reviewed by the EPA and other governmental agencies and stakeholders. Ultimately, the Company expects that the EPA will identify and negotiate with any or all of the potentially responsible parties regarding any remediation action that may be necessary, and issue a Record of Decision with a proposed approach to remediating the entire lower 17-mile stretch of the River.

Separately, on April 11, 2014, the EPA issued a proposed plan for remediating the lower eight miles of the River, which is supported by a Focused Feasibility Study (the "FFS"). The FFS evaluated three remediation options, as well as a fourth option of taking no action. Following a public review and comment period and the EPA's review of comments received, the EPA issued a Record of Decision on March 4, 2016 that set forth a remediation plan for the lower eight miles of the River (the "RoD Remediation"). The RoD Remediation is estimated by the EPA to cost $1.38 billion. The Record of Decision did not identify any party or parties as being responsible for the design of the remediation or for the remediation itself. The EPA did note that it estimates the design of the necessary remediation

activities will take three to four years, with the remediation to follow, which is estimated to take an additional six years to complete.

On March 31, 2016, the EPA issued a letter to approximately 100 companies (including the Company) (collectively, the "notified companies") notifying them of potential liability for the RoD Remediation and of the EPA's planned approach to addressing the cost of the RoD Remediation, which included the possibility of a de-minimis cash-out settlement (the "settlement option") for certain parties. In April of 2016, the Company notified the EPA of its interest in pursuing the settlement option, and accordingly recorded an immaterial liability representing its best estimate of its minimum liability for the RoD Remediation, which was based on the amount of a potential de-minimis settlement. On March 30, 2017, the EPA issued offers related to the settlement option to 20 parties; while the Company was not one of the parties receiving such an offer, the EPA indicated at that time that the settlement option might be made available to additional parties beyond those notified on March 30, 2017. On October 24, 2019, the EPA informed certain of the notified parties (including the Company) that the early settlement option would not be made available to them at that time.

In the absence of a viable settlement option with the EPA, the Company is unable to determine its participation in the overall RoD Remediation, if any, relative to the other potentially responsible parties, or the allocation of the estimated cost thereof among the potentially responsible parties, until such time as the EPA reaches an agreement with any potentially responsible party or parties to fund the RoD Remediation (or pursues legal or administrative action to require any potentially responsible party or parties to perform, or pay for, the RoD Remediation). With respect to the RI/FS (which is distinct from the RoD Remediation), until a Record of Decision is issued with respect to the RI/FS, neither the ultimate remedial approach for the remaining upper nine miles of the relevant 17-mile stretch of the River and its cost, nor the Company's participation, if any, relative to the other potentially responsible parties in this approach and cost, can be determined.

In October 2016, the EPA announced that it entered into a legal agreement with Occidental Chemical Corporation ("OCC"), pursuant to which OCC agreed to spend $165.0 million to perform the engineering and design work required in advance of the clean-up contemplated by the RoD Remediation. OCC has waived any rights to collect contribution from the Company (the "Waiver") for certain costs, including those associated with such engineering and design work, incurred by OCC through July 14, 2016. However, on June 29, 2018, OCC filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey against Tiffany and Company and 119 other companies (the "defendant companies") seeking to have the defendant companies reimburse OCC for certain response costs incurred by OCC in connection with its and its predecessors' remediation work relating to the River, other than those costs subject to the Waiver. OCC is also seeking a declaratory judgment to hold the defendant companies liable for their alleged shares of future response costs, including costs related to the RoD Remediation. The suit does not quantify damages sought, and the Company is unable to determine at this time whether, or to what extent, the OCC lawsuit will impact the cost allocation described in the immediately preceding paragraph or will otherwise result in any liabilities for the Company.

Given the uncertainties described above, the Company's liability, if any, beyond that already recorded for its obligation under the 2007 AOC and the Mile 10.9 AOC, cannot be determined at this time. However, the Company does not expect that its ultimate liability related to the relevant 17-mile stretch of the River will be material to its financial position, in light of the number of companies that have previously been identified as Potentially Responsible Parties (i.e., the more than 300 parties that were initially designated in litigation as potentially responsible parties), which includes, but goes well beyond those approximately 70 CPG member companies that participated in the 2007 AOC and the Mile 10.9 AOC, and the Company's relative participation in the costs related to the 2007 AOC and Mile 10.9 AOC. It is nonetheless possible that any resulting liability when the uncertainties discussed above are resolved could be material to the Company's results of operations or cash flows in the period in which such uncertainties are resolved.

In the normal course of business, the Company entrusts precious scrap metals generated through its internal manufacturing operations to metal refiners. In November 2018, one such refiner filed for relief under chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. As a result, the Company recognized a charge of $8.5 million during the three months ended October 31, 2018, which represented the carrying value of such precious scrap metals entrusted to the refiner, net of expected insurance recoveries. During the three months ended April 30, 2020, the Company was notified by its insurers that the Company's insurance claim was denied. Thereafter, the Company recognized a related

charge of $12.3 million in order to fully reserve for the asset representing the expected insurance recoveries in this matter. The Company believes that the insurers' coverage denial is without merit and that the Company's insurance claim is valid and enforceable. The Company will continue to pursue collection thereof from its insurers.

During 2018, the Company received an offer of AUD $48.0 million as compensation for the previous acquisition of the premises containing one of its leased retail stores and an administrative office in Sydney, Australia under compulsory acquisition laws in Australia. The Company did not accept the offer of compensation and filed an appeal of the compensation amount with the Land and Environment Court in Australia. In accordance with local law, the Company received an advance payment of 90% ($31.1 million, based on foreign currency exchange rates on the date of receipt) of the offered compensation during the fourth quarter of 2018. The Company did not recognize any gain at that time as the Company could not determine an amount, or any minimum amount, it ultimately expected to realize in connection with the matter during the appeals process. During the three months ended April 30, 2020, the Company accepted a revised offer of compensation of AUD $50.5 million and recognized a related gain of $31.4 million within Other income, net on the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Earnings.

Share Repurchase Program. In May 2018, the Registrant's Board of Directors approved a new share repurchase program (the "2018 Program"). The 2018 Program, which became effective June 1, 2018 and expires on January 31, 2022, authorizes the Company to repurchase up to $1.0 billion of its Common Stock through open market transactions, including through Rule 10b5-1 plans and one or more accelerated share repurchase or other structured repurchase transactions, and/or privately negotiated transactions. As of April 30, 2020, $471.6 million remained available under the 2018 Program; however, pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, and subject to certain limited exceptions, the Company may not repurchase its Common Stock other than in connection with the forfeiture provisions of Company equity awards or the cashless exercise or tax withholding provisions of such Company equity awards, in each case, granted under the Company's stock-based compensation plans. Accordingly, the Company did not repurchase any shares of its Common Stock during the three months ended April 30, 2020 pursuant to the 2018 Program, and does not expect to repurchase any shares of its Common Stock in connection with the 2018 Program prior to the Merger or earlier termination of the Merger Agreement.
