|Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP requires management to use judgment and make estimates that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The level of uncertainty in estimates and assumptions increases with the length of time until the underlying transactions are completed. The most significant assumptions and estimates involved in preparing the financial statements include allowances for customer deductions, sales returns, sales discounts and credit losses, estimates of inventory net realizable value, the valuation of share-based compensation, the valuation of deferred taxes and the valuation of goodwill, intangible assets, operating lease right-of-use assets and property and equipment, along with the estimated useful lives assigned to these assets. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
The Company experiences certain effects of seasonality with respect to its business. The Company generally experiences greater sales during its third fiscal quarter, primarily driven by holiday season sales, and the lowest sales during its first fiscal quarter.
The Company accounts for contracts with its customers when there is approval and commitment from both parties, the rights of the parties and payment terms have been identified, the contract has commercial substance and collectability of consideration is probable. Revenue is recognized when control of the promised goods or services is transferred to the Company's customers in an amount that reflects the consideration the Company expects to be entitled to in exchange for goods or services. The Company recognizes retail store revenues when control of the product is transferred at the point of sale at Company owned stores, including concessions, net of estimated returns. Revenue from sales through the Company’s e-commerce sites is recognized at the time of delivery to the customer, reduced by an estimate of returns. Wholesale revenue is recognized net of estimates for sales returns, discounts, markdowns and allowances, after merchandise is shipped and control of the underlying product is transferred to the Company’s wholesale customers. To arrive at net sales for retail revenue, gross sales are reduced by actual customer returns as well as by a provision for estimated future customer returns, which is based on management’s review of historical and future customer return expectations. Sales taxes collected from retail customers are presented on a net basis and, as such, are excluded from revenue. To arrive at net sales for wholesale revenue, gross sales are reduced by provisions for estimated future returns, based on current expectations, as well as trade discounts, markdowns, allowances, operational chargebacks, and certain cooperative selling expenses. These estimates are based on such factors as
historical trends, actual and forecasted performance and current market conditions, which are reviewed by management on a quarterly basis.
The following table details the activity and balances of the Company’s sales reserves for the fiscal years ended March 27, 2021, March 28, 2020, and March 30, 2019 (in millions):
|Fiscal Year Ended March 27, 2021||$||12 ||$||176 ||$||(168)||$||20 |
|Fiscal Year Ended March 28, 2020||15 ||231 ||(234)||12 |
|Fiscal Year Ended March 30, 2019||12 ||226 ||(223)||15 |
|Total Sales Reserves:|
|Fiscal Year Ended March 27, 2021||$||154 ||$||137 ||$||(213)||$||78 |
|Fiscal Year Ended March 28, 2020||112 ||266 ||(224)||154 |
|Fiscal Year Ended March 30, 2019||109 ||262 ||(259)||112 |
Royalty revenue generated from product licenses, which includes contributions for advertising, is based on reported sales of licensed products bearing the Company’s trademarks at rates specified in the license agreements. These agreements are also subject to contractual minimum levels. Royalty revenue generated by geographic licensing agreements is recognized as it is earned under the licensing agreements based on reported sales of licensees applicable to specified periods, as outlined in the agreements. These agreements allow for the use of the Company’s tradenames to sell its branded products in specific geographic regions.
The adverse impact from the COVID-19 pandemic which includes, but is not limited to, temporary retail store closures, wholesale customer store closures, a reduction in retail store traffic, a decline in international tourism and a decrease in consumer consumption is reflected in the Company's Fiscal 2021 and Fiscal 2020 total revenue.
The Company offers a loyalty program, which allows its Michael Kors U.S. customers to earn points on qualifying purchases toward monetary and non-monetary rewards, which may be redeemed for purchases at Michael Kors retail stores and e-commerce sites. The Company defers a portion of the initial sales transaction based on the estimated relative fair value of the benefits based on projected timing of future redemptions and historical activity. These amounts include estimated “breakage” for points that are not expected to be redeemed. The contract liability, net of an estimated “breakage,” is recorded within accrued expenses and other current liabilities in the Company’s consolidated balance sheets and is expected to be recognized within the next 12 months. See Note 3 for additional information.
Advertising and Marketing Costs
Advertising and marketing costs are generally expensed when the advertisement is first exhibited and are recorded in selling, general and administrative expenses in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive (loss) income. Advertising and marketing expense was $137 million, $201 million and $158 million in Fiscal 2021, Fiscal 2020 and Fiscal 2019, respectively.
Cooperative advertising expense, which represents the Company’s participation in advertising expenses of its wholesale customers, is reflected as a reduction of net sales. Expenses related to cooperative advertising for Fiscal 2021, Fiscal 2020 and Fiscal 2019, were $3 million, $7 million and $8 million, respectively.
Shipping and Handling
Freight-in expenses are recorded as part of cost of goods sold, along with product costs and other costs to acquire inventory. The costs of preparing products for sale, including warehousing expenses, are included in selling, general and administrative expenses in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive (loss) income. Selling, general and administrative expenses also include the costs of shipping products to the Company’s e-commerce customers. Shipping and handling costs included within selling, general and administrative expenses in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive (loss) income were $160 million, $157 million and $132 million for Fiscal 2021, Fiscal 2020 and Fiscal 2019, respectively. Shipping and handling costs charged to customers are included in total revenue.
COVID-19 Related Government Assistance and Subsidies
As there is no definitive guidance under U.S. GAAP, the Company has applied the guidance under International Accounting Standards 20, Accounting for Government Grants and Disclosure of Government Assistance ("IAS 20"). The Company has elected to follow the income approach under IAS 20 and recognize these funds as a reduction to the related expense in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive (loss) income. During Fiscal 2021, the Company recognized $37 million related to government assistance and subsidies.
Cash, Cash Equivalents and Restricted Cash
All highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less are considered to be cash equivalents. Included in the Company’s cash and cash equivalents as of March 27, 2021 and March 28, 2020 are credit card receivables of $25 million and $4 million, respectively, which generally settle within two to three business days. The increase in credit card receivables year over year is mainly due to the impact on sales from COVID-19.
A reconciliation of cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash as of March 27, 2021 and March 28, 2020 from the consolidated balance sheets to the consolidated statements of cash flows is as follows:
| ||Fiscal Years Ended|
| ||March 27,|
|Reconciliation of cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash|
|Cash and cash equivalents||$||232 ||$||592 |
|Restricted cash included within prepaid expenses and other current assets||2 ||— |
|Total cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash shown in the consolidated statements of cash flows||$||234 ||$||592 |
Inventories primarily consist of finished goods with the exception of raw materials and work in process inventory. The combined total of raw materials and work in process inventory recorded on the Company's consolidated balance sheets as of March 27, 2021 and March 28, 2020 were $28 million and $27 million, respectively. Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Cost is determined using the weighted-average cost method. Costs include amounts paid to independent manufacturers, plus duties and freight to bring the goods to the Company’s warehouses, as well as shipments to stores. The Company continuously evaluates the composition of its inventory and makes adjustments when the cost of inventory is not expected to be fully recoverable. The net realizable value of the Company’s inventory is estimated based on historical experience, current and forecasted demand, and market conditions. In addition, reserves for inventory losses are estimated based on historical experience and physical inventory counts. The Company’s inventory reserves are estimates, which could vary significantly from actual results if future economic conditions, customer demand or competition differ from expectations. Our historical estimates of these adjustments have not differed materially from actual results.
The net realizable value of the Company's inventory as of March 27, 2021 and March 28, 2020 includes the adverse impacts connected to the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes the impact from temporary retail store closures, wholesale customer store closures, reductions in retail store traffic, a decline in international tourism and a decrease in consumer consumption.
Store Pre-opening Costs
Costs associated with the opening of new retail stores and start up activities, are expensed as incurred.
Property and Equipment
Property and equipment is stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and amortization (carrying value). Depreciation is recorded on a straight-line basis over the expected remaining useful lives of the related assets. Equipment, furniture and fixtures, are depreciated over to seven years, computer hardware and software are depreciated over to five years. The Company’s share of the cost of constructing in-store shop displays within its wholesale customers’ floor-space (“shop-in-shops”), which is paid directly to third-party suppliers, is capitalized as property and equipment and is generally amortized over a useful life of to five years. Leasehold improvements are amortized using the straight-line method over the shorter of the estimated remaining useful lives of the related assets or the remaining lease term, including highly probable renewal periods. The Company includes all depreciation and amortization expense as a component of total operating expenses, as the underlying long-lived assets are not directly or indirectly related to bringing the Company’s products to their existing location and condition. Maintenance and repairs are charged to expense in the year incurred.
The Company capitalizes, in property and equipment, direct costs incurred during the application development stage and the implementation stage for developing, purchasing or otherwise acquiring software for its internal use. These costs are amortized over the estimated useful lives of the software, generally five years. All costs incurred during the preliminary project stage, including project scoping and identification and testing of alternatives, are expensed as incurred.
Definite-Lived Intangible Assets
The Company’s definite-lived intangible assets consist of trademarks and customer relationships which are stated at cost less accumulated amortization. The Company’s customer relationships are amortized over to eighteen years. Reacquired rights recorded in connection with the acquisition of Michael Kors (HK) Limited and Subsidiaries (“MKHKL”) are amortized through March 31, 2041, the original expiration date of the Michael Kors license agreement in the Greater China region. The trademark for the Michael Kors brand is amortized over twenty years.
The Company evaluates all long-lived assets, including operating lease right-of-use assets, property and equipment and definite-lived intangible assets, for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of any such asset may not be recoverable. For the purposes of impairment testing, the Company groups long-lived assets at the lowest level of identifiable cash flow. The leasehold improvements are typically amortized over the life of the store lease, including reasonably assured renewals and the shop-in-shops are amortized over a useful life of or four years. The Company's impairment testing is based on its best estimate of the future operating cash flows. If the sum of our estimated undiscounted future cash flows associated with the asset is less than the asset’s carrying value, the Company would recognize an impairment charge, which is measured as the amount by which the carrying value exceeds the fair value of the asset. The fair values determined by management require significant judgment and include certain assumptions regarding future sales and expense growth rates, discount rates and estimates of real estate market fair values. As such, these estimates may differ from actual results and are affected by future market and economic conditions.
During Fiscal 2021, Fiscal 2020 and Fiscal 2019, the Company recorded impairment charges of $158 million, $357 million and $21 million, respectively, which were primarily related to operating lease right-of-use assets and fixed assets of our retail store locations. Please refer to Note 8, Note 9 and Note 14 for additional information.
Goodwill and Other Indefinite-lived Intangible Assets
The Company records intangible assets based on their fair value on the date of acquisition. Goodwill is recorded as the difference between the fair value of the purchase consideration and the fair value of the net identifiable tangible and intangible assets acquired. The brand intangible assets recorded in connection with the acquisitions of Versace and Jimmy Choo were determined to be indefinite-lived intangible assets, which are not subject to amortization. The Company performs an impairment assessment of goodwill, as well as the Versace brand and Jimmy Choo brand intangible assets on an annual basis, or whenever impairment indicators exist. In the absence of any impairment indicators, goodwill, the Versace brand and the Jimmy Choo brand are assessed for impairment during the fourth quarter of each fiscal year. Judgments regarding the existence of impairment indicators are based on market conditions and operational performance of the business.
The Company may assess its goodwill and its brand intangible assets for impairment initially using a qualitative approach to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of these assets is greater than their carrying value. When performing a qualitative test, the Company assesses various factors, including industry and market conditions, macroeconomic conditions and performance of its businesses. If the results of the qualitative assessment indicate that it is more likely than not that our goodwill and other indefinite-lived intangible assets are impaired, a quantitative impairment analysis is performed to determine if impairment is required. The Company may also elect to perform a quantitative analysis of goodwill and its indefinite-lived intangible assets initially rather than using a qualitative approach.
The impairment testing for goodwill is performed at the reporting unit level. The Company uses industry accepted valuation models and set criteria that are reviewed and approved by various levels of management and, in certain instances, it engages independent third-party valuation specialists. To determine the fair value of a reporting unit, the Company uses a combination of the income and market approaches, when applicable. The Company believes the blended use of both models, when applicable, compensates for the inherent risk associated with either model if used on a stand-alone basis, and this combination is indicative of the factors a market participant would consider when performing a similar valuation. If the fair value of a reporting unit exceeds the related carrying value, the reporting unit’s goodwill is considered not to be impaired and no further testing is performed. If the carrying value of a reporting unit exceeds its fair value, an impairment loss is recorded for the difference. These valuations are affected by certain estimates, including future revenue growth rates, future operating expense growth rates, gross margins and discount rates. Future events could cause us to conclude that impairment indicators exist, and goodwill may be impaired.
When performing a quantitative impairment assessment of our brand intangible assets, the fair value of the Versace and the Jimmy Choo brands is estimated using a discounted cash flow analysis based on the "relief from royalty" method, assuming that a third party would be willing to pay a royalty in lieu of ownership for this intangible asset. This approach is dependent on many factors, including estimates of future revenue growth rates, royalty rates and discount rates. Actual future results may differ from these estimates. An impairment loss is recognized when the estimated fair value of the brand intangible assets is less than its carrying amount.
During the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2021, the Company performed its annual goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets impairment analysis for each brand. Based on qualitative impairment assessment of the Michael Kors reporting units, the Company concluded that it is more likely than not that the fair value of the Michael Kors reporting units exceeded its carrying value and, therefore, was not impaired. The Company elected to perform quantitative impairment analysis for both the Versace and Jimmy Choo reporting units, using a combination of income and market approaches to estimate the fair values of each brands' reporting units. The Company also elected to perform an impairment analysis for both the Versace and Jimmy Choo brand intangible assets using an income approach to estimate the fair values. Based on the results of these assessments, the Company determined there was no impairment loss for the Jimmy Choo retail reporting unit as its fair value is approximately 3% higher than the carrying value, which has a goodwill balance of $221 million. The Company also concluded that the fair values of the Versace reporting units and the brand intangible assets exceeded the related carrying amounts and no impairment was required. The fair value of the Versace retail reporting unit, Versace wholesale reporting unit and Versace licensing reporting unit are at least 20% higher than their respective carrying values. The fair value of the Versace retail brand and Versace wholesale brand are more than 10% higher than their respective carrying values.
However, the Company concluded that the fair values of the Jimmy Choo wholesale and Jimmy Choo licensing reporting units, along with the Jimmy Choo brand intangible assets, did not exceed their related carrying amounts. These impairment charges were primarily related to higher discount rates in the current year driven by a change in market factors as well as a shift in expected revenue and earnings mix to the retail segment.
Accordingly, the Company recorded impairment charges of $94 million related to the Jimmy Choo wholesale and Jimmy Choo licensing reporting units and $69 million related to the Jimmy Choo brand intangible assets during Fiscal 2021. The Company recorded impairment charges of $171 million related to the Jimmy Choo retail and Jimmy Choo licensing reporting units and $180 million related to the Jimmy Choo brand intangible assets during Fiscal 2020. The impairment charges were recorded within impairment of assets on our consolidated statement of operations and comprehensive (loss) income for the fiscal years ended March 27, 2021 and March 28, 2020. The Company did not incur any impairment charges in Fiscal 2019. See Note 9 for information relating to its annual impairment analysis performed during the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2021, Fiscal 2020 and Fiscal 2019.
It is possible that the Company's conclusions regarding impairment or recoverability of goodwill or other indefinite intangible assets could change in future periods if, for example, (i) the Company's businesses do not perform as projected, (ii) overall economic conditions in future years vary from current assumptions, (iii) business conditions or strategies change from our current assumptions, (iv) discount rates change, (v) market multiples change or (vi) the identification of the Company's reporting units change, among other factors. Such changes could result in a future impairment charge of goodwill or other indefinite-lived intangible assets.
The Company uses a combination of insurance and self-insurance programs, including a wholly-owned captive insurance entity, to provide for the potential liabilities for certain risks, including workers’ compensation and employee-related health care benefits. The Company also maintains stop-loss coverage with third-party insurers to limit its exposure arising from claims. Self-insurance claims filed and claims incurred but not reported are accrued based upon management’s estimates of the discounted cost for self-insured claims incurred using actuarial assumptions, historical loss experience, actual payroll and other data. Although the Company believes that it can reasonably estimate losses related to these claims, actual results could differ from these estimates.
The Company also maintains other types of customary business insurance policies, including general liability, marine transport and inventory and business interruption insurance. Insurance recoveries represent gain contingencies and are recorded upon actual settlement with the insurance carrier.
The Company grants share-based awards to certain employees and directors of the Company. The grant date fair value of share options is calculated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The Company uses its own historical experience in determining the expected holding period and volatility of its time-based share option awards. The risk-free interest rate is derived from the zero-coupon United States (“U.S.”) Treasury Strips yield curve based on the grant’s estimated holding period. Determining the grant date fair value of share-based awards requires considerable judgment, including estimating expected volatility, expected term and risk-free rate. If factors change and the Company employs different assumptions, the fair value of future awards and the resulting share-based compensation expense may differ significantly from what the Company has estimated in the past.
The closing market price of the Company’s shares on the date of grant is used to determine the grant date fair value of restricted shares, time-based restricted stock units (“RSUs") and performance-based RSUs. These fair values are recognized as expense over the requisite service period, net of estimated forfeitures, based on expected attainment of pre-established performance goals for performance grants, or the passage of time for those grants which have only time-based vesting requirements.
Foreign Currency Translation and Transactions
The financial statements of the majority of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries are measured using the local currency as the functional currency. The Company’s functional currency is the United States Dollar (“USD”) for Capri and its United States based subsidiaries. Assets and liabilities are translated using period-end exchange rates, while revenues and expenses are translated using average exchange rates over the reporting period. The resulting translation adjustments are recorded separately in shareholders’ equity as a component of accumulated other comprehensive (loss) income. Foreign currency income and losses resulting from the re-measuring of transactions denominated in a currency other than the functional currency of a particular entity are included in foreign currency (gain) loss on the Company’s consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive (loss) income.
Derivative Financial Instruments
Forward Foreign Currency Exchange Contracts
The Company uses forward currency exchange contracts to manage its exposure to fluctuations in foreign currency for certain transactions. The Company, in its normal course of business, enters into transactions with foreign suppliers and seeks to minimize risks related to these transactions. The Company employs these forward currency contracts to hedge the Company’s cash flows, as they relate to foreign currency transactions. Certain of these contracts are designated as hedges for accounting purposes, while others remain undesignated. All of the Company’s derivative instruments are recorded in the Company’s consolidated balance sheets at fair value on a gross basis, regardless of their hedge designation.
In connection with the September 24, 2018 definitive agreement to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Versace, the Company entered into forward foreign currency exchange contracts with notional amounts totaling €1.680 billion (approximately $2.001 billion) to mitigate its foreign currency exchange risk through the expected closing date of the acquisition, which were settled on December 21, 2018. This derivative contract was not designated as an accounting hedge. Therefore, changes in fair value were recorded to foreign currency loss (gain) in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive (loss) income. The Company’s accounting policy is to classify cash flows from derivative instruments in the same category as the cash flows from the items being hedged. Accordingly, the Company classified $77 million of realized losses relating to this derivative instrument within cash flows from investing activities during Fiscal 2019.
The Company designates certain contracts related to the purchase of inventory that qualify for hedge accounting as cash flow hedges. Formal hedge documentation is prepared for all derivative instruments designated as hedges, including description of the hedged item and the hedging instrument and the risk being hedged. The changes in the fair value for contracts designated as cash flow hedges is recorded in equity as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) until the hedged item affects earnings. When the inventory related to forecasted inventory purchases that are being hedged is sold to a third party, the gains or losses deferred in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) are recognized within cost of goods sold. The Company uses regression analysis to assess effectiveness of derivative instruments that are designated as hedges, which compares the change in the fair value of the derivative instrument to the change in the related hedged item. If the hedge is no longer expected to be highly effective in the future, future changes in the fair value are recognized in earnings. For those contracts that are not designated as hedges, changes in the fair value are recorded to foreign currency (gain) loss in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive (loss) income. The Company classifies cash flows relating to its forward foreign currency exchange contracts related to purchase of inventory consistently with the classification of the hedged item, within cash flows from operating activities.
The Company is exposed to the risk that counterparties to derivative contracts will fail to meet their contractual obligations. In order to mitigate counterparty credit risk, the Company only enters into contracts with carefully selected financial institutions based upon their credit ratings and certain other financial factors, adhering to established limits for credit exposure. The aforementioned forward contracts generally have a term of no more than 12 months. The period of these contracts is directly related to the foreign transaction they are intended to hedge.
Net Investment Hedges
The Company also uses fixed-to-fixed cross currency swap agreements to hedge its net investments in foreign operations against future volatility in the exchange rates between its U.S. Dollars and these foreign currencies. The Company has elected the spot method of designating these contracts under ASU 2017-12, “Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): Targeted Improvements to Accounting for Hedging Activities,” and has designated these contracts as net investment hedges. The net gain or (loss) on the net investment hedge is reported within foreign currency translation gains and losses (“CTA”), as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) on the Company’s consolidated balance sheets. Interest accruals and coupon payments are recognized directly in interest expense in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive (loss) income. Upon discontinuation of a hedge, all previously recognized amounts remain in CTA until the net investment is sold, diluted or liquidated.
During the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2020, the Company terminated all of its net investment hedges related to its Euro-denominated subsidiaries. The early termination of these hedges resulted in the Company receiving $296 million in cash during the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2020. During Fiscal 2021, the Company resumed its normal hedging program and entered into multiple fixed-to-fixed cross-currency swap agreements to hedge its net investment in Euro-denominated and Japanese Yen-denominated subsidiaries against future volatility in the exchange rate between the U.S. Dollar and these currencies.
Interest Rate Swap Agreements
The Company also uses interest rate swap agreements to hedge the variability of its cash flows resulting from floating interest rates on the Company’s borrowings. When an interest rate swap agreement qualifies for hedge accounting as a cash flow hedge, the changes in the fair value are recorded in equity as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) and are reclassified into interest expense in the same period during which the hedged transactions affect earnings.
Deferred income tax assets and liabilities have been provided for temporary differences between the tax bases and financial reporting bases of the Company’s assets and liabilities using the tax rates and laws in effect for the periods in which the differences are expected to reverse. The Company periodically assesses the realizability of deferred tax assets and the adequacy of deferred tax liabilities, based on the results of local, state, federal or foreign statutory tax audits or estimates and judgments used.
Realization of deferred tax assets associated with net operating loss and tax credit carryforwards is dependent upon generating sufficient taxable income prior to their expiration in the applicable tax jurisdiction. The Company periodically reviews the recoverability of its deferred tax assets and provides valuation allowances, as deemed necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to amounts that more-likely-than-not will be realized. The Company’s management considers many factors when assessing the likelihood of future realization of deferred tax assets, including recent earnings within various taxing jurisdictions, expectations of future taxable income, the carryforward periods remaining and other factors. Changes in the required valuation allowance are recorded in income in the period such determination is made. Deferred tax assets could be reduced in the future if the Company’s estimates of taxable income during the carryforward period are significantly reduced or alternative tax strategies are no longer viable.
The Company recognizes the impact of an uncertain income tax position taken on its income tax returns at the largest amount that is more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon audit by the relevant taxing authority. An uncertain income tax position will be recognized if it has less than a 50% likelihood of being sustained. The tax positions are analyzed periodically (at least quarterly) and adjustments are made as events occur that warrant adjustments for those positions. The Company records interest expense and penalties payable to relevant tax authorities as income tax expense.
On March 31, 2019, the Company adopted ASU 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842),” which requires lessees to recognize a lease liability and a right-of-use asset on the balance sheet for all leases, except certain short-term leases. The Company adopted the new standard recognizing a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption without restating the comparative prior year periods.
The Company leases retail stores, office space and warehouse space under operating lease agreements that expire at various dates through September 2043. The Company’s leases generally have terms of up to 10 years, generally require a fixed annual rent and may require the payment of additional rent if store sales exceed a negotiated amount. Although most of the Company’s equipment is owned, the Company has limited equipment leases that expire on various dates through November 2024. The Company acts as sublessor in certain leasing arrangements, primarily related to closed stores under its restructuring initiatives, as defined in Note 11. Fixed sublease payments received are recognized on a straight-line basis over the sublease term. The Company determines the sublease term based on the date it provides possession to the subtenant through the expiration date of the sublease.
The Company recognizes operating lease right-of-use assets and lease liabilities at lease commencement date, based on the present value of fixed lease payments over the expected lease term. The Company uses its incremental borrowing rates to determine the present value of fixed lease payments based on the information available at the lease commencement date, as the rate implicit in the lease is not readily determinable for the Company’s leases. The Company’s incremental borrowing rates are based on the term of the leases, the economic environment of the leases and reflect the expected interest rate it would incur to borrow on a secured basis. Certain leases include one or more renewal options, generally for the same period as the initial term of the lease. The exercise of lease renewal options is generally at the Company’s sole discretion and as such, the Company typically determines that exercise of these renewal options is not reasonably certain. As a result, the Company generally does not include the renewal option period in the expected lease term and the associated lease payments are not included in the measurement of the operating lease right-of-use asset and lease liability. Certain leases also contain termination options with an associated penalty. Generally, the Company is reasonably certain not to exercise these options and as such, they are not
included in the determination of the expected lease term. The Company recognizes operating lease expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term.
Leases with an initial lease term of 12 months or less are not recorded on the balance sheet. The Company recognizes lease expense for its short-term leases on a straight-line basis over the lease term.
The Company’s leases generally provide for payments of non-lease components, such as common area maintenance, real estate taxes and other costs associated with the leased property. The Company accounts for lease and non-lease components of its real estate leases together as a single lease component and, as such, includes fixed payments of non-lease components in the measurement of the operating lease right-of-use assets and lease liabilities for its real estate leases. Variable lease payments, such as percentage rentals based on location sales, periodic adjustments for inflation, reimbursement of real estate taxes, any variable common area maintenance and any other variable costs associated with the leased property, are expensed as incurred as variable lease costs and are not recorded on the balance sheet. The Company’s lease agreements do not contain any material residual value guarantees or material restrictions or covenants.
Debt Issuance Costs and Unamortized Discounts
The Company defers debt issuance costs directly associated with acquiring third party financing. These debt issuance costs and any discounts on issued debt are amortized on a straight-line basis, which approximates the effective interest method, as interest expense over the term of the related indebtedness. Deferred financing fees associated with the Company’s Revolving Credit Facilities are primarily recorded within other assets in the Company’s consolidated balance sheets. Deferred financing fees and unamortized discounts associated with the Company’s other borrowings are primarily recorded as an offset to long-term debt in the Company’s consolidated balance sheets. See Note 12 for additional information.
Net (Loss) Income per Share
The Company’s basic net (loss) income per ordinary share is calculated by dividing net (loss) income by the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net (loss) income per ordinary share reflects the potential dilution that would occur if share option grants or any other potentially dilutive instruments, including restricted shares and RSUs, were exercised or converted into ordinary shares. These potentially dilutive securities are included in diluted shares to the extent they are dilutive under the treasury stock method for the applicable periods. Performance-based RSUs are included in diluted shares if the related performance conditions are considered satisfied as of the end of the reporting period and to the extent they are dilutive under the treasury stock method.
The components of the calculation of basic net (loss) income per ordinary share and diluted net (loss) income per ordinary share are as follows (in millions, except share and per share data):
| ||Fiscal Years Ended|
| ||March 27,|
|Net (loss) income attributable to Capri||$||(62)||$||(223)||$||543 |
|Basic weighted average shares||150,453,568 ||150,714,598 ||149,765,468 |

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments
On March 29, 2020, the Company adopted ASU No. 2016-13, “Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments” (“ASU 2016-13”), which amends the guidance on measuring credit losses for certain financial assets measured at amortized cost, including trade receivables. The Financial Accounting Standards Board has subsequently issued several updates to the standard, providing additional guidance on certain topics covered by the standard. This update requires entities to recognize an allowance for credit losses using a forward-looking expected loss impairment model, taking into consideration historical experience, current conditions and supportable forecasts that impact collectability. The adoption of this update did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
Implementation Costs Associated with Cloud Computing Arrangements
On March 29, 2020, the Company adopted ASU No. 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"), which provides guidance related to the accounting for implementation costs incurred in a cloud computing arrangement that is a service contract. The guidance aligns the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred in a hosting arrangement that is a service contract with the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred to develop or obtain internal-use software and hosting arrangements that include an internal-use software license. The adoption of this update did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Reference Rate Reform
In March 2020, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued ASU 2020-04, "Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting" and in January 2021, issued ASU 2021-01, "Reference Rate Reform: Scope". Both of these updates aim to ease the potential burden in accounting for reference rate reform. These updates provide optional expedients and exceptions, if certain criteria are met, for applying accounting principles generally accepted in the United States to contract modifications, hedging relationships and other transactions affected by the expected market transition from the London interbank offered rate (“LIBOR”) and other interbank offered rates to alternative reference rates, such as the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (“SOFR”). The amendments were effective upon issuance and allow companies to adopt the amendments on a prospective basis through December 31, 2022. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of these updates on its consolidated financial statements.
