Tiffany Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year Results

Outlook for 2012:

Management’s outlook for the full year ending January 31, 2013 is based on the following assumptions (which may or may not prove valid):
     

a)

 

Worldwide net sales (in U.S. dollars) increasing by approximately 10%, primarily driven by sales growth in Asia-Pacific and the Americas.

b)

Adding a net of 24 Company-operated stores including nine in the Americas, seven in Asia-Pacific, three in Europe, and commencing operation of five stores in the United Arab Emirates.

c)

The operating margin approximately unchanged from the prior year (excluding nonrecurring items recorded in 2011).

d)

Interest and other expenses, net approximately equal to the prior year.

e)

An effective income tax rate of approximately 34 - 35%.

f)

Net earnings per diluted share in a range of $3.95 - $4.05, or a 16% - 19% increase over the prior year. Excluding the nonrecurring costs recorded in fiscal 2011, this represents growth of 10% - 13% over 2011’s $3.60 per diluted share. Most of the expected earnings growth is expected to occur in the latter part of 2012.

g)

Net inventories increasing approximately 15%.

h)

Capital expenditures of approximately $240 million.
