Harry Winston Diamond Corporation Reports Fiscal 2012 Fourth Quarter And Year-End Results (3)

The Company's shares are primarily traded on a Canadian dollar based exchange, and accordingly stock option information is presented in Canadian dollars, with conversion to US dollars at the average exchange rate for the year.

Compensation expense for stock options was $2.1 million for fiscal 2012 (2011 - $1.3 million) and is presented as a component of both cost of sales and selling, general and administrative expenses. The amount credited to share capital for the exercise of the options is the sum of (a) the cash proceeds received and (b) the amount debited to contributed surplus upon exercise of stock options by optionees (2012 - $0.6 million; 2011 - $2.8 million).

Changes in share options outstanding are as follows:
