This press release may contain certain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws, including Section 27A of the Securities Act and Section 21E of the Exchange Act, and are based on management’s current expectations, that involve risks and uncertainties that could cause our actual results to differ materially from our current expectations. In this context, forward-looking statements often address expected future business and financial performance and financial condition, and often contain words such as “may,” “can,” “continue,” “project,” “should,” “expect,” “confidence,” “goals,” “trends,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “estimate,” “on track,” “future,” “well positioned to,” “plan,” “potential,” “position,” “believe,” “seek,” “see,” “will,” “would,” “target,” similar expressions, and variations or negatives of these words. Forward-looking statements by their nature address matters that are, to different degrees, uncertain. Such statements involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. If such risks or uncertainties materialize or such assumptions prove incorrect, our results could differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements and assumptions. All statements other than statements of historical fact are statements that could be deemed forward-looking statements. We assume no obligation to revise or update any such forward-looking statements for any reason, except as required by law. Our actual results could differ materially from the results contemplated by these forward-looking statements and are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties, estimates and assumptions that may cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations due to a number of factors, including, but not limited to: the impact of economic conditions, recession and inflationary measures; the impact of the coronavirus pandemic; our exposure to international risks, including currency fluctuations and changes in economic or political conditions in the markets where we sell or source our products; our ability to retain the value of our brands and to respond to changing fashion and retail trends in a timely manner, including our ability to execute on our e-commerce and digital strategies; our ability to successfully implement the initiatives under our 2025 growth strategy; the effect of existing and new competition in the marketplace; our ability to control costs; the effect of seasonal and quarterly fluctuations on our sales or operating results; the risk of cyber security threats and privacy or data security breaches; our ability to protect against infringement of our trademarks and other proprietary rights; the impact of tax and other legislation; the risks associated with potential changes to international trade agreements and the imposition of additional duties on importing our products; our ability to achieve intended benefits, cost savings and synergies from acquisitions, including our proposed acquisition of Capri Holdings Limited; the impact of pending and potential future legal proceedings; and the risks associated with climate change and other corporate responsibility issues.
These factors are not necessarily all of the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in any of our forward-looking statements. A detailed discussion of significant risk factors that have the potential to cause our actual results to differ materially from our expectations is described in “Risk Factors” on in Part I, Item 1A of the 2023 Form 10-K, which we have filed with the

Prohibition of Sales to
The Notes are not intended to be offered, sold or otherwise made available to and should not be offered, sold or otherwise made available to any retail investor in the European Economic Area (the “EEA”). For these purposes, a retail investor means a person who is one (or more) of: (i) a retail client as defined in point (11) of Article 4(1) of Directive 2014/65/EU (as amended, “MiFID II); or (ii) a customer within the meaning of Directive (EU) 2016/97 (as amended, the “Insurance Distribution Directive”) where that customer would not qualify as a professional client as defined in point (10) of Article 4(1) of MiFID II. Consequently no key information document required by Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 (as amended, the “PRIIPs Regulation”) for offering or selling the Notes or otherwise making them available to retail investors in the EEA has been prepared and therefore offering or selling the Notes or otherwise making them available to any retail investor in the EEA may be unlawful under the PRIIPs Regulation.
