Harry Winston Diamond Corporation Reports Record Fourth Quarter Sales and Strong Year-End Results

Mar 22, 2011, 17:00 ET from Harry Winston Diamond Corporation

TORONTO, March 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Harry Winston Diamond Corporation (TSX: HW) (NYSE: HWD) (the "Company") today announced its fourth quarter and year-end results for the period ending January 31, 2011.

Fourth Quarter Highlights:

    -   Consolidated sales increased 61% to $215.4 million from
        $133.7 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year.
    -   For the mining segment, rough diamond sales for the fourth quarter
        were 30% higher at $82.7 million compared to $63.5 million for the
        fourth quarter last year. This increase resulted primarily from a 23%
        increase in the Company's achieved rough diamond prices.
    -   Rough diamond production during the calendar quarter from the Diavik
        Diamond Mine was 1.54 million carats, compared to 1.53 million carats
        for the fourth calendar quarter of last year (on a 100% basis).
    -   Luxury brand segment sales for the fourth quarter increased 89% to
        $132.7 million from $70.2 million for the comparable quarter of the
        prior year.
    -   Consolidated net earnings attributable to shareholders for the fourth
        quarter were $9.9 million or $0.12 per share compared to a
        consolidated net loss attributable to shareholders of $3.4 million or
        $0.04 per share in the fourth quarter of the prior year. Included in
        consolidated net earnings attributable to shareholders for the
        quarter was a net foreign exchange loss of $3.0 million or $0.04 per
        share primarily on future income tax liabilities compared to a net
        foreign exchange loss of $2.0 million or $0.03 per share in the
        comparable quarter of the prior year.

Robert Gannicott, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer stated: "This past year we have seen rapid growth in diamond demand, which has had a positive effect on both segments of our business. New customers in emerging markets, especially Asia, have replaced demand from the traditional markets such as America during the financial crisis. As recovery in America and development in the BRIC economies continues, the outlook for rough diamond prices, led by jewelry sales, is expected to be robust."

He continued, "Our operating earnings improved by $86 million versus the prior year as we swung decisively from loss to profitability on the back of strongly improved revenues."

Annual Results Highlights:

    -   Consolidated sales were $624.0 million for the year ended January
        2011 compared to $412.9 million for the prior year, resulting in
        earnings from operations of $64.5 million, compared to a loss from
        operations of $22.0 million last year.
    -   For the mining segment, rough diamond sales increased 49% to
        $279.2 million from $187.9 million in the prior year. The increase in
        sales resulted from a 62% increase in the Company's achieved rough
        diamond prices while the volume of carats sold during the year
        decreased 8%. The increase in sales resulted in earnings from
        operations for the year of $50.2 million compared to a loss from
        operations of $6.3 million in the prior year.
    -   Rough diamond production for the calendar year 2010 was 6.5 million
        carats compared to 5.5 million carats in the prior calendar year (on
        a 100% basis). The lower production in the prior calendar year was a
        planned response to the softness in the rough diamond market that
        included a six-week summer shut-down.
    -   Luxury brand segment sales increased 53% to $344.8 million from
        $225.0 million in the prior year. The increase in sales resulted in
        earnings from operations for the year of $14.3 million compared to a
        loss from operations of $15.7 million in the prior year.
    -   Harry Winston Diamond Corporation recorded consolidated net earnings
        attributable to shareholders of $21.7 million or $0.27 per share for
        the year, compared to consolidated net loss attributable to
        shareholders of $73.2 million or $0.99 per share in the prior year.
        Included in the consolidated net earnings attributable to
        shareholders for the year was a net foreign exchange loss of
        $14.4 million or $0.18 per share primarily on future income tax
        liabilities compared to net foreign exchange loss of $31.5 million or
        $0.43 per share in the prior year.
    -   The prior year consolidated net loss attributable to shareholders
        also included a non-cash dilution loss of $34.8 million or $0.47 per
        share as a result of the investment by Kinross Gold Corporation in
        Harry Winston Diamond Limited Partnership, which holds the Company's
        40% interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine.

Mr. Gannicott commented on the Company's outlook, "Although the commercial impact of the human tragedy in Japan has yet to be measured, we are thankful that our personnel and retail salons there are all unharmed. Last year Japan was 11% of global diamond jewelry consumer demand and 18% of our own luxury brand sales.

For fiscal 2012 we expect a continued advance in luxury brand revenues and earnings driven by demand. Mining revenues will advance with higher diamond prices and improved ore mix. Mining costs will increase as open pit tonnage is supplemented by underground production, but to a lesser extent than originally expected due to the implementation of lower cost mining methods."

The Company is in the process of updating the mine plan which it expects to share publicly in the near future.

Mr. Gannicott concluded, "We believe our business makes the best use of positioning in both ends of the complex but rewarding diamond business."

Summary Discussion

Harry Winston Diamond Corporation is a diamond enterprise with premium assets in the mining and luxury brand segments of the diamond industry. The Company supplies rough diamonds to the global market from its 40% ownership interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine, located in Canada's Northwest Territories. The Company's luxury brand segment is a premier diamond jeweler and luxury timepiece retailer with salons in key locations including New York, Paris, London, Beijing, Tokyo and Beverly Hills.

The Company's most significant asset is an ownership interest in the Diavik group of mineral claims. The Diavik Joint Venture (the "Joint Venture") is an unincorporated joint arrangement between Diavik Diamond Mines Inc. ("DDMI") (60%) and Harry Winston Diamond Limited Partnership ("HWDLP") (40%) where HWDLP holds an undivided 40% ownership interest in the assets, liabilities and expenses of the Diavik Diamond Mine. DDMI is the operator of the Diavik Diamond Mine. DDMI and HWDLP are headquartered in Yellowknife, Canada. DDMI is a wholly owned subsidiary of Rio Tinto plc of London, England.

On August 25, 2010, Harry Winston Diamond Corporation reacquired from Kinross Gold Corporation ("Kinross") for $191.2 million (including transaction costs) its 9% indirect interest in the Diavik Joint Venture (the "Kinross Buy Back Transaction"), representing Kinross's direct 22.5% interest in HWDLP previously acquired in March 2009. The purchase price for Kinross's 22.5% interest in HWDLP was based on the market value of consideration on the closing date and was satisfied by the payment of $50.0 million in cash, the issuance to Kinross of approximately 7.1 million Harry Winston Diamond Corporation common shares from treasury with a market value of $69.7 million and the issuance to Kinross of a promissory note in the amount of $70.0 million, maturing on August 25, 2011. The note bears interest at a rate of 5% per annum and can be repaid in cash or, subject to certain limitations, treasury common shares issued by the Company. The issuance of such shares is expected to be subject to approval by the Company's shareholders in most circumstances. With this transaction, the Company's ownership interest in the Diavik Joint Venture was increased back to 40%.

Market Commentary

The Diamond Market

Improved world economic conditions positively impacted the price of rough diamonds throughout the fiscal year. The market price for rough diamonds has increased approximately 45% over the prior year. Increasing demand from the Far East and India was bolstered by an improved US market. The demand for rough diamonds is outpacing the increase in mine supply, inevitably leading to shortages in the rough and polished market. This trend is expected to continue and to result in rising rough and polished diamond prices in fiscal 2012.

The Luxury Brand Jewelry Market

Consumer demand for luxury brands continued to strengthen in all markets, especially from China with its expanding economy, and from the Middle East and Russia as a result of high energy prices. In the US, a relatively weak dollar and a strong rebound in the equity markets contributed to growth in that market, particularly in the fourth quarter. The jewelry market in the US experienced a strong holiday season as consumer confidence improved with the gradual recovery of the global economy throughout fiscal 2011.

Consolidated Financial Results

The following is a summary of the Company's consolidated quarterly results for the eight quarters ended January 31, 2011 following the basis of presentation utilized in its Canadian GAAP financial statements:

    (i)   Effective February 1, 2010, the Company early adopted Handbook
          Section 1582, "Business Combinations", Handbook Section 1601,
          "Consolidated Financial Statements", Handbook Section 1602, "Non-
          Controlling Interests", and amendments to Handbook Section 3251,
          "Equity", from the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants
          ("CICA"), which have been applied retrospectively. Under these
          sections, non-controlling interest is reported as a component of
          shareholders' equity. As a result, the prior year amounts for non-
          controlling interest in the consolidated balance sheet have been
          reclassified into shareholders' equity. In addition, non-
          controlling interest of $4.2 million reported in the first two
          quarters of fiscal 2011 as a reduction to earnings was reclassified
          as a direct charge to retained earnings.

    (ii)  Total assets and total long-term liabilities are expressed in
          millions of United States dollars.

    (iii) Depreciation and amortization included in cost of sales and
          selling, general and administrative expenses.

    (iv)  Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization
          ("EBITDA"). See "Supplementary Measure" on page 17.

          The comparability of quarter-over-quarter results is impacted by
          seasonality for both the mining and luxury brand segments. Harry
          Winston Diamond Corporation expects that the quarterly results for
          its mining segment will continue to fluctuate depending on the
          seasonality of production at the Diavik Diamond Mine, the number of
          sales events conducted during the quarter, and the volume, size and
          quality distribution of rough diamonds delivered from the Diavik
          Diamond Mine in each quarter. The quarterly results for the luxury
          brand segment are also seasonal, with generally higher sales during
          the fourth quarter due to the holiday season. See "Segmented
          Analysis" on page 10 for additional information.

Year Ended January 31, 2011 Compared to Year Ended January 31, 2010

CONSOLIDATED NET EARNINGS ATTRIBUTABLE TO SHAREHOLDERS

The Company recorded consolidated net earnings attributable to shareholders of $21.7 million or $0.27 per share for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2011 compared to a consolidated net loss attributable to shareholders of $73.2 million or $0.99 per share in the prior year. Included in the consolidated net earnings attributable to shareholders for the year was a net foreign exchange loss of $14.4 million or $0.18 per share primarily on future income tax liabilities compared to a net foreign exchange loss of $31.5 million or $0.43 per share in the prior year. The prior year consolidated net loss attributable to shareholders also included a non-cash dilution loss of $34.8 million or $0.47 per share as a result of the investment by Kinross Gold Corporation in Harry Winston Diamond Limited Partnership, which holds the Company's 40% interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine.

CONSOLIDATED SALES

The Company recorded sales for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2011 of $624.0 million compared to sales of $412.9 million for the prior year. On a segment basis, rough diamond sales accounted for $279.2 million of these sales compared to $187.9 million for the prior year. The Company completed nine rough diamond sales during the fiscal year, one of which was a tender sale, compared to eight rough diamond sales in the prior year. Luxury brand segment sales were $344.8 million compared to $225.0 million for the prior year. See "Segmented Analysis" on page 10 for additional information.

CONSOLIDATED COST OF SALES AND GROSS MARGIN

The Company recorded cost of sales of $391.6 million for a gross margin of 37.2% during the fiscal year compared to $291.7 million and a gross margin of 29.3% during the prior year. The Company's cost of sales includes costs associated with mining, rough diamond sorting and luxury brand sales activities. See "Segmented Analysis" on page 10 for additional information.

CONSOLIDATED SELLING, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES

The principal components of selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses include expenses for salaries and benefits, advertising, professional fees, rent and building related costs. The Company incurred SG&A expenses of $168.0 million for the fiscal year compared to $143.2 million in the prior year.

Included in SG&A expenses for the year are $19.8 million for the mining segment compared to $19.5 million for the prior year, and $148.2 million for the luxury brand segment compared to $123.6 million for the prior year. For the luxury brand segment, the increase was due primarily to higher advertising, marketing and selling expenses and higher variable compensation expenses resulting from higher sales. See "Segmented Analysis" on page 10 for additional information.

CONSOLIDATED INCOME TAXES

The Company recorded a tax expense of $12.4 million during the twelve months ended January 31, 2011, compared to a tax recovery of $18.8 million in the comparable period of the prior year. The Company's effective income tax rate for the year, excluding the luxury brand segment, is 30%, which is based on a statutory income tax rate of 29% adjusted for various items including Northwest Territories mining royalty, impact of foreign exchange, and earnings subject to tax different than the statutory rate.

The Company's functional and reporting currency is US dollars; however, the calculation of income tax expense is based on income in the currency of the country of origin. As such, the Company is continually subject to foreign exchange fluctuations, particularly as the Canadian dollar moves against the US dollar. During the twelve months ended January 31, 2011, the Company recorded an unrealized foreign exchange loss of $14.8 million on the revaluation of the Canadian denominated future income tax liability, as compared to an unrealized foreign exchange loss of $24.4 million recorded in the comparable period of the prior year. The unrealized foreign exchange loss is not deductible for Canadian income tax purposes.

The rate of income tax payable by Harry Winston Inc. varies by jurisdiction. Net operating losses are available in certain jurisdictions to offset future income taxes payable in such jurisdictions. The net operating losses are scheduled to expire through 2031.

The Company has provided a table below summarizing the movement from the statutory to the effective income tax rate as a percentage of earnings before taxes:

CONSOLIDATED FOREIGN EXCHANGE

A net foreign exchange loss of $14.4 million was recognized during the fiscal year compared to a net foreign exchange loss of $31.5 million in the prior year. The current year loss relates principally to the revaluation of the Company's Canadian dollar denominated long-term future income tax liability as a result of the strengthening of the Canadian dollar against the US dollar at January 31, 2011. The Company's ongoing currency exposure relates primarily to expenses and obligations incurred in Canadian dollars, as well as the revaluation of certain Canadian monetary balance sheet amounts. The Company does not currently have any significant foreign exchange derivative instruments outstanding.

The Company's cost of sales includes costs associated with mining, rough diamond sorting and luxury brand sales activities. See "Segmented Analysis" on page 10 for additional information.

CONSOLIDATED SELLING, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES

The principal components of SG&A expenses include expenses for salaries and benefits, advertising, professional fees, rent and building related costs. The Company incurred SG&A expenses of $52.7 million for the fourth quarter compared to $40.5 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year.

Included in SG&A expenses for the fourth quarter are $4.8 million for the mining segment compared to $4.9 million for the comparable quarter of the prior year, and $47.9 million for the luxury brand segment compared to $35.6 million for the comparable quarter of the prior year. For the luxury brand segment, the increase was due primarily to higher advertising, marketing and selling expenses and higher variable compensation expenses resulting from higher sales. See "Segmented Analysis" on page 10 for additional information.

CONSOLIDATED INCOME TAXES

The Company recorded a tax expense of $4.3 million during the fourth quarter, compared to a tax recovery of $5.8 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year. The Company's effective income tax rate for the quarter, excluding the luxury brand segment, is 19%, which is based on a statutory income tax rate of 29% adjusted for various items including Northwest Territories mining royalty, impact of foreign exchange, and earnings subject to tax different than the statutory rate.

The Company's functional and reporting currency is US dollars; however, the calculation of income tax expense is based on income in the currency of the country of origin. As such, the Company is continually subject to foreign exchange fluctuations, particularly as the Canadian dollar moves against the US dollar. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011, the Canadian dollar strengthened against the US dollar. As a result, the Company recorded a foreign exchange loss of $4.4 million on the revaluation of the Company's Canadian dollar denominated future income tax liability. This compares to a foreign exchange loss of $2.2 million in the comparable quarter of the previous year. The unrealized foreign exchange loss is not deductible for Canadian income tax purposes.

The rate of income tax payable by Harry Winston Inc. varies by jurisdiction. Net operating losses are available in certain jurisdictions to offset future income taxes payable in such jurisdictions. The net operating losses are scheduled to expire through 2031.

Year Ended January 31, 2011 Compared to Year Ended January 31, 2010

MINING SALES

During the year the Company sold 2.6 million carats for a total of $279.2 million for an average price per carat of $106 compared to 2.9 million carats for a total of $187.9 million for an average price per carat of $65 in the prior year. Sales in the first quarter of the prior year included 0.4 million carats carried in inventory at January 31, 2009 for revenue of $13.0 million. Excluding those carats sold, the increase in the Company's achieved rough diamond prices was 48%. The Company held nine rough diamond sales during the fiscal year, one of which was a tender, compared to eight in the prior year.

MINING COST OF SALES AND GROSS MARGIN

For the fiscal year ended January 31, 2011, cost of sales was $209.3 million, resulting in a gross margin of 25.0% compared to a cost of sales of $174.7 million and a gross margin of 7.0% in the prior year. The gross margin rate in the prior year was significantly impacted by lower carat production spread across a largely fixed operating cost platform. Also included in cost of sales for the prior year was $9.8 million related to goods carried in inventory at January 31, 2009, which were sold subsequent to year end.

A substantial portion of cost of sales is mining operating costs, which are incurred at the Diavik Diamond Mine. Cost of sales also includes sorting costs, which consist of the Company's cost of handling and sorting product in preparation for sales to third parties, and amortization and depreciation, the majority of which is recorded using the unit-of-production method over estimated proven and probable reserves.

MINING SELLING, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES

SG&A expenses for the mining segment increased by $0.2 million from the prior year.

Three Months Ended January 31, 2011 Compared to Three Months Ended January 31, 2010

MINING SALES

During the quarter the Company sold 0.8 million carats for a total of $82.7 million for an average price per carat of $110 compared to 0.7 million carats for a total of $63.5 million for an average price per carat of $89 in the comparable quarter of the prior year. The increase in the Company's achieved rough diamond prices was in line with the market. The Company held two rough diamond sales in the fourth quarter compared to three in the comparable quarter of the prior year.

The Company expects that results for its mining segment will continue to fluctuate depending on the seasonality of production at the Diavik Diamond Mine, the number of sales events conducted at each sales location during the quarter, rough diamond prices and the volume, size and quality distribution of rough diamonds delivered from the Diavik Diamond Mine in each quarter.

MINING COST OF SALES AND GROSS MARGIN

The Company's fourth quarter cost of sales was $62.7 million resulting in a gross margin of 24.2% compared to a cost of sales of $57.0 million and a gross margin of 10.2% in the comparable quarter of the prior year. The increase in gross margin resulted primarily from an increase in achieved rough diamond prices. The mining gross margin is anticipated to fluctuate between quarters due to variations in the specific mix of product sold during each quarter and rough diamond prices.

A substantial portion of cost of sales is mining operating costs, which are incurred at the Diavik Diamond Mine. Cost of sales also includes sorting costs, which consist of the Company's cost of handling and sorting product in preparation for sales to third parties, and amortization and depreciation, the majority of which is recorded using the unit-of-production method over estimated proven and probable reserves.

MINING SELLING, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES

SG&A expenses for the mining segment decreased by $0.1 million from the comparable quarter of the prior year.

Mining Segment Operational Update

Annual production at the Diavik Diamond Mine was 6.5 million carats, compared to a forecast of 6.9 million carats. The lower production resulted from two factors. First, a reduction in ore processed to approximately 2.1 million tonnes. Certain ore in the A-418 kimberlite pipe contains mud-rich material, which reduced processing capacity. Rio Tinto plc, the operator of the Diavik Diamond Mine, has made modifications to the processing flow to remediate this issue. Second, a lower grade resulted from a shift from underground ore mined from the A-154 South pipe to the lower-grade A-154 North underground and A-418 open pit while a revised, more efficient underground mining method is reviewed. Production consisted of 2.3 million carats produced from 0.54 million tonnes of ore from the A-154 South kimberlite pipe, 0.4 million carats produced from 0.18 million tonnes of ore from the A-154 North kimberlite pipe and 3.8 million carats produced from 1.35 million tonnes of ore from the A-418 kimberlite pipe. Average grade decreased to 3.2 carats per tonne for the year from 4.1 carats per tonne in the prior year.

Ore production for the fourth calendar quarter consisted of 0.4 million carats produced from 0.12 million tonnes of ore from the A-154 South kimberlite pipe, 0.1 million carats produced from 0.05 million tonnes of ore from the A-154 North kimberlite pipe and 1.0 million carats produced from 0.39 million tonnes of ore from the A-418 kimberlite pipe. Average grade decreased to 2.8 carats per tonne in the fourth calendar quarter from 4.2 carats per tonne in the comparable quarter of the prior year. The decrease in average grade was driven primarily by an increase in the proportion of ore sourced from the mud-rich lower grade A-418 kimberlite pipe.

Mining Segment Outlook

PRODUCTION

A mine plan and budget for calendar 2011 has been approved by Rio Tinto plc, the operator of the Diavik Diamond Mine, and the Company. The plan for calendar 2011 foresees Diavik Diamond Mine production of approximately 6.9 million carats from the mining of 2.0 million tonnes of ore and processing of 2.2 million tonnes of ore, with the increment delivered from stockpile. Open pit mining of approximately 1.4 million tonnes is expected to be exclusively from A-418, almost all of which is expected to be sourced from the mud-rich ore type. Underground mining of approximately 0.6 million tonnes is expected to be primarily sourced equally from the A-154 South and A-154 North kimberlite pipes. Should the more efficient mining method be approved for A-154 South during the year, the production plan may be augmented to include more ore from this pipe.

Looking beyond calendar 2011, the objective is to fully utilize processing capacity with a combination of underground and open pit production. New mining techniques, with the potential to reduce unit costs and increase mining velocity, are under consideration for the underground ore reserves. Current plans see A-21 development beginning in 2013, with production in 2015. In addition, exploration work has identified extensions at depth to the A-418 and A-154 North kimberlite pipes. The inclusion of these extensions into ore reserves will be largely dependent upon the costs of new underground mining techniques currently under review.

PRICING

The rough diamond market improved substantially in fiscal 2011 and the Company anticipates that market conditions will remain favourable through fiscal 2012. Strong demand growth from emerging markets, notably China, and from recovering developed markets is expected to lead to further increases in polished prices during the year, which will result in sustained increases in rough diamond prices. Based on HWDC's current rough diamond sales prices as of March 2011 and the current diamond recovery profile of the Diavik processing plant, the Company has modeled the approximate rough diamond price per carat for each of the Diavik ore types as follows:

                                                     Average Price per Carat
    Ore Type                                                  (in US dollars)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    A-154 South                                                     $    140
    A-154 North                                                          180
    A-418 A Type Ore                                                     130
    A-418 B Type Ore                                                      90
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

COST OF SALES

The Company expects cost of sales in fiscal 2012 to be approximately $265 million. Included in this amount is depreciation and amortization of approximately $80 million at an assumed average Canadian/US dollar exchange rate of $1.00. This increase in cost of sales is expected to result primarily from an increase in the proportion of underground ore mined.

CAPITAL EXPENDITURES

During fiscal 2011 and the fourth quarter, HWDLP's 40% share of capital expenditures at the Diavik Diamond Mine was approximately $40.2 million and $10.5 million, respectively. During fiscal 2012, HWDLP's 40% share of the planned capital expenditures at the Diavik Diamond Mine is expected to be approximately $62 million at an assumed average Canadian/US dollar exchange rate of $1.00.

EXPLORATION

The Company has additionally staked 226,000 hectares of mineral claims on the prospective geological trend to the southwest of the existing mine site and is making plans for the exploration of this land over the coming years.

Luxury Brand

The luxury brand segment includes sales from Harry Winston salons, which are located in prime markets around the world, including eight salons in the United States: New York, Beverly Hills, Bal Harbour, Honolulu, Las Vegas, Dallas, Chicago and Costa Mesa; five salons in Japan: Ginza, Roppongi Hills, Osaka, Omotesando and Nagoya; two salons in Europe: Paris and London; and four salons in Asia outside of Japan: Beijing, Taipei, Hong Kong and Singapore.

SG&A expenses increased to $47.9 million from $35.6 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year. The increase was due primarily to higher advertising, marketing and selling expenses and higher variable compensation expenses resulting from higher sales. In addition, SG&A expenses for the fourth quarter included $2.1 million of non-recurring expenses related to the relocation of the Las Vegas salon and repairs to the façade of the New York salon. SG&A expenses include depreciation and amortization expense of $3.9 million compared to $3.3 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year.

Luxury Brand Segment Operational Update

For the fiscal year, the luxury brand segment recorded sales of $344.8 million, an increase of 53% over the prior year. The luxury brand segment experienced strong sales increases across all geographic regions. The US market generated sales of $111.3 million, an increase of 53% over the prior year. Significant increases in tourism as a result of the relatively weak US dollar and the resurgent equities market translated into strong sales growth in the US. Sales in Japan were $61.7 million, up 24% over the prior year. Asia outside of Japan had sales of $73.4 million, which were 169% higher than the prior year. Economic growth continues to be very strong in China, translating into increasing consumer demand for luxury goods. In Europe, sales of $98.4 million were 31% higher than the prior year.

During the fourth quarter, the luxury brand segment recorded sales of $132.7 million, an 89% increase in sales over the comparable quarter of the prior year. In November, the Company celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Hope Diamond donation by Harry Winston to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC, with the Court of Jewels, a major exhibition of rare gemstones and jewelry in the New York flagship salon. The event resulted in strong press coverage for the brand. In addition, the Company launched a new advertising campaign to further support the brand. In December, the Las Vegas salon was relocated to a new concept salon at the CityCenter development.

Harry Winston Inc. currently operates a network of 19 luxury brand salons worldwide.

Luxury Brand Segment Outlook

For fiscal 2012, the luxury brand segment expects the strong growth in demand for luxury jewelry and watch products experienced during fiscal 2011 to continue. Current world-wide economic conditions are favourable for the luxury brand market although the degree to which the recent disaster in Japan and political upheavals in the Middle East can be expected to negatively impact this environment remain to be seen. The Company's focus during the next year will include opening three new salons, two of which will be located in Shanghai, China, increased investment in advertising, and the introduction of new jewelry collections and watch products. Harry Winston Inc. is well positioned to benefit from the continued improvement in the global economy. The strength of the Harry Winston brand, global distribution network of salons in prime locations and quality product offering has positioned the Company to achieve continued increases in sales and operating profit.

Management's long-term financial objectives over the next five years (to fiscal 2016) include compound annual revenue growth in the mid teens, a gross margin target in the low 50% range, and an operating profit margin target in the low to mid teens.

A key component of the luxury brand's growth strategy is the expansion of its current salon network and wholesale distribution channel. The growth target is to expand to approximately 35 directly operated salons, 20 partner salons, and 300 wholesale doors by fiscal 2016.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Working Capital

As at January 31, 2011, the Company had unrestricted cash and cash equivalents of $108.7 million compared to $63.0 million at January 31, 2010. The Company had cash on hand and balances with banks of $108.0 million and short-term investments of $0.7 million at January 31, 2011. During the year ended January 31, 2011, the Company generated $73.7 million in cash from operations compared to $44.2 million in the prior year.

Working capital increased to $337.1 million at January 31, 2011 from $284.5 million at January 31, 2010. During the fiscal year, the Company decreased accounts receivable by $1.0 million, increased prepaid expenses and other current assets by $2.0 million, increased inventory by $87.1 million, increased accounts payable and accrued liabilities by $54.6 million, and decreased income taxes payable by $41.3 million.

The Company's liquidity requirements fluctuate from quarter to quarter depending on, among other factors, the seasonality of production at the Diavik Diamond Mine, seasonality of mine operating expenses, capital expenditure programs, the number of rough diamond sales events conducted during the quarter and the volume, size and quality distribution of rough diamonds delivered from the Diavik Diamond Mine in each quarter, along with the seasonality of sales and salon expansion in the luxury brand segment. The Company's principal working capital needs include investments in inventory, prepaid expenses and other current assets, and accounts payable and income taxes payable.

The Company assesses liquidity and capital resources on a consolidated basis. The Company's requirements are for cash operating expenses, working capital, contractual debt requirements and capital expenditures. The Company believes that it will generate sufficient liquidity to meet its anticipated requirements for the next twelve months.

Financing Activities

On June 24, 2010, the Company announced that it had completed a mining segment senior secured revolving credit facility with Standard Chartered Bank for $100.0 million. On February 28, 2011, the Company increased the facility by $25.0 million to $125.0 million. The facility has an initial maturity date of June 24, 2013 with two one-year extensions at the Company's option. There are no scheduled repayments required before maturity. The facility is available to the Company and Harry Winston Diamond Mines Ltd. for general corporate purposes. Borrowings bear an interest margin of 3.5%. The Company is required to comply with financial covenants at the mining segment level customary for a financing of this nature, with change in control provisions at the Company and Diavik Diamond Mines level. At January 31, 2011, the Company had $50.0 million outstanding on this senior secured revolving credit facility, which was used as a component of the financing for the Kinross Buy Back Transaction.

As at January 31, 2011, the Company's luxury brand subsidiary, Harry Winston Inc., had $165.0 million outstanding on its $250.0 million secured five-year revolving credit facility maturing on March 31, 2013, which is used to fund salon inventory and capital expenditure requirements. This compares to $140.0 million outstanding at January 31, 2010.

Also included in long-term debt of the Company's luxury brands operations is a 25-year loan agreement for CHF 17.5 million ($18.4 million) used to finance the construction of the Company's watch factory in Geneva, Switzerland. At January 31, 2011, $16.7 million was outstanding compared to $15.5 million at January 31, 2010. The bank has a secured interest in the factory building.

Harry Winston Japan, K.K. maintains secured and unsecured credit agreements with three banks amounting to (Yen)1,880 million ($22.9 million). At January 31, 2011, $22.9 million had been drawn against these facilities and classified as bank advances compared to $22.5 million at January 31, 2010.

At January 31, 2011 and January 31, 2010, no amounts were outstanding under the Company's revolving financing facility relating to its Belgian subsidiary, Harry Winston Diamond International N.V., or its Indian subsidiary, Harry Winston Diamond (India) Private Limited.

Investing Activities

On August 25, 2010, Harry Winston Diamond Corporation reacquired from Kinross for $191.2 million (including transaction costs) its 9% indirect interest in the Diavik Joint Venture, representing Kinross's direct 22.5% interest in HWDLP previously acquired in March 2009. The purchase price for Kinross's 22.5% interest in HWDLP was based on the market value of consideration on the closing date and was satisfied by the payment of $50.0 million in cash, the issuance to Kinross of approximately 7.1 million Harry Winston Diamond Corporation common shares from treasury with a market value of $69.7 million, and the issuance to Kinross of a promissory note in the amount of $70.0 million, maturing on August 25, 2011. The note bears interest at a rate of 5% per annum and can be repaid in cash or, subject to certain limitations, treasury common shares issued by the Company. The issuance of such shares is expected to be subject to approval by the Company's shareholders in most circumstances. With this transaction, the Company's ownership interest in the Diavik Joint Venture was increased back to 40%.

During the fiscal year, the Company purchased capital assets of $49.1 million, of which $42.3 million were purchased for the mining segment and $6.8 million for the luxury brand segment.

Contractual Obligations

The Company has contractual payment obligations with respect to long-term debt and, through its participation in the Joint Venture, future site restoration costs at the Diavik Diamond Mine level. Additionally, at the Joint Venture level, contractual obligations exist with respect to operating purchase obligations, as administered by DDMI, the operator of the mine. In order to maintain its 40% ownership interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine, HWDLP is obligated to fund 40% of the Joint Venture's total expenditures on a monthly basis. HWDLP's current projected share of the planned capital expenditures at the Diavik Diamond Mine, which are not reflected in the table below, including capital expenditures for the calendar years 2011 to 2015, is approximately $170 million assuming a Canadian/US average exchange rate of $1.00 for the five years. The most significant contractual obligations for the ensuing five-year period can be summarized as follows:

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (a) Long-term debt presented in the foregoing table includes current and
        long-term portions. The mining segment maintains a senior secured
        revolving credit facility with Standard Chartered Bank for
        $100.0 million. On February 28, 2011, the Company increased the
        facility by $25.0 million to $125.0 million. The facility has an
        initial maturity date of June 24, 2013 with two one-year extensions
        at the Company's option. There are no scheduled repayments required
        before maturity. At January 31, 2011, $50.0 million was outstanding.

        On August 25, 2010, the Company issued a promissory note in the
        amount of $70.0 million, maturing on August 25, 2011, as part of the
        consideration for Kinross Buy Back Transaction. The note bears
        interest at a rate of 5% per annum and can be repaid in cash or,
        subject to certain limitations, treasury common shares issued by the
        Company. The issuance of such shares is expected to be subject to
        approval by the Company's shareholders in most circumstances.

        Harry Winston Inc. maintains a credit agreement with a syndicate of
        banks for a $250.0 million five-year revolving credit facility. There
        are no scheduled repayments required before maturity. At January 31,
        2011, $165.0 million had been drawn against this secured credit
        facility, which expires on March 31, 2013.

        Also included in long-term debt of Harry Winston Inc. is a 25-year
        loan agreement for CHF 17.5 million ($18.4 million) used to finance
        the construction of the Company's watch factory in Geneva,
        Switzerland. The loan agreement is comprised of a CHF 3.5 million
        ($3.7 million) loan and a CHF 14.0 million ($14.7 million) loan. The
        CHF 3.5 million loan bears interest at a rate of 3.15% and matures on
        April 22, 2013. The CHF 14.0 million loan bears interest at a rate of
        3.55% and matures on January 31, 2033. At January 31, 2011,
        $16.7 million was outstanding on the loan agreement compared to
        $15.5 million at January 31, 2010. The bank has a secured interest in
        the factory building.

        The Company's first mortgage on real property has scheduled principal
        payments of approximately $0.2 million quarterly, and may be prepaid
        at any time. On January 31, 2011, $7.0 million was outstanding on the
        mortgage payable.

    (b) Interest on long-term debt is calculated at various fixed and
        floating rates. Projected interest payments on the current debt
        outstanding were based on interest rates in effect at January 31,
        2011, and have been included under long-term debt in the table above.
        Interest payments for the next twelve months are approximated to be
        $9.1 million.

    (c) The Joint Venture, under environmental and other agreements, must
        provide funding for the Environmental Monitoring Advisory Board.
        These agreements also state that the Joint Venture must provide
        security deposits for the performance by the Joint Venture of its
        reclamation and abandonment obligations under all environmental laws
        and regulations. The operator of the Joint Venture has fulfilled such
        obligations for the security deposits by posting letters of credit of
        which HWDLP's share as at January 31, 2011 was $80.4 million based on
        its 40% ownership interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine. There can be
        no assurance that the operator will continue its practice of posting
        letters of credit in fulfillment of this obligation, in which event
        HWDLP would be required to post its proportionate share of such
        security directly, which would result in additional constraints on
        liquidity. The requirement to post security for the reclamation and
        abandonment obligations may be reduced to the extent of amounts spent
        by the Joint Venture on those activities. The Joint Venture has also
        signed participation agreements with various native groups. These
        agreements are expected to contribute to the social, economic and
        cultural well-being of area Aboriginal bands. The actual cash outlay
        for the Joint Venture's obligations under these agreements is not
        anticipated to occur until later in the life of the Diavik Diamond
        Mine.

    (d) Operating lease obligations represent future minimum annual rentals
        under non-cancellable operating leases for Harry Winston Inc. salons
        and office space, and long-term leases for property, land, office
        premises and a fuel tank farm for the Diavik Diamond Mine.

    (e) Capital lease obligations represent future minimum annual rentals
        under non-cancellable capital leases for Harry Winston Inc. luxury
        brand exhibit space.

Supplementary Measure

In addition to discussing earnings measures in accordance with Canadian GAAP, the MD&A provides the following supplementary measure, which is also used by management to monitor and evaluate the performance of the Company and its business segments.

The term EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) does not have a standardized meaning according to Canadian GAAP. The Company defines EBITDA as sales minus cost of sales and selling, general and administrative expenses, meaning it represents earnings from operations before depreciation and amortization.

EBITDA is a measure commonly reported and widely used by investors and analysts as an indicator of the Company's operating performance and ability to incur and service debt and as a valuation metric. EBITDA margin is defined as the ratio obtained by dividing EBITDA by sales.

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

The Company has designed a system of disclosure controls and procedures to provide reasonable assurance that material information relating to Harry Winston Diamond Corporation, including its consolidated subsidiaries, is made known to the management of the Company by others within those entities, particularly during the period in which the Company's annual filings are being prepared. In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, the management of the Company recognized that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives. The management of Harry Winston Diamond Corporation was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures. The result of the inherent limitations in all control systems means no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, have been detected.

The management of Harry Winston Diamond Corporation has evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of its disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by the Annual Report. Based on that evaluation, management has concluded that these disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Canada by Multilateral Instrument 52-109, Certification of Disclosure in Issuers' Annual and Interim Filings, and in the United States by Rule 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act"), are effective as of January 31, 2011, to ensure that information required to be disclosed in reports that the Company will file or submit under Canadian securities legislation and the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in those rules and forms.

Internal Control over Financial Reporting

The certifying officers of Harry Winston Diamond Corporation have designed a system of internal control over financial reporting to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements in accordance with Canadian GAAP and the requirements of the Securities and Exchange Commission in the United States, as applicable. Management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting for the Company, including its consolidated subsidiaries.

Management has evaluated the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting using the framework and criteria established in the Internal Control - Integrated Framework, issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. Based on this evaluation, management has concluded that internal control over financial reporting was effective as of January 31, 2011.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011, there were no changes in the Company's internal control over financial reporting that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company's internal control over financial reporting.

Critical Accounting Estimates

Management is often required to make judgments, assumptions and estimates in the application of Canadian GAAP that have a significant impact on the financial results of the Company. Certain policies are more significant than others and are, therefore, considered critical accounting policies. Accounting policies are considered critical if they rely on a substantial amount of judgment (use of estimates) in their application, or if they result from a choice between accounting alternatives and that choice has a material impact on the Company's reported results or financial position. The following discussion outlines the accounting policies and practices that are critical to determining Harry Winston Diamond Corporation's financial results.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions 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 earnings, revenues and expenses during the reporting year. Significant areas requiring the use of management estimates relate to the determination of impairment of capital assets, intangible assets, goodwill and deferred mineral property costs, estimation of future site restoration costs and future income taxes. Financial results as determined by actual events could differ from those estimated.

The most significant estimates relate to the valuation of deferred mineral property costs and future site restoration costs. Management makes significant estimates related to the measurement of reclamation obligations and the timing of the related cash flows and future income tax liabilities. Such timing and measurement uncertainty could have a material effect on the reported results of operations and the financial position of the Company.

Actual results could differ materially from those estimates in the near term.

Deferred Mineral Property Costs and Mineral Reserves

Harry Winston Diamond Corporation capitalizes all direct development and pre-production costs relating to mineral properties and amortizes such costs on a unit-of-production basis upon commencement of commercial production relating to the underlying property. Deferred mineral property costs are amortized based on estimated proven and probable reserves at the property.

On an ongoing basis, the Company evaluates deferred costs relating to each property to ensure that the estimated recoverable amount exceeds the carrying value. Based on the Diavik Diamond Mine's latest projected open pit and underground life from the mine plan and diamond prices from the Diavik Project feasibility study, there is no requirement to write down deferred mineral property costs.

The estimation of reserves is a subjective process. Forecasts are based on engineering data, projected future rates of production and the timing of future expenditures, all of which are subject to numerous uncertainties and various interpretations. The Company expects that its estimates of reserves will change to reflect updated information. Reserve estimates can be revised upward or downward based on the results of future drilling, testing or production levels, and diamond prices. Changes in reserve estimates can impact the evaluation of net recoverable deferred costs.

Future Site Restoration Costs

The Company has obligations for future site restoration costs. The Company records the fair value of an asset retirement obligation as a liability in the period in which it incurs a legal obligation associated with the retirement of tangible long-lived assets that result from the acquisition, construction, development and/or normal use of the assets. The fair value of the liability is added to the carrying amount of the associated asset and this additional carrying amount is depreciated over the life of the asset. Subsequent to the initial measurement of the asset retirement obligation, the obligation is adjusted at the end of each period to reflect the passage of time and changes in the estimated future cash flows underlying the obligation. If the obligation is settled for other than the carrying amount of the liability, the Company will recognize a gain or loss on settlement. As at January 31, 2011, estimates of all legal obligations at the Joint Venture level have been included in the consolidated financial statements of the Company. Processes to track and monitor these obligations are carried out at the Joint Venture level.

Intangible Assets

Certain of the Company's intangible assets are recorded at fair value upon acquisition and have an indefinite useful life. The Company assesses impairment of such intangible assets by determining whether the carrying value exceeds the fair value. If the fair value is determined to be less than the net book value, the excess of the net book value over the fair value is charged to earnings in the year in which such impairment is determined by management. These approaches involve significant management judgment and, as a result, are subject to change.

Risks and Uncertainties

Harry Winston Diamond Corporation is subject to a number of risks and uncertainties as a result of its operations. In addition to the other information contained in this MD&A and the Company's other publicly filed disclosure documents, readers should give careful consideration to the following risks, each of which could have a material adverse effect on the Company's business prospects or financial condition.

Nature of Mining

The operation of the Diavik Diamond Mine is subject to risks inherent in the mining industry, including variations in grade and other geological differences, unexpected problems associated with required water retention dikes, water quality, surface and underground conditions, processing problems, equipment performance, accidents, labour disputes, risks relating to the physical security of the diamonds, force majeure risks and natural disasters. Particularly with underground mining operations, inherent risks include variations in rock structure and strength as it impacts on mining method selection and performance, de-watering and water handling requirements, achieving the required paste backfill strengths, and unexpected local ground conditions. Hazards, such as unusual or unexpected rock formations, rock bursts, pressures, collapses, flooding or other conditions, may be encountered during mining. Such risks could result in personal injury or fatality; damage to or destruction of mining properties, processing facilities or equipment; environmental damage; delays, suspensions or permanent reductions in mining production; monetary losses; and possible legal liability.

The Diavik Diamond Mine, because of its remote northern location and access only by winter road or by air, is subject to special climate and transportation risks. These risks include the inability to operate or to operate efficiently during periods of extreme cold, the unavailability of materials and equipment, and increased transportation costs due to the late opening and/or early closure of the winter road. Such factors can add to the cost of mine development, production and operation and/or impair production and mining activities, thereby affecting the Company's profitability.

Nature of Joint Arrangement with DDMI

HWDLP holds an undivided 40% interest in the assets, liabilities and expenses of the Diavik Diamond Mine and the Diavik group of mineral claims. The Diavik Diamond Mine and the exploration and development of the Diavik group of mineral claims is a joint arrangement between DDMI (60%) and HWDLP (40%), and is subject to the risks normally associated with the conduct of joint ventures and similar joint arrangements. These risks include the inability to exert influence over strategic decisions made in respect of the Diavik Diamond Mine and the Diavik group of mineral claims. By virtue of DDMI's 60% interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine, it has a controlling vote in virtually all Joint Venture management decisions respecting the development and operation of the Diavik Diamond Mine and the development of the Diavik group of mineral claims. Accordingly, DDMI is able to determine the timing and scope of future project capital expenditures, and therefore is able to impose capital expenditure requirements on HWDLP that the Company may not have sufficient cash to meet. A failure to meet capital expenditure requirements imposed by DDMI could result in HWDLP's interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine and the Diavik group of mineral claims being diluted.

Diamond Prices and Demand for Diamonds

The profitability of the Company is dependent upon production from the Diavik Diamond Mine and on the results of the operations of its luxury brand operations. Each, in turn, is dependent in significant part upon the worldwide demand for and price of diamonds. Diamond prices fluctuate and are affected by numerous factors beyond the control of the Company, including worldwide economic trends, particularly in the US, Japan, China and India, worldwide levels of diamond discovery and production, and the level of demand for, and discretionary spending on, luxury goods such as diamonds and jewelry. Low or negative growth in the worldwide economy, renewed or additional credit market disruptions or the occurrence of further terrorist attacks or similar activities creating disruptions in economic growth could result in decreased demand for luxury goods such as diamonds and jewelry, thereby negatively affecting the price of diamonds and jewelry. Similarly, a substantial increase in the worldwide level of diamond production or in diamonds available for sale through recommencement of suspended mining activity or the release of stocks held back during recent periods of low demand could also negatively affect the price of diamonds. In each case, such developments could have a material adverse effect on the Company's results of operations.

Cash Flow and Liquidity

The Company's liquidity requirements fluctuate from quarter to quarter and year to year depending on, among other factors, the seasonality of production at the Diavik Diamond Mine, seasonality of mine operating expenses, capital expenditure programs, the number of rough diamond sales events conducted during the quarter and the volume, size and quality distribution of rough diamonds delivered from the Diavik Diamond Mine in each quarter, along with the seasonality of sales and salon refurbishment and expansion in the luxury brand segment. The Company's principal working capital needs include investments in inventory, prepaid expenses and other current assets, and accounts payable and income taxes payable. On August 25, 2010, the Company completed the Kinross Buy Back Transaction, reacquiring the 22.5% interest in HWDLP that had been previously acquired by Kinross in March 2009. Pursuant to this agreement, Kinross received $50.0 million in cash, a promissory note (the "Kinross Note") in the amount of $70.0 million, plus the issuance of approximately 7.1 million treasury common shares of the Company. The promissory note bears interest at a rate of 5% per annum with a maturity date of August 25, 2011 and can be paid in cash or, subject to certain limitations, in treasury common shares issued by the Company to Kinross. The issuance of such shares is expected to be subject to approval by the Company's shareholders in most circumstances. The Kinross Note is a significant short-term financial obligation. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to meet each or all of its liquidity requirements. A failure by the Company to meet its liquidity requirements could result in the Company failing to meet its planned development objectives, or in the Company being in default of a contractual obligation, each of which could have a material adverse effect on the Company's business prospects or financial condition.

Economic Environment

The Company's financial results are tied to the global economic conditions and their impact on levels of consumer confidence and consumer spending. The global markets have experienced the impact of a significant US and international economic downturn since the fall of 2008. This has restricted the Company's growth opportunities both domestically and internationally, and a return to a recession or weak recovery, due to recent disruptions in financial markets in the European Union or otherwise and the recent disaster in Japan and political upheavals in the Middle East, could cause the Company to experience further revenue declines across both of its business segments due to deteriorated consumer confidence and spending, and a decrease in the availability of credit, which could have a material adverse effect on the Company's business prospects or financial condition. The Company monitors economic developments in the markets in which it operates and uses this information in its continuous strategic and operational planning in an effort to adjust its business in response to changing economic conditions.

Currency Risk

Currency fluctuations may affect the Company's financial performance. Diamonds are sold throughout the world based principally on the US dollar price, and although the Company reports its financial results in US dollars, a majority of the costs and expenses of the Diavik Diamond Mine are incurred in Canadian dollars. Further, the Company has a significant future income tax liability that has been incurred and will be payable in Canadian dollars. The Company's currency exposure relates primarily to expenses and obligations incurred by it in Canadian dollars and, secondarily, to revenues of Harry Winston Inc. in currencies other than the US dollar. The appreciation of the Canadian dollar against the US dollar, and the depreciation of such other currencies, such as the Euro, which has shown significant recent volatility, against the US dollar, therefore, will increase the expenses of the Diavik Diamond Mine and the amount of the Company's Canadian dollar liabilities relative to the revenue the Company will receive from diamond sales, and will decrease the US dollar revenues received by Harry Winston Inc. From time to time, the Company may use a limited number of derivative financial instruments to manage its foreign currency exposure.

Licences and Permits

The operation of the Diavik Diamond Mine and exploration on the Diavik property requires licences and permits from the Canadian government. The Diavik Diamond Mine Type "A" Water Licence was renewed by the regional Wek'eezhii Land and Water Board to October 31, 2015. While the Company anticipates that DDMI, the operator of the Diavik Diamond Mine, will be able to renew this licence and other necessary permits in the future, there can be no guarantee that DDMI will be able to do so or obtain or maintain all other necessary licences and permits that may be required to maintain the operation of the Diavik Diamond Mine or to further explore and develop the Diavik property.

Regulatory and Environmental Risks

The operation of the Diavik Diamond Mine, exploration activities at the Diavik Project and the manufacturing of jewelry and watches are subject to various laws and regulations governing the protection of the environment, exploration, development, production, taxes, labour standards, occupational health, waste disposal, mine safety, manufacturing safety and other matters. New laws and regulations, amendments to existing laws and regulations, or more stringent implementation or changes in enforcement policies under existing laws and regulations could have a material adverse effect on the Company by increasing costs and/or causing a reduction in levels of production from the Diavik Diamond Mine and in the manufacture of jewelry and watches. As well, as the Company's international operations expand, it or its subsidiaries become subject to laws and regulatory regimes that could differ materially from those under which they operate in Canada and the US.

Mining and manufacturing are subject to potential risks and liabilities associated with pollution of the environment and the disposal of waste products occurring as a result of mining and manufacturing operations. To the extent that the Company's operations are subject to uninsured environmental liabilities, the payment of such liabilities could have a material adverse effect on the Company.

Climate Change

Canada ratified the Kyoto Protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in late 2002 and the Kyoto Protocol came into effect in Canada in February 2005. The Canadian government has established a number of policy measures in order to meet its emission reduction guidelines. While the impact of these measures cannot be quantified at this time, the likely effect will be to increase costs for fossil fuels, electricity and transportation; restrict industrial emission levels; impose added costs for emissions in excess of permitted levels; and increase costs for monitoring and reporting. Compliance with these initiatives could have a material adverse effect on the Company's results of operations.

Resource and Reserve Estimates

The Company's figures for mineral resources and ore reserves on the Diavik group of mineral claims are estimates, and no assurance can be given that the anticipated carats will be recovered. The estimation of reserves is a subjective process. Forecasts are based on engineering data, projected future rates of production and the timing of future expenditures, all of which are subject to numerous uncertainties and various interpretations. The Company expects that its estimates of reserves will change to reflect updated information as well as to reflect depletion due to production. Reserve estimates may be revised upward or downward based on the results of current and future drilling, testing or production levels, and on changes in mine design. In addition, market fluctuations in the price of diamonds or increases in the costs to recover diamonds from the Diavik Diamond Mine may render the mining of ore reserves uneconomical.

Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Due to the uncertainty that may attach to inferred mineral resources, there is no assurance that mineral resources at the Diavik property will be upgraded to proven and probable ore reserves.

Insurance

The Company's business is subject to a number of risks and hazards, including adverse environmental conditions, industrial accidents, labour disputes, unusual or unexpected geological conditions, risks relating to the physical security of diamonds and jewelry held as inventory or in transit, changes in the regulatory environment and natural phenomena such as inclement weather conditions. Such occurrences could result in damage to the Diavik Diamond Mine, personal injury or death, environmental damage to the Diavik property, delays in mining, the closing of Harry Winston Inc.'s manufacturing facilities or salons, monetary losses and possible legal liability. Although insurance is maintained to protect against certain risks in connection with the Diavik Diamond Mine and the Company's operations, the insurance in place will not cover all potential risks. It may not be possible to maintain insurance to cover insurable risks at economically feasible premiums.

Fuel Costs

The Diavik Diamond Mine's expected fuel needs are purchased periodically during the year for storage, and transported to the mine site by way of the winter road. These costs will increase if transportation by air freight is required due to a shortened "winter road season" or unexpectedly high fuel usage.

The cost of the fuel purchased is based on the then prevailing price and expensed into operating costs on a usage basis. The Diavik Diamond Mine currently has no hedges for its future anticipated fuel consumption.

Reliance on Skilled Employees

Production at the Diavik Diamond Mine is dependent upon the efforts of certain skilled employees of DDMI. The loss of these employees or the inability of DDMI to attract and retain additional skilled employees may adversely affect the level of diamond production from the Diavik Diamond Mine.

The Company's success in marketing rough diamonds and operating the business of Harry Winston Inc. is dependent on the services of key executives and skilled employees, as well as the continuance of key relationships with certain third parties, such as diamantaires. The loss of these persons or the Company's inability to attract and retain additional skilled employees or to establish and maintain relationships with required third parties may adversely affect its business and future operations in marketing diamonds and operating its luxury brand segment.

Expansion and Refurbishment of the Existing Salon Network

A key component of the Company's luxury brand strategy in recent years has been the expansion of its salon network. The Company currently expects to expand its retail salon network to 35 salons (in total) world-wide by 2016. An additional objective of the Company is to achieve compound annual growth rate in sales in the mid teens in the luxury brand segment and an operating profit in the low to mid teens in the luxury brand segment, in each case over the five-year period from fiscal 2012 to 2016. Although the Company considers these objectives to be reasonable, they are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, and there can be no assurance that these objectives will be realized. This strategy requires the Company to make ongoing capital expenditures to build and open new salons, to refurbish existing salons from time to time, and to incur additional operating expenses in order to operate the new salons. To date, much of this expansion has been financed by Harry Winston Inc. through borrowings. The successful expansion of the Company's global salon network, and achieving an increase in sales and in operating profit, will depend on a variety of factors, including world-wide economic conditions, market demand for luxury goods, the strength of the Harry Winston brand and the availability of sufficient funding. There can be no assurance that the expansion of the salon network will continue or that the current expansion will prove successful in increasing annual sales or earnings from the luxury brand segment, and the increased debt levels resulting from this expansion could negatively impact the Company's liquidity and its results from operations in the absence of increased sales and earnings.

Competition in the Luxury Brand Segment

The Company is exposed to competition in the luxury brand market from other luxury goods, diamond, jewelry and watch retailers. The ability of Harry Winston Inc. to successfully compete with such luxury goods, diamond, jewelry and watch retailers is dependent upon a number of factors, including the ability to source high-end polished diamonds and protect and promote its distinctive brand name and reputation. If Harry Winston Inc. is unable to successfully compete in the luxury jewelry segment, then the Company's results of operations will be adversely affected.

Changes in Accounting Policies

Business Combinations and Non-Controlling Interests

Effective February 1, 2010, the Company early adopted Handbook Section 1582, "Business Combinations", Handbook Section, 1601 "Consolidated Financial Statements", Handbook Section 1602, "Non-Controlling Interests", and amendments to Handbook Section 3251, "Equity", from the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants ("CICA"), which have been applied retrospectively. Under these sections, non-controlling interest is reported as a component of shareholders' equity. As a result, the prior year amounts for non-controlling interest in the consolidated balance sheet have been reclassified into shareholders' equity.

                 Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

                    YEARS ENDED JANUARY 31, 2011 AND 2010
           (TABULAR AMOUNTS IN THOUSANDS OF UNITED STATES DOLLARS,
                         EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE NOTED)

NOTE 1:

Nature of Operations

Harry Winston Diamond Corporation (the "Company") is a diamond enterprise with premium assets in the mining and luxury brand segments of the diamond industry.

The Company's most significant asset is an ownership interest in the Diavik group of mineral claims. The Diavik Joint Venture (the "Joint Venture") is an unincorporated joint arrangement between Diavik Diamond Mines Inc. ("DDMI") (60%) and Harry Winston Diamond Limited Partnership ("HWDLP") (40%) where HWDLP holds an undivided 40% ownership interest in the assets, liabilities and expenses of the Diavik Diamond Mine. DDMI is the operator of the Diavik Diamond Mine. DDMI and HWDLP are headquartered in Yellowknife, Canada. DDMI is a wholly owned subsidiary of Rio Tinto plc of London, England.

On August 25, 2010, Harry Winston Diamond Corporation reacquired from Kinross Gold Corporation ("Kinross") for $191.2 million (including transaction costs) its 9% indirect interest in the Diavik Joint Venture (the "Kinross Buy Back Transaction"), representing Kinross's direct 22.5% interest in HWDLP previously acquired in March 2009. The purchase price for Kinross's 22.5% interest in HWDLP was based on the market value of consideration on the closing date and was satisfied by the payment of $50.0 million in cash, the issuance to Kinross of approximately 7.1 million Harry Winston Diamond Corporation common shares from treasury with a market value of $69.7 million and the issuance to Kinross of a promissory note in the amount of $70.0 million, maturing on August 25, 2011. The note bears interest at a rate of 5% per annum and can be repaid in cash or, subject to certain limitations, treasury common shares issued by the Company. The issuance of such shares is expected to be subject to approval by the Company's shareholders in most circumstances. With this transaction, the Company's ownership interest in the Diavik Joint Venture was increased back to 40%.

The Company also owns Harry Winston Inc., the premier fine jewelry and watch retailer. The results of Harry Winston Inc., located in New York City, US, are consolidated in the financial statements of the Company.

Certain comparative figures have been reclassified to conform with the current year's presentation.

NOTE 2:

Significant Accounting Policies

The consolidated financial statements are prepared by management in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in Canada. The principal accounting policies presently followed by the Company are summarized as follows:

(a) Principles of Consolidation

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and all of its subsidiaries as well as its proportionate share of unincorporated joint arrangements.

SUBSIDIARIES

A subsidiary is an entity that is controlled by the Company. The consolidated financial statements include all the assets, liabilities, revenues, expenses and cash flows of the Company and its subsidiaries after eliminating intercompany balances and transactions. For partly owned subsidiaries, the net assets and net earnings attributable to non-controlling shareholders are presented as non-controlling interests on the consolidated balance sheets and consolidated statements of earnings.

JOINT ARRANGEMENTS THAT ARE NOT ENTITIES ("JOINT ARRANGEMENTS")

The Diavik Joint Venture is an unincorporated joint arrangement. HWDLP owns an undivided 40% ownership interest in the assets, liabilities and expenses of the Joint Venture. The Company records its proportionate interest in the assets, liabilities and expenses of the Joint Venture in its consolidated financial statements with a one-month lag. The accounting policies described below include those of the Joint Venture. With the closing of the Kinross Buy Back Transaction, the Company's economic interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine was increased back to 40%.

(b) Measurement Uncertainty

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") requires management to make estimates and assumptions 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 earnings, revenues and expenses during the reporting year. Significant areas requiring the use of management estimates relate to the determination of impairment of capital assets, intangible assets, goodwill and deferred mineral property costs, estimation of future site restoration costs and future income taxes. Financial results as determined by actual events could differ from those estimated.

(c) Revenue Recognition

Revenue from rough diamond sales is recognized upon delivery of merchandise when the customer takes ownership and assumes risk of loss, persuasive evidence that an arrangement exists, the Company's price to the customer is fixed or determinable and collection of the resulting receivable is reasonably assured.

Revenue from fine jewelry and watch sales is recognized upon delivery of merchandise when the customer takes ownership and assumes risk of loss, collection of the relevant receivable is probable, persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists and the sales price is fixed or determinable. Sales are reported net of returns.

(d) Cash Resources

Cash and cash equivalents, and cash collateral and cash reserves, consist of cash on hand, balances with banks and short-term money market instruments (with a maturity on acquisition of less than 90 days), and are carried at fair value.

(e) Trade Accounts Receivable

Trade accounts receivable are recorded at the invoiced amount and generally do not bear interest. The allowance for doubtful accounts is the Company's best estimate of the amount of probable credit losses in the existing accounts receivable. The Company reviews its allowance for doubtful accounts monthly. Account balances are written off against the allowance after all means of collection have been exhausted and the potential for recovery is considered remote.

(f) Inventory

Rough diamond inventory is recorded at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Cost is determined on an average cost basis, including production costs and value-added processing activity.

Merchandise inventory is recorded at the lower of cost or net realizable value and includes fine jewelry and watches. Included in merchandise inventory are production costs such as material, labour and overhead costs.

Supplies inventory is recorded at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Supplies inventory includes consumables and spare parts to be maintained at the Diavik Diamond Mine site and at the Company's sorting and distribution facility locations, and raw materials used in the manufacturing of luxury brand merchandise inventory.

(g) Deferred Mineral Property Costs

All direct costs relating to mineral properties, including mineral claim acquisition costs, exploration and development expenditures in the pre-production stage, ongoing property exploration expenditures, pre-production operating costs net of any recoveries, interest, and amortization, are capitalized and accumulated on a property-by-property basis.

The costs of deferred mineral properties from which there is production are amortized using the unit-of-production method based on carats of diamonds recovered during the period relative to estimated proven and probable ore reserves. The Company does not include estimates of indicated or inferred resources in its calculation of ore reserves.

General exploration expenditures that do not relate to specific resource properties are expensed in the period incurred.

On an ongoing basis, the Company evaluates each property based on results to date to determine the nature of exploration and development activities that are warranted in the future. If there is little prospect of the Joint Venture continuing to explore or develop a property, the deferred costs related to that property are written down to the estimated fair value.

(h) Capital Assets

Capital assets are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and amortization. Depreciation and amortization are provided using the unit-of-production method or straight-line method as appropriate. The unit-of-production method is applied to a substantial portion of Diavik Diamond Mine capital assets and, depending on the asset, is based on carats of diamonds recovered during the period relative to the estimated proven and probable ore reserves of the ore deposit being mined, or to the total ore deposit. The Company does not include estimates of indicated or inferred resources in its calculation of ore reserves. Other capital assets are depreciated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the related assets, which are as follows:

    Asset                                       Estimated useful life (years)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Buildings                                                          10-40
    Machinery and mobile equipment                                      3-10
    Computer equipment and software                                        3
    Furniture and equipment                                             2-10
    Leasehold and building improvements                             Up to 20
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

Amortization for mine related assets was charged to deferred mineral property costs during the pre-commercial production stage.

Maintenance and repair costs are charged to earnings while expenditures for major renewals and improvements are capitalized.

The recoverability of the amounts shown for the Diavik Diamond Mine capital assets is dependent upon the continued existence of economically recoverable reserves, upon maintaining title and beneficial interest in the property, and upon future profitable production or proceeds from disposition of the diamond properties. The amounts representing Diavik Diamond Mine capital assets do not necessarily represent present or future values.

Upon the disposition of capital assets, the accumulated amortization is deducted from the original cost and any gain or loss is reflected in current earnings.

(i) Intangible Assets

Intangible assets acquired individually or as part of a group of other assets are initially recognized and measured at cost. The cost of a group of intangible assets acquired in a transaction, including those acquired in a business combination that meet the specified criteria for recognition apart from goodwill, is allocated to the individual assets acquired based on their fair values at acquisition.

Intangible assets with finite useful lives are amortized on a straight-line basis over their useful lives as follows:

    Asset                                       Estimated useful life (years)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Wholesale distribution network                                        10
    Store leases                                                     Up to 9
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

The amortization methods and estimated useful lives of intangible assets are reviewed annually.

Intangible assets with indefinite useful lives are not amortized and are tested for impairment annually, or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the asset might be impaired. The impairment test compares the carrying amount of the intangible asset with its fair value, and an impairment loss is recognized in earnings for the excess, if any.

(j) Other Assets

Other assets include depreciable assets amortized over a period not exceeding ten years.

(k) Future Site Restoration Costs

The Company records the fair value of any asset retirement obligation as a long-term liability in the year in which the related environmental disturbance occurs, based on the net present value of the estimated future costs. The fair value of the liability is added to the carrying amount of the deferred mineral property and this additional carrying amount is amortized over the life of the asset based on units of production. The obligation is adjusted periodically to reflect the passage of time and changes in the estimated future cash flows underlying the obligation. If the obligation is settled for other than the carrying amount of the liability, the Company will recognize a gain or loss on settlement.

(l) Foreign Currency Translation

The functional currency of the Company is the US dollar. At year end, monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are translated to US dollars at exchange rates in effect at the balance sheet date and non-monetary assets and liabilities are translated at rates of exchange in effect when the assets were acquired or obligations were incurred. Revenues and expenses are translated at rates in effect at the time of the transactions. Foreign exchange gains and losses are included in earnings.

For certain subsidiaries of the Company where the functional currency is not the US dollar, the assets and liabilities of these subsidiaries are translated at the rate of exchange in effect at the balance sheet date. Revenues and expenses are translated at the rate of exchange in effect at the time of the transactions. Foreign exchange gains and losses are accumulated in other comprehensive income under shareholders' equity.

(m) Income and Mining Taxes

The Company accounts for income taxes under the asset and liability method. Under this method, future tax assets and liabilities are recognized for future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying value and the tax basis of assets and liabilities.

Future tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted or substantively enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. A reduction in respect of the benefit of a future tax asset (a valuation allowance) is recorded against any future tax asset if it is not likely to be realized. The effect on future tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in earnings in the year during which the change in tax rates is considered to be substantively enacted.

(n) Stock-Based Compensation

The Company applies the fair value method to all grants of stock options.

The fair value of options granted is estimated at the date of grant using a Black-Scholes option pricing model incorporating assumptions regarding risk-free interest rates, dividend yield, volatility factor of the expected market price of the Company's stock, and a weighted average expected life of the options. The estimated fair value of the options is recorded as an expense on a straight-line basis over the vesting period, with an offsetting credit to shareholders' equity. Any consideration received on amounts attributable to stock options is credited to share capital.

(o) Restricted and Deferred Share Unit Plans

The Restricted and Deferred Share Unit ("RSU" and "DSU") Plans are full value phantom shares that mirror the value of Harry Winston Diamond Corporation's publicly traded common shares. Grants under the RSU Plan are on a discretionary basis to employees of the Company subject to Board of Director approval. Under the prior RSU Plan, each RSU grant vests on the third anniversary of the grant date. Under the 2010 RSU Plan, each RSU grant vests equally over a three-year period. Vesting under both RSU Plans is subject to special rules for death, disability and change in control. Grants under the DSU Plan are awarded to non-executive directors of the Company. Each DSU grant vests immediately on the grant date. The expenses related to the RSUs and DSUs are accrued based on the price of Harry Winston Diamond Corporation's common shares at the end of the period and on the probability of vesting. This expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the vesting period.

(p) Post Retirement Benefits

The expected costs of post retirement benefits under defined benefit arrangements are charged to earnings over the service lives of employees entitled to those benefits. Variations from the regular cost are spread on a straight-line basis over the expected average remaining service lives of relevant current employees. The plan assets and liabilities are valued annually by qualified actuaries.

(q) Financial Instruments

From time to time, the Company may use a limited number of derivative financial instruments to manage its foreign currency and interest rate exposure. For a derivative to qualify as a hedge at inception and throughout the hedged period, the Company formally documents the nature and relationships between the hedging instruments and hedged items, as well as its risk-management objectives, strategies for undertaking the various hedge transactions and method of assessing hedge effectiveness. 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. Gains and losses resulting from any ineffectiveness in a hedging relationship must be recognized immediately in net earnings. The Company may also have a limited number of embedded derivatives relating to the Diavik Diamond Mine. Derivatives embedded in non-derivative host contracts are recognized separately unless closely related to the host contract. The Company does not use derivatives for trading or speculative purposes.

(r) Basic and Diluted Earnings per Share

Basic earnings per share are calculated by dividing net earnings (loss) by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the year.

Diluted earnings per share are determined using the treasury stock method to calculate the dilutive effect of options and warrants. The treasury stock method assumes that the exercise of any "in-the-money" options with the option proceeds would be used to purchase common shares at the average market value for the year. Options with an exercise price higher than the average market value for the year are not included in the calculation of diluted earnings per share as such options are not dilutive.

(s) Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

Long-lived assets, including property, plant and equipment and purchased intangibles subject to amortization, are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to estimated undiscounted future cash flows expected to be generated by the asset. If the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its estimated future cash flows, an impairment charge is recognized in the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds the fair value of the asset. Assets to be disposed of by sale would be separately presented in the balance sheet and reported at the lower of the carrying amount or fair value less costs to sell, and are no longer depreciated. The assets and liabilities of a disposed group classified as held for sale would be presented separately in the appropriate asset and liability sections of the balance sheet.

(t) Adoption of New Accounting Standards and Developments

Business Combinations and Non-Controlling Interests

Effective February 1, 2010, the Company early adopted Handbook Section 1582, "Business Combinations", Handbook Section 1601, "Consolidated Financial Statements", Handbook Section 1602, "Non-Controlling Interests", and amendments to Handbook Section 3251, "Equity", from the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants, which have been applied retrospectively. Under these sections, non-controlling interest is reported as a component of shareholders' equity. As a result, the prior year amounts for non-controlling interest in the consolidated balance sheet have been reclassified into shareholders' equity.

    (a) The Joint Venture only earns interest income.

HWDLP is contingently liable for DDMI's portion of the liabilities of the Joint Venture, and to the extent HWDLP's participating interest has increased due to the failure of DDMI to make a cash contribution when required, HWDLP would have access to an increased portion of the assets of the Joint Venture to settle these liabilities.

    (a) MINING SEGMENT CREDIT FACILITIES

        (i)   On June 24, 2010, the Company announced that it has completed a
              mining segment senior secured revolving credit facility with
              Standard Chartered Bank for $100.0 million. On February 28,
              2011, the Company increased the facility by $25.0 million to
              $125.0 million. The facility has an initial maturity date of
              June 24, 2013 with two one-year extensions at the Company's
              option. There are no scheduled repayments required before
              maturity. The facility is available to the Company and Harry
              Winston Diamond Mines Ltd. for general corporate purposes.
              Borrowings bear an interest margin of 3.5%. The Company is
              required to comply with financial covenants at the mining
              segment level customary for a financing of this nature, with
              change in control provisions at the Company and Diavik Diamond
              Mines level. At January 31, 2011, the Company had $50.0 million
              outstanding on its mining segment senior secured revolving
              credit facility, which was used to fund the Kinross Buy Back
              Transaction.

        (ii)  On August 25, 2010, the Company issued a promissory note in the
              amount of $70.0 million, maturing on August 25, 2011, as part
              of the Kinross Buy Back Transaction. The note can be repaid in
              cash or, subject to certain limitations, treasury common shares
              issued by the Company. The issuance of such shares is expected
              to be subject to approval by the Company's shareholders in most
              circumstances.

        (iii) The Company's first mortgage on real property has scheduled
              principal payments of approximately $0.2 million quarterly, and
              may be prepaid at any time.

    (b) LUXURY BRAND SEGMENT CREDIT FACILITIES

        (i)   Harry Winston Inc. maintains a credit agreement with a
              syndicate of banks for a $250.0 million five-year revolving
              credit facility. In addition, Harry Winston Inc. may increase
              the credit facility by an additional $50.0 million to $300.0
              million during the term of the facility. There are no scheduled
              repayments required before maturity on March 31, 2013. The
              credit facility is supported by a $20.0 million limited
              guarantee provided by Harry Winston Diamond Corporation. The
              amount available under this facility is subject to a borrowing
              base formula based on certain assets of Harry Winston Inc.

              The credit agreement contains affirmative and negative non-
              financial and financial covenants, which apply to the luxury
              brand segment. These provisions include consolidated minimum
              tangible net worth, minimum coverage of fixed charges, leverage
              ratio and limitations on capital expenditures and certain
              investments. The credit agreement also includes a change of
              control provision, which would result in the entire unpaid
              principal and all accrued interest of the facility becoming due
              immediately upon change of control, as defined. Any material
              adverse change, as defined, in the luxury brand segment's
              business, assets, liabilities, consolidated financial position
              or consolidated results of operations constitutes default under
              the agreement.

              The luxury brand segment has pledged 100% of Harry Winston
              Inc.'s common stock and 66 2/3% of the common stock of its
              foreign subsidiaries to the bank to secure the loan. Inventory
              and accounts receivable of Harry Winston Inc. are pledged as
              collateral to secure the borrowings of Harry Winston Inc. In
              addition, an assignment of proceeds on insurance covering
              security collateral was made.

              Loans under the credit facility can be either fixed rate loans
              or revolving line of credit loans. The fixed rate loans will
              bear interest within a range of 1.50% to 2.25% above LIBOR,
              based upon a pricing grid determined by the fixed charge
              coverage ratio. Interest under this option will be determined
              for periods of either one, two, three or six months. The
              revolving line of credit loans will bear interest within a
              range of 0.50% to 0.75% above the bank's prime rate based upon
              a pricing grid determined by the fixed charge coverage ratio as
              well.

        (ii)  Harry Winston S.A. maintains a 25-year loan agreement for CHF
              17.5 million ($18.4 million) used to finance the construction
              of the Company's watch factory in Geneva, Switzerland. The loan
              agreement is comprised of a CHF 3.5 million ($3.7 million) loan
              and a CHF 14.0 million ($14.7 million) loan. The bank has a
              secured interest in the factory building.

The Joint Venture has an obligation under various agreements (note 14) to reclaim and restore the lands disturbed by its mining operations.

The Company's share of the total undiscounted amount of the future cash flows that will be required to settle the obligation incurred at January 31, 2011 is estimated to be $85.9 million, of which approximately $24.1 million is expected to occur at the end of the mine life. The anticipated cash flows relating to the obligation at the time of the obligation have been discounted at a credit adjusted interest rate of 4.96%.

(c) Stock Options

Under the Employee Stock Option Plan, amended and approved by the shareholders on June 4, 2008, the Company may grant options for up to 6,000,000 shares of common stock. Options may be granted to any director, officer, employee or consultant of the Company or any of its affiliates. Options granted to directors vest immediately and options granted to officers, employees or consultants vest over three to four years. The maximum term of an option is ten years. The number of shares reserved for issuance to any one optionee pursuant to options cannot exceed 2% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company at the date of grant of such options.

The exercise price of each option cannot be less than the fair market value of the shares on the last trading day preceding the date of grant.

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 $1.3 million for fiscal 2011 (2010 - $1.7 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 (2011 - $2.8 million; 2010 - $nil).

Changes in share options outstanding are as follows:

During the fiscal year, the Company granted 145,880 RSUs (net of forfeitures) and 33,739 DSUs under an employee and director incentive compensation program, respectively. The RSU and DSU Plans are full value phantom shares that mirror the value of Harry Winston Diamond Corporation's publicly traded common shares.

Grants under the RSU Plan are on a discretionary basis to employees of the Company subject to Board of Director approval or in accordance with contractual commitments. The RSUs granted in fiscal 2011 vest one-third on March 31, 2011, and one-third on each anniversary thereafter. Prior RSU grants vest on the third anniversary of the grant date. The vesting of grants of RSUs is subject to special rules for a change in control, death and disability. The Company shall pay out cash on the respective vesting dates of RSUs and redemption dates of DSUs.

Only non-executive directors of the Company are eligible for grants under the DSU Plan. Each DSU grant vests immediately on the grant date.

The expenses related to the RSUs and DSUs are accrued based on the price of Harry Winston Diamond Corporation's common shares at the end of the period and on the probability of vesting. This expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the vesting period. The Company recognized an expense of $1.0 million (2010 - $1.5 million) for the year ended January 31, 2011.

Commitments and Guarantees

(a) Environmental Agreement

Through negotiations of environmental and other agreements, the Joint Venture must provide funding for the Environmental Monitoring Advisory Board. HWDLP's share of this funding requirement was $0.2 million for calendar 2010. Further funding will be required in future years; however, specific amounts have not yet been determined. These agreements also state that the Joint Venture must provide security deposits for the performance by the Joint Venture of its reclamation and abandonment obligations under all environmental laws and regulations. HWDLP's share of the letters of credit outstanding, posted by the operator of the Joint Venture with respect to the environmental agreements as at January 31, 2011, was $80.4 million. The agreement specifically provides that these funding requirements will be reduced by amounts incurred by the Joint Venture on reclamation and abandonment activities.

(b) Participation Agreements

The Joint Venture has signed participation agreements with various native groups. These agreements are expected to contribute to the social, economic and cultural well-being of the Aboriginal bands. The agreements are each for an initial term of twelve years and will be automatically renewed on terms to be agreed upon for successive periods of six years thereafter until termination. The agreements terminate in the event that the mine permanently ceases to operate.

(c) Commitments

Commitments include the cumulative maximum funding commitments secured by letters of credit of the Joint Venture's environmental and participation agreements at HWDLP's 40% ownership interest, before any reduction of future reclamation activities; and future minimum annual rentals under non-cancellable operating and capital leases for luxury brand salons and corporate office space, and long-term leases for property, land, office premises and a fuel tank farm at the Diavik Diamond Mine; and are as follows:

(a) Defined Benefit Pension Plan

The luxury brand segment sponsors three separate defined benefit pension plans covering employees in the United States, Japan and Switzerland. The principal pension plan is the Harry Winston Employee Retirement Plan for Harry Winston Inc. US employees. The benefits for the Harry Winston Inc. plan are based on years of service and the employee's compensation. In April 2001, Harry Winston Inc. amended its defined benefit pension plan. The amendment froze plan participation effective April 30, 2001. Harry Winston Inc.'s funding policy for the US plan is to contribute amounts to the plan sufficient to meet the minimum funding requirements set forth in the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. Plan assets consist primarily of fixed income, equity and other short-term investments. The other two defined benefit pension plans are sponsored by luxury brand segment subsidiaries Harry Winston Japan, K.K. and Harry Winston S.A., which converted their previous pension plan arrangements into defined benefit plans effective February 1, 2007. Pension liabilities for these two non-US plans are funded in accordance with local laws and regulations.

(iii) THE SIGNIFICANT ASSUMPTIONS USED FOR HARRY WINSTON INC.'S US PLAN ARE AS FOLLOWS:

                                                           2011         2010

    Expected long-term rate of return                     7.50%        7.50%
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    BENEFIT COSTS FOR THE YEAR
    Discount rate                                         5.56%        6.53%
    Expected long-term rate of return on plan assets      7.50%        7.50%
    Rate of compensation increase                         0.00%        0.00%
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

Harry Winston Inc.'s overall expected long-term rate of return on assets is 7.50%. The expected long-term rate of return is based on the portfolio as a whole and not on the sum of the returns on individual asset categories. The return is based exclusively on historical returns, without adjustments. Harry Winston S.A.'s overall expected long-term rate of return on assets is 3.75%. Long-term rate of return for Harry Winston Japan, K.K. plan assets is not applicable due to the unfunded status of the plan.

The weighted average assumptions used to determine the benefit obligations for Harry Winston Japan, K.K. and Harry Winston S.A. at January 31, 2011 are a discount rate and expected long-term rate of return of 1.58% and 0.00%, and 2.75% and 3.75%, respectively.

The weighted average assumptions used to determine the benefit costs for Harry Winston Japan, K.K. and Harry Winston S.A. at January 31, 2011 are a discount rate, expected long-term rate of return, and rate of compensation increase of 1.84%, 0.00% and 4.36%, and 2.75%, 3.75% and 3.00%, respectively.

(b) Defined Contribution Plan

Harry Winston Inc. has a defined contribution 401(k) plan covering substantially all employees in the United States. For the fiscal years ended January 31, 2011 and 2010, Harry Winston Inc. elected to increase the employer-matching contribution to 100% of the first 6% of the employee's salary from 50% in fiscal 2007 and prior. Employees must meet minimum service requirements and be employed on December 31 of each year in order to receive this matching contribution.

The Joint Venture sponsors a defined contribution plan whereby the employer contributes 6% of the employee's salary.

Harry Winston Diamond Corporation sponsors a defined contribution plan for Canadian employees whereby the employer contributes to a maximum of 6% of the employee's salary to the maximum contribution limit under Canada's Income Tax Act.

(c) Deferred Compensation Plan

At January 31, 2010, Harry Winston Inc. had a liability of $9.2 million relating to deferred compensation plans for a key executive whose employment with Harry Winston Inc. terminated on December 31, 2009. The $9.2 million was paid to the executive during fiscal 2011.

NOTE 16:

Capital Management

The Company's capital includes cash and cash equivalents, short-term debt, long-term debt and equity, which includes issued common shares, contributed surplus and retained earnings.

The Company's primary objective with respect to its capital management is to ensure that it has sufficient cash resources to maintain its ongoing operations, to provide returns to shareholders and benefits for other stakeholders, and to pursue growth opportunities. To meet these needs, the Company may from time to time raise additional funds through borrowing and/or the issuance of equity or debt or by securing strategic partners, upon approval by the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors reviews and approves any material transactions out of the ordinary course of business, including proposals on acquisitions or other major investments or divestitures, as well as annual capital and operating budgets.

The Company assesses liquidity and capital resources on a consolidated basis. The Company's requirements are for cash operating expenses, working capital, contractual debt requirements and capital expenditures. The Company believes that it will generate sufficient liquidity to meet its anticipated requirements for the next twelve months.

With the completion of the sale by Kinross of its 15.2 million common shares of the Company as of July 31, 2010, the capital management provisions imposed on the Company as part of the March 2009 Kinross investment no longer apply.

NOTE 17:

Financial Instruments

The Company has various financial instruments comprising cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, bank advances and long-term debt.

Cash and cash equivalents consist of cash on hand and balances with banks and short-term investments held in overnight deposits with a maturity on acquisition of less than 90 days. Cash and cash equivalents, which are designated as held-for-trading, are carried at fair value based on quoted market prices and classified within Level 1 of the fair value hierarchy established by CICA Handbook Section 3862.

The fair value of accounts receivable is determined by the amount of cash anticipated to be received in the normal course of business from the financial asset.

The Company's long-term debt is fully secured; therefore, the fair value of this instrument at January 31, 2011 is considered to approximate its carrying value.

The carrying values of these financial instruments are as follows:

NOTE 18:

Financial Risk Exposure and Risk Management

The Company is exposed, in varying degrees, to a variety of financial-instrument-related risks by virtue of its activities. The Company's overall financial risk-management program focuses on the preservation of capital and protecting current and future Company assets and cash flows by minimizing exposure to risks posed by the uncertainties and volatilities of financial markets.

The Company's Audit Committee has responsibility to review and discuss significant financial risks or exposures and to assess the steps management has taken to monitor, control, report and mitigate such risks to the Company.

Financial risk management is carried out by the Finance department, which identifies and evaluates financial risks and establishes controls and procedures to ensure financial risks are mitigated.

The types of risk exposure and the way in which such exposures are managed are as follows:

i) Currency Risk

The Company's sales are predominately denominated in US dollars. As the Company operates in an international environment, some of the Company's financial instruments and transactions are denominated in currencies other than the US dollar. The results of the Company's operations are subject to currency transaction risk and currency translation risk. The operating results and financial position of the Company are reported in US dollars in the Company's consolidated financial statements.

The Company's primary foreign exchange exposure impacting pre-tax earnings arises from the following sources:

    Net Canadian dollar denominated monetary assets and liabilities - The
    most significant exposure relates to the Company's Canadian dollar future
    income tax liability. The Company's functional and reporting currency is
    US dollars; however, the calculation of income tax expense is based on
    income in the currency of the country of origin. As such, the Company is
    continually subject to foreign exchange fluctuations, particularly as the
    Canadian dollar moves against the US dollar. The weakening/strengthening
    of the Canadian dollar versus the US dollar results in an unrealized
    foreign exchange gain/loss on the revaluation of the Canadian dollar
    denominated future income tax liability.

    Committed or anticipated foreign currency denominated transactions,
    primarily Canadian dollar costs at the Diavik Diamond Mine.

Based on the Company's net exposure to Canadian dollar monetary assets and liabilities at January 31, 2011, a one-cent change in the exchange rate would have impacted pre-tax net earnings for the year by $2.7 million.

ii) Interest Rate Risk

Interest rate risk is the risk borne by an interest-bearing asset or liability as a result of fluctuations in interest rates. Financial assets and financial liabilities with variable interest rates expose the Company to cash flow interest rate risk. The Company's most significant interest rate risk arises from its various credit facilities, which bear variable interest based on LIBOR. Based on the Company's LIBOR-based credit facilities at January 31, 2011, a 100 basis point change in LIBOR would have impacted pre-tax net earnings for the year by $1.9 million.

iii) Concentration of Credit Risk

Credit risk is the risk of a financial loss to the Company if a customer or counterparty to a financial instrument fails to meet its contractual obligation.

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to credit risk consist of trade receivables from luxury brand segment clients. While economic factors can affect credit risk, the Company manages risk by providing credit terms on a case-by-case basis only after a review of the client's financial position and credit history. The Company has not experienced significant losses in the past from its customers.

The Company's exposure to credit risk in the mining segment is minimized by its sales policy, which requires receipt of cash prior to the delivery of rough diamonds to its customers.

The Company manages credit risk, in respect of short-term investments, by maintaining bank accounts with Tier 1 banks and investing only in term deposits or banker's acceptances with highly rated financial institutions that are capable of prompt liquidation. The Company monitors and manages its concentration of counterparty credit risk on an ongoing basis.

At January 31, 2011, the Company's maximum counterparty credit exposure consists of the carrying amount of cash and cash equivalents and accounts receivable, which approximates fair value.

iv) Liquidity Risk

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Company will not be able to meet its financial obligations as they fall due.

The Company manages its liquidity by ensuring that there is sufficient capital to meet short-term and long-term business requirements, after taking into account cash flows from operations and the Company's holdings of cash and cash equivalents. The Company also strives to maintain sufficient financial liquidity at all times in order to participate in investment opportunities as they arise, as well as to withstand sudden adverse changes in economic circumstances. The Company assesses liquidity and capital resources on a consolidated basis. Management forecasts cash flows for its current and subsequent fiscal years to predict future financing requirements. Future requirements are met through a combination of committed credit facilities and access to capital markets.

At January 31, 2011, the Company had $108.7 million of cash and cash equivalents and $96.0 million available under credit facilities.

The following table summarizes the aggregate amount of contractual future cash outflows for the Company's financial liabilities:
