Jan '11
Phillips-Van Heusen Corporation announced that, in recognition of the favorable conditions in the credit markets, it is entering into discussions to amend the credit facility it entered into in May 2010 in connection with its acquisition of Tommy Hilfiger B.V. and certain related companies.

The transaction will reflect a deleveraging, including a voluntary prepayment of $150 million of principal in February 2011 previously anticipated to be made by January 30, 2011. In addition, a voluntary repayment of approximately $150 million of principal was made in December 2010.

The Company also announced that in connection with the discussions regarding the credit facility amendment, it was reaffirming its previous guidance estimates for revenue and earnings per share for the fiscal quarter and year ending January 30, 2011 and providing guidance for its 2010 capital expenditures and pro forma revenue and earnings before interest, taxes, and depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), adjusted as if the Tommy Hilfiger acquisition occurred as of the first day of the fiscal year.
