FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements within the “safe harbor” provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All statements other than those that are purely historical are forward-looking statements. Words such as “expect,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “intend,” “plan,” “project,” and similar expressions also identify forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the following:
the impact of recent accounting pronouncements;
recognition of revenue deferrals as revenue;
unrealized gains and losses from designated cash flow hedges;
total gross unrecognized tax benefits;
the impact of losses due to indemnification obligations;
the outcome of proceedings, lawsuits, disputes, and claims;
structure and timing of completion of the planned separation transaction;
process of completing the separation transaction, including estimated costs;
anticipated strategic, financial, operational or other benefits of the separation transaction, including future financial performance of the independent companies following the proposed separation transaction;
plans to restructure the Gap brand specialty fleet, including anticipated store closures and timing, impact to annualized sales, associated costs, and effect on annualized savings;
investing in digital and customer capabilities, as well as store experience;
increasing productivity by leveraging our scale and streamlining operations and processes;
attracting and retaining strong talent in our businesses and functions;
continuing to integrate social and environmental sustainability into business practices;
investing strategically in the business while maintaining operating discipline and driving efficiency;
continuing our investment in customer experience to drive higher customer engagement and loyalty;
continuing to invest in strengthening brand awareness, customer acquisition, and digital capabilities;
current cash balances and cash flows being sufficient to support our business operations, including growth initiatives, Gap specialty fleet rationalization efforts, and planned capital expenditures;
ability to supplement near-term liquidity, if necessary, with our $500 million revolving credit facility or other available market instruments;
the impact of the seasonality of our operations;
dividend payments in fiscal 2019; and
the impact of changes in internal control over financial reporting.
Because these forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, there are important factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. These factors include, without limitation, the following:
the risks associated with our plan to separate into two independent publicly-traded companies, including that the separation may not be completed in accordance with the expected plans or anticipated timeframe, or at all;
the risk that our plan to separate into two publicly-traded companies may not achieve some or all of the anticipated benefits;
the risk that we or our franchisees will be unsuccessful in gauging apparel trends and changing consumer preferences;
the highly competitive nature of our business in the United States and internationally;
the risk that failure to maintain, enhance and protect our brand image could have an adverse effect on our results of operations;
the risk that the failure to attract and retain key personnel, or effectively manage succession, could have an adverse impact on our results of operations;
the risk that our investments in customer, digital, and omni-channel shopping initiatives may not deliver the results we anticipate;
the risk that if we are unable to manage our inventory effectively, our gross margins will be adversely affected;




the risk that we are subject to data or other security breaches that may result in increased costs, violations of law, significant legal and financial exposure, and a loss of confidence in our security measures, which could have an adverse effect on our results of operations and our reputation;
the risk that a failure of, or updates or changes to, our information technology (“IT”) systems may disrupt our operations;
the risks to our business, including our costs and supply chain, associated with global sourcing and manufacturing;
the risk that changes in global economic conditions or consumer spending patterns could adversely impact our results of operations;
the risks to our efforts to expand internationally, including our ability to operate in regions where we have less experience;
the risks to our reputation or operations associated with importing merchandise from foreign countries, including failure of our vendors to adhere to our Code of Vendor Conduct;
the risk that our franchisees’ operation of franchise stores is not directly within our control and could impair the value of our brands;
the risk that we or our franchisees will be unsuccessful in identifying, negotiating, and securing new store locations and renewing, modifying, or terminating leases for existing store locations effectively;
the risk that foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations could adversely impact our financial results;
the risk that comparable sales and margins will experience fluctuations;
the risk that changes in our credit profile or deterioration in market conditions may limit our access to the capital markets and adversely impact our financial results or our business initiatives;
the risk that trade matters could increase the cost or reduce the supply of apparel available to us and adversely affect our business, financial condition, and results of operations;
the risk that changes in the regulatory or administrative landscape could adversely affect our financial condition and results of operations;
the risk that natural disasters, public health crises, political crises, negative global climate patterns, or other catastrophic events could adversely affect our operations and financial results, or those of our franchisees or vendors;
the risk that reductions in income and cash flow from our credit card arrangement related to our private label and co-branded credit cards could adversely affect our operating results and cash flows;
the risk that the adoption of new accounting pronouncements will impact future results;
the risk that we do not repurchase some or all of the shares we anticipate purchasing pursuant to our repurchase program; and
the risk that we will not be successful in defending various proceedings, lawsuits, disputes, and claims.
Additional information regarding factors that could cause results to differ can be found in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 2, 2019 and our other filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Future economic and industry trends that could potentially impact net sales and profitability are difficult to predict. These forward-looking statements are based on information as of May 31, 2019, and we assume no obligation to publicly update or revise our forward-looking statements even if experience or future changes make it clear that any projected results expressed or implied therein will not be realized.
We suggest that this document be read in conjunction with Management’s Discussion and Analysis included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 2, 2019.

THE GAP, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
Note 1. Accounting Policies
Basis of Presentation
The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets as of May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018, and the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income, the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income, the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Stockholders' Equity, and the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows for the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018 have been prepared by The Gap, Inc. (the “Company,” “we,” and “our”). In the opinion of management, such statements include all adjustments (which include normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary to present fairly our financial position, results of operations, stockholders' equity, and cash flows as of May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018 and for all periods presented. The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of February 2, 2019 has been derived from our audited financial statements.
The accompanying unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Accordingly, certain information and disclosures normally included in the notes to the annual financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) have been omitted from these interim financial statements, although the Company believes that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information not misleading. We suggest that you read these Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements and notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 2, 2019.
The results of operations for the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results that may be expected for the 52-week period ending February 1, 2020.

Accounting Pronouncements Recently Adopted
ASU No. 2016-02, Leases
In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued accounting standards update (“ASU”) No. 2016-02, Leases. Under the new guidance, lessees are required to recognize a lease liability and a right-of-use asset for leases at the commencement date. We adopted ASU No. 2016-02 and related amendments (collectively "ASC 842") on February 3, 2019 using the optional transition method, which allows for the prospective application of the standard. As of the effective date, we recorded a decrease to opening retained earnings of $86 million, net of tax, which consisted primarily of impairments for certain store and operating lease assets. In addition, we elected the package of practical expedients permitted under the transition guidance within the standard, which allowed us to carry forward our historical lease classification, to not reassess prior conclusions related to initial direct costs, and to not reassess whether any expired or existing contracts are or contain leases. We also elected the lessee practical expedient to combine lease and nonlease components for new leases and modified leases. The adoption of ASC 842 resulted in the recording of operating lease assets and operating lease liabilities of $5.7 billion and $6.6 billion, respectively, on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of February 3, 2019.
See Note 9 of Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for information regarding required disclosures related to our leases.
ASU No. 2017-12, Derivatives and Hedging: Targeted Improvements to Accounting for Hedging Activities
In August 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-12, Derivatives and Hedging: Targeted Improvements to Accounting for Hedging Activities. The amendments are intended to better align an entity’s risk management activities and financial reporting for hedging relationships through changes to the designation and measurement guidance for qualifying hedging relationships and the presentation of hedge results. In addition, this guidance amends and expands disclosure requirements. We adopted this ASU on a prospective basis on February 3, 2019. The adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
See Note 5 of Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for information regarding derivative financial instruments.

Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted
Except as noted below, the Company has considered all recent accounting pronouncements and concluded that there are no recent accounting pronouncements that may have a material impact on our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, based on current information.
ASU No. 2018-15, Customer's Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That Is a Service Contract
In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-15, Customer’s Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That Is a Service Contract. The ASU is intended to align the requirements for capitalization of implementation costs incurred in a cloud computing arrangement that is a service contract with the existing guidance for internal-use software. This guidance is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2019, with early adoption permitted. The guidance provides flexibility in adoption, allowing for either retrospective adjustment or prospective adjustment for all implementation costs incurred after the date of adoption. The Company is currently evaluating the impact this guidance may have on our Consolidated Financial Statements and related disclosures.
Restricted Cash
Any cash that is legally restricted from use is classified as restricted cash. If the purpose of restricted cash is related to acquiring a long-term asset, liquidating a long-term liability, or is otherwise unavailable for a period longer than one year from the balance sheet date, the restricted cash is included within other long-term assets on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Otherwise, restricted cash is included within other current assets on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
As of May 4, 2019, restricted cash primarily included consideration that serves as collateral for our insurance obligations. The following table provides a reconciliation of cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash reported within our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets to the total shown on our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows:

Note 2. Revenue
The Company’s revenues include merchandise sales at stores, online, and through franchise agreements. We also receive revenue sharing from our credit card agreement for private label and co-branded credit cards, and breakage revenue related to our gift cards, credit vouchers, and outstanding loyalty points. Breakage revenue is recognized based upon historical redemption patterns. For online sales and catalog sales, the Company has elected to treat shipping and handling as fulfillment activities and not a separate performance obligation. Accordingly, we recognize revenue for our single performance obligation related to online sales and catalog sales at the time control of the merchandise passes to the customer, which is generally at the time of shipment. We also record an allowance for estimated returns based on our historical return patterns and various other assumptions that management believes to be reasonable. Revenues are presented net of any taxes collected from customers and remitted to governmental authorities.
Our credit card agreement provides for certain payments to be made to us, including a share of revenue from the performance of the credit card portfolios and reimbursements of loyalty program discounts. We have identified separate performance obligations related to our credit card agreement that include both providing a license and an obligation to redeem loyalty points issued under the loyalty rewards program. Our obligation to provide a license is satisfied when the subsequent sale or usage occurs and our obligation to redeem loyalty points is deferred until those loyalty points are redeemed. Income related to our credit card agreement is classified within net sales on our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income.
We also have franchise agreements with unaffiliated franchisees to operate Gap, Banana Republic, and Old Navy stores in a number of countries throughout Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa. Under these agreements, third parties operate, or will operate, stores that sell apparel and related products under our brand names. We have identified separate performance obligations related to our franchise agreements that include both providing our franchise partners with a license and an obligation to supply franchise partners with our merchandise. Our obligation to provide a license is satisfied when the subsequent sale or usage occurs and our obligation to supply franchise partners with our merchandise is satisfied when control of the merchandise transfers. As of the quarter ended May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018, there were no material contract liabilities related to our franchise agreements.

7



We defer revenue when cash payments are received in advance of performance for unsatisfied obligations related to our gift cards, credit vouchers, outstanding loyalty points, and reimbursements of loyalty program discounts associated with our credit card agreement. For the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019, the opening and closing balance of deferred revenue for these obligations was $227 million and $206 million, respectively; $97 million of the opening balance was recognized as revenue during the period. For the thirteen weeks ended May 5, 2018, the opening and closing balance of deferred revenue for these obligations was $232 million and $201 million, respectively; $97 million of the opening balance was recognized as revenue during the period. We expect that the majority of our revenue deferrals as of the quarter ended May 4, 2019, will be recognized as revenue in the next 12 months as our performance obligations are satisfied.
See Note 13 of Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for disaggregation of revenue by brand and by region.
Note 3. Debt and Credit Facilities
As of May 4, 2019February 2, 2019, and May 5, 2018, the estimated fair value of our $1.25 billion aggregate principal amount of 5.95 percent notes (the “Notes”) due April 2021 was $1.30 billion, $1.30 billion, and $1.31 billion, respectively, and was based on the quoted market price of the Notes (level 1 inputs) as of the last business day of the respective fiscal quarter. The aggregate principal amount of the Notes is recorded in long-term debt on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets, net of the unamortized discount.
We have a $500 million, five-year, unsecured revolving credit facility (the “Facility”), which is scheduled to expire in May 2023. There were no borrowings and no material outstanding standby letters of credit under the Facility as of May 4, 2019.
We maintain multiple agreements with third parties that make unsecured revolving credit facilities available for our operations in foreign locations (the “Foreign Facilities”). These Foreign Facilities are uncommitted and are generally available for borrowings, overdraft borrowings, and the issuance of bank guarantees. The total capacity of the Foreign Facilities was $57 million as of May 4, 2019. As of May 4, 2019, there were no borrowings under the Foreign Facilities. There were $16 million in bank guarantees issued and outstanding primarily related to store leases under the Foreign Facilities as of May 4, 2019.
We have bilateral unsecured standby letter of credit agreements that are uncommitted and do not have expiration dates. As of May 4, 2019, we had $13 million in standby letters of credit issued under these agreements.
Note 4. Fair Value Measurements
The Company measures certain financial assets and liabilities at fair value on a recurring basis, including derivatives and available-for-sale debt securities. The Company categorizes financial assets and liabilities recorded at fair value based upon a three-level hierarchy that considers the related valuation techniques.
There were no purchases, sales, issuances, or settlements related to recurring level 3 measurements during the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019 or May 5, 2018. There were no transfers of financial assets or liabilities into or out of level 1, level 2, and level 3 during the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019 or May 5, 2018.

We have highly liquid investments classified as cash equivalents, which are placed primarily in time deposits, money market funds, and commercial paper. With the exception of our available-for-sale investments noted below, we value these investments at their original purchase prices plus interest that has accrued at the stated rate.
Our available-for-sale securities are comprised of investments in debt securities. These securities are recorded at fair value using market prices. As of May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018, the Company held $272 million and $164 million, respectively, of available-for-sale debt securities with maturity dates greater than three months and less than two years within short-term investments on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. In addition, as of May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018, the Company held $35 million of available-for-sale debt securities with maturities of less than three months at the time of purchase within cash and cash equivalents on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Unrealized gains or losses on available-for-sale debt securities included within accumulated other comprehensive income were immaterial as of May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018.

9



The Company regularly reviews its available-for-sale debt securities for other-than-temporary impairment. For the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018, the Company did not consider any of its securities to be other-than-temporarily impaired and, accordingly, did not recognize any impairment loss.
Derivative financial instruments primarily include foreign exchange forward contracts. The currencies hedged against changes in the U.S. dollar are Canadian dollars, Japanese yen, British pounds, Euro, Mexican pesos, Chinese yuan, and Taiwan dollars. The fair value of the Company’s derivative financial instruments is determined using pricing models based on current market rates. Derivative financial instruments in an asset position are recorded in other current assets or other long-term assets on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Derivative financial instruments in a liability position are recorded in accrued expenses and other current liabilities or lease incentives and other long-term liabilities on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
We maintain the Gap Inc. Deferred Compensation Plan (“DCP”), which allows eligible employees and non-employee directors to defer base compensation up to a maximum percentage. Plan investments are directed by participants and are recorded at market value and designated for the DCP. The fair value of the Company’s DCP assets is determined based on quoted market prices, and the assets are recorded in other long-term assets on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

Nonfinancial Assets
We review the carrying amount of long-lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. The fair value of the long-lived assets is determined using level 3 inputs and based on discounted future cash flows of the asset or asset group using a discount rate commensurate with the risk. The asset group is defined as the lowest level for which identifiable cash flows are available and largely independent of the cash flows of other groups of assets, which for our retail stores, is primarily at the store level.
There were no material impairment charges recorded for long-lived assets for the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019, or May 5, 2018.
As discussed in Note 1, we recorded a decrease to opening retained earnings due to the adoption of ASC 842 related to impairments as of the effective date.
We review the carrying amount of goodwill and other indefinite-lived intangible assets for impairment annually and whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that it is more likely than not that the carrying amount may not be recoverable.
There were no impairment charges recorded for goodwill or other indefinite-lived intangible assets for the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019, or May 5, 2018.
Note 5. Derivative Financial Instruments
We operate in foreign countries, which exposes us to market risk associated with foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. We use derivative financial instruments to manage our exposure to foreign currency exchange rate risk and do not enter into derivative financial contracts for trading purposes. Consistent with our risk management guidelines, we hedge a portion of our transactions related to merchandise purchases for foreign operations and certain intercompany transactions using foreign exchange forward contracts. These contracts are entered into with large, reputable, financial institutions that are monitored for counterparty risk. The currencies hedged against changes in the U.S. dollar are Canadian dollars, Japanese yen, British pounds, Euro, Mexican pesos, Chinese yuan, and Taiwan dollars. Cash flows from derivative financial instruments are classified as cash flows from operating activities on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.

Cash Flow Hedges
We designate the following foreign exchange forward contracts as cash flow hedges: (1) forward contracts used to hedge forecasted merchandise purchases and related costs denominated in U.S. dollars made by our international subsidiaries whose functional currencies are their local currencies; (2) forward contracts used to hedge forecasted intercompany royalty payments denominated in foreign currencies received by entities whose functional currencies are U.S. dollars; and (3) forward contracts used to hedge forecasted intercompany revenue transactions related to merchandise sold from our regional purchasing entity, whose functional currency is the U.S. dollar, to certain international subsidiaries in their local currencies. The foreign exchange forward contracts entered into to hedge forecasted merchandise purchases and related costs, intercompany royalty payments, and intercompany revenue transactions generally have terms of up to 24 months. The effective portion of the gain or loss on the derivative financial instruments is reported as a component of other comprehensive income and is recognized into income during the period in which the underlying transaction impacts the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income.

Net Investment Hedges
We may also use foreign exchange forward contracts to hedge the net assets of international subsidiaries to offset the foreign currency translation and economic exposures related to our investment in these subsidiaries.


10



Other Derivatives Not Designated as Hedging Instruments
We use foreign exchange forward contracts to hedge our market risk exposure associated with foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations for certain intercompany balances denominated in currencies other than the functional currency of the entity with the intercompany balance. The gain or loss on the derivative financial instruments that represent economic hedges, as well as the remeasurement impact of the underlying intercompany balances, is recorded in operating expenses on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income in the same period and generally offset.

All of the unrealized gains and losses from designated cash flow hedges as of May 4, 2019, will be recognized into income within the next 12 months at the then-current values, which may differ from the fair values as of May 4, 2019, shown above.
Our foreign exchange forward contracts are subject to master netting arrangements with each of our counterparties and such arrangements are enforceable in the event of default or early termination of the contract. We do not elect to offset the fair values of our derivative financial instruments on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets, and as such, the fair values shown above represent gross amounts. The amounts subject to enforceable master netting arrangements were $2 million, $4 million, and $8 million as of May 4, 2019February 2, 2019, and May 5, 2018, respectively. If we did elect to offset, the net amounts of our derivative financial instruments in an asset position would have been $25 million, $16 million, and $18 million and the net amounts of the derivative financial instruments in a liability position would have been $4 million, $7 million, and $7 million as of May 4, 2019, February 2, 2019, and May 5, 2018, respectively.
See Note 4 of Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for disclosures on the fair value measurements of our derivative financial instruments.

Note 9. Leases
The Company is a party to many agreements involving commitments to make payments to third parties. The majority of our long-term contractual obligations relate to operating leases for our retail stores. We also lease some of our corporate facilities and distribution centers. These operating leases expire at various dates through fiscal 2040. Most store leases have a five-year base period and include options that allow us to extend the lease term beyond the initial base period, subject to terms agreed upon at lease inception. Some leases also include early termination options, which can be exercised under specific conditions. Our lease agreements do not contain any material residual value guarantees or material restrictive covenants.


13



We record our lease liabilities at the present value of the lease payments not yet paid, discounted at the rate of interest that the Company would have to pay to borrow on a collateralized basis over a similar term. As the Company's leases do not provide an implicit rate, the Company uses an incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments. We recognize operating lease cost over the estimated term of the lease, which includes options to extend lease terms that are reasonably certain of being exercised, starting when possession of the property is taken from the landlord, which normally includes a construction period prior to the store opening. When a lease contains a predetermined fixed escalation of the minimum rent, we recognize the related operating lease cost on a straight-line basis over the lease term. In addition, certain of our lease agreements include variable lease payments, such as payments based on a percentage of sales that are in excess of a predetermined level and/or increases based on a change in the consumer price index or fair market value. These variable lease payments are excluded from minimum lease payments and are included in the determination of lease cost when it is probable that the expense has been incurred and the amount can be reasonably estimated.
As of May 4, 2019, the Company's finance leases were not material to our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

Net lease cost recognized on our Condensed Consolidated Statement of Income is summarized as follows:

During the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019, additions of operating lease assets were $166 million. As of May 4, 2019, the minimum lease commitment amount for operating leases signed but not yet commenced, primarily for retail stores, was $274 million

As of May 4, 2019, the weighted-average remaining operating lease term was 8.6 years and the weighted-average discount rate was 4.7 percent for operating leases recognized on our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

In addition, the total minimum lease commitment amount above excludes options to extend lease terms that are reasonably certain of being exercised.
Note 10. Income Taxes
The Company conducts business globally, and as a result, files income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction and various state and foreign jurisdictions. In the normal course of business, we are subject to examination by taxing authorities throughout the world, including such major jurisdictions as the United States, Canada, France, the United Kingdom, China, Hong Kong, Japan, and India. We are no longer subject to U.S. federal income tax examinations for fiscal years before 2009, and with few exceptions, we are also no longer subject to U.S. state, local, or non-U.S. income tax examinations for fiscal years before 2008.
The Company is in continual discussions with taxing authorities regarding tax matters in the various U.S. and foreign jurisdictions in the normal course of business. As of May 4, 2019, it is reasonably possible that we will recognize a decrease in gross unrecognized tax benefits within the next 12 months of up to $1 million, primarily due to the closing of audits. If we do recognize such a decrease in gross unrecognized tax benefits, the net impact on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income would not be material.
Note 11. Earnings Per Share
Weighted-average number of shares used for earnings per share is as follows:

The above computations of weighted-average number of shares – diluted exclude 11 million and 5 million shares related to stock options and other stock awards for the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018, respectively, as their inclusion would have an anti-dilutive effect on earnings per share.
Note 12. Commitments and Contingencies
We are a party to a variety of contractual agreements under which we may be obligated to indemnify the other party for certain matters. These contracts primarily relate to our commercial contracts, operating leases, trademarks, intellectual property, financial agreements, and various other agreements. Under these contracts, we may provide certain routine indemnifications relating to representations and warranties (e.g., ownership of assets, environmental or tax indemnifications), or personal injury matters. The terms of these indemnifications range in duration and may not be explicitly defined. Generally, the maximum obligation under such indemnifications is not explicitly stated, and as a result, the overall amount of these obligations cannot be reasonably estimated. Historically, we have not made significant payments for these indemnifications. We believe that if we were to incur a loss in any of these matters, the loss would not have a material effect on our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements taken as a whole.

15



As a multinational company, we are subject to various proceedings, lawsuits, disputes, and claims (“Actions”) arising in the ordinary course of our business. Many of these Actions raise complex factual and legal issues and are subject to uncertainties. As of May 4, 2019, Actions filed against us included commercial, intellectual property, customer, and employment claims, including class action lawsuits. The plaintiffs in some Actions seek unspecified damages or injunctive relief, or both. Actions are in various procedural stages and some are covered in part by insurance. As of May 4, 2019February 2, 2019, and May 5, 2018, we recorded a liability for an estimated loss if the outcome of an Action is expected to result in a loss that is considered probable and reasonably estimable. The liability recorded as of May 4, 2019February 2, 2019, and May 5, 2018, was not material for any individual Action or in total. Subsequent to May 4, 2019, and through the filing date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, no information has become available that indicates a change is required that would be material to our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements taken as a whole.
We cannot predict with assurance the outcome of Actions brought against us. Accordingly, developments, settlements, or resolutions may occur and impact income in the quarter of such development, settlement, or resolution. However, we do not believe that the outcome of any current Action would have a material effect on our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements taken as a whole.
Note 13. Segment Information
We identify our operating segments according to how our business activities are managed and evaluated. As of May 4, 2019, our operating segments included Old Navy Global, Gap Global, Banana Republic Global, Athleta, and Intermix. Each operating segment has a brand president who is responsible for various geographies and channels. Each of our brands serves customers through its store and online channels, allowing us to execute on our omni-channel strategy where customers can shop seamlessly across all of our brands in retail stores and online through desktop or mobile devices. We have determined that each of our operating segments share similar economic and other qualitative characteristics, and therefore the results of our operating segments were aggregated into one reportable segment as of May 4, 2019. We continually monitor and review our segment reporting structure in accordance with authoritative guidance to determine whether any changes have occurred that would impact our reportable segments.

Note 14. Acquisition
On March 4, 2019, the Company acquired select assets of Gymboree, Inc. related to Janie and Jack, a premium children's clothing brand, through a bankruptcy auction. We purchased intellectual property and property and equipment at the Janie and Jack store locations. We assumed the leases for the majority of Janie and Jack stores and entered into a separate transaction to purchase Janie and Jack inventory.

The purchase price for the net assets acquired was $69 million. The total purchase price was allocated to the net tangible and intangible assets acquired based on their estimated fair values. Such estimated fair values require management to make estimates and judgments, especially with respect to intangible assets.

Amounts recorded for assets acquired and liabilities assumed on the acquisition date were as follows:

Item 2.
Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.
OUR BUSINESS
We are a global omni-channel retailer offering apparel, accessories, and personal care products for men, women, and children under the Old Navy, Gap, Banana Republic, Athleta, Intermix, Janie and Jack, and Hill City brands. We have Company-operated stores in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Ireland, Japan, Italy, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Mexico. We have franchise agreements with unaffiliated franchisees to operate Gap, Banana Republic, and Old Navy stores throughout Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa. Under these agreements, third parties operate, or will operate, stores that sell apparel and related products under our brand names. Our products are also available to customers online through Company-owned websites and through the use of third parties that provide logistics and fulfillment services. In addition to operating in the specialty, outlet, online, and franchise channels, we also use our omni-channel capabilities to bridge the digital world and physical stores to further enhance our shopping experience for our customers. Our omni-channel services, including order-in-store, reserve-in-store, find-in-store, ship-from-store, and buy online pick-up in store, as well as enhanced mobile experiences, are tailored uniquely across our portfolio of brands. Most of the products sold under our brand names are designed by us and manufactured by independent sources. We also sell products that are designed and manufactured by branded third parties, primarily at our Intermix brand.
OVERVIEW
During the first quarter of fiscal 2019, we adopted the new lease accounting standard, ASC 842, using the optional transition method and recorded a decrease to opening retained earnings of $86 million, net of tax. The adoption of ASC 842 resulted in the recording of operating lease assets and operating lease liabilities of $5.7 billion and $6.6 billion, respectively, as of February 3, 2019. The adoption of ASC 842 did not have a material impact to our Condensed Consolidated Statement of Income or Condensed Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows.
On February 28, 2019, the Company announced that its Board of Directors approved a plan to separate the Company into two independent publicly-traded companies: Old Navy and a yet-to-be-named company (“NewCo”), which will consist of Gap brand, Athleta, Banana Republic, Intermix, Janie and Jack, and Hill City. The separation is intended to enable both companies to capitalize on their respective opportunities in an evolving retail environment by creating distinct financial profiles, tailored operating priorities and unique capital allocation strategies. Both companies will be positioned to create value for customers, shareholders and employees with enhanced focus and flexibility, aligned investments and incentives to meet the unique strategic goals, and optimized cost structures to deliver growth. The transaction is targeted to be completed in 2020 and is subject to certain conditions, including final approval by the Company’s Board of Directors, receipt of a tax opinion from counsel, and the filing and effectiveness of a registration statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. For the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019, we incurred $4 million of pre-tax separation-related costs.
In addition, on February 28, 2019, the Company announced plans to restructure the specialty fleet and revitalize the Gap brand, including closing about 230 Gap specialty stores during fiscal 2019 and fiscal 2020. The Company believes these actions will drive a healthier specialty fleet and will serve as a more appropriate foundation for brand revitalization. During the two-year period, the Company estimates pre-tax costs associated with these closure actions to be about $250 million to $300 million, with the majority expected to be cash expenditures for lease-related costs. The remaining charges are expected to primarily include employee-related costs and the net impact of write-offs related to long-term assets and liabilities. The Company estimates an annualized sales loss of approximately $625 million as a result of these store closures, with resulting annualized pre-tax savings of about $90 million. For the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019, we incurred $1 million of pre-tax costs related to these measures.
During the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019, the Company purchased a building for $343 million. In addition, as part of a related tax exchange, during the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019 the Company also sold a building for $220 million, which resulted in a pre-tax gain on sale of $191 million.
During the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019, the Company acquired select assets of Gymboree, Inc. related to Janie and Jack, a premium children's clothing brand, through a bankruptcy auction. We purchased intellectual property and property and equipment at the Janie and Jack store locations. We assumed the leases for the majority of Janie and Jack stores and entered into a separate transaction to purchase Janie and Jack inventory. The purchase price for the net assets acquired was $69 million.
Financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 are as follows:
Net sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 decreased 2 percent compared with the first quarter of fiscal 2018.
Comparable sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 decreased 4 percent compared with a 1 percent increase for the first quarter of fiscal 2018.
Gross profit for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 was $1.34 billion compared with $1.43 billion for the first quarter of fiscal 2018. Gross margin for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 was 36.3 percent compared with 37.7 percent for the first quarter of fiscal 2018.

18



Operating margin for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 was 8.5 percent compared with 6.1 percent for the first quarter of fiscal 2018. Fiscal 2019 includes a positive impact from the gain on the sale of a building of approximately 5 percentage points.
Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 was $227 million compared with $164 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2018.
Diluted earnings per share were $0.60 for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 compared with $0.42 for the first quarter of fiscal 2018. Fiscal 2019 includes about a $0.37 positive impact from the gain on the sale of a building.
During the first quarter of fiscal 2019, we paid dividends of $92 million.
During the first quarter of fiscal 2019, share repurchases were $50 million.
Our business priorities for fiscal 2019 are as follows:
offering product that is consistently brand-appropriate and on-trend with high customer acceptance, with a focus on expanding our advantage in core businesses and loyalty categories, with leading customer-focused product innovation;
preparing for successful separation;
restructuring the Gap brand specialty fleet globally to create a healthier, more profitable base from which to grow;
investing in digital and customer capabilities as well as store experience to create a unique and differentiated converged retail experience that attracts new customers, retains existing customers, and builds loyalty;
increasing productivity by leveraging our scale and streamlining operations and processes throughout the organization;
attracting and retaining strong talent in our businesses and functions; and
continuing to integrate social and environmental sustainability into business practices to support long term growth.
In fiscal 2019, while we work through the plan for separation, we remain focused on investing strategically in the business while maintaining operating expense discipline and driving efficiency through our productivity initiative. One of our primary objectives is to continue transforming our product to market process, with the development of a more efficient operating model. Furthermore, we expect to continue our investment in customer experience, both in stores and online, to drive higher customer engagement and loyalty across all of our brands and channels, resulting in market share gains. Finally, we will continue to invest in strengthening brand awareness, customer acquisition, and digital capabilities. Underpinning these strategies is a focus on utilizing data, analytics, and technology to respond faster while making decisions that will fuel market share gains and lead to a more nimble organization. The current retail environment is quite challenging, but we remain committed to our long-term strategic priorities.

Comp Sales include merchandise sales in Company-operated stores and merchandise sales through online channels in those countries where we have existing comparable store sales. The calculation of The Gap, Inc. Comp Sales includes the results of Athleta and Intermix, but excludes the results of our franchise business and Janie and Jack.
A store is included in the Comp Sales calculations when it has been open and operated by the Company for at least one year and the selling square footage has not changed by 15 percent or more within the past year. A store is included in the Comp Sales calculations on the first day it has comparable prior year sales. Stores in which the selling square footage has changed by 15 percent or more as a result of a remodel, expansion, or reduction are excluded from the Comp Sales calculations until the first day they have comparable prior year sales.

19



A store is considered non-comparable (“Non-comp”) when it has been open and operated by the Company for less than one year or has changed its selling square footage by 15 percent or more within the past year.
A store is considered “Closed” if it is temporarily closed for three or more full consecutive days or it is permanently closed. When a temporarily closed store reopens, the store will be placed in the Comp/Non-comp status it was in prior to its closure. If a store was in Closed status for three or more days in the prior year, the store will be in Non-comp status for the same days the following year.
Current year foreign exchange rates are applied to both current year and prior year Comp Sales to achieve a consistent basis for comparison.

Net Sales
Our net sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 decreased $77 million, or 2 percent, compared with the first quarter of fiscal 2018 primarily driven by a decrease in net sales at Gap Global, partially offset by an increase in net sales at Old Navy Global. The translation of net sales in foreign currencies to U.S. dollars had an unfavorable impact of $34 million and is calculated by translating net sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 at exchange rates applicable during the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

The remaining increase in operating expenses for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 compared with the respective period of 2018 was primarily due to the following:
higher information technology costs, operating expenses related to Janie and Jack, and higher store payroll at Old Navy Global; partially offset by
a decrease in advertising expense, primarily for Gap Global and Old Navy Global, and lower store payroll at Gap Global.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
Our largest source of cash flows is cash collections from the sale of our merchandise. Our primary uses of cash include merchandise inventory purchases, occupancy costs, personnel-related expenses, purchases of property and equipment, and payment of taxes. In addition, we may have dividend payments, debt repayments, and share repurchases. As of May 4, 2019, cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments were $1.2 billion, the majority of which was held in the United States and is generally accessible without any limitations.
We believe that current cash balances and cash flows from our operations will be sufficient to support our business operations, including growth initiatives, Gap brand specialty fleet restructuring costs, and planned capital expenditures, for the next 12 months and beyond. We are also able to supplement near-term liquidity, if necessary, with our $500 million revolving credit facility or other available market instruments.

Cash Flows from Operating Activities
Net cash provided by operating activities increased $95 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2019 compared with the first quarter of fiscal 2018, primarily due to the following:
an increase of $195 million primarily due to a lower bonus payout in fiscal 2019 compared with the bonus payout in fiscal 2018, which impacts accrued expenses and other current liabilities; partially offset by
lower net income, after excluding the $191 million gain on the sale of a building, during the first quarter of fiscal 2019.
We fund inventory expenditures during normal and peak periods through cash flows from operating activities and available cash. Our business follows a seasonal pattern, with sales peaking during the end-of-year holiday period. The seasonality of our operations may lead to significant fluctuations in certain asset and liability accounts between fiscal year-end and subsequent interim periods.

Cash Flows from Investing Activities
Net cash used for investing activities during the first quarter of fiscal 2019 increased $31 million compared with the first quarter of fiscal 2018, primarily due to the following:
$343 million purchase of a building during the first quarter of fiscal 2019; and
$69 million purchase of Janie and Jack during the first quarter of fiscal 2019; partially offset by
$220 million of proceeds received for the sale of a building during the first quarter of fiscal 2019; and
$181 million fewer net purchases of available-for-sale debt securities during the first quarter of fiscal 2019 compared with the first quarter of fiscal 2018.

Cash Flows from Financing Activities
Net cash used for financing activities during the first quarter of fiscal 2019 decreased $42 million compared with the first quarter of fiscal 2018, primarily due to fewer repurchases of common stock.

Free Cash Flow
Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure. We believe free cash flow is an important metric because it represents a measure of how much cash a company has available for discretionary and non-discretionary items after the deduction of capital expenditures as we require regular capital expenditures to build and maintain stores and purchase new equipment to improve our business. We use this metric internally, as we believe our sustained ability to generate free cash flow is an important driver of value creation. However, this non-GAAP financial measure is not intended to supersede or replace our GAAP results.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION
Item 1.
Legal Proceedings.
As a multinational company, we are subject to various proceedings, lawsuits, disputes, and claims arising in the ordinary course of our business. Many of these Actions raise complex factual and legal issues and are subject to uncertainties. Actions filed against us from time to time include commercial, intellectual property, customer, and employment claims, including class action lawsuits. The plaintiffs in some Actions seek unspecified damages or injunctive relief, or both. Actions are in various procedural stages, and some are covered in part by insurance.
We cannot predict with assurance the outcome of Actions brought against us. Accordingly, developments, settlements, or resolutions may occur and impact income in the quarter of such development, settlement, or resolution. However, we do not believe that the outcome of any current Action would have a material effect on our financial results.
