Net earnings during the third quarter of fiscal 2012 were $0.4 million ($0.08 per diluted share) compared with $2.5 million ($0.50 per diluted share) during the third quarter last year. For the year-to-date period, net earnings were $6.1 million ($1.27 per diluted share) compared with net earnings of $7.8 million ($1.59 per diluted share) for the same period last year.

One of the warmest winters on record significantly impacted winter-related merchandise such as outerwear, gloves and scarves. However, sales of non-winter related accessories, such as handbags, wallets, briefcases and other accessories, continued to perform well, increasing by 3% during the third quarter of fiscal 2012 and increasing by 13% for the year-to-date period, in each case, compared to the respective periods last year. During fiscal 2012, Danier has placed more emphasis on growing the higher margin accessory category. During the third quarter of fiscal 2012, the accessory category represented 27% of total sales compared with 23% during the third quarter last year. For the 39 weeks ended March 24, 2012, accessories represented 31% of total sales compared with 27% during the corresponding period last year.

As a result of the record setting warmer weather, total Company sales during the third quarter of fiscal 2012 decreased by 15% to $39.1 million, compared with $46.0 million during the third quarter last year. Year-to-date sales decreased by 8% to $120.7 million compared with $130.9 million for the corresponding period last year. Comparable store sales(2) decreased by 16% during the third quarter of fiscal 2012 and decreased by 8% for the first nine months of fiscal 2012, compared to the respective periods last year.

Gross profit as a percentage of revenue during the third quarter of fiscal 2012 decreased by 240 basis points to 48.0% compared with 50.4% during the third quarter last year. Gross profit margin during the first nine months of fiscal 2012 decreased by 190 basis points to 52.7% compared with 54.6% during the first nine months of last year.

Selling, general and administrative expenses during the third quarter of fiscal 2012 decreased by $1.4 million, or 7%, to $18.2 million compared with $19.6 million during the third quarter last year. Year-to-date selling, general and administrative expenses decreased by $5.0 million, or 8%, to $55.2 million, compared with $60.2 million during the corresponding period last year.

Danier continues to maintain a strong balance sheet with cash and cash equivalents of $34.6 million compared with $30.9 million at the end of the third quarter last year. In addition, at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2012, Danier had working capital of $51.5 million, no long-term debt and a book value of $14.58 per outstanding share.

For the 2012 fiscal year, Danier began reporting its financial results in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"), including comparative information. Previously reported financial results prepared in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles have been restated to conform to the new standards adopted. See Note 21 accompanying Danier's third quarter 2012 unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements for further information on the transition to IFRS and its impact on Danier's financial position, financial performance and cash flows.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures

The Company prepares its consolidated financial statements in accordance with IFRS. In order to provide additional insight into the business, the Company has also provided non-IFRS data, including EBITDA and comparable store sales, each as defined below. Non-IFRS measures such as EBITDA and comparable store sales are not recognized measures for financial presentation under IFRS. These non-IFRS measures do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and, therefore, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other publicly traded companies, nor should they be construed as an alternative to other financial measures determined in accordance with IFRS.

(1) EBITDA is defined as net earnings before interest expense, interest income, income taxes, impairment loss on property and equipment and amortization. EBITDA is a financial metric used by management and some investors to compare companies on the basis of ongoing operating results before taxes, interest expense, interest income, impairment loss on property and equipment and amortization and its ability to incur and service debt. EBITDA is also used by management to measure performance against internal targets and prior period results. EBITDA is calculated as outlined in the following table:

Impairment loss on property and equipment 45 63 66 98
Amortization 931 1,063 2,715 3,063
EBITDA $ 1,530 $ 4,767 $ 11,215 $ 14,376
(2) Comparable store sales are defined as sales generated by stores that have been open during the full current fiscal year as well as the full prior fiscal year. Comparable store sales is a key indicator used by the Company to measure performance against internal targets and prior period results and excludes sales fluctuations due to new stores, store closings and certain permanent store relocations. This measure is also commonly used by financial analysts and investors to compare Danier to other retailers.

DANIER LEATHER INC.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
For the 13 week and 39 week periods ended March 24, 2012 and March 26, 2011
(unless otherwise stated, all amounts are in thousands of Canadian dollars) - unaudited

1. General Information:

Danier Leather Inc. and its subsidiaries ("Danier" or the "Company") comprise a vertically integrated designer, manufacturer, distributor and retailer of leather apparel and accessories. Danier Leather Inc. is a corporation existing under the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) and is domiciled in Canada. The Company's subordinate voting shares (the "Subordinate Voting Shares") are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX:DL). The address of its registered head office is 2650 St. Clair Avenue West, Toronto, Ontario, M6N 1M2, Canada.

2. Significant Accounting Policies:

(a) Statement of Compliance

These unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements ("interim consolidated financial statements") have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") applicable to the preparation of interim financial statements, including International Accounting Standard ("IAS") 34, "Interim Financial Reporting" and by IFRS 1, "First-time Adoption of IFRS" ("IFRS 1"), as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB").

The policies applied in these interim consolidated financial statements are based on IFRS standards issued and outstanding as of April 26, 2012, the date the interim consolidated financial statements were approved and authorized for issuance by the Company's Board of Directors. Any subsequent changes to IFRS that are given effect to in the Company's annual consolidated financial statements for the financial year ending June 30, 2012 could result in restatement of these interim consolidated financial statements, including transition adjustments recognized on change-over to IFRS.

The interim consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company's annual financial statements for the year ended June 25, 2011 prepared in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles ("Canadian GAAP"). In addition, for supplemental annual disclosures, see note 21 and note 22 of the Company's 2012 first quarter unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes ("Q1 2012 interim consolidated financial statements"). An explanation of how the transition from Canadian GAAP to IFRS as at June 27, 2010 (the "Transition Date") has affected the reported financial position, financial performance and cash flows of the Company, including mandatory exceptions and optional exemptions under IFRS 1, is provided in the Q1 2012 interim consolidated financial statements.

(b) Basis of Presentation

These interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a historical cost basis, except for the following items which are measured at fair value:

  • Financial instruments at fair value through profit and loss; and
  • Liabilities for cash-settled share-based payment plans.

The significant accounting policies as disclosed in note 3 of the Company's Q1 2012 interim consolidated financial statements have been applied consistently in the preparation of these interim consolidated financial statements.

(c) Functional and presentation currency

These interim consolidated financial statements are presented in Canadian dollars ("C$"), the Company's functional currency. All financial information is presented in thousands, except per share amounts, which are presented in whole dollars, and number of shares, which are presented as whole numbers.

(d) Use of Estimates and Judgments

The preparation of these interim consolidated financial statements in accordance with IFRS requires management to make certain judgments, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of accounting policies and the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent liabilities at the date of the interim consolidated financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the period.

Judgment is commonly used in determining whether a balance or transaction should be recognized in the interim consolidated financial statements, and estimates and assumptions are more commonly used in determining the measurement of recognized transactions and balances. However, judgments and estimates are often interrelated.

Management has applied its judgment in its assessment of the classification of leases and financial instruments, the recognition of tax provisions, determining the tax rates used for measuring deferred taxes, and identifying the indicators of impairment of property and equipment and computer software.

Estimates are used when estimating the useful lives of property and equipment and computer software for the purposes of depreciation and amortization, when accounting for or measuring items such as inventory provisions, gift card breakage, assumptions underlying income taxes, sales and use taxes and sales return provisions, certain fair value measures including those related to the valuation of share-based payments and financial instruments and when testing assets for impairment. These estimations depend upon subjective and complex judgments about matters that may be uncertain, and changes in those estimates could materially impact the interim consolidated financial statements. Illiquid credit markets, volatile equity, foreign currency and energy markets and declines in consumer spending have combined to increase the uncertainty inherent in such estimates and assumptions. As future events and their effects cannot be determined with precision, actual results may differ significantly from such estimates and assumptions.

Estimates and underlying assumptions are reviewed on an ongoing basis. Revisions to accounting estimates are recognized in the period in which the estimates are revised and in any future periods affected.

3. Future Accounting Standards:

A number of new standards, amendments to standards and interpretations have been issued but are not yet effective for the financial year ending June 30, 2012, and accordingly, have not been applied in preparing these interim consolidated financial statements:

(a) IFRS 7: Financial Instruments - Disclosures

The IASB has issued an amendment to IFRS 7, "Financial Instruments: Disclosures", requiring incremental disclosures regarding transfers of financial assets. This amendment is effective for annual periods beginning on or after July 1, 2011. The Company will apply the amendment for its fiscal year beginning July 1, 2012 and does not expect the implementation to have a significant impact on the Company's disclosures.

The IASB has issued two further amendments to IFRS 7 related to enhanced disclosure requirements for offsetting of financial assets and liabilities and additional disclosures on transition from IAS 39 to IFRS 9 (as discussed below). The amendment related to offsetting of financial assets and liabilities is effective for annual periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013 and the amendment related to additional disclosures on transition from IAS 39 to IFRS 9 is effective for annual periods beginning on or after January 1, 2015. The Company has yet to assess the impact of these further amendments on its consolidated financial statements.

(b) IFRS 9: Financial Instruments

The IASB has issued a new standard, IFRS 9, "Financial Instruments" ("IFRS 9"), which will ultimately replace IAS 39, "Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement" ("IAS 39"). The replacement of IAS 39 is a multi-phase project with the objective of improving and simplifying the reporting for financial instruments and the issuance of IFRS 9 is a part of the first phase. This standard originally was to become effective on January 1, 2013 but the mandatory effective date has been amended to January 1, 2015. The Company has yet to assess the impact of the new standard on its statements of financial position, earnings and disclosures.

(c) IFRS 13: Fair Value Measurement

The IASB has issued a new standard, IFRS 13, "Fair Value Measurement" ("IFRS 13"), which is a comprehensive standard for fair value measurement and disclosure requirements for use across all IFRS standards. The new standard is effective for annual periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013 and clarifies that fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset, or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants, at the measurement date. It also establishes disclosures about fair value measurement. Under existing IFRS, guidance on measuring and disclosing fair value is dispersed among the specific standards requiring fair value measurements and, in many cases, does not reflect a clear measurement basis or consistent disclosures. The Company does not believe that this new standard will have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

(d) IAS 32: Financial Instruments - Presentation

The IASB has issued an amendment to standard IAS 32, "Financial Instruments - Presentation" ("IAS 32"). The amendment is effective for annual periods beginning on or after January 1, 2014 and clarifies the requirements for offsetting financial assets and financial liabilities. The Company has yet to assess the impact of this amendment on its consolidated financial statements.

(e) Other Standards

On May 12, 2011, the IASB issued a package of five new standards, all of which are effective for annual periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013. Early adoption is permitted but IFRS 10, IFRS 11 and IFRS 12 (all discussed below) must all be adopted at the same time. The Company has yet to fully assess the impact of the new standards and amendments on its consolidated financial statements. The following is a list of these new standards and amendments.

  • IFRS 10, "Consolidated Financial Statements" ("IFRS 10") - This standard replaces the portions of IAS 27, "Consolidated and Separate Financial Statements" that pertain to consolidated reporting and also SIC-12, "Consolidation - Special Purpose Entities". This new standard establishes standards for the presentation and preparation of consolidated financial statements when an entity controls one or more entities. IFRS 10 establishes a single control model that applies to all entities.
  • IFRS 11, "Joint Arrangement" ("IFRS 11") - This standard replaces IAS 31, "Interests in Joint Ventures" and SIC-13, "Jointly-controlled Entities - Non-Monetary Contributions by Venturers", and requires that a party in a joint arrangement assess its rights and obligations to determine the type of joint arrangement and account for those rights and obligations accordingly. IFRS 11 removes the option to account for jointly controlled entities using proportionate consolidation. Instead, jointly controlled entities that meet the definition of a joint venture must be accounted for using the equity method.
  • IFRS 12, "Disclosure of Interests in Other Entities" ("IFRS 12") - This standard supplements existing disclosure requirements about interests in subsidiaries, joint arrangements, associates and unconsolidated structured entities. It focuses on the nature of, and risk associated with, such interests in other entities and the effects of such interests on its statements of financial position, earnings (loss) and cash flows.
  • IAS 27, "Separate Financial Statements" and IAS 28 "Investments in Associates and Joint Venturers" are both being amended as a direct consequence of the above new standards and deal with accounting in separate, or unconsolidated, financial statements, as well as the mechanics of equity accounting for joint ventures.

4. Seasonality of retail operations:

Due to the seasonal nature of the retail business and the Company's product lines, the results of operation for any interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations to be expected for the fiscal year. Generally, a significant portion of the Company's sales and earnings are typically generated during the second fiscal quarter, which includes the holiday selling season. Sales are usually lowest and losses are typically experienced during the period from April to September.

5. Cash and cash equivalents:

The components of cash and cash equivalents are as follows:
