ITEM 7.01   Regulation FD Disclosure

 

On November 5, 2010, Carphone Warehouse Group plc (“CPW”) released its interim results for the first 26 weeks of fiscal 2011. In the news release, CPW reported its financial headlines, outlook and summary financial performance, which included financial results of Best Buy Europe, a venture between Best Buy Co., Inc. (“Best Buy” or the “registrant”) and CPW, which is owned 50% by the registrant.  Figures for Best Buy Europe are presented by CPW in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards and do not reflect accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”) or include purchase accounting applied by the registrant. As such, the figures presented by CPW for Best Buy Europe do not necessarily reflect the results that will be reported by the registrant in its consolidated statements of earnings. The registrant will report the results of Best Buy Europe in accordance with US GAAP for the 13 weeks ended October 2, 2010, within its fiscal third quarter results as Best Buy Europe is consolidated on a two-month reporting lag.

 

The news release issued by CPW on November 5, 2010, is furnished as Exhibit No. 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to liability of that Section unless the registrant specifically incorporates it by reference in a document filed under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

 

In addition, on November 5, 2010, representatives of CPW held an investor presentation, which will be webcast to discuss CPW’s interim results, including the results of Best Buy Europe. The registrant is furnishing, as Exhibit 99.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, the slide presentation used for the November 5, 2010, webcast. The slide presentation is furnished pursuant to Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K and shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section, unless the registrant specifically incorporates it by reference in a document filed under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

 

By furnishing the slide presentation, the registrant makes no admission as to the materiality of the information included in the slide presentation. The registrant undertakes no duty or obligation to publicly update or to revise the information included in the slide presentation, although it may do so from time to time as its management believes is warranted. Any such updating may be made through the filing of other reports or documents with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), through news releases or through other public disclosure.

 

Some of the matters discussed in this Current Report on Form 8-K (including Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2) constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the “safe harbor” provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements include statements other than those made solely with respect to historical fact and are based on the intent, belief or current expectations of CPW, the registrant and/or its management.  The registrant’s business and operations are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties that might cause actual results to differ materially from those projected by any forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause such differences include, but are not limited to, those set forth in the slide presentation attached hereto as Exhibit 99.2 and the risk factors set forth in the registrant’s filings with the SEC.
