Net Investment Hedges
We 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 the subsidiaries. For derivative instruments that are designated and qualify as net investment hedges, the effective portion of the gain or loss on the derivative instruments is reported as a component of OCI and reclassified into earnings in the same period or periods during which the hedged subsidiary is either sold or liquidated (or substantially liquidated). Gains and losses on the derivative instruments representing either hedge ineffectiveness or hedge components excluded from the assessment of effectiveness, if any, are recognized in current earnings. During the thirteen weeks ended May 2, 2009, there were no amounts recorded as a result of hedge ineffectiveness, hedge components excluded from the assessment of effectiveness, or the discontinuance of net investment hedges.
As of May 2, 2009 we had foreign exchange forward contracts outstanding to hedge the net assets of our Japanese subsidiary and Canadian subsidiaries in the notional amount of 2 billion Japanese yen and 19 million Canadian dollars, respectively.
