Thursday, December 08, 2011

Harry Winston Diamond Corporation Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2012 Results17:00 EST Thursday, December 08, 2011TORONTO, Dec. 8, 2011 /CNW/ - Harry Winston Diamond Corporation (TSX: HW, NYSE:HWD) (the "Company") today announced its third quarter Fiscal 2012 results for the period ending October 31, 2011.Robert Gannicott, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer said, "Challenging trading conditions returned to the diamond business internationally in the third quarter. However, this was not the sudden, hard shock of 2008/2009 and, being better equipped to weather a downturn than in 2008/9, we elected not to sell the full rough diamond production into a weak market during the quarter but continued to supply the segments where demand remained resilient. We have now resumed a wider range of rough diamondsales as the market has recovered some poise in the light of continuing good consumer demand. Our luxury brand segment has seen increased unit sales as we continue to broaden the focus of our jewelry and timepieces."Third Quarter Summary:The mining segment reported sales of $36.2 million, a 40% decrease from $60.7 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year.  Rough diamond production (the Company's 40% share) for the calendar quarter increased by 8% to 0.8 million carats compared to 0.7 million carats in the same quarter of the prior year.For the luxury brand segment, sales were $83.5 million compared to $80.2 million in the same quarter of the prior year, an increase of 4% or a decrease of 4% at constant exchange rates.The achieved rough diamond price during the third quarter was $159 per carat from 0.2 million carats sold compared to $95 per carat from 0.6 million carats sold in the comparable quarter of the prior year. The price difference is primarily the result of the stockpiling of some lower priced diamond assortments which currently face competition from the recent sale of stocks of similar quality Zimbabwe diamonds. At October 31, 2011, the Company was holding 1.1 million carats of rough diamond inventory with an estimated value of $123 million at current market prices.Mining segment EBITDA was $16.7 million in the quarter compared to $24.9 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year.  After accounting for the $13.0 million ($8.4 million tax effected) non-cash de-recognition charge related to a backfill plant no longer needed in revised underground mining methods, this segment recorded an operating loss of $3.3 million.  Excluding this charge, the mining segment would have recorded an operating profit of $9.7 million in the third quarter compared to $9.4 million in the same quarter of the prior year.The luxury brand segment generated EBITDA of $4.5 million and an operating profit of $1.3 million in the third quarter 2012 compared to EBITDA of $8.6 million and operating profit of $5.4 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year. The decreased operating profit is a result of the seasonal increased marketing expenditure leading into the holiday season and expenses related to the anticipated opening of new salons in China during early 2012.At October 31, 2011. the Company had $83.2 million of cash and $106.2 million availability in its credit facilities.Fiscal 2012 Third Quarter Financial Summary (US$ in millions except Earnings per Share amounts) (Prepared in accordance with IFRS)  Three months endedOct 31, 2011 Three months endedOct 31, 2010Nine monthsended Oct 31, 2011 Nine monthsended Oct 31, 2010 Sales-     Mining Segment-     Luxury Brand Segment$119.736.283.5$140.960.780.2$486.0187.9298.1$408.6196.5212.1Operating profit (loss)-     Mining Segment-     Luxury Brand Segment(2.0)(3.3)1.314.89.45.425.813.612.247.138.09.1Net profit attributable to shareholders (loss)  (4.7)12.78.927.8Earnings per share (loss)($0.06)$0.15$0.10$0.35Complete financial statements, MD&A and a discussion of risk factors are included in the accompanying release.OutlookDiavik's full-year 2011 target production remains at 6.9 million carats.  The Company expects that the retention of some stockpiled goods will result in carats sold being lower than carats produced for fiscal 2012.Having made very limited sales to specialized clients in October and November, the Company has resumed broader sales in December. The lack of credit available to diamond processors continues to constrain the industry.A new life-of-mine plan is under final review by Rio Tinto plc and the Company, and is expected to be released prior to the 2012 fiscal year-end. Production for calendar 2012 is currently forecasted at approximately 8.3 million carats.For the luxury brand segment, the Company continues to focus on strategies that will drive long-term growth. These strategies include initiatives to grow the core bridal and watch businesses, and new jewelry collections.In addition to the recently opened licensed Harry Winston salon in the Dubai Emirate Towers, a second licensed salon is expected to open in Dubai this fiscal year.  The Company plans to add 10 wholesale watch doors through the remainder of the current fiscal year for a total door count of 200 wholesale timepiece doors.The Company expects to open two directly operated salons in Shanghai at the beginning of the next fiscal year, and also expects to open a second directly operated salon in London next fiscal year.The Company reaffirms the luxury brand's five year vision presented last year, with goals through fiscal 2016 of growing sales at a cumulative annual growth rate in the mid-teens, generating gross margins in the low 50% range, and operating profit margins in the low to mid-teen range.Conference Call and WebcastBeginning at 8:30AM (ET) on Friday, December 9, the Company will host a conference call for analysts, investors and other interested parties.

Consolidated EBITDA was $21.2 million compared to $33.5 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year.The mining segment recorded sales of $36.2 million, a 40% decrease from $60.7 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year. The decrease in sales resulted from a 64% decrease in volume of carats sold, as the Company has chosen to hold inventory due to market conditions, which was partially offset by a 68% increase in achieved rough diamond prices. The mining segment recorded an operating loss of $3.3 million compared to an operating profit of $9.4 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year. Included in the operating loss was an $13.0 million ($8.4 million after tax) non-cash charge related to the de-recognition of certain assets associated with paste production at the Diavik Diamond Mine, which are no longer expected to be required for underground mining. EBITDA for the mining segment was $16.7 million compared to $24.9 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year.The luxury brand segment recorded sales of $83.5 million, an increase of 4% from sales of $80.2 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year (a decrease of 4% at constant exchange rates). Operating profit was $1.3 million for the quarter compared to $5.4 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year. EBITDA for the luxury brand segment was $4.5 million compared to $8.6 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year.The Company recorded a consolidated net loss attributable to shareholders of $4.7 million or $0.06 per share for the quarter, compared to a net profit attributable to shareholders of $12.7 million or $0.15 per share in the third quarter of the prior year.

The Company supplies rough diamonds to the global market from its 40% ownership interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine, located in Canada's Northwest Territories. The Company's luxury brand segment is a premier diamond jeweler and luxury timepiece retailer with salons in key locations including New York, Paris, London, Beijing, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Beverly Hills.The Company's mining asset is an ownership interest in the Diavik group of mineral claims. The Diavik Joint Venture (the "Joint Venture") is an unincorporated joint arrangement between Diavik Diamond Mines Inc. ("DDMI") (60%) and Harry Winston Diamond Limited Partnership ("HWDLP") (40%) where HWDLP holds an undivided 40% ownership interest in the assets, liabilities and expenses of the Diavik Diamond Mine. DDMI is the operator of the Diavik Diamond Mine. DDMI and HWDLP are headquartered in Yellowknife, Canada. DDMI is a wholly owned subsidiary of Rio Tinto plc of London, England.Market CommentaryThe Diamond MarketDuring the third quarter, rough diamond prices dropped from the highs achieved in the second quarter, primarily due to the ongoing European sovereign debt crisis. In addition, a build-up of rough diamond inventories prior to the traditionally quiet religious holiday period in India and Israel enabled buyers to exert downward pressure on polished diamond prices. However, the retail diamond market continued to be resilient, leading to an improvement in both the rough and polished diamond markets at the beginning of the fourth quarter.The Luxury Jewelry & Timepiece MarketThe luxury jewelry and timepiece market experienced moderate growth during the third quarter as demand from emerging markets remained strong, offsetting the effects of economic uncertainty in Europe and the US. With the trend of rapidly rising wealth and increased mobility of Asian clients, these customers represent a growing share of clientele in all sales regions. New wealthy Chinese consumers continue to be attracted to established luxury brands that have a reputation for providing the highest levels of quality and service.Condensed Consolidated Financial ResultsThe following is a summary of the Company's consolidated quarterly results for the eight quarters ended October 31, 2011 following the basis of presentation utilized in its IFRS and Canadian GAAP financial statements:(expressed in thousands of United States dollars except per share amounts and where otherwise noted)(quarterly results are unaudited)            IFRS          CDN GAAP  IFRS  IFRS   2012  2012  2012  2011  2011  2011  2011  2010  NinemonthsendedOctober31,  NinemonthsendedOctober31,   Q3  Q2  Q1  Q4  Q3  Q2  Q1  Q4  2011  2010Sales $119,716 $222,378 $143,932 $215,358 $140,877 $153,728 $114,000 $133,654 $486,026 $408,605Cost of sales  75,524  150,177  96,452  141,391  84,765  85,798  75,711  96,257  322,153  246,274Gross margin  44,192  72,201  47,480  73,967  56,112  67,930  38,289  37,397  163,873  162,331Gross margin (%)  36.9%  32.5%  33.0%  34.3%  39.8%  44.2%  33.6%  28.0%  33.7%  39.7%Selling, general and administrativeexpenses  46,155  49,101  42,795  52,722  41,282  37,998  35,948  40,479  138,051  115,230Operating profit (loss)  (1,963)  23,100  4,685  21,245  14,830  29,932  2,341  (3,082)  25,822  47,101Finance expenses  (4,165)  (5,183)  (3,983)  (3,727)  (3,835)  (2,985)  (2,880)  (2,396)  (13,331)  (9,700)Exploration costs  (600)  (781)  (212)  (351)  (212)  (76)  (27)  -  (1,593)  (313)Finance and other income  289  83  258  278  69  154  168  129  630  391Foreign exchange gain (loss)  436  288  (177)  1,392  135  1,043  (2,213)  (1,978)  547  (1,035)Profit (loss) before income taxes  (6,003)  17,507  571  18,837  10,987  28,068  (2,611)  (7,327)  12,075  36,444Income tax expense (recovery)  (1,272)  7,519  (3,027)  5,261  (2,410)  10,877  (5,524)  (5,800)  3,220  2,943Net profit (loss) $(4,731) $9,988 $3,598 $13,576 $13,397 $17,191 $2,913 $(1,527) $8,855 $33,501Attributable to shareholders $(4,728) $9,986 $3,596 $13,569 $12,657 $13,043 $2,137 $(3,358) $8,854 $27,837Attributable to non-controlling interest  (3)  2  2  7  740  4,148  776  1,831  1  5,664Basic earnings (loss) per share $(0.06) $0.12 $0.04 $0.16 $0.15 $0.17 $0.03 $(0.04) $0.10 $0.35Diluted earnings (loss) per share $(0.06) $0.12 $0.04 $0.16 $0.15 $0.17 $0.03 $(0.04) $0.10 $0.35Cash dividends declared per share $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 $0.00Total assets (i) $1,651 $1,665 $1,666 $1,606 $1,584 $1,596 $1,522 $1,495 $1,651 $1,584Total long-term liabilities (i) $654 $625 $605 $597 $588 $531 $449 $477 $654 $588Operating profit (loss) $(1,963) $23,100 $4,685 $21,245 $14,830 $29,932 $2,341 $(3,082) $25,822 $47,101Depreciation and amortization (ii)  23,121  20,716  20,291  24,635  18,657  19,515  14,200  18,258  64,128  52,372EBITDA (iii)  $21,158 $43,816 $24,976 $45,880 $33,487 $49,447 $16,541 $15,176 $89,950 $99,473(i) Total assets and total long-term liabilities are expressed in millions of United States dollars.(ii) Depreciation and amortization included in cost of sales and selling, general and administrative expenses.(iii) Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"). See "Non-GAAP Measure" on page 17. The comparability of quarter-over-quarter results is impacted by seasonality for both the mining and luxury brand segments. Harry Winston Diamond Corporation expects that the quarterly results for its mining segment will continue to fluctuate depending on the seasonality of production at the Diavik Diamond Mine, the number of sales events conducted during the quarter, and the volume, size and quality distribution of rough diamonds delivered from the Diavik Diamond Mine and sold by the Company in each quarter. The quarterly results for the luxury brand segment are also seasonal, with generally higher sales during the fourth quarter due to the holiday season. See "Segmented Analysis" on page 9 for additional information.Three Months Ended October 31, 2011 Compared to Three Months Ended October 31, 2010CONSOLIDATED NET PROFIT ATTRIBUTABLE TO SHAREHOLDERSThe Company recorded a third quarter consolidated net loss attributable to shareholders of $4.7 million or $0.06 per share compared to a net profit attributable to shareholders of $12.7 million or $0.15 per share in the third quarter of the prior year. Excluding the $8.4 million after-tax de-recognition of certain paste production assets in the mining segment, the Company would have recorded a net profit attributable to shareholders of $3.7 million or $0.04 per share for the quarter.CONSOLIDATED SALESSales for the third quarter totalled $119.7 million, consisting of rough diamond sales of $36.2 million and luxury brand segment sales of $83.5 million. This compares to sales of $140.9 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year (rough diamond sales of $60.7 million and luxury brand segment sales of $80.2 million). See "Segmented Analysis" on page 9 for additional information.CONSOLIDATED COST OF SALES AND GROSS MARGINThe Company's third quarter cost of sales was $75.5 million, for a gross margin of 36.9% compared to a cost of sales of $84.8 million and a gross margin of 39.8% for the comparable quarter of the prior year. The Company's cost of sales includes costs associated with mining, rough diamond sorting and luxury brand sales activities. See "Segmented Analysis" on page 9 for additional information.CONSOLIDATED SELLING, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSESThe principal components of selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses include expenses for salaries and benefits, advertising and marketing, rent and building related costs. The Company incurred SG&A expenses of $46.2 million for the third quarter compared to $41.3 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year.Included in SG&A expenses for the third quarter was $5.4 million for the mining segment compared to $6.2 million for the comparable quarter of the prior year and $40.8 million for the luxury brand segment compared to $35.1 million for the comparable quarter of the prior year. See "Segmented Analysis" on page 9 for additional information. CONSOLIDATED INCOME TAXESThe Company recorded a net income tax recovery of $1.3 million during the third quarter, compared to a net income tax recovery of $2.4 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year. The Company's combined Canadian federal and provincial statutory tax rate for the quarter is 27.9%.  There are a number of items that can significantly impact the Company's effective tax rate, including foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, the Northwest Territories mining royalty, earnings subject to tax different than the statutory rate such as earnings in foreign jurisdictions, and changes in valuation allowances.  As a result, the Company's recorded tax provision can be significantly different than the expected tax provision calculated based on the statutory tax rate.The recorded tax provision is particularly impacted by foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.  The Company's functional and reporting currency is US dollars; however, the calculation of income tax expense is based on income in the currency of the country of origin. As such, the Company is continually subject to foreign exchange fluctuations, particularly as the Canadian dollar moves against the US dollar. During the third quarter, the Canadian dollar weakened against the US dollar. As a result, the Company recorded an unrealized foreign exchange gain of $8.1 million on the revaluation of the Company's Canadian dollar denominated deferred income tax liability. This compares to an unrealized foreign exchange loss of $2.8 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year. The unrealized foreign exchange gain is recorded as part of the Company's deferred income tax recovery, and is not taxable for Canadian income tax purposes. During the third quarter, the Company also recognized a deferred income tax expense of $11.4 million for temporary differences arising from the difference between the historical exchange rate and the current exchange rate on translation of foreign currency non-monetary items.  This compares to a deferred income tax recovery of $8.1 million recognized in the comparable quarter of the prior year.  The recorded tax provision during the third quarter also included a net income tax recovery of $0.7 million relating to foreign exchange differences between income in the currency of the country of origin and the US dollar.  This compares to a net income tax recovery of $1.3 million recognized in the comparable period of the prior year.The Company recorded a net income tax recovery of $2.9 million during the third quarter resulting from adjustments and reassessments to prior year tax returns. This compares to a net income tax recovery of nil recorded in the comparable period of the prior year. A deferred income tax recovery of $4.6 million was also recorded during the third quarter as a result of the de-recognition of certain paste production assets associated with the Diavik Diamond Mine.The rate of income tax payable by Harry Winston Inc. varies by jurisdiction. Net operating losses are available in certain jurisdictions to offset future income taxes payable in such jurisdictions. The net operating losses are scheduled to expire through 2031.Due to the number of factors that can potentially impact the effective tax rate and the sensitivity of the tax provision to these factors, as discussed above, it is expected that the Company's effective tax rate will fluctuate in future periods.CONSOLIDATED FINANCE EXPENSESFinance expenses of $4.2 million were incurred during the third quarter compared to $3.8 million during the comparable quarter of the prior year.CONSOLIDATED EXPLORATION COSTSExploration costs of $0.6 million were incurred during the third quarter compared to $0.2 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year.CONSOLIDATED FINANCE AND OTHER INCOMEFinance and other income of $0.3 million was recorded during the quarter compared to $0.1 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year.CONSOLIDATED FOREIGN EXCHANGEA net foreign exchange gain of $0.4 million was recognized during the quarter compared to a net foreign exchange gain of $0.1 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year. The Company does not currently have any significant foreign exchange derivative instruments outstanding.Nine Months Ended October 31, 2011 Compared to Nine Months Ended October 31, 2010CONSOLIDATED NET PROFIT ATTRIBUTABLE TO SHAREHOLDERSThe Company recorded consolidated net profit attributable to shareholders of $8.9 million or $0.10 per share for the nine months ended October 31, 2011, compared to a net profit attributable to shareholders of $27.8 million or $0.35 per share in the comparable period of the prior year. Excluding the $8.4 million after-tax de-recognition of certain paste production assets in the mining segment, the Company would have recorded a net profit attributable to shareholders of $17.3 million or $0.20 per share for the period.CONSOLIDATED SALESSales for the nine months ended October 31, 2011, totalled $486.0 million, consisting of rough diamond sales of $187.9 million and luxury brand segment sales of $298.1 million. This compares to sales of $408.6 million in the comparable period of the prior year (rough diamond sales of $196.5 million and luxury brand segment sales of $212.1 million). See "Segmented Analysis" on page 9 for additional information.CONSOLIDATED COST OF SALES AND GROSS MARGINThe Company's cost of sales for the nine months ended October 31, 2011, was $322.2 million, for a gross margin of 33.7% compared to a cost of sales of $246.3 million and a gross margin of 39.7% in the comparable period of the prior year. The Company's cost of sales includes costs associated with mining, rough diamond sorting and luxury brand sales activities. See "Segmented Analysis" on page 9 for additional information.CONSOLIDATED SELLING, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSESThe principal components of SG&A expenses include expenses for salaries and benefits, advertising and marketing, rent and building related costs. The Company incurred SG&A expenses of $138.1 million for the nine months ended October 31, 2011, compared to $115.2 million in the comparable period of the prior year.Included in SG&A expenses for the nine months ended October 31, 2011, was $19.1 million for the mining segment compared to $14.9 million for the comparable period of the prior year and $119.0 million for the luxury brand segment compared to $100.3 million for the comparable period of the prior year. See "Segmented Analysis" on page 9 for additional information.CONSOLIDATED INCOME TAXESThe Company recorded a net income tax expense of $3.2 million during the nine months ended October 31, 2011, compared to a net income tax expense of $2.9 million in the comparable period of the prior year. The Company's combined Canadian federal and provincial statutory tax rate for the quarter is 27.9%.  There are a number of items that can significantly impact the Company's effective tax rate, including foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, the Northwest Territories mining royalty, earnings subject to tax different than the statutory rate, such as earnings in foreign jurisdictions, and changes in valuation allowances.  As a result, the Company's recorded tax provision can be significantly different than the expected tax provision calculated based on the statutory tax rate. The recorded tax provision is particularly impacted by foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.  The Company's functional and reporting currency is US dollars; however, the calculation of income tax expense is based on income in the currency of the country of origin. As such, the Company is continually subject to foreign exchange fluctuations, particularly as the Canadian dollar moves against the US dollar. During the nine months ended October 31, 2011, the Canadian dollar strengthened against the US dollar. As a result, the Company recorded an unrealized foreign exchange loss of $1.7 million on the revaluation of the Company's Canadian dollar denominated deferred income tax liability. This compares to an unrealized foreign exchange loss of $9.0 million in the comparable period of the prior year. The unrealized foreign exchange loss is recorded as part of the Company's deferred income tax recovery, and is not deductible for Canadian income tax purposes. During the nine months ended October 31, 2011, the Company also recognized a deferred income tax expense of $2.8 million for temporary differences arising from the difference between the historical exchange rate and the current exchange rate on translation of foreign currency non-monetary items.  This compares to a deferred income tax recovery of $14.7 million recognized in the comparable period of the prior year.  The recorded tax provision during the nine months ended October 31, 2011 also included a net income tax recovery of $3.8 million relating to foreign exchange differences between income in the currency of the country of origin and the US dollar.  This compares to a net income tax recovery of $3.1 million recognized in the comparable period of the prior year. The Company recorded a net income tax recovery of $2.6 million during the third quarter resulting from adjustments and reassessments to prior year tax returns. This compares to a net income tax recovery of 1.7 million recorded in the comparable period of the prior year.The rate of income tax payable by Harry Winston Inc. varies by jurisdiction. Net operating losses are available in certain jurisdictions to offset future income taxes payable in such jurisdictions. The net operating losses are scheduled to expire through 2031.Due to the number of factors that can potentially impact the effective tax rate and the sensitivity of the tax provision to these factors, as discussed above, it is expected that the Company's effective tax rate will fluctuate in future periods.CONSOLIDATED FINANCE EXPENSESFinance expenses of $13.3 million were incurred during the nine months ended October 31, 2011, compared to $9.7 million during the comparable period of the prior year. Finance expenses were impacted by increased debt levels in the mining segment related to the drawdown of $60.0 million on the Standard Chartered Bank credit facility and the $70.0 million promissory note payable to Kinross Gold Corporation ("Kinross") issued on August 25, 2010, which was repaid on August 25, 2011. CONSOLIDATED EXPLORATION COSTSExploration costs of $1.6 million were incurred during the nine months ended October 31, 2011, compared to $0.3 million in the comparable period of the prior year.CONSOLIDATED FINANCE AND OTHER INCOMEFinance and other income of $0.6 million was recorded during the nine months ended October 31, 2011, compared to $0.4 million in the comparable period of the prior year.CONSOLIDATED FOREIGN EXCHANGEA net foreign exchange gain of $0.5 million was recognized during the nine months ended October 31, 2011, compared to a net foreign exchange loss of $1.0 million in the comparable period of the prior year. The Company does not currently have any significant foreign exchange derivative instruments outstanding.Segmented AnalysisThe operating segments of the Company include mining and luxury brand segments.MiningThe mining segment includes the production, sorting and sale of rough diamonds.(expressed in thousands of United States dollars)(quarterly results are unaudited)            IFRS           CDN GAAP  IFRS  IFRS   2012  2012  2012  2011  2011  2011  2011  2010  NinemonthsendedOctober31,  NinemonthsendedOctober31,   Q3  Q2  Q1  Q4  Q3  Q2  Q1  Q4  2011  2010Sales $36,239 $89,608 $62,035 $82,697 $60,708 $86,827 $48,922 $63,489 $187,882 $196,457Cost of sales  34,112  67,613  53,443  61,822  45,039  54,408  44,143  57,027  155,168  143,590Gross margin  2,127  21,995  8,592  20,875  15,669  32,419  4,779  6,462  32,714  52,867Gross margin (%)  5.9%  24.5%  13.9%  25.2%  25.8%  37.3%  9.8%  10.2%  17.4%  26.9%Selling, general and administrativeexpenses  5,390  5,709  8,026  4,828  6,231  4,813  3,870  4,885  19,125  14,915Operating profit (loss) $(3,263) $16,286 $566 $16,047 $9,438 $27,606 $909 $1,577 $13,589 $37,952Depreciation and amortization (i)  19,932  17,461  17,083  20,669  15,428  16,352  10,975  14,976  54,477  42,755EBITDA (ii)  $16,669 $33,747 $17,649 $36,716 $24,866 $43,958 $11,884 $16,553 $68,066 $80,707(i) Depreciation and amortization included in cost of sales and selling, general and administrative expenses.(ii) Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"). See "Non-GAAP Measure" on page 17.Three Months Ended October 31, 2011 Compared to Three Months Ended October 31, 2010MINING SALESDuring the quarter, the Company sold 0.23 million carats for a total of $36.2 million for an average price per carat of $159 compared to 0.64 million carats for a total of $60.7 million for an average price per carat of $95 in the comparable quarter of the prior year. The decrease in sales resulted primarily from a 64% decrease in volume of carats sold as the Company chose to hold inventory due to market conditions. The 68% increase in the Company's achieved rough diamond price per carat was primarily the result of the Company's decision to hold back some lower priced goods due to a current oversupply in the market.On a quarterly basis, the Company expects that results for its mining segment will continue to fluctuate depending on the seasonality of production at the Diavik Diamond Mine, the number of sales events conducted during the quarter, rough diamond prices and the volume, size and quality distribution of rough diamonds delivered from the Diavik Diamond Mine in each quarter.MINING COST OF SALES AND GROSS MARGINThe Company's third quarter cost of sales was $34.1 million, resulting in a gross margin of 5.9% compared to a cost of sales of $45.0 million and a gross margin of 25.8% in the comparable quarter of the prior year. Cost of sales included $19.3 million of depreciation and amortization compared to $14.8 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year. Included in the cost of sales for the third quarter was a non-cash $13.0 million charge related to the de-recognition of certain components of the backfill plant (the "Paste Plant") associated with paste production at the Diavik Diamond Mine. The original mine plan envisioned the use of blasthole stoping and underhand cut and fill underground mining methods for the Diavik ore bodies using paste to preserve underground stability. It is now expected that the higher velocity and lower cost sub-level retreat mining method, which does not require paste, will be used for both the A-154 South and A-418 underground ore bodies. As a result, certain components of the Paste Plant necessary for the production of paste will no longer be required and accordingly have been de-recognized during the third quarter. Excluding this charge, cost of sales would have been $21.1 million (gross margin of 41.8%), a 53% decrease from the comparable quarter of the prior year. The mining gross margin is anticipated to fluctuate between quarters, resulting from variations in the specific mix of product sold during each quarter and rough diamond prices.A substantial portion of cost of sales is mining operating costs, which are incurred at the Diavik Diamond Mine. Cost of sales also includes sorting costs, which consist of the Company's cost of handling and sorting product in preparation for sales to third parties, and amortization and depreciation, the majority of which is recorded using the unit-of-production method over estimated proven and probable reserves.MINING SELLING, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSESSG&A expenses for the mining segment decreased by $0.8 million from the comparable quarter of the prior year primarily due to the incurrence of executive severance charges of $1.0 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year.Nine Months Ended October 31, 2011 Compared to Nine Months Ended October 31, 2010MINING SALESDuring the nine months ended October 31, 2011, the Company sold 1.3 million carats for a total of $187.9 million for an average price per carat of $148 compared to 1.9 million carats for a total of $196.5 million for an average price per carat of $104 in the comparable period of the prior year. The decrease in sales resulted from a 33% decrease in volume of carats sold as the Company chose to hold inventory in the third quarter due to market conditions. This was partially offset by a 42% increase in the Company's achieved rough diamond price per carat, which was the result of the Company's decision to hold back some lower priced goods in the third quarter due to a current oversupply in the market combined with an overall increase in the market price of rough diamonds during the nine months ended October 31, 2011 versus the comparable period of the prior year.The Company expects that results for its mining segment will continue to fluctuate depending on the seasonality of production at the Diavik Diamond Mine, the number of sales events conducted during the quarter, rough diamond prices and the volume, size and quality distribution of rough diamonds delivered from the Diavik Diamond Mine and sold by the Company in each quarter.MINING COST OF SALES AND GROSS MARGINThe Company's cost of sales for the nine months ended October 31, 2011, was $155.2 million, resulting in a gross margin of 17.4% compared to a cost of sales of $143.6 million and a gross margin of 26.9% in the comparable period of the prior year. Cost of sales included $52.6 million of depreciation and amortization compared to $40.9 million in the comparable period of the prior year. The increase in cost of sales was due primarily to a non-cash $13.0 million charge related to the de-recognition of certain components of the Paste Plant. Excluding this charge, cost of sales would have been $142.1 million (gross margin of 24.3%), a 1% decrease from the comparable period of the prior year. This decrease was the result of a 33% decrease in volume of carats sold during the period offset by a higher volume of production during the period from the higher cost underground mine. The mining gross margin is anticipated to fluctuate between quarters, resulting from variations in the specific mix of product sold during each quarter and rough diamond prices.A substantial portion of cost of sales is mining operating costs, which are incurred at the Diavik Diamond Mine. Cost of sales also includes sorting costs, which consist of the Company's cost of handling and sorting product in preparation for sales to third parties, and amortization and depreciation, the majority of which is recorded using the unit-of-production method over estimated proven and probable reserves.MINING SELLING, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSESSG&A expenses for the mining segment increased by $4.2 million from the comparable period of the prior year due to a mark-to-market on stock-based compensation and the strengthening of the Canadian dollar during the period.MINING SEGMENT OPERATIONAL UPDATEOre production for the third calendar quarter consisted of 1.62 million carats produced from 0.55 million tonnes of ore from the A-418 kimberlite pipe, 0.16 million carats produced from 0.07 million tonnes of ore from the A-154 North kimberlite pipe, and 0.08 million carats produced from 0.02 million tonnes of ore from the A-154 South kimberlite pipe. Also included in production for the calendar quarter was an estimated 0.08 million carats from reprocessed plant rejects ("RPR"). These RPR are not included in the Company's reserves and resource statement and are therefore incremental to production. Rough diamond production was 8% higher than the comparable calendar quarter of the prior year due primarily to an increase in ore processed.HARRY WINSTON DIAMOND LIMITED PARTNERSHIP'S 40% SHARE OF DIAVIK DIAMOND MINE PRODUCTION(reported on a one-month lag)                                 Three monthsendedSeptember 30,2011    Three monthsendedSeptember 30,2010    Nine monthsendedSeptember 30,2011    Nine monthsendedSeptember 30,2010Diamonds recovered (000s carats)        773    713    2,030    1,983Grade (carats/tonne)        3.00    2.98    3.03    3.23Mining Segment OutlookPRODUCTIONThe Company continues to expect Diavik Diamond Mine production in calendar 2011 of approximately 6.9 million carats from the mining of 2.4 million tonnes of ore and processing of 2.3 million tonnes of ore, with the increment stockpiled. It is expected that with the accelerated production towards the end of the year, carats shipped will be lower than carats produced in calendar 2011. This difference is expected to reverse in calendar 2012. Production for the year is expected to comprise approximately 1.8 million tonnes from the A-418 open pit, and 0.6 million tonnes from the underground portions of A-154 South and A-154 North. Beginning in July 2011, the higher grade A-154 South has been mined using sub-level retreat, a higher velocity and lower cost underground mining method.A new mine plan and budget for calendar 2012 is under final review by Rio Tinto plc and the Company. The plan for calendar 2012 foresees Diavik Diamond Mine production of approximately 8.3 million carats from the mining of 2.0 million tonnes of ore and processing of 2.2 million tonnes of ore. Open pit mining of approximately 1.0 million tonnes is expected to be exclusively from A-418. Underground mining of approximately 1.0 million tonnes is expected to be primarily sourced equally from the A-154 South and A-154 North kimberlite pipes. Included in the estimated production for calendar 2012 is approximately 1.0 million carats from RPR and 0.1 million carats from the implementation of an improved recovery process for small diamonds. These RPR and small diamond recoveries are not included in the Company's reserves and resource statement and are therefore incremental to production.Looking beyond calendar 2012, the objective is to fully utilize processing capacity with a combination of production from the underground and the A-21 open pit. Multiple mining techniques are under consideration for the A-21 resource with the intention to finalize the investment decision in late calendar 2012. In addition, exploratory drilling has improved the understanding of the ore at depth in the A-418 and A-154 North kimberlite pipes. This work is under technical review and should result in some ore resource being promoted to reserves and the addition of the extensions at depth into ore reserves.PRICINGThe rough diamond market experienced a decline in prices during the third quarter of fiscal 2012 from the highs achieved in the second quarter, which may persist until confidence returns to the global market. Based on prices from the Company's last complete rough diamond sale in July 2011 and the current diamond recovery profile of the Diavik processing plant, the Company has modeled the approximate rough diamond price per carat for each of the Diavik ore types in the table that follows. The Company estimates that with the softening rough diamond market, the current market prices have declined by approximately 25% from the July peak.Ore type                           July 2011average priceper carat(in US dollars)A-154 South                          $200A-154 North                           260A-418 A Type Ore                           185A-418 B Type Ore                           120RPR                           65COST OF SALESThe Company had projected cost of sales in fiscal 2012 of approximately $265 million (including depreciation and amortization of approximately $80 million) at an assumed average Canadian/US dollar exchange rate of $1.00. Due to lower-than-expected mining costs combined with a weaker Canadian/US dollar exchange rate, the Company would expect cost of sales of approximately $260 million (including depreciation and amortization of approximately $85 million) based on normal rough diamond sales. In light of current market conditions, the Company anticipates holding more rough diamond inventory than normal at January 31, 2012. Depending on the amount of rough diamond inventory carried over into fiscal 2013, a portion of the $260 million cost of sales forecasted for fiscal 2012 would be recognized in fiscal 2013.The Company expects cost of sales in fiscal 2013 to be approximately $275 million (including depreciation and amortization of approximately $90 million) due to an expected increase in the proportion of underground ore mined, which is more costly to produce.CAPITAL EXPENDITURESDuring fiscal 2012, HWDLP's 40% share of the planned capital expenditures at the Diavik Diamond Mine is expected to be approximately $58 million at an assumed average Canadian/US dollar exchange rate of $1.00. During the third quarter, HWDLP's share of capital expenditures was $10.4 million. During fiscal 2013, HWDLP's 40% share of the planned capital expenditures is expected to be approximately $64 million at an assumed average Canadian/US dollar exchange rate of $1.00.EXPLORATIONThe Company has additionally staked 226,000 acres of mineral claims on the prospective geological trend to the southwest of the existing mine site and is starting a small but important basal till drilling program to assess the potential for new diamondiferous kimberlite pipes over the coming years. On September 6, 2011, the Company announced that Harry Winston Diamond Mines Ltd. and its wholly owned subsidiary, 6355137 Canada Inc., entered into an option agreement with North Arrow Minerals Inc. ("North Arrow") and Springbok Holdings Inc., ("Springbok") in regards to their Lac de Gras properties in the Northwest Territories. Under the terms of the agreement, the two properties collectively will form a "Joint Venture Property".  In order for the option to vest, the Company is to carry out exploration on the Joint Venture Property, making expenditures of at least $5 million over a five-year period.  Upon vesting, a joint venture will be formed, in which the Company will hold a 55% interest, and in which North Arrow and Springbok will equally share a 45% interest, in the entire Joint Venture Property.Luxury BrandThe luxury brand segment includes sales from Harry Winston salons, which are located in prime markets around the world, including eight salons in the United States: New York, Beverly Hills, Bal Harbour, Honolulu, Las Vegas, Dallas, Chicago and Costa Mesa; five salons in Japan: Ginza, Roppongi Hills, Osaka, Omotesando and Nagoya; two salons in Europe: Paris and London; and four salons in Asia outside of Japan: Beijing, Taipei, Hong Kong and Singapore.(expressed in thousands of United States dollars)(quarterly results are unaudited)            IFRS         CDN GAAP  IFRS  IFRS   2012  2012  2012  2011  2011  2011  2011  2010  NinemonthsendedOctober31,  NinemonthsendedOctober31,   Q3  Q2  Q1  Q4  Q3  Q2  Q1  Q4  2011  2010Sales $83,477 $132,770 $81,897 $132,661 $80,169 $66,901 $65,078 $70,165 $298,144 $212,148Cost of sales  41,412  82,564  43,009  79,569  39,726  31,390  31,568  39,230  166,985  102,684Gross margin  42,065  50,206  38,888  53,092  40,443  35,511  33,510  30,935  131,159  109,464Gross margin (%)  50.4%  37.8%  47.5%  40.0%  50.4%  53.1%  51.5%  44.1%  44.0%  51.6%Selling, general and administrativeexpenses  40,765  43,392  34,769  47,894  35,051  33,185  32,078  35,594  118,926  100,315Operating profit (loss) $1,300 $6,814 $4,119 $5,198 $5,392 $2,326 $1,432 $(4,659) $12,233 $9,149Depreciation and amortization (i)  3,188  3,255  3,209  3,966  3,229  3,162  3,226    3,282  9,652  9,617EBITDA (ii)  $4,488 $10,069 $7,328 $9,164 $8,621 $5,488 $4,658 $(1,377) $21,885 $18,766(i) Depreciation and amortization included in cost of sales and selling, general and administrative expenses.(ii) Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA").

US sales increased 44% to $32.5 million, sales in Asia increased 14% to $28.3 million and European sales decreased 31% to $22.7 million. The third quarter of the prior year included several significant sales in Europe that were not repeated in the current third quarter.LUXURY BRAND COST OF SALES AND GROSS MARGINCost of sales for the luxury brand segment for the third quarter was $41.4 million compared to $39.7 million for the comparable quarter of the prior year. Gross margin for the quarter was $42.1 million or 50.4% compared to $40.4 million or 50.4% for the third quarter of the prior year.LUXURY BRAND SELLING, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSESSG&A expenses increased by 16% to $40.8 million from $35.1 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year (9% at constant exchange rates). The increase was due primarily to higher advertising, marketing and selling expenses and increased rent and building related expenses. Fixed costs accounted for $5.2 million of the increase, while variable expenses linked to higher volume of sales accounted for $0.5 million of the increase. SG&A expenses included depreciation and amortization expense of $3.1 million consistent with the comparable quarter of the prior year.Nine Months Ended October 31, 2011 Compared to Nine Months Ended October 31, 2010LUXURY BRAND SALESSales for the nine months ended October 31, 2011, were $298.1 million compared to $212.1 million for the comparable period of the prior year, an increase of 41% (29% at constant exchange rates). Sales in Asia increased 77% to $126.2 million, US sales increased 53% to $97.9 million and European sales decreased 4% to $74.0 million. During the period there were $60.8 million of high-value transactions, which carry generally lower-than-average gross margins.LUXURY BRAND COST OF SALES AND GROSS MARGINCost of sales for the luxury brand segment for the nine months ended October 31, 2011, was $167.0 million compared to $102.7 million for the comparable period of the prior year. Gross margin for the nine months ended October 31, 2011, was $131.2 million or 44.0% compared to $109.5 million or 51.6% for the comparable period of the prior year. The decrease in gross margin resulted primarily from exceptional high-value transactions during the period, which carry generally lower-than-average gross margins.LUXURY BRAND SELLING, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSESSG&A expenses increased by 19% to $118.9 million from $100.3 million in the comparable period of the prior year (11% at constant exchange rates). The increase was due primarily to higher advertising, marketing and selling expenses, higher variable compensation expenses resulting from higher sales and increased rent and building related expenses. Fixed costs accounted for $15.0 million of the increase, while variable expenses linked to higher volume of sales accounted for $3.6 million of the increase. SG&A expenses included depreciation and amortization expense of $9.4 million consistent with the comparable period of the prior year.LUXURY BRAND SEGMENT OPERATIONAL UPDATEDuring the nine months ended October 31, 2011, the luxury brand segment generated sales of $298.1 million, an increase of 41% over the comparable period of the prior year at actual exchange rates. The Company recorded significant high-value transactions of $60.8 million during the nine-month period. The US market generated sales of $97.9 million, an increase of 53% over the comparable quarter of the prior year. The long-term trend of growing wealth in Asia has resulted in increasing mobility of luxury consumers, benefiting the US market. In Japan, sales of $53.3 million increased by 25% at actual exchange rates and by 13% on a constant exchange rate basis over the comparable period of the prior year.  Asia (excluding Japan) had sales of $72.9 million, representing an increase of 157% at actual exchange rates and positive 143% on a constant exchange basis over the comparable period of the prior year. In Europe, sales of $74.0 million were 4% lower at actual exchange rates and negative 17% on a constant exchange basis over the comparable period of the prior year.A new licensed Harry Winston salon was opened in the Emirates Towers in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, during the third quarter.The luxury brand segment's distribution network consists of 19 directly operated salons, three licensed salons (in Manila, Philippines, Kiev, Ukraine and Dubai, United Arab Emirates) and 190 wholesale watch doors around the world.Luxury Brand Segment OutlookThe Company remains confident that its product offering, supported by a strong advertising campaign, will translate into solid fourth quarter results. The Company's global distribution network will continue to allow the Company to benefit from the increasing mobility of high-end luxury consumers. The Company continues to focus on strategies that will drive long-term growth. These strategies include initiatives to grow the core bridal and watch businesses, and new jewelry collections.A second licensed salon is expected to be opened in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and the Company plans to add 10 wholesale watch doors through the remainder of the fiscal year. Two new directly operated salons in Shanghai, China, are expected to be opened early next year and a second directly operated salon in London, UK, in mid-2012. A key component of the luxury brand's growth strategy is the expansion of its current salon network and wholesale distribution channel. The growth target is to expand to approximately 35 directly operated salons, 15 licensed salons, and 300 wholesale doors by fiscal 2016.On May 19, 2011, the Company announced that Harry Winston Inc. had entered into a business arrangement with Diamond Asset Advisors AG ("DAA"), which is in the process of establishing a polished diamond investment fund (the "Fund"). The Fund will be structured as a limited partnership with total funding of up to $250 million, offering institutional investors direct exposure to the wholesale market price of polished diamonds. Under the terms of the arrangement with the Fund, the Company's expert diamond team will source diamonds for the Fund that have the same high-quality characteristics that the luxury brand segment uses in its jewelry and watches, with a portion of the diamonds coming from the Company's existing inventory. The Fund will purchase the diamonds and then consign them to Harry Winston Inc., which will act as custodian. Harry Winston Inc. will use the consigned polished diamonds in the manufacturing of its jewelry and watches, paying the Fund when the jewelry or watch is sold. The price paid by the Fund to replace the sold polished diamonds will be used to determine the Fund's market value. This arrangement will increase the inventory available to Harry Winston Inc.'s expanding international salon network without additional demands on working capital. The Fund is expected to raise the first capital subscription of approximately $100 million from investors in fiscal 2013, with the remaining $150 million expected to be raised over the following year, subject to market conditions.Liquidity and Capital ResourcesWorking CapitalAs at October 31, 2011, the Company had unrestricted cash and cash equivalents of $83.2 million compared to $108.7 million at January 31, 2011. The Company had cash on hand and balances with banks of $80.9 million and short-term investments of $2.3 million at October 31, 2011. During the quarter ended October 31, 2011, the Company reported use of cash from operations of $17.4 million compared to a source of cash of $13.6 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year, which resulted primarily from the Company's decision to hold rough diamond inventory due to market conditions. At October 31, 2011, the Company had 1.1 million carats of rough diamond inventory available for sale at an estimated current market value of $123 million.Working capital increased to $428.5 million at October 31, 2011, from $328.6 million at January 31, 2011. During the quarter, the Company increased accounts receivable by $0.9 million, increased inventory and supplies by $37.5 million, increased other current assets by $2.8 million, increased trade and other payables by $5.9 million and increased employee benefit plans by $0.5 million.The Company's liquidity requirements fluctuate from quarter to quarter depending on, among other factors, the seasonality of production at the Diavik Diamond Mine, the seasonality of mine operating expenses, capital expenditure programs, the number of rough diamond sales events conducted during the quarter and the volume, size and quality distribution of rough diamonds delivered from the Diavik Diamond Mine and sold by the Company in each quarter, along with the seasonality of sales and salon expansion in the luxury brand segment. The Company's principal working capital needs include investments in inventory, other current assets, and trade and other payables and income taxes payable.The Company assesses liquidity and capital resources on a consolidated basis. The Company's requirements are for cash operating expenses, working capital, contractual debt requirements and capital expenditures. The Company believes that it will generate sufficient liquidity to meet its anticipated requirements for the next twelve months.Financing ActivitiesThe mining segment maintains a senior secured revolving credit facility with Standard Chartered Bank that was increased from $100.0 million to $125.0 million on February 28, 2011. At October 31, 2011, $60.0 million was outstanding compared to $50.0 million at January 31, 2011.During the quarter, the Company paid the $70.0 million promissory note plus accrued interest owing to Kinross from cash on hand. The promissory note was issued to Kinross on August 25, 2010, as part of the consideration for reacquiring Kinross's 9% indirect interest in the Diavik Joint Venture.As at October 31, 2011, $34.7 million and $2.8 million was outstanding under the Company's revolving financing facility relating to its Belgium subsidiary, Harry Winston Diamond International N.V., and its India subsidiary, Harry Winston Diamond (India) Private Limited, respectively, compared to $nil at January 31, 2011.During the quarter ended October 31, 2011, the luxury brand subsidiary, Harry Winston Inc., increased the amount outstanding on its secured five-year revolving credit facility to $201.5 million from $165.0 million at January 31, 2011.Investing ActivitiesDuring the third quarter, the Company purchased property, plant and equipment of $14.8 million, of which $10.8 million was purchased for the mining segment and $4.0 million for the luxury brand segment.Contractual ObligationsThe Company has contractual payment obligations with respect to interest-bearing loans and borrowings and, through its participation in the Joint Venture, future site restoration costs at the Diavik Diamond Mine level. Additionally, at the Joint Venture level, contractual obligations exist with respect to operating purchase obligations, as administered by DDMI, the operator of the mine. In order to maintain its 40% ownership interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine, HWDLP is obligated to fund 40% of the Joint Venture's total expenditures on a monthly basis. HWDLP's current projected share of the planned capital expenditures at the Diavik Diamond Mine, which are not reflected in the table below, including capital expenditures for the calendar years 2011 to 2015, is approximately $170 million assuming a Canadian/US average exchange rate of $1.00 for the five years. The most significant contractual obligations for the ensuing five-year period can be summarized as follows:CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS         Less than    Year     Year    After(expressed in thousands of United States dollars)     Total   1 year    2-3     4-5    5 yearsInterest-bearing loans and borrowings (a)(b)   $ 369,368  $72,111  $ 274,707  $  4,872  $ 17,678Environmental and participation agreements incremental commitments (c)     95,072   82,553    683     4,820    7,016Operating lease obligations (d)     231,738   24,409    40,459     39,121    127,749Total contractual obligations   $ 696,178  $179,073  $ 315,849  $  48,813  $ 152,443(a)   Interest-bearing loans and borrowings presented in the foregoing table include current and long-term portions. The mining segment maintains a senior secured revolving credit facility with Standard Chartered Bank for $125.0 million. The facility has an initial maturity date of June 24, 2013, with two one-year extensions at the Company's option. There are no scheduled repayments required before maturity. At October 31, 2011, $60.0 million was outstanding.     On August 25, 2010, the Company issued a promissory note in the amount of $70.0 million, maturing on August 25, 2011, as part of the consideration for reacquiring its 9% indirect interest in the Diavik Joint Venture from Kinross. The note bears interest at a rate of 5% per annum and can be paid in cash. On August 25, 2011, the Company paid the $70.0 million promissory note plus accrued interest to Kinross from cash on hand.     The Company has available a $45.0 million revolving financing facility (utilization in either US dollars or Euros) for inventory and receivables funding in connection with marketing activities through its Belgian subsidiary, Harry Winston Diamond International N.V., and its Indian subsidiary, Harry Winston Diamond (India) Private Limited. Borrowings under the Belgian facility bear interest at the bank's base rate plus 1.5%. Borrowings under the Indian facility bear an interest rate of 12.0%. At October 31, 2011, $34.7 million and $2.8 million were outstanding under this facility relating to its Belgian subsidiary, Harry Winston Diamond International N.V., and its Indian subsidiary, Harry Winston Diamond (India) Private Limited, respectively. The facility is guaranteed by Harry Winston Diamond Corporation.     Harry Winston Inc. maintains a credit agreement with a syndicate of banks for a $250.0 million five-year revolving credit facility, which expires on March 31, 2013. There are no scheduled repayments required before maturity. At October 31, 2011, $201.5 million had been drawn against this secured credit facility.     Also included in long-term debt of Harry Winston Inc. is a 25-year loan agreement for CHF 17.5 million ($20.1 million) used to finance the construction of the Company's watch factory in Geneva, Switzerland. The loan agreement is comprised of a CHF 3.5 million ($4.0 million) loan and a CHF 14.0 million ($16.1 million) loan. The CHF 3.5 million loan bears interest at a rate of 3.15% and matures on April 22, 2013. The CHF 14.0 million loan bears interest at a rate of 3.55% and matures on January 31, 2033. At October 31, 2011, $17.8 million was outstanding.The bank has a secured interest in the factory building.     Harry Winston Japan, K.K. maintains unsecured credit agreements with two banks, amounting to ¥1,170 million ($15.0 million). Harry Winston Japan, K.K. also maintains a secured credit agreement amounting to ¥575 million ($7.4 million). This facility is secured by inventory owned by Harry Winston Japan, K.K.     The Company's first mortgage on real property has scheduled principal payments of approximately $0.2 million quarterly, may be prepaid at any time, and matures on September 1, 2018. On October 31, 2011, $6.6 million was outstanding on the mortgage.   (b) Interest on loans and borrowings is calculated at various fixed and floating rates. Projected interest payments on the current debt outstanding were based on interest rates in effect at October 31, 2011, and have been included under interest-bearing loans and borrowings in the table above. Interest payments for the next twelve months are approximated to be $10.8 million.   (c) The Joint Venture, under environmental and other agreements, must provide funding for the Environmental Monitoring Advisory Board. These agreements also state that the Joint Venture must provide security deposits for the performance by the Joint Venture of its reclamation and abandonment obligations under all environmental laws and regulations. The operator of the Joint Venture has fulfilled such obligations for the security deposits by posting letters of credit of which HWDLP's share as at October 31, 2011, was $80.8 million based on its 40% ownership interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine. There can be no assurance that the operator will continue its practice of posting letters of credit in fulfillment of this obligation, in which event HWDLP would be required to post its proportionate share of such security directly, which would result in additional constraints on liquidity. The requirement to post security for the reclamation and abandonment obligations may be reduced to the extent of amounts spent by the Joint Venture on those activities. The Joint Venture has also signed participation agreements with various native groups. These agreements are expected to contribute to the social, economic and cultural well-being of area Aboriginal bands. The actual cash outlay for the Joint Venture's obligations under these agreements is not anticipated to occur until later in the life of the Diavik Diamond Mine.   (d) Operating lease obligations represent future minimum annual rentals under non-cancellable operating leases for Harry Winston Inc. salons and office space, and long-term leases for property, land, office premises and a fuel tank farm for the Diavik Diamond Mine.Non-GAAP MeasureIn addition to discussing earnings measures in accordance with IFRS, the MD&A provides the following non-GAAP measure, which is also used by management to monitor and evaluate the performance of the Company and its business segments.The term EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) does not have a standardized meaning according to IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. The Company defines EBITDA as sales minus cost of sales and selling, general and administrative expenses, meaning it represents operating profit before depreciation and amortization.EBITDA is a measure commonly reported and widely used by investors and analysts as an indicator of the Company's operating performance and ability to incur and service debt and as a valuation metric. EBITDA margin is defined as the ratio obtained by dividing EBITDA by sales.CONSOLIDATED(expressed in thousands of United States dollars)(quarterly results are unaudited)                IFRS            CDN GAAP  IFRS  IFRS    2012   2012   2012   2011   2011   2011   2011   2010  NinemonthsendedOctober31,  NinemonthsendedOctober31,    Q3   Q2   Q1   Q4   Q3   Q2   Q1   Q4  2011  2010Operating profit (loss) $ (1,963) $ 23,100 $ 4,685 $ 21,245 $ 14,830 $ 29,932 $ 2,341 $ (3,082) $25,822 $47,101Depreciation and amortization   23,121   20,716   20,291   24,635   18,657   19,515   14,200   18,258  64,128  52,372EBITDA $ 21,158 $ 43,816 $ 24,976 $ 45,880 $ 33,487 $ 49,447 $ 16,541 $ 15,176 $89,950 $99,473                                       MINING SEGMENT(expressed in thousands of United States dollars)(quarterly results are unaudited)                IFRS             CDN GAAP  IFRS  IFRS    2012   2012   2012   2011   2011   2011   2011   2010  NinemonthsendedOctober31,  NinemonthsendedOctober31,    Q3   Q2   Q1   Q4   Q3   Q2   Q1   Q4  2011  2010Operating profit (loss) $ (3,263) $ 16,286 $ 566 $ 16,047 $ 9,438 $ 27,606 $ 909 $ 1,577 $13,589 $37,952Depreciation and amortization   19,932   17,461   17,083   20,669   15,428   16,352   10,975   14,976  54,477  42,755EBITDA $ 16,669 $ 33,747 $ 17,649 $ 36,716 $ 24,866 $ 43,958 $ 11,884 $ 16,553 $68,066 $80,707                                       LUXURY BRAND SEGMENT(expressed in thousands of United States dollars)(quarterly results are unaudited)                IFRS            CDN GAAP  IFRS  IFRS    2012   2012   2012   2011   2011   2011   2011  2010  NinemonthsendedOctober31,  NinemonthsendedOctober31,    Q3   Q2   Q1   Q4   Q3   Q2   Q1  Q4  2011  2010Operating profit (loss) $ 1,300 $ 6,814 $ 4,119 $ 5,198 $ 5,392 $ 2,326 $ 1,432 $(4,659) $12,233 $9,149Depreciation and amortization   3,188   3,255   3,209   3,966   3,229   3,162   3,226    3,282  9,652  9,617EBITDA $ 4,488 $ 10,069 $ 7,328 $ 9,164 $ 8,621 $ 5,488 $ 4,658 $(1,377) $21,885 $18,766Risks and UncertaintiesHarry Winston Diamond Corporation is subject to a number of risks and uncertainties as a result of its operations. In addition to the other information contained in this MD&A and the Company's other publicly filed disclosure documents, readers should give careful consideration to the following risks, each of which could have a material adverse effect on the Company's business prospects or financial condition.Nature of MiningThe operation of the Diavik Diamond Mine is subject to risks inherent in the mining industry, including variations in grade and other geological differences, unexpected problems associated with required water retention dikes, water quality, surface and underground conditions, processing problems, equipment performance, accidents, labour disputes, risks relating to the physical security of the diamonds, force majeure risks and natural disasters. Particularly with underground mining operations, inherent risks include variations in rock structure and strength as it impacts on mining method selection and performance, de-watering and water handling requirements, achieving the required paste backfill strengths, and unexpected local ground conditions. Hazards, such as unusual or unexpected rock formations, rock bursts, pressures, collapses, flooding or other conditions, may be encountered during mining. Such risks could result in personal injury or fatality; damage to or destruction of mining properties, processing facilities or equipment; environmental damage; delays, suspensions or permanent reductions in mining production; monetary losses; and possible legal liability.The Diavik Diamond Mine, because of its remote northern location and access only by winter road or by air, is subject to special climate and transportation risks. These risks include the inability to operate or to operate efficiently during periods of extreme cold, the unavailability of materials and equipment, and increased transportation costs due to the late opening and/or early closure of the winter road. Such factors can add to the cost of mine development, production and operation and/or impair production and mining activities, thereby affecting the Company's profitability.Nature of Joint Arrangement with DDMIHWDLP holds an undivided 40% interest in the assets, liabilities and expenses of the Diavik Diamond Mine and the Diavik group of mineral claims. The Diavik Diamond Mine and the exploration and development of the Diavik group of mineral claims is a joint arrangement between DDMI (60%) and HWDLP (40%), and is subject to the risks normally associated with the conduct of joint ventures and similar joint arrangements. These risks include the inability to exert influence over strategic decisions made in respect of the Diavik Diamond Mine and the Diavik group of mineral claims. By virtue of DDMI's 60% interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine, it has a controlling vote in virtually all Joint Venture management decisions respecting the development and operation of the Diavik Diamond Mine and the development of the Diavik group of mineral claims. Accordingly, DDMI is able to determine the timing and scope of future project capital expenditures, and therefore is able to impose capital expenditure requirements on HWDLP that the Company may not have sufficient cash to meet. A failure to meet capital expenditure requirements imposed by DDMI could result in HWDLP's interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine and the Diavik group of mineral claims being diluted.Diamond Prices and Demand for DiamondsThe profitability of the Company is dependent upon production from the Diavik Diamond Mine and on the results of the operations of its luxury brand operations. Each, in turn, is dependent in significant part upon the worldwide demand for and price of diamonds. Diamond prices fluctuate and are affected by numerous factors beyond the control of the Company, including worldwide economic trends, particularly in the US, Japan, China and India, worldwide levels of diamond discovery and production, and the level of demand for, and discretionary spending on, luxury goods such as diamonds and jewelry. Low or negative growth in the worldwide economy, renewed or additional credit market disruptions, natural disasters or the occurrence of further terrorist attacks or similar activities creating disruptions in economic growth could result in decreased demand for luxury goods such as diamonds and jewelry, thereby negatively affecting the price of diamonds and jewelry. Similarly, a substantial increase in the worldwide level of diamond production or in diamonds available for sale through recommencement of suspended mining activity or the release of stocks held back during recent periods of low demand could also negatively affect the price of diamonds. In each case, such developments could have a material adverse effect on the Company's results of operations.Cash Flow and LiquidityThe Company's liquidity requirements fluctuate from quarter to quarter and year to year depending on, among other factors, the seasonality of production at the Diavik Diamond Mine, the seasonality of mine operating expenses, exploration expenses, capital expenditure programs, the number of rough diamond sales events conducted during the quarter and the volume, size and quality distribution of rough diamonds delivered from the Diavik Diamond Mine and sold by the Company in each quarter, along with the seasonality of sales and salon refurbishment and expansion in the luxury brand segment. The Company's principal working capital needs include investments in inventory, prepaid expenses and other current assets, and accounts payable and income taxes payable. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to meet each or all of its liquidity requirements. A failure by the Company to meet its liquidity requirements could result in the Company failing to meet its planned development objectives, or in the Company being in default of a contractual obligation, each of which could have a material adverse effect on the Company's business prospects or financial condition.Economic EnvironmentThe Company's financial results are tied to the global economic conditions and their impact on levels of consumer confidence and consumer spending. The global markets have experienced the impact of a significant US and international economic downturn since the fall of 2008. This has restricted the Company's growth opportunities both domestically and internationally, and a return to a recession or weak recovery, due to recent disruptions in financial markets in the US and the European Union or otherwise, the 2011 disaster in Japan and political upheavals in the Middle East, could cause the Company to experience further revenue declines across both of its business segments due to deteriorated consumer confidence and spending, and a decrease in the availability of credit, which could have a material adverse effect on the Company's business prospects or financial condition. The credit facilities essential to the diamond polishing industry are largely underwritten by European banks that are currently under stress with the European sovereign debt issue. The withdrawal or reduction of such facilities could also have a material adverse effect on the Company's business prospects or financial condition. The Company monitors economic developments in the markets in which it operates and uses this information in its continuous strategic and operational planning in an effort to adjust its business in response to changing economic conditions.Currency RiskCurrency fluctuations may affect the Company's financial performance. Diamonds are sold throughout the world based principally on the US dollar price, and although the Company reports its financial results in US dollars, a majority of the costs and expenses of the Diavik Diamond Mine are incurred in Canadian dollars. Further, the Company has a significant deferred income tax liability that has been incurred and will be payable in Canadian dollars. The Company's currency exposure relates primarily to expenses and obligations incurred by it in Canadian dollars and, secondarily, to revenues of Harry Winston Inc. in currencies other than the US dollar. The appreciation of the Canadian dollar against the US dollar, and the depreciation of other currencies against the US dollar, therefore, will increase the expenses of the Diavik Diamond Mine and the amount of the Company's Canadian dollar liabilities relative to the revenue the Company will receive from diamond sales, and will decrease the US dollar revenues received by Harry Winston Inc. From time to time, the Company may use a limited number of derivative financial instruments to manage its foreign currency exposure.Licences and PermitsThe operation of the Diavik Diamond Mine and exploration on the Diavik property requires licences and permits from the Canadian government. The Diavik Diamond Mine Type "A" Water Licence was renewed by the regional Wek'eezhii Land and Water Board to October 31, 2015. While the Company anticipates that DDMI, the operator of the Diavik Diamond Mine, will be able to renew this licence and other necessary permits in the future, there can be no guarantee that DDMI will be able to do so or obtain or maintain all other necessary licences and permits that may be required to maintain the operation of the Diavik Diamond Mine or to further explore and develop the Diavik property.Regulatory and Environmental RisksThe operation of the Diavik Diamond Mine, exploration activities at the Diavik Project and the manufacturing of jewelry and watches are subject to various laws and regulations governing the protection of the environment, exploration, development, production, taxes, labour standards, occupational health, waste disposal, mine safety, manufacturing safety and other matters. New laws and regulations, amendments to existing laws and regulations, or more stringent implementation or changes in enforcement policies under existing laws and regulations could have a material adverse effect on the Company by increasing costs and/or causing a reduction in levels of production from the Diavik Diamond Mine and in the manufacture of jewelry and watches. As well, as the Company's international operations expand, it or its subsidiaries become subject to laws and regulatory regimes that could differ materially from those under which they operate in Canada and the US.Mining and manufacturing are subject to potential risks and liabilities associated with pollution of the environment and the disposal of waste products occurring as a result of mining and manufacturing operations. To the extent that the Company's operations are subject to uninsured environmental liabilities, the payment of such liabilities could have a material adverse effect on the Company.Climate ChangeCanada ratified the Kyoto Protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in late 2002 and the Kyoto Protocol came into effect in Canada in February 2005. The Canadian government has established a number of policy measures in order to meet its emission reduction guidelines. While the impact of these measures cannot be quantified at this time, the likely effect will be to increase costs for fossil fuels, electricity and transportation; restrict industrial emission levels; impose added costs for emissions in excess of permitted levels; and increase costs for monitoring and reporting. Compliance with these initiatives could have a material adverse effect on the Company's results of operations.Resource and Reserve EstimatesThe Company's figures for mineral resources and ore reserves on the Diavik group of mineral claims are estimates, and no assurance can be given that the anticipated carats will be recovered. The estimation of reserves is a subjective process. Forecasts are based on engineering data, projected future rates of production and the timing of future expenditures, all of which are subject to numerous uncertainties and various interpretations. The Company expects that its estimates of reserves will change to reflect updated information as well as to reflect depletion due to production. Reserve estimates may be revised upward or downward based on the results of current and future drilling, testing or production levels, and on changes in mine design. In addition, market fluctuations in the price of diamonds or increases in the costs to recover diamonds from the Diavik Diamond Mine may render the mining of ore reserves uneconomical.Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Due to the uncertainty that may attach to inferred mineral resources, there is no assurance that mineral resources at the Diavik property will be upgraded to proven and probable ore reserves.InsuranceThe Company's business is subject to a number of risks and hazards, including adverse environmental conditions, industrial accidents, labour disputes, unusual or unexpected geological conditions, risks relating to the physical security of diamonds and jewelry held as inventory or in transit, changes in the regulatory environment and natural phenomena such as inclement weather conditions. Such occurrences could result in damage to the Diavik Diamond Mine, personal injury or death, environmental damage to the Diavik property, delays in mining, the closing of Harry Winston Inc.'s manufacturing facilities or salons, monetary losses and possible legal liability. Although insurance is maintained to protect against certain risks in connection with the Diavik Diamond Mine and the Company's operations, the insurance in place will not cover all potential risks. It may not be possible to maintain insurance to cover insurable risks at economically feasible premiums.Fuel CostsThe Diavik Diamond Mine's expected fuel needs are purchased periodically during the year for storage, and transported to the mine site by way of the winter road. These costs will increase if transportation by air freight is required due to a shortened "winter road season" or unexpected high fuel usage.The cost of the fuel purchased is based on the then prevailing price and expensed into operating costs on a usage basis. The Diavik Diamond Mine currently has no hedges for its future anticipated fuel consumption.Reliance on Skilled EmployeesProduction at the Diavik Diamond Mine is dependent upon the efforts of certain skilled employees of DDMI. The loss of these employees or the inability of DDMI to attract and retain additional skilled employees may adversely affect the level of diamond production from the Diavik Diamond Mine.The Company's success in marketing rough diamonds and operating the business of Harry Winston Inc. is dependent on the services of key executives and skilled employees, as well as the continuance of key relationships with certain third parties, such as diamantaires. The loss of these persons or the Company's inability to attract and retain additional skilled employees or to establish and maintain relationships with required third parties may adversely affect its business and future operations in marketing diamonds and operating its luxury brand segment.Expansion and Refurbishment of the Existing Salon NetworkA key component of the Company's luxury brand strategy in recent years has been the expansion of its salon network. The Company currently expects to expand its retail salon network to a total of 35 salons and 300 wholesale doors worldwide by fiscal 2016. An additional objective of the Company is to achieve a compound annual growth rate in sales in the mid-teens in the luxury brand segment and an operating profit in the low to mid-teens in the luxury brand segment, in each case over the five-year period from fiscal 2012 to 2016. Although the Company considers these objectives to be reasonable, they are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, and there can be no assurance that these objectives will be realized. This strategy requires the Company to make ongoing capital expenditures to build and open new salons, to refurbish existing salons from time to time, and to incur additional operating expenses in order to operate the new salons. To date, much of this expansion has been financed by Harry Winston Inc. through borrowings. The successful expansion of the Company's global salon network, and achieving an increase in sales and in operating profit, will depend on a variety of factors, including worldwide economic conditions, market demand for luxury goods, the strength of the Harry Winston brand and the availability of sufficient funding. There can be no assurance that the expansion of the salon network will continue or that the current expansion will prove successful in increasing annual sales or earnings from the luxury brand segment, and the increased debt levels resulting from this expansion could negatively impact the Company's liquidity and its results from operations in the absence of increased sales and earnings.The Company has to date licensed three retail salons to operate under the Harry Winston name and currently expects to increase the number of licensed salons to 15 by fiscal 2016.  There is no assurance that the Company will be able to find qualified third parties to enter into these licensing arrangements, or that the licensees will honour the terms of the agreements. The conduct of licensees may have a negative impact on the Company's distinctive brand name and reputation. Competition in the Luxury Brand SegmentThe Company is exposed to competition in the luxury brand market from other luxury goods, diamond, jewelry and watch retailers. The ability of Harry Winston Inc. to successfully compete with such luxury goods, diamond, jewelry and watch retailers is dependent upon a number of factors, including the ability to source high-end polished diamonds and protect and promote its distinctive brand name and reputation. If Harry Winston Inc. is unable to successfully compete in the luxury jewelry segment, the Company's results of operations will be adversely affected.Changes in Disclosure Controls and Procedures and Internal Control over Financial ReportingDuring the third quarter of fiscal 2012, there were no changes in the Company's disclosure controls and procedures or internal control over financial reporting that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company's disclosure controls and procedures or internal control over financial reporting.Critical Accounting EstimatesManagement is often required to make judgments, assumptions and estimates in the application of IFRS that have a significant impact on the financial results of the Company. Certain policies are more significant than others and are, therefore, considered critical accounting policies. Accounting policies are considered critical if they rely on a substantial amount of judgment (use of estimates) in their application or if they result from a choice between accounting alternatives and that choice has a material impact on the Company's reported results or financial position. There have been no significant changes to critical accounting estimates since the first quarter of fiscal 2012.Changes in Accounting PoliciesThe International Accounting Standards Board ("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"). IFRS 9 provides guidance on the classification and measurement of financial assets and financial liabilities. This standard becomes effective for the Company's fiscal year end beginning February 1, 2013. The Company is currently assessing the impact of the new standard on its financial statements.IFRS 11, "Joint Arrangements" ("IFRS 11"), was issued by the IASB on May 12, 2011, and will replace IAS 31, "Interest in Joint Ventures". The new standard will apply to the accounting for interests in joint arrangements where there is joint control. Under IFRS 11, joint arrangements are classified as either joint ventures or joint operations. The structure of the joint arrangement will no longer be the most significant factor in determining whether a joint arrangement is either a joint venture or a joint operation. Proportionate consolidations will no longer be allowed and will be replaced by equity accounting. IFRS 11 is effective for the Company's fiscal year end beginning February 1, 2013, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact of IFRS 11 on its results of operations and financial position.IFRS 13, "Fair Value Measurement" ("IFRS 13"), was also issued by the IASB on May 12, 2011. The new standard makes IFRS consistent with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("US GAAP") on measuring fair value and related fair value disclosures. The new standard creates a single source of guidance for fair value measurements. IFRS 13 is effective for the Company's fiscal year end beginning February 1, 2013, with early adoption permitted. The Company is assessing the impact of IFRS 13 on its consolidated financial statements.Outstanding Share InformationAs at November 30,

statements.Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial StatementsOCTOBER 31, 2011 WITH COMPARATIVE FIGURES(TABULAR AMOUNTS IN THOUSANDS OF UNITED STATES DOLLARS, EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE NOTED)Note 1:Nature of OperationsHarry Winston Diamond Corporation (the "Company") is a diamond enterprise with assets in the mining and luxury brand segments of the diamond industry.The Company's mining asset is an ownership interest in the Diavik group of mineral claims. The Diavik Joint Venture (the "Joint Venture") is an unincorporated joint arrangement between Diavik Diamond Mines Inc. ("DDMI") (60%) and Harry Winston Diamond Limited Partnership ("HWDLP") (40%) where HWDLP holds an undivided 40% ownership interest in the assets, liabilities and expenses of the Diavik Diamond Mine. DDMI is the operator of the Diavik Diamond Mine. DDMI and HWDLP are headquartered in Yellowknife, Canada. DDMI is a wholly owned subsidiary of Rio Tinto plc of London, England, and Harry Winston Diamond Limited Partnership is a wholly owned subsidiary of Harry Winston Diamond Corporation of Toronto, Canada.The Company also owns Harry Winston Inc., the premier fine jewelry and watch retailer with select locations throughout the world. Its head office is located in New York City, United States.Certain comparative figures have been reclassified to conform with current year's presentation.The Company is incorporated and domiciled in Canada and its shares are publicly traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange and the New York Stock Exchange. The address of its registered office is Toronto, Ontario.These unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been approved for issue by the Audit Committee on December 8, 2011.Note 2:Basis of Preparation(a)Statement of compliance These unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") International Accounting Standard ("IAS") 34, "Interim Financial Reporting". The Company's first annual consolidated financial statements under IFRS will be presented for the fiscal year ending January 31, 2012. The accounting policies adopted in these unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements are consistent with the accounting policies the Company expects to adopt in its IFRS consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ending January 31, 2012, and are based on IFRS as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB") that the Company expects to be applicable at that time.   These unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all disclosures required by IFRS for annual consolidated financial statements and accordingly should be read in conjunction with the Company's audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended January 31, 2011 presented under generally accepted accounting principles in Canada (''Canadian GAAP'') and in conjunction with the IFRS transition disclosures in Note 15 to these interim statements. These unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared following the same accounting policies and methods of computation as presented in the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements of April 30, 2011.  (b) Basis of measurement These unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the historical cost basis except for the following:financial instruments held for trading are measured at fair value through profit and lossliabilities for RSU and DSU plans are measured at fair value  (c)Currency of presentation These condensed consolidated interim financial statements are expressed in United States dollars, consistent with the predominant functional currency of the Company's operations. All financial information presented in United States dollars has been rounded to the nearest thousand.Note 3:Changes in Accounting PoliciesStandards issued but not yet effectiveThe following standards and interpretations have been issued but are not yet effective and have not been early adopted in these financial statements. These standards may result in consequential changes to the accounting policies and other note disclosures.(i)     Fair Value Measurement Guidelines(ii)     IAS 1 (Revised) - Presentation of Financial Statements(iii)     IAS17 (Replacement) - Leases(iv)     IAS 32 (Replacement) - Liabilities and Equity(v)     IAS 19 (Replacement) - Employee Benefits and Pensions(vi)     IAS 11 and IAS 18 (Replacement) - Revenue Recognition(vii)     Improvements to IFRSsThe 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"). IFRS 9 provides guidance on the classification and measurement of financial assets and financial liabilities. This standard becomes effective for the Company's fiscal year end beginning February 1, 2013. The Company is currently assessing the impact of the new standard on its financial statements.IFRS 11, "Joint Arrangements" ("IFRS 11") was issued by the IASB on May 12, 2011 and will replace IAS 31, "Interest in Joint Ventures". The new standard will apply to the accounting for interests in joint arrangements where there is joint control. Under IFRS 11, joint arrangements are classified as either joint ventures or joint operations. The structure of the joint arrangement will no longer be the most significant factor in determining whether a joint arrangement is either a joint venture or a joint operation. Proportionate consolidations will no longer be allowed and will be replaced by equity accounting. IFRS 11 is effective for the Company's fiscal year end beginning February 1, 2013, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact of IFRS 11 on its results of operations and financial position.IFRS 13, "Fair Value Measurement" ("IFRS 13") was also issued by the IASB on May 12, 2011. The new standard makes IFRS consistent with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("US GAAP") on measuring fair value and related fair value disclosures. The new standard creates a single source of guidance for fair value measurements. IFRS 13 is effective for the Company's fiscal year end beginning February 1, 2013, with early adoption permitted. The Company is assessing the impact of IFRS 13 on its consolidated financial statements.Note 4:Cash Resources                     October 31,2011    January 31,2011Cash on hand and balances with banks                  $ 80,896  $ 107,993Short-term investments (a)                    2,287    700Total cash resources                  $ 83,183  $ 108,693(a) Short-term investments are held in overnight deposits and money market instruments with a maturity of 30 days.Note 5:Inventory and Supplies                         October 31,2011     January 31,2011Luxury brand raw materials and work-in-progress                      $ 114,745   $ 80,013Luxury brand merchandise inventory                        218,494     226,358Mining rough diamond inventory                        80,567     30,451Mining supplies inventory                        69,860     66,390Total inventory and supplies                      $ 483,666   $ 403,212Total inventory and supplies is net of a provision for obsolescence of $ 2.0 million ($2.9 million at January 31, 2011).Note 6:Diavik Joint VentureThe following represents HWDLP's 40% proportionate interest in the Joint Venture as at September 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010:                      October 31,2011    January 31,2011Current assets                   $ 96,727   $ 92,487Non-current assets                     679,409     714,386Current liabilities                     37,368     31,493Non-current liabilities and participant's account                     738,768     775,380       Threemonthsended October 31,2011    ThreemonthsendedOctober 31,2010    Ninemonthsended October 31,2011    Nine monthsendedOctober 31,2010Expenses net of interest income (a) (b)    $ 57,918  $ 52,353  $ 181,576  $ 147,818Cash flows resulting from (used in) operating activities      (26,920)    (31,951)    (116,815)    (85,265)Cash flows resulting from financing activities      39,156    41,189    154,239    113,108Cash flows resulting from (used in) investing activities      (13,460)    (11,164)    (35,680)    (30,153)(a)  The Joint Venture only earns interest income.(b)  Expenses net of interest income for the three and nine months ended October 31, 2011 of $nil and $0.1 million, respectively(three and nine months ended October 31, 2010 of $nil and $0.1 million, respectively).HWDLP is contingently liable for DDMI's portion of the liabilities of the Joint Venture, and to the extent HWDLP's participating interest has increased because of the failure of DDMI to make a cash contribution when required, HWDLP would have access to an increased portion of the assets of the Joint Venture to settle these liabilities.During the third quarter, the Company recognized a non-cash $13.0 million charge related to the de-recognition of certain components of the backfill plant (the "Paste Plant") associated with paste production at the Diavik Diamond Mine. The original mine plan envisioned the use of blasthole stoping and underhand cut and fill underground mining methods for the Diavik ore bodies using paste to preserve underground stability. It is now expected that the higher velocity and lower cost sub-level retreat mining method, which does not require paste, will be used for both the A-154 South and A-418 underground ore bodies. As a result, certain components of the Paste Plant necessary for the production of paste will no longer be required and accordingly have been de-recognized during the third quarter.Note 7:Intangible Assets    Amortizationperiod    Cost    Accumulatedamortization    October 31,2011 net    January 31,2011 netTrademark   indefinite life  $ 112,995  $ -  $ 112,995  $ 112,995Drawings   indefinite life    12,365    -    12,365    12,365Wholesale distribution network   120 months    5,575    (3,459)    2,116    2,534Intangible assets      $ 130,935  $ (3,459)  $ 127,476  $ 127,894Amortization expense for the nine months ended October 31, 2011 was $0.4 million ($1.0 million for the nine months ended October 31, 2010).Note 8:Employee Benefit PlansThe employee benefit obligation reflected in the consolidated balance sheet is as follows:     October 31, 2011   January 31,2011Defined benefit plan obligation -

HWDLP anticipates its share of this funding requirement will be approximately $0.2 million for calendar 2011. Further funding will be required in future years; however, specific amounts have not yet been determined. These agreements also state that the Joint Venture must provide security deposits for the performance by the Joint Venture of its reclamation and abandonment obligations under all environmental laws and regulations. HWDLP's share of the letters of credit outstanding posted by the operator of the Joint Venture with respect to the environmental agreements as at October 31, 2011, was $80.8 million. The agreement specifically provides that these funding requirements will be reduced by amounts incurred by the Joint Venture on reclamation and abandonment activities.  (b)Participation agreements The Joint Venture has signed participation agreements with various native groups. These agreements are expected to contribute to the social, economic and cultural well-being of the Aboriginal bands. The agreements are each for an initial term of twelve years and shall be automatically renewed on terms to be agreed for successive periods of six years thereafter until termination. The agreements terminate in the event that the mine permanently ceases to operate. Harry Winston Diamond Corporation's share of the Joint Venture's participation agreements as at October 31, 2011 was $1.7 million.  (c)Commitments Commitments include the cumulative maximum funding commitments secured by letters of credit of the Joint Venture's environmental and participation agreements at HWDLP's 40% ownership interest, before any reduction of future reclamation activities; and future minimum annual rentals under non-cancellable operating and capital leases for luxury brand salons and corporate office space, and long-term leases for property, land, office premises and a fuel tank farm at the Diavik Diamond Mine; and are as follows:             2012         $ 106,9622013           103,4432014           103,4332015           108,0942016           106,722Thereafter           222,821Note 12:Capital ManagementThe Company's capital includes cash and cash equivalents, short-term debt, long-term debt and equity, which includes issued share capital, contributed surplus and retained earnings.The Company's primary objective with respect to its capital management is to ensure that it has sufficient cash resources to maintain its ongoing operations, to provide returns to shareholders and benefits for other stakeholders, and to pursue growth opportunities. To meet these needs, the Company may from time to time raise additional funds through borrowing and/or the issuance of equity or debt or by securing strategic partners, upon approval by the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors reviews and approves any material transactions out of the ordinary course of business, including proposals on acquisitions or other major investments or divestitures, as well as annual capital and operating budgets.The Company assesses liquidity and capital resources on a consolidated basis. The Company's requirements are for cash operating expenses, working capital, contractual debt requirements and capital expenditures. The Company believes that it will generate sufficient liquidity to meet its anticipated requirements for the next twelve months.Note 13:Financial InstrumentsThe Company has various financial instruments comprising cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, trade and other payables, and interest-bearing loans and borrowings.Cash and cash equivalents consist of cash on hand and balances with banks and short-term investments held in overnight deposits with a maturity on acquisition of less than 90 days. Cash and cash equivalents, which are designated as held-for-trading, are carried at fair value based on quoted market prices and are classified within Level 1 of the fair value hierarchy established by the International Accounting Standards Board.The fair value of accounts receivable is determined by the amount of cash anticipated to be received in the normal course of business from the financial asset.The Company's interest-bearing loans and borrowings are for the most part fully secured; hence the fair values of these instruments at October 31, 2011 are considered to approximate their carrying value.The carrying values of these financial instruments are as follows:   October 31, 2011   January 31, 2011   Estimatedfair value   Carryingvalue   Estimatedfair value   CarryingvalueFinancial Assets                Cash and cash equivalents $83,183  $83,183  $108,693  $108,693 Accounts receivable  31,819   31,819   22,788   22,788  $115,002  $115,002  $131,481  $131,481Financial Liabilities                Trade and other payables $113,193  $113,193  $136,490  $136,490 Promissory note  -   -   70,000   70,000 Interest-bearing loans and borrowings  343,959   343,959   261,836   261,836  $457,152  $457,152  $468,326  $468,326Note 14:Segmented InformationThe Company operates in two segments within the diamond industry, mining and luxury brand, for the three and nine months ended October 31, 2011.The mining segment consists of the Company's rough diamond business.

conform to IFRS presentation requirements, certain asset balances have been reclassified to current or non-current asset accounts.  (b)Other current assets      Ref.  October 31, 2010Reclassification of assetsSee(a)$(9,773)Deferred tax impact on intra-group transfer of assets (i) 2,293Net decrease in other current assets  $(7,480)(i) Under IFRS, deferred taxes are recognized for the difference in tax bases between jurisdictions as a result of an intra-group transfer of assets. The deferred tax component under IFRS is computed using the tax rate applicable to the purchaser, whereas the seller's tax rate was applied under Canadian GAAP.   During the three months ended October 31, 2010, the accounting under IFRS resulted in a reduction of $0.1 million in both deferred income tax assets and deferred income tax recovery.   During the nine months ended October 31, 2010, the accounting under IFRS resulted in a reduction of $0.6 million in both deferred income tax assets and deferred income tax recovery.(c) Property, plant and equipment - Mining     Ref. October 31, 2010Derecognition of exploration costs capitalized(i)$(17,372)Remeasurement of the asset retirement obligationSee (f)(i) (920)Total decrease in property, plant and equipment - Mining$(18,292)(i) Under Canadian GAAP, the Company's policy on exploration expenditures incurred is to capitalize and to amortize using the units-of-production method. For IFRS purposes, the Company's accounting policy on exploration expenditures is to expense unless the exploration activity relates to proven and probable reserves.   For the three months ended October 31, 2010, the accounting under IFRS increased mining capital assets by $0.4 million, decreased cost of goods sold by approximately $0.6 million, and increased exploration costs by $0.2 million, reflecting the net impact of reversing Canadian GAAP depreciation on capitalized exploration costs, partially offset by the expensing of exploration costs incurred in the quarter. Deferred income tax liabilities and deferred income tax expense both increased by $0.2 million.   For the nine months ended October 31, 2010, the accounting under IFRS increased mining capital assets by $1.3 million, decreased cost of goods sold by approximately $1.6 million, and increased exploration costs by $0.3 million, reflecting the net impact of reversing Canadian GAAP depreciation on capitalized exploration costs, partially offset by the expensing of exploration costs incurred. Deferred income tax liabilities and deferred income tax expense both increased by $0.5 million.(d)Reclassification of liabilities   To conform to IFRS presentation requirements, various liability balances have been reclassified.(e) Employee benefit plans     Ref. October 31, 2010Retrospective application of IAS 19 employee benefits(i)$5,417Reclassification of liabilitiesSee (d) (1,916)Net increase in employee benefit plans$3,501(i) Under Canadian GAAP, actuarial gains or losses for defined benefit plans that exceeded the corridor threshold (10% of the greater of the obligation and fair value of plan assets at the beginning of the period) were recognized over the remaining average service life of active employees. For IFRS purposes, the Company's accounting policy is to recognize its actuarial gains and losses immediately in other comprehensive income, and has retrospectively applied this approach at the date of transition.   For the nine months ended October 31, 2010, the accounting under IFRS resulted in a $0.6 million increase to the defined benefit plan obligation and a corresponding charge to other comprehensive income, reflecting the recognition of actuarial losses. A nominal change was made to deferred income tax liabilities.(f)Provisions          Ref.    October 31, 2010Remeasurement of the asset retirement obligation (i)   $2,416(i) The Company has elected to utilize the IFRS 1 optional exemption relating to "Changes in decommissioning, restoration and similar liabilities" in preparing its opening balance sheet under IFRS. There was no further remeasurement of the asset retirement obligation from the amount on February 1, 2010.(g)Deferred income tax liabilities           Ref.   October 31, 2010Recognition of new deferred tax balances  (i)  $(39,570)Derecognition of exploration costs capitalized  See (c)(i)   (5,016)Retrospective application of IAS 19 employee benefits  See (e)(i)   (2,565)Remeasurement of the asset retirement obligation  See (f)(i)   (985)Revaluation of deferred income tax liabilities  (ii)   (1,416)Total decrease in deferred income tax liabilities     $(49,552)(i) Under IFRS, in the determination of temporary differences, the carrying value of non-monetary assets and liabilities is translated into the functional currency at the historical rate and compared to its tax value translated into the functional currency at the current rate. The resulting temporary difference (measured in the functional currency) is then multiplied by the appropriate tax rate to determine the related deferred tax balance.   Under Canadian GAAP, in the determination of temporary differences related to non-monetary assets and liabilities, the temporary differences computed in local currency are multiplied by the appropriate tax rate. The resulting future income tax amount is then translated into the Company's functional currency if it is different from the local currency.   For the three months ended October 31, 2010, the accounting under IFRS resulted in an $8.3 million decrease in deferred income tax liabilities and an $8.3 million increase in deferred income tax recovery.   For the nine months ended October 31, 2010, the accounting under IFRS resulted in a $15.2 million decrease in deferred income tax liabilities and a $15.2 million increase in deferred income tax recovery. Net profit attributable to non-controlling interest also increased by $0.5 million.  (ii)For the three months ended October 31, 2010, the above IFRS adjustments to deferred income tax liabilities required a revaluation of the account balance, resulting in a $0.3 million reduction in deferred income tax liabilities and a corresponding increase in deferred income tax recovery.   For the nine months ended October 31, 2010, the above IFRS adjustments to deferred income tax liabilities required a revaluation of the account balance, resulting in a $1.4 million reduction in deferred income tax liabilities and a corresponding increase in deferred income tax recovery. Net profit attributable to non-controlling interest also increased nominally.(h) Retained earnings   The effect of all IFRS adjustments has increased (decreased) retained earnings as follows:   Ref.   October 31, 2010Reset of cumulative translation differences  See (i)(i)  $28,800Recognition of new deferred tax balances  See (g)(i)   37,513Derecognition of exploration costs capitalized  See (c)(i)   (11,668)Deferred tax impact on intra-group transfer of assets  See (b)(i)   2,293Remeasurement of the asset retirement obligation  See (f)(i)   (2,152)Revaluation of deferred income tax liabilities  See (g)(ii)   1,344Reacquisition of partnership units  See (j)(i)   1,241Net increase in retained earnings     $57,371(i)Accumulated other comprehensive income           Ref.   October 31, 2010Reset of cumulative translation differences  (i)  $(28,800)Retrospective application of IAS 19 employee benefits  See (e)(i)   (2,852)Total decrease in accumulated other comprehensive income     $(31,652)(i) The Company has elected to utilize the IFRS 1 optional exemption relating to "Cumulative translation differences" in preparing its opening balance sheet under IFRS. Through application of this exemption on transition date, existing cumulative translation differences as at February 1, 2010 were reset to zero and retained earnings was increased by $28.8 million.  (j)Non-controlling interest           Ref.   October 31, 2010Derecognition of exploration costs capitalized  See (c)(i)   (689)Remeasurement of the asset retirement obligation  See (f)(i)   (199)Recognition of new deferred tax balances  See (g)(i)   2,057Revaluation of deferred income tax liabilities  See (g)(ii)   72Reacquisition of partnership units  (i)   (1,241)Net change in non-controlling interest     $-(i) During the third quarter of fiscal 2011, the Company reacquired its 9% indirect interest in the Diavik Joint Venture from Kinross resulting in the reversal of previously recorded profit adjustments attributable to non-controlling interest.  (k) Cost of sales               Ref.   Three months endedOctober 31, 2010   Nine months endedOctober 31, 2010Reclassification of accretion expense  (i)  $(497)  $(1,495)Derecognition of exploration costs capitalized  See (c)(i)   (569)   (1,551)Decrease in cost of sales     $(1,066)  $(3,046)(i)    In accordance with IFRIC 1, "Changes in Existing Decommissioning, Restoration and Similar Liabilities", accretion expense is treated as interest expense whereas under Canadian GAAP it had been recorded as a component of cost of sales.  (l)Finance expenses               Ref.   Three months endedOctober 31, 2010   Nine months endedOctober 31, 2010Reclassification of accretion expense  See (k)(i)  $(497)  $(1,495)(m) Exploration costs               Ref.   Three months endedOctober 31, 2010   Nine months endedOctober 31, 2010Derecognition of exploration costs capitalized  See (c)(i)  $(187)  $(288)Reclassification of exploration costs      (25)   (25)Increase in exploration costs     $(212)  $(313)(n) Decrease in foreign exchange loss               Ref.   Three months endedOctober 31, 2010   Nine months endedOctober 31, 2010Reclassification of foreign exchange loss  (i)  $3,095  $10,398(i) Under Canadian GAAP, the foreign exchange difference from the translation of deferred taxes was presented within the foreign exchange gain/loss account.
