Harry Winston Diamond Corporation Announces Fiscal 2010 Fourth Quarter and
Year-End Results

TORONTO, March 31 /CNW/ - Harry Winston Diamond Corporation (TSX:HW, NYSE: HWD) (the "Company") today announced its fourth quarter and year-end results for the period ending January 31, 2010.

Fourth Quarter Highlights:

    
        -  Consolidated sales increased 13% to $133.7 million from $118.4
           million in the comparable quarter of the prior year.

        -  Rough diamond sales for the fourth quarter were 24% higher at
           $63.5 million compared to $51.1 million for the fourth quarter
           last year. This increase resulted from a combination of a 12%
           increase in the Company's achieved rough diamond prices and an 11%
           increase in volume of carats sold.

        -  Retail sales for the fourth quarter increased 4% to $70.2 million
           from $67.3 million for the comparable quarter of the prior year,
           reflecting the strength of the Asian market and offsetting
           continuing slowness in the US market.

        -  Rough diamond production during the calendar quarter from the
           Diavik Diamond Mine was significantly lower at 1.6 million carats,
           compared to 2.6 million carats for the fourth calendar quarter of
           last year (on a 100% basis). The decrease was due to a planned
           reduction in mining activity to reflect the softness in the rough
           diamond market earlier in the year.

        -  Consolidated net loss for the fourth quarter was $3.4 million or
           $0.04 per share compared to net loss of $73.0 million or $1.19 per
           share in the fourth quarter of the prior year. Included in
           consolidated net loss for the quarter was a net foreign exchange
           loss of $2.0 million or $0.03 per share primarily on future income
           tax liabilities compared to a net foreign exchange gain of
           $4.6 million or $0.08 per share in the comparable quarter of the
           prior year. The comparable quarter of the prior year also included
           a non-cash write-down of goodwill relating to the retail
           operations of $93.8 million or $1.53 per share.
    

Robert Gannicott, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer said:

"We end the year with a quarter that reflects recovery in both the rough diamond and jewelry businesses, but in a diamond business significantly changed from the years before the downturn. Prior to the downturn, diamond mine production was at extreme capacity and is not capable of returning to those levels, at least in the near-term. Rough diamond prices have already reacted and are back near the peaks of mid-2008. We anticipate further price increases as recovery in the US, and probably later in Europe, is added to ongoing growth in demand from China and India.

In 2007 barely 5% of our retail sales were to Asian customers outside of Japan. For this last year that same group accounts for 18% of our sales with an increase of nearly 200% between this and the prior fourth quarters. The momentum in retail sales has continued and accelerated into the new-year."

Annual Results Highlights:

    
        -  Consolidated sales were $412.9 million for the year compared to
           $609.2 million for the prior year, resulting in a 62% decrease in
           gross margin and a loss from operations of $22.0 million.
        -  Rough diamond sales of $187.9 million were 43% lower from the
           prior year. The decrease in sales resulted from a combination of a
           34% decrease in the Company's achieved rough diamond prices and a
           14% decrease in volume of carats sold during the year. This
           significant reduction in sales resulted in a loss from mining
           operations of $6.3 million for the year.
        -  Retail sales of $225.0 million and a loss from operations of $15.7
           million for the year, compares to $281.0 million and $2.5 million,
           respectively, in the prior year. Management continued to focus on
           cost reduction initiatives resulting in a $12.3 million decrease
           in selling, general and administrative expenses to $123.6 million
        -  Rough diamond production for the calendar year was 5.5 million
           carats compared to 9.2 million carats in the prior calendar year
           (on a 100% basis). This reduction was a planned response to the
           softness in the rough diamond market that included a six-week
           summer shut-down.
        -  Harry Winston Diamond Corporation recorded a consolidated net loss
           of $73.2 million or $0.99 per share for the year, compared to net
           earnings of $70.1 million or $1.15 per share in the prior year.
           Included in the consolidated net loss for the year was a net
           foreign exchange loss of $31.5 million or $0.43 per share
           primarily on future income tax liabilities compared to net foreign
           exchange gain of $59.1 million or $0.96 per share in the prior
           year. The current year consolidated net loss also includes a non-
           cash dilution loss of $34.8 million or $0.47 per share as a result
           of the investment by Kinross Gold Corporation in Harry Winston
           Diamond Limited Partnership, which holds the Company's 40%
           interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine. The prior year consolidated
           net earnings also included a non-cash write-down of goodwill
           relating to the retail operations of $93.8 million or $1.54 per
           share, and an after-tax gain on insurance settlement of $9.9
           million or $0.16 per share.

Fourth Quarter Results

Harry Winston Diamond Corporation recorded a fourth quarter consolidated net loss of $3.4 million or $0.04 per share compared to a net loss of $73.0 million or $1.19 per share in the fourth quarter of the prior year. Included in consolidated net loss for the quarter was a net foreign exchange loss of $2.0 million or $0.03 per share primarily on future income tax liabilities compared to a net foreign exchange gain of $4.6 million or $0.08 per share in the comparable quarter of the prior year. The comparable quarter of the prior year also included a non-cash write-down of goodwill relating to the retail operations of $93.8 million or $1.53 per share and an after-tax gain on insurance settlement of $9.9 million or $0.16 per share that resulted from the December 2008 robbery at the Harry Winston Paris salon.

Consolidated sales for the fourth quarter were $133.7 million compared to sales of $118.4 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year. Rough diamond sales for the quarter totalled $63.5 million compared to $51.1 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year resulting from a combination of a 12% increase in the Company's achieved rough diamond prices and an 11% increase in volume of carats sold. Rough diamond production during the quarter was significantly lower than the comparable quarter of the prior year due to a planned reduction in mining activity to reflect the softness in the rough diamond market earlier in the year. Retail sales for the fourth quarter were $70.2 million compared to $67.3 million for the comparable quarter of the prior year, an increase of 4%, reflecting the strength of the Asian market and offsetting continuing slowness in the US.

Annual Results

The Company recorded a consolidated net loss of $73.2 million or $0.99 per share for the year, compared to net earnings of $70.1 million or $1.15 per share in the prior year. The current year consolidated net loss includes a non-cash dilution loss of $34.8 million or $0.47 per share as a result of the investment by Kinross Gold Corporation in Harry Winston Diamond Limited Partnership, which holds the Company's 40% interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine. Also included in the consolidated net loss for the year was a net foreign exchange loss of $31.5 million or $0.43 per share primarily on future income tax liabilities compared to a net foreign exchange gain of $59.1 million or $0.96 per share in the prior year. In addition, the Company recognized a subsequent after-tax gain on insurance settlement of $2.1 million or $0.03 per share that resulted from the December 2008 robbery at the Harry Winston Paris salon, versus an after-tax gain on insurance settlement of $9.9 million or $0.16 per share recorded in the prior year. The prior year consolidated net earnings also included a non-cash write-down of goodwill relating to the retail operations of $93.8 million or $1.54 per share.

Consolidated sales were $412.9 million for the year compared to $609.2 million for the prior year, resulting in a 62% decrease in gross margin and a loss from operations of $22.0 million.

The mining segment recorded sales of $187.9 million, a 43% decrease from $328.2 million in the prior year. The decrease in sales resulted from a combination of a 34% decrease in the Company's achieved rough diamond prices and a 14% decrease in volume of carats sold during the year. The Company's share of rough diamond production for the calendar year was 2.2 million carats compared to 3.7 million carats in the prior year. As a response to the softness in the rough diamond market, production was reduced through a planned six-week summer shutdown from July 14, 2009 to August 24, 2009 (the "Summer Shutdown") and a general reduction in mining activity throughout the rest of the year. The significant reduction in sales resulted in a loss from operations for the year of $6.3 million.

The retail segment recorded sales of $225.0 million and a loss from operations of $15.7 million for the year, compared to $281.0 million and $2.5 million, respectively, in the prior year. Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased $12.3 million to $123.6 million for the year primarily as a result of the continued focus on cost reduction initiatives.

Market Commentary

The Diamond Market

During the first half of fiscal 2010, the rough diamond market experienced substantial price weakness as the industry was significantly impacted by the global financial crisis and the resulting economic slowdown. Stability returned to the rough diamond market during the third quarter of the year and prices strengthened considerably. This recovery continued in the fourth quarter, with rough diamond prices closing the year only slightly below the market highs achieved in fiscal 2009. Sustained demand from the Far East and India was coupled with a cautious renewal of interest from US retailers. The availability of credit improved as banks responded to the positive diamond market by reducing the tight credit restrictions imposed during the global financial crisis.

The price of polished diamonds, which experienced a less significant decline than rough diamond prices, has almost returned to previous levels and even surpassed these in certain popular ranges.

The outlook for the diamond market for fiscal 2011 is positive, with evidence of increased consumer demand in the Far East and India, coupled with the reawakening of the US retail sector, providing the basis for continued expected price growth in rough diamonds.

The Retail Jewelry Market

The luxury diamond jewelry market was also negatively affected by the depth and duration of the global economic recession. During the third quarter of the year, signs of recovery began to appear, particularly in Asia. In the US, many retailers reported a stronger holiday season than in the previous year as overall consumer sentiment appears to be more positive. The global economy continues to recover from the recession at varying rates depending on the region. During fiscal 2011, consumer demand for luxury diamond jewelry is expected to be strong in Asia, but the US and European markets are expected to experience a more modest recovery.

        The comparability of quarter-over-quarter results is impacted by
        seasonality for both the mining and retail 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 in each quarter. The quarterly results for the retail
        segment are also seasonal, with generally higher sales during the
        fourth quarter due to the holiday season. See "Segmented Analysis" on
        page 10 for additional information.
    

Year Ended January 31, 2010 Compared to Year Ended January 31, 2009

CONSOLIDATED NET EARNINGS

The Company recorded a consolidated net loss for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2010 of $73.2 million or $0.99 per share compared to net earnings of $70.1 million or $1.15 per share for the prior year. The current year consolidated net loss includes a non-cash dilution loss of $34.8 million or $0.47 per share as a result of the investment by Kinross in HWDLP, which holds the Company's 40% interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine. Also included in the consolidated net loss for the year was a net foreign exchange loss of $31.5 million or $0.43 per share primarily on future income tax liabilities compared to a net foreign exchange gain of $59.1 million or $0.96 per share in the prior year. In addition, the Company recognized a subsequent after-tax gain on insurance settlement of $2.1 million or $0.03 per share that resulted from the December 2008 robbery at the Harry Winston Paris salon, versus an after-tax gain on insurance settlement of $9.9 million or $0.16 per share recorded in the prior year. The prior year consolidated net earnings also included a non-cash write-down of goodwill relating to the retail operations of $93.8 million or $1.54 per share.

CONSOLIDATED SALES

The Company recorded sales for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2010 of $412.9 million compared to sales of $609.2 million for the prior year. On a segment basis, rough diamond sales accounted for $187.9 million of these sales compared to $328.2 million for the prior year. The Company completed eight rough diamond sales during the fiscal year compared to nine rough diamond sales in the prior year. Harry Winston's retail segment sales were $225.0 million, compared to $281.0 million for the prior year. See "Segmented Analysis" on page 10 for additional information.

CONSOLIDATED COST OF SALES AND GROSS MARGIN

The Company recorded cost of sales of $291.7 million for a gross margin of 29.3% during the fiscal year compared to $287.3 million and a gross margin of 52.8% during the prior year. The Company's cost of sales includes costs associated with mining, rough diamond sorting and retail sales activities. See "Segmented Analysis" on page 10 for additional information.

CONSOLIDATED SELLING, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES

The principal components of selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses include expenses for salaries and benefits, advertising, professional fees, rent and building related costs. The Company incurred SG&A expenses of $143.2 million for the fiscal year compared to $155.9 million in the prior year.

Included in SG&A expenses for the year are $19.5 million for the mining segment compared to $19.9 million for the prior year and $123.6 million for the retail segment compared to $136.0 million for the prior year. In the fourth quarter, SG&A expenses included executive severance of $4.2 million, $1.5 million of which was related to the mining segment and $2.7 million of which was related to the retail segment. For the retail segment, the decrease was due to an adjustment to incentive-based compensation, reduced advertising and selling expenses, savings from staff reductions and reductions in discretionary spending. See "Segmented Analysis" on page 10 for additional information.

CONSOLIDATED INCOME TAXES

The Company recorded a tax recovery of $18.8 million during the fiscal year, compared to a tax expense of $60.3 million in the prior year. The Company's effective income tax rate for the year, excluding Harry Winston's retail segment, is 15%, which is based on a statutory income tax rate of 30% adjusted for various items including Northwest Territories mining royalty, impact of foreign exchange, and earnings subject to tax different than the statutory rate.

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 twelve months ended January 31, 2010, the Company recorded an unrealized foreign exchange loss of $24.4 million on the revaluation of the Canadian denominated future income tax liability, as compared to an unrealized foreign exchange gain of $48.6 million recorded in the prior year. The unrealized foreign exchange loss is not deductible for Canadian income tax purposes.

During the twelve months ended January 31, 2010, the Company recorded a non-cash dilution loss of $34.8 million as a result of the investment by Kinross in HWDLP, which holds the Company's 40% interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine. The dilution loss is not deductible for Canadian tax purposes and hence no tax recovery was recorded against the dilution loss. In addition, a certain portion of the Company's loss before income taxes is allocated to Kinross as a result of its investment of an indirect interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine. As a result, the tax impact of the loss allocated to non-controlling interest is recorded as a reconciling item in the tax rate reconciliation.

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 2030.

The Company has provided a table below summarizing the movement from the statutory to the effective income tax rate as a percentage of earnings before taxes:

CONSOLIDATED INTEREST AND FINANCING EXPENSES

Interest and financing expenses of $11.5 million were incurred during the fiscal year compared to $20.5 million for the prior year. The Company repaid the full amount of $74.2 million of the mining segment's senior secured term and revolving credit facilities with the March 31, 2009 closing of the Kinross transaction. Interest and financing expenses were also impacted by a reduction in debt levels at the retail segment during the year.

CONSOLIDATED OTHER INCOME

Other income, which includes interest income on the Company's various bank balances, was $0.6 million during the year compared to $2.2 million in the prior year.

CONSOLIDATED INSURANCE SETTLEMENT

During the fiscal year, the Company received the remaining insurance settlement of $3.4 million pre-tax related to the December 2008 robbery at the Harry Winston Paris salon. In the prior year, the Company recognized a pre-tax gain of $16.7 million in the fourth quarter on settlement of the insurance claim relating to the December 2008 robbery. Also included in the prior year was a gain on insurance settlement of $0.5 million resulting from an excavator fire that occurred at the Diavik Diamond Mine in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006.

CONSOLIDATED DILUTION LOSS

The Company recorded a non-cash dilution loss of $34.8 million as a result of the investment by Kinross in HWDLP, which holds the Company's 40% interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine.

CONSOLIDATED IMPAIRMENT CHARGE

In the prior year, the Company determined that the fair value of its retail segment was below the carrying value and recorded a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $93.8 million.

CONSOLIDATED FOREIGN EXCHANGE

A net foreign exchange loss of $31.5 million was recognized during the fiscal year compared to a net foreign exchange gain of $59.1 million in the prior year. The current year loss relates principally to the revaluation of the Company's Canadian dollar denominated long-term future income tax liability as a result of the strengthening of the Canadian dollar against the US dollar at January 31, 2010. The Company's ongoing currency exposure relates primarily to expenses and obligations incurred in Canadian dollars, as well as the revaluation of certain Canadian monetary balance sheet amounts. The Company does not currently have any significant foreign exchange derivative instruments outstanding.

Three Months Ended January 31, 2010 Compared to Three Months Ended January 31, 2009

CONSOLIDATED NET EARNINGS

The Company recorded a fourth quarter consolidated net loss of $3.4 million or $0.04 per share compared to a net loss of $73.0 million or $1.19 per share in the fourth quarter of the prior year. Included in consolidated net loss for the quarter was a net foreign exchange loss of $2.0 million or $0.03 per share primarily on future income tax liabilities compared to a net foreign exchange gain of $4.6 million or $0.08 per share in the comparable quarter of the prior year. The comparable quarter of the prior year also included a non-cash write-down of goodwill relating to the retail operations of $93.8 million or $1.53 per share and an after-tax gain on insurance settlement of $9.9 million or $0.16 per share that resulted from the December 2008 robbery at the Harry Winston Paris salon.

CONSOLIDATED SALES

Sales for the fourth quarter totalled $133.7 million, consisting of rough diamond sales of $63.5 million and retail segment sales of $70.2 million. This compares to sales of $118.4 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year (rough diamond sales of $51.1 million and retail segment sales of $67.3 million). The Company held three rough diamond sales in the fourth quarter, compared to two in the comparable quarter of the prior year. See "Segmented Analysis" on page 10 for additional information.

CONSOLIDATED COST OF SALES AND GROSS MARGIN

The Company's fourth quarter cost of sales was $96.3 million for a gross margin of 28.0% compared to a cost of sales of $68.9 million and a gross margin of 41.8% for the comparable quarter of the prior year. The Company's cost of sales includes costs associated with mining, rough diamond sorting and retail sales activities. See "Segmented Analysis" on page 10 for additional information.

CONSOLIDATED SELLING, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES

The principal components of SG&A expenses include expenses for salaries and benefits, advertising, professional fees, rent and building related costs. The Company incurred SG&A expenses of $40.5 million for the fourth quarter, compared to $39.4 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year.

Included in SG&A expenses for the fourth quarter are $4.9 million for the mining segment compared to $4.4 million for the comparable quarter of the prior year and $35.6 million for the retail segment compared to $35.0 million for the comparable quarter of the prior year. For the mining and retail segments, the higher SG&A expenses were due to executive severance. See "Segmented Analysis" on page 10 for additional information.

CONSOLIDATED INCOME TAXES

The Company recorded a tax recovery of $5.8 million during the fourth quarter, compared to a tax expense of $7.1 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year. The Company's effective income tax rate for the quarter, excluding Harry Winston's retail segment, is 262%, which is based on a statutory income tax rate of 30% adjusted for various items including Northwest Territories mining royalty, impact of foreign exchange, and earnings subject to tax different than the statutory rate.

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 fourth quarter, the Canadian dollar strengthened against the US dollar. As a result, the Company recorded a foreign exchange loss of $2.2 million on the revaluation of the Company's Canadian dollar denominated future income tax liability. This compares to a foreign exchange gain of $3.9 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year. The unrealized foreign exchange loss is not deductible for Canadian income tax purposes.

During the fourth quarter, the Company also recorded a $3.8 million recovery in future Northwest Territories mining royalty as a result of an adjustment to the effective future royalty tax rate applicable to the Company as at the end of fiscal 2010. This adjustment is the primary cause of the unusual effective tax rate for the current quarter.

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 2030.

The Company has provided a table below summarizing the movement from the statutory to the effective income tax rate as a percentage of earnings before taxes:

CONSOLIDATED INTEREST AND FINANCING EXPENSES

Interest and financing expenses of $2.4 million were incurred during the fourth quarter compared to $5.0 million during the comparable quarter of the prior year. The Company repaid the full amount of $74.2 million of the mining segment's senior secured term and revolving credit facilities with the March 31, 2009 closing of the Kinross transaction. Interest and financing expenses were also impacted by a reduction in debt levels at the retail segment during the quarter.

CONSOLIDATED OTHER INCOME

Other income of $0.1 million was recorded during the quarter compared to $0.8 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year.

CONSOLIDATED INSURANCE SETTLEMENT

In the comparable quarter of the prior year, the Company recognized a pre-tax gain of $16.7 million on settlement of the insurance claim relating to the December 2008 robbery at the Harry Winston Paris salon. Also included the prior year was a gain on insurance settlement of $0.5 million resulting from an excavator fire that occurred at the Diavik Diamond Mine in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006.

CONSOLIDATED IMPAIRMENT CHARGE

In the prior year, the Company determined that the fair value of its retail segment was below the carrying value and recorded a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $93.8 million.

CONSOLIDATED FOREIGN EXCHANGE

A net foreign exchange loss of $2.0 million was recognized during the quarter compared to a net foreign exchange gain of $4.6 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year. The loss relates principally to the revaluation of the Company's Canadian dollar denominated long-term future income tax liability as a result of the strengthening of the Canadian dollar against the US dollar at January 31, 2010. The Company's ongoing currency exposure relates primarily to expenses and obligations incurred in Canadian dollars, as well as the revaluation of certain Canadian monetary balance sheet amounts. The Company does not currently have any significant foreign exchange derivative instruments outstanding.

Segmented Analysis

The operating segments of the Company include mining and retail segments.

Mining

The mining segment includes the production and sale of rough diamonds.

Year Ended January 31, 2010 Compared to Year Ended January 31, 2009

MINING SALES

Rough diamond sales for the year totalled $187.9 million compared to $328.2 million in the prior year resulting from a combination of a 34% decrease in the Company's achieved rough diamond prices and a 14% decrease in volume of carats sold. The Company held eight rough diamond sales during the fiscal year, compared to nine in the prior year and ten in normal years. Rough diamond prices have increased significantly over the market lows seen in the first quarter of this year but the average price for the year remains lower than the average price achieved in the prior year. In addition, the Company's achieved prices were particularly low in the first quarter as the sales mix contained a significant proportion of lower value goods carried in inventory from January 31, 2009. Rough diamond production during the year was significantly lower than the prior year due to the Summer Shutdown and a general reduction in mining activity to reflect the softness in the rough diamond market.

MINING COST OF SALES AND GROSS MARGIN

For the fiscal year ended January 31, 2010, cost of sales was $174.7 million resulting in a gross margin of 7.0%, compared to a cost of sales of $139.8 million and a gross margin of 57.4% in the prior year. The gross margin rate was significantly impacted by lower carat production spread across a largely fixed operating cost platform. The increase in cost of sales, attributable to mining costs, resulted primarily from the costs associated with preparing the A-418 kimberlite pipe for commercial production being capitalized in the first half of the prior year. These same activities have been recorded as direct operating costs in the current year. Also included in cost of sales is $9.8 million related to goods carried in inventory at January 31, 2009, which were sold subsequent to year end.

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 EXPENSES

SG&A expenses for the mining segment decreased by $0.4 million from the prior year.

Three Months Ended January 31, 2010 Compared to Three Months Ended January 31, 2009

MINING SALES

Rough diamond sales for the quarter totalled $63.5 million compared to $51.1 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year resulting from a combination of a 12% increase in the Company's achieved rough diamond prices and an 11% increase in volume of carats sold. The Company held three rough diamond sales in the fourth quarter compared to two in the comparable quarter of the prior year. Rough diamond production during the quarter was significantly lower than the comparable quarter of the prior year due to a planned reduction in mining activity to reflect the softness in the rough diamond market earlier in the year. Rough diamond prices continued to increase over the third quarter of the current year but remain lower than the highs achieved during fiscal 2009.

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 at each sales location 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 MARGIN

The Company's fourth quarter cost of sales was $57.0 million resulting in a gross margin of 10.2% compared to a cost of sales of $34.6 million and a gross margin of 32.3% in the comparable quarter of the prior year. The decrease in gross margin resulted primarily from lower carat production. 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 EXPENSES

SG&A expenses for the mining segment increased by $0.5 million from the comparable period of the prior year due to executive severance.

Mining Segment Operational Update

Annual production at the Diavik Diamond Mine was 5.5 million carats, consisting of 3.4 million carats produced from 0.58 million tonnes of ore from the A-154 South kimberlite pipe and 2.1 million carats produced from 0.78 million tonnes of ore from the A-418 kimberlite pipe. Annual production was 9.2 million carats during calendar 2008. The lower production in the current calendar year resulted from the Summer Shutdown and a planned reduction in mining activity to reflect the softness in the rough diamond market.

Ore production for the fourth calendar quarter consisted of 1.0 million carats produced from 0.16 million tonnes of ore from the A-154 South kimberlite pipe and 0.6 million carats produced from 0.21 million tonnes of ore from the A-418 kimberlite pipe. Rough diamond production was significantly lower than the comparable calendar quarter of the prior year due to a planned reduction in mining activity to reflect the softness in the rough diamond market earlier in the year. Average grade decreased to 4.2 carats per tonne in the fourth calendar quarter from 4.6 carats per tonne in the comparable quarter of the prior year. The decrease in average grade was primarily driven by a decrease in the proportion of ore sourced from the A-154 South kimberlite pipe.

Mining Segment Outlook

A mine plan and budget for calendar 2010 has been approved by Rio Tinto plc, the operator of the Diavik Diamond Mine, and the Company. The plan for calendar 2010 foresees Diavik Diamond Mine production of approximately 7.8 million carats from the processing of 2.1 million tonnes of ore.

PRICING

The rough diamond market continues to experience a robust recovery from the extreme market lows seen in the first quarter of the year and pricing has improved significantly. Future sustained price growth is anticipated in the rough diamond market during a period of diminishing rough diamond supply.

PRODUCTION

In calendar 2010, open pit mining from the A-418 kimberlite pipe supplemented by the A-154 South kimberlite pipe is expected to be the primary source of ore. Underground mining is scheduled to commence in the first calendar quarter, with ore sourced mainly from the A-154 South kimberlite pipe. Total open pit ore mined is expected to be 1.4 million tonnes, and total underground ore mined is expected to be 0.7 million tonnes.

Looking beyond calendar 2010, the objective is to utilize as much of the processing capability as possible with a combination of underground and open pit production. As underground capacity ramps up, open pit production from the A-418 kimberlite pipe will synchronously decline. A new mining technique is under consideration for the potential mining of the A-21 resource. The feasibility of this resource is now under review with the objective that it becomes the supplemental ore source to underground production beyond 2012. In addition, exploration work has identified extensions at depth to the A-418 and A-154 North kimberlite pipes. Extension of production beyond 2022 will be dependent on bringing resources and exploratory tonnages into reserves.

COST OF SALES

The Company expects cost of sales in fiscal 2011 to increase to approximately $265 million at an assumed average Canadian/US dollar exchange rate of $1.00. The increase over fiscal 2010 is due primarily to the cost of mining open pit synchronously with the high-cost start-up phase of underground mining. Of this increase, approximately half is related to an increase in non-cash costs. The Company expects that the cost of sales will decline as the velocity of underground mining increases and open pit waste stripping ends.

CAPITAL EXPENDITURES

For fiscal 2010, HWDLP's share of capital expenditures was $51 million, of which underground capital expenditures were $41 million. During fiscal 2011, HWDLP's 40% share of the planned capital expenditures is expected to be approximately $56 million at an assumed average Canadian/US dollar exchange rate of $1.00, of which $26 million relates to substantially completing underground development.

Retail

The retail 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.

Year Ended January 31, 2010 Compared to Year Ended January 31, 2009

RETAIL SALES

Sales for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2010 were $225.0 million compared to $281.0 million for the prior year, a decrease of 20%. Sales in Asia increased 11% to $77.0 million, US sales decreased 22% to $72.9 million and European sales decreased 36% to $75.1 million.

RETAIL COST OF SALES AND GROSS MARGIN

Cost of sales for the retail segment for the fiscal year was $117.1 million compared to $147.5 million for the prior year. Gross margin for the fiscal year was $107.9 million or 48.0% compared to $133.5 million or 47.5% for the prior year. Excluding the impact of sales of Harry Winston Inc. pre-acquisition inventory, gross margin for the fiscal year and the prior year would have been 48.5% and 49.4%, respectively.

RETAIL SELLING, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES

SG&A expenses decreased to $123.6 million from $136.0 million in the prior year. The decrease was due to an adjustment to incentive-based compensation, reduced advertising and selling expenses, savings from staff reductions and reductions in discretionary spending. SG&A expenses include depreciation and amortization expense of $13.0 million, compared to $12.6 million in the prior year.

Three Months Ended January 31, 2010 Compared to Three Months Ended January 31, 2009

RETAIL SALES

Sales for the fourth quarter were $70.2 million compared to $67.3 million for the comparable quarter of the prior year, an increase of 4%. Sales in Asia increased 52% to $26.9 million, US sales increased 40% to $26.2 million and European sales decreased 45% to $17.1 million.

RETAIL COST OF SALES AND GROSS MARGIN

Cost of sales for the retail segment for the fourth quarter was $39.2 million compared to $34.3 million for the comparable quarter of the prior year. Gross margin for the quarter was $30.9 million or 44.1% compared to $33.0 million or 49.0% for the fourth quarter of the prior year. Excluding the impact of sales of Harry Winston Inc. pre-acquisition inventory, gross margin for the fourth quarter and the comparable quarter of the prior year would have been 44.2% and 50.1%, respectively. The decrease in gross margin resulted primarily from a product mix comprising a higher proportion of lower margin sales.

RETAIL SELLING, GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES

SG&A expenses increased to $35.6 million from $35.0 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year. SG&A expenses include depreciation and amortization expense of $3.3 million, compared to $3.2 million in the comparable quarter of the prior year.

Retail Segment Operational Update

For the fiscal year, the retail segment recorded a sales decrease of 20%. Strong sales in Asia, including Japan, partially compensated for weak sales in the US and Europe. The retail segment successfully introduced the Harry Winston New York Collection, a series of jewelry and timepieces inspired by the glamour and architecture of some of New York's most famous landmarks. The retail segment implemented a series of measures during the year to significantly lower the cost structure and maximize liquidity, including reductions in discretionary expenses, inventory levels and capital expenditures. Harry Winston Inc. currently operates a network of 19 retail salons, including a new salon that opened in Singapore in July 2009.

Consumer demand for luxury goods increased in the fourth quarter, reversing the dramatic slowdown experienced during the first half of this fiscal year. During the fourth quarter, the retail segment recorded a 4% increase in sales versus the comparable quarter of the prior year. This continues a positive trend of improving sales as the global economy recovers from the economic downturn. The increase in sales was driven by positive consumer response to the introduction of the Harry Winston New York Collection, strong Asian sales and an improved holiday season in the US.

Retail Segment Outlook

Harry Winston Inc. expects sales in the luxury jewelry market to continue to strengthen. For fiscal 2011, the retail segment anticipates strong sales growth and underlying gross margins, resulting in an improvement in earnings from operations. The positive momentum from the holiday season is expected to continue as the global economic recovery gains traction. The emerging markets and Asia are expected to remain strong while the US and European markets continue to recover. The retail segment will continue to offer the highest quality products and services to its customers. The Company believes that the strength of the Harry Winston brand, supported by a global distribution network in prime locations and the introduction of new products, has positioned the retail segment for a higher level of sustained profitability over the next several years.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Working Capital

As at January 31, 2010, the Company had unrestricted cash and cash equivalents of $63.0 million and contingency cash collateral and cash reserves of $nil, compared to $16.7 million and $30.1 million, respectively, at January 31, 2009. The Company had cash on hand and balances with banks of $61.5 million and short-term investments of $1.5 million at January 31, 2010. Total cash resources were impacted by the $150.0 million net investment by Kinross and the subsequent repayment by the Company of the mining segment's $74.2 million senior secured term and revolving credit facilities on March 31, 2009. With the repayment of these facilities, the Company is no longer required to maintain a cash collateral and cash reserve account.

During the year ended January 31, 2010, the Company generated $44.2 million in cash from operations compared to $144.1 million in the prior year. The reduction in cash from operations resulted primarily from significantly lower net earnings compared to the prior year.

Working capital increased to $284.5 million at January 31, 2010 from $195.1 million at January 31, 2009. With the cash received from the closing of the Kinross transaction, the Company repaid in full the mining segment's senior secured credit facilities. This transaction increased the Company's working capital from that of January 31, 2009. Also during the fiscal year, the Company decreased accounts receivable by $43.7 million, decreased prepaid expenses and other current assets by $1.8 million, decreased inventory by $39.0 million, decreased accounts payable and accrued liabilities by $33.3 million, and decreased income taxes payable by $38.9 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, 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 in each quarter, along with the seasonality of sales and salon expansion in the retail 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.

With the closing of the Kinross transaction and the repayment in full of the mining segment's senior secured credit facilities, 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 Activities

On March 31, 2009, the Company issued 15.2 million of treasury shares at a price of $3.00 per share to Kinross, being approximately 19.9% of the Company's issued equity post the transaction. This transaction generated net proceeds of $44.7 million, net of transaction costs.

During the year, the Company repaid $74.2 million of the mining segment's senior secured term and revolving credit facilities with the closing of the Kinross transaction.

As at January 31, 2010, the Company's main retail subsidiary, Harry Winston Inc., had $140.0 million outstanding on its $250.0 million secured five-year revolving credit facility, which is used to fund salon inventory and capital expenditure requirements. This represents a decrease of $39.6 million from the amount outstanding at January 31, 2009.

Also included in long-term debt of the Company's retail operations is a 25-year loan agreement for CHF 17.5 million ($16.4 million) used to finance the construction of the Company's watch factory in Geneva, Switzerland. At January 31, 2010, $15.5 million was outstanding compared to $14.7 million at January 31, 2009. The bank has a secured interest in the factory building. In addition, the Company has a demand credit facility of CHF 2.0 million ($1.9 million), supported by a $2.0 million standby letter of credit, which is classified as bank advances. At January 31, 2010, $nil was outstanding, compared to $0.5 million at January 31, 2009.

Harry Winston Japan, K.K. maintains secured and unsecured credit agreements with three banks amounting to (Yen)2,030 million ($22.5 million). At January 31, 2010, $22.5 million had been drawn against these facilities and classified as bank advances compared to $23.1 million at January 31, 2009, $5.5 million of which was long term.

At January 31, 2010, no amounts were outstanding under the Company's revolving financing facility relating to its Belgian subsidiary, Harry Winston Diamond International N.V., or its Indian subsidiary, Harry Winston Diamond (India) Private Limited. At January 31, 2009, $18.4 million, $4.7 million and $1.5 million were drawn under the Company's revolving financing facilities relating to Harry Winston Diamond International N.V., Harry Winston Diamond (Israel) Limited and Harry Winston Diamond (India) Private Limited, respectively.

During the year, the Company distributed $9.7 million to Kinross in relation to its investment in HWDLP.

Investing Activities

As part of the Kinross transaction, Kinross also subscribed for new partnership units representing a 22.5% interest in HWDLP, for a subscription value of $125.1 million.

During the fiscal year, the Company purchased capital assets of $53.9 million, of which $50.9 million were purchased for the mining segment and $3.0 million for the retail segment.

Contractual Obligations

The Company has contractual payment obligations with respect to long-term debt 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 2010 to 2014, 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:

    (a) Long-term debt presented in the foregoing table includes current and
        long-term portions. Harry Winston Inc. maintains a credit agreement
        with a syndicate of banks for a $250.0 million five-year revolving
        credit facility. There are no scheduled repayments required before
        maturity. At January 31, 2010, $140.0 million had been drawn against
        this secured credit facility, which expires on March 31, 2013.

        Also included in long-term debt of Harry Winston Inc. is a 25-year
        loan agreement for CHF 17.5 million ($16.4 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
        ($3.3 million) loan and a CHF 14.0 million ($13.2 million) loan. The
        CHF 3.5 million loan bears interest at a rate of 3.9% 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 January 31, 2010,
        $15.5 million was outstanding on the loan agreement compared to
        $14.7 million at January 31, 2009. The bank has a secured interest in
        the factory building.

        The Company's first mortgage on real property has scheduled principal
        payments of approximately $0.2 million quarterly, and may be prepaid
        at any time. On January 31, 2010, $7.2 million was outstanding on the
        mortgage payable.

    (b) Interest on long-term debt is calculated at various fixed and
        floating rates. Projected interest payments on the current debt
        outstanding were based on interest rates in effect at January 31,
        2010, and have been included under long-term debt in the table above.
        Interest payments for the next twelve months are approximated to be
        $6.8 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 January 31, 2010 was $74.2 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 salons and
        office space, and long-term leases for property, land, office
        premises and a fuel tank farm for the Diavik Diamond Mine. Harry
        Winston Inc.'s New York salon lease expires on December 17, 2010 with
        an option to renew.

    (e) Capital lease obligations represent future minimum annual rentals
        under non-cancellable capital leases for Harry Winston Inc. retail
        exhibit space.
    

Dividend

On March 19, 2009, the Company announced that it had suspended its dividend for the time being.

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

The Company has designed a system of disclosure controls and procedures to provide reasonable assurance that material information relating to Harry Winston Diamond Corporation, including its consolidated subsidiaries, is made known to them by others within those entities, particularly during the period in which the Company's annual filings are being prepared. In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, the management of the Company recognized that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives. The management of Harry Winston Diamond Corporation was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures. The result of the inherent limitations in all control systems means no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, have been detected.

The management of Harry Winston Diamond Corporation has evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of its disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by the Annual Report. Based on that evaluation, management has concluded that these disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Canada by Multilateral Instrument 52-109, Certification of Disclosure in Issuers' Annual and Interim Filings, and in the United States by Rule 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act"), are effective as of January 31, 2010, to ensure that information required to be disclosed in reports that the Company will file or submit under Canadian securities legislation and the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in those rules and forms.

Internal Control over Financial Reporting

The certifying officers of Harry Winston Diamond Corporation have designed a system of internal control over financial reporting to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements in accordance with Canadian GAAP and the requirements of the Securities and Exchange Commission in the United States, as applicable. Management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting for the Company, including its consolidated subsidiaries.

Management has evaluated the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting using the framework and criteria established in the Internal Control - Integrated Framework, issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. Based on this evaluation, management has concluded that internal control over financial reporting was effective as of January 31, 2010.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010, there were no changes in the Company's internal control over financial reporting that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company's internal control over financial reporting.

Critical Accounting Estimates

Management is often required to make judgments, assumptions and estimates in the application of Canadian GAAP 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. The following discussion outlines the accounting policies and practices that are critical to determining Harry Winston Diamond Corporation's financial results.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of earnings, revenues and expenses during the reporting year. Significant areas requiring the use of management estimates relate to the determination of impairment of capital assets, intangible assets, goodwill and deferred mineral property costs, estimation of future site restoration costs and future income taxes. Financial results as determined by actual events could differ from those estimated.

The most significant estimates relate to the valuation of deferred mineral property costs and future site restoration costs. Management makes significant estimates related to the measurement of reclamation obligations and the timing of the related cash flows and future income tax liabilities. Such timing and measurement uncertainty could have a material effect on the reported results of operations and the financial position of the Company.

Actual results could differ materially from those estimates in the near term.

Deferred Mineral Property Costs and Mineral Reserves

Harry Winston Diamond Corporation capitalizes all direct development and pre-production costs relating to mineral properties and amortizes such costs on a unit-of-production basis upon commencement of commercial production relating to the underlying property. Deferred mineral property costs are amortized based on estimated proven and probable reserves at the property.

On an ongoing basis, the Company evaluates deferred costs relating to each property to ensure that the estimated recoverable amount exceeds the carrying value. Based on the Diavik Diamond Mine's latest projected open pit and underground life from the mine plan and diamond prices from the Diavik Project feasibility study, there is no requirement to write down deferred mineral property costs.

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. Reserve estimates can be revised upward or downward based on the results of future drilling, testing or production levels, and diamond prices. Changes in reserve estimates can impact the evaluation of net recoverable deferred costs.

Future Site Restoration Costs

The Company has obligations for future site restoration costs. The Company records the fair value of an asset retirement obligation as a liability in the period in which it incurs a legal obligation associated with the retirement of tangible long-lived assets that result from the acquisition, construction, development and/or normal use of the assets. The fair value of the liability is added to the carrying amount of the associated asset and this additional carrying amount is depreciated over the life of the asset. Subsequent to the initial measurement of the asset retirement obligation, the obligation is adjusted at the end of each period to reflect the passage of time and changes in the estimated future cash flows underlying the obligation. If the obligation is settled for other than the carrying amount of the liability, the Company will recognize a gain or loss on settlement. As at January 31, 2010, estimates of all legal obligations at the joint venture level have been included in the consolidated financial statements of the Company. Processes to track and monitor these obligations are carried out at the joint venture level.

Intangible Assets

Certain of the Company's intangible assets are recorded at fair value upon acquisition and have an indefinite useful life. The Company assesses impairment of such intangible assets by determining whether the carrying value exceeds the fair value. If the fair value is determined to be less than the net book value, the excess of the net book value over the fair value is charged to earnings in the year in which such impairment is determined by management. These approaches involve significant management judgment and, as a result, are subject to change.

Risks and Uncertainties

Harry 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 Mining

The 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 DDMI

HWDLP holds an undivided 40% interest in the assets, liabilities and expenses of the Diavik Diamond Mine and the Diavik group of mineral claims. HWDLP is owned 77.5% by the Company and 22.5% by Kinross. 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.

Agreement with Kinross

Under the amended partnership agreement of HWDLP, the general partner is entitled to request that the partners in the partnership advance funds to the partnership pro rata based on their holdings of partnership units for the purpose of satisfying the partnership's obligations under various contractual commitments, including those deriving from the joint arrangement between DDMI and the partnership. The partners may unanimously determine to fund any cash call by way of a loan rather than equity contribution. If a partner fails to contribute its proportion of funds with respect to a cash call, the non-defaulting partner or partners will have the option, but not the obligation, to fund the defaulting partner's portion of the cash call by way of equity contribution or loan or a combination of the two, provided that if any equity contribution is made, the non-defaulting partner's interest in the partnership will be increased proportionately through the issuance of additional partnership units.

As DDMI, under the joint arrangement between DDMI and the partnership, is able to determine the timing and scope of future project capital expenditures and to impose capital expenditure requirements on the Company that the Company may not have sufficient cash to meet, the Company's interest in HWDLP could be diluted under the amended partnership agreement as a result of a failure by the Company to meet cash call requirements imposed by the amended partnership agreement.

Diamond Prices and Demand for Diamonds

The profitability of the Company is dependent upon production from the Diavik Diamond Mine and on the results of the operations of its retail 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, prolonged credit market disruptions or the occurrence of further terrorist 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 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 Liquidity

The Company's liquidity requirements fluctuate from quarter to quarter depending on, among other factors, the seasonality of production at the Diavik Diamond Mine, 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 in each quarter, along with the seasonality of sales and salon expansion in the retail 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 Environment

The Company's financial results are tied to the global economic environment. 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 could cause the Company to experience further revenue declines across both of its business segments, and a decrease in the availability of credit, which could have a material adverse effect on the Company's business prospects or financial condition.

Currency Risk

Currency 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 future 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 such 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 Permits

The 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 Risks

The 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 which 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 Change

Canada 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 Estimates

The 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. 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.

Insurance

The 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, 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 Costs

The 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 unexpectedly 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 Employees

Production 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 retail segment.

Expansion of the Existing Salon Network

A key component of the Company's retail strategy in recent years has been the expansion of its salon network. 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. 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 retail 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.

Competition in the Luxury Jewelry Segment

The Company is exposed to competition in the retail diamond 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, then the Company's results of operations will be adversely affected.

Changes in Accounting Policies

Goodwill and Intangibles Assets

On February 1, 2008, the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants ("CICA") issued Handbook Section 3064, "Goodwill and Intangible Assets". This Section establishes revised standards for the recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of goodwill and intangible assets. The Company adopted the new standard effective February 1, 2009. This standard has had no material impact on the consolidated financial statements.

Credit Risk and the Fair Value of Financial Assets and Liabilities

In January 2009, the CICA issued EIC-173, "Credit Risk and the Fair Value of Financial Assets and Liabilities". This abstract requires companies to take each counterparty's credit risk into account when measuring the fair value of financial assets and liabilities, including derivatives. The Company applied this EIC abstract commencing the quarter ended April 30, 2009. This abstract has had no material impact on the consolidated financial statements.

Mining Exploration Costs

In March 2009, the CICA issued EIC-174, "Mining Exploration Costs", which provides guidance on the capitalization of exploration costs related to mining properties and the subsequent impairment review of capitalized exploration costs. The Company applied this EIC abstract commencing the quarter ended April 30, 2009. This abstract has had no material impact on the consolidated financial statements.

Financial Instruments - Disclosures

In June 2009, the CICA amended Section 3862, "Financial Instruments - Disclosures", to enhance disclosure requirements for fair value measurement of financial instruments and liquidity risk. These amendments require fair value measurements to be classified using a fair value hierarchy that reflects the significance of the inputs used in making the fair value measurements as follows:

    
        Level 1 - valuation techniques based on quoted prices (unadjusted) in
        active markets for identical assets or liabilities;

        Level 2 - valuation techniques based on inputs other than quoted
        prices included in Level 1 that are observable for the asset or
        liability, either directly (as prices) or indirectly (derived from
        prices); and

        Level 3 - valuation techniques based on unobservable market inputs
        (involves assumptions and estimates by management of how market
        participants would price the assets or liabilities).
    

The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to Level 1 inputs and the lowest priority to Level 3 inputs. Section 3862 also requires an entity to disclose for each class of financial instrument, any significant transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy and the reasons for those transfers. For fair value measurements in Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy, a reconciliation from the beginning balances to the ending balances is required, disclosing transfers into or out of Level 3 (attributable to changes in the observability of market data) and the reasons for those transfers. This amendment has resulted in additional disclosures in note 18 of the Company's consolidated financial statements.

Financial Instruments - Recognition and Measurement

In August 2009, the CICA issued amendments to Section 3855, "Financial Instruments - Recognition and Measurement". Under the amendments, reclassification of financial assets out of assets held for trading and assets held for sale categories into the loans and receivables category is now permitted under certain circumstances; the definition of loans and receivables category has been updated so that debt securities that are not quoted in an active market are permitted to be classified in the loans and receivables category; impairment losses relating to available for sale debt instruments must be reversed if the fair value of the instrument increases due to an event occurring after the loss was recognized. These amendments have had no material impact on the consolidated financial statements.

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

Equity

In August 2009, the CICA amended Section 3251, "Equity". The amendments apply only to entities that have adopted Section 1602, "Non-Controlling Interests". The amendments require separate presentation on the consolidated statements of earnings and comprehensive income of earnings attributable to owners of the Company and those attributable to non-controlling interests. The amendments require that non-controlling interests be presented separately as a component of equity. As the Company has not adopted section 1602, which is mandatory for fiscal years beginning on or after January 1, 2011, the amendments are not applicable to the Company in the current fiscal year.

Business Combinations

In December 2008, the CICA issued Handbook Section 1582, "Business Combinations", which applies prospectively to business combinations with an acquisition date on or after January 1, 2011. The section provides the Canadian equivalent to IFRS 3, "Business Combinations", and is expected to have a material impact on how prospective business combinations are accounted for by requiring additional use of fair value measurements, recognition of additional assets and liabilities and increased disclosure.

International Financial Reporting Standards

In February 2008, the Canadian Accounting Standards Board confirmed that publicly accountable enterprises will be required to adopt International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") in place of Canadian GAAP for financial periods beginning on or after January 1, 2011. Accordingly, commencing February 1, 2011, the Company will convert to IFRS and prepare its first financial statements in accordance with IFRS for the three-month period ended April 30, 2011, with comparative information also prepared under IFRS.

IFRS 1, "First Time Adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards" ("IFRS 1"), provides mandatory guidance that generally requires full retrospective application of IFRS and interpretations from the date of transition, February 1, 2010. All material accounting differences between Canadian GAAP and IFRS will be eliminated generally through opening retained earnings at the date of transition. However, IFRS 1 allows certain optional exemptions in the application of particular standards to prior periods in order to assist companies with the transition process. For the transition year, which commenced February 1, 2010, the Company will continue to report under Canadian GAAP and will be required to capture comparable IFRS financial information.

The conversion project from Canadian GAAP to IFRS is led by finance management, and includes representatives from various areas of the Company as necessary to plan for and achieve a smooth transition. The Company has engaged the services of a third party expert advisor to assist. Regular progress reporting to senior management and to the Audit Committee on the status of the IFRS conversion project is in place. The conversion project consists of three phases:

    
        Assessment Phase - This phase involves a review of accounting
        differences between Canadian GAAP and IFRS; an evaluation of IFRS 1
        exemptions for first time IFRS adopters; and a high-level impact
        assessment on systems and business processes. This phase was
        completed during the third quarter of fiscal 2010.

        Design Phase - This phase involves prioritizing and resolving
        accounting treatment issues; quantifying the impact of converting to
        IFRS; reviewing and approving accounting policy choices; performing a
        detailed impact assessment on systems and processes; designing system
        and business process changes; developing IFRS training material; and
        drafting IFRS financial statement content. The Company is currently
        progressing through its design phase activities.

        Implementation Phase - This phase involves changes to systems and
        business processes; determining the opening IFRS transition balance
        sheet; dual accounting under both Canadian GAAP and IFRS; and
        preparing detailed reconciliations of Canadian GAAP to IFRS financial
        statements. The Company commenced the implementation phase of its
        conversion project towards the end of fiscal 2010.
    

EXPECTED ACCOUNTING DIFFERENCES BETWEEN CANADIAN GAAP AND IFRS

The Company has identified the following major areas where the accounting differences between Canadian GAAP and existing IFRS may have an impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements. The accounting differences described below should not be regarded as a complete list of areas that may be impacted by the transition to IFRS.

    
        Property, plant and equipment - Separate accounting for components of
        property, plant and equipment is broader and more vigorously applied
        under IFRS. Costs are allocated to significant parts of an asset if
        the useful lives differ, and each part is then separately
        depreciated.

        Exploration and evaluation - IFRS 6, "Exploration for and Evaluation
        of Mineral Resources", allows an entity to either develop a new
        accounting policy for exploration and evaluation expenditures
        consistent with IFRS requirements or continue to follow the Company's
        existing policy.

        Income taxes - Existing IFRS requires the recognition of deferred
        taxes in situations not required under Canadian GAAP. Specifically, a
        deferred tax liability (asset) is recognized for exchange gains and
        losses relating to foreign non-monetary assets and liabilities that
        are remeasured into the functional currency using historical exchange
        rates. Similar timing differences are also recognized for the
        differences in tax bases between jurisdictions as a result of intra-
        group transfer of assets.

        Asset impairment - Under IFRS, assets are tested for impairment
        either individually or within cash generating units. This approach
        reflects the smallest group of assets capable of generating largely
        independent cash inflows, which may differ from asset groups under
        Canadian GAAP. Impairment charges relating to long-lived assets may
        be more frequent under IFRS as the cash flow test for recoverability
        is based on a one-step discounted cash flow approach. Impairment
        under IFRS is recognized if the carrying amount exceeds the higher of
        fair value less cost to sell, or value in use. Reversal of impairment
        charges is required under IFRS if the circumstances leading to the
        impairment have changed.
    

The Company also anticipates a significant increase in disclosure within its consolidated financial statements resulting from the adoption of IFRS.

In a recent announcement, the International Accounting Standards Board updated its estimated publication dates for new or amended IFRS to late 2010 and 2011. It now seems likely that there will be a relatively stable platform of IFRS during the Company's transition year ending January 31, 2011. The Company will continue to monitor these international accounting developments.

At this time, the impact of the IFRS conversion project on the Company's financial position and results of operations is not reasonably determinable or estimable.

                 Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

                    YEARS ENDED JANUARY 31, 2010 AND 2009
           (TABULAR AMOUNTS IN THOUSANDS OF UNITED STATES DOLLARS,
                         EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE NOTED)
    

NOTE 1:

Nature of Operations

Harry Winston Diamond Corporation (the "Company") is a specialist diamond company focusing on the mining and retail segments of the diamond industry.

The Company's most significant 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. As a result of the strategic investment by Kinross Gold Corporation ("Kinross") of Toronto, Canada, described below, HWDLP is 77.5% owned by the Company and 22.5% owned by Kinross. Kinross's 22.5% ownership is reported in the consolidated financial statements as part of non-controlling interest.

On March 31, 2009, Kinross made a net investment of $150.0 million to acquire an indirect interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine and a direct equity stake in the Company. Kinross subscribed for 15.2 million of the Company's treasury shares at a price of $3.00 per share, being approximately 19.9% of the Company's issued equity post the transaction. Kinross also subscribed for new partnership units representing a 22.5% interest in HWDLP, for a net effective subscription value of $103.7 million. With the closing of the Kinross transaction, the Company's economic interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine is 31%.

The Company also owns Harry Winston Inc., the premier fine jewelry and watch retailer. The results of Harry Winston Inc., located in New York City, US, are consolidated in the financial statements of the Company.

Certain comparative figures have been reclassified to conform with the current year's presentation.

NOTE 2:

Significant Accounting Policies

The consolidated financial statements are prepared by management in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in Canada. The principal accounting policies presently followed by the Company are summarized as follows:

    
    (a) Principles of Consolidation

        The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the
        Company and all of its subsidiaries as well as its proportionate
        share of unincorporated joint arrangements.

        SUBSIDIARIES

        A subsidiary is an entity that is controlled by the Company. The
        consolidated financial statements include all the assets,
        liabilities, revenues, expenses and cash flows of the Company and its
        subsidiaries after eliminating intercompany balances and
        transactions. For partly owned subsidiaries, the net assets and net
        earnings attributable to minority shareholders are presented as
        minority interests on the consolidated balance sheets and
        consolidated statements of earnings.

        JOINT ARRANGEMENTS THAT ARE NOT ENTITIES ("JOINT ARRANGEMENTS")

        The Diavik Joint Venture is an unincorporated joint arrangement.
        HWDLP owns an undivided 40% ownership interest in the assets,
        liabilities and expenses of the Joint Venture. The Company records
        its proportionate interest in the assets, liabilities and expenses of
        the Joint Venture in its consolidated financial statements with a
        one-month lag. The accounting policies described below include those
        of the Joint Venture. With the closing of the Kinross transaction,
        the Company's economic interest in the Diavik Diamond Mine is 31%.

    (b) Measurement Uncertainty

        The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally
        accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") requires management to make
        estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets
        and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities
        at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of
        earnings, revenues and expenses during the reporting year.
        Significant areas requiring the use of management estimates relate to
        the determination of impairment of capital assets, intangible assets,
        goodwill and deferred mineral property costs, estimation of future
        site restoration costs and future income taxes. Financial results as
        determined by actual events could differ from those estimated.

    (c) Revenue Recognition

        Revenue from rough diamond sales is recognized upon delivery of
        merchandise when the customer takes ownership and assumes risk of
        loss, persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, the Company's
        price to the customer is fixed or determinable and collection of the
        resulting receivable is reasonably assured.

        Revenue from fine jewelry and watch sales is recognized upon delivery
        of merchandise when the customer takes ownership and assumes risk of
        loss, collection of the relevant receivable is probable, persuasive
        evidence of an arrangement exists and the sales price is fixed or
        determinable. Sales are reported net of returns.

    (d) Cash Resources

        Cash and cash equivalents, and cash collateral and cash reserves,
        consist of cash on hand, balances with banks and short-term money
        market instruments (with a maturity on acquisition of less than
        90 days), and are carried at fair value.

        Funds in cash collateral and cash reserves are maintained as
        prescribed under the Company's debt financing arrangements and will
        become available to Harry Winston Diamond Corporation for general
        corporate purposes and for debt servicing as prescribed by the terms
        of credit facility agreements.

    (e) Trade Accounts Receivable

        Trade accounts receivable are recorded at the invoiced amount and
        generally do not bear interest. The allowance for doubtful accounts
        is the Company's best estimate of the amount of probable credit
        losses in the existing accounts receivable. The Company reviews its
        allowance for doubtful accounts monthly. Account balances are written
        off against the allowance after all means of collection have been
        exhausted and the potential for recovery is considered remote.

    (f) Inventory

        Rough diamond inventory is recorded at the lower of cost or net
        realizable value. Cost is determined on an average cost basis,
        including production costs and value-added processing activity.

        Merchandise inventory is recorded at the lower of cost or net
        realizable value and includes fine jewelry and watches. Included in
        merchandise inventory are production costs such as material, labour
        and overhead costs.

        Supplies inventory is recorded at the lower of cost or net realizable
        value. Supplies inventory includes consumables and spare parts to be
        maintained at the Diavik Diamond Mine site and at the Company's
        sorting and distribution facility locations, and raw materials used
        in the manufacturing of retail merchandise inventory.

    (g) Deferred Mineral Property Costs

        All direct costs relating to mineral properties, including mineral
        claim acquisition costs, exploration and development expenditures in
        the pre-production stage, ongoing property exploration expenditures,
        pre-production operating costs net of any recoveries, interest, and
        amortization, are capitalized and accumulated on a property-by-
        property basis.

        The costs of deferred mineral properties from which there is
        production are amortized using the unit-of-production method based on
        carats of diamonds recovered during the period relative to estimated
        proven and probable ore reserves. The Company does not include
        estimates of indicated or inferred resources in its calculation of
        ore reserves.

        General exploration expenditures which do not relate to specific
        resource properties are expensed in the period incurred.

        On an ongoing basis, the Company evaluates each property based on
        results to date to determine the nature of exploration and
        development activities that are warranted in the future. If there is
        little prospect of the Joint Venture continuing to explore or develop
        a property, the deferred costs related to that property are written
        down to the estimated fair value.

    (h) Capital Assets

        Capital assets are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and
        amortization. Depreciation and amortization are provided using the
        units-of-production method or straight-line method as appropriate.
        The units-of-production method is applied to a substantial portion of
        Diavik Diamond Mine capital assets and, depending on the asset, is
        based on carats of diamonds recovered during the period relative to
        the estimated proven and probable ore reserves of the ore deposit
        being mined, or to the total ore deposit. The Company does not
        include estimates of indicated or inferred resources in its
        calculation of ore reserves. Other capital assets are depreciated
        using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the
        related assets, which are as follows:

        Asset                                   Estimated useful life (years)
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Buildings                                                      10-40
        Machinery and mobile equipment                                  3-10
        Computer equipment and software                                    3
        Furniture and equipment                                         2-10
        Leasehold and building improvements                         Up to 20
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------

        Amortization for mine related assets was charged to deferred mineral
        property costs during the pre-commercial production stage.

        Maintenance and repair costs are charged to earnings while
        expenditures for major renewals and improvements are capitalized.

        The recoverability of the amounts shown for the Diavik Diamond Mine
        capital assets is dependent upon the continued existence of
        economically recoverable reserves, upon maintaining title and
        beneficial interest in the property, and upon future profitable
        production or proceeds from disposition of the diamond properties.
        The amounts representing Diavik Diamond Mine capital assets do not
        necessarily represent present or future values.

        Upon the disposition of capital assets, the accumulated amortization
        is deducted from the original cost and any gain or loss is reflected
        in current earnings.

    (i) Intangible Assets

        Intangible assets acquired individually or as part of a group of
        other assets are initially recognized and measured at cost. The cost
        of a group of intangible assets acquired in a transaction, including
        those acquired in a business combination that meet the specified
        criteria for recognition apart from goodwill, is allocated to the
        individual assets acquired based on their fair values at acquisition.

        Intangible assets with finite useful lives are amortized on a
        straight-line basis over their useful lives as follows:

        Asset                                   Estimated useful life (years)
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Wholesale distribution network                                    10
        Store leases                                                 Up to 9
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------

        The amortization methods and estimated useful lives of intangible
        assets are reviewed annually.

        Intangible assets with indefinite useful lives are not amortized and
        are tested for impairment annually, or more frequently if events or
        changes in circumstances indicate that the asset might be impaired.
        The impairment test compares the carrying amount of the intangible
        asset with its fair value, and an impairment loss is recognized in
        income for the excess, if any.

    (j) Other Assets

        Other assets include depreciable assets amortized over a period not
        exceeding ten years.

    (k) Future Site Restoration Costs

        The Company records the fair value of any asset retirement obligation
        as a long-term liability in the year in which the related
        environmental disturbance occurs, based on the net present value of
        the estimated future costs. The fair value of the liability is added
        to the carrying amount of the deferred mineral property and this
        additional carrying amount is amortized over the life of the asset
        based on units of production. The obligation is adjusted periodically
        to reflect the passage of time and changes in the estimated future
        cash flows underlying the obligation. If the obligation is settled
        for other than the carrying amount of the liability, the Company will
        recognize a gain or loss on settlement.

    (l) Foreign Currency Translation

        The functional currency of the Company is the US dollar. At year end,
        monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are
        translated to US dollars at exchange rates in effect at the balance
        sheet date and non-monetary assets and liabilities are translated at
        rates of exchange in effect when the assets were acquired or
        obligations were incurred. Revenues and expenses are translated at
        rates in effect at the time of the transactions. Foreign exchange
        gains and losses are included in earnings.

        For certain subsidiaries of the Company where the functional currency
        is not the US dollar, the assets and liabilities of these
        subsidiaries are translated at the rate of exchange in effect at the
        balance sheet date. Revenues and expenses are translated at the rate
        of exchange in effect at the time of the transactions. Foreign
        exchange gains and losses are accumulated in other comprehensive
        income under shareholders' equity.

    (m) Income and Mining Taxes

        The Company accounts for income taxes under the asset and liability
        method. Under this method, future tax assets and liabilities are
        recognized for future tax consequences attributable to differences
        between the financial statement carrying value and the tax basis of
        assets and liabilities.

        Future tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted or
        substantively enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income
        in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be
        recovered or settled. A reduction in respect of the benefit of a
        future tax asset (a valuation allowance) is recorded against any
        future tax asset if it is not likely to be realized. The effect on
        future tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is
        recognized in earnings in the year during which the change in tax
        rates is considered to be substantively enacted.

    (n) Stock-Based Compensation

        The Company applies the fair value method to all grants of stock
        options.

        The fair value of options granted is estimated at the date of grant
        using a Black-Scholes option pricing model incorporating assumptions
        regarding risk-free interest rates, dividend yield, volatility factor
        of the expected market price of the Company's stock, and a weighted
        average expected life of the options. The estimated fair value of the
        options is recorded as an expense on a straight-line basis over the
        vesting period, with an offsetting credit to shareholders' equity.
        Any consideration received on amounts attributable to stock options
        is credited to share capital.

    (o) Restricted and Deferred Share Unit Plans

        The Restricted and Deferred Share Unit ("RSU" and "DSU") Plans are
        full value phantom shares that mirror the value of Harry Winston
        Diamond Corporation's publicly traded common shares. Grants under the
        RSU Plan are on a discretionary basis to employees of the Company
        subject to Board of Director approval. Each RSU grant vests on the
        third anniversary of the grant date, subject to special rules for
        death and disability. Grants under the DSU Plan are awarded to non-
        executive directors of the Company. Each DSU grant vests immediately
        on the grant date.

    (p) Post Retirement Benefits

        The expected costs of post retirement benefits under defined benefit
        arrangements are charged to earnings over the service lives of
        employees entitled to those benefits. Variations from the regular
        cost are spread on a straight-line basis over the expected average
        remaining service lives of relevant current employees. The plan
        assets and liabilities are valued annually by qualified actuaries.

    (q) Financial Instruments

        From time to time, the Company may use a limited number of derivative
        financial instruments to manage its foreign currency and interest
        rate exposure. For a derivative to qualify as a hedge at inception
        and throughout the hedged period, the Company formally documents the
        nature and relationships between the hedging instruments and hedged
        items, as well as its risk-management objectives, strategies for
        undertaking the various hedge transactions and method of assessing
        hedge effectiveness. Financial instruments qualifying for hedge
        accounting must maintain a specified level of effectiveness between
        the hedge instrument and the item being hedged, both at inception and
        throughout the hedged period. Gains and losses resulting from any
        ineffectiveness in a hedging relationship must be recognized
        immediately in net income. The Company may also have a limited number
        of embedded derivatives relating to the Diavik Diamond Mine.
        Derivatives embedded in non-derivative host contracts are recognized
        separately unless closely related to the host contract. The Company
        does not use derivatives for trading or speculative purposes.

    (r) Basic and Diluted Earnings per Share

        Basic earnings per share are computed by dividing net earnings (loss)
        by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the year.

        Diluted earnings per share are prepared using the treasury stock
        method to compute the dilutive effect of options and warrants. The
        treasury stock method assumes that the exercise of any "in-the-money"
        options with the option proceeds would be used to purchase common
        shares at the average market value for the year. Options with an
        average market value for the year higher than the exercise price are
        not included in the calculation of diluted earnings per share as such
        options are not dilutive.

    (s) Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

        Long-lived assets, including property, plant and equipment and
        purchased intangibles subject to amortization, are reviewed for
        impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that
        the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable.
        Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a
        comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to estimated
        undiscounted future cash flows expected to be generated by the asset.
        If the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its estimated future cash
        flows, an impairment charge is recognized by the amount by which the
        carrying amount of the asset exceeds the fair value of the asset.
        Assets to be disposed of by sale would be separately presented in the
        balance sheet and reported at the lower of the carrying amount or
        fair value less costs to sell, and are no longer depreciated. The
        assets and liabilities of a disposed group classified as held for
        sale would be presented separately in the appropriate asset and
        liability sections of the balance sheet.

    (t) Adoption of New Accounting Standards and Developments

        GOODWILL AND INTANGIBLE ASSETS

        On February 1, 2008, the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants
        ("CICA") issued Handbook Section 3064, "Goodwill and Intangible
        Assets". This Section establishes revised standards for the
        recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of goodwill and
        intangible assets. The Company adopted the new standard effective
        February 1, 2009. This standard has had no material impact on the
        consolidated financial statements.

        CREDIT RISK AND THE FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL ASSETS AND LIABILITIES

        In January 2009, the CICA issued EIC-173, "Credit Risk and the Fair
        Value of Financial Assets and Liabilities". This abstract requires
        companies to take each counterparty's credit risk into account when
        measuring the fair value of financial assets and liabilities,
        including derivatives. The Company applied this EIC abstract
        commencing the quarter ended April 30, 2009. This abstract has had no
        material impact on the consolidated financial statements.

        MINING EXPLORATION COSTS

        In March 2009, the CICA issued EIC-174, "Mining Exploration Costs",
        which provides guidance on the capitalization of exploration costs
        related to mining properties and the subsequent impairment review of
        capitalized exploration costs. The Company applied this EIC abstract
        commencing the quarter ended April 30, 2009. This abstract has had no
        material impact on the consolidated financial statements.

        FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS - DISCLOSURES

        In June 2009, the CICA amended Section 3862, "Financial Instruments -
        Disclosures", to enhance disclosure requirements for fair value
        measurement of financial instruments and liquidity risk. These
        amendments require fair value measurements to be classified using a
        fair value hierarchy that reflects the significance of the inputs
        used in making the fair value measurements as follows:

           Level 1 - valuation techniques based on quoted prices (unadjusted)
           in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;

           Level 2 - valuation techniques based on inputs other than quoted
           prices included in Level 1 that are observable for the asset or
           liability, either directly (as prices) or indirectly (derived from
           prices); and

           Level 3 - valuation techniques based on unobservable market inputs
           (involves assumptions and estimates by management of how market
           participants would price the assets or liabilities).

        The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to Level 1 inputs
        and the lowest priority to Level 3 inputs. Section 3862 also requires
        an entity to disclose for each class of financial instrument, any
        significant transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 of the fair value
        hierarchy and the reasons for those transfers. For fair value
        measurements in Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy, a reconciliation
        from the beginning balances to the ending balances is required,
        disclosing transfers into or out of Level 3 (attributable to changes
        in the observability of market data) and the reasons for those
        transfers. This amendment has resulted in additional disclosures in
        note 18 of the Company's consolidated financial statements.

        FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS - RECOGNITION AND MEASUREMENT

        In August 2009, the CICA issued amendments to Section 3855,
        "Financial Instruments - Recognition and Measurement". Under the
        amendments, reclassification of financial assets out of assets held
        for trading and assets held for sale categories into the loans and
        receivables category is now permitted under certain circumstances;
        the definition of loans and receivables category has been updated so
        that debt securities that are not quoted in an active market are
        permitted to be classified in the loans and receivables category;
        impairment losses relating to available for sale debt instruments
        must be reversed if the fair value of the instrument increases due to
        an event occurring after the loss was recognized. These amendments
        have had no material impact on the consolidated financial statements.

    (u) Recently Issued Accounting Standards

        EQUITY

        In August 2009, the CICA amended Section 3251, "Equity". The
        amendments apply only to entities that have adopted Section 1602,
        "Non-Controlling Interests". The amendments require separate
        presentation on the consolidated statements of earnings and
        comprehensive income of earnings attributable to owners of the
        Company and those attributable to non-controlling interests. The
        amendments require that non-controlling interests be presented
        separately as a component of equity. As the Company has not adopted
        section 1602, which is mandatory for fiscal years beginning on or
        after January 1, 2011, the amendments are not applicable to the
        Company in the interim.

        BUSINESS COMBINATIONS

        In December 2008, the CICA issued Handbook Section 1582, "Business
        Combinations", which applies prospectively to business combinations
        with an acquisition date on or after January 1, 2011. The section
        provides the Canadian equivalent to IFRS 3, "Business Combinations",
        and is expected to have a material impact on how prospective business
        combinations are accounted for by requiring additional use of fair
        value measurements, recognition of additional assets and liabilities
        and increased disclosure.

NOTE 9:

Derivative Financial Instruments

On October 1, 2009, the Company executed an interest rate cash flow hedge on Harry Winston Inc.'s five-year revolving credit facility in the form of a swap to mitigate the Company's exposure to variability in cash flows for the future interest payments on a designated portion of borrowings on the facility. The interest rate swap qualifies as a hedge for accounting purposes. Accordingly, the fair value of the derivative is recorded as an asset or liability on the consolidated balance sheets and the effective portion of the change in the derivative's fair value at the end of each period is recorded in other comprehensive income. Any gain or loss in fair value relating to the ineffective portion of the hedging relationship is recorded in current earnings. For the year ended January 31, 2010, the Company recorded an other comprehensive loss of $0.4 million (net of income taxes of $0.2 million). No gain or loss was recorded in earnings as a result of hedge ineffectiveness.

    
                                                            January 31, 2010

In addition, the Company has recorded an embedded derivative at the Diavik Diamond Mine. The notional amount of the contract is $0.9 million and the contract matures in 2012. The fair value of the derivative is recorded as an asset or liability on the consolidated balance sheets and the change in the derivative's fair value at the end of each period is recorded in earnings. For the year ended January 31, 2010, the Company recorded an asset of $0.4 million (2009 - $0.3 million) relating to the embedded derivative and recorded a gain of $0.1 million (2009 - $0.3 million).

    (a) MINING SEGMENT CREDIT FACILITIES

        (i)  On March 31, 2009, with the closing of the Kinross transaction,
             the Company repaid all amounts outstanding on the mining
             segment's senior secured term and revolving credit facilities.

        (ii) The Company's first mortgage on real property has scheduled
             principal payments of approximately $0.2 million quarterly, and
             may be prepaid at any time.

    (b) RETAIL SEGMENT CREDIT FACILITIES

        (i)  Harry Winston Inc. maintains a credit agreement with a syndicate
             of banks for a $250.0 million five-year revolving credit
             facility. In addition, Harry Winston Inc. may increase the
             credit facility by an additional $50.0 million to $300.0 million
             during the term of the facility. There are no scheduled
             repayments required before maturity. The credit facility is
             supported by a $20.0 million limited guarantee provided by Harry
             Winston Diamond Corporation. The amount available under this
             facility is subject to a borrowing base formula based on certain
             assets of Harry Winston Inc.

             The credit agreement contains affirmative and negative non-
             financial and financial covenants, which apply to the retail
             segment. These provisions include consolidated minimum tangible
             net worth, minimum coverage of fixed charges, leverage ratio and
             limitations on capital expenditures and certain investments. The
             credit agreement also includes a change of control provision,
             which would result in the entire unpaid principal and all
             accrued interest of the facility becoming due immediately upon
             change of control, as defined. Any material adverse change, as
             defined, in the retail segment's business, assets, liabilities,
             consolidated financial position or consolidated results of
             operations constitutes default under the agreement.

             The retail segment has pledged 100% of Harry Winston Inc.'s
             common stock and 66 2/3% of the common stock of its foreign
             subsidiaries to the bank to secure the loan. Inventory and
             accounts receivable of Harry Winston Inc. are pledged as
             collateral to secure the borrowings of Harry Winston Inc. In
             addition, an assignment of proceeds on insurance covering
             security collateral was made.

             Loans under the credit facility can be either fixed rate loans
             or revolving line of credit loans. The fixed rate loans will
             bear interest within a range of 1.50% to 2.25% above LIBOR,
             based upon a pricing grid determined by the fixed charge
             coverage ratio. Interest under this option will be determined
             for periods of either one, two, three or six months. The
             revolving line of credit loans will bear interest within a range
             of 0.50% to 0.75% above the bank's prime rate based upon a
             pricing grid determined by the fixed charge coverage ratio as
             well.

        (ii) Harry Winston S.A. maintains a 25-year loan agreement for
             17.5 million CHF ($16.4 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 ($3.3 million) loan and a CHF 14.0 million
             ($13.2 million) loan. The bank has a secured interest in the
             factory building. In addition, the Company has a demand credit
             facility of CHF 2.0 million ($1.9 million), supported by a
             $2.0 million standby letter of credit, which is classified as
             bank advances. At January 31, 2010, $nil was outstanding,
             compared to $0.5 million at January 31, 2009.

The Joint Venture has an obligation under various agreements (note 15) to reclaim and restore the lands disturbed by its mining operations.

The Company's share of the total undiscounted amount of the future cash flows that will be required to settle the obligation incurred at January 31, 2010 is estimated to be $80.5 million, of which approximately $72.5 million is expected to occur at the end of the mine life. The revision of previous estimates in fiscal 2008 reflects anticipated higher costs for fuel, labour and equipment based on a significant escalation in these key operating costs in recent years. The anticipated cash flows relating to the obligation at the time of the obligation have been discounted at a credit adjusted risk-free interest rate of 4.96%.

    (c) Stock Options

        Under the Employee Stock Option Plan, amended and approved by the
        shareholders on June 4, 2008, the Company may grant options for up to
        6,000,000 shares of common stock. Options may be granted to any
        director, officer, employee or consultant of the Company or any of
        its affiliates. Options granted to directors vest immediately and
        options granted to officers, employees or consultants vest over three
        to four years. The maximum term of an option is ten years. The number
        of shares reserved for issuance to any one optionee pursuant to
        options cannot exceed 2% of the issued and outstanding common shares
        of the Company at the date of grant of such options.

        The exercise price of each option cannot be less than the fair market
        value of the shares on the last trading day preceding the date of
        grant.

        The Company's shares are primarily traded on a Canadian dollar based
        exchange, and accordingly stock option information is presented in
        Canadian dollars, with conversion to US dollars at the average
        exchange rate for the year.

        Compensation expense for stock options was $1.7 million for fiscal
        2010 (2009 - $0.5 million) and is presented as a component of both
        cost of sales and selling, general and administrative expenses. The
        amount credited to share capital for the exercise of the options is
        the sum of (a) the cash proceeds received and (b) the amount debited
        to contributed surplus upon exercise of stock options by optionees
        (2010 - $nil; 2009 - $nil).

        Changes in share options outstanding are as follows:

    (d) Stock-Based Compensation

        The Company applies the fair value method to all grants of stock
        options.

        The fair value of options granted during the year ended January 31,
        2010 was estimated using a Black-Scholes option pricing model with
        the following weighted average assumptions. The Company did not grant
        any options during fiscal 2009.

                                                           2010         2009

        During the fiscal year, the Company granted 11,895 RSUs (net of
        forfeitures) and 73,521 DSUs under an employee and director incentive
        compensation program, respectively. The RSU and DSU Plans are full
        value phantom shares that mirror the value of Harry Winston Diamond
        Corporation's publicly traded common shares.

        Grants under the RSU Plan are on a discretionary basis to employees
        of the Company subject to Board of Director approval. Each RSU grant
        vests on the third anniversary of the grant date, subject to special
        rules for death and disability. The Company anticipates paying out
        cash on maturity of RSUs and DSUs.

        Only non-executive directors of the Company are eligible for grants
        under the DSU Plan. Each DSU grant vests immediately on the grant
        date.

        The expenses related to the RSUs and DSUs are accrued based on the
        price of Harry Winston Diamond Corporation's common shares at the end
        of the period and on the probability of vesting. This expense is
        recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the grant. The
        Company recognized an expense of $1.5 million (2009 - recovery of
        $1.9 million) for the twelve months ended January 31, 2010.

NOTE 15:

Commitments and Guarantees

    
    (a) Environmental Agreement

        Through negotiations of environmental and other agreements, the Joint
        Venture must provide funding for the Environmental Monitoring
        Advisory Board. HWDLP's share of this funding requirement was
        $0.2 million for calendar 2009. 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 January 31, 2010, was $74.2 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.

    (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
        retail salons, 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:

    (a) Defined Benefit Pension Plan

        The Harry Winston retail segment sponsors three separate defined
        benefit pension plans covering substantially all of its employees in
        the United States, Japan and Switzerland. The principal pension plan
        is the Harry Winston Employee Retirement Plan for Harry Winston Inc.
        US employees. The benefits for the Harry Winston Inc. plan are based
        on years of service and the employee's compensation. In April 2001,
        Harry Winston Inc. amended its defined benefit pension plan. The
        amendment froze plan participation effective April 30, 2001. Harry
        Winston Inc.'s funding policy for the US plan is to contribute
        amounts to the plan sufficient to meet the minimum funding
        requirements set forth in the Employee Retirement Income Security Act
        of 1974. Plan assets consist primarily of fixed income, equity and
        other short-term investments. The other two defined benefit pension
        plans are sponsored by retail segment subsidiaries Harry Winston
        Japan, K.K. and Harry Winston S.A., which converted their previous
        pension plan arrangements into defined benefit plans effective
        February 1, 2007. Pension liabilities for these two non-US plans are
        funded in accordance with local laws and regulations.

              US plan assets represented approximately 57% of total Harry
              Winston retail segment plan assets at January 31, 2010. The
              unfunded status of the retail segment plans are comprised of
              $1.1 million attributed to the US-based Harry Winston Inc.
              plan, as reported in the table above, and $1.6 million
              attributed to the Harry Winston Japan, K.K. plan. The Harry
              Winston Japan, K.K. plan is non-funded with a benefit
              obligation of $1.6 million. The Harry Winston S.A. plan was
              fully funded at January 31, 2010 with a benefit obligation of
              $5.4 million offset by plan assets of $5.9 million.

              The following table provides the components of the net periodic
              pension costs for the three plans for the years ended

        (iii) THE SIGNIFICANT ASSUMPTIONS USED FOR HARRY WINSTON INC.'S US
              PLAN ARE AS FOLLOWS:

                                                           2010         2009

              Expected long-term rate of return           7.50%        7.50%
              ---------------------------------------------------------------
              BENEFIT COSTS FOR THE YEAR:
              Discount rate                               6.53%        6.24%
              Expected long-term rate of return

              ---------------------------------------------------------------

              Harry Winston Inc's overall expected long-term rate of return
              on assets is 7.50%. The expected long-term rate of return is
              based on the portfolio as a whole and not on the sum of the
              returns on individual asset categories. The return is based
              exclusively on historical returns, without adjustments. Harry
              Winston S.A.'s overall expected long-term rate of return on
              assets is 3.75%. Long-term rate of return for Harry Winston
              Japan, K.K. plan assets is not applicable due to the unfunded
              status of the plan.

              The weighted average assumptions used to determine the benefit
              obligations for Harry Winston Japan, K.K. and Harry Winston
              S.A. at January 31, 2010 are a discount rate and expected
              long-term rate of return of 1.84% and 0.00% and 3.00% and
              3.75%, respectively.

              The weighted average assumptions used to determine the benefit
              costs for Harry Winston Japan, K.K. and Harry Winston S.A. at
              January 31, 2010 are a discount rate, expected long-term rate
              of return and a rate of compensation increase of 1.84%, 0.00%
              and 4.36%, and 3.00%, 3.75% and 2.00%, respectively.

        (iv)  HARRY WINSTON RETAIL SEGMENT EXPECTS TO CONTRIBUTE $1.0 MILLION
              TO ITS PENSION PLAN IN FISCAL 2011

              Benefits of approximately $1.4 million are expected to be paid
              by the retail segment in each fiscal year from 2011 to 2015.
              The aggregate benefits expected to be paid in the five fiscal
              years from 2016 to 2020 are $6.3 million. The expected benefits
              are based on the same assumptions used to measure the retail
              segment's benefit obligation at January 31, 2010.

    (b) Defined Contribution Plan

        Harry Winston Inc. has a defined contribution 401(k) plan covering
        substantially all employees in the United States. For the fiscal
        years ended January 31, 2010 and 2009, Harry Winston Inc. elected to
        increase the employer-matching contribution to 100% of the first 6%
        of the employee's salary from 50% in fiscal 2007 and prior. Employees
        must meet minimum service requirements and be employed on December 31
        of each year in order to receive this matching contribution.

        The Joint Venture sponsors a defined contribution plan whereby the
        employer contributes 6% of the employee's salary.

        Harry Winston Diamond Corporation introduced a defined contribution
        plan in fiscal 2009 whereby the employer contributes to a maximum of
        6% of the employee's salary to the maximum contribution limit under
        Canada's Income Tax Act.

    (c) Deferred Compensation Plan

        On January 28, 2005, the Board of Directors of Harry Winston Inc.
        approved an Equity Participation Plan (the "Plan") for certain
        executives of Harry Winston Inc. The Plan involves "Phantom Stock"
        awards, as defined in the executives' employment agreements, which
        are payable in cash. These awards are split into a 40% time-vested
        award and a 60% cliff-vested award. The value of the award for each
        executive is calculated as a percentage of return on investment, as
        defined in the agreements as the excess of the fair value of Harry
        Winston Inc. at the date of calculation, over the fair value of Harry
        Winston Inc. at April 2, 2004, adjusted for certain items as defined
        in the agreements. The 40% time-vested award vests on the six annual
        anniversaries of each executive's designated start date and over the
        six-year period, the vesting percentages are 0%, 0%, 10%, 10%, 10%
        and 10%, respectively. The 60% cliff-vested award vests in full on
        the date that Harry Winston Diamond Corporation becomes the acquirer
        of 100% of the common stock of Harry Winston Inc. The executives must
        remain employed by Harry Winston Inc. through the vesting dates in
        order for the awards to vest. Both awards would vest immediately upon
        the date of any future change in control as defined in the employment
        agreements. On September 29, 2006, Harry Winston Diamond Corporation
        acquired 100% of the common stock of Harry Winston Inc. As a result,
        the cliff-vested award has vested. At January 31, 2010 and 2009,
        Harry Winston Inc. has recorded a liability of $3.2 million and
        $3.1 million, respectively, relating to the Plan.

        At January 31, 2010 and 2009, Harry Winston Inc. has recorded a
        liability of $6.0 million and $6.0 million, respectively, in
        connection with a deferred compensation plan for a key executive.
        According to the terms of this plan, the executive is entitled to
        deferred compensation of $5.0 million, which vests in equal
        installments on the first through the third anniversaries of the
        executive's first day of employment with Harry Winston Inc. On each
        vesting date, the vested portion of the deferred compensation will be
        paid to the executive unless the executive provides Harry Winston
        Inc. with prior written notice to defer receipt of all or a portion
        of the vested portion of the deferred compensation. All such vested
        amounts deferred at the request of the executive will be distributed
        to the executive upon the executive's termination of employment with
        Harry Winston Inc. The deferred compensation bears interest at LIBOR.
        This executive's employment with Harry Winston, Inc. terminated on
        December 31, 2009 and hence, the amount of $6.0 million in connection
        of deferred compensation plan will be distributed on July 1, 2010 as
        per this plan.
    

NOTE 17:

Capital Management

As part of the Kinross investment, the Company and Kinross have agreed to certain provisions regarding capital management for a period of two years following the closing, subject to earlier termination in specified circumstances. During this period, without Kinross' consent not to be unreasonably withheld, the Company has agreed not to incur indebtedness in excess of a specified amount, subject to an exception for indebtedness incurred to finance an acquisition by the Company. In addition, the Company has agreed not to pay dividends and to limit the amount of funding it will provide to the retail segment. The Company believes that the funding limit for the retail segment will not be exceeded during the next twelve months. The capital management provisions do not in any way limit the Company's ability to issue equity or equity-linked securities, subject to compliance with Kinross' pro rata participation right in such equity issuances.

The Company's capital includes cash and cash equivalents, short-term debt, long-term debt and equity, which includes issued common shares, 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.

With the closing of the Kinross transaction and the repayment in full of the mining segment's senior secured credit facilities, 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 18:

Financial Instruments

The Company has various financial instruments comprising cash and cash equivalents, cash collateral and cash reserves, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, bank advances and long-term debt.

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 CICA Handbook Section 3862.

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 long-term debt is fully secured; hence the fair value of this instrument at January 31, 2010 is considered to approximate its carrying value.

The fair value of derivative financial instruments included in accounts payable and accrued liabilities is determined using standard valuation techniques with observable market information and is classified within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy established by CICA Handbook Section 3862.

The carrying values of these financial instruments are as follows:

NOTE 19:

Financial Risk Exposure and Risk Management

The Company is exposed, in varying degrees, to a variety of financial-instrument-related risks by virtue of its activities. The Company's overall financial risk management program focuses on the preservation of capital and protecting current and future Company assets and cash flows by minimizing exposure to risks posed by the uncertainties and volatilities of financial markets.

The Company's Audit Committee has responsibility to review and discuss significant financial risks or exposures and to assess the steps management has taken to monitor, control, report and mitigate such risks to the Company.

Financial risk management is carried out by the Finance department, which identifies and evaluates financial risks and establishes controls and procedures to ensure financial risks are mitigated.

The types of risk exposure and the way in which such exposures are managed are as follows:

    
    i)   Currency Risk

         The Company's sales are predominately denominated in US dollars. As
         the Company operates in an international environment, some of the
         Company's financial instruments and transactions are denominated in
         currencies other than the US dollar. The results of the Company's
         operations are subject to currency transaction risk and currency
         translation risk. The operating results and financial position of
         the Company are reported in US dollars in the Company's consolidated
         financial statements.

         The Company's primary foreign exchange exposure impacting pre-tax
         earnings arises from the following sources:

            Net Canadian dollar denominated monetary assets and liabilities.
            The most significant exposure relates to its Canadian dollar
            future income tax liability. 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. The weakening/strengthening
            of the Canadian dollar versus the US dollar results in an
            unrealized foreign exchange gain/loss on the revaluation of the
            Canadian dollar denominated future income tax liability.

            Committed or anticipated foreign currency denominated
            transactions, primarily Canadian dollar costs at the Diavik
            Diamond Mine.

         Based on the Company's net exposure to Canadian dollar monetary
         assets and liabilities at January 31, 2010, a one-cent change in the
         exchange rate would have impacted pre-tax net earnings for the year
         by $2.2 million.

    ii)  Interest Rate Risk

         Interest rate risk is the risk borne by an interest-bearing asset or
         liability as a result of fluctuations in interest rates. Financial
         assets and financial liabilities with variable interest rates expose
         the Company to cash flow interest rate risk. The Company's most
         significant interest rate risk arises from its various credit
         facilities which bear variable interest based on LIBOR. Based on the
         Company's LIBOR based credit facilities at January 31, 2010, a
         100 basis point change in the LIBOR rate would have impacted pre-tax
         net earnings for the year by $1.4 million.

    iii) Concentration of Credit Risk

         Credit risk is the risk of a financial loss to the Company if a
         customer or counterparty to a financial instrument fails to meet its
         contractual obligation.

         Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to credit
         risk consist of trade receivables from retail segment clients. While
         economic factors can affect credit risk, the Company manages risk by
         providing credit terms on a case-by-case basis only after a review
         of the client's financial position and past credit history. The
         Company has not experienced significant losses in the past from its
         customers.

         The Company's exposure to credit risk in the mining segment is
         minimized by its sales policy, which requires receipt of cash prior
         to the delivery of rough diamonds to its customers.

         The Company manages credit risk, in respect of short-term
         investments, by maintaining bank accounts with Tier 1 banks and
         investing only in term deposits or banker's acceptances with highly
         rated financial institutions that are capable of prompt liquidation.
         The Company monitors and manages its concentration of counterparty
         credit risk on an ongoing basis.

         At January 31, 2010, the Company's maximum counterparty credit
         exposure consists of the carrying amount of cash and cash
         equivalents and accounts receivable, which approximates fair value.

    iv)  Liquidity Risk

         Liquidity risk is the risk that the Company will not be able to meet
         its financial obligations as they fall due.

         The Company manages its liquidity by ensuring that there is
         sufficient capital to meet short and long-term business
         requirements, after taking into account cash flows from operations
         and the Company's holdings of cash and cash equivalents. The Company
         also strives to maintain sufficient financial liquidity at all times
         in order to participate in investment opportunities as they arise,
         as well as to withstand sudden adverse changes in economic
         circumstances. The Company assesses liquidity and capital resources
         on a consolidated basis. Management forecasts cash flows for its
         current and subsequent fiscal years to predict future financing
         requirements. Future requirements are met through a combination of
         committed credit facilities and access to capital markets.

         At January 31, 2010, the Company had $63.0 million of cash and cash
         equivalents and $40.2 million available under credit facilities.

         The following table summarizes the aggregate amount of contractual
         future cash outflows for the Company's financial liabilities:
