The Company’s accounting policies for these instruments are based on whether the instruments are designated as hedge or non-hedge instruments. The Company records all derivatives on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets at fair value. The effective portions of cash flow hedges are recorded in other comprehensive income until the hedged item is recognized in earnings. The effective portions of net investment hedges are recorded in other comprehensive income as a part of the cumulative translation adjustment. The ineffective portions of cash flow hedges and net investment hedges are recorded in other income and expense. Derivatives that are not designated as hedging instruments are adjusted to fair value through earnings in the financial statement line item the derivative relates to.

The Company had a net deferred loss associated with cash flow hedges of approximately $91 million and $252 million, net of taxes, recorded in other comprehensive income as of March 26, 2011 and September 25, 2010, respectively. Deferred gains and losses associated with cash flow hedges of foreign currency revenue are recognized as a component of net sales in the same period as the related revenue is recognized, and deferred gains and losses related to cash flow hedges of inventory purchases are recognized as a component of cost of sales in the same period as the related costs are recognized. Substantially all of the Company’s hedged transactions as of March 26, 2011 are expected to occur within six months.

Derivative instruments designated as cash flow hedges must be de-designated as hedges when it is probable the forecasted hedged transaction will not occur in the initially identified time period or within a subsequent two-month time period. Deferred gains and losses in other comprehensive income associated with such derivative instruments are reclassified immediately into earnings through other income and expense. Any subsequent changes in fair value of such derivative instruments are reflected in other income and expense unless they are re-designated as hedges of other transactions. The Company did not recognize any significant net gains or losses related to the loss of hedge designation on discontinued cash flow hedges during the three- and six-month periods ended March 26, 2011 and March 27, 2010.

The Company’s unrealized net gains and losses on net investment hedges, included in the cumulative translation adjustment account of accumulated other comprehensive income (“AOCI”), were not significant as of March 26, 2011 and September 25, 2010, respectively. The ineffective portions and amounts excluded from the effectiveness test of net investment hedges are recorded in other income and expense.

The Company recognized in earnings a net loss on foreign currency forward and option contracts not designated as hedging instruments of $84 million and $55 million during the three- and six-month periods ended March 26, 2011, respectively, and a net gain on foreign currency forward and option contracts not designated as hedging instruments of $24 million and a net loss of $10 million during the three- and six-month periods ended March 27, 2010, respectively. These amounts recorded in other income and expense represent the net gain or loss on the derivative contracts and do not include changes in the related exposures, which generally offset a portion of the gain or loss on the derivative contracts.
