|Disclosure of Compensation Related Costs, Share-based Payments [Abstract]|
For a discussion of the Company’s stock-based compensation plans, refer to “Note 9 - Stock-Based Compensation Plans” of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended February 3, 2018.
The Company’s stock-based compensation expense primarily includes the fair value of restricted stock units (RSUs) and employees’ purchase rights under the Company’s Employee Stock Purchase Plan. Stock-based compensation expense was $60.2 million and $51.8 million during the 39 weeks ended November 3, 2018 and October 28, 2017, respectively.
The Company issues service-based RSUs to employees and officers and issues performance-based RSUs to certain officers of the Company. The Company recognizes expense based on the estimated fair value of the RSUs granted over the requisite service period, which is generally three years, on a straight-line basis or a shorter period based on the retirement eligibility of the grantee. The fair value of RSUs is determined using the Company’s closing stock price on the date of grant.
The following table summarizes the status of RSUs as of November 3, 2018 and changes during the 39 weeks then ended:
The entire disclosure for compensation-related costs for equity-based compensation, which may include disclosure of policies, compensation plan details, allocation of equity compensation, incentive distributions, equity-based arrangements to obtain goods and services, deferred compensation arrangements, employee stock ownership plan details and employee stock purchase plan details.
