In addition to the stock options, restricted stock and restricted stock units reflected in the foregoing table, stock options to purchase 3.2 million of shares of common stock and restricted stock units relating to 0.6 million shares of common stock were outstanding at January 31, 2015, restricted stock units relating to 0.7 million shares of common stock were outstanding at February 1, 2014, and stock options to purchase 7.5 million of shares of common stock and restricted stock units relating to 1.4 million shares of common stock were outstanding at February 2, 2013, but were not included in the computation of diluted earnings per share for 2014, 2013 and 2012, respectively, because their inclusion would have been antidilutive or they were subject to performance conditions that had not been met.
