Ladies and Gentlemen:
I am Executive Vice President, General Counsel & Secretary of V.F. Corporation, a Pennsylvania corporation (the Company), which has a principal place of business located in Greenwood Village, Colorado. In that capacity, I have acted as counsel for the Company in connection with the Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-223299) (the Registration Statement), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the purpose of registering under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Act), certain securities, including 500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Companys 0.250% Senior Notes due 2028 and 500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Companys 0.625% Senior Notes due 2032 (collectively, the Securities). The Securities are to be issued pursuant to the provisions of the Indenture dated October 15, 2007 (the Base Indenture), between the Company and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., formerly known as The Bank of New York Trust Company, N.A., as trustee (the Trustee), as supplemented by the Fourth Supplemental Indenture dated as of February 25, 2020 (together with the Base Indenture, the Indenture), among the Company, the Trustee and The Bank of New York Mellon, London Branch, as paying agent. The Securities are to be sold pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement dated February 18, 2020 (the Underwriting Agreement) among the Company and the several underwriters named therein.
I have examined originals or copies, certified or otherwise identified to my satisfaction, of such documents, corporate records, certificates of public officials and other instruments as I have deemed necessary or advisable for the purpose of rendering this opinion.
Based upon the foregoing, I am of the opinion that the Securities have been duly authorized by the Company.
I express no opinion herein concerning any law other than the applicable provisions of the Pennsylvania Business Corporation Law and the current federal laws of the United States. I am a member of the bar of the State of Ohio and the State of North Carolina. I am not admitted to practice law in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, but I am generally familiar with the laws of such Commonwealth and have made such inquiries as I considered necessary to render my opinion. I hereby consent to the filing of this opinion as an exhibit to a report on Form 8-K to be filed by the Company on the date hereof and its incorporation by reference into the Registration Statement and further consent to the reference to my name under the caption Legal Matters in the prospectus supplement which is a part of the Registration Statement. In giving this consent, I do not admit that I am in the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the Securities Act.
This opinion is rendered solely in connection with the above matter. This opinion may not be relied upon for any other purpose or relied upon by or furnished to any other person without my prior written consent.
|Very truly yours,|
