Company Release - 5/21/2013 7:30 AM ET

PITTSBURGH, May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DICK'S Sporting Goods, Inc. (NYSE: DKS), the largest U.S.-based full-line sporting goods retailer, today reported sales and earnings results for the first quarter ended May 4, 2013.

First Quarter Results

The Company reported consolidated non-GAAP net income for the first quarter ended May 4, 2013 of $60.5 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, compared to the Company's expectations provided on March 11, 2013 of $0.47 to 0.49 per diluted share. For the first quarter ended April 28, 2012, the Company reported consolidated net income of $57.2 million, or $0.45 per diluted share.

On a GAAP basis, the Company reported consolidated net income for the first quarter ended May 4, 2013 of $64.8 million, or $0.52 per diluted share.  GAAP results include an after-tax increase to net income of $4.3 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, resulting from an estimated partial recovery of its previously impaired JJB investment.  The GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation is included in a table later in the release under the heading "Non-GAAP Net Income and Earnings Per Share Reconciliation."

Net sales for the first quarter of 2013 increased 4.1% to $1.3 billion.  Adjusted for the shifted calendar due to the 53rd week in 2012, consolidated same store sales decreased 3.8%, compared to our guidance of an approximate 1 to 2% decrease.  First quarter 2012 consolidated same store sales increased 8.4%.  Shifted same store sales in the first quarter of 2013 for DICK'S Sporting Goods decreased 3.2% and Golf Galaxy sales decreased 11.8%. 

Unshifted consolidated same store sales decreased 1.7%, compared to our guidance of approximately flat to a 1% increase, consisting of a 1.3% decrease at DICK'S Sporting Goods and a 7.4% decrease at Golf Galaxy.  eCommerce penetration was 5.8% of total sales.

"In the first quarter, we generated earnings in line with our original guidance, but were not pleased with our sales results, which came in below our expectations," said Edward W. Stack, Chairman and CEO. "To drive sales and preserve margins in the near-term, we will work with our vendor partners, particularly in golf, to provide value offerings; we will aggressively execute our store remodel program, with approximately 75% of the identified stores expected to be completed by the end of the second quarter; and we will continue to tightly manage clearance inventory, which has declined meaningfully."

Mr. Stack continued, "Over the long-term, we have significant opportunity to profitably grow our business by doubling the size of our store base, aggressively building our eCommerce business, and further strengthening our Omni-channel platform."

New Stores

In the first quarter, the Company opened two new DICK'S Sporting Goods stores. These stores are listed in a table later in the release under the heading "Store Count and Square Footage."

As of May 4, 2013, the Company operated 520 DICK'S Sporting Goods stores in 44 states, with approximately 28.3 million square feet and 81 Golf Galaxy stores in 30 states, with approximately 1.4 million square feet.

Balance Sheet

The Company ended the first quarter of 2013 with $114 million in cash and cash equivalents as compared to $521 million at the end of the first quarter of 2012.  The Company did not have any outstanding borrowings under its $500 million revolving credit facility.  Over the course of the past twelve months, the Company utilized capital to fund shares purchased pursuant to share repurchase programs, pay quarterly dividends, purchase its store support center, acquire intellectual property rights to the Field & Stream brand, build a distribution center and fund its $246 million special dividend.

Inventory per square foot was 2.5% higher at the end of the first quarter of 2013 as compared to the end of the first quarter of 2012, while clearance inventory per square foot decreased 7.4% during the same period.

Dividend

On May 20, 2013, the Company's Board of Directors authorized and declared a quarterly dividend in the amount of $0.125 per share on the Company's Common Stock and Class B Common Stock. The dividend is payable in cash on June 28, 2013 to stockholders of record at the close of business on June 7, 2013.

Share Repurchase Program

On March 7, 2013, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a five-year share repurchase program of up to $1 billion of the Company's common stock.  In the first quarter, the Company repurchased 1.7 million shares of its common stock at an average cost of $47.41 per share, for a total cost of $80.6 million.  The Company financed the repurchased shares from cash on hand.    

Current 2013 Outlook

The Company's current outlook for 2013 is based on current expectations and includes "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as described later in this release.  Although the Company believes that the expectations and other comments reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, it can give no assurance that such expectations or comments will prove to be correct.

    • Based on an estimated 126 million diluted shares outstanding, the Company currently anticipates reporting consolidated non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of approximately $2.84 to 2.86, excluding the partial recovery of a previously impaired asset.  For the 53 weeks ended February 2, 2013, the Company reported consolidated non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of $2.53, excluding an impairment charge.  The 53rd week in fiscal 2012 contributed approximately $0.03 to earnings per diluted share.

    • The Company expects to open approximately 40 new DICK'S Sporting Goods stores, relocate one DICK'S Sporting Goods store and complete four full and 75 partial remodels of DICK'S Sporting Goods stores in 2013. The Company also expects to open one new Golf Galaxy store and relocate one Golf Galaxy store in 2013, both of which will be in the new, larger format.
    • The Company expects to open approximately two new True Runner stores and approximately two new Field & Stream stores in 2013.
  • Second Quarter 2013
    • Based on an estimated 126 million diluted shares outstanding, the Company currently anticipates reporting consolidated earnings per diluted share of approximately $0.75 to 0.77 in the second quarter of 2013, compared to second quarter 2012 non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.65.  On a GAAP basis, the Company reported consolidated earnings per diluted share of $0.43 in the second quarter of 2012.
    • Consolidated same store sales adjusted for the shifted calendar, due to the 53rd week in 2012, are currently expected to increase approximately 2 to 3% in the second quarter of 2013, or approximately 3.5 to 4.5% on an unshifted basis, as compared to a 3.8% increase in the second quarter of 2012.
    • The Company expects to open approximately seven new DICK'S Sporting Goods stores in the second quarter of 2013.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting the Company's financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), the Company provides information regarding net income and earnings per diluted share adjusted for certain non-recurring, infrequent or unusual items; earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation, adjusted to exclude certain significant gains and losses ("adjusted EBITDA") and a reconciliation from the Company's gross capital expenditures, net of tenant allowances. These measures are considered non-GAAP and are not preferable to GAAP financial information; however, the Company believes this information provides additional measures of performance that the Company's management, analysts and investors can use to compare core operating results between reporting periods. These non-GAAP measures are provided below and on the Company's website at http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/investors.

During the first quarter of 2013, the Company determined that it would recover $4.3 million of its investment in JJB Sports, which it had previously fully impaired.  There is no related tax expense as the Company reversed a portion of the deferred tax valuation allowance it had previously recorded for net capital loss carryforwards it did not expect to realize at the time its investment in JJB Sports was fully impaired.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other generally accepted accounting principles measure of performance or liquidity.  Adjusted EBITDA, as the Company has calculated it, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.  Adjusted EBITDA is a key metric used by the Company that provides a measurement of profitability that eliminates the effect of changes resulting from financing decisions, tax regulations and capital investments.
