PITTSBURGH, March 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- DICK'S Sporting Goods, Inc. (NYSE: DKS), the largest U.S. based full-line omni-channel sporting goods retailer, today reported sales and earnings results for the fourth quarter and full year ended January 31, 2015.

Fourth Quarter Results

The Company reported consolidated net income for the fourth quarter ended January 31, 2015 of $155.5 million, or $1.30 per diluted share, compared to the Company's expectations provided on November 18, 2014 of $1.18 to 1.28 per diluted share. For the fourth quarter ended February 1, 2014, the Company reported consolidated net income of $138.6 million, or $1.11 per diluted share.

Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2014 increased 10.9% to approximately $2.2 billion. Consolidated same store sales increased 3.4% compared to the Company's guidance of an approximate 1 to 3% increase. Same store sales for DICK'S Sporting Goods increased 3.8%, while Golf Galaxy decreased 7.1%. Fourth quarter 2013 consolidated same store sales increased 7.3%, adjusted for the shifted retail calendar due to the 53rd week in 2012.

"We are very pleased with the record results we delivered in the fourth quarter. The 17% increase in earnings per diluted share was driven by the continued growth of our omni-channel network, our powerful marketing and merchandising strategies, and the execution of these strategies by our store associates," said Edward W. Stack, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "The strong performance validates the merchandising and space allocation strategies that we put into place during this past year. Our team also successfully navigated a heavily promotional environment while exceeding our top line and bottom line targets, and our inventory is well-positioned as we head into 2015."

Omni-channel Development

eCommerce penetration for the fourth quarter of 2014 was 14.4% of total sales, compared to 12.2% during the fourth quarter of 2013. eCommerce penetration for the 52 weeks ended January 31, 2015 was 9.2% of total sales, compared to 7.9% during the 52 weeks ended February 1, 2014.

In the fourth quarter, the Company opened six new DICK'S Sporting Goods stores and closed two Golf Galaxy stores. As of January 31, 2015, the Company operated 603 DICK'S Sporting Goods stores in 46 states, with approximately 32.3 million square feet, 78 Golf Galaxy stores in 29 states, with approximately 1.4 million square feet and 10 Field & Stream stores in five states, with approximately 0.5 million square feet.

Store count, square footage and new stores are listed in a table later in the release under the heading "Store Count and Square Footage."

Balance Sheet

The Company ended fiscal 2014 with approximately $222 million in cash and cash equivalents as compared to $182 million at the end of fiscal 2013, with no outstanding borrowings under its $500 million revolving credit facility at the end of each fiscal year. In fiscal 2014, the Company utilized capital to invest in omni-channel growth, and returned over $260 million to shareholders through share repurchases and quarterly dividends.

Total inventory was 12.9% higher at the end of the fourth quarter of 2014 as compared to the end of the fourth quarter of 2013.

Full Year Results

The Company reported consolidated non-GAAP net income for the 52 weeks ended January 31, 2015 of $347.8 million, or $2.87 per diluted share. On a GAAP basis, the Company reported consolidated net income for the 52 weeks ended January 31, 2015 of $344.2 million, or $2.84 per diluted share.

Net sales for the 52 weeks ended January 31, 2015 increased 9.7% from last year's period to $6.8 billion due to the consolidated same store sales increase of 2.4% coupled with the opening of new stores.

Capital Allocation

On February 18, 2015, the Company's Board of Directors authorized and declared a quarterly dividend in the amount of $0.1375 per share on the Company's Common Stock and Class B Common Stock.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting the Company's financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), the Company believes that certain non-GAAP financial information provides users of the Company's financial information with additional useful information in evaluating operating performance between reporting periods.

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. During the second quarter of 2013, the Company recorded a pre-tax $7.9 million non-cash impairment charge to reduce the carrying value of a corporate aircraft held for sale to fair market value. The provision for income taxes was calculated at 40%, which approximates the Company's blended tax rate.

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, capital investments, and certain non-recurring, infrequent or unusual items.
