Company Release - 3/8/2016 7:30 AM ET

PITTSBURGH, March 8, 2016 /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 30, 2016.

Fourth Quarter Results

The Company reported consolidated net income for the fourth quarter ended January 30, 2016 of $129.0 million, or $1.13 per diluted share, compared to the Company's expectations provided on November 17, 2015 of $1.10 to 1.25 per diluted share. The Company reported consolidated net income for the fourth quarter ended January 31, 2015 of $155.5 million, or $1.30 per diluted share.

Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2015 increased 3.7% to approximately $2.2 billion. Consolidated same store sales decreased 2.5% compared to the Company's guidance of negative 2.0% to positive 1.0%. Same store sales for DICK'S Sporting Goods decreased 2.5%, while Golf Galaxy decreased 5.8%. Fourth quarter 2014 consolidated same store sales increased 3.4%.

"Given the challenging conditions we faced with the unseasonably warm weather, we operated quite well in the fourth quarter, generating earnings within our guided range and driving results in important growth categories," said Edward W. Stack, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "In 2015, we grew our omni-channel platform by maintaining strong new store productivity and driving our eCommerce business. We ended the year with a strong balance sheet and returned over $420 million to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases."

Mr. Stack continued, "In 2016, we will continue to make strategic investments in our business to grow our leadership position in the industry and build meaningful momentum for 2017 and beyond. These investments are expected to have an approximate $50 to 55 million impact on earnings in 2016 and include enhancing the shopping experience in our stores, building brand equity in a significant way through our partnership with the United States Olympic Committee and Team U.S.A. and transitioning our eCommerce business to our own platform."

Omni-channel Development

eCommerce penetration for the fourth quarter of 2015 was 15.7% of total net sales, compared to 14.4% during the fourth quarter of 2014. eCommerce penetration for the 52 weeks ended January 30, 2016 was 10.3% of total net sales, compared to 9.2% during the 52 weeks ended January 31, 2015.

In the fourth quarter, the Company opened one new DICK'S Sporting Goods store, relocated one DICK'S Sporting Goods store and closed two DICK'S Sporting Goods stores. The Company also closed two Golf Galaxy stores. As of January 30, 2016, the Company operated 644 DICK'S Sporting Goods stores in 47 states, with approximately 34.4 million square feet, 73 Golf Galaxy stores in 29 states, with approximately 1.4 million square feet and 19 Field & Stream stores in nine states, with approximately 1.0 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 2015 with approximately $119 million in cash and cash equivalents and no outstanding borrowings under its revolving credit facility. In 2015, the Company continued to invest in omni-channel growth, while returning over $420 million to shareholders through share repurchases and quarterly dividends.

Total inventory increased 9.8% at the end of the fourth quarter of 2015 as compared to the end of the fourth quarter of 2014. This increase reflects the lower sales resulting from unseasonably warm weather, as well as, planned investments for earlier spring sets. The Company is comfortable with current inventory levels, given planned growth and merchandise that will be returned to vendors.

Full Year Results

The Company reported consolidated net income for the 52 weeks ended January 30, 2016 of $330.4 million or $2.83 per diluted share. For the 52 weeks ended January 31, 2015, the Company reported consolidated net income of $344.2 million or $2.84 per diluted share.

The Company reported consolidated non-GAAP net income for the 52 weeks ended January 30, 2016 of $335.1 million or $2.87 per diluted share. For the 52 weeks ended January 31, 2015, the Company reported consolidated non-GAAP net income of $347.8 million or $2.87 per diluted share. The GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliations are included in a table later in the release under the heading "Non-GAAP Net Income and Earnings Per Share Reconciliations."

Net sales for the 52 weeks ended January 30, 2016 increased 6.7% from last year's period to $7.3 billion, reflecting the opening of new stores partially offset by a consolidated same store sales decrease of 0.2%.

Capital Allocation

On February 18, 2016, the Company's Board of Directors authorized and declared a quarterly dividend in the amount of $0.15125 per share on the Company's Common Stock and Class B Common Stock. The dividend is payable in cash on March 31, 2016 to stockholders of record at the close of business on March 11, 2016. This dividend represents a 10 percent increase over the Company's previous quarterly per share amount and is equivalent to an annualized rate of $0.605 per share.

During the fourth quarter of 2015, the Company repurchased approximately 1.6 million shares of its common stock at an average cost of $36.44 per share, for a total cost of $57.3 million. In total for 2015, the Company repurchased approximately 7.4 million shares of its common stock at an average price of $48.31 per share, for a total cost of $357.3 million. Since starting its $1 billion share repurchase authorization at the beginning of 2013, the Company has repurchased approximately $813 million of common stock and has approximately $187 million remaining under the authorization.

Current 2016 Outlook

The Company's current outlook for 2016 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.

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. These measures should be viewed as supplementing, and not as an alternative or substitute for, the Company's financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. The methods used by the Company to calculate its non-GAAP financial measures may differ significantly from methods used by other companies to compute similar measures. As a result, any non-GAAP financial measures presented herein may not be comparable to similar measures provided by other companies. A reconciliation of the Company's non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are provided below and on the Company's website at investors.DICKS.com.

Adjusted EBITDA


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