PITTSBURGH, May 29, 2019 /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 first quarter ended May 4, 2019.

First Quarter Results

The Company reported consolidated net income for the first quarter ended May 4, 2019 of $57.5 million, or $0.61 per diluted share. The Company reported consolidated net income for the first quarter ended May 5, 2018 of $60.1 million, or $0.59 per diluted share.

On a non-GAAP basis, the Company reported consolidated net income for the first quarter ended May 4, 2019 of $58.4 million, or $0.62 per diluted share. First quarter 2019 non-GAAP results exclude a non-cash asset impairment and the settlement of a litigation contingency. The GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation is included in a table later in the release under the heading "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation."

Net sales for the first quarter of 2019 increased 0.6% to approximately $1.92 billion. Consolidated same store sales were flat.  First quarter 2018 consolidated same store sales decreased 2.5%, adjusted for the calendar shift due to the 53rd week in fiscal 2017, which the Company believes is the best view of its business.

"We were pleased with our start to 2019, delivering higher merchandise margins and first quarter earnings per diluted share above last year. Same store sales turned positive in March and remained positive in April, as we started to see the benefits of our key strategies and investments," said Edward W. Stack, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We are very enthusiastic about our business and are pleased to increase our full year earnings outlook."

"During the first quarter, we made great progress in executing against our strategic priorities and investments as we remain focused on improving the in-store and online experience for our athletes and driving productivity improvements across our business," added Lauren R. Hobart, President. "As we continue to build the best omni-channel experience in sporting goods, we see significant opportunity to drive competitive advantage in the marketplace and strengthen our leadership position."

Omni-channel Development

eCommerce sales for the first quarter of 2019 increased 15%. eCommerce penetration for the first quarter of 2019 was approximately 13% of total net sales, compared to approximately 11% during the first quarter of 2018.

In the first quarter, the Company opened one new Golf Galaxy store, relocated one DICK'S Sporting Goods store, and closed two DICK'S Sporting Goods stores.  As of May 4, 2019, the Company operated 727 DICK'S Sporting Goods stores in 47 states, with approximately 38.6 million square feet, 95 Golf Galaxy stores in 32 states, with approximately 2.0 million square feet, and 35 Field & Stream stores in 16 states, with approximately 1.7 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 the first quarter of 2019 with approximately $92.4 million in cash and cash equivalents and approximately $369.5 million in outstanding borrowings under its revolving credit facility. Over the course of the last 12 months, the Company continued to invest in omni-channel growth, while returning over $414 million to shareholders through share repurchases and quarterly dividends.

Total inventory increased 16.2% at the end of the first quarter of 2019 as compared to the end of the first quarter of 2018. This planned increase was due primarily to strategic investments to support key growth categories.

Capital Allocation

On May 24, 2019, the Company's Board of Directors authorized and declared a quarterly dividend in the amount of $0.275 per share on the Company's Common Stock and Class B Common Stock. The dividend is payable in cash on June 28, 2019 to stockholders of record at the close of business on June 14, 2019.

During the first quarter of 2019, the Company repurchased approximately 2.97 million shares of its common stock at an average cost of $36.15 per share, for a total cost of $107.3 million. As of May 4, 2019, the Company has approximately $326 million remaining under its authorization that extends through 2021.

During the first three weeks of the second quarter, the Company repurchased additional shares of its common stock for a total cost of $78.5 million.  As of May 24, 2019, the Company has approximately $248 million remaining under its authorization.

Full Year 2019 Outlook

  • Based on an estimated 91.5 million diluted shares outstanding, the Company currently projects earnings per diluted share to be approximately $3.20 to 3.40. The Company's earnings per diluted share guidance includes approximately $30 million of net investments in business transformation initiatives. The Company reported earnings per diluted share of $3.24 for the 52 weeks ended February 2, 2019.
  • Consolidated same store sales are currently expected to be slightly positive to an increase of 2%, compared to a 3.1% decrease in 2018. The Company expects to deliver positive consolidated same store sales beginning in the second quarter.
  • The Company expects to open seven new DICK'S Sporting Goods stores and relocate three DICK'S Sporting Goods stores in 2019. The Company also expects to open two new Golf Galaxy stores and relocate one Golf Galaxy store in 2019. Six of the new stores are expected to open during the third quarter.
  • In 2019, the Company anticipates capital expenditures to be approximately $230 million on a gross basis and approximately $200 million on a net basis. In 2018, capital expenditures were $198 million on a gross basis and $170 million on a net basis.

Conference Call Info

The Company will host a conference call today at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time to discuss the first quarter results. Investors will have the opportunity to listen to the earnings conference call over the internet through the Company's website located at investors.DICKS.com. To listen to the live call, please go to the website at least fifteen minutes early to register, download, and install any necessary audio software. For those who cannot listen to the live webcast, it will be archived on the Company's website for approximately twelve months.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting the Company's financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), the Company reports certain financial results that differ from what is reported under GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures include consolidated non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, and net capital expenditures, which management believes provides investors with useful supplemental information to evaluate the Company's ongoing operations and to compare with past and future periods. Management also uses certain non-GAAP measures internally for forecasting, budgeting, and measuring its operating performance. 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.
