DICK'S SPORTING GOODS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1.  Basis of Presentation

Dick's Sporting Goods, Inc. (together with its subsidiaries, referred to as "the Company", "we", "us" and "our" unless specified otherwise) is a leading omni-channel sporting goods retailer offering an extensive assortment of authentic, high-quality sports equipment, apparel, footwear and accessories through our dedicated associates, in-store services and unique specialty shop-in-shops. The Company also owns and operates Golf Galaxy and Field & Stream stores and Dick's Team Sports HQ, an all-in-one youth sports digital platform offering scheduling, communications and live scorekeeping through its GameChanger mobile apps, free league management services, custom uniforms and fan wear, and access to donations and sponsorships. The Company offers its products through a content-rich eCommerce platform that is integrated with its store network and provides customers with the convenience and expertise of a 24-hour storefront. When used in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, unless the context otherwise requires or otherwise specifies, any reference to "year" is to the Company's fiscal year.

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the requirements for Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and do not include all the disclosures normally required in annual consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP"). The interim consolidated financial statements are unaudited and have been prepared on the same basis as the annual audited consolidated financial statements. In the opinion of management, such unaudited consolidated financial statements include all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of the interim financial information. This unaudited interim financial information should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended February 2, 2019 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 29, 2019 . Operating results for the 13 weeks ended May 4, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending February 1, 2020 or any other period.

Reclassifications  – Certain reclassifications have been made to prior year amounts within the unaudited Consolidated Balance Sheets and Statements of Cash Flows to conform to current year presentation.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

Leases

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") ASU 2016-02, "Leases (Topic 842) . " This update requires an entity to recognize lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet and to disclose key information about the entity's leasing arrangements. ASU 2016-02 is effective for annual reporting periods, and interim periods therein, beginning after December 15, 2018, with early application permitted. A modified retrospective approach is required. In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-10,  "Codification Improvements to Topic 842, Leases,"  and ASU 2018-11,  "Leases (Topic 842), Targeted Improvements,"  which affect certain aspects of the previously issued guidance. Amendments included an additional transition option that allows entities to apply the new standard on the adoption date and recognize a cumulative effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings, as well as a new practical expedient for lessors. The effective date and transition requirements for ASU 2018-10 and ASU 2018-11 are the same as ASU 2016-02.

The Company adopted these ASU’s during the first quarter of fiscal 2019 using the optional transition method. We elected the package of practical expedients permitted under the transition guidance within the new standard, which allows us to not reassess whether any expired or existing contracts are or contain leases, not to reassess the lease classification for any expired or existing leases, and not to reassess initial direct costs for any existing leases. We also elected the practical expedient related to land easements. We did not elect the practical expedient of hindsight when determining the lease term of existing contracts at the effective date.
We have lease agreements with non-lease components that relate to the lease components. We elected the practical expedient to account for non-lease components and the lease components to which they relate, as a single lease component for all classes of underlying assets. We also elected to keep short-term leases with an initial term of twelve months or less off the Balance Sheet.

DICK'S SPORTING GOODS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS – (Continued)



Adoption of these standards resulted in recognition of lease assets and lease liabilities of $2.5 billion  and $3.1 billion , respectively, as of February 3, 2019. As part of adopting the standard, pre-existing liabilities for deferred rent and various lease incentives were reclassified as a component of the lease assets. Additionally, the Company recorded an $8.0 million adjustment to opening retained earnings, primarily resulting from the impairment of lease assets recognized at adoption. The adoption of these standards did not materially affect our consolidated net income or cash flows. Refer to Note 5 to the unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information.

2.  Earnings Per Common Share
 
Basic earnings per common share is computed based on the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per common share is computed based on the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding, plus the effect of dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period, using the treasury stock method. Dilutive potential common shares are stock-based awards, which include outstanding stock options, restricted stock and warrants.

The computations for basic and diluted earnings per common share are as follows (in thousands, except per share data):

3.  Fair Value Measurements
 
Accounting Standard Codification ("ASC") 820, " Fair Value Measurement and Disclosures ", outlines a valuation framework and creates a fair value hierarchy for assets and liabilities as follows:

Level 1:
Observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets;
 
Level 2:
Inputs, other than quoted prices in active markets, that are observable either directly or indirectly; and
 
Level 3:
Unobservable inputs in which there is little or no market data, which require the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions.

Consists of investments in various mutual funds made by eligible individuals as part of the Company's deferred compensation plans.

The fair value of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable, revolving credit borrowings and certain other liabilities approximated book value due to the short-term nature of these instruments at both May 4, 2019 and February 2, 2019 .
 
The Company uses quoted prices in active markets to determine the fair value of the aforementioned assets determined to be Level 1 instruments. The Company's policy for recognition of transfers between levels of the fair value hierarchy is to recognize any transfer at the end of the fiscal quarter in which the determination to transfer was made.

4. Revenue Recognition

Revenue is recognized upon satisfaction of all contractual performance obligations and transfer of control to the customer. Revenue is measured as the amount of consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled in exchange for corresponding goods or services. Substantially all of the Company's sales are single performance obligation arrangements for retail sale transactions for which the transaction price is equivalent to the stated price of the product or service, net of any stated discounts applicable at a point in time. Each sales transaction results in an implicit contract with the customer to deliver a product or service at the point of sale. Revenue from retail sales is recognized at the point of sale, net of sales tax. Sales tax amounts collected from customers that are assessed by a governmental authority are excluded from revenue. The Company has elected to treat shipping and handling activities occurring subsequent to the transfer of control to the customer to be accounted for as fulfillment costs. Revenue from eCommerce sales, including vendor-direct sales arrangements, is recognized upon shipment of merchandise. A provision for anticipated merchandise returns is provided through a reduction of sales and cost of goods sold in the period that the related sales are recorded.

Deferred gift card revenue - Revenue from gift cards and returned merchandise credits (collectively the "cards") is deferred and recognized upon the redemption of the cards. Our gift card liability was  $134.2 million and $156.5 million  as of May 4, 2019 and February 2, 2019, respectively. During the 13 weeks ended May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018, we recognized  $1.9 million  and $1.4 million of gift card breakage revenue, respectively, and experienced approximately $40.5 million  and $41.4 million of gift card redemptions that were included in our gift card liability as of February 2, 2019 and February 3, 2018, respectively. Based on the Company's historical experience, the vast majority of gift card revenue is recognized within twelve months of deferral.

Customer loyalty program - Loyalty program points are accrued at the estimated retail value per point, net of estimated breakage. We estimate the breakage of loyalty points based on historical redemption rates experienced within the loyalty program. Our customer loyalty program liability was $29.4 million and $32.4 million , as of May 4, 2019 and February 2, 2019, respectively. During the 13 weeks ended May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018, we recognized approximately $15.1 million and $17.9 million , respectively, of revenue that was included in our customer loyalty program liability as of February 2, 2019 and February 3, 2018, respectively. Based on the Company's customer loyalty program policies, the vast majority of program points earned are redeemed or expire within twelve months.

5. Leases
The Company leases all of its stores, three of its distribution centers and certain equipment under non-cancellable operating leases that expire at various dates through 2033. Initial lease terms are generally for 10 to 15 years and most store leases contain multiple five -year renewal options and rent escalation provisions. The lease agreements provide primarily for the payment of minimum annual rentals, costs of utilities, property taxes, maintenance, common areas and insurance.
We determine whether a contract is or contains a lease at contract inception. Beginning in fiscal 2019, operating lease assets and operating lease liabilities are recognized at commencement date based on the present value of remaining fixed lease payments over the lease term. As the rate implicit in the lease is not readily determinable in most of our leases, we use our incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at commencement date to determine the present value of lease payments. The Company's incremental borrowing rate for a lease is the rate of interest it would have to pay on a collateralized basis to borrow an amount equal to the lease payments under similar terms. The operating lease asset also includes any fixed lease payments made and includes lease incentives and incurred initial direct costs. Operating lease expense for fixed lease payments is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. Variable lease payments are generally expensed as incurred and may include certain index-based changes in rent and other non-fixed payments for services provided by the lessor. Our lease terms may include options to extend or terminate the lease when it is reasonably certain that we will exercise that option. Additionally, our leases do not contain any material residual guarantees or material restrictive covenants.

OVERVIEW

The Company is a leading omni-channel sporting goods retailer offering an extensive assortment of authentic, high-quality sports equipment, apparel, footwear and accessories through our dedicated associates, in-store services and unique specialty shop-in-shops. The Company also owns and operates Golf Galaxy and Field & Stream stores and Dick's Team Sports HQ. The Company offers its products through a content-rich eCommerce platform that is integrated with its store network and provides customers with the convenience and expertise of a 24-hour storefront. When used in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, unless the context otherwise requires or specifies, any reference to "year" is to the Company's fiscal year.

The primary factors that have historically influenced the Company's profitability include the growth in its number of stores and selling square footage, the continued integration of eCommerce with brick and mortar stores, growth in consolidated same store sales, which include the Company's eCommerce business, and its strong gross profit margins. The Company has grown from 566 Dick's Sporting Goods stores as of May 3, 2014 to 727 Dick's Sporting Goods stores as of May 4, 2019 . The Company has reduced its rate of new store growth and intends to continue this strategy over the next few years in an effort to leverage the significant flexibility within its existing real estate portfolio to capitalize on future real estate opportunities over the near and intermediate term as those leases come up for renewal.

In recent years, the Company transitioned to an insourced eCommerce platform, and has continued to innovate its eCommerce websites and applications with customer experience enhancements, new releases of its mobile and tablet apps, and the development of omni-channel capabilities that integrate the Company's online presence with its brick and mortar stores, including ship-from-store; buy-online, pick-up in-store; return-to-store and multi-faceted marketing campaigns. The Company's eCommerce sales penetration to total net sales has increased from approximately 7% to approximately 13% for the year-to-date periods ended May 3, 2014 and May 4, 2019 , respectively. Approximately 80% of the Company's eCommerce sales are generated within brick and mortar store trade areas.

The retail industry as a whole is dynamic, and the sporting goods category has faced significant disruption in recent years, as several sporting goods retailers have gone out of business. Vendors have broadened their distribution into department stores and family footwear channels while continuing to grow their direct to consumer business. Weak customer demand for firearms and other hunting merchandise across the industry has resulted in slower growth. We have responded to these challenges by focusing on driving profitable sales, emphasizing a refined merchandise assortment that delivers newness, innovation and exclusivity. We have made strategic investments in our supply chain, digital capabilities, customer experience, private brands and teammates to support these efforts. We are also focused on increasing productivity and eliminating non-essential expenses to fund our future strategic investments.

Effective May 10, 2019, tariff rates on certain products imported from China increased from 10% to 25%. We believe that we will be able to mitigate the impact of this increase through sourcing, merchandising, and pricing actions and do not believe this increase will have a material, adverse impact on our net income for fiscal 2019.

As we look to the future, we are focused on continuing to invest in our business to meet the changing needs of our athletes and increasing their level of engagement with the Company. We plan to further enhance the store experience by optimizing our merchandise assortment, reallocating floor space to regionally relevant and growing merchandise categories and making our stores more experiential. Our primary areas of investment during fiscal 2019 will be to 1) enhance the athlete experience in our stores; 2) improve our eCommerce fulfillment capabilities and 3) implement technology solutions that improve the athlete experience and our teammates’ productivity. We plan to continue to focus on increasing productivity across the business to help fund these investments.

The Company's senior management focuses on certain key indicators to monitor the Company's performance, including:

Consolidated same store sales performance – Our management considers same store sales, which consists of both brick and mortar and eCommerce sales, to be an important indicator of our current performance. Same store sales results are important to leverage our costs, which include occupancy costs, store payroll and other store expenses. Same store sales also have a direct impact on our total net sales, net income, cash and working capital. A store is included in the same store sales calculation during the same fiscal period that it commences its 14 th full month of operations. Stores that were closed or relocated during the applicable period have been excluded from same store sales results. Each relocated store is returned to the same store sales base during the fiscal period that it commences its 14 th full month of operations at the new location. See further discussion of our consolidated same store sales in the "Results of Operations and Other Selected Data" section herein.


15


Earnings before taxes and the related operating margin – Our management views earnings before taxes and operating margin as key indicators of our performance. The key drivers of earnings before taxes are same store sales, gross profit, and our ability to control selling, general and administrative expenses. 

Cash flows from operating activities – Cash flow generation supports the general liquidity needs of the Company and funds capital expenditures for our omni-channel platform, distribution and administrative facilities, costs associated with continued improvement of information technology tools, potential strategic acquisitions or investments that may arise from time-to-time and stockholder return initiatives, including cash dividends and share repurchases. We typically generate significant cash flows from operating activities and proportionately higher net income levels in our fourth fiscal quarter in connection with the holiday selling season and sales of cold weather sporting goods and apparel. See further discussion of the Company's cash flows in the "Liquidity and Capital Resources and Changes in Financial Condition" section herein.

Quality of merchandise offerings – To measure acceptance of its merchandise offerings, the Company monitors sell-throughs, inventory turns, gross margins and markdown rates at the department and style level. This analysis helps the Company manage inventory levels to reduce working capital requirements and deliver optimal gross margins by improving merchandise flow and establishing appropriate price points to minimize markdowns.

Store productivity – To assess store-level performance, the Company monitors various indicators, including new store productivity, sales per square foot, store operating contribution margin and store cash flow.
 
CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
As discussed in Item 7. "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" of the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 2, 2019 , filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 29, 2019 , the Company considers its policies on inventory valuation, vendor allowances, goodwill and intangible assets, impairment of long-lived assets and closed store reserves, self-insurance reserves and stock-based compensation to be the most critical in understanding the judgments that are involved in preparing the Company's consolidated financial statements. Our critical accounting policies and estimates did not change materially during the quarter ended May 4, 2019 , except for the adoption of ASU 2016-02, "Leases (Topic 842)" , on February 3, 2019.

13 Weeks Ended May 4, 2019 Compared to the 13 Weeks Ended May 5, 2018
 
Net Sales

Net sales increased 0.6% in the current quarter to $1,920.7 million from $1,909.7 million for the quarter ended May 5, 2018 , due primarily to the growth of our store network. Consolidated same store sales were flat, which included an increase of approximately 15% in eCommerce sales. eCommerce sales penetration increased to approximately 13% of total net sales during the current quarter compared to approximately 11% of total net sales during the quarter ended May 5, 2018 .

Our flat consolidated same store sales were driven by gains in athletic and outdoor apparel and footwear categories, offset by a decline in the hunt category. We believe that our firearms policy changes have contributed to a continuing decline in our hunt business, and the broader hunt industry also remains challenged. We continue to evaluate our strategy for the hunt business and remain on track to remove hunt merchandise from approximately 125 Dick's Sporting Goods stores where the category under-performs and is less relevant in the local market, and utilize this space for categories that are under-served based on the needs of that particular market. Consolidated same store sales results for the current quarter reflected a decrease in transactions of approximately 1.0% , partially offset by an increase in sales per transaction of 1.0% .

Income from operations decreased to $76.1 million in the current quarter from $87.3 million for the quarter ended May 5, 2018 .
 
Gross profit increased 0.6% to $563.8 million in the current quarter from $560.4 million for the quarter ended May 5, 2018 , and increased as a percentage of net sales by 1 basis point compared to the same period last year. This slight improvement was driven by merchandise margins, which increased 20 basis points primarily driven by fewer promotions and favorable merchandise mix, as our hunt business has traditionally had significantly lower merchandise margin rates compared to other categories, and lower occupancy expense as a percent of net sales. These benefits were largely offset by higher freight and eCommerce shipping and fulfillment costs. Occupancy costs decreased $0.9 million in the current quarter from the quarter ended May 5, 2018 . Our occupancy costs, which after the cost of merchandise represent our largest expense within cost of goods sold, are generally fixed in nature and fluctuate based on the number of stores that we operate.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 3.6% to $487.2 million in the current quarter from $470.3 million for the quarter ended May 5, 2018 , and increased as a percentage of net sales by 73 basis points. The quarter ended May 4, 2019 included $7.6 million for a non-cash impairment charge to reduce the carrying value of a corporate aircraft held for sale to its fair market value and $6.6 million of expenses associated with changes in the Company's deferred compensation plan investment values, for which the corresponding investment income was recognized in other income. These expenses were offset by a $6.4 million settlement of a previously accrued litigation contingency. The remaining increase was driven by investments in our growth initiatives to support our long-term strategy.

Pre-opening expenses decreased to $0.6 million in the current quarter from $2.7 million for the quarter ended May 5, 2018 . Pre-opening expenses in any period fluctuate depending on the timing and number of store openings and relocations. We opened one new store in the current quarter compared to eight new stores during the quarter ended May 5, 2018.

Other (Income) Expense

Other income totaled $6.7 million in the current quarter compared to $0.9 million of expense for the quarter ended May 5, 2018. The Company recognizes investment income / expense to reflect changes in its deferred compensation plan investment values with a corresponding charge / reduction to selling, general and administrative costs for the same amount. The Company recognized investment income totaling $6.6 million in the current quarter compared to an investment loss totaling $1.0 million for the quarter ended May 5, 2018, primarily driven by an overall improvement in the equity markets, which impacted its deferred compensation plan investment values.

Income Taxes
 
The Company's effective tax rate decreased to  27.9%  for the current quarter from  28.3%  for the quarter ended May 5, 2018 .

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES AND CHANGES IN FINANCIAL CONDITION

Overview

The Company has a $1.25 billion senior secured revolving credit facility (the "Credit Facility"), which also provides for up to $150 million in the form of letters of credit. Under the Credit Facility, subject to satisfaction of certain conditions, the Company may request an increase of up to $350 million in additional borrowing availability.

On August 3, 2018, the Company amended the Credit Facility to provide that all terms of an accounting or financial nature and all computations of financial amounts and ratios referenced in the Credit Facility will be made without giving effect to any lease obligation recorded pursuant to FASB ASU 2016-02, "Leases (Topic 842)" , to the extent such obligation would not have been recorded as a capital lease obligation prior to adoption of ASU 2016-02.

The Company's liquidity and capital needs have generally been met by cash from operating activities supplemented by borrowings under the Company's Credit Facility as seasonally necessary. The Company generally utilizes its Credit Facility for working capital needs based primarily on the seasonal nature of its operating cash flows, with the Company's peak borrowing level occurring early in the fourth quarter as the Company increases inventory in advance of the holiday selling season.

The Company intends to allocate capital to invest in its future growth, specifically growing and remodeling its store network and eCommerce business together to deliver an omni-channel shopping experience, as well as other long-term strategic investments while returning capital to stockholders through share repurchases and dividends. 

Capital expenditures – We expect fiscal 2019 capital expenditures to be approximately $230 million on a gross basis and approximately $200 million on a net basis, which includes tenant allowances provided by landlords. Normal capital requirements primarily relate to the development of our omni-channel platform, including investments in new and existing stores and eCommerce technology. We reduced our new stores growth rate in fiscal 2019 to seven new Dick's Sporting Goods stores, which represents a significant reduction from fiscal 2018. Approximately two-thirds of our Dick’s Sporting Goods stores will be up for lease renewal at our option over the next five years. We plan to leverage the significant flexibility within our existing real estate portfolio to capitalize on future real estate opportunities over the near and intermediate term as those leases come up for renewal. The Company also plans to continue to invest in improving its eCommerce fulfillment network and corporate information technology capabilities.

Share repurchases – On March 16, 2016, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a five-year share repurchase program of up to $1 billion of the Company's common stock. During the 13 weeks ended May 4, 2019 , the Company repurchased 3.0 million shares of its common stock for $107.3 million , and as of May 4, 2019 has approximately $326.1 million remaining under its current 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. The Company intends to repurchase shares from time-to-time to offset dilution and also may pursue additional repurchases of shares under favorable market conditions. Any future share repurchase programs are subject to the authorization by our Board of Directors and will be dependent upon future earnings, cash flows, financial requirements and other factors.
 
Dividends – During the 13 weeks ended May 4, 2019 , the Company paid $27.0 million of dividends to its stockholders. On May 24, 2019, the Company's Board of Directors authorized and declared a quarterly cash dividend in the amount of $0.275 per share of common stock and Class B common stock payable on June 28, 2019 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on June 14, 2019. The declaration of future dividends and the establishment of the per share amount, record dates and payment dates for any such future dividends are subject to authorization by our Board of Directors, and will be dependent upon multiple factors including future earnings, cash flows, financial requirements and other considerations.

The Company believes cash flows generated by operations and funds available under its Credit Facility will be sufficient to satisfy capital requirements through 2019, including planned inventory investments in key growth categories, capital expenditures, share repurchases, and quarterly dividend payments to its stockholders. The Company may require additional funding should the Company pursue strategic acquisitions or undertake share repurchases, other investments or store expansion rates in excess of historical levels.

Operating Activities

Operating activities consist primarily of net income, adjusted for certain non-cash items and changes in operating assets and liabilities. Adjustments to net income for non-cash items include depreciation and amortization, deferred income taxes and stock-based compensation expense, as well as non-cash gains and losses on the disposal of the Company's assets. Changes in operating assets and liabilities primarily reflect changes in inventories, accounts payable and income taxes payable / receivable, as well as other working capital changes.
 
Cash used in operating activities increased $203.1 million for the 13 weeks ended May 4, 2019 compared to the same period last year due primarily to the following:

Changes in inventory levels at the end of the current fiscal period decreased operating cash flows by $205.0 million compared to the same period last year, primarily due to strategic investments in key growth categories.

Changes in accounts receivable at the end of the current fiscal period decreased operating cash flows by $13.0 million compared to the same period last year, primarily due to the timing of collections for vendor receivables year-over-year.

Changes in deferred construction allowances at the end of the current fiscal period increased operating cash flows by $10.7 million compared to the same period last year, primarily due to year-over-year changes in the timing and amount of payments received for self-developed stores.


21


Investing Activities
 
Cash used in investing activities decreased $2.5 million for the 13 weeks ended May 4, 2019 compared to the same period last year, due to a decrease in gross capital expenditures. The decrease in gross capital expenditures was primarily driven by the reduction in our new store growth rate in the current period and the construction of our fifth distribution facility during the same period last year, offset by higher store enhancements and technology investments in the current year.

Financing Activities

Financing activities consist primarily of the Company's capital return initiatives, including its share repurchase program and cash dividend payments, cash flows generated from stock option exercises and cash activity associated with our Credit Facility. Cash provided by financing activities for the 13 weeks ended May 4, 2019 totaled $247.8 million compared to $71.8 million for the comparable period of the prior year. The Company had higher net Credit Facility borrowings during the 13 weeks ended May 4, 2019 compared to the same period last year, for inventory investments in key categories.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

The Company's off-balance sheet arrangements as of May 4, 2019 primarily relate to purchase obligations for marketing commitments, including naming rights, licenses for trademarks, minimum requirements with its third-party eCommerce fulfillment provider and technology-related and other ordinary course commitments. The Company has excluded these items from the unaudited Consolidated Balance Sheets in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. The Company does not believe that any of these arrangements have, or are reasonably likely to have, a material effect on our financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures, or resources.

Contractual Obligations and Other Commercial Commitments
 
The Company is party to many contractual obligations that involve commitments to make payments to third parties in the ordinary course of business. For a description of the Company's contractual obligations and other commercial commitments as of February 2, 2019 , see the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 2, 2019 , filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 29, 2019 . During the current quarter, there were no material changes with respect to these contractual obligations and other commercial commitments outside the ordinary course of business.

ITEM 3.  QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

There have been no material changes in the Company's market risk exposures from those reported in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 2, 2019 , filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 29, 2019 .
 
ITEM 4.  CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
 
During the first quarter of fiscal 2019, there were no changes in the Company's internal controls over financial reporting that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company's internal controls over financial reporting.

During the quarter, the Company carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the Company's management, including the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Based upon that evaluation, the Company's management, including the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer, concluded that the Company's disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, May 4, 2019 .
 
There are inherent limitations in the effectiveness of any control system, including the potential for human error and the circumvention or overriding of the controls and procedures. Additionally, judgments in decision making can be faulty and breakdowns can occur because of simple errors or mistakes. An effective control system can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the control objectives of the system are adequately met. Accordingly, our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, does not expect that our control system can prevent or detect all errors or fraud. Finally, projections of any evaluation or assessment of effectiveness of a control system to future periods are subject to the risks that, over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in an entity's operating environment or deterioration in the degree of compliance with policies and procedures.

PART II.  OTHER INFORMATION

ITEM 1.  LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
 
The Company is involved in various proceedings that are incidental to the normal course of its business. As of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, the Company does not expect that any of such proceedings will have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial position or results of operations.

ITEM 1A.  RISK FACTORS

Except as identified below, there have been no material changes to the risk factors affecting the Company from those disclosed in Part I, Item 1A. "Risk Factors" of the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended February 2, 2019 , filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 29, 2019 . The discussion of risk factors sets forth the material risks that could affect the Company's financial condition and operations.

If our product costs are adversely affected by foreign trade issues, currency exchange rate fluctuations, increasing prices for raw materials, political instability or other reasons, our sales and profitability may suffer.

A significant portion of the products that we purchase, including those purchased from domestic suppliers, as well as most of our private brand merchandise, is manufactured abroad. Foreign imports subject us to risk relating to changes in import duties, quotas, the introduction of U.S. taxes on imported goods or the extension of U.S. income taxes on our foreign suppliers' sales of imported goods through the adoption of destination-based income tax jurisdiction, loss of "most favored nation" status with the U.S., shipment delays and shipping port constraints, labor strikes, work stoppages or other disruptions, freight cost increases and economic uncertainties. Furthermore, we could face significantly higher U.S. income and similar taxes with respect to sales of products purchased from foreign suppliers if the U.S. were to adopt a system of taxation, such as a border adjustment tax, under which the cost of imported products was not deductible in determining such products' tax base. If such a tax system were adopted, we could also face higher prices for products manufactured or produced abroad that we purchase from our domestic suppliers if they were subject to such a tax. In addition, the U.S. government periodically considers other restrictions on the importation of products obtained by our vendors and us.

General trade tensions between the U.S. and China began escalating in 2018, with multiple rounds of U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods taking effect. Existing tariffs were increased in June 2019, and additional tariffs have been proposed. Furthermore, China or other countries may institute retaliatory trade measures in response to existing or future tariffs imposed by the U.S. that could have a negative impact on our business. If any of these events continue as described, we may need to seek alternative suppliers or vendors, raise prices, or make changes to our operations. The new tariffs and our efforts to mitigate the impact of such tariffs may have a material adverse effect on our results of operations, including sales and profitability.  

If any of these or other factors were to cause a disruption of trade from the countries in which our vendors' supplies or our private brand products' manufacturers are located, our inventory levels may be reduced or the cost of our products may increase. Additionally, we could be impacted by negative publicity or, in some cases, face potential liability to the extent that any foreign manufacturers from whom we directly or indirectly purchase products utilize labor, environmental, workplace safety and other practices that vary from those commonly accepted in the U.S. Also, the prices charged by foreign manufacturers may be affected by the fluctuation of their local currency against the U.S. dollar and the price of raw materials, which could cause the cost of our products to increase and negatively impact our sales or profitability.
