Aug 18, 2015, 07:30 ET from DICK'S Sporting Goods, Inc.

PITTSBURGH, Aug. 18, 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 second quarter ended August 1, 2015.

Second Quarter Results

The Company reported consolidated net income for the second quarter ended August 1, 2015 of $90.8 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, compared to the Company's expectations provided on May 19, 2015 of $0.73 to 0.76 per diluted share. The Company reported consolidated net income for the second quarter ended August 2, 2014 of $69.5 million, or $0.57 per diluted share. Excluding golf restructuring charges in the prior year, net income was $81.7 million, or $0.67 per diluted share. 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 Reconciliations."

Net sales for the second quarter of 2015 increased 7.9% to approximately $1.8 billion. Consolidated same store sales increased 1.2%, compared to the Company's guidance of approximately flat to an increase of 2%. Same store sales for DICK'S Sporting Goods increased 1.5%, against a strong base that included the World Cup. Golf Galaxy decreased 2.9%, representing sequential progress. Second quarter 2014 consolidated same store sales increased 3.2%.

"We are pleased with our second quarter results. We delivered a double-digit increase in earnings by leveraging our omni-channel presence to generate profitable revenue growth and meaningful margin expansion," said Edward W. Stack, Chairman and CEO. "We are seeing the benefits of our key growth pillars, as we continue to open very productive stores while winning online."

Omni-channel Development

eCommerce penetration for the second quarter of 2015 was 7.3% of total net sales, compared to 6.3% during the second quarter of 2014.

In the second quarter, the Company opened seven new DICK'S Sporting Goods stores, one new Field & Stream store and closed three Golf Galaxy stores, as these leases expired.  As of August 1, 2015, the Company operated 619 DICK'S Sporting Goods stores in 46 states, with approximately 33.1 million square feet, 75 Golf Galaxy stores in 29 states, with approximately 1.4 million square feet and 12 Field & Stream stores in seven states, with approximately 0.6 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 second quarter of 2015 with approximately $123 million in cash and cash equivalents and no 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 $288 million to shareholders through share repurchases and quarterly dividends. Total inventory increased 13.9% at the end of the second quarter of 2015 as compared to the end of the second quarter of 2014. This planned increase was due primarily to earlier receipts of back-to-school merchandise and support for the outdoor business.

Also, the Company has amended and extended its revolving credit facility prior to its expiration in December 2016, thereby benefiting from the attractive interest rate environment. The Company has increased its limit from $500 million to $1 billion to support the continued growth of its business.

Year-to-Date Results

The Company reported consolidated net income for the 26 weeks ended August 1, 2015 of $154.2 million, or $1.30 per diluted share. For the 26 weeks ended August 2, 2014, the Company reported consolidated net income of $139.5 million, or $1.14 per diluted share. The Company reported consolidated non-GAAP net income for the 26 weeks ended August 2, 2014 of $143.0 million, or $1.17 per diluted share. 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 Reconciliations."

Net sales for the 26 weeks ended August 1, 2015 increased 8.3% from last year's period to approximately $3.4 billion, reflecting the opening of new stores and a 1.1% increase in consolidated same store sales.

Capital Allocation

During fiscal 2015, the Company has repurchased approximately 2.6 million shares of its common stock at an average cost of $57.09 per share, for a total cost of $150 million. Since starting its $1 billion share repurchase authorization at the beginning of fiscal 2013, the Company has repurchased over $605 million of common stock, and has approximately $395 million remaining under the authorization.

On August 12, 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. The dividend is payable in cash on September 30, 2015 to stockholders of record at the close of business on September 11, 2015.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

As a result, any non-GAAP financial measures presented herein may not be comparable to similar measures provided by other companies.

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.
