"DSW's first quarter performance demonstrated remarkable execution flexibility in a time of unprecedented swings in weather patterns. Our merchandising and supply chain teams were able to adjust merchandise receipts in weather sensitive categories while continuing to support trending categories with fresh product flow. We were pleased with the strong sales rebound in the final four weeks of the quarter that allowed us to minimize our comparable sales decline and exit the quarter with well positioned inventories," stated Mike MacDonald, President and Chief Executive Officer, DSW Inc.

Mr. MacDonald continued, "We are confident in the long term growth potential of our business, which is reflected in our decision to raise our regular quarterly dividend by 39% from $0.18 per share to $0.25 per share. For the full year we expect same store sales to range from flat to 2% growth and Adjusted EPS to range from $3.40 to $3.60 per share." 

First Quarter Operating Results

  • Sales increased 7.7% to $601.4 million compared to last year's first quarter sales of $558.6 million.
  • For the thirteen week period ended May 4, 2013, comparable sales decreased by 2.4%. This follows an increase of 7.6% during the thirteen week period ended April 28, 2012.
  • Reported net income was $34.5 million, or $0.75 per diluted share on 45.8 million weighted average shares outstanding, which included a net charge of $11.4 million, or $0.25 per share from our luxury test, due mostly to an inventory valuation reserve.  This compares to Reported net income in the first quarter of 2012 of $39.9 million, which included a non-cash charge of $4.3 million related to legacy charges from RVI. Reported EPS for the first quarter last year was $0.89 per share.
  • Net income, adjusted for the net charge from our luxury test, was $45.9 million, or $1.00 per diluted share on 45.8 million weighted average shares outstanding. This compares to Adjusted net income for the same period last year of $44.1 million, or $0.98 per diluted share on 45.2 million weighted average shares outstanding. 

First Quarter Balance Sheet Highlights

  • Cash, short term and long term investments totaled $430 million compared to $448 million in the first quarter last year.
  • Inventories were $395 million compared to $373 million during the first quarter last year, an increase of 6%, in line with expectations. On a cost per square foot basis, inventories supporting DSW stores decreased by 5% at the end of quarter. 

Regular Dividend and Share Repurchase

Non-GAAP Measures

The unaudited reconciliation of adjusted results should not be construed as an alternative to the reported results determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). These financial measures are not based on any standardized methodology and are not necessarily comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. The company believes that this non-GAAP information is useful as an additional means for investors to evaluate the company's operating performance, when reviewed in conjunction with the company's GAAP statements. These amounts are not determined in accordance with GAAP and therefore, should not be used exclusively in evaluating the company's business and operations.
