"I am proud of what we have accomplished as a team. We delivered solid sales and earnings growth this quarter, which represented our 14th consecutive quarter of positive comparable sales growth," stated Mike MacDonald, President and Chief Executive Officer, DSW Inc.

Mr. MacDonald continued, "This quarter concluded a very strong year for the Company in which we grew total sales by 12%, generated a two year comparable store gain of 13.8% and increased earnings per share by 12%. We continue to make excellent progress on our strategic initiatives, all of which are designed to enhance our shopping experience, regardless of how and where the customer chooses to shop. We also rewarded our shareholders with dividends totaling $128 million in 2012."

Fourth Quarter Operating Results

  • Sales increased 15.7% to $594.3 million compared to last year's fourth quarter sales of $513.7 million. The increase includes an incremental sales benefit of $32.3 million for the 53rd week.
  • For the thirteen week period, comparable sales increased by 3.6%. This follows an increase of 5.6% during the fourth quarter of 2011.
  • Reported net income was $27.1 million, or $0.59 per diluted share on 45.7 million weighted average shares outstanding, which included $4.2 million in legacy charges from RVI. This compares to Reported net income in the fourth quarter of 2011 of $19.4 million, which included a non-cash charge of $3.7 million related to the merger with RVI. Reported EPS for the fourth quarter last year was $0.37 per share.
  • Net income, adjusted for one-time items was $31.4 million, or $0.69 per diluted share on 45.7 million weighted average shares outstanding. This compares to Adjusted net income for the same period last year of $23.1 million, or $0.51 per diluted share on 45.3 million weighted average shares outstanding. 

Full Year Operating Results

  • Fiscal 2012 sales increased 11.5% to $2,257.8 million from $2,024.3 million for fiscal 2011.
  • On a fifty-two week basis, comparable sales for fiscal 2012 increased 5.5% which came on top of an increase of 8.3% for fiscal 2011.
  • Reported net income in 2012 was $146.4 million, or $3.23 per diluted share on 45.3 million weighted average shares outstanding, which included $9.4 million in after-tax non-cash charges related to RVI and a $3.6 million after-tax award from credit card litigation. This compares to Reported net income in 2011 of $174.8 million, which included a non-cash benefit of $38.6 million related to the merger with RVI. Reported EPS last year was $4.54
  • Fiscal 2012 net income, adjusted for one-time items, was $152.2 million or $3.35 per diluted share on 45.5 million weighted average shares outstanding. This compares to Adjusted net income for last year of $136.1 million, or $3.00 per diluted share on 45.3 million weighted average shares outstanding. 

Fourth Quarter Balance Sheet Highlights

  • Cash, short term and long term investments totaled $410 million compared to $430 million last year.
  • Inventories were $394 million compared to $334 million last year, an increase of 17.8%, in line with expectations. On a cost per square foot basis, inventories supporting DSW stores increased by 1.0% at the end of quarter. 
  • The company did not repurchase any shares under its $100 million share buyback program this quarter.
  • The company closed on the acquisition of its corporate headquarters and distribution center in Columbus, OH during the fourth quarter for $72 million

Fiscal 2013 Annual Outlook

The company's sales trend has softened in the first six weeks of the 2013 fiscal year with comparable sales declining by 5% over that period.  Given this weak start, which is markedly different from DSW's consistent record of solid comparable sales growth over the last fourteen quarters,  it is difficult to project full year sales and profit performance with confidence.  Internally, the company is now managing merchandise receipts and inventories assuming flat comparable sales performance in the first half of the year.  If comparable sales for the full year were to be flat, the company estimates diluted earnings per share of $3.30 to $3.40, excluding any impact from the merger with RVI and the company's luxury initiative. The company intends to discuss the luxury initiative on its earnings conference call.

This release contains certain Adjusted financial measures. These measures are included as a complement to Reported results because management believes these Adjusted financial measures help explain underlying performance trends in DSW's business and provide useful information to both management and investors. The unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and Reconciliation of Adjusted Results should not be construed as an alternative to the Reported results determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Further, DSW's definition of Adjusted income information may differ from similarly titled measures used by other companies. While it is not possible to predict future results, management believes the Adjusted information is useful to investors for the assessment of the ongoing operations of DSW. The unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and Reconciliation of Adjusted Results should be read in conjunction with DSW's and RVI's historical financial statements and notes thereto contained in DSW's and RVI's quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and annual report on Form 10-K.
