DICK'S Sporting Goods Reports Second Quarter Results; Delivers 3.2% Increase in Same Store Sales and Raises Full Year Guidance
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 3, 2019.
Second Quarter Results
The Company reported consolidated net income for the second quarter ended August 3, 2019 of $112.5 million, or $1.26 per diluted share. The Company reported consolidated net income for the second quarter ended August 4, 2018 of $119.4 million, or $1.20 per diluted share.
Net sales for the second quarter of 2019 increased 3.8% to approximately $2.26 billion. Consolidated same store sales increased 3.2%. Second quarter 2018 consolidated same store sales decreased 4.0%, 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 are very pleased with our second quarter results, as we delivered a 3.2% comp sales increase and earnings per diluted share above last year. Our strong comp sales performance was driven by increases in both average ticket and transactions and represented our strongest quarterly comp since 2016. We saw growth across each of our three primary categories of hardlines, apparel and footwear, our brick-and-mortar stores comped positively and our eCommerce channel remained strong, increasing 21%," said Edward W. Stack, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Our key strategies and investments are working, our major headwinds are behind us and we've bent the curve on sales. We are very enthusiastic about our business and are pleased to increase our full year sales and earnings outlook."
"During the second quarter, we made great progress in executing against our strategic priorities and investments," added Lauren R. Hobart, President. "Our stores have really championed our new service standards, and their efforts are moving the needle by supporting improved conversion rates and our return to positive brick-and-mortar store comps during the second quarter. Additionally, we remain focused on continuously improving our online experience, and the opening of our two new eCommerce fulfillment centers earlier this week will provide our athletes with faster and more reliable delivery."
eCommerce sales for the second quarter of 2019 increased 21%. eCommerce penetration for the second quarter of 2019 was approximately 12% of total net sales, compared to approximately 11% during the second quarter of 2018.
In the second quarter, the Company opened two new DICK'S Sporting Goods stores and closed two DICK'S Sporting Goods stores. As of August 3, 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."
The Company ended the second quarter of 2019 with approximately $116.7 million in cash and cash equivalents and approximately $441.5 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 $502 million to shareholders through share repurchases and quarterly dividends.
Total inventory increased 19.0% at the end of the second quarter of 2019 as compared to the end of the second quarter of 2018. This planned increase was due primarily to strategic investments to support key growth categories.
The Company also amended and extended its revolving credit facility as it increased its limit from $1.25 billion to $1.6 billion and extended the maturity to June 28, 2024 under substantially the same terms.
The Company reported consolidated net income for the 26 weeks ended August 3, 2019 of $170.1 million, or $1.85 per diluted share. For the 26 weeks ended August 4, 2018, the Company reported consolidated net income of $179.5 million, or $1.78 per diluted share.
On a non-GAAP basis, the Company reported consolidated net income for the 26 weeks ended August 3, 2019 of $171.0 million, or $1.86 per diluted share, excluding a non-cash asset impairment and the favorable 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 26 weeks ended August 3, 2019 increased 2.3% to approximately $4.18 billion. Consolidated same store sales increased 1.7%. Consolidated same store sales decreased 3.3% for the 26-weeks ended August 4, 2018, adjusted for the calendar shift due to the 53rd week in 2017, which we believe is the best view of the business.
On August 19, 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 September 27, 2019 to stockholders of record at the close of business on September 13, 2019.
During the second quarter of 2019, the Company repurchased approximately 4.5 million shares of its common stock at an average cost of $35.52 per share, for a total cost of $159.3 million. Under the five-year share repurchase program authorized by the Board of Directors in March 2016, the Company has repurchased $833 million of common stock and has approximately $167 million remaining under the program. On June 12, 2019, the Company's Board of Directors authorized an additional five-year share repurchase program of up to $1 billion of the Company's common stock. The Company plans to continue to purchase under the 2016 program until it is exhausted or expired.
On August 22, 2019, the Company completed the sale of two of its technology subsidiaries, Blue Sombrero and Affinity Sports, to Stack Sports for $45 million. Stack Sports has no affiliation with Edward W. Stack, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. The sale is expected to result in a one-time gain which will be determined later in the third quarter.

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.
