PITTSBURGH, June 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- DICK'S Sporting Goods, Inc. /zigman2/quotes/200566298/composite DKS +0.24% , the largest U.S. based full-line omni-channel sporting goods retailer, today reported sales and earnings results for the first quarter ended May 2, 2020.

First Quarter Results

The Company reported a consolidated net loss for the first quarter ended May 2, 2020 of $143.4 million, or $1.71 per diluted share. As a result of actions taken to support its teammates as well as impacts from its temporary store closures, the Company incurred approximately $62 million of pre-tax expenses, or $0.50 per diluted share, during the current quarter, including $34 million of teammate compensation and safety costs and $28 million of inventory write-downs. The Company reported consolidated net income for the first quarter ended May 4, 2019 of $57.5 million, or $0.61 per diluted share.

On a non-GAAP basis, the Company reported consolidated net income for the first quarter ended May 4, 2019 of $58.4 million, or $0.62 per diluted share. First quarter 2019 non-GAAP results exclude a non-cash asset impairment and the settlement of a litigation contingency. The GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliations are included in a table later in the release under the heading "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations."

Net sales for the first quarter of 2020 decreased 30.6% to approximately $1.33 billion. Consolidated same store sales decreased 29.5%, driven by temporary store closures that started on March 18, 2020 to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.  First quarter 2019 consolidated same store sales were flat.

"Although the business environment of 2020 remains uncertain, DICK'S Sporting Goods is in a position of strength. We believe coming out of the current crisis, health and fitness will become even more important to the consumer. As the leader in the sporting goods retail sector, our relationships with key brands have never been stronger and we are in a great place to support this demand," said Edward W. Stack, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Our experienced management team has a history of successfully navigating difficult market cycles and remains fully committed to managing our business with a long-term view. Perhaps most importantly, our balance sheet is strong, and due to the actions taken when the pandemic first hit, we have enhanced liquidity to emerge from this crisis in an even stronger competitive position. Now, with confidence in our liquidity position and our stores re-opening, we can turn our attention to gaining market share for the remainder of 2020 and positioning our business for profitable growth in 2021."

Lauren R. Hobart, President, added, "Through March 10 [th] our consolidated same store sales increased 7.9%, a clear indication that our strategies were working. Throughout the store closures we continued to serve our athletes online, and our eCommerce sales, including Curbside Contactless Pickup, were tremendous, increasing 210% since we temporarily closed our stores through the end of the first quarter."

Ms. Hobart continued, "As we re-open our stores, the health and safety of our teammates and athletes is our highest priority, and we are following the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as federal, state and local authorities. We are pleased with how our athletes have responded to these measures. Through the first four weeks of the second quarter our consolidated same store sales have decreased only 4.0%, representing a progressive recovery as we re-open our stores and maintain strong sales momentum in our eCommerce business, which has increased over 250%."

eCommerce Sales

eCommerce sales for the first quarter of 2020 increased 110%, including Curbside Contactless Pickup. eCommerce penetration for the first quarter of 2020 was approximately 39% of total net sales, compared to approximately 13% during the first quarter of 2019. Following the Company's temporary store closures through the end of the first quarter of 2020, eCommerce sales increased 210%.

Balance Sheet

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company proactively addressed its liquidity needs during the first quarter of 2020 through two transactions. In March, the Company amended its revolving credit facility to add $255 million of borrowing capacity, bringing total capacity to $1.855 billion. In April, the Company issued $575 million aggregate principal amount of its 3.25% Convertible Senior Notes, which added over $500 million of net proceeds to our cash position.

The Company ended the first quarter of 2020 with $1.5 billion in cash and cash equivalents and $1.4 billion in outstanding borrowings under its revolving credit facility.

Total inventory decreased 2.1% at the end of the first quarter of 2020 as compared to the end of the first quarter of 2019.

Capital Allocation

As previously announced during the quarter, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company has temporarily suspended its share repurchase programs and quarterly dividend program. As its business continues to stabilize, the Company may resume opportunistic share repurchases under its existing authorizations of $1,031 million.

The Company paid previously declared quarterly dividends of $0.3125 per share on March 27, 2020 to shareholders of record as of the end of business on March 20, 2020.

Full Year 2020 Outlook

As previously announced on March 19, 2020, the Company withdrew its fiscal 2020 outlook. The Company is not providing an updated outlook at this time. 

Conference Call Info

The Company will host a conference call today at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time to discuss the first quarter results. Investors will have the opportunity to listen to the earnings conference call over the internet through the Company's website located at investors.DICKS.com. To listen to the live call, please go to the website at least fifteen minutes early to register, download, and install any necessary audio software. For those who cannot listen to the live webcast, it will be archived on the Company's website for approximately twelve months.

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.

Fiscal 2020 Consolidated Same Store Sales

Consolidated same store sales include stores that were temporarily closed as a result of COVID-19. The method of calculating consolidated same store sales varies across the retail industry, including the treatment of temporary store closures as a result of COVID-19. Accordingly, our method of calculating this metric may not be the same as other retailers' methods. For additional information on consolidated same store sales, please see our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, and any subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
