Dick's Sporting Goods Reports Third Quarter Results:

- EPS Increases 43% over Last Year to $0.10, Exceeds Guidance

- Increases Full Year Guidance

PITTSBURGH, Nov. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Dick's Sporting Goods, Inc. (NYSE: DKS) today reported sales and earnings results for the third quarter ended November 3, 2007. The results include the operating results of Golf Galaxy for 2007 from the acquisition date, but not for 2006 as Golf Galaxy was acquired on February 13, 2007.

Third Quarter Results

Net income increased 57% to $12.2 million and earnings per diluted share increased 43% to $0.10, compared to prior year net income of $7.8 million, or $0.07 per diluted share. Earnings guidance provided on August 21, 2007 was for earnings per diluted share of $0.05 - 0.06. The operating results of Golf Galaxy are included in the current period results.

Net sales for the quarter increased 18% to $838.8 million due to the opening of new stores and the inclusion of Golf Galaxy in this years' quarterly results (which will be included in Dick's Sporting Goods comparable store sales calculation beginning in Q2 2008), partially offset by a comparable store sales decrease of 2.5% (or a decrease of 1.0% adjusting for the shifted retail calendar). Comparable store sales at Dick's stores were in- line with our guidance and compared to an 8.9% increase in Q3 last year. Comparable store sales for Golf Galaxy on a proforma basis decreased 2.7%, or increased 4.7% after adjusting for the shifted retail calendar.

"Our performance this quarter demonstrates once again how our emphasis on execution, combined with the strength of our business model delivers consistent financial performance. Improved margins, greater efficiencies, the strength of our golf business and strong cash flow continue to drive our earnings increases. As we head into our seasonally largest quarter, our inventory is on plan and our stores are well positioned to deliver solid results," said Edward W. Stack, Chairman and CEO.

New Stores

In the third quarter, the Company opened 25 Dick's Sporting Goods stores. The stores that opened in the third quarter are listed in a table later in the release under the heading "Store Count and Square Footage".

Year-to-Date Results

Net income for the 39 weeks ended November 3, 2007 increased 82% to $81.9 million and earnings per diluted share increased 73% to $0.71, as compared to prior year net income of $44.9 million, or $0.41 per diluted share. The operating results of Golf Galaxy have been included in the results beginning with the February 13, 2007 date of acquisition.

Net sales increased 28% to $2,675.8 million due to a comparable store sales increase of 2.3% (or 1.7% adjusting for the shifted retail calendar, compared to a 7.7% increase year-to-date last year), the opening of new stores, and the inclusion of Golf Galaxy in this year's results. Comparable store sales for Golf Galaxy on a proforma basis increased 2.2%, or 2.8% after adjusting for the shifted retail calendar.

Current 2007 Outlook

The Company's current outlook for 2007 is based on current expectations and includes "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act and Section 21E of the Exchange Act as described later in this release. Although the Company believes that comments reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, it can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct.

    -- Full Year 2007 - (52-Week Year) Comparisons to Fiscal 2006 -
       (53-Week Year)
       -- We are currently increasing earnings guidance for the full year.
          Based on an estimated 117 million diluted shares outstanding, the
          Company is increasing its consolidated earnings per diluted share
          guidance from the previous estimate of approximately $1.24 - 1.25 to
          the new estimate of approximately $1.29.  This new guidance
          represents an approximate 26% increase over earnings per diluted
          share for the full year 2006 of $1.02 and includes the expected
          results of Golf Galaxy, which we continue to expect to be accretive
          for the year.

       -- Comparable store sales for Dick's Sporting Goods stores are expected
          to increase approximately 2.0% compared to a 6.0% increase last
          year.

       -- The Company has opened 46 new Dick's Sporting Goods stores and
          relocated one Dick's Sporting Goods store, completing the new store
          program for Dick's stores in 2007. The Company expects to open 16
          new Golf Galaxy stores in 2007.

    -- Fourth Quarter 2007 - (13 weeks compared to 14 weeks last year)

       -- Based on an estimated 119 million diluted shares outstanding, the
          Company anticipates consolidated earnings per diluted share of
          approximately $0.59, as compared to $0.60 in 2006.  The year-over-
          year comparison is impacted by several factors, including the shift
          in the 2007 retail calendar, which positively impacted Q1 and Q2
          this year and is offset in Q3 and Q4.  Additionally, the year-over-
          year comparison is impacted by the 53rd week in fiscal 2006, which
          provided an extra week of operations and included the favorable
          impact of sales of licensed merchandise relating to the Super Bowl,
          which combined contributed approximately $0.05 to our 2006 earnings.
          Further, the inclusion of Golf Galaxy is approximately $0.04 per
          share dilutive in the fourth quarter of 2007.

       -- Comparable store sales for Dick's stores are expected to increase
          approximately 2.0%, or approximately 2.5%, adjusting for the shifted
          retail calendar which compares to a 2.0% increase in Q4 last year.
          Golf Galaxy will be included in the quarterly comparable store base
          beginning in Q2 2008, which will be the first full quarter following
          the anniversary of the date of acquisition.

       -- The Company expects to open four new Golf Galaxy stores.

(1) The unaudited proforma results present information as if Golf Galaxy had been acquired at the beginning of the periods. The proforma amounts include certain reclassifications to Golf Galaxy amounts to conform them to the Company's reporting calendar, an increase in pre-tax interest expense for the 13 and 39 weeks ended of $2,952 and $8,572 respectively, to reflect the increase in borrowings under the amended credit facility to finance the acquisition as if it had occurred at the beginning of the periods and use of the statutory tax rate of the Company in effect during the periods presented to determine net income. The proforma amounts do not reflect any benefits from economies which might be achieved from combining the operations. The proforma information does not necessarily reflect the actual results that would have occurred had the companies been combined during the periods presented, nor is it necessarily indicative of the future results of operations of the combined companies.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has provided non-GAAP financial information in this earnings release which includes comparable store sales as if Golf Galaxy had been acquired at the beginning of the periods presented. The proforma financial information is considered non-GAAP and is not preferable to GAAP financial information; however, the Company believes this information provides additional measures of performance that the Company's management and investors can use to compare core, operating results between reporting periods. These non-GAAP measures are provided below and on the Company's website at http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/ (click on the Investor Relations link at the top of the home page).
