PITTSBURGH, May 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dick's Sporting Goods, Inc. (NYSE: DKS) today reported sales and earnings results for the first quarter ended April 28, 2012.

First Quarter Results

The Company reported consolidated net income for the first quarter ended April 28, 2012 of $57.2 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, exceeding the Company's earnings expectations provided on March 6, 2012 of $0.36 to 0.38 per diluted share. For the first quarter ended April 30, 2011, the Company reported consolidated net income of $37.5 million, or $0.30 per diluted share.

Net sales for the first quarter of 2012 increased by 15.1% to $1.3 billion as compared to the first quarter of 2011 due primarily to an 8.4% increase in consolidated same store sales and the growth of the Company's store network. The consolidated same store sales increase consisted of a 7.3% increase at Dick's Sporting Goods stores, a 12.6% increase at Golf Galaxy and a 33.4% increase in the Company's eCommerce business.

"We had an exceptionally strong first quarter as we generated record earnings with a 50% increase in earnings per share on 15% sales growth. We also maintained a healthy balance sheet while returning capital to stockholders through our dividend and share repurchase programs," said Edward W. Stack, Chairman and CEO. "For 2012, we are raising our full year guidance as we continue to invest in new stores and our eCommerce business as well as our margin accelerators including inventory management, private brands, and product mix shift."

New Stores

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

As of April 28, 2012, the Company operated 486 Dick's Sporting Goods stores in 44 states, with approximately 26.5 million square feet and 81 Golf Galaxy stores in 30 states, with approximately 1.3 million square feet.

Balance Sheet

The Company ended the first quarter of 2012 with $521 million in cash and cash equivalents and did not have any outstanding borrowings under its $500 million revolving credit facility.  At the end of the first quarter of 2011, the Company had $533 million in cash and cash equivalents and did not have any outstanding borrowings under its credit facility.

Inventory per square foot was 6.6% higher at the end of the first quarter of 2012 as compared to the end of the first quarter of 2011.  

Share Repurchase Program

On January 11, 2012, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a 12-month share repurchase program of up to $200 million of the Company's common stock. The Company initiated the program to offset the dilutive effect of the issuance of shares expected in connection with the expiration in 2013 of a substantial number of stock options issued following the Company's 2002 initial public offering, which are anticipated to be exercised in 2012. 

In the first quarter, the Company repurchased 2.1 million shares of its common stock at an average cost of $49.39 per share, for a total cost of approximately $104 million.

The Company completed the share repurchase program on May 14, 2012. In total, the Company repurchased approximately 4.1 million shares of its common stock at an average cost of $49.33 per share, for a total cost of approximately $200 million. The Company financed the repurchase program from cash on hand.

Dividend

On May 14, 2012, the Company's Board of Directors authorized and declared a quarterly dividend in the amount of $0.125 per share on the Company's common stock and Class B common stock. The dividend is payable in cash on June 29, 2012 to stockholders of record at the close of business on June 1, 2012.

Investment in JJB Sports

On April 27, 2012, the Company closed on its previously announced 20 million pounds Sterling strategic investment in JJB Sports plc, a leading U.K. sports retailer.  Under the terms of the agreement, the Company purchased 18.75 million pounds in junior secured convertible notes and 1.25 million pounds in ordinary shares of JJB Sports, for a total investment of approximately $32.0 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting the Company's financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), the Company provides information regarding earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation ("EBITDA"); a reconciliation from the Company's gross capital expenditures, net of tenant allowances; and calculations of consolidated and Dick's Sporting Goods new store productivity.  These measures are considered non-GAAP and are not preferable to GAAP financial information; however, the Company believes this information provides additional measures of performance that the Company's management, analysts 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/investors.

EBITDA

EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other generally accepted accounting principles measure of performance or liquidity. EBITDA, as the Company has calculated it, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. EBITDA is a key metric used by the Company that provides a measurement of profitability that eliminates the effect of changes resulting from financing decisions, tax regulations, and capital investments.
