Dick’s Sporting Goods, Inc. reported fourth-quarter earnings nearly doubled year-over-year on an adjusted basis as sales ran up 19.6 percent.  At the mid-point of its expected range, Dick’s sees sales in 2021 climbing 2 percent from 2020 and 11 percent versus 2019.
 
Fourth Quarter Results
Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2020 were $3.13 billion, an increase of 19.8 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2019. Results topped Wall Street’s consensus estimate of $3.07 billion. The increase was driven by a 19.3 percent increase in consolidated same-store sales, which included an increase in e-commerce sales of 57 percent. E-commerce penetration for the fourth quarter of 2020 was approximately 32 percent of total net sales, compared to approximately 25 percent during the fourth quarter of 2019. Fourth-quarter 2019 consolidated same-store sales increased 5.3 percent.
 
The company reported consolidated net income for the fourth quarter ended January 30, 2021 of $219.6 million, or $2.21 per diluted share. As a result of actions taken to prioritize the health and well-being of its teammates and athletes, the company incurred approximately $51 million of pre-tax incremental teammate compensation and safety costs in response to COVID-19, or 38 cents per diluted share, net of tax, during the 13 weeks ended January 30, 2021. The company reported consolidated net income for the fourth quarter ended February 1, 2020 of $69.8 million, or $0.81 per diluted share.
 
On a non-GAAP basis excluding non-recurring items, earnings rose 98.6 percent to $225.0 million, or $2.43 per share, from $113.3 million, or $1.32, a year ago. Non-GAAP consolidated net income for the fourth quarter ended January 30, 2021 excluded non-cash amortization of the debt discount associated with the company’s convertible senior notes and included the share impact of the convertible note hedge purchased by the company, which is anti-dilutive for GAAP purposes. Non-GAAP consolidated net income for the fourth quarter ended February 1, 2020 excluded hunt restructuring charges.
 
Adjusted EPS at $2.43 came in well ahead of Wall Street’s consensus estimate of $2.21.
 
“We’ve never had a year quite like 2020. We were challenged in numerous ways, as were so many others, but as an organization, we not only survived – we thrived, delivering record-setting sales and earnings,” said Ed Stack, executive chairman and chief merchandising officer. “Most importantly, we cared for each other and our communities every step of the way. We prioritized the health and safety of our teammates and athletes and invested in our frontline hourly store and distribution center teammates through our premium pay program. Additionally, to help kids get back on the field, we donated $30 million to our Foundation to support Sports Matter and other charitable programs within the communities we serve.”
 
“We are very pleased with our strong fourth-quarter sales and earnings results,” said Lauren Hobart, president and chief executive officer. “The strength of our diverse category portfolio, technology capabilities and advanced omnichannel execution once again helped us capitalize on the favorable shifts in consumer demand across golf, outdoor activities, home fitness and active lifestyle. Our performance is a testament to the strong execution from our 50,000 dedicated teammates who continued to safely serve our athletes and communities.”
 
Hobart continued, “It’s clear that our strategies over the past several years are working and have set us up for long-term success. As we enter 2021, our business has so much momentum, and we have been pleased with our start to the year. Our focus in 2021 will center around enhancing our existing strategies to accelerate our core and enable long-term growth.”

The company ended the fourth quarter of 2020 with approximately $1.7 billion in cash and cash equivalents and no outstanding borrowings under its $1.855 billion revolving credit facility. In April, the company issued a $575 million aggregate principal amount of 3.25 percent Convertible Senior Notes, which added over $500 million of net proceeds to its cash position.
 
Total inventory decreased 11.3 percent at the end of the fourth quarter of 2020 as compared to the end of the fourth quarter of 2019.

2021 Outlook
Dick’s said due to the uneven nature of sales and earnings in 2020, the company planned 2021 off of a 2019 baseline and for the same reason believes it is important to compare 2021 against both 2019 and 2020.
