HIBBETT REPORTS THIRD QUARTER RESULTS

Earnings Per Share Increases 41.2%

Net Sales Increase 20.0%

Comparable Store Sales Up 8.4%

Raises Fiscal 2006 Guidance

Increases Stock Repurchase Authorization by $40.0 Million

 

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (November 17, 2005) – Hibbett Sporting Goods, Inc. (NASDAQ/NM: HIBB), a sporting goods retailer, today announced results for the third quarter ended October 29, 2005.

Financial Highlights

Net sales for the 13-week period ended October 29, 2005, increased 20.0% to $110.6 million compared with $92.1 million for the 13-week period ended October 30, 2004. Comparable store sales increased 8.4% in the third quarter of fiscal 2006. Net income for the third fiscal quarter increased 33.6% to $8.2 million compared with restated net income of $6.1 million in the third fiscal quarter of last year. Earnings per diluted share increased 41.2% to $0.24 compared with restated diluted earnings per share of $0.17 in the prior year. Comparable store net sales data reflects sales for our Hibbett Sports and Sports Additions stores open through the 13-week period and the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year.

 

Net sales for the 39-week period ended October 29, 2005, increased 18.1% to $319.4 million compared with $270.5 million for the 39-week period ended October 30, 2004. Comparable store sales increased 6.7% in the first nine months of fiscal 2006. Net income for the first nine months of fiscal 2006 increased 39.4% to $23.7 million compared with restated net income of $17.0 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2005. Earnings per diluted share increased 44.7% to $0.68 compared with restated diluted earnings per share of $0.47 in the prior year. Comparable store net sales data reflects sales for our Hibbett Sports and Sports Additions stores open through the 39-week period and the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year.

 

Hibbett opened 19 new stores and closed one store during the third quarter, bringing the store base to 526 in 22 states as of October 29, 2005. The Company plans to open a net of approximately 65 to 70 new stores in fiscal 2006, including a net of approximately 21 to 26 stores in the fourth quarter.

 

Mickey Newsome, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "A strong comparable store sales performance from all three product categories, continued improvement in margins and the benefit of post-hurricane sales produced another record quarter. Footwear was our largest gainer with a double-digit increase led by kids and cleated categories. Year over year operating income increased 104 basis points in spite of hurricane related expenses and the comparison to an outstanding third quarter last year. We estimate that the impact from strong post-hurricane sales in our affected markets added approximately 2.0% to 3.0% to our comparable store sales in the quarter."

 

Fiscal 2006 Outlook

For the fourth quarter ending January 28, 2006, the Company expects to report earnings per diluted share of approximately $0.27 to $0.29 and a comparable store sales increase of 3.0% to 5.0% compared with earnings of $0.23 per diluted share in the prior-year period. Guidance for

 



 

fiscal 2006 is estimated at approximately $0.96 to $0.98 per diluted share and a comparable store sales increase in the mid single-digit range.

Mr. Newsome added, "Since 1945, Hibbett has successfully established a ‘home-town niche’ in markets primarily in the Sunbelt. The Hibbett growth story has been far more than new store growth as we have consistently delivered strong sales and earnings. We are focused on continuing the Hibbett growth story during fiscal 2006, and the sales and earnings pace established through the first three quarters position us for another record year."

 

The per share results reported for all periods presented herein reflect the effect of the three-for-two stock split that was distributed on September 27, 2005, to stockholders of record on September 9, 2005.

 

Stock Repurchase Program

The Company also announced that the Board of Directors has increased its authorization to repurchase the Company’s common stock by $40.0 million to $100.0 million through August 2006. After considering past stock repurchases, approximately $44.5 million of the total authorization now remains for future stock repurchases.

 

During the third quarter, the Company repurchased 1.3 million shares of common stock for a total expenditure of $29.9 million, bringing the total shares repurchased since the inception of the program in August 2004 to 2.8 million shares for a total expenditure of $55.5 million.
