Results of Operations and Financial Condition, Change in Directors or Principal Offi


Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On May 30, 2014, Big Lots, Inc. ("we," "us" or "our") issued a press release and conducted a conference call, both of which reported our first quarter fiscal 2014 unaudited results, provided initial guidance for the second quarter of fiscal 2014, updated guidance for fiscal 2014, and provided an update on the status of our previously announced $125 million share repurchase program.

The press release and conference call both included "non-GAAP financial measures," as that term is defined by Rule 101 of Regulation G (17 CFR Part 244) and Item 10 of Regulation S-K (17 CFR Part 229). Specifically, the following non-GAAP financial measures were included: (i) adjusted selling and administrative expenses; (ii) adjusted selling and administrative expense rate;
(iii) adjusted operating profit; (iv) adjusted operating profit rate; (v) adjusted income tax expense; (vi) adjusted effective income tax rate; (vii) adjusted income from continuing operations; (viii) adjusted net income; (ix) adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations; and (x) adjusted diluted earnings per share.

The non-GAAP financial measures exclude from the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") the following items for the periods noted:

                                                 Fiscal 2013   Fiscal 2013   Fiscal 2013
Item                                            First Quarter Second Quarter  Full Year
$3.2 million, or $0.06 per diluted share,
after-tax accrual of a loss contingency               X                           X
concerning a store-related legal matter
$0.4 million, or $0.01 per diluted share,
after-tax adjustment for the settlement of the                      X             X
store-related legal matter
$2.2 million, or $0.04 per diluted share,                                         X
after-tax gain on the sale of real estate

The press release posted in the Investor Relations section of our website contains a presentation of the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP and a reconciliation of the difference between the non-GAAP financial measures and the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Our management believes that disclosure of the non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to investors because the non-GAAP financial measures present an alternative and more relevant method for measuring our operating performance, excluding special items included in the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, which our management believes are more indicative of our ongoing operating results and financial condition. These non-GAAP financial measures, along with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, are used by our management to evaluate our operating performance.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures as reported by us may not be comparable to similarly titled items reported by other companies.

Attached as exhibits to this Form 8-K are copies of our May 30, 2014 press release (Exhibit 99.1) and the transcript of our May 30, 2014 conference call (Exhibit 99.2), including information concerning forward-looking statements and factors that may affect our future results. The information in Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2 is being furnished, not filed, pursuant to Item 2.02 of this Form 8-K. By furnishing the information in this Form 8-K and the attached exhibits, we are making no admission as to the materiality of any information in this Form 8-K or the exhibits.
