General Overview

Hibbett Sports, Inc. operates sporting goods stores in small to mid-sized markets, predominantly in the South, Southwest, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest regions of the United States. We believe Hibbett Sports stores are typically the primary sporting goods retailers in smaller markets due to the extensive selection of premium brand name merchandise, availability of local merchandise, an emphasis on team sports and a high level of customer service. As of May 3, 2014, we operated a total of 939 retail stores in 31 states composed of 921 Hibbett Sports stores and 18 Sports Additions athletic shoe stores.


The Hibbett Sports store is our primary retail format and growth vehicle and is an approximately 5,000 square foot store located primarily in strip centers which are frequently influenced by a Wal-Mart store. Approximately 81% of our Hibbett Sports store base is located in strip centers, which include free-standing stores, while approximately 19% of our Hibbett Sports store base is located in enclosed malls. We expect to continue our store base growth in strip centers versus enclosed malls.

We operate on a 52- or 53-week fiscal year ending on the Saturday nearest to January 31 of each year. The consolidated statement of operations for fiscal year ending January 31, 2015 and February 1, 2014 will include 52 weeks of operations. We became a public company in October 1996 and are currently incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware as Hibbett Sports, Inc.

Comparable store sales data for the periods presented reflects sales for our traditional format Hibbett Sports and Sports Additions stores open throughout the period and the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year. If a store remodel, relocation or expansion results in the store being closed for a significant period of time, its sales are removed from the comparable store base until it has been open a full 12 months. During the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2014, 851 stores were included in comparable store net sales.

Executive Summary

Net sales for the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2014, increased 9.1% to $261.9 million compared with $240.0 million for the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2013. The net sales increase was attributable to new stores and comparable store sales. Comparable store sales increased 4.1%, driven by strong performances in footwear and activewear, offset by weaker performance in licensed products and equipment. Gross profit was negatively impacted by promotional activity related to the management of inventory levels and transitional costs related to our new wholesale and logistics facility.

During the first quarter of Fiscal 2015, we opened 16 new stores, expanded 4 high performing stores and closed 4 underperforming stores, bringing the store base to 939 in 31 states as of May 3, 2014. We ended the first quarter of Fiscal 2015 with $110.3 million of available cash and cash equivalents on the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheet and full availability under our credit facilities. We also acquired 227,443 shares of our common stock for a total expenditure of $15.3 million during the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2014.

Significant Accounting Estimates

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in conformity with U.S. GAAP. The preparation of these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements requires the use of estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the periods presented. Actual results could differ from those estimates and assumptions. Our significant accounting policies and estimates are described more fully in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 1, 2014, and filed on March 31, 2014. There have been no changes in our accounting policies in the current period that had a material impact on our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.
