“During our fourth quarter conference call, we indicated our business had
accelerated into the first quarter,” said Tommy Millner, Cabela’s Chief
Executive Officer. “We are pleased to report that this trend has continued
through today. These improvements are in both our Retail and Direct channels.
This growth is coming from most of our merchandise categories. As a result, we
expect first quarter comparable store sales to increase at least at a
high-teens rate. We also expect direct revenue to increase at a low to
mid-teens rate. Accordingly, first quarter earnings per diluted share are
expected to be $0.10 to $0.15 above current external consensus estimates.”
