Dollar Tree, Inc. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended May 2, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Second Quarter of 2015; Revises Earnings Guidance for Full Year of 2015

Dollar Tree, Inc. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended May 2, 2015. For the period, the company reported net sales increased 8.8% to $2.176 billion from $2.003 billion in the prior year’s first quarter. Consolidated same-store sales increased 3.4% on a constant currency basis, compared to a 2.0% increase in the prior-year period. Adjusted for the impact of Canadian currency fluctuations, the same-store sales increase was 3.1%. Operating income was $232.8 million, compared to $231.9 million for the last year. Income before income taxes was $113.2 million, compared to $223.8 million for the last year. Net income, compared to the prior year's first quarter, including acquisition-related costs, was $69.5 million or $0.34 per diluted share, against $138.3 million or $0.67 per diluted share a year ago. Excluding acquisition-related costs, net income increased approximately $8.0 million to $146.3 million and diluted earnings per share increased 6% to $0.71. Net cash provided by operating activities was $129.8 million, compared to $198.2 million for the last year. Capital expenditures were $66.9 million, compared to $71.9 million for the last year. Adjusted operating income was $243.2 million and adjusted income before income taxes was $237.6 million. The company estimates consolidated net sales for the second quarter of 2015 to range from $2.17 billion to $2.23 billion, based on a low to low-mid single-digit increase in same-store sales and 8.0% square footage growth. Diluted earnings per share, excluding acquisition-related costs, are expected to range from $0.63 to $0.68. The sales range implies a low to low mid-single digit comparable store sales increase and 8% square footage growth. Additionally, the company has not included any acquisition-related costs in its second quarter outlook as it cannot currently forecast the timing of when these costs will be incurred. The company’s guidance also assumes a tax rate of 38.3% for the second quarter Consolidated net sales for full-year 2015 are now expected to range from $9.24 billion to $9.42 billion compared to the company’s previous expected range of $9.21 billion to $9.45 billion. This estimate is based on a low to low-mid single-digit increase in same-store sales, and 7.3% square footage growth. Adjusted for its first quarter results, outlook for the remainder of the year remains unchanged from the company’s original 2015 guidance. The company now anticipates net income per diluted share for full-year 2015, excluding acquisition-related costs, will range from $3.32 to $3.47. This compares to its previous guidance, excluding acquisition-related costs, of $3.30 to $3.50. For 2015, the company expects depreciation and amortization to range from $215 million to $225 million. The company's guidance for 2015 takes into account the actual performance in the first quarter, and except for small refinements to the share count and the tax rate, is unchanged from that which it has issued on February 26. The company’s guidance also assumes a tax rate of 38.1% for the full year.
