Big Lots Inc. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended May 2, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Second Quarter of Fiscal 2015; Revises Earnings Guidance for the Full Year of Fiscal 2015

Big Lots Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended May 2, 2015. The company reported income from continuing operations of $32.3 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 ended May 2, 2015 compared to income from continuing operations of $28.6 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2014. Net sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 decreased 0.1% to $1,280.5 million against $1,281.3 million a year ago, as comparable store sales increase was offset by a slightly lower store count compared to last year. Operating profit was $52,645,000, income from continuing operations before income taxes was $52,177,000 and net income was $32,213,000 or $0.60 per diluted share against operating profit of $47,185,000, income from continuing operations before income taxes of $46,835,000 and net income of $3,348,000 or $0.06 per diluted share a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was $87,525,000 against $102,166,000 a year ago. Capital expenditures were $39.3 million compared to $16 million last year. The increase in CapEx was planned and directly related to its SPP investments in coolers and freezers, the company’s register refresh program and the company’s e-commerce initiatives. For the second quarter of fiscal 2015, the company estimates income from continuing operations will be in the range of $0.31 to $0.35 per diluted share, compared to income from continuing operations of $0.31 per diluted share for the second quarter of fiscal 2014. This guidance is based on an estimated comparable store sales increase in the 2% to 3% range compared to a 1.7% comparable store sales increase in second quarter of fiscal 2014. Based on the actual results for the first quarter and the guidance provided for the second quarter, the company is updating guidance for the full year of fiscal 2015. It estimates fiscal 2015 income from continuing operations will be in the range of $2.80 to $2.90 per diluted share compared to prior guidance of $2.75 to $2.90 per diluted share. This compares to income from continuing operations of $2.46 per diluted share for fiscal 2014.
