DICK'S SPORTING GOODS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1.  Basis of Presentation

Dick's Sporting Goods, Inc. (together with its subsidiaries, the "Company") is an authentic full-line sports and fitness specialty omni-channel retailer offering a broad assortment of high quality, competitively-priced brand name sporting goods equipment, apparel and footwear in a specialty store environment. When used in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, unless the context otherwise requires or unless otherwise specified, any reference to "year" is to our fiscal year and the terms "we", "us", "the Company" and "our" refer to Dick's Sporting Goods, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries.
 
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared by us in accordance with the requirements for Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and do not include all the disclosures normally required in annual consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP").  The interim consolidated financial statements are unaudited and have been prepared on the same basis as the annual audited consolidated financial statements.  In the opinion of management, such unaudited consolidated financial statements include all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of the interim financial information.  This unaudited interim financial information should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended February 2, 2013 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 22, 2013.  Operating results for the 13 and 39 weeks ended November 2, 2013 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending February 1, 2014 or any other period.
 
Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

Reclassifications Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income

In February 2013, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2013-02, "Comprehensive Income – Reporting of Amounts Reclassified Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income." This update requires an entity to provide information about the amounts reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income by component. In addition, entities are required to present, either on the face of the statement where net income is presented or in the notes to the financial statements, significant amounts reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income by the respective line items of net income, but only if the amount reclassified is required under GAAP to be reclassified to net income in its entirety in the same reporting period. For other amounts that are not required under GAAP to be reclassified in their entirety to net income, entities are required to cross-reference to the related note to the financial statements where additional details about the effect of the reclassifications are disclosed. This ASU is effective prospectively for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2012. The Company adopted ASU 2013-02 during the first quarter of 2013. The adoption of this guidance did not impact the Company's Consolidated Financial Statements. 

Indefinite-Lived Intangible Assets Impairment

In July 2012, the FASB issued ASU 2012-02, "Testing Indefinite-Lived Intangible Assets for Impairment." This update amended the procedures for testing the impairment of indefinite-lived intangible assets by permitting an entity to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether the existence of events and circumstances indicates that it is more likely than not that the indefinite-lived intangible assets are impaired. An entity's assessment of the totality of events and circumstances and their impact on the entity's indefinite-lived intangible assets will then be used as a basis for determining whether it is necessary to perform the quantitative impairment test as described in Accounting Standard Codification ("ASC") 350-30, "Intangibles – Goodwill and Other – General Intangibles Other than Goodwill." ASU 2012-02 is effective for annual and interim impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after September 15, 2012. The Company adopted ASU 2012-02 during the first quarter of 2013.  The adoption of this guidance did not impact the Company's Consolidated Financial Statements.

2.  Store Closings
 
The calculation of accrued store closing and relocation reserves primarily includes future minimum lease payments, maintenance costs and taxes from the date of closure or relocation to the end of the remaining lease term, net of contractual or estimated sublease income.  The liability is discounted using a credit-adjusted risk-free rate of interest.  The assumptions used in the calculation of the accrued store closing and relocation reserves are evaluated each quarter.

The current portion of accrued store closing and relocation reserves is included within accrued expenses and the long-term portion is included within long-term deferred revenue and other liabilities on the unaudited Consolidated Balance Sheets. The related expense is recorded within selling, general and administrative expenses on the unaudited Consolidated Statements of Income.

3.  Earnings Per Common Share
 
Basic earnings per common share is computed based on the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period.  Diluted earnings per common share is computed based on the weighted average number of shares of common stock, plus the effect of dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period, using the treasury stock method.  Dilutive potential common shares include outstanding stock options, restricted stock and warrants.
 
The computations for basic and diluted earnings per common share are as follows (in thousands, except per share data):

4.  Fair Value Measurements
 
Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date (an exit price).  ASC 820, "Fair Value Measurement and Disclosures", outlines a valuation framework and creates a fair value hierarchy in order to increase the consistency and comparability of fair value measurements and the related disclosures, and prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value as follows:
 
Level 1:
Observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets;
 
Level 2:
Inputs, other than quoted prices in active markets, that are observable either directly or indirectly; and
 
Level 3:
Unobservable inputs in which there is little or no market data, which require the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions.

Consists of investments in various mutual funds made by eligible individuals as part of the Company's deferred compensation plan.

The fair value of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable, revolving credit borrowings and certain other liabilities approximated book value due to the short-term nature of these instruments at both November 2, 2013 and February 2, 2013.
 
The Company uses quoted prices in active markets to determine the fair value of the aforementioned assets determined to be Level 1 instruments.  The Company's policy for recognition of transfers between levels of the fair value hierarchy is to recognize any transfer at the end of the fiscal quarter in which the determination to transfer was made. There were no transfers between Levels 1 and 2 during the 39 weeks ended November 2, 2013.  The Company did not hold any Level 3 financial assets or liabilities as of November 2, 2013 and February 2, 2013.

Fiscal 2012 activity reflected the Company's impairment of its available-for-sale investment in JJB Sports Plc ("JJB Sports"). Due to the use of discounted expected future cash flows to derive the fair value of the investment, the Company reclassified the investment as a Level 3 investment during the fiscal quarter ended July 28, 2012. Realized losses are included within impairment of available-for-sale investments on the unaudited Consolidated Statement of Income.

5. Income Taxes
 
During the first quarter of 2013, the Company determined that it would recover $4.3 million of its investment in JJB Sports, which it had previously fully impaired. There is no related tax expense for this recovery as the Company reversed a portion of the deferred tax valuation allowance it had previously recorded for net capital loss carryforwards it did not expect to realize at the time its investment in JJB Sports was fully impaired.

6. Related Party Transaction

On July 17, 2013, the Company entered into a purchase agreement (the "Purchase Agreement") with SP Aviation, LLC, an entity 50% owned by our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Company sold a Gulfstream G200 corporate aircraft to SP Aviation, LLC for $11.0 million, paid in cash, representing the Company's carrying

value of the asset at the time of sale. The transaction was approved pursuant to the Company's Related Party Transaction Policy.

7. Subsequent Event
 
On November 14, 2013, our Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend in the amount of $0.125 per share of common stock and Class B common stock payable on December 27, 2013 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on December 6, 2013.

OVERVIEW

Dick's Sporting Goods, Inc. (together with its subsidiaries, the "Company") is an authentic full-line sports and fitness specialty omni-channel retailer offering a broad assortment of high quality, competitively-priced brand name sporting goods equipment, apparel and footwear in a specialty store environment. When used in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, unless the context otherwise requires or unless otherwise specified, any reference to "year" is to our fiscal year and the terms "we", "us", "the Company" and "our" refer to Dick's Sporting Goods, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. 


12

Table of Contents                                     

As of November 2, 2013, we operated 552 Dick's Sporting Goods stores in 45 states and 82 Golf Galaxy stores in 30 states, with approximately 31.4 million square feet on a consolidated basis, the majority of which are located throughout the eastern half of the United States. 
 
Due to the seasonal nature of our business, interim results are not necessarily indicative of results for any period within, or the entire, fiscal year.  Our revenue and earnings are typically greater during our fiscal fourth quarter, which includes the majority of the holiday selling season.
 
The primary factors that historically have influenced the Company's profitability and success have been the growth in its number of stores and selling square footage, positive same store sales and its strong gross profit margins.  In the last five years, the Company has grown from 398 Dick's Sporting Goods stores as of November 1, 2008 to 552 Dick's Sporting Goods stores as of November 2, 2013.  The Company continues to expand its presence through the opening of new stores and believes it has the potential to reach approximately 1,100 Dick's Sporting Goods locations, including smaller-market locations across the United States.
 
In order to monitor the Company's success, the Company's senior management monitors certain key performance indicators, including:

Consolidated same store sales – Same store sales provide a measure of sales growth for stores open at least one year over the comparable prior year period, as well as the corresponding eCommerce sales. A store is included in the same store sales calculation in the same fiscal period that it commences its 14th full month of operations.  Stores that were closed or relocated during the applicable period have been excluded from same store sales.  Each relocated store is returned to the same store base in the fiscal period that it commences its 14th full month of operations at that new location. Our management considers same store sales to be an important indicator of our current performance. Same store sales results are important to leverage our costs, including occupancy costs, store payroll and other store expenses. Same store sales also have a direct impact on our total net sales, cash and working capital. See further discussion of the Company's same store sales in the "Results of Operations and Other Selected Data" section herein.

Operating cash flow – Cash flow generation supports the general operating needs of the Company and funds capital expenditures related to its store network, distribution and administrative facilities, costs associated with continued improvement of information technology tools, costs associated with potential strategic acquisitions or investments that may arise from time to time and stockholder return initiatives, including cash dividends and share repurchases. We typically generate significant positive operating cash flows in our fiscal fourth quarter in connection with the holiday selling season and proportionately higher net income levels.  See further discussion of the Company's cash flows in the "Liquidity and Capital Resources and Changes in Financial Condition" section herein.
 
Quality of merchandise offerings – To monitor and maintain acceptance of its merchandise offerings, the Company monitors sell-throughs, inventory turns, gross margins and markdown rates on a department and style level.  This analysis helps the Company manage inventory levels to reduce cash flow requirements and deliver optimal gross margins by improving merchandise flow and establishing appropriate price points to minimize markdowns.

Store productivity – To assess store-level performance, the Company monitors various indicators, including new store productivity, sales per square foot, store operating contribution margin and store cash flow.  New store productivity compares the sales increase for all stores not included in the same store sales calculation with the increase in square footage.
 
CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
As discussed in Item 7. "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" of the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 2, 2013, the Company considers its policies on inventory valuation, vendor allowances, goodwill and intangible assets, impairment of long-lived assets and closed store reserves, self-insurance reserves, stock-based compensation and uncertain tax positions to be the most critical in understanding the judgments that are involved in preparing its consolidated financial statements.  There have been no changes in the Company's critical accounting policies during the period ended November 2, 2013.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS AND OTHER SELECTED DATA
 
Executive Summary
 
Net income for the current quarter was $50.0 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $50.1 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, for the 13 weeks ended October 27, 2012.

Net sales increased 7% to $1.4 billion in the current quarter due primarily to the growth of our store network and a 0.3% increase in consolidated same store sales. Due to the 53rd week in fiscal 2012, there is a one-week shift in fiscal 2013 results as compared to fiscal 2012. The seasonal timing change resulting from this shift unfavorably impacted net sales comparisons to the same period in the prior year by approximately $36 million. Consolidated same store sales, adjusted for the shifted retail calendar, increased 3.3% in the current quarter. eCommerce sales penetration in the third quarter of 2013 was 6.5% of total sales.

Gross profit decreased 61 basis points to 30.34% as a percentage of net sales for the 13 weeks ended November 2, 2013 as compared to the 13 weeks ended October 27, 2012, due primarily to increased occupancy and shipping costs.

In the third quarter of 2013, the Company:

Declared and paid a quarterly cash dividend of $0.125 per common share and Class B common share.
 
Repurchased approximately 0.5 million shares of common stock for $25.0 million.
 
We ended the third quarter with $116.4 million of borrowings under our current senior secured credit agreement.

Revenue from retail sales is recognized at the point of sale, net of sales tax.  Revenue from eCommerce sales is recognized upon shipment of merchandise. Service-related revenue is recognized as the services are performed.  A provision for anticipated merchandise returns is provided through a reduction of sales and cost of goods sold in the period that the related sales are recorded.  Revenue from gift cards and returned merchandise credits (collectively the "cards") are deferred and recognized upon the redemption of the cards.  These cards have no expiration date.  Income from unredeemed cards is recognized on the unaudited Consolidated Statements of Income in selling, general and administrative expenses at the point at which redemption becomes remote.  The Company performs an evaluation of the aging of the unredeemed cards, based on the elapsed time from the date of original issuance, to determine when redemption is remote.

13 Weeks Ended November 2, 2013 Compared to the 13 Weeks Ended October 27, 2012
 
Net Income
 
The Company reported net income of $50.0 million for the current quarter, or $0.40 per diluted share, compared to net income of $50.1 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, for the 13 weeks ended October 27, 2012.  

Net Sales

Net sales for the current quarter increased 7% to $1.4 billion for the 13 weeks ended November 2, 2013 compared to the 13 weeks ended October 27, 2012, due primarily to the growth of our store network and a 0.3% increase in consolidated same store sales.  The 0.3% consolidated same store sales increase consisted of a 0.6% increase at Dick's Sporting Goods and a 4.7% decrease at Golf Galaxy. eCommerce sales penetration was 6.5% of total sales during the current quarter compared to 4.4% of total sales during the 13 weeks ended October 27, 2012. Due to the 53rd week in fiscal 2012, there is a one-week shift in fiscal 2013 results as compared to fiscal 2012. In the current quarter, the seasonal timing change resulting from this shift unfavorably impacted net sales comparisons to the same period in the prior year by approximately $36 million. Consolidated same store sales, adjusted for the shifted retail calendar, increased 3.3%, consisting of a 3.4% increase at Dick's Sporting Goods and a 2.2% increase at Golf Galaxy.

The increase in consolidated same store sales, as adjusted for the shifted retail calendar, was primarily driven by increases in athletic footwear and apparel, and team sports, partially offset by declines in the fitness and outdoor apparel categories. The same store sales increase on a shifted basis at Dick's Sporting Goods was attributable to an increase of 1.5% in sales per transaction and a 1.9% increase in transactions. This 1.9% increase in transactions reflects the Company’s efforts to increase traffic, including additional advertising, increased store payroll, more merchandise offerings at opening price points and investments in growth categories. Every 1% change in consolidated same store sales would impact earnings before income taxes for the current quarter by approximately $4 million.

Income from Operations
 
Income from operations decreased to $79.1 million for the current quarter from $82.2 million for the 13 weeks ended October 27, 2012
 
Gross profit increased 5% to $424.9 million for the current quarter from $406.1 million for the 13 weeks ended October 27, 2012, but decreased as a percentage of net sales by 61 basis points compared to the same period last year. Occupancy costs and shipping expenses increased as a percentage of net sales by 47 basis points in the current quarter.  Occupancy costs increased at a higher rate than the 0.3% increase in consolidated same store sales during the current quarter.  Shipping expenses as a percentage of sales increased due to the growth in our eCommerce sales relative to the growth in sales at our brick and mortar stores. Merchandise margins decreased 11 basis points, reflecting our efforts to offer more products at opening price points and

16

Table of Contents                                     

respond to isolated competitor pricing strategies. Every 10 basis point change in merchandise margin would impact earnings before income taxes for the current quarter by approximately $1.4 million.
 
Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 6% to $333.7 million for the current quarter from $314.6 million for the 13 weeks ended October 27, 2012, but decreased as a percentage of net sales by 15 basis points. Selling, general and administrative expenses were impacted by lower incentive compensation during the 13 weeks ended November 2, 2013, partially offset by an increase in administrative payroll costs to support the Company's planned growth initiatives.
 
Pre-opening expenses increased to $12.1 million for the current quarter from $9.3 million for the 13 weeks ended October 27, 2012. Pre-opening expenses in any period fluctuate depending on the timing and number of store openings and relocations. During the current quarter, the Company opened 25 new Dick's Sporting Goods stores, one new Golf Galaxy store and two new Field & Stream stores, a specialized outdoor concept. Additionally, the Company relocated one Dick's Sporting Goods store and repositioned one Golf Galaxy store during the current quarter. The Company opened 21 new Dick's Sporting Goods stores and relocated three Dick's Sporting Goods stores in last year's third quarter.

Income Taxes
 
The Company's effective tax rate was 38.4% for the 13 weeks ended November 2, 2013 as compared to 39.2% for the same period last year. 

39 Weeks Ended November 2, 2013 Compared to the 39 Weeks Ended October 27, 2012

Net Income

The Company reported net income of $199.0 million for the 39 weeks ended November 2, 2013, or $1.58 per diluted share, compared to net income of $161.0 million, or $1.28 per diluted share, for the 39 weeks ended October 27, 2012. Net income for the 39 weeks ended November 2, 2013 includes $4.3 million, net of tax, or $0.03 per diluted share, related to an estimated partial recovery from its previously impaired investment in JJB Sports recorded during the first quarter of 2013 and a charge of $4.7 million, net of tax, or $0.04 per diluted share, related to a non-cash impairment to reduce the carrying value of a corporate aircraft held for sale to its fair market value recorded during the second quarter of 2013. Net income for the 39 weeks ended October 27, 2012 included a charge of $27.6 million, net of tax, or $0.22 per diluted share, related to the Company's impairment of its investment in JJB Sports recorded during the second quarter of 2012.

Net Sales

Net sales for the period increased 6% to $4.3 billion, due primarily to the growth of our store network. Consolidated same store sales remained flat for the period, consisting of a 0.5% increase at Dick's Sporting Goods and a 6.7% decrease at Golf Galaxy. eCommerce sales penetration was 6.0% of total sales during the current period compared to 4.0% of total sales during the 39 weeks ended October 27, 2012. Due to the 53rd week in fiscal 2012, there is a one-week shift in fiscal 2013 results as compared to fiscal 2012. The seasonal timing change resulting from this shift favorably impacted net sales comparisons to the same period in the prior year by approximately $14 million. Consolidated same store sales, adjusted for the shifted retail calendar, decreased 0.4%, consisting of a 0.1% increase at Dick's Sporting Goods and a 6.2% decrease at Golf Galaxy.

The decrease in consolidated same store sales, as adjusted for the shifted retail calendar, was primarily driven by declines in our golf, fitness and outdoor equipment businesses. The same store sales increase on a shifted basis at Dick's Sporting Goods is attributable to an increase of approximately 1.8% in sales per transaction offset by a decrease in transactions of approximately 1.7%. Every 1% change in consolidated same store sales would impact earnings before income taxes for the current period by approximately $13 million.

Income from Operations

Income from operations increased to $313.8 million for the current period from $312.6 million for the 39 weeks ended October 27, 2012.

Gross profit increased approximately 5% to $1.3 billion for the current period from $1.2 billion for the 39 weeks ended October 27, 2012, but decreased as a percentage of net sales by 12 basis points compared to the same period last year. Occupancy costs and shipping expenses increased as a percentage of net sales by 50 basis points in the current period.  Occupancy costs increased, while consolidated same store sales were flat during the 39 weeks ended November 2, 2013.  Shipping expenses as a percentage of sales increased due to the growth in our eCommerce sales relative to the growth in sales at our brick and mortar

17

Table of Contents                                     

stores. The decrease in our gross profit as a percentage of net sales was partially offset by merchandise margin expansion of 36 basis points. Every 10 basis point change in merchandise margin would impact earnings before income taxes for the current period by approximately $4.2 million.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased approximately 7% to $983.4 million for the current period from $921.6 million for the 39 weeks ended October 27, 2012, and increased as a percentage of net sales by 19 basis points primarily due to increased payroll costs for planned growth initiatives and a $7.9 million non-cash impairment charge to reduce the carrying value of a Gulfstream G450 corporate aircraft held for sale to its fair market value. This corporate aircraft is not the aircraft that was sold to a related party as described in Note 6 to the unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was partially offset by lower incentive compensation during the 39 weeks ended November 2, 2013 and a contribution to the Dick's Sporting Goods Foundation during the 39 weeks ended October 27, 2012.

Pre-opening expenses increased to $18.7 million for the current period from $14.3 million for the 39 weeks ended October 27, 2012. Pre-opening expenses in any period fluctuate depending on the timing and number of store openings and relocations. During the current period, the Company opened 34 new Dick's Sporting Goods stores, one new Golf Galaxy store and two new Field & Stream stores, a specialized outdoor concept. Additionally, the Company relocated one Dick's Sporting Goods store and repositioned one Golf Galaxy store in the current period. During last year's period, the Company opened 31 new Dick's Sporting Goods stores and relocated four Dick's Sporting Goods stores.

Impairment of Available-for-Sale Investments

Impairment of available-for-sale investments of $32.4 million in the 39 weeks ended October 27, 2012 resulted from the full impairment of the Company's investment in JJB Sports.

Interest Expense

Interest expense was $2.1 million for the current period and $5.3 million for the 39 weeks ended October 27, 2012. Interest expense for the 39 weeks ended October 27, 2012 included $2.9 million related to rent payments under the Company's financing lease for its corporate headquarters building and the decrease in interest expense year over year reflects the Company's purchase of its corporate headquarters building on May 7, 2012.

Other Income

Other income was $10.7 million for the current period and $2.9 million for the 39 weeks ended October 27, 2012. The Company recognizes interest income to reflect changes in the investment value of assets held in its deferred compensation plans with a corresponding charge to selling, general and administrative costs for the same amount. The Company recognized interest income totaling $4.7 million in the 39 weeks ended November 2, 2013 compared to $1.7 million for the 39 weeks ended October 27, 2012 due to an overall improvement in the equity markets, which impacted the deferred compensation plan investment values. During the first quarter of 2013, the Company recorded $4.3 million related to the estimated partial recovery of the Company's investment in JJB Sports, which it had previously fully impaired.  
 
Income Taxes

The Company's effective tax rate was 38.3% for the 39 weeks ended November 2, 2013 as compared to 42.1% for the same period last year. During the 39 weeks ended October 27, 2012, the Company determined that a valuation allowance totaling $7.9 million was required for a portion of the recorded deferred tax asset related to a $32.4 million net capital loss carryforward resulting from the impairment of its investment in JJB Sports, as the Company did not believe that it was "more likely than not" that the Company would generate sufficient capital gains in future periods to recognize that portion of the expected net capital loss. During the first quarter of 2013, the Company determined that it would recover an estimated $4.3 million of its investment in JJB Sports.  There is no related tax expense, as the Company reversed a portion of the deferred tax valuation allowance it had previously recorded for net capital loss carryforwards it did not expect to realize at the time its investment in JJB Sports was fully impaired.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES AND CHANGES IN FINANCIAL CONDITION

Overview
 
The Company's liquidity and capital needs have generally been met by cash from operating activities and the Company's revolving credit facility. Cash flow from operations is seasonal in our business.  Typically, we use cash flow from operations to

18

Table of Contents                                     

increase inventory in advance of peak selling seasons, with the pre-Christmas inventory increase being the largest.  In the fourth quarter, inventory levels are reduced in connection with Christmas sales and this inventory reduction, combined with proportionately higher net income, typically produces significant positive cash flow.

Net cash used in operating activities for the 39 weeks ended November 2, 2013 was $57.7 million compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $83.3 million for the 39 weeks ended October 27, 2012.  Net cash from operating, investing and financing activities are discussed further below.
 
The Company has a $500 million revolving credit facility, including up to $100 million in the form of letters of credit, in the event further liquidity is needed.  Under the Credit Agreement governing the facility (the "Credit Agreement"), subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, the Company may request an increase of up to $250 million in borrowing availability.
 
The Credit Agreement, which matures on December 5, 2016, is secured by a first priority security interest in certain property and assets, including receivables, inventory, deposit accounts and other personal property of the Company and is guaranteed by the Company's domestic subsidiaries.
 
The interest rates per annum applicable to loans under the Credit Agreement are, at the Company's option, a base rate or an adjusted LIBOR rate plus, in each case, an applicable margin percentage.  The applicable margin percentage for base rate loans is 0.20% to 0.50% and for adjusted LIBOR rate loans is 1.20% to 1.50%, depending on the borrowing availability of the Company.
 
The Credit Agreement contains certain covenants that limit the ability of the Company to, among other things: incur or guarantee additional indebtedness; pay distributions on, redeem or repurchase capital stock or redeem or repurchase subordinated debt; make certain investments; sell assets; and consolidate, merge or transfer all or substantially all of the Company's assets.  In addition, the Credit Agreement contains a covenant that requires the Company to maintain a minimum adjusted availability of 7.5% of its borrowing base. As of November 2, 2013, the Company was in compliance with the terms of the Credit Agreement.
 
The Company ended the third quarter of 2013 with $65.6 million in cash and cash equivalents as compared to $294.5 million at the end of the third quarter of 2012. Due to seasonality and capital utilization over the last twelve months, which included investments in omni-channel growth, store remodels, share repurchases and special and quarterly dividends, the Company ended the third quarter of 2013 with $116.4 million in outstanding borrowings under the Credit Agreement. There were no outstanding borrowings under the Credit Agreement as of February 2, 2013.  As of November 2, 2013 and February 2, 2013, total remaining borrowing capacity, after subtracting letters of credit, was $370.6 million and $488.7 million, respectively.
 
Normal capital requirements consist primarily of capital expenditures related to the addition of new stores, remodeling and relocating existing stores, enhancing information technology and improving our supply chain and omni-channel infrastructure.  The Company has a capital appropriations committee that approves all capital expenditures in excess of certain amounts and groups and prioritizes all capital projects among required, discretionary and strategic categories.
 
Store and omni-channel infrastructure – The Company is making substantial capital investments in its business in fiscal 2013 compared to fiscal 2012. These investments include growing our omni-channel platform, implementing new systems, developing new retail concepts and store-related capital expenditures. Store-related capital expenditures nearly doubled from fiscal 2012, due to investments in new and relocated stores and further upgrades to some of our existing stores to improve the shopping experience for our customers. As of November 8, 2013, the Company completed its store development plan for fiscal 2013.

The Company opened 40 new Dick's Sporting Goods stores and relocated one Dick's Sporting Goods store during fiscal 2013.  The Company also opened one new Golf Galaxy store and repositioned one Golf Galaxy store in fiscal 2013, both of which were in a new, larger format.  The Company leased all of these stores.
 
The Company opened two new Field & Stream stores and one new True Runner store in 2013.  The Company leased all of these stores.

The Company fully remodeled four Dick's Sporting Goods stores in 2013.  We did not remodel any stores in 2012 as we were finalizing our new prototype store.

The Company completed 75 apparel remodels in 2013.  The apparel remodels focused on strategic growth categories and featured branded vendor shops.

19

Table of Contents                                     


The Company added 116 Nike Fieldhouse shops and 131 Under Armour shops in new and existing Dick's Sporting Goods stores in fiscal 2013, including shops added as part of our apparel remodels.  Additionally, we also worked closely with The North Face to add 81 seasonal outpost shops in conjunction with store remodels.

Shared service footwear decks were installed in all new and fully remodeled stores in 2013.

Share repurchases – On March 7, 2013, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a five-year share repurchase program of up to $1 billion of the Company's common stock.  During the 39 weeks ended November 2, 2013, the Company repurchased 2.2 million shares of its common stock for $105.6 million.
 
Dividends – During the 39 weeks ended November 2, 2013, the Company paid $49.0 million of dividends to its stockholders.  The declaration of future dividends and the establishment of the per share amount, record dates and payment dates for any such future dividends are subject to the final determination of our Board of Directors, and will be dependent upon future earnings, cash flows, financial requirements and other factors.
 
Event Subsequent to Quarter-end
 
Dividend – On November 14, 2013, the Company's Board of Directors authorized and declared a quarterly dividend in the amount of $0.125 per share on the Company's common stock and Class B common stock. The dividend is payable in cash on December 27, 2013 to stockholders of record at the close of business on December 6, 2013.
 
The Company currently believes that cash flows generated by operations and funds available under the Credit Agreement will be sufficient to satisfy our current capital requirements through fiscal 2013.  Other investment opportunities, such as potential strategic acquisitions, share repurchases, investments or store expansion rates in excess of those presently planned, may require additional funding.

The change in cash and cash equivalents is as follows (in thousands):

Operating Activities

Operating activities consist primarily of net income, adjusted for certain non-cash items and changes in operating assets and liabilities.  Adjustments to net income for non-cash items include depreciation and amortization, deferred income taxes, stock-based compensation expense, tax benefits on stock options as well as non-cash gains and losses on the disposal of the Company's assets, including impairment charges.  Changes in operating assets and liabilities primarily reflect changes in inventories, accounts payable, income taxes payable / receivable as well as other working capital changes.
 
Cash provided by operating activities decreased $141.0 million for the 39 weeks ended November 2, 2013 compared to the same period last year.  The decrease in cash provided by operating activities is due primarily to decreases in operating assets and liabilities of $219.4 million year-over-year, partially offset by a $38.0 million increase in net income and a $40.3 million increase in non-cash items. The decrease in operating assets and liabilities year-over-year is primarily due to the following:

Changes in income taxes payable / receivable decreased operating cash flows by $99.9 million compared to last year, primarily due to higher income tax payments in the current period.  Income tax payments in fiscal 2012 were favorably impacted by the timing of implementing a tax election to deduct certain repair and maintenance costs and higher deductions relating to stock option exercise activity.


20

Table of Contents                                     

Cash flows provided by changes in inventory and accounts payable decreased $75.5 million compared to last year, primarily attributable to consolidated same store sales remaining flat during the 39 weeks ended November 2, 2013 as compared to the 5.6% increase in the same period of fiscal 2012.

Changes in prepaid expenses and other assets decreased $41.4 million compared to last year, primarily due to the timing of rent payments. The shifted retail calendar resulted in the Company making its November rent payments prior to the end of its fiscal third quarter of 2013. 

Investing Activities
 
Cash used in investing activities for the 39 weeks ended November 2, 2013 increased $1.7 million to $245.9 million from the same period of fiscal 2012. The Company's gross capital expenditures were $196.9 million during the current 39 week period compared to $157.4 million during the 39 weeks ended October 27, 2012, which reflects higher payments related to the Company's planned investments in stores and omni-channel infrastructure. The remaining change in cash used was due primarily to the Company's $32.0 million investment in JJB Sports during the 39 weeks ended October 27, 2012 and $11.0 million of proceeds received from the sale of a corporate aircraft during the 39 weeks ended November 2, 2013.

Financing Activities

Cash provided by financing activities for the 39 weeks ended November 2, 2013 totaled $24.1 million, primarily reflecting borrowings under our Credit Agreement, partially offset by share repurchases.  Cash used in financing activities in last year’s period totaled $279.0 million, primarily reflecting the Company’s purchase of its corporate headquarters building and share repurchases, partially offset by proceeds and excess tax benefits from the exercise of stock options.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

The Company's off-balance sheet arrangements as of November 2, 2013 relate to operating lease obligations, future minimum guaranteed contractual payments and letters of credit. The Company has excluded these items from the unaudited Consolidated Balance Sheets in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. The Company does not believe that any of these arrangements have, or are reasonably likely to have, a material effect on our financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures, or resources.

Contractual Obligations and Other Commercial Commitments
 
In the normal course of business, we enter into various contractual obligations that may require future cash payments. For a description of our contractual obligations and other commercial commitments as of February 2, 2013, see our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 2, 2013 filed March 22, 2013. During the 39 weeks ended November 2, 2013, there were no material changes outside the ordinary course of business.

ITEM 3.  QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

There have been no material changes in the Company's market risk exposures from those reported in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 2, 2013 filed March 22, 2013.
 
ITEM 4.  CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
 
During the third quarter of fiscal 2013, there were no changes in the Company's internal controls over financial reporting that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company's internal controls over financial reporting.
 
During the quarter, the Company carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the Company's management, including the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.  Based upon that evaluation, the Company's management, including the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer, concluded that the Company's disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, November 2, 2013.
 
There are inherent limitations in the effectiveness of any control system, including the potential for human error and the circumvention or overriding of the controls and procedures.  Additionally, judgments in decision-making can be faulty and breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake.  An effective control system can provide only reasonable, not

21

Table of Contents                                     

absolute, assurance that the control objectives of the system are adequately met.  Accordingly, our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, does not expect that our control system can prevent or detect all error or fraud.  Finally, projections of any evaluation or assessment of effectiveness of a control system to future periods are subject to the risks that, over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in an entity's operating environment or deterioration in the degree of compliance with policies and procedures. 

PART II.  OTHER INFORMATION

ITEM 1.  LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
 
Dick's Sporting Goods, Inc. and its subsidiaries are involved in various proceedings that are incidental to the normal course of their businesses. As of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, the Company does not expect that any of such proceedings will have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial position or results of operations.
 
ITEM 1A.  RISK FACTORS

In addition to the other information set forth in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, careful consideration should be given to the factors discussed in Part I, Item 1A. "Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended February 2, 2013 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 22, 2013, which could materially affect our business, financial condition, financial results or future performance.  Reference is also made to Item 2. "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations – Forward-Looking Statements" of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, which is incorporated herein by reference.
 
ITEM 2.  UNREGISTERED SALES OF EQUITY SECURITIES AND USE OF PROCEEDS

On March 7, 2013, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a share repurchase program of up to $1 billion of the Company's common stock over the next five years. The Company will finance the repurchases from cash on hand, future cash flows from operations or borrowings under the Credit Agreement. Pursuant to the stock repurchase program, the Company repurchased approximately 0.5 million shares of common stock for $25.0 million during the third quarter of 2013. As of November 2, 2013, $894.4 million remained available under this program. The Company may suspend or terminate the share repurchase program at any time.

The following table sets forth repurchases of our common stock during the third quarter of 2013:

4.
The registrant's other certifying officer(s) and I are responsible for establishing and maintaining disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)) and internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f)) for the registrant and have:
(a)
Designed such disclosure controls and procedures, or caused such disclosure controls and procedures to be designed under our supervision, to ensure that material information relating to the registrant, including its consolidated subsidiaries, is made known to us by others within those entities, particularly during the period in which this report is being prepared;
(b)
Designed such internal control over financial reporting, or caused such internal control over financial reporting to be designed under our supervision, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles;

5.
The registrant's other certifying officer(s) and I have disclosed, based on our most recent evaluation of internal control over financial reporting, to the registrant's auditors and the audit committee of the registrant's board of directors (or persons performing the equivalent functions):
(a)
All significant deficiencies and material weaknesses in the design or operation of internal control over financial reporting which are reasonably likely to adversely affect the registrant's ability to record, process, summarize and report financial information; and
(b)
Any fraud, whether or not material, that involves management or other employees who have a significant role in the registrant's internal control over financial reporting.
