The information contained in this item is being furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission. Such information shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section. The information shall not be deemed incorporated by reference into any registration statement or other document filed pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.

A WARNING ABOUT FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS: The transcript being furnished as Exhibit 99.1 contains “forward-looking statements” as that term is used in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements can be identified by the fact that they address future events, developments or results and do not relate strictly to historical facts. Any statements contained in the transcript that are not statements of historical fact may be deemed to be forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements preceded by, followed by or including words such as “believe”, “anticipate”, “expect”, “intend”, “plan”, “view”, “target” or “estimate”, “may”, “will”, “should”, “predict”, “possible”, “potential”, “continue”, “strategy”, and similar expressions. For example, our forward-looking statements include statements regarding the continuing uncertainties and potential impact of the COVID-19 coronavirus on our business and financial results for the second quarter 2020 and fiscal year 2020, including, without limitation, our expectations regarding increased labor and other costs, new store openings, capital expenditures, gross margin, depreciation and amortization, net interest expense, tax rate and weighted average diluted shares; our plans and expectations concerning Family Dollar H2 renovations; our expectations regarding the impact of tariffs; our sales mix and trends; replenishment of inventory; freight and distribution costs; our expectations regarding the continued volatility of the retail environment and factors that may affect such environment; the impact of our new Crafter Square program and potential closeout sales; and our other plans, objectives, expectations (financial and otherwise) and intentions. These statements are subject to risks and uncertainties. For a discussion of the risks, uncertainties and assumptions that could affect our future events, developments or results, you should carefully review the “Risk Factors,” “Business” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” sections in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed March 20, 2020, our Form 10-Q for the most recently ended fiscal quarter and other filings we make from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We are not obligated to release publicly any revisions to any forward-looking statements contained in the transcript to reflect events or circumstances occurring after the date of this report and you should not expect us to do so.
