Tightens Fiscal 2023 Sales Outlook Range to $30.0 Billion to $30.5 Billion
Revises Fiscal 2023 EPS Outlook: $5.73 to $6.13 on Macro-Driven Higher-Than-Anticipated Shrink and Unfavorable Mix Shift Towards Consumables, Including $0.12 per Share Legal Reserve
Strong Free Cash Flow Generation of $402 million (an increase of 41% from last year)

CHESAPEAKE, Va.--May 25, 2023--Dollar Tree, Inc. (NASDAQ: DLTR) today reported financial results for its first quarter ended April 29, 2023.

“Our initiatives to drive customer traffic and increase store productivity are having the desired impact. The Dollar Tree segment delivered a 3.4% comp, successfully cycling the 11.2% comp from the prior year’s quarter. Family Dollar continued its sales momentum with a 6.6% same-store sales increase. Importantly, both segments experienced a mid-single digit percent step-up in comp traffic. We are clearly gaining market share across the entire enterprise,” stated Rick Dreiling, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

“While we are seeing early results from our initiatives, we are not immune to the external pressures affecting all of retail, notably, the margin impact of elevated shrink and the product mix shift to consumables.”

“While we are maintaining our full-year 2023 sales outlook, we are adjusting our EPS outlook as we expect the elevated shrink and unfavorable sales mix to persist through the balance of the year. We still expect earnings to be more back-end loaded this year as the benefits of lower ocean freight rates flow through. We are eager to share more details on the current operating environment and our longer-term strategic growth plans at our upcoming investor conference on June 21st.”

First Quarter Results

Unless noted, all comparisons are to the prior year’s first quarter, ended April 30, 2022.

Consolidated net sales increased 6.1% to $7.32 billion. Enterprise same-store sales increased 4.8%. Dollar Tree same-store sales increased 3.4%, driven by a 5.5% increase in traffic, partially offset by a 2.1% decline in average ticket. Family Dollar’s 6.6% same-store sales increase was comprised of a 4.3% increase in traffic along with a 2.2% increase in average ticket.

Gross profit decreased 4.7% to $2.23 billion and gross margin declined 340 basis points to 30.5%. The prior year’s quarter included an outsized margin benefit from the initial transition to the $1.25 price point at Dollar Tree. The gross margin decline was driven by lower initial mark-on, an unfavorable sales mix and shrink, partially offset by lower freight costs.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were 24.8% of total revenue, compared to 23.3%. The current year’s quarter included a $30.0 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, charge to the Company’s legal reserve for previously detailed matters in a Family Dollar distribution facility in Arkansas. Excluding this charge, SG&A expenses were 24.4% of total revenue. The increase was primarily due to higher costs for store and field payroll, higher expenditures related to repairs and maintenance to improve store standards, and professional fees, partially offset by comparable store net sales leverage.

Operating income was $419.7 million and operating margin was 5.7%. Adjusted operating income was $449.7 million and adjusted operating margin was 6.1%.

The Company’s effective tax rate was 24.1%, compared to 23.1% last year.

Net income was $299.0 million and diluted EPS was $1.35. Adjusted diluted EPS was $1.47.

The Company repurchased 1,025,000 shares for $151.1 million.

Updated Fiscal 2023 Outlook

“We are rapidly executing on a multi-faceted plan to fundamentally transform and improve the operating performance of Dollar Tree and Family Dollar for the long-term. I am encouraged by our early progress and traction on initiatives to improve our shoppers’ experience and drive store productivity. We are very confident in our plan and feel we are in control of our Company’s destiny,” Dreiling added.

“We believe both Dollar Tree and Family Dollar have a clear path to accelerated sales growth and margin expansion over the next three to five years. Our distinctive and proven initiatives are being led by a world-class retail management team and are being executed by more than 200,000 associates that are eager to succeed. At our investor conference in June, you will hear more details about our Company’s exciting growth plans and the transformational changes we are making.”

Fiscal 2023 Outlook

Consolidated net sales for full-year fiscal 2023 are now expected to range from $30.0 billion to $30.5 billion. The Company expects to deliver a low- to mid-single-digit comparable store sales increase for the year, comprised of a low- to mid-single-digit increase in the Dollar Tree segment and a mid-single-digit increase in the Family Dollar segment. Selling square footage is expected to grow by 3.0% to 3.5% for the year, with new store growth back-end weighted. Diluted EPS is expected to range from $5.73 to $6.13, including an expected benefit of $0.29 contribution from the 53rd week and the $0.12 charge for the legal reserve.

Second Quarter 2023 Outlook

The Company expects consolidated net sales for the second quarter will range from $7.0 billion to $7.2 billion, based on a mid-single-digit increase in same-store sales for the enterprise, and for the Dollar Tree and Family Dollar segments. Diluted EPS for the quarter is estimated to be in the range of $0.79 to $0.89.

While share repurchases are not included in the outlook, the Company had $1.70 billion remaining under its share repurchase authorization as of April 29, 2023.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(In millions, except per share data)
From time-to-time, the Company discloses certain financial measures not derived in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). These non-GAAP financial measures should not be used as a substitute for GAAP financial measures, or considered in isolation, for the purposes of analyzing operating performance, financial position or cash flows. However, the Company believes providing additional information in the form of non-GAAP measures that exclude the unusual expenses described below is beneficial to the users of its financial statements in evaluating the Company's current operating results in relation to past periods. In addition, the Company's debt covenants exclude the impact of certain unusual expenses. The Company has included a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP measures in the following tables.
In the first quarter of 2023, the Company recorded a $30.0 million charge to its legal reserve for DC 202-related matters.
