KATY, Texas, March 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Academy Sports and Outdoors, Inc. (Nasdaq: ASO) ("Academy" or the "Company") today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended January 28, 2023. Unless otherwise indicated, comparisons are to the same period in the prior fiscal year.

"For Academy, 2022 was a year that was both rewarding and challenging. The Company accomplished many of the strategic goals we set at the beginning of the year to build a strong foundation for the future, including opening nine new stores," said Ken Hicks, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "While our business faced pressures from the uncertain macro-economic environment throughout the year, our team effectively executed against our strategic plan, and as a result, we delivered solid earnings, generated and returned a significant amount of free cash flow, and created value for our stakeholders, even though we did not meet our sales expectations. Our focus in 2023 will be investing for growth by opening new stores, building a more powerful omnichannel business, strengthening our current store base, and leveraging and scaling our supply chain."

During the fourth quarter, Academy returned $105.9 million to stockholders through a combination of share repurchases and dividends.

In addition, Academy utilized cash on hand to voluntarily prepay $100 million of outstanding borrowings under its senior secured term loan.

For the full year, Academy returned $614.1 million to stakeholders, which consisted of share repurchases totaling $489.5 million, $24.6 million in dividend payments and $100 million of debt reduction. As of the end of the fiscal year, Academy has approximately $300 million remaining under its share repurchase program.

Subsequent to the end of fiscal 2022, on March 2, 2023, Academy announced that its Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend with respect to the quarter ended January 28, 2023, of $0.09 per share of common stock. This is a 20% increase from the previous dividend payment. The dividend is payable on April 13, 2023, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on March 23, 2023.

2023 Outlook

Michael Mullican, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer said, “Academy’s operational and financial transformation continues to deliver solid financial results. For the second consecutive year, the Company delivered gross margins greater than 34% and operating margin above 13%. Since the beginning of 2021, we have returned over $1.1 billion to our stakeholders through stock buybacks, dividend payments and debt reduction. In 2023, our goal is to accelerate sales and profit growth through new store openings, omnichannel expansion and increasing the productivity of existing stores, all while generating significant free cash flow."

Academy is providing the following initial guidance for fiscal 2023 (year ending February 3, 2024). This guidance takes into account various factors, both internal and external, such as the expected benefits of the Company's sales and profit growth initiatives, current consumer demand, the competitive environment as well as the potential impacts from inflation and other economic risks. It also includes the investments being made in new stores, omnichannel, supply chain and existing stores.

ACADEMY SPORTS AND OUTDOORS, INC.RECONCILIATIONS OF NON-GAAP TO GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES(Unaudited)(Dollar amounts in thousands)

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBIT

We define “Adjusted EBITDA” as net income (loss) before interest expense, net, income tax expense and depreciation, and amortization, and impairment, further adjusted to exclude equity compensation expense, (gain) loss on early retirement of debt, net, payroll taxes associated with a vesting event, as a result of a secondary offering, of certain time and performance-based equity awards, both of which occurred in May 2021 (the “2021 Vesting Event”) and other adjustments. We define “Adjusted EBIT” as net income (loss) before interest expense, net, and income tax expense, further adjusted to exclude equity compensation expense, (gain) loss on early retirement of debt, net, payroll taxes associated with the 2021 Vesting Event and other adjustments. We describe these adjustments reconciling net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBIT in the following table.

(c)  Other adjustments include (representing deductions or additions to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBIT) amounts that management believes are not representative of our operating performance, including installation costs for energy savings associated with our profitability initiatives and other costs associated with strategic cost savings and business optimization initiatives.
(d)  Effective January 28, 2023, we no longer exclude pre-opening expenses from our computation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBIT.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Common Share

We define “Adjusted Net Income (Loss)” as net income (loss), plus equity compensation expense, (gain) loss on early retirement of debt, net, payroll taxes associated with the 2021 Vesting Event and other adjustments, less the tax effect of these adjustments. We define “Adjusted Earnings per Common Share, Basic” as Adjusted Net Income divided by the basic weighted average common shares outstanding during the period and “Adjusted Earnings per Common Share, Diluted” as Adjusted Net Income divided by the diluted weighted average common shares outstanding during the period. We describe these adjustments reconciling net income (loss) to Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted Net Income (Loss), and Adjusted Earnings Per Share in the following table.
