WEST JORDAN, Utah, March 31, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sportsman's Warehouse Holdings, Inc. ("Sportsman's Warehouse" or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: SPWH) today announced financial results for the thirteen and fifty-two weeks ended January 30, 2021.

“Sportsman’s Warehouse finished fiscal 2020 with record performance for the fourth quarter and full year. I am proud of our associates who made tremendous efforts to safely serve our customers,” said Jon Barker, Sportsman’s Warehouse CEO. “Fourth quarter same store sales increased 58% compared to the same period last year due to an exceptionally strong holiday season, elevated participation in outdoor activities, and our continued market share gains in firearms. For fiscal year 2020, we grew same store sales by 48% compared to the prior year as we capitalized on historic surges in first-time firearm ownership and outdoor activity participation.”

Mr. Barker continued, “We continue to expand digitally as well as through additional brick-and-mortar stores. In 2020, we opened nine new Sportsman’s Warehouse stores and one Legacy Shooting Center, taking our total store count to 112.”

Non-GAAP Information

This press release includes the following financial measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”): adjusted income from operations, adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share and Adjusted EBITDA. We define adjusted income from operations and adjusted net income as income from operations and net income, respectively, in each case, plus expenses incurred relating to bonuses and increased wages paid to front-line and non-executive back office associates due to COVID-19, costs incurred for the recruitment and hiring of key members of management, expenses incurred relating to the acquisition of Field and Stream store locations and the pending merger with the Great Outdoors Group, LLC, a legal settlement accrual, and the costs and impairments recorded relating to the closure of one store during the first quarter of 2020, less the gain on a bargain purchase of tangible assets acquired in connection with the Field & Stream store locations acquired during fiscal year 2020 and recognized tax benefits, as applicable. We define adjusted diluted earnings per share as adjusted net income divided by diluted weighted average shares outstanding. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income plus interest expense, income tax (benefit) expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, bonuses and increased wages paid to front-line and non-executive back office associates due to COVID-19, expenses incurred relating to the acquisition of Field and Stream store locations and the pending merger with the Great Outdoors Group, LLC, pre-opening expenses, the costs and impairments recorded relating to the closure of one store during the first quarter of 2020, a legal settlement accrual costs incurred for the recruitment and hiring of key members of management, less the gain on a bargain purchase of tangible assets acquired in connection with the Field & Stream store locations acquired during fiscal year 2020. The Company has reconciled these non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures under “GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures” in this release. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures not only provide its management with comparable financial data for internal financial analysis but also provide meaningful supplemental information to investors. Specifically, these non-GAAP financial measures allow investors to better understand the performance of the Company’s business and facilitate a more meaningful comparison of its diluted earnings per share and actual results on a period-over-period basis. The Company has provided this information as a means to evaluate the results of its ongoing operations. Other companies in the Company’s industry may calculate these items differently than the Company does. Each of these measures is not a measure of performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and investors should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP.
