DICK’S Sporting Goods president and CEO Lauren Hobart said: “With our industry-leading assortment and strong execution, we capped off the year with an incredibly strong fourth quarter and holiday season. Even excluding the extra week, this was the largest sales quarter in the history of the company, and during the fourth quarter, we drove significant gross margin and EBT [earnings before tax] margin expansion. Our full-year comps increased 2.4%, driven by growth in transactions, and we continued to gain market share.” 

“We are guiding [towards] another strong year in 2024. We plan to grow both our sales and earnings through positive comps, higher merchandise margin and productivity gains. With the continued success of our new store formats and our omnichannel experience, we will accelerate our investment in our growth strategies to drive our business forward and continue gaining market share in a fragmented $140bn industry.”
