Target Corporation (NYSE: TGT) today announced its first quarter 2018 financial performance2, including first quarter comparable sales growth of 3.0 percent and 3.7 percent traffic growth.  The Company reported GAAP earnings per share (EPS) from continuing operations of $1.33 in first quarter 2018, up 9.1 percent from $1.21 in first quarter 2017.  First quarter Adjusted EPS were $1.32, up 9.4 percent from $1.20 in first quarter 2017. The attached tables provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP to GAAP measures. All earnings per share figures refer to diluted EPS.

"We're very pleased that our business continued to generate strong traffic and sales growth in the first quarter, as we made significant progress in support of our long-term strategic initiatives," said Brian Cornell, chairman and chief executive officer of Target Corporation. "Our first quarter performance reflects the benefit of our unique multi-category portfolio. Strong sales growth in our home, essentials and food & beverage categories offset the impact of delayed sales in temperature-sensitive categories, which accelerated rapidly in recent weeks as weather improved across the country. Additionally, our team is delivering excellent execution and guest service every day, and momentum in our traffic has accelerated in the second quarter. As a result, we expect Target's second quarter comparable sales growth will move into the low to mid single-digit range, and the midpoint of our second quarter EPS guidance represents approximately 15 percent growth over last year."


1 Adjusted EPS, a non-GAAP financial measure, excludes the impact of certain discretely managed items. See the tables of this release for additional information about the items that have been excluded from Adjusted EPS.

2 Beginning February 4, 2018, the Company adopted the new accounting standard for revenue recognition, leases and pensions. The financial information included in this earnings release reflects the adoption of these standards, with prior periods adjusted to conform with the current period presentation. Detail on the new accounting standards and adjusted prior period financials were provided in the Company's Form 8-K filed on May 11, 2018.  

Second Quarter and Full-Year 2018 Guidance

Target expects second quarter comparable sales growth to accelerate into the low to mid single-digit range. For the second quarter, the Company expects both GAAP EPS from continuing operations and Adjusted EPS of $1.30 to $1.50, compared with GAAP EPS from continuing operations of $1.21 and Adjusted EPS of $1.22 in first quarter 2017.

For full-year 2018, Target continues to expect a low-single digit increase in comparable sales, and both GAAP EPS from continuing operations and Adjusted EPS of $5.15 to $5.45.

Second quarter and full-year 2018 GAAP EPS from continuing operations may include the impact of certain discrete items which will be excluded in calculating Adjusted EPS.  The Company is not currently aware of any such discrete items, beyond those matters reported in first quarter 2018.

Operating Results

Total revenue of $16.8 billion increased 3.4 percent from $16.2 billion last year, reflecting sales growth of 3.5 percent combined with a slight decline in other revenue. First quarter sales growth reflected comparable sales growth of 3.0 percent combined with the contribution from non-mature stores.  Comparable digital channel sales grew 28 percent and contributed 1.1 percentage points of comparable sales growth.  Operating income was $1,041 million in first quarter 2018, down 9.9 percent from $1,155 million in 2017.

First quarter operating income margin rate was 6.2 percent, compared with 7.1 percent in 2017. First quarter gross margin rate was 29.8 percent, compared with 30.0 percent in 2017, reflecting pressure from digital fulfillments costs and sales mix, partially offset by the benefit of the Company's cost saving efforts and the net impact of changes to the Company's pricing and promotions. First quarter SG&A expense rate was 21.1 percent in 2018, compared with 20.7 percent in 2017, driven by higher compensation costs, including investments in store team member hours and wage rates.

Interest Expense and Taxes from Continuing Operations

The Company's first quarter 2018 net interest expense was $121 million, down 13.4 percent from $140 million last year, reflecting debt retirement and refinancing activity conducted in 2017. First quarter 2018 effective income tax rate from continuing operations was 22.6 percent, compared with 34.5 percent last year, primarily due to the impact of recently-enacted federal tax reform legislation (the Tax Act).

Capital Deployment

In first quarter 2018 the Company made capital investments of $827 million in property and equipment, and returned $828 million to shareholders, including:

  • Dividends of $334 million, compared with $332 million in first quarter 2017, reflecting an increase in the dividend per share offset by a decline in share count.
  • Share repurchases totaling $494 million that retired 6.9 million shares of common stock at an average price of $71.24.

As of the end of the first quarter, the Company had approximately $2.8 billion of remaining capacity under its current $5 billion share repurchase program, reflecting first quarter purchases and an accelerated share repurchase transaction which will settle in the second quarter.

For the trailing twelve months through first quarter 2018, after-tax return on invested capital (ROIC) was 15.2 percent, compared with 13.8 percent for the twelve months through first quarter 2017. The year-over-year increase in first quarter 2018 reflected discrete impacts of the Tax Act combined with the benefit of a lower structural tax rate and lower working capital, partially offset by the impact of lower pretax earnings.  Excluding the discrete impacts of the Tax Act, ROIC was 13.5 percent for the trailing twelve months ended May 5, 2018.  See the tables of this release for additional information about the Company's ROIC calculation.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To provide additional transparency, we have disclosed non-GAAP adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations (Adjusted EPS). This metric excludes certain items presented below. We believe this information is useful in providing period-to-period comparisons of the results of our continuing operations. This measure is not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP). The most comparable GAAP measure is diluted earnings per share from continuing operations. Adjusted EPS should not be considered in isolation or as a substitution for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Other companies may calculate Adjusted EPS differently, limiting the usefulness of the measure for comparisons with other companies.

(b)       Represents income from income tax matters not related to current period operations.

Consolidated earnings from continuing operations before interest expense and income taxes (EBIT) and earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) are non-GAAP financial measures which we believe provide meaningful information about our operational efficiency compared to our competitors by excluding the impact of differences in tax jurisdictions and structures, debt levels, and for EBITDA, capital investment. These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, GAAP. The most comparable GAAP measure is net earnings from continuing operations. Consolidated EBIT and EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitution for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Other companies may calculate consolidated EBIT and EBITDA differently, limiting the usefulness of the measure for comparisons with other companies.

(c)       Represents the add-back to operating income driven by the hypothetical interest expense we would incur if the property under our operating leases were owned or accounted for as finance leases. Calculated using the discount rate for each lease and recorded as a component of rent expense within SG&A. Operating lease interest is added back to Operating Income in the ROIC calculation to control for differences in capital structure between us and our competitors.

(d)       Calculated using the effective tax rates for continuing operations, which were 16.3 percent and 33.4 percent for the trailing twelve months ended May 5, 2018, and April 29, 2017, respectively. For the twelve months ended May 5, 2018, and April 29, 2017, includes tax effect of $679 million and $1,608 million, respectively, related to EBIT and $13 million and $25 million, respectively, related to operating lease interest.

(e)       The effective tax rate for the trailing twelve months ended May 5, 2018, includes discrete tax benefits of $343 million related to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (Tax Act), and the impact of the new lower U.S. corporate income tax rate.

(f)        Total short-term and long-term operating lease liabilities included within Accrued and Other Current Liabilities and Noncurrent Operating Lease Liabilities on the Consolidated Statements of Financial Position.

(g)       Included in Other Assets and Liabilities on the Consolidated Statements of Financial Position.

(h)       Average based on the invested capital at the end of the current period and the invested capital at the end of the comparable prior period.

(i)        Adoption of the new lease standard reduced ROIC by approximately 0.5 percentage points for all periods presented.

Beginning with the first quarter 2018, we adopted the new accounting standards for revenue recognition, leases, and pensions. To inform investors how Adjusted EPS from prior periods are affected, the following presents Adjusted EPS reflecting the impact of these accounting standards for the last three fiscal years, calculated in the same manner as described on page 11. We provided additional information about the impact of the new accounting standards on previously reported financial information in a Form 8-K filed on May 11, 2018.
