  • Consolidated sales rose 3.0% to $6.48 billion in the first quarter of this year, up from $6.29 billion the previous year.
  • When compared to the first quarter of the previous year, net profit rose 9.4% to $1.96 billion. Net margin was 30.3 percent as a percentage of net sales, up from 28.5 percent in the same period a year ago. A beneficial sales mix enhanced shrink results, and decreased markdowns drove the 180 basis point improvement, which was partially offset by greater freight costs.
  • Selling, general, and administrative expenses accounted for 22.3 percent of total revenue, in comparison to 22.7 percent in the first quarter of the previous year. Lower COVID-19-related costs drove the improvement, which was partially offset by greater repairs and maintenance expenses.
  • Operating income increased 42.1 percent to $519.9 million in the quarter, relative to $365.9 million in the prior year’s quarter, and operating income margin increased to 8.0 percent, up from 5.8 percent in the prior year’s quarter.
  • In the first quarter, gross income increased 51.3 percent to $374.5 million, and diluted earnings per share increased 53.8 percent to $1.60, up from $1.04 in the previous quarter.
  • DLTR spent $250 million on repurchasing 2,150,572 shares during the quarter. On May 1, DLTR’s share repurchase authorization had $2.15 billion remaining.
