NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
 
Note 1.         Basis of Presentation
 
The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements of Dillard’s, Inc. (the “Company”) have been prepared in accordance with the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).  Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for complete financial statements.  In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included.  Operating results for the three months ended May 4, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending February 1, 2020 due to, among other factors, the seasonal nature of the business.
 
These unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 2, 2019 filed with the SEC on March 29, 2019.

Restricted Cash - Restricted cash consists of cash proceeds from the sale of property held in escrow for the acquisition of replacement property under like-kind exchange agreements. The escrow accounts are administered by an intermediary. Pursuant to the like-kind exchange agreements, the cash remains restricted for a maximum of 180 days from the date of the property sale pending the acquisition of replacement property.

The following table provides a reconciliation of cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash reported within the condensed consolidated balance sheets that sum to the total of the same such amounts shown in the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows.

Note 2.  Accounting Standards
 
Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

Leases: Amendments to the FASB Accounting Standards Codification
In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842): Amendments to the FASB Accounting Standards Codification, to increase transparency and comparability among organizations by recognizing lease assets and liabilities on the balance sheet and disclosing key information about leasing arrangements. Under these amendments, lessees are required to recognize lease assets and lease liabilities for leases classified as operating leases under Accounting Standards Codification 840, Leases ("ASC 840"). Subsequent to the issuance of ASU No. 2016-02, the FASB issued additional amendments related to ASU No. 2016-02: (1) ASU No. 2018-01, Leases (Topic 842): Land Easement Practical Expedient for Transition to Topic 842; (2) ASU No. 2018-10: Codification Improvements to Topic 842, Leases; and (3) ASU No. 2018-11, Leases (Topic 842): Targeted Improvements. We refer to this ASU and related amendments as the "new standard" or "ASU No. 2016-02." We adopted the requirements of the new standard as of February 3, 2019. See Note 13, Leases.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

Defined Benefit Plans: Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Defined Benefit Plans
In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-14, Compensation - Retirement Benefits - Defined Benefit Plans - General (Subtopic 715-20): Disclosure Framework - Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Defined Benefit Plans, to improve the effectiveness of disclosures in the notes to financial statements for employers that sponsor defined benefit pension plans. ASU No. 2018-14 is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years ending after December 15, 2020, and early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact of this update on its notes to financial statements.
Note 3. Significant Accounting Policies Updates
Operating Leases—The Company leases retail stores, office space and equipment under operating leases. The Company records right-of-use assets and operating lease liabilities for operating leases with lease terms exceeding twelve months. The right-of-use assets are adjusted for lease incentives, including construction allowances, and prepaid rent. The Company recognizes minimum rent expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term. Many leases contain contingent rent provisions. Contingent rent is expensed as incurred.
The lease term used for lease evaluation includes renewal option periods only in instances in which the exercise of the option period is reasonably certain.
Note 4.  Business Segments
 
The Company operates in two reportable segments:  the operation of retail department stores (“retail operations”) and a general contracting construction company (“construction”).
 
For the Company’s retail operations, the Company determined its operating segments on a store by store basis.  Each store’s operating performance has been aggregated into one reportable segment.  The Company’s operating segments are aggregated for financial reporting purposes because they are similar in each of the following areas: economic characteristics, class of consumer, nature of products and distribution methods. Revenues from external customers are derived from merchandise sales, and the Company does not rely on any major customers as a source of revenue. Across all stores, the Company operates one store format under the Dillard’s name where each store offers the same general mix of merchandise with similar categories and similar customers.  The Company believes that disaggregating its operating segments would not provide meaningful additional information.
The following table summarizes the percentage of net sales by segment and major product line:

Intersegment construction revenues of $8.4 million and $5.4 million for the three months ended May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018, respectively, were eliminated during consolidation and have been excluded from net sales for the respective periods.

The retail operations segment gives rise to contract liabilities through the loyalty program and through the issuances of gift cards. The loyalty program liability and a portion of the gift card liability is included in trade accounts payable and accrued expenses, and a portion of the gift card liability is included in other liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheets. Our retail operations segment contract liabilities are as follows:

Note 6.  Commitments and Contingencies
 
Various legal proceedings, in the form of lawsuits and claims, which occur in the normal course of business, are pending against the Company and its subsidiaries.  In the opinion of management, disposition of these matters, individually or in the aggregate, is not expected to have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial position, cash flows or results of operations.
 
At May 4, 2019, letters of credit totaling $21.8 million were issued under the Company’s revolving credit facility.

Note 7.  Benefit Plans
 
The Company has an unfunded, nonqualified defined benefit plan (“Pension Plan”) for its officers.  The Pension Plan is noncontributory and provides benefits based on years of service and compensation during employment.  The Company determines pension expense using an actuarial cost method to estimate the total benefits ultimately payable to officers and allocates this cost to service periods.  The actuarial assumptions used to calculate pension costs are reviewed annually.  The Company contributed $1.4 million to the Pension Plan during the three months ended May 4, 2019 and expects to make additional contributions to the Pension Plan of approximately $4.0 million during the remainder of fiscal 2019.
 
The components of net periodic benefit costs are as follows (in thousands):

Note 8.  Revolving Credit Agreement
 
At May 4, 2019, the Company maintained an unsecured revolving credit facility that provides a borrowing capacity of $800 million with a $200 million expansion option and matures on August 9, 2022 (“credit agreement”). The credit agreement is available to the Company for general corporate purposes including, among other uses, working capital financing, the issuance of letters of credit, capital expenditures and, subject to certain restrictions, the repayment of existing indebtedness and share repurchases. The Company pays a variable rate of interest on borrowings under the credit agreement and a commitment fee to the participating banks based on the Company's debt rating. The rate of interest on borrowings is LIBOR plus 1.375%, and the commitment fee for unused borrowings is 0.20% per annum.  

At May 4, 2019, no borrowings were outstanding, and letters of credit totaling $21.8 million were issued under the credit agreement leaving unutilized availability under the facility of $778.2 million.

To be in compliance with the financial covenants of the credit agreement, the Company's total leverage ratio cannot exceed 3.5 to 1.0, and the coverage ratio cannot be less than 2.5 to 1.0, as defined in the credit agreement. At May 4, 2019, the Company was in compliance with all financial covenants related to the credit agreement.

Note 9.  Stock Repurchase Program
 
The Company's Board of Directors has authorized the Company to repurchase the Company’s Class A Common Stock pursuant to open-ended stock repurchase plans. These authorizations permit the Company to repurchase its Class A Common Stock in the open market, pursuant to preset trading plans meeting the requirements of Rule 10b5-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or through privately negotiated transactions.  The authorizations have no expiration date.

The following is a summary of share repurchase activity for the periods indicated (in thousands, except per share data):

All repurchases of the Company’s Class A Common Stock above were made at the market price at the trade date.  Accordingly, all amounts paid to reacquire these shares were allocated to treasury stock. In March 2018, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a $500 million stock repurchase plan (the "March 2018 Plan"). As of May 4, 2019, $389.5 million of authorization remained under the March 2018 Plan.

Note 10.  Income Taxes

During the three months ended May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018, income tax expense differed from what would be computed using the statutory federal tax rate primarily due to the effect of state and local income taxes partially offset by tax benefits recognized for federal tax credits.

Note 13. Leases

We adopted the requirements of ASU No. 2016-02 as of February 3, 2019, utilizing the optional effective date transition method allowing the application of the new standard at the adoption date with comparative periods presented in accordance with ASC 840, Leases. At adoption, we made the following practical expedient policy elections:
We applied the new standard using the package of practical expedients permitted under the transition guidance, which allowed us to not reassess:
Whether any expired or existing contracts are or contain leases;
Lease classification for any expired or existing leases, which allowed us to carry forward the historical lease classifications; and
Indirect costs for any existing leases.
We elected the practical expedient that allowed us to use hindsight in determining the lease term.
We elected the practical expedient related to land easements, allowing us to carry forward our accounting treatment for land easements on existing agreements.
We elected the accounting policy to not recognize a right-of-use asset and operating lease liability for leases with an initial term of twelve months or less. The Company records lease expense for short term leases on a straight-line basis over the lease term in rentals on the condensed consolidated statements of income.

Lease components (e.g. fixed rent payments) are accounted for separately from non-lease components (e.g. common area maintenance costs).

The Company leases retail stores, office space and equipment under operating leases.The majority of these operating leases were impacted by the adoption of the new standard. At adoption, we recorded right-of-use operating lease assets and operating lease liabilities totaling $57.0 million and $56.2 million, respectively. As of May 4, 2019, right-of-use operating lease assets, which are recorded in operating lease assets in the condensed consolidated balance sheets, totaled $52.8 million, and operating lease liabilities, which are recorded in current portion of operating lease liabilities and operating lease liabilities, totaled $52.0 million. The impact of the adoption of the new standard was immaterial to our condensed consolidated statements of income, condensed consolidated statements of cash flows and condensed consolidated statements of stockholders' equity.
In determining our operating lease assets and operating lease liabilities, we applied an incremental borrowing rate to the minimum lease payments within each lease agreement. ASU No. 2016-02 requires the use of the rate implicit in the lease whenever that rate is readily determinable; furthermore, if the implicit rate is not readily determinable, a lessee may use its incremental borrowing rate. The incremental borrowing rate is the rate of interest that a lessee would have to pay to borrow on a collaterlized basis over a similar term an amount equal to the lease payments in a similar economic environment. To estimate our specific incremental borrowing rates that align with applicable lease terms, we utilized a model consistent with the credit quality of our outstanding debt instruments.
Renewal options from two to 20 years exist on the majority of leased properties. The Company has sole discretion in exercising the lease renewal options. We do not recognize operating lease assets or operating lease liabilities for renewal periods unless it has been determined that we are reasonably certain of renewing the lease at inception. The depreciable life of operating lease assets and related leasehold improvements is limited by the expected lease term.
Contingent rentals on certain leases are based on a percentage of annual sales in excess of specified amounts. Other contingent rentals are based entirely on a percentage of sales. The Company's operating lease agreements do not contain any material residual value guarantees or material restrictive covenants.

Item 2.  Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
 
The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the condensed consolidated financial statements and the footnotes thereto included elsewhere in this report, as well as the financial and other information included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended February 2, 2019.
 
EXECUTIVE OVERVIEW

Despite the increase in total sales, the Company's performance in the first quarter of fiscal 2019 was disappointing as comparable store sales were essentially flat over last year's first quarter, and markdowns weighed heavily on gross margin. Gross margin from retail operations decreased 141 basis points of net sales. Selling, general and administrative expenses from retail operations decreased 23 basis points of net sales. The Company reported consolidated net income of $78.6 million ($2.99 per share) for the current year first quarter compared to consolidated net income of $80.5 million ($2.89 per share) for the prior year first quarter.

Included in net income for the quarter ended May 4, 2019 is a pretax gain on disposal of assets of $7.4 million ($5.8 million after tax or $0.22 per share). The gain on disposal of assets includes the sale of two store properties.

During the three months ended May 4, 2019, the Company purchased $17.4 million of its outstanding Class A Common Stock under its stock repurchase plan authorized by the Company's Board of Directors in March 2018 (the "March 2018 Plan"). As of May 4, 2019, authorization of $389.5 million remained under the plan.

As of May 4, 2019, the Company had working capital of $915.6 million, cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash of $148.5 million and $565.6 million of total debt outstanding, excluding finance lease liabilities and operating lease liabilities.  Cash flows provided by operating activities were $48.4 million for the three months ended May 4, 2019

The Company operated 289 Dillard's locations, including 28 clearance centers, and one internet store at May 4, 2019.

Seasonality

Our business, like many other retailers, is subject to seasonal influences, with a significant portion of sales and income typically realized during the last quarter of our fiscal year due to the holiday season.  Because of the seasonality of our business, results from any quarter are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be achieved for a full fiscal year.

Net sales from the retail operations segment increased $9.2 million during the three months ended May 4, 2019 compared to the three months ended May 5, 2018, increasing 1% in total while remaining flat in comparable stores. Sales of juniors' and children's apparel and home and furniture increased significantly over the first quarter last year. Sales of men's apparel and accessories increased moderately, while sales of ladies' apparel and ladies' accessories and lingerie remained relatively flat. Sales of shoes and cosmetics decreased moderately.
 
The number of sales transactions and the average dollars per sales transactions remained relatively flat for the three months ended May 4, 2019 compared to the three months ended May 5, 2018.

We recorded a return asset of $11.9 million and $11.7 million and an allowance for sales returns of $20.1 million and $20.0 million as of May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018, respectively.
 
During the three months ended May 4, 2019, net sales from the construction segment decreased $2.0 million or 4.3% compared to the three months ended May 5, 2018 due to a decrease in construction activity. The backlog of awarded construction contracts at May 4, 2019 totaled $345.6 million, increasing approximately 3% from February 2, 2019 and increasing approximately 13% from May 5, 2018. We expect the backlog to be earned over the next nine to twenty-four months.

Gross profit decreased by $16.8 million and 134 basis points of net sales during the three months ended May 4, 2019 compared to the three months ended May 5, 2018.

Gross profit from retail operations decreased 141 basis points of net sales during the three months ended May 4, 2019 compared to the three months ended May 5, 2018 primarily due to increased markdowns. Gross margin declined slightly in men's apparel and accessories and declined moderately in ladies' apparel and ladies' accessories and lingerie. Gross margin declined significantly in home and furniture, while remaining essentially flat in juniors' and children's apparel and cosmetics. Gross margin increased slightly in shoes.

Gross profit from the construction segment decreased 63 basis points of construction sales for the three months ended May 4, 2019 compared to the three months ended May 5, 2018.

Inventory increased 3% in total as of May 4, 2019 compared to May 5, 2018.  A 1% change in the dollar amount of markdowns would have impacted net income by approximately $2 million for the three months ended May 4, 2019.

During the three months ended May 4, 2019, the Company recorded a gain of $7.4 million primarily from the sale of two store locations in Boardman, Ohio and Boynton Beach, Florida.

Income Taxes
 
The Company’s estimated federal and state effective income tax rate was approximately 22.0% for the three months ended May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018. During the three months ended May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018, income tax expense differed from what would be computed using the statutory federal tax rate primarily due to the effect of state and local income taxes partially offset by tax benefits recognized for federal tax credits.

The Company expects the fiscal 2019 federal and state effective income tax rate to approximate 21% to 22%. This rate may change if results of operations for fiscal 2019 differ from management’s current expectations. Changes in the Company’s assumptions and judgments can materially affect amounts recognized in the condensed consolidated balance sheets and statements of income.

Net cash flows from operations decreased $7.0 million during the three months ended May 4, 2019 compared to the three months ended May 5, 2018.  This decrease was primarily attributable to the net change in accounts payable and merchandise inventories.
 
Wells Fargo owns and manages the Dillard's private label cards under the Wells Fargo Alliance. Under the Wells Fargo Alliance, Wells Fargo establishes and owns private label card accounts for our customers, retains the benefits and risks associated with the ownership of the accounts, provides key customer service functions, including new account openings, transaction authorization, billing adjustments and customer inquiries, receives the finance charge income and incurs the bad debts associated with those accounts.

Pursuant to the Wells Fargo Alliance, we receive on-going cash compensation from Wells Fargo based upon the portfolio's earnings. The compensation received from the portfolio is determined monthly and has no recourse provisions. The amount the Company receives is dependent on the level of sales on Wells Fargo accounts, the level of balances carried on Wells Fargo accounts by Wells Fargo customers, payment rates on Wells Fargo accounts, finance charge rates and other fees on Wells Fargo accounts, the level of credit losses for the Wells Fargo accounts as well as Wells Fargo's ability to extend credit to our customers. We participate in the marketing of the private label cards, which includes the cost of customer reward programs. The Wells Fargo Alliance expires in fiscal 2024.

The Company received income of approximately $21 million and $22 million from the Wells Fargo Alliance during the three months ended May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018, respectively. 
 
Capital expenditures were $18.7 million and $39.2 million for the three months ended May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018, respectively. The capital expenditures were primarily related to equipment purchases and the remodeling of existing stores during the current year. Capital expenditures for fiscal 2019 are expected to be approximately $140 million compared to actual expenditures of $137 million during fiscal 2018.

During the three months ended May 4, 2019, the Company received cash proceeds of $13.4 million and recorded a related gain of $7.4 million for the sale of two store locations in Boardman, Ohio and Boynton Beach, Florida. The proceeds from the Boardman, Ohio store sale are being held in escrow for the acquisition of replacement property under like-kind exchange agreements. The escrow accounts are administered by an intermediary. Pursuant to the like-kind exchange agreements, the cash is restricted for a maximum of 180 days from the date of the property sale pending the acquisition of replacement property. As of May 4, 2019, the acquisition of replacement property had not yet occurred; therefore, the proceeds were classified as restricted cash on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

During the three months ended May 5, 2018, the Company received cash proceeds of $1.9 million from the sale of a location classified as an asset held for sale. These proceeds were being held in escrow for the acquisition of replacement property under like-kind exchange agreements. As of May 5, 2018, the acquisition of replacement property had not yet occurred; therefore, the proceeds were classified as restricted cash on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Subsequent to May 4, 2019, we closed the Boardman, Ohio (186,000 square feet) and the Muskogee, Oklahoma (70,000 square feet) store locations. We remain committed to closing under-performing stores where appropriate and may incur future closing costs related to such stores when they close.

The Company had cash on hand of $139.8 million as of May 4, 2019.  As part of our overall liquidity management strategy and for peak working capital requirements, the Company maintains an unsecured revolving credit facility that provides a borrowing capacity of $800 million with a $200 million expansion option ("credit agreement"). The credit agreement is

25


available to the Company for general corporate purposes including, among other uses, working capital financing, the issuance of letters of credit, capital expenditures and, subject to certain restrictions, the repayment of existing indebtedness and share repurchases. The rate of interest on borrowings is LIBOR plus 1.375%, and the commitment fee for unused borrowings is 0.20% per annum. To be in compliance with the financial covenants of the credit agreement, the Company's total leverage ratio cannot exceed 3.5 to 1.0, and the Company's coverage ratio cannot be less than 2.5 to 1.0, as defined in the credit agreement. At May 4, 2019, the Company was in compliance with all financial covenants related to the credit agreement.

At May 4, 2019, no borrowings were outstanding, and letters of credit totaling $21.8 million were issued under the credit agreement leaving unutilized availability under the facility of $778.2 million

During the three months ended May 4, 2019, the Company repurchased 0.2 million shares of Class A Common Stock at an average price of $70.85 per share for $17.4 million (including the accrual of $2.0 million of share repurchases that had not settled as of May 4, 2019) under the Company's March 2018 Plan. During the three months ended May 5, 2018, the Company repurchased 0.5 million shares of Class A Common Stock at an average price of $72.77 per share for $34.8 million. Additionally, the Company paid $2.0 million for share repurchases that had not yet settled but were accrued at February 3, 2018. At May 4, 2019, $389.5 million of authorization remained under the March 2018 Plan.  The ultimate disposition of the repurchased stock has not been determined.

During fiscal 2019, the Company expects to finance its capital expenditures, working capital requirements and stock repurchases from cash on hand, cash flows generated from operations and utilization of the credit facility.  Depending on conditions in the capital markets and other factors, the Company may from time to time consider other possible financing transactions, the proceeds of which could be used to refinance current indebtedness or for other corporate purposes.
 
There have been no material changes in the information set forth under caption “Contractual Obligations and Commercial Commitments” in Item 7,  Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 2, 2019.
 
OFF-BALANCE-SHEET ARRANGEMENTS
 
The Company has not created, and is not party to, any special-purpose entities or off-balance-sheet arrangements for the purpose of raising capital, incurring debt or operating the Company’s business.  The Company does not have any off-balance-sheet arrangements or relationships that are reasonably likely to materially affect the Company’s financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or the availability of capital resources.
