"Every area of our Company performed at very high levels in the fourth quarter," said Tommy Millner, Cabela's Chief Executive Officer. "Sales and profit per square foot at our next-generation stores were 40% higher than our legacy stores. Comparable store sales, aided by a surge in firearms and ammunition, increased 12.0%, a new record, and our Direct business grew 1.7%, the first increase in 11 quarters. Assuming more normalized sales of firearms and ammunition, comparable store sales would have increased 5.0%. These strong results combined to improve ROIC by 160 basis points to 15.9% for the full year, the highest level we have seen in eight years."
