On a GAAP basis, the Company reported consolidated net income for the first quarter ended May 4, 2013 of $64.8 million, or $0.52 per diluted share. GAAP results include an after-tax increase to net income of $4.3 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, resulting from an estimated partial recovery of its previously impaired JJB investment. The GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation is included in a table later in the release under the heading "Non-GAAP Net Income and Earnings Per Share Reconciliation."
Net sales for the first quarter of 2013 increased 4.1% to $1.3 billion. Adjusted for the shifted calendar due to the 53rd week in 2012, consolidated same store sales decreased 3.8%, compared to our guidance of an approximate 1 to 2% decrease. First quarter 2012 consolidated same store sales increased 8.4%. Shifted same store sales in the first quarter of 2013 for DICK'S Sporting Goods decreased 3.2% and Golf Galaxy sales decreased 11.8%.
Unshifted consolidated same store sales decreased 1.7%, compared to our guidance of approximately flat to a 1% increase, consisting of a 1.3% decrease at DICK'S Sporting Goods and a 7.4% decrease at Golf Galaxy. eCommerce penetration was 5.8% of total sales.
"In the first quarter, we generated earnings in line with our original guidance, but were not pleased with our sales results, which came in below our expectations," said Edward W. Stack, Chairman and CEO. "To drive sales and preserve margins in the near-term, we will work with our vendor partners, particularly in golf, to provide value offerings; we will aggressively execute our store remodel program, with approximately 75% of the identified stores expected to be completed by the end of the second quarter; and we will continue to tightly manage clearance inventory, which has declined meaningfully."
Mr. Stack continued, "Over the long-term, we have significant opportunity to profitably grow our business by doubling the size of our store base, aggressively building our eCommerce business, and further strengthening our Omni-channel platform."
In the first quarter, the Company opened two new DICK'S Sporting Goods stores. These stores are listed in a table later in the release under the heading "Store Count and Square Footage."
As of May 4, 2013, the Company operated 520 DICK'S Sporting Goods stores in 44 states, with approximately 28.3 million square feet and 81 Golf Galaxy stores in 30 states, with approximately 1.4 million square feet.
