Dick's Sporting Goods Inc reported sales and earnings results for the first quarter ended May 3, 2008. The results include the operating results of Golf Galaxy and Chick's Sporting Goods from their respective acquisition dates of February 13, 2007 and November 30, 2007.

First Quarter Results:

First quarter 2008 results include a pretax gain on sale of a corporate aircraft totaling $2.4 million, or $0.01 per diluted share. Earnings guidance provided on March 11, 2008 was for earnings per diluted share of $0.16 - 0.19.

Net sales for the quarter increased 11% to $912.1 million primarily due to new store sales, partially offset by a comparable store sales decrease of 3.8% for Dick's Sporting Goods stores, compared to the first quarter of 2007.
