Best Buy Reports Better-Than-Expected First Quarter Earnings

Domestic revenue of $8.48 billion increased 0.8% versus last year. The increase was driven by comparable sales growth of 1.3% and revenue from GreatCall, Inc. (“GreatCall”), which was acquired in Q3 FY19, partially offset by the loss of revenue from 105 Best Buy Mobile and 12 large-format store closures in the past year. Domestic gross profit rate was 23.7% versus 23.3% last year. The gross profit rate increase of approximately 40 basis points was primarily driven by the impact of GreatCall’s higher gross profit rate and improved product margin rates, which include the benefit of gross profit optimization initiatives. These favorable items were partially offset by higher supply chain costs. International revenue of $661 million decreased 5.2% versus last year. This decline was primarily driven by the impact of approximately 390 basis points of negative foreign currency exchange rates and a comparable sales decline of 1.2%, which was driven by Canada. International gross profit rate was 24.2% versus 23.4% last year. The gross profit rate increase of approximately 80 basis points was primarily due to Canada, which delivered improved gross profit rates in several product categories and increased revenue in the higher margin rate services category.
