Target Corporation (NYSE: TGT) today announced its second quarter 2021 financial results, which reflected increases in both sales and profitability on top of record growth a year ago. The Company reported second quarter GAAP earnings per share (EPS) of $3.65, up 8.9 percent from $3.35 in 2020. Second quarter Adjusted EPS of $3.64 grew 7.9 percent compared with $3.38 in 2020. The attached tables provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP to GAAP measures. All earnings per share figures refer to diluted EPS.

1 Adjusted EPS, a non-GAAP financial measure, excludes the impact of certain discretely managed items. See the tables of this release for additional information about the items that have been excluded from Adjusted EPS.

Brian Cornell, chairman and CEO of Target Corporation, said, "In the second quarter, our business generated continued growth on top of record increases a year ago, reinforcing Target's leadership position in retail. We've spent years building and investing in the durable model we have today, which is supported by a differentiated strategy and the best team in retail.

Even after unprecedented growth over the last two years, we see much more opportunity ahead of us, and we're leaning into opportunities to invest in the long-term growth and resiliency of our business. Our team and operating model can seamlessly adapt to changes in the environment, and we're well-positioned to deliver outstanding performance in the back half of the year."

Fiscal 2021 Guidance

For the second half of 2021, the Company expects high single digit growth in comparable sales, near the high end of the previous guidance range.

The Company now expects its full year operating income margin rate will be 8 percent or higher.

Operating Results

Comparable sales grew 8.9 percent in the second quarter, reflecting comparable store sales growth of 8.7 percent and comparable digital sales growth of 10 percent. Total revenue of $25.2 billion grew 9.5 percent compared with last year, driven by total sales growth of 9.4 percent and a 20.0 percent increase in other revenue. Operating income was $2.5 billion in second quarter 2021, up 7.2 percent from $2.3 billion in 2020.

Second quarter operating income margin rate was 9.8 percent in 2021 compared with 10.0 percent in 2020. Second quarter gross margin rate was 30.4 percent, compared with 30.9 percent in 2020. This year's gross margin rate reflected pressure from higher merchandise and freight costs and the comparison over last year's change in the sales return reserve estimate. These pressures were partially offset by the benefit of low markdowns, favorable category mix, and a shift in fulfillment mix into lower-cost same-day fulfillment options. Second quarter SG&A expense rate was 19.3 percent in 2021, compared with 19.4 percent in 2020, reflecting the benefit of leverage from strong sales growth, partially offset by expense rate increases to normalized levels in various expense categories, such as marketing.

Interest Expense and Taxes

The Company's second quarter 2021 net interest expense was $104 million, compared with $122 million last year. The decrease was primarily due to lower average debt balances.

Second quarter 2021 effective income tax rate was 23.4 percent, compared with 22.8 percent last year. The rate increase was driven by significantly higher earnings, which diluted the benefit of fixed and discrete tax items.

Capital Deployment and Return on Invested Capital

The Company paid dividends of $336 million in the second quarter, compared with $330 million last year, reflecting a 3.0 percent increase in the dividend per share, partially offset by a decline in average share count.

The Company repurchased $1.5 billion worth of its shares in second quarter 2021, retiring 6.6 million shares of common stock at an average price of $233.81. As of the end of the second quarter, the Company had approximately $1.8 billion of remaining capacity under the repurchase program approved by Target's Board of Directors in September 2019.

In addition, the Company announced today that Target's Board of Directors has authorized a new, $15 billion share repurchase program. Repurchases under this program will begin upon completion of the 2019 program.

"For decades, Target's capital deployment priorities have remained the same: First, we fully invest in our business, in projects that meet our strategic and financial criteria. Then, we return capital to our shareholders through a thoughtful balance of dividends and share repurchases, within the limits of our middle-A debt ratings," said Michael Fiddelke, executive vice president and chief financial officer of Target Corporation. "Our continued strong operating performance and ability to generate cash have supported meaningful investments in our team and our business, along with the return of capital through both dividends and share repurchases. This new authorization reflects our confidence in the sustained, strong performance of our business, which will enable continued share repurchases in keeping with our long-standing capital deployment goals."

For the trailing twelve months through second quarter 2021, after-tax return on invested capital (ROIC) was 31.7 percent, compared with 17.2 percent for the trailing twelve months through second quarter 2020. The increase in ROIC was driven primarily by increased profitability. The tables in this release provide additional information about the Company's ROIC calculation.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To provide additional transparency, we have disclosed non-GAAP adjusted diluted earnings per share (Adjusted EPS). This metric excludes certain items presented below. We believe this information is useful in providing period-to-period comparisons of the results of our operations. This measure is not in accordance with, or an alternative to, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP). The most comparable GAAP measure is diluted earnings per share. Adjusted EPS should not be considered in isolation or as a substitution for analysis of our results as reported in accordance with GAAP. Other companies may calculate Adjusted EPS differently, limiting the usefulness of the measure for comparisons with other companies.

(b)                   Includes civil unrest-related losses, net of associated insurance recoveries, and headquarters office space impairments,  none of which were individually significant.

Earnings before interest expense and income taxes (EBIT) and earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe these measures provide meaningful information about our operational efficiency compared with our competitors by excluding the impact of differences in tax jurisdictions and structures, debt levels, and, for EBITDA, capital investment. These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, GAAP. The most comparable GAAP measure is net earnings. EBIT and EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitution for analysis of our results as reported in accordance with GAAP. Other companies may calculate EBIT and EBITDA differently, limiting the usefulness of the measures for comparisons with other companies.

(a) Represents total depreciation and amortization, including amounts classified within Depreciation and Amortization and within Cost of Sales.

We have also disclosed after-tax ROIC, which is a ratio based on GAAP information, with the exception of the add-back of operating lease interest to operating income. We believe this metric is useful in assessing the effectiveness of our capital allocation over time. Other companies may calculate ROIC differently, limiting the usefulness of the measure for comparisons with other companies.

For the twelve months ended July 31, 2021, and August 1, 2020, includes tax effect of $1.9 billion and $1.1 billion, respectively, related to EBIT, and $18 million and $19 million, respectively, related to operating lease interest.
(c) Total short-term and long-term operating lease liabilities included within Accrued and Other Current Liabilities and Noncurrent Operating Lease Liabilities, respectively.
(d) Average based on the invested capital at the end of the current period and the invested capital at the end of the comparable prior period.
