STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (this “10-Q”) contains statements that constitute forward-looking statements as that term is defined by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements concern our business, operations and financial performance and condition as well as our plans, objectives and expectations for our business operations and financial performance and condition, which are subject to risks and uncertainties. All statements other than statements of historical fact included in this 10-Q are forward-looking statements. These statements may include words such as “aim,” “anticipate,” “assume,” “believe,” “can have,” “could,” “due,” “estimate,” “expect,” “goal,” “intend,” “likely,” “may,” “objective,” “plan,” “positioned,” “potential,” “predict,” “should,” “target,” “will,” “would” and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with any discussion of the timing or nature of future operating or financial performance or other events or trends. For example, all statements we make relating to our plans and objectives for future operations, growth or initiatives and strategies are forward-looking statements.

These forward-looking statements are based on current expectations, estimates, forecasts and projections about our business and the industry in which we operate and our management’s beliefs and assumptions. We derive many of our forward-looking statements from our own operating budgets and forecasts, which are based upon many detailed assumptions. While we believe that our assumptions are reasonable, we caution that predicting the impact of known factors is very difficult, and we cannot anticipate all factors that could affect our actual results.

All of our forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that may cause our actual results to differ materially from our expectations. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from our expectations include, but are not limited to:

current and future government regulations, in particular regulations relating to the sale of firearms and ammunition, which may impact the supply and demand for our products and our ability to conduct our business;
our retail-based business model which is impacted by general economic and market conditions and economic, market and financial uncertainties that may cause a decline in consumer spending;
our concentration of stores in the Western United States which makes us susceptible to adverse conditions in this region, and could affect our sales and cause our operating results to suffer;
the highly fragmented and competitive industry in which we operate and the potential for increased competition;
changes in consumer demands, including regional preferences, which we may not be able to identify and respond to in a timely manner;
our entrance into new markets or operations in existing markets, which may not be successful; and
the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on our operations.

The above is not a complete list of factors or events that could cause actual results to differ from our expectations, and we cannot predict all of them. All written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to us, or persons acting on our behalf, are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements disclosed under “Part I. Item 1A. Risk Factors,” appearing in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 29, 2022 and “Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and elsewhere in this 10-Q, as such disclosures may be amended, supplemented or superseded from time to time by other reports we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including subsequent Annual Reports on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, and public communications. You should evaluate all forward-looking statements made in this 10-Q and otherwise in the context of these risks and uncertainties.

Potential investors and other readers are urged to consider these factors carefully in evaluating the forward-looking statements and are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements we make. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this 10-Q and are not guarantees of future performance or developments

and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that are in many cases beyond our control. Except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements publicly, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.

SPORTSMAN’S WAREHOUSE HOLDINGS, INC.

AND SUBSIDIARIES

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)

Amounts reported in thousands, except per share data and store count data

(1) Description of Business and Basis of Presentation

Description of Business

Sportsman’s Warehouse Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Holdings”), and its subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company”) operate retail sporting goods stores. As of April 30, 2022, the Company operated 125 stores in 29 states. The Company also operates an e-commerce platform at www.sportsmans.com. The Company’s stores and website are aggregated into one operating and reportable segment.

Basis of Presentation

The condensed consolidated financial statements included herein are unaudited and have been prepared by management of the Company pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. The Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheet as of January 29, 2022 was derived from the Company’s audited consolidated balance sheet as of that date. All other condensed consolidated financial statements contained herein are unaudited and reflect all adjustments that are, in the opinion of management, necessary to summarize fairly our condensed consolidated financial statements for the periods presented. All of these adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. The results of the fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be obtained for the year ending January 28, 2023. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 29, 2022 filed with the SEC on March 30, 2022 (the “Fiscal 2021 Form 10-K”).

(2) Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

The Company’s significant accounting policies are described in Note 2 to the Company’s Fiscal 2021 Form 10-K. Except for the changes below, the Company has consistently applied the accounting policies to all periods presented in these condensed consolidated financial statements.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

In March 2020, the FASB issued (ASU) 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting. This ASU provides temporary optional expedients and exceptions to existing guidance on contract modifications and hedge accounting to facilitate the market transition from existing reference rates, such as the London Inter-Bank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”), certain tenors of which were phased out in 2021, to alternate reference rates, such as the Secured Overnight Financing Rate.

The standard is currently effective and upon adoption may be applied prospectively to contract modifications made on or before December 31, 2022. The provisions have impact as contract modifications and other changes occur while LIBOR is phased out. The Company is in the process of evaluating the optional relief guidance provided within this ASU. Management will continue its assessment and monitor regulatory developments during the LIBOR transition period.

(3) Revenue Recognition

Revenue recognition accounting policy

The Company operates solely as an outdoor retailer, which includes both retail stores and an e-commerce platform, that offers a broad range of products in the United States and online. Generally, all revenues are recognized when control of the promised goods is transferred to customers, in an amount that reflects the consideration in exchange for those goods. Accordingly, the Company implicitly enters into a contract with customers to deliver merchandise inventory at the point of sale. Collectability is reasonably assured since the Company only extends credit for immaterial purchases to certain municipalities.

Substantially all of the Company’s revenue is for single performance obligations for the following distinct items:

Retail store sales

E-commerce sales

Gift cards and loyalty rewards program

For performance obligations related to retail store and e-commerce sales contracts, the Company typically transfers control, for retail stores, upon consummation of the sale when the product is paid for and taken by the customer and, for e-commerce sales, when the products are tendered for delivery to the common carrier.

The transaction price for each contract is the stated price on the product, reduced by any stated discounts at that point in time. The Company does not engage in sales of products that attach a future material right which could result in a separate performance obligation for the purchase of goods in the future at a material discount. The implicit point-of-sale contract with the customer, as reflected in the transaction receipt, states the final terms of the sale, including the description, quantity, and price of each product purchased. Payment for the Company’s contracts is due in full upon delivery. The customer agrees to a stated price implicit in the contract that does not vary over the contract.

The transaction price relative to sales subject to a right of return reflects the amount of estimated consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled. This amount of variable consideration included in the transaction price, and measurement of net sales, is included in net sales only to the extent that it is probable that there will be no significant reversal in a future period. Actual amounts of consideration ultimately received may differ from the Company’s estimates. The allowance for sales returns is estimated based upon historical experience and a provision for estimated returns is recorded as a reduction in sales in the relevant period. The estimated merchandise inventory cost related to the sales returns is recorded in prepaid expenses and other. The estimated refund liabilities are recorded in accrued expenses. If actual results in the future vary from the Company’s estimates, the Company adjusts these estimates, which would affect net sales and earnings in the period such variances become known.

Contract liabilities are recognized primarily for gift card sales and the Company’s loyalty reward program. Cash received from the sale of gift cards is recorded as a contract liability in accrued expenses, and the Company recognizes revenue upon the customer’s redemption of the gift card. Gift card breakage is recognized as revenue in proportion to the pattern of customer redemptions by applying a historical breakage rate of 4.0% when no escheat liability to relevant jurisdictions exist. Based upon historical experience, gift cards are predominantly redeemed in the first two years following their issuance date. The Company does not sell or provide gift cards that carry expiration dates.

Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 606 requires the Company to allocate the transaction price between the goods and the loyalty reward points based on the relative standalone selling price. The Company recognized revenue for the breakage of loyalty reward points as revenue in proportion to the pattern of customer redemption of the points by applying a historical breakage rate of 25%.

As it relates to e-commerce sales, the Company accounts for shipping and handling as fulfillment activities, and not as separate performance obligation. Accordingly, the Company recognizes revenue for only one performance obligation, the sale of the product, at the shipping point (when the customer gains control). Revenue associated with shipping and handling is not material. The costs associated with fulfillment are recorded in costs of goods sold.

Table of Contents

The Company offers promotional financing and credit cards issued by a third-party bank that manages and directly extends credit to the Company’s customers. The Company provides a license to its brand and marketing services, and the Company facilitates credit applications in its stores and online. The banks are the sole owners of the accounts receivable generated under the program and, accordingly, the Company does not hold any customer receivables related to these programs and acts as an agent in the financing transactions with customers. The Company is eligible to receive a profit share from certain of its banking partners based on the annual performance of their corresponding portfolio, and the Company receives monthly payments based on forecasts of full-year performance. This is a form of variable consideration. The Company records such profit share as revenue over time using the most likely amount method, which reflects the amount earned each month when it is determined that the likelihood of a significant revenue reversal is not probable, which is typically monthly. Profit-share payments occur monthly, shortly after the end of each program month.

Taxes assessed by a governmental authority that are both imposed on and concurrent with a specific revenue-producing transaction, that are collected by the Company from a customer, are excluded from revenue.

Sales returns

The Company allows customers to return items purchased within 30 days provided the merchandise is in resaleable condition with original packaging and the original sales/gift receipt is presented. The Company estimates a reserve for sales returns and records the respective reserve amounts, including a right to return asset when a product is expected to be returned and resold. Historical experience of actual returns and customer return rights are the key factors used in determining the estimated sales returns.

Contract balances

The following table provides information about right of return assets, contract liabilities, and sales return liabilities with customers as of April 30, 2022 and January 29, 2022:

For the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022, the Company recognized approximately $434 in gift card breakage and approximately $604 in loyalty reward breakage. For the 13 weeks ended May 1, 2021, the Company recognized approximately $381 in gift card breakage and approximately $1,175 in loyalty reward breakage. For the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022, the Company recognized revenue of $10,588 relating to contract liabilities that existed at January 29, 2022.

The current balance of the right of return assets is the expected amount of inventory to be returned that is expected to be resold. The current balance of the contract liabilities primarily relates to the gift card and loyalty reward program liabilities. The Company expects the revenue associated with these liabilities to be recognized in proportion to the pattern of customer redemptions over the next two years. The current balance of sales return liabilities is the expected amount of sales returns from sales that have occurred.

(6) Leases

At the inception of the lease, the Company’s operating leases have remaining certain lease terms of up to 15 years, which typically includes multiple options for the Company to extend the lease which are not reasonably certain.

The Company determines whether a contract is or contains a lease at contract inception. As the rate implicit in the lease is not readily determinable in most of the Company’s leases, it uses its incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at commencement date to determine the present value of lease payments. The Company's incremental borrowing rate for a lease is the rate of interest it would have to pay on a collateralized basis to borrow an amount equal to the lease payments under similar terms. The operating lease asset also includes any fixed lease payments made and includes lease incentives and incurred initial direct costs. Operating lease expense for fixed lease payments is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. The Company’s lease terms may include options to extend or terminate the lease. Additionally, the Company’s leases do not contain any material residual guarantees or material restrictive covenants.

In the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022, the Company recorded a non-cash increase of $6,378 to the right of use assets and operating lease liabilities resulting from lease remeasurements from the exercise of lease extension options, acquired leases, and new leases added.

The Company’s lease agreements do not contain any material residual value guarantees or material restrictive covenants.

In accordance with ASC 842, total lease expense was comprised of the following:

(7) Revolving Line of Credit

On May 23, 2018, Sportsman’s Warehouse, Inc. (“SWI”), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, as lead borrower, and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (“Wells Fargo”), with a consortium of banks led by Wells Fargo, entered into an Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (as amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified, the “Credit Agreement”). The Credit Agreement governs the Company’s senior secured revolving credit facility (“Revolving Line of Credit”) and a $40,000 term loan (the “Term Loan”).  The Revolving Line of Credit provides borrowing capacity of up to $250,000, subject to a borrowing base calculation. The Term Loan was repaid in full during the 39-week period ended May 1, 2021.

In conjunction with the Credit Agreement, the Company incurred $1,331 of fees paid to various parties which were capitalized. Fees associated with the Revolving Line of Credit were recorded in prepaid expenses and other assets.

As of April 30, 2022 and January 29, 2022, the Company had $112,544 and $76,976, respectively, in outstanding revolving loans under the Revolving Line of Credit. Amounts outstanding are offset on the condensed consolidated balance sheets by amounts in depository accounts under lock-box type arrangements, which were $14,039 and $10,923 as of April 30, 2022 and January 29, 2022, respectively. As of April 30, 2022, the Company had stand-by commercial letters of credit of $1,967 under the terms of the Revolving Line of Credit.

Borrowings under the Revolving Line of Credit bear interest based on either, at the Company’s option, the base rate or LIBOR, in each case plus an applicable margin. The base rate is the higher of (1) Wells Fargo’s prime rate, (2) the federal funds rate (as defined in the credit agreement) plus 0.50% and (3) the one-month LIBOR (as defined in the Credit Agreement) plus 1.00%. The applicable margin for loans under the Revolving Line of Credit, which varies based on the average daily availability, ranges from 0.25% to 0.75% per year for base rate loans and from 1.25% to 1.75% per year for LIBOR loans.

The Company may be required to make mandatory prepayments under the Revolving Line of Credit in the event of a disposition of certain property or assets, in the event of receipt of certain insurance or condemnation proceeds, upon the issuance of certain debt or equity securities, upon the incurrence of certain indebtedness for borrowed money or upon the receipt of certain payments not received in the ordinary course of business.

The Credit Agreement contains customary affirmative and negative covenants, including covenants that limit the Company’s ability to incur, create or assume certain indebtedness, to create, incur or assume certain liens, to make

13

Table of Contents

certain investments, to make sales, transfers and dispositions of certain property and to undergo certain fundamental changes, including certain mergers, liquidations and consolidations. The Credit Agreement also requires the Company to maintain a minimum availability at all times of not less than 10% of the gross borrowing base and contains customary events of default. The Revolving Line of Credit matures on May 23, 2023.

Each of the subsidiaries of Holdings is a borrower under the Revolving Line of Credit, and all obligations under the Revolving Line of Credit are guaranteed by Holdings. All of the obligations under the Revolving Line of Credit are secured by a lien on substantially all of the Holdings’ tangible and intangible assets and the tangible and intangible assets of all of Holdings’ subsidiaries, including a pledge of all capital stock of each of Holdings’ subsidiaries. The lien securing the obligations under the Revolving Line of Credit is a first priority lien as to certain liquid assets, including cash, accounts receivable, deposit accounts and inventory.

As of April 30, 2022 and January 29, 2022, the Credit Agreement had $270 and $333, respectively, in deferred financing fees. During the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022 and May 1, 2021, the Company recognized $63 of non-cash interest expense with respect to the amortization of deferred financing fees.

As of April 30, 2022 and May 1, 2021, gross borrowings under the Revolving Line of Credit were $372,716 and $357,478, respectively. As of April 30, 2022 and May 1, 2021, gross paydowns under the Revolving Line of Credit were $337,639 and $357,640, respectively.

Restricted Net Assets

The provisions of the Revolving Line of Credit restrict all of the net assets of the Company’s consolidated subsidiaries, which constitute all of the net assets on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheet as of April 30, 2022, from being used to pay any dividends without prior written consent from the financial institutions party to the Company’s Revolving Line of Credit.

(8) Income Taxes

The Company recognized income tax expense of $441 and $2,952, respectively, in the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022 and May 1, 2021. The Company’s effective tax rate for the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022 and May 1, 2021 was 18.1% and 22.0%, respectively. The Company’s effective tax rate will generally differ from the U.S. Federal statutory rate of 21.0%, due to state taxes, permanent items, and discrete items relating to stock award deductions.

(9) Earnings Per Share

Basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing net income by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding, reduced by the number of shares repurchased and held in treasury, during the period. Diluted earnings per share represents basic earnings per share adjusted to include the potentially dilutive effect of outstanding share option awards, nonvested share awards and nonvested share unit awards.

Stock-Based Compensation

During the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022 the Company recognized total stock-based compensation expense of $1,358. During the 13 weeks ended May 1, 2021, the Company recognized total stock-based compensation expense of $1,016. Compensation expense related to the Company's stock-based payment awards is recognized in selling, general, and administrative expenses in the condensed consolidated statements of operations.

Employee Stock Plans

As of April 30, 2022, the number of shares available for awards under the 2019 Performance Incentive Plan (the “2019 Plan”) was 1,626. As of April 30, 2022, there were 1,389 unvested stock awards outstanding under the 2019 Plan.

Employee Stock Purchase Plan

The Company also has an Employee Stock Purchase Plan (“ESPP”) that was approved by shareholders in fiscal year 2015, under which 800 shares of common stock were authorized. For the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022, no shares were issued under the ESPP and, as of April 30, 2022, the number of shares available for issuance was 374.

Nonvested Performance-Based Stock Awards

During the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022, the Company issued 141 nonvested performance-based stock awards to employees at a weighted average grant date fair value of $11.29 per share. The nonvested performance-based stock awards issued to employees vest in full on the third anniversary of the grant date. The number of shares issued is contingent on management achieving fiscal year 2022, 2023, and 2024 performance targets for total revenue growth and adjusted EPS. If minimum threshold performance targets are not achieved, no shares will vest. The maximum number of shares subject to the award is 282, and the “target” number of shares subject to the award is 141 as reported below. Following the end of the performance period (fiscal years 2022, 2023, and 2024), the number of shares eligible to vest, based on actual performance, will be fixed and vesting will then be subject to each employee’s continued employment over the remaining service period.

Legal Matters

The Company is involved in various legal matters generally incidental to its business. After discussion with legal counsel, management is not aware of any matters for which the likelihood of a loss is probable and reasonably estimable and which could have a material impact on its consolidated financial condition, liquidity, or results of operations.

TMS McCarthy, LP, Etc., Pltf. v. Sportsman’s Warehouse Southwest, Inc. Etc. Et Al., Dfts.- On June 23, 2020 TMS McCarthy, LP filed a complaint in the Superior Court of CA, County of Santa Clara against Sportsman’s Warehouse Southwest, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Sportsman’s Warehouse Holdings Inc., claiming the Company wrongfully terminated the lease relating to one of its stores. The Company believes the plaintiffs’ complaint is without merit based on the plain language of the lease at issue and on August 14, 2020 filed a counterclaim for declaratory

relief. No reasonable estimate of the amount of any potential losses or range of potential losses relating to this matter can be determined at this time.

(13) Subsequent Events

On May 27, 2022, SWI, as lead borrower, the Company and other subsidiaries of the Company, each as borrowers or guarantors, amended and restated the Credit Agreement governing the Revolving Line of Credit with a consortium of banks led by Wells Fargo (the “Amended Credit Agreement”). The Amended Credit Agreement, among other things, increased the maximum borrowing capacity under the Revolving Line of Credit from $250,000 to $350,000, subject to a borrowing base calculation, extended the maturity date from May 23, 2023 to May 27, 2027 and-replaced LIBOR with Term SOFR as the benchmark interest rate and made certain conforming changes related thereto. As of May 27, 2022, the Company had $138,543 outstanding under the Revolving Line of Credit and stand-by commercial letters of credit of $1,967 under the terms of the Revolving Line of Credit.

Pursuant to the Amended Credit Agreement, borrowings under the Revolving Line of Credit will bear interest based on either the base rate or Term SOFR, at the Company’s option, in each case plus an applicable margin. The base rate is the greatest of (1) the floor rate (as defined in the credit agreement as a rate of interest equal to 0.0%), (2) Wells Fargo’s prime rate, (3) the federal funds rate (as defined in the Amended Credit Agreement) plus 0.50% or (4) the one-month Term SOFR (as defined in the Amended Credit Agreement) plus 1.00%. The applicable margin for loans under the revolving credit facility, which varies based on the average daily availability, ranges from 0.25% to 0.50% per year for base rate loans and from 1.35% to 1.60% per year for Term SOFR loans. The Company is required to pay a commitment fee for the unused portion of the revolving credit facility, which will range from 0.20% to 0.225% per annum, depending on the average daily availability under the Revolving Line of Credit.

Each of the subsidiaries of Holdings continues to be a borrower under the Revolving Line of Credit, and all obligations under the Revolving Line of Credit are guaranteed by Holdings. All of the obligations under the Revolving Line of Credit are secured by a lien on substantially all of Holdings’ tangible and intangible working capital assets and the tangible and intangible working capital assets of all of Holdings’ subsidiaries. The lien securing the obligations under the Revolving Line of Credit is a first priority lien as to certain liquid assets, including cash, accounts receivable, deposit accounts and inventory.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The discussion below contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including those which are discussed in “Part I. Item 1A. Risk Factors” in our Fiscal 2021 Form 10-K. Also see “Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” preceding Part I in this 10-Q.

The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included in this 10-Q.

Overview

We are an outdoor sporting goods retailer focused on meeting the everyday needs of the seasoned outdoor veteran, the first-time participant and everyone in between. Our mission is to provide outstanding gear and exceptional service to inspire outdoor memories.

Our business was founded in 1986 as a single retail store in Midvale, Utah. Today, we operate 125 stores in 29 states, totaling approximately 4.8 million gross square feet. We list the locations of our stores on our website, www.sportsmans.com. We also operate an e-commerce platform at www.sportsmans.com.

Our stores and our e-commerce platform are aggregated into one operating and reportable segment.

COVID-19 Pandemic

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in mid-March 2020 and continuing into the first quarter of 2022, we experienced a significant increase in sales from pre-pandemic sales. A larger than normal portion of those sales came from certain product categories, particularly firearms and ammunition. While our same store sales decreased by 11.6% during the first quarter of 2022 compared to the first quarter of 2021, when compared to the first quarters of 2020 and 2019, same store sales increased by 11.1% and 38.2%, respectively.

In addition, we continue to see some interruption with various vendors as a result of restrictions or limitations on their operations, including labor shortages, due to the pandemic. We have been working closely with our vendors to limit such disruption and we have been successful in building up our inventory in recent months. The pandemic and current economic conditions have also resulted in a short supply of qualified employees.

We cannot predict the future impact on us of the COVID-19 outbreak. The future impact of the COVID-19 pandemic will depend on a number of future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including, but not limited to the duration, spread and severity of the COVID-19 outbreak, any resurgence of COVID-19, the effects of the outbreak on our customers and vendors and the remedial actions and stimulus measures adopted by local and federal governments. Further, we may experience a decrease in sales if the increased demand we experienced during the pandemic subsides.

How We Assess the Performance of Our Business

In assessing the performance of our business, we consider a variety of performance and financial measures. The key measures for determining how our business is performing are net sales, same store sales, gross margin, selling, general, and administrative expenses, income from operations and adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”).

Net Sales and Same Store Sales

Our net sales are primarily received from revenue generated in our stores and also include sales generated through our e-commerce platform. When measuring revenue generated from our stores, we review our same store sales as well as the performance of our stores that have not operated for a sufficient amount of time to be included in same store sales. We include net sales from a store in same store sales on the first day of the 13th full fiscal month following the store’s

19

Table of Contents

opening or acquisition by us. We exclude sales from stores that were closed during the period from our same store sales calculation. We include net sales from e-commerce in our calculation of same store sales. For fiscal years consisting of 53 weeks, we exclude net sales during the 53rd week from our calculation of same store sales. Some of our competitors and other retailers may calculate same store sales differently than we do. As a result, data regarding our same store sales may not be comparable to similar data made available by other retailers.

Measuring the change in year-over-year same store sales allows us to evaluate how our retail store base is performing. Various factors affect same store sales, including:

the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic;
changes or anticipated changes to regulations related to some of the products we sell;
consumer preferences, buying trends and overall economic trends;
our ability to identify and respond effectively to local and regional trends and customer preferences;
our ability to provide quality customer service that will increase our conversion of shoppers into paying customers;
the success of our omni-channel strategy and our e-commerce platform;
competition in the regional market of a store;
atypical weather;
new product introductions and changes in our product mix; and
changes in pricing and average ticket sales.

Opening new stores and acquiring store locations is also an important part of our growth strategy. While our target is to grow square footage at a rate of greater than 5%-10% annually, we may deviate from this target if attractive opportunities are presented to open stores or acquire new store locations outside of our target growth rate.

We also have been scaling our e-commerce platform and increasing sales through our website, www.sportsmans.com.

We believe the key drivers to increasing our total net sales include:

increasing our total gross square footage by opening new stores and through strategic acquisitions;

continuing to increase and improve same store sales in our existing markets;

increasing customer visits to our stores and improving our conversion rate through focused marketing efforts and continually high standards of customer service;

growing our loyalty and credit card programs; and

expanding our omni channel capabilities through larger assortment and inventory, expanded content and expertise and better user experience.

Gross Margin

Gross profit is our net sales less cost of goods sold. Gross margin measures our gross profit as a percentage of net sales. Our cost of goods sold primarily consists of merchandise acquisition costs, including freight-in costs, shipping costs, payment term discounts received from the vendor and vendor allowances and rebates associated directly with merchandise and shipping costs related to e-commerce sales.

We believe the key drivers to improving our gross margin are increasing the product mix to higher margin products, particularly apparel and footwear, increasing foot traffic within our stores and traffic to our website, improving buying opportunities with our vendor partners and coordinating pricing strategies among our stores and our merchandise group. Our ability to properly manage our inventory can also impact our gross margin. Successful inventory management ensures we have sufficient high margin products in stock at all times to meet customer demand, while overstocking of items could lead to markdowns in order to help a product sell. We believe that the overall growth of our business will

20

Table of Contents

allow us to generally maintain or increase our gross margins, because increased merchandise volumes will enable us to maintain our strong relationships with our vendors.

Selling, General, and Administrative Expenses

We closely manage our selling, general, and administrative expenses. Our selling, general, and administrative expenses are comprised of payroll, rent and occupancy, depreciation and amortization, acquisition expenses, pre-opening expenses and other operating expenses, including stock-based compensation expense. Pre-opening expenses include expenses incurred in the preparation and opening of a new store location, such as payroll, travel and supplies, but do not include the cost of the initial inventory or capital expenditures required to open a location.

Our selling, general, and administrative expenses are primarily influenced by the volume of net sales of our locations, except for our corporate payroll, rent and occupancy and depreciation and amortization, which are generally fixed in nature. We control our selling, general, and administrative expenses through a budgeting and reporting process that allows our personnel to adjust our expenses as trends in net sales activity are identified.

We expect that our selling, general, and administrative expenses will increase in future periods due to our continuing growth. In addition, we have experienced increased payroll expenses due to increased minimum wages and generally increasing salaries and wages due to a competitive labor market and inflation.

Income from Operations

Income from operations is gross profit less selling, general, and administrative expenses. We use income from operations as an indicator of the productivity of our business and our ability to manage selling, general, and administrative expenses.

Adjusted EBITDA

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income plus interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, pre-opening expenses, and other gains, losses and expenses that we do not believe are indicative of our ongoing expenses. In evaluating our business, we use Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin as an additional measurement tool for purposes of business decision-making, including evaluating store performance, developing budgets and managing expenditures. See “—Non-GAAP Measures.”

Thirteen Weeks Ended April 30, 2022 Compared to Thirteen Weeks Ended May 1, 2021

Net Sales. Net sales decreased by $17.5 million, or 5.3%, to $309.5 million during the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022 compared to $327.0 million in the corresponding period of fiscal year 2021. Our net sales decreased primarily due to lower demand across all product categories as we anniversaried the increased demand during the first quarter of fiscal 2021 driven by the COVID-19 economic stimulus package (the American Rescue Plan) and social unrest, partially offset by our opening of 13 new stores since May 1, 2021. Stores that have been open for less than 12 months and were, therefore, not included in our same store sales, contributed $20.0 million to net sales. Same store sales decreased by 11.6% for the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022 compared to the comparable 13-week period of fiscal year 2021, primarily driven by a decrease in demand across all product categories as we anniversaried the prior year same store sales increase of 24.1% experienced in the 13 weeks ended May 1, 2021.

Our apparel department saw an increase of $0.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2022 compared to the comparable 13-week period of fiscal year 2021 due to the opening of 13 new stores since May 1, 2021. Our fishing, hunting and shooting, camping, optics, electronics and accessories and footwear categories saw decreases of $5.4 million, $5.1 million, $3.5 million, $2.8 million and $0.3 million, respectively, in the first quarter of fiscal year 2022

22

Table of Contents

compared to the comparable 13-week period of fiscal year 2021. Within the hunting and shooting department, our firearm category saw a decrease of $8.8 million or 9.9%, while our ammunition category saw an increase of $7.6 million or 13.9% in the first quarter of fiscal year 2022 compared to the comparable 13-week period of fiscal year 2021. The decrease seen in the firearm category is primarily due to lower demand as we anniversaried the increased demand during the first quarter of fiscal 2021 driven by the COVID-19 economic stimulus package (the American Rescue Plan) and social unrest, partially offset by the opening of 13 new stores since May 1, 2021. The increase in the ammunition category is due to improvements in the supply chain disruptions seen in this category over the past two fiscal years as well as the opening of 13 new stores since May 1, 2021.

With respect to same store sales, during the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022, our fishing, optics, electronics and accessories, camping, hunting and shooting, footwear and apparel departments saw decreases of 19.4%, 15.7%, 14.9%, 10.0%, 6.7% and 4.4%, respectively, as we anniversaried the increased demand during the first quarter of fiscal 2021 driven by the COVID-19 economic stimulus package (the American Rescue Plan) and social unrest. As of April 30, 2022, we had 113 stores included in our same store sales calculation.

Gross Profit. Gross profit decreased to $99.1 million during the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022 compared to $104.0 million for the corresponding period of fiscal year 2021. As a percentage of net sales, gross profit increased to 32.0% for the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022, compared to 31.8% for the corresponding period of fiscal year 2021 primarily driven by favorable product sales mix and increased product margins across most departments, partially offset by higher freight costs. We expect higher transportation costs to continue to impact the business during the remainder of fiscal 2022 and beyond.

Selling, General, and Administrative Expenses. Selling, general, and administrative expenses increased by $5.7 million, or 6.3%, to $96.1 million during the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022 from $90.4 million for the comparable 13-week period of fiscal year 2021. This increase was primarily due to an increase in other selling, general and administrative expenses of $4.5 million, which was largely the result of a return to pre-pandemic levels of marketing and travel activities compared to the comparable 13-week period of fiscal 2021. We also had increased pre-opening expenses of $0.8 million due to the timing of opening new stores, as well as increases in depreciation, payroll and rent of $1.6 million, $0.8 million, $0.6 million, respectively, during the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022 primarily related to the opening of 13 new stores since May 1, 2021. These increases were offset by a decrease in acquisition costs of $2.8 million due to the terminated merger with Great Outdoors Group. As a percentage of net sales, selling, general, and administrative expenses increased to 31.0% of net sales in the first quarter of fiscal year 2022, compared to 27.7% of net sales in the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, due to the same reasons disclosed for the increase in selling, general, and administrative expenses.

Interest Expense. Interest expense increased by $0.4 million, or 200.0%, to $0.6 million during the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022 from $0.2 million for the comparable 13-week period of fiscal year 2021. Interest expense increased primarily as a result of increased borrowings on our revolving credit facility during the first quarter of fiscal year 2022 compared to the first quarter of fiscal year 2021.

Income Taxes. We recognized income tax expense of $0.4 million during the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022 compared to an income tax expense of $3.0 million during the comparable 13-week period of fiscal year 2021. Our effective tax rates for the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022 and May 1, 2021 were 18.1% and 22.0%, respectively. Our effective tax rate will generally differ from the U.S. Federal statutory rate of 21.0%, due to state taxes, permanent items, and discrete items relating to stock award deductions.

Seasonality

Due to the openings of hunting season across the country and consumers’ holiday buying patterns, net sales are typically higher in the third and fourth fiscal quarters than in the first and second fiscal quarters. We also incur additional expenses in the third and fourth fiscal quarters due to higher sales volume and increased staffing in our stores. We anticipate that our net sales will continue to reflect this seasonal pattern.

The timing of our new retail store openings also may have an impact on our quarterly results. First, we incur certain non-recurring expenses related to opening each new retail store, which are expensed as they are incurred. Second, most store expenses generally vary proportionately with net sales, but there is also a fixed cost component, which includes occupancy costs. These fixed costs typically result in lower store profitability during the initial period after a new retail

23

Table of Contents

store opens. Due to both of these factors, new retail store openings may result in a temporary decline in operating profit, in dollars and/or as a percentage of net sales.

Weather conditions affect outdoor activities and the demand for related apparel and equipment. Customers’ demand for our products, and, therefore, our net sales, can be significantly impacted by weather patterns on a local, regional and national basis.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Overview; Sources and Uses of Cash

Our primary cash requirements are for seasonal working capital needs and capital expenditures related to opening and acquiring new store locations. For both the short-term and the long-term, our sources of liquidity to meet these needs have primarily been borrowings under our revolving credit facility, operating cash flows and short and long-term debt financings from banks and financial institutions. We believe that our cash on hand, cash generated by operating activities and funds available under our revolving credit facility will be sufficient to finance our operating activities for at least the next twelve months and beyond. In addition, on December 2, 2021, we received a $55.0 million cash payment from Great Outdoors Group, LLC (“Great Outdoors Group”) in connection with the termination of our previously pending merger with a subsidiary of Great Outdoors Group.

Material Cash Requirements

Our material cash requirements are primarily for opening and acquiring new store locations, along with our general operating expenses and other expenses discussed below.

Capital Expenditures. For the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022, we incurred approximately $12.0 million in capital expenditures primarily related to the construction of new stores and the refurbishment of existing stores during the period. We expect capital expenditures between $48 million and $55 million for fiscal year 2022 primarily to refurbish some of our existing stores and to open 10 new stores in fiscal year 2022. We intend to fund these capital expenditures with our operating cash flows, cash on hand and funds available under our revolving credit facility. Other investment opportunities, such as potential strategic acquisitions or store expansion rates in excess of those presently planned, may require additional funding.

Principal and Interest Payments. We maintain a $250.0 million revolving credit facility. As of April 30, 2022, $112.5 million was outstanding under the revolving credit facility. Assuming no additional repayments or borrowings on our revolving credit facility after April 30, 2022 our interest payments would be approximately $2.3 million for fiscal year 2022 based on the interest rate at April 30, 2022. See below under “Indebtedness” for additional information regarding our revolving credit facility, including the interest rate applicable to any borrowing under such facility.

Operating Lease Obligations. Lease commitments consist principally of leases for our retail stores, corporate office and distribution center. Our leases often include options which allow us to extend the terms beyond the initial lease term. For the remainder of 2022, our expected operating lease payments will be $47.8 million and our total committed lease payments are $377.9 million as of April 30, 2022. Other operating lease obligations consist of distribution center equipment. Additional information regarding our operating leases is available in our Fiscal 2021 Form 10-K.

Purchase Obligations. In the ordinary course of business, we enter into arrangements with vendors to purchase merchandise in advance of expected delivery. We or the vendor can generally terminate the purchase orders at any time. These purchase orders do not contain any termination payments or other penalties if cancelled.

Share Repurchase Authorization. In addition, our board recently authorized a share repurchase program to allow for the repurchase of up to $75.0 million of outstanding shares of our common stock for the period from March 31, 2022 to March 31, 2023. We may repurchase shares of our common stock at any time or from time to time, without prior notice, subject to market conditions and other considerations. Our repurchases may be made through Rule 10b5-1 plans, accelerated share repurchase transactions, open market purchases, privately negotiated transactions, tender offers, block purchases or other transactions. We intend to fund repurchases under the repurchase program using cash on hand or

24

Table of Contents

available borrowings under our revolving credit facility. We have no obligation to repurchase any shares of our common stock under the share repurchase program and we may modify, suspend or discontinue it at any time.

Net cash used in operating activities was $16.8 million for the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022, compared to cash used in operating activities of $4.0 million for the corresponding period of fiscal year 2021, a change of approximately $12.8 million. The decrease in our cash flows from operating activities was primarily the result of our buildup of inventory during the first 13 weeks of fiscal 2022 and a reduction in accrued expenses.

Net cash used in investing activities was $12.0 million for the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022 compared to $5.6 million for the corresponding period of fiscal year 2021. For the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022, we incurred capital expenditures related to the construction of new stores and the refurbishment of existing stores.

Net cash provided by financing activities was $29.5 million for the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022, compared to net cash provided in financing activities of $3.8 million for the corresponding period of fiscal year 2021. During the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022, we had an increase in borrowings under our revolving line of credit, primarily to pay for the increased capital expenditures associated with the opening of new stores and refurbishing of existing stores and the buildup of our inventory.

Indebtedness

As of April 30, 2022, we maintained a $250.0 million revolving credit facility, with $112.5 million was outstanding under the revolving credit facility. Borrowings under our revolving credit facility are subject to a borrowing base calculation. Our revolving credit facility is governed by an amended and restated credit agreement with a consortium of banks led by Wells Fargo Bank, National Association. As of April 30, 2022, we had $110.5 million available for borrowing, subject to certain borrowing base restrictions, and $2.0 million in stand-by commercial letters of credit.

On May 27, 2022, we amended and restated the credit agreement governing our revolving credit facility. The amendment, among other things, increased the maximum borrowing capacity under the revolving credit facility to $350.0 million, subject to a borrowing base calculation, extended the maturity date from May 23, 2023 to May 27, 2027 and-replaced LIBOR with Term SOFR as the benchmark interest rate and made certain conforming changes related thereto. As of May 27, 2022, the Company had $138,543 outstanding under the Revolving Line of Credit and stand-by commercial letters of credit of $1,967 under the terms of the Revolving Line of Credit.

After the date of the amendment, borrowings under the revolving credit facility bear interest based on either the base rate or Term SOFR, at our option, in each case plus an applicable margin. The base rate is the greatest of (1) the floor rate (as defined in the credit agreement as a rate of interest equal to 0.0%) (2) Wells Fargo’s prime rate, (3) the federal funds rate (as defined in the credit agreement) plus 0.50% or (4) the one-month Term SOFR (as defined in the credit agreement) plus 1.00%. The applicable margin for loans under the revolving credit facility, which varies based on the average daily availability, ranges from 0.25% to 0.50% per year for base rate loans and from 1.35% to 1.60% per year for Term SOFR loans. We are required to pay a commitment fee for the unused portion of the revolving credit facility, which will range from 0.20% to 0.225% per annum, depending on the average daily availability under the revolving credit facility.

Table of Contents

Each of the subsidiaries of Holdings continues to be a borrower under the revolving credit facility, and all obligations under the revolving credit facility are guaranteed by Holdings. All of the obligations under the revolving credit facility are secured by a lien on substantially all of Holdings’ tangible and intangible working capital assets and the tangible and intangible working capital assets of all of Holdings’ subsidiaries. The lien securing the obligations under the revolving credit facility is a first priority lien as to certain liquid assets, including cash, accounts receivable, deposit accounts and inventory. 

We may be required to make mandatory prepayments under the revolving credit facility in the event of a disposition of certain property or assets, in the event of receipt of certain insurance or condemnation proceeds, upon the issuance of certain debt or equity securities, upon the incurrence of certain indebtedness for borrowed money or upon the receipt of certain payments not received in the ordinary course of business.

Our revolving credit facility requires us to maintain a minimum availability at all times of not less than 10% of the gross borrowing base. In addition, the credit agreement governing our revolving credit facility contains customary affirmative and negative covenants, including covenants that limit our ability to incur, create or assume certain indebtedness, to create, incur or assume certain liens, to make certain investments, to make sales, transfers and dispositions of certain property and to undergo certain fundamental changes, including certain mergers, liquidations and consolidations. The credit agreement also contains customary events of default. As of April 30, 2022, we were in compliance with all covenants under the credit agreement governing our revolving credit facility.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

Our financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). In connection with the preparation of the financial statements, we are required to make assumptions, make estimates and apply judgment that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue, expenses and the related disclosures. We base our assumptions, estimates and judgments on historical experience, current trends and other factors that we believe to be relevant at the time the condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared. On a regular basis, we review the accounting policies, assumptions, estimates and judgments to ensure that our financial statements are presented fairly and in accordance with GAAP. However, because future events and their effects cannot be determined with certainty, actual results could differ from our assumptions and estimates, and such differences could be material.

There have been no significant changes to our critical accounting policies as described in our Fiscal 2021 Form 10-K.

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

We are not party to any off balance sheet arrangements.

Non-GAAP Measures

In evaluating our business, we use Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin as supplemental measures of our operating performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income plus interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, pre-opening expenses, and other gains, losses and expenses that we do not believe are indicative of our ongoing expenses. Adjusted EBITDA excludes pre-opening expenses because we do not believe these expenses are indicative of the underlying operating performance of our stores. The amount and timing of pre-opening expenses are dependent on, among other things, the size of new stores opened and the number of new stores opened during any given period. Adjusted EBITDA margin means, for any period, the Adjusted EBITDA for that period divided by the net sales for that period. We consider Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin important supplemental measures of our operating performance and believe they are frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. Other companies in our industry, however, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin differently than we do. Management also uses Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin as additional measurement tools for purposes of business decision-making, including evaluating store performance, developing budgets and managing expenditures. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin allow investors to evaluate our operating performance and compare our results of operations from period to period on a consistent basis by excluding items that management does not believe are indicative of our core operating performance.

Adjusted EBITDA is not defined under GAAP and is not a measure of operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and when assessing our operating performance, you should not consider Adjusted EBITDA in isolation or as a substitute for net income or other condensed consolidated statement of operations data prepared in accordance with GAAP. Some of these limitations include, but are not limited to:

Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
Adjusted EBITDA may be defined differently by other companies, and, therefore, it may not be directly comparable to the results of other companies in our industry;
Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on our debt; and
Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect income taxes or the cash requirements for any tax payments.

The following table presents a reconciliation of net income, the most directly comparable financial measure presented in accordance with GAAP, to Adjusted EBITDA for the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022 and May 1, 2021.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

Our principal exposure to market risk relates to changes in interest rates. Our revolving credit facility and term loan carry floating interest rates that are tied to LIBOR, the federal funds rate and the prime rate, and, therefore, our income and cash flows will be exposed to changes in interest rates to the extent that we do not have effective hedging arrangements in place. We historically have not used interest rate swap agreements to hedge the variable cash flows

associated with the interest on our credit facilities. Based on a sensitivity analysis at April 30, 2022, assuming the amount outstanding under our revolving credit facility would be outstanding for a full year, a 100 basis point increase in interest rates would have increased our interest expense by $1.1 million. We do not expect that the change in interest rates as a result of the amendment to our credit agreement entered into after April 30, 2022 will materially increase our interest rates. We do not use derivative financial instruments for speculative or trading purposes. However, this does not preclude our adoption of specific hedging strategies in the future.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and to ensure that information required to be disclosed is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow for timely decisions regarding required disclosures. Our management has evaluated, under the supervision and with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act), as of the end of the period covered by this Report. Based on that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of April 30, 2022.

Inherent Limitations in Effectiveness of Controls

Our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures, or our internal controls, will prevent all error and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within the company have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake or fraud. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by individuals or groups of persons or by an unauthorized override of the controls. Accordingly, because of the inherent limitations in our control system, misstatements in our public reports due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
