PITTSBURGH, Nov. 18: Dick's Sporting Goods, Inc. (NYSE:DKS) today reported sales and earnings results for the third quarter ended November 1, 2003.

Net income for the third quarter ended November 1, 2003 increased 68% to $4.7

million and earnings per share increased 29% to $0.18 per diluted share as compared

to net income of $2.8 million and earnings per share of $0.14 per diluted share for

the quarter ended November 2, 2002. Total sales for the quarter increased 16% to

$338.2 million. Comparable store sales increased 2.5% compared to a 5.1% comparable

store sales increase in the prior year. Net income increased 62% and earnings per share increased 38% compared to pro-forma

net income of $2.9 million or $0.13 per diluted share in the third quarter of last

year. Prior period pro-forma results include a reduction of interest expense and an

increase in diluted shares as if the Company had consummated its initial public

offering at the beginning of the third quarter last year rather than on the October

15, 2002 effective date. No pro-forma adjustments have been made to the current

quarter earnings. The Company noted that the following were included in this year's third quarter

results: - Net income included $1.3 million of non-cash, after-tax expense related

to the closing of two women's apparel concept test stores.

- Net income also included an after-tax gain of $1.4 million resulting

from the sale of a portion of the Company's non-cash investment in its

third party internet commerce provider. Excluding these items, net income for the third quarter would have been $4.6

million, while earnings per share would have remained unchanged at the reported

$0.18 per diluted share. "The associates at Dick's continued to execute in the third quarter as evidenced by

delivering a 2.5% comp sales gain despite a difficult comparison while opening 11

new stores during the quarter," said Edward W. Stack, Chairman and CEO.

"Additionally we're building for the future by adding to an already strong

management team. Joining us are Bill Newlin, EVP & Chief Administrative Officer,

Jerel Hollens, SVP - Supply Chain and Denny Feldman, VP - GMM Lodge & Bikes." Third Quarter Store Openings During the third quarter, the Company opened 11 new stores. Five of these stores

were in new markets: Watertown, NY; Plattsburgh, NY; Waterford, CT; Roanoke, VA;

and Charlottesville, VA. Six of the stores opened were in existing markets:

Garner, NC (the fifth store in the Raleigh/Durham market); Short Pump, VA (the third

store in the Richmond market); Manassas, VA and Waldorf, MD (the second and third

stores in the Washington, D.C. market); Millbury, MA (the second store in the

Worcester market); and Smithfield, RI (the third store in the Providence market).

As of November 1, 2003, the Company operated 162 stores in 27 states. Year-to-date Results Net income for the 39 weeks ended November 1, 2003 increased 40% to $26.8 million

and earnings per share increased 10% to $1.08 per diluted share as compared to net

income of $19.2 million and earnings per share of $0.98 per diluted share for the 39

weeks ended November 2, 2002. Total sales for the 39 weeks ended November 1, 2003

increased 14% to $996.4 million. Comparable store sales increased 1.0%. Net income increased 37% and earnings per share increased 23% compared to pro-forma

net income of $19.6 million or $0.88 per diluted share for the 39 weeks ended

November 2, 2002. Prior period pro-forma results include a reduction of interest

expense and an increase in diluted shares as if the Company had consummated its

initial public offering at the beginning of the first quarter last year rather than

on the October 15, 2002 effective date. Fourth Quarter and Full Year Outlook The Company's current outlook for the full year and fourth quarter of 2003 is based

on current expectations and includes "forward-looking statements" within the meaning

of Section 27A of the Securities Act and Section 21E of the Exchange Act as

described later in this release. Although the Company believes that comments

reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, it can give no

assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. Fourth Quarter 2003 - Based on an estimated 25.8 million fully-diluted shares outstanding,

EPS for the fourth quarter is expected to be $0.91 - 0.92 per diluted

share, an 11 - 12% increase over the prior year's fourth quarter EPS of

$0.82. The prior year's fourth quarter included a non-cash after-tax

charge of $1.4 million, or $0.06 per diluted share. Excluding last

year's charge, EPS is expected to increase 3 - 5%. - Net income is expected to be $23.5 - 23.7 million, compared to last

year's net income of $19.1 million in the fourth quarter, an increase

of 23 - 24%. Excluding the charge in the prior year's fourth quarter,

net income is expected to increase 15 - 16%. - The Company opened its last store for the year in November (Allentown,

PA), bringing the total for the year to 22 stores. - Comparable store sales are expected to increase 1-2%. Full Year 2003 The Company increased guidance for the full year. - Based on an estimated 25.2 million fully-diluted shares outstanding,

the Company is raising its earlier guidance from $1.95 and now expects

to report EPS for the full year of $1.99 - 2.00 per diluted share,

compared to pro-forma EPS of $1.72 in the prior year (or $1.87 on a

GAAP basis) and $1.78 excluding the non-cash charge taken in last

year's fourth quarter. - Net income is expected to be $50.2 - $50.4 million, compared to last

year's pro-forma net income of $38.6 million (or $38.3 million on a

GAAP basis) and $40.0 million excluding the non-cash charge taken in

the fourth quarter. - Comparable store sales are expected to increase approximately 1-2%. Conference Call Info

Regulation G Reconciliations The Company believes the use of pro-forma results for prior periods

provides a more meaningful comparison to the current period results due to

the significant increase in share count since October 15, 2002 when the

Company completed its initial public offering, and the related reduction

in interest expense due to the application of the net proceeds thereof.

The Company believes the use of adjusted net income for the current period

provides a further understanding as compared to the prior period results

due to the current period containing non-cash expenses related to the

closing of two concept stores associated with a women's apparel store

test, and also containing a gain from the sale of a portion of the

Company's non-cash investment in its third party internet commerce

provider. The reconciliation of adjusted net income and adjusted diluted
