Big 5 Sporting Goods Corporation Announces Fiscal 2010 Third Quarter Results

Quarterly Cash Dividend

The Company's Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.05 per share of outstanding common stock, which will be paid on December 15, 2010 to stockholders of record as of December 1, 2010.

Guidance

For the fiscal 2010 fourth quarter, the Company expects same store sales in the positive low single-digit range and earnings per diluted share in the range of $0.25 to $0.33. As a result of the fiscal year calendar, the fiscal 2009 fourth quarter included 14 weeks and the fiscal fourth quarter this year includes 13 weeks. The Company's same store sales guidance reflects comparable 13-week periods.

Store Openings

The Company opened three new stores during the third quarter of fiscal 2010, bringing its store count at the end of the quarter to 391 stores. The Company has opened two new stores during the fourth quarter to date, and anticipates opening an additional five new stores over the remainder of the fourth quarter. Three of the seven stores that are anticipated to open in the fourth quarter are part of relocations that are expected to result in existing stores closing in early 2011.  For the fiscal 2010 full year, the Company currently anticipates opening 11 new stores, plus four relocations. Of the four relocations, one replaced store has closed and three existing stores are currently scheduled to close in early 2011.
