Cabela's Inc. Reports Strong Second Quarter 2012 Results

The Company realized significant increases in Retail segment contribution margin. For the quarter, Retail segment operating margin increased 230 basis points to 18.5%, a new second quarter record. This represents the 13th consecutive quarterly increase in Retail segment contribution margin.

"These strong results led to another quarter of improvement in return on invested capital," Millner said. "Return on invested capital improved 190 basis points. Key operational improvements and the strong performance of our new stores give us confidence in our ability to increase return on capital going forward."

The Cabela's CLUB Visa program also posted very strong results in the quarter. For the quarter, net charge-offs decreased 48 basis points to 1.86% compared to 2.34% in the prior year quarter. This is the lowest level of net charge-offs in five years. Primarily due to higher interest and fee income and reduced interest expense, Financial Services revenue increased 12.8% in the quarter to $79.3 million.

"We are optimistic about our prospects for the remainder of 2012 and 2013," Millner said. "Our strategies are working well and our next-generation stores are achieving superior results. Accordingly, we believe that our full year 2012 earnings per share should exceed current estimates by 1-3%."
