Quarter Performance: In Q2FY24, net sales increased by 3.9% to $9.8bn, compared to $9.43bn in Q2FY23. The net sales increase was primarily driven by positive sales contributions from new stores, partially offset by the slight decline in same-store sales and the impact of store closures.

Guidance: For FY24, DG expects its net sales growth in the range of approximately 1.3% to 3.3%. Diluted EPS growth is expected to be in the range of approximately $7.10 to $8.30 or a decline of 34% to 22% and the tax rate for FY24 is expected to be 22.5%. Capital expenditures, including those related to investments in the Company’s strategic initiatives, are expected in the range of $1.6bn to $1.7bn.


DG continued to experience both higher shrink and inventory damages in H1FY24. In Q2FY24, gross profit decreased by 126bps to 31.1%, compared to 32.3% in Q2FY23, primarily reflecting lower inventory markups and increased shrink, markdowns, and inventory damages.
