Company Achieves Milestone of over 200 Garden Center Projects Completed and Announces Enhanced Mobile App Personalization for Pets

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., June 06, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tractor Supply Company (NASDAQ: TSCO), the largest rural lifestyle retailer in the United States, today provided an outlook for the second quarter ending June 25, 2022. The Company is providing this financial update in advance of presenting at Baird’s Global Consumer, Technology and Services Conference tomorrow morning and at its Annual Sales Meeting in early July 2022, attended by nearly 3,000 Tractor Supply Team Members.

While there is still a significant portion of the second quarter of fiscal 2022 ahead, Tractor Supply currently forecasts net sales growth of 8% and comparable store sales growth of 5% as compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Diluted earnings per share for the second quarter of fiscal 2022 is forecasted to be $3.48 or greater.

"Tractor Supply is on track to deliver record results in the second quarter on both sales and earnings. As we moved through April and the weather has normalized, we have experienced strong sales of our seasonal products. The strength of our needs-based, demand-driven business continues as the team is effectively managing inventory levels, inflationary costs, and pressures across the global supply chain. We believe we are well positioned to have a strong second quarter," said Hal Lawton, Tractor Supply’s President and Chief Executive Officer.

Lawton continued, "When our customers need solutions for their Out Here lifestyle, they think of Tractor Supply. We continue to look for ways to better serve our customers through an ever-expanding product offering like our Garden Centers or the personalization of how our customers interact with us digitally. We have successfully completed over 200 Garden Centers at our stores, and our customers’ early response has been very exciting. The upcoming addition of the ‘My Pet’ mobile app personalization will allow us to offer a differentiated digital shopping experience across the 3 million plus app downloads. These initiatives are great examples of how we are able to continue to capture growth opportunities ahead of us."

The Company’s presentation at the Baird Conference will be webcast at 7:55 a.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday, June 7, 2022 and can be accessed live or as an archived replay for 90 days at IR.TractorSupply.com. Hal Lawton, Chief Executive Officer, and Kurt Barton, Chief Financial Officer, will be presenting at the conference.

The Company will release its second quarter 2022 earnings news release before the market opens on Thursday, July 21, 2022. The Company will hold its second quarter 2022 earnings conference call that day at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time.
