NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements contained in this report are unaudited. In the opinion of management, the condensed consolidated financial statements include all normal, recurring adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the interim periods of the fiscal year ending February 1, 2020 and of the fiscal year ended February 2, 2019. Certain items included in these statements are based on management’s estimates. Actual results may differ from those estimates. The results of operations for any interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results expected for the year. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements contained in Foot Locker, Inc.’s (the “Company”) Form 10‑K for the year ended February 2, 2019, as filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 2, 2019.

Other than the changes to the Leases policies as a result of the recently adopted accounting standards discussed below, there were no significant changes to the policies disclosed in Note 1, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies of our Annual Report on Form 10‑K for the year ended February 2, 2019.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). This ASU requires lessees to recognize a lease liability, on a discounted basis, and a right-of-use asset for substantially all leases, as well as additional disclosures regarding leasing arrangements. In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-11, Leases (Topic 842): Targeted improvements, which provides an optional transition method of applying the new lease standard. Topic 842 can be applied using either a modified retrospective approach at the beginning of the earliest period presented, or as permitted by ASU 2018-11, at the beginning of the period in which it is adopted.

The Company adopted Topic 842 on February 3, 2019 (the “effective date”) using the optional transition method, which applies Topic 842 at the beginning of the period in which it is adopted. Prior period amounts have not been adjusted in connection with the adoption of this standard. The Company elected the package of practical expedients under the new standard, which permits companies to not reassess lease classification, lease identification, or initial direct costs for existing or expired leases prior to the effective date. We have lease agreements with non-lease components that relate to the lease components. The Company elected the practical expedient to account for non-lease components and the lease components to which they relate, as a single lease component for all classes of underlying assets. Also, the Company elected to keep short-term leases with an initial term of twelve months or less off the balance sheet.

Upon adoption of this new standard, the Company recorded right-of-use assets and lease obligations on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet for our operating leases of $3,148 million and $3,422 million, respectively, as of February 3, 2019. As part of adopting the standard, previously recognized liabilities for deferred rent and lease incentives were reclassified as a component of the right-of-use assets. Additionally upon adoption, we evaluated right-to-use assets for impairment and determined that approximately $29 million of impairment was required related to newly recognized right-to-use assets that would have been impaired in previous periods. This impairment of the right-to-use asset as of February 3, 2019 was recorded, net of related income tax effects, as a $26 million reduction of beginning retained earnings. The standard did not significantly affect our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income, Comprehensive Income, or Cash Flows.

Other recently issued accounting pronouncements did not, or are not believed by management to, have a material effect on the Company’s present or future consolidated financial statements.

2. Revenue

Store revenue is recognized at the point of sale and includes merchandise, net of returns, and excludes taxes. Revenue from layaway sales is recognized when the customer receives the product, rather than when the initial deposit is paid. Revenue for merchandise that is shipped to our customers from our distribution centers and stores is recognized upon shipment date.

Total revenue recognized includes shipping and handling fees. We have determined that control of the promised good is passed to the customer upon shipment date since the customer has legal title, the rewards of ownership, and has paid for the merchandise as of the shipment date. Shipping and handling is accounted for as a fulfillment activity. The Company accrues the cost and recognized revenue for these activities upon shipment date.

3. Segment Information

The Company has integrated all available shopping channels including stores, websites, apps, social channels, and catalogs. Store sales are primarily fulfilled from the store’s inventory but may also be shipped from any of our distribution centers or from a different store location if an item is not available at the original store. Direct-to-customer orders are primarily shipped to our customers through our distribution centers but may also be shipped from any store or a combination of our distribution centers and stores depending on the availability of particular items.

Our operating segments are identified according to how our business activities are managed and evaluated by our chief operating decision maker, our CEO. During 2018, the Company expanded into Asia and launched our digital channels across Singapore, Hong Kong, and Malaysia. In addition, we entered China through a limited offering in partnership with Tmall (a Chinese-language platform for business-to-consumer online retail). During the first quarter of 2019, the Company changed its organizational and internal reporting structure in order to support an accelerated growth strategy for the region. We opened an Asian headquarters in Singapore and realigned our organization into three distinct geographic regions: Europe, Middle East and Africa (“EMEA”), Asia Pacific, and North America.

In light of these changes, the Company has re-evaluated its operating segments. The Company has determined that it has three operating segments, North America, EMEA, and Asia Pacific. Our North America operating segment includes the results of the following banners operating in the U.S. and Canada: Foot Locker, Kids Foot Locker, Lady Foot Locker, Champs Sports, Footaction, and SIX:02, including each of their related e-commerce businesses, as well as our Eastbay business that includes internet, catalog, and team sales. Our EMEA operating segment includes the results of the following banners operating in Europe: Foot Locker, Runners Point, Sidestep, and Kids Foot Locker, including each of their related e-commerce businesses. Our Asia Pacific operating segment includes the results of Foot Locker and Kids Foot Locker and the related e-commerce businesses operating in Australia, New Zealand, and Asia. We have further aggregated these operating segments into one reportable segment based upon their shared customer base and similar economic characteristics.

The Company evaluates performance based on several factors, of which the primary financial measure is the banner’s financial results referred to as division profit. Division profit reflects income before income taxes, pension litigation charges, corporate expense, non-operating income, and net interest income.

3. Segment Information – (continued)

(1)

The Company recorded pre-tax charges of $1 million and $12 million for the quarters ended May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018, respectively, related to a pension litigation matter and the related plan reformation. The charge in the current period reflects professional fees in connection with the plan reformation.  The prior year charge reflected adjustments to the value of the judgment and interest that continued to accrue, as required by the provisions of the required plan reformation.

(2)

Corporate expense consists of unallocated selling, general and administrative expenses as well as depreciation and amortization related to the Company’s corporate headquarters, centrally managed departments, unallocated insurance and benefit programs, certain foreign exchange transaction gains and losses, and other items.

During 2017 in connection with the pension litigation matter, the Company deposited $150 million in a qualified settlement fund.  At May 5, 2018, this amount was classified as part of non-current assets.  During 2018 and in March 2019, the Company used substantially all of the qualified settlement fund to pay class counsel fees and to make a contribution to the pension plan.

Other amounts included in restricted cash primarily relate to amounts held in escrow in connection with various leasing arrangements in Europe and deposits held in insurance trusts in order to satisfy the requirement to collateralize part of the self-insured workers’ compensation and liability claims.

The Company has elected to present book overdrafts, representing checks issued but still outstanding in excess of bank balances, as part of accounts payable.

5. Goodwill

Annually during the first quarter, or more frequently if impairment indicators arise, the Company reviews goodwill and intangible assets with indefinite lives for impairment.

In light of the change in our organizational and internal reporting structure in the first quarter of 2019, we have reassessed our reporting units and have determined that the collective omni-channel banners in North America, EMEA, and Asia Pacific are the three reporting units at which goodwill is tested.

Accordingly, goodwill was re-allocated between the affected reporting units based on their relative fair values. As required, we conducted the annual impairment review both before and after this change. Neither review resulted in the recognition of impairment, as the fair value of each reporting unit exceeded its carrying value.

7. Leases

The Company is obligated under operating leases for almost all of its store properties. In addition, the Company leases certain warehouse distribution centers. Operating lease periods generally range from 5 to 10 years and most store leases contain rent escalation provisions. Leases with an initial term of 12 months or less are not recorded on the balance sheet. We recognize lease expense for these leases on a straight-line basis over the lease term. For leases beginning in 2019 and later, the Company will combine lease components (e.g. rental payments) and non-lease components (e.g. common area maintenance costs and utilities).

Right-of-use assets and liabilities are recognized at the commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term for those arrangements where there is an identified asset and the contract conveys the right to control its use.

FOOT LOCKER, INC.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

7. Leases – (continued)

Since the rates implicit in the leases are not readily determinable, the Company uses its incremental borrowing rates based on the remaining lease term to determine the present value of future lease payments. The Company's incremental borrowing rate for a lease is the rate of interest it would have to pay on a collateralized basis to borrow an amount equal to the lease payments under similar terms. 

Some of the store leases contain renewal options with varying terms and conditions. The Company’s lease term includes options to extend or terminate a lease only when it is reasonably certain that it will exercise that option.

Certain leases provide for variable lease costs, which primarily include rent payments based on a percentage of store sales, common area maintenance costs and taxes.

The fair values of the Company’s equity investments are determined by using quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active and therefore are classified as Level 2. The fair value of the auction rate security is determined by using quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets and accordingly is classified as a Level 2 instrument. The Company’s derivative financial instruments are valued using market-based inputs to valuation models. These valuation models require a variety of inputs, including contractual terms, market prices, yield curves, and measures of volatility and therefore are classified as Level 2 instruments.

There were no transfers into or out of Level 1, Level 2, or Level 3 assets and liabilities for any of the periods presented.

The carrying value and estimated fair value of long-term debt were as follows:

The fair value of long-term debt is determined by using model-derived valuations in which all significant inputs or significant value drivers are observable in active markets and therefore are classified as Level 2. The carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, and other current receivables and payables approximate their fair value.

10. Earnings Per Share

The Company accounts for and discloses earnings per share using the treasury stock method. Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing net income for the period by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding at the end of the period. Restricted stock awards, which contain non-forfeitable rights to dividends, are considered participating securities and are included in the calculation of basic earnings per share. Diluted earnings per share reflects the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period used in the basic earnings per share computation plus dilutive common stock equivalents.

These shares relate to restricted stock units issued in connection with the Company’s long-term incentive program.

11. Pension and Postretirement Plans

The Company has defined benefit pension plans covering certain of its North American employees, which are funded in accordance with the provisions of the laws where the plans are in effect. The Company also has a defined benefit pension plan covering certain employees of the Runners Point Group. In addition to providing pension benefits, the Company sponsors postretirement medical and life insurance plans, which are available to most of its retired U.S. employees. These medical and life insurance plans are contributory and are not funded.

The following are the components of net periodic pension benefit cost and net periodic postretirement benefit income. Service cost is recognized as part of SG&A expense, while the remaining pension and postretirement expense components are recognized as part of other income.

Restricted Stock and Restricted Stock Units

12. Share-Based Compensation – (continued)

Each RSU represents the right to receive one share of the Company’s common stock provided that the performance and vesting conditions are satisfied. There were no outstanding restricted stock awards as of May 4, 2019 and an insignificant number of restricted stock awards were outstanding as May 5, 2018.

Generally, awards fully vest after the passage of time, typically three years. However, RSU awards made in connection with the Company’s performance-based long-term incentive program are earned after the attainment of certain performance metrics and vest after the passage of time. Restricted stock is considered outstanding at the time of grant and the holders have voting rights. Dividends are paid to holders of restricted stock that vest with the passage of time. With regard to performance-based restricted stock, dividends will be accumulated and paid after the performance criteria are met. No dividends are paid or accumulated on any RSU awards. Compensation expense is recognized using the market value at the date of grant and is amortized over the vesting period, provided the recipient continues to be employed by the Company.

Restricted stock and RSU activity for the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019 is summarized as follows:

13. Legal Proceedings

Legal proceedings pending against the Company or its consolidated subsidiaries consist of ordinary, routine litigation, including administrative proceedings, incidental to the business of the Company or businesses that have been sold or discontinued by the Company in past years. These legal proceedings include commercial, intellectual property, customer, environmental, and employment-related claims, including a purported class action in New York alleging failure to pay for all hours worked by employees. Additionally, the Company and certain officers of the Company are defendants in a purported securities law class action in New York. The directors and certain officers of the Company are also defendants in related derivative actions.

Management does not believe that the outcome of any such legal proceedings pending against the Company or its consolidated subsidiaries, as described above, would have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated financial position, liquidity, or results of operations, taken as a whole, based upon current knowledge and taking into consideration current accruals. Litigation is inherently unpredictable. Judgments could be rendered or settlements made that could adversely affect the Company’s operating results or cash flows in a particular period.

Disclosure Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This report contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Other than statements of historical facts, all statements which address activities, events, or developments that the Company anticipates will or may occur in the future, including, but not limited to, such things as future capital expenditures, expansion, strategic plans, financial objectives, dividend payments, stock repurchases, growth of the Company’s business and operations, including future cash flows, revenues, and earnings, and other such matters, are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on many assumptions and factors which are detailed in the Company’s filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

These forward-looking statements are based largely on our expectations and judgments and are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, many of which are unforeseeable and beyond our control. For additional discussion on risks and uncertainties that may affect forward-looking statements, see “Risk Factors” disclosed in the 2018 Annual Report on Form 10‑K.

Business Overview

Foot Locker, Inc., through its subsidiaries, is one of the largest athletic footwear and apparel retailers in the world, operating 3,201 stores in 27 countries. The Foot Locker brand is one of the most widely recognized names in the markets in which we operate, epitomizing premium quality for the active lifestyle customer. We operate websites and mobile apps, aligned with the brand names of our store banners. Our sites offer some of the largest online selections of athletically inspired shoes and apparel, while providing a seamless link between e-commerce and physical stores. We also operate the websites for eastbay.com, final-score.com, and eastbayteamsales.com.

With its various marketing channels and experiences across North America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand, the Company's purpose is to inspire and empower youth culture around the world, by fueling a shared passion for self-expression and creating unrivaled experiences at the heart of the sport and sneaker communities.  

Store Count

At May 4, 2019, we operated 3,201 stores as compared with 3,221 and 3,284 stores at February 2, 2019 and May 5, 2018, respectively.

Franchise Operations

A total of 129 franchised stores were operating at May 4, 2019, as compared with 122 and 116 stores at February 2, 2019 and May 5, 2018, respectively. Revenue from the franchised stores was not significant for any of the periods presented. These stores are not included in the operating store count above.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to reporting the Company's financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), the Company reports certain financial results that differ from what is reported under GAAP. We have presented certain financial measures identified as non-GAAP, such as sales changes excluding foreign currency fluctuations, adjusted income before income taxes, adjusted net income, and adjusted diluted earnings per share.

20

We present certain amounts as excluding the effects of foreign currency fluctuations, which are also considered non-GAAP measures. Where amounts are expressed as excluding the effects of foreign currency fluctuations, such changes are determined by translating all amounts in both years using the prior-year average foreign exchange rates.  Presenting amounts on a constant currency basis is useful to investors because it enables them to better understand the changes in our business that are not related to currency movements.

These non-GAAP measures are presented because we believe they assist investors in comparing our performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core business or affect comparability. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are useful in assessing our progress in achieving our long-term financial objectives.

The various non-GAAP adjustments are summarized in the tables below.  We estimate the tax effect of all non-GAAP adjustments by applying a marginal tax rate to each of the respective items.

The non-GAAP financial information is provided in addition to, and not as an alternative to, our reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Presented below is a reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP results for the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019 and May 5, 2018, respectively.

During the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019, the Company recorded pre-tax charges of $1 million in connection with its U.S. retirement plan litigation and required plan reformation. These charges represented professional fees. During the thirteen weeks ended May 5, 2018, the Company recorded a charge related to the same litigation of $12 million, $9 million after-tax or $0.07 per share. The prior year charge represented $11 million related to the estimated cost of the reformation, related interest, and $1 million in professional fees. 

Segment Reporting

We identify our operating segments according to how our business activities are managed and evaluated by our chief operating decision maker, our CEO.

21

Beginning in 2018, the Company changed its organizational and internal reporting structure in order to execute our omni-channel strategy. This change resulted in the combination of our stores and direct-to-customer financial results.

Effective as of 2019, the Company has determined that it has three operating segments, North America, EMEA, and Asia Pacific. Our North America operating segment includes the results of the following banners operating in the U.S. and Canada: Foot Locker, Kids Foot Locker, Lady Foot Locker, Champs Sports, Footaction, and SIX:02, including each of their related e-commerce businesses, as well as our Eastbay business that includes internet, catalog, and team sales. Our EMEA operating segment includes the results of the following banners operating in Europe: Foot Locker, Runners Point, Sidestep, and Kids Foot Locker, including each of their related e-commerce businesses. Our Asia Pacific operating segment includes the results of Foot Locker and Kids Foot Locker and the related e-commerce businesses operating in Australia, New Zealand, and Asia. We have further aggregated these operating segments into one reportable segment based upon their shared customer base and similar economic characteristics. Please see Item 1. “Financial Statements,” Note 3, Segment Information for further information on this change.

Results of Operations

We evaluate performance based on several factors, of which the primary financial measure is the banner’s financial results referred to as division profit. Division profit reflects income before income taxes, pension litigation charge, corporate expense, non-operating income, and net interest income. The following table summarizes our results:

Corporate expense consists of unallocated selling, general and administrative expenses as well as depreciation and amortization related to the Company’s corporate headquarters, centrally managed departments, unallocated insurance and benefit programs, certain foreign exchange transaction gains and losses, and other items.

(3)

Other income includes non-operating items, franchise royalty income, changes in fair value, premiums paid, realized gains and losses associated with foreign currency option contracts, changes in the market value of our available-for-sale, and net benefit expense related to our pension and postretirement programs excluding the service cost component.

Sales

All references to comparable-store sales for a given period relate to sales of stores that were open at the period-end and had been open for more than one year. The computation of consolidated comparable sales also includes our direct-to-customer channel. Stores opened or closed during the period are not included in the comparable-store base; however, stores closed temporarily for relocation or remodeling are included. Computations exclude the effect of foreign currency fluctuations.

Sales increased by $53 million, or 2.6 percent, to $2,078 million for the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019, from $2,025 million for the thirteen weeks ended May 5, 2018. Excluding the effect of foreign currency fluctuations, total sales increased by 4.7 percent for the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019.  

Total comparable sales increased by 4.6 percent for the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019. Overall, both channels generated a comparable sales gain for the period. This result was led by the growth in our direct-to-customers channel, which increased by 14.8 percent for the quarter. The improvement in our direct-to-customers channel reflecting continued positive customer sentiment as a result of our various e-commerce enhancements. Our stores channel sales also performed well and increased by 2.9 percent for the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019.  

The comparable sales result for the first quarter was led by our EMEA operating segment, where both stores and e-commerce garnered sales gains. Europe’s sales increase was primarily related to growth in our stores, coupled with growth in e-commerce penetration. In North America, Champs Sports drove the increase.  Footaction and Kids Foot Locker experienced lower sales in the first quarter of 2019, as compared with the corresponding prior-year period. The decline in Footaction’s sales primarily reflected the lack of product availability of certain key men’s footwear styles. Kids Foot Locker’s decline was primarily related to declines in sales of apparel. Asia Pacific continued to increase both from the store expansion in Asia and increased sales from our operations in Australia which was primarily the result of growth in our e-commerce business.

From a product perspective for the combined channels, the increase in comparable sales was across both our footwear and apparel categories. The increase was mainly the result of increased sales of footwear, which reflected increases in all wearer segments. Footwear sales were led by sales of women’s court and casual footwear styles. Kids footwear sales increased and primarily reflected strength in running styles. Men’s footwear sales reflected increases in casual and running styles, while sales of basketball styles were relatively flat. The increase in apparel sales was primarily related to the men’s business as both women’s and kid’s apparel sales declined for the quarter.

Gross margin is calculated as sales minus cost of sales. Cost of sales includes: the cost of merchandise, freight, distribution costs including related depreciation expense, shipping and handling, occupancy and buyers’ compensation. Occupancy costs include rent, common area maintenance charges, real estate taxes, general maintenance, and utilities.

The gross margin rate increased by 30 basis points for the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019 as compared with the corresponding prior-year period. The merchandise margin rate decline reflected a higher proportion of direct-to-customer sales, which bear a higher freight cost. The occupancy and buyers’ compensation expense rate decreased for the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019, which was primarily the result of higher sales during the quarter as compared with a relatively fixed rent cost.

The higher SG&A expense rate for the quarter reflected higher wages, higher incentive compensation expense, and an increase in costs incurred in connection with our ongoing investment in various technology and infrastructure projects. Corporate expense (a component of SG&A) increased during the quarter, also reflecting the same factors noted previously and higher share-based compensation that is tied to the Company’s performance.  

A benefit of $5 million was recorded in the first quarter of 2018 relating to insurance recoveries for damaged inventory and fixed assets for losses incurred during Hurricane Maria in 2017.

The Company’s interim provision for income taxes is measured using an annual effective tax rate, adjusted for discrete items that occur within the periods presented.

The Company regularly assesses the adequacy of the Company’s provisions for income tax contingencies in accordance with applicable authoritative guidance on accounting for income taxes. As a result, the Company

25

may adjust the reserves for unrecognized tax benefits considering new facts and developments, such as changes to interpretations of relevant tax law, assessments from taxing authorities, settlements with taxing authorities, and lapses of statutes of limitation. The changes in the tax reserves were not significant for any of the periods presented.

During the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019, the Company recognized a tax benefit of $3 million due to an adjustment to a foreign tax credit valuation allowance. Excluding the valuation allowance adjustment, the effective tax rate for the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019 increased as compared with the corresponding prior-year period, due primarily to higher taxes on foreign earnings.

The Company currently expects its full-year tax rate to approximate 27.5 percent excluding the effect of any nonrecurring items that may occur. The actual tax rate will vary depending on the level and mix of income earned in the various jurisdictions in which we operate.

Net Income

For the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019, net income increased by $7 million, or 4.2 percent, and diluted earnings per share increased by 10.1 percent to $1.52 per share, as compared with the corresponding prior-year period. The increase in diluted earnings per share reflected an increase in net income coupled with a reduction in the number of shares outstanding due to the shares repurchased under the Company’s share repurchase program.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Liquidity

Our primary source of liquidity continues to be cash flow from operations, while the principal uses of cash are to: fund inventory and other working capital requirements; finance capital expenditures related to store openings, store remodelings, internet and mobile sites, information systems, and other support facilities; make retirement plan contributions, quarterly dividend payments, and interest payments; and fund other cash requirements to support the development of our short-term and long-term operating strategies. We generally finance real estate with operating leases. We believe our cash, cash equivalents, and future cash flow from operations will be adequate to fund these requirements.

The Company may also from time to time repurchase its common stock or seek to retire or purchase outstanding debt through open market purchases, privately negotiated transactions, or otherwise. Share repurchases and retirement of debt, if any, will depend on prevailing market conditions, liquidity requirements, contractual restrictions, strategic considerations, and other factors. The amounts involved may be material. As of May 4, 2019, all of $1.2 billion remained available under the Company’s current 3-year share repurchase program. Through June 11, 2019, the Company has repurchased $112 million or 2.7 million shares after the end of the first quarter.

Any material adverse change in customer demand, fashion trends, competitive market forces, or customer acceptance of our merchandise mix and retail locations, uncertainties related to the effect of competitive products and pricing, our reliance on a few key vendors for a significant portion of our merchandise purchases and risks associated with global product sourcing, economic conditions worldwide, the effects of currency fluctuations, as well as other factors listed under the heading “Disclosure Regarding Forward-Looking Statements,” could affect our ability to continue to fund our needs from business operations.

The amount provided by operating activities reflects net income adjusted for non-cash items and working capital changes. Adjustments to net income for non-cash items include depreciation and amortization, and share-based compensation expense.

The decrease in cash provided by operating activities, compared with the same period of last year, reflected an increase in net income offset by lower net inflows associated with changes in working capital and a pension contribution. During the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019, we contributed $55 million to our U.S. qualified pension plan primarily representing the funds available in the qualified settlement fund established in connection with our pension litigation matter.

Capital expenditures decreased for the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019 by $19 million as compared with the corresponding prior-year period. This represented a decrease in spending on store projects partially offset by an increase related to technology projects. The Company’s full-year capital spending is expected to be approximately $272 million, which includes $172 million related to the remodeling or relocation of approximately 180 existing stores and the opening of approximately 80 new stores, as well as $100 million for the development of information systems, websites, and infrastructure, including supply chain initiatives.

Additionally, investing activities for the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019 included $45 million in minority investments. Investing outflows for the thirteen weeks ended May 5, 2018 were partially offset by the receipt of insurance proceeds of $1 million for fixed assets from an insurance claim relating to Hurricane Maria.

awards. Offsetting the amounts above were proceeds received from the issuance of common stock in connection with employee stock programs of $4 million for the thirteen weeks ended May 4, 2019. 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

There have been no significant changes to our critical accounting policies and estimates from the information provided in Item 7, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” included in the Annual Report on Form 10‑K for the fiscal year ended February 2, 2019.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

Descriptions of the recently issued and adopted accounting principles are included in Item 1. “Financial Statements” in Note 1, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

During the quarter, the Company’s management performed an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”), of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as that term is defined in Rules 13a‑15(e) and 15d‑15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)). Based on that evaluation, the Company’s CEO and CFO concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective to ensure that information relating to the Company that is required to be disclosed in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC rules and forms, and is accumulated and communicated to management, including the CEO and CFO, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

We are currently migrating our point-of-sale software to a new platform. Approximately 2,300 stores have been converted to the new software platform as of May 4, 2019, and we currently expect to complete the implementation during the second half of 2019. In connection with this implementation and resulting business process changes, we may make changes to the design and operation of our internal control over financial reporting.

Additionally, during the fourth quarter of 2018 the Company implemented a new lease accounting system in advance of the adoption of the new leasing standard that was effective the first quarter of 2019. We revised our controls in connection with this adoption and will further refine business processes and make changes to the design and implementation of our internal control in connection with the new standard.

During the quarter ended May 4, 2019, there were no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting, other than the implementation of new point-of-sale software and lease accounting system noted above, (as defined in Rules 13a‑15(f) of the Exchange Act) that materially affected or are reasonably likely to affect the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
