After a disappointing second quarter, Hibbett, Inc. rebounded nicely with a strong end to its fiscal year.

The athletic-inspired fashion retailer reported net sales of $458.3 million during the fourth quarter — a 19.6% increase from the same period in the previous fiscal year.

It led to Hibbett posting a record $1.7 billion in net sales for the year.

CEO and president Mike Longo noted that the company was “especially pleased” with its e-commerce business, which increased comparable sales 21.4% in Q4 and 14% for the year.

On the other hand, brick-and-mortar sales increased 14.3% year over year for the quarter — but actually decreased 4.9% for the entire year.

Hibbett may have achieved the feat by cutting costs: Capital expenditures were $15.4 million for the quarter, compared to $27.3 million for the same quarter a year before.

Longo is expecting some challenges as the company turns its calendar.

“​​As we look ahead to Fiscal 2024, we believe there are several headwinds including inflation, higher interest rates and a more promotional retail environment,” he said in a statement.

Meanwhile, another company in the sporting goods space is not experiencing the same type of success.

Retail Ecommerce Ventures LLC — the owner of Modell’s Sporting Goods, as well as other companies like Pier 1 Imports and RadioShack — is reportedly seeking financing for a possible bankruptcy.
