Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (unaudited)

1. Accounting Policies

These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission applicable to interim financial statements. While these statements reflect all normal recurring adjustments that are, in the opinion of management, necessary for fair presentation of the results of the interim period, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by United States generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP) for complete financial statements. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statement disclosures in our most recent Form 10-K.

We use the same accounting policies in preparing quarterly and annual financial statements.

We operate as a single segment that is designed to enable guests to purchase products seamlessly in stores or through our digital channels. Nearly all of our revenues are generated in the U.S. The vast majority of our long-lived assets are located within the U.S.

Due to the seasonal nature of our business, quarterly revenues, expenses, earnings, and cash flows are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year.

2. Revenue

Merchandise sales represent the vast majority of our revenues. We also earn revenues from a variety of other sources, most notably credit card profit-sharing income from our arrangement with TD Bank Group (TD).

Merchandise sales — We record almost all retail store revenues at the point of sale. Digitally originated sales may include shipping revenue and are recorded upon delivery to the guest or upon guest pickup at the store. Sales are recognized net of expected returns, which we estimate using historical return patterns and our expectation of future returns. As of May 4, 2024, February 3, 2024, and April 29, 2023, the accrual for estimated returns was $198 million, $170 million, and $206 million, respectively.

Revenue from Target gift card sales is recognized upon gift card redemption, which is typically within one year of issuance.

These amounts exclude commercial paper, fair value hedge adjustments, and lease liabilities.

4. Supplier Finance Programs

We have arrangements with several financial institutions to act as our paying agents to certain vendors. The arrangements also permit the financial institutions to provide vendors with an option, at our vendors' sole discretion, to sell their receivables from Target to the financial institutions. A vendor’s election to receive early payment at a discounted amount from the financial institutions does not change the amount that we must remit to the financial institutions or our payment date, which is up to 120 days from the invoice date.

We do not pay any fees or pledge any security to these financial institutions under these arrangements. The arrangements can be terminated by either party with notice ranging up to 120 days.

Our outstanding vendor obligations eligible for early payment under these arrangements totaled $3.3 billion, $3.4 billion, and $3.3 billion as of May 4, 2024, February 3, 2024, and April 29, 2023, respectively, and are included within Accounts Payable on our Consolidated Statements of Financial Position. Our outstanding vendor obligations do not represent actual receivables sold by our vendors to the financial institutions, which have historically been lower.

5. Commercial Paper and Long-Term Debt

We obtain short-term financing from time to time under our commercial paper program. There was no commercial paper outstanding at any time during the three months ended May 4, 2024, For the three months ended April 29, 2023, the maximum amount outstanding was $90 million, and the average daily amount outstanding was $2 million, at a weighted average annual interest rate of 4.8 percent. As of April 29, 2023, $90 million was outstanding and is classified within Current Portion of Long-Term Debt and Other Borrowings on our Consolidated Statements of Financial Position.

6. Derivative Financial Instruments

Our derivative instruments consist of interest rate swaps used to mitigate interest rate risk. As a result, we have counterparty credit exposure to large global financial institutions, which we monitor on an ongoing basis. Note 3 to the Consolidated Financial Statements provides the fair value and classification of these instruments.

We were party to interest rate swaps with notional amounts totaling $2.45 billion as of May 4, 2024, February 3, 2024, and April 29, 2023. We pay a floating rate and receive a fixed rate under each of these agreements. All of the agreements are designated as fair value hedges, and all were considered to be perfectly effective under the shortcut method during the three months ended May 4, 2024 and April 29, 2023.

MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS
FINANCIAL SUMMARY
Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

Financial Summary

First quarter 2024 included the following notable items:

GAAP and adjusted diluted earnings per share were $2.03.
Total revenue was $24.5 billion, a decrease of 3.1 percent from the comparable prior-year period, reflecting a total sales decrease of 3.2 percent and a 3.9 percent increase in other revenue.
Comparable sales decreased 3.7 percent, reflecting a 1.9 percent decrease in both traffic and average transaction amount.
Comparable stores-originated sales declined 4.8 percent.
Comparable digitally-originated sales increased 1.4 percent.
Operating income of $1.3 billion was 2.4 percent lower than the comparable prior-year period.

Cash flow provided by operating activities was $1.1 billion for the three months ended May 4, 2024, compared with $1.3 billion for the three months ended April 29, 2023. The drivers of the operating cash flow decrease are described on page 20.

Note: Adjusted diluted earnings per share (Adjusted EPS), a non-GAAP metric, excludes the impact of certain items when applicable. However, there are no adjustments in either period presented. Management believes that Adjusted EPS is useful in providing period-to-period comparisons of the results of our operations. A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP measures is provided on page 18.

We report after-tax return on invested capital (ROIC) because we believe ROIC provides a meaningful measure of our capital allocation effectiveness over time. For the trailing twelve months ended May 4, 2024, after-tax ROIC was 15.4 percent, compared with 11.4 percent for the trailing twelve months ended April 29, 2023. The calculation of ROIC is provided on page 19.

Sales

Sales include all merchandise sales, net of expected returns, and our estimate of gift card breakage. We use comparable sales to evaluate the performance of our stores and digital channel sales by measuring the change in sales for a period over the comparable prior-year period of equivalent length. Comparable sales include all sales, except sales from stores open less than 13 months, digital acquisitions we have owned less than 13 months, stores that have been closed, and digital acquisitions that we no longer operate. Comparable sales measures vary across the retail industry. As a result, our comparable sales calculation is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Digitally originated sales include all sales initiated through mobile applications and our websites. Our stores fulfill the majority of digitally originated sales, including shipment from stores to guests, store Order Pickup or Drive Up, and delivery via Shipt. Digitally originated sales may also be fulfilled through our distribution centers, our vendors, or other third parties.

Sales growth—from both comparable sales and new stores—represents an important driver of our long-term profitability. We expect that comparable sales growth will drive the majority of our total sales growth. We believe that our ability to successfully differentiate our guests’ shopping experience through a careful combination of merchandise assortment, price, convenience, guest experience, and other factors will, over the long-term, drive both increasing shopping frequency (number of transactions, or "traffic") and the amount spent each visit (average transaction amount).

Note 2 to the Financial Statements provides additional product category sales information. The collective interaction of a broad array of macroeconomic, competitive, and consumer behavioral factors, as well as sales mix and the transfer of sales to new stores, makes further analysis of sales metrics infeasible.

We monitor the percentage of purchases that are paid for using Target Circle Cards™ (Target Circle Card Penetration) because our internal analysis has indicated that a meaningful portion of the incremental purchases on Target Circle Cards are also incremental sales for Target. Target Circle Cards were formerly branded as RedCards and their sales penetration was referred to as RedCard Penetration. Guests receive a 5 percent discount on virtually all purchases when they use a Target Circle Card at Target. For the three months ended May 4, 2024 and April 29, 2023, total Target Circle Card Penetration was 18.0 percent and 19.0 percent, respectively.

Gross Margin Rate

Quarter-to-Date

For the three months ended May 4, 2024, our gross margin rate was 27.7 percent compared with 26.3 percent in the comparable prior-year period. The increase reflected the net impact of merchandising activities, including cost improvements which more than offset higher promotional markdown rates. Our gross margin rate also benefited from favorable category mix and lower book to physical inventory adjustments compared to the prior-year period.

Selling, General, and Administrative Expense Rate

For the three months ended May 4, 2024, our SG&A expense rate was 21.1 percent compared with 19.8 percent for the comparable prior-year period. The increase reflected the combined impact of lower sales and the net impact of cost increases across our business, including investments in team member pay and benefits and increased marketing activities.

Net Interest Expense

For the three months ended May 4, 2024, net interest expense was $106 million compared with $147 million in the comparable prior-year period. The decrease in net interest expense was primarily due to an increase in interest income.

Provision for Income Taxes

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to GAAP Measures

To provide additional transparency, we disclose non-GAAP adjusted diluted earnings per share (Adjusted EPS). When applicable, this metric excludes certain discretely managed items. We believe this information is useful in providing period-to-period comparisons of the results of our operations. This measure is not in accordance with, or an alternative to, U.S. GAAP. The most comparable GAAP measure is diluted earnings per share. Adjusted EPS should not be considered in isolation or as a substitution for analysis of our results as reported in accordance with GAAP. Other companies may calculate Adjusted EPS differently, limiting the usefulness of the measure for comparisons with other companies.

We believe these measures provide meaningful information about our operational efficiency compared with our competitors by excluding the impact of differences in tax jurisdictions and structures, debt levels, and, for EBITDA, capital investment. These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, GAAP. The most comparable GAAP measure is net earnings. EBIT and EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitution for analysis of our results as reported in accordance with GAAP. Other companies may calculate EBIT and EBITDA differently, limiting the usefulness of the measures for comparisons with other companies.

MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS
ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION
Analysis of Financial Condition

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Capital Allocation

We follow a disciplined and balanced approach to capital allocation based on the following priorities, ranked in order of importance: first, we fully invest in opportunities to profitably grow our business, create sustainable long-term value, and maintain our current operations and assets; second, we maintain a competitive quarterly dividend and seek to grow it annually; and finally, we return any excess cash to shareholders by repurchasing shares within the limits of our credit rating goals.

Our cash and cash equivalents balance was $3.6 billion, $3.8 billion, and $1.3 billion as of May 4, 2024, February 3, 2024, and April 29, 2023, respectively. Our cash and cash equivalents balance includes short-term investments of $2.7 billion, $2.9 billion, and $408 million as of May 4, 2024, February 3, 2024, and April 29, 2023, respectively. Our investment policy is designed to preserve principal and liquidity of our short-term investments. This policy allows investments in large money market funds or in highly-rated direct short-term instruments that mature in 60 days or less. We also place dollar limits on our investments in individual funds or instruments.

Operating Cash Flows
 
Cash flows provided by operating activities were $1.1 billion for the three months ended May 4, 2024, compared with $1.3 billion for the three months ended April 29, 2023. The operating cash flow decrease is primarily due to higher incentive compensation and other payments, partially offset by the net impact of inventory and accounts payable activity.

Inventory

Inventory was $11.7 billion as of May 4, 2024, compared with $11.9 billion and $12.6 billion at February 3, 2024 and April 29, 2023, respectively. The balance as of May 4, 2024, reflects cost improvement, including lower freight rates, and the impact of changes in merchandise mix. We have also increased our inventory turnover rate, allowing us to support sales with a lower inventory investment.

Investing Cash Flows

Cash required for investing activities decreased to $0.7 billion for the three months ended May 4, 2024, compared to $1.6 billion for the three months ended April 29, 2023, due to lower capital investments.

Dividends
 
We paid dividends totaling $508 million ($1.10 per share) for the three months ended May 4, 2024, and $497 million ($1.08 per share) for the three months ended April 29, 2023, a per share increase of 1.9 percent. We declared dividends totaling $516 million ($1.10 per share) during the first quarter of 2024 and $507 million ($1.08 per share) during the first quarter of 2023, a per share increase of 1.9 percent. We have paid dividends every quarter since our 1967 initial public offering, and it is our intent to continue to do so in the future.

Share Repurchase

We did not repurchase any shares during the three months ended May 4, 2024. See Part II, Item 2, Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for more information.

MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS
ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION
Financing

Our financing strategy is to ensure liquidity and access to capital markets, to maintain a balanced spectrum of debt maturities, and to manage our net exposure to floating interest rate volatility. Within these parameters, we seek to minimize our borrowing costs. Our ability to access the long-term debt and commercial paper markets has provided us with ample sources of liquidity. Our continued access to these markets depends on multiple factors, including the condition of debt capital markets, our operating performance, and maintaining strong credit ratings. As of May 4, 2024, our credit ratings were as follows:

Credit RatingsMoody’sStandard and Poor’sFitch
Long-term debtA2AA
Commercial paperP-1A-1F1

If our credit ratings were lowered, our ability to access the debt markets, our cost of funds, and other terms for new debt issuances could be adversely impacted. Each of the credit rating agencies reviews its rating periodically, and there is no guarantee our current credit ratings will remain the same as described above.

We have the ability to obtain short-term financing from time to time under our commercial paper program and credit facilities. Our committed $1.0 billion 364-day and $3.0 billion unsecured revolving credit facilities that will expire in October 2024 and October 2028, respectively, backstop our commercial paper program. No balances were outstanding under either credit facility at any time during 2024 or 2023. There was no commercial paper outstanding as of May 4, 2024, and we had $90 million outstanding as of April 29, 2023. Note 5 to the Financial Statements provides additional information.

Most of our long-term debt obligations contain covenants related to secured debt levels. In addition to a secured debt level covenant, our credit facilities also contain a debt leverage covenant. We are, and expect to remain, in compliance with these covenants. Additionally, as of May 4, 2024, no notes or debentures contained provisions requiring acceleration of payment upon a credit rating downgrade, except that certain outstanding notes allow the note holders to put the notes to us if within a matter of months of each other we experience both (i) a change in control and (ii) our long-term credit ratings are either reduced and the resulting rating is non-investment grade, or our long-term credit ratings are placed on watch for possible reduction and those ratings are subsequently reduced and the resulting rating is non-investment grade.

We believe our sources of liquidity, namely operating cash flows, credit facility capacity, and access to capital markets, will continue to be adequate to meet our contractual obligations, working capital, and planned capital expenditures, finance anticipated expansion and strategic initiatives, fund debt maturities, pay dividends, and execute purchases under our share repurchase program for the foreseeable future.

We do not expect any recently issued accounting pronouncements to have a material effect on our financial statements.

MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS & SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION
FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS & CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
Forward-Looking Statements

This report contains forward-looking statements, which are based on our current assumptions and expectations. These statements are typically accompanied by the words "anticipate," "believe," "could," “expect,” “may,” “might,” “seek,” "will," “would,” or similar words. The principal forward-looking statements in this report include statements regarding: our future financial and operational performance, the adequacy of and costs associated with our sources of liquidity, the funding of debt maturities, the execution of our share repurchase program, our expected capital expenditures and new lease commitments, the expected compliance with debt covenants, the expected impact of new accounting pronouncements, our intentions regarding future dividends, the expected return on plan assets, the expected outcome of, and adequacy of our reserves for, claims, litigation, and the resolution of tax matters, and changes in our assumptions and expectations.

All such forward-looking statements are intended to enjoy the protection of the safe harbor for forward-looking statements contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, as amended. Although we believe there is a reasonable basis for the forward-looking statements, our actual results could be materially different. The most important factors which could cause our actual results to differ from our forward-looking statements are set forth in our description of risk factors included in Part I, Item 1A, Risk Factors of our Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 3, 2024, which should be read in conjunction with the forward-looking statements in this report. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and we do not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statement.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

There have been no material changes in our primary risk exposures or management of market risks from those disclosed in Part II, Item 7A, Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk of our Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 3, 2024.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

During the most recently completed fiscal quarter, there were no changes which materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

As of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report, we conducted an evaluation, under supervision and with the participation of management, including the chief executive officer and chief financial officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Rules 13a-15 and 15d-15 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (Exchange Act). Based upon that evaluation, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are effective at a reasonable assurance level. Disclosure controls and procedures are defined by Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act as controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in reports filed with the SEC under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in reports filed under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
