We hereby qualify our forward-looking statements by these cautionary statements. Except as required by law, we assume no obligation to update these forward-looking statements publicly, or to update the reasons actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements, even if new information becomes available in the future.
All references to “we,” “us,” “our,” or the “Company” mean Nordstrom, Inc. and its subsidiaries.
In addition, statements that “we believe” and similar statements reflect our beliefs and opinions on the relevant subject. These statements are based upon information available to us as of the filing date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, and while we believe such information forms a reasonable basis for such statements, such information may be limited or incomplete, and our statements should not be read to indicate that we have conducted an exhaustive inquiry into, or review of, all potentially available relevant information. These statements are inherently uncertain and investors are cautioned not to unduly rely upon these statements.

NOTE 1: BASIS OF PRESENTATION
The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements include the balances of Nordstrom, Inc. and its subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions and balances are eliminated in consolidation. The interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared on a basis consistent in all material respects with the accounting policies described and applied in our 2021 Annual Report and reflect all adjustments of a normal recurring nature that are, in management’s opinion, necessary for the fair presentation of the results of operations, financial position and cash flows for the periods presented.
The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements as of and for the periods ended April 30, 2022 and May 1, 2021 are unaudited. The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of January 29, 2022 has been derived from the audited Consolidated Financial Statements included in our 2021 Annual Report. The interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements should be read together with the Consolidated Financial Statements and related footnote disclosures contained in our 2021 Annual Report.
Seasonality
Our business, like that of other retailers, is subject to seasonal fluctuations and cyclical trends in consumer spending. Our sales are typically higher in our second quarter, which usually includes most of our Anniversary Sale, and in the fourth quarter due to the holidays. In 2021, approximately one week of the Anniversary Sale shifted into the third quarter.
Results for any one quarter are not indicative of the results that may be achieved for a full fiscal year. We plan our merchandise purchases and receipts to coincide with expected sales trends. For instance, our merchandise purchases and receipts increase prior to the Anniversary Sale and in the fall as we prepare for the holiday shopping season in November through December. Consistent with our seasonal fluctuations, our working capital requirements have historically increased during the months leading up to the Anniversary Sale and the holidays as we purchase inventory in anticipation of increased sales.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires that we make estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities during the reporting period. Uncertainties regarding such estimates and assumptions are inherent in the preparation of financial statements and actual results may differ from these estimates and assumptions. Our most significant accounting judgments and estimates include revenue recognition, inventory valuation, long-lived asset recoverability and income taxes, all of which involve assumptions about future events. We may be unable to accurately predict the impact of COVID-19 going forward and as a result our estimates may change in the near term.
Income Taxes
As of May 1, 2021 we recorded $576 in current taxes receivable, which is classified in prepaid expenses and other on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet, and $60 in noncurrent taxes receivable, which is classified in other assets on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet. The current and noncurrent income tax receivables were primarily associated with the loss carryback provision of the CARES Act. Subsequent to the first quarter of 2021, we were refunded the majority of the current income taxes receivable.
Leases
We incurred operating lease liabilities arising from lease agreements of $84 for the quarter ended April 30, 2022 and $33 for the quarter ended May 1, 2021.
Long-Lived Assets
In the first quarter of 2022, we decided to sunset the Trunk Club brand. In conjunction with this decision, we incurred non-cash impairment charges of $10 related to a Trunk Club property to adjust the carrying values to their estimated fair value. These charges are included in our Retail segment SG&A expense on the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Earnings and other operating, net on the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows.
Investments
In July 2021, we acquired a minority interest in the Topshop, Topman, Miss Selfridge and HIIT brands through a strategic partnership with ASOS.com Ltd. We invest in financial interests of private companies that align with our business and omni-channel strategies, which are recorded in other assets in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and proceeds from the sale of assets and other, net on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.
During the first quarter of 2022, in connection with the sale of a limited partnership interest in a corporate office building, we recognized a gain of $51 in our Corporate/Other SG&A expense in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Earnings and proceeds of $73 in proceeds from the sale of assets and other, net on the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows.

We recorded $88 related to the redemption in interest expense, net, which primarily consisted of a one-time payment of $78 for a “make-whole” premium, and the write-off of unamortized balances associated with the debt discount and issuance costs. The “make-whole” premium payment was not included in cash paid during the period for interest, net of capitalized interest in the Supplemental Cash Flow Information.

Credit Facilities
As of April 30, 2022, the provisions of our prior revolving credit facility as described in our 2021 Annual Report were in effect. Subsequent to quarter end, we terminated and replaced our prior revolving credit facility set to expire in September 2023 with a new five-year $800 Revolver that expires in May 2027. Consistent with our prior revolving credit agreement, any outstanding borrowings under the Revolver are secured by substantially all our personal and intellectual property assets and are guaranteed by certain of our subsidiaries. Under the Revolver, our obligation to secure any outstanding borrowings will be eliminated if no default exists and we either have an unsecured investment-grade debt rating from two of three specified ratings agencies, or we have one investment-grade rating and achieve two consecutive fiscal quarters with a Leverage Ratio of less than 2.5 times.
Under the Revolver, we have two financial covenant tests that need to be met on a quarterly basis: a Leverage Ratio that is less than or equal to 4 times and a fixed charge coverage ratio that is greater than or equal to 1.25 times. For the first quarter of 2022, we are reporting our quarterly compliance status under the terms of the new Revolver and are in compliance with all covenants.
The Revolver provides us with additional flexibility, compared with our prior revolving credit facility, for dividends and share repurchases, provided we are not in default, and no default would arise as a result of such payments. If the pro-forma Leverage Ratio after such payments is less than 3 times, then such payments are unlimited. If the pro-forma Leverage Ratio is greater than or equal to 3 times but less than 3.5 times then we are limited to $100 per fiscal quarter and if the pro-forma Leverage Ratio is greater than or equal to 3.5 times then the limit is $60 per fiscal quarter.
The Revolver contains customary representations, warranties, covenants and terms, including paying a variable rate of interest and a facility fee based on our debt rating, and is available for working capital, capital expenditures and general corporate purposes. Provided that we obtain written consent from the lenders, we have the option to increase the Revolver by up to $200, to a total of $1,000, and two options to extend the Revolver for additional one-year terms. As of April 30, 2022, we had no borrowings outstanding under our Revolver.
Our $800 commercial paper program allows us to use the proceeds to fund operating cash requirements. Under the terms of the commercial paper agreement, we pay a rate of interest based on, among other factors, the maturity of the issuance and market conditions. The issuance of commercial paper has the effect of reducing available liquidity under the Revolver by an amount equal to the principal amount of commercial paper outstanding. Conversely, borrowings under our Revolver have the effect of reducing the available capacity of our commercial paper program by an amount equal to the amount outstanding. As of April 30, 2022, we had no issuances outstanding under our commercial paper program.
NOTE 4: FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
We disclose our financial assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value in our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets by level within the fair value hierarchy as defined by applicable accounting standards:
Level 1: Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities
Level 2: Other observable market-based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data
Level 3: Unobservable inputs that cannot be corroborated by market data that reflect the reporting entity’s own assumptions
Financial Instruments Measured at Carrying Value
Financial instruments measured at carrying value on a recurring basis include cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and our Revolver, which approximate fair value due to their short-term nature.
Long-term debt is recorded at carrying value. If long-term debt was measured at fair value, we would use quoted market prices of the same or similar issues, which is considered a Level 2 fair value measurement. The following table summarizes the carrying value and fair value estimate of our long-term debt, including current maturities:
April 30, 2022January 29, 2022May 1, 2021
Carrying value of long-term debt$2,854 $2,853 $3,347 
Fair value of long-term debt2,544 2,758 3,480 
Non-financial Assets Measured at Fair Value on a Nonrecurring Basis
We also measure certain non-financial assets at fair value on a nonrecurring basis, primarily goodwill, long-lived tangible and ROU assets, in connection with periodic evaluations for potential impairment. We estimate the fair value of these assets using primarily unobservable inputs and, as such, these are considered Level 3 fair value measurements. For more information regarding long-lived tangible asset impairment charges for the quarter ended April 30, 2022, see Note 1: Basis of Presentation. There were no material impairment charges for these assets for the quarter ended May 1, 2021.

NOTE 6: SHAREHOLDERS’ EQUITY
In August 2018, our Board of Directors authorized a program to repurchase up to $1,500 of our outstanding common stock, with no expiration date. We repurchased no shares of common stock during the first quarter of 2022 and we had $707 remaining in share repurchase capacity as of April 30, 2022. Subsequent to quarter end, the Board of Directors authorized a new $500 share repurchase program, with no expiration date. This program replaced the August 2018 program. The actual timing, price, manner and amounts of future share repurchases, if any, will be subject to the discretion of the Board of Directors, contractual commitments, market and economic conditions and applicable SEC rules.
In May 2022, subsequent to quarter end, we declared a quarterly dividend of $0.19 per share, which will be paid on June 15, 2022 to shareholders of record at the close of business on May 31, 2022.
We have certain limitations with respect to the payment of dividends and share repurchases under our Revolver agreement (see Note 3: Debt and Credit Facilities).
NOTE 7: COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Our NYC flagship store opened in October 2019 and the related building and equipment assets were placed into service at the end of the third quarter of 2019. While our store has opened, construction continues in the residential condominium units above the store. As of April 30, 2022, we have a fee interest in the retail condominium unit. In the third quarter of 2021, we paid the majority of our final installment payment based on the developer meeting final pre-established construction and development milestones.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.
(Dollar and share amounts in millions except per share amounts and where noted otherwise)
OVERVIEW
Our first quarter results were marked by strong topline growth and continued progress in our transformation. Net earnings for the first quarter was $20, or $0.13 per diluted share. After excluding a gain on sale of our interest in a corporate office building and an impairment charge related to a Trunk Club property, adjusted loss per diluted share was $0.06. First quarter net sales increased 19% over the first quarter of 2021. This quarter, we saw customers shopping for long-anticipated in-person occasions such as social events, travel and return to office. Beyond occasions, customers also re-evaluated and refreshed their wardrobes. We are encouraged by this opportunity because it favors the core categories of our business and the core capabilities of our service model.
Our team remains focused on building additional capabilities to better serve customers and drive shareholder value, with particular emphasis on three key areas: improving Nordstrom Rack performance, increasing profitability and optimizing our supply chain and inventory flow.
Nordstrom Rack – Sales grew 10% versus last year, driven by increased store traffic, improved conversion and better in-stock levels. We also built momentum with sales increasing as we moved through the quarter. We are achieving a better balance of price points at Nordstrom Rack by increasing our supply of premium brands and fine tuning our assortment to better align with customer needs. As we move through the year, we expect to see continued benefits from our multi-layered plan to ensure we have the right selection for our customers, which includes expanding our offerings of the most coveted brands, sourcing from new vendors and increasing our use of pack and hold inventory.
Profitability – We continued our progress in improving our merchandise margins this quarter. Our team used advanced analytics to better understand customer needs, find opportunities to improve our assortment and presentation and optimize markdowns. We also increased average retail prices without seeing a negative impact on transaction volumes. We are focused on plans to deliver incremental improvements and elevated flowthrough throughout the remainder of the year.
Supply Chain and Inventory Flow Optimization – We have identified opportunities across our network to improve efficiencies and capabilities, increase sell-through, reduce markdowns, drive expense savings and ultimately improve our service to customers. We have four initiatives in flight:
First, improving the consistency and predictability of unit flow through our network,
Second, increasing productivity in our distribution and fulfillment centers,
Third, accelerating delivery speed,
And finally, expanding the market-level selection for in-store shopping as well as same-day and next-day pickup.
We still have work to do, but are encouraged by early results and expect to see more significant benefits in the second half of this year.
In addition to the three focus areas above, winning in our most important markets and advancing our digital capabilities are key strategic priorities for us, and we continue to make progress in these areas.
Market Strategy – Our market strategy helps us engage with customers through better service and greater access to product, no matter how our customer chooses to shop. We deliver a level of convenience and connection that our customers enjoy by leveraging a strong store fleet and linking our omnichannel capabilities at the market level. Customers clearly value our interconnected model, with order pickup comprising 10% of Nordstrom.com demand this quarter, an increase of more than 200 basis points versus the prior year. Customers utilizing in-store pickup have higher engagement and spend 3.5 times more than customers who do not utilize the service. Buy Online Pick Up In Store also remains our most profitable customer journey and one of our highest satisfaction customer experiences.
Our styling program also continues to be a powerful engagement driver as we deliver convenience and build deeper customer connections through our Closer to You strategy. As we position our styling program for further growth, we are sunsetting Trunk Club and redirecting our resources to the services our customers tell us they value most. This move reflects our belief in and commitment to styling. Customers spend seven times more and report higher levels of satisfaction when engaging with a stylist either in-store or online, and we are committed to growing and investing in these services.
Digital Capabilities – Digital sales were flat versus the first quarter of 2021, as more customers returned to stores. Digital remains an important part of the business, with 39% penetration, and is an important part of our in-store experience. We will continue to leverage our digital platforms to deliver personalization at scale, especially as we connect with customers through our upcoming Anniversary Sale in the second quarter.
As we look ahead to the second quarter, we believe our customers will benefit from the timing of the Anniversary Sale as they return to events and update their wardrobes. Our Anniversary Sale rewards and engages our loyal customers with brand new product from the best brands at reduced prices for a limited time. Our focus this year is on new and highly coveted brands, bringing back in-store events, and launching a new digital catalog.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.
(Dollar and share amounts in millions except per share amounts and where noted otherwise)
We are excited about our plans for the year and the progress we are making on our transformation. Investments in our market strategy and digital assets put us in a strong position to capitalize on favorable market opportunities as events and overall demand continue to recover. Beyond topline growth, we made progress improving merchandise margin and driving SG&A efficiency, and we have specific workstreams in place to drive incremental improvement in the second half of the year. We have line of sight to achieving the financial targets outlined at our 2021 Investor Event and remain committed to shareholder value creation.
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
In our ongoing effort to enhance the customer experience, we are focused on providing a seamless retail experience across our Company. We invested early in integrating our operations, merchandising and technology across our stores and online, and in both Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack banners. By connecting our digital and physical assets across Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack, we are able to better serve customers when, where and how they want to shop. We have one Retail reportable segment and analyze our results on a total Company basis, using customer, market share, operational and net sales metrics.
We monitor a number of key operating metrics to evaluate our Company’s performance. In addition to net sales, net earnings (loss) and other results under GAAP, two other key operating metrics we use are GMV and inventory turnover rate.
GMV: Our GMV represents the total dollar value of items sold through our digital platforms and stores. GMV includes net sales from inventory we own, as well as the value of merchandise sold under our alternative partnership models with our vendors. We use GMV as an indicator of the scale and growth of our operations and the impact of our alternative partnership models.
Inventory Turnover Rate: Inventory turnover rate is calculated as the trailing 4-quarter cost of sales and related buying and occupancy costs divided by the trailing 4-quarter average inventory. Inventory turnover rate is an indicator of our success in optimizing inventory volumes in accordance with customer demand.
Net Sales
The following table summarizes net sales:
Quarter Ended
April 30, 2022May 1, 2021
Net sales:
Nordstrom $2,289 $1,854

Nordstrom Rack10.3 %59.5 %
Total Company18.7 %44.2 %
Digital sales as a % of net sales39 %46 %
Digital sales increase %23 %
Total Company net sales increased for the first quarter of 2022, compared with the same period in 2021, exceeding pre-pandemic sales levels. This increase was driven by pricing actions, favorable mix shift and transaction growth. Both customer counts and spend per customer increased compared with the same period in 2021. Total Company GMV increased 20% compared with the same period in 2021. Improvements were broad-based across regions, with urban stores having the strongest growth against the first quarter of 2021. Men’s and women’s apparel, shoes and designer were the top-performing merchandise categories.
Total Company digital sales were flat in the first quarter of 2022, compared with the same period in 2021 and represented 39% of total net sales. Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack net sales increased for the first quarter of 2022 compared with the same period in 2021. Nordstrom GMV increased 25% compared with the same period in 2021.
There were no store openings or closures during the first quarter of 2022. Subsequent to quarter end, we opened the ASOS | Nordstrom store in Los Angeles, CA.
Credit Card Revenues, Net
Credit card revenues, net were $102 for the first quarter of 2022, compared with $88 for the same period in 2021. This increase was primarily the result of higher finance charges and late fee revenues throughout the first quarter of 2022 due to larger outstanding balances.

Inventory turnover rate4.12 4.51 
Gross profit increased $234 during the first quarter of 2022, compared with the same period in 2021, almost entirely due to higher sales volume. Gross profit increased 190 basis points as a rate of net sales, primarily due to increased leverage on buying and occupancy costs and improved merchandise margins from favorable pricing impacts and lower markdown rates.
Ending inventory increased 24% compared with the same period in 2021, versus a 19% increase in sales. Approximately one-quarter of the change in inventory levels versus 2021 is due to pull-forward of Anniversary Sale receipts.
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses
SG&A is summarized in the following table:

April 30, 2022May 1, 2021
SG&A expenses$1,165 $1,075 
SG&A expenses as a % of net sales33.6 %36.8 %
SG&A increased $90 during the first quarter of 2022, compared with the same period in 2021, almost entirely due to increased variable expenses associated with higher sales volume. This was partially offset by the $51 gain on sale of our interest in a corporate office building. SG&A decreased 320 basis points as a rate of net sales, primarily due to leverage on higher sales and the impacts from the gain on sale of our interest in a corporate office building.
Earnings (Loss) Before Interest and Income Taxes
EBIT is summarized in the following table:
Quarter Ended
April 30, 2022May 1, 2021
EBIT$73 ($85)
EBIT as a % of net sales2.1 %(2.9 %)
EBIT improved $158 and 500 basis points during the first quarter of 2022, compared with the same period in 2021. The increase was almost entirely due to impacts of higher sales volume and the gain on sale of our interest in a corporate office building.
Interest Expense, Net
Interest expense, net was $35 for the first quarter of 2022, compared with $137 for the same period in 2021. The decrease was primarily due to the debt refinance charges of $88 related to the redemption of the Secured Notes in the first quarter of 2021.

Earnings (Loss) Per Share
EPS is as follows:
Quarter Ended
April 30, 2022May 1, 2021
Basic$0.13 ($1.05)
Diluted$0.13 ($1.05)
Earnings (loss) per diluted share improved $1.18 for the first quarter of 2022, compared with the same period in 2021. The improvement includes a net impact of $0.19 per diluted share due to the gain on sale of our interest in a corporate office building partially offset by an impairment charge related to a Trunk Club property. In the first quarter of 2021, we recorded an interest expense charge of $88 related to the redemption of the Secured Notes, which reduced EPS by $0.41 per share.
Fiscal Year 2022 Outlook
We are updating our outlook to reflect first quarter performance, resulting in the following financial expectations for fiscal 2022:
Revenue growth, including retail sales and credit card revenues, of 6 to 8 percent versus fiscal 2021
EBIT margin of 5.8 to 6.2 percent of sales
Adjusted EBIT margin of 5.6 to 6.0 percent of sales
Income tax rate of approximately 27 percent
EPS of $3.38 to $3.68, excluding the impact of share repurchase activity, if any
Adjusted EPS of $3.20 to $3.50, excluding the impact of share repurchase activity, if any
Leverage ratio of approximately 2.5 times by year-end
Our adjusted EBIT as a percent of net sales (“adjusted EBIT margin”) and Adjusted EPS outlook for fiscal year 2022 excludes the impacts from certain items that we do not consider representative of our core operating performance. These items include the expected full fiscal year 2022 impact associated with a gain on the sale of our interest in a corporate office building and an impairment charge related to a Trunk Club property recognized in the first quarter of 2022.
The following is a reconciliation of net earnings as a percent of net sales to adjusted EBIT margin included within our Fiscal Year 2022 Outlook:

Adjusted EBIT, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS (Non-GAAP financial measures)
Adjusted EBIT, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS are key financial metrics and, when used in conjunction with GAAP measures, we believe they provide useful information for evaluating our core business performance, enable comparison of financial results across periods and allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management for financial and operational decision-making. Adjusted EBIT, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS exclude certain items that we do not consider representative of our core operating performance. The financial measure calculated under GAAP which is most directly comparable to Adjusted EBIT and Adjusted EBITDA is net earnings. The financial measure calculated under GAAP which is most directly comparable to Adjusted EPS is earnings (loss) per diluted share.
Adjusted EBIT, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS are not measures of financial performance under GAAP and should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, net earnings, overall change in cash, earnings (loss) per share, earnings (loss) per diluted share or other financial measures performed in accordance with GAAP. Our method of determining non-GAAP financial measures may differ from other companies’ financial measures and therefore may not be comparable to methods used by other companies. The following is a reconciliation of net earnings (loss) to Adjusted EBIT and Adjusted EBITDA:

Adjusted ROIC (Non-GAAP financial measure)
We believe that Adjusted ROIC is a useful financial measure for investors in evaluating the efficiency and effectiveness of the capital we have invested in our business to generate returns over time. In addition, we have incorporated it in our executive incentive measures and we believe it is an important indicator of shareholders’ return over the long term.
Adjusted ROIC is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, return on assets, net earnings, total assets or other GAAP financial measures. Our method of calculating non-GAAP financial measures may differ from other companies’ methods and therefore may not be comparable to those used by other companies. The financial measure calculated under GAAP which is most directly comparable to Adjusted ROIC is return on assets. The following is a reconciliation of return on assets to Adjusted ROIC:

Return on assets3.9 %(3.5 %)
Adjusted ROIC9.4 %(2.0 %)
1 Operating lease interest is a component of operating lease cost recorded in occupancy costs. We add back operating lease interest for purposes of calculating adjusted net operating profit (loss) for consistency with the treatment of interest expense on our debt.
2 Estimated income tax (expense) benefit is calculated by multiplying the adjusted net operating profit (loss) by the effective tax rate for the trailing twelve month periods ended April 30, 2022 and May 1, 2021. The effective tax rate is calculated by dividing income tax expense (benefit) by earnings (loss) before income taxes for the same trailing twelve month periods.
3 For leases with property incentives that exceed the ROU assets, we reclassify the amount from assets to other current liabilities and other liabilities and reduce average total assets, as this better reflects how we manage our business.
LIQUIDITY
We strive to maintain a level of liquidity sufficient to allow us to cover our seasonal cash needs and to maintain appropriate levels of short-term borrowings. In the short term, our ongoing working capital and capital expenditure requirements and any dividend payments or share repurchases are generally funded primarily through cash flows generated from operations. In addition, we have access to the commercial paper market and can draw on our revolving credit facilities for working capital, capital expenditures and general corporate purposes. Over the long term, we manage our cash and capital structure to maximize shareholder return, maintain our financial position, manage refinancing risk and allow flexibility for strategic initiatives. We regularly assess our debt and leverage levels, capital expenditure requirements, debt service payments, dividend payouts, potential share repurchases and other future investments.
We ended the first quarter of 2022 with $484 in cash and cash equivalents and $800 of additional liquidity available on our Revolver. The increase in cash and cash equivalents in the first quarter of 2022, compared with 2021, is driven by timing of payments for merchandise and higher net earnings. We believe that our operating cash flows are sufficient to meet our cash requirements for the next 12 months and beyond. Our cash requirements are subject to change as business conditions warrant and opportunities arise and we may elect to raise additional funds in the future through the issuance of either debt or equity.

The following is a summary of our cash flows by activity:

Net cash provided by (used in) operating activities$187 ($364)
Net cash used in investing activities(11)(110)
Net cash (used in) provided by financing activities(14)167 
Operating Activities
Net cash from operating activities increased $551 for the quarter ended April 30, 2022, compared with the same period in 2021, primarily due to timing of payments for merchandise and an increase in net earnings.
Investing Activities
Net cash used in investing activities decreased $99 for the quarter ended April 30, 2022, compared with the same period in 2021, primarily due to the sale of our interest in a corporate office building (see Note 1: Basis of Presentation in Item 1).
Capital Expenditures
Our capital expenditures, net are summarized as follows:
Quarter Ended

Capital expenditures$96 $126 
Less: deferred property incentives1

Capital expenditures, net$91 $120 
Capital expenditures as a % of net sales2.8 %4.3 %
1 Deferred property incentives are included in our cash provided by operations in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows in Item 1. We operationally view the property incentives we receive from our developers and vendors as an offset to our capital expenditures.
Financing Activities
Net cash from financing activities decreased $181 for the quarter ended April 30, 2022, compared with the same period in 2021, primarily due to net activity in 2021 related to long-term debt and our Revolver, partially offset by the make-whole premium (see Note 3: Debt and Credit Facilities in Item 1).
Dividends
We paid $30, or $0.19 per share, for the quarter ended April 30, 2022 compared with no dividends in the same period of 2021.
Free Cash Flow (Non-GAAP financial measure)
Free Cash Flow is one of our key liquidity measures and, when used in conjunction with GAAP measures, we believe it provides investors with a meaningful analysis of our ability to generate cash from our business.
Free Cash Flow is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, operating cash flows or other financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our method of calculating a non-GAAP financial measure may differ from other companies’ methods and therefore may not be comparable to those used by other companies. The financial measure calculated under GAAP which is most directly comparable to Free Cash Flow is net cash provided by (used in) operating activities. The following is a reconciliation of net cash provided by (used in) operating activities to Free Cash Flow:
Quarter Ended

CAPITAL RESOURCES
Borrowing Capacity and Activity
As of April 30, 2022, the provisions of our prior revolving credit facility as described in our 2021 Annual Report were in effect. Subsequent to quarter end, we terminated and replaced our prior revolving credit facility set to expire in September 2023 with a new five-year $800 Revolver that expires in May 2027. As of April 30, 2022, we had no borrowings outstanding under our Revolver and no issuances outstanding under our commercial paper program. For more information about our credit facilities, see Note 3: Debt and Credit Facilities in Item 1.
Impact of Credit Ratings and Revolver Covenants
Changes in our credit ratings may impact our costs to borrow, whether our personal property secures our Revolver and whether and to what extent we are permitted to pay dividends or conduct share repurchases.
For our Revolver, the interest rate applicable to any borrowings we may enter into depends upon the type of borrowing incurred plus an applicable margin, which is determined based on our credit ratings. At the time of this report, our credit ratings and outlook were as follows:
Credit RatingsOutlook
Moody’sBa1Stable
Standard & Poor’sBB+Stable
FitchBBB-Negative
Should the ratings assigned to our long-term debt improve, the applicable margin associated with any borrowings under the Revolver may decrease, resulting in a lower borrowing cost under this facility. Conversely, should the ratings assigned to our long-term debt worsen, the applicable margin associated with any borrowings under the Revolver may increase, resulting in a higher borrowing cost under this facility.
For the first quarter of 2022, we reported our quarterly compliance status under the terms of the new Revolver and were in compliance with all covenants. We have certain limitations with respect to the payment of dividends and share repurchases under our Revolver agreement. For more information about our Revolver covenants, see Note 3: Debt and Credit Facilities in Item 1.

Adjusted Debt to EBITDAR (Non-GAAP financial measure)
Adjusted Debt to EBITDAR is one of our key financial metrics and we believe that our debt levels are best analyzed using this measure, as it provides a reflection of our creditworthiness which could impact our credit rating and borrowing costs. This metric is calculated in accordance with the updates in our new Revolver covenant and is a key component in assessing whether our revolving credit facility is secured or unsecured, as well as our ability to make dividend payments and share repurchases. Our goal is to manage debt levels to achieve and maintain investment-grade credit ratings while operating with an efficient capital structure.
Subsequent to April 30, 2022, we replaced our Revolver which was set to expire in September 2023 with a new Revolver dated May 6, 2022. Under the new Revolver, the covenant calculation was updated to reflect the current lease standard (ASC 842). This change in our Revolver covenant did not have a material impact on our Adjusted Debt to EBITDAR. For more information regarding our Revolver, see Note 3: Debt and Credit Facilities in Item 1.
Adjusted Debt to EBITDAR is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, debt to net earnings, net earnings, debt or other GAAP financial measures. Our method of calculating a non-GAAP financial measure may differ from other companies’ methods and therefore may not be comparable to those used by other companies. The financial measure calculated under GAAP which is most directly comparable to Adjusted Debt to EBITDAR is debt to net earnings. The following is a reconciliation of debt to net earnings to Adjusted Debt to EBITDAR:
April 30, 2022
Debt$2,854 
Add: operating lease liabilities1,816 
Adjusted Debt$4,670 
Four Quarters Ended April 30, 2022
Net earnings$364 
Add: income tax expense142 
Add: interest expense, net144 
Adjusted earnings before interest and income taxes$650 
Add: depreciation and amortization expenses604 
Add: Operating Lease Cost269 
Add: amortization of developer reimbursements1
76 
Less: other Revolver covenant adjustments2
(32)
Adjusted EBITDAR$1,567 
Debt to Net Earnings7.8 
Adjusted Debt to EBITDAR3.0 
1 Amortization of developer reimbursements is a non-cash reduction of Operating Lease Cost and is therefore added back to Operating Lease Cost for purposes of our Revolver covenant calculation.
2 Other adjusting items to reconcile net earnings to Adjusted EBITDAR as defined by our Revolver covenant include interest income and certain non-cash charges and other gains and losses where relevant. For the four quarters ended April 30, 2022, other Revolver covenant adjustments included a $51 gain on sale of the Company’s interest in a corporate office building.
CRITICAL ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES
The preparation of our financial statements requires that we make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We base our estimates on historical experience and other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results may differ from these estimates. We believe that the estimates, assumptions and judgments involved in the accounting policies referred to in our 2021 Annual Report have the greatest potential effect on our financial statements, so we consider these to be our critical accounting policies and estimates. Our management has discussed the development and selection of these critical accounting estimates with the Audit & Finance Committee of our Board of Directors. There have been no material changes to our significant accounting policies or critical accounting estimates as described in our 2021 Annual Report.

RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
There are no recent accounting pronouncements that are anticipated to have a material impact on our results of operations, liquidity or capital resources.
Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.
We discussed our interest rate risk and foreign currency exchange risk in our 2021 Annual Report. There have been no material changes to these risks since that time.
Item 4. Controls and Procedures.
DISCLOSURE CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
For the purposes of the Exchange Act, our Chief Executive Officer, Erik B. Nordstrom, serves as our principal executive officer and our Chief Financial Officer, Anne L. Bramman, is our principal financial officer.
Under the supervision and with the participation of management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, we have performed an evaluation of the design and effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the last day of the period covered by this report.
Based upon that evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective. Disclosure controls and procedures are defined by Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act as controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information 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 within 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 in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
CHANGES IN INTERNAL CONTROL OVER FINANCIAL REPORTING
There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) or 15d-15(f) of the Exchange Act) during our most recently completed fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
PART II — OTHER INFORMATION
Item 1. Legal Proceedings.
We are subject from time to time to various claims and lawsuits arising in the ordinary course of business, including lawsuits alleging violations of state and/or federal wage and hour and other employment laws, privacy and other consumer-based claims. Some of these lawsuits may include certified classes of litigants, or purport or may be determined to be class or collective actions and seek substantial damages or injunctive relief, or both, and some may remain unresolved for several years. We believe the recorded accruals in our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements are adequate in light of the probable and estimable liabilities. As of the date of this report, we do not believe any currently identified claim, proceeding or litigation, either alone or in the aggregate, will have a material impact on our results of operations, financial position or cash flows. Since these matters are subject to inherent uncertainties, our view of them may change in the future.
Item 1A. Risk Factors.
There have been no material changes to the risk factors we discussed in our 2021 Annual Report.

(c) SHARE REPURCHASES
(Dollar and share amounts in millions, except per share amounts)
In August 2018, our Board of Directors authorized a program to repurchase up to $1,500 of our outstanding common stock, with no expiration date. We repurchased no shares of common stock during the first quarter of 2022 and we had $707 remaining in share repurchase capacity as of April 30, 2022. Subsequent to quarter end, the Board of Directors authorized a new $500 share repurchase program, with no expiration date. This program replaced the August 2018 program. The actual timing, price, manner and amounts of future share repurchases, if any, will be subject to the discretion of the Board of Directors, contractual commitments, market and economic conditions and applicable SEC rules.
