To our shareholders, associates and customers
Over the last few years, I’ve shared with you how we would build the “Next Generation Walmart” and serve the “Next Generation customer.” This came from a belief that the major trends shaping our world are also driving significant change in the retail landscape – the emerging global middle class, the faster adoption of mobile technology, rising energy prices and many others. At Walmart today, we have never had more clarity around what the world is going to look like, and what it will take to win with the customer we care so much about. We’ve developed and executed strategies that are delivering results, which I’ll highlight in this message. Just as important, however, are the key strategic areas where we are especially focused and accelerating.
Financial results and key strategies
Last year, Walmart delivered a really good financial performance. Our earnings per share increased 10.6 percent to $5.02. With the addition of $22 billion in net sales, we are now a $466 billion company. Our operating income was up 4.7 percent to $27.8 billion. We also grew free cash flow 18.1 percent to $12.7 billion. All of this enabled our company to return $13 billion to shareholders in dividends and share repurchases. In fact, Walmart shareholders enjoyed the best overall return in stock performance and dividends for our company this year than in more than a decade.  This success was made possible by the contributions of our 2.2 million fantastic associates around the world and their commitment to saving people money so they can live better.When it comes to our operating segments, Walmart U.S. is as strong as it has ever been. Last year, we opened our 4,000th U.S. location and added more than $10 billion in net sales, including $4.7 billion in comp sales growth. We had positive comp performance and grew market share in a number of our largest categories. Walmart International continues to be the growth engine for our company, contributing nearly 30 percent of consolidated net sales, while adding 19 million square feet of new retail space. Improving returns in Walmart International remains a top priority. Sam’s Club continues to drive sales, delivering more than $56 billion in net sales with fuel, a 4.9 percent increase over last year. With membership engagement scores at record levels, we’re continuing to focus on driving value to our members.
