The company’s net sales and operating results were significantly affected by the outbreak of COVID-19. Unprecedented demand for products across multiple categories led to strong top-line results. Certain incremental costs negatively affected operating income, including costs associated with enhanced wages and benefits as well as safety and sanitation.
“More than ever, the news this quarter is our amazing associates. They are rising to the challenge to serve our customers and our communities. I’m proud of how they’re adapting and performing. Our omnichannel strategy, enabling customers to shop in seamless, flexible ways, is built for serving the needs of customers during this crisis and in the future.”

Total revenue was $134.6 billion, an increase of $10.7 billion, or 8.6%. Excluding currency2, total revenue would have increased 9.7% to reach $135.9 billion.
Walmart U.S. comp sales1 increased 10.0%, led by strength in food, consumables, health & wellness and some general merchandise categories.
Walmart U.S. eCommerce sales grew 74% with strong results for grocery pickup and delivery services, walmart.com and marketplace.
Due to continued strength of the Walmart.com brand, the company will discontinue Jet.com. The acquisition of Jet.com nearly four years ago was critical to accelerating our omni strategy.
Sam’s Club comp sales1 increased 12.0%, led by in-club transactions. eCommerce sales grew 40%. Reduced tobacco sales negatively affected comp sales by approximately 410 basis points.

Consolidated gross profit rate declined 66 basis points primarily as a result of the carryover of investments in price from last year, a shift in the sales mix to lower-margin categories and channels as well as some markdowns in general merchandise.
Consolidated operating expenses leveraged 62 basis points despite incremental costs related to COVID-19.
Consolidated operating income was $5.2 billion, an increase of 5.6% and included lower losses in Walmart U.S. eCommerce compared to Q1 FY20. Excluding currency2, operating income would have increased 6.6%.
Adjusted EPS2 excludes only the effects of an unrealized gain of $0.22, net of tax, on the company’s equity investment in JD.com.
