NIKE, Inc. Reports Fiscal 2014 First Quarter Results

September 26, 2013
  • Revenues from continuing operations up 8 percent to $7.0 billion
  • Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations up 37 percent to $0.86
  • Worldwide futures orders up 8 percent, 10 percent growth excluding currency changes
  • Inventories as of August 31, 2013 up 6 percent

BEAVERTON, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- NIKE, Inc. (NYSE:NKE) today reported financial results for its fiscal 2014 first quarter ended August 31, 2013. Strong demand for NIKE, Inc. brands propelled revenue growth, and diluted earnings per share grew faster than revenue due to gross margin expansion, SG&A leverage, a lower tax rate and a lower average share count.

“We had a great first quarter driven by our unrelenting commitment to delivering innovative products and services to athletes around the world,” said Mark Parker, President and CEO of NIKE, Inc. “Our powerful portfolio of businesses combined with unmatched leadership and resources allows us to capitalize on opportunities that drive long-term value for our shareholders. I am more excited than ever about our potential to continue to innovate with purpose, and fuel NIKE’s growth.”*

First Quarter Continuing Operations Income Statement Review

Starting in the first quarter of fiscal 2014, the Company changed the reporting structure for what was historically identified as Other Businesses. Hurley and NIKE Golf have been included in the overall financial results for the NIKE Brand and for individual geographies, reflecting the operational integration of these businesses into the NIKE Brand category offense. Converse will now be reported as a separate segment, reflecting the ongoing operation of this brand as a stand-alone business.

  • Revenues for NIKE, Inc. increased 8 percent to $7.0 billion. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates did not have a significant impact on total reported revenue growth.
    • Revenues for the NIKE Brand were $6.5 billion, up 7 percent on a currency neutral basis, with growth in every product type and every geography except Greater China. For the first quarter, NIKE Brand revenues were higher in Running, Basketball, Football (Soccer) and Men’s Training, offsetting a slight decline in Sportswear.
    • Revenues for Converse were $494 million, up 16 percent on a currency neutral basis, driven by strong performance in our largest owned markets: the United Kingdom, North America and China.
  • Gross margin increased 120 basis points to 44.9 percent. Gross margin benefitted from easing raw material costs, a shift in the mix of the Company’s revenues to higher margin products, lower discounts and growth in the higher margin Direct to Consumer business. These benefits were partially offset by higher labor costs and unfavorable changes in foreign exchange rates.
  • Selling and administrative expense was in line with the same period last year at $2.1 billion. Demand creation expense was $731 million, down 16 percent versus the prior year, which included higher spending supporting key product initiatives, as well as the Olympics and European Football Championships. Operating overhead expense increased 12 percent to $1.3 billion due to investments in digital innovation and other growth businesses, as well as higher Direct to Consumer costs driven by growth and new store openings.
  • Other expense, net was $28 million, comprised primarily of foreign currency exchange losses. For the quarter, the Company estimates the year-over-year change in foreign currency related gains and losses included in other expense (income), net, combined with the impact of changes in currency exchange rates on the translation of foreign currency-denominated profits, decreased pretax income by approximately $38 million.
  • The effective tax rate was 25.0 percent, compared to 26.9 percent for the same period last year, an improvement due primarily to a lower effective tax rate on operations outside the United States.
  • Net income increased 33 percent to $780 million while diluted earnings per share increased 37 percent to $0.86, reflecting a 1 percent decline in the weighted average diluted common shares outstanding.

August 31, 2013 Balance Sheet Review for Continuing Operations

  • Inventories for NIKE, Inc. were $3.5 billion, up 6 percent from August 31, 2012. NIKE Brand wholesale unit inventories increased 8 percent to support future demand. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates and product cost drove approximately a 2 percentage point decline in NIKE, Inc. inventory growth.
  • Cash and short-term investments were $5.6 billion, $2.3 billion higher than last year mainly as a result of proceeds from the issuance of debt and sale of the Umbro and Cole Haan businesses in the prior fiscal year, in addition to higher net income and continued focus on working capital productivity.

Share Repurchases

During the first quarter, NIKE, Inc. repurchased a total of 8.4 million shares for approximately $526 million as part of the four-year, $8 billion program approved by the Board of Directors in September 2012. As of the end of the first quarter, a total of 23.7 million shares had been repurchased under this program at a cost of approximately $1.3 billion.

Futures Orders

As of the end of the quarter, worldwide futures orders for NIKE Brand athletic footwear and apparel scheduled for delivery from September 2013 through January 2014 were 8 percent higher than orders reported for the same period last year. Excluding currency changes, reported orders would have increased 10 percent.*

The conference call will be broadcast live over the Internet and can be accessed at http://investors.nikeinc.com.

* The marked paragraphs contain forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially.

1 Futures orders by geography and in total for NIKE Brand athletic footwear and apparel scheduled for delivery from September 2013 through January 2014, excluding NIKE Golf and Hurley.
The reported futures and advance orders growth is not necessarily indicative of our expectation of revenue growth during this period. This is due to year-over-year changes in shipment timing and because the mix of orders can shift between advance/futures and at-once orders and the fulfillment of certain orders may fall outside of the schedule noted above. In addition, exchange rate fluctuations as well as differing levels of order cancellations, discounts and returns can cause differences in the comparisons between advance/futures orders and actual revenues. Moreover, a significant portion of our revenue is not derived from futures and advance orders, including at-once and close-out sales of NIKE Brand footwear and apparel, sales of NIKE Brand equipment, sales from certain of our Direct to Consumer operations, and sales from Converse, NIKE Golf and Hurley.
2 Reported futures have been restated using prior year exchange rates to enhance the visibility of the underlying business trends excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.
