NIKE Inc announced financial results for its fiscal 2009 first quarter ended August 31, 2008. Revenue grew 17 percent to $5.4 billion, compared to $4.7 billion for the same period last year. Changes in currency exchange rates increased revenue growth by 7 percentage points for the quarter. First quarter net income decreased 10 percent to $510.5 million, compared to $569.7 million in the prior year.

Diluted earnings per share decreased 8 percent to $1.03, versus $1.12 last year. In the prior year's first quarter, the Company received a one-time tax benefit of $105.4 million, which contributed $0.20 per diluted share. Adjusted for this prior year benefit, net income and earnings per share would have grown 10% and 12%, respectively.

“Nike's first-quarter results reflect the strength of our brands and our global business,” said NIKE, Inc. President and CEO Mark Parker. “Our relentless focus on product innovation and premium consumer experiences generated balanced growth across every region and market share gains in key categories.”

Parker concluded, “Nike is able to connect with consumers and energize the market like nobody else. As we combine that with running a strong and smart business, we generate new growth, deliver strong cash flows, and create greater value for our shareholders.”

By region, futures orders for the U.S. were up 3 percent; Europe (which includes the Middle East and Africa) increased 4 percent; and Asia Pacific and the Americas each grew 27 percent.
