<span class="news-details-txt">The revenue for Nike has been recorded at $8.6 billion for the second quarter of fiscal 2018, up 5 per cent as compared to the same period previous year. For the reported quarter, revenue growth was driven by international geographies and continued strength in Nike Direct, which was partly offset by an expected decline in North America wholesale revenue.                                     <p>                                     <p>Diluted earnings per share were $0.46, down 8 per cent compared to the same period last year primarily due to decline in gross margin and higher selling and administrative expense, which offset solid revenue growth, a lower tax rate and a lower average share count.                                     </p>                                     <p>The company's gross margin declined to 43.0 per cent, as higher average selling prices were more than offset by unfavorable changes in foreign currency exchange rates and, to a lesser extent, higher product costs per unit.                                     </p>                                     <p>For the reported period, net income decreased 9 per cent to $767 million as a decline in gross margin and higher selling and administrative expense more than offset revenue growth and a lower tax rate, while diluted earnings per share decreased 8 per cent from the prior year to $0.46, including a 2 per cent decline in the weighted average diluted common shares outstanding.                                     </p>                                     <p>'This quarter, led by our consumer direct offense, we accelerated international growth and built underlying momentum in our domestic business," said Mark Parker, chairman, president and CEO, Nike, Inc.

For the reported quarter, revenue growth was driven by international geographies and continued strength in Nike Direct, which was partly offset by an expected decline in North America wholesale revenue.

Diluted earnings per share were $0.46, down 8 per cent compared to the same period last year primarily due to decline in gross margin and higher selling and administrative expense, which offset solid revenue growth, a lower tax rate and a lower average share count.

The company's gross margin declined to 43.0 per cent, as higher average selling prices were more than offset by unfavorable changes in foreign currency exchange rates and, to a lesser extent, higher product costs per unit.

For the reported period, net income decreased 9 per cent to $767 million as a decline in gross margin and higher selling and administrative expense more than offset revenue growth and a lower tax rate, while diluted earnings per share decreased 8 per cent from the prior year to $0.46, including a 2 per cent decline in the weighted average diluted common shares outstanding.

'This quarter, led by our consumer direct offense, we accelerated international growth and built underlying momentum in our domestic business," said Mark Parker, chairman, president and CEO, Nike, Inc.
