Nike delivers excellent operating results
Mar '09
NIKE Inc announced financial results for its fiscal 2009 third quarter ended February 28, 2009. Revenue decreased 2 percent to $4.4 billion, compared to $4.5 billion for the same period last year. Excluding changes in currency exchange rates, revenue would have increased 2 percent.

Third quarter net income was $243.8 million or $0.50 per diluted share, compared to $463.8 million or $0.92 per diluted share in the same period last year. Excluding a $240.7 million, after-tax non-cash charge related to the impairment of goodwill, intangible and other assets of the Company's Umbro subsidiary, third quarter net income would have increased 4 percent to $484.5 million and diluted earnings per share would have increased 8 percent to $0.99.

“Today's results say a lot about the strength and diversity of Nike, Inc. In a challenging environment, we delivered excellent operating results by executing with both focus and flexibility,” said Mark Parker, President and CEO of Nike, Inc. “I feel very good about our performance and our potential. Going forward we'll continue to stay close to the consumer, drive innovation into the marketplace, and operate with financial discipline by making the right decisions to restructure our organization for the future. The Nike, Inc. portfolio of brands is a diverse and competitive asset. We'll continue to leverage all aspects of it to deliver consistent, long-term shareholder value.”

Futures Orders
The Company reported worldwide futures orders for Nike brand athletic footwear and apparel, scheduled for delivery from March 2009 through July 2009, totaling $6.5 billion, 10 percent lower than such orders reported for the same period last year. Excluding the effect of changes in currency exchange rates, reported orders would have declined 2 percent.

By region, futures orders for the U.S. were down 1 percent; EMEA (which includes Europe, the Middle East and Africa) decreased 25 percent; Asia Pacific declined 1 percent and the Americas were down 4 percent. Excluding changes in currency exchange rates futures orders in EMEA would have declined 9 percent, increased 2 percent in Asia Pacific; and increased 22 percent in the Americas region.

Non-Cash Impairment Charge
In the third quarter the Company recorded a $401.3 million pre-tax non-cash impairment charge to reduce the carrying value of Umbro's goodwill, intangible and other assets. On an after-tax basis, the charge totaled $240.7 million, which decreased diluted earnings per share by $0.49.

The impairment charge is a result of both the deteriorating global consumer markets, particularly in the United Kingdom, Umbro's primary market, and reflects management's decision to adjust planned investment in the Brand. In addition, the deterioration of the financial markets has reduced both the present value of future cash flows and the market value of comparable businesses. While management continues to view Umbro as a compelling, complementary brand within the NIKE, Inc. portfolio, it was concluded the fair value of its Umbro investment has declined as forecasted profits and cash flows have fallen below amounts originally projected at the date of acquisition.
