NIKE, Inc. Reports Fiscal 2020 First Quarter Results

BEAVERTON, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NIKE, Inc. (NYSE:NKE) today reported fiscal 2020 financial results for its first quarter ended August 31, 2019.

Revenue increased to $10.7 billion in the first quarter, up 7 percent on a reported basis and up 10 percent on a currency-neutral basis*, driven by growth across all geographies.

“Our strong start to FY20 highlighted the depth and balance of NIKE’s complete offense,” said Mark Parker, Chairman, President and CEO, NIKE, Inc. “NIKE’s strong product innovation, combined with our industry-leading digital experiences, continue to deepen our consumer relationships around the world.”**

Diluted earnings per share for the quarter was $0.86, an increase of 28 percent driven primarily by strong revenue growth and gross margin expansion.

“Our targeted strategic investments are accelerating NIKE’s digital transformation and extending our competitive advantage,” said Andy Campion, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, NIKE, Inc. “Even amidst the increasingly volatile macroeconomic and geopolitical environment, we expect our unrelenting focus on better serving the consumer to continue fueling strong, broad-based growth across our global portfolio.”**

First Quarter Income Statement Review

  • Revenues for NIKE, Inc. increased 7 percent to $10.7 billion, up 10 percent on a currency-neutral basis.
    • Revenues for the NIKE Brand were $10.1 billion, up 10 percent on a currency-neutral basis driven by growth across NIKE Direct and wholesale, key categories including Sportswear and the Jordan Brand, and continued growth across footwear and apparel.
    • Revenues for Converse were $555 million, up 8 percent on a currency-neutral basis, mainly driven by double-digit growth in Asia and through digital globally, which was partially offset by declines in the U.S.
  • Gross margin increased 150 basis points to 45.7 percent primarily due to higher average selling prices and margin expansion in NIKE Direct, partially offset by impacts from changes in foreign currency exchange rates and higher product costs.
  • Selling and administrative expense increased 9 percent to $3.3 billion. Demand creation expense was $1.0 billion, up 6 percent primarily driven by higher advertising expenses and sports marketing investments. Operating overhead expense increased 10 percent to $2.3 billion driven by continued investments in transformational capabilities, particularly in NIKE Direct and global operations.
  • The effective tax rate was 12.4 percent, compared to 14 percent for the same period last year, primarily due to discrete items which favorably impacted the quarter.
  • Net income increased 25 percent to $1.4 billion driven primarily by strong revenue growth and gross margin expansion while diluted earnings per share increased 28 percent to $0.86 reflecting a 2 percent decline in the weighted average diluted common shares outstanding.

August 31, 2019 Balance Sheet Review

  • Inventories for NIKE, Inc. were $5.8 billion, up 12 percent compared to the prior year period, reflecting strong consumer demand globally, and to a lesser extent, the impact from changes in foreign currency exchange rates.
  • Cash and equivalents and short-term investments were $3.6 billion, $625 million lower than last year as share repurchases, dividends, and investments in infrastructure more than offset proceeds from net income.

NIKE, Inc. adopted Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-02 Leases (Topic 842) in the first quarter. In connection with the adoption, the Company’s balance sheet as of August 31, 2019 reflects the addition of operating lease right-of-use assets and operating lease liabilities.

Share Repurchases

During the first quarter, NIKE, Inc. repurchased 11.9 million shares for approximately $995 million as part of the four-year, $15 billion program approved by the Board of Directors in June 2018. As of August 31, 2019, a total of 23.5 million shares had been repurchased under this program for approximately $2.0 billion.

1 The percent change has been calculated using actual exchange rates in use during the comparative prior year period to enhance the visibility of the underlying business trends by excluding the impact of translation arising from foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, which is considered a non-GAAP financial measure.
2 Global Brand Divisions revenues are primarily attributable to NIKE Brand licensing businesses that are not part of a geographic operating segment.
3 Corporate revenues primarily consist of foreign currency hedge gains and losses related to revenues generated by entities within the NIKE Brand geographic operating segments and Converse but managed through the Company's central foreign exchange risk management program.
