Nike with revenue growth
The sportwear giant reported financial results for its fiscal 2019 fourth quarter and full year. Revenue increased in both periods, mainly as a result of strategic investments in innovation and digital
FY19 was a pivotal year for Nike as we continue to bring our Consumer Direct Offense to life throughout the marketplace”, commented Mark Parker, Chairman, President and CEO, adding: “Our distinctive innovation and digital advantage led to accelerated growth across our complete portfolio, while our Brand fuelled deeper relationships with consumers around the globe.”

“Reflecting on our FY19 performance, it is clear that growth is paramount at Nike, and that our strong growth is being driven by strategic transformation”, commented Andy Campion, Executive Vice President and CFO, NIKE, Inc., adding: “Amid foreign exchange volatility, our double-digit currency-neutral revenue growth and expanding ROIC showcase Nike’s unrivaled ability to create extraordinary value for consumers and shareholders over the long term.”

Revenue for Nike increased by 4% totalling 10.2 billion US dollars, up by 10% on a currency-neutral basis. Revenue for the Nike brand reached 9.7 billion US dollars, up by 10% on a currency-neutral basis, driven by growth across Nike Direct and wholesale, key categories including Sportswear, Jordan and Basketball, and continued growth across footwear and apparel. Revenue for Converse totalled 491 million US dollars, flat to prior year on a currency-neutral basis, mainly driven by double-digit growth in Asia and digital which was offset by declines in the US and Europe.
