Nike Announces $9.8 Billion Q4 Revenue & $15 Billion Share Repurchase Program

Today Nike announced its fiscal 2018 fourth quarter and full year reports. Along with a planned $15 billion share repurchase program, the Swoosh made public a 13 percent fourth quarter revenue increase, which saw the sportswear giant ring in $9.8 billion.

The big increase in revenue was reportedly down to double-digit increases in NIKE Direct, international geographies, Sportswear, Global Football and growth in North America, a market they were previously falling behind competitors in.

Converse on the other hand, saw revenue fall 14 percent to $512 million.

Total revenue for Nike during fiscal 2018 increased 6 percent, totalling $36.4 billion

According to Nike, “strong revenue growth, gross margin expansion, a lower tax rate and a lower average share count” were behind diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter rising 15 percent to $0.69.

“Our new innovation is winning with consumers, driving significant momentum in our international geographies and a return to growth in North America,” said Mark Parker. “Fueled by a complete digital transformation of our company end-to-end, this year set the foundation for Nike’s next wave of long-term, sustainable growth and profitability.”

The aforementioned share repurchase program will run over four years and start after the current $12 billion repurchase program is completed within fiscal 2019.

Harmless Harvest, the organic coconut water industry pioneer, is kicking off a bold new ad campaign that deliberately points out what differentiates them – flipping the switch to prove why some of its perceived criticisms are actually the brand’s strongest assets. With sensational headlines like Harmless Is Expensive, Harmless Is Perishable, and Harmless Is Not Perfect, Harmless Harvest is reinforcing the unique traits that play into the brand’s commitment to quality, integrity, and community stewardship. The “Harmless Is” campaign is kicking off in May with out of home and transit media buys on some of NYC and LA’s most popular buildings, billboards, and subway lines – including Union Square, Lafayette and the L train.
