• Voter paralysis

    With so much tilting voters against change, democratic reason is the loser, says Solly Moeng.

  • The power of perseverance

    True grit is a reliable predictor of who will achieve success in life, says Ian Mann.

  • It's the system

    The system sucks and it’s being used far too often as an excuse, says Mandi Smallhorne.

Nike second quarter net income falls

Dec 21 2012 09:54

Oregon - Nike says its second quarter net income fell 18% as the European economy remained weak and growth slowed in China. But the results topped Wall Street expectations and Nike's stock rose more than 4% in aftermarket trading.

The world's largest athletic gear maker says net income for the three months ended Nov 30, fell to $384m, or $1.14 per share. That compares with $469m, or $1.03 per share, last year when it had about 3% more shares outstanding.

Revenue rose 7% to $5.96bn.

Analysts expected $1 per share on revenue of $6.01bn.

Higher selling prices and easing raw material costs were offset by higher labour costs and fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. Futures orders rose 6%.
