"Nike's second quarter revenues and earnings per share reached all-time high levels as a result of solid performance across our global portfolio. Our businesses in the United States and emerging markets such as China, Russia and Turkey, combined with favorable European exchange rates, helped drive much of this growth."(i) Knight added, "With the first half of our fiscal year in the books, we remain confident that our business strategy and consistent execution will allow us to deliver on our goals of healthy, profitable growth."(i) Futures Orders The Company reported worldwide futures orders for athletic footwear and apparel, scheduled for delivery from December 2004 through April 2005, totaling USD$4.9 billion, 9.1 percent higher than such orders reported for the same period last year. Currency exchange rates had no net impact to this growth.(i) By region, futures orders for the U.S. were up 10 percent; Europe increased six percent; Asia Pacific grew 14 percent; and the Americas increased 15 percent. In Europe, one point of the increase was due to currency exchange rates. Currency exchange reduced the growth in Asia Pacific and the Americas by approximately one point and three points, respectively.(i) Knight continued, "Consumer demand for Nike products continues to grow, as evidenced by our sixth consecutive quarter of strong futures results. The U.S. market has been particularly robust, reporting futures growth of 10 percent. The Nike brand is healthier than ever and our innovative products continue to excite consumers around the world."(i) Regional Highlights U.S. During the second quarter, U.S. revenues increased five percent to USD$1.13 billion versus USD$1.08 billion for the second quarter of fiscal 2004.
