    For the fiscal year ended May 31, 2005, revenues increased 12 percent to US$13.7 billion, compared to US$12.3 billion in fiscal year 2004. Changes in currency exchange rates contributed three percentage points of this growth, while the acquisition of Converse and Starter added one point. Full year net income was up 28 percent to US$1.2 billion, or US$4.48 per diluted share, versus US$945.6 million, or US$3.51 per diluted share, in 2004.

    Fourth quarter revenues increased seven percent to US$3.7 billion, versus US$3.5 billion for the same period last year. Three percentage points of this growth were the result of changes in currency exchange rates. Fourth quarter net income was up 15 percent to US$349.5 million, or US$1.30 per diluted share, compared to US$305.0 million, or US$1.13 per diluted share in the prior year.

    Commenting on the company's results, William D. Perez, Nike, Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer said, "Fiscal 2005 was a great year. The strength of the Nike brand around the world, the breadth of our Nike, Inc. portfolio, and the quality of our management team contributed to another year of consistent, profitable growth for our shareholders. The Nike brand is exceptionally strong, driving full-year revenue gains across all regions and product lines, while Converse and Cole Haan led the growth in our portfolio of other businesses. Today's record earnings were driven by healthy revenue growth and the highest gross margin in the company's history."

    Perez continued, "Looking ahead, our worldwide futures orders for athletic footwear and apparel are strong, up 9.5 percent, with all regions posting increases and U.S. footwear remaining particularly healthy. We're very pleased with the brand strength reflected in these futures results and we see continued potential for profitable expansion across our portfolio of businesses."(a)

    The Company reported worldwide futures orders for athletic footwear and apparel, scheduled for delivery from June through November 2005, totaling US$6.3 billion, 9.5 percent higher than such orders reported for the same period last year.

Changes in currency exchange rates had a favorable impact of two percentage points in Europe and Asia Pacific.
