The company’s revenue for the fourth quarter has increased by 12.8% to a value of $ 9.8 billion. According to the forecasts, it should amount to 9.4 billion US dollars.

It will be the year 2020, when Nike is going to bring the revenue to $ 50 billion. In the financial year 2018, this indicator has grown by 6%. Annual revenues have reached $ 36.4 billion.

Direct sales through the company’s websites and Amazon have facilitated the growth of the annual revenues. They have grown by 15% to 10.4 billion US dollars. Wholesale has also shown the growth, but relatively small – by 4%.

Forecasts of the company for this financial year: + 7-9% of the revenue.

Due to the strong reporting, the shares of Nike have already grown by 8% on electronic trading. So, you can expect an opening at a high mark at the main session on Friday.  This year the value of the company has grown by 14.5% and now the company’s capitalization is 115 billion US dollars.
