Nike came out with their 10K annual report maybe 10 days ago. Because we’re in the habit of focusing on the press release and the conference call which happens much sooner, nobody seems to have paid any attention to this 145 page document. But never fear, I’m a glutton for punishment and there were a few interesting facts I thought I might provide.
You’ll excuse me if I don’t do my usual financial analysis. With hardly any long term debt (given their balance sheet though some of us probably think $400 million is a lot), a few billions in cash, and just over $19 billion in revenue, I just don’t think I’d discover anything useful if I stared squint eyed at their cash flow statement for very long.
