NOTE 1 — Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements reflect all normal adjustments which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair statement of the results of operations for the interim period. The year-end Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet data as of May 31, 2014 was derived from audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). The interim financial information and notes thereto should be read in conjunction with the Company’s latest Annual Report on Form 10-K. The results of operations for the three months ended August 31, 2014 are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the entire year.
Reclassifications
Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to fiscal 2015 presentation.
Revisions
The Company has historically capitalized costs associated with internally generated patents and trademarks and amortized these assets over the legal term of the patents and trademarks. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, management determined that these capitalized costs were not accurately identified with specific patent or trademark assets, and therefore, concluded that amounts previously capitalized should have been expensed as incurred. Accordingly, the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been revised to correctly expense costs associated with internally developed patents and trademarks in the period incurred and to reverse expenses for amortization of previously capitalized costs. The revisions resulted in a decrease in Net income of $1 million for the three months ended August 31, 2013. Cash provided by operations decreased $3 million while Cash used by investing activities decreased $3 million for the three months ended August 31, 2013.
Also, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, the Company revised certain prior year amounts to eliminate intercompany transfers of short-term investments, to correctly reflect the purchases, sales and maturities of short-term investments related to the Company's hedging program involving U.S. Dollar denominated available-for-sale securities and to correctly classify certain investment holdings as Short-term investments. Cash and equivalents decreased $275 million and Short-term investments increased $275 million at August 31, 2013. In the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows for the three months ended August 31, 2013, the revisions resulted in a net increase in Purchases of short-term investments of $89 million and a net decrease in Sales of short-term investments of $186 million, which caused a net increase of $275 million in Cash used by investing activities.
Certain prior year amounts have also been revised in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows to correctly recognize the cash flow impacts of certain inventory amounts held by third parties, which were identified during the third quarter of fiscal 2014 and resulted in cash flow impacts of $2 million for both Inventories and Accrued liabilities for the three months ended August 31, 2013. This revision had no impact on Cash provided by operations or Net increase (decrease) in cash and equivalents.
The Company also revised certain prior period amounts in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows to correctly reflect non-cash additions to property, plant and equipment, which were identified during the second quarter of fiscal 2014. For the three months ended August 31, 2013, this revision increased Cash provided by operations and increased Cash used by investing activities, each by $30 million.
The Company assessed the materiality of these misstatements on prior periods’ financial statements in accordance with SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin ("SAB") No. 99, Materiality, codified in Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 250, Presentation of Financial Statements, and concluded that these misstatements were not material to any prior annual or interim periods. Accordingly, in accordance with ASC 250 (SAB No. 108, Considering the Effects of Prior Year Misstatements when Quantifying Misstatements in Current Year Financial Statements), the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements as of August 31, 2013, and for the three months then ended, which are presented herein, have been revised. The following are selected line items from the Company's Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements illustrating the effect of these corrections and the correction of other immaterial errors:

Recently Issued Accounting Standards
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued an accounting standards update that replaces existing revenue recognition guidance. Among other things, the updated guidance requires companies to recognize revenue in a way that depicts the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The new guidance is effective for the Company beginning June 1, 2017 and early adoption is not permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the effect the guidance will have on the Consolidated Financial Statements.
NOTE 2 — Inventories
Inventory balances of $4,030 million and $3,947 million at August 31, 2014 and May 31, 2014, respectively, were substantially all finished goods.

NOTE 4 — Fair Value Measurements
The Company measures certain financial assets and liabilities at fair value on a recurring basis, including derivatives and available-for-sale securities. Fair value is the price the Company would receive to sell an asset or pay to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction with a market participant at the measurement date. The Company uses the three-level hierarchy established by the FASB that prioritizes fair value measurements based on the types of inputs used for the various valuation techniques (market approach, income approach and cost approach).
The levels of the fair value hierarchy are described below:
Level 1: Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2: Inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly; these include quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets and quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets that are not active.
Level 3: Unobservable inputs for which there is little or no market data available, which require the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions.
The Company’s assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurement in its entirety requires judgment and considers factors specific to the asset or liability. Financial assets and liabilities are classified in their entirety based on the most conservative level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.
Pricing vendors are utilized for certain Level 1 and Level 2 investments. These vendors either provide a quoted market price in an active market or use observable inputs without applying significant adjustments in their pricing. Observable inputs include broker quotes, interest rates and yield curves observable at commonly quoted intervals, volatilities and credit risks. The Company’s fair value processes include controls that are designed to ensure appropriate fair values are recorded. These controls include a comparison of fair values to another independent pricing vendor.
The following tables present information about the Company’s financial assets measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of August 31, 2014 and May 31, 2014, and indicate the level in the fair value hierarchy in which the Company classifies the fair value measurement.

The Company’s derivative financial instruments are subject to master netting arrangements that allow for the offset of assets and liabilities in the event of default or early termination of the contract. The Company elects to record the gross assets and liabilities of its derivative financial instruments in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. If the derivative financial instruments had been netted in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets, the asset and liability positions each would have been reduced by $61 million. No material amounts of collateral were received or posted on the Company’s derivative assets and liabilities as of August 31, 2014.

The Company’s derivative financial instruments are subject to master netting arrangements that allow for the offset of assets and liabilities in the event of default or early termination of the contract. The Company elects to record the gross assets and liabilities of its derivative financial instruments in the Consolidated Balance Sheets. If the derivative financial instruments had been netted in the Consolidated Balance Sheets, the asset and liability positions each would have been reduced by $63 million. No material amounts of collateral were received or posted on the Company’s derivative assets and liabilities as of May 31, 2014.
Available-for-sale securities comprise investments in U.S. Treasury and Agency securities, money market funds, corporate commercial paper and bonds. These securities are valued using market prices on both active markets (Level 1) and less active markets (Level 2). The gross realized gains and losses on sales of available-for-sale securities were immaterial for the three months ended August 31, 2014 and 2013. Unrealized gains and losses on available-for-sale securities included in Other comprehensive income were immaterial as of August 31, 2014 and May 31, 2014.
The Company regularly reviews its available-for-sale securities for other-than-temporary impairment. For the three months ended August 31, 2014 the Company did not consider any of its securities to be other-than-temporarily impaired and accordingly, did not recognize any impairment losses.

11


As of August 31, 2014, the Company held $1,674 million of available-for-sale securities with maturity dates within one year from the purchase date and $602 million with maturity dates over one year and less than five years from the purchase date within Short-term investments. As of May 31, 2014, the Company held $2,287 million of available-for-sale securities with maturity dates within one year from purchase date and $635 million with maturity dates over one year and less than five years from purchase date within Short-term investments.
Included in Interest expense (income), net for each of the three months ended August 31, 2014 and 2013 was interest income related to the Company's available-for-sale securities of $1 million.
The Company’s Level 3 assets comprise investments in certain non-marketable preferred stock. These Level 3 investments are an immaterial portion of the Company's portfolio. Changes in Level 3 investment assets were immaterial during the three months ended August 31, 2014 and the year ended May 31, 2014.
Derivative financial instruments include foreign exchange forwards and options, embedded derivatives and interest rate swap contracts. Refer to Note 8 — Risk Management and Derivatives for additional detail.
No transfers among the levels within the fair value hierarchy occurred during the three months ended August 31, 2014.
As of August 31, 2014 and May 31, 2014, the Company had no assets or liabilities that were required to be measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis.
Financial Assets and Liabilities Not Recorded at Fair Value
The Company’s long-term debt is recorded at adjusted cost, net of amortized premiums and discounts and interest rate swap fair value adjustments. The fair value of long-term debt is estimated based upon quoted prices for similar instruments or quoted prices for identical instruments in inactive markets (Level 2). The fair value of the Company’s long-term debt, including the current portion, was approximately $1,177 million at August 31, 2014 and $1,154 million at May 31, 2014.
The carrying amounts reflected in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets for Notes payable approximate fair value.
NOTE 5 — Income Taxes
The effective tax rate was 21.7% and 25.0% for the three month periods ended August 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. The decrease in the Company’s effective tax rate was primarily due to the resolution of audits and an increase in the proportion of earnings from operations outside of the United States, which are generally subject to a lower tax rate.
As of August 31, 2014, total gross unrecognized tax benefits, excluding related interest and penalties, were $473 million, $253 million of which would affect the Company’s effective tax rate if recognized in future periods. As of May 31, 2014, total gross unrecognized tax benefits, excluding related interest and penalties, were $506 million. The liability for payment of interest and penalties decreased $7 million during the three months ended August 31, 2014. As of August 31, 2014 and May 31, 2014, accrued interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions were $160 million and $167 million, respectively (excluding federal benefit).
The Company is subject to taxation primarily in the United States, China, the Netherlands and Brazil, as well as various other state and foreign jurisdictions. The Company has concluded substantially all U.S. federal income tax matters through fiscal 2010. The Company is currently under audit by the Internal Revenue Service for the 2011 through 2014 tax years. Many issues are at an advanced stage in the examination process, including the validation of foreign tax credits taken. The Company’s major foreign jurisdictions, China, the Netherlands and Brazil, have concluded substantially all income tax matters through calendar 2005, fiscal 2008 and calendar 2008, respectively. Although the timing of resolution of audits is not certain, the Company evaluates all domestic and foreign audit issues in the aggregate, along with the expiration of applicable statutes of limitations, and estimates that it is reasonably possible the total gross unrecognized tax benefits could decrease by up to $71 million within the next 12 months.
NOTE 6 — Stock-Based Compensation
In 1990, the Board of Directors adopted, and the shareholders approved, the NIKE, Inc. 1990 Stock Incentive Plan (the “1990 Plan”). The 1990 Plan provides for the issuance of up to 326 million previously unissued shares of Class B Common Stock in connection with stock options and other awards granted under the 1990 Plan. The 1990 Plan authorizes the grant of non-statutory stock options, incentive stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, restricted stock units and performance-based awards. The exercise price for stock options and stock appreciation rights may not be less than the fair market value of the underlying shares on the date of grant. A committee of the Board of Directors administers the 1990 Plan. The committee has the authority to determine the employees to whom awards will be made, the amount of the awards and the other terms and conditions of the awards. Substantially all stock option grants outstanding under the 1990 Plan were granted in the first quarter of each fiscal year, vest ratably over four years and expire 10 years from the date of grant.
In addition to the 1990 Plan, the Company gives employees the right to purchase shares at a discount to the market price under employee stock purchase plans (“ESPPs”). Employees are eligible to participate through payroll deductions of up to 10% of their compensation. At the end of each 6-month offering period, shares are purchased by the participants at 85% of the lower of the fair market value at the beginning or the end of the offering period.
The Company accounts for stock-based compensation by estimating the fair value of options granted under the 1990 Plan and employees’ purchase rights under the ESPPs using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The Company recognizes this fair value as Operating overhead expense over the vesting period using the straight-line method.

Expense for stock options includes the expense associated with stock appreciation rights. Accelerated stock option expense is recorded for employees eligible for accelerated stock option vesting upon retirement. Accelerated stock option expense for the three month periods ended August 31, 2014 and 2013 was $4 million for each respective period.
As of August 31, 2014, the Company had $285 million of unrecognized compensation costs from stock options, net of estimated forfeitures, to be recognized in Operating overhead expense over a weighted average remaining period of 2.7 years.
The weighted average fair value per share of the options granted during the three month periods ended August 31, 2014 and 2013, as computed using the Black-Scholes pricing model, was $16.91 and $14.85, respectively. The weighted average assumptions used to estimate these fair values are as follows:

The Company estimates the expected volatility based on the implied volatility in market traded options on the Company’s common stock with a term greater than one year, along with other factors. The weighted average expected life of options is based on an analysis of historical and expected future exercise patterns. The interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury (constant maturity) risk-free rate in effect at the date of grant for periods corresponding with the expected term of the options.
NOTE 7 — Earnings Per Share
The following is a reconciliation from basic earnings per share to diluted earnings per share. Options to purchase an additional 9.2 million and 7.9 million shares of common stock were outstanding at August 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively, but were not included in the computation of diluted earnings per share because the options were anti-dilutive.

NOTE 8 — Risk Management and Derivatives
The Company is exposed to global market risks, including the effect of changes in foreign currency exchange rates and interest rates, and uses derivatives to manage financial exposures that occur in the normal course of business. The Company does not hold or issue derivatives for trading or speculative purposes.
The Company may elect to designate certain derivatives as hedging instruments under the accounting standards for derivatives and hedging. The Company formally documents all relationships between designated hedging instruments and hedged items as well as its risk management objectives and strategies for undertaking hedge transactions. This process includes linking all derivatives designated as hedges to either recognized assets or liabilities or forecasted transactions.
The majority of derivatives outstanding as of August 31, 2014 are designated as cash flow or fair value hedges. All derivatives are recognized in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet at fair value and classified based on the instrument’s maturity date. The total notional amount of outstanding derivatives as of August 31, 2014 was approximately $13 billion, which primarily comprises cash flow hedges for Euro/U.S. Dollar, British Pound/Euro, and Japanese Yen/U.S. Dollar currency pairs. As of August 31, 2014, there were outstanding currency forward contracts with maturities up to 21 months.

All interest rate swap agreements meet the shortcut method requirements under the accounting standards for derivatives and hedging. Accordingly, changes in the fair values of the interest rate swap agreements are considered to exactly offset changes in the fair value of the underlying long-term debt. Refer to “Fair Value Hedges” in this note for additional detail.
Refer to Note 3 — Accrued Liabilities for derivative instruments recorded in Accrued liabilities, Note 4 — Fair Value Measurements for a description of how the above financial instruments are valued, and Note 9 — Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income for additional information on changes in Other comprehensive income for the three months ended August 31, 2014 and 2013.
Cash Flow Hedges
The purpose of the Company’s foreign currency hedging activities is to protect the Company from the risk that the eventual cash flows resulting from transactions in foreign currencies will be adversely affected by changes in exchange rates. Foreign currency exposures that the Company may elect to hedge in this manner include product cost exposures, non-functional currency denominated external and intercompany revenues, selling and administrative expenses, investments in U.S. Dollar-denominated available-for-sale debt securities and certain other intercompany transactions.
Product cost exposures are primarily generated through non-functional currency denominated product purchases and the foreign currency adjustment program described below. NIKE entities primarily purchase products in two ways: (1) Certain NIKE entities purchase product from the NIKE Trading Company (“NTC”), a wholly owned sourcing hub that buys NIKE branded products from third party factories, predominantly in U.S. Dollars. The NTC, whose functional currency is the U.S. Dollar, then sells the products to NIKE entities in their respective functional currencies. When the NTC sells to a NIKE entity with a different functional currency, the result is a foreign currency exposure for the NTC. (2) Other NIKE entities purchase product directly from third party factories in U.S. Dollars. These purchases generate a foreign currency exposure for those NIKE entities with a functional currency other than the U.S. Dollar.
The Company operates a foreign currency adjustment program with certain factories. The program is designed to more effectively manage foreign currency risk by assuming certain of the factories’ foreign currency exposures, some of which are natural offsets to the Company's existing foreign currency exposures. Under this program, the Company’s payments to these factories are adjusted for rate fluctuations in the basket of currencies (“factory currency exposure index”) in which the labor, materials and overhead costs incurred by the factories in the production of NIKE branded products (“factory input costs”) are denominated. For the portion of the indices denominated in the local or functional currency of the factory, the Company may elect to place formally designated cash flow hedges. For all currencies within the indices, excluding the U.S. Dollar and the local or functional currency of the factory, an embedded derivative contract is created upon the factory’s acceptance of NIKE’s purchase order. Embedded derivative contracts are separated from the related purchase order, and their accounting treatment is described further below.
The Company’s policy permits the utilization of derivatives to reduce its foreign currency exposures where internal netting or other strategies cannot be effectively employed. Hedged transactions are denominated primarily in Euros, British Pounds and Japanese Yen. Typically, the Company may enter into hedge contracts starting up to 12 to 24 months in advance of the forecasted transaction and may place incremental hedges up to 100% of the exposure by the time the forecasted transaction occurs.
All changes in fair value of derivatives designated as cash flow hedges, excluding any ineffective portion, are recorded in Other comprehensive income until Net income is affected by the variability of cash flows of the hedged transaction. In most cases, amounts recorded in Other comprehensive income will be released to Net income sometime after the maturity of the related derivative. Effective hedge results are classified within the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income in the same manner as the underlying exposure, with the results of hedges of non-functional currency denominated revenues and product cost exposures, excluding embedded derivatives as described below, recorded in Revenues or Cost of sales, when the underlying hedged transaction affects consolidated Net income. Results of hedges of selling and administrative expense are recorded together with those costs when the related expense is recorded. Results of hedges of anticipated purchases and sales of U.S. Dollar-denominated available-for-sale securities are recorded in Other expense (income), net when the securities are sold. Results of hedges of certain anticipated intercompany transactions are recorded in Other expense (income), net when the transaction occurs. The Company classifies the cash flows at settlement from these designated cash flow hedge derivatives in the same category as the cash flows from the related hedged items, generally within the Cash provided by operations component of the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.
Premiums paid on options are initially recorded as deferred charges. The Company assesses the effectiveness of options based on the total cash flows method and records total changes in the options’ fair value to Other comprehensive income to the degree they are effective.
The Company formally assesses, both at a hedge’s inception and on an ongoing basis, whether the derivatives that are used in the hedging transaction have been highly effective in offsetting changes in the cash flows of hedged items and whether those derivatives may be expected to remain highly effective in future periods. Effectiveness for cash flow hedges is assessed based on changes in forward rates. Ineffectiveness was not material for the three months ended August 31, 2014 and 2013.
The Company discontinues hedge accounting prospectively when: (1) it determines that the derivative is no longer highly effective in offsetting changes in the cash flows of a hedged item (including hedged items such as firm commitments or forecasted transactions); (2) the derivative expires or is sold, terminated or exercised; (3) it is no longer probable that the forecasted transaction will occur; or (4) management determines that designating the derivative as a hedging instrument is no longer appropriate.

15


When the Company discontinues hedge accounting because it is no longer probable that the forecasted transaction will occur in the originally expected period, but is expected to occur within an additional two-month period of time thereafter, the gain or loss on the derivative remains in Accumulated other comprehensive income and is reclassified to Net income when the forecasted transaction affects consolidated Net income. However, if it is probable that a forecasted transaction will not occur by the end of the originally specified time period or within an additional two-month period of time thereafter, the gains and losses that were accumulated in Other comprehensive income will be recognized immediately in Other expense (income), net. In all situations in which hedge accounting is discontinued and the derivative remains outstanding, the Company will carry the derivative at its fair value on the balance sheet, recognizing future changes in the fair value in Other expense (income), net. For the three months ended August 31, 2014 and 2013, the amounts recorded in Other expense (income), net as a result of the discontinuance of cash flow hedging because the forecasted transaction was no longer probable of occurring were immaterial.
As of August 31, 2014, $104 million of deferred net gains (net of tax) on both outstanding and matured derivatives accumulated in Other comprehensive income were expected to be reclassified to Net income during the next 12 months concurrent with the underlying hedged transactions also being recorded in Net income. Actual amounts ultimately reclassified to Net income are dependent on the exchange rates in effect when derivative contracts that are currently outstanding mature. As of August 31, 2014, the maximum term over which the Company is hedging exposures to the variability of cash flows for its forecasted transactions was 21 months.
Fair Value Hedges
The Company is also exposed to the risk of changes in the fair value of certain fixed-rate debt attributable to changes in interest rates. Derivatives currently used by the Company to hedge this risk are receive-fixed, pay-variable interest rate swaps. As of August 31, 2014, all interest rate swap agreements are designated as fair value hedges of the related long-term debt and meet the shortcut method requirements under the accounting standards for derivatives and hedging. Accordingly, changes in the fair values of the interest rate swap agreements are considered to exactly offset changes in the fair value of the underlying long-term debt. The cash flows associated with the Company’s fair value hedges are periodic interest payments while the swaps are outstanding, which are reflected within the Cash provided by operations component of the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. The Company recorded no ineffectiveness from its interest rate swaps designated as fair value hedges for the three months ended August 31, 2014 or 2013.
Net Investment Hedges
The Company has hedged and may, in the future, hedge the risk of variability in foreign-currency-denominated net investments in wholly owned international operations. All changes in fair value of the derivatives designated as net investment hedges, except ineffective portions, are reported in the cumulative translation adjustment component of Other comprehensive income along with the foreign currency translation adjustments on those investments. The Company classifies the cash flows at settlement of its net investment hedges within the Cash provided (used) by investing activities component of the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. The Company assesses hedge effectiveness based on changes in forward rates. The Company recorded no ineffectiveness from its net investment hedges for the three months ended August 31, 2014 or 2013.
Embedded Derivatives
As part of the foreign currency adjustment program described above, an embedded derivative contract is created upon the factory’s acceptance of NIKE’s purchase order for currencies within the factory currency exposure indices that are neither the U.S. Dollar nor the local or functional currency of the factory. Embedded derivative contracts are treated as foreign currency forward contracts that are bifurcated from the related purchase order and recorded at fair value as a derivative asset or liability on the balance sheet with their corresponding change in fair value recognized in Other expense (income), net from the date a purchase order is accepted by a factory through the date the purchase price is no longer subject to foreign currency fluctuations. At August 31, 2014, the notional amount of embedded derivatives outstanding was approximately $127 million.
Undesignated Derivative Instruments
The Company may elect to enter into foreign exchange forwards to mitigate the change in fair value of specific assets and liabilities on the balance sheet and/or the embedded derivative contracts explained above. These forwards are not designated as hedging instruments under the accounting standards for derivatives and hedging. Accordingly, these undesignated instruments are recorded at fair value as a derivative asset or liability on the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets with their corresponding change in fair value recognized in Other expense (income), net, together with the re-measurement gain or loss from the hedged balance sheet position or embedded derivative contract. The Company classifies the cash flows at settlement from undesignated instruments in the same category as the cash flows from the related hedged items, generally within the Cash provided by operations component of the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.
Credit Risk
The Company is exposed to credit-related losses in the event of nonperformance by counterparties to hedging instruments. The counterparties to all derivative transactions are major financial institutions with investment grade credit ratings. However, this does not eliminate the Company’s exposure to credit risk with these institutions. This credit risk is limited to the unrealized gains in such contracts should any of these counterparties fail to perform as contracted. To manage this risk, the Company has established strict counterparty credit guidelines that are continually monitored.

16


The Company’s derivative contracts contain credit risk related contingent features designed to protect against significant deterioration in counterparties’ creditworthiness and their ultimate ability to settle outstanding derivative contracts in the normal course of business. The Company’s bilateral credit related contingent features generally require the owing entity, either the Company or the derivative counterparty, to post collateral for the portion of the fair value in excess of $50 million should the fair value of outstanding derivatives per counterparty be greater than $50 million. Additionally, a certain level of decline in credit rating of either the Company or the counterparty could also trigger collateral requirements. As of August 31, 2014, the Company was in compliance with all credit risk related contingent features and the aggregate fair value of its derivative instruments with credit risk related contingent features in a net liability position was $3 million. Accordingly, the Company was not required to post any collateral as a result of these contingent features. Further, as of August 31, 2014, those counterparties which were required to post collateral complied with such requirements. Given the considerations described above, the Company considers the impact of the risk of counterparty default to be immaterial.

NOTE 10 — Operating Segments
The Company’s operating segments are evidence of the structure of the Company's internal organization. The NIKE Brand segments are defined by geographic regions for operations participating in NIKE Brand sales activity and also include the results of NIKE Golf and Hurley.
Each NIKE Brand geographic segment operates predominantly in one industry: the design, development, marketing and selling of athletic footwear, apparel and equipment. The Company’s reportable operating segments for the NIKE Brand are: North America, Western Europe, Central & Eastern Europe, Greater China, Japan and Emerging Markets. The Company’s NIKE Brand Direct to Consumer operations are managed within each geographic operating segment. Converse is also a reportable segment for NIKE, Inc., and operates in one industry: the design, marketing, licensing and selling of casual sneakers, apparel and accessories.
Global Brand Divisions is included within the NIKE Brand for presentation purposes to align with the way management views the Company. Global Brand Divisions primarily represent NIKE Brand licensing businesses that are not part of a geographic operating segment, demand creation and operating overhead expenses that are centrally managed for the NIKE Brand and costs associated with product development and supply chain operations.
Corporate consists largely of unallocated general and administrative expenses, including expenses associated with centrally managed departments; depreciation and amortization related to the Company’s headquarters; unallocated insurance and benefit programs, including stock-based compensation; and certain foreign currency gains and losses, certain corporate eliminations and other items.
The primary financial measure used by the Company to evaluate performance of individual operating segments is earnings before interest and taxes (commonly referred to as “EBIT”), which represents Net income before Interest expense (income), net and Income tax expense in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income. Reconciling items for EBIT represent corporate expense items that are not allocated to the operating segments for management reporting.
As part of the Company's centrally managed foreign exchange risk management program, standard foreign currency rates are assigned twice per year to each NIKE Brand entity in the Company's geographic operating segments and Converse. These rates are set approximately nine months in advance of the future selling season based on average market spot rates in the calendar month preceding the date they are established. Inventories and Cost of sales for geographic operating segments and Converse reflect use of these standard rates to record non-functional currency product purchases in the entity’s functional currency. Differences between assigned standard foreign currency rates and actual market rates are included in Corporate, together with foreign currency hedge gains and losses generated from the Company's centrally managed foreign exchange risk management program and other conversion gains and losses.
Accounts receivable, Inventories and Property, plant and equipment, net for operating segments are regularly reviewed by management and are therefore provided below.
Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to fiscal 2015 presentation.

NOTE 11 — Commitments and Contingencies
At August 31, 2014, the Company had letters of credit outstanding totaling $117 million. These letters of credit were issued primarily for the purchase of inventory and guarantees of the Company’s performance under certain self-insurance and other programs.
During the year ended May 31, 2013, the Company divested of Cole Haan. Preexisting guarantees of certain Cole Haan lease payments remained in place after the sale; the maximum exposure under the guarantees was $30 million at August 31, 2014. The fair value of the guarantees is not material.
There have been no other significant subsequent developments relating to the commitments and contingencies reported on the Company's latest Annual Report on Form 10-K.

ITEM 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
In the first quarter of fiscal 2015, NIKE, Inc. Revenues increased 15% to $8.0 billion; foreign currency exchange rates did not have a significant impact on our consolidated reported revenue growth. We delivered Net income of $962 million and Diluted earnings per common share of $1.09, 23% and 27% higher, respectively, than the first quarter of fiscal 2014.
Income before income taxes increased 18% compared to the first quarter of the prior year due to increases in revenues and gross margin, which more than offset higher selling and administrative expense as a percentage of revenues. The NIKE Brand, which represents over 90% of NIKE, Inc. revenues, delivered constant currency revenue growth of 15%, reflecting higher revenues across all geographies, product types and nearly all key categories. Brand strength, innovative products and strong category retail presentation continued to fuel demand for NIKE Brand products. Constant currency revenues from Converse increased 16%, driven by conversion of markets from licensed to direct distribution, as well as growth in comparable direct distribution markets, particularly the United States and the United Kingdom.
Our first quarter net income was also positively impacted by a year-on-year decrease in our effective tax rate of 330 basis points, driven primarily by resolution of audits and an increase in the proportion of earnings from operations outside the United States, which are generally subject to a lower tax rate.
Diluted earnings per share also benefited from a 3% decline in the weighted average diluted common shares outstanding driven by our share repurchase program.

(1)
Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to fiscal 2015 presentation. These changes had no impact on previously reported results of operations or shareholders' equity.
(2)
Results have been restated using actual exchange rates in use during the comparative period to enhance the visibility of the underlying business trends by excluding the impact of translation arising from foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.
(3)
Global Brand Divisions revenues primarily represent NIKE Brand licensing businesses that are not part of a geographic segment.
(4)
Corporate revenues primarily consist of foreign currency revenue-related hedge gains and losses generated by entities within the NIKE Brand geographic operating segments and Converse through our centrally managed foreign exchange risk management program.
On a currency neutral basis, NIKE, Inc. revenues grew 15% for the first quarter of fiscal 2015, driven by increases in revenues for both the NIKE Brand and Converse. Our category offense continued to deliver innovative products, deep brand connections, and compelling retail experiences to consumers, driving increased demand for NIKE Brand products in the first quarter of fiscal 2015. On a currency neutral basis, every NIKE Brand geography delivered higher revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2015. North America and Western Europe each contributed approximately 5 percentage points of the increase in NIKE, Inc. revenues while Greater China contributed approximately 2 percentage points and Emerging Markets and Converse each contributed approximately 1 percentage point.
Excluding the effects of changes in currency exchange rates, NIKE Brand revenues increased for all product types as footwear and apparel revenues increased 18% and 11%, respectively, while equipment revenues increased 5%. The constant currency increase in NIKE Brand footwear revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 was attributable to growth in nearly every category, led by Sportswear, Basketball, Running and Football (Soccer). In the first quarter of fiscal 2015, unit sales of footwear increased approximately 11% and average selling price per pair increased approximately 7%. The increase in average selling price per pair was driven primarily by a shift in mix to higher priced products.
The constant currency increase in NIKE Brand apparel revenues for the first quarter was driven by growth in nearly all key categories, most notably Sportswear, Football (Soccer), Women's Training and Running. In the first quarter of fiscal 2015, unit sales of apparel increased approximately 8% while average selling price per unit increased approximately 3%, driven by a shift in mix to higher priced products.
While wholesale revenues remain the largest component of overall NIKE Brand revenues, we continue to expand our NIKE Brand Direct to Consumer ("DTC") businesses in each of our geographies. Our NIKE Brand DTC operations include NIKE-owned in-line and factory stores, as well as online sales through NIKE-owned websites. For the first quarter of fiscal 2015, DTC revenues represented approximately 23% of NIKE Brand revenues compared to 20% in the first quarter of fiscal 2014. On a currency neutral basis, DTC revenues grew 30% in the first quarter of fiscal 2015 due to comparable store sales growth of 15%, the addition of new stores and strong online sales growth. Comparable store sales include revenues from NIKE-owned in-line and factory stores for which all three of the following requirements have been met: (1) the store has been open at least one year, (2) square footage has not changed by more than 15% within the past year, and (3) the store has not been permanently repositioned within the past year. On a currency neutral basis, online sales through NIKE-owned websites, which are not included in comparable store sales, grew 70% in the first quarter of fiscal 2015. Online sales represented approximately 14% of our total NIKE Brand DTC revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 compared to 11% in the first quarter of 2014.

Futures Orders
Futures orders for NIKE Brand footwear and apparel scheduled for delivery from September 2014 through January 2015 totaled $10.8 billion and were 11% higher than the orders reported for the comparable prior year period. The U.S. Dollar futures orders amount is calculated based upon our internal forecast of the currency exchange rates under which our revenues will be translated during this period. Excluding the impact of currency changes, futures orders increased 14%, with unit orders and average selling price per unit contributing approximately 9 and 5 percentage points of growth, respectively.
