(Reuters) – Nike Inc reported a 7 percent rise in quarterly revenue on Thursday, boosted by strong sales on its app and website.
Total revenue rose to $9.61 billion from $8.98 billion, in line with analysts’ average estimate, according to IBES data from Refinitiv.
The maker of Jordan sneakers reported a net income of $1.1 billion, or 68 cents per share, for the third quarter ended Feb. 28, compared with a net loss of $921 million, or 57 cents per share, a year earlier, when the company incurred a $2 billion charge related to U.S. tax reform.
