Analysis of Inventory
Accounting Policy on Inventory
Inventories are stated at lower of cost and net realizable value, and valued on either an average or a specific identification cost basis. In some instances, NIKE ships product directly from the supplier to the customer, with the related inventory and cost of sales recognized on a specific identification basis. Inventory costs primarily consist of product cost from NIKE’s suppliers, as well as inbound freight, import duties, taxes, insurance and logistics and other handling fees.
