ComstockJohn G. ConnorsTimothy D. CookAlan B. Graf, Jr.Douglas G. HouserPhilip H. KnightJohn C. LechleiterMark G. ParkerJohnathan A. RodgersOrin C. SmithJohn R. Thompson, Jr.Phyllis M. WiseMeetings in Fiscal 2012AuditCompensation Nominating andCorporate GovernanceCorporateResponsibility Chair ChairChair 5 Chair5Finance Executive Chair 13Chair 450Director IndependencePursuant to NYSE rules, in order for a director to qualify as “independent,” theBoard of Directors must affirmatively determine that the director has nomaterial relationship with the Company that would impair the director’sindependence. The Board affirmatively determined that commercial orcharitable relationships below the following thresholds will not be consideredmaterial relationships that impair a director’s independence: (i) if a NIKEdirector or immediate family member is an executive officer of anothercompany that does business with NIKE and the annual sales to, or purchasesfrom, NIKE are less than one percent of the annual revenues of the othercompany; and (ii) if a NIKE director or immediate family member serves as anofficer, director or trustee of a charitable organization, and NIKE’scontributions to the organization are less than one percent of thatorganization’s total annual charitable receipts. After applying this categoricalstandard, the Board of Directors has determined that all directors have nomaterial relationship with the Company and, therefore, are independent,except for Messrs. Knight, Parker, and Thompson. Mr. Knight and Mr. Parkerare executive officers of the Company. Mr. Thompson is not independentpursuant to NYSE rules, because the Company has a contract with his son,who is the head basketball coach at Georgetown University, to provideendorsement and consulting services to the Company, under which theCompany paid to him 258,000 for services, product, and travel from May2011 to April 2012.Director NominationsThe Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee identifies potentialdirector candidates through a variety of means, including recommendationsfrom members of the Committee or the Board, suggestions from Companymanagement, and shareholder recommendations. The Committee also may,in its discretion, engage director search firms to identify candidates.Shareholders may recommend director candidates for consideration by theNominating and Corporate Governance Committee by submitting a writtenrecommendation to the Committee, c/o John F. Coburn III, Secretary, NIKE,Inc., One Bowerman Drive, Beaverton, Oregon 97005-6453. Therecommendation should include the candidate’s name, age, qualificationsNIKE, INC. Š 2012 Notice of Annual Meeting5

CORPORATE GOVERNANCEBoard of Directors(including principal occupation and employment history), and written consentto be named as a nominee in the Company’s proxy statement and to serve asa director, if elected.The Board of Directors has adopted qualification standards for the selectionof independent nominees for director which can be found at our website: As provided in these standards and theCompany’s Corporate Governance Guidelines, nominees for director areselected on the basis of, among other things, distinguished businessexperience or other non-business achievements; education; significantknowledge of international business, finance, marketing, technology, law, orother fields which are complementary to, and balance the knowledge of,other Board members; a desire to represent the interests of all shareholders;independence; character; ethics; good judgment; diversity; and ability todevote substantial time to discharge Board responsibilities.The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee identifies qualifiedpotential candidates without regard to their age, gender, race, national origin,sexual orientation, or religion. While the Board has no policy regarding Boardmember diversity, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committeeconsiders and discusses diversity in selecting nominees for director and in there-nomination of an incumbent director. The Committee views diversitybroadly, including gender, ethnicity, differences of viewpoint, geographiclocation, skills, education, and professional and industry experience, amongothers. The Board believes that a variety and balance of perspectives on theBoard can result in more thoughtful deliberations.In considering the re-nomination of an incumbent director, the Nominatingand Corporate Governance Committee reviews the director’s overall serviceto the Company during his or her term, including the number of meetingsattended, level of participation and quality of performance, as well as anyspecial skills or diversity that such director brings to the Board. All potentialnew director candidates, whether recommended by shareholders oridentified by other means, are initially screened by the Chair of the Nominatingand Corporate Governance Committee, who may seek additional informationabout the background and qualifications of the candidate, and who maydetermine that a candidate does not have qualifications that merit furtherconsideration by the full Committee. With respect to new director candidateswho pass the initial screening, the Nominating and Corporate GovernanceCommittee meets to discuss and consider each candidate’s qualificationsand potential contributions to the Board, and determines by majority votewhether to recommend such candidates to the Board of Directors. The finaldecision to either appoint a candidate to fill a vacancy between AnnualMeetings or include a candidate on the slate of nominees proposed at anAnnual Meeting is made by the Board of Directors.Directors first elected after the 1993 fiscal year must retire by the age of 72.Shareholder Communications with DirectorsShareholders or interested parties desiring to communicate directly with theBoard of Directors, with the non-management directors or with any individualdirector may do so in writing addressed to the intended recipient or recipients,c/o John F. Coburn III, Secretary, NIKE, Inc., One Bowerman Drive,Beaverton, Oregon 97005-6453. All such communications will be reviewed,compiled as necessary, and then forwarded to the designated recipient orrecipients in a timely manner.Board Leadership StructureNIKE’s governance documents provide the Board with flexibility to select theappropriate leadership structure of the Company. In determining theleadership structure, the Board considers many factors, including the specificneeds of the business, fulfilling the duties of the Board, and the best interestsof the Company’s shareholders. In 2004, the Board of Directors chose toseparate the position of Chairman of the Board from the position of Presidentand Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”), although this is not a permanent policy ofthe Board. The Chairman, Mr. Knight, presides over meetings of the Board ofDirectors and shareholders. The CEO, Mr. Parker, is in charge of the generalsupervision, direction, and control of the business and affairs of the Company,subject to the overall direction and supervision of the Board of Directors andits committees.The Board believes this leadership structure is appropriate for the Companybecause it separates the leadership of the Board from the duties ofday-to-day leadership of the Company. In particular, it permits Mr. Parker tofocus his full time and attention to the business, the supervision of which hasbecome increasingly complex as the Company has grown. In addition, thestructure permits Mr. Knight to direct his attention to the broad strategicissues considered by the Board of Directors. Further, with his significantCompany experience and ownership of Common Stock, Mr. Knight isparticularly well-suited as Chairman, helping to align the Board with theinterests of shareholders.The chairs of Board committees play an active role in the leadership structureof the Board. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee and theBoard endeavor to select independent committee chairs who will providestrong leadership to guide the important work of the Board committees.Committee chairs work with senior executives to ensure that committees arediscussing the key strategic risks and opportunities for the Company.The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee has determined thatgiven the separation of the positions of Chairman and CEO, and the strongleadership of experienced chairs of each of the Board committees, a leaddirector would not improve the effectiveness of the Board at this time. Apresiding director is appointed to chair executive sessions ofnon-management directors (consisting of all directors other than Mr. Knightand Mr. Parker). The position of presiding director is rotated among the chairsof the various Board committees, other than the Executive Committee. Thecurrent presiding director at the executive sessions is Mr. Cook. Executivesessions are regularly scheduled and held at least once each year. For all ofthese reasons, the Board believes this leadership structure is optimal and hasworked well for many years.The Board’s Role in Risk OversightWhile the Company’s management is responsible for day-to-daymanagement of the various risks facing the Company, the Board of Directorstakes an active role in the oversight of the management of critical businessrisks. The Board does not view risk in isolation. Risks are considered invirtually every business decision and as part of NIKE’s business strategy. TheBoard recognizes that it is neither possible nor prudent to eliminate all risk.6Purposeful and appropriate risk-taking is essential for the Company to becompetitive on a global basis and to achieve its strategic objectives.The Board implements its risk oversight function both as a whole and throughcommittees, which play a significant role in carrying out risk oversight. Whilethe Audit Committee is responsible for oversight of management’s riskmanagement policies, oversight responsibility for particular areas of risk is

CORPORATE GOVERNANCEPROPOSAL 1allocated among the Board committees according to the committee’s area ofresponsibility as reflected in the committee charters. In particular: The Audit Committee oversees risks related to the Company’s financialstatements, the financial reporting process, accounting, and legal matters.The Committee oversees the internal audit function, reviews a risk-basedplan of internal audits, and reviews a risk-based integrated audit of internalcontrols over financial reporting. The Committee meets separately with theVice President of Corporate Audit, representatives of the independentexternal auditor, and senior management. The Compensation Committee oversees risks and rewards associated withthe Company’s compensation philosophy and programs, executivesuccession plans, and executive development. The Finance Committee oversees financial matters and risks relating tobudgeting, investments, access to capital, capital deployment, acquisitionsand divestitures, currency risk and hedging programs, and significantcapital projects. The Corporate Responsibility Committee oversees issues that involvereputational risk to the Company, including community engagement,manufacturing health and safety, environmental sustainability, and diversity. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee oversees risksassociated with company governance, including NIKE’s code of businessconduct and ethics, compliance programs, and the structure andperformance of the Board and its committees.Each committee chair works with the senior executive assigned to assist thecommittee to develop agendas for the year and for each meeting, payingparticular attention to areas of business risk identified by management, Boardmembers, internal and external auditors, and in their committee charter, andto schedule agenda topics, presentations, and discussions periodicallyregarding business risks within their area of responsibility. At meetings, thecommittees discuss areas of business risk, the potential related impacts, andmanagement’s initiatives to manage business risk, often within the context ofimportant business decisions. Through this process key business risk areasare reviewed at appropriate times, with some topics reviewed on severaloccasions throughout the year. At every Board meeting the chair of eachcommittee reports to the full Board its discussions and actions, includingthose affecting the oversight of various risks.The Company believes that its leadership structure, discussed in detail above,supports the risk oversight function of the Board. Strong directors chair thevarious committees involved in risk oversight, there is open communicationbetween management and directors, and all directors are involved in the riskoversight function.Code of Business Conduct and EthicsThe NIKE Code of Ethics (“Code”) is available at the Company’s website( and will be provided in print without charge toany shareholder who submits a request in writing to NIKE Investor Relations,One Bowerman Drive, Beaverton, Oregon 97005-6453. The Code applies tothe Company’s chief executive officer and senior financial officers, and to allother Company directors, officers and employees. The Code provides thatany waiver of the Code may be made only by the Board. Any such waiver infavor of a director or executive officer will be publicly disclosed. The Companyplans to disclose amendments to, and waivers from, the Code on theCompany’s website: 1 Election of DirectorsA Board of 12 directors will be elected at the Annual Meeting.

If any nomineebecomes unable to serve, the holders of the proxies may, in their discretion,vote the shares for a substitute nominee or nominees designated by theBoard of Directors.The Corporate Governance Guidelines adopted by the Board of Directorsprovide that any nominee for director in an uncontested election who receivesa greater number of votes “withheld” from his or her election than votes “for”such election shall tender his or her resignation for consideration by theNominating and Corporate Governance Committee. The Committee shallrecommend to the Board the action to be taken with respect to theresignation. The Board will publicly disclose its decision within 90 days of thecertification of the election results.Background information on the nominees as of July 13, 2012, including someof the attributes that led to their selection, appears below. The Nominatingand Corporate Governance Committee has determined that each directormeets the qualification standards described in the section entitled “DirectorNominations” above. In addition, the Board firmly believes that theexperience, attributes, and skills of any single director should not be viewed inisolation, but rather in the context of the experience, attributes, and skills thatall director nominees bring to the Board as a whole, each of which contributesto the function of an effective Board.NIKE, INC.
