Nike (NYSE: NKE) said its fourth-quarter profit dipped on charges tied to its workforce reduction and other restructuring charges.

Nike's revenue fell 7 percent to $4.7 billion for the quarter.

The company said the most recent results included a nearly $200 million pre-tax charge related to reducing its workforce by 5 percent, which resulted in 1,750 jobs cut. Excluding special items, it earned $0.99 per share for the quarter.

During the fourth quarter, U.S. revenues decreased 2 percent to $1.6 billion. Footwear increased 2 percent to $1.2 billion, apparel revenues decreased 15 percent to $379.8 million and equipment revenues were up 2 percent to $85.5 million. U.S. pre-tax income declined 5 percent to $375.7 million.

Revenue for the EMEA region was down 19 percent to $1.2 billion, and flat for the Asia Pacific region at $833.1 million. The Americas region decreased 3 percent to $299.0 million.

Additionally, Nike said orders for product to be delivered June through November are 12 percent lower than orders reported in the same period last year.
