Highlight of Business Operations:In the first quarter of fiscal 2013, our revenues increased 10% to $6.7 billion; excluding the impact of exchange rate changes, revenues would have grown 15%. We delivered net income of $567 million and diluted earnings per share of $1.23, 12% and 10% below the first quarter of fiscal 2012, respectively.
On a currency neutral basis, revenues for NIKE, Inc. grew 15% for the first quarter of fiscal 2013, driven by increases in revenues for the NIKE Brand, our Other Businesses and Businesses to be Divested. Excluding the effects of changes in currency exchange rates, revenues for the NIKE Brand increased 16%, as every NIKE Brand geography except Japan delivered higher revenues for the first quarter. North America contributed approximately 10 percentage points to the NIKE Brand revenue increase, while the Emerging Markets and Western Europe geographies contributed approximately 3 and 1 percentage points, respectively. Revenues for our Other Businesses grew 9% during the first quarter, while revenues for our Businesses to be Divested grew 6%.
While wholesale revenues remain the largest component of overall NIKE Brand revenues, we continue to see growth in revenue through our Direct to Consumer channels, which include NIKE owned in-line and factory stores, as well as online sales through NIKE owned websites. For the first quarter of 2013, Direct to Consumer channels represented approximately 19% of our total NIKE Brand revenues compared to 17% in fiscal 2012. On a currency neutral basis, Direct to Consumer revenues grew 24% for the first quarter, as comparable store sales grew 15% and we continue to expand our store network and e-commerce business. Comparable store sales include revenues from NIKE owned in-line and factory stores for which all three of the following requirements have been met: the store has been open at least one year, square footage has not changed by more than 15% within the past year, and the store has not been permanently repositioned within the past year.
Transactional exposures are managed on a portfolio basis within our foreign currency risk management program. We manage these exposures by taking advantage of natural offsets and currency correlations that exist within the portfolio and may also elect to use currency forward and option contracts to hedge the remaining effect of exchange rate fluctuations on probable forecasted future cash flows, including certain product cost exposures, non-functional currency denominated external sales and other costs described above. These are accounted for as cash flow hedges in accordance with the accounting standards for derivatives and hedging, except for hedges of the embedded derivatives component of the product costs exposure as discussed below. As of August 31, 2012, there were outstanding currency forward contracts with maturities up to 21 months. The fair value of outstanding currency forward contracts at August 31, 2012 and May 31, 2012 was $104 million and $183 million in assets and $34 million and $32 million in liabilities, respectively. The effective portion of the changes in fair value of these instruments is reported in other comprehensive income (OCI), a component of shareholders equity, and reclassified into earnings in the same financial statement line item and in the same period or periods during which the related hedged transactions affect consolidated earnings. The ineffective portion is immediately recognized in earnings as a component of other (income) expense, net. Ineffectiveness was not material for the three months ended August 31, 2012 and 2011.
To minimize the impact of translating foreign currency denominated revenues and expenses into U.S. Dollars for consolidated reporting, certain foreign subsidiaries use excess cash to purchase U.S. Dollar denominated available-for-sale investments. The variable future cash flows associated with the purchase and subsequent sale of these U.S. Dollar denominated securities at non-U.S. Dollar functional currency subsidiaries creates a foreign currency exposure that qualifies for hedge accounting under the accounting standards for derivatives and hedging. We utilize forward contracts and/or options to mitigate the variability of the forecasted future purchases and sales of these U.S. Dollar investments. The combination of the purchase and sale of the U.S. Dollar investment and the hedging instrument has the effect of partially offsetting the year-over-year foreign currency translation impact on net earnings in the period the investments are sold. Hedges of available-for-sale investments are accounted for as cash flow hedges. The fair value of instruments used in this manner at August 31, 2012 and May 31, 2012 was $10 million and $27 million in assets and $5 million and $3 million in liabilities, respectively. The effective portion of the changes in fair value of these instruments is reported in OCI and reclassified into earnings in other (income) expense, net in the period during which the hedged available-for-sale investment is sold and affects earnings. Any ineffective portion is immediately recognized in earnings as a component of other (income) expense, net. The impact of ineffective hedges was not material for any period presented.
