    Okay, so my Geography homework is to find out three sports brands and find out when they started, in which country ther originated, what annual turnover is and what their annual profit is.

    If you have any of these facts about any sports brands (nike, addidas etc.) or know a website that would help, then please let me know as Google can only tell a person so much.

    Thank You
    Any help much appreciated.

    60 years ago, Adi and Rudi Dassler, who owned a largely successful shoemaking business, had a bitter fall out. They both set up new businesses on opposite sides of the River Aurach, which runs through the centre of Herzogenaurach.

    Rudi Dassler set up a company called Puma. No points for guessing which company Adi Dassler made.

    So yeah, two brothers had a fight and both went on to create massively successful sporting franchises.

    In the time it took you to make this post and the others, you could've already been to Google and have it done. This isn't the 1950s, simple non evaluation research tasks take a few minutes maximum with an internet connection.

    Fair enough - honestly though, you just need to Google the companies, I know Wikipedia isn't the best but it's a place to start, and then go on to look at other websites, and compare the information.

    I'll help off with a start, Nike was originally known as Blue Ribbon Sports (BRS), and was founded by a coach at a uni in the US, and one of his student athletes, and the company started off selling shoes for a company that is known known as Asics. The uni they started off at was in Oregon, where Nike now have their headquarters, but the first BRS/Nike store opened up in California.

    For those of you who keep saying 'found by a simple google' do any of you actually understand what those figures mean? Most likely not and thats what i want to know, so you don't have to treat me like i'm stupid. I need SPECIFIC facts and google doesn't know everything, and even if it knows most things it takes time to sort threw those things and finf what i want. So i was askiing you in case you already knew because i am running out of time.

    Well I got the link on my first go googling, so you might want to practice that some more Lemme give you a hint, as a US company you'll want to look at "form 10-k", then you'll want the "consolidated statements of income" with "revenues" being revenue and "net income" the actual profit.
