ROCKFORD, Mich., April 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wolverine World Wide, Inc.

The Annual Meeting will still be held on April 30, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. EDT, and the items of business are the same as previously announced.  Shareholders will not be able to attend the Annual Meeting in person, but shareholders as of the close of business on March 18, 2020, the record date, will be able to attend the meeting by visiting and entering the 16-digit control number found on the proxy card or voting instruction card previously distributed.

Whether or not they plan to attend the Annual Meeting, we urge all shareholders to vote in advance of the meeting by using one of the methods described in the proxy materials previously distributed for the Annual Meeting.  In addition, shareholders may vote during the Annual Meeting by following the instructions on the meeting website.
