WOLVERINE WORLDWIDE REPORTS THIRD QUARTER RESULTS HIGHLIGHTED BY MERRELL'S STRONG PERFORMANCE
Delivers continued strong revenue growth in international markets
ROCKFORD, Mich., November 9, 2022 – Wolverine World Wide, Inc. (NYSE: WWW) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended October 1, 2022.
"While we were pleased to deliver third quarter revenue growth of 9% and 12% on a constant currency basis, both revenue and profit came in below our expectations reflecting ongoing supply chain disruption, heightened promotional activity at retail, and deteriorating macro conditions. We are facing congestion in our own US distribution centers and inland transportation networks and many wholesale customers are currently dealing with heavier inventories and warehouse constraints. These headwinds have resulted in certain shipping delays that impacted most of our brands. Sperry’s performance was further impacted by softer-than-expected trends in the boat category and a sluggish start to boot sales due to unusually warm weather." said Brendan Hoffman, Wolverine Worldwide's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Despite these external headwinds, we saw notable strength in our international business, and within our portfolio Merrell continued its strong momentum delivering 39% constant currency growth.”
“We are excited to share our new brand group structure and related reportable segments. This important change will allow us to better unlock the capabilities and synergies of our strong portfolio of brands. The new structure was recently approved by our Board of Directors and took effect in the fourth quarter. The financial highlights below provide information under the existing and new reportable segments.”

(1) See Form 8-K filed by Wolverine World Wide, Inc. with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2022 for details on reportable segment composition.
Revenue of $691.4 million represents growth of 8.6% versus the prior year and growth of 12.2% on a constant currency basis. Our international business was especially strong, up 33% to $303 million. Direct-to-Consumer revenue was up 4.5% to $160 million.
Gross margin of 40.2% versus 43.2% in the prior year and reflects a higher mix of international distributor sales that carry relatively lower gross margin but operating margins on par with overall business.
Selling, General & Administrative expenses were $219.0 million. Adjusted SG&A expenses of $216.4 million or 31.3% of revenue, was 130 basis points lower than the prior year.
Inventory at the end of the quarter was $880.9 million, up 113.8% compared to unusually low levels last year and represents our peak position for 2022. Higher freight, handling and other inventory costs, represent approximately 15% of the increase. In-transit inventory of $281 million was up from $57 million last year. This heavy in-transit position was caused by inland logistics congestion and limited capacity in our distribution centers.
Net Debt at the end of the quarter was $1.35 billion and liquidity was $400 million. Our bank-defined leverage ratio was 3.4x. This leverage position is a peak for this fiscal year and relates mostly to the increase in inventory in the quarter. In the first month of the fourth quarter, net debt and liquidity have improved by approximately $100 million. We expect to generate $250 million to $300 million of operating free cash flow in the fourth quarter, bringing our bank-defined leverage ratio down closer to 3x.
"We expect revenue growth of 2% to 6% in the fourth quarter which includes a 4% negative impact from foreign exchange rate fluctuations. We are anticipating a heavily promotional environment, especially in our North American wholesale and global DTC channels.” said Mike Stornant, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. "These market conditions will put downward pressure on gross margin for the quarter. We are prioritizing the liquidation of non-core inventory over the coming months to improve our working capital position in 2023. We expect the new brand structure and the establishment of the new Profit Improvement Office to create great value through meaningful operational efficiency and cost reductions to be recognized in 2023.”
FOURTH QUARTER 2022 OUTLOOK
•Revenue is expected to be in the range of $650 million to $675 million, representing growth of approximately 2.3% to 6.2%. Foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations are expected to have approximately $28 million (or 4.4%) negative impact on fourth quarter reported growth.
•Adjusted Gross margin is expected to be approximately 38.0% compared to 42.4% in the prior year. This decrease reflects the Company’s efforts to reduce seasonal inventory and includes an
expectation that the fourth quarter holiday period will be highly promotional, as well as an expectation for increased logistics and handling costs and unfavorable foreign exchange rates.
•Diluted earnings per share are expected to be between ($0.19) to ($0.09) and adjusted diluted earnings per share are expected to be between ($0.15) to ($0.05). Foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations are expected to have a $0.03 negative impact on fourth quarter EPS.
•The Company expects its aggressive inventory actions to position it to reduce inventory at year end versus the third quarter of 2022 and improve distribution efficiencies allowing it to more timely receive and ship products at the start of fiscal 2023.
FULL-YEAR 2022 OUTLOOK
•Revenue is expected to be in the range of $2.670 billion to $2.695 billion, representing growth of approximately 10.6% to 11.6%. Foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations are expected to have approximately $76 million (or 3.1%) negative impact on full-year reported growth.
•Gross margin is expected to be approximately 41.0%, assuming an increased promotional and markdown cadence and a higher mix of lower-margin international third-party sales in the back half of the year.
•Operating margin is expected to be approximately 9% and adjusted operating margin is expected to be approximately 7%, reflecting increased promotional costs and higher inventory handling costs.
•The effective tax rate is expected to be approximately 21%.
•Diluted earnings per share are expected to be between $1.90 to $2.00 and adjusted diluted earnings per share are expected to be between $1.41 to $1.51, representing a decline of (24.1%) to (18.7%). Foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations are expected to have a $0.13 negative impact on full-year EPS.
•Diluted weighted average shares are expected to be approximately 79.9 million.
This outlook assumes no meaningful deterioration of current market conditions related to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, ongoing inflationary pressures, supply chain disruptions, changes in consumer behavior and confidence and geopolitical tensions.
NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
Measures referred to in this release as “adjusted” financial results are non-GAAP measures that exclude environmental and other related costs net of recoveries, costs associated with Sweaty Betty® integration, costs associated with the acquisition of the Sweaty Betty® brand and debt extinguishment costs. The Company also presents constant currency information, which is a non-GAAP measure that excludes the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. The Company calculates constant currency basis by converting the current-period local currency financial results using the prior period exchange rates and comparing these adjusted amounts to the Company's current period reported results. The Company believes providing each of these non-GAAP measures provides valuable supplemental information regarding its results of operations, consistent with how the Company evaluates performance.
The Company has provided a reconciliation of each of the above non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. The Company believes these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to both management and investors because they increase the comparability of current period results to prior period results by adjusting for certain items that may not be indicative of core operating results and enable better identification of trends in our business. The adjusted financial results are used by management to, and allow investors to, evaluate the operating performance of the Company on a comparable basis. Management does not, nor should investors, consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.
EARNINGS CALL INFORMATION
The Company will host a conference call today at 8:30 a.m. EST to discuss these results and current business trends. The conference call will be broadcast live and accessible under the “Investor Relations”
tab at www.wolverineworldwide.com. A replay of the conference call will be available on the Company’s website for a period of approximately 30 days.

The constant currency presentation, which is a non-GAAP measure, excludes the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. The Company believes providing constant currency information provides valuable supplemental information regarding results of operations, consistent with how the Company evaluates performance. The Company calculates constant currency by converting the current-period local currency financial results using the prior period exchange rates and comparing these adjusted amounts to the Company's current period reported results.
Management does not, nor should investors, consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitution for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of all non-GAAP measures included in this press release, to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are found in the financial tables above.
