Wolverine Worldwide begins year with growth

Apr 30, 2015

For its first quarter ending on March 28, US footwear group Wolverine Worldwide recorded 631.4 million dollars in turnover, up slightly by 0.6% compared to the same period last year. At constant exchange rates, sales grew by 3.4%. Growth was partially slowed by the exit of the Patagonia Footwear license.
