Wolverine Worldwide announces revenue increase

Wolverine Worldwide announces revenue increase
The Michigan-based giant has reported revenue of 636.7 million US dollars in the third quarter of 2021, as compared to the same period of 2020, amidst supply chain disruptions
“The Company delivered strong double-digit revenue growth and exceptional earnings leverage, despite the increased supply chain disruption caused by Vietnam factory closures and global logistics delay. Merrell was hit hardest by Vietnam factory closures but still delivered mid-single-digit growth. Saucony and Sperry both drove over 40% revenue growth. The unplanned supply chain disruptions resulted in at least a $60 million negative revenue impact in Q3. Demand for our brands remains very strong as evidenced by continued strength in sell-through trends at retail and a robust order book that extends into Q3 2022. We remain bullish on our outlook for the future in light of these trends and the composition of our portfolio which over-indexes on performance categories like hiking, running, and work. We are also excited about the addition of Sweaty Betty to our portfolio – a fast-growing brand that enhances the digital and apparel capabilities of the Company”, commented Blake W. Krueger, Wolverine Worldwide’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
