Presentation

Chris Barry - Goldman Sachs

All right. Almost another over here. So we’re going to continue on with Wolverine World Wide. My name is [Chris Barry]. I’ll be covering the Consumer Small and Mid Cap space at Goldman Sachs. I want to welcome Wolverine to the conference. With us we have Blake Krueger, Chairman and CEO; and Don Grimes, the CFO. Christi Cowdin is also here in the audience from the Investors Relations.

So what I’m going to do is I’m going to pass over to Blake. He’s going to through some slides, then Don going to have some material as well and then we’ll go into Q&A. Blake?

Blake Krueger

Thanks for your time this afternoon. As most of you know we posted some slides for this conference this morning on the internet. And Don and I are going to quickly go through these slides and then we will open it up to any questions. I won’t bother to read the forward-looking statements clause here.

But just I know many of your familiar with Wolverine World Wide, just for those you that aren’t. We’ve been around a long-term since 1883. We headquarter at in Michigan. We last year marketed around 52, 53 million pair of footwear in the units of apparel and about 190 plus countries around the world.
