February 13, 2014 (United States Of America)

The Directors of Wolverine Worldwide declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 per share of common stock. The dividend is payable on May 1, 2014 to stockholders of record on April 1, 2014. The dividend is equal to the last quarterly dividend and reflects an indicated annual dividend of $0.24 per share.
 
The Company's Board of Directors also approved a new share repurchase program authorizing up to $200 million in share repurchases, which replaces the Company's 2010 Share Repurchase Authorization that just expired.
