06:37 EDTWWWWolverine World Wide announces strategic realignment plan
In a move designed to accelerate growth and improve overall profitability, the company announced a Strategic Realignment Plan that includes store closures primarily within the Stride Rite fleet and several other initiatives. The realignment of the consumer-direct business is intended to optimize the fleet of retail locations, right-size the supporting infrastructure, address a fundamental shift in consumer shopping behavior and allow for greater focus on important omni-channel initiatives. Key components of the plan include: Closing approximately 140 retail locations primarily Stride Rite stores over the next 18 months. Of these, the company expects that approximately 60 stores will close by FY end, with the balance closed by the end of 2015; Consolidating certain consumer-direct functions, specifically store operations and field support teams, intended to allow for a more effective and efficient management of the retail fleet; and Implementing organizational and infrastructure changes to realize further synergies. The company estimates pretax charges related to the plan in the range of $30M-$37M, and expects to record these charges between now and the end of FY15 as it executes each component. Approximately $13M-$15M of this estimate represents non-cash charges, primarily asset write-offs related to closed retail locations and restructuring charges related to the remaining retail store fleet and international operations. Of this non-cash amount, $3.4M was recorded in Q2. Once the plan is fully implemented, the company expects annual pretax benefits of approximately $11M and intends to redeploy a meaningful portion of these benefits to further build out consumer-direct omni-channel capabilities and accelerate growth in its wholesale operations.
