ITEM 8.01. OTHER EVENTS.

On September 30, 2019, Genesco Inc. (the “Company”) announced that its board of directors has authorized a stock repurchase program pursuant to which the Company may purchase up to $100 million in shares of the Company’s outstanding common stock, par value $1.00 per share. Share repurchases under the program will be made from time to time, in the open market, in privately negotiated transactions or otherwise, at the discretion of the management of the Company and in accordance with Securities and Exchange Commission and other applicable legal requirements. The timing, pricing and sizes of these repurchases will depend on a number of factors, including the market price of the Company’s common stock and general market and economic conditions.
