Explanatory Note

This Current Report on Form 8-K/A (this “Amendment”) amends the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Wolverine World Wide, Inc. (the “Company”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on May 8, 2023 (the “Original Form 8-K”). The Original Form 8-K was filed to report the results of the Company’s 2023 Annual Meeting of Shareholders held on May 3, 2023 (the “2023 Annual Meeting”). The sole purpose of this Amendment is to disclose, in accordance with Item 5.07(d) of Form 8-K, the Company’s decision as to the frequency of future shareholder advisory votes regarding the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers (i.e., “say on pay” votes). Except as set forth herein, no other changes have been made to the Original Form 8-K.

Item 5.07
Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

Consistent with the recommendation of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) as set forth in the Company’s proxy statement with respect to the 2023 Annual Meeting, a majority of votes at the 2023 Annual Meeting were cast in favor of conducting “say on pay” votes on an annual basis. In light of these voting results, the Company plans to hold future advisory votes approving executive compensation annually until the next required vote on the frequency of such advisory votes, or until the Board of Directors of the Company otherwise determines that a different frequency is in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders. The next advisory vote regarding “say on pay” frequency is currently expected to be held at the Company’s 2029 Annual Meeting of Shareholders.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.

Dated: August 2, 2023
