    Wolverine Shoe and Tanning Corporation
 Business Seller Plan    

Wolverine is one of the world`s leading producers and marketers of nonathletic footwear, including casual, work, and outdoor shoes and boots as well as moccasins and slippers. The company sells more than 37 million pairs of footwear per year, under such brands as Wolverine (work, outdoor sport, and rugged casual categories), Bates (uniform), Hy-Test (work), Merrell (hiking, rugged outdoor, and outdoorinspired casual), and the famous Hush Puppies (casual). Wolverine produces additional lines under brands licensed from other firms, including Caterpillar, Coleman, Harley-Davidson, Karen Neuburger, and Stanley. More than 90 percent of the company`s revenues are generated from the sale of branded footwear.

The company`s products are sold worldwide through department stores, footwear chains, specialty and independent retailers, and international licensees and distributors. More than 20 percent of sales originate outside the United States, the vast majority coming from Europe and Canada. Other Wolverine businesses contribute about 10 percent of revenues; these include a pigskin tannery in the company`s headquarters city of Rockford in west Michigan; a licensing operation through which the Wolverine and Hush Puppies brands appear on non-footwear products produced by other companies, including apparel, eyewear, watches, and plush toys; and a retailing business, which operates more than 60 factory outlet stores under the Hush Puppies and Family name as well as a couple of Track `n Trail mall-based stores.

The company also maintains several web sites selling its footwear directly to consumers. On the manufacturing side, 85 percent of the company`s shoes are sourced via third-party manufacturers mainly located in the Asia-Pacific region and Central and South America; the balance are produced at company-owned facilities in Michigan, Arkansas, the Dominican Republic, and Mexico.

Family-owned from its inception in 1883 until 1965, Wolverine struggled to compete with athletic and imported shoes in the 1970s and 1980s. A combination of shrewd marketing, fresh-yet-retro design, and pure luck contributed to the company`s spectacular comeback in the early 1990s. More recent developments have included acquisitions of the Hy-Test and Merrell brands in 1996 and 1997, respectively; the 1990s launching of footwear lines under licensed brands, including Caterpillar and Harley-Davidson; and the overhaul of the company`s global sourcing and manufacturing operations, begun in 2000.
