Outdoor footwear group Wolverine Worldwide has reported revenues of $631.4 million for the first quarter of 2015, which represents a small increase (0.6%) on the corresponding figure for last year.

The company said retail store closures, which are part of a “realignment plan” and the end of its licence agreement to produce footwear under the Patagonia brand were two of the factors that had contributed to lower revenue growth this time. However, chief executive, Blake Krueger, said he was confident Wolverine’s growth around the world would accelerate in 2016 and beyond.

He said on announcing the results: “Our first-quarter results reflect the continued strength of our brand portfolio and a global business model that is built on 15 brands, targeting multiple consumer groups, distribution channels and geographies. We believe the strategic investments we are making in our brands position us to capitalise on the many opportunities we have identified.”

Wolverine’s 15 brands are: Sebago, Chaco, Sperry Top-Sider, Bates, Harley-Davidson Footwear, Merrell, Hush Puppies, Keds, Stride Rite, Wolverine, Cat Footwear, Cushe and Hy Test.
