Financial Review and 2015 Outlook

“We’re looking forward to following up a strong 2014 with additional growth in 2015, and we expect to deliver diluted EPS between $1.78 and $1.88 this year,” said Ken Hannah, chief financial officer of Brown Shoe Company. “While we’re confident about our 2015 strategy, we are also cautious about the potential for product delays in the first half of the year, as the west coast port situation is gradually untangled. However, we believe the supply chain changes we implemented last fall should help mitigate most of the impact.”
