Shoes For Crews to Acquire SureGrip Footwear from Genesco

WEST PALM BEACH, FL and NASHVILLE, TN, December 6, 2016 – Shoes For Crews, LLC (“SFC”), the global leader in slip-resistant footwear, and Genesco Inc. (NYSE: GCO) today announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which SFC will acquire the SureGrip Footwear (“SureGrip”) subsidiary of Genesco. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

SureGrip markets a broad line of occupational, slip-resistant footwear at a range of price points for the hospitality, grocery, foodservice, healthcare and industrial industries under a portfolio of well-known brands including New Balance, Caterpillar, Dockers, Lila, Merrell, Aerosoles, Crocs, DC Shoes, Johnston & Murphy and Keuka. Like SFC, SureGrip products are distributed both through corporate safety footwear programs as well as direct-to-consumer.

Adding SureGrip’s branded products to SFC’s portfolio will strengthen SFC’s position as the trusted category creator and industry leader in safety footwear.

Stuart Jenkins, President, CEO & Chief Innovation Officer of SFC, said, “Shoes for Crews and SureGrip are a natural fit, with the common goal of creating a safer workplace and a shared focus on innovation, quality and exceptional service. We are excited by the many opportunities that will result from bringing SureGrip into our portfolio, especially the ability to offer our customers a wider variety of stylish and comfortable products. We will work closely with Genesco and the talented SureGrip team to ensure a seamless integration and to deliver the many benefits of this great combination for our customers.”

Robert J. Dennis, Genesco Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “SureGrip is a terrific business with great brand partners and loyal customers. The success of the business over the past six years is a testament to the strength of SureGrip and its entire team. SureGrip and Shoes For Crews share a mutual mission and are a clear strategic fit. Joining with Shoes For Crews will provide new opportunities and is a very positive step for SureGrip and its employees.”

Bret Moore, President of SureGrip, said, "We are excited to bring SureGrip and Shoes For Crews together and expect our employees and customers will benefit from this combination. Stuart and his team have brought a renewed commitment to innovation, product quality and service which are core SureGrip principles. We look forward to working with them to maximize the potential of our combined business.” The transaction is expected to close by the end of 2016.
