Basis of Presentation
The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes contained in this report are unaudited but reflect all adjustments, consisting of only normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the interim periods of the fiscal year ending February 3, 2018 ("Fiscal 2018") and of the fiscal year ended January 28, 2017 ("Fiscal 2017"). The results of operations for any interim period are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted. The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of January 28, 2017 has been derived from the audited financial statements at that date. These Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the Company's Consolidated Financial Statements and notes thereto for Fiscal 2017, which are contained in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on March 29, 2017.

Principles of Consolidation
All subsidiaries are consolidated in the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. All significant intercompany transactions and accounts have been eliminated.

Financial Statement Reclassifications
Certain reclassifications have been made to conform prior years' data to the current year presentation with respect to fixed assets. In order to categorize the fixed assets of Schuh Group comparable to the Company's other business segments, $44.0 million and $42.0 million was reclassed from furniture and fixtures to leasehold improvements as of January 28, 2017 and October 29, 2016, respectively.

Cash and Cash Equivalents
The Company had total available cash and cash equivalents of $50.7 million, $48.3 million and $30.5 million as of October 28, 2017, January 28, 2017 and October 29, 2016, respectively, of which approximately $4.4 million, $22.9 million and $5.4 million was held by the Company's foreign subsidiaries as of October 28, 2017, January 28, 2017 and October 29, 2016, respectively. The Company's strategic plan does not require the repatriation of foreign cash in order to fund its operations in the U.S., and it is the Company's current intention to indefinitely reinvest its foreign cash and cash equivalents outside of the U.S. If the Company were to repatriate foreign cash to the U.S., it would be required to accrue and pay U.S. taxes in accordance with applicable U.S. tax rules and regulations as a result of the repatriation. There were no cash equivalents included in cash and cash equivalents at October 28, 2017, January 28, 2017 and October 29, 2016. Cash equivalents are highly-liquid financial instruments having an original maturity of three months or less.
At October 28, 2017, substantially all of the Company’s domestic cash was invested in deposit accounts at FDIC-insured banks. The majority of payments due from banks for domestic customer credit card transactions process within 24 - 48 hours and are accordingly classified as cash and cash equivalents in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

At October 28, 2017, January 28, 2017 and October 29, 2016, outstanding checks drawn on zero-balance accounts at certain domestic banks exceeded book cash balances at those banks by approximately $34.7 million, $36.7 million and $35.2 million, respectively. These amounts are included in accounts payable in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

Concentration of Credit Risk and Allowances on Accounts Receivable
The Company’s footwear wholesale businesses sell primarily to department stores and independent retailers across the United States. Receivables arising from these sales are not collateralized. Customer credit risk is affected by conditions or occurrences within the economy and the retail industry as well as by customer specific factors. In the footwear wholesale businesses, one customer accounted for 17%, one customer accounted for 8% and two customers each accounted for 7% of the Company’s total trade receivables balance, while no other customer accounted for more than 7% of the Company’s total trade receivables balance as of October 28, 2017.

Leases
The Company occasionally receives reimbursements from landlords to be used towards construction of the store the Company intends to lease. Leasehold improvements are recorded at their gross costs including items reimbursed by landlords. The reimbursements are amortized as a reduction
of rent expense over the initial lease term. Tenant allowances of $28.6 million, $25.4 million and $24.4 million at October 28, 2017, January 28, 2017 and October 29, 2016, respectively, and deferred
rent of $57.0 million, $51.9 million and $50.5 million, each at October 28, 2017, January 28, 2017 and October 29, 2016, respectively, are included in deferred rent and other long-term liabilities on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets include asset retirement obligations related to leases of $10.9 million, $10.3 million and $10.0 million as of October 28, 2017, January 28, 2017 and October 29, 2016, respectively.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments
The carrying amounts and fair values of the Company’s financial instruments at October 28, 2017 and January 28, 2017 are as follows:

Debt fair values were estimated using a discounted cash flow analysis based on current market interest rates for similar types of financial instruments and would be classified in Level 2 as defined in Note 5.

Carrying amounts reported on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets for cash, cash equivalents, receivables and accounts payable approximate fair value due to the short-term maturity of these instruments.

Selling and Administrative Expenses
Selling and administrative expenses include all operating costs of the Company excluding (i) those related to the transportation of products from the supplier to the warehouse, (ii) for its retail operations, those related to the transportation of products from the warehouse to the store and (iii)
costs of its distribution facilities which are allocated to its retail operations. Wholesale costs of distribution are included in selling and administrative expenses on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations in the amount of $1.4 million and $1.6 million for the third quarters of Fiscal 2018 and Fiscal 2017, respectively, and $4.2 million and $4.6 million for the first nine months of Fiscal 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Gift Cards
Gift card breakage is recognized in revenues each period for which financial statements are updated. Gift card breakage recognized as revenue was $0.5 million and $0.3 million for the third quarter of Fiscal 2018 and Fiscal 2017, respectively, and $0.9 million and $0.6 million for the first nine months
of Fiscal 2018 and 2017, respectively. The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets include an accrued liability for gift cards of $14.9 million, $17.7 million and $14.5 million at October 28, 2017, January 28, 2017 and October 29, 2016, respectively.

Buying, Merchandising and Occupancy Costs
The Company records buying, merchandising and occupancy costs in selling and administrative expense on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. Because the Company does not include these costs in cost of sales, the Company’s gross margin may not be comparable to other retailers that include these costs in the calculation of gross margin. Retail store occupancy costs recorded in selling and administrative expense were $115.7 million and $113.3 million for the third quarters of Fiscal 2018 and Fiscal 2017, respectively, and $343.1 million and $336.7 million for the first nine months of Fiscal 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Advertising Costs
Advertising costs are predominantly expensed as incurred. Advertising costs were $20.3 million and $18.2 million for the third quarters of Fiscal 2018 and Fiscal 2017, respectively, and $56.8 million and $50.6 million for the first nine months of Fiscal 2018 and 2017, respectively. Direct response advertising costs for catalogs are capitalized in accordance with the Other Assets and Deferred Costs Topic for Capitalized Advertising Costs of the Codification. Such costs are amortized over the estimated future period as revenues are realized from such advertising, not to exceed six
months. The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets include prepaid assets for direct response advertising costs of $5.1 million, $1.2 million and $3.7 million at October 28, 2017, January 28, 2017 and October 29, 2016, respectively.

Cooperative Advertising
Cooperative advertising costs recognized in selling and administrative expenses on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations were $1.0 million for each of the third quarters of Fiscal 2018 and Fiscal 2017, and $2.8 million and $2.7 million for the first nine months of Fiscal 2018 and 2017, respectively. During the first nine months of Fiscal 2018 and Fiscal 2017, the Company’s cooperative advertising reimbursements paid did not exceed the fair value of the benefits received under those agreements.

Vendor Allowances
Vendor reimbursements of cooperative advertising costs recognized as a reduction of selling and administrative expenses were $3.1 million and $3.0 million for the third quarters of Fiscal 2018 and Fiscal 2017, respectively, and $7.5 million and $5.7 million for the first nine months of Fiscal 2018 and 2017, respectively. During the first nine months of Fiscal 2018 and Fiscal 2017, the Company’s cooperative advertising reimbursements received were not in excess of the costs incurred.

Foreign Currency Translation
The functional currency of the Company's foreign operations is the applicable local currency. The translation of the applicable foreign currency into U.S. dollars is performed for balance sheet accounts using current exchange rates in effect at the balance sheet date. Income and expense accounts are translated at monthly average exchange rates. The unearned gains and losses resulting
from such translation are included as a separate component of accumulated other comprehensive loss within shareholders' equity. Gains and losses from certain foreign currency transactions are
reported as an item of income and resulted in a net gain of $(0.1) million and a net loss of $0.4 million for the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2018, respectively, and a net gain of $(0.4) million and $(1.9) million for the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2017, respectively.

Other Comprehensive Income
The Comprehensive Income Topic of the Codification requires, among other things, the Company’s pension liability adjustment, postretirement liability adjustment and foreign currency translation adjustments to be included in other comprehensive income net of tax. Accumulated other comprehensive loss at October 28, 2017 consisted of $9.0 million of cumulative pension liability adjustments, net of tax, a cumulative post-retirement liability adjustment of $1.5 million, net of tax, and a cumulative foreign currency translation adjustment of $33.5 million.

The following table summarizes the components of accumulated other comprehensive loss for the nine months ended October 28, 2017:

Income Taxes
The Company recorded an effective income tax rate of (7.1)% and 33.2% in the third quarter of Fiscal 2018 and 2017, respectively, and (7.8)% and 33.6% for the first nine months of Fiscal 2018 and 2017, respectively. The tax rate for the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2018 was impacted by the non-deductibility of $107.6 million of the $182.2 million of goodwill impairment charge in the third quarter of Fiscal 2018. In addition, the tax rate for the nine months of Fiscal
2018 was impacted by $2.2 million of tax expense due to the impact of ASU 2016-09 related to the vesting of stock grants. The tax rate for the first nine months of Fiscal 2018 was favorably impacted by a $0.5 million return to provision adjustment. The tax rate for the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2017 was favorably impacted reflecting the release of tax reserves and other items.

New Accounting Pronouncements
New Accounting Pronouncements Recently Adopted
In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-04, “Intangibles - Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment.” ASU 2017-04 simplifies the measurement of goodwill by eliminating the second step from the goodwill impairment test, which requires the comparison of the implied fair value of goodwill with the current carrying amount of goodwill. Instead, under the amendments in this guidance, an entity shall perform a goodwill impairment test
by comparing the fair value of each reporting unit with its carrying amount and an impairment charge is to be recorded for the amount, if any, in which the carrying value exceeds the reporting unit’s fair value. This guidance should be applied prospectively and is effective for public business
entities that are United States Securities and Exchange Commission filers for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, with early adoption permitted for interim or annual goodwill impairment tests performed after January 1, 2017. The Company adopted ASU 2017-04 in the first quarter of Fiscal 2018, and the Company measured goodwill impairment in the third quarter of Fiscal 2018 under the provisions of ASC 350, "Intangibles - Goodwill and Other" ("ASC 350").

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, “Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting”. The update addresses several aspects of the accounting for share-based compensation transactions including: (a) income tax consequences when awards vest or are settled, (b) classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, (c) a policy election to account for forfeitures as they occur rather than on an
estimated basis and (d) classification of excess tax impacts on the statement of cash flows. The inclusion of excess tax benefits and deficiencies as a component of the Company's income tax expense will increase volatility within its provision for income taxes as the amount of excess tax benefits or deficiencies from share-based compensation awards is dependent on the Company's stock price at the date the awards are exercised or settled which is primarily in the second quarter of each fiscal year. The Company adopted ASU 2016-09 in the first quarter of Fiscal 2018. Earnings per share decreased $0.11 per share for the nine months ended October 28, 2017 due to the impact of ASU 2016-09. The Company reclassified $3.4 million from operating activities to financing activities on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows for nine months ended October 29, 2016 representing the value of the shares withheld for taxes on the vesting of restricted stock.

Note 1
Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, Continued

If the Company had adopted the standard in Fiscal 2017, reported earnings per share would have decreased $0.03 per share for Fiscal 2017.

In November 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-17, "Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes". ASU 2015-17 requires that all deferred tax assets and liabilities, along with any related valuation allowance, be classified as noncurrent on the balance sheet. The Company adopted ASU 2015-17 in the first quarter of Fiscal 2018 under the retrospective approach and, as such, the
Company reclassified $21.2 million and $23.9 million of deferred taxes from current to noncurrent on its Consolidated Balance Sheets as of January 28, 2017 and October 29, 2016, respectively.

In July 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-11, "Inventory (Topic 330): Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory." ASU 2015-11 requires an entity that determines the cost of inventory by methods other than last-in, first-out and the retail inventory method to measure inventory at the lower of cost and net realizable value. The Company adopted ASU 2015-11 in the first quarter of Fiscal 2018 and it did not have a material impact on its Consolidated Financial Statements and related disclosures.

New Accounting Pronouncements Not Yet Adopted
In March 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-07, "Compensation - Retirement Benefits (Topic 715)". The standard requires the sponsors of benefit plans to present service cost in the same line item or items as other current employee compensation costs, and present the remaining components of net benefit cost in one or more separate line items outside of income from operations, while also limiting the components of net benefit cost eligible to be capitalized to service cost. The standard will require the Company to present the non-service pension costs as a component of expense below operating income. The standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of this standard to have a material impact on its Consolidated Financial Statements and related disclosures.

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, "Leases". The standard's core principle is to increase transparency and comparability among organizations by recognizing lease assets and liabilities on the balance sheet and disclosing key information. The standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years, which would be the beginning of our Fiscal 2020 or February 2019. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact the adoption of ASU 2016-02 will have on its Consolidated Financial Statements and related disclosures and is expecting a material impact because the Company is party to a significant number of lease contracts.

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)". ASU 2014-09 amends the guidance for revenue recognition to replace numerous, industry-specific requirements and merges areas under this topic with those of the International Financial Reporting Standards. The ASU implements a five-step process for customer contract revenue recognition that focuses on transfer of control, as opposed to transfer of risk and rewards. The amendment also requires enhanced disclosures regarding the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty

of revenues and cash flows from contracts with customers. ASU 2014-09 was originally effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2016, however,
in August 2015, the FASB deferred this ASU for one year, which would be the beginning of our Fiscal 2019, or February 2018. The amendment is to be applied either retrospectively to each prior reporting period presented or with the cumulative effect recognized at the date of initial adoption as an adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings (or other appropriate components of equity or net assets on the balance sheet). Based on an evaluation of the standard as a whole, the Company has identified timing of catalog costs and timing of gift card breakage as the areas that will most likely be affected by the new revenue recognition guidance. The Company is continuing to assess all the impacts of the new standard and the design of internal control over financial reporting; however, based upon the materiality of the transactions that are impacted by the standard, adoption is not expected to have a material impact on its Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and related disclosures. The Company expects to adopt this guidance in the first quarter of Fiscal 2019 using the modified retrospective approach.

As required under ASC 350, the Company annually assesses its goodwill and indefinite lived trade names for impairment and on an interim basis if indicators of impairment are present. The Company’s annual assessment date of goodwill and indefinite lived trade names is the first day of the fourth quarter.

During the third quarter of Fiscal 2018, the Company identified qualitative indicators of impairment, including a significant decline in the Company's stock price and market capitalization for a sustained period since the last consideration of indicators of impairment in the second quarter of Fiscal 2018, underperformance relative to projected operating results, particularly in the Lids Sports Group reporting unit, and an increased competitive environment in the licensed sports business.

Note 2
Goodwill, Other Intangible Assets and Sale of Business, Continued

In accordance with ASC 350, when indicators of impairment are present on an interim basis, the Company must assess whether it is “more likely than not” (i.e., a greater than 50% chance) that an impairment has occurred. In our Fiscal 2017 annual evaluation of goodwill, the Company determined
that the fair value of the Lids Sports Group and Schuh Group reporting units exceeded the carrying value of the reporting units’ assets by approximately 15% and 28%, respectively. Due to the identified indicators of impairment during the the third quarter of Fiscal 2018, the Company determined that it was "more likely than not" that an impairment had occurred and performed a full valuation of its reporting units as required under ASC 350 and reconciled the aggregate fair values of the individual reporting units to the Company’s market capitalization.

Based upon the results of these analyses, the Company concluded the goodwill attributed to Lids Sports Group was fully impaired. As a result, the Company recorded a non-cash impairment charge of $182.2 million in the third quarter of Fiscal 2018.

In addition, as a result of the factors noted above, the Company evaluated the fair value of its trademarks during the third quarter of Fiscal 2018. The fair value of trademarks was determined based on the royalty savings approach. This analysis did not result in any trademark impairment.

Asset Impairments and Other Charges and Discontinued Operations

Asset Impairments and Other Charges

In accordance with Company policy, assets are determined to be impaired when the revised estimated future cash flows are insufficient to recover the carrying costs. Impairment charges represent the excess of the carrying value over the fair value of those assets.

Asset impairment charges are reflected as a reduction of the net carrying value of property and equipment in the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets, and in asset impairments and other, net in the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

Note 5
Fair Value

The Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures Topic of the Codification defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. This Topic defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (i.e., an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. It also establishes a fair value hierarchy which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. The standard describes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

Level 1 - Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

Level 2 - Observable inputs other than Level 1 prices such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

Level 3 - Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

A financial asset or liability’s classification within the hierarchy is determined based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

The following table presents the Company's assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis as of October 28, 2017 aggregated by the level in the fair value hierarchy within which those measurements fall (in thousands):

Note 5
Fair Value, Continued

In accordance with the Property, Plant and Equipment Topic of the Codification, the Company recorded $0.5 million and $0.7 million of impairment charges as a result of the fair value measurement of its long-lived assets held and used during the three and nine months ended October 28, 2017, respectively. These charges are reflected in asset impairments and other, net on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

The Company used a discounted cash flow model to estimate the fair value of these long-lived assets. Discount rate and growth rate assumptions are derived from current economic conditions, expectations of management and projected trends of current operating results. As a result, the Company has determined that the majority of the inputs used to value its long-lived assets held and used are unobservable inputs that fall within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy.

Legal Proceedings

Environmental Matters
New York State Environmental Matters
In August 1997, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (“NYSDEC”) and the Company entered into a consent order whereby the Company assumed responsibility for conducting a remedial investigation and feasibility study (“RIFS”) and implementing an interim remedial measure (“IRM”) with regard to the site of a knitting mill operated by a former subsidiary of the Company from 1965 to 1969. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”), which assumed primary regulatory responsibility for the site from NYSDEC, issued a Record of Decision in September 2007. The Record of Decision specified a remedy of a combination of groundwater extraction and treatment and in-situ chemical oxidation.

In September 2015, the EPA adopted an amendment to the Record of Decision eliminating the separate ground-water extraction and treatment systems and the use of in-situ oxidation from the remedy adopted in the Record of Decision. The amendment provides for the continued operation and maintenance of the existing wellhead treatment systems on wells operated by the Village of Garden City, New York (the "Village"). It also requires the Company to perform certain ongoing monitoring, operation and maintenance activities and to reimburse EPA's future oversight cost, involving future costs to the Company estimated at $1.7 million to $2.0 million, and to reimburse EPA for approximately $1.25 million of interim oversight costs. On August 15, 2016, the Court entered a Consent Judgment implementing the remedy provided for by the amendment.

The Village additionally asserted that the Company is liable for the costs associated with enhanced treatment required by the impact of the groundwater plume from the site on two public water supply wells, including historical total costs ranging from approximately $1.8 million to in excess of $2.5 million, and future operation and maintenance costs which the Village estimated at $126,400 annually while the enhanced treatment continues. On December 14, 2007, the Village filed a complaint (the "Village Lawsuit") against the Company and the owner of the property under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (“RCRA”), the Safe Drinking Water Act, and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (“CERCLA”) as well as a number of state law theories in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, seeking an injunction requiring the defendants to remediate contamination from the site and to establish their liability for future costs that may be incurred in connection with it.

In June 2016, the Company and the Village reached an agreement providing for the Village to continue to operate and maintain the well head treatment systems in accordance with the Record of Decision and to release its claims against the Company asserted in the Village Lawsuit in exchange for a lump-sum payment of $10.0 million by the Company. On August 25, 2016, the Village Lawsuit was dismissed with prejudice. The cost of the settlement with the Village and the estimated costs associated with the Company's compliance with the Consent Judgment were covered by the Company's existing provision for the site. The settlement with the Village did not have, and the Company expects that the Consent Judgment will not have, a material effect on its financial condition or results of operations.

Legal Proceedings, Continued

In April 2015, the Company received from EPA a Notice of Potential Liability and Demand for Costs pursuant to CERCLA regarding the site in Gloversville, New York of a former leather tannery operated by the Company and by other, unrelated parties. The Notice demanded payment of approximately $2.2 million of response costs claimed by EPA to have been incurred to conduct assessments and removal activities at the site. In February 2017, the Company and EPA entered into a settlement agreement resolving EPA's claim for past response costs in exchange for a payment by the Company of $1.5 million which was paid in May 2017. The Company's environmental insurance carrier reimbursed the Company for 75% of the settlement amount, subject to a $500,000 self-insured retention. The Company does not expect that the matter will have a material effect on its financial condition or results of operations.

Whitehall Environmental Matters
The Company has performed sampling and analysis of soil, sediments, surface water, groundwater and waste management areas at the Company's former Volunteer Leather Company facility in Whitehall, Michigan.

In October 2010, the Company and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Environment entered into a Consent Decree providing for implementation of a remedial Work Plan for the facility site designed to bring the site into compliance with applicable regulatory standards. The Work Plan's implementation is substantially complete and the Company expects, based on its present understanding of the condition of the site, that its future obligations with respect to the site will be limited to periodic monitoring and that future costs related to the site should not have a material effect on its financial condition or results of operations.

Accrual for Environmental Contingencies
Related to all outstanding environmental contingencies, the Company had accrued $2.9 million as of October 28, 2017, $4.4 million as of January 28, 2017 and $3.9 million as of October 29, 2016. All such provisions reflect the Company's estimates of the most likely cost (undiscounted, including both current and noncurrent portions) of resolving the contingencies, based on facts and circumstances as of the time they were made. The Company paid $10.0 million of the accrued total at July 30, 2016 in August 2016. There is no assurance that relevant facts and circumstances will not change, necessitating future changes to the provisions. Such contingent liabilities are included in the liability arising from provision for discontinued operations on the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets because it relates to former facilities operated by the Company. The Company has made pretax accruals for certain of these contingencies, including approximately $0.1 million reflected in each of the third quarters of Fiscal 2018 and 2017, and $0.4 million and $0.2 million reflected in the first nine months of Fiscal 2018 and 2017, respectively. These charges are included in provision for discontinued operations, net in the Consolidated Statements of Operations and represent changes in estimates.

Other Matters
On February 22, 2017, a former employee of a subsidiary of the Company filed a putative class and collective action, Shumate v. Genesco, Inc., et al., in the U.S District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, alleging violations of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA") and Ohio wages and hours law including failure to pay minimum wages and overtime to the subsidiary's store managers and seeking back pay, damages, penalties, and declaratory and injunctive relief. On April 21, 2017, a former employee of the same subsidiary filed a putative class and collective action, Ward v. Hat World, Inc., in the Superior Court for the State of Washington, alleging violations of the FLSA and Washington wages and hours laws, including, among others, failure to pay overtime to certain loss prevention investigators, and seeking back pay, damages, attorneys' fees and other relief. The Company has removed the action to U.S. District Court. On May 19, 2017, two former employees of the same subsidiary filed a putative class and collective action, Chen and Salas v. Genesco Inc., et al., in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois alleging violations of the FLSA and Illinois and New York wages and hours laws, including, among others, failure to pay overtime to store managers, and also seeking back pay, damages, statutory penalties, and declaratory and injunctive relief. The Company disputes the material allegations in these complaints and intends to defend the matters.

On April 30, 2015, an employee of the same subsidiary filed an action, Stewart v. Hat World, Inc., et al., under the California Labor Code Private Attorneys General Act on behalf of herself, the State of California, and other non-exempt, hourly-paid employees of the subsidiary in California, seeking unspecified damages and penalties for various alleged violations of the California Labor Code, including failure to pay for all hours worked, minimum wage and overtime violations, failure to provide required meal and rest periods, failure to timely pay wages, failure to provide complete and accurate wage statements, and failure to provide full reimbursement of business-related costs and expenses incurred in the course of employment. The Company disputes the material allegations in the complaint and intends to defend the matter.

In addition to the matters specifically described in this Note, the Company is a party to other legal and regulatory proceedings and claims arising in the ordinary course of its business. While management does not believe that the Company's liability with respect to any of these other matters is likely to have a material effect on its financial statements, legal proceedings are subject to inherent uncertainties and unfavorable rulings could have a material adverse impact on the Company's financial statements.
