Leggett & Platt, Inc Reaffirms Earnings Guidance for the Fiscal Year 2014

Leggett & Platt Inc. reaffirmed earnings guidance for the fiscal year 2014. For the period, the company forecasting adjusted net income in a range of $1.05 to $1.20 per share, including a $0.65 per share impairment.

Leggett & Platt Reaches Tentative Settlement of Antitrust Claims

Leggett & Platt expected to record a $39.8 million (pre-tax), or approximate $0.18 per share, third quarter accrual for the settlement of the U.S. direct purchaser class portion of the polyurethane foam antitrust claims filed against the company and numerous other defendants. This claim is partially related to the former Prime Foam Products business, which was sold in the first quarter of 2007. Accordingly, approximately one-quarter of the charge is expected to be reflected in discontinued operations. Apart from this charge, the company reiterated the underlying full year EPS guidance issued in July. As previously disclosed, Leggett & Platt, along with many other companies, is a defendant in a series of civil antitrust lawsuits involving the sale of polyurethane foam. The company continues to deny all allegations in all of the cases, but has reached a tentative settlement in the U.S. direct purchaser class cases to avoid the uncertainty, expense and distraction of litigation. The company has agreed to pay a total amount of $39.8 million, including plaintiff attorneys' fees and costs. The settlement is subject to Court approval.

Leggett & Platt Announces Increased Quarterly Dividend for the Third Quarter of 2014
