LEXINGTON, Ky., March 12, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Tempur Sealy International, Inc. (NYSE: TPX, "Company" or "Tempur Sealy") today provided an update with respect to the Company's acquisition of Mattress Firm Group Inc. ("Mattress Firm"). On May 9, 2023, Tempur Sealy signed a definitive agreement to acquire Mattress Firm, the largest mattress specialty retailer in the U.S. The Company continues to work with the Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") to advance the transaction, and now expects that the FTC will complete its review by the end of the second quarter. Consistent with previous expectations, the Company continues to expect the transaction to close in mid to late 2024.

Tempur Sealy and Mattress Firm continue to make joint progress in planning for post-closing, including solidifying Mattress Firm's key supplier relationships ahead of the expected closing. Since announcing the acquisition, Tempur Sealy has executed post-closing supply agreements with six (6) other mattress manufacturers, including Purple Innovation, Inc. These contracts are consistent with the Company's plan for Mattress Firm to continue as a multi-branded retailer.

Tempur Sealy Chairman and CEO Scott Thompson commented, "Since announcing the acquisition in May, Tempur Sealy has signed post-closing supply agreements with numerous existing Mattress Firm suppliers, as well as a new supply agreement with a manufacturer not currently supplying Mattress Firm. We have engaged a critical mass of suppliers to provide a robust and diverse offering of high quality bedding products to Mattress Firm customers. These developments are consistent with our plan and expectation that Mattress Firm will continue as a multi-branded retailer post-closing.  We look forward to working with quality suppliers and the Mattress Firm organization to facilitate continued innovation and improve the sleep of consumers."
