Tempur Sealy Increases Share Repurchase Authorization
–Authorization Increased to $1.5 Billion
LEXINGTON, KY, December 13, 2021 – Tempur Sealy International, Inc. (NYSE: TPX, “Tempur Sealy” or “Company”) today announced that its Board of Directors has increased the authorization under the Company’s share repurchase program to a total of $1.5 billion. Tempur Sealy repurchased approximately 20 million shares at an aggregate cost of approximately $700 million in the trailing twelve months ended September 30, 2021.
Company Chairman and CEO Scott Thompson commented, “This newest share repurchase authorization represents approximately 15 percent of the Company’s current market capitalization. We expect to execute on this authorization while maintaining a leverage ratio below the mid-point of our long-term target range of 2 to 3 times adjusted EBITDA.”
Stock repurchases under this program may be made through open market transactions, negotiated purchases or otherwise, at times and in such amounts as management deems appropriate. The timing and actual number of shares repurchased will depend on a variety of factors including price, financing and regulatory requirements and other market conditions. The program does not require the purchase of any minimum number of shares and may be suspended, modified or discontinued at any time without prior notice. Repurchases may be made under a Rule 10b5-1 plan, which would permit shares to be repurchased when the Company might otherwise be precluded from doing so under federal securities laws.

Such statements might include information concerning one or more of the Company's plans, guidance, objectives, goals, strategies, and other information that is not historical information. When used in this release, the words “expect” and variations of such words or similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements relating to the Company's expectations regarding its share repurchase plans. Any forward-looking statements contained herein are based upon current expectations and beliefs and various assumptions. There can be no assurance that the Company will realize these expectations or that these beliefs will prove correct.
