MONROE, Mich., Nov. 15, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- La-Z-Boy Incorporated (NYSE: LZB) today announced net sales for the fiscal 2011 second quarter of $293 million, down 2.6% from the prior year's second quarter, reflecting weakness in the housing market and low levels of consumer confidence. The company also announced that it is delaying the release of its fiscal 2011 second-quarter operating results in order to finalize accounting issues primarily involving the company's dealer entities that are consolidated as Variable Interest Entities (VIEs). La-Z-Boy believes the accounting issues will have no impact to the company's second-quarter earnings per share, as adjustments will be made to prior periods.
