Select Comfort Provides Business Performance Update

Select Comfort Corporation (NASDAQ: SCSS) today reported it has experienced below-plan sales since Feb. 1, 2013 and will likely miss its internal goals for the first quarter.

“We believe this is a short-term issue associated with accelerated changes made to our media-buying strategy, and we are making the necessary corrections to both media buying and near-term expenses,” said Shelly Ibach, president and CEO, Select Comfort. “We remain confident in our growth formula and are committed to our strategy of delivering an unparalleled sleep experience for our customers.”

The company plans to discuss its outlook for the balance of the year following the release of first-quarter financial results scheduled for April 17, 2013. The company does not provide quarterly financial guidance and does not plan to provide additional commentary regarding first-quarter sales or earnings performance prior to April 17, 2013.
