Regulation FD Disclosure, Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Fi

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure

On January 20, 2014, Kimball International, Inc. (the "Company") announced that its Board of Directors (the "Board") approved a plan to enhance shareholder value through a tax free spin-off of its Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) Segment. The spin-off will result in two standalone publicly-traded companies:
Kimball International, Inc. - an industry leader in the sale and manufacture of quality office and hospitality furniture; and Kimball Electronics, Inc. - a leading global provider of electronic manufacturing services to the automotive, medical, industrial, and public safety markets. The Board expects the spin-off, which is intended to be tax-free to shareholders, to be completed in approximately 8 - 12 months.

Execution of the transaction requires further work on structure, management, governance and other significant matters. The completion of the spin-off is subject to certain customary conditions, including receipt of a legal opinion as to the tax-free nature of the spin-off and regulatory approvals, as well as certain other matters. The Company can make no assurance that any spin-off transaction will ultimately occur, or, if one does occur, its terms or timing.
