Quarterly Report

2007 Long-Term Management Incentive Plan (2007 Plan)

The plan provides for shares of common stock and cash to be awarded to officers and key employees based on performance targets set by the Nominating and Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors (the "Committee"). The Company's shareholders approved 500,000 shares to be issued under the plan. Due to the adoption of the Long-Term Incentive Compensation Plan in December 2013, no additional shares can be awarded under the 2007 Plan. As of March 31, 2014, 189,030 shares have been issued. The Committee selected consolidated operating results for organic net sales growth and fully-diluted earnings per share as the performance goal for the three-year performance periods beginning July 1, 2011 and ending on June 30, 2014 and beginning July 1, 2012 and ending on June 30, 2015. The Committee has also specified that payouts, if any, for awards earned in these performance periods will be 60% stock and 40% cash. Awards will be paid to participants as soon as practicable following the end of the performance periods subject to Committee approval and verification of results. The compensation cost related to the number of shares to be granted under each performance period is fixed on the grant date, which is the date the performance period begins. The compensation cost related to the cash portion of the award is re-measured based on the equity award's estimated fair value at the end of each reporting period. The accrual is based on the probable outcomes of the performance conditions. The short-term portion of the recorded cash award payable is classified within current liabilities, payroll and related items, and the long-term portion of the recorded cash award payable is classified within other long-term liabilities in the Consolidated Balance Sheets. As of March 31, 2014 and June 30, 2013, the Company has recorded cash awards payable of $0.7 million and $0.6 million within current liabilities and $0.4 million and $0.4 million within long-term liabilities, respectively. During the quarters ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, the Company recorded expense of $0.4 million and $0.4 million, respectively. For the nine month periods ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, the Company recorded expense of $1.0 million and $1.1 million, respectively.

If the target performance goals would be achieved, the total amount of compensation cost recognized over the requisite service periods would be $0.9 million (2012-2014) and $1.0 million (2013-2015) based on the estimated fair values at March 31, 2014.

(2) Stock Plans

Omnibus Stock Plan

The Omnibus Stock Plan is for key employees, officers and directors and provides for the granting of incentive and nonqualified stock options, restricted stock, restricted stock units, stock appreciation rights and performance units. In December 2013, the Company's shareholders approved 700,000 shares to be issued under the plan. The options are exercisable up to 10 years from the date of grant. It is the Company's policy to issue new shares upon exercise of stock options. The Company accepts shares of the Company's common stock as payment for the exercise price of options. These shares received as payment are retired upon receipt.

At March 31, 2014, 641,550 shares were available for future grants. During the quarter ended March 31, 2014 the Company recorded no expense related to this plan. During the nine months ended March 31, 2014, the Company recorded expense of $0.4 million.

2006 and 2009 Stock Option Plans

The stock option plans were for key employees, officers and directors and provided for granting incentive and nonqualified stock options. Under the plans, options were granted at an exercise price equal to the fair market value of the underlying common stock at the date of grant and exercisable for up to 10 years. All options were exercisable when granted. Due to the adoption of the Omnibus Stock Plan in December 2013, no additional options can be granted under the 2006 and 2009 stock option plans.

There were no options granted and no expense was recorded under these Plans during the three and nine months ended March 31, 2014. During the quarter ended March 31, 2013, no expense was recorded for these plans. For the nine month periods ended March 31, 2013, the Company recorded expense of $0.5 million.

6. EARNINGS PER SHARE

Basic earnings per share (EPS) of common stock is based on the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during each period. Diluted earnings per share of common stock includes the dilutive effect of potential common shares outstanding. The Company's potential common shares outstanding are stock options and shares associated with the long-term management incentive compensation plan. The Company calculates the dilutive effect of outstanding options using the treasury stock method. Anti-dilutive shares are not included in the computation of diluted EPS when their exercise price is greater than the average closing market price of the common shares. The Company calculates the dilutive effect of shares related to the long-term management incentive compensation plan based on the number of shares, if any, that would be issuable if the end of the fiscal period were the end of the contingency period.

In computing EPS for the quarters and nine months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, net income as reported for each respective period is divided by the fully diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding:

                                      Three Months Ended       Nine Months Ended

7. LITIGATION

Indiana Civil Litigation - In December 2013, the Company entered into a confidential agreement to settle the Indiana Civil Litigation. The Company paid $6.3 million to Plaintiffs to settle the matter without admission of wrongdoing. The Company continues to believe that it did not cause or contribute to the contamination. This settlement is recorded as Litigation Settlement Costs in the Consolidated Statements of Income.

During the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, the Company recorded $0.2 million and $0.6 million, respectively, in legal and other related expenses that were incurred responding to the lawsuits and pursuing insurance coverage. During the nine months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, the Company recorded $2.0 million and $1.7 million, respectively, in legal and other related expenses. These expenses are included in Selling, General and Administrative (SG&A) expense in the Consolidated Statements of Income.

During the three and nine months ended March 31, 2014, the Company received approximately $0.4 million and $2.1 million, respectively, from insurance carriers to reimburse the Company for certain legal defense costs. These reimbursement amounts are recorded in SG&A as a reduction of legal expenses. The Company will continue to pursue the recovery of additional defense and settlement costs from insurance carriers. Based on policy language and jurisdiction, insurance coverage is in question.

Other Proceedings - From time to time, the Company is subject to various other legal proceedings, including lawsuits, which arise out of, and are incidental to, the conduct of the Company's business. The Company does not consider any of such other proceedings that are currently pending, individually or in the aggregate, to be material to its business or likely to result in a material effect on its consolidated operating results, financial condition, or cash flows.

Gross margin for the nine months ended March 31, 2014 was 22.8% of net sales compared to 23.5% of net sales in the prior year nine month period. The decrease in the current year period was primarily due to price discounting on certain case goods to address changing customer requirements.


In December 2013, the Company entered into an agreement to settle Indiana civil litigation in order to eliminate the ongoing costs and distraction of the litigation. In February 2014, the Company contributed $6.3 million to the settlement as part of an agreement whose terms are otherwise confidential. In reaching the agreement, the Company does not admit any wrongdoing and believes that it did not cause or contribute to the contamination at issue. This amount is recorded as litigation settlement costs in the Consolidated Statements of Income. The cost to defend the Company in this litigation, net of amounts reimbursed by insurance companies, is recorded as SG&A expense in the financial statements. The Company continues to pursue recovery of defense and settlement costs from insurance carriers.

SG&A expense for the nine month period ended March 31, 2014 was 16.8% of net sales compared to 18.6% of net sales, respectively. The nine month period ended March 31, 2014 includes a $1.0 million increase in supplemental retirement plan expense as compared to the prior year period. The Company incurred approximately $2.0 million of legal defense costs during the nine month period ended March 31, 2014 which has been recorded in SG&A expense. The Company has received reimbursements of legal defense costs of approximately $2.1 million from insurers and this has been reflected as a reduction in selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for the nine months ended March 31, 2014. SG&A expense for the prior nine month period ended March 31, 2013 includes legal defense costs related to the Indiana civil litigation of $1.7 million and executive transition costs of $1.3 million.

Operating income for the nine months ended March 31, 2014 was $13.5 million compared to operating income of $13.9 million in the prior year period.

Interest and other income for the nine month period ended March 31, 2014 increased $1.0 million compared to the prior year nine month period. The increase reflects realized gains of $1.2 million resulting from the sale of investments held for the purpose of funding the Supplemental Retirement Plans.

The effective income tax expense rate for the current nine month period was 37.1% compared to an income tax expense rate of 37.3% in the prior year period. The effective rates include the federal statutory rate as well as the effect of the various state taxing jurisdictions.

The above factors resulted in net income for the nine months ended March 31, 2014 of $9.4 million or $1.24 per share compared to $8.9 million or $1.22 per share for the prior year period. All earnings per share amounts are on a diluted basis.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Working capital (current assets less current liabilities) at March 31, 2014 was $122.3 million compared to $113.7 million at June 30, 2013. Primary changes in working capital from June 30, 2013 to March 31, 2014 include increases in cash of $6.4 million and accounts receivable of $4.3 million. The increase in accounts receivable is due to increased sales volume and timing of related shipments and collections.

The Company maintains a credit agreement which provides short-term working capital financing up to $10.0 million with interest of LIBOR plus 1%, including up to $4.0 million of letters of credit. Letters of credit outstanding at March 31, 2014 totaled $2.7 million, leaving borrowing availability of $7.3 million. The Company did not utilize any borrowing availability under the credit facility during the period other than the aforementioned letters of credit. The credit agreement expires on June 30, 2015. At March 31, 2014, the Company was in compliance with all of the financial covenants contained in the credit agreement.

The Company maintains an unsecured $8.0 million line of credit, with interest at prime minus 2%, with a maturity date of February 13, 2015 and where its routine banking transactions are processed. The Company did not utilize any borrowing availability during the period and no amount was outstanding on the line of credit at March 31, 2014.

Contractual Obligations

As of March 31, 2014, there have been no material changes to our contractual obligations presented in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2013.

Outlook

Due to existing strong order backlog and positive order trends the Company expects top line growth will continue for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2014. The Company's order backlog of $51 million at March 31, 2014 is up 16% from March 31, 2013. Residential growth is expected from existing customers and products, and through expanding our product portfolio and customer base. The Company believes this growth will be led by increased demand for upholstered and ready to assemble products. The Company anticipates sales of commercial products to moderately increase for the fiscal year 2014 fourth quarter. The Company is confident in its ability to take advantage of market opportunities.

The Company has started two multi-year initiatives designed to enhance customer experience and increase shareholder value. In anticipation of future growth we completed a logistics strategy, and are assessing our business information requirements. The timing and level of investment required for these initiatives will be determined as the projects progress.

The Company remains committed to its core strategies, which include a wide range of quality product offerings and price points to the residential and commercial markets, combined with a conservative approach to business. We will maintain our focus on a strong balance sheet through emphasis on cash flow and increasing profitability. We believe these core strategies are in the best interest of our shareholders.
