April 19th, this was issued after Q1 results. Folks, the world doesn't often change that much in 47 days. Something is amiss, but this this PPS is a joke right now. Buy all you can right now IMHO.
Chief Executive Officer Mark Sarvary commented, "In the first quarter we delivered solid financial performance, enhanced our product range with the introduction of TEMPUR-Simplicity and increased our investment in advertising by 37% to $47 million. We are excited about the rollout of our new dealer programs beginning in the second quarter."
