("Furniture Brands" or the "Company") (OTC: FBNIQ) of the October 15, 2013 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain executives.
A complaint has been filed on behalf of all persons who purchased or otherwise acquired Furniture Brands common stock between February 13, 2013 and August 5, 2013.

Specifically, the action alleges that Furniture Brands made false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the Company had severe liquidity issues; (ii) Furniture Brands had inflated the values of its trade names and thus would be affected by material impairments; and (iii) the Company was suffering from weaknesses in its wholesale business.
On August 6, 2013, Furniture Brands announced financial results for the second quarter, revealing several problems, including its liquidity challenges and trade name impairments. Following this news, the Company's stock dropped more than 38%.
