Tempur Sealy Mails Letter To Shareholders Underscoring Strengths Of Board Of Directors

Egan Jones Recommends FOR ALL Tempur Sealy Director Nominees; Company Comments on ISS Report

Urges Tempur Sealy Shareholders to Vote "FOR" ALL Tempur Sealy Director Nominees on WHITE Proxy Card Today

Apr 22, 2015, 14:00 ET from Tempur Sealy International, Inc.

LEXINGTON, Ky., April 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Tempur Sealy International, Inc. (NYSE: TPX), the world's largest bedding provider, today mailed a letter to its shareholders in connection with the Company's upcoming Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the "Annual Meeting") to be held on May 8, 2015. This letter and other materials regarding the Board of Directors' recommendation for the 2015 Annual Meeting can be found on the special Annual Meeting section of the Company's website at Investor.TempurSealy.com/AnnualMeeting.

Tempur Sealy also today announced that Egan Jones Proxy Services, a proxy advisory firm, has recommended that shareholders vote FOR ALL of the Tempur Sealy director nominees on the WHITE proxy card, and issued the following statement in response to the April 21, 2015 report from Institutional Shareholder Services ("ISS"):

We find it concerning that ISS has recommended in favor of an activist shareholder with no plan for value creation at a critical time in the execution of Tempur Sealy's strategy. ISS bases the majority of its opinion on issues stemming from changes in the competitive environment in 2012, ignoring the fact that in the time since, the Tempur Sealy Board and management team have taken decisive action to address those challenges and realized meaningful results for shareholders. The ISS recommendation is equally questionable in light of the fact that ISS has consistently supported the election of ALL Tempur Sealy director nominees in each year since 2011. And further exacerbating this issue is a January 2015 handwritten note from an H Partners principal to Tempur Sealy CEO Mark Sarvary, praising the "incredible progress" underway at the Company.  

Consequently, Tempur Sealy questions the merit of the ISS report and believes that it demonstrates a lack of understanding of the fundamentals of our industry and the benefits of the diverse perspectives that our directors bring to the Board, including experience as private equity investors.

The Tempur Sealy Board of Directors and management team are taking appropriate steps to further drive enhanced performance and profitable growth. The Board is composed of 11 highly engaged directors with extensive industry and operational experience, nine of which are independent, and all of whom are overseeing a clearly articulated strategy that is continuing to create value for all shareholders.

The full text of the letter to be mailed to shareholders is below:

TIME IS SHORT – THE TEMPUR SEALY ANNUAL MEETING IS MAY 8TH

VOTE 'FOR' THE TEMPUR SEALY BOARD ON THE WHITE PROXY CARD TODAY

April 22, 2015

Dear Fellow Tempur Sealy Shareholder:

We, your Board of Directors, are active and engaged in driving Tempur Sealy's success and pursuing our overarching goal: enhancing value for ALL shareholders. With the Annual Meeting on May 8 fast approaching, we wanted to ensure that you have the FACTS about the strength of your Board. Represented by 11 highly-qualified, experienced directors, the Tempur Sealy Board together possesses diverse and complementary skills that we believe are critical to the Company's future, drive profitability and enhance shareholder value. In particular, we wanted to highlight that:

-- The Tempur Sealy Board Comprises a Group of Independent Thinkers with Experience at the Highest Levels of Public and Private Companies

-- Directors P. Andrews McLane and Christopher A. Masto Bring Extensive, Pertinent Experience as Growth Equity Investors

-- Your Board is Highly Accountable and Committed to Delivering Value for Shareholders

Time is short. Your vote is important. We encourage shareholders to vote "FOR" ALL of Tempur Sealy's directors TODAY by Internet or by phone using the instructions on the WHITE proxy card. We urge you not to return any blue proxy card sent to you by H Partners.

TEMPUR SEALY'S HIGHLY QUALIFIED DIRECTORS ARE BEST-EQUIPPED TO DRIVE GROWTH AND ENHANCE VALUE

MCLANE AND MASTO'S PRIVATE EQUITY EXPERIENCE IS A VALUABLE DIFFERENTIATOR

The Tempur Sealy Board possesses unique perspectives from experiences at well-known and respected companies, private and public, including Cadbury Schweppes, Charles Schwab, Gillette, Heinz, and PricewaterhouseCoopers, and seven of the Company's 11 directors have served as CEOs of businesses of significant scale. Your Board's combined expertise also includes all areas relevant to Tempur Sealy's business and industry as a global consumer business: executive management, manufacturing, finance, accounting, consumer and retail experience, global operations, sales and marketing and innovation.

Furthermore, as many of you know, the bedding industry has long been linked to private equity ("PE") investors and ownership.  Indeed, today our primary competitor is owned by a PE firm, and our two largest customers both have significant PE ownership. As such, experience in and understanding of the PE industry remains pertinent and an important differentiator, which is why we are fortunate to have Chairman of the Board, P. Andrews McLane, and Chair of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, Christopher Masto, two veteran PE growth investors with deep knowledge of the mattress industry, serve on our Board. Their backgrounds are especially valuable when considering issues relating to capital structure, capital allocation and M&A transactions – all key elements of our growth and profitability initiatives.  In fact, if Messrs. McLane and Masto were not already members of the Board, we would actively search for directors with their exact skillset.

It is thanks to the experiences and relevant backgrounds of your engaged Board that Tempur Sealy has delivered superior long-term performance and shareholder value creation, including realizing total shareholder return of more than 500% since 2008, more than five times that of the S&P 500.[1]

In all, your Board, with the management team, is overseeing a plan that is working – a carefully considered and deliberate plan that capitalizes on the enormous global potential of Tempur Sealy's portfolio of brands.  The Company has made significant progress against the five strategic priorities at the core of this plan, and as leaders of Tempur Sealy we are committed to executing and driving improved profitability.

VOTE "FOR" MCLANE, MASTO AND SARVARY TODAY

At this critical time in Tempur Sealy's history, H Partners, a shareholder of the Company, has demanded disruptive leadership changes that we believe will be value-destructive, including the removal from the Board of Messrs. McLane and Masto and our CEO, Mark Sarvary.  We believe these demands are highly-risky and detrimental to the initiatives underway at Tempur Sealy.  Let us take a moment to elaborate on the value-enhancing contributions of Messrs. McLane, Masto and Sarvary, and make clear the loss of experience and leadership that their departure would create for Tempur Sealy and its shareholders.

Messrs. McLane, Masto and Sarvary are proven stewards of value creation for Tempur Sealy shareholders and bring a deep understanding of the Company's operations and shifts in consumer trends in our dynamic industry. They have guided the Company through the transformational acquisition of Sealy Corporation, were directly involved in recruiting most members of the Company's Executive Leadership team, and positioned Tempur Sealy for continued industry leadership and strong growth. They have also overseen numerous third party acquisitions and asset dispositions, capital structure optimization and substantial share repurchase programs that resulted in accelerated shareholder returns.  These are precisely the type of major corporate events where a financial background and the private equity experience of Messrs. McLane and Masto brings critical knowledge and unmatched perspective to the Board. 

Messrs. McLane and Masto have helped to guide the Company's development from a niche product innovator with limited distribution and market share to the world's largest bedding company. During their tenure as directors, Tempur Sealy has:

  • Grown enterprise value from approximately $350 million to approximately $5 billion; and
  • Increased sales from approximately $250 million to approximately $3 billion.

Here are some important facts about these outstanding directors that H Partners is seeking to remove:

 

P. Andrews McLane: Mr. McLane, independent Chairman of the Board, brings 42 years of business and leadership experience to the Tempur Sealy Board. He has significant prior Board and executive leadership experience and a proven track record of driving results and shareholder value creation – at Tempur Sealy and elsewhere. His experience includes:

  • Leading Tempur Sealy's Board in actively overseeing the Company's strategy and its execution, ensuring management accountability and upholding the highest standards in corporate governance.
  • Private equity experience that is vital to Tempur Sealy's strategy in delivering for its largest two customers, Mattress Firm & Sleepy's.
  • Serving as Senior Managing Director at TA Associates, a global private equity manager with $11 billion of capital under management. Before his retirement from TA Associates in 2008, Mr. McLane headed the firm's Financial Services and Consumer Group and served on its Executive Committee for 20 years.
  • Leading investments in 32 companies that delivered an average annual internal rate of return of 35% and an average capital return multiple of 5.7x.
  • Serving on the Board of Directors of 29 companies, including seven public companies.
  • A significant long-term holder of Tempur Sealy stock. Today, Mr. McLane and his wife beneficially own or control approximately 1.30% of the Company's outstanding shares[2].

 

Christopher Masto: Mr. Masto is a veteran investment manager with more than 20 years of strategy, finance and investing experience. His strong financial and strategic skills and history of active involvement at Tempur Sealy have helped drive the Company's growth and development. His experience and attributes also include:

  • Additional growth equity experience that provides important insights into managing and growing companies.
  • As a co-founder of Friedman Fleischer & Lowe ("FFL"), he helped to manage and build the company into a leading private equity firm with over $4.5 billion under management and investments in approximately 30 companies since inception.
  • On average, FFL portfolio companies have grown earnings and book value substantially during FFL's ownership.
  • Former investment banker at Morgan Stanley and management consultant at Bain & Company, providing valuable and diverse experience.

 

Mark Sarvary: Mr. Sarvary, our CEO, has led Tempur Sealy since 2008, and has consistently and successfully leveraged his deep consumer industry expertise to deliver for Tempur Sealy's shareholders. Mr. Sarvary is directly responsible for and has overseen the successful execution of Tempur Sealy's strategy. Mr. Sarvary's contributions at Tempur Sealy and experience include:

  • Transforming the Company with the acquisition of Sealy, creating the world's largest bedding provider.
  • Introducing a record number of new products to drive topline growth – including the TEMPUR Cloud mattress line, which nearly doubled Tempur-Pedic's U.S. mattress business – solidifying Tempur Sealy's industry leadership.
  • Seasoned business leader, previously President of Campbell Soup Company's North America division, responsible for businesses with annual revenues exceeding $6 billion; oversaw sales and earnings growth in each year as President.
  • Building a best-in-class management team that includes executives with a proven track record at a range of blue-chip, global companies.

For each of the past six years, Messrs. McLane, Masto and Sarvary have received votes cast "FOR" their re-election from over 99% of shareholders voting for directors at the Company's annual meetings – including, over the last two years, votes cast "FOR" their re-election from H Partners.

YOUR BOARD IS FOCUSED ON DELIVERING RESULTS FOR SHAREHOLDERS

The Tempur Sealy Board is highly focused on ensuring that the Company is pursuing the right plan for continued growth and enhanced profitability.  We are active and engaged in our oversight of the Company's management and strategy, and hold ourselves to standards that we believe significantly exceed typical Boards.  (Detailed information about all other Tempur Sealy Board members can be found in the appendix below.)

In addition to regular board meetings and the work of our three standing committees, ad hoc committees are a crucial component of our engagement and oversight of the Company, and a tool we have used since our initial public offering.  Under the direction of Messrs. McLane and Sarvary, for example, the Board has formed three ad hoc committees since 2012 focused on the transformative Sealy acquisition:

  • Sealy Acquisition committee, formed in 2012, chaired by Mr. McLane and included Messrs. Masto and Doyle; Directed all activities during evaluation, negotiation and due diligence.
  • Sealy Integration committee, formed in 2013, chaired by Ms. Dilsaver and including Messrs. Hoffman, Masto and Heil; Oversaw all activities during integration, both pre- and post-closing.
  • Sealy Transformation committee, formed in 2014, chaired by Mr. Heil and including Messrs. Rogers and Doyle. This committee, whose members all have extensive manufacturing experience, is overseeing the operational improvement program across Sealy's entire supply chain.

As part of its ongoing strategy-building efforts, approximately every other year, the Tempur Sealy Board holds a strategy session that includes facility tours and meetings with key regional personnel in a location that is relevant to the objectives that the Company is pursuing. For example, in 2011, Tempur Sealy began a major initiative to expand its presence in China. To better understand the opportunities and challenges of expanding its business in China and Asia generally, the Board held an immersive meeting in Shanghai. Similarly the Board has held meetings in London and at the Company's manufacturing plants in Denmark and Albuquerque, New Mexico, and at the Sealy facility in Trinity, North Carolina.

Your Board's engagement with the Company and its management team is deep and hands-on, and extends far beyond scheduled meetings and strategy sessions.  We are in constant contact with Mr. Sarvary, and other key members of the Tempur Sealy leadership team, staying connected and informed on the Company's progress and providing guidance and advice in key areas relating to our individual functional expertise – all to ensure we are driving enhanced value.

YOUR BOARD IS COMMITTED TO STRICT OVERSIGHT AND ENSURING MANAGEMENT ACCOUNTABILITY

Your Board has played a critical role in identifying and retaining Tempur Sealy's management team and key talent.  As part of the Board's oversight of the management team, members of our Board have been directly involved in the recruitment of numerous company leaders – including Mr. Sarvary; David Montgomery, EVP and President of International; Tim Yaggi, Chief Operating Officer; Jay Spenchian, EVP and Chief Marketing Officer; and Rick Anderson, EVP and President of North America – and played a key role in determining the performance-based compensation structure for senior members of management.

Furthermore, the independent Compensation Committee of the Board oversees an executive compensation program that is performance-based and aligned with shareholder interests.  Payouts on annual cash bonus incentives vary significantly depending on results achieved. Bonus payouts for Mr. Sarvary during his tenure have ranged from 25% to 184% of target based on Company performance. This program ensures that management compensation is based on its ability to drive outstanding performance and generate shareholder value.  Similarly, payouts on long-term equity incentives are also based on performance and generate significantly different levels of realized payout than the grant values reflected in proxy compensation tables. Based on multi-year business performance versus key metrics, our CEO's performance restricted stock unit payouts over the years have paid out as high as 282% of target for superior results and have achieved no payout when interim metrics were not achieved. We believe this represents a high-functioning and well-structured compensation model that works: it rewards performance at or above Company targets and penalizes below plan results, ensuring that members of our leadership team are both properly compensated and motivated to perform at the highest level.  

YOUR BOARD FACILITATES REGULAR COMMUNICATION BETWEEN TEMPUR SEALY AND ITS SHAREHOLDERS

We are committed to building and protecting shareholder value and are taking actions to deliver on this responsibility.  To ensure that the Company is taking the right steps to accomplish its objectives, we have recently been on the road meeting with many of our large shareholders to hear their feedback and solicit their input regarding Tempur Sealy.

We have a robust shareholder communications program that is led by our management team, and reviewed in detail by the full Board at every meeting.  We are strong supporters of effective communications with our shareholders and value the development of more engagement between shareholders and directors.  To that end, we are working as a Board to develop over the next year comprehensive programs and mechanisms for increased direct engagement and interaction between our Board and our shareholders.

EGAN JONES RECOMMENDS SHAREHOLDERS VOTE FOR ALL OF TEMPUR SEALY'S DIRECTOR NOMINEES

ISS REPORT DEMONSTRATES A LACK OF KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OF TEMPUR SEALY AND ITS INDUSTRY – AND THE VALUE OF A BOARD WITH DEEP AND COMPLEMENTARY EXPERTISE

We are pleased that Egan Jones Proxy Services, a proxy advisory firm, has recommended that shareholders vote FOR ALL of the Tempur Sealy director nominees on the WHITE proxy card. 

In contrast, in a recent report issued on April 21, 2015, Institutional Shareholders Services (ISS), another proxy advisor firm, makes numerous statements about Tempur Sealy, our strategy and our Board that we believe are misleading and completely disregard the strategic progress we have made over the last several years.  The ISS report focuses on issues stemming from changes in the competitive environment, three years ago in 2012, ignoring the fact that in the time since, the Tempur Sealy Board and management team have taken decisive action to address those challenges and realized meaningful results for shareholders.

We believe shareholders should not give credence to the ISS decisions, given that ISS has consistently supported the election of ALL Tempur Sealy director nominees in each year since 2011, and in 2014 and 2015 awarded the Company and its Board with an overall Governance Quick Score in the top decile category, indicating a strong alignment with corporate governance best practices. Consequently, Tempur Sealy believes the ISS report is without merit and demonstrates a lack of understanding of the fundamentals of our industry and the benefits of the diverse perspectives that our directors bring to the Board, including experience as growth equity investors.

Further, shareholders should keep in mind that ISS evaluates governance issues, and is not an expert on business or investment analysis.  ISS has consistently taken a positive stance regarding our governance structure, and retains its positive view in its latest report.  Its recommendation on director voting is based entirely on its misguided assessment of the business, and it does not point to any meaningful governance concerns.  When it comes to the business analysis, shareholders should carefully consider the independent views of equity analysts that have followed the Company much more closely and understand it far better than ISS. 

For instance, the same day ISS issued its report, Wedbush Securities initiated coverage on Tempur Sealy after concluding a comprehensive review of the Company, our strategy and operations, stating[3]:

"We sympathize with H Partner's frustration over the company's more volatile performance since the industry shifted in 2012 and Tempur Pedic acquired a more complex business in Sealy, but we see little in its proposals to further enhance shareholder value beyond current company plans. We believe the TPX management team has its arms around key issues disrupting its recent performance and the business is poised for inflection. In our view, core Tempur Pedic North America business has returned to a position of strength and the heavy lifting of the Sealy integration is largely done, setting the stage for accelerating profit growth. TPX shares may embed a small premium for potential activist success; nonetheless, we see outperformance on a twelve-month view, assuming H Partners proxy contest is unsuccessful."
-       Seth Basham, analyst, Wedbush Securities (April 21, 2015)
