06/22/2012| 09:35pm US/Eastern
Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that a class action lawsuit has
been filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District
of Kentucky on behalf of a class comprising all persons or entities who
purchased or otherwise acquired the common stock of Tempur-Pedic
International, Inc. ("Tempur-Pedic" or the "Company") (NYSE:TPX) between
January 25, 2012 and June 5, 2012, inclusive (the "Class Period").
Tempur-Pedic manufactures, markets and distributes bedding products in
North America and internationally. The Complaint alleges that,
throughout the Class Period, the defendants issued materially false and
misleading statements concerning the Company's business and operations.
Specifically, the Complaint alleges that the defendants misrepresented
and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company's profit and revenue
forecasts issued in January 2012 were lacking in any reasonable basis;
(2) at the time the Company issued its profit and revenue forecast in
January 2012, Company insiders knew that the competitive landscape in
its industry was more difficult than described and would thus make the
Company's guidance impossible to achieve; (3) certain Company insiders
capitalized on this material adverse information to sell Tempur-Pedic
shares at inflated prices before the truth concerning the Company's
sales information was disclosed to the market; (4) the Company lacked
adequate internal and financial controls; and (5), as a result of the
foregoing, the Company's statements concerning its business and
operational prospects were materially false and misleading at all
No class has yet been certified in the above action. Until a class is

you purchased Tempur-Pedic common stock between January 25, 2012 and
