La-Z-Boy reports surprise fiscal Q1 profit on 'strong' demandShares of La-Z-Boy Inc. fell about 1% in the extended session Tuesday after the furniture maker reported a surprise fiscal first-quarter profit and said it has seen "strong demand" for its recliners and other pieces. The company said it earned $4.8 million, or 10 cents a share, in the quarter, compared with 38 cents a share a year ago. Adjusted for one-time items, La-Z-Boy earned 18 cents a share, compared with 42 cents a share a year ago. Sales fell 31% to $285.5 million due to the impact of COVID-19, the company said. Analysts polled by FactSet had expected an adjusted loss of 13 cents a share on sales of $290 million. "Our first quarter began in May with most of our customers still closed due to COVID-19. However, as retailers re-opened, written orders rapidly accelerated in June and July, with consumers spending a higher percentage of discretionary dollars on home furnishings," Chief Executive Kurt L. Darrow said in a statement. La-Z-Boy has re-opened all its operations across its retail, distribution and manufacturing businesses, and plants have increased production to meet demand. The company is "cautiously optimistic" about the fall, it said. Shares ended the regular trading session down nearly 2%.

La-Z-Boy to lay off 850 people, close Mississippi plantLa-Z-Boy Inc. said late Thursday it will lay off about 10% of its workforce, or 850 employees, across its business and including an upholstery factory in Mississippi. Production will be shifted to available capacity at the company's plants in Tennessee, Missouri, and Arkansas, La-Z-Boy said. The Mississippi plant, built in 1960, employs about 300 people and accounts for about 10% of the company's upholstery production as well as making the company's recliners and other furniture. The coronavirus pandemic "has had a far-reaching impact," Chief Executive Kurt L. Darrow said in a statement. The company "responded quickly" and as a result "we are confident we will emerge from the crisis with strength and remain a leader in the industry," Darrow said. " Since restarting production at the majority of our plants at the end of April, we have steadily increased production and continue to bring back more employees to meet demand." It is appropriate, however, to "right size" the business, Darrow said. "Still, these are difficult decisions to make and we deeply regret the impact they will have on those employees who are affected." La-Z-Boy expects to spend about $5 million to $7 million in fiscal 2021 in pre-tax charges related to these moves. The company is slated to report fiscal 2020 fourth-quarter and full-year results on June 23 after the bell.

Steelcase said it was easing the reductions in pay and work hours for employees that were implemented in March and April. The company said revenue for the March-April period fell 39% from a year ago, with March revenue down 21% and April revenue down 60%.
