The Rosen Law Firm Announces Investigation of Furniture Brands, Inc. - FBN


NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Rosen Law Firm announces that it is investigating potential securities fraud claims against Furniture Brands, Inc. (NYS: FBN) resulting from allegations that the Company may have fraudulently overstated the value of its trade name.

FBN carries its trade name on its books as an asset. FBN determines its trade name's value by carrying out tests in the fourth quarter of its calendar fiscal year. In its 2012 10-K, filed March 6, 2013, FBN carried its trade name on its books at a value of about $76 million (out of about $618 of total assets), after an impairment of about $1.1 million from the test it had run in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Between July 17, 2013, and August 2, 2013, FBN's Chief Executive Officer and his wife sold about 250,000 FBN shares, for proceeds of about $675,000, including over 140,000 shares sold on August 1-2 for about $325,000.

Then, on August 6, FBN announced its results for the second quarter of 2013. FBN reported that it had recorded a goodwill impairment of over $10.8 million. That day, FBN's stock price fell by 38%, damaging investors.

The Rosen Law Firm is investigating a securities class action lawsuit on behalf of FBN investors.
