Item 8.01. Other Events.
        On December 6, 2019, Tempur Sealy International, Inc. (the "Company") determined that it will record a charge of $30 million (before tax) in the fourth quarter of 2019, in connection with the bankruptcy of one of its customers, Mattress PAL Holding, LLC ("Mattress PAL"), and the resulting significant liquidity issues of Mattress PAL's affiliates (collectively, "Mattress1One"). On April 7, 2019, Mattress PAL filed a voluntary petition in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida, Orlando Division (“Bankruptcy Court") seeking relief under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code ("Chapter 11 Proceedings"). On December 5, 2019, the Bankruptcy Court orally granted Mattress PAL's request to convert the Chapter 11 Proceedings to a Chapter 7 liquidation case. The Company plans to treat this charge, which does not involve any cash payments, as an adjustment in calculating adjusted EBITDA under the Company’s senior secured credit agreement.
Mattress1One represented less than 1% of the Company's global net sales in 2019, and the Company does not expect this charge, or the loss of Mattress1One as a customer, to have a material impact on the Company's 2019 guidance, 2020 outlook, or current or future liquidity.
