Closure of Carousel Designs


On May 11, 2021, the Company announced that it is closing the operations of Carousel Designs, effective May 21, 2021. The Carousel Designs manufacturing facility in Douglasville, Georgia, and its direct-to-consumer website, www.babybedding.com, will cease operations on that date. Carousel Designs will work to fulfill any customer orders placed prior to the closing date. Any customers whose orders cannot be fulfilled will receive full refunds.


On May 5, 2021, the Company’s Board of Directors approved the closure of Carousel Designs due to high costs, declining sales and continued losses associated with the subsidiary. The Company expects to record charges totaling $2.8 million to $3.4 million in connection with the closure of Carousel Designs. These charges consist of approximately $2.5 million to $2.8 million of noncash charges for the impairment of property, plant and equipment and intangible assets, employee related costs of approximately $100,000, and contract termination costs ranging from $200,000 to $500,000. The impairment charges are expected to be recorded in fiscal 2021. The cash charges for employee and contract related costs are expected to be recorded in fiscal 2022.
