Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

On July 18, 2022, La-Z-Boy Incorporated (the “Company”) issued a news release announcing that it is finalizing the planned closure of its Newton, Mississippi upholstery manufacturing facility (the “Newton Upholstery Facility”), expected to be effective September 16, 2022. The Newton-based integrated internal supply and other functions will remain in operation and the individuals who work across these areas will remain with the Company. In a Current Report on Form 8-K filed on June 4, 2020, the Company had previously announced that it would close the Newton Upholstery Facility to strengthen and re-align the business in a new external environment marked by COVID-19. In an earnings release filed with its Current Report on Form 8-K filed on November 17, 2020, the Company subsequently announced that it had temporarily re-activated a portion of the Newton Upholstery Facility due to stronger-than expected demand. Over the past two years, the Company has added capacity to its manufacturing footprint and rebalanced production across its North American manufacturing space to leverage efficiencies and manage its backlog. A copy of the July 18, 2022 news release is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1.

The information provided pursuant to this Item 7.01, including Exhibit 99.1, is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities under that Section and shall not be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing of the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in any such filing.
