Sleep Number Recent Accolades Underscore Strategic Innovation and Financial Discipline

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 10, 2015-- Select Comfort Corporation (NASDAQ: SCSS) has received recognition in the past month for its proprietary sleep innovations, excellence in in-store design and strong corporate governance, underscoring the Company’s differentiated strategy, financial discipline and growing competitive advantage.

The Company’s Sleep Number® beds provide individualized comfort and the knowledge to adjust for your best night’s sleep by leveraging SleepIQ® technology. Both the Sleep Number® i8 bed and c2 bed were recently named to the list of “best mattresses for couples” by a leading consumer magazine. To determine ratings, the publication performed rigorous mattress testing based on common mattress-buying criteria such as comfort, firmness, resistance to bounciness and ease of movement.

In addition, the Sleep Number® store design was honored by the Association for Retail Environments (A.R.E.) in March for its innovative, interactive and differentiated retail experience. The Company received the Silver Award in the Hardline Specialty Store category (up to 3,000 sq. ft.) during the A.R.E.’s 2015 Awards ceremony.

And, for the first time, Select Comfort was named to Forbes’ annual list of the 100 Most Trustworthy Companies In America. To create the list, MSCI ESG Research screened more than 5,500 publicly traded North American companies to identify the top 100 companies that consistently demonstrate transparent accounting practices and solid corporate governance.

“We are honored to receive this recognition from three highly-respected entities,” said Shelly Ibach, President and CEO of Select Comfort. “It reflects the strength of our deliberate, consumer-driven innovation strategy and the character and dedication of our team as we continue to create superior shareholder value.”
