Leggett & Platt's Board of Directors declared a $.25 per share dividend for the second quarter. This represents a 39% increase over last year's second quarter dividend of $.18 per share. The dividend will be paid on July 15, 2008 to shareholders of record on June 13, 2008.

Leggett has increased its annual dividend for 37 consecutive years, at an average compound growth rate of over 14%. Only one other S&P 500 company has achieved as long a string of consecutive annual dividend increases at the growth rate Leggett has sustained.
