      On June 19, 2003, Leggett & Platt, Incorporated (the "Company") completed
the pricing of a public debt offering of approximately $150 million principal
amount of 4.4% notes due July 1, 2018. The net proceeds of approximately $147
million will be used for general corporate purposes, which may include the
repayment or refinancing of existing indebtedness, stock repurchases and/or to
fund possible future acquisitions. Interest on the notes is payable
semi-annually on each January 1 and July 1, beginning on January 1, 2004. The
transaction is scheduled to close on June 24, 2003.

      All of the notes are redeemable, in whole or in part, at the Company's
option, at any time or from time to time, at a redemption price equal to the
greater of (i) 100 percent of the principal amount of the notes, or (ii) as
determined by a Quotation Agent (as defined therein) the sum of the present
values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest thereon
(not including any portion of those payments of interest accrued as of the date
of redemption) discounted to the date of redemption on a semi-annual basis
(assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months) at the Adjusted
Treasury Rate (as defined therein) plus 15 basis points plus, in each case,
accrued interest thereon to the date of redemption.

      The offering will only be made by means of a prospectus, which may be
obtained from JP Morgan, 270 Park Avenue, New York, New York, 10017. This Form
8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to
buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state in which such
offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or
qualification under the securities laws of any such state.
