Mohawk Industries, Inc. Announces Filing of She...

CALHOUN, Georgia, March 9 /PRNewswire/ --

    Mohawk Industries, Inc. (NYSE: MHK) today announced that it has filed a
universal shelf registration statement with the Securities and Exchange
Commission to replace its previous shelf registration statement, which
expired on January 9, 2009. The new statement is effective for three years
and provides flexibility for the issuance of equity, debt or other types of
securities through one or more methods of distribution. The terms of any
future offering would be established at the time of offering subject to
market conditions.

    Although the Company has no immediate plans to issue any securities, it
is the Company's policy to maintain an effective shelf registration statement
to ensure financing flexibility should the need arise.

    This press release is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation to
buy any securities of the company.

    Certain of the statements in the immediately preceding paragraphs,
particularly anticipating future performance, business prospects, growth and
operating strategies and similar matters and those that include the words
"could," "should," "believes," "anticipates," "expects," and "estimates," or
similar expressions constitute "forward-looking statements." For those
statements, Mohawk claims the protection of the safe harbor for
forward-looking statements contained in the Private Securities Litigation
Reform Act of 1995. There can be no assurance that the forward-looking
statements will be accurate because they are based on many assumptions, which
involve risks and uncertainties. The following important factors could cause
future results to differ: changes in economic or industry conditions;
competition; raw material and energy costs and supply; timing and level of
capital expenditures; integration of acquisitions; impairment charges;
rationalization of operations; litigation and other risks identified in
Mohawk's SEC reports and public announcements.
