Item 8.01 0ther Events.


On May 24, 2016, the Company was informed by the staff of the Federal Trade Commission (the “Commission”) that it completed a non-public investigation concerning the dissemination of claims by the Company regarding the R value and energy efficiency of its INSULTEX House Wrap products. The staff concluded that the Company did not have substantiation for such claims and would recommend that the Commission bring an enforcement action for violations of Section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act, 15 U.S.C.sec. 45. In an attempt to resolve the matter without litigation, the staff provided a draft complaint and settlement offer. There is no recommendation by the staff that the Commission seek monetary penalties or redress as a condition of settlement.


The Company is commencing discussions with the staff regarding a potential resolution of these matters. The possible range of outcomes include the filing by the Commission of a contested civil complaint, further discussions leading to a settlement including various forms of injunctive relief or the closure of these matters without action










Pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
