Ethan Allen Interiors Inc.: Ethan Allen Announces Intent to Raise up to $250 Million of Debt Financing

DANBURY, CT (September 2, 2015) -- Ethan Allen Interiors Inc. ("Ethan Allen"
or the "Company") (NYSE:ETH) today announced its intent to raise up to $250
million of long-term debt financing.

Farooq Kathwari, Chairman and CEO commented, "Since last fall, the Company has
been in discussions with our bankers to enhance our capital structure. The
first objective was to put in place a new $115 million revolving credit
facility to replace the $50 million revolving facility that was scheduled to
expire in June 2015. This objective was accomplished in October 2014. The
next objective was to redeem the $129 million of outstanding senior notes due
October 2015, which was completed in March 2015. We also engaged J.P. Morgan
Securities LLC to explore alternatives to raise up to $250 million in
long-term debt financing. The funds will be utilized for our general
corporate needs and to further increase shareholder returns including a
special dividend and share repurchases. The Company expects to determine and
announce the specific application of the proceeds in the next several weeks."

The Company currently anticipates that the debt financing transaction will be
completed in the Company's fiscal second quarter; however, there can be no
assurances that the transaction will be completed, as it is subject to market
and other customary conditions.
