Whirlpool says there will be ‘very limited’ impact from Sears bankruptcy
Whirlpool Corp. said Monday morning that the Sears Holdings Corp. bankruptcy “will have a very limited impact” on the appliance maker’s results. Whirlpool said that about $30 million, or 1%, of its aggregate accounts receivable exposure was with Sears as of Sept. 30. And Sears sales represents less than 2% of global net sales. The company does not anticipate any impact to full-year 2018 earnings per share. Whirlpool stock is up 2% in Monday trading, but down 37.2% for the year to date. The S&P 500 index is up 3.3% for 2018 so far.
