Mohawk Helps Retailers Grow Commercial Business Through Trade Credit Partnership

DALTON, Ga. — August 31, 2011 — Mohawk retailers now have an opportunity to increase cash flow,
reduce time-consuming paperwork, and build store loyalty when selling flooring to commercial
contractors and builders. Mohawk has formed a partnership with BlueTarp Financial, Inc. (BlueTarp),
a credit provider specializing in business-to-business credit management services for the building
materials industry.

“We are very excited to extend BlueTarp’s services to our valued retailer partners,” said
Susan Hahn, Director, New Business Development at Mohawk Flooring. “It’s a win-win for everyone
involved. Mohawk retailers can focus on what’s most important-meeting the needs of customers and
growing their business-and commercial contractors and builders have flexible payment terms and
credit lines tailored to their needs.”

BlueTarp is a provider of enhanced financial services exclusively serving the building
materials and supply industry. The company handles every aspect of a retailer’s trade credit
program, including extending credit, invoicing, online payment, and collections. Currently,
BlueTarp serves more than 2,500 retailers and 50,000 contractors nationwide, and has a reputation
for delivering exceptional customer service.

“We are delighted to partner with Mohawk and help enhance the trade credit experience for
Mohawk retailers and their customers,” said Lou Collins, Chief Executive Officer of BlueTarp
Financial. “By utilizing BlueTarp’s services, retailers will be able to increase their monthly cash
flow while offering more credit to contractors, and contractors will see their purchasing power
increase as a direct result.”

Hahn says converting existing customers over to the BlueTarp program takes less than six
weeks and BlueTarp oversees the entire process. To encourage retailers to take advantage of this
trade credit opportunity, BlueTarp is offering Mohawk’s retailers a discounted enrollment fee that
can result in savings of more than $1,000.
