(FOX BUSINESS) – Lowe’s (LOW) on Thursday said it would pay a one-time bonus of $1,000 for more than 260,000 hourly U.S. employees as the home improvement chain takes advantage of changes in the U.S. tax code.
The company said it would also give new benefits, including additional paid maternity and parental leave and an adoption assistance benefit of up to $5,000 to qualified hourly full-time employees.
Lowe’s expects an additional net tax expense of about $75 million in the fourth quarter of 2017.
The charges and the one-time bonus, which is being paid to store, distribution center and customer and contact support centers, will hit its fourth quarter earnings per share by about 14 cents, Lowe’s said.
