Financial report summary

  • The proposed merger (the “Merger”) of the Company with Herman Miller, Inc. is subject to certain closing conditions that, if not satisfied or waived, will result in the Merger not being completed, which may cause the market price of the Company’s common stock to decline.
  • Whether or not the proposed Merger is completed, the announcement and pendency of the Merger could cause disruptions in the businesses of the Company and Herman Miller, which could have an adverse effect on our (and Herman Miller’s) business and financial results.
  • Herman Miller and the Company have agreed in the Merger Agreement to take certain actions to address certain potential antitrust issues, including potential sales, divestments, transfers or other transactions affecting Herman Miller’s business.
  • Herman Miller’s failure to integrate the Company successfully and on a timely basis into Herman Miller’s operations could adversely impact Herman Miller’s business and financial results.
  • The results of Herman Miller’s operations after the Merger may be affected by factors different from, or in addition to, those currently affecting the Company’s results of operations, and the market value of Herman Miller’s common stock may decrease after the closing date of the Merger.
Management Discussion
  • Management’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations provides an account of our financial performance and financial condition that should be read in conjunction with the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.
  • This quarterly report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements, principally in the sections entitled “Business,” “Risk Factors,” “Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” and “Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.” Statements and financial discussion and analysis contained in this Form 10-Q that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements. These statements discuss goals, intentions and expectations as to future financial position, results of operations, revenue and profit levels, cash flows, business strategy, budgets, projected costs, capital expenditures, products, competitive positions, growth opportunities, plans and objectives of management for future operations, as well as statements that include words such as "anticipate," "if," "believe," "plan,", "goals," "estimate," "expect," "forecast," "intend," "may," "could," "should," "will," and other similar expressions are forward-looking statements. This includes, without limitation, our statements and expectations regarding any current or future recovery in our industry, our plans for reduced capital and operating expenditures and enhanced liquidity measures, our integration of acquired businesses, our supply chain and manufacturing footprint optimization plans, our expectations with respect to changes in the way companies implement "return to work", "work from home" and remote work strategies, and our expectations with respect to the payment of future dividends and leverage. Such forward-looking statements are inherently uncertain, and readers must recognize that actual results may differ materially from the expectations of management. Except as required under the Federal securities laws and the rules and regulations of the SEC, we do not undertake a duty to update such forward-looking statements. Factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include corporate spending and service-sector employment, price competition, acceptance of our new products, the pricing and availability of raw materials and components, foreign currency exchange, transportation costs, demand for high quality, well designed furniture and interior solutions, changes in the competitive marketplace, changes in the trends in the market for furniture or coverings, and the way and places where people work, the financial strength and stability of our suppliers, customers and dealers, access to capital, our success in designing and implementing our new enterprise resource planning system, our ability to successfully integrate acquired businesses, our supply chain optimization initiatives, the uncertainty and ultimate economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and other risks identified in our annual report on Form 10-K, and other filings with the SEC. Many of these factors are outside of our control.
