Financial report summary

  • Our product sales are tied to corporate spending and service-sector employment, which are outside of our control. Our sales and/or growth in sales would be adversely affected by a recessionary economy characterized by decreased corporate spending and service-sector employment.
  • Weakness in the economy or uncertainty in the financial markets may adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition, as well as the financial soundness of our customers and suppliers.
  • We may have difficulty increasing or maintaining our prices as a result of price competition, which could lower our profit margins. Our competitors may develop new product designs that give them an advantage over us in making future sales.
  • Our efforts to introduce new products that meet customer and workplace requirements may not be successful, which could limit our sales growth or cause our sales to decline.
  • We may not be able to manage our business effectively if we are unable to retain our experienced management team or recruit other key personnel.
  • We are dependent on the pricing and availability of raw materials and components, and price increases and unavailability of raw materials and components could lower sales, increase our cost of goods sold and reduce our profits and margins.
  • We are affected by the cost of energy and increases in energy prices could reduce our margins and profits.
  • We rely upon independent furniture dealers, and a loss of a significant number of dealers could affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.
  • Currently, one of our largest clients is the U.S. government, a relationship that is subject to uncertain future funding levels and federal procurement laws and requires restrictive contract terms; any of these factors could curtail current or future business.
  • Our global operations may be adversely affected by political events, domestic or international hostilities, international health emergencies, or complications due to natural, nuclear or other disasters.
  • Our efforts to diversify our sources of revenue may not be effective and may expose us to new risks.
  • We operate with leverage, and a significant amount of cash will be required to service our indebtedness. Restrictions imposed by the terms of our indebtedness may limit our operating and financial flexibility.
  • We may require additional capital in the future, which may not be available or may be available only on unfavorable terms.
  • An inability to protect our intellectual property could have a significant impact on our business.
  • If third parties claim that we infringe upon their intellectual property rights, we may incur liabilities and costs and may have to redesign or discontinue an infringing product.
  • We could be required to incur substantial costs to comply with environmental requirements. Violations of, and liabilities under, environmental laws and regulations may increase our costs or require us to change our business practices.
  • We are subject to potential labor disruptions, which could have a significant impact on our business.
  • Product defects could adversely affect our results of operations.
  • We may be vulnerable to the effects of currency exchange rate fluctuations, which could increase our expenses.
  • Pension costs or funding requirements could increase at a higher-than-anticipated rate.
  • If we fail to protect the integrity and security of our information technology systems and confidential information, it could adversely affect our business.
  • We are in the process of implementing a new enterprise resource planning system, and problems with the design or implementation of this system could interfere with our business and operations.
  • We may not be able to successfully integrate acquired businesses, which may result in an inability to realize the anticipated benefits of our acquisitions.
  • Tax matters, including the changes in corporate tax rates, disagreements with taxing authorities and imposing of new taxes could impact our results of operations and financial condition.
  • Any attempt by the Administration to withdraw from or materially modify international trade agreements could adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.
  • The implementation of tariffs and export controls on our products may have a material impact on our business.
  • Our corporate documents and Delaware law contain provisions that could discourage, delay or prevent a change in control of our company.
  • Our stock price may be volatile, and your investment in our common stock could suffer a decline in value.
  • Our corporate documents provide, subject to certain exceptions, that the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware is the exclusive forum for substantially all disputes between us and our stockholders, which could limit our stockholders’ ability to obtain a favorable judicial forum for disputes with us or our directors, officers or employees.
Management Discussion
  • Net sales for the three months ended March 31, 2020 were $340.0 million, an increase of $7.2 million, or 2.2%, from sales of $332.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019. Net sales for the Office segment were $216.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, an increase of 7.0%, when compared to the three months ended March 31, 2019. The increase in the Office segment was a driven primarily by the inclusion of Fully’s work-from-home e-commerce offering. Net sales for the Lifestyle segment were $123.6 million during the three months ended March 31, 2020, a decrease of 5.3%, from the three months ended March 31, 2019. Lifestyle segment sales were down primarily due to challenging year-over-year comparisons in our KnollStudio workplace sales, and residential weakness at HOLLY HUNT and Knoll Europe where we had to close design center showrooms, partially offset by continued double-digit growth at Muuto.
