Item 2.02     Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On March 2, 2021, Interface, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release reporting its financial results for the fourth quarter of 2020 (the “Earnings Release”). A copy of the Earnings Release is included as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and hereby incorporated by reference. The information set forth in this Item 2.02, including the exhibit hereto, shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures in the Earnings Release

The Earnings Release includes, as additional information for investors, the Company’s adjusted earnings per share, adjusted net income, adjusted operating income, adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross profit margin, adjusted selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses, organic sales and organic sales growth, net debt, and adjusted earnings before interest taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”). These measures are not in accordance with financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) and may be different from similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be used as a substitute for, or considered superior to, GAAP financial measures.

Adjusted EPS, adjusted net income, and adjusted operating income exclude nora purchase accounting amortization, goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges, changes in equity award forfeiture accounting, restructuring charges, asset impairment, severance and other charges and an SEC settlement fine. Adjusted EPS and adjusted net income also exclude the loss associated with a warehouse fire, loss on extinguishment of debt, loss on the discontinuance of interest rate swaps, and tax expenses / benefits associated with previously discontinued operations. Adjusted gross profit excludes nora purchase accounting amortization. Adjusted SG&A expenses excludes changes in equity award forfeiture accounting, severance, asset impairment and other charges and an SEC settlement fine.

Organic sales and organic sales growth exclude the impact of foreign currency fluctuations. Net debt is total debt less cash on hand. Adjusted EBITDA is GAAP net income excluding interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, stock compensation amortization, goodwill and intangible asset impairment, restructuring charges, asset impairment, severance and other charges, nora purchase accounting amortization, an SEC settlement fine and the loss associated with a warehouse fire.

Because the Company engages in acquisitions only episodically, and not as an everyday matter, the Company believes presenting certain measures excluding the effects of acquisitions facilitates focus on normal ongoing operations. The Company also believes presenting sales information absent the effect of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations facilitates comparison of the Company’s operational performance between periods.

The Company generally believes reporting its adjusted results helps investors’ understanding of historical operating trends, because it facilitates comparison of current and prior periods during which one or more unique events may have occurred. The Company also believes that adjusted results provide supplemental information for comparisons to other companies which may not have experienced the same events underlying the adjustments. Furthermore, the Company uses adjusted results internally as supplemental information to evaluate its own performance, for planning purposes and in connection with its compensation programs.
