STEELCASE INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
1.
BASIS OF PRESENTATION
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions in Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals and adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation of the condensed consolidated financial statements have been included. Results for interim periods should not be considered indicative of results to be expected for a full year. Reference should be made to the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 24, 2012 (“Form 10-K”). The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of February 24, 2012 was derived from the audited Consolidated Balance Sheet included in our Form 10-K.
As used in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (“Report”), unless otherwise expressly stated or the context otherwise requires, all references to “Steelcase,” “we,” “our,” “Company” and similar references are to Steelcase Inc. and its subsidiaries in which a controlling interest is maintained. Unless the context otherwise indicates, reference to a year relates to the fiscal year, ended in February of the year indicated, rather than a calendar year. Additionally, Q1, Q2, Q3 and Q4 reference the first, second, third and fourth quarter, respectively, of the fiscal year indicated. All amounts are in millions, except share and per share data, data presented as a percentage or as otherwise indicated.
2.
NEW ACCOUNTING STANDARDS
In July 2012, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) amended Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 350, Intangibles — Goodwill and Other. This amendment is intended to reduce the cost and complexity of the annual impairment test for indefinite-lived intangible assets other than goodwill by providing entities an option to perform a qualitative assessment to determine whether further impairment testing is necessary. The amended provisions are effective for the company beginning in Q1 2014; however, early adoption is permitted. This amendment impacts impairment testing steps only, and therefore adoption will not have an impact on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
3.
CORRECTION OF PRIOR PERIOD FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
    
The company identified errors in its accounting for deferred income taxes which relate to periods prior to fiscal year 2010. Management believes the errors are not material to any prior period financial statements.  The correction of the errors had the effect of reducing long-term deferred income taxes and retained earnings by $12.5.  The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of February 24, 2012 presented in this Form 10-Q has been restated to reflect this correction. These errors were associated with periods prior to fiscal 2010 and therefore did not materially impact the condensed consolidated statements of income or cash flows for the periods presented in our most recently filed Form 10-K.
4.
EARNINGS PER SHARE
Earnings per share is computed using the two-class method. The two-class method determines earnings per share for each class of common stock and participating securities according to dividends or dividend equivalents and their respective participation rights in undistributed earnings. Participating securities include performance units and restricted stock units in which the participants have non-forfeitable rights to dividends or dividend equivalents during the performance period. Diluted earnings per share includes the effects of options and certain performance units in which the participants have forfeitable rights to dividends or dividend equivalents during the performance period.

FAIR VALUE
The carrying amounts for many of our financial instruments, including cash and cash equivalents, accounts and notes receivable, accounts and notes payable, short-term borrowings and certain other liabilities, approximate their fair value due to their relatively short maturities. Our short-term investments, foreign exchange forward contracts and long-term investments are measured at fair value on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
Our total debt is carried at cost and was $291.9 and $291.5 as of August 24, 2012 and February 24, 2012, respectively. The fair value of our total debt is measured using a discounted cash flow analysis based on current market interest rates for similar types of instruments and was approximately $310 and $305 as of August 24, 2012 and February 24, 2012, respectively.
We periodically use derivative financial instruments to manage exposures to movements in interest rates and foreign exchange rates. The use of these financial instruments modifies the exposure of these risks with the intention to reduce our risk of short-term volatility. We do not use derivatives for speculative or trading purposes.

STOCK INCENTIVE PLAN
Performance Units
In Q1 2013, we awarded 540,470 performance units to our executive officers. These performance units are earned after a three-year performance period, from 2013 through 2015, based on our total shareholder return relative to a comparison group of companies and, if earned, will be issued in the form of shares of Class A Common Stock. The number of shares that may be earned can range from 0% to 200% of the target amount, therefore the maximum number of shares that can be issued under the awards is 1,080,940. For these awards, dividend equivalents are calculated based on the actual number of shares earned at the end of the performance period equal to the dividends that would have been payable on the earned shares had they been held during the entire performance period as Class A Common Stock. At the end of the performance period, the dividend equivalents are paid in the form of cash or Class A Common Stock at the discretion of the Board of Directors. These awards will be forfeited if the participant leaves our company for reasons other than retirement, disability or death or if the participant engages in any competition with us, as defined in the plan and determined by the Administrative Committee in its discretion. If a change in control occurs at least six months following the award date, the target awards will be deemed to be earned and a pro rata number of units will be vested and paid based upon the length of time within the performance period which has elapsed prior to the effective date of the change in control.

Total nonvested includes 194,750 units as of February 24, 2012 and 169,750 units as of August 24, 2012 which represent the 25.0% portion of the awards granted in 2011 which are not subject to performance conditions. The reduction is due to the forfeiture of units during 2013.
As of August 24, 2012, there is $4.2 of remaining unrecognized compensation cost related to nonvested performance units. That cost is expected to be recognized over a remaining weighted-average period of 1.9 years.
Restricted Stock Units
For the six months ended August 24, 2012, we awarded 253,922 restricted stock units ("RSUs"), of which 230,030 were awarded to our executive officers. These restricted stock units have restrictions on transfer, the majority of which lapse three years after the date of grant, at which time the units will be issued as unrestricted shares of Class A Common Stock. These awards are subject to forfeiture if a participant leaves our company for reasons other than retirement, disability, death or termination by us without cause prior to the vesting date.

DIVESTITURES AND ACQUISITIONS

Dealer Acquisition

In Q1 2012, Red Thread Spaces LLC ("Red Thread"), formerly known as Office Environments of New England, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Steelcase Inc., acquired substantially all of the assets of bkm Total Office (“BKM”) for cash consideration of approximately $18.7. Red Thread and BKM, both authorized Steelcase dealers, have combined to create a regional enterprise supporting workplace needs that will offer a broadened portfolio of products and services and expanded geographical coverage in New England. We completed the final purchase price allocation in Q3 2012 which resulted in goodwill and intangible assets valuations of $2.0 and $0.3, respectively. The combined dealers are included in the Americas segment. The purchase of BKM did not have a material impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements.
Divestiture of PolyVision Division
In Q2 2012, we completed the sale of PolyVision’s remaining low margin whiteboard fabrication business in Europe to a third party for proceeds totaling $2.3. The transaction included the sale of PolyVision SAS (France) and PolyVision A/S (Denmark) and resulted in a loss of $0.9 recorded in Restructuring costs on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income.
For the year ended February 24, 2012 and the interim periods therein, our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income included the following related to PolyVision SAS and PolyVision A/S:

RESTRUCTURING ACTIVITIES
In Q2 2013, we announced plans to integrate PolyVision's global technology business into the Steelcase Education Solutions group. We currently estimate the cash restructuring costs associated with this action will be approximately $5, with approximately $2 related to workforce reductions and $3 of other integration costs. We expect to incur the majority of these costs over the next three fiscal quarters.
In Q4 2011, we announced the planned closure of three manufacturing facilities in North America as part of our ongoing efforts to improve the fitness of our business and strengthen the Company’s long-term competitiveness. We are in the process of moving production within these facilities to other Steelcase locations in North America and expect the manufacturing consolidation will be substantially complete by the end of 2013. We currently estimate the cash restructuring costs associated with these actions will be approximately $40, with approximately $30 related to workforce reductions and approximately $10 related to costs associated with manufacturing consolidation and production moves. We incurred $1.5 and $2.8 of employee termination costs during the three and six months ended August 24, 2012, respectively. We incurred $2.0 and $5.2 of business exit and other related costs during the three and six months ended August 24, 2012, respectively. During 2012 and 2011, we incurred restructuring costs related to these plant closures of $17.9 and $10.1, respectively. These costs

Item 2.
Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations:
This management’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 24, 2012. Reference to a year relates to the fiscal year, ended in February of the year indicated, rather than the calendar year, unless indicated by a specific date. Additionally, Q1, Q2, Q3 and Q4 reference the first, second, third and fourth quarter, respectively, of the fiscal year indicated. All amounts are in millions, except share and per share data, data presented as a percentage or as otherwise indicated.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This item contains certain non-GAAP financial measures. A “non-GAAP financial measure” is defined as a numerical measure of a company’s financial performance that excludes or includes amounts so as to be different than the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the consolidated statements of income, balance sheets or statements of cash flows of the company. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, we have provided a reconciliation below of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
The non-GAAP financial measures used are:  (1) organic revenue growth (decline), which represents the change in revenue excluding estimated currency translation effects and the impacts of acquisitions and divestitures, and (2) adjusted operating income (loss), which represents operating income (loss) excluding restructuring costs. These measures are presented because management uses this information to monitor and evaluate financial results and trends. Therefore, management believes this information is also useful for investors.

Overview
In Q2 2013, we experienced 10% organic revenue growth compared to the prior year, which represents the tenth consecutive quarter of year-over-year organic revenue growth. This growth is generally consistent with or better than global trends in our industry, driven in significant part by increased large project business. Companies have been increasing corporate spending thus far in the economic recovery, leveraging the strength of their cash positions. In recent months, white collar employment and new construction (traditional industry drivers) have started to modestly improve in the Americas, but the broader economic recovery remains challenged by a variety of headwinds, particularly in Europe and more recently in Asia.
Additionally, we believe many of our customers have deferred spending during a decade in which various forces have dramatically impacted their work environments, and many are at the point where they are now investing to modernize their spaces. We have been conducting research and launching new products, applications and experiences over the past several years to address these forces, some of which include globalization trends, miniaturization of technology, mobility of workers, increased collaboration and multi-generations at work. We believe staying invested in these growth initiatives during the worst of the recession helped drive our strong revenue growth as our customers increased spending. During the second half of 2012 and into 2013, we increased investments in product development and other initiatives. We believe these investments will strengthen our market leadership and help to sustain the momentum we have in our business.

Q2 2013 Compared to Q2 2012
We recorded Q2 2013 net income of $29.5 compared to Q2 2012 net income of $11.9. The increase in net income was driven by improved operating results in the Americas and EMEA, lower restructuring costs, higher variable life company owned life insurance (“COLI”) income and lower interest expense. These increases were partially offset by lower operating results in the Other category.
Revenue for Q2 2013 was $744.9 compared to $700.5 in Q2 2012. Organic revenue growth was 10% after adjusting for unfavorable currency translation effects and the net impacts of acquisitions and divestitures. We realized organic revenue growth of 10% in the Americas and 17% in EMEA, while the Other category experienced a 3% decline.
Operating income of $46.8 in Q2 2013 compared to operating income of $25.4 in the prior year. Q2 2013 adjusted operating income of $50.5 increased by $12.8 compared to Q2 2012 adjusted operating income of $37.7. The improvement was driven largely by organic revenue growth in the Americas and EMEA, but gross margins were negatively impacted by a higher mix of lower-margin project business from some of the company's largest corporate customers.
Cost of sales decreased to 68.9% of revenue in Q2 2013, an 80 basis point improvement compared to Q2 2012. Higher absorption of fixed costs associated with the organic revenue growth in the quarter, as well as year-over-year benefits from recent pricing adjustments (net of commodity cost changes) and restructuring actions (net of related disruption costs), were partially offset by the increase in lower-margin project business.
Operating expenses in Q2 2013 of $181.0 increased by $6.1 compared to Q2 2012 operating expenses of $174.9. The comparison included $4.7 of favorable currency translation effects and $5.7 of higher variable compensation (including expenses associated with our EVA-based bonus programs and the Steelcase Inc. Retirement Plan) and increased earnings related to deferred compensation. The remaining increase of $5.1 over the prior year primarily related to increased spending on sales, product development and other initiatives in the Americas and Asia Pacific.
We recorded restructuring costs of $3.7 in Q2 2013, $3.5 of which was associated with the North America plant closures announced in Q4 2011. In Q2 2012, we recorded $4.9 associated with these same North America plant closures, as well as $5.9 related to our Morocco plant closure and $1.1 associated with the divestiture of a small division of PolyVision.
Our Q2 2013 effective tax rate was 35% which compared to 22% in Q2 2012. Q2 2012 income tax expense included a net benefit of $2.0 for miscellaneous discrete tax items, the majority of which related to the divestiture of a small division at PolyVision.
Year-to-Date 2013 Compared to Year-to-Date 2012
We recorded year-to-date 2013 net income of $42.7 compared to year-to-date 2012 net income of $19.4. Year-to-date 2013 results were affected by the same factors as our Q2 2013 results.
Year-to-date 2013 revenue increased $80.2 or 6.0% compared to year-to-date 2012, representing organic revenue growth of 8% after adjusting for unfavorable currency translation effects and the net impacts of acquisitions and divestitures. We realized organic revenue growth of 12% in the Americas and 1% in EMEA, while the Other category experienced a 1% decline.
Year-to-date 2013 operating income grew to $66.1 compared to $40.4 in the prior year. Year-to-date 2013 adjusted operating income improved to $74.9 from $62.6 in the prior year. This improvement was driven largely by the organic revenue growth in the Americas but gross margins were negatively impacted by a higher mix of lower-margin project business from some of the company's largest corporate customers.
Year-to-date 2013 cost of sales was 69.5%, a 20 basis point improvement compared to year-to-date 2012. The improvement in cost of sales was due to the same factors as our Q2 2013 results.
Year-to-date 2013 operating expenses of $357.7 increased $14.6 compared to the same period last year but decreased as a percentage of sales to 25.2% from 25.6%. The comparison included $7.5 of favorable currency translation effects and $1.3 related to net acquisitions and divestitures. Additionally, operating expenses included a net increase of $4.2 related to our stock, deferred and variable compensation plans (including expenses associated with our EVA-based bonus programs and the Steelcase Inc. Retirement Plan). The remaining increase of $16.6 over the prior year primarily related to increased spending on sales, product development and other initiatives in the Americas and Asia Pacific.

15


We recorded year-to-date 2013 restructuring costs of $8.8 compared to $22.2 for year-to-date 2012. The year-to-date 2013 amount included $8.0 associated with the North America plant closures announced in Q4 2011. The year-to-date 2012 amount included $12.1 associated with these same North America plant closures, as well as $5.9 related to the Morocco plant closure and $1.1 associated with the divestiture of a small division at PolyVision.
Our year-to-date 2013 effective tax rate was 34%, slightly lower than our estimated annual effective tax rate of 35%, due to $0.4 of net discrete tax items. Our year-to-date 2012 effective tax rate was 27%, due to a net benefit of $2.0 for miscellaneous discrete tax items, the majority of which related to the divestiture of a small division at PolyVision.

The decrease in interest expense resulted from the additional $3.6 and $7.7 incurred in Q2 2012 and year-to-date 2012, respectively, associated with $250 of senior notes which matured and were repaid in Q2 2012. The Q2 2013 and year-to-date 2013 change in investment income (loss) was primarily driven by higher variable life COLI income during the current periods. The increase in other income, net was primarily due to a $2.1 gain recognized on the sale of a small equity investment in Q1 2013.

Operating income in the Americas of $60.7 in Q2 2013 increased by $17.9 compared to Q2 2012 operating income of $42.8. Adjusted operating income increased by $16.2 in Q2 2013 compared to Q2 2012. The improvement was driven largely by organic revenue growth, as well as year-over-year benefits from improved pricing (net of commodity cost changes) and restructuring actions (net of disruption related costs), offset in part by a higher mix of lower-margin project business and increased spending on sales, product development and other initiatives. The $30.2 improvement in year-to-date 2013 adjusted operating income was due to similar factors impacting our Q2 2013 results.
The Americas revenue represented 71.4% of consolidated revenue in Q2 2013. Revenue for Q2 2013 was $531.9 compared to $485.7 in Q2 2012, an increase of $46.2 or 9.5%. After adjusting for revenue from a dealer acquired in Q1 2012 and currency translation impacts, organic revenue growth was $47.4 or 10%. Based on the most recent information available from the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association, we believe we are continuing to gain market share in the U.S. The organic revenue growth in the Americas benefited from a strong beginning backlog and current quarter orders which grew 8% compared to the prior year. Revenue growth in Q2 2013 is categorized as follows:
Product categories — All product categories experienced growth in Q2, with notable strength in Furniture, Coalesse, Details, Architectural Solutions and Technology.
Vertical markets — Notable strength in vertical markets was experienced in the Energy, State and Local Government, Information Technology and Manufacturing sectors, while notable weakness continued in the Financial Services and Federal Government sectors.
Geographic regions — Growth rates were the strongest in the Western Region of North America and across Latin America. 
Contract type — All quote types reported revenue growth, but project business was the strongest.
Year-to-date 2013 organic revenue growth was $103.6 or 12%.
Cost of sales decreased to 68.2% of revenue in Q2 2013 compared to 69.4% of revenue in Q2 2012. Higher absorption of fixed costs associated with the organic revenue growth (including benefits of improved pricing) were partially offset by a higher mix of project business weighted more heavily towards some of our largest corporate customers (which was somewhat offset by a lower mix of federal government business in the U.S.). Year-to-date 2013 cost of sales improved by 100 basis points and was affected by the same factors as Q2 2013 results.
Operating expenses increased by $4.3 in Q2 2013 compared to the same period last year. The increase related to higher spending on sales, product development and other initiatives and $2.1 of higher variable compensation expense. Year-to-date 2013 operating expenses increased by $13.7. The increase included $1.7 of expenses related to a dealer acquired in Q1 2012 and $3.6 of increased variable compensation. The remaining increase related to higher spending on sales, product development and other initiatives.
Restructuring costs of $3.5 in Q2 2013 and $8.2 in year-to-date 2013 primarily related to the consolidation of manufacturing facilities announced in Q4 2011.

The operating loss in EMEA of $3.4 in Q2 2013 represents an improvement of $10.4 compared to the Q2 2012 operating loss of $13.8. The adjusted operating loss recorded in Q2 2013 was $3.4 compared to an adjusted operating loss of $7.9 in the same period of the prior year. The improvement was driven largely by organic revenue growth, but gross margins were negatively impacted by a higher mix of lower-margin project business. The year-to-date 2013 operating loss of $11.4 was an improvement of $2.5 over the year-to-date 2012 operating loss of $13.9. However, the year-to-date 2013 adjusted operating loss of $11.0 represented a decline of $5.7 compared to the year-to-date 2012 operating loss of $5.3. The decline, which occurred in Q1 2013, was driven by a higher mix of lower-margin project business.
EMEA revenue represented 18.6% of consolidated revenue in Q2 2013. Revenue for Q2 2013 was $138.6 compared to $133.8 in Q2 2012. After adjusting for unfavorable currency translation effects of $15.8 and the impact of dealer acquisitions, organic revenue growth was $19.6 or 17%. All regions experienced organic revenue growth with the most significant growth occurring in France and Northern Europe, both of which were driven by project business. The growth in Q2 2013 was partially driven by a strong beginning backlog. Year-to-date 2013 organic revenue growth was $3.4 or 1%. The growth in Q2 2013 was offset by lower day-to-day business in Q1 2013, primarily in Spain and Germany.
Cost of sales climbed to 73.3% of revenue in Q2 2013 from 72.8% of revenue in Q2 2012, a 50 basis point erosion. Year-to-date 2013 cost of sales eroded 210 basis points to 73.8%. The erosion was primarily driven by a higher mix of lower-margin project business.
Q2 2013 operating expenses decreased by $3.9 and year-to-date 2013 decreased by $6.0 compared to the prior year. These decreases were primarily due to favorable currency translation effects.
Restructuring costs of $5.9 incurred in Q2 2012 relate to the closure of our Morocco manufacturing facility. These costs primarily relate to employee termination costs.
