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 25, 2022 (“Form 10-K”). The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of February 25, 2022 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.

4.EARNINGS (LOSS) PER SHARE
Earnings (loss) per share is computed using the two-class method. The two-class method determines earnings (loss) 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 represent restricted stock units in which the participants have non-forfeitable rights to dividend equivalents during the performance period. Diluted earnings (loss) per share includes the effects of certain performance units in which the participants have forfeitable rights to dividend equivalents during the performance period.

6.FAIR VALUE
The carrying amounts for many of our financial instruments, including cash and cash equivalents, accounts and notes receivable, accounts payable, short-term borrowings and certain other liabilities, approximate their fair value due to their relatively short maturities. Our 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 $482.4 and $482.5 as of May 27, 2022 and February 25, 2022, 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 $451.0 and $516.7 as of May 27, 2022 and February 25, 2022, respectively. The estimation of the fair value of our total debt is based on Level 2 fair value measurements.
We periodically use derivative financial instruments to manage exposures to movements in foreign exchange rates and interest 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.
Assets and liabilities measured at fair value as of May 27, 2022 and February 25, 2022 are summarized below:
  May 27, 2022

8.     SHARE-BASED COMPENSATION
Performance Units
We have issued performance units (“PSUs”) to certain employees which are earned over a three-year performance period based on performance conditions established annually by the Compensation Committee within the first three months of the applicable fiscal year. The PSUs are then modified based on achievement of certain total shareholder return results relative to a comparison group of companies, which is a market condition. When the performance conditions for a fiscal year are established, or if the performance conditions involve a qualitative assessment and such assessment has been made, one-third of the PSUs issued are considered granted. Therefore, each of the three fiscal years within the performance period is considered an individual tranche of the award (referred to as "Tranche 1," "Tranche 2" and "Tranche 3," respectively).
As of May 27, 2022, the following PSUs have been issued and remained outstanding:
428,700 PSUs to be earned over the period of 2023 through 2025 (the "2023 PSUs"),
448,300 PSUs to be earned over the period of 2022 through 2024 (the "2022 PSUs") and
529,500 PSUs to be earned over the period of 2021 through 2023 (the "2021 PSUs").
Once granted, the PSUs are expensed and recorded in Additional paid-in capital on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets over the remaining performance period. For participants who are or become retirement-eligible during the performance period, the PSUs are expensed over the period ending on the date the participant becomes retirement-eligible.
As of May 27, 2022, the 2023 PSUs, 2022 PSUs and 2021 PSUs were considered granted as follows:
In Q1 2023, the performance conditions were established for Tranche 1 of the 2023 PSUs, Tranche 2 of the 2022 PSUs and Tranche 3 of the 2021 PSUs, and accordingly, such tranches were considered granted in Q1 2023.
In Q1 2022, the performance conditions were established for Tranche 1 of the 2022 PSUs and Tranche 2 of the 2021 PSUs, and accordingly, such tranches were considered granted in Q1 2022.
In Q1 2021, the performance conditions were established for Tranche 1 of the 2021 PSUs, and accordingly, such tranche was considered granted in Q1 2021.

STEELCASE INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS — (Continued)
We used the Monte Carlo simulation model to calculate the fair value of the market conditions on the respective grant dates, which resulted in a total fair value of $5.2, $4.8 and $2.3 for the PSUs with market conditions granted in 2023, 2022 and 2021, respectively, that remain outstanding as of May 27, 2022. The Monte Carlo simulation was computed using the following assumptions:

As of May 27, 2022, there was $1.5 of remaining unrecognized compensation cost related to nonvested PSUs, which is expected to be recognized over a remaining weighted-average period of 2.2 years.
Restricted Stock Units
During the three months ended May 27, 2022, we awarded 1,008,424 restricted stock units ("RSUs") to certain employees. RSUs have restrictions on transfer which lapse one to three years after the date of grant, at which time the RSUs will be issued as unrestricted shares of Class A Common Stock. RSUs are expensed and recorded in Additional paid-in capital on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets over the requisite service period based on the value of the shares on the grant date. For participants who are or become retirement-eligible during the service period for awards that are considered retirement-eligible, the RSUs are expensed over the period ending on the date that the participant becomes retirement-eligible.
The total RSU expense and associated tax benefit for the three months ended May 27, 2022 and May 28, 2021 are as follows:

9.     LEASES
We have operating leases for corporate offices, sales offices, showrooms, manufacturing and distribution facilities, vehicles and equipment that expire at various dates through 2035. Certain lease agreements include contingent rental payments based on per unit usage over contractual levels (e.g., miles driven or machine hours used) and others include rental payments adjusted periodically for inflationary indexes. Additionally, some leases include options to renew or terminate the leases which can be exercised at our discretion.

10.ACQUISITIONS
Viccarbe
In Q3 2022, we acquired Viccarbe, a Spanish designer of contemporary furniture for high-performance collaborative and social spaces. The transaction included the purchase of all the outstanding capital stock of Viccarbe for $34.9 (or €30.0) in an all-cash transaction using cash on-hand. Up to an additional $15.1 (or €13.0) is payable to the sellers based upon the achievement of certain sales and operating income targets over a three-year period. This amount was determined to be contingent consideration and was treated for accounting purposes as part of the total purchase price of the acquisition. We used the Monte Carlo simulation model to calculate the fair value of the contingent consideration as of the acquisition date, which represents a Level 3 measurement. As a result, we recorded a related liability of $4.9 (or €4.2). An additional amount of $7.0 (or €6.0) is also payable to the sellers based upon the achievement of certain milestones and continued employment over a five-year period, which will be expensed over the service period on a straight-line basis.
Tangible assets and liabilities of Viccarbe were valued as of the acquisition date using a market analysis and intangible assets were valued using a discounted cash flow analysis, which represents a Level 3 measurement. On the acquisition date, we recorded $11.7 related to identifiable intangible assets, $25.8 related to goodwill and $5.1 related to tangible assets. The tangible assets mainly consisted of working capital (primarily accounts receivable, inventory and accounts payable) and property, plant and equipment. Additionally, we recorded a deferred tax liability in the amount of $2.9 associated with the tax basis difference in acquired book assets. The goodwill was recorded in the EMEA segment and is not deductible for income tax purposes in Spain. The goodwill resulting from the acquisition is primarily related to the growth potential of Viccarbe and our intention to expand the manufacturing of Viccarbe products in geographic regions outside of EMEA and to offer Viccarbe products through our global distribution network. Intangible assets are principally related to the Viccarbe trade name, dealer relationships and internally developed know-how and designs, which will be amortized over periods ranging from 9 to 13 years from the date of acquisition. The purchase price allocation for the acquisition was incomplete as of May 27, 2022. We are still evaluating certain deferred tax balances and working capital adjustments. The amounts recognized related to the purchase price allocation will be finalized no later than one year after the acquisition date.
The following table summarizes the purchased identified intangible assets and the respective fair value and useful life of each asset at the date of acquisition:

12.     RESTRUCTURING ACTIVITIES
In Q4 2022, our Board of Directors approved restructuring actions related to the exit of our technology business in connection with our strategy to shift from offering a portfolio of technology products toward partnering with technology companies to create integrated collaborative solutions. The restructuring actions include involuntary terminations of the majority of salaried employees of the business and the termination of supplier and customer contracts related to the business. We expect to incur approximately $5 in restructuring costs in the Americas segment related to these actions, consisting of cash severance payments and payment of other business exit costs. We recorded $1.8 related to employee termination costs and $2.4 related to business exit and other related costs in Q1 2023 for actions initiated during the quarter. We expect all of the actions to be completed by the end of Q3 2023.

13.    SUBSEQUENT EVENTS
On June 10, 2022, we acquired Halcon Furniture LLC ("Halcon"), a Minnesota-based designer and manufacturer of precision-tailored wood furniture for the workplace. The transaction included the purchase of all the outstanding membership interests of Halcon for $127.5 plus an adjustment of $3.1 for working capital in an all-cash transaction. Up to an additional $9.5 is payable to the seller, contingent upon the achievement of certain performance targets and continued employment of the seller over a specified period. The acquisition was funded using a combination of cash on-hand and borrowings under our global committed bank facility.
To fund a portion of the acquisition of Halcon, on June 9, 2022, we borrowed $35.0 under our global committed bank facility subject to an effective interest rate of 2.75%, and on June 10, 2022, we borrowed an additional $33.0 under our global committed bank facility subject to an effective interest rate of 2.32%. We repaid a total of $18.2 related to these borrowings as of June 24, 2022.

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 ("MD&A") should be read in conjunction with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 25, 2022. 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.
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 condensed consolidated statements of operations, balance sheets or statements of cash flows of the company. The non-GAAP financial measures used are (1) organic revenue growth, (2) adjusted operating income (loss) and (3) adjusted earnings (loss) per share. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, we have provided a reconciliation of each of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure in the tables below. These measures are supplemental to, and should be used in conjunction with, the most comparable GAAP measures. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to monitor and evaluate financial results and trends. See Non-GAAP Financial Measures for a description of these measures and why management believes they are also useful to investors.
Financial Summary

Our reportable segments consist of the Americas segment, the EMEA segment and the Other category. Unallocated corporate expenses are reported as Corporate.

Overview

Revenue grew by 33% in Q1 2023 compared to the prior year, driven by strong beginning order backlog and pricing benefits, as well as broad-based order growth in the Americas and EMEA segments. Orders grew 22% compared to the prior year, and at the end of Q1 2023, our backlog of customer orders was approximately $927, which was 52% higher than the prior year.
We continue to experience significant inflation in steel, other commodities, fuel and logistics costs, which, net of pricing benefits, decreased our gross profit by approximately $12 in Q1 2023 compared to the prior year. In response to these continued inflationary pressures, we recently announced an additional global list price increase and a surcharge in the Americas.
We recorded a net loss of $11.4 and loss per share of $0.10 in Q1 2023 compared to a net loss of $28.1 and loss per share of $0.24 in the prior year. The operating loss of $12.6 in Q1 2023 represented an improvement of $19.2 compared to the operating loss of $31.8 in the prior year. The improvement was driven by higher volume, partially offset by higher cost of sales as a percentage of revenue. The current year included $4.2 of restructuring costs in the Americas related to the exit of our technology business. We reported an adjusted operating loss of $4.6 and an adjusted loss per share of $0.05 in Q1 2023, and we had an adjusted operating loss of $28.2 and an adjusted loss per share of $0.22 in the prior year.
Revenue of $740.7 in Q1 2023 represented an increase of $184.1 or 33% compared to the prior year, driven by growth across all segments. Approximately $145 of the increase was related to higher volume and approximately $45 was related to pricing benefits, partially offset by unfavorable currency translation effects primarily in EMEA. Revenue increased by 38% in the Americas, 27% in EMEA and 12% in the Other category. Organic revenue growth was $193.2 or 35% compared to the prior year, with 38% growth in the Americas, 36% growth in EMEA and 13% growth in the Other category.
19

Cost of sales as a percentage of revenue increased by 180 basis points in Q1 2023 compared to the prior year. The increase was driven by approximately $12 of higher inflation, net of pricing benefits, partially offset by the benefits of higher volume. Cost of sales as a percentage of revenue increased by 250 basis points in the Americas and 60 basis points in EMEA, while the Other category improved by 100 basis points.
Operating expenses increased by $14.4 in Q1 2023, but decreased by 640 basis points as a percentage of revenue, compared to the prior year. The current year included $11.6 of higher marketing, product development and sales expenses, $6.8 of higher spending in other functional areas, $4.8 of lower COLI income and $1.9 from an acquisition, partially offset by $4.1 of lower deferred compensation expense, a $4.0 gain from the sale of land and $3.6 of favorable currency translation effects.
We recorded restructuring costs of $4.2 in the Americas in Q1 2023 related to the exit of our technology business. See Note 12 to the condensed consolidated financial statements for additional information.
Our Q1 2023 effective tax rate was 27.8% compared to a Q1 2022 effective tax rate of 27.6%.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The non-GAAP financial measures used in this MD&A are: (1) organic revenue growth, (2) adjusted operating income (loss) and (3) adjusted earnings (loss) per share.
22

Organic Revenue Growth
We define organic revenue growth as revenue growth excluding the impact of acquisitions and divestitures and foreign currency translation effects. Organic revenue growth is calculated by adjusting prior year revenue to include revenues of acquired companies prior to the date of the company's acquisition, to exclude revenues of divested companies and to use current year average exchange rates in the calculation of foreign-denominated revenue. We believe organic revenue growth is a meaningful metric to investors as it provides a more consistent comparison of our revenue to prior periods as well as to industry peers.
Adjusted Operating Income (Loss) and Adjusted Earnings (Loss) Per Share
We define adjusted operating income (loss) as operating income (loss) excluding amortization of purchased intangible assets and restructuring costs. We define adjusted earnings (loss) per share as earnings (loss) per share excluding amortization of purchased intangible assets and restructuring costs, net of related income tax effects.
Amortization of purchased intangible assets: We may record intangible assets (such as backlog, dealer relationships, trademarks, know-how and designs and proprietary technology) when we acquire companies. We allocate the fair value of purchase consideration to net tangible and intangible assets acquired based on their estimated fair values. The fair value estimates for these intangible assets require management to make significant estimates and assumptions, which includes the useful lives of intangible assets. We believe that adjusting for amortization of purchased intangible assets provides a more consistent comparison of our operating performance to prior periods as well as to industry peers. As our business strategy in recent years has included an increased number of acquisitions, intangible asset amortization has become more significant. In Q1 2023, we elected to begin adjusting operating income (loss) and earnings (loss) per share for amortization of purchased intangible assets, as we completed the acquisition of Halcon Furniture LLC in early Q2 2023, which is expected to make our amortization of purchased intangible assets more significant.
Restructuring costs: Restructuring costs may be recorded as our business strategies change or in response to changing market trends and economic conditions. We believe that adjusting for restructuring costs, which are primarily associated with business exit and workforce reduction costs, provides a more consistent comparison of our operating performance to prior periods as well as to industry peers.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
Cash and cash equivalents are used to fund day-to-day operations, including seasonal disbursements, particularly the annual payment of accrued variable compensation and retirement plan contributions in Q1 of each fiscal year. During normal business conditions, we target a range of $75 to $175 in cash and cash equivalents to fund operating requirements. In addition, we may carry additional liquidity for potential investments in strategic initiatives and as a cushion against economic volatility, and from time to time, we may allow our cash and cash equivalents to temporarily fall below our targeted range to fund acquisitions and other growth initiatives.

As of May 27, 2022, we held a total of $116.7 in cash and cash equivalents. Of that total, 64% was located in the U.S. and the remaining 36% was located outside of the U.S., primarily in China (including Hong Kong), Mexico, Malaysia, France and Canada.
COLI investments are recorded at their net cash surrender value. Our investments in COLI policies are intended to be utilized as a long-term funding source for long-term benefit obligations. However, COLI can also be used as a source of liquidity. We believe the financial strength of the issuing insurance companies associated with our COLI policies is sufficient to meet their obligations.
Availability under credit facilities may be reduced related to compliance with applicable covenants. See Liquidity Facilities for more information.

We have a $250.0 global committed bank facility in effect through 2025. As of May 27, 2022, there were no borrowings outstanding under the facility, and we were in compliance with all covenants under the facility.
We have a $12.5 committed bank facility related to a subsidiary, which has current availability of $3.9 based on eligible accounts receivable of the subsidiary. As of May 27, 2022, $2.6 was outstanding under the facility.
We have unsecured uncommitted short-term credit facilities available for working capital purposes with various financial institutions with a total U.S. dollar borrowing capacity of up to $3.5 and a total foreign currency borrowing capacity of up to $7.5 as of May 27, 2022. These credit facilities have no stated expiration date but may be changed or canceled by the banks at any time. As of May 27, 2022, $0.4 was outstanding under these facilities.
Total consolidated debt as of May 27, 2022 was $482.4. Our debt primarily consists of $444.5 in term notes due in 2029 with an effective interest rate of 5.6%. In addition, we have a term loan with a balance of $34.1 as of May 27, 2022. The term loan has a floating interest rate based on 30-day LIBOR plus 1.20% and is due in Q1 2024. The term notes are unsecured, and the term loan is secured by our two corporate aircraft. The term notes and the term loan contain no financial covenants and are not cross-defaulted to our other debt facilities.
Liquidity Outlook
At May 27, 2022, our total liquidity, which is comprised of cash and cash equivalents and the cash surrender value of COLI, aggregated to $279.5. Our liquidity position, funds available under our credit facilities and cash generated from future operations are expected to be sufficient to finance our known or foreseeable liquidity needs, including our material cash requirements.
During Q1 2023, there have been no significant changes in the items that we have identified as our material committed cash requirements in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 25, 2022.
We also have other planned material usages of cash which we consider discretionary. This includes plans for capital expenditures which are expected to total approximately $60 to $70 in 2023 compared to $60.5 in 2022. In addition, we fund dividend payments declared by our Board of Directors. On June 22, 2022, we announced a quarterly dividend on our common stock of $0.145 per share, or approximately $16, to be paid in Q2 2023.

Our material cash requirements are subject to fluctuation based on business requirements, economic volatility or investments in strategic initiatives. We anticipate the cash expected to be generated from future operations and current cash and cash equivalents, funds available under our credit facilities and funds available from COLI will be sufficient to fulfill our existing material cash requirements.
On June 10, 2022, we acquired Halcon Furniture LLC in an all-cash transaction for $127.5 plus an adjustment of $3.1 for working capital. See Note 13 to the condensed consolidated financial statements for additional information related to the acquisition.

Forward-looking Statements
From time to time, in written and oral statements, we discuss our expectations regarding future events and our plans and objectives for future operations. These forward-looking statements discuss goals, intentions and expectations as to future trends, plans, events, results of operations or financial condition, or state other information relating to us, based on current beliefs of management as well as assumptions made by, and information currently available to, us. Forward-looking statements generally are accompanied by words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “forecast,” “intend,” “may,” “possible,” “potential,” “predict,” “project," "target” or other similar words, phrases or expressions. Although we believe these forward-looking statements are reasonable, they are based upon a number of assumptions concerning future conditions, any or all of which may ultimately prove to be inaccurate. Forward-looking statements involve a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements and vary from our expectations because of factors such as, but not limited to, competitive and general economic conditions domestically and internationally; acts of terrorism, war, governmental action, natural disasters, pandemics and other Force Majeure events; cyberattacks; the COVID-19 pandemic and the actions taken by various governments and third parties to combat the pandemic; changes in the legal and regulatory environment; changes in raw material, commodity and other input costs; currency fluctuations; changes in customer demand; and the other risks and contingencies detailed in this Report, our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and our other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We undertake no obligation to update, amend, or clarify forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.
