Item 7.01

Regulation FD Disclosure

On May 9, 2022, Armstrong Flooring, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), issued a press release announcing that the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries, Armstrong Flooring Latin America, Inc., a Delaware corporation, Armstrong Flooring Canada Ltd., a British Columbia corporation, and AFI Licensing LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, filed voluntary petitions for relief under chapter 11 of title 11 of the United States Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (collectively, the “Chapter 11 Filings”).

The Company will file a separate Current Report on Form 8-K that will include additional disclosure regarding (i) the Chapter 11 Filings, (ii) the Company’s continuing process for the sale of the Company and the consideration of other strategic alternatives, (iii) the Company’s entry into a credit agreement, subject to approval of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, providing for $30,000,000 of debtor-in-possession financing and (iv) certain events of default that occurred as a result of the Chapter 11 Filings under (A) that certain Credit Agreement, dated as of December 31, 2018 (as amended or supplemented from time to time), by and among the Company, as borrower, the guarantors named therein, the lenders party thereto and Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent and collateral agent, as Australian security trustee and as letter of credit issuer and as swingline lender and (B) that certain Term Loan Agreement, dated as of June 23, 2020 (as amended or supplemented from time to time), by and among the Company and Armstrong Flooring Pty Ltd, as borrowers, the guarantors named therein, the lenders party thereto and Pathlight Capital LP, as administrative agent, collateral agent and Australian security trustee.

The information in Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1, is being furnished herewith and shall not be deemed “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.

Cautionary Information Regarding Trading in the Company’s Securities.

The Company continues to face certain risks and uncertainties that have been affecting its business and operations, and these risks and uncertainties may affect the Company’s ability to enter into a sale transaction and could impact the outcome of the Chapter 11 Filings. Holders of the Company’s equity securities will likely be entitled to little or no recovery on their investment following the Chapter 11 Filings, and recoveries to other stakeholders cannot be determined at this time. The Company cautions that trading in the Company’s securities given the pendency of the Chapter 11 Filings is highly speculative and poses substantial risks. Trading prices for the Company’s securities may bear little or no relationship to the actual value realized, if any, by holders of the Company’s securities in the Chapter 11 Filings. Accordingly, the Company urges extreme caution with respect to existing and future investments in its securities.
