Item 2.02.

Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On May 2, 2017, State Auto Financial Corporation (the
“Company”)>issued a press release disclosing the Companys
results of operations for the three month period ended March 31,
2017 (the Release”). The full text of the Release is furnished as
Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
The Release included a non-GAAP financial measure, net income
(loss) from operations per diluted share. Net income (loss) from
operations differs from GAAP net income (loss) only by the
exclusion of realized capital gains (losses), net of applicable
taxes, on investment activity for the periods being reported. For
the three month periods ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, GAAP net
(loss) income was $(0.10)>per diluted share and $0.07>per
diluted share, respectively, while net (loss) income from
operations was $(0.22)>per diluted share and $0.05>per
diluted share for the same respective periods. For the three
month periods ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, realized capital
gains, net of applicable taxes, impacted GAAP net (loss) income
per diluted share by $0.12>and $0.02, respectively.
Management uses net income (loss) from operations because it
believes this calculation better indicates the Companys operating
performance than GAAP net income (loss) in that net income (loss)
from operations excludes the sometimes volatile realized capital
gains/losses, net of applicable federal income taxes, that can
produce inconsistent results.
