Item 2.02.

Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On May8, 2018, State Auto Financial Corporation (the "Company") issued a press release disclosing the Company’s results of operations for the three month periods ended March31, 2018 (the “Release"). The full text of the Release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.

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 net investment gains (losses), net of applicable taxes, on investment activity for the periods being reported. For the three month periods endedMarch31, 2018and2017, GAAP net loss was$0.05per diluted share and$0.08per diluted share, respectively, while net income per share from operations was$0.17per diluted share and net loss per share from operations was$0.20per diluted share for the same respective periods. For the three month periods endedMarch31, 2018and2017, net investment (loss) gain, net of applicable taxes, impacted the GAAP net loss per diluted share by $0.22 and $0.12, respectively.

Management uses net income (loss) from operations because it believes this calculation better indicates the Company’s 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.
