The Registrant previously filed a Form S-8 (File No. 333-248451) registering 3,700,000 shares of Common Stock under the Interface, Inc. 2020 Omnibus Stock Incentive Plan on August 28, 2020 (the “Prior Registration Statement”). This Registration Statement relates to securities of the same class as that to which the Prior Registration Statement relates, and is submitted in accordance with General Instruction E to Form S-8 regarding registration of additional securities. In accordance with such instruction, the contents of the Prior Registration Statement are incorporated by reference into this Registration Statement, except to the extent supplemented, amended or superseded by the information set forth herein.

PART II
INFORMATION REQUIRED IN THE REGISTRATION STATEMENT

Item 5. Interests of Named Experts and Counsel.

David B. Foshee, who is providing the legal opinion attached as Exhibit 5.1 hereto, is Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary of the Registrant. Mr. Foshee: (1) beneficially owns 217,573 shares of the Common Stock; and (2) has received, and is eligible to receive, awards under the Plan.

Item 6. Indemnification of Directors and Officers.

As provided under Georgia law, the Registrant’s Articles of Incorporation, as restated with the accompanying Clarification Certificate (the “Articles”), provide that a director shall not be personally liable to the Registrant or its shareholders for monetary damages for breach of duty of care or any other duty owed to the Registrant as a director, except that such provision shall not eliminate or limit the liability of a director: (1) for any appropriation, in violation of a director’s duties, of any business opportunity of the Registrant; (2) for acts or omissions which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law; (3) for unlawful corporate distributions; or (4) for any transaction from which the director received an improper benefit.

Under Article VII of the Registrant’s Bylaws, as amended and restated (the “Bylaws”), the Registrant is authorized to indemnify its officers and directors for any liability and expense incurred by them in connection with or resulting from any threatened, pending or completed legal action or other proceeding or investigation by reason of his or her being or having been an officer or director. An officer or director may only be indemnified if such officer or director acted in good faith and in a manner such officer or director reasonably believed to be in, or not opposed to, the best interests of the Registrant, and, with respect to a criminal matter, such officer or director did not have reasonable cause to believe their conduct was unlawful. No officer or director who has been adjudged liable for the improper receipt of a personal benefit is entitled to indemnification.

Any officer or director who has been wholly successful on the merits or otherwise in an action or proceeding in his or her official capacity is entitled to indemnification as to expenses by the Registrant. All other determinations in respect of indemnification shall be made by either: (1) a majority vote of a quorum of disinterested directors; (2) independent legal counsel selected in accordance with the Bylaws and at the request of the Registrant’s Board of Directors; or (3) the holders of a majority of the Registrant’s stock who at such time are entitled to vote for the election of directors.

The provisions of the Bylaws on indemnification are consistent in all material respects with the laws of the State of Georgia, which authorize indemnification of corporate officers and directors.




Subject to the foregoing, the Registrant has entered into indemnification agreements with each of its executive officers and directors providing such officers and directors indemnification and expense advancement to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law and the Articles and Bylaws, subject to certain limitations and procedural requirements. The Registrant’s directors and officers are also insured against losses arising from any claim against them as such for wrongful acts or omissions, subject to certain limitations.

Re: Registration Statement on Form S-8 Filed by Interface, Inc.

Ladies and Gentlemen:

I have acted as Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary for Interface, Inc., a Georgia corporation (the “Company”), in connection with the registration of 3,200,000 shares (the “Shares”) of common stock, $0.10 par value per share, of the Company that may be issued or delivered and sold pursuant to the Interface, Inc. 2020 Omnibus Stock Incentive Plan, as Amended and Restated Effective May 13, 2024 (the “Plan”). In connection with the opinion expressed herein, I have examined such documents, records and matters of law as I have deemed relevant or necessary for purposes of such opinion. Based on the foregoing, and subject to the further limitations, qualifications and assumptions set forth herein, it is my opinion that the Shares that may be issued or delivered and sold pursuant to the Plan and the authorized award agreements thereunder (the “Award Agreements”) will be, when issued or delivered and sold in accordance with the Plan and the Award Agreements, validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable.

The opinion expressed herein is limited to the laws of the State of Georgia, as currently in effect, and I express no opinion as to the effect of the laws of any other jurisdiction on the opinion expressed herein. In addition, I have assumed that the resolutions authorizing the Company to issue or deliver and sell the Shares pursuant to the Plan and the Award Agreements will be in full force and effect at all times at which the Shares are issued or delivered and sold by the Company. In rendering the opinion above, I have assumed that each award under the Plan will be approved by the Board of Directors of the Company or an authorized committee of the Board of Directors.

I hereby consent to the filing of this opinion as Exhibit 5.1 to the Registration Statement on Form S-8 filed by the Company to effect registration of the Shares under the Securities Act of 1933.
 
Very truly yours,

/s/ David B. Foshee
