Item 2.05 Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities
Item 2.06 Material Impairments
This Current Report on Form 8-K/A amends and supplements the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Commercial Metals Company (the “Company”) on March 1, 2010 (the “Original 8-K”), disclosing the Company’s plans to exit the joist and deck business. At the time the Original 8-K was filed, the Company was unable to provide a good faith estimate of the amount or range of amounts of the costs and losses on a specific categorical basis associated with the Company’s exit of the joist and deck business. Since the filing of the Original 8-K, the Company has been able to determine such range of amounts, and this Current Report on Form 8-K/A is being filed to disclose the estimated amount of each major type of cost as required by Items 2.05 and 2.06 of Form 8-K.
As a result of the Company’s decision to exit the joist and deck business, the Company recorded after-tax costs and losses relating to impairment of fixed assets and intangibles, severance, inventory valuation, operation losses and other closing costs of approximately $38 million. Of the after-tax costs, $19 million relate to non-cash impairment charges of fixed assets (net of estimated proceeds upon a potential sale of the business), goodwill and other intangibles and $6 million relate to one-time employee termination severance and contract termination costs. All such costs are reflected as discontinued operations in the second fiscal quarter of 2010.
Future cash outlays related to the exit of the joist and deck business which relate only to one-time employee termination severance and contract termination costs are expected to be approximately $13 million of which we expect to incur approximately $3 million in additional after-tax charges related to such costs.
