Item 2.05. Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities
On January 27, 2014, FormFactor, Inc. announced a global organizational restructuring and cost reduction plan. As part of the plan, the company will eliminate approximately 61 positions, or 6% of its workforce, and expects to realize about US$1M in savings in fiscal Q1 2014 (not including restructuring charges), and about US$2M in savings per quarter beginning in fiscal Q2 of 2014. The restructuring and cost reduction plan is the next step being undertaken by the Company to realize further synergies from the acquisition of Astria Semiconductor Holdings, Inc., including its wholly-owned subsidiary MicroProbe, Inc. The actions are intended to improve the Company’s efficiency and effectiveness while positioning the Company for profitability in fiscal 2014. FormFactor expects to incur approximately $1.2M in charges related to employee termination, the majority of which the company will record in Q1 of fiscal 2014, when the activities comprising the plan are expected to be substantially completed.
