Item 2.05. Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.
On June 21, 2006, the Company filed a Current Report on Form 8-K with the Commission that contained a copy of a Press Release issued by the Company on the same day in which the Company announced that it was planning to realign its manufacturing capacity. On July 20, 2006, the Companys Board of Directors approved a restructuring plan to better align the Companys manufacturing capacity in certain higher cost geographies and to properly size its manufacturing sites with perceived current market conditions (the Restructuring Plan). The Restructuring Plan as discussed reflects the Companys intention only and that the restructuring decisions at certain foreign plants are still subject to consultation with the Companys employees and their representatives. Based on the analysis done to date, the Company currently expects to recognize approximately $200 to $250 million in pre-tax restructuring and impairment costs during the Companys fourth fiscal quarter of 2006 and over the course of fiscal years 2007 and 2008. A significant portion of these costs are currently expected to be recorded in the Companys operating results for the fiscal quarter ending August 31, 2006. The Company currently expects that a significant portion of the total restructuring costs will be related to employee benefit and severance arrangements. The charges related to the Restructuring Plan, excluding asset impairment charges, are currently expected to result in cash expenditures that will be payable over the course of the Companys fourth fiscal quarter of 2006 and over the course of fiscal years 2007 and 2008. The exact timing of these charges and cash outflows, as well as the estimated cost ranges by category type, have not been finalized. This information will be subject to the finalization of timetables for the transition of functions, consultation with employees and their representatives as well as the statutory severance requirements of the particular legal jurisdictions impacted, and the amount and timing of the actual charges may vary due to a variety of factors.
To the extent required by applicable rules, the Company will file one or more amendments to this Current Report on Form 8-K as details of the Restructuring Plan are refined and estimates of related costs and charges are finalized.
Item 2.06. Material Impairments.
In connection with the Restructuring Plan described in Item 2.05 above, the Company is performing an impairment assessment on certain long-term assets (including property, plant and equipment and net deferred tax assets) held by each facility impacted by the Restructuring Plan. Assets that are determined to be impaired will be written down to fair value. At this time, the Company is unable to make a final determination of the estimated range related to the impairment charges. However, to the extent required by applicable rules, the Company will file one or more amendments to this Current Report on Form 8-K or include such disclosures in future Forms 10-Q and 10-K as details of the Restructuring Plan are refined and estimates of the related costs and charges are finalized. The impairment charges ultimately recorded are not expected to result in material future cash expenditures.
Item 5.03. Amendments Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.
On July 20, 2006, the Board amended Section 4.1 of the Companys Bylaws to expressly permit Board committees to consist of one member. A copy of the Companys Bylaws, as amended, is attached to this Form 8-K as Exhibit 3.2 and incorporated herein by reference.
