Note 14 - Restructuring Activities:
During the third quarter of fiscal 2009, the Company announced a plan to restructure the organization. As part of this plan, the Company intends to streamline its management structure and eliminate operational redundancies to enhance consumer focus, drive innovation more quickly to market, and establish a more scalable cost structure. As a result of these actions, on March 16, 2009, the Company announced that it expects to reduce its global workforce by up to four percent and incur gross restructuring charges of between $175 million and $225 million, primarily consisting of cash charges related to severance costs. The Company expects to recognize most of these charges during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009 and the first quarter of fiscal 2010. As of February 28, 2009, no restructuring charges have yet been incurred.
