06:24 EDTGTGoodyear Tire to exit farm tire business in EMEA region
On January 31, the company announced in an 8-K filing that it intends to exit the farm tire business in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region and, accordingly, GDTF has initiated a plan to also discontinue farm tire production at the Amiens North manufacturing facility, which would result in the full closure of that facility. GDTF has initiated communications with affected associates regarding the full closure of the Amiens North manufacturing facility. The plans remain subject to consultation with the European Central Works Council, GDTF’s employee representatives and other relevant bodies in the EMEA region. In conjunction with these actions, in 4Q12, it recorded $74M and now estimates that the total charges associated with the above plans will be at least $230M, $191M of which have now been recorded. The remaining charges will be recognized as costs are incurred in future periods. Non-cash charges for accelerated depreciation of approximately $20M are expected to be offset by non-cash pension curtailment gains. The actions would eliminate approximately 6M units of high-cost physical capacity, although GDTF currently produces approximately 1.3M tires per year at the Amiens North manufacturing facility. The actions are expected to improve EMEA operating income by approximately $75M annually, as compared to 2012 results, following the closure.
