09:04 EDTKMBKimberly Clark signs agreements to purchase pension annuity contracts
Kimberly-Clark announced it has entered into purchase agreements with The Prudential Insurance Company of America and Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company for group annuity contracts that will transfer payment responsibility for retirement pension benefits owed to approximately 21,000 Kimberly-Clark retirees in the U.S. to the two insurers. By transferring the obligations to Prudential and MassMutual, Kimberly-Clark will reduce its pension projected benefit obligation by approximately $2.5B. Kimberly-Clark expects to make a $400M to $475M contribution to its U.S. pension plan to support this transaction. This contribution will be funded by debt financing and is incremental to the company's previous assumption for 2015 global defined benefit pension plan contributions of up to $100M. As a result of the annuity purchases, Kimberly-Clark expects to recognize a non-cash pension settlement charge of $0.8 billion after tax ($1.3 billion before-tax) in the second quarter of 2015. This charge will be excluded from the company's 2015 adjusted results.
