17:37 EDTVMIValmont announces $60M restructuring plan, sees $30M in pre-tax charges
"Given that market conditions in a number of our businesses are not expected to improve over the near-term, our board has authorized a broad restructuring plan of up to $60M. The initial restructuring actions will involve the consolidation of operations and other cost reduction activities, resulting in pre-tax charges of approximately $30M. The charges will include $19M of cash expenses and $11M of non-cash charges. These actions will take place over the remainder of 2015. Most of the restructuring activities will take place in our Infrastructure businesses where an improvement in the Australian industrial and mining economies is not expected near term and public spending for infrastructure in Europe and North America continues to be constrained. The cash expenses are expected to be recovered through lower operating costs within 12-18 months. Of the above costs, approximately $800,000 of pre-tax cash expenses were incurred during the first quarter related to the restructuring. We are also evaluating other actions that could result in as much as $30M of additional charges, most of which would be non-cash impairment charges," said the company.
