Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR), in response to speculation about changes to its R&D and Engineering teams, stated: “Kevin Sullivan, formerly Keurig’s Chief Technology Officer, remains with the company and has no plans to leave. Over the past 15 months, Kevin and Brian Kelley, Keurig’s President and CEO, have been working closely together to shift Kevin’s responsibilities at his request. Kevin will now focus exclusively on critical technology initiatives for the company. In April 2015, following a comprehensive search to find the best candidate to serve as Keurig’s Chief Technology Officer, Mark Choe assumed the position, joining Keurig from Whirlpool Corporation (WHR). Since Mark began in his role, he and Kevin have been working closely together to ensure a seamless transition. There has been no shake-up in our R&D division.”

17:19 EDTWHRWhirlpool sees $144M in restructuring costs for Italy operations
In a regulatory filing, Whirlpool reports that on April 15, it committed to an industrial plan for Italy to integrate its legacy Italian operations with those of Indesit. These actions are expected to result in the closure of a manufacturing facility in Carinaro and R&D facility in None; the integration of a manufacturing facility in Albacina into a facility in Melano; and certain other headcount reductions in manufacturing facilities in Fabriano, Comunanza and Naples. The company expects that approximately 1,350 full-time positions, most of which were deemed redundant by Indesit prior to the acquisition, will be impacted by these actions. The company expects these actions to be substantially complete in 2018. The company estimates that it will incur up to approximately $101M in employee-related costs, $27M in asset impairment costs, and $16M in other costs in connection with these actions. The company estimates that it will incur a total of approximately $144M in costs as itemized above through 2018 in connection with these actions. The company estimates that approximately $118M of the estimated $144M total cost will result in future cash expenditures. The company has previously reported anticipated restructuring charges of up to $300M for FY15. The actions outlined above are expected to fall within these anticipated charges.
