The restructuring plan is expected to be substantially complete in the 1H19 first half of 2019.

The plan is expected to yield gross annual savings of approximately $12.5M and will be used to fund sales and strategic growth initiatives and those investments will start in 2019 yielding negligible net savings on the Company’s income statement.

The Company expects to record a non-cash charge of $8.2M in 4Q18 for material impairment of assets that include the write-down of certain obsolete, underutilized and impaired information technology and manufacturing assets.
