CESCA THERAPEUTICS INC. (NASDAQ:KOOL) Files An 8-K Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal ActivitiesItem 2.05 Costs Associated With Exit or Disposal Activities.
On June 1, 2018, Cesca Therapeutics Inc. (the “Company”) initiated a restructuring initiative to lower operating expenses while the Company focuses on driving growth of revenue-generating products. This action reduces its US and India workforce by approximately 25% to a total of 60 full-time equivalent employees. Cesca expects the reduction in force in addition to other cost savings to result in approximately $2.5 million in annualized operating expense savings once the plan is fully implemented. The Company expects to incur a restructuring charge of approximately $238,000 in the second quarter of 2018, which includes one-time termination benefits principally comprised of severance payments. A copy of the press release announcing the plan to reduce costs is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
This Item 2.05 contains forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, statements related to the Company’s anticipation of reduction in costs, better alignment between its workforce and its business, and the expected costs associated with restructuring charges and termination benefits. These forward-looking statements are based on the Company’s current expectations and inherently involve significant risks and uncertainties. The Company’s actual results and the timing of events could differ materially from those anticipated in such forward looking statements as a result of these risks and uncertainties. The Company’s workforce reduction costs may be greater than anticipated and this reduction in force and any future workforce and expense reductions may have an adverse impact on the Company’s clinical and commercial activities. The Company undertakes no duty or obligation to update any forward-looking statements contained in this Item 2.05 as a result of new information, future events or changes in its expectations.
