CSS Industries, Inc. (NYSE:CSS) Files An 8-K Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities
Item 2.05 Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.

On August 30, 2019, we committed to a restructuring plan to further reduce our cost base. As part of the plan, we are reducing our employment costs by eliminating certain positions, primarily in the United States. We initiated these actions to better position ourselves for improved profitability and to better align our resources with our current business operations. These actions will largely be completed during the second quarter of fiscal 2020. We expect that the execution of this plan will result in operational efficiencies and a reduction of our overall cost structure. In connection with these actions, we expect to incur pre-tax restructuring charges in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 that are currently estimated to be approximately $1,000,000, all related to employee severance costs. These changes are expected to require cash expenditures in the amount of the charges.
