The information contained in this Item 2.02 and Exhibit 99.1

Item 2.05. Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.
Following a review of the current cost structure of the
Company, on March 15, 2017, the Company committed to
cost-savings initiatives intended to better align the Companys
global infrastructure with the current business environment.
These initiatives primarily constitute a reduction in the
Companys workforce predominantly impacting its North American
and Swiss operations. The Company expects these initiatives to
yield approximately $12.0 million of pre-tax savings in fiscal
2018 (excluding the impact of the charges described below) and
approximately $15.0 million in ongoing annual pre-tax savings,
with the majority being in general and administrative expenses.
The cost-savings initiatives are expected to result in a
pre-tax charge in a range of approximately $7.0 million to
$10.0 million predominantly in the first quarter of fiscal
2018, with the balance being incurred throughout the remainder
of the fiscal year. Approximately $6.0 million to $9.0 million
of the aggregate amount represents cash charges for employee
termination costs. Of the balance, approximately $0.5 million
represents a non-cash charge for a fixed asset write-down, with
the remainder being other miscellaneous cash charges.
