On September 13, 2017, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Pixelworks, Inc. (the “Company”) committed to a restructuring plan to integrate the recent acquisition of ViXS Systems Inc. which would result in an approximately 15% reduction in workforce, primarily in the areas of development, operations, sales and administration. The Board believes adoption of this restructuring plan will help streamline the Company’s operations and workforce, and more appropriately align the Company’s operating expenses with current revenue levels. The Company expects the restructuring to be substantially completed by the end of the Company’s fourth quarter ending December 31, 2017 and expects to incur total estimated restructuring charges of approximately $2.0 million related to employee severance and benefits. The Company currently expects that these charges will largely be recorded in the third quarter of 2017 and will result in cash expenditures of approximately $2.0 million, which expenditures are expected to occur primarily in the third quarter of 2017.

As a result of the restructuring, the Company expects to realize annualized savings of approximately $4.0 million.

On September 14, 2017, the Company issued a press release announcing the restructuring plan. The full text of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
