Item 2.05Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activity.
On April 27, 2018, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the Company committed to a restructuring plan to make the operation of the Company more efficient which would result in an approximately 5% reduction in workforce, primarily in the areas of development, marketing 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 third quarter ending September 30, 2018 and expects to incur total estimated restructuring charges of approximately $1.1 million related to employee severance and benefits and approximately $0.9 million related to closing the Hong Kong office and reducing the size of the Toronto office. The Company currently expects that these charges will largely be recorded in the second and third quarters of 2018 and will result in cash expenditures of approximately $2 million over the next four years.
As a result of the restructuring, the Company expects to realize annualized savings of approximately $2.0 million.
