Form 8-K for KEMET CORP

Results of Operations and Financial Condition, Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal


Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition

On November 1, 2012, KEMET Corporation (the "Company") issued a News Release announcing the preliminary consolidated results for the second fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2012.

A copy of this News Release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Form 8-K.



Item 2.05 Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities

On July 25, 2012, we committed to a global restructuring plan to respond to the continued economic slowdown, and in the quarter ended September 30, 2012 we incurred a $7.5 million charge to earnings related to termination benefits. On October 26, 2012, we expanded the global restructuring plan to include additional headcount reductions, which are expected to result in additional termination charges of approximately $4.0 to $5.0 million during the second half of fiscal year 2013. In addition, we are beginning the restructuring of our Evora, Portugal manufacturing facility. This activity is expected to be completed during our fourth quarter ending March 31, 2013. As a part of our ongoing commitment to expand our polymer capacity we will be moving certain Tantalum manufacturing equipment from the Evora, Portugal facility to our manufacturing facility in Mexico and the remainder of the Tantalum manufacturing equipment will be disposed. We anticipate that, as a result, we will write-off approximately $5.0 to $7.0 million in equipment and incur termination benefits in the range of $4.0 to $4.5 million. We will also have the manufacturing facility appraised to determine if the carrying value exceeds the fair value which would result in an impairment charge. In addition to facilitating our polymer expansion in Mexico this action will reduce the Tantalum business unit's operating costs as well as reduce our inventories and in turn, improve cash flow as we complete this fiscal year. The expected future total cash expenditures are estimated to be $8 to $9.5 million for the termination benefits described above.
