Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities


Item 2.05. Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.

On June 13, 2013 IntriCon Corporation (the "Company") announced a global strategic restructuring plan designed to accelerate the Company's future growth by focusing resources on the highest potential growth areas and reduce costs by approximately $3.0 million annually. As part of this plan, the Company has decided to transfer its medical coil business from the Company's Maine facility to Minnesota to better leverage existing manufacturing capacity, and explore alternatives for the remaining security and microphone business, including possible sale. The decision to exit the security and microphone business was made to allow the Company to focus on its core body-worn device segment and to improve the Company's overall margins and profitability. In addition, the Company will complete a global net workforce reduction of approximately 35 administrative and support employees, resulting in immediate annual cost savings of $2.0 million. The majority of staff reductions are immediate, except in our Maine operation, where there will be a phased approach.

The plan, which was approved by the Company's Board of Directors on June 12, 2013, will begin immediately and is expected to be completed by the end of 2013. In connection with its decision to reduce its cost structure and divest the security and microphone business, the Company is evaluating the resulting asset impairment, one-time employee termination costs and moving costs. The Company currently estimates the one-time employee termination and moving costs to approximate $400,000 to $500,000. The majority of the expected charge will be recorded in the Company's results from discontinued operations for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013. At this time, the Company is unable in good faith to make a determination of an estimated range of impairment charges. Additional losses are possible as the Company completes the divestiture and dissolution of the security and microphone business.
