Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities, Material Impairments

Item 2.05. Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.

On June 13, 2013, 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, 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 a possible sale. The decision to exit the security and microphone business allows 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 has completed a global net workforce reduction of approximately 35 administrative and support employees, resulting in anticipated annual cost savings of $2.0 million. The majority of staff reductions were 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, began 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 evaluated the resulting asset impairment, one-time employee termination costs and moving costs.

The Company previously reported that it estimated the one-time employee termination and moving pre-tax cash costs to approximate $400,000 to $500,000. The charges will be recorded in either restructuring charges or the Company's results from discontinued operations primarily in the 2013 second and third quarters.

At the time the restructuring plan was announced, the Company was unable in good faith to make a determination of an estimated range of impairment charges. On July 22, 2013, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors, in consultation with management, approved an estimated non-cash charge of approximately $515,000 for goodwill impairment and a non-cash charge in the range of $470,000 to $520,000 for impairment of fixed assets, inventory and leasehold interests. The majority of these expected charges will be recorded in the Company's results from discontinued operations for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013. None of these charges are expected to result in future cash expenditures.

Additional losses are possible as the Company completes the divestiture and dissolution of the security and microphone business.

Item 2.06. Material Impairments.

The information set forth above in Item 2.05 is hereby incorporated into Item 2.06 by reference.
