Item 8.01 Other Events.

On August 17, 2013, management of Quanex Building Products Corporation (the "Company") recommended and the Board of Directors approved ceasing all activities associated with the implementation (the "Implementation") of a Company-wide enterprise resource planning system. This decision was based on a number of elements, with the primary element being the fact that multiple organic growth opportunities have been identified and are available to the Company today that were not available when the Implementation began in 2010. These new growth opportunities will require capital investment but offer significantly higher returns on invested capital than a continued investment in the ERP System. Some of these growth opportunities could be implemented beginning in 2014.

In connection with ceasing the Implementation, the near-term objective will be to transition all of the locations currently on the new system to legacy systems as expeditiously as possible, expected to be completed in three to six months. Over the long term, the strategy will be to have one consistent system across the plants within each business unit. These systems may vary from business unit to business unit. The Company's payroll/HR system is expected to continue on the newly implemented system. As of July 31, 2013 there was $21.3 million of fixed assets on the balance sheet attributable to the Implementation. Of that amount, $2.6 million relates to the Company's payroll/HR system and will be depreciated over the next 6 quarters. The remaining $18.7 million will be depreciated on an accelerated basis between today and when the locations are transitioned off of the new system in three to six months. The Company estimates incurring minimal costs associated with one-time termination benefits, contract termination costs or other costs.
