Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities, Material Impairments, Other Event


Item 2.05 Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities

On January 22, 2014, Semtech Corporation (the "Company") committed to a plan to reduce its workforce by approximately 6%, with positions to be eliminated at multiple facilities and offices by the end of the first quarter of the Company's fiscal year 2015. The plan was developed to capture the synergies associated with the combination of the Company's Advanced Communications and Gennum Product Groups announced in December 2013, and to better align the Company's cost structure with its business outlook for fiscal year 2015.

The Company estimates that the workforce reduction will result in total pre-tax charges of approximately $2.5 million, the majority of which it expects to record in the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2014. These charges consist of one-time termination benefits, including cash severance costs, substantially all of which the Company expects to pay in the first quarter of fiscal year 2015.

The Company also expects to take additional one-time non-cash charges in connection with the combination of the product groups, including, but not limited to, the write down of inventory, goodwill and other intangibles and the impairment of fixed and other assets. The exact timing of these additional non-cash charges, as well as the estimated cost ranges by category type for these one-time charges, have not been finalized.
