Form 8-K for MASONITE INTERNATIONAL CORP


21-Aug-2014

Other Events


Item 8.01 Other Matters.

On August 20, 2014, the Board of Directors of Masonite Israel Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Masonite International Corporation, decided to voluntarily seek a Stay of Proceedings from the Israeli courts in an attempt to restructure the business. The court filing was made on August 21, 2014. The court is expected to appoint a Trustee to oversee the operation of the business and to attempt to restructure it.
The action to seek court protection followed a comprehensive evaluation of the alternatives for the business, including an organized sale process that was ultimately unsuccessful.
As a result of Masonite Israel Ltd.'s filing, we preliminarily estimate that Masonite International Corporation will incur between $8 million and $12 million of charges primarily related to assets disposed of, abandoned or impaired less any amount received as a result of the court process. Of this amount, we estimate that approximately $1 million to $2 million would be cash-related costs for the payment of certain fees and guarantees.
Masonite Israel Ltd. represented approximately 1.0 percent of total consolidated net sales of Masonite International Corporation for the twelve months ended June 29, 2014, and is currently operating at a loss.
