Navistar International Corporation (the Company) is filing this Current Report on Form 8-K/A to provide an update on the estimated range of costs associated to the previously announced voluntary separation program (VSP) and the involuntary reduction in force. At the time of the Companys original filing of its Current Report on Form 8-K, which was filed on August 8, 2012, the Company could not estimate how many of the eligible participants would choose to participate and be accepted into the VSP, nor the number of employees to be impacted by the involuntary reduction in force.
ITEM 2.05 COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH EXIT OR DISPOSAL ACTIVITIES
As previously disclosed in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed on August 8, 2012, Navistar International Corporation (the Company) communicated to employees that it is taking actions to control spending across the Company with targeted reductions of certain costs. In addition to the expected integration synergies resulting from its ongoing efforts to consolidate its truck and engine engineering operations, as well as the relocation of its world headquarters, the Company is focusing on continued reductions in the amount of discretionary spending, including but not limited to reductions from efficiencies, or prioritizing or eliminating certain programs or projects.
The Company also announced that it is offering the majority of its U.S.-based non-represented salaried employees the opportunity to apply for a voluntary separation program (VSP). Employees who applied and are accepted in the VSP will receive enhanced exit benefits.
The Company further announced that, along with the employees that choose to participate in the VSP, it will use attrition and, if necessary, an involuntary reduction in force to eliminate additional positions in order to meet its targeted reductions goal. Severance benefits of various amounts, depending on the pay grade and length of service of the affected employees, would be payable under the reduction in force.
As of August 29, 2012, the Company determined that an involuntary reduction in force was necessary to meet its targeted cost reduction goals. Furthermore, the Company estimated that it will incur between $40 million and $60 million of restructuring charges based on the number of employees that applied for and are expected to be accepted into the VSP, as well as the number of employees to be impacted by the involuntary reduction in force. The Company expects to complete the VSP and involuntary reduction in force, and recognize substantially all of the related charges, in the fourth quarter of 2012.
