HOUGHTON MIFFLIN HARCOURT CO : Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities (form 8-K)

09/08/2020 | 08:03am EST

Item 2.05. Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.

On September 4, 2020, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Company (the "Company") finalized its previously announced voluntary early retirement incentive program (the "Voluntary Retirement Program"). The Voluntary Retirement Program was offered to all U.S. based employees who are at least 55 years of age and have at least five years of service with the Company. Of the eligible employees, 166 elected to participate in the Voluntary Retirement Program (the "Electing Employees"), representing approximately 5% of the Company's employee base. The majority of the Electing Employees will voluntarily retire from the Company as of September 4, 2020 with select Electing Employees leaving later in the year. However, Electing Employees have the option to withdraw from the Voluntary Retirement Program until September 21, 2020. Each of the Electing Employees will receive separation payments in accordance with the Company's severance policy and such separation payments are made for the relevant number of weeks in accordance with the Company's regular payroll schedule.

The total one-time, non-recurring cost incurred by the Company in connection with the Voluntary Retirement Program, all of which represents cash expenditures, is estimated to be approximately $13.5 million. As a result of the Voluntary Retirement Program the Company estimates annualized, run rate cost savings of approximately $17 to $18 million.
