Item 2.05. Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.

As previously reported, on December 4, 2014, the Board of Directors of MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation (the “Company”) approved a plan to close the Company’s six-inch fabrication facility in Cheongju, Korea (the “6-inch fab”). According to this plan, the 6-inch fab was closed on February 29, 2016.

On April 4, 2016, the Company commenced a voluntary resignation program (the “Program”), which is available for all of the Company’s 6-inch fab employees and certain other manufacturing employees through on or about April 20, 2016. For those employees electing to resign under the Program, severance benefits, which have been fully accrued in the financial statements and are required by local legal requirements, will be paid in a lump sum, and other termination benefits will be paid in monthly installments over twelve months.

Due to the voluntary nature of this Program, the Company is unable at this time to provide an estimated amount or range of estimated amounts of the related severance and other termination benefits for those employees that volunteer to resign under the Program. The Company expects to file an amendment to this Current Report on Form 8-K within four business days after it makes a determination of an estimate or range of estimates of such amounts.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
