Item 2.05 Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.

On March 1, 2017, Richard W. Florea, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Skyline Corporation (the “Corporation”), announced to employees at the Corporation’s Elkhart, Indiana facility that the Corporation has determined to suspend operations at the Elkhart facility. The suspension is due to the plant being unable to profitably operate since it opened in June 2016. Despite demand from manufactured housing dealerships and manufactured housing communities, the leased facility used for production prevented daily volumes to reach and maintain profitable efficiencies. The Corporation anticipates having sufficient orders to maintain production at the Elkhart facility until March 8, 2017. The majority of the workforce is expected to be terminated shortly after production ceases.

As of the date of this filing, due to uncertainty associated with the disposition of remaining raw material inventory and other factors, the Corporation is unable to make a good faith determination of an estimate of (1) the total amount or range of amounts expected to be incurred in connection with the major types of costs associated with the suspension of operations at the Elkhart facility (such as one-time termination benefits, contract termination costs, and other associated costs), (2) the total amount or range of amounts expected to be incurred in connection with the action, or (3) the amount or range of amounts of the charge that will result in future cash expenditures. The Corporation will file an amended report on Form 8-K in connection with the Corporation’s determination of such estimates or range of estimates.

Forward-Looking Statements

Information contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K contains “forward-looking statements,” including but not limited to statements related to the suspension of operations at the Elkhart facility and the effects of such action, which are based on current expectations, forecasts, and assumptions that involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual outcomes and results to differ materially. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, possible adverse consequences to the Corporation in connection with the suspension of operations at the facility, general business and economic conditions, and other factors, risks, and uncertainties contained in the Corporation’s other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. For a further list and description of such risks, see the reports and other filings made by the Corporation with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended May 31, 2016. The Corporation disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.


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