Item 2.05. Costs Associated With Exit or Disposal Activities.
On September 20, 2018, Under Armour, Inc. (the “Company”) announced an update to its previously disclosed 2018 restructuring plan based on an organizational and process redesign intended to optimize the Company’s strategic growth initiatives and overall business performance. Previously, the Company expected to incur approximately $190 million to $210 million of estimated pre-tax restructuring and related charges in connection with its 2018 restructuring plan. On September 14, 2018, the Company’s Board of Directors approved an update to the Company’s 2018 restructuring plan to include approximately $10 million of cash severance charges related to an approximate 3 percent reduction in the Company’s global workforce. Accordingly, the Company now expects approximately $200 million to $220 million of pre-tax restructuring and related charges to be incurred during 2018. This reduction in workforce is expected to be completed by March 31, 2019 and represents the final component and update to the Company’s 2018 restructuring plan.
This disclosure contains forward-looking statements within the “safe harbor” provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All statements other than those that are purely historical are forward-looking statements, and include statements regarding anticipated charges and restructuring costs and the timing of these measures. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties, assumptions and changes in circumstances that may cause the estimated future impact of these charges and restructuring costs to differ materially from the forward-looking statements. These risks include the Company’s ability to successfully execute its restructuring plan, higher than anticipated costs in implementing the restructuring plan, management distraction from ongoing business activities, damage to the Company’s reputation and brand image and workforce attrition beyond planned reductions. Additional information regarding other factors that could cause the Company’s results to differ can be found in the Company’s press release attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1, the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017, and the Company’s subsequent filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q.
