Item 2.05 Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities
On November 12, 2019, Trinity Industries, Inc. (“Trinity” or the “Company”) approved a restructuring plan to resize certain resources within the Company, reduce stranded costs, and better align support services with the Company’s strategy. As part of the restructuring program, the Company intends to eliminate approximately 80 positions across multiple locations and functions, including certain corporate and operational support functions located in Dallas, Texas. Position eliminations are expected to be complete within approximately 60 days. Other restructuring actions associated with this plan are expected to be substantially complete within the next year.
The restructuring is expected to lead to total restructuring charges of approximately $14-18 million, consisting of approximately $3-4 million in cash payments for severance costs and approximately $11-14 million of non-cash charges, primarily from write-downs of assets in the Company’s manufacturing footprint that will be underutilized as the Company executes its rail-focused strategy. The Company expects to incur these restructuring charges in the fourth quarter of 2019. Trinity estimates that this restructuring will generate future annualized cost savings of approximately $8-10 million. As the Company continues to reposition the organization, it is possible that it will engage in additional restructuring activities in 2020, potentially including the disposition of certain assets at amounts in excess of their carrying value.
