Item 2.05. Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities
On June 27, 2007, Hanesbrands Inc. (the “Company”) announced several actions in furtherance of its efforts to execute its consolidation and globalization cost-reduction strategy. The Company announced the closing of nine facilities, including a fabric cutting facility located in Canada (the “Canada Facility”), two sewing facilities located in the Dominican Republic (the “Dominican Republic Facilities”), three sewing facilities and one fabric cutting facility located in Mexico (the “Mexico Facilities”), a fabric cutting facility located in Puerto Rico (the “Puerto Rico Facility”) and a fabric lamination and sewing facility located elsewhere in the United States (the “United States Facility” and, together with the Canadian Facility, the Dominican Republic Facilities, the Mexico Facilities and the “Mexico Facilities,” the “Facilities”). The closures will result in the termination of approximately 50 employees at the Canadian Facility, approximately 2,500 employees at the Dominican Republic Facilities, approximately 2,200 employees at the Mexico Facilities, approximately 150 employees at the Puerto Rico Facility and approximately 70 employees at the United States Facility. In addition, the Company announced the termination of approximately 350 management and administrative employees, the majority of which are located in the United States. Production at each of the Facilities is expected to cease by the end of 2007, except for certain production at the United States Facility that is expected to cease by the end of the first quarter of 2008.
As a result of the actions described above, the Company expects to recognize gross restructuring and related charges totaling approximately $42 million before taxes. These charges include cash charges primarily related to severance and lease termination costs totaling approximately $30 million in aggregate. These charges also include non-cash charges totaling approximately $12 million related to accelerated depreciation including buildings, leasehold improvements, machinery and equipment. Of the approximately $42 million in charges, approximately $27 million is expected to be recognized in the quarter ending June 30, 2007, and the majority of the remainder is expected to be recognized by the end of the 2007 fiscal year.
