On January 29, 2020, Visteon Corporation (the “Company”) began to convey to representatives of affected employees details of a restructuring plan approved by senior management on January 16, 2020 to improve the Company’s efficiency and rationalize its footprint (the “Plan”). Under the Plan, the Company will reduce the number of employees at various sites. The plan is expected to lower the Company’s cost base, improve its financial performance and cash flow generation, and create a simplified organization best positioned to deliver on its key financial and operational priorities.

In connection with the Plan, the Company currently expects to incur total costs of between $18 million and $24 million. The total expected costs include employee severance, retention, termination, facilities restoration, and other related costs. The company does not anticipate any capital expenditures nor non-cash expenses. The Company also expects to incur minimal other transition costs. These actions under the Plan are expected to be substantially completed by mid-2021. The actual timing and cost of the Plan may differ materially from the Company’s current expectations and estimates.

This Current Report on Form 8-K includes forward-looking statements that are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements represent the Company’s goals, beliefs, plans and expectations about its prospects for the future and other future events. The forward-looking statements included in this Current Report on Form 8-K are made as of the date hereof or as of the date specified and are based on management’s current expectations and beliefs. Such statements are subject to a number of important assumptions, risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the Company’s actual performance to differ materially from that described in or indicated by the forward-looking statements. Those risks include, but are not limited to, risks that the Company may be unable to implement the Plan as anticipated on a timely basis or at all, that the expected amount of expenses associated with the Plan may exceed the Company’s projections, and that the Company may be unable to realize the full benefits of the Plan. The foregoing risks should be read in conjunction with other cautionary statements included herein, as well as in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 and subsequent reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Except as required by law, the Company expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to update any forward-looking statements to reflect any change in its expectations with regard thereto or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based.
