Item 2.05 Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.
On September 30, 2020, in connection with its plan to reduce overall costs in response to economic and industry factors, the Board of Directors of Visteon Corporation (the “Company”) approved a restructuring plan to improve the Company’s efficiency and rationalize its footprint (the “Plan”). Under the Plan, the Company will globally reduce the number of employees at various sites around the world. 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 $35 million and $40 million. The total expected costs are for cash payments for employee severance, retention and termination costs. The Company also expects to incur minimal other transition costs. The actions under the Plan are expected to be completed by the middle of 2022.The actual timing and costs of the Plan may differ materially from the Company’s current expectations and estimates.
