Item 2.05.
Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.
On June 11, 2020, the Board of Directors of Primo Water Corporation (the “Company”) approved a plan intended to optimize synergies from the Company’s transition to a pure-play water company following the previously disclosed acquisition of the legacy Primo business and to mitigate the negative financial and operational impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, including implementing headcount reductions and furloughs in North America, Europe, and Israel. The Company expects to incur approximately $19.0 million in severance and other related costs, all of which are expected to result in cash expenditures and are expected to be fully paid by the end of 2020. These actions are being implemented as part of a comprehensive review of the Company’s operations and are intended to streamline and reduce the Company’s operating cost structure and capitalize on previously communicated acquisition synergies yielding $35.0 million in annual run-rate synergies starting in 2022.
