4 May, 2023
Steelcase (NYSE:SCS) disclosed:
On May 3, 2023, in response to persisting inflationary pressures and decreasing plant utilization in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (“EMEA”), the Board of Directors of Steelcase Inc . (the “Company”) approved plans for workforce reductions in France. These plans involve the reduction of approximately 40 to 50 salaried roles. The Company expects to incur approximately $10 million to $13 million in pre-tax restructuring charges in connection with these actions, consisting of cash severance payments and payment of other separation-related benefits. The Company has initiated procedures with the French central works council and will work closely with the French Labor Administration for approval of these actions. Depending on the timing of such approval, the actions are expected to be completed by the end of the Company’s fiscal year 2024, with most of the departures expected to be completed by the end of the third quarter of the Company’s fiscal year 2024. The Company anticipates annualized savings from these actions will be approximately $4 million to $5 million when fully implemented.
