Note 5. Restructuring
As part of an effort to better focus and align the Company’s resources toward profitable growth, on August 24, 2015, the Board authorized the Company to undertake steps to commence a restructuring of the business and operations, which concluded during the third quarter of 2016. The Company closed certain facilities, reduced headcount, discontinued products and renegotiated certain contracts resulting in restructuring and other charges of $18.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2015 and recoveries of such charges of $3.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2016.
Included in these charges, for the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, the Company recorded restructuring charges in “Cost of revenue” of $2.3 million and $2.9 million, respectively, related to the write-down of inventory identified to be discontinued in the restructuring plan.
For the year ended December 31, 2016, the Company recorded a credit in “Restructuring and other charges” of $3.5 million which primarily included: (i) an expense credit of $4.8 million related to the release of the restructuring accrual of $7.0 million which was expensed during the year ended December 31, 2015, offset by the cash payment of $2.2 million related to the settlement agreement which terminated all future commitments between ETW Corporation (“ETW”) and the Company (see Note 15); (ii) $1.4 million related to write-off of long-lived assets related to the abandonment of certain lease facilities; and (iii) $0.9 million related to severance and other employee compensation costs. The restructuring plan was substantially complete as of December 31, 2016.
For the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company recorded expenses of $18.3 million in “Restructuring and other charges” primarily comprised of: (i) $7.7 million related to cancellation of certain contracts and sponsorship agreements, primarily related to the ETW commitment; (ii) write-down of prepaid stock compensation related to terminated endorsement agreements of $5.4 million; (iii) $2.7 million related to the accelerated vesting of 657,310 shares of restricted stock for severed employees; (iv) $1.4 million related to severance and benefit costs related to terminated employees; and (v) $0.9 million for costs associated with permanently vacating certain leased facilities, including $0.4 million write-off of long-lived assets.
