Severance Expense
SEVERANCE EXPENSE
In the first quarter of 2017, we announced that we were combining our commercial and residential go-to-market structures and related organization. The new structure was designed to provide enhanced support and responsiveness to retailers and contractors and to foster greater alignment with distributors, which cover both commercial and residential markets. As a result of this reorganization, approximately 40 positions were eliminated, and the impacted employees received severance benefits. We recognized charges of $4.6 million in selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expense as a result of this reorganization, of which $2.7 million and $1.9 million was recognized in the Resilient Flooring segment and Wood Flooring segment, respectively.
