|Restructuring and Related Activities [Abstract]|
|Other Severance Expense||SEVERANCE EXPENSE
In the second quarter of 2019, we recorded $2.9 million in selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses for severance and related expenses to reflect the separation costs for our former President and Chief Executive Officer.
In the first quarter of 2018, we announced that we were changing our residential go-to-market strategy and empowering our distributors with the responsibilities of marketing, merchandising and direct sales representation. The new structure was designed to provide enhanced support and responsiveness to retailers. As a result of the reorganization, approximately 70 positions were eliminated, and the impacted employees received severance benefits. We recognized charges of $3.1 million primarily in SG&A expenses.
The entire disclosure for restructuring and related activities. Description of restructuring activities such as exit and disposal activities, include facts and circumstances leading to the plan, the expected plan completion date, the major types of costs associated with the plan activities, total expected costs, the accrual balance at the end of the period, and the periods over which the remaining accrual will be settled.
