American Woodmark Corporation


On June 1, 2020, the Company’s Board of Directors approved the closure and eventual disposal of its manufacturing plant located in Humboldt, Tennessee. The closure is related to committed synergy capture from the acquisition of RSI Home Products Inc. and the subsequent realignment of its flatstock operations.  A portion of the Humboldt facility’s capacity had been previously moved to Anaheim, California and the remaining capacity will be shifting to its Anaheim and Toccoa, Georgia facilities.

The manufacturing plant is expected to cease operations in September 2020.  The Company expects to incur total pre-tax restructuring costs of $3.0 million to $5.0 million related to the closing of the plant, net of building proceeds. The restructuring costs consist of employee severance and separation costs of approximately $0.5 million to $1.0 million, and charges for asset impairment of property, equipment and inventory of approximately $2.5 million to $4.0 million.

The Company expects to recognize substantially all of these charges during fiscal 2021.  Once completed, the Company expects to realize ongoing savings of approximately $6.0 million to $7.0 million per year as a result of these actions.
