New Plan. ACCO announced a multi-year restructuring and cost savings program, with anticipated annualized pre-tax cost savings of at least $60 million. The Company expects to record a pre-tax restructuring charge for the period ended December 31, 2023 of approximately $13 million. This is in addition to a $9 million charge relating to the closure of the Sidney, NY facility. Total cash expenditures are expected to be $26 million with cash outflows of $18 million in 2024 and $8 million in 2025. The restructuring will better position the Company for long-term sustainable profitable growth, in our view, adding to the Company’s 2023 improvement in margins.

Details. The program incorporates initiatives to simplify and delayer the Company’s operating structure and reduce costs through headcount reductions, supply chain optimization, global footprint rationalization, and better leveraging of sourcing capabilities.
