Item 2.05. Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.

On January 12, 2022, Manitex International, Inc. (the “Company”) announced a restructuring plan (the “Restructuring”) that will result in the closure of its Badger Equipment facility in Winona, Minnesota. As part of the Restructuring, the Company intends to move the manufacturing of those straight mast boom cranes and aerial platforms (A62’s) now produced in Winona to its Georgetown, Texas facility. The Restructuring is expected to be completed around March 31, 2022.

The Company estimates that it will record a one-time pre-tax charge of approximately $3.5 million to $4.0 million related to inventory write-downs, impairment of fixed assets, and impairment of intangible assets in the fourth quarter of 2021. The Company estimates that it will incur severance and other plant closure costs of approximately $0.2 million to $0.4 million in the first quarter of 2022. Cash expenditures for severance, relating to a reduction in headcount, and other plant closure costs will be also incurred in the first quarter of 2022. The Company also estimates that it will have a cash recovery of $1.0 million to $2.0 million from the sale of inventory in connection with the Restructuring in 2022.

These estimates are subject to a number of assumptions, and actual results may differ. The Company may also incur additional costs not currently contemplated due to events that may occur as a result of, or that are associated with, the Restructuring.

Item 2.06. Material Impairments.

The information set forth in Item 2.05 is incorporated by reference herein.
