Albany ends consultation to restructure French operations

Albany International Corp. announced that its subsidiary, Albany International France S.A.S., has completed consultations with employee works councils regarding a proposal to restructure operations at the Company’s Machine Clothing production facilities in Sélestat and St. Junien.

The proposed restructuring, initially announced in November 2012, is expected to reduce employment by approximately 200 positions at these locations. The Company expects most of the workforce reduction to occur during the third quarter of the 2013.

The Company currently expects to record a restructuring charge of $29-$31 million in the second quarter of 2013, representing estimated future cash expenditures for severance and social costs for affected employees.

This estimate does not include anticipated cash and non-cash charges associated with the write-off or write-down of manufacturing equipment, outplacement and similar programs, and pension curtailment, which cannot presently be estimated. The Company will provide additional information about these costs as data becomes available and will record them as restructuring charges in the period in which they are incurred.

The Company expects that the restructuring actions will lead to a reduction in annual operating expenses of approximately $10 million. The Company currently expects to start realizing a portion of these savings beginning in the fourth quarter of 2013, with the full effect to be realized by the fourth quarter of 2014.
