Item 2.05. Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.

On April 18, 2005, the Board of Directors of ADC Telecommunications, Inc. committed to a plan which directs our management to explore the sale or shut down the operations of our subsidiary, ADC Systems Integration UK Limited. ADC Systems Integration UK Limited employs approximately 90 people who are engaged in the provision of professional services that help plan, deploy and install communications networks for customers primarily in the United Kingdom. The proposed exit from the business of ADC Systems Integration UK Limited does not impact the remainder of our professional services business which we continue to operate.

Under the business exit plan, if management does not believe a sale can be completed on reasonable terms by July 29, 2005, the end of our third fiscal quarter, then management has been authorized to shut down operations conducted by the subsidiary. This decision was announced to affected employees, all of whom are in the United Kingdom, on April 21, 2005.

We are unable to estimate the potential gain/(loss) from a sale of the business. If management ultimately decides to shut down the operations, we will incur approximately $3.5 to $4.5 million in costs. These costs are estimated to include approximately $1.7 to $2.2 million for employee severance and approximately $1.2 to $1.7 million for facility lease terminations. Remaining costs associated with a shutdown would include, among other items, the writeoff of the leasehold asset of the business, vehicle lease termination costs and general administrative costs associated with closing business operations. The above stated estimates may differ from actual costs we would incur in the event the business is shut down.
