Item 2.05 Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.

On September 18, 2006, we began notifying our employees of restructuring initiatives that we expect will result in the elimination of approximately 225 employment positions. These initiatives have arisen from our continuing efforts to reduce costs in a highly competitive marketplace. The elimination of positions will occur across all geographic regions in which we operate (EMEA, AsiaPac and Americas). The initiatives also will result in the closure of two facilities whose operations will be consolidated to other existing locations. The termination of employment positions has commenced already within some regions, and we presently expect to complete almost all of these restructuring initiatives by the end of June, 2007.

We presently expect the range of future cash expenditures associated with these restructuring initiatives to be $10 million to $12 million. We expect $9 million to $11 million of these expenditures to relate to employee termination costs and that approximately $1 million of these expenditures will relate to facility closures. In addition to these cash expenditures for the restructuring intiatives, we also expect to have related non-cash impairment costs of approximately $600,000 associated with writdedowns on the values of fixed assets.
