Item 2.05. Costs Associated With Exit or Disposal Activities

On December 27, 2017, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of Revolution Lighting Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”), after assessing the poor performance of the Company’s common stock and the requirements under United States generally accepted accounting principles to reduce the Company’s book value to align with its market capitalization, determined to record an adjustment to the carrying values of the Company’s goodwill and intangible assets and to record a charge associated with the restructuring of its operations, reducing and consolidating warehouse space and the reduction of inventory by eliminating certain product lines.

As a result of the above, the Company will record a noncash charge of approximately $65-$70 million in the fourth quarter of 2017, which will consist of $50-$55 million in the reduction of the carrying value of goodwill and intangible assets and $15 million related to the restructuring and inventory charges noted above. The Company expects to complete its restructuring and inventory activities within the first quarter of 2018. The foregoing actions will not impact the Company’s compliance with its bank debt covenants.
