Item 2.05 Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.

On February 18, 2013, Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc. (the “Company”) announced a North American site consolidation plan (the “Plan”) designed to create a more simplified and efficient organization that is aligned more closely with its business priorities. The Plan includes closure of twelve offices and one warehouse. The Company is also implementing changes to corporate operating models intended to reduce costs associated with product solutions development. The costs of implementing these changes primarily consist of employee severance and relocation costs, and lease exit costs.

The estimated pre-tax costs to implement these changes consist of employee severance of approximately $10 million, relocation costs of up to approximately $16 million, and lease exit costs totaling approximately $3 million. Considering the timing of these changes, the Company estimates that primarily all charges will be recorded in the first quarter of 2013 with the exception of lease exit costs which are expected to be recognized in the third quarter of 2013. The Company expects to complete the actions by the end of 2013.

The amount of the charges noted above and the mix of severance charges and relocation costs are estimates and the actual charges may vary materially based on the level of employee relocations and terminations; the timing and amount of sublease income and other related expenses; and changes in management’s assumptions.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
