Item 2.05 Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.

On June 12, 2012, Intermec, Inc. (“we,” “our” or “the company”) committed to a business restructuring plan intended to reduce our cost structure. We issued a press release on the same date announcing the restructuring activities described in this Item 2.05 of this Current Report. Affected employees will be notified beginning the same day.

The restructuring plan is intended to bring the company’s cost structure in line with our current and anticipated needs, and will principally affect our general and administrative, and support functions. We expect that the plan will lower costs and improve profitability, and is primarily focused on North America and Europe. The plan is expected to result in savings on an annualized basis of approximately $19 million to $21 million when fully implemented. We will begin to realize savings from these actions in the third quarter of 2012. The savings directly related to this restructuring plan in the second half of 2012 are expected to be approximately $7 million to $8 million.

This plan will be implemented over the remainder of 2012, with most of the reductions occurring during the second and third quarters. This plan will reduce our workforce of about 2,300 employees worldwide by approximately 170 employees. Our Vocollect subsidiary will not be directly affected by the restructuring plan.

Total restructuring costs are expected to be in a pre-tax range of $8 million to $9 million, including employee termination costs of approximately $7 million to $8 million and other transitional costs of approximately $1 million. We expect to record approximately $6 million to $7 million of this restructuring charge in the second quarter of 2012, and expect the remainder will be recorded in the third and fourth quarters. We anticipate that all of the severance related and periodic transitional costs will be cash expenditures.
