Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.
In accordance with General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, the following information is being furnished pursuant to Item 7.01 of Form 8-K and is not deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), is not subject to the liabilities of that section and is not deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act.
On June 6, 2014, EveryWare Global, Inc. (the “Company”) issued conditional Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (“WARN”) Act notices (the “Notices”) to all employees at its (1) glass manufacturing and distribution center in Lancaster, Ohio (the “Lancaster Facility”), (2) distribution center in Savannah, Georgia (the “Savannah Facility”) and (3) glass manufacturing facility in Monaca, Pennsylvania (the “Monaca Facility,” and, together with the Lancaster Facility and the Savannah Facility, the “Facilities”), as a result of financial challenges, resulting in the Company falling into default under its term loan agreement as previously disclosed.
While the Notices begin the 60-day notice period that must be given prior to a plant closing under the WARN Act, the Company has not yet made a final determination to permanently close the Facilities. Whether the Company will permanently close the Facilities depends upon whether the Company is able to resolve its existing liquidity issues, including through amending its existing credit agreements. If the Company determines it is necessary to permanently close any of the Facilities, it is expected that this would occur during a fourteen day period beginning on August 11, 2014.
