Item 2.05 Costs Associated with Exit Disposal Activities.

 

On October 16, 2023, Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. (the “Company”) announced a strategic restructuring designed to reduce expenses and preserve cash while maintaining the Company’s ability to expand its high-margin SaaS business. The strategic restructuring initiatives include a reduction in force that is expected to result in the termination of approximately 26 employees, representing approximately 24% of the Company’s workforce. The Company expects this workforce reduction to result in annual cost savings of approximately $5.8 million.

 

The Company estimates the one-time restructuring costs associated with the workforce reduction to be approximately $0.8 to $1.2 million, which consists primarily of severance payments and related benefits to affected employees. The Company communicated the workforce reduction on October 13, 2023, and the Company expects the expense associated with the strategic restructuring to be substantially recognized by the end of fiscal 2023. The estimates of the costs and expenses the Company expects to incur in connection with the strategic restructuring, including the workforce reduction, are subject to a number of assumptions and actual results may differ materially.
