  Item 2.05  



  Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities


As part of the previously announced comprehensive review of Liquidmetal Technologies, Inc.’s (the “Company”) operating strategy, the Company’s board of directors has approved a corporate restructuring plan proposed by management (“the Restructuring Plan”) pursuant to which the Company intends to wind down its manufacturing operations at the Company’s Lake Forest, CA facility and seek to outsource the manufacture of parts utilizing the Company’s technology through its domestic and international manufacturing partners. The Company will seek to identify and develop additional strategic partners to engage in domestic manufacturing efforts. In addition, the Restructuring Plan includes reductions in operational costs and employee headcount, with the goal of preserving and maximizing the value of the Company’s assets. Pursuant to the Restructuring Plan, the Company intends to dispose of equipment that is not expected to be utilized prospectively, lease the Company’s operating facility to a commercial tenant, and identify additional opportunities in order to realize the full value of the Company’s intellectual property.


Total pre-tax charges associated with the Restructuring Plan are expected to be approximately $250,000. Most charges are expected to be incurred during the third quarter of 2019. The charges are expected to be related to employee severance, retention, early contract termination and other restructuring related costs. The Company expects to reduce headcount by approximately 15 employees as a result of these actions. As the Company completes these actions over the coming months, additional charges and headcount reductions could occur.






  Item 2.06 



  Material Impairments


The Company has concluded that non-cash impairment charges to the Company’s long-lived assets are required under generally accepted accounting principles of the United States as a result of the above-described Restructuring Plan. In connection with the Restructuring Plan, discussed in Item 2.05 above, the Company has reevaluated the asset grouping and future use of its manufacturing assets.


The Company considers the approval of the Restructuring Plan be a triggering event that will require the Company to perform an impairment analysis of its manufacturing assets, utilizing different asset group assumptions than those previously considered. This analysis will be performed as of June 30, 2019. While quantitative amounts are not yet estimable, the Company expects to record a material non-cash impairment charge as part of its June 30, 2019 consolidated financial statements. Final amounts will be included in the Company’s next Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q or in an amendment to this Form 8-K.


Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.


The Company has issued a press release, dated July 10, 2019, relating to the Restructuring Plan. The press release is attached to this Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1.



Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.
