Item 2.05. Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.


On September 21, 2020, inTEST Corporation (the “Company”) notified employees in its Fremont, California facility of a plan to consolidate all manufacturing for its EMS Products division into the manufacturing operation located in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey. Currently, the Company’s interface products are manufactured in the Fremont facility, and the Company’s manipulator and docking hardware products are manufactured in the Mt. Laurel facility. This action will result in the closure of the Fremont facility and the termination of certain employees at that location. The consolidation of manufacturing operations is being undertaken to better serve customers through streamlined operations and reduce the fixed annual operating costs for the EMS Products division. The consolidation is expected to be substantially completed during the fourth quarter of 2020. A small engineering and sales office will be maintained in northern California after the consolidation of manufacturing operations has been completed.

As a result of this action, the Company expects to incur cash charges for severance and other one-time termination benefits ranging from $75,000 to $150,000. In addition, the Company expects to incur cash charges for other costs related to the facility consolidation, including moving costs and production start-up costs, ranging from $300,000 to $400,000. Most of these costs are expected to be incurred during the fourth quarter of 2020. The cash payments are expected to be made during the fourth quarter of 2020 and the first quarter of 2021. In addition, the Company intends to try to sublease its facility located in Fremont, California. When manufacturing operations cease in the Fremont facility, the Company expects to record an impairment charge related to the right-of-use asset for the lease of the Fremont facility as the Company does not currently expect to sublet the facility for the full remaining term of the lease. However, the Company does not currently have sufficient information to estimate the amount of this charge. As of December 31, 2020, the right-of-use asset related to this facility will total $1.1 million, prior to any charge for impairment, which would be a non-cash charge.







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.
