Cardinal Health announced that its Clinical and Medical Products businesses, which are expected to be spun off later this year as CareFusion Corporation, will reduce their global workforce by approximately 800 over six months and eliminate an additional 500 positions through normal attrition and not filling open roles.
In addition, Cardinal Health will implement cost control measures and additional reductions in discretionary spending across all of its businesses, primarily in response to a delay in hospital capital spending and the overall decline in the global economy.
As part of the workforce reduction, Cardinal Health expects to record a restructuring charge of approximately $33 million for the remainder of fiscal 2009 and an additional charge of approximately $24 million in fiscal 2010. The company estimates this action will deliver annual savings of approximately $110 million to $130 million within two years.
