Item 2.05
 Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.

On October 18, 2019, Westell Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) approved a plan to restructure its business, including a reduction of headcount that spanned locations, functions, and segments. The planned restructuring is scheduled to be substantially completed on October 18, 2019. The restructuring is part of a plan to reduce ongoing expenses and focus the business on three areas for new product growth: in-building wireless, fiber deployment, and remote monitoring.
The Company expects to incur charges totaling approximately $0.2 million for the estimated cash payments related to employee separation benefits. Substantially all of the $0.2 million of estimated cash payments related to this matter are expected to occur by December 31, 2019. The Company expects efficiencies and annual cost savings in excess of $1.7 million as a result of the restructuring.
