So, as part of the seemingly impressive $1.7B over 4 year cost savings action plan, the cost of the voluntary buy out of the thousand or so employees will be $550M to $650M. This cost was not included in the Q3 and full year earnings projection so expect one-time (or more) charges to show up. Just for informational purposes, the employees choosing to leave receive 4 weeks of severance pay for every year of service up to a maximum of 104 weeks. In addition, they receive some level of funding into their healthcare reimbursement accounts. this was spelled out in an 8K SEC filing dated 2/15/2013.
