On January 24, 2013, Katy Industries, Inc. (the “Company”) announced the closure in 60 days of the Glit/Microtron plant in Wrens, Georgia. The primary product lines produced at the Glit/Microtron plant included non-woven abrasives, sand screen and scrubbing pads. The Glit/Microtron plant accounted for approximately $20 million in annual net sales. Management has concluded it is likely a material impairment has occurred based upon the announced closure. Impairment charges are expected to include write-downs of inventory, property, equipment and intangibles to fair market value. Currently, Management cannot reasonably estimate the amount of the impairment charge, however the net book value of property, equipment and intangibles at the Glit/Microtron plant are approximately $7.3M.
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.
