Movado Group Inc. is planning a restructuring effort, including job eliminations, due to the “ongoing economic challenges resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The American watchmaker (NYSE: MOV) said in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that it’s seeking to “reduce operating expenses and adjust cash flows.”

The number of layoffs planned was not disclosed. The restructuring plan began on June 29.

Paramus, NJ-based Movado estimates that it will incur total charges of $9 million to $12 million under the plan. That is “in addition to the previously-disclosed corporate initiative costs of $7.2 million recorded in the first quarter of fiscal 2021.”

Between $8.5 million and $11 million of the newly announced charges relate to employee severance and benefits costs and stock-based compensation charges for separated individuals. Meanwhile, between $500,000 and $1 million represent costs to consolidate facilities.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
