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.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
