Item 2.02 RESULTS OF OPERATIONS AND FINANCIAL CONDITION

On November 7, 2017, Haemonetics Corporation (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing financial results for the second quarter ended September 30, 2017. A copy of the release is furnished with this report as exhibit 99.1.

The foregoing information, including the exhibit attached hereto, shall not be deemed “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Exchange Act, regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing.

Item 2.05 COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH EXIT OR DISPOSAL ACTIVITIES

On November 1, 2017, the Company’s Board of Directors approved the Complexity Reduction Initiative, a company-wide restructuring program designed to improve operational performance and reduce cost, freeing up resources to invest in accelerated growth. This program includes a reduction of headcount and operating costs which will enable a more streamlined organizational structure. We expect to incur aggregate charges between $50 million and $60 million associated with these actions, of which we expect $35 million to $40 million will consist of severance and other employee costs and the remainder will consist of other exit costs, primarily related to third party services. These charges, substantially all of which will result in cash outlays, will be incurred as the specific actions required to execute on these initiatives are identified and approved and are expected to continue through fiscal 2020. We expect savings from this program of approximately $80 million on an annualized basis once the program is completed.

The amounts and timing of estimated costs and savings are subject to change until finalized. The actual amounts and timing may vary materially based on various factors.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements about the Complexity Reduction Initiative. These statements are based on our current expectations and estimates as to prospective events and circumstances about which we can give no firm assurance. Further, any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which such statement is made, and we undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date on which such statement is made. As it is not possible to predict every new factor that may emerge, forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as a prediction of our actual future financial condition or results.

These forward-looking statements, like any forward-looking statements, involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected or anticipated. Factors that may influence or contribute to the inaccuracy of the forward-looking statements or cause actual results to differ materially from expected or desired results may include, without limitation, whether the Company will be able to implement the Complexity Reduction Initiative as planned, whether the expected amount of the costs associated with the Complexity Reduction Initiative will exceed the Company's forecasts, and whether the Company will be able to realize the full amount of estimated savings from the Complexity Reduction Initiative. Investors should consult the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (including the Company’s reports on Form 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K) for information about additional risks and uncertainties that could cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially from these forward-looking statements.
