Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal

The Company now estimates that it will incur costs and charges in the range of approximately $265 to $315 million related to the business transformation, consisting primarily of the following types of items:

$13 to $17 million for employee severance and other employee-related costs,

$220 to $258 million charge for asset write-downs, and

$32 to $40 million for professional services, legal and other associated costs.

The Company expects to incur most of these costs and charges in 2015 and 2016, and approximately $45 to $57 million are expected to be cash expenditures with the remaining expected to be non-cash charges associated with asset write-downs. In addition to the costs and charges incurred above, the Company expects to make cash payments in the range of approximat ely $34 to $44 million for employee severance that will not have a material impact on its Statement of Operations due to Teradata accounting for its postemployment benefits under Accounting Standards Codification 712, Compensation - Nonretirement Postemployment Benefits, which uses actuarial estimates and defers the immediate recognition of gains or losses. The Company continues to expect these actions related to the business transformation will be completed during 2016 and 2017.
