Analogic Corporation Announces Restructuring to Align Business with Current Market Conditions
PEABODY, Mass., Jan 28, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Analogic Corporation (NASDAQ: ALOG), a leading provider of medical imaging and aviation security technology, announced today that it will reduce its workforce by approximately 140 positions or 9% worldwide as global economic conditions continue to put pressure on healthcare capital equipment markets. This reduction in force along with other cost reduction initiatives will result in the company avoiding costs of approximately $9.6 million on an annual basis. The company expects to take a restructuring charge of $3.4 million during the second fiscal quarter.

Jim Green, President and CEO, commented, "Today's economic conditions require Analogic to align its cost structure to existing market conditions. However, we remain committed to our core markets in medical imaging and aviation security and will continue investing in technologies that position Analogic for profitable growth."
