2016 Restructuring Program
In the second quarter of 2016, our management approved and commenced the 2016 Restructuring Program to accelerate our transformation from a PC company to one that powers the cloud and billions of smart, connected computing devices. Under this program, we are in the process of closing certain facilities and reducing headcount globally to align our operations with evolving business needs by investing in our growth businesses and improving efficiencies. We expect these actions to be substantially completed by the second quarter of 2017.
Restructuring and other charges by type for the 2016 Restructuring Program for the period were as follows:
Restructuring and other activity for the 2016 Restructuring Program for the first nine months of 2016 was as follows:
We recorded the accruals as restructuring and other charges in the consolidated condensed statement of income and within the "all other" operating segments category. Substantially all of the accrued restructuring balance as of October 1, 2016 is expected to be paid within the next 12 months and was recorded as a current liability within accrued compensation and benefits on the consolidated condensed balance sheets. The remaining accruals were recorded as an increase to our pension liability and are not included in our accrued restructuring balance.
Restructuring actions related to this program that were approved in 2016 impacted approximately 15,000 employees. These reductions are in conjunction with our effort to re-balance our workforce to align to strategically important areas in the data center, Internet of Things, and memory businesses.
2013 and 2015 Restructuring Programs
As of October 1, 2016, the remaining liability associated with both programs is $17 million ($70 million as of December 26, 2015). For more information about these programs, see the "Restructuring and Asset Impairment Charges" note in Part II, Item 8 of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 26, 2015.
