Extreme Networks to cut jobs as part of biz restructuring

Extreme Networks is set to eliminate jobs globally as part of a major restructuring.

The company did not reveal the number of jobs which will be reduced as part of the cost cutting program.

As per the new strategy, Extreme Networks will be implementing its new solutions-based go-to-market strategy.

“As a first step to implementing the new operating plan, the company has begun to restructure its global workforce and implement other operating cost reductions. The company expects to incur a restructuring charge of $13-15 million for employee related termination benefits,” said Extreme Networks.

These actions are expected to yield approximately $40 million in reduction to operating costs in fiscal 2016, said Extreme Networks.
