In the third quarter of 2014 our manufacturing facility in Mundelein, Illinois was listed for sale and adjusted to fair market value less cost to sell. During the fourth quarter of 2013 we began transitioning the manufacturing operations from the Mundelein facility to our facilities in Seattle, Washington and British Columbia, Canada as well as outsourcing some of the operations in preparation for this sale. This effort is part of Natus’ continuing cost reduction and restructuring activities.
