Item 2.05. Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.

On June 22, 2015, the Board of Directors of Civitas Solutions, Inc. (the “Company”) approved a plan to discontinue at-risk youth (“ARY”) services in the states of Florida, Louisiana, Indiana, North Carolina and Texas. The decision was the result of a six-month strategic review of the Company’s 13-state platform of ARY services. Where it is currently doing so, the Company will continue to provide services in these states for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and those recovering from brain injuries without interruption. Management has a target date of September 30, 2015 to transition each child or adolescent served into the program of another provider, but is committed to work with its public partners to ensure that the transition is completed safely and with minimal disruption.

The Company estimates it will incur charges in connection with the program closures of up to $15.3 million, consisting of severance costs of up to $1.9 million, lease termination costs of up to $4.8 million and non-cash charges associated with the write-down of intangibles of approximately $8.6 million. The Company estimates that up to $6.7 million of these charges will be incurred as future cash expenditures. The actual closure costs could ultimately be less, depending on whether another provider or providers elect to purchase all or some of the programs, the new providers’ demand for Civitas staff and office space, and other factors.

A copy of the press release announcing the discontinuation of ARY services in the states of Florida, Louisiana, Indiana, North Carolina and Texas is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.


Item 2.06. Material Impairments.

As described in Item 2.05 above, which is incorporated into this Item 2.06 by reference, the Company estimates that it will incur a non-cash asset impairment charge of approximately $8.6 million as a result of the write-down of intangible assets related to agency relationships, licenses and permits and tradenames.


Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.
