ITEM 2.05 Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.
Because future volume commitments were insufficient to support the cost bases, on October 29, 2007, Stoneridge Inc.’s (the “Company”) Board of Directors approved restructuring initiatives to improve the Company’s manufacturing efficiency and cost position by ceasing manufacturing operations at its Sarasota, Florida and Mitcheldean, England locations. The Company will begin these initiatives in the fourth quarter of 2007 and expects to be substantially complete by December 31, 2008. The Company anticipates recognizing both total pre-tax costs and incurring cash expenditures of approximately $17.4 million or less associated with these restructuring initiatives. These expected restructuring related costs are comprised of one-time termination benefits of $5.2 million, contract termination costs of $1.0 million and other associated costs of $11.2 million. Related 2007 fourth quarter expenses, primarily comprised of one-time termination benefits, are expected to result in pre-tax charges of $1.0 million. As part of these restructuring initiatives, the Company also intends to sell an owned facility.



Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
