“During the third-quarter we made several strategic decisions to strengthen the company. We announced our acquisition of Evolution Robotics (ER), hired key senior leaders and began to implement significant actions in our D&S business. Our Home Robot unit has had an outstanding year and we expect continued growth in that business. The 2012 outlook for D&S has deteriorated and we expect further declines in 2013. To right-size the business we have restructured D&S and taken costs out. These moves will result in a fourth quarter 2012 restructuring charge of $4-5 million,” said Colin Angle, chairman and chief executive officer of iRobot. “We are taking these actions in order to invest in our high growth Home Robot business as well as our emerging high potential remote presence business, while meeting our commitment to profitable growth,” he added.
