NetApp committed to a restructuring and reduction in workforce as a part of its planned transformation efforts to streamline its core business and reduce operating expenses.

In connection with these actions, the company expects to reduce its worldwide headcount by approximately 6%.

The company expects to incur aggregate charges of approximately $50 to $60 million for employee terminations and other costs associated with the restructuring.
