|Severance and Other Restructuring Costs||
During the six months ended July 31, 2017, we incurred restructuring charges of $2.5 million primarily from employee-related benefits for terminated employees and costs to close facilities.
The following table shows the activity in accrued restructuring reported as a component of other accrued expenses on the consolidated balance sheet as of July 31, 2017 (amounts in thousands):
During the third quarter of fiscal 2017, we implemented a restructuring program (“Restructuring Plan”) with the purpose of reducing costs and assisting in restoring SeaChange to profitability and positive cash flow. The total estimated restructuring costs associated with the Restructuring Plan are anticipated to be approximately $7.5 million and will be recorded in severance and other restructuring costs in our consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss as they are incurred. We recorded $2.4 million of restructuring expense in connection with this plan during the six months ended July 31, 2017, which was primarily made up of employee-related costs. Since its implementation, we have recognized $5.5 million in restructuring charges related to the Restructuring Plan and we expect to incur any remaining charges by the end of fiscal 2018. Any changes to the estimate of executing the Restructuring Plan will be reflected in our future results of operations.
During the second quarter of fiscal 2017, we restructured our operations in connection with the acquisition of DCC Labs. This restructuring resulted in a workforce reduction within our In-Home engineering and services organization and in the closing of our facility in Portland, Oregon and a substantial reduction to our facility in Milpitas, California. We recorded $0.1 million of restructuring expense in connection with this action during the six months ended July 31, 2017, which was primarily made up of facility and other costs not related to employees. We incurred charges totaling $2.0 million in severance and other restructuring costs from the second quarter of fiscal 2017 through the second quarter of fiscal 2018 related to the acquisition. Once we complete our integration plan, any further reduction in workforce may result in additional restructuring charges.
