Item 2.02    Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On May 2, 2018, Pixelworks, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing financial results for the three month period ended March 31, 2018 and held a conference call to discuss the Company's financial results. The press release and conference call contain forward-looking statements regarding the Company, and include cautionary statements identifying important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated.

The press release issued May 2, 2018 is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1, to this Report and a copy of the Company's conference call script announcing these financial results is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.2. The information in this Item 2.02, including Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2, is being furnished and shall not be deemed filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or otherwise subject to the liability of that Section, nor shall such information be deemed to be incorporated by reference in any registration statement or other document filed under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Exchange Act, except as otherwise stated in such filing.

Item 2.05    Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activity.
On April 27, 2018, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the Company committed to a restructuring plan to make the operation of the Company more efficient which would result in an approximately 5% reduction in workforce, primarily in the areas of development, marketing and administration. The Board believes adoption of this restructuring plan will help streamline the Company’s operations and workforce, and more appropriately align the Company’s operating expenses with current revenue levels. The Company expects the restructuring to be substantially completed by the end of the third quarter ending September 30, 2018 and expects to incur total estimated restructuring charges of approximately $1.1 million related to employee severance and benefits and approximately $0.9 million related to closing the Hong Kong office and reducing the size of the Toronto office. The Company currently expects that these charges will largely be recorded in the second and third quarters of 2018 and will result in cash expenditures of approximately $2 million over the next four years.
As a result of the restructuring, the Company expects to realize annualized savings of approximately $2.0 million.
