Restructuring Charges [Abstract]  
Restructuring Charges
The Company has in recent years undertaken a number of cost reduction activities, including workforce reductions, in an effort to lower its ongoing expense run rate. The program in the United States is accounted for in accordance with the authoritative guidance related to compensation for non-retirement post-employment benefits, whereas the programs in the Company’s international locations are accounted for in accordance with the authoritative guidance for contingencies.
In April 2015, we announced a plan to reduce our global employee workforce to streamline our organization and business processes in response to changing customer requirement in our industry. The goals of this reduction are to enable continued innovation, direct our resources toward our best opportunities and lower our ongoing expense run rate. During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2015, we recorded a $31.6 million net restructuring charge, of which $8.0 million was recorded to costs of revenues, $11.1 million to engineering, research and development expense and $12.5 million to selling, general and administrative expense. Net restructuring charge amounting to $22.4 million was recorded during the fourth quarter of fiscal year ended June 30, 2015, substantial majority of which is related to our global workforce reduction plan.
The following table shows the activity primarily related to accrual for severance and benefits for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2015 and 2014:

The accrual for severance and benefits as of June 30, 2015 is expected to be paid out by the end of our fiscal quarter ending December 31, 2015.
The Company expects to incur additional charges, including additional severance costs and other related costs, in connection with the completion of its global workforce reduction during the first two quarters of fiscal year 2016.
