Section 2 – Financial Information

Item 2.05                                             Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.

On January 12, 2007, the Board of Directors of SPACEHAB, Incorporated (the “Company”) approved a plan to reduce staffing and restructure corporate functions to streamline operations, improve efficiency and reduce overhead.  The plan calls for reduction of 36 positions, including 8 corporate administrative positions, as the Company’s activities in support of NASA’s space shuttle program moves toward the completion of the last contracted mission in June 2007.  The Company expects that the restructuring will be completed by Wednesday, January 17, 2007.

The Company anticipates that these actions, when fully implemented, will result in annualized cost savings of $3.9 million.  These cost reductions include a workforce reduction of an approximately 16%  spread between the Company’s Houston, Texas headquarters and Cape Canaveral, Florida payload processing facility.  SPACEHAB’s Astrotech spacecraft processing facilities in Titusville, Florida, Vandenberg Air Force Base, California and Long Beach, California are unaffected by the restructuring.  This restructuring is not expected to result in the closing on any of the Company’s facilities.

The restructuring activities constitute an exit or disposal plan activity under FASB Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 146, Accounting for Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities, which will result in material charges under accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S.  The restructuring costs consist of a cash outlay of $450,000 of which $300,000 will be recognized as an expense relating to severance benefits.

A copy of the Company’s press release dated January 18, 2007, announcing the staff reduction is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.
