Jeans giant Levi Strauss & Co expects to incur an additional $20-$25 million charge for expenses related to its major restructuring drive and also sees increased second half sales.

According to the company's latest report, the axing of several plants in the US and Scotland led to charges of $150.2m.

However, it now expects that sum to increase due to charges related to maintenance costs ahead of any sale or disposal of the axed plants.

Levi Strauss added current bookings and product orders are expected to boost sales in the remaining half of this year.
