Sun Chief Financial Officer Steve McGowan announced the layoffs during a Tuesday afternoon conference call on the company's fourth-quarter fiscal results. Sun took $44 million of the $100 million layoff charge in its fourth quarter and expects to account for the remaining $56 million "over the course of the next four quarters," McGowan said on the call.
