Business software company CA Inc. is cutting 1,000 jobs and is closing an unspecified number of facilities as part of a restructuring plan to reduce costs and become more efficient.

The job cuts represent about 8 percent of its work force.

The Islandia, N.Y., company also says full-year earnings will come in at the lower end of the range it had previously given.

Its shares fell 4 percent to $22.90 in premarket trading.

The company said in a filing Tuesday with the Securities and Exchange Commission that it expects to incur a $50 million pre-tax charge as a result of the cuts, with $47 million for severance payments and the rest related to facility closings.
