Spectrum Brands Holdings To Acquire Stanley Black & Decker’s Hardware & Home Improvement Group For $1.4 Billion In Cash

Mr. Lumley continued, “We remain committed to a strong balance sheet, including our long-term objective of achieving a total leverage ratio between 2.5 and 3.5 times. HHI’s strong operating margins and relatively low capital intensity are expected to generate significant free cash flow, helping us to repay debt and return to our current leverage ratio in approximately two years. We are also reaffirming plans to initiate a regular quarterly dividend of $0.25 per share in fiscal 2013, and will evaluate increasing the dividend in future years based on free cash flow growth.”

On a combined basis for the 12 months ended July 1, 2012, HHI would have accounted for 23 percent of Spectrum Brands’ total revenues and 28 percent of adjusted EBITDA.i On the same basis for Spectrum Brands’ three current segments, Global Batteries & Appliances would have accounted for 53 percent of revenues and 46 percent of adjusted EBITDA; Home & Garden would have accounted for 9 percent of revenues and 13 percent of adjusted EBITDA; and Pet Supplies would have accounted for 14 percent of revenues and 16 percent of adjusted EBITDA, in each case, excluding corporate/unallocated items from segment EBITDA.

Following the closing of the transaction, HHI will operate as a separate unit within Spectrum Brands and be managed by Greg Gluchowski, current President of the HHI Group at Stanley Black & Decker. He will report to Spectrum Brands CEO David Lumley and will continue to oversee a highly experienced HHI management team with a proven track record of innovation, operational excellence and profitable growth.

Mr. Lumley said, “We welcome Greg and his outstanding team from HHI. He is a proven leader, with a strong record of driving profitable growth and product innovation and development. We look forward to Greg and his team playing strong roles in the continued growth and success of Spectrum Brands.”
