Third Quarter 2012 Operating Segment Results

The Newell Consumer segment’s net sales for the third quarter were $814.6 million, a 2.1 percent decline compared with the prior year quarter. Core sales in the segment decreased 0.4 percent. Year-to-date core sales in this segment declined 1.2 percent. The improved performance versus first half results was driven by a strong performance from the Writing and Creative Expression global business unit during the Back-to-School season. This improvement was offset by a decline in the Décor and Culinary businesses largely related to a change in merchandising strategy at a significant retail customer. Normalized operating income in the Newell Consumer segment was $141.1 million, or 17.3 percent of sales, compared with $128.8 million, or 15.5 percent of sales, in the prior year. The operating margin improvement was driven by gross margin expansion and lower SG&A expense attributable to the deferral of brand building investments from the third quarter to the fourth quarter.
