Spectrum Brands Holdings Completes Acquisition Of Stanley Black & Decker’s Hardware & Home Improvement Group

HHI generated net sales of approximately $985 million and adjusted EBITDA of $188 million for the 12 months ended June 30, 2012. 1 Approximately 85 percent of HHI’s annual revenues are generated in North America, with more than 40 percent coming through U.S. home improvement centers.

The HHI acquisition is expected to increase Spectrum Brands’ top-line growth and margins, and to be immediately accretive to EPS, EBITDA and free cash flow before synergies. EPS accretion pro forma for a full year of results is expected to be between $0.75 to $0.80 per share in fiscal 2013 and EPS accretion in fiscal 2014 is expected to exceed $1.00 per share, excluding one-time transaction and integration costs and including synergies. The acquisition also is expected to add more than an incremental $90 million of free cash flow in the first two years after closing.

The acquisition of HHI also includes certain assets of Tong Lung Metal Industry Co. Ltd. (“Tong Lung”), a Taiwanese manufacturer of residential and commercial locksets with facilities in Taiwan and the Philippines. The Tong Lung manufacturing assets will provide expanded sales platform capabilities, allowing for accelerated expansion in international markets. The acquisition of the Tong Lung assets is expected to occur during Spectrum Brands’ second quarter of fiscal 2013 ending March 31, 2013. $100 million of the $1.4 billion cash purchase price, which was adjusted for net debt and working capital, has been held in escrow until the subsequent closing of the Tong Lung portion of the HHI acquisition.

HHI will operate as a separate reporting segment within Spectrum Brands and be managed by Greg Gluchowski, President of HHI. He reports to Spectrum Brands CEO David Lumley and continues to oversee a highly experienced HHI management team with an average of 20-plus years of experience and a proven track record of innovation, operational excellence and profitable growth.
