Harbinger Group Inc. Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2013 Results

In December 2012, Spectrum Brands issued $520.0 million aggregate principal amount of 6.375% Senior Notes due 2020 and $570.0 million aggregate principal amount of 6.625% Senior Notes due 2022. The proceeds from the offerings were used to fund a portion of the HHI acquisition. Spectrum Brands financed the remaining portion of the HHI acquisition with a new $800.0 million term loan facility. A portion of the term loan proceeds were also used to extinguish the former term loan facility, which had an aggregate amount outstanding of $370.2 million prior to extinguishment.

For more information on HGI's Consumer Products segment, interested parties should read Spectrum Brands' announcements and public filings, including Spectrum Brands' first quarter earnings announcement, by reviewing Spectrum Brands' filings with the Securities & Exchange Commission at www.sec.gov.

Insurance and Financial Services:

First quarter Fiscal 2013 insurance total product sales were $254.9 million compared to $372.5 million in the first quarter of Fiscal 2012. The decrease reflects product and pricing changes made by FGL to the core fixed index annuity portfolio to maintain target profitability. Due to these product revisions during calendar year 2012, fixed indexed annuities (“FIA”) product sales declined 29% to $243.1 million compared to the first quarter of Fiscal 2012. Total product sales increased 69% in the twelve months ended on December 30, 2012 to $1.6 billion compared to $929.3 million for the twelve months prior to the end of first quarter of Fiscal 2012. FGL continues to maintain its position in the top-ten industry ranking for FIA sales with total FIA sales in the last twelve months of more than $1.5 billion compared with $781.1 million for the twelve months prior to the end of first quarter Fiscal 2012, driven by the success of FGL's flagship product Prosperity Elite SM.

FGL has approximately $17.7 billion of cash and invested assets under management as of December 30, 2012, compared to $17.8 billion as of September 30, 2012. Estimated risk-based capital (RBC) ratio at December 30, 2012 remained well in excess of 350%.
