Fiscal 2013 Fourth Quarter Consolidated Financial Results

Consolidated net sales of $1.14 billion for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 increased 36.6 percent compared to $832.6 million for the same period in fiscal 2012. The increase was predominantly the result of the HHI acquisition and, to a lesser degree, higher revenues in the Home and Garden segment. Including the full prior year’s fourth quarter results for HHI on a pro forma basis, net sales of $1.14 billion in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 increased 4.4 percent compared to $1.09 billion in the year-ago quarter.

Excluding HHI, net sales for legacy Spectrum Brands of $843.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 increased 1.4 percent versus $832.6 million in the prior-year quarter as a result of higher revenues in the Home and Garden segment. Excluding a negative foreign exchange impact of $5.7 million, legacy Spectrum Brands’ net sales in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 increased 2.0 percent.
