Spectrum Brands Holdings Reports Record Fiscal 2013 Results, Meets Or Exceeds Full Year Financial Guidance

As a result of solid earnings and strong working capital management, the Company generated record annual free cash flow in fiscal 2013 of approximately $254 million, surpassing its goal of at least $240 million and its fiscal 2012 free cash flow of $208 million.

The Company made in excess of $200 million of payments on its term debt during fiscal 2013. This resulted in leverage (total debt to pro forma adjusted EBITDA) of approximately 4.8 times at the end of fiscal 2013. Excluding incremental debt incurred related to the refinancing of the 9.5% senior secured notes in the fourth quarter, leverage would have been approximately 4.5 times, consistent with previous guidance.

Fiscal 2014 Outlook

Spectrum Brands expects fiscal 2014 net sales, as reported and at current foreign exchange rates, to increase at or above the rate of GDP compared to fiscal 2013 net sales, including HHI in the prior year period on a pro forma basis. Fiscal 2014 free cash flow is expected to be at least $350 million and capital expenditures are projected to be approximately $70 million to $75 million. The Company expects to reduce term debt by at least $250 million in fiscal 2014.
