We look forward to delivering a strong 2014, while also focusing on making the investments to achieve our long-term goals. I would like to take the opportunity to  recognize the over 140 athletes from 25 different countries who are using Jarden brands, including K2®, Madshus®, Marker®, Marmot® and Völkl®, on their remarkable achievement in representing their countries at the Sochi Winter Olympics."

James E. Lillie, Chief Executive Officer commented, "2013 marks a year of record revenues, record segment earnings, record operating cash flow, and record adjusted earnings per share. We delivered organic growth across all of our business segments for the fourth quarter as well as in each of the quarters throughout 2013, reflecting broad based portfolio strength and disciplined execution. Among the highlights of Jarden's performance in 2013 was the growth in our Crock-Pot®, FoodSaver® and Oster® brands within Jarden Consumer Solutions, as well as the performance of our Ball® and First Alert® brands within Jarden Branded Consumables. We are excited about the outlook for 2014 and beyond given the core momentum in our business and the strength of our team."

All earnings per share and shares outstanding amounts have been adjusted to reflect the effect of the 3-for-2 split of the Company's outstanding shares of common stock that occurred during the first quarter of 2013.

Please see the schedule accompanying this release for a reconciliation of non-GAAP organic net sales growth, adjusted gross margins, segment earnings, adjusted net income and adjusted basic and diluted earnings per share to the comparable GAAP measures.

Note 2:  All earnings per share and shares outstanding amounts have been adjusted to reflect the effect of the 3-for-2 split of the Company's outstanding shares of common stock that occurred during the first quarter of 2013.

 

Note 3:  Organic net sales growth is a non-GAAP measure of net sales growth excluding the impacts of foreign exchange, certain acquisitions and exited business from year-over-year comparisons.  The Company believes this measure provides investors with a more complete understanding of the underlying sales trends by providing net sales on a consistent basis.  Organic net sales growth is also one of the measures used by management to analyze operating performance.  The following table provides a reconciliation of organic net sales growth to the comparable GAAP measure of net sales growth for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013:

Note 4: This earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures that may not be directly comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. For purposes of Regulation G, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's historical or future financial performance, financial position or cash flows that excludes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding amounts, that are included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statements of operations, balance sheets, or statements of cash flows of the Company; or includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of including amounts, that are excluded from the most directly comparable measure so calculated and presented. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the Company has provided reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP measures are provided because management of the Company uses these financial measures in monitoring and evaluating the Company's ongoing financial results and trends.  Management uses this non-GAAP information as an indicator of business performance, and evaluates overall management with respect to such indicators.  Additionally, the Company uses non-GAAP financial measures because the Company's credit agreement provides for certain adjustments in calculations used for determining whether the Company is in compliance with certain credit agreement covenants, including, but not limited to, adjustments relating to non-cash purchase accounting adjustments, non-cash impairment charges of goodwill, intangibles and other assets, certain net reorganization costs and acquisition-related and other charges, transaction and integration costs, the elimination of manufacturer's profit in inventory, non-cash Venezuela hyperinflationary and devaluation-related charges, gains and losses as a result of currency fluctuations, gain (loss) on the sale of certain assets, non-cash stock-based compensation costs, loss on early extinguishment of debt, non-cash original issue discount amortization and other items. Adjusted gross margin is calculated by dividing adjusted gross profit by net sales.  Segment earnings (As Adjusted EBITDA) margin is calculated by dividing segment earnings (As Adjusted EBITDA) by net sales.  Adjusted SG&A margin is calculated by dividing adjusted SG&A by net sales.  Adjusted net interest expense is calculated by deducting original issue discount amortization from net interest expense.  Adjusted income tax provision is calculated by adding the income tax provision adjustment, which reflects the normalization of the adjusted results to the Company's estimated effective tax rate, to the income tax provision.  These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
