"In addition to the strong performance of the business so far this year, we acted opportunistically to strengthen our long-term capital position by completing a convertible note offering in September.  The strong demand for the offering and its successful execution allowed Jarden to take advantage of positive market conditions to strengthen our balance sheet and ensure that we have cash readily available to pay down more expensive debt, or to take advantage of value creating opportunities that may arise in the future," said Martin E. Franklin, Executive Chairman. "As we continue to invest in our targeted growth initiatives, a number of these plans revolve around growing international sales. While the tuck-in acquisitions we completed during the third quarter are not meaningful from a financial perspective, they provide strong international operating platforms to support long-term growth in these markets."

James E. Lillie, Chief Executive Officer commented, "I am pleased with our performance in both the quarter and year to date. Our diversified business model allowed us to deliver strong earnings and cash flow in the quarter. We achieved this performance despite the well known topline challenges we forecasted stemming from the warm winter of 2011-12. Notwithstanding the year over year weather related revenue impact, we are pleased that our strong gross margin performance also led to expanded segment earnings margins, and we remain on track to exceed last year's strong cash flow performance in 2012. We expect that the healthy momentum across each of our business segments should result in continued strength in fiscal 2013, with growth in line with our stated long-term objectives."

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