Item 8.01. Other Events.

Spectrum Brands Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) is filing this Current Report on Form 8-K (this “Report”) to recast its audited consolidated financial statements that were initially filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on December 14, 2010, in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2010 (the “2010 10-K”) to reflect the realignment of its reporting segment structure.

This Report updates the financial periods presented in Item 1 in Part I, Items 6, 7, 7A and 8 in Part II and Item 15 in Part IV of the 2010 10-K to reflect the Company’s current reporting segment structure. In order to preserve the nature and character of the disclosures set forth in such items as originally filed in the 2010 10-K, no attempt has been made in this Report, and it should not be read, to modify or update disclosures as presented in the 2010 10-K to reflect events or occurrences after December 14, 2010, the date of the filing of the 2010 10-K, except for material matters relating specifically to the recasting of the presentations described above. Therefore, this Report should be read in conjunction with the portions of the 2010 10-K that have not been recast herein and in conjunction with the Company’s filings made with the SEC subsequent to the filing of the 2010 10-K. This Report does not restate the 2010 10-K.

Change in Reporting Segments

Effective October 1, 2010, the Company’s chief operating decision-maker decided to manage the business in three vertically integrated, product-focused reporting segments:

 

   

Global Batteries & Appliances, which consists of the Company’s worldwide battery, electric shaving and grooming, electric personal care, portable lighting business and small appliances primarily in the kitchen and home product categories (“Global Batteries & Appliances”);

 

   

Global Pet Supplies, which consists of the Company’s worldwide pet supplies business (“Global Pet Supplies”); and

 

   

the Home and Garden Business, which consists of the Company’s home and garden and insect control businesses (the “Home and Garden Business”).

This new reporting segment structure reflects the combination of the former Global Batteries & Personal Care segment, which consisted of the Company’s worldwide battery, electric shaving and grooming, electric personal care and portable lighting business, with substantially all of the former Small Appliances segment, which consisted of the businesses of Russell Hobbs, Inc. acquired on June 16, 2010 (“Small Appliances”), to form Global Batteries & Appliances. In addition, certain pest control and pet products included in the former Small Appliances segment have been reclassified into the Home and Garden Business and Global Pet Supplies segments, respectively.
