PR Newswire

RYE, N.Y., March 14, 2013

RYE, N.Y., March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Jarden Corporation (NYSE: JAH) (the
"Company") announced today that it has commenced a cash tender offer (the
"Tender Offer") for any and all of its $300 million outstanding principal
amount of 8% Senior Notes due 2016 (the "Notes") and the solicitation of
consents from the holders (the "Holders") to adopt certain amendments to the
indenture (the "Indenture") governing the Notes (the "Consent Solicitation").

The Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation are scheduled to expire at 11:59
p.m., Eastern Time, on April 11, 2013 (the "Expiration Time"), unless extended
or earlier terminated. Holders who validly tender their Notes and deliver
their consents to the Tender Agent (as identified below) (and do not validly
withdraw their Notes or revoke their consents) by 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time on
March 27, 2013 (the "Early Tender Deadline"), unless extended or earlier
terminated, will receive $1,046.75 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes (the
"Total Consideration"), if such Notes are accepted for purchase, which
includes an early tender payment of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of
Notes. The date of such payment is expected to be on March 28, 2013.

Holders who validly tender their Notes and deliver their consents after the
Early Tender Deadline but by the Expiration Time will receive $1,016.75 per
$1,000 principal amount of Notes (the "Offer Consideration"), if such Notes
are accepted for purchase. Final settlement of the Tender Offer will occur
promptly after expiration of the Tender Offer and is expected to be on April
12, 2013.

Holders whose tendered Notes are accepted for purchase will also receive
accrued and unpaid interest from, and including, the most recent interest
payment date for the Notes to, but not including, the applicable payment date
for the Notes in the Tender Offer.

The Tender Offer is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain
conditions, including general conditions and a financing condition of the
Company's incurrence of an additional $250 million in term loans under the
Company's senior credit facility. The consents are being solicited to
eliminate substantially all of the restrictive covenants and related events of
default contained in the Indenture. If the proposed amendments become
operative, a notice of redemption to Holders whose Notes are to be redeemed
will be permitted to be provided not less than 15 days before a redemption
date instead of not less than 30 days before a redemption date as currently
required under the Indenture. Holders may not tender their Notes pursuant to
the Tender Offer without delivering consents or deliver consents without
tendering their Notes.

Holders may withdraw tenders and revoke consents at any time prior 5:00 p.m.,
Eastern Time on March 27, 2013 (the "Withdrawal Deadline") unless extended by
the Company.

If less than all of the Notes are tendered and accepted for purchase pursuant
to the Tender Offer, the Company intends to redeem the remaining outstanding
Notes upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Indenture; however, the
Company is not obligated to do so.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or purchase, or a
solicitation of an offer to sell or purchase, or the solicitation of tenders
with respect to, the Notes. No offer, solicitation, purchase or sale will be
made in any jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation, or sale would
be unlawful. The Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation are being made
solely pursuant to the Offer to Purchase and the related Consent and Letter of
Transmittal made available to holders of the Notes.

The complete terms and conditions of the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation
are described in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement
dated March 14, 2013 (the "Offer to Purchase") and the related Consent and
Letter of Transmittal, copies of which may be obtained from D.F. King & Co.,
Inc., the Tender Agent and Information Agent for the Tender Offer, at (800)

has retained Barclays Capital Inc. as lead dealer manager and Credit Suisse

connection with the Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation. Questions
regarding the terms of the Tender Offer and the Consent Solicitation may be
