The corrected release reads:


PUR Water Filtration, marketed by KAZ USA, Inc., a division of Helen of Troy®,
announced today that it is placing the company’s creative advertising account
under review.

“We initiated this review to ensure the PUR brand has the best possible
resources, partners and practices in place to achieve our business goals in
the water filtration category,” said Christophe Coudray, CMO. “We want
consumers to have a compelling, memorable understanding of PUR’s superior
water filtration solutions.”

PUR’s media agency, Mediavest, is unaffected by this search. TBWA\Chiat\Day is
the incumbent agency and will not be participating in the review.

PUR has retained Roth Associates to consult regarding the search for its new
creative partner. All agency inquiries should be directed to Roth Associates
at 212-861-9420 (NY) or 310-896-8275 (LA). PUR is not accepting any direct
inquiries for this search.

Helen of Troy® acquired the PUR brand from Procter & Gamble in December, 2011.
