Spectrum Brands Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SPB), a global consumer products company
with market-leading brands, announced today that it plans to hold its 2014
Annual Meeting of Stockholders on Tuesday, January 28, 2014. Stockholders of
record as of the close of business on December 16, 2013 are eligible to vote
at the meeting.

The 2014 annual meeting date is more than 30 days prior to the anniversary of
the Company’s 2013 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, which was held on March 1,
2013. As a result, stockholders are advised that the October 3, 2013 deadline
continues to apply for any stockholder proposal to be considered for inclusion
in the Company’s proxy statement for the 2014 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.
This determination is pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Securities and Exchange
Act of 1934, as amended, and as set forth under the caption “Stockholder
Proposals for 2014 Annual Meeting” in the Company’s proxy statement for its
2013 Annual Meeting of Stockholders filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission on January 22, 2013.

For any stockholder proposal not intended to be subject to Rule 14a-8, and
thus not subject to inclusion in Spectrum Brands’ proxy statement, but to be
considered timely under Spectrum Brands’ by-laws, written notice of any such
stockholder proposal must be given to the Secretary of the Company at Spectrum
Brands’ principal executive offices no later than December 30, 2013. Any
notice provided by a stockholder must contain certain information as specified
