Spectrum Brands Holdings to Expand World Headquarters in Middleton, Wisconsin

Building Addition to Accommodate Expected Continued Growth

MIDDLETON, Wis.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Spectrum Brands Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SPB), a global consumer products
company offering an expanding portfolio of leading brands providing
superior value to consumers and customers every day, announced plans
today to expand capacity at its world headquarters building in
Middleton, Wisconsin to accommodate expected continued growth over the
next several years.

The 30,000-square-foot addition at the south end of the four-story,
220,000-square-foot world headquarters at 3001 Deming Way in Middleton
is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2017 with groundbreaking
set for next month. The new positions are expected to be
multi-functional in administration, marketing and technology.

In October 2013, the Company moved into its more economical and
energy-efficient global headquarters building that also houses several
North American divisional operations, North American shared services and
an expanded, state-of-the-art technology center to accelerate new
product development for the global battery, personal care and home
appliances businesses. The Middleton facility was built to accommodate
as many as 675 positions, a capacity level nearly reached 2-1/2 years

“Since our origins 110 years ago as a battery manufacturer on Madison’s
east side, our Company has played a significant role as a major employer
in Dane County and other parts of Wisconsin,” said Andreas Rouvé, Chief
Executive Officer of Spectrum Brands Holdings. “We are pleased to
further increase our long history of investment in Wisconsin, which adds
to our nearly $100 million of direct economic impact on the state each

In addition to its world headquarters in Middleton, Spectrum Brands
maintains Wisconsin battery manufacturing plants in Fennimore, with 320
employees, and Portage, with 200 employees.

The building expansion will be developed and owned by the Livesey
Company, a family-owned, commercial real estate development company
based in Middleton that developed and owns the Spectrum Brands world
headquarters building.
