Explanation of Responses:
1. Reflects the weighted average price of 26,084 shares of Common Stock of the Issuer sold by Mr. Genito in multiple transactions on August 18, 2014 at prices ranging from $87.00 to $87.59 per share. Mr. Genito undertakes to provide upon request by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission staff, the Issuer, or a security holder of the Issuer, full information regarding the number of shares sold at each separate price within the ranges set forth in this footnote.
2. Each performance right represents a contingent right to receive one share of the Issuer's common stock.
3. Under the Spectrum Brands Holdings, Inc. 2014 Equity Incentive Plan ("2014 EIP"), Mr. Genito was awarded 35,421 performance rights at 100% of performance targets. Up to 50% of such performance rights will vest within 74 days of the Issuer meeting certain adjusted EBITDA and consolidated cash flow performance targets for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2014 (the "2014 EIP Performance Vesting Date") (such amount, the "2014 EIP Performance Award"). In addition, an amount equal to the 2014 EIP Performance Award will vest on the first anniversary of the 2014 EIP Performance Vesting Date (such date, the "2014 EIP Service Vesting Date"), if Mr. Genito remains employed by the Issuer on such first anniversary (such amount, the "2014 EIP Service Award").
4. Mr. Genito shall also be eligible to receive up to 17,710 additional shares (the "2014 EIP Additional Award") if the Issuer meets certain adjusted EBITDA and consolidated cash flow performance targets in excess of 100% of the targets for the 2014 EIP Performance Award, for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2014. The 2014 EIP Additional Award will vest on the 2014 EIP Service Vesting Date if Mr. Genito remains employed by the Issuer as of such date. The 2014 EIP Performance Award, the 2014 EIP Service Award and the 2014 EIP Additional Award together constitute the 2014 EIP Award. The amount reported of 53,131 represents the maximum number of performance rights that may vest if 150% of the applicable performance targets are achieved. If 100% of the applicable performance targets are achieved, then 35,421 performance rights will vest upon full vesting of the 2014 EIP Performance Award and the 2014 EIP Service Award.
5. 50% of the performance rights granted on December 7, 2012 under the Spectrum Brands Holdings, Inc. 2013 Equity Incentive Plan vested on November 25, 2013 (the "2013 EIP Performance Vesting Date") and such performance rights settled for 27,777 shares of the Issuer's common stock ("2013 EIP Performance Award"). In addition, an amount equal to the 2013 EIP Performance Award will vest if Mr. Genito is employed by the Issuer through the first anniversary of the 2013 EIP Performance Vesting Date ("2013 EIP Service Award"). The 2013 EIP Performance Award and the 2013 EIP Service Award together constitute the 2013 EIP Award.
