ENERGIZER HOLDINGS, INC.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED (CONDENSED) FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
December 31, 2016
(In millions, except per share data - Unaudited)

(1) Description of Business and Basis of Presentation
Description of Business - Energizer Holdings, Inc., including its subsidiaries, (Energizer or the Company) is a global manufacturer, marketer and distributer of household batteries, specialty batteries and portable lights under the Energizer® and Eveready® brand names. Energizer offers batteries using lithium, alkaline, carbon zinc, nickel metal hydride, zinc air and silver oxide constructions. On July 1, 2016, Energizer expanded its portfolio of brands with the acquisition of HandStands Holding Corporation (the auto care acquisition), a leading designer and marketer of automotive fragrance and appearance products. With the auto care acquisition, the Company's brands now include Refresh Your Car!®, California Scents®, Driven®, Bahama & Co.®, LEXOL® and Eagle One®.

Basis of Presentation - The accompanying unaudited Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements include the accounts of Energizer and its subsidiaries. All significant intercompany transactions are eliminated. Energizer has no material equity method investments, variable interests or non-controlling interests.

The accompanying unaudited Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with Article 10 of Regulation S-X and do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. The year-end condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet was derived from the audited financial statements included in Energizer's Report on Form 10-K, but does not include all disclosures required by U.S. GAAP. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Certain reclassifications have been made to the prior year financial statements to conform to the current presentation. Operating results for any quarter are not necessarily indicative of the results for any other quarter or for the full year. These statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto for Energizer for the year ended September 30, 2016 included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K dated November 15, 2016.

The auto care acquisition occurred during the fourth fiscal quarter of 2016 and the purchase price allocation was finalized as of September 30, 2016. The quarter ended December 31, 2015 does not include any activity from the auto care acquisition. The quarter ended December 31, 2016 includes revenues of $27.8 and earnings before income taxes of $4.2 related to the auto care acquisition.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements - During the quarter ended December 31, 2016, the Company early adopted FASB ASU 2016-09, Compensation - Stock Compensation. ASU 2016-09 simplifies the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences and classifications on the statement of cash flows. The provisions in ASU 2016-09 resulted in the following impacts upon adoption:

Excess tax benefits created upon the vesting of restricted stock equivalent awards (RSEA) are now recorded as a discrete item within the income tax provision. These amounts were previously recorded as an adjustment to Additional paid in capital. During the quarter ended December 31, 2016, $1.4 was recorded as a discrete benefit in our income tax provision. This ASU provision was applied on a modified retrospective basis; however no cumulative effect adjustment was necessary to retained earnings.
Excess tax benefits are now required to be classified with other income tax cash flows as a Cash Flow from Operating Activities. This was previously reported as a Cash Flow from Financing Activity. The $1.4 excess tax benefit for the current quarter is reflected within the Changes in current assets and liabilities used in operations line. The Company has applied this provision prospectively and the comparable prior year amount of $0.8 is reflected in Cash Flow from Financing Activities.
Cash paid by an employer when directly withholding shares for tax withholding purposes should be classified as a Cash Flow from Financing Activities. For the quarter ended December 31, 2016, the Company has reported $8.1 for Taxes paid for withheld share payments as a Cash Flow used by Financing Activity. For the quarter ended December 31, 2015, this payment of $3.9 was included as a Cash Flow used by Operating Activity. The prior year balance has been retrospectively adjusted and this amount is now classified as a Cash Flow used by Financing Activities in the comparable period.

6



No other provisions of this guidance had an impact on the financial statements.
During the quarter ended December 31, 2016, the Company adopted ASU 2015-05, Intangibles Goodwill and other internal-use software (Subtopic 350-40), which provides criteria to review cloud computing arrangements to determine whether the arrangement contains a software license or is solely a service contract. If the arrangement is determined to be a software license, fees paid to the vendor would be within the scope of internal-use software guidance. If not, the fees paid would be expensed as incurred. The Company's historical accounting for cloud computing arrangements was consistent with this guidance and no change in accounting was required.

During the quarter ended December 31, 2016, the Company adopted FASB ASU 2014-17, Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity's Ability to Continue as a Going Concern, which requires management to assess the Company's ability to continue as a going concern and to provide related disclosures in certain circumstances. Management's assessment discovered no uncertainties about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements - On May 28, 2014, the FASB issued ASU2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers which provides a single comprehensive revenue recognition model for all contracts with customers to improve comparability within industries, across industries and across capital markets. On August 12, 2015, the FASB issued a one-year deferral of the effective date of the ASU. The update will now be effective for Energizer beginning October 1, 2018. Energizer is in the process of evaluating the impact the revised guidance will have on its financial statements.

On October 24, 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-16, Intra-entity Transfers of Assets Other Than Inventory. This ASU requires tax expense to be recognized from the sale of intra-entity assets, other than inventory, when the transfer occurs, even though the effects of the transaction are eliminated in consolidation. Under the current guidance, the tax effects of transfers would have been deferred until the transferred asset was sold or otherwise recovered through use. Upon adoption, any deferred charge established upon the intra-company transfer would be recorded as a cumulative effect adjustment to retained earnings. The update will be effective for Energizer beginning October 1, 2018 with early adoption permitted in the first interim period of a fiscal year. The Company expects to adopt the new guidance during the first quarter of fiscal 2018.

At September 30, 2016, the Company had a deferred charge of $51.2 included in Other assets. During the quarter ended December 31, 2016, new IRS regulations were passed that resulted in the recognition of an additional deferred charge. As of December 31, 2016, the total deferred charge increased to $63.0.

On January 5, 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-01, Clarifying the Definition of a Business. This ASU creates a more practical definition and guidelines to determine whether a set of assets and activities is a business. This simplifies the decision making process of determining whether a purchase constitutes a business combination or an acquisition of assets. This ASU is effective for the Company for any new acquisitions starting October 1, 2018.
On January 26, 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-04, Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment. This ASU eliminates the need to assign the fair value of a reporting unit to each of its assets and liabilities when quantifying an impairment charge. The impairment charge would now be determined based on the comparison of the fair value of a reporting unit to its carrying amount. The Company will adjust its goodwill testing procedures accordingly upon adoption. This ASU is effective for the Company starting with its annual goodwill impairment tests for fiscal year 2021.
(2) Spin Costs

On July 1, 2015, Energizer completed its legal separation from Edgewell Personal Care Company (Edgewell) via a tax free spin-off (the spin-off or spin). The Company incurred costs associated with the evaluation, planning and execution of the spin transaction. During the quarter ended December 31, 2016, the Company sold a facility in North America that was previously closed as part of the spin and recorded a gain of $1.3 in spin restructuring. For the quarter ended December 31, 2015, the Company incurred spin costs of $6.9 of which $6.0 was recorded in SG&A and $0.9 was recorded in spin restructuring.

On a project to date basis, the total costs incurred and allocated to Energizer for the spin were $200.1, inclusive of the costs of early debt retirement recorded in fiscal 2015. Energizer expects the remaining spin costs to be immaterial.

The following table represents the spin restructuring accrual activity and ending accrual balance at December 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015 on the Consolidated Condensed Balance Sheet. At December 31, 2016, $2.2 of the liability was recorded in Other current liabilities and the remaining $2.1 was recorded in Other liabilities. At December 31, 2015, the balance was recorded in Other current liabilities.

(a) Includes the impact of currency translation.

(3) Income Taxes    

The three month effective tax rate was 28.7% as compared to 30.7% for the prior year comparative period. The decrease in the current year rate is primarily due to a $1.4 discrete tax benefit recognized in our income tax provision as a result of the new stock compensation guidance adopted in the current quarter.

(4) Share-Based Payments

Total compensation cost charged against income for Energizer’s share-based compensation arrangements was $5.2 for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 and $4.6 for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 and were recorded in SG&A expense. The total income tax benefit recognized in the unaudited Consolidated Condensed Statements of Earnings and Comprehensive Income for share-based compensation arrangements was $2.0 for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 and $1.7 for the quarter ended December 31, 2015.

Restricted Stock Equivalents (RSE)—(in whole dollars and total shares)

In November 2016, the Company granted RSE awards to a group of key employees which included approximately 92,000 shares that vest ratably over four years and granted RSE awards to a group of key executives of approximately 73,000 shares that vest on the third anniversary of the date of the grant. In addition, the Company granted approximately 249,000 performance shares to a group of key employees and key executives that will vest subject to meeting targeted amounts for both cumulative adjusted earnings per share and cumulative free cash flow as a percentage of sales over the three year performance period. These performance measures are equally weighted in determining the final share award. The closing stock price on the date of the grant used to determine the award fair value was $43.84.

In November 2015, the Company granted RSE awards to a group of key employees which included approximately 106,000 shares that vest ratably over four years and granted RSE awards to a group of key executives of approximately 87,000 shares that vest on the third anniversary of the date of the grant. In addition, the Company granted approximately 290,000 performance shares to a group of key employees and key executives that will vest subject to meeting targeted amounts for both cumulative adjusted earnings per share and cumulative free cash flow as a percentage of sales over the three year performance period. These performance measures are equally

weighted in determining the final share award. The closing stock price on the date of the grant used to determine the award fair value was $37.34.

(5) Earnings per share

Basic earnings per share is based on the average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share is based on the average number of shares used for the basic earnings per share calculation, adjusted for the dilutive effect of restricted stock equivalents and performance share awards.

The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted earnings per share for the quarter ended
December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2016, all restricted stock equivalents and performance shares were dilutive and included in the diluted net earnings per share calculations. For the quarter ended December 31, 2015, approximately 0.5 million anti-dilutive securities were not included in the diluted net earnings per share calculations.

(6) Segments

As of October 1, 2016, the Company changed its internal reporting structure and is managing operations via three major geographic reportable segments: Americas (North America and Latin America), Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), and Asia Pacific. Prior to this year, the Americas' segment was reported as two separate geographic reportable segments. The Company changed its reporting structure to better reflect how the Company is managing the operations as well as what the chief operating decision maker is reviewing to make organizational decisions about resource allocation. The prior period segment information has been restated to reflect the current reportable segment structure of the Company.

Segment performance is evaluated based on segment operating profit, exclusive of general corporate expenses, share-based compensation costs, costs associated with most restructuring initiatives, acquisition and integration activities, amortization costs, business realignment activities, research & development costs, and other items determined to be corporate in nature. Financial items, such as interest income and expense, are managed on a global basis at the corporate level. The exclusion of substantially all acquisition, integration, restructuring and realignment costs from segment results reflects management’s view on how it evaluates segment performance.

Energizer’s operating model includes a combination of standalone and shared business functions between the geographic segments, varying by country and region of the world. Shared functions include, but are not limited to, IT, procurement and finance. Energizer applies a fully allocated cost basis, in which shared business functions are allocated between segments. Such allocations are estimates, and do not represent the costs of such services if performed on a standalone basis.

On June 1, 2015, the Company entered into a credit agreement which provides for a five-year $250.0 senior secured revolving credit facility (Revolving Facility) and a seven-year $400.0 senior secured term loan B facility (Term Loan) that became effective on June 30, 2015. Also on June 1, 2015, Energizer completed the issuance and sale of $600.0 of 5.50% Senior Notes due 2025 (Senior Notes), with proceeds placed in escrow and released June

11



30, 2015. The proceeds from the Term Loan and Senior Notes were transferred to Edgewell on June 30, 2015 in exchange for the contribution of certain assets by Edgewell to the Company in connection with the separation.

On July 8, 2016, the Company entered into an amendment to the existing credit agreement to increase capacity on the Revolving Facility to $350.0. This additional capacity is available to be utilized for working capital and other general corporate purposes. There were no other changes to the terms of the Revolving Facility.

Borrowings under the Revolving Facility will bear interest at LIBOR or the Base Rate (as defined) plus the applicable margin based on total Company leverage. As of December 31, 2016, the Company had $25.0 of outstanding borrowings under the Revolving Facility and had $6.7 of outstanding letters of credit. Taking into account outstanding letters of credit, $318.3 remains available as of December 31, 2016.

The $400.0 Term Loan was issued at a $1.0 discount and bears interest at LIBOR subject to a 75 basis points floor, plus 250 basis points. The loans and commitments under the Term Loan require quarterly principal payments at a rate of 0.25% of the original principal balance. Obligations under the Revolving Facility and Term Loan are jointly and severally guaranteed by certain of its existing and future direct and indirectly wholly-owned U.S. subsidiaries. There is a first priority perfected lien on substantially all of the assets and property of the Company and guarantors and proceeds therefrom excluding certain excluded assets. In August 2015, the Company entered into an interest rate swap agreement with one major financial institution that fixed the variable benchmark component (LIBOR) on $200.0 of Energizer's variable rate debt through June 2022 at an interest rate of 2.22%.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2016, our weighted average interest rate on variable rate debt, inclusive of the interest rate swap, was 3.69%.

The Senior Notes were sold to qualified institutional buyers and will not be registered under the Securities Act or applicable state securities laws. Interest is payable semi-annually on the Senior Notes, and payments began on December 15, 2015. The Senior Notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed, jointly and severally, on an unsecured basis by each of the Company's domestic restricted subsidiaries that is a borrower or guarantor under the Revolving Facility and Term Loan.

The notes payable balance was $28.9 at December 31, 2016 and $57.4 at September 30, 2016. The December 31, 2016 balance was comprised of $25.0 outstanding borrowings on the Revolving Facility as well as $3.9 of borrowings in certain foreign affiliates. The September 30, 2016 balance was comprised of $52.5 outstanding borrowings on the Revolving facility as well as $4.9 borrowings in certain foreign affiliates.

Debt Covenants

The agreements governing the Company's debt contain certain customary representations and warranties, affirmative, negative and financial covenants and provisions relating to events of default. If the Company fails to comply with these covenants or with other requirements of these debt agreements, the lenders may have the right to accelerate the maturity of the debt. Acceleration under one of these facilities would trigger cross defaults to other borrowings. As of December 31, 2016, the Company was, and expects to remain, in compliance with the provisions and covenants associated with its debt agreements.

Aggregate maturities of long-term debt, including current maturities, at December 31, 2016 were as follows: $4.0 in one year, $4.0 in two years, $4.0 in three years, $4.0 in four years, $4.0 in five years and $975.0 thereafter.

The counterparties to long-term committed borrowings consist of a number of major financial institutions. The Company consistently monitors positions with, and credit ratings of, counterparties both internally and by using outside ratings agencies.

(9) Pension Plans

The Company has several defined benefit pension plans covering substantially all of its employees in the United States (U.S.) and certain employees in other countries. The plans provide retirement benefits based on various factors including years of service and in certain circumstances, earnings. The U.S. plan was frozen in fiscal year 2015.

(10) Shareholder's Equity

In July 2015, the Company's Board of Directors approved an authorization for the Company to acquire up to 7.5 million shares of its common stock. Future share repurchases, if any, will be determined by the Company based on its evaluation of the market conditions, capital allocation objectives, legal and regulatory requirements and other factors. During the three months ended December 31, 2016, the Company repurchased 182,029 shares for $8.1, at an average price of $44.43 per share, under this authorization.

Subsequent to the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2017 and through the date of this report, the Company has repurchased 10,000 shares of its common stock at an average price of $46.68 per share.

On November 14, 2016, the Board of Directors declared a dividend for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 of $0.275 per share of common stock. The dividend was paid on December 15, 2016 to all shareholders of record as of November 30, 2016 and totaled $17.0. The incremental dividend payments of $1.1 made in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 were related to restricted stock awards that vested during the quarter.

Subsequent to the fiscal quarter end, on January 30, 2017, the Board of Directors declared a dividend for the second quarter of 2017 of $0.275 per share of common stock, payable on March 14, 2017, to all shareholders of record as of the close of business February 21, 2017.

(11) Financial Instruments and Risk Management

The market risk inherent in the Company's operations creates potential earnings volatility arising from changes in currency rates, interest rates and commodity prices. The Company's policy allows derivatives to be used only for identifiable exposures and, therefore, the Company does not enter into hedges for trading or speculative purposes where the sole objective is to generate profits.
Concentration of Credit Risk—The counterparties to derivative contracts consist of a number of major financial institutions and are generally institutions with which the Company maintains lines of credit. The Company does not enter into derivative contracts through brokers nor does it trade derivative contracts on any other exchange or over-the-counter markets. Risk of currency positions and mark-to-market valuation of positions are strictly monitored.
The Company continually monitors positions with, and credit ratings of, counterparties both internally and by using outside rating agencies. While nonperformance by these counterparties exposes Energizer to potential credit losses, such losses are not anticipated.


13



In the ordinary course of business, the Company may enter into contractual arrangements (derivatives) to reduce its exposure to commodity price and foreign currency risks. The section below outlines the types of derivatives that existed at December 31, 2016 and September 30, 2016, as well as the Company's objectives and strategies for holding these derivative instruments.

Commodity Price Risk—Energizer uses raw materials that are subject to price volatility. The Company has used, and may in the future use, hedging instruments to reduce exposure to variability in cash flows associated with future purchases of certain materials and commodities. At December 31, 2016 and September 30, 2016, there were no open derivative or hedging instruments for future purchases of raw materials or commodities.

Foreign Currency Risk—A significant portion of Energizer’s product cost is more closely tied to the U.S. dollar than to the local currencies in which the product is sold. As such, a weakening of currencies relative to the U.S. dollar results in margin declines unless mitigated through pricing actions, which are not always available due to the economic or competitive environment. Conversely, a strengthening in currencies relative to the U.S. dollar can improve margins. The primary currencies to which Energizer is exposed include the Euro, the British pound, the Canadian dollar and the Australian dollar. However, the Company also has significant exposures in many other currencies which, in the aggregate, may have a material impact on the Company's operations.

Additionally, Energizer’s foreign subsidiaries enter into internal and external transactions that create nonfunctional
currency balance sheet positions at the foreign subsidiary level. These exposures are generally the result of intercompany purchases, intercompany loans and, to a lesser extent, external purchases, and are revalued in the foreign subsidiary’s local currency at the end of each period. Changes in the value of the non-functional currency balance sheet positions in relation to the foreign subsidiary’s local currency results in a transaction gain or loss recorded in Other financing items, net on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings and Comprehensive Income. The primary currency to which Energizer’s foreign subsidiaries are exposed is the U.S. dollar.

Interest Rate Risk—Energizer has interest rate risk with respect to interest expense on variable rate debt. At December 31, 2016, Energizer had variable rate debt outstanding with an original principal balance of $400.0 under the Term Loan. During fiscal year 2015, Energizer entered into an interest rate swap agreement with one major financial institution that fixed the variable benchmark component (LIBOR) on $200.0 of Energizer's variable rate debt through June 2022 at an interest rate of 2.22%. This hedging instrument is considered a cash flow hedge for accounting purposes. At December 31, 2016 and September 30, 2016, Energizer had an unrecognized pre-tax loss on this interest rate swap agreement of $2.5 and $9.7, respectively, included in Accumulated other comprehensive loss on the Consolidated Balance Sheets.

Cash Flow Hedges

The Company has entered into a series of forward currency contracts to hedge the cash flow uncertainty of forecasted inventory purchases due to short term currency fluctuations. Energizer’s foreign affiliates, which have the largest exposure to U.S. dollar purchases, have the Euro, the British pound, the Canadian dollar and the Australian dollar as their local currencies. These foreign currencies represent a significant portion of Energizer's foreign currency exposure. At December 31, 2016 and September 30, 2016, Energizer had an unrealized pre-tax gain of $3.6 and loss of $1.1, respectively, on these forward currency contracts accounted for as cash flow hedges included in Accumulated other comprehensive loss on the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Assuming foreign exchange rates versus the U.S. dollar remain at December 31, 2016 levels, over the next 12 months, $3.5 of the pre-tax gain included in Accumulated other comprehensive loss is expected to be recognized in earnings. Contract maturities for these hedges extend into fiscal year 2018. There were 60 open foreign currency contracts at December 31, 2016, with a total notional value of $93.

Derivatives not Designated in Hedging Relationships

Energizer enters into foreign currency derivative contracts which are not designated as cash flow hedges for accounting purposes, to hedge existing balance sheet exposures. Any gains or losses on these contracts are expected to be offset by corresponding exchange losses or gains on the underlying exposures; and as such are not subject to significant market risk. There were 9 open foreign currency derivative contracts which are not designated as cash flow hedges at December 31, 2016, with a total notional value of approximately $79.

Fair Value Hierarchy—Accounting guidance on fair value measurements for certain financial assets and liabilities requires that assets and liabilities carried at fair value be classified in one of the following three categories:

Level 1: Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

Level 2: Observable market-based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data.

Level 3: Unobservable inputs reflecting the reporting entity’s own assumptions or external inputs from inactive markets.

Under the fair value accounting guidance hierarchy, an entity is required to maximize the use of quoted market prices and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. The following table sets forth the Company's financial assets and liabilities, which are carried at fair value, as of December 31, 2016 and September 30, 2016 that are measured on a recurring basis during the period, segregated by level within the fair value hierarchy:

Energizer had no Level 1 financial assets or liabilities, other than pension plan assets, and no Level 3 financial assets or liabilities at December 31, 2016 and at September 30, 2016.

16



Due to the nature of cash and cash equivalents, carrying amounts on the balance sheets approximate estimated fair value. The estimated fair value of cash and cash equivalents has been determined based on Level 2 inputs.

At December 31, 2016, the estimated fair value of the Company's unfunded deferred compensation liability is determined based upon the quoted market prices of investment options that are offered under the plan. The estimated fair value of the exit lease liability is determined based on the discounted cash flows of the remaining lease rentals reduced by estimated sublease rentals that could be reasonably obtained for the property. The estimated fair value of foreign currency contracts and interest rate swap as described above is the amount that the Company would receive or pay to terminate the contracts, considering first, quoted market prices of comparable agreements, or in the absence of quoted market prices, such factors as interest rates, currency exchange rates and remaining maturities.

At December 31, 2016 and September 30, 2016, the fair market value of fixed rate long-term debt was $607.1 and $600.1, respectively compared to its carrying value of $600.0. The estimated fair value of the long-term debt is estimated using yields obtained from independent pricing sources for similar types of borrowing arrangements. The estimated fair value of fixed rate long-term debt has been determined based on Level 2 inputs.

(14) Legal proceedings/contingencies

The Company and its affiliates are subject to a number of legal proceedings in various jurisdictions arising out of its operations. Many of these legal matters are in preliminary stages and involve complex issues of law and fact, and may proceed for protracted periods of time. The amount of liability, if any, from these proceedings cannot be determined with certainty. We are a party to legal proceedings and claims that arise during the ordinary course of business. We review our legal proceedings and claims, regulatory reviews and inspections and other legal proceedings on an ongoing basis and follow appropriate accounting guidance when making accrual and disclosure decisions. We establish accruals for those contingencies where the incurrence of a loss is probable and can be reasonably estimated, and we disclose the amount accrued and the amount of a reasonably possible loss in excess of the amount accrued, if such disclosure is necessary for our financial statements to not be misleading. We do not record liabilities when the likelihood that the liability has been incurred is probable, but the amount cannot be reasonably estimated. Based upon present information, the Company believes that its liability, if any, arising from such pending legal proceedings, asserted legal claims and known potential legal claims which are likely to be asserted, is not reasonably likely to be material to the Company's financial position, results of operations, or cash flows, when taking into account established accruals for estimated liabilities.

Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

The following discussion is meant to provide investors with information that management believes helpful in reviewing Energizer’s historical-basis results of operations, operating segment results, and liquidity and capital resources. Statements in this Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (“MD&A”) that are not historical may be considered forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. You should read the following MD&A in conjunction with the Consolidated Financial Statements (unaudited) and corresponding notes included herein. This MD&A contains forward-looking statements. The matters discussed in these forward-looking statements are subject to risk, uncertainties, and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected or implied in the forward-looking statements. Please see “Risk Factors” and “Cautionary Statement Concerning Forward-Looking Statements” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2016 for a discussion of the uncertainties, risks and assumptions associated with these statements.

All amounts discussed are in millions of U.S. dollars, unless otherwise indicated.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Company reports its financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. ("GAAP"). However, management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures provide users with additional meaningful comparisons to the corresponding historical or future period. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude items that are not reflective of the Company's on-going operating performance, such as costs related to the spin, restructuring activities, and acquisition and integration costs. In addition, these measures help investors to see year over year comparability when excluding currency fluctuations, acquisition activity as well as other company initiatives that are not on-going. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are an enhancement to assist investors in understanding our business and in performing analysis consistent with financial models developed by research analysts. Investors should consider non-GAAP measures in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, the comparable GAAP measures.

We provide the following non-GAAP measures and calculations, as well as the corresponding reconciliation to the closest GAAP measure:

Segment Profit. This amount represents the operations of our three geographic segments including allocations for shared functions. General corporate and other expenses, Global marketing expenses, R&D expenses, amortization expense, interest expense, other financing and charges related to the spin-off, restructuring, acquisition and integration have all been excluded from segment profit.

Adjusted Earnings Before Income Taxes, Adjusted Net Earnings and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share (EPS). These measures exclude the impact of the costs related to spin-off, restructurings, acquisition and integration.

Organic. This is the non-GAAP financial measurement of the change in revenue, segment profit or other margins that excludes or otherwise adjusts for the impact of acquisitions and the impact of currency from the changes in foreign currency exchange rates as defined below:

Impact of acquisitions. The Company acquired HandStands Holdings Corporation (HandStands or the auto care acquisition) on July 1, 2016. This includes the impact of the auto care acquisition's on-going operations contributed to each respective income statement caption. This does not include the impact of acquisition and integration costs associated with the acquisition.
Impact of currency. The Company evaluates the operating performance of our Company on a currency neutral basis. The impact of currency is the difference between the value of current year foreign operations at the current period ending USD exchange rate, compared to the value of the current year foreign operations at the prior period ending USD exchange rate.
Adjusted Gross Margin and Adjusted Selling, General & Administrative (SG&A) as a percent of sales. Detail for adjusted gross margin and adjusted SG&A as a percent of sales are also supplemental non-GAAP measures. These measures exclude the impact of costs related to spin-off, restructuring, acquisition and integration.

Forward-Looking Statements

This document contains both historical and forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are not based on historical facts but instead reflect our expectations, estimates or projections concerning future results or events, including, without limitation, the future sales, gross margins, costs, earnings, cash flows, tax rates and performance of Energizer. These statements generally can be identified by the use of forward-looking words or phrases such as "believe," "expect," "expectation," "anticipate," "may," "could," "intend," "belief," "estimate," "plan," "target," "predict," "likely," "will," "should," "forecast," "outlook," or other similar words or phrases. These statements are not guarantees of performance and are inherently subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict and could cause our actual results to differ materially from those indicated by those statements. We cannot assure you that any of our expectations, estimates or projections will be achieved. The forward-looking statements included in this document are only made as of the date of this document and we disclaim any obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement to reflect subsequent events or circumstances. Numerous factors could cause our actual results and events to differ materially from those expressed or implied by forward-looking statements, including, without limitation:

market and economic conditions;
market trends in the categories in which we compete;
the success of new products and the ability to continually develop and market new products;
our ability to attract, retain and improve distribution with key customers;
our ability to continue planned advertising and other promotional spending;
our ability to timely execute strategic initiatives, including restructurings, and international go-to-market changes in a manner that will positively impact our financial condition and results of operations and does not disrupt our business operations;
the impact of strategic initiatives, including restructurings, on our relationships with employees, customers and vendors;
our ability to maintain and improve market share in the categories in which we operate despite heightened competitive pressure;
our ability to improve operations and realize cost savings;
the impact of foreign currency exchange rates and currency controls, as well as offsetting hedges, including the impact of the United Kingdom's referendum vote and announced intention to exit the European Union at some future date;
the impact of raw materials and other commodity costs;
the impact of legislative changes or regulatory determinations or changes by federal, state and local, and foreign authorities, as well as the impact of potential changes to tax laws, policies and regulations;
costs and reputational damage associated with cyber-attacks or information security breaches or other events;
our ability to acquire and integrate businesses, and to realize the projected results of acquisitions, including our ability to integrate the auto care operations successfully and to achieve the anticipated cost savings, synergies, and other anticipated benefits;
the impact of advertising and product liability claims and other litigation; and
compliance with debt covenants and maintenance of credit ratings as well as the impact of interest and principal repayment of our existing and any future debt.

In addition, other risks and uncertainties not presently known to us or that we consider immaterial could affect the accuracy of any such forward-looking statements. The list of factors above is illustrative, but by no means exhaustive. All forward-looking statements should be evaluated with the understanding of their inherent uncertainty. Additional risks and uncertainties include those detailed from time to time in our publicly filed documents, including those described under the heading “Risk Factors” in our Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 15, 2016.

Acquisition

On July 1, 2016, the Company completed its acquisition of HandStands, a leading designer and marketer of automotive fragrance and appearance products, for a total purchase price of $340.0 plus working capital adjustments of $4.0, net of acquired cash.

With the auto care acquisition, Energizer's brands now include Refresh Your Car!®, California Scents®, Driven®, Bahama & Co.®, LEXOL® and Eagle One®. The acquisition will allow the Company to expand its portfolio, increase presence at existing customers, and utilize its scale and global supply chain to drive efficiencies.

During the quarter ended December 31, 2016, the Company incurred $0.8 of acquisition and integration costs. Total acquisition and integration related costs associated with the auto care acquisition incurred to date were $20.1. Acquisition and integration costs for 2017 are expected to be in the range of $5 to $10.


Highlights / Operating Results

Financial Results (in millions, except per share data)

Energizer reported first fiscal quarter net earnings of $95.6, or $1.52 per diluted share. This compares to net income of $65.5, or $1.05 per diluted share in the prior year first fiscal quarter. Adjusted net earnings per diluted share were $1.51 for the first fiscal quarter as compared to $1.16 in the prior year quarter.
Earnings before income taxes, Net earnings and diluted EPS for the time periods presented were impacted by certain items related to spin costs, spin restructuring costs, restructuring costs, acquisition and integration costs as described in the tables below. The impact of these items are provided below as a reconciliation of Earning before income taxes, Net earnings and Diluted EPS to adjusted Earnings before income taxes, adjusted Net earnings and adjusted Diluted EPS, which are non-GAAP measures.

See non-GAAP measure disclosures above.

Net sales were $559.6 for the first quarter of 2017, an increase of 10.4% as compared to the prior year quarter driven by the following items:

Organic net sales increased 7.2% due to the following items:

Carryover benefit of new distribution and shelf space gains achieved throughout fiscal 2016 contributed approximately 3%;

Incremental holiday activity contributed approximately 3%;

Improved pricing and product mix of 0.8%; and

Increased volumes related to storms of 0.4%.

Net sales increased $27.8 million, or 5.5%, due to the impact of the auto care acquisition.

Unfavorable currency impacts were $11.5 million, or 2.3%.


Gross margin percentage for the first fiscal quarter of 2017 was 48.5%, up 320 basis points. Excluding prior year restructuring costs of $1.1, gross margin increased 290 basis points driven by cost reductions realized from productivity improvements, material and purchased product cost favorability and improved overhead absorption driven by the strong volume performance in the first quarter. These items were partially offset by the unfavorable impact of foreign currencies on our gross margin rate.

Advertising and sales promotion expense (A&P) was $34.3 in the first fiscal quarter of 2017, or 6.1% of net sales, up slightly as compared to $30.1, or 5.9% of net sales, in the prior period.
Selling, general, and administrative expense (SG&A) was $81.3 in the first fiscal quarter of 2017, or 14.5% of net sales, as compared to $83.7, or 16.5% of net sales, in the prior period. Included in the first fiscal quarter results were pre-tax costs of $0.8 related to acquisition and integration costs. Included in the prior year quarter results were pre-tax costs of $6.0 related to the spin transaction. Excluding spin, acquisition and integration costs, SG&A was $80.5, an increase of $2.8 over the prior year. The increase was due primarily to $3.5 of incremental SG&A related to auto care operations in the current first quarter. SG&A, excluding spin, acquisition and integration costs, was 14.4% of net sales compared to 15.3% in the prior year. The lower percentage comparison versus the prior year quarter reflects the improved top-line performance and continued tight cost controls.
Research and Development (R&D) was essentially flat at $5.8, or 1.0% of net sales, for the quarter ended December 31, 2016, as compared to $6.1, or 1.2% of net sales, in the prior year comparative period.

Interest expense was $13.3 for the first fiscal quarter of 2017 and $12.9 for the prior year comparative period. The current period expense is related to borrowings under the Revolving Facility, the impact of the interest rate swap and the outstanding term loan and bonds at December 31, 2016.

23



Other financing items, net was expense of $1.5 for the first fiscal quarter of 2017 and $0.6 of income for the prior year comparative period. The first fiscal quarter activity reflects the net impact of interest income and hedging contract gains which were more than offset by net revaluation losses on nonfunctional currency balance sheet exposures. The prior fiscal quarter activity reflects the net impact of hedging contract gains and interest income which were partially offset by net revaluation losses on nonfunctional currency balance sheet exposures.

The effective tax rate was 28.7% as compared to 30.7% for the prior year comparative period. The decrease in the current year rate is primarily due to a $1.4 discrete tax benefit recognized in our income tax provision as a result of the new stock compensation guidance adopted in the current quarter.

Spin Costs

The Company incurred costs associated with the evaluation, planning and execution of the spin transaction. During the quarter ended December 31, 2016, the Company sold a facility in North America that was previously closed as part of the spin and recorded a gain of $1.3 in spin restructuring. For the quarter ended December 31, 2015, the Company incurred spin costs of $6.9, of which $6.0 was recorded in SG&A and $0.9 was recorded in spin restructuring.

On a project to date basis, the total costs incurred and allocated to Energizer for the spin-off were $200.1, inclusive of the costs of early debt retirement recorded in fiscal 2015. Energizer expects the remaining spin costs to be immaterial.

Segment Results

As of October 1, 2016, the Company changed its internal reporting structure and is managing operations via three major geographic reportable segments: Americas (North America and Latin America), Europe, Middle East and Africa (“EMEA”), and Asia Pacific. Prior to this year, the Americas segment was reported as two separate geographic reportable segments. The Company changed its internal reporting structure to combine these two geographic regions to better reflect how the Company is managing the operations.

Segment performance is evaluated based on segment operating profit, exclusive of general corporate expenses, share-based compensation costs, costs associated with most restructuring initiatives, acquisition and integration activities, business realignment activities, research & development costs, and other items determined to be corporate in nature. Financial items, such as interest income and expense, are managed on a global basis at the corporate level. The exclusion of substantially all acquisition, integration, restructuring and realignment costs from segment results reflects management’s view on how it evaluates segment performance.

Energizer’s operating model includes a combination of standalone and shared business functions between the geographic segments, varying by country and region of the world. Shared functions include, but are not limited to, IT, procurement and finance. Energizer applies a fully allocated cost basis, in which shared business functions are allocated between segments. Such allocations are estimates, and do not represent the costs of such services if performed on a standalone basis. This structure is the basis for Energizer's reportable operating segments information, as included in the tables in Note 6, Segments, to the unaudited Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements for the quarter ended December 31, 2016.

Segment sales and profitability analysis for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 are presented below.

Results for the Quarter Ended December 31, 2016

Americas reported a net sales increase of 16.4% which was positively impacted by the auto care acquisition that contributed $23.6 or 7.5%, partially offset by foreign currency of $6.0 or 1.9%. Organic net sales increased 10.8% as a result of distribution and shelf space gains, strong holiday activity, and pricing in certain markets.

EMEA reported net sales declined 2.7%, negatively impacted by foreign currency (5.5%). Organic net sales increased by 0.8%, due to increased pricing in certain markets and favorable product mix partially offset by the timing of holiday shipments and prior year promotional activity that was not repeated in the current year. In addition, net sales increased $2.4, or 2.0%, due to the impact of the auto care acquisition.

Asia Pacific reported net sales improved by 6.1%, including the positive impact of foreign currency of 1.3%. Organic net sales increased 2.4% driven primarily by distribution gains, strong holiday activity, and pricing in select markets. An additional $1.8, or 2.4%, increase in net sales is attributable to the impact of the auto care acquisition.

Refer to Note 6, Segments, in the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for a reconciliation from segment profit to earnings before income taxes.

Results for the Quarter Ended December 31, 2016

Global reported segment profit improved by $32.7, or 23.2%. Excluding the unfavorable movement in foreign currencies of $7.1 and the favorable impact of the auto care acquisition of $8.2, organic segment profit increased 22.4%, or $31.6, in the current fiscal quarter. The increase was driven by higher net sales and improved gross margins as a result of cost reductions realized from productivity improvements, material and purchased product cost favorability and improved overhead absorption driven by the strong volume performance in the first quarter. Increased overhead and A&P spending partially offset the volume and margin rate favorability.

Americas reported segment profit improved $24.4 inclusive of the favorable impact of the auto care acquisition of $5.8, partially offset by the negative impact from foreign currency of $3.8. Organic segment profit increased by $22.4 driven by distribution and shelf space gains partially offset by increased overhead and higher A&P spending.

EMEA reported segment profit increased $3.1 inclusive of the favorable impact of the auto care acquisition of $1.4 offset by the negative impact from foreign currency of $4.1. Organic segment profit increased by $5.8 driven by

higher net sales and favorable cost mix which improved gross margin, slightly offset by increased overhead and higher A&P spending.

Asia Pacific reported segment profit increased $5.2 inclusive of the favorable impact of the auto care acquisition of $1.0 and the favorable impact from foreign currency $0.8. Organic segment profit improved by $3.4 due primarily to net sales gains and favorable gross margins partially offset by increased overhead and A&P spending.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2016, general corporate expenses were $14.1, a decrease of $1.8 as compared to the prior year comparative period due primarily to lower employee benefit related costs.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2016, global marketing expenses were $3.0 compared to $2.2 in the prior year comparative periods. The global marketing expense represents a center led approach to managing global marketing activities in support our brands.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Energizer’s primary future cash needs will be centered on operating activities, working capital and strategic investments. We believe that our future cash from operations, together with our access to capital markets, will provide adequate resources to fund our operating and financing needs. Our access to, and the availability of, financing on acceptable terms in the future will be affected by many factors, including: (i) our credit rating, (ii) the liquidity of the overall capital markets and (iii) the current state of the economy. Moreover, to preserve the tax-free treatment of the separation, Energizer may not be able to engage in certain strategic or capital-raising transactions following the separation, such as issuing equity securities beyond certain thresholds, which may limit Energizer’s access to capital markets, or making acquisitions using its equity as currency, potentially requiring Energizer to issue more debt than would otherwise be optimal. There can be no assurances that we will continue to have access to capital markets on terms acceptable to us. See the “Risk Factors” section of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2016 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 15, 2016.
 
Cash is managed centrally with net earnings reinvested locally and working capital requirements met from existing liquid funds. At December 31, 2016, Energizer had $297.7 of cash and cash equivalents, approximately 95% of which was outside of the U.S. Given our extensive international operations, a significant portion of our cash is denominated in foreign currencies. We manage our worldwide cash requirements by reviewing available funds among the many subsidiaries through which we conduct our business and the cost effectiveness with which those funds can be accessed. The repatriation of cash balances from certain of our subsidiaries could have adverse tax consequences or be subject to regulatory capital requirements; however, those balances are generally available without legal restrictions to fund ordinary business operations.

On June 1, 2015, the Company entered into a credit agreement which provides for a five-year $250.0 senior secured revolving credit facility (Revolving Facility) and a seven-year $400.0 senior secured term loan B facility (Term Loan) that became effective on June 30, 2015. Also on June 1, 2015, Energizer completed the issuance and sale of $600.0 of 5.50% Senior Notes due 2025 (Senior Notes), with proceeds placed in escrow and released June 30, 2015.

On July 8, 2016, the Company entered into an amendment to the existing credit agreement to increase capacity on the Revolving Facility to $350.0. This additional capacity is available to be utilized for working capital and other general corporate purposes. There were no other changes to the terms of the Revolving Facility.

Borrowings under the Revolving Facility will bear interest at LIBOR or the Base Rate (as defined) plus the applicable margin based on total Company leverage. As of December 31, 2016, the Company had $25.0 of outstanding borrowings under the Revolving Facility and had $6.7 of outstanding letters of credit. Taking into account outstanding letters of credit, $318.3 remains available as of December 31, 2016.

Operating Activities

Cash flow from operating activities was $91.8 in the three months ended December 31, 2016, as compared to $95.5 in the prior year comparative period. An increase in net earnings of $30.1 positively contributed to operating cash flow in the quarter. Year over year changes in working capital of $39.3 offset the increased net earnings. The change in working capital was driven by the following: higher accounts receivable of approximately $15 due to the timing of collecting receivable balances; reduced accounts payable and other current liabilities of approximately $9 driven by timing of payments; and the year over year inventory change of approximately $16. Inventories were elevated at December 31, 2016 compared to the prior year in support of anticipated demand.

Investing Activities

Net cash used by investing activities was $0.6 and $3.3 in three months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively, and consisted of the following:

Capital expenditures of $4.9 and $3.3 in the three months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively. These capital expenditures were funded by cash flow from operations.

The current year expenditures were offset by proceeds from the sale of assets of $4.3 related to the sale of two previously closed facilities.

Investing cash outflows of approximately $30 to $35 are anticipated for the full fiscal year 2017 for capital expenditures relating to maintenance, product development and cost reduction initiatives. Total capital expenditures are expected to be financed with funds generated from operations.

Financing Activities

Net cash used by financing activities was $63.2 for the three months ended December 31, 2016 as compared to $34.9 in the prior fiscal year comparative period. For three months ended December 31, 2016, cash flow from financing activities consists of the following:

Net decrease in debt with original maturities of 90 days or less of $27.9, primarily related to the repayment of borrowings on our Revolving Facility;

Dividends paid of $18.1 (see below);

Common stock repurchases of $8.1 representing 182,029 shares at an average price of $44.43 per share (see below);

Taxes paid for withheld share-based payments of $8.1; and

Payments of debt with maturities greater than 90 days of $1.0.

For the three months ended December 31, 2015, cash flow from financing activities consisted of the following:

Net increase in debt with original maturities of 90 days or less of $5.4, related to notes payable in our international businesses;

Dividends paid of $15.4 during the first fiscal quarter;

Common stock repurchases of $21.8 at an average price of $36.27 per share;

Taxes paid for withheld share-based payments of $3.9; and


28



Excess tax benefits from share-based payments of $0.8.

Dividends

On November 14, 2016, the Board of Directors declared a dividend for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 of $0.275 per share of common stock. The dividend was paid on December 15, 2016 to shareholders on record as of November 30, 2016 and totaled $17.0. The incremental dividend payments of $1.1 made in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 were related to restricted stock awards that vested during the quarter.

Subsequent to the fiscal quarter end, on January 30, 2017, the Board of Directors declared a dividend for the second quarter of 2017 of $0.275 per share of common stock, payable on March 14, 2017, to all shareholders of record as of the close of business February 21, 2017.

Share Repurchases

In July 2015, the Company's Board of Directors approved an authorization for the Company to acquire up to 7.5 million shares of its common stock. Future share repurchase, if any, will be determined by the Company based on its evaluation of the market conditions, capital allocation objectives, legal and regulatory requirements and other factors.

During the three months ended December 31, 2016, the Company repurchased 182,029 shares for $8.1, at an average price of $44.43 per share, under this authorization. Subsequent to the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2017 and through the date of this report, the Company has repurchased 10,000 shares of its common stock at an average price of $46.68 per share.

From July 2015 and through the date of this filing, a total of 1.0 million shares were repurchased on the open market at an average price of $40.09 under the current share repurchase authorization. At February 1, 2017, the date of this filing, 6.5 million shares remain available for repurchase.

Other Matters

Environmental Matters

Accrued environmental costs at December 31, 2016 were $4.5. It is difficult to quantify with certainty the cost of environmental matters, particularly remediation and future capital expenditures for environmental control equipment. Total environmental capital expenditures and operating expenses are not expected to have a material effect on our total capital and operating expenditures, earnings or competitive position. However, current environmental spending estimates could be modified as a result of changes in our plans or our understanding of underlying facts, changes in legal requirements, including any requirements related to global climate change, or other factors.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

Market Risk Sensitive Instruments and Positions

The market risk inherent in the Company's financial instruments’ positions represents the potential loss arising from adverse changes in currency rates, commodity prices and interest rates. The following risk management discussion and the estimated amounts generated from the sensitivity analysis are forward-looking statements of market risk assuming certain adverse market conditions occur. The Company's derivatives are used only for identifiable exposures, and we have not entered into hedges for trading purposes where the sole objective is to generate profits.

Derivatives Designated as Cash Flow Hedging Relationships

A significant share of Energizer's product cost is more closely tied to the U.S. dollar than to the local currencies in which the product is sold. As such, a weakening of currencies relative to the U.S. dollar results in margin declines unless mitigated through pricing actions, which are not always available due to the economic or competitive environment. Conversely, strengthening of currencies relative to the U.S. dollar can improve reported results. The primary currencies to which Energizer is exposed include the Euro, the British pound, the Canadian dollar and the

29



Australian dollar. However, the Company also has significant exposures in many other currencies which, in the aggregate, may have a material impact on the Company's operations.

The Company has entered into a series of forward currency contracts to hedge the cash flow uncertainty of forecasted inventory purchases due to short term currency fluctuations. Energizer’s foreign affiliates, which have the largest exposure to U.S. dollar purchases, have the Euro, the British pound, the Canadian dollar and the Australian dollar as their local currencies. These foreign currencies represent a significant portion of Energizer's foreign currency exposure. At December 31, 2016 and September 30, 2016, Energizer had an unrealized pre-tax gain of $3.6 and loss of $1.1, respectively, on these forward currency contracts accounted for as cash flow hedges, included in Accumulated other comprehensive loss on the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Assuming foreign exchange rates versus the U.S. dollar remain at December 31, 2016 levels over the next twelve months, approximately $3.5 of the pre-tax gain included in Accumulated other comprehensive income at December 31, 2016, is expected to be included in earnings. Contract maturities for these hedges extend into fiscal year 2018.

Derivatives Not Designated as Cash Flow Hedging Relationships

Energizer's foreign subsidiaries enter into internal and external transactions that create nonfunctional currency balance sheet positions at the foreign subsidiary level. These exposures are generally the result of intercompany purchases, intercompany loans and to a lesser extent, external purchases, and are revalued in the foreign subsidiary’s local currency at the end of each period. Changes in the value of the non-functional currency balance sheet positions in relation to the foreign subsidiary’s local currency results in an exchange gain or loss recorded in Other financing items, net on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings and Comprehensive Income. The primary currency to which Energizer’s foreign subsidiaries are exposed is the U.S. dollar.

The Company enters into foreign currency derivative contracts which are not designated as cash flow hedges for accounting purposes to hedge balance sheet exposures. Any gains or losses on these contracts are expected to be offset by exchange gains or losses on the underlying exposures, thus they are not subject to significant market risk. The change in estimated fair value of the foreign currency contracts for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, resulted in expense of $1.9 and $0.7, respectively, and was recorded in Other financing items, net on the unaudited Consolidated Statements of Earnings and Comprehensive Income (Condensed).

Commodity Price Exposure

The Company uses raw materials that are subject to price volatility. The Company has used, and may in the future use, hedging instruments to reduce exposure to variability in cash flows associated with future purchases of certain materials and commodities. At December 31, 2016, there were no open derivative or hedging instruments for future purchases of raw materials or commodities.
 
Interest Rate Exposure

The Company has interest rate risk with respect to interest expense on variable rate debt. At December 31, 2016, Energizer had variable rate debt with a principal balance of $400.0 outstanding under the Term Loan. In August 2015, the Company entered into an interest rate swap agreement with one major financial institution that fixed the variable benchmark component (LIBOR) on $200.0 of the Company's variable rate debt through June of 2022 at an interest rate of 2.22%. For the quarter ended December 31, 2016, our weighted average interest rate on variable rate debt, inclusive of the interest rate swap, was 3.69%.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
 
We maintain a comprehensive set of disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our filings under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported accurately and within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to Energizer's management, including its Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures. Based on that evaluation performed, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that the disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of December

30



31, 2016, to provide reasonable assurance of the achievement of these objectives. Notwithstanding the foregoing, there can be no assurance that the Company's disclosure controls and procedures will detect or uncover all failures of persons within the Company and its consolidated subsidiaries to report material information otherwise required to be set forth in the Company's reports.

They have also determined in their evaluation that there was no change in the Company's internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ended December 31, 2016 that has materially affected or is reasonably likely to materially affect the Company's internal control over financial reporting.

PART II -- OTHER INFORMATION

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

The Company and its affiliates are subject to a number of legal proceedings in various jurisdictions arising out of its operations. Many of these legal matters are in preliminary stages and involve complex issues of law and fact, and may proceed for protracted periods of time. The amount of liability, if any, from these proceedings cannot be determined with certainty. We are a party to legal proceedings and claims that arise during the ordinary course of business. We review our legal proceedings and claims, regulatory reviews and inspections and other legal proceedings on an ongoing basis and follow appropriate accounting guidance when making accrual and disclosure decisions. We establish accruals for those contingencies where the incurrence of a loss is probable and can be reasonably estimated, and we disclose the amount accrued and the amount of a reasonably possible loss in excess of the amount accrued, if such disclosure is necessary for our financial statements to not be misleading. We do not record liabilities when the likelihood that the liability has been incurred is probable, but the amount cannot be reasonably estimated. Based upon present information, the Company believes that its liability, if any, arising from such pending legal proceedings, asserted legal claims and known potential legal claims which are likely to be asserted, is not reasonably likely to be material to the Company's financial position, results of operations, or cash flows, when taking into account established accruals for estimated liabilities.

Item 1A. Risk Factors

Our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2016, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 15, 2016, contains a detailed discussion of risk factors that could materially adversely affect our business, our operating results or our financial condition. There have been no material changes to the risk factors in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2016.
