HRG Group, Inc. Reports Third Quarter Results Achieves Consolidated Revenue Growth of 17.9% Over the Third Quarter of 2015
NEW YORK - August 9, 2016 -- HRG Group, Inc. (“HRG” or the “Company”; NYSE: HRG), a diversified holding company focused on owning businesses that it believes can, in the long term, generate sustainable free cash flow or attractive returns on investment, today announced its consolidated results for the third quarter of Fiscal 2016 ended on June 30, 2016 (the “Fiscal 2016 Quarter”). The results include HRG's four segments:
Consumer Products, which consists of Spectrum Brands Holdings, Inc. and its subsidiaries (“Spectrum Brands”; NYSE: SPB);
Insurance, which consists of Front Street Re (Delaware) Ltd. and its subsidiaries (“Front Street”);
Energy, which consists of Compass Production Partners, LP and its subsidiaries (“Compass”); and
Asset Management, which consists of Salus Capital Partners, LLC (“Salus”), Energy & Infrastructure Capital, LLC and CorAmerica Capital, LLC.

“HRG reported very strong results this quarter, including the second consecutive quarter of a double digit increase in revenue and a substantial increase in consolidated operating income, which, over the first nine months of this year, has increased almost $830 million as compared to the first nine months of Fiscal 2015,” said Omar Asali, President and Chief Executive Officer of HRG.

“Spectrum Brands reported record third quarter results, with a 9.1% increase in reported net sales, 3.7% growth in organic, currency-consistent sales and an 18.2% increase in Adjusted EBITDA, and we continue to anticipate record levels of annual revenue, Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow from Spectrum in Fiscal 2016,” continued Asali. “In the Energy segment, our recent agreement to sell Compass to a third party eliminates our exposure to the volatility of commodity prices in a transaction that we expect to close before the end of the fiscal year, while over in Asset Management, we continue to simplify its structure and substantially reduce the amount of the receivables outstanding in the Salus loan portfolio.

"With respect to the FGL merger with Anbang, we continue to work closely with Anbang and are engaged with the regulators to secure the required approvals to complete the transaction. Closing this transaction continues to be a priority and we remain committed to closing once the regulatory approval process concludes."

Important Note Regarding the Presentation of our Insurance Segment:
On November 8, 2015, Fidelity & Guaranty Life (“FGL”; NYSE: FGL) and Anbang Insurance Group Co., Ltd. and certain of its subsidiaries ("Anbang") entered into a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which Anbang, subject to satisfaction of applicable closing conditions, will acquire FGL for $26.80 per share in cash. The Company owns 47 million shares in FGL, representing an approximately 80.4% interest as of June 30, 2016. As a result of this agreement, the Company's investment in FGL has been classified as held for sale on the balance sheet and FGL's operations have been classified as discontinued operations. Results for all periods have been reclassified accordingly. FGL's results were previously reflected in the Insurance segment; however, all segment information has been adjusted to exclude FGL's results from this segment. Accordingly, the commentary for the Insurance segment in this release no longer reflects the performance of FGL in either the current or prior year quarters.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2016 Consolidated Highlights:

HRG recorded total revenues of $1.4 billion for the Fiscal 2016 Quarter, an increase of $219.9 million, or 17.9%, as compared to the $1.2 billion recorded in the third quarter of fiscal 2015 (the "Fiscal 2015 Quarter"), as higher Consumer Products revenues, driven primarily by an acquisition completed within the past year and organic revenue growth, as well as higher realized net investment gains, more than offset the impact of both unfavorable foreign exchange as well as lower Energy revenues due to declines in commodity prices and the impact of previously-announced asset sales.
