Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.
On January 7, 2013, Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. (Stanley Black & Decker) posted supplementary financial information on its website to reflect quarterly and year-to-date operating results and business segment information for the first three quarters of 2012 and quarterly and annual 2011 excluding the results of the Hardware & Home Improvement Group (HHI), which was sold to Spectrum Brands Holdings on December 17, 2012. HHI has been excluded from the continuing operations of Stanley Black & Decker and the net of its operations, as well as the related gain on the sale, will be reported as a discontinued operation. The supplementary financial information includes the normalized operating results and business segment information adjusted for the HHI divestiture, as reconciled to GAAP adjusted for the HHI divestiture, which is considered relevant to aid analysis of the Companys operating performance aside from the material impact of the merger & acquisition-related charges in the periods presented as well as charges associated with the loss on extinguishment of debt that occurred in the third quarter of 2012. A copy of the supplementary financial information is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated in this report as if fully set forth herein.
The information furnished pursuant to this Item 7.01 shall not be deemed filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
