Holders of Notes that were validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Date and accepted for purchase will receive the Total Consideration, which includes an early tender premium of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of the Notes (the "Early Tender Premium"), plus accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, the Early Settlement Date. The Total Consideration for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes validly tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Date and accepted for purchase will be determined in the manner described in the Offer to Purchase, calculated as of 2:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 5, 2014.

Notes tendered pursuant to the tender offer may no longer be withdrawn, except as required by law (as determined by Newell Rubbermaid.)

The tender offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on December 18, 2014 (such date and time, as it may be extended, the "Expiration Date"), unless extended or earlier terminated. Because the tender offer is fully subscribed as of the Early Tender Date, Holders who validly tender Notes after the Early Tender Date will not have any of their Notes accepted for purchase.
