Martin E. Franklin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Despite questions about the economy and consumers, we believe that the more time consumers spend at home the better it is for Jarden."
Franklin said the company's Outdoor Solutions segment showed strong sales in the first half of the year and will present new products into 2007. "The healthy momentum in all of our segments, despite continued pressure on supply chain costs, continued through the second quarter," he said. "This momentum positions us well for the back half of the year and on track to achieve our long-term financial goals."
