"For the second consecutive quarter each segment produced year over year organic growth, led by an exceptional performance in our Outdoor Solutions business with 8.5% organic growth. This broad-based growth was fueled by shelf space gains and strong sell-through on the back of a record level of new product introductions. Our record second quarter segment earnings of $192 million is the result of our continuing significant investment in our brands, which we believe will further strengthen our long-term growth potential."

The integration of Mapa Spontex has helped accelerate our international expansion. Retail customers have begun to recognize our acclaimed domestic operating reputation on an international basis, which we believe will enhance our ability to become category leaders in a number of developing markets.
