Excluding acquisition and restructuring charges as well as other items, earnings climbed to 66 cents per share from 49 cents per share.

Revenue rose 23 percent to $804.6 million from $653.5 million, benefiting from the buyout of appliance maker Russell Hobbs buyout and favorable currency exchange rates.

Spectrum reported sales increases in its global batteries and appliances and global pet supplies segments. Sales for the home and garden business dropped due to bad weather in the U.S.

Spectrum said Thursday that it was maintaining its outlook for full-year revenue to climb 1.5 percent to 2.5 percent.

Wall Street forecasts revenue of $3.18 billion for the year.
