Jarden swings to profit in Q4, FY ‘09

After a steep year-ago loss, Jarden (NYSE: JAH), parent of Coleman, K2 and Marmot, swung to a profit for the fourth quarter. It also noted that it expects sales growth in each of its units in 2010.

For the quarter ended Dec. 31, net income was $1.2 million, or $0.01 per share, from a year-ago net loss of $170 million, or $2.28 per share.

Excluding a non-cash impairment charge against goodwill and intangible assets of $22.9 million, the company said adjusted net income was $68.5 million, or $0.77 per share. In the year-ago period, that impairment charge was $283 million.

Revenue rose 3 percent to $1.35 billion.

For the full year, net income was $129 million, or $1.52 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $58.9 million, or $0.78 per share in 2008. Sales dropped 4 percent to $5.2 billion compared to $5.4 billion in 2008.

The company said it expects "healthy organic sales growth" in each of its three consumer segments in 2010. It anticipates sales growth of 2 percent to 4 percent in 2010, excluding currency exchange swings and changes in commodities prices.
