ATLANTA, Ga. - Spectrum Brands, Inc. (the "Company") (OTC: SPCB) today announced that arrangements for the transition of trading of the Company's common stock from the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") to the OTC market have been completed.

Trading on the NYSE and the Company's trading symbol "SPC" will be suspended as of the opening of the market on Monday, December 22, 2008. Effective at the opening of the market on Monday, December 22, 2008, the Company's common stock will be traded in the OTC market and quoted on the Pink Sheet Electronic Quotation Service under the symbol "SPCB."

The Company noted that the transition of the trading of its common stock to the OTC market is not expected to have a direct impact on the current operation of its businesses and is not expected to cause a default under any of its credit agreements. Additionally, the transition to the OTC market will have no direct effect on the shares themselves or the Company's registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission. This transition to the OTC will not effect the record status of holders of record of Spectrum Brands' common stock.
