The Company also announced the pricing of its previously announced common stock offering at $55.00 per share. The size of the common stock offering was increased from 4,000,000 shares to 5,000,000 shares. The Company also granted the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 750,000 shares of common stock at the public offering price less the underwriting discount. The common stock offering is expected to close on March 18, 2014, subject to customary closing conditions.

The Notes were offered as additional notes under an existing indenture pursuant to which the Company previously issued $525 million in aggregate principal amount of 6.75% senior notes due 2021 (the "Existing Notes"). The Notes to be issued in this offering will vote together with and will constitute part of the same series as the Existing Notes. The Notes will be unsecured unsubordinated obligations of the Company and will be guaranteed by the Company's domestic subsidiaries.

The common stock offering and the Notes offering are being conducted as separate offerings. Neither offering is contingent upon the other. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the proposed offerings for general corporate purposes, which could include, among other things, financing the pending PowerBar and Musashi acquisition and financing additional acquisition opportunities, working capital and capital expenditures.

Barclays Capital Inc., Goldman, Sachs & Co., Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC are serving as book-running managers for the common stock offering. BMO Capital Markets Corp., Nomura Securities International, Inc., Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Incorporated and SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, Inc. are serving as co-managers for the common stock offering. Barclays Capital Inc. and Goldman, Sachs & Co. will serve as representatives of the underwriters for the common stock offering.

The Notes and the related subsidiary guarantees are being offered in the United States to qualified institutional buyers in an offering exempt from registration pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and to persons outside the United States in compliance with Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes and the related subsidiary guarantees have not been registered under the Securities Act, or any state securities laws, and unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.

The common stock is being offered by the Company pursuant to a Form S-3 shelf registration statement (including a base prospectus) previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
