HRG Group Inc is a diversified holding company. It provides consumer products including batteries, personal care products, household appliances, pet supplies, and home & garden pest control products, as well as life insurance and annuity products.

HRG Group Inc was incorporated in Delaware in 1954 under the name Zapata Corporation and reincorporated in Nevada in April 1999 under the same name. Its principal operations are conducted through Spectrum Brands, its majority owned subsidiary that provides branded consumer products such as batteries, personal care products, small household appliances, pet supplies and home and garden pest control products, and FGL, its wholly-owned indirect subsidiary that provides life insurance and annuity products. The Spectrum Brands' broad line of products includes: consumer batteries, including alkaline and zinc carbon batteries, rechargeable batteries and chargers and hearing aid batteries, other specialty batteries and portable lighting products; small appliances, including small kitchen appliances and home product appliances; pet supplies, including aquatic equipment and supplies, dog and cat treats, small animal foods, clean up and training aids, health and grooming products and bedding; home and garden control products, including household insect controls, insect repellents and herbicides; electric shaving and grooming devices; and electric and wet personal care and styling devices. It operates its business in four reporting segments: Consumer Products, Insurance, Energy and Asset Management. Its raw materials include zinc, electrolytic manganese dioxide, brass and steel. Due to the nature of Spectrum Brands' operations, Spectrum Brands' facilities are subject to a broad range of federal, state, local and foreign legal and regulatory provisions relating to the environment, including those regulating the discharge of materials into the environment, the handling and disposal of solid and hazardous substances and wastes and the remediation of contamination associated with the releases of hazardous substances at its facilities.

Guru Investment Theses on HRG Group Inc

Leucadia National Comments on HRG Group Inc. - Feb 25, 2016

We continue to own 23% (46.6 million shares) of HRG Group (NYSE:HRG) acquired between September 2013 and November 2014 at an average cost of $10.21 per share versus a $13.56 per share stock price at year-end 2015. Our incredible Chairman, Joe Steinberg, serves as Chairman of HRG and is on the Boards of its major business units. The vast majority of HRG Group’s value is accounted for by its ownership in Spectrum Brands (58%) and Fidelity & Guaranty Life (81%). Spectrum, a diversified global branded consumer products company, had its sixth consecutive year of record financial performance growing adjusted free cash flow from $359 million in 2014 to $454 million in 2015. With the May 21, 2015 acquisition of Armored AutoGroup, which includes brands Armor All and STP, Spectrum is now a player in the global auto care market and expects to grow free cash flow to $505 million in 2016. On November 8, 2015, Fidelity agreed to be acquired by Anbang Insurance Group for $1.57 billion, or $26.80 per share, a 29% premium over Fidelity’s unaffected stock price. The sale is expected to be completed in the second quarter, with a substantial portion of HRG’s proceeds from the sale expected to be used to pay down debt at HRG. We believe that this sale of Fidelity, combined with the additional sale of other assets, may help to close the ongoing gap between HRG’s share price and the sum of the value of its various parts.
