Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.
On March 25, 2015, Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. (“Stanley Black & Decker” or "the Company”) posted supplementary financial information on its website to reflect updated business segment information for the quarterly and year-to-date periods of 2014 and full year 2013. In the first quarter of 2015, the Company combined the Construction & Do-It-Yourself ("CDIY") business with certain complementary elements of the Industrial and Automotive Repair ("IAR") and Healthcare businesses (formerly part of the Industrial and Security segments, respectively) to form one Tools & Storage business with revenues totaling approximately $7 billion. As a result of this change, the legacy CDIY segment has been renamed Tools & Storage. The combination of these businesses is consistent with the Company's strategy to continue to gain market share and consolidate the tool industry. The supplementary financial information includes the normalized business segment information adjusted for the above combination, as reconciled to GAAP adjusted for the above combination, which is considered relevant to aid analysis of the Company’s operating performance aside from the material impact of the merger & acquisition-related charges in the periods presented. A copy of the supplementary financial information is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated in this report as if fully set forth herein.
The information furnished pursuant to this Item 7.01 shall not be deemed filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
