     About Sunbeam Products, Inc.

     Since the introduction of its first electric appliance in 1910, the
Sunbeam(R) brand has grown to a position of leadership in the consumer goods
industry. The company has made numerous contributions to the industry through
both product innovation and product improvements. Sunbeam's original appliance,
an electric iron, was produced in 1910 to offset the seasonal nature of the

the company brought out the first automatic lawn sprinkler marketed in the
United States. Electric toasters were added in 1922, coffeemakers in 1929, and
the famous Sunbeam(R) Mixmaster stand mixer in 1930. The latter established the
company as a major factor in the small appliance and consumer goods industry.

     Over the years, the company has added many more products to its portfolio
and earned a reputation as an innovator. Sunbeam's product innovations have
included the governor-controlled food mixer, controlled heat immersible fry pan,
cap-type hair dryer, fully automatic radiant controlled toaster, oscillating
blade electric shaver, automatic vacuum-type coffeemaker, and the In2itive(R)
"smart" blender.

a leading global consumer products company that designs, manufactures, and
markets, nationally and internationally, a diverse portfolio of consumer
