The Outdoor Solutions segment of Jarden Corp. improved its operating profit by 6.0 percent to $103.6 million in the second quarter as its revenues went up by 11.1 percent to $772.8 million. Excluding the positive impact of foreign exchange rates, sales rose by 3 percent on an organic basis. The biggest contribution to the growth came from Coleman's operations in the U.S. and abroad, and by Jarden's team sports, technical and power businesses. At Coleman, sales of tents, coolers and sleeping bags went up considerably, and the brand also benefited from new product introductions and the relief efforts in Japan. On the other hand, Jarden's fishing tackle brands were negatively affected by the Japanese disaster and floods in the U.S. Jarden's total sales rose by 8 percent to $1.7 billion in the quarter. The group's adjusted net profit increased by 5.7 percent to $79.7 billion.
