The Company's assessment is that there will be a 1 percentage point negative impact on the full year sales comparison from 2011 including 53 weeks under its fiscal calendar versus 2012 including 52 weeks.Segment LevelFull year 2012 local currency sales are expected to be about 1 percent above 2011 in Europe, up by a low double-digit percentage in Asia Pacific, down 1 to 2 percent in Tupperware North America, down about 9 percent in Beauty North America and up in the high 20 percent range in South America.  Pretax return on sales is expected to be down 100 basis points compared with 2011 in Europe, up about  100 basis points in Asia Pacific and Tupperware North America, up a little bit less than 50 basis points in Beauty North America and up close to 150 basis points in South America.*See Non-GAAP Financial Measures Reconciliation Schedules.** The Company classifies Established Market Units as those operating in Western Europe, including Scandinavia, the United States, Canada, Australia and Japan and its remaining units as Emerging Market Units.   + Local currency changes are measured by comparing current year results with those of the prior year translated at the current year's foreign exchange rates.Third Quarter Earnings Conference CallTupperware Brands will conduct a conference call today, Wednesday, October 24, 2012, at 8:30 am Eastern time.  The conference call will be webcast and accessible, along with a copy of this news release, on www.tupperwarebrands.Tupperware Brands Corporation is a portfolio of global direct selling companies, selling innovative, premium products across multiple brands and categories through an independent sales force of 2.8 million.  Product brands and categories include design-centric preparation, storage and serving solutions for the kitchen and home through the Tupperware brand and beauty and personal care products for consumers through the Armand Dupree, Avroy Shlain, BeautiControl, Fuller Cosmetics, NaturCare, Nutrimetics, and Nuvo brands.The Company's stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: TUP). Statements contained in this release, which are not historical fact and use predictive words such as "outlook", "expects" or "target" are forward-looking statements.  These statements involve risks and uncertainties that include recruiting and activity of the Company's independent sales forces, the success of new product introductions and promotional programs, governmental approvals of materials for use in food containers and beauty and personal care products, the success of buyers in obtaining financing or attracting tenants for commercial and residential developments, the effects of economic and political conditions generally and foreign exchange risk in particular and other risks detailed in the Company's periodic reports as filed in accordance with the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  The Company does not intend to update forward-looking information, other than through its quarterly earnings releases, unless it expects diluted earnings per share for the current quarter, excluding items impacting comparability and the impact of changes in foreign exchange rates, to be significantly below its previous guidance.Non-GAAP Financial MeasuresThe Company has utilized non-GAAP financial measures in this release, which are provided to assist readers' understanding of the Company's results of operations. These amounts, identified as items impacting comparability, at times materially impact the comparability of the Company's results of operations. The adjusted information is intended to be indicative of Tupperware Brands' primary operations, and to assist readers in evaluating performance and analyzing trends across periods. The non-GAAP financial measures exclude gains from the sale of property, plant and equipment and insurance settlements, inventory obsolescence in conjunction with decisions to exit or significantly restructure businesses, asset retirement obligations, and re-engineering costs.  Further, while the Company is engaged in a multi-year program to sell land adjacent to its Orlando, Florida headquarters, and also disposes of other excess land and facilities periodically, these activities are not part of the Company's primary business operations.  Additionally, amounts recognized in any given period are not indicative of amounts that may be recognized in any particular future period.   For this reason, these amounts are excluded as indicated.  Further, the Company excludes significant charges related to casualty losses caused by significant weather events, fires or similar circumstances. It also excludes any related gains resulting from the settlement of associated insurance claims. While these types of events can and do recur periodically, they are excluded from indicated financial information due to their distinction from ongoing business operations, inherent volatility and impact on the comparability of earnings across quarters.  Also, the Company periodically records exit costs accounted for using the applicable accounting guidance for exit or disposal cost obligations and other amounts related to rationalizing its supply chain operations and other restructuring activities, including upon liquidation of operations in a country the recognition in income of amounts previously recorded in equity as a cumulative translation adjustment, and believes these amounts are similarly volatile and impact the comparability of earnings across quarters.  Therefore, they are also excluded from indicated financial information to provide what the Company believes represents a useful measure for analysis and predictive purposes.  The Company has also excluded in its non-GAAP measures the expense incurred upon the impairment of its floating to fixed interest swaps and the write off of deferred debt costs in connection with the notes it sold and the new revolving credit agreement that it entered into in June 2011.  The Company believes that excluding from indicated financial information costs incurred in connection with a significant change in its capital structure that is of a nature that would be expected to recur infrequently, also provides a useful measure for analysis and predictive purposes.  The Company has also elected to present financial measures excluding the impact of amortizing the purchase accounting carrying value of certain definite-lived intangible assets, primarily the value of independent sales forces recorded in connection with the Company's December 2005 acquisition of the direct selling businesses of Sara Lee Corporation.  The amortization expense related to these assets will continue for several years; however, based on the Company's current estimates, this amortization will decline as the years progress.  Similarly, in connection with its evaluation of the carrying value of acquired intangible assets and goodwill, the Company has periodically recognized impairment charges.  The Company believes that these types of non-cash charges will not be representative in any single reporting period of amounts recorded in prior reporting periods or expected to be recorded in future reporting periods.  Therefore, they are excluded from indicated financial information to also provide a useful measure for analysis and predictive purposes.As the impact of changes in exchange rates are an important factor in understanding period-to-period comparisons, the Company believes the presentation of results on a local currency basis, in addition to reported results, helps improve readers' ability to understand the Company's operating results and evaluate performance in comparison with prior periods. The Company presents local currency information that compares results between periods as if current period exchange rates had been the exchange rates in the prior period. The Company uses results on a local currency basis as one measure to evaluate performance.   The Company generally refers to such amounts as calculated on a local currency basis, as restated or excluding the impact of foreign currency. These results should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, results reported in accordance with GAAP. Results on a local currency basis may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies and are not measures of performance presented in accordance with GAAP.In information included with this release, the Company has referred to Adjusted EBITDA and a Debt/Adjusted EBITDA ratio which are non-GAAP financial measures used in the Company's credit agreement. The Company uses these measures in its capital allocation decision process and in discussions with investors, analysts and other interested parties and therefore believes it is useful to disclose this amount and ratio. The Company's calculation of these measures is in accordance with its credit agreement, and is set forth in the reconciliation from GAAP amounts in an attachment to this release; however, the reader is cautioned that other companies define these measures in different ways and consequently they will likely not be comparable with similarly labeled amounts disclosed by others.  TUPPERWARE BRANDS CORPORATIONTHIRD QUARTER SALES STATISTICS*(UNAUDITED)All UnitsReportedSalesInc/(Dec)%Restated+SalesInc/(Dec)%ActiveSalesForceInc/(Dec)vs. 3Q '11%TotalSalesForceInc/(Dec)vs. 3Q '11%Europe (7)492,287(2)641,746(1)aAsia Pacific1014227,8296b956,37911TW North America(4)(2)103,375(1)c336,3399Beauty North America(16)(12)281,841(20)539,000(19)South America72397,374(5)d300,64912eTotal All Units(1)6802,706(8)c2,774,1131aEmerging Market UnitsEurope (5)561,358(4)459,396(2)aAsia Pacific1623198,5787b853,34914TW North America81383,71410256,66016Beauty North America (21)(17)247,575(22)446,951(22)South America 72397,374(5)d300,64912eTotal Emerging Market Units 311688,599(8)2,317,0052aEstablished Market UnitsEurope (8)330,9291182,3503Asia Pacific (8)(7)29,251(1)103,030(7)TW North America(13)(13)19,661(30)c79,679(8)Beauty North America 0034,266(1)92,049(4)South America------Total Established Market Units(8)(3)114,107(7)c457,108(3)* Sales force statistics as collected by the Company and, in some cases, provided by distributors and sales force. The company classifies Established Market Units as those operating in Western Europe, including Scandinavia, the United States, Canada, Australia and Japan and its remaining units as Emerging Market Units. Active Sales Force is defined as the average number of people ordering in each cycle over the course of the quarter, and Total Sales Force is defined as the number of sales force members of the units as of the end of the quarter.+ Local currency changes are measured by comparing current year results with those of the prior year translated at the current year's foreign exchange rates.Notesa In the fourth quarter of 2011, the Company sold its Swissgarde unit in South Africa. This had a negative 7, 1, 8 and 2 percentage point impact on the total sales force size comparisons with September 2011 for total Europe, total Company, Europe emerging market units and total Company emerging market units, respectively.b Higher growth in local currency sales than in active sellers reflected higher standards in India and a mix shift toward Indonesia and Malaysia/Singapore that have higher than average productivity, and away from the Philippines that has lower than average productivity.c During the third quarter of 2012, the Company changed its definition of the ordering cycle for Tupperware United States and Canada from monthly to weekly, which had a negative 5, 1, 17 and 4 percentage point impact on the active sales force size comparison of total Tupperware North America, total Company, Tupperware North America established market units and total Company established market units, respectively.d Higher restated sales than active seller increase reflected price increases, along with a mix shift toward the more housewares focused/higher net per unit businesses in Brazil and Venezuela.e The total sales force in South America was up more significantly than the active sales force, primarily from comparisons in Brazil, where changes in qualification levels for awards led to a lower number of higher value orders. There was also a mix shift away from Argentina, which as a beauty and personal care focused unit that operates on a campaign cycle, has a much higher activity rate for its sales force than the segment overall.  TUPPERWARE BRANDS CORPORATIONCONSOLIDATED STATEMENTS OF INCOME(UNAUDITED)(In millions, except per share data)13 Weeks Ended13 Weeks Ended39 Weeks Ended40 Weeks EndedSep 29,Oct 1,Sep 29,Oct
