June 13, 2014

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

On June 12, 2014, CCMP Capital Advisors, LLC ("CCMP") and The Hillman Companies, Inc. (the "Company") announced that HMAN Finance Sub Corp. (the "Issuer") has priced a private offering of $330.0 million in aggregate principal amount of its 6.375% senior notes due 2022 (the "Notes"). The aggregate principal amount of the Notes was increased from $270.0 million, as previously disclosed, to $330.0 million. In connection with the pricing of the Notes, the Issuer and HMAN Intermediate Finance Sub Corp. entered into a senior notes purchase agreement on June 12, 2014. The Notes are being offered only to qualified institutional buyers in accordance with Rule 144A and to non-U.S. persons under Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act") and will not be registered under the Securities Act following the closing of the offering of the Notes. The offering is expected to close on or about June 30, 2014, subject to customary closing conditions including, without limitation, the closing of the Acquisition as described below. The net proceeds from the offering, together with other funding sources, will be used to fund the previously announced acquisition of the Company by affiliates of CCMP (the "Acquisition"), repay certain existing indebtedness of the Company and to pay related fees and expenses. The Acquisition is expected to be consummated prior to or concurrently with the closing of the offering.

The Issuer was formed for the purpose of issuing the Notes and, immediately subsequent to the Acquisition, will be merged with and into The Hillman Group, Inc., the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, which will be the surviving corporation, and will assume the obligations of the Issuer under the Notes by operation of law.

The Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and, unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. This disclosure is not an offer to buy or a solicitation of an offer to sell any Notes or other securities.

The press release with respect to the foregoing is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

The information furnished in this Item 7.01 - "Regulation FD Disclosure" of this Current Report on Form 8-K shall not be deemed "filed" for the purpose of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of such section, and shall not be deemed to be incorporated by reference into the filings of the Company under the Securities Act or the Exchange Act.
