CHICAGO, July 20 (Reuters) - Jarden Corp JAH.N, maker of Sunbeam appliances and other home products, expects to meet or exceed analysts’ expectations for profit and sales when it reports second-quarter results later this week.

Analysts on average expect Jarden to post a second-quarter profit of 55 cents per share on $1.25 billion in revenue, according to Reuters Estimates.

Jarden, whose other products include Mr. Coffee coffee makers and Bicycle playing cards, plans to release second-quarter results on July 22.
