Operational Initiatives Show Strong Progress

TORONTO, Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ - Spin Master Corp. ("Spin Master" or the "Company") (TSX: TOY) (www.spinmaster.com), a leading global children's entertainment company, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020. The Company's full Management's Discussion and Analysis ("MD&A") for the three and six month ended June 30, 2020 is available on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) and posted on the Company's web site at www.spinmaster.com/financial-info.php.

"This quarter we demonstrated meaningful progress towards resolving the operational challenges we experienced in 2019" said Ronnen Harary, Spin Master's Co-Chief Executive Officer.  "We are incredibly proud of the global Spin Master team, who remained focused on driving improvements across the company, while also managing through the complexity of COVID-19 for the full quarter.  Our performance in the second quarter, which showed strong POS across most of our key brands, highlights the resilience of the toy industry, the strength of our diversified portfolio of brands, entertainment franchises and digital toys and our global platform.  This is underpinned by our strong financial base, which positions us well for long term success. Looking forward, global economies are reopening but risk remains elevated and we are taking a cautiously optimistic approach to the second half. New opportunities continue to emerge, and we are prepared to take advantage as they arise."

"Our overall performance in the second quarter was stronger than expected, despite the disruption from COVID-19" said Mark Segal, Spin Master's Chief Financial Officer. "Our global supply chain team responded well to the evolving environment and we made significant progress from an operational efficiency, profitability and cash flow perspective relative to Q1. Our financial position remains solid and we continue to have substantial liquidity available. As the year progresses, we will continue to focus on strengthening our core in order to build and maintain an efficient, high margin and sustainable global platform positioned for long term growth."

  • Gross Product Sales1 decreased by 10.9% to US$282.2 million from US$316.8 million. In Constant Currency1 terms, Gross Product Sales1 decreased by 12.0%. Decreases in Pre-School & Girls, Boys Action & Construction and Remote Control & Interactive Characters were offset by increases in Activities, Games, Puzzles & Plush, as well as Outdoor.

  • Sales Allowances1 increased by US$3.4 million to US$29.6 million, primarily driven by an increase in non-compliance charges resulting from the operational challenges which arose in the second half of 2019, partially offset by a change in geographic mix due to higher sales in North America relative to Europe. As a percentage of Gross Product Sales1, Sales Allowances1 increased 2.2% to 10.5% from 8.3%.
  • Gross profit was US$118.2 million, representing 42.0% of revenue, compared to US$164.3 million or 51.2% of revenue. The decline in gross margin was primarily due to unfavourable changes in product mix, higher Sales Allowances and inbound in freight-related expenses and costs incurred as a result of the Company's ongoing operational improvement initiatives.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A)2 declined 16.6%. As a percentage of revenue SG&A2 expenses were 40.8%, compared to 42.9%. The improvement was primarily driven by lower marketing costs, partially offset by higher warehouse and outbound freight costs.
  • Net loss was US$14.9 million or loss per share of US$0.15, compared to net income of US$10.2 million or earnings per share of US$0.10 (diluted).
  • Adjusted Net Loss1 was US$9.5 million or loss per share of US$0.09, compared to Adjusted Net Income1 of US$19.8 million or earnings per share of US$0.19 (diluted).

Non-IFRS Financial Measures

In addition to using financial measures prescribed under IFRS, references are made in this Press Release to "EBITDA", "Adjusted EBITDA", "Adjusted EBITDA Margin", "Adjusted Net (Loss) Income", "Free Cash Flow", "Gross Product Sales", "Constant Currency", "Sales Allowances" and "Total Net Sales" which are non-IFRS financial measures. Non-IFRS financial measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers.

EBITDA is calculated as net (loss) earnings before finance costs, income tax expense and depreciation and amortization.

Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as EBITDA excluding normalization adjustments, non-recurring items that do not necessarily reflect the Company's underlying financial performance. Normalization adjustments include restructuring costs, foreign exchange gains or losses, and equity-settled share based compensation expenses. Adjusted EBITDA is used by management as a measure of the Company's profitability.

Adjusted Net (Loss) Income is calculated as net (loss) income excluding adjustments, as defined above, in addition to a one-time tax recovery and the corresponding impact these items have on income tax expense. Management uses Adjusted Net (Loss) Income to measure the underlying financial performance of the business on a consistent basis over time.

Constant Currency represents Revenue and Gross Product Sales results that are presented excluding the impact from changes in foreign currency exchange rates. The current period and prior period results for entities reporting in currencies other than the US dollar are translated using consistent exchange rates, rather than using the actual exchange rate in effect during the respective periods. The difference between the current period and prior period results using the consistent exchange rates reflects the changes in the underlying performance results, excluding the impact from fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates.

Free Cash Flow is calculated as cash flows provided by/used in operating activities before changes in net working capital and after cash flows used in investing activities before cash used in license, brand and business acquisitions. Management uses the Free Cash Flow metric to analyze the cash flow being generated by the Company's business.

Gross Product Sales represent sales of the Company's products to customers, excluding the impact of Sales Allowances. As Sales Allowances are generally not associated with individual products, the Company uses changes in Gross Product Sales to provide meaningful comparisons across product category and geographical segment results to highlight trends in Spin Master's business. For a reconciliation of Gross Product Sales to Revenue, please see the table "Q2 2020 Gross Product Sales by Business Segment" in this Press Release.

Sales Allowances represent marketing and sales credits requested by customers relating to factors such as cooperative advertising, contractual discounts, negotiated discounts, customer audits, volume rebates, defective products and costs incurred by customers to sell the Company's products and are recorded as a reduction to Gross Product Sales. Management uses Sales Allowances to identify and compare the cost of doing business with individual retailers, different geographic markets and amongst various distribution channels.

Total Net Sales represents Gross Product Sales less Sales Allowances. Management uses Total Net Sales to evaluate the Company's total net revenue generating capacity compared to internal targets and as a measure of Company performance.

Management believes the non-IFRS measures defined above are important supplemental measures of operating performance and highlight trends in the core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS financial measures. Management believes that these measures allow for assessment of the Company's operating performance and financial condition on a basis that is more consistent and comparable between reporting periods. The Company believes that lenders, securities analysts, investors and other interested parties frequently use these non-IFRS financial measures in the evaluation of issuers.
