2 The Company enters into arrangements to provide sales allowances requested by customers relating to cooperative advertising, contractual and negotiated discounts, volume rebates, markdowns, and costs incurred by customers to sell the Company’s products.

3 Operating Margin is calculated as segment Operating Income divided by segment Revenue.

  • Toy revenue decreased by $145.3 million or 26.8% to $396.7 million primarily driven by a decrease in Toy Gross Product Sales1 and an increase in Sales Allowances as a percentage of Toy Gross Product Sales1.
  • Toy Gross Product Sales1 decreased by $148.3 million or 23.6%, to $479.2 million from $627.5 million. Constant Currency Toy Gross Product Sales1 decreased by $129.2 million or 20.6% to $498.3 million, down from $627.5 million.
  • The decline in Toy Gross Product Sales1 was as a result of lower customer orders, as consumer demand was negatively impacted by the pressures of higher inflation, which in turn reduced consumer discretionary spending, as well as the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange. Toy Gross Product Sales1 were positively impacted by price increases implemented to mitigate inflation on product costs and ocean freight. In addition, Toy Gross Product Sales1 in the fourth quarter of 2021 were supported by shipments due to the theatrical releases of Paw Patrol: The Movie and DC Comics The Batman.
  • Sales Allowances increased by $3.0 million or 3.5% to $82.5 million. As a percentage of Toy Gross Product Sales1, Sales Allowances increased by 3.6% to 17.2% from 13.6%, primarily driven by higher markdowns, as consumers were more sensitive to price.
  • Operating Loss was $(43.3) million compared to Operating Income of $14.6 million representing a variance of $(57.9) million.
  • Operating Margin was (10.9)% compared to 2.7%. The decline is due to higher administrative and marketing expenses as a percentage of revenue driven by lower Toy revenue. This was partially offset by improved gross margin from changes in product mix and price increases implemented to offset inflation on product costs and ocean freight. Adjusted EBITDA Margindeclined as a result of lower Operating Margin.
  • Adjusted EBITDA Margin1 was (6.2)% compared to 7.5%.

Management believes the Non-GAAP financial measures and Non-GAAP financial ratios defined above are important supplemental measures of operating performance and highlight trends in the business. Management believes that these measures allow for assessment of the Company’s operating performance and financial condition on a basis that is consistent and comparable between reporting periods. The Company believes that investors, lenders, securities analysts and other interested parties frequently use these Non-GAAP financial measures and Non-GAAP financial ratios in the evaluation of issuers.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Toy Gross Product Sales represent Toy revenues, excluding the impact of Sales Allowances. As Sales Allowances are generally not associated with individual products, the Company uses Toy Gross Product Sales to provide meaningful comparisons across product category and geographical results to highlight trends in Spin Master’s business. For a reconciliation of Toy Gross Product Sales to Revenue, the closest IFRS measure, refer to the revenue tables for the three and year ended December 31, 2022, as compared to the same period in 2021 in this Press Release.

Constant Currency Toy Gross Product Sales, Constant Currency Digital Games Revenue, Constant Currency Revenue, excluding PAW Patrol: The Movie Distribution Revenue and Constant Currency Revenue represent Toy Gross Product Sales, Digital Games revenue, Revenue, excluding PAW Patrol: The Movie Distribution Revenue and Revenue presented excluding the impact from changes in foreign currency exchange rates, respectively. 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. Management uses Constant Currency Toy Gross Product Sales, Constant Currency Digital Games Revenue, Constant Currency Revenue, excluding PAW Patrol: The Movie Distribution Revenue and Constant Currency Revenue to measure the underlying financial performance of the business on a consistent basis over time. Refer to the “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section for a reconciliation of these metrics to Revenue, the closest IFRS measure.

Free Cash Flow is calculated as cash flows provided by/used in operating activities reduced by cash flows used in investing activities and adding back cash used for business acquisitions and investment in limited partnership and Minority interest and other investments, net of investment distribution income. Management uses the Free Cash Flow metric to analyze the cash flows being generated by the Company’s business. In the third quarter of 2021, the calculation of this metric was revised to include the impact of investment distribution income as Management believes this composition to be relevant to investors, lenders, securities analysts and other interested parties of the Company. Refer to the “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section for a reconciliation of this metric to Cash flow from operating activities, the closest IFRS measure.
