Mega Brands : les résultats T4 et année 2013

Mega Brands a publié ce matin les résultats du groupe pour le quatrième trimestre 2014 et pour l’année entière. Moins d’une semaine après l’annonce du rachat de Mega par Mattel (lire notre article), jetons un œil aux chiffres de vente du fabricant canadien.

[English readers, please scroll down for the original press release]

Sur l’année 2013, les ventes de Mega ont diminué (-4% par rapport à 2012, à 404,7 millions de dollars contre 420 millions en 2012) principalement dans le secteur du jouet (-5%) et un peu moins dans la papeterie (-1%). Le dernier trimestre 2013 semble porter une lourde responsabilité dans ces chiffres puisqu’au cours de cette période les ventes de jouets du groupe ont diminué de 24% et celles des loisirs créatifs/papeterie seulement de 3%, conduisant à une baisse de 21% du chiffre d’affaires de Mega Brands sur le dernier trimestre 2013 par rapport à l’année précédente (qui fut très bonne).

Le bénéfice avant impôt (EBITDA) perd 2 millions sur l’année (à 47 millions contre 49 millions)
et 5 millions sur le seul dernier trimestre (8,9 millions au T4 2013 contre 13,9 au T4 2012) !
La gamme MEGA BLOKS First Builders a cependant connu une croissance record et la gamme pour collectionneurs Call of Duty a connu le meilleur lancement tous produits Mega Bloks confondus. Selon NPD, Call of Duty était la nouvelle marque la plus vendu dans les jeux de construction au dernier trimestre et ce en dépit d’une disponibilité limitée.

Le gros de l’actualité du groupe Mega Brands en 2013 est finalement financier : réduction drastique de la dette (-48%) par rapport à fin 2012, trésorerie doublée à 16,4millions et capital non consommé. La société sort aussi d’un cycle d’investissement qui a duré trois ans au cours desquels plus de 30 millions de dollars ont été injectés dans l’unité de Montréal pour augmenter la productivité et la production.

MEGA Brands reports fourth quarter and 2013 results
 

MONTREAL, March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – MEGA Brands Inc. (TSX: MB) announced today its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2013. (All figures are expressed in US dollars.)

Full year 2013

  • Consolidated net sales decreased 4% to $404.7 million in 2013, compared to $420.3 million in 2012.
  • Net earnings increased 25% to $20.8 million or $0.93 per diluted share, compared to $16.6 million or $0.84 per diluted share in 2012.

Net sales decreased 5% in the Toys segment while net sales for Stationery & Activities increased 1%. On a geographic segment basis, net sales decreased 3% in North America and 5% in International. Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ( »EBITDA ») was $47.0 million compared to $49.2 million in 2012.

Fourth quarter

  • Consolidated net sales decreased 21% to $101.2 million, compared to $127.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.
  • Net earnings were $1.4 million or $0.04 per diluted share, compared to $4.0 million or $0.01 per diluted share in the same 2012 period.

Net sales were down 24% in the Toys segment and 3% in Stationery & Activities. On a geographic segment basis, North American net sales decreased 20% and International net sales decreased 23%. Adjusted EBITDA was $8.9 million compared to $13.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Adjusted EBITDA is a supplementary financial measure and readers are cautioned that this measures does not have standardized meaning and is unlikely to be comparable to similar measures used by other issuers.

Several factors contributed to the decline in the Corporation’s fourth quarter shipments, including a difficult retail environment which affected the performance of the entire toy industry, particularly in products for boys. The Corporation also faced a difficult comparison with the fourth quarter of 2012, which saw an 18% net sales increase compared to the previous year.

2013 highlights
The MEGA BLOKS First Builders product line had a year of record growth and the retail performance of the Call of Duty line equaled or bettered the sell through of any previous MEGA BLOKS product launch. According to NPD Group, the Call of Duty product line was the top-selling new brand in the construction toy category during the fourth quarter despite limited availability.

The Corporation ended 2013 in a strong financial position, with long-term debt reduced 48% to $59.3 million compared to $113.0 million at the end of 2012, cash on hand of $16.4 million compared to $8.0 million the previous year, and no borrowings against our working capital facility. The Corporation also completed a three-year program during which it invested over $30 million to increase efficiency and production capacity in its Montreal facility.
