  1. FISCAL 2014 SALES OBJECTIVES May 12, 2014

  2. The Selling Season …. During the next 90 days we have a long to do list: • Complete MIT line reviews for Spring 2015 shipment • Price increase communication on MIT and T&H • Line review on Inside Out – launch planning • Fall 2015 Planning and previews • Miles from Tomorrowland • The Good Dinosaur • Core line and licenses

  3. A Strong Start …. We began the year with a soft start … • April was very weak on the back half of month. • May looks stronger – but we need to close the deal. • June looks very good -- but not much in order book. Moving into Q2 at or above plan – puts us in good shape to realize our margin enhancement objectives.

  4. Sales Plan for 2014 • Plan for Americas is $311M • Compares to $294M in ‘13 – 5.7% increase • Margin change from 50% to 50.5% • Balanced plan – reasonable objectives

  5. For MIT Three Primary Goals… • Drive sales in focus categories: • Licensed Toddler Feeding $25.0 – 19.2 +30% • Bath & Potty $19.2 – 18.5 +4% • Specialty Brands $54.7 – 51.2 +6.9 • Use brand portfolio and product assortment to address opportunity across all channels • Drive margin from 46.1% to 46.9

  6. For T&H Two Primary Goals… • Build on our base of core brands: • John Deere $86 -- $88 • Pokémon $10.9 -- $14.4 • Chuggington $9.7 -- $11 • Battroborg $15 -- $20.5 • Sell in our new Disney / Pixar brands • Inside Out / Miles / The Good Dinosaur

  7. Wrap up price increase • Objective is to affect a 3% net price increase in top 15 customers by June 30th. • As our costs rise – we have no choice • Individual plans per customer • Part of overall change in pricing execution.

  8. Give Away Less … • At 7% of Sales -- R&A represents over $25 million in payments to customers each year. • Objective is to reduce spending as a percentage of sales by 1.5% • Challenge is that about 4% of R&A is “Fixed” • 1.5% represents a significant reduction in “over & above” funding / promotions / etc. • Budget process vs. open end

  9. Keeping Score .. • Price change & RA budget integrated into scorecard process for sales managers • Track success against objectives monthly

  10. Everyday is a Line Review • Until we hit 100% distribution – everyday is an opportunity to improve assortment and drive sales. • We can’t be content to “manage our set” we need to drive our business.

  11. Stop talking – Start doing • We have talked about improved focus and profitability before – 2014 is the time for action. • No one sits on the bench for this game – everyone plays the whole game. • We succeed as a team.

  12. Walmart US Sales History/Forecast Current 2014 YTD Trade Margin: 43.9%(Toy 46.8% and MIT 43.6%) F2013 R/A %: 3.1% (Toy 3.8% and MIT 2.8%)

  13. Walmart US -Toy & Hobby - 2014 Opportunity • Pokemon – distribution within 2 ft statement of collectible section at front end of store from Sept ‘14 to March ‘15 ($5M) • John Deere Core – Q4 tab placement of 70 pc value set ($250k) • John Deere Gear Force – new launch within precool aisle ($2-3M) • Dot com – align and execute to at least a 10% share and 30% growth vs. 2013 for store listings Challenge • Battroborg – year two with Warrior/TMNT product mix projected at $3.2M shipments vs. generation one shipments of $5.8M with a 70% sell-thru (gap of $700k vs. budget and $2.3M vs. LY) 2. Replenishment – timing of corporate holiday seasonal policies for toys 3. Chuggington – lack of store distribution in Fall ‘14 / reduction of space in train aisle

  14. Walmart US - MIT- 2014 • Opportunity • Disney licensed infant products – partner with Disney BV team to secure multiple features and tab for cups, potties, booster seats ($4M) • 2. Execute incremental business opportunities with Lamaze toys, JJ Cole travel program, Walmart Baby Registry, TFY rebrand re-launch ($2M). • 3. Price increase to improve overall profit margin (in particular tubs). • Challenge • 1. Walmart corporate replenishment strategies and team turnover (year 2 of new GRS system). • 2. Decline in sales performance of Bumbo floor seat and topline sales of existing gear business (total of $2M). • 3. Impact of price increases on product placement and performance.

  15. Walmart US -- Margin Enhancement • Price increases on both sides of business. • 2. New placement of higher margin items. • Reduce the number of low margin item features in MIT. • More focused rollback strategy and import shipment option in toys. Price Increase Goal: Stretch Goal • 1. New product placement and performance (i.e. Pokemon in front end of store). • 2. Store count expansion of Travel and JJ Cole test programs. • 3. TFY Brand relaunch impact.

  16. Walmart Canada Sales History/Forecast Current 2014 YTD Trade Margin: 41.5% (Toy 39.8% and MIT 41.7%) F2013 R/A %: 11.2% (Toy 5.7% and MIT 12.5%)

  17. Walmart Canada -Toy & Hobby - 2014 Opportunity • Pokemon – distribution within boys aisle (60% of total in 2013) • John Deere – align to US success and Sept TV advertising campaign (39% of total in 2013) • Market share growth with Target Canada poor launch execution Challenge • Battroborg – lack of placement even with US success and buyer help 2. Chuggington – lack of distribution in Fall ‘14 / TV show coverage on Treehouse

  18. Walmart Canada - MIT- 2014 • Opportunity • Toddler feeding – expand Take & Toss to all stores and add TFY insulated cups (current overall business is 80% non licensed) • 2. Licensed feeding – expand Disney offerings with additional characters in insulated cups and add open stock bowls / plates per US success • Travel – develop product program based on Canada channel strategy and US Fleurville distribution • Import shipments in US $’s – competitive vendors are shifting full programs to overcome currency risk and high costs of distribution / tariffs • Challenge • 1. Mature retailer market – no retail is providing significant growth with poor Target launch; vendors are being aggressive with Walmart • 2. Continue expansion of Tommy Tippee and private label in most categories • 3. Infant feeding – breast pump business down 17% YTD (represents 44% of total business)

  19. Walmart Canada -- Margin Enhancement • Price increases on both sides of business. • 2.

  21. TARGET-Toy & Hobby - 2014 Opportunity • Rollout of Chuggington items to entire chain • Pokémon success through Excell could lead to additional items placed during fall season. We’re averaging $65k-$70k per week with 3 sku’s • Battroborg and Chuggington featured in Target Holiday Toy Catalog • 55% of Chuggington play sets and 70% of Battroborg already on order import • Partnering with Anchor Bay on an in-store Chuggington promotion and increase circular exposure Challenge • Sales are only across 3 lines. If one of these don’t perform, it will pull down the number. Any softness early on could cause Target to cancel import orders • Target has de-valued in-stocks during holiday season with a focus on profitability and inventory reduction. With Chuggington being a new line, they will be less likely to extend themselves • Continued erosion of market share due to decreased store traffic will have a negative effect on the entire department

  22. TARGET-- MIT- 2014 Opportunity • Baby 360 rollout to 180 stores offers opportunity to see increased sales in these locations. • Continue to grow the Disney toddler feeding in excess of Playtex levels from last year. • Continued focus on in-stocks despite Target’s decreased focus. Currently, our in-stocks are 96% vs. 90% LY Challenge • Decreased stores traffic continues to affect overall Target sales • Change in market dynamics in the breast feeding business has negatively effected Target and TOMY sales (ACA) • News buyers in the department (4 of 5 have less than 1 year within the dept) • Loss of JJ Cole business ($2.3M) and Gear ($800K) need to be made up in other categories

  23. TARGET-- Margin Enhancement • Reduced policy accrual 2% for TFY MIT and 1% T&H (Target) & 2% T&H (.com) • Reduced spending on Target Baby catalog from $250,000 - $150,000 • Analyzing all TPC’s to ensure they drive a positive ROI • Continue to fight all post-audit claims.
