“We are proud to say that we recaptured our position as the number one toy company globally in each of the last four months through September, according to NPD. We were also the number one toy company in the U.S. and Latin America year-to-date through September. We continued to make progress in reshaping our organization and are actively exploring strategic alternatives for our manufacturing footprint as we move toward a capital-light model. Additionally, we have taken meaningful steps to drive future growth and capitalize on our iconic brands and IP. This includes the creation of a new theatrical film division and a global franchise management organization.”
