This is a founder led company which he likes. The founders started out selling Earth Buddies and Devil Sticks on the street and have built it into an international toy company. This is a fresher IPO, so they don’t have a lot of operating history, but if you can get past that, there is lots of life. They have a lot of growth levers to pull. Just getting started internationally and are not afraid to make acquisitions. Also they are starting to pair TV content with their product launches, which could be pretty powerful. If you have a hit TV show you will have a hit product, or vice versa.

Toy producer. It continues to be super innovative. Has huge brand power. Have a number of relationships with different companies such as Star Wars games, Barbie games, etc. This has been growing phenomenally, both organically and by acquisition. Not super cheap, but growing at a phenomenal rate. Insiders own so much of the stock, the float is not very big, so it does tend to be a little volatile. If you can pick a day or week when it is selling down, you get a chance to get into the premier toy company out of Canada. At some point, the stock is probably going to get taken out.

This was created 20 years ago by 3 extraordinary University boys. They have expanded the company and it has his own internal developers, and they work in close unison with companies like Disney (DIS-N). It is in an expansion mode globally now, which in a sense is cutting out middlemen.

Has a small position, largely because of his success through MegaBrands. There is a scarcity, not only in Canada, but also in North America of listed toy companies. Concerned about ownership concentration. Thinks 3 principles own about 97% of voting shares, which raises some corporate governance issues. It is early days for them, so it is worth paying attention to.

The trouble with toy companies is that at some point you have to evaluate the strength of their underlying products. He initiated a small position in this because it looked interesting and also because there is a scarcity of consumer stocks in Canada.

This company was set up by 3 university students, and the mom of one of them gave them a toy to develop or market. Out of that, 20 years ago, they have company which is now closing in on $1 billion in revenue. It has just gone public and has some very creative aspects. Like tech has all these developers they use, this company is in touch with creators of toys. Not expensive.
