  • Adjusted EBITDA Margin1 was 19.0% compared to 14.5%.

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 months and year ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the same period in 2021 in this Press Release.

Constant Currency Toy Gross Product Sales, Constant Currency Digital Games Revenue and Constant Currency Revenue represent Toy Gross Product Sales, Digital Games 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 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.

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.
