BUSINESS - ------- -------- The Company designs, develops, manufactures, markets and distributes a broad variety of toy products on a worldwide basis. The Company's four strongest principal product lines are BARBIE fashion dolls and doll clothing and accessories, FISHER-PRICE toys and juvenile products, the Company's Disney-licensed toys and die-cast HOT WHEELS vehicles, each of which has broad worldwide appeal. Additional current principal product lines consist of POWER WHEELS battery-powered ride-on vehicles; large dolls; preschool toys, including SEE 'N SAY talking toys; and the UNO and SKIP-BO games. Revenues for 1994 of $3.2 billion were a record level for the Company. In May 1994, the Company completed the acquisition of the assets of Kransco, Inc. ("Kransco" and the "Kransco Acquisition"), and in July 1994, the Company completed the acquisition of J.W. Spear & Sons PLC ("Spear" and the "Spear Acquisition"). Products acquired from Kransco include POWER WHEELS battery-powered ride-on vehicles, HULA HOOP and FRISBEE products marketed under the WHAM-O trademark and MOREY BOOGIE bodyboards and other water sport toys. Spear is a British company that holds the rights to SCRABBLE and other games outside of North America. See Note 7 to the Consolidated Financial Statements in the Annual Report to Shareholders for the year ended December 31, 1994 (the "Annual Report to Shareholders"), incorporated herein by reference. As used herein, unless the context requires otherwise, "Mattel" or the "Company" refers to Mattel, Inc., and its subsidiaries, and "Fisher-Price" refers to Fisher-Price, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of Mattel. Mattel was incorporated in California in 1948 and reincorporated in Delaware in 1968. Its executive offices are located at 333 Continental Boulevard, El Segundo, California 90245-5012, telephone (310) 252-2000. COMPETITION AND INDUSTRY BACKGROUND - ----------------------------------- Competition in the toy industry is based primarily on price, quality and play value. In recent years, the toy industry has experienced rapid consolidation driven, in part, by the desire of industry competitors to offer a range of products across a broader variety of categories. In the United States, the Company competes with several large toy companies, including Hasbro, Inc. and Tyco Toys, Inc. as well as a number of smaller toy companies. The larger toy companies have pursued a strategy of focusing on core product lines. Core product lines are those lines which are expected to be marketed for an extended period of time, and which historically have provided relatively consistent growth in sales and profitability. By focusing on core product lines, toy manufacturers have been able to reduce their reliance on new product introductions and the associated risk and volatility. The 2 juvenile products market, in which Fisher-Price is one of the leading companies, is more fragmented. The more significant competitors in this area include: Gerry Baby Products Company; Century Products Company; Graco Children's Products, Inc.; Cosco, Inc.; and Evenflo Juvenile Furniture Company, Inc. The toy industry is also experiencing a shift toward greater consolidation of retail distribution channels, such as large specialty toy stores and discount retailers, including Toys R Us, Wal-Mart, Kmart and Target, which have increased their overall share of the retail market. This consolidation has resulted in an increased reliance among retailers on the large toy companies because of their financial stability and ability to support products through advertising and promotion and to distribute products on a national basis. These retailers' growing acceptance of electronic data interchange has provided toy manufacturers with an ability to more closely monitor consumers' acceptance of a particular product or product line. Over the last ten years, toy companies based in the United States have expanded their international marketing and manufacturing operations. The Company believes a strong international distribution system can add significantly to the sales volume of core product lines and extend the life cycles of newly-developed products. SEASONALITY - ----------- Sales of toy products at retail are seasonal, with a majority of retail sales occurring during the period from September through December. Consequently, shipments of toy products to retailers are greater in the third and fourth quarters than in each of the first and second quarters combined. As the large toy retailers become more efficient in their control of inventory levels, this seasonality is likely to increase. In anticipation of this seasonal increase in retail sales, the Company significantly increases its production in advance of the peak selling period, resulting in a corresponding build-up of inventory levels. In addition, the Company and others in the industry develop sales programs, including offering extended payment terms, to encourage retailers to purchase merchandise earlier in the year. These sales programs, coupled with seasonal shipping patterns, result in significant peaks in the third and fourth quarters in the respective levels of inventories and accounts receivable, which contribute to a seasonal working capital financing requirement. See "Seasonal Financing." 3 PRODUCTS - -------- The Company has been able to record consistent sales and earnings growth by focusing on a number of core product lines supplemented by various new product introductions. The Company's four strongest core product lines are BARBIE fashion dolls and doll clothing and accessories, FISHER-PRICE toys and juvenile products, the Company's Disney-licensed toys and die-cast HOT WHEELS vehicles, each of which has broad worldwide appeal. Additional current principal product lines consist of POWER WHEELS battery-powered ride-on vehicles; large dolls; preschool toys, including SEE 'N SAY talking toys; and the UNO and SKIP-BO games. Core product lines are expected to be marketed for an extended period of time and historically have provided relatively consistent growth in sales and profitability. For the year ended December 31, 1994, core products accounted for approximately 84% of sales. In order to provide greater flexibility in the manufacture and delivery of products, and as part of a continuing effort to reduce manufacturing costs, the Company has concentrated production of most of its core products in Company-owned facilities and generally uses independent contractors for the production of non-core products. In September 1994, the Company entered into a License Agreement with Original Appalachian Artworks, Inc. pursuant to which the Company obtained the exclusive worldwide rights to manufacture, sell and distribute dolls, doll accessories and doll clothing bearing the CABBAGE PATCH KIDS trademark beginning in January 1995. With respect to new product introductions, the Company's strategy is to begin production on a limited basis until a product's initial success has been proven in the marketplace. The production schedule is then modified to meet anticipated demand. The Company further limits its risk by generally having independent contractors manufacture new product lines in order to minimize capital expenditures associated with new product introductions. This strategy has reduced inventory risk and significantly limited the potential loss associated with new product introductions. New product introductions in 1994 included the 35th anniversary BARBIE doll, the gymnast BARBIE doll and the DR. BARBIE doll, the addition of a series of plush products, action figures and small dolls based on the animated feature "The Lion King" to the Company's Disney line, the Fisher- Price 3-in-1 Tournament Table and the addition of the TOP SPEED line of vehicles to the Company's HOT WHEELS line. New product introductions in 1995 will include Cut 'N Style BARBIE, Baywatch BARBIE and Butterfly Princess BARBIE, CABBAGE PATCH KIDS, the addition of MICRO vehicles to the HOT WHEELS line, Fisher-Price outdoor play equipment and the addition of a series of plush products, action figures and small dolls based on the animated feature "Pocahontas" to the Company's Disney line. The Company will also introduce Nickelodeon SMUD. 4 INTERNATIONAL OPERATIONS - ------------------------ Revenues from the Company's international operations represented approximately 41%, 40% and 41% of total consolidated revenues in 1994, 1993 and 1992, respectively. Products which are developed and marketed successfully in the United States typically generate incremental sales and profitability when marketed through the Company's international distribution network. Generally, products marketed internationally are the same as those marketed domestically, although some are developed or adapted for particular international markets. The Company sells its products directly through its marketing operations in Argentina, Australia, Austria, the Benelux countries, Canada, Chile, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Portugal, Scandinavia, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Venezuela and in certain areas of Eastern Europe and Asia. In 1995, the Company will begin selling its products directly in Colombia through a newly established subsidiary. In addition to direct sales, the Company sells principally through distributors in Central and South America, the Middle East, South Africa and Southeast Asia. It also licenses some of its products to other toy companies for sale in various other countries. See "Licenses and Distribution Agreements." The strength of the U.S. dollar relative to other currencies can significantly affect the revenues and profitability of the Company's international operations. The Company hedges a majority of intercompany purchases and sales of inventory in order to protect local cash flows and profitability from currency fluctuations. See "Financial Instruments." For financial information by geographic area, see Note 8 to the Consolidated Financial Statements in the Annual Report to Shareholders, incorporated herein by reference. PRODUCT DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT - ------------------------------ Through its product design and development group, the Company regularly refreshes, redesigns and extends existing product lines and develops innovative new product lines. The Company's success is dependent on its ability to continue this activity. Product design and development are principally conducted by a group of professional designers and engineers employed by the Company. License agreements with third parties permit the Company to utilize the name, character or product of the licensor in its product line. A principal licensor is The Walt Disney Company, which licenses many of its characters for use on the Company's products. The Company also has entered into license agreements with, among others, the following: McDonald's, Inc.; MCA Universal Merchandising, Inc.; the Time Warner Entertainment Company, L.P. and DC Comics, Inc. units of Time Warner Inc.; Turner Home Entertainment, Inc.; Children's Television Workshop; Viacom, Inc. relating to its Nickelodeon properties; Bluebird Toys (UK) Limited; Original Appalachian Artworks, Inc.; and General Motors Corporation. A number of these licenses relate to product lines that are significant to the Company. 5 Independent toy designers and developers bring products to the Company and are generally paid a royalty on the net selling price of products licensed by the Company. These independent toy designers may also create different products for other toy companies. The Company devotes substantial resources to product design and development. During the years ended December 31, 1994, December 31, 1993 and December 31, 1992, the Company expended approximately $93 million, $75 million and $77 million, respectively, in connection with the design and development of products, exclusive of royalty payments. See Note 10 to the Consolidated Financial Statements in the Annual Report to Shareholders, incorporated herein by reference. ADVERTISING AND PROMOTION - ------------------------- The Company supports its product lines with extensive advertising and consumer promotions. Advertising continues at varying levels throughout the year and peaks during the Christmas season. Advertising includes television and radio commercials and magazine and newspaper ads. Promotions include in-store displays, coupons, merchandising materials and major events focusing on products and tie-ins with various consumer product companies. To further promote the Company and its products, the Company participates in the attractions "It's A Small World" at Disneyland and Walt Disney World and "Autopia" at Disneyland Paris under a ten-year agreement with The Walt Disney Company. The Company also participates in toy stores in Disneyland, Disneyland Paris and in the Disney Village Market Place near Walt Disney World. Separately, the Company has established a total of sixteen BARBIE Boutiques in F.A.O. Schwarz toy stores, including the "BARBIE on Madison" boutique at the F.A.O. Schwarz flagship store in New York City. During the years ended December 31, 1994, December 31, 1993 and December 31, 1992, Mattel spent approximately $516 million (16% of net sales), $427 million (16% of net sales) and $403 million (16% of net sales), respectively, on worldwide advertising and promotion. MARKETING AND SALES - ------------------- The Company's toy products are sold throughout the world. In the United States, the Company's products are distributed directly to large retailers, including discount and free-standing toy stores, chain stores and department stores, and other retail outlets and, to a limited extent, to wholesalers. Discount and free-standing toy stores continue to increase their market share. During the year ended December 31, 1994, Toys R Us and Wal-Mart accounted for approximately 23% and 13%, respectively, of worldwide consolidated net sales and were the only customers accounting for 10% or more of consolidated net sales. 6 In general, the Company's major domestic and international customers review its product lines and product concepts for the upcoming year at showings beginning in late summer. The Company also participates in the domestic and international toy industry trade fairs in the first quarter of the year. A majority of the full-year orders are received by May 1. As is traditional in the toy industry, these orders may be canceled at any time before they are shipped. Historically, the greater proportion of shipments of products to retailers occurs during the third and fourth quarters of the year. See "Seasonality." Through its marketing research departments, the Company conducts basic consumer research and product testing and monitors demographic factors and trends. This information assists the Company in evaluating consumer acceptance of products, including an analysis of increasing or decreasing demand for its products. The Company bases its production schedules on customer orders, modified by historical trends, results of market research and current market information. The actual shipments of products ordered and the order cancellation rate are affected by consumer acceptance of the product line, the strength of competing products, marketing strategies of retailers and overall economic conditions. Unexpected changes in these factors can result in a lack of product availability or excess inventory in a particular product line. MANUFACTURING - ------------- The Company's products are manufactured in Company-owned facilities and by independent contractors. Products are also purchased from unrelated entities that design, develop and manufacture the products. In order to provide greater flexibility in the manufacture and delivery of products, and as part of a continuing effort to reduce manufacturing costs, the Company has concentrated production of most of its core products in the Company's facilities and generally uses independent contractors for the production of non-core products. As a result of the Kransco Acquisition and Spear Acquisition, Mattel acquired manufacturing facilities in the state of Indiana, and the United Kingdom and Mexico, respectively, which are in addition to its existing manufacturing facilities in the states of California, Kentucky, New York, the United Kingdom, Mexico, the Far East (China, Indonesia and Malaysia) and Italy. In January 1995, the Company announced a work force reduction in its manufacturing facility located in Medina, New York as part of a company-wide restructuring. The Company also utilizes independent contractors to manufacture products in the United States, Mexico, the Far East and Australia. To protect the stability of its product supply, the Company produces many of its key products in more than one facility. Foreign countries in which the Company's products are manufactured (principally China, Indonesia, Malaysia and Mexico) currently enjoy "most favored nation" ("MFN") 7 status under U.S. tariff laws, which provides the most favorable category of U.S. import duties. As a result of continuing concerns in the United States Congress regarding China's human and worker rights policies, and the current trade dispute covering China's inadequate protection of U.S. intellectual property rights, there has been, and may be in the future, opposition to the extension of MFN status for China. The loss of MFN status for China would result in a substantial increase in the import duty for toys manufactured in China and imported into the United States and would result in increased costs for the Company and others in the toy industry. The impact of such an event on the Company would be significantly mitigated by the Company's ability to source product for the U.S. market from countries other than China and ship product manufactured in China to markets outside the U.S. Toward that end, the Company has extended its production capacity in other countries. A number of other factors, including the Company's ability to pass along the added costs through price increases and the pricing policies of vendors in China, could further mitigate the impact of a loss of China's MFN status. On February 8, 1994, the European Union ("EU") adopted quotas on the importation of certain classes of toys (as well as other products) manufactured in China. The Company expects that the impact of these quotas on its business will be significantly mitigated by shifts in demand in favor of toy categories not subject to the quotas, and by the ability of the Company to source product for the EU from countries other than China and ship product manufactured in China elsewhere. The Company does not currently expect that these quotas will have a material effect on its business. In December 1994, the EU significantly reduced the GSP duty free treatment previously extended to toys imported into Europe. During 1994, toys were allowed to enter the EU free under the GSP program, but effective January 1, 1995, toys imported into the EU are assessed a GSP rate of 5.1%, which is 70% of the normal duty rate of 7.3%. This increase in duties paid in Europe will be offset by a reduction in worldwide duty expense resulting from the passage of the Uruguay Round by the United States Congress in December 1994 and its official implementation on January 1, 1995. In the United States, all duties on dolls and traditional toys have been completely eliminated. Canada has also reduced its tariffs to zero, with the exception of toy sets and board games. In Japan and the EU, doll tariffs were only reduced by an average of 20%, with tariffs in some product categories of lesser importance to Mattel scheduled to be reduced or phased out over a period of 5 to 10 years. The Company does not currently expect that the net impact of these changes will have a material effect on its business. COMMITMENTS - ----------- In the normal course of business, the Company enters into contractual arrangements for future purchases of goods and services to ensure availability and timely delivery, and to obtain and protect the right to create and market certain toys. Such arrangements include commitments for future inventory purchases and royalty payments pursuant to license 8 agreements. Certain of these purchase agreements and licenses contain provisions for guaranteed or minimum payments during the terms of the contracts and licenses. See "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Results of Operations and Financial Condition--Commitments" and Note 6 to the Consolidated Financial Statements in the Annual Report to Shareholders, incorporated herein by reference. LICENSES AND DISTRIBUTION AGREEMENTS - ------------------------------------ The Company's level of licensing activity has expanded in recent years. Royalties paid to licensors during the years ended December 31, 1994, December 31, 1993 and December 31, 1992 were approximately $84 million, $69 million and $50 million, respectively. See Note 6 to the Consolidated Financial Statements in the Annual Report to Shareholders, incorporated herein by reference. The Company also distributes products which are independently designed and manufactured. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS - --------------------- From time to time, the Company enters into foreign currency forward exchange contracts and swap agreements as hedges for payment of inventory purchases, collection of sales and various other intercompany transactions. The contracts are intended to fix a portion of the Company's product cost and intercompany cash flows, and thereby moderate the impact of foreign currency fluctuations. The Company does not speculate in foreign currencies. For additional information regarding foreign currency contracts, see Note 6 to the Consolidated Financial Statements in the Annual Report to Shareholders, incorporated herein by reference. SEASONAL FINANCING - ------------------ The Company's financing of seasonal working capital typically grows throughout the first half of the year and peaks in the third or fourth quarter, when accounts receivable are at their highest due to increased sales volume and Company sales programs, and when inventories are at their highest in anticipation of expected second half sales volume. See "Seasonality." Borrowings for seasonal financing are generally repaid in full by year-end from cash flows generated in the fourth quarter from sales and collection of accounts receivable. To finance its working capital requirements, the Company maintains and periodically revises or replaces a revolving credit agreement with a commercial bank group. The 9 agreement in effect during 1994 consisted of unsecured domestic facilities providing a total of $500.0 million in seasonal financing. The facilities also provided for up to $250.0 million in advances and backup for commercial paper issuances ($125.0 million of which was a 364-day facility and the other $125.0 million was a three-year facility), and up to an additional $250.0 million (a three-year facility) for nonrecourse purchases of certain trade accounts receivable by the bank group. In connection with the agreement, the Company was required to comply with certain consolidated financial covenants for debt-to-capital, interest coverage and tangible net worth levels. Interest was charged at various rates not greater than the base rate charged by the agent bank. Commitment fees on the unused line available for advances were not greater than .1375%. In 1994, the Company's domestic seasonal borrowings outstanding under the revolving credit agreement and other bank borrowings averaged approximately $271 million and reached a peak of approximately $613 million during the third quarter. This balance was fully repaid by December 31, 1994. The Company's 1994 seasonal borrowings outstanding under international credit lines averaged approximately $36 million and reached a peak of approximately $74 million in the third quarter. Effective in March 1995, the Company amended its revolving credit agreement. The new agreement consists of unsecured facilities providing a total of $650.0 million in seasonal financing from substantially the same group of commercial banks. The facilities provide for up to $400.0 million in advances and backup for commercial paper issuances (a three-year facility), and up to an additional $250.0 million (a three-year facility) for nonrecourse purchases of certain trade accounts receivable by the bank group. In connection with the agreement, the Company is required to comply with certain consolidated financial covenants for debt-to-capital, interest coverage and tangible net worth levels. Concurrently with the consummation of the Kransco Acquisition, the Kransco seasonal credit line was terminated and Kransco's domestic seasonal working capital needs were financed by Mattel's revolving credit agreement. The Company believes the amounts available to it under its revolving credit agreement and its foreign credit lines will be adequate to meet its seasonal financing requirements. RAW MATERIALS - ------------- Packaging materials, most plastics and zinc essential to the production and marketing of toy products are currently in adequate supply. These and other raw materials are generally available from a number of suppliers. Prices for resin and packaging materials are expected to rise in 1995. 10 TRADEMARKS, COPYRIGHTS, AND PATENTS - ----------------------------------- Most of the Company's products are sold under trademarks, trade names and copyrights and a number of those products incorporate patented devices or designs. Trade names and trademarks are significant assets to the Company in that they provide product recognition and acceptance worldwide. The Company customarily seeks patent, trademark or copyright protection covering its products, and it owns or has applications pending for United States and foreign patents covering many of its products. A number of these trademarks and copyrights relate to product lines that are significant to the Company and the Company believes its rights to these properties are adequately protected. The Company also licenses various of its trademarks, characters and other property rights to others for use in connection with the sale by others of non-toy products and other products which do not compete with the Company's products. GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS - ---------------------- The Company's toys are subject to the provisions of the Consumer Product Safety Act, the Federal Hazardous Substances Act and the Flammable Fabrics Act, and the regulations promulgated thereunder. The Consumer Product Safety Act and the Federal Hazardous Substances Act enable the Consumer Product Safety Commission (the "CPSC") to exclude from the market consumer products that fail to comply with applicable product safety regulations or otherwise create a substantial risk of injury, and articles that contain excessive amounts of a banned hazardous substance. The Flammable Fabrics Act enables the CPSC to regulate and enforce flammability standards for fabrics used in consumer products. The CPSC may also require the repurchase by the manufacturer of articles which are banned. Similar laws exist in some states and cities and in various international markets. Fisher-Price's car seats are subject to the provisions of the National Highway Transportation Safety Act, which enables the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ("NHTSA") to promulgate performance standards for child restraint systems. Fisher-Price conducts periodic tests to ensure that its child restraint systems meet applicable standards. A Canadian agency, Transport Canada, also regulates child restraint systems sold for use in Canada. As with the CPSC, NHTSA and Transport Canada can require the recall and repurchase or repair of products which do not meet their respective standards. The Company maintains a quality control program to ensure product safety compliance with the various federal, state and international requirements. 11 EFFECTS OF INFLATION - -------------------- Inflation rates in the U.S. and major foreign countries in which the Company operates have not had a significant impact on operating results for the three years ended December 31, 1994. The U.S. Consumer Price Index increased 2.7% in 1994, 2.7% in 1993 and 2.9% in 1992. The Company is afforded some protection from the impact of inflation as a result of high turnover of inventories and benefited from inflation on the repayment of fixed-rate liabilities during these periods. EMPLOYEES - --------- The total number of persons employed by the Company and its subsidiaries at any one time varies because of the seasonal nature of its manufacturing operations. At December 31, 1994, the Company's total number of employees, including its international operations, was approximately 22,000. 12 EXECUTIVE OFFICERS OF THE REGISTRANT - ------------------------------------ The executive officers of the Company, all of whom are appointed annually by the Board of Directors and serve at the pleasure of the Board, are as follows:

Fisher-Price owns its headquarters facilities in East Aurora, New York, consisting of approximately 290,000 square feet. 14 The Company maintains sales offices in California, Illinois, New York and Texas, and warehouse and distribution facilities in California, Kentucky, New York, Tennessee and Texas. The Company owns a computer facility in Phoenix, Arizona. Internationally, the Company has offices and/or warehouse space in Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Chile, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong and in certain other areas of Asia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, The Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and Venezuela. The Company's principal manufacturing facilities are located in China, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, the United Kingdom and the United States. See "Manufacturing." Most of the Company's facilities are occupied under long-term leases and, for the most part, are fully utilized, although excess manufacturing capacity exists from time to time based on product mix and demand. With respect to leases which are scheduled to expire during the next twelve months, the Company may negotiate new lease agreements, renew leases or utilize alternative facilities. As a result of the Kransco and Spear Acquisitions, the Company acquired leased sales offices and warehouse and distribution facilities in California and Virginia, and leased or owned domestic manufacturing facilities in Indiana, and international manufacturing facilities in Mexico and the United Kingdom. The Company is currently evaluating the desirability of maintaining certain of these facilities and expects to sell, sublease or not renew the leases of those facilities which are vacant, under-utilized or redundant. ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS - ------- ----------------- The Company's Fisher-Price subsidiary has executed a consent order with the State of New York involving a remedial action/feasibility study for voluntary cleanup of contamination at one of its manufacturing plants. The ultimate liability associated with this cleanup presently is estimated to be less than $1,375,000, approximately $575,000 of which has been incurred through December 31, 1994. The Company is involved in various litigation and other legal matters which are being defended and handled in the ordinary course of business. None of these matters is expected to result in outcomes having a material adverse effect on the Company's liquidity, operating results or consolidated financial position. ITEM 4.

We have audited the consolidated statements of income, stockholders' equity and cash flows of Fisher-Price, Inc. and subsidiaries for the fiscal year ended January 3, 1993. We have also audited the financial statement schedules. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated results of operations and cash flows of Fisher-Price, Inc. and subsidiaries for the fiscal year ended January 3, 1993, in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. In addition, in our opinion, the financial statement schedules referred to above, when considered in relation to the basic financial statements taken as a whole, present fairly, in all material respects, the information required to be included therein. /s/ Coopers & Lybrand L.L.P. - ---------------------------- Boston, Massachusetts February 4, 1993 19 (2) Financial Statement Schedule for the years ended December 31, 1994, December 31, 1993 and December 31, 1992(1) Schedule V - Valuation and Qualifying Accounts and Allowances (3) Exhibits (Listed by numbers corresponding to Item 601 of Regulation S-K) 2.0 Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of August 19, 1993, by and among the Company, MAT Acquisition, Inc. and Fisher-Price, Inc.

26 MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL ------------------------------------------------- CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS ---------------------------------- Mattel, Inc. and Subsidiaries This analysis should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements which begin on page 32. Mattel's financial performance reflects the Company's solid growth in 1994, demonstrating continued strength in its core brands, as well as incremental volume provided through expansion of its international marketing and distribution network and increased manufacturing efficiency. The Company's long-term business strategies have resulted in another record year for sales and earnings, with net sales for 1994 of $3.2 billion and net income for 1994 of $255.8 million. Mattel's merger with Fisher-Price, Inc. ("Fisher-Price") completed in the fourth quarter of 1993, and the recent acquisitions of the Kransco business and J.W. Spear & Sons PLC ("Spear"), completed in the second and third quarters of 1994, respectively, should continue to enhance the Company's position as a worldwide leader in the manufacturing and marketing of children's toys. Core brands, which historically have provided the Company with relatively stable growth, include BARBIE doll products, FISHER-PRICE toys and juvenile products, Disney-licensed toys, HOT WHEELS vehicles and playsets, large dolls, preschool toys including SEE 'N' SAY toys, and the UNO and SKIP-BO card games. The Company's acquisitions of Kransco and Spear have provided Mattel with additional core consumer franchises represented by the POWER WHEELS line of battery-powered, ride-on vehicles and the rights to the SCRABBLE game in markets outside of the United States and Canada. RESULTS OF OPERATIONS - --------------------- The following is a percentage analysis of operating results for the past three years:
For the Year ---------------------------------- 1994 1993 1992 - ---------------------------------- ---------- ---------- ---------- Net sales 100% 100% 100% ========== ========== ========== Gross profit 50 49 48 Advertising and promotion expenses 16 16 16 Other selling and administrative expenses 17 18 18 Restructuring and integration charges 2 4 - Other expense, net 1 - - ---------- ---------- ---------- Operating profit 14 11 14 Interest expense 2 2 3 ---------- ---------- ---------- Income before income taxes, extraordinary item and changes in accounting principles 12% 9% 11% ========== ========== ==========
1994 COMPARED TO 1993 - --------------------- Net sales increased $500.6 million or 19% over 1993, reflecting strong growth in worldwide sales of core products, as well as POLLY POCKET toys, Nickelodeon-licensed toys, and MIGHTY MAX action figures. Added volume was also generated by the acquisitions of Kransco and Spear, which contributed $178.7 million in the aggregate to net sales during 1994. Excluding the Kransco and Spear acquisitions, the Company's worldwide net sales increased $321.9 million or 12%. Worldwide sales of core products represented 84% of total revenues in 1994 compared to 86% for the prior year, largely as a result of strong non- core product sales. Core brand sales increased 16% over the prior year, with gross sales of BARBIE and BARBIE-related products exceeding $1.1 billion in volume. Sales of Disney-licensed products, led by toys connected with "The Lion King" motion picture, increased by 33% to $441.9 million. Fisher-Price contributed $828.2 million to gross sales in 1994 compared to $747.9 million in 1993, and HOT WHEELS brand sales grew by 18% over 1993 volumes. These increases were partially offset by a continuing decline in sales in the large doll segment, which were 27% below the prior year volume. Sales to customers in the United States were 59% of 1994 consolidated revenues compared to 60% in the prior year. In total, domestic sales increased 17%, partially attributable to incremental volume generated from the acquisition of Kransco, which represented 6% of the Company's domestic sales for 1994. Total international sales increased 20% compared to 1993, including the $24.0 million favorable effect of the weakening of the U.S. dollar relative to last year. At constant foreign currency exchange rates, sales outside the United States grew 19%. Gross profit as a percentage of net sales increased one percentage point to 50%, primarily due to higher sales volume, improved product mix and synergies realized as a result of the integration of Fisher-Price. Advertising and promotion expenses increased slightly as a percentage of net sales; however, spending increased $89.8 million in support of the growth in sales volume, new product introductions, further development of markets internationally and the acquisitions of Kransco and Spear, which contributed $16.3 million to the advertising growth. As a percentage of net sales, other selling and administrative expenses decreased from 18% to 17%, reflecting the Company's ongoing efforts to manage expense growth relative to revenue growth. In total, selling and administrative expenses increased by $63.0 million mainly due to the acquisitions of Kransco and Spear, which contributed $22.1 million to the increase. Other expense, net, 27 increased $15.6 million, primarily due to the effect of the Mexican peso devaluation in the fourth quarter and higher goodwill amortization arising from the Kransco and Spear acquisitions in 1994, partially offset by higher 1993 charges related to losses on sales of fixed assets. Interest expense decreased $7.2 million over the prior year as a result of the prepayment of Fisher-Price's 10.69% term loan, and interest savings generated by the conversion of the 8% Debentures to common stock during the 1994 first quarter, partially offset by increased seasonal borrowings to finance the acquisitions of Kransco and Spear. In the 1994 fourth quarter, the Company recognized a $72.0 million pre-tax charge against continuing operations in connection with the consolidation of manufacturing operations and the reduction of headquarters expense and support functions worldwide. After related tax effects, the net $46.8 million charge impacted 1994 earnings by $0.21 per share on a fully diluted basis. In the 1993 fourth quarter, the Company reported a $115.0 million pre-tax charge against continuing operations in connection with its merger with Fisher-Price. After related tax effects, the net $90.4 million charge impacted 1993 earnings by $0.40 per share on a fully diluted basis. The restructuring charges in 1994 included approximately $36 million related to severance costs from elimination of approximately 1,000 positions, $15 million of restricted stock awards that related to the Fisher-Price integration, $14 million for termination of various distribution and lease agreements, $4 million for the writedown of fixed assets to their net realizable value in connection with the elimination of excess manufacturing capacity, and other costs of $3 million. Although no assurance can be given, the Company anticipates the restructuring will provide pre-tax cost savings of approximately $25 million during 1995, principally as a result of creating efficiencies and eliminating redundancies. Available cash reserves and cash flow generated from normal business operations will fund the costs of the restructuring, with no adverse impact expected on the Company's future liquidity, revenues or financial position. It is anticipated that substantially all amounts related to the restructuring will be expended during 1995. As of December 31, 1994, the integration and restructuring activity provided for by the 1993 charge was substantially complete and amounts previously accrued had been paid. The cost savings realized by the Company as a result of the consolidation of facilities and related staff reductions were comparable to the anticipated $45 million, and the type and amount of charges actually incurred approximated the amounts included in the provision. The 1993 fourth quarter included an extraordinary net-of-tax charge of $14.7 million resulting from prepayment of Fisher-Price's 10.69% term loan. 1993 COMPARED TO 1992 - --------------------- Net sales increased $140.9 million or 5% over 1992. In addition to growth in core product sales, incremental volume was contributed by sales of Nickelodeon-licensed toys and new product introductions such as BABY WALK 'N ROLL, MIGHTY MAX, SALLY SECRETS and the Company's line of McDonald's activity toys. The growth in worldwide net sales includes unfavorable foreign currency impacts of $104.1 million and a $57.5 million decrease in Nintendo volume as a result of terminations of the Company's distributorship agreements for Nintendo products in Australia in the 1993 fourth quarter and in Canada and Italy during the first and third quarters of 1992, respectively. Worldwide sales of core products represented 86% of total revenues for both 1993 and 1992. In total, core brand sales increased 6% over the prior year, with sales of BARBIE products exceeding $1.0 billion in volume. Fisher-Price sales totaled $747.9 million in 1993 compared to $725.0 million in 1992. Die-cast sales increased 24% and Disney-licensed product sales were 19% higher than year-ago levels. These increases were partially offset by a continuing decline in the large doll segment, which was 29% below the prior year. Domestic sales grew 7%, and represented 60% of worldwide gross revenues in 1993 compared to 59% in the prior year. Sales internationally increased 4%, reflecting the unfavorable impacts of foreign currency translation and the terminations of the distributorship agreements for Nintendo products. At constant rates of exchange, international revenues increased 15% over the prior year. Excluding Nintendo, international sales grew 10% over 1992, or by 21% at constant rates of exchange. As a percentage of net sales, gross profit increased one percentage point due to higher sales volume and an improved product mix. Advertising and promotion expenses, while constant as a percentage of net sales, increased $23.3 million over 1992 levels in support of increased sales of core brands and new product introductions. The Company's expansion of its marketing operations and manufacturing facilities resulted in a net increase in other selling and administrative expenses of $2.2 million as compared to the prior year, which included the effect of a $15.0 million pre-tax charge to the provision for doubtful accounts related to the bankruptcy of Child World and deteriorating financial condition of Lionel Leisure. Other expense, net, decreased slightly, principally as a result of gains on foreign currency transactions which were partially offset by amortization of goodwill and losses on routine dispositions of fixed assets. Interest expense decreased $6.1 million or 9%, reflecting a general decline in interest rates and lower levels of short-term bank borrowing, partially offset by interest on the 6-7/8% Senior Notes issued in August 1992 and the 6-3/4% Senior Notes issued in May 1993. In the 1993 fourth quarter, the Company recognized a $115.0 million pre-tax charge against continuing operations in connection with its merger with Fisher-Price. Of the total, approximately $17 million represented transaction costs of the merger, including investment banking, legal, accounting and related costs, and $30 million was related to 28 the severance of key Fisher-Price executives. Following the merger, the Company commenced restructuring and integrating certain of the domestic and international business operations of the entities. Of the estimated integration and restructuring costs of $68 million, approximately $13 million represented writedowns of fixed assets in connection with the elimination of duplicative administration and plant facilities. The remainder represented expenditures related to the combination of the entities' worldwide business operations, including staff reductions and outplacement expenses, costs of terminating contracts with lessors and distributors and fees paid to consultants in connection with the integration and restructuring process. After related tax effects, the net $90.4 million charge impacted 1993 earnings by $0.40 per share on a fully diluted basis. Following the merger, the Company negotiated an agreement with the lenders to permit prepayment of Fisher-Price's 10.69% term loan. The prepayment resulted in an extraordinary net-of-tax charge in the 1993 fourth quarter of $14.7 million, or $0.06 per fully diluted share, for the prepayment premium and write-off of unamortized issuance costs. INCOME TAXES - ------------ The effective income tax rates for 1994 and 1993 were 35.0% and 42.6%, respectively. The decrease in the effective rate for 1994 resulted from a reduction in nondeductible restructuring costs, increased taxable income earned in locations with relatively lower tax rates, and an increase in the U.S. tax benefit of foreign tax credits associated with dividends from subsidiaries located in higher tax rate countries. Effective January 1, 1993, the Company adopted Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 109, Accounting for Income Taxes, which replaced --------------------------- Statement No. 96. Upon adoption, a deferred income tax asset of $69.0 million was recorded, of which $16.0 million related to postquasi- reorganization net operating losses carried forward, and $53.0 million related principally to future tax deductions, and foreign tax credit and alternative minimum tax credit carryovers resulting from activities prior to the quasi-reorganization. The benefit of $16.0 million (or $0.07 per fully diluted share in the 1993 first quarter) was recognized in after-tax earnings as the cumulative effect of a change in accounting principle. The remaining $53.0 million was credited to additional paid-in capital in accordance with the required accounting treatment for transactions resulting from activities prior to the quasi-reorganization. FINANCIAL POSITION - ------------------ The Company's financial position remained strong in 1994 as a result of its profitable operating results. At December 31, 1994, the Company's cash position, including marketable securities, was $259.7 million, compared to $523.6 million as of the prior year. The decrease was primarily due to the acquisitions of Kransco and Spear, and the prepayment of Fisher-Price's long-term debt in January 1994, partially offset by the issuance of $110.5 million of Medium-Term Notes in the 1994 fourth quarter and cash generated from increased sales activity. The Company's working capital remained strong at $627.6 million. Accounts receivable increased $181.7 million over the prior year level, reflecting increases in fourth quarter sales volume, as well as the addition of Kransco and Spear receivables totaling $76.8 million. Inventories increased 54% compared to the prior year, which includes a combined $26.2 million increase as a result of the Kransco and Spear acquisitions, as well as new affiliates and the Company's production in support of future sales volume. Intangible assets increased by $292.9 million, primarily as a result of the goodwill of $221.0 million and $94.8 million generated from the acquisitions of Kransco and Spear, respectively, net of amortization. The Company's capitalization is as follows:
As of Year End ---------------------------------------- (In millions) 1994 1993 - ----------------------------- ------------------- ------------------- 6-7/8% Senior notes $ 99.6 7% $ 99.5 8% 6-3/4% Senior notes 100.0 7 100.0 8 Medium-Term notes 110.5 7 - - 8% Convertible subordinated debentures - - 74.0 6 Other long-term debt obligations 64.9 4 54.6 5 --------- -------- -------- --------- Total long-term debt 375.0 25 328.1 27 Other long-term liabilities 82.5 5 70.8 6 Shareholders' equity 1,085.7 70 817.8 67 --------- -------- -------- --------- $1,543.2 100% $1,216.7 100% ========= ======== ======== =========
Total long-term debt increased $46.9 million due to the issuance of Medium-Term Notes, partially offset by voluntary conversion of the 8% Debentures into common stock by holders of the debt. However, long-term debt decreased as a percentage of total capitalization. Shareholders' equity increased $267.9 million over 1993, reflecting profitable operating results for the current year, $73.4 million related to conversions of the 8% Debentures into common shares, and $78.1 million for activity related to employee stock compensation plans. These increases were partially offset by treasury stock purchases of $80.9 million and dividend declarations on common and preference stock totaling $50.3 million. LIQUIDITY - --------- The primary sources of liquidity for the Company over the last three years have been cash flows generated from operations, long-term debt issuances and short-term seasonal borrowings. Operating activities generated cash flows of $343.4 million during 1994, compared to $303.3 million and $131.6 million in 1993 and 1992, respectively. Principal investing activities during 1994 included expenditures for the Company's acquisitions of Kransco and Spear. Investing in 1994 and 1993 also included additions of tooling, property and equipment at various manufacturing 29 and office facilities. In addition to fixed asset purchases to replenish manufacturing and distribution facilities, investing activities during 1992 included the construction and start-up of a new manufacturing plant in Indonesia and the $16.0 million payment of final purchase consideration related to the Company's 1991 acquisition of Aviva Sport, Inc. Financing activities provided intermediate- and long-term funds through the issuance of Medium-Term Notes in 1994, the 6-3/4% Senior Notes in 1993 and the 6-7/8% Senior Notes in 1992, which were utilized by the Company to retire higher-cost debt and for general corporate purposes. In 1994, the Company retired Fisher-Price's 10.69% term loan. Cash outlays for treasury stock were made over the three-year period primarily to purchase shares for issuance under the Company's employee stock option plans and for potential conversions of convertible securities. The Company has consistently increased cash payments for common dividends over the three-year period as a result of stock splits distributed to common shareholders. SHORT-TERM FINANCING - -------------------- The Company's seasonal cash flow requirements for the coming year are expected to be met by cash on hand as of December 31, 1994, cash generated by 1995 operations, and short-term credit lines provided by domestic and foreign banks. Under the Company's domestic credit line, unsecured facilities provide a total of $650.0 million in seasonal financing from a commercial bank group. The facilities provide for up to $400.0 million in advances and backup for commercial paper issuances (a three-year facility), and up to an additional $250.0 million (a three-year facility) for nonrecourse purchases of certain trade accounts receivable by the bank group. In connection with the domestic credit line, the Company is to comply with certain financial covenants for consolidated debt-to-capital, interest coverage and tangible net worth levels. In addition, the Company expects to have available approximately $285 million of individual short-term international credit lines with a number of banks, which customarily are extended as needed to meet seasonal working capital requirements of certain foreign affiliates. ACQUISITIONS - ------------ On May 31, 1994, the Company acquired substantially all of the business assets and assumed the associated debts and liabilities of Kransco, a San Francisco-based designer, manufacturer and marketer of brand name recreational and sporting products, including POWER WHEELS battery-powered, ride-on vehicles; HULA HOOP and FRISBEE products marketed under the WHAM-O trademark; STREET JAM sporting goods; and MOREY BOOGIE bodyboards. The purchase price included net cash consideration of $254.6 million, including costs directly related to the acquisition. In addition, the Company repaid $20.0 million of Kransco's short-term borrowings concurrent with consummation of the asset purchase transaction. The asset purchase agreement also provides for future contingent consideration in the event that net sales of the POWER WHEELS product line reaches or exceeds certain levels in each of calendar years 1994, 1995 and 1996. The contingent consideration payable with respect to any year shall not exceed $8.6 million. As of December 31, 1994, $8.6 million of contingent consideration was payable, and as a result the goodwill initially recorded was increased. The acquisition has been accounted for under the purchase method of accounting and, accordingly, the operating results of Kransco have been included in the Company's consolidated financial statements since the date of acquisition. The excess of the aggregate purchase price over the estimated fair market value of the net assets acquired was approximately $221 million, which is being amortized on a straight-line basis over 20 years. In July 1994, the Company acquired a majority of the shares of Spear, a company organized in the United Kingdom, that holds the rights to SCRABBLE in markets outside of the United States and Canada, and certain other games worldwide. Under the terms of the Company's offer, shareholders had the option to receive the purchase consideration of 11.5 pounds sterling per issued share in either cash, interest-bearing notes or in a combination of cash and notes. As of December 31, 1994, holders of 5.1 million shares of Spear had elected the cash option, receiving approximately 58 million pounds sterling, and holders of 0.3 million shares had elected to receive notes. The aggregate purchase price, including investment advisor and other directly related expenses, denominated in pounds sterling, was approximately $100 million. The acquisition has been accounted for by the purchase method and, accordingly, the results of operations of Spear have been included in the Company's consolidated financial statements since the date of acquisition. The excess of cost over the estimated fair market value of tangible net assets acquired was approximately $95 million, which is being amortized on a straight-line basis over 20 years. On November 30, 1993, a merger was consummated between the Company and Fisher-Price, one of the world's 30 largest manufacturers and marketers of infant and preschool toys and juvenile products. The stock-for-stock transaction was approved by the shareholders of both companies, after which Fisher-Price became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. The merger agreement provided for the exchange of 1.275 shares of Mattel common stock for each outstanding Fisher-Price common share, and resulted in the issuance of 39.1 million shares, before stock splits (61.1 million shares after stock splits), valued, on the merger's effective date, at $1.19 billion. This transaction was accounted for as a pooling of interests, and accordingly, financial information for periods prior to the merger reflect retroactive restatement for the companies' combined financial position and operating results. Prior to July 1, 1991, the business of Fisher-Price was operated as a division of The Quaker Oats Company, and therefore, any such financial data are excluded from the Company's combined consolidated results presented herein. In 1992, the Company concluded its merger with International Games, Inc. ("IGI"), a creator, manufacturer and marketer of proprietary family and educational card and board games, including UNO and SKIP-BO. The merger, accounted for as a pooling of interests, was effected by exchanging all of IGI's outstanding voting preferred and common stock for 2.0 million shares of Mattel common stock and 0.9 million shares of Mattel 12.5% Convertible Preference Stock, Series F, representing a combined value of $58.5 million. LITIGATION - ---------- The Company is involved in various litigation and other legal matters, including claims related to product liability and environmental cleanup, which are being addressed or defended in the ordinary course of business. Management believes that any liability which may potentially result upon resolution of such matters will not have a material adverse effect on the Company's consolidated financial position or results of operations. COMMITMENTS - ----------- In the normal course of business, the Company enters into contractual arrangements for future purchases of goods and services to ensure availability and timely delivery, and to obtain and protect the Company's right to create and market certain toys. Such arrangements include commitments for future inventory purchases and royalty payments pursuant to licensing agreements. Certain of these commitments routinely contain provisions for guaranteed or minimum expenditures during the terms of the contracts. As of December 31, 1994, the Company had outstanding commitments for 1995 purchases of inventory of approximately $103 million. Licensing and similar agreements with terms extending through the year 2002 contain provisions for future guaranteed minimum payments aggregating approximately $304 million. FOREIGN CURRENCY CONTRACTS - -------------------------- The Company enters into foreign currency forward exchange contracts and swap agreements primarily as hedges of inventory purchases, sales and other intercompany transactions denominated in foreign currencies to limit the effect of exchange rate fluctuations on the Company's results of operations and cash flows. As of December 31, 1994 and 1993, the Company and its foreign affiliates had outstanding forward exchange contracts totaling $322.7 million and $343.2 million, respectively, and swap agreements totaling $189.9 million and $132.1 million, respectively. Market risk exposures exist with respect to foreign currency forward exchange contracts to the extent that currency fluctuations cannot be predicted with certainty. The Company seeks to mitigate its exposure to market risk through forecasting its future foreign currency positions and hedge requirements, retaining flexibility with respect to currencies used for international borrowing arrangements and intercompany invoicing, and varying the degree of coverage of individual foreign currency exposures, which may alternatively be left open, partially or fully hedged. By policy, the Company maintains hedge coverages between minimum and maximum percentages of its anticipated foreign currency exposures for any given year. In order to minimize the risk of counterparty non-performance, the Company executes its foreign currency forward exchange contracts and swap agreements with financial institutions believed to be credit-worthy, generally those that provide the Company with its working capital lines of credit. The Company does not trade in financial instruments nor does it enter into contracts for speculative purposes. EFFECTS OF INFLATION - -------------------- Inflation rates in the United States and in major foreign countries in which the Company operates have not had a significant impact on the Company's operating results for the three years ended December 31, 1994. The impact of inflation on the Company is minimized as a result of rapid turnover of inventories. The U.S. Consumer Price Index increased 2.7% in 1994, 2.7% in 1993 and 2.9% in 1992. 31 CONSOLIDATED BALANCE SHEETS --------------------------- Mattel, Inc. and Subsidiaries

36 NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS ------------------------------------------ Mattel, Inc. and Subsidiaries NOTE 1 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES - --------------------------------------------------- Principles of Consolidation - --------------------------- The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Mattel, Inc. and its subsidiaries (the "Company"). All significant intercompany accounts and transactions are eliminated, and certain amounts in the financial statements for prior years have been reclassified to conform with the current year presentation. Financial data for all periods presented reflect the retroactive effects of the merger, accounted for as a pooling of interests, with Fisher-Price, Inc. ("Fisher-Price") consummated in November 1993. Foreign Currency Translation - ---------------------------- Assets and liabilities of foreign subsidiaries are translated at end-of- period rates of exchange. Income, expense and cash flows are translated at weighted-average rates of exchange for the period. The resulting currency translation adjustments are accumulated and reported as a separate component of shareholders' equity. Quasi-Reorganization - -------------------- Effective December 26, 1987, the Company implemented a quasi-reorganization and revalued its assets and liabilities to their fair values as of that date. The $69.0 million net effect of these adjustments was credited to additional paid-in capital. Additionally, as of December 26, 1987, accumulated deficits of $256.0 million and cumulative currency translation adjustments of $32.7 million were transferred to additional paid-in capital. Cash - ---- Cash includes cash equivalents. Highly liquid investments with maturities of three months or less when purchased are considered to be cash equivalents. Because of the short maturities of these instruments, the carrying amount is a reasonable estimate of fair value. Marketable Securities - --------------------- Marketable securities, comprised principally of U.S. dollar-denominated debt securities of foreign governments held for liquidity purposes, are stated at market value and classified as securities available-for-sale. Unrealized gains or losses are reported as a separate component in shareholders' equity until realized. Quoted market prices, which approximated cost as of the balance sheet dates, are reasonable estimates of the portfolio's fair value. Inventories - ----------- Inventories, net of an allowance for excess quantities and obsolescence, are stated at the lower of cost or market. Cost is determined by the first-in, first-out method. Property, Plant and Equipment - ----------------------------- Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and amortization. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over estimated useful lives of 15 to 40 years for buildings, 3 to 10 years for machinery and equipment, and 10 to 20 years, not to exceed the lease term, for leasehold improvements. Tools, dies and molds are amortized using the straight-line method over three years. Capitalized lease assets in existence at the time of the quasi- reorganization are recorded at their fair values determined as of December 26, 1987, less accumulated amortization computed over the remaining lease terms. Major categories of capitalized leases are as follows (in thousands):
As of Year End ---------------------- 1994 1993 - -------------------------------- ---------- ---------- Land and buildings $37,208 $37,208 Machinery and equipment 1,260 1,001 ---------- ---------- 38,468 38,209 Less: accumulated amortization 18,607 16,538 ---------- ---------- $19,861 $21,671 ========== ==========
Intangible Assets, Net - ---------------------- Intangible assets consist of the excess of purchase price over the fair value of net assets acquired in purchase acquisitions, additional performance purchase payments, and the costs of acquired patents and trademarks. Intangible assets are amortized using the straight-line method over periods ranging from 10 to 40 years. Accumulated amortization was $74.0 million and $55.4 million as of December 31, 1994 and December 31, 1993, respectively. In 1992, the amortization period for goodwill arising from certain acquisitions was changed from 10 years to 20 years, to better reflect the estimated periods over which related economic benefits will be realized. Income Taxes - ------------ Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are determined in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 109, Accounting for -------------- Income Taxes ("SFAS No. 109"), and result from revenues and expenses being - ------------ recognized in different time periods for financial reporting purposes than for income tax purposes. Under SFAS No. 109, deferred income taxes arise from temporary differences and carryforwards which are tax-effected at the enacted tax rates and subsequently adjusted for changes in tax laws and rates. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are classified as current or noncurrent based upon the financial reporting classification of assets and liabilities to which they relate. A valuation allowance is established if it is more likely than not that some 37 portion or all of a deferred income tax asset will not be realized. Effective January 1, 1993, the Company adopted SFAS No. 109, the effects of which are covered in detail in Note 2 to the consolidated financial statements. Income and Dividends Per Common Share - ------------------------------------- All share and per share data presented in these financial statements reflect the retroactive effects of the Fisher-Price and IGI mergers, the five-for-four stock splits distributed in January 1995 and 1994 and the three-for-two stock split distributed in June 1992. Income per common share is computed by dividing earnings available to common shareholders by the average number of common and common equivalent shares outstanding during each period. Primary weighted average share computations assume the exercise of dilutive stock options and warrants, reduced by the number of shares which could be repurchased at average market prices with proceeds from exercise. Primary earnings represent reported net income less preference stock dividend requirements, plus interest savings from the assumed retirement of debt upon exercise of dilutive warrants. On a fully diluted basis, weighted average shares are determined assuming conversion of the 8% Debentures and Series F preference shares, and exercise of all dilutive stock options and warrants, net of assumed treasury share purchases at the higher of end-of-period or average market prices. Fully diluted earnings represent reported net income less required Employee Stock Ownership Plan ("ESOP") dividends or contributions upon conversion of the preference shares and adjusted for the effects, net of tax, resulting from the assumed conversions of convertible securities and the exercise of dilutive warrants. Foreign Currency Contracts - -------------------------- The Company enters into foreign currency forward exchange contracts and swap agreements as hedges to limit the effect of exchange rate fluctuations on the Company's results of operations and cash flows. Gains and losses related to hedged transactions are deferred and are recognized in results of operations as part of the underlying transaction while those related to unhedged transactions are included in the income statement currently.

Appropriate U.S. and foreign income taxes have been provided for earnings of foreign subsidiary companies that are expected to be remitted in the near future. The cumulative amount of undistributed earnings of foreign subsidiaries which the Company intends to permanently invest and upon which no deferred U.S. income taxes have been provided is $301.8 million at December 31, 1994. The additional U.S. income tax on the unremitted foreign earnings, if repatriated, would be offset in whole or in part by foreign tax credits. Foreign withholding taxes of $14.3 million would be due upon remittance of these earnings. Certain foreign subsidiaries have net operating loss carryforwards totaling $61.2 million ($2.0 million with no expiration date; $59.2 million expiring 1995 to 1999). Generally accepted accounting principles require that tax benefits related to the exercise by employees of nonqualified stock options be credited to additional paid-in capital. In 1994, 1993 and 1992, nonqualified stock options exercised resulted in credits to additional paid-in capital totaling $23.9 million, $4.4 million and $12.4 million, respectively. The Internal Revenue Service has completed its examination of the Company's federal income tax returns through January 28, 1984. Effective January 1, 1993, the Company adopted Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 109, Accounting for Income Taxes, which replaced --------------------------- Statement No. 96. Upon adoption, a net deferred income tax asset of $69.0 million was recorded, of which $16.0 million related to postquasi- reorganization net operating losses carried forward, and $53.0 million related principally to future tax deductions, and foreign tax credit and alternative minimum tax credit carryovers resulting from activities prior to the 1987 quasi-reorganization. The benefit of $16.0 million (or $0.07 per fully diluted share in the 1993 first quarter) was recognized in after- tax earnings as the cumulative effect of a change in accounting principle; the remaining $53.0 million was credited to additional paid-in capital in accordance with the required accounting treatment for transactions resulting from activities prior to the 1987 quasi-reorganization. NOTE 3 - EMPLOYEE BENEFITS - -------------------------- The Company and certain of its subsidiaries have various pension and retirement plans covering substantially all employees of these companies. Pension expense for the Company's plans totaled $14.6 million, $10.0 million and $9.5 million in 1994, 1993 and 1992, respectively. Prior to the November 1993 merger, Fisher-Price maintained a number of benefit plans and compensation arrangements. In general, these programs shall continue to be administered by Fisher-Price without material change or modification for periods up to five years following the merger, depending upon the program. Pension Plans - ------------- The Company provides defined benefit pension plans covering certain of its domestic and foreign employees. Plan benefits are based upon covered employees' length of service and earnings. Pension costs are actuarially determined and plans are generally funded to meet benefit obligations existing as of the end of each year. Contributions are based upon amounts required to be funded under applicable governmental regulations, but will not exceed the maximum amount deductible for income tax purposes. Assets of these plans are invested in equity securities, as well as corporate, government and other fixed-income investments. The Mattel, Inc. Pension Plan is a noncontributory defined benefit plan for certain domestic hourly employees who are covered by collective bargaining agreements. Accumulated and vested benefit obligations, pension cost and other expenses related to this plan were not significant in 1994, 1993 or 1992. Activity related to pension plans of foreign affiliates of the Company was not significant during any year. The Fisher-Price, Inc. Pension Plan, a defined benefit plan covering most of the domestic employees of Fisher-Price, contains certain change-of- control provisions which were triggered as a result of the November 1993 merger. For a five-year period, or until the assets of the plan are less than its liabilities, if earlier, the rate at which benefits accrue on behalf of participants may not be decreased, and in the event of the plan's termination or consolidation with another plan, assets in excess of liabilities must be used to increase participants' benefits. In addition, for a two-year period following the merger, participants whose employment with the Company is terminated under certain conditions may be entitled to immediate vesting and increased annual benefits under the plan. The components of net pension cost for this plan, based upon an October valuation date for the years ended December 31, 1994 and 1993 and January 3, 1993, are detailed below (in thousands):
For the Period ---------------------------------- 1994 1993 1992 - --------------------------------- ---------- ---------- ---------- Service cost $ 3,562 $ 2,928 $ 2,450 Interest cost 7,646 6,801 6,214 Actual loss (gain) on plan assets 1,038 (9,267) (8,831) Net amortization and deferral (14,221) (2,261) (1,919) ---------- ---------- ---------- Net pension income $ (1,975) $(1,799) $(2,086) ========== ========== ==========
39 Reconciliation of the funded status of Fisher-Price's domestic pension plan to the related prepaid asset included in the consolidated balance sheets are as follows (in thousands):
As of Year End ---------------------- 1994 1993 - --------------------------------------- ---------- --------- Vested benefits $ 85,510 $101,596 Nonvested benefits 3,643 3,979 ---------- --------- Accumulated benefit obligation 89,153 105,575 Effect of projected future salary increases 3,923 5,319 ---------- --------- Projected benefit obligation 93,076 110,894 Plan assets at fair value 117,866 122,237 --------- --------- Plan assets in excess of projected benefit obligation 24,790 11,343 Unrecognized net (gain) loss (1,424) 12,308 Unrecognized prior service cost 2,886 3,194 Unrecognized net asset at transition (11,561) (14,130) --------- --------- Prepaid pension asset $ 14,691 $ 12,715 ========== ========== For the Period ---------------------- 1994 1993 1992 - --------------------------------------- ------ ------ ------ Assumptions: Weighted average discount rate 8.5% 7.0% 8.0% Rate of future compensation increases 4.0% 4.0% 5.0% Long-term rate of return on plan assets 10.0% 10.0% 9.0% - ----------------------------------------------------------------
Other Retirement Plans - ---------------------- Domestic employees not covered by collective bargaining agreements are eligible to participate in the Company's 401(k) savings plans. Under these defined contribution plans, the Company makes contributions to a trust based upon the employee's age, as well as matches percentages of certain amounts of voluntary employee contributions. Mattel's Personal Investment Plan covers employees of Mattel, Inc. The Fisher-Price, Inc. Matching Savings Plan, which covers employees of Fisher-Price, will be separately maintained for at least two years following the November 1993 merger. On June 30, 1994, the Fisher-Price Profit Sharing and Retirement Savings Plan was merged and all its assets were transferred into the Fisher-Price, Inc. Matching Savings Plan. The Company maintains unfunded supplemental retirement plans which are unqualified defined benefit plans covering certain key executives of Mattel, Inc. In addition, compensation deferral and excess benefit plans exist for certain officers and key employees of both Mattel, Inc. and Fisher-Price. For 1994, 1993 and 1992, the accumulated and vested benefit obligations and related expense of these plans were not significant. Employee Stock Ownership Plan - ----------------------------- In January 1987, an employee stock ownership plan was established for employees of IGI. The ESOP is a defined contribution plan satisfying the requirements of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. A combination of dividends and cash contributions were paid by the Company in amounts sufficient for the plan to meet its debt service obligations. Payments to the ESOP for the years ended December 31, 1994 and December 31, 1993 were as follows (in thousands):
For the Year ------------------------ 1994 1993 ---------- ---------- Dividends on stock held by ESOP $3,485 $4,900 Company contribution to ESOP 15 20 ---------- ---------- 3,500 4,920 Interest on ESOP indebtedness 48 189 ---------- ---------- Total payments to ESOP $3,548 $5,109 ========== ==========
In connection with the February 1992 merger, IGI convertible preferred stock held by the ESOP was exchanged for 44,653 shares of the Company's common stock and 864,293 shares of the Company's 12.5% Convertible Preference Stock, Series F. The ESOP debt was repaid in August 1994. Per the terms of the plan, the Company must terminate the ESOP no later than December 31, 2000. Postretirement Benefits - ----------------------- The Company maintains a postretirement benefit plan for domestic employees of Mattel, Inc. The plan provides for health care to retirees meeting certain age and years of service requirements, and consists primarily of medical and prescription benefits, Medicare Part B reimbursement and life insurance. The plan calls for the payment of premiums by the participants, which amounts are intended to fund the costs of the plan. The Company reimburses 100% of Medicare Part B premiums for salaried employees who retired on or before July 1, 1993, and for union employees who retired on or before March 7, 1988. Employees retiring subsequent to those dates are not eligible for reimbursement. Life insurance coverage is provided for union hourly employees retiring with a pension. In the first quarter of 1993, the Company adopted Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 106, Employers' Accounting for ------------------------- Postretirement Benefits Other Than Pensions ("SFAS No. 106"), with - ------------------------------------------- immediate recognition of an actuarially-determined accumulated postretirement benefit obligation of $2.3 million for the Mattel, Inc. plan. The related charge of $1.4 million, after deferred income tax benefits of $0.9 million, was recognized in earnings as the cumulative effect of a change in accounting principle. The ongoing costs and obligations associated with the Mattel, Inc. plan are not significant to the Company's financial position and results of operations. Fisher-Price has a postretirement health insurance plan covering substantially all domestic employees hired prior to January 1, 1993. Existing retirees, employees who elected to retire before January 1, 1994 and employees whose age-plus-service was equal to 70 years by December 31, 1993 may continue to participate, for their lifetime, in the Fisher-Price group health insurance plan at the same contribution rate as active employees. All other active employees who do not satisfy the criteria outlined above participate in a retiree medical account balance plan. An account was established, as of January 1, 1993, for each eligible employee, with a balance equal to $865 for each year of service, including past service, 40 up to a maximum of 25 years. The account balance will become available upon a participant's retirement at age 55 or anytime thereafter with five years of service, and may be used to purchase benefits through the Fisher-Price health care insurance plan or through an outside insurance provider, and to pay for health care expenses not reimbursed by insurance or Medicare. If an employee terminates employment prior to satisfying the retirement criteria, the account balance is forfeited and no benefits are paid. Details of the plan's expense recognized in the consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 1994 and 1993 are as follows (in thousands):
For the Year ---------------------- 1994 1993 - -------------------------------------- ---------- ---------- Service cost $ 511 $ 475 Interest cost 1,826 1,999 Recognition of transition obligation - 29,357 ---------- ---------- Net postretirement benefit cost $2,337 $31,831 ========== ==========
The funded status of the plan and the amounts included in the Company's consolidated balance sheets are as follows (in thousands):
As of Year End ---------------------- 1994 1993 - ---------------------------------------- ---------- ---------- Current retirees $19,011 $19,367 Fully eligible active employees 5,078 4,359 Other active employees 6,659 5,631 ---------- ---------- Accumulated postretirement benefit obligation 30,748 29,357 Unrecognized net loss (21) - ---------- ---------- Accrued postretirement benefit liability $30,727 $29,357 ========== ==========
The discount rates used in determining the accumulated postretirement benefit obligation were 8.5% and 7.0% for 1994 and 1993, respectively. For participants below 65 years of age, the health care cost trend rate for expected claim costs was assumed to be 8.0% in 1994, declining to 6.75% by 1997 and remaining constant thereafter. For participants 65 years of age or older, the health care cost trend rate for expected claim costs was assumed to be 7.0% in 1994, declining to 6.75% by 1996 and remaining constant thereafter. A one percentage point increase in the assumed health care cost trend rate for each future year would have increased the aggregate of service and interest cost for 1994 by approximately $0.3 million and increased the accumulated postretirement benefit obligation as of December 31, 1994 by approximately $3 million. In January 1993, Fisher-Price adopted the provisions of SFAS No. 106 by electing to amortize its unrecognized transition obligation over 20 years. Upon consummation of the November 1993 merger, Fisher-Price's accounting methodology was conformed to that of the Company, and accordingly, a related $18.6 million charge, net of deferred income tax benefits of $10.7 million, was recognized in earnings as the cumulative effect of a change in accounting principle retroactively as of the 1993 first quarter. Incentive Awards - ---------------- The Company's Long-Term Incentive Plan is a variable compensation plan available to certain key executives of Mattel, Inc. Awards are paid annually based upon the performance of the Company over a three-year period. Pursuant to the Company's 1990 stock option plan, stock appreciation rights ("SAR") had been awarded in 1991 to certain key executives of Mattel, Inc. In February 1994, the value of SARs was capped, and they were canceled in exchange for awards consisting of nonqualified stock options and cash, which amount is payable in two equal installments on March 15, 1995 and 1996, contingent upon the executive's continued employment by the Company. At December 31, 1994 and 1993, $26.0 million and $13.6 million, respectively, were accrued for awards under these plans. The Company also has discretionary annual incentive compensation plans for officers and key employees of both Mattel, Inc. and Fisher-Price, Inc. based on the Company's performance and subject to certain approvals of the Compensation/Options Committee of the Board of Directors. At December 31, 1994 and 1993, $30.4 million and $22.4 million, respectively, were accrued for awards under these plans. NOTE 4 - SEASONAL FINANCING AND LONG-TERM DEBT - ---------------------------------------------- Seasonal Financing - ------------------ The Company maintains and periodically amends or replaces a revolving credit agreement with a commercial bank group which is utilized to finance the working capital requirements of its domestic and certain international operations. The agreement in effect during 1994, which was recently amended (see below), was renegotiated in the first quarter of 1994 to increase the total facility to $500.0 million from $350.0 million. Within the facility, up to $250.0 million was a standard revolving credit line available for advances and backup for commercial paper issuances ($125.0 million of which was a 364-day facility and the other $125.0 million was a three-year facility). Interest was charged at various rates selected by the Company not greater than the base rate charged by the agent bank, plus a commitment fee of up to .1375% of the unused line available for advances. The remaining $250.0 million (a three-year facility) was available for nonrecourse purchases of certain trade accounts receivable of the Company by the commercial bank group providing the credit line. During 1994, proceeds of $174.0 million were received by the Company as a result of accounts receivable purchases by the bank group. The agreement required the Company to comply with certain consolidated financial covenants for debt-to-capital, interest coverage and tangible net worth levels. To meet seasonal borrowing requirements of international operations in addition to amounts funded by proceeds of its revolving credit agreement, the Company negotiates individual financing arrangements, generally with the same groups of banks that provided credit in the prior year. International credit lines total approximately $285 million, a 41 portion of which is used to support letters of credit. The Company expects to extend these credit lines throughout 1995 and believes available amounts will be adequate to meet its seasonal financing requirements. During 1993, Fisher-Price had available domestic and international seasonal credit lines totaling $175.0 million and $90.0 million, respectively. Upon consummation of the merger, the domestic credit line was repaid and terminated. During 1994, Fisher-Price's international credit lines were terminated and its international operations were financed by the Company's existing credit facilities. Interest rates charged on the Company's working capital credit lines are adjusted on a periodic basis; therefore, the carrying amounts of such obligations are a reasonable approximation of their fair value. Information relating to the Company's domestic and international credit lines is summarized as follows (in thousands):
For the Year ---------------------------- 1994 1993 1992 - ----------------------------------- -------- -------- -------- Balance at end of year Domestic $ - $ - $ - International - - 13,400 Maximum amount outstanding Domestic 613,000 167,000 258,800 International 74,000 76,100 264,700 Average borrowing Domestic 271,000 45,100 114,300 International 36,000 55,100 156,300 Weighted average interest rate on average borrowing Domestic (computed daily) 5.0% 3.5% 4.4% International (computed monthly) 11.5% 8.5% 11.2% - ---------------------------------------------------------------------
Effective in March 1995, the Company amended its revolving credit agreement. The new agreement consists of unsecured facilities providing a total of $650.0 million in seasonal financing from substantially the same group of commercial banks. The facilities provide for up to $400.0 million in advances and backup for commercial paper issuances (a three-year facility), and up to an additional $250.0 million (a three-year facility) for nonrecourse purchases of certain trade accounts receivable by the bank group. In connection with the agreement, the Company is to comply with certain consolidated financial covenants for debt-to-capital, interest coverage and tangible net worth levels. 6-7/8% Senior Notes - ------------------- In August 1992, the Company issued $100.0 million aggregate principal amount of 6-7/8% Senior Notes maturing August 1, 1997. Interest is payable semiannually on the first day of February and August. The 6-7/8% Senior Notes may not be redeemed prior to maturity. Net proceeds from this issuance were used to reduce outstanding borrowings under the Company's domestic revolving credit line. At December 31, 1994 and 1993, the bid prices for the 6-7/8% Senior Notes, as provided by one of the underwriters, were $965.10 and $1,041.80, respectively, based on a par value of $1,000.00. 6-3/4% Senior Notes - ------------------- In May 1993, the Company issued $100.0 million aggregate principal amount of 6-3/4% Senior Notes maturing May 15, 2000. Interest is payable semiannually on the fifteenth day of each May and November. The 6-3/4% Senior Notes may not be redeemed prior to maturity. Net proceeds from this issuance were used in place of short-term borrowing for working capital purposes. At December 31, 1994 and 1993, the bid prices for the 6-3/4% Senior Notes, as provided by one of the underwriters, were $924.39 and $1,025.32, respectively, based on a par value of $1,000.00. Medium-Term Notes ("MT Notes") - ------------------------------ During the 1994 third quarter, the Company commenced a program for the issuance of up to $250.0 million in aggregate principal amount of Series A Medium-Term Notes. The MT Notes are issuable in one or more series and can be denominated in U.S. dollars or other specified currencies. The MT Notes bear interest at either fixed or variable rates, as determined at the time of issuance, and have maturity dates of greater than nine months. During the 1994 fourth quarter, the Company issued an aggregate of $80.5 million principal amount of MT Notes maturing on various dates from October 1999 to December 2004. Interest is payable semiannually at fixed rates ranging from 8.00% to 8.55% per annum on the fifteenth day of May and November, beginning on November 15, 1994. The proceeds of these issuances were used for general corporate purposes. At December 31, 1994, the bid prices for fixed rate MT Notes ranged from $983.12 to $997.33, based on a par value of $1,000.00. The Company also issued an aggregate of $30.0 million principal amount of MT Notes, maturing in January 1996, bearing interest at three-month LIBOR plus .125%, initially set at 6.5% per annum. Interest is payable quarterly on the twenty-ninth day of March, June, September and December, beginning on March 29, 1995. The proceeds from this issuance were also used for general corporate purposes. The principal amount of the MT Notes approximates fair value since the interest rate on this obligation is reset quarterly. Mortgage Note - ------------- In 1990, the Company borrowed $45.0 million under a mortgage agreement secured by its headquarters office facility in El Segundo, California. The agreement requires monthly interest-only payments for the first 60 months of its term and monthly principal and interest payments of approximately $0.4 million thereafter, until its December 2005 maturity date. Interest is payable at 10.15% for the term of the agreement. The fair value of the mortgage note, estimated by discounting future cash flows at the interest rates currently available for debt with the same credit rating, similar terms and maturity date, was approximately $48 million and $53 million at December 31, 1994 and 1993, respectively. 42 Fisher-Price Term Loan - ---------------------- The current portion of long-term liabilities as of December 31, 1993 included $100.0 million of term indebtedness to insurance companies. Following the merger, the Company reached an agreement with the lenders permitting prepayment of this obligation. The prepayment premium and write-off of unamortized issuance costs resulted in an extraordinary charge against earnings in the 1993 fourth quarter, net of an $8.8 million income tax benefit, of $14.7 million, or $0.06 per fully diluted share. 8% Convertible Subordinated Debentures ("8% Debentures") - -------------------------------------------------------- During the 1994 first quarter, the Company issued its Notice of Redemption to holders of the 8% Debentures. In lieu of redemption at a price of 104.571%, holders could elect to convert the 8% Debentures into the Company's common stock at a conversion price of $12.83 per share. During the 1994 first quarter, holders tendered the remaining $75.7 million of the 8% Debentures for conversion into 7.4 million common shares. Holders had previously tendered $24.3 million par value of the 8% Debentures for conversion into 2.4 million common shares during the 1993 fourth quarter. Scheduled Maturities - -------------------- The aggregate amounts of long-term debt and capitalized lease obligations maturing in the next five years are as follows (in thousands):

NOTE 5 - SHAREHOLDERS' EQUITY - ----------------------------- Preference Share Purchase Rights - -------------------------------- In 1992, the Board of Directors approved an extension of the Company's Preference Share Purchase Rights plan. The rights may be exercised by their holders to purchase shares of the Company's Series E Junior Participating Preference Stock upon the occurrence of certain events, including the acquisition, or announcement of intended acquisition, of 20 percent or more of Mattel's common stock by a person or group of affiliated or associated persons. The rights are subject to adjustment in the event of stock dividends, stock splits or other changes in the Company's common stock, and will expire on February 17, 2002, unless the plan is further extended or the rights are earlier redeemed or exchanged by the Company. Preferred and Preference Stock - ------------------------------ The Company is authorized to issue 3.0 million shares of $1.00 par value preferred stock and 20.0 million shares of $0.01 par value preference stock. No preferred shares are outstanding and the Company has no current plan to issue any such shares. In February 1992, 1.5 million shares of $0.01 par value preference shares were designated as Series E Junior Participating Preference Stock in connection with a distribution of Preference Share Purchase Rights to the Company's common shareholders. Series E shares are issuable only when rights become exercisable under the Preference Share Purchase Rights plan (see above). In connection with the IGI merger in February 1992, 864.3 thousand shares of $0.01 par value preference stock were designated as 12.5% Convertible Preference Stock, Series F, and issued to the IGI ESOP. Dividends are payable at the option of the Company and are cumulative. Additionally, when cash dividends are declared on the Company's common stock, Series F preference shares are entitled to participate in such distribution as if converted into common stock at that time. Each Series F share is convertible, at the option of the ESOP's trustee, into .854145 shares of Mattel common stock. The aggregate liquidation preference of the Series F shares as of December 31, 1994 was $33.8 million or $39.056 per share. The ESOP note receivable, which was secured by the Series F Preference Stock, was repaid in August 1994. Common Stock - ------------ Concurrently with their approval of the Fisher-Price merger in 1993, shareholders of the Company voted to amend the Mattel, Inc. certificate of incorporation to increase the number of common shares authorized from 150.0 million to 300.0 million shares. Stock Options - ------------- Under the Company's stock option plans, officers and other key employees may be granted nonqualified stock options, restricted stock awards and stock appreciation rights. Generally, options are exercisable contingent upon the grantees' continued employment with the Company, and in installments when permitted by the Board of Directors or its Compensation/Options Committee. As of December 31, 1994 and 1993, a total of 10.6 million shares and 15.5 million shares, respectively, of Mattel common stock were reserved for issuance under these plans. Nonqualified stock options are granted at not less than 100 percent of the fair market value of the Company's common stock on the date of award, and generally expire within ten years from date of grant. Restricted stock awards issued are subject to various restrictions. During the time period from the award date until the restrictions lapse, shares cannot be sold, assigned, pledged or otherwise encumbered by the recipients. As of December 31, 1994, restricted stock awards granted to Mattel executives totaled 742.2 thousand shares. The market value of these shares as of December 31, 1994 was charged to income as part of the 1994 restructuring. Any subsequent increases or decreases in market value through January 1, 1997, the end of the restriction period, will be reflected in the results of operations currently. 43 The following is a summary of stock option information for the Company's plans during the year (options in thousands):

(b) Average exercise price - $11.23 per share. Expiration dates vary from July 12, 1994 to December 15, 2003. (c) Average exercise price - $14.86 per share. Expiration dates vary from November 11, 1995 to August 25, 2004.
The Company's 1990 stock option plan provides that up to 1% of Mattel's outstanding common stock as determined on December 31 of the preceding year will be available for awards during each calendar year in which the plan is in effect. In connection with the Fisher-Price merger, shareholders approved the Board of Directors' recommendation of an increase of 4.7 million shares above the standard 1% limitation as set forth in the plan. The purpose of such increase was to accommodate the post-merger grant of awards to employees of Mattel and Fisher-Price as motivation for the successful integration and future operation of the combined business. The Fisher-Price Long-Term Incentive Plan of 1991 provided benefits for eligible participants in the form of stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, performance units and other awards as determined by the plan's administrative committee. Effective with the merger, all stock-based awards and benefits previously granted and outstanding under the plan became fully vested and, if not previously exercised, converted into rights to receive equivalent shares, as adjusted for the 1.275 (pre- split basis) merger exchange ratio, of Mattel common stock. Accordingly, 300.5 thousand Fisher-Price restricted stock awards outstanding became fully vested; the remaining unamortized deferred compensation of $3.0 million was recognized in the fourth quarter of 1993. Fisher-Price Stock Subscription Warrants - ---------------------------------------- In connection with their Term Loan, Fisher-Price had issued to the lenders detachable warrants allowing them to purchase shares of Fisher-Price stock, subject to certain antidilution requirements. In November 1992, Fisher- Price repurchased from the holders warrants representing rights to 1.5 million common shares. As of the effective date of the merger, the Company agreed to assume Fisher-Price's obligations pursuant to the provisions of the warrants. Change-of-control provisions of the warrants allowed the holders a six-month period from the merger date to elect to receive, in lieu of exercises for common shares, an amount in cash equal to the product obtained by multiplying the number of shares of common stock purchasable upon exercise by the highest closing market price of such shares, as reported on the NYSE Composite Tape during the period from August 19, 1993 through November 30, 1993, less the warrant exercise price. During June 1994, holders of 360.8 thousand warrants elected the cash option and received $4.9 million. The exercise of all outstanding warrants by the holders would result in delivery of approximately 1.0 million shares of the Company's common stock at an exercise price of $5.96462 per share. Conversion of 8% Debentures - --------------------------- During the 1994 first quarter, holders tendered $75.7 million of the 8% Debentures for conversion into 7.4 million common shares in response to the Company's Notice of Redemption. Holders had previously tendered $24.3 million par value of the 8% Debentures for conversion into 2.4 million common shares during the 1993 fourth quarter. Common Stock Repurchase Plan - ---------------------------- In May 1990, the Board of Directors authorized a stock repurchase plan which initially provided for annual repurchases on the open market of up to one percent of the Company's common stock to fund the stock option plans. In May 1993, the Board expanded the repurchase program to permit the repurchase of up to 15.6 million shares over the next four years. During 1994 and 1993, the Company purchased 3.7 million and 3.3 million shares, respectively. Shares repurchased, less 4.6 million shares reissued in 1994 and 3.5 million shares reissued in 1993, are included in treasury stock. Dividends and Capital Transactions - ---------------------------------- On December 19, 1994, the Board of Directors declared a five-for-four stock split on the Company's common stock, distributable on January 20, 1995 to shareholders of record as of January 6, 1995. Accordingly, $44.7 million was transferred from additional paid-in capital to common stock, representing the par value of additional shares issued. Similar transfers were made between paid-in capital and common stock in the amounts of $34.3 million and $48.0 million to reflect the respective declarations of a five- for-four stock split in November 1993 and a three-for-two stock split in May 1992. A regular quarterly cash dividend has been declared by the Board of Directors on the Company's common stock since the second quarter of 1990. 44 NOTE 6 - COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES - -------------------------------------- Leases - ------ The Company routinely enters into noncancelable lease agreements for premises and equipment used in the normal course of business. The following table shows the future minimum obligations under lease commitments in effect at December 31, 1994 (in thousands):
Capitalized Operating Leases Leases - -------------------------- ----------- --------- 1995 $ 400 $ 31,600 1996 400 26,000 1997 400 16,200 1998 400 14,300 1999 400 13,100 Thereafter 11,000 13,200 ----------- --------- 13,000 (a) 114,400 Less: sublease commitments - 200 ----------- --------- $13,000 $114,200 =========== ========= (a) Includes $10.3 million of imputed interest.
Rental expense under operating leases amounted to $33.7 million, $33.8 million and $32.1 million for 1994, 1993 and 1992, respectively, net of sublease income of $0.7 million, $0.4 million and $2.8 million. In connection with the discontinuance of certain operations in 1984, the Company remained obligated for a facility lease through 1998. The Company determined in April 1993 that it would not, upon the expiration of the sublease agreements, utilize such facility and made a lease termination payment to discharge its remaining obligations to the lessor. A net charge in the amount of $41.1 million, after related tax effects of $26.9 million, for the cost of the lease termination was charged to additional paid-in capital, consistent with the treatment accorded transactions which preceded the Company's 1987 quasi-reorganization. Commitments - ----------- In the normal course of business, the Company enters into contractual arrangements for future purchases of goods and services to ensure availability and timely delivery and to obtain and protect the Company's right to create and market certain toys. Such arrangements include commitments for future inventory purchases and royalty payments pursuant to licensing agreements. Certain of these commitments routinely contain provisions for guaranteed or minimum expenditures during the terms of the contracts. The Company has no significant exposure to credit risk in the event of nonperformance by any counterparty or group of counterparties to its outstanding commitments and foreign currency contracts. Market risk exposures exist with respect to foreign currency forward exchange contracts to the extent that currency fluctuations cannot be predicted with certainty. The Company seeks to mitigate its exposure to market risk through forecasting its future foreign currency positions and hedge requirements, retaining flexibility with respect to currencies used for international borrowing arrangements and intercompany invoicing, and varying the degree of coverage of individual foreign currency exposures, which may alternatively be left open, partially or fully hedged. By policy, the Company maintains hedge coverages between minimum and maximum percentages of its anticipated foreign currency exposures for any given year. Current and future commitments for guaranteed payments reflect the Company's focus on expanding its product lines through alliances with businesses in other industries, such as sporting goods and television and motion picture entertainment companies. The single largest commitment involves the Company's 1991 agreements with The Walt Disney Company. An extended licensing agreement permits the Company to use the Disney name and characters on preschool and infant products through 2001 and provides for the addition of certain other Disney characters and product lines to those previously licensed to the Company. In addition, a related ten-year agreement involves the Company's participation in attractions and toy stores at three Disney theme parks and the development of theme park toys. As of December 31, 1994, the Company had outstanding commitments for 1995 purchases of inventory of approximately $103 million. As of December 31, 1993, the Company had commitments for 1994 purchases of inventory of approximately $56 million. Licensing and related agreements provide for terms extending from 1995 through 2002 and contain provisions for future minimum payments as shown in the following table (in thousands):
Minimum Payments - ----------------------------------- --------- 1995 $ 52,000 1996 44,000 1997 43,000 1998 42,000 1999 43,000 Thereafter 80,000 --------- $304,000 =========
Royalty expense for the years ended December 31, 1994, 1993 and 1992 was $83.9 million, $69.2 million and $50.2 million, respectively. Foreign Currency Contracts - -------------------------- The Company enters into foreign currency forward exchange contracts and swap agreements primarily as hedges of inventory purchases, sales and other intercompany transactions denominated in foreign currencies to limit the effect of exchange rate fluctuations on the Company's results of operations and cash flows. These contracts generally have maturity dates ranging from one to fifteen months. Gains or losses related to hedged transactions are deferred and are recognized in results of operations as a part of the underlying transaction. Had the Company not entered into hedges covering a percentage of its foreign currency positions, the unfavorable effect on 1994 pre-tax income would have approximated $2 million. 45 As of December 31, 1994 and 1993, the Company held the following contracts to obtain U.S. dollars (in thousands):
1994 1993 ---------------------- ---------------------- Notional Notional Amount Fair Value Amount Fair Value ---------- ---------- ---------- ---------- Forwards $264,783 $215,631 Swaps 65,155 40,334 ---------- ---------- $329,938 $329,540 $255,965 $247,996 ========== ========== ========== ==========
Fair value reflects the amount, based on dealer quotes, the Company would receive at maturity for contracts involving the same currencies and maturity dates, if they had been entered into as of year-end 1994 and 1993, respectively. As of December 31, 1994 and 1993, the Company held the following contracts to purchase foreign currencies (in thousands):

Fair value reflects the amount, based on dealer quotes, the Company would pay at maturity for contracts involving the same currencies and maturity dates, if they had been entered into as of year-end 1994 and 1993, respectively. The following table summarizes the Company's foreign currency contracts by major currency as of December 31, 1994 and 1993 (in thousands of U.S. dollars):

In order to minimize the risk of counterparty non-performance, the Company executes its foreign currency forward exchange contracts and swap agreements with financial institutions believed to be credit-worthy, generally those that provide the Company with its working capital lines of credit. The Company does not trade in financial instruments nor does it enter into contracts for speculative purposes. Letters of Credit - ----------------- The Company had outstanding irrevocable letters of credit in the amount of $15.1 million and $31.8 million as of December 31, 1994 and 1993, respectively. These letters of credit, which have terms from one month to one year, collateralize the Company's obligations to third parties for the purchase of inventory. The fair value of these letters of credit approximates contract values based on the nature of the fee arrangements with the issuing banks. Litigation - ---------- The Company is involved in various litigation and other legal matters, including claims related to product liability and environmental cleanup, which are being addressed or defended in the ordinary course of business. Management believes that any liability which may potentially result upon resolution of such matters will not have a material adverse effect on the Company's consolidated financial position or results of operations. NOTE 7 - ACQUISITIONS AND NONRECURRING ITEMS - -------------------------------------------- On May 31, 1994, the Company acquired substantially all of the business assets and assumed the associated debts and liabilities of Kransco, a San Francisco-based designer, manufacturer and marketer of brand name recreational and sporting products, including POWER WHEELS battery-powered, ride-on vehicles; HULA HOOP and FRISBEE products marketed under the WHAM-O trademark; STREET JAM sporting goods; and MOREY BOOGIE bodyboards. The purchase price included net cash consideration of $254.6 million, including costs directly related to the acquisition. In addition, the Company repaid $20.0 million of Kransco's short-term borrowings concurrent with consummation of the asset purchase transaction. The asset purchase agreement also provides for future contingent consideration in the event that net sales of the POWER WHEELS product line reaches or exceeds certain levels in each of calendar years 1994, 1995 and 1996. The contingent consideration payable with respect to any year shall not exceed $8.6 million. As of December 31, 1994, $8.6 million of contingent consideration was payable, and as a result the goodwill initially recorded was increased. The acquisition has been accounted for under the purchase method of accounting and, accordingly, the operating results of Kransco have been included in the Company's consolidated financial statements since the date of acquisition. The estimated fair market value of assets and liabilities acquired was $99.4 million and $37.2 million, respectively. The excess of the aggregate purchase price over the estimated fair market value of the net assets acquired was approximately $221 million, which is being amortized on a straight-line basis over 20 years. 46 The following summary presents unaudited pro forma consolidated results of operations as if the acquisition had occurred at the beginning of 1994 and 1993, and includes adjustments for estimated amounts of goodwill amortization, depreciation of fixed assets acquired based on their estimated fair values, increased interest expense assuming the initial purchase consideration had resulted in additional short-term borrowing during the periods presented, and the elimination of intercompany transactions. The pro forma results are for illustrative purposes only, and do not purport to be indicative of the actual results which would have occurred had the transaction been consummated as of those earlier dates, nor are they indicative of results of operations which may occur in the future. These results reflect the highly seasonal nature of the business acquired and do not reflect the synergies achieved.

In July 1994, the Company acquired a majority of the shares of Spear, a company organized in the United Kingdom, that holds the rights to SCRABBLE in markets outside of the United States and Canada, and certain other games worldwide. Under the terms of the Company's offer, shareholders had the option to receive the purchase consideration of 11.5 pounds sterling per issued share in either cash, interest-bearing notes or in a combination of cash and notes. As of December 31, 1994, holders of 5.1 million shares of Spear had elected the cash option, receiving approximately 58 million pounds sterling, and holders of 0.3 million shares had elected to receive notes. The aggregate purchase price, including investment advisor and other directly related expenses, denominated in pounds sterling, was approximately $100 million. The acquisition has been accounted for by the purchase method and, accordingly, the results of operations of Spear have been included in the Company's consolidated financial statements since the date of acquisition. The estimated fair market value of assets and liabilities acquired was approximately $40 million and $35 million, respectively. The excess of cost over the estimated fair market value of tangible net assets acquired was approximately $95 million, which is being amortized on a straight-line basis over 20 years. In the 1994 fourth quarter, the Company recognized a $72.0 million pre- tax charge against continuing operations in connection with the consolidation of manufacturing operations and the reduction of headquarters expense and support functions worldwide. Of these charges, approximately $36 million was related to severance costs from elimination of approximately 1,000 positions, $15 million represented restricted stock awards that related to the Fisher-Price integration, $14 million for termination of various distribution and lease agreements, $4 million for the writedown of fixed assets to their net realizable value in connection with the elimination of excess manufacturing capacity, and other costs of $3 million. After related tax effects, the net $46.8 million charge impacted 1994 earnings by $0.21 per share on a fully diluted basis. Although no assurance can be given, the Company anticipates the restructuring will provide pre-tax cost savings of approximately $25 million during 1995, principally as a result of creating efficiencies and eliminating redundancies. Available cash reserves and cash flow generated from normal business operations will fund the costs of the restructuring, with no adverse impact expected on the Company's future liquidity, revenues or financial position. It is anticipated that substantially all amounts related to the restructuring will be expended during 1995. On November 30, 1993, a merger was consummated between the Company and Fisher-Price, one of the world's largest manufacturers and marketers of infant and preschool toys and juvenile products. The stock-for-stock transaction was approved by the shareholders of both companies, after which Fisher-Price became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. The merger agreement provided for the exchange of 1.275 shares of Mattel common stock for each outstanding Fisher-Price common share, and resulted in the issuance of 39.1 million shares, before stock splits (61.1 million shares after stock splits), valued, on the merger's effective date, at $1.19 billion. This transaction was accounted for as a pooling of interests, and accordingly, financial information for periods prior to the merger reflect retroactive restatement for the companies' combined financial position and operating results. Prior to July 1, 1991, the business of Fisher-Price was operated as a division of The Quaker Oats Company, and therefore, any such financial data have been excluded from the Company's combined consolidated results presented herein. In connection with its merger with Fisher-Price, the Company recognized a one-time charge of $115.0 million, pre-tax, in the 1993 fourth quarter. Of the total, approximately $17 million represented transaction costs of the merger, and $30 million related to the severance of key Fisher-Price executives. Following the merger, the Company commenced integrating and restructuring certain of the domestic and international business operations of the entities. Of the remaining $68 million of estimated costs, approximately $13 million represented writedowns of fixed assets in 47 connection with the elimination of duplicative administration and plant facilities. The remainder represented expenditures related to the combination of the entities' worldwide business operations, including staff reductions and outplacement expenses, costs of terminating contracts with lessors and distributors and fees paid to consultants in connection with the integration and restructuring process. After related tax effects, the net $90.4 million charge impacted 1993 earnings by $0.40 per share on a fully diluted basis. As of December 31, 1994, the integration and restructuring activity provided for by the 1993 charge was substantially complete and amounts previously accrued had been paid. The cost savings realized by the Company as a result of the consolidation of facilities and related staff reductions were comparable to the anticipated $45 million, and the type and amount of charges actually incurred approximated the amounts included in the provision. In 1992, the Company concluded its merger with International Games, Inc. ("IGI"), a creator, manufacturer and marketer of proprietary family and educational card and board games, including UNO and SKIP-BO. The merger, accounted for as a pooling of interests, was effected by exchanging all of IGI's outstanding voting preferred and common stock for 2.0 million shares of Mattel common stock and 0.9 million shares of Mattel 12.5% Convertible Preference Stock, Series F, representing a combined value of $58.5 million. NOTE 8 - FINANCIAL INFORMATION BY GEOGRAPHIC AREA - ------------------------------------------------- The Company's business consists of the design, manufacture and marketing of toys on a worldwide basis. The Company's international operations are located principally in Europe, Canada, Latin America and Asia. Consolidated liabilities of these subsidiaries were approximately $421 million, $300 million and $311 million at December 31, 1994, 1993 and 1992, respectively. The Company's toy products are sold throughout the world. Credit is granted to customers on an unsecured basis, and generally provides for extended payment terms which result in a substantial portion of trade receivables being collected during the latter half of the year. In the United States, toys are distributed directly to large retailers, including discount and free-standing toy stores, chain stores, department stores, other retail outlets, and to a limited extent, wholesalers. Internationally, the Company sells its products directly in Argentina, Australia, Austria, the Benelux countries, Canada, Chile, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal, Scandinavia, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Venezuela, and in certain areas of Eastern Europe and Asia. In 1995, the Company will begin selling its products directly in Colombia through a newly established subsidiary. The Company's products are marketed principally through distributors in certain parts of Latin America, the Middle East and Southeast Asia, and the Company also licenses some of its products to outside manufacturers for sale in Brazil, Peru, and other Latin American countries. In the fourth quarter of 1993, the Company's distributorship agreement for Nintendo products in Australia was terminated. The Company ceased distribution of Nintendo products in Canada and Italy during the first and third quarters of 1992, respectively. The Company's worldwide sales to Toys R Us and Wal-Mart, the only customers accounting for more than 10% of 1994 consolidated net sales, were $734.1 million and $417.7 million, respectively. At December 31, 1994, accounts receivable from Toys R Us and Wal-Mart were $156.6 million and $104.3 million, respectively. In 1993, worldwide sales to Toys R Us and Wal-Mart were $598.7 million and $277.3 million, respectively, and in 1992, worldwide sales to Toys R Us were $466.4 million. At December 31, 1993, accounts receivable from Toys R Us and Wal-Mart were $156.8 million and $63.2 million, respectively. Information by geographic area is set forth in the tables below. Profit from operations represents income before income taxes, interest expense and general corporate expenses. Sales between geographic areas are based upon transfer prices which include manufacturing cost and profit.

Statements of Cash Flows - ------------------------ For the years ended December 31, 1994, 1993 and 1992, cash paid for interest totaled $52.9 million, $76.1 million and $67.8 million, respectively. Cash paid for income taxes in each of the three years was $66.3 million, $55.7 million and $72.5 million, respectively. Significant noncash investing and financing activities were as follows: . During the 1994 first quarter, holders tendered $75.7 million aggregate par value of the 8% Debentures for conversion into 7.4 million shares of the Company's common stock. During the 1993 fourth quarter, holders tendered $24.3 million aggregate par value of the 8% Debentures for conversion into 2.4 million shares of the Company's common stock. . The November 1993 merger with Fisher-Price in a stock-for-stock transaction neither used nor provided cash (see Note 7). The Company's consolidated financial statements, consistent with pooling of interests accounting treatment, reflect retroactive restatement for the effects of the merger. Accordingly, the assets and liabilities of Fisher-Price and the changes in shareholders' equity as a result of the merger are included in the combined consolidated financial statements as of July 1, 1991, but are not includable as of December 1990 while Fisher-Price was a division of The Quaker Oats Company. Because the merger transaction neither provided nor used cash with respect to the combined companies, the effect of consolidating financial statement balances as of July 1, 1991 is not reflected in the statements of cash flows. . The effects of changes in accounting principles related to the Company's adoption of Statements of Financial Accounting Standards Nos. 106 and 109 in the 1993 first quarter neither provided nor used cash, and accordingly, have been excluded from the statement of cash flows. 50 MANAGEMENT REPORT ON RESPONSIBILITY FOR FINANCIAL REPORTING ----------------------------------------------------------- Management is responsible for the preparation of the Company's consolidated financial statements and the related financial and nonfinancial information appearing in this Annual Report. The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and, in the opinion of management, present fairly the Company's financial position, results of operations and cash flows. The financial statements necessarily contain some amounts that are based on the best estimates and judgments of management. The Company maintains accounting and internal control systems which management believes are adequate to provide reasonable assurance, in relation to reasonable cost, as to the integrity and reliability of the financial statements and as to protection of assets from unauthorized use or disposition. The selection and training of qualified personnel, the establishment and communication of accounting and administrative policies and procedures, and a program of internal audit are important elements of these control systems. The Company's internal auditors are directed to examine the adequacy and effectiveness of the Company's system of internal accounting, administrative and operational controls. They conduct formal and systematic reviews to determine that operations are adequately controlled and to assure that assets are effectively safeguarded. The Board of Directors has appointed an audit committee, composed entirely of nonemployee directors. The committee meets regularly with financial management, internal auditors and the independent accountants to review accounting control, auditing and financial reporting matters. Price Waterhouse, independent accountants, have been retained to audit the Company's consolidated financial statements. They conduct a review of internal accounting controls to the extent required by generally accepted accounting principles and perform such tests and related procedures as they deem necessary to arrive at an opinion on the fairness of the financial statements. /s/ Francesca Luzuriaga - ----------------------- Francesca Luzuriaga Executive Vice President, Finance REPORT OF INDEPENDENT ACCOUNTANTS --------------------------------- To the Board of Directors and Shareholders of Mattel, Inc. In our opinion, based upon our audits and the report of other auditors, the accompanying consolidated balance sheets and the related consolidated statements of income, of shareholders' equity and of cash flows present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Mattel, Inc. and its subsidiaries at December 31, 1994 and 1993, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended December 31, 1994, in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management; our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. We did not audit the 1992 financial statements of Fisher-Price, Inc. and its subsidiaries, which statements reflect total assets of $455,198,000 at January 3, 1993 and total net sales of $693,951,000 for the period ended January 3, 1993. Those statements were audited by other auditors whose report thereon has been furnished to us, and our opinion expressed herein, insofar as it relates to the amounts included for Fisher-Price, Inc. and its subsidiaries, is based solely on the report of the other auditors. We conducted our audits of these statements in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards which require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, and evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits and the report of other auditors provide a reasonable basis for the opinion expressed above. /s/ PRICE WATERHOUSE LLP - ------------------------ Los Angeles, California February 6, 1995 51 DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS ---------------------- Mattel, Inc. and Subsidiaries
