PART I ------ Item 1. Business - ------- -------- The Company designs, develops, manufactures, markets and distributes a broad variety of toy products on a worldwide basis. Measured by revenues, the Company is the second largest toy company in the world. The Company's three strongest principal product lines are BARBIE fashion dolls and doll clothing and accessories, FISHER-PRICE toys and juvenile products and the Company's Disney- licensed toys, each of which has broad worldwide appeal. Additional current principal product lines consist of die-cast vehicles and accessories, including HOT WHEELS; large dolls; preschool toys, including SEE 'N SAY talking toys; and the UNO and SKIP-BO games. Revenues for 1993 of $2.7 billion were a record level for the Company. In November 1993, Fisher-Price, Inc. ("Fisher-Price") became a wholly- owned subsidiary of Mattel as a result of a merger transaction (the "Fisher- Price Merger"). See Note 2 to the Consolidated Financial Statements in the Annual Report to Shareholders for the year ended December 31, 1993 (the "Annual Report to Shareholders"), incorporated herein by reference and Item 4 "Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders" below. As used herein, unless the context requires otherwise, "Mattel" refers to Mattel, Inc., and its subsidiaries other than Fisher-Price, and the "Company" refers to Mattel together with Fisher-Price. 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) 524-2000. 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 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 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. 2 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 increasing reliance among retailers on the large toy companies because of their financial stability and their 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. 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 seasonal 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." 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 three strongest core product lines are BARBIE fashion dolls and doll clothing and accessories, FISHER-PRICE toys and juvenile products, and the Company's Disney-licensed toys, each of which has broad worldwide appeal. Additional current core product lines consist of die-cast vehicles and accessories, including HOT WHEELS; 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 3 profitability. For the year ended December 31, 1993, core products accounted for approximately 86% 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. 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 1993 included the HOLLYWOOD HAIR BARBIE doll and the MY SIZE BARBIE doll, the addition of a series of dolls based on the animated feature "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" to the Company's Disney line, the BABY WALK 'N ROLL and SALLY SECRETS large dolls and the addition of the ATTACK PACK line of monster trucks to the Company's HOT WHEELS line. The Company also introduced a line of activity toys called McDONALD'S HAPPY MEAL MAGIC. New product introductions in 1994 will include the Gymnast BARBIE, Bedtime BARBIE and DR. BARBIE dolls; Fisher-Price's new plush RUMPLE BEARS, TRIPLE ARCADE electronic game, and electronic learning toys; the additions of COLOR FX and HOT WHEELS TOP SPEED PIPEJAMMER vehicles to the HOT WHEELS line; and the addition to the Company's Disney line of a series of plush products, action figures and small dolls based on the animated feature "The Lion King". The Company also will introduce a new line of large dolls called DREAMLAND Babies, and Nickelodeon THINGMAKER, a new activity toy. In conjunction with the release of the feature film "The Flintstones," the Company will introduce a line of small dolls, large dolls, action figures and accessories. International Operations - ------------------------ Revenues from the Company's international operations represented approximately 40% of total consolidated revenues in 1993. 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 wholly-owned subsidiaries in Australia, Austria, the Benelux countries, Canada, Chile, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Scandinavia, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and in certain areas of Eastern Europe and Asia. In 1994, the Company will begin selling its products directly in Argentina, Portugal and Venezuela 4 through newly established subsidiaries. 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. Until December 1993, Mattel also distributed the Nintendo Entertainment System and related products in Australia. 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 intercompany purchases and sales of inventory in order to protect local cash flows and profitability from currency fluctuations. See "Foreign Currency Contracts." 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, McDonald's, Inc., MCA Universal Merchandising, Inc., the Time Warner Entertainment Company, L.P. and DC Comics, Inc. units of Time Warner Inc., LucasArts Entertainment Company, Turner Home Entertainment, Inc., Hanna-Barbera Productions, Inc., American Greeting Cards, Inc., Children's Television Workshop, and Viacom International, Inc. relating to its Nickelodeon properties. A number of these licenses relate to product lines that are significant to the Company. Independent toy designers and developers bring products to the Company and are generally paid a royalty on the net sales 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, 1993, December 31, 1992 and December 31, 1991, the Company expended approximately $75 million, $77 million and $56 million, respectively, in connection with the design and development of products, exclusive of royalty payments. 5 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 Disney World and "Autopia" at Euro Disneyland under a ten-year agreement with The Walt Disney Company. The Company also participates in toy stores in Disneyland and in the Disney Village Market Place near Disney World and commenced participation in a new toy store in Euro Disneyland in December 1993. Separately, the Company has established a total of six 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, 1993, December 31, 1992 and December 31, 1991, Mattel spent approximately $427 million (16% of net sales), $403 million (16% of net sales) and $308 million (15% 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, 1993, Toys R Us and Wal-Mart accounted for approximately 22% and 10%, respectively, of worldwide consolidated net sales and were the only customers accounting for 10% or more of consolidated net sales. 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 department, 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 6 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 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 Fisher-Price Merger, Mattel acquired manufacturing facilities in the states of Kentucky and New York, and in England and Mexico, which are in addition to its existing manufacturing facilities in the Far East (China, Indonesia and Malaysia), Mexico and Italy. The Company also utilizes independent contractors to manufacture products in the United States, 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") status under U.S. tariff laws, which provides the most favorable category of U.S. import duties. As a result of conditions in China, there has been, and may be in the future, opposition to the extension of MFN status for China. In May 1993, President Clinton signed an executive order extending MFN status for China through June 3, 1994. 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 elsewhere. Toward that end, the Company has extended its production capacity in other countries. In addition, all of the manufacturing facilities gained by the Company in the Fisher-Price Merger are outside of China, although some Fisher-Price product is sourced in China. 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. 7 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, although regulations implementing the quotas have yet to be promulgated. 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. 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 licensing 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 7 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, 1993, December 31, 1992 and December 31, 1991 were approximately $69 million, $50 million and $39 million, respectively. The Company also distributes products which are independently designed and manufactured. The Company's agreement for the distribution of the Nintendo Entertainment System and related products in Australia was terminated in December 1993. Foreign Currency Contracts - -------------------------- From time to time, the Company enters into foreign currency forward exchange contracts, swaps and options as hedges of inventory purchases and 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 currency fluctuations. The Company does not speculate in foreign currencies. For additional information regarding foreign currency contracts, see Note 7 to the Consolidated Financial Statements in the Annual Report to Shareholders, incorporated herein by reference. 8 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 agreement in effect during 1993, which was recently replaced (see below), was amended in the first quarter of 1993 to increase the total facility to $350 million from $250 millon and to release the banks' lien on Mattel's inventory and receivables. Within the total facility, up to $175.0 million was a standard revolving credit line available for either advances or letters of credit in support of commercial paper issuances. Interest was charged at alternative rates selected by Mattel not greater than the prime rate charged by the agent bank, plus a commitment fee of 3/8 of one percent of the unused line available for advances and 1/2 of one percent of the amount utilized for standby letters of credit. The remaining $175.0 million was available for nonrecourse purchases of certain trade accounts receivable of Mattel by the commercial bank group providing the credit line. The agreement required Mattel to comply with certain consolidated financial ratios and to maintain certain levels of income. In 1993, the Company's domestic seasonal borrowings outstanding under the revolving credit agreement and other bank borrowings averaged approximately $45.1 million and reached a peak of approximately $167.0 million during the third quarter. This balance was fully repaid by December 31, 1993. The Company's 1993 seasonal borrowings outstanding under foreign credit lines averaged approximately $55.1 million, reached a peak of approximately $76.1 million in the third quarter, and were also fully repaid by year end. Effective in March 1994, the Company renegotiated its revolving credit agreement. The new agreement consists of unsecured facilities providing a total of $500.0 million in seasonal financing from the same group of commercial banks. The facilities provide for up to $250.0 million in advances and backup for commercial paper issuances ($125.0 million of which is a 364-day facility and the other $125.0 million is a 3-year facility), and up to an additional $250.0 million (a 3-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. Concurrently with the consummation of the Fisher-Price Merger, the Fisher- Price domestic seasonal credit line was terminated with a view to financing Fisher- Price's domestic seasonal working capital needs under Mattel's revolving credit agreement. During 1994, the Company expects to finance Fisher-Price's foreign seasonal working capital needs under Mattel's seasonal credit facilities and to terminate Fisher-Price's foreign seasonal credit lines. 9 Borrowings for seasonal financing were significantly reduced in 1993 primarily as a result of a higher level of cash at the beginning of the year, the issuance by the Company in May 1993 of $100 million aggregate principal amount of 6-3/4% Notes due 2000 and the utilization of the Company's accounts receivable sales facility. 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. 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. 10 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. 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, 1993. The U.S. Consumer Price Index increased 2.7% in 1993, 2.9% in 1992 and 3.1% in 1991. The Company is afforded some protection from the impact of inflation as a result of high turnover of inventories and benefitted 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, 1993, the Company's total number of employees, including its international operations, was approximately 21,000. 11 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:

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 Fisher-Price Merger, Mattel acquired the approximately 288,000 square foot Fisher-Price headquarters building and a second smaller office building in East Aurora, New York and manufacturing, distribution and warehousing facilities in Kentucky, New York, Tennessee, Belgium, Canada, Mexico and the United Kingdom. In addition, Fisher-Price owns or leases office and showroom space in New York, Texas, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Mexico and the United Kingdom. The Company is currently in the process of 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, underutilized or redundant of Mattel facilities. 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 $850,000. 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. Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders - ------ --------------------------------------------------- A Special Meeting of Stockholders of Mattel was held on November 30, 1993 to consider the three proposals described below. Proxies for the meeting were solicited pursuant to Regulation 14A of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and there was no solicitation in opposition to that of management. Each of the proposals was approved based upon the respective tallies of votes set forth below. 14 Proposal 1: To approve the issuance of shares of Mattel common stock in connection with the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of August 19, 1993, among Mattel, MAT Acquisition, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mattel ("Sub"), and Fisher-Price pursuant to which (i) Sub was merged into Fisher-Price and Fisher-Price became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mattel, and (ii) each outstanding share of Fisher-Price common stock (other than shares owned by Fisher-Price as treasury stock or by its subsidiaries or by Mattel or its subsidiaries, all of which were canceled), were converted into 1.275 shares of Mattel common stock, including the corresponding percentage of rights to purchase Mattel's Series E Junior Participating Preference Stock.

We have audited the consolidated balance sheet of Fisher-Price, Inc. and subsidiaries as of January 3, 1993, and the related consolidated statements of income, stockholder's equity and cash flows for the fiscal year then ended. We have also audited the financial statement schedules. These financial statements and financial statement schedules are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements and financial statement schedules 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 financial position of Fisher-Price, Inc. and subsidiaries as of January 3, 1993, and the consolidated results of their operations and their cash flows for the fiscal year then ended 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 - --------------------- Boston, Massachusetts February 4, 1993 19 REPORT OF INDEPENDENT PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS ---------------------------------------- To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of Fisher-Price, Inc.: We have audited the consolidated statement of income, stockholders' equity and cash flows of Fisher-Price, Inc. (a Delaware Corporation) and subsidiaries for the six months ended December 29, 1991, prior to the restatement (and, therefore, are not presented herein) for the merger between Mattel, Inc. and Fisher-Price, Inc. as described in Note 2 to the Mattel, Inc. and subsidiaries consolidated financial statements included in Mattel, Inc.'s Form 10-K as of December 31, 1993. Fisher-Price, Inc.'s consolidated financial statements and schedules related thereto referred to below are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on Fisher-Price, Inc.'s consolidated financial statements and schedules 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 financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the results of operations and cash flows of Fisher-Price, Inc. and subsidiaries for the six months ended December 29, 1991, in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. Our audit was made for the purpose of forming an opinion on the basic financial statements prior to the restatement, taken as a whole. The schedules, prior to the restatement (and therefore, not presented herein), listed in Part IV, Item 14(a)2 are presented for purposes of complying with the Securities and Exchange Commission's rules and are not part of the basic financial statements. Fisher-Price, Inc.'s schedules, prior to restatement, have been subjected to the auditing procedures applied in the audit of the basic financial statements and, in our opinion, fairly state in all material respects the financial data required to be set forth therein in relation to the basic financial statements, prior to restatement, taken as a whole. /s/ ARTHUR ANDERSEN & CO. - ------------------------- Rochester, New York February 11, 1992 20 (2) Financial Statement Schedules for the years ended December 31, 1993, December 31, 1992 and December 31, 1991 (1) Schedule II - Amounts Receivable from Related Parties and Underwriters, Promoters, and Employees Other than Related Parties Schedule VIII - 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.

                              MATTEL, INC.

               (Originally incorporated on March 6, 1968)

       FIRST:       The name of the corporation (hereinafter called the
"Company") is MATTEL, INC.

       SECOND:      The registered office of the Company in the State of
Delaware is located at Corporation Trust Center, 1209 Orange Street, in the
City of Wilmington, in the County of New Castle.  The name of its
registered agent at that address is The Corporation Trust Company.

       THIRD:       The purpose of the Company is to engage in any lawful
act or activity for which corporations may be organized under the General
Corporation Law of Delaware.

       FOURTH:      The Company is authorized to issue a total of three
hundred twenty three million (323,000,000) shares of all classes of stock.
Of such total number of authorized shares of stock, three hundred million
(300,000,000) shares are Common Stock, each of which shares of Common
Stock has a par value of One Dollar ($1.00), three million (3,000,000)
shares are Preferred Stock, each of which shares of Preferred Stock has a
par value of One Dollar ($1.00), and twenty million (20,000,000) shares of
Preference Stock, each of which shares of Preference Stock has a par value
of one cent ($0.01).

       A statement of the designations of the authorized classes of stock or
of any series thereof, and the powers, preferences and relative, participating,
optional or other special rights, and qualifications, limitations or
restrictions thereof, or of the authority of the Board of Directors to fix by
resolution or resolutions such designations and other terms, is as follows:

       A.    Preferred Stock and Preference Stock:

       Shares of Preferred Stock and Preference Stock may be issued from
time to time in one or more series.

       The Board of Directors is hereby authorized, within the limitations
and restrictions stated in this Article FOURTH, to fix by resolution or
resolutions the designation of each series of Preferred Stock and Preference
Stock and the powers, preferences and relative, participating, optional or
other special rights, and qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereof,
including without limiting the generality of the foregoing, such provisions as
may be desired concerning voting, redemption, dividends, dissolution or the
distribution of assets,

                                       1


conversion or exchange, and such other subjects or
matters as may be fixed by resolution or resolutions of the Board of
Directors under the General Corporation Law of Delaware.

       If any proposed amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation of the
Company would alter or change the preferences, special rights or powers
given to any one or more outstanding series of Preferred Stock or
Preference Stock so as to affect such series adversely, or would authorize
the issuance of a class or classes of stock having preferences or rights with
respect to dividends or dissolution or the distribution of assets that would
be superior to the preferences or rights of such series of Preferred Stock or
Preference Stock, then the holders of each such series of Preferred Stock
or Preference Stock so affected by the amendment shall be entitled to vote
as a series upon such amendment, and the affirmative vote of two-thirds
(2/3) of the outstanding shares of each such series shall be necessary to the
adoption thereof, in addition to such other vote as may be required by the
General Corporation Law of Delaware.

       The number of authorized shares of Preferred Stock and Preference
Stock may be increased or decreased by the affirmative vote of the holders
of a majority of the stock of the Company entitled to vote, without there
being a class vote of the Preferred Stock or Preference Stock.

       B.    Common Stock:

       Subject to all of the preferences and rights of the Preferred Stock
and the Preference Stock or a series of either that may be fixed by a
resolution or resolutions of the Board of Directors, dividends may be paid
on the Common Stock as and when declared by the Board of Directors, out
of any funds of the Company legally available for the payment of such
dividends.

       Except as may otherwise be provided by a resolution or resolutions
of the Board of Directors concerning the Preferred Stock and the
Preference Stock or a series of either, or by this Certificate of Incorporation
or the General Corporation Law of Delaware, the holders of the shares of
Common Stock issued and outstanding shall have and possess the exclusive
right to notice of stockholders' meetings and the exclusive power to vote.

       C.    Series E Junior Participating Preference Stock:

       The designated powers, preferences and relative participating,
optional or other special rights, and qualifications, limitations or
restrictions thereof, of the Series E Junior Participating Preference Stock

designated as "Series E Junior Participating Preference Stock" (the "Series
E Preference Stock") and the number of shares constituting the Series E
Preference Stock shall be 2,000,000.  Such number of shares may be
increased or decreased by resolution of the Board of Directors;

                                       2


provided,
that no decrease shall reduce the number of shares of Series E Preference
Stock to a number less than the number of shares then outstanding plus the
number of shares reserved for issuance upon the exercise of outstanding
options, rights or warrants or upon the conversion of any outstanding
securities issued by the Company convertible into Series E Preference
Stock.


       2.    Dividends and Distributions.

             (A)    Subject to the rights of the holders of any shares of
             any series of Preferred Stock, par value $1.00 per share (the
             "Preferred Stock"), of the Company or Preference Stock (or
             any similar stock) ranking prior and superior to the Series E
             Preference Stock with respect to dividends, the holders of
             shares of Series E Preference Stock, in preference to the
             holders of Common Stock, par value $1.00 per share (the
             "Common Stock"), of the Company, and of any other junior
             stock, shall be entitled to receive, when, as and if declared by
             the Board of Directors out of funds legally available for the
             purpose, quarterly dividends payable in cash on the first day
             of March, June, September and December in each year (each
             such date being referred to herein as a "Quarterly Dividend
             Payment Date"), commencing on the first Quarterly Dividend
             Payment Date after the first issuance of a share or fraction of
             a share of Series E Preference Stock, in an amount per share
             (rounded to the nearest cent) equal to the greater of (a) $1
             or (b) subject to the provision for adjustment hereinafter set
             forth, 100 times the aggregate per share amount of all cash
             dividends, and 100 times the aggregate per share amount
             (payable in kind) of all non-cash dividends or other
             distributions, other than a dividend payable in shares of
             Common Stock or a subdivision of the outstanding shares of
             Common Stock (by reclassification or otherwise), declared on
             the Common Stock since the immediately preceding
             Quarterly Dividend Payment Date or, with respect to the first
             Quarterly Dividend Payment Date, since the first issuance of
             any share or fraction of a share of Series E Preference Stock.
             In the event the Company shall at any time declare or pay
             any dividend on the Common Stock payable in shares of
             Common Stock, or effect  subdivision or combination or
             consolidation of the outstanding shares of Common Stock (by
             reclassification or otherwise that by payment of a dividend in
             shares of Common Stock) into a greater or lesser number of
             shares of Common Stock, then in each such case the amount
             to which holders of shares of Series E Preference Sock were
             entitled immediately prior to such event under clause (b) of
             the preceding sentence shall be adjusted by multiplying such
             amount by fraction, the numerator of which is the number of
             shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after such
             event and the denominator of which is the number of shares
             of Common Stock that were outstanding immediately prior to
             such event.

                                       3


             (B)    The Company shall declare a dividend or distribution
             on the Series E Preference Stock as provided in paragraph
             (A) of this Section immediately after it declares a dividend or
             distribution on the Common Stock (other than a dividend
             payable in shares of Common Stock); provided that, in the
             event no dividend or distribution shall have been declared on
             the Common Stock during the period between any Quarterly
             Dividend Payment Date and the next subsequent Quarterly
             Dividend Payment Date, a dividend of $1 per share on the
             Series E Preference Stock shall nevertheless be payable on
             such subsequent Quarterly Dividend Payment Date.

             (C)    Dividends shall begin to accrue and be cumulative on
             outstanding shares of Series E Preference Stock from the
             Quarterly Dividend Payment Date next preceding the date of
             issue of such shares, unless the date of issue of such shares is
             prior to the record date for the first Quarterly Dividend
             Payment Date, in which case dividends on such shares shall
             begin to accrue from the date of issue of such shares, or
             unless the date of issue is a Quarterly Dividend Payment
             Date or is a date after the record date for the determination
             of holders of shares of Series E Preference Stock entitled to
             receive a quarterly dividend and before such Quarterly
             Dividend Payment Date, in either of which events such
             dividends shall begin to accrue and be cumulative from such
             Quarterly Dividend Payment Date.  Accrued but unpaid
             dividends shall not bear interest.  Dividends paid on the
             shares of Series E Preference Stock in an amount less than
             the total amount of such dividends at the time accrued and
             payable on such shares shall be allocated pro rata on a share-
             by-share basis among all such shares at the time outstanding.
             The Board of Directors may fix a record date for the
             determination of holders of shares of Series E Preference
             Stock entitled to receive payment of a dividend or
             distribution declared thereon, which record date shall be not
             more than 60 days prior to the date fixed for the payment
             thereof.

       3.    Voting Rights.      The holders of shares of Series E
Preference Stock shall have the following voting rights:

             (A)    Subject to the provision for adjustment hereinafter set
             forth, each share of Series E Preference Stock shall entitle
             the holder thereof to 100 votes on all matters submitted to a
             vote of the stockholders of the Company.  In the event the
             Company shall at any time declare or pay any dividend on the
             Common Stock payable in shares of Common Stock, or effect
             a subdivision or combination or consolidation of the
             outstanding shares of Common Stock (by reclassification or
             otherwise than by payment of a dividend in shares of
             Common Stock) into a greater or lesser number of shares of
             Common Stock, then in each such case the number of votes
             per share to which holders of shares of Series E Preference
             Stock were entitled immediately prior to such event shall be
             adjusted by multiplying such number by a fraction, the

                                       4


             numerator of which is the number of shares of Common
             Stock outstanding immediately after such event and the
             denominator of which is the number of shares of Common
             Stock that were outstanding immediately prior to such event.

             (B)    Except as otherwise provided herein, in any other
             Certificate of Designations creating a series of Preferred
             Stock or Preference Stock or any similar stock, or by law, the
             holders of shares of Series E Preference Stock and the
             holders of shares of Common Stock and any other capital
             stock of the Company having general voting rights shall vote
             together as one class on all matters submitted to a vote of
             stockholders of the Company.

             (C)    Except as set forth herein, or as otherwise provided by
             law, holders of Series E Preference Stock shall have no
             special voting rights and their consent shall not be required
             (except to the extent they are entitled to vote with holders of
             Common Stock as set forth herein) for taking any corporate
             action.

       4.    Certain Restrictions.

             (A)    Whenever quarterly dividends or other dividends or
             distributions payable on the Series E Preference Stock as
             provided in Section 2 are in arrears, thereafter and until all
             accrued and unpaid dividends and distributions, whether or
             not declared, on shares of Series E Preference Stock
             outstanding shall have been paid in full, the Company shall
             not:

                    (i)    declare or pay dividends, or make any other
                    distributions, on any shares of stock ranking junior
                    (either as to dividends or upon liquidation, dissolution
                    or winding up) to the Series E Preference Stock;

                    (ii)   declare or pay dividends, or make any other
                    distributions, on any shares of stock ranking on a
                    parity (either as to dividends or upon liquidation,
                    dissolution or winding up) with the Series E
                    Preference Stock, except dividends paid ratably on the
                    Series E Preference Stock and all such parity stock on
                    which dividends are payable or in arrears in
                    proportion to the total amounts to which the holders
                    of all such shares are then entitled;

                    (iii) redeem or purchase or otherwise acquire for
                    consideration shares of any stock ranking junior
                    (either as to dividends or upon liquidation, dissolution
                    or winding up) to the Series E Preference Stock,
                    provided that the Company may at any time redeem,
                    purchase or otherwise acquire shares of any such
                    junior stock in exchange for shares of any stock of the
                    Company ranking junior (as to dividends and upon

                                       5


                    dissolution, liquidation and winding up) to the Series
                    E Preference Stock; or

                    (iv)   redeem or purchase or otherwise acquire for
                    consideration any shares of Series E Preference Stock,
                    or any shares of stock ranking on a parity (either as to
                    dividends or upon liquidation, dissolution or winding
                    up) with the Series E Preference Stock, except in
                    accordance with a purchase offer made in writing or
                    by publication (as determined by the Board of
                    Directors) to all holders of such shares upon such
                    terms as the Board of Directors, after consideration of
                    the respective annual dividend rates and other relative
                    rights and preferences of the respective series and
                    classes, shall determine in good faith will result in fair
                    and equitable treatment among the respective series
                    or classes.

             (B)    The Company shall not permit any subsidiary of the
             Company to purchase or otherwise acquire for consideration
             any shares of stock of the Company unless the Company
             could, under paragraph (A) of this Section 4, purchase or
             otherwise acquire such shares at such time and in such
             manner.

       5.    Reacquired Shares.  Any shares of Series E Preference Stock
purchased or otherwise acquired by the Company in any manner whatsoever
shall be retired and canceled promptly after the acquisition thereof.  All
such shares shall upon their cancellation become authorized but unissued
shares of Preference Stock and may be reissued as  part of a new series of
Preference Stock subject to the conditions and restrictions on issuance set
forth herein, in the Certificate of Incorporation, or in any other Certificate
of Designation creating a series of Preferred Stock or Preference Stock or
any similar stock or as otherwise required by law.

       6.    Liquidation, Dissolution or Winding Up. Upon any
liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company, no distribution shall
be made (A) to the holders of shares of stock ranking junior (either as to
dividends or upon liquidation, dissolution or winding up) to the Series E
Preference Stock unless, prior thereto, the holders of shares of Series E
Preference Stock shall have received $100 per share, plus an amount equal
to accrued and unpaid dividends and distributions thereon, whether or not
declared, to the date of such payment, provided that the holders of shares
of Series E Preference Stock shall be entitled to receive an aggregate
amount per share, subject to the provision for adjustment hereinafter set
forth, equal to 100 times the aggregate amount to be distributed per share
to holders of shares of Common Stock, or (B) to the holders of shares of
stock ranking on a parity (either as to dividends or upon liquidation,
dissolution or winding up) with the Series E Preference Stock, except
distributions made ratably on the Series E Preference Stock and all such
parity stock in proportion to the total amounts to which the holders of all
such shares are entitled upon such liquidation, dissolution or winding up.
In the event the Company shall at any time declare or pay any dividend on
the Common Stock payable in shares of Common Stock, or effect a
subdivision or combination or consolidation of the

                                       6


outstanding shares of
Common Stock (by reclassification or otherwise than by payment of a
dividend in shares of Common Stock) into a greater or lesser number of
shares of Common Stock, then in each such case the aggregate amount to
which holders of shares of Series E Preference Stock were entitled
immediately prior to such event under the provision in clause (A) of the
preceding sentence shall be adjusted by multiplying such amount by a
fraction the numerator of which is the number of shares of Common Stock
outstanding immediately after such event and the denominator of which is
the number of shares of Common Stock that were outstanding immediately
prior to such event.

       7.    Consolidation, Merger, etc.       In case the Company shall
enter into any consolidation, merger, combination or other transaction in
which the shares of Common Stock are exchanged for or changed into other
stock or securities, cash and/or any other property, then in any such case
each share of Series E Preference Stock shall at the same time be similarly
exchanged or changed into an amount per share, subject to the provision for
adjustment hereinafter set forth, equal to 100 times the aggregate amount
of stock, securities, cash and/or any other property (payable in kind), as the
case may be, into which or for which each share of Common Stock is
changed or exchanged.  In the event the Company shall at any time declare
or pay any dividend on the Common Stock payable in shares of Common
Stock, or effect a subdivision or combination or consolidation of the
outstanding shares of Common Stock (by reclassification or otherwise than
by payment of a dividend in shares of Common Stock) into a greater or
lesser number of shares of Common Stock, then in each such case the
amount set forth in the preceding sentence with respect to the exchange or
change of shares of Series E Preference Stock shall be adjusted by
multiplying such amount by a fraction, the numerator of which is the
number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately after such
event and the denominator of which is the number of shares of Common
Stock that were outstanding immediately prior to such event.

       8.    No Redemption.      The shares of Series E Preference Stock
shall not be redeemable.

       9.    Rank.  The Series E Preference Stock shall rank, with respect
to the payment of dividends and the distribution of assets, junior to all
series of any other class of Preferred Stock or Preference Stock.

       10.   Amendment.    If any proposed amendment to the Certificate
of Incorporation would alter or change the preferences, special rights or
powers given to the Series E Preference Stock so as to affect the Series E
Preference Stock adversely, or would authorize the issuance of a class or
classes of stock having preferences or rights with respect to dividends or
dissolutions or the distribution of assets that would be superior to the
preferences or rights of the Series E Preference Stock, then the holders of
the Series E Preference Stock shall be entitled to vote as a series upon such
amendment, and the affirmative vote of two-thirds of the outstanding shares
of Series E Preference Stock shall

                                       7


be necessary to the adoption thereof, in
addition to such other vote as may be required by the General Corporation
Law of the State of Delaware.

liquidation, and (ii) prior to any other equity securities of the Company
including all classes of the Common Stock, $1.00 par value per share
(collectively, the "Common Stock"), of the Company.  (All of such equity
securities of the Company to which the Series F Stock rank prior in right
of dividends or in liquidation, as the case may be, including all classes of

       5.     Dividends.

             (A)    From and after November 26, 1991 and prior to the
             date of conversion thereof, the holders of such stock shall be
             entitled to receive, out of the assets of the Company at the
             time legally available therefor and before any dividend or
             other distribution is declared or paid with respect to the
             outstanding shares of Common Stock, cumulative cash
             dividends, as and when declared by the Board of Directors of
             the Company, at the rate of $4.882 per share per annum.
             Such dividends shall be payable in arrears, in equal quarterly
             installments of $1.2205 per share on November 26, February
             26, May 26 and August 26, or on such other date in
             November, February, May or August of each year as or shall
             be designated by the Board of Directors of the Company
             (each such date is referred to herein as a "Dividend Payment
             Date" and the quarterly period between consecutive Dividend
             Payment Dates is referred to herein as a "Dividend Period");
             each such quarterly dividend shall be paid to

                                       8


             the holders of
             record of outstanding shares of Series F Stock as their names
             shall appear on the share register of the Company on the
             corresponding Record Date.  As used herein, the term
             "Record Date" means, with respect to the quarterly dividends
             payable on November 26, February 26, May 26 and August
             26, respectively, the preceding November 15, February 15,
             May 15 and August 15, or such other record date as may be
             designated by the Board of Directors of the Company in the
             event that the Board of Directors of the Company designates
             a Dividend Payment Date other than the 26th day of each
             such month.

             (B)  If, on any Dividend Payment Date which is prior to the
             date of conversion of shares of Series F Stock, full cash
             dividends pursuant to subclause (A) above are not paid or
             made available to the holders of outstanding shares of Series
             F Stock and the funds available to the Company for such
             purpose shall be insufficient to permit payment in full in cash
             to all such holders of outstanding shares of Series F Stock of
             the preferential dividend amounts to which they are then
             entitled pursuant to subclause (A) above, the entire amount
             available for payment of cash dividends with respect to the
             outstanding shares of Series F Stock pursuant to subclause
             (A) above shall be distributed among the holders of
             outstanding shares of Series F Stock ratably, in proportion to
             the full amounts to which they would otherwise be entitled,
             and any remainder not paid in cash to the holders of
             outstanding shares of Series F Stock shall cumulate as
             provided in subclause (C) below.

             (C)  If, on any Dividend Payment Date which is prior to the
             date of conversion of shares of Series F Stock, the holders of
             outstanding shares of Series F Stock shall not have received
             the full cash dividends to which they are entitled pursuant to
             sub-clause (A) above, then such unpaid dividends shall
             cumulate, whether or not declared, until so paid.

             (D)  In addition to the cumulative dividends payable with
             respect to outstanding shares of Series F Stock pursuant to
             subclauses (A), (B) and (C) above, from and after February
             26, 1992 and prior to the date (the "ESOP Payment Date")
             the trustee of the International Games, Inc. ("International")
             Restated Employee Stock Ownership Plan (the "ESOP")
             receives written notice of final payment by the ESOP of all
             amounts due to the Company pursuant to the Loan
             Agreement dated as of August 1, 1987, or a suitable
             replacement thereof, between International and the ESOP
             (the "ESOP Loan Agreement"), the holders of such shares
             shall be entitled to receive on any Dividend Payment Date in
             any year, out of the assets of the Company at the time legally
             available therefor and before any dividend or other
             distribution is declared or paid with respect to the
             outstanding shares of Common Stock, noncumulative cash
             dividends, as and when declared by the Board of Directors of
             the Company, and in such amounts as the Board of Directors of

                                       9


             the Company shall, in its sole discretion, from time to time
             determine to be necessary, together with the amount of the
             Company's annual contribution to the ESOP, to amortize all
             of the amounts due in such year to the holders of the
             International's FRESOP Notes, Series 1987 A, or suitable
             replacements thereof, issued pursuant to the Indenture of
             Trust, dated as of August 1, 1987, between the International,
             as issuer, and Bankers Trust Company, as trustee, in
             accordance with the terms thereof; provided, however, that in
             no event shall the outstanding shares of Series F Stock be
             entitled to receive noncumulative dividends pursuant to this
             subclause (D) in excess of $.5889 per share per annum.  Each
             such dividend shall be paid to the holders of record of
             outstanding shares of Series F Stock as their names shall
             appear on the share register of the Company on the
             corresponding Record Date.

             (E)  In addition to the cumulative dividends payable with
             respect to the outstanding shares of Series F Stock pursuant
             to subclauses (A), (B) and (C) above and the noncumulative
             dividends payable with respect to such shares pursuant to
             subclause (D) above, if, on any Dividend Payment Date which
             is prior to the date of conversion of shares of Series F Stock,
             after the payment of all dividends, if any, with respect to the
             outstanding shares of Series F Stock pursuant to subclauses
             (A), (B), (C) and (D) above, any dividend shall be declared
             by the Board of Directors of the Company with respect to the
             outstanding shares of Common Stock, the holders of
             outstanding shares of Series F Stock on the applicable Record
             Date for the dividend on the Common Stock shall be entitled
             to receive on the applicable Dividend Payment Date
             dividends in such amount as they would be entitled to receive
             if their shares of Series F Stock had been converted into
             shares of Common Stock on the applicable Record Date.

       6.    Distributions Upon Liquidation, Dissolution or Winding Up.

             (A)  In the event of any voluntary or involuntary liquidation,
             dissolution or winding up of the affairs of the Company which
             is prior to the ESOP Payment Date, after the payment in full
             of all preferential liquidation amounts to which the holders
             of outstanding shares of Preferred Stock or Preference Stock
             ranking senior to the Series F Stock shall be entitled, but
             before any distribution or payment shall be made to the
             holders of outstanding shares of Common Stock, the holders
             of outstanding shares of Series F Stock shall be entitled to
             receive, out of the assets of the Company at the time legally
             available therefor, an amount equal to the positive sum, if
             any, of (x) $39.056 per share, together with all dividends
             accrued (whether or not declared) during the dividend period
             in which such liquidation, dissolution or winding up occurs
             and all cumulated and unpaid dividends, if any, accrued
             during any prior dividend periods, less (y) the quotient
             obtained by dividing the principal amount of the indebtedness
             of the ESOP to the Company pursuant to the

                                       10


             ESOP Loan Agreement outstanding on the date of such voluntary or
             involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the
             affairs of the Company by 864,293.  If, upon any such
             voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding up
             of the affairs of the Company, the assets of the Company
             legally available therefor after the payment in full of all
             preferential liquidation amounts to which the holders of
             outstanding shares of Preferred Stock or Preference Stock
             ranking senior to the Series F Stock shall be entitled but
             before any distribution or payment shall be made to the
             holders of outstanding Junior Securities, shall be insufficient
             to permit the payment in full to the holders of outstanding
             shares of Series F Stock of the preferential liquidation
             amounts to which they are then entitled, the entire assets of
             the Company thus distributable shall be distributed among
             the holders of outstanding shares of Series F Stock ratably, in
             proportion to the full amounts to which such holders would
             otherwise be entitled if such assets were sufficient to permit
             payment in full. In addition, after the payment in full of all
             preferential liquidation amounts to which the holders of
             outstanding shares of Series F Stock shall be entitled, the
             holders of all outstanding shares of Common Stock, and the
             holders of outstanding shares of Series F Stock shall be
             entitled to receive the entire assets of the Company available
             for distribution, ratably with the holders of outstanding shares
             of Common Stock, in proportion to the ratio which the total
             number of shares of Common Stock into which the
             outstanding shares of Series F Stock would be convertible on
             the effective date of such voluntary or involuntary liquidation,
             dissolution or winding up of the affairs of the Company bears
             to the total number of shares of Common Stock deemed to
             be outstanding on such date (assuming for this purpose the
             conversion of all outstanding shares of Series F Stock on such
             effective date).  Each holder of outstanding shares of Series
             F Stock shall be entitled to receive that portion of the assets
             of the Company available for distribution which the number
             of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of such
             holder's shares of Series F Stock bears to the total number of
             shares of Common Stock deemed to be outstanding on the
             effective date of such voluntary or involuntary liquidation,
             dissolution or winding up of the affairs of the Company.

             (B)  In the event of any voluntary or involuntary liquidation,
             dissolution or winding up of the affairs of the Company which
             is after the ESOP Payment Date, after the payment in full of
             all preferential liquidation amounts to which the holders of
             outstanding shares of Preferred Stock or Preference Stock
             ranking senior to the Series F Stock shall be entitled, but
             before any distribution or payment to the holders of Junior
             Securities, the holders of outstanding shares of Series F Stock
             shall be entitled to receive out of the assets of the Company
             at the time legally available therefor, an amount equal to
             $39.056 per share, together with all dividends accrued
             (whether or not declared) during the dividend period in which
             such liquidation, dissolution or

                                       11


             winding up occurs and all
             cumulated and unpaid dividends, if any, accrued during any
             prior Dividend Periods. In addition, after the payment in full
             of all preferential liquidation amounts to which the holders
             of outstanding shares of Series F Stock shall be entitled, the
             holders of outstanding shares of Series F Stock shall be
             entitled to receive the entire assets of the Company available
             for distribution, ratably with the holders of outstanding shares
             of Common Stock, in proportion to the ratio which the total
             number of shares of Common Stock into which the
             outstanding shares of Series F Stock would be convertible on
             the effective date of such voluntary or involuntary liquidation,
             dissolution or winding up of the affairs of the Company bears
             to the total number of shares of Common Stock deemed to
             be outstanding on such date (assuming for this purpose the
             conversion of all outstanding shares of Series F Stock on such
             effective date).  Each holder of outstanding shares of Series
             F Stock shall be entitled to receive that portion of the assets
             of the Company available for distribution which the number
             of shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of such
             holder's shares of Series F Stock bears to the total number of
             shares of Common Stock deemed to be outstanding on the
             effective date of such voluntary or involuntary liquidation,
             dissolution or winding up of the affairs of the Company as set
             forth above.

       7.    Redemption.  The shares of Series F Stock shall not be
redeemable by the Company.

       8.    Conversion.

             (A)  From and after the Date of Issuance of shares of Series
             F Stock and prior to the expiration of thirty days following
             the ESOP Payment Date, each share of Series F Stock shall
             be convertible, at the option of the holder thereof, into one
             fully-paid and nonassessable share of Common Stock of the
             Company, subject to adjustment as hereinafter set forth in
             subclause (E) below.

             (B)  From and after the thirty-first day following the ESOP
             Payment Date, each share of Series F Stock shall be
             convertible, at the option of the holder thereof, into .3644353
             of a fully-paid and nonassessable share of Common Stock of
             the Company, subject to adjustment as hereinafter set forth
             in subclause (E) below.

             (C)  To exercise such conversion option, the holder of shares
             of Series F Stock shall surrender the certificate or certificates
             representing the shares of Series F Stock to be converted,
             duly endorsed for transfer to the Company, at the principal
             executive office of the Company, and shall give written notice,
             postage prepaid, by certified or registered mail, return receipt
             requested, or by hand delivery to the Company at its principal
             executive office, of the

                                       12


             election of such holder to convert all
             or a portion of the shares of Series F Stock represented by
             the certificate or certificates surrendered into shares of
             Common Stock which notice shall set forth the name or
             names in which the certificate or certificates representing the
             shares of Common Stock to be issued upon conversion are to
             be issued.  Conversion shall be deemed to have been effected
             on the date of receipt by the Company of such notice and the
             certificate or certificates to be surrendered for conversion
             (the "Conversion Date").  As promptly as practicable
             thereafter, the Company shall issue to or upon the written
             order of such holder, a certificate or certificates for the
             number of full shares of Common Stock to which such holder
             is entitled.  The conversion of shares of Series F Stock into
             shares of Common Stock shall be deemed to be effective and
             such holder, or the person or persons designated by such
             holder, shall be deemed to have become a holder of record
             of the shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of
             such shares of Series F Stock on the applicable Conversion
             Date unless the transfer books of the Company are closed on
             such date, in which event such holder shall be deemed to
             have become a holder of record of the shares of Common
             Stock issued upon conversion of the shares of Series F Stock
             on the next succeeding date on which the transfer books of
             the Company are open.  Upon conversion of only a portion
             of the number of shares of Series F Stock represented by a
             certificate or certificates surrendered for conversion, the
             Company shall issue and deliver to or upon the written order
             of the holder of the certificate or certificates so surrendered
             a new certificate or certificates representing the number of
             shares of Series F Stock not so converted.

             (D)  No fractional shares of Common Stock shall be issued
             upon conversion of shares of Series F Stock.  In lieu of
             issuing fractional shares of Common Stock upon conversion
             of shares of Series F Stock, the Company shall pay a cash
             adjustment in respect of such fractional shares of Common
             Stock equal to the fair market value thereof as determined by
             the Board of Directors of the Company.  The Company shall
             at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized
             but unissued shares of Common Stock, solely for the purpose
             of effecting the conversion of outstanding shares of Series F
             Stock, the full number of shares of Common Stock
             deliverable upon the conversion of all shares of Series F
             Stock from time to time outstanding.

             (E)  The number of shares of Common Stock into which a
             share of Series F Stock shall be convertible as set forth in
             subclauses (A) and (B) above, shall be subject to adjustment
             from time to time as follows:

                    (i)  In case the Company shall at any time subdivide
                    its outstanding shares of Common Stock or shall issue
                    a dividend or other distribution payable in shares of
                    Common Stock, the number of shares of Common
                    Stock into which a share of Series F Stock shall be
                    convertible shall be

                                       13


                    proportionately increased,
                    effective immediately after the effective date of such
                    subdivision or at the close of business on the record
                    date fixed by the Board of Directors of the Company
                    for such dividend or other distribution, as the case
                    may be;

                    (ii)  In case the Company shall at any time combine
                    its outstanding shares of Common Stock, the number
                    of shares of Common Stock into which a share of
                    Series F Stock shall be convertible shall be
                    proportionately decreased, effective immediately after
                    the effective date of such combination; and

                    (iii)  In case the Company shall at any time
                    recapitalize or reclassify its capital stock, or in case of
                    any consolidation or merger of the Company with or
                    into any other person (other than a consolidation or
                    merger in which the Company is the continuing entity
                    and which does not result in any change in the capital
                    stock of the Company) or in case of the sale or other
                    disposition of all or substantially all the assets of the
                    Company to any other person, then in each such case
                    each outstanding share of Series F Stock shall after
                    such recapitalization, reclassification, consolidation,
                    merger, sale or other disposition be convertible into
                    the kind and number of shares of capital stock or
                    other securities or assets of the Company or of the
                    entity resulting from such consolidation or surviving
                    such merger or to which such assets shall have been
                    sold or otherwise disposed of to which the holder
                    thereof would have been entitled if immediately prior
                    to such recapitalization, reclassification, consolidation,
                    merger, sale or other disposition such holder had
                    converted its shares of Series F Stock.  The provisions
                    set forth above shall apply to successive
                    recapitalization, reclassifications, consolidations,
                    mergers, sales or other dispositions.

             (F)  All shares of Common Stock issued upon conversion of
             shares of Series F Stock shall, upon issuance by the Company,
             be duly and validly issued, fully-paid and nonassessable and
             free from all taxes, liens and charges with respect to the
             issuance thereof.

       9.    Voting Rights.  The holders of shares of Series F Stock shall
be entitled to vote on or otherwise consent to any matter requiring the vote
or consent of the stockholders of the Company under the laws of the State
of Delaware.  Each holder of outstanding shares of Series F Stock shall be
entitled to one vote for each whole share of Common Stock into which such
holder's outstanding shares of Series F Stock would be convertible
immediately after the close of business on the record date fixed by the
Board of Directors of the Company for determining the stockholders of the
Company entitled to vote or otherwise consent to such matter; provided,
however, that in the event (x) the Company shall fail to pay cumulative
dividends in full on the outstanding shares of Series F Stock for a period of

                                       14


four consecutive Dividend Periods, or (y) the Company shall fail to pay
cumulative dividends in full on the outstanding shares of Series F Stock for
a period of eight Dividend Periods, in either case after the expiration of
thirty days following the ESOP Payment Date, each holder of outstanding
shares of Series F Stock shall be entitled to the number of votes equal to
the number of whole shares of Common Stock which such holder would
have been entitled to receive if the shares of Series F Stock held by such
holder had been converted into shares of Common Stock prior to the
expiration of thirty days following the ESOP Payment Date until such time
as all cumulative dividends in arrears with respect to the shares of Series F
Stock shall have been paid in full.  Except as otherwise required by the laws
of the State of Delaware, the holders of outstanding shares of Series F
Stock shall vote together with the holders of outstanding shares of Common
Stock as a single class.

       FIFTH:       At all elections of Directors of the Company, each
stockholder who is entitled to vote upon such election shall be entitled to
as many votes as shall be equal to the number of votes which (except for
this provision as to cumulative voting) he would be entitled to cast for the
election of Directors with respect to his shares of stock multiplied by the
number of Directors to be elected, and he may cast all of such votes for a
single Director or may distribute them among the number to be voted for
or for any two or more of them, as he sees fit.

       SIXTH:       In furtherance and not in limitation of the powers
conferred by statute, the Board of Directors is expressly authorized to make,
alter or repeal the Bylaws of the Company.

       SEVENTH:     The Company shall indemnify any and all persons
whom it has the power to indemnify pursuant to the Delaware General
Corporation Law against any and all expenses, judgments, fines amounts
paid in settlement, and any other liabilities to the fullest extent permitted
by such Law and may, at the discretion of the Board of Directors, purchase
and maintain insurance, at its expense, to protect itself and such persons
against any such expense, judgment, fine, amount paid in settlement or
other liability, whether or not the Company would have the power to so
indemnify such person under the Delaware General Corporation Law.

       A director of the Company shall not be personally liable to the
Company or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary
duty as a director, except for liability (i) for any breach of the director's
duty of loyalty to the Company or its stockholders, (ii) for acts or omissions
not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing
violation of law, (iii) under Section 174 of the Delaware General
Corporation Law, or (iv) for any transaction from which the director
derived any improper personal benefit.  If the Delaware General
Corporation Law is  amended after approval by the stockholders of this
article to authorize corporate action further eliminating or limiting the
personal liability of directors, then the liability of a director of the Company
shall be eliminated or limited to the fullest extent permitted by the
Delaware General Corporation Law, as so amended.

                                       15


       Any repeal or modification of the foregoing paragraph by the
stockholders of the Company shall not adversely affect any right or
protection of a director of the Company existing at the time of such repeal
or modification.

       IN WITNESS WHEREOF, this Restated Certificate of
Incorporation, which only restates and integrates and does not further
amend the provisions of the Certificate of Incorporation of the Company as
heretofore amended, supplemented or restated and there being no
discrepancies between those provisions and the provisions of this Restated
Certificate of Incorporation and it having been duly adopted in accordance
with Section 245 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware
by the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors, which Committee

Ladies and Gentlemen:

             Mattel, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the "Company"),
proposes to issue and sell to the several Underwriters named in Schedule I
hereto (the "Underwriters") $100,000,000 principal amount of its 6 3/4%
Notes due May 15, 2000 (the "Securities") to be issued pursuant to the
provisions of an Indenture dated as of May 15, 1993 (the "Indenture")
between the Company and PNC Bank, National Association, as Trustee
(the "Trustee").

             The Company has filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission (the "Commission") a registration statement, including a
prospectus, relating to the Securities.  The registration statement as
amended at the time it becomes effective, including the information (if
any) deemed to be part of the registration statement at the time of
effectiveness pursuant to Rule 430A under the Securities Act of 1933, as
amended (the "Securities Act"), is hereinafter referred to as the
Registration Statement; the prospectus in the form first used to confirm
sales of Securities is hereinafter referred to as the Prospectus.  Any
reference herein to the Registration Statement or the Prospectus shall be
deemed to refer to and include the documents incorporated by reference
therein, and any reference herein to the terms "amend," "amendment" or
"supplement" with respect to the Registration Statement or the Prospectus
shall be deemed to refer to and include the filing after the execution
hereof of any document with the Commission deemed to be incorporated
by reference therein.


                                   I.

             The Company represents and warrants to each of the
Underwriters that:

             (a)    The Registration Statement has become effective; no
       stop order suspending the effectiveness of the Registration
       Statement is in effect, and no proceedings for such purpose are
       pending before or threatened to the Company by the Commission.

             (b)    (i) Each document, if any, filed or to be filed pursuant
       to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange
       Act"), and incorporated by

                                       2


       reference in the Prospectus complied or
       will comply when so filed in all material respects with the Exchange
       Act and the applicable rules and regulations of the Commission
       thereunder, (ii) Each part of the Registration Statement, when such
       part became effective, did not contain and each such part, as
       amended or supplemented, if applicable, will not contain any untrue
       statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact required
       to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not
       misleading, (iii) the Registration Statement and the Prospectus
       comply and, as amended or supplemented, if applicable, will comply
       in all material respects with the Securities Act and the applicable
       rules and regulations of the Commission thereunder and (iv) the
       Prospectus does not contain and, as amended or supplemented, if
       applicable, will not contain any untrue statement of a material fact
       or omit to state a material fact necessary to make the statements
       therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were
       made, not misleading, except that the representations and warranties
       set forth in this paragraph I(b) do not apply (A) to statements or
       omissions in the Registration Statement or the Prospectus based
       upon information relating to any Underwriter furnished to the Com-
       pany in writing by such Underwriter through you expressly for use
       therein or (B) to that part of the Registration Statement that
       constitutes the Statement of Eligibility and Qualification (Form T-1)
       under the Trust Indenture Act of 1939, as amended (the "Trust
       Indenture Act"), of the Trustee.

             (c)    The financial statements of the Company and its
       subsidiaries set forth in the Registration Statement and Prospectus
       fairly present the financial condition of the Company and its
       subsidiaries as of the dates indicated and the results of operations
       and changes in financial position for the periods therein specified in
       conformity with generally accepted accounting principles consistently
       applied throughout the periods involved (except as otherwise stated
       therein).

             (d)    The Company has been duly incorporated, is validly
       existing as a corporation in good standing under the laws of the
       jurisdiction of its incorporation, has the corporate power and
       authority to own its property and to conduct its business as
       described in the Prospectus and is duly qualified to transact business
       and is in good standing in each jurisdiction in which the conduct of
       its business or its ownership or leasing of property requires such
       qualification, except to the extent that the failure to be so qualified
       or be in good standing would not have a material adverse effect on
       the Company and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole.

             (e)    Each subsidiary of the Company has been duly
       incorporated, is validly existing as a corporation in good standing
       under the laws of the jurisdiction of its incorporation, has the cor-
       porate power and authority to own its property and to conduct its
       business as described in the Prospectus except to the extent that the
       failure of any such subsidiary, singly or in the aggregate, to be so
       duly incorporated or validly existing or to have such corporate
       power and authority, would not have a material adverse effect on
       the Company and its subsidiaries taken as a whole or on the
       business of the Company and its subsidiaries in any individual
       country as described in the Prospectus.  Each subsidiary of the
       Company is duly qualified to transact business and is in good
       standing in each jurisdiction in which the conduct of

                                       3


       its business or
       its ownership or leasing of property requires such qualification,
       except to the extent that the failure of any such subsidiary, singly or
       in the aggregate, to be so qualified or be in good standing would not
       have a material adverse effect on the Company and its subsidiaries
       taken as a whole or on the business of the Company and its
       subsidiaries in any individual country as described in the Prospectus.

             (f)    This Agreement has been duly authorized, executed
       and delivered by the Company.

             (g)    The Indenture has been duly qualified under the Trust
       Indenture Act and has been duly authorized, executed and delivered
       by the Company and is a valid and binding agreement of the Com-
       pany, enforceable in accordance with its terms except as (i) the
       enforceability thereof may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency or
       similar laws affecting creditors' rights generally and (ii) rights of
       acceleration and the availability of equitable remedies may be
       limited by equitable principles of general applicability.

             (h)    The Securities have been duly authorized and, when
       executed and authenticated in accordance with the provisions of the
       Indenture and delivered to and paid for by the Underwriters in
       accordance with the terms of this Agreement, will be entitled to the
       benefits of the Indenture, and will be valid and binding obligations
       of the Company, enforceable in accordance with their terms except
       as (i) the enforceability thereof may be limited by bankruptcy,
       insolvency or similar laws affecting creditors' rights generally and (ii)
       rights of acceleration and the availability of equitable remedies may
       be limited by equitable principles of general applicability.

             (i)    The execution and delivery by the Company of, and
       the performance by the Company of its obligations under, this
       Agreement, the Indenture and the Securities will not contravene any
       provision of applicable law or the certificate of incorporation or
       by-laws of the Company or any agreement or other instrument
       binding upon the Company or any of its subsidiaries that is material
       to the Company and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole, or any
       judgment, order or decree of any governmental body, agency or
       court having jurisdiction over the Company or any subsidiary, and
       no consent, approval, authorization or order of, or qualification with,
       any governmental body or agency is required for the performance by
       the Company of its obligations under this Agreement, the Indenture
       or the Securities, except such as may be required by the securities or
       Blue Sky laws of the various states in connection with the offer and
       sale of the Securities.

             (j)    There has not occurred any material adverse change,
       or any development involving a prospective material adverse change,
       in the condition, financial or otherwise, or in the earnings, business
       or operations of the Company and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole,
       from that set forth in the Prospectus.

             (k)    There are no legal or governmental proceedings
       pending or threatened to the Company to which the Company or
       any of its subsidiaries is a party or to

                                       4


       which any of the properties of
       the Company or any of its subsidiaries is subject that are required to
       be described in the Registration Statement, the Prospectus or any
       documents incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement
       or the Prospectus that are not so described or any statutes,
       regulations, contracts or other documents that are required to be
       described in the Registration Statement, the Prospectus or any
       documents incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement
       or the Prospectus or to be filed as exhibits to the Registration
       Statement that are not so described or filed as required.

             (l)    Each preliminary prospectus filed as part of the
       registration statement as originally filed or as part of any
       amendment thereto, or filed pursuant to Rule 424 under the
       Securities Act, complied when so filed in all material respects with
       the Securities Act and the rules and regulations of the Commission
       thereunder.

             (m)    The Company and its subsidiaries own or possess the
       patents, patent rights, licenses, inventions, copyrights, know-how
       (including trade secrets and other unpatented and/or unpatentable
       proprietary or confidential information, systems or procedures),
       trademarks, service marks and trade names presently employed by
       them in connection with the business now operated by them, and
       neither the Company nor any of its subsidiaries has received any
       notice of infringement of or conflict with asserted rights of others
       with respect to any of the foregoing which, singly or in the
       aggregate, if the subject of an unfavorable decision, ruling or
       finding, would result in any material adverse change, or any notice
       of any other development with respect to the foregoing involving a
       prospective material adverse change, in the condition, financial or
       otherwise, or in the earnings, business affairs or business prospects
       of the Company and its subsidiaries considered as one enterprise,
       except as may be described in writing to, and accepted for exclusion
       by, the Underwriters.

             (n)    The Company is not an "investment company" or an
       entity "controlled" by an "investment company," as such terms are
       defined in the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended.

             (o)    The Company and its subsidiaries are (i) in
       compliance with any and all applicable foreign, federal, state and
       local laws and regulations relating to the protection of human health
       and safety, the environment or hazardous or toxic substances or
       wastes, pollutants or contaminants ("Environmental Laws"), (ii) have
       received all permits, licenses or other approvals required of them
       under applicable Environmental Laws to conduct their respective
       businesses and (iii) are in compliance with all terms and conditions
       of any such permit, license or approval, except where such
       noncompliance with Environmental Laws, failure to receive required
       permits, licenses or other approvals or failure to comply with the
       terms and conditions of such permits, licenses or approvals would
       not, singly or in the aggregate, have a material adverse effect on the
       Company and its subsidiaries, taken as a whole.

             (p)    In the ordinary course of its business, the Company
       conducts a periodic review of the effect of Environmental Laws on
       the business, operations and properties

                                       5


       of the Company and its
       subsidiaries, in the course of which it identifies and evaluates
       associated costs and liabilities (including, without limitation, any
       capital or operating expenditures required for clean-up, closure of
       properties or compliance with Environmental Laws or any permit,
       license or approval, any related constraints on operating activities
       and any potential liabilities to third parties).  On the basis of such
       review, the Company has reasonably concluded that such associated
       costs and liabilities would not, singly or in the aggregate, have a
       material adverse effect on the Company and its subsidiaries, taken
       as a whole.

             (q)    Neither the Company nor any of its subsidiaries has,
       directly or indirectly, paid or delivered any fee, commission or other
       sum of money or item or property, however characterized, to any
       finder, agent, government official or other party, in the United
       States or any other country, which is in any manner related to the
       business, assets or operations of Company or any of its subsidiaries,
       which is, or may be with the passage of time or discovery, illegal
       under any federal, state or local laws of the United States (including
       without limitation the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices' Act) or any
       other country having jurisdiction; and neither the Company nor any
       of its subsidiaries has participated, directly or indirectly, in any
       boycotts or other similar practices affecting any of its actual or
       potential customers and has at all times done business in an open
       and ethical manner.

             (r)    The Company has complied with all provisions of
       Section 517.075, Florida Statutes relating to doing business with the
       Government of Cuba or with any person or any affiliate located in
       Cuba.


                                   II.

             The Company hereby agrees to sell to the several
Underwriters, and the Underwriters, upon the basis of the representations
and warranties herein contained, but subject to the conditions hereinafter
stated, agree, severally and not jointly, to purchase from the Company the
respective principal amounts of Securities set forth in Schedule I hereto
opposite their names at 99.35% of their principal amount -- the purchase
price -- plus accrued interest, if any, from May 15, 1993 to the date of
payment and delivery.


                                   III

             The Company is advised by you that the Underwriters
propose to make a public offering of their respective portions of the
Securities as soon after the Registration Statement and this Agreement
have become effective as in your judgment is advisable.  The Company is
further advised by you that the Securities are to be offered to the public
initially at 100% of their principal amount -- the public offering price --
plus accrued interest, if any, and to certain dealers selected by you at a
price that represents a concession not in excess of .40% of their principal
amount under the public offering price, and that any Underwriter

                                       6


may allow, and such dealer may reallow, a concession, not in excess of .25% of
their principal amount, to any Underwriter or to certain other dealers.


                                   IV.

             Payment for the Securities shall be made by certified or
official bank check or checks payable to the order of the Company in New
York Clearing House funds at the office of Latham & Watkins, 633 W.
Fifth Street, Los Angeles, California at 7:00 A.M., local time, on May 26,
1993 or at such other time on the same or such other date, not later than
June 3, 1993, as shall be designated in writing by you.  The time and date
of such payment are hereinafter referred to as the Closing Date.

             Payment for the Securities shall be made against delivery to
you for the respective accounts of the several Underwriters of the
Securities registered in such names and in such denominations as you shall
request in writing not later than two full business days prior to the date of
delivery, with any transfer taxes payable in connection with the transfer of
the Securities to the Underwriters duly paid.


                                   V.

             The obligations of the Company and the several obligations
of the Underwriters hereunder are subject to the condition that the
Registration Statement shall have become effective not later than the date
hereof.

             The several obligations of the Underwriters hereunder are
subject to the following further conditions:

             (a)    Subsequent to the execution and delivery of this
       Agreement and prior to the Closing Date,

                    (i)   there shall not have occurred any downgrading,
             nor shall any notice have been given of any intended or
             potential downgrading or of any review for a possible change
             that does not indicate the direction of the possible change, in
             the rating accorded any of the Company's securities by any
             "nationally recognized statistical rating organization," as such
             term is defined for purposes of Rule 436(g)(2) under the
             Securities Act;

                    (ii)  there shall not have occurred any change, or
             any development involving a prospective change, in the
             condition, financial or otherwise, or in the earnings, business
             or operations, of the Company and its subsidiaries, taken as a
             whole, from that set forth in the Registration Statement, that,

             Commission for additional information (to be included in the
             Registration Statement or the Prospectus or otherwise) shall
             have been complied with to your satisfaction.

             Statement or the Prospectus that are not so described and
             there are no statutes, regulations, contracts or other
             documents that are required to be described in the
             Registration Statement, the Prospectus or any documents

             for that purpose has been instituted or threatened by the
             Commission;

                    (xi)  such counsel (1) is of the opinion that each
             document filed pursuant to the Exchange Act and
             incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement and
             the Prospectus (except for financial statements and schedules
             as to which such counsel need not express any opinion)
             complied when so filed as to form in all material respects
             with the Exchange Act and the applicable rules and
             regulations of the Commission thereunder and (2) is of the
             opinion that the Registration Statement and the Prospectus

             opinion) comply as to form in all material respects with the

             counsel that would lead such counsel to believe that (1)
             (except for financial statements and schedules as to which
             such counsel need not express any belief and except for that
             part of the Registration Statement that constitutes the Form
             T-1 heretofore referred to) the Registration Statement and

             Statement (and the documents incorporated by reference in
             the Registration Statement and such prospectus) became
             effective contained an untrue statement of a material fact or
             omitted to state a material fact required to be stated therein
             or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading
             and (2) (except for financial statements and schedules as to
             which such counsel need not express any belief) the
             Prospectus and the documents incorporated by reference
             therein as of the Closing Date contain an untrue statement of
             a material fact or omit to state a material fact necessary in

                                       10

             the failure to be so qualified or be in good standing would
             not have a material adverse effect on the Company and its
             subsidiaries taken as a whole;

             good standing in each jurisdiction in which the conduct of its
             business or its ownership or leasing of property requires such

             qualified or be in good standing would not have a material
             adverse effect on such subsidiary;

       which you shall reasonably object by notice to the Company after
       having been furnished a copy a reasonable time prior to the filing;
       and it will furnish to you at or prior to the filing thereof a copy of
       any document that upon filing is deemed to be incorporated by
       reference in the Registration Statement or Prospectus.

             (b)    To furnish to you, without charge, three signed copies
       of the Registration Statement (including exhibits thereto and all
       documents incorporated by reference therein) and for delivery to
       each other Underwriter a conformed copy of the Registration
       Statement (without exhibits thereto but including all documents
       incorporated by reference therein) and, during the period mentioned
       in paragraph (c) below, as many copies of the Prospectus, any
       documents incorporated by reference therein and any supplements
       and amendments thereto or to the Registration Statement as you
       may reasonably request.

             (c)    The Company will advise you, promptly after it shall
       receive notice or obtain knowledge thereof, of the issuance by the
       Commission of any stop order suspending the effectiveness of the
       Registration Statement, of the suspension of the qualification of the
       Securities for offering or sale in any jurisdiction, or of the initiation
       or threatening of any proceeding for any such purpose; and it will
       promptly use its best efforts to prevent the issuance of any stop
       order or to obtain its withdrawal if such a stop order should be
       issued.

             (d)    If, during such period after the first date of the public
       offering of the Securities as in the opinion of your counsel the
       Prospectus is required by law to be delivered in connection with
       sales by an Underwriter or dealer, any event shall occur or condition
       exist as a result of which it is necessary to amend or supplement the
       Prospectus so that it does not contain any untrue statement of a
       material fact or omit to state a material fact required to be stated
       therein or necessary to make the statements therein, in the light of
       the circumstances when the Prospectus is delivered to a purchaser,
       not misleading, or if, in the opinion of your counsel, it is necessary
       to amend or supplement the Prospectus to comply with law,
       forthwith to prepare, file with the Commission and furnish, at its
       own expense, to the Underwriters and to the dealers (whose names
       and addresses you will furnish to the Company) to which Securities
       may have been sold by you on behalf of the Underwriters and to
       any other dealers upon request, either amendments or supplements
       to the Prospectus so that the statements in the Prospectus as so
       amended or supplemented will not, in the light of

                                       14


       the circumstances
       when the Prospectus is delivered to a purchaser, be misleading or so
       that the Prospectus, as amended or supplemented, will comply with
       law.

             (e)    To endeavor to qualify the Securities for offer and sale
       under the securities or Blue Sky laws of such jurisdictions as you
       shall reasonably request and to pay all expenses (including fees and
       disbursements of counsel) in connection with such qualification and
       in connection with the determination of the eligibility of the
       Securities for investment under the laws of such jurisdictions as you
       may designate.

             (f)    During the period beginning on the date hereof and
       continuing to and including the Closing Date, not to offer, sell,
       contract to sell or otherwise dispose of any debt securities of the
       Company or warrants to purchase debt securities of the Company
       substantially similar to the Securities (other than (i) the Securities
       and (ii) commercial paper issued in the ordinary course of business),
       without your prior written consent.

             (g)    To make generally available to the Company's security
       holders and to you as soon as practicable an earning statement
       covering the twelve-month period ending June 30, 1994 that satisfies
       the provisions of Section 11(a) of the Securities Act and the rules
       and regulations of the Commission thereunder.

             (h)    To pay all document production charges and expenses
       of Latham & Watkins, special counsel for the Underwriters (but not
       including their fees for professional services), in connection with the
       preparation of this Agreement.


                                  VII.

             The Company agrees to indemnify and hold harmless each
Underwriter and each person, if any, who controls such Underwriter within
the meaning of either Section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20 of the
Exchange Act, from and against any and all losses, claims, damages and
liabilities (including, without limitation, any legal or other expenses
reasonably incurred by any Underwriter or any such controlling person in
connection with defending or investigating any such action or claim) caused
by any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact
contained in the Registration Statement or any amendment thereof, any
preliminary prospectus or the Prospectus (as amended or supplemented if
the Company shall have furnished any amendments or supplements
thereto), or caused by any omission or alleged omission to state therein a
material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the
statements therein not misleading, except insofar as such losses, claims,
damages or liabilities are caused by any such untrue statement or omission
or alleged untrue statement or omission based upon information relating to
any Underwriter furnished to the Company in writing by such Underwriter
through you expressly for use therein.

             Each Underwriter agrees, severally and not jointly, to
indemnify and hold harmless the Company, its directors, its officers who
sign the Registration Statement and

                                       15


each person, if any, who controls the
Company within the meaning either Section 15 of the Securities Act or
Section 20 of the Exchange Act to the same extent as the foregoing
indemnity from the Company to such Underwriter, but only with reference
to information relating to such Underwriter furnished to the Company in
writing by such Underwriter through you expressly for use in the
Registration Statement, any preliminary prospectus, the Prospectus or any
amendments or supplements thereto.

             In case any proceeding (including any governmental
investigation) shall be instituted involving any person in respect of which
indemnity may be sought pursuant to either of the two preceding
paragraphs, such person (the "indemnified party") shall promptly notify the
person against whom such indemnity may be sought (the "indemnifying
party") in writing and the indemnifying party, upon request of the
indemnified party, shall retain counsel reasonably satisfactory to the
indemnified party to represent the indemnified party and any others the
indemnifying party may designate in such proceeding and shall pay the fees
and disbursements of such counsel related to such proceeding.  In any such
proceeding, any indemnified party shall have the right to retain its own
counsel, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense
of such indemnified party unless (i) the indemnifying party and the
indemnified party shall have mutually agreed to the retention of such
counsel or (ii) the named parties to any such proceeding (including any
impleaded parties) include both the indemnifying party and the
indemnified party and representation of both parties by the same counsel
would be inappropriate due to actual or potential differing interests
between them.  It is understood that the indemnifying party shall not, in
respect of the legal expenses of any indemnified party in connection with
any proceeding or related proceedings in the same jurisdiction, be liable
for the fees and expenses of more than one separate firm (in addition to
any local counsel) for all such indemnified parties and that all such fees
and expenses shall be reimbursed as they are incurred.  Such firm shall be
designated in writing by Morgan Stanley & Co. Incorporated, in the case of
parties indemnified pursuant to the second preceding paragraph, and by
the Company, in the case of parties indemnified pursuant to the first
preceding paragraph.  The indemnifying party shall not be liable for any
settlement of any proceeding effected without its written consent, but if
settled with such consent or if there be a final judgment for the plaintiff,
the indemnifying party agrees to indemnify the indemnified party from and
against any loss or liability by reason of such settlement or judgment.
Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, if at any time an indemnified party
shall have requested an indemnifying party to reimburse the indemnified
party for fees and expenses of counsel as contemplated by the second and
third sentences of this paragraph, the indemnifying party agrees that it shall
be liable for any settlement of any proceeding effected without its written
consent if (i) such settlement is entered into more than 30 days after
receipt by such indemnifying party of the aforesaid request and (ii) such
indemnifying party shall not have reimbursed the indemnified party in
accordance with such request prior to the date of such settlement.  No
indemnifying party shall, without the prior written consent of the
indemnified party (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld),
effect any settlement of any pending or threatened proceeding in respect of
which any indemnified party is or could have been a party and indemnity
could have been sought hereunder by such indemnified party, unless such
settlement includes an unconditional release of such indemnified party
from all liability on claims that are the subject matter of such proceeding.

                                       16


             If the indemnification provided for in the first or second
paragraph of this Article VII is unavailable to an indemnified party or
insufficient in respect of any losses, claims, damages or liabilities referred
to therein, then each indemnifying party under such paragraph, in lieu of
indemnifying such indemnified party thereunder, shall contribute to the
amount paid or payable by such indemnified party as a result of such
losses, claims, damages or liabilities (i) in such proportion as is appropriate
to reflect the relative benefits received by the Company on the one hand
and the Underwriters on the other hand from the offering of the Securities
or (ii) if the allocation provided by clause (i) above is not permitted by
applicable law, in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect not only the
relative benefits referred to in clause (i) above but also the relative fault of
the Company on the one hand and of the Underwriters on the other hand
in connection with the statements or omissions that resulted in such losses,
claims, damages or liabilities, as well as any other relevant equitable
considerations.  The relative benefits received by the Company on the one
hand and the Underwriters on the other hand in connection with the
offering of the Securities shall be deemed to be in the same respective
proportions as the net proceeds from the offering of the Securities (before
deducting expenses) received by the Company and the total underwriting
discounts and commissions received by the Underwriters, in each case as
set forth in the table on the cover of the Prospectus, bear to the aggregate
public offering price of the Securities.  The relative fault of the Company
on the one hand and of the Underwriters on the other hand shall be
determined by reference to, among other things, whether the untrue or
alleged untrue statement of a material fact or the omission or alleged
omission to state a material fact relates to information supplied by the
Company or by the Underwriters and the parties' relative intent,
knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent
such statement or omission.  The Underwriters' respective obligations to
contribute pursuant to this Article VII are several in proportion to the
respective principal amounts of Securities they have purchased hereunder,
and not joint.

             The Company and the Underwriters agree that it would not
be just or equitable if contribution pursuant to this Article VII were
determined by pro rata allocation (even if the Underwriters were treated as
one entity for such purpose) or by any other method of allocation that does
not take account of the equitable considerations referred to in the
immediately preceding paragraph.  The amount paid or payable by an
indemnified party as a result of the losses, claims, damages and liabilities
referred to in the immediately preceding paragraph shall be deemed to
include, subject to the limitations set forth above, any legal or other
expenses reasonably incurred by such indemnified party in connection with
investigating or defending any such action or claim.  Notwithstanding the
provisions of this Article VII, no Underwriter shall be required to
contribute any amount in excess of the amount by which the total price at
which the Securities underwritten by it and distributed to the public were
offered to the public exceeds the amount of any damages that such
Underwriter has otherwise been required to pay by reason of such untrue
or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission.  No person
guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f)
of the Securities Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any person who
was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation.  The remedies
provided for in this Article VII are not exclusive and shall not limit any
rights or remedies which may otherwise be available to any indemnified
party at law or in equity.

                                       17


             The indemnity and contribution provisions contained in this
Article VII and the representations and warranties of the Company
contained in this Agreement shall remain operative and in full force and
effect regardless of (i) any termination of this Agreement, (ii) any
investigation made by or on behalf of any Underwriter or any person
controlling any Underwriter or by or on behalf of the Company, its officers
or directors or any person controlling the Company and (iii) acceptance of
and payment for any of the Securities.


                                  VIII.

             This Agreement shall be subject to termination by notice
given by you to the Company, if (a) after the execution and delivery of this
Agreement and prior to the Closing Date (i) trading generally shall have
been suspended or materially limited on or by, as the case may be, any of
the New York Stock Exchange, the American Stock Exchange, the National
Association of Securities Dealers, Inc., the Chicago Board of Options
Exchange, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange or the Chicago Board of
Trade, (ii) trading of any securities of the Company shall have been
suspended on any exchange or in any over-the-counter market, (iii) a
general moratorium on commercial banking activities in New York shall
have been declared by either Federal or New York State authorities or (iv)
there shall have occurred any outbreak or escalation of hostilities or any
change in financial markets or any calamity or crisis that, in your judgment,
is material and adverse and (b) in the case of any of the events specified in
clauses (a)(i) through (iv), such event singly or together with any other
such event makes it, in your judgment, impracticable to market the
Securities on the terms and in the manner contemplated in the Prospectus.


                                   IX.

             This Agreement shall become effective upon the later of (x)
execution and delivery hereof by the parties hereto and (y) release of
notification of the effectiveness of the Registration Statement by the
Commission.

             If, on the Closing Date, any one or more of the Underwriters
shall fail or refuse to purchase Securities that it or they have agreed to
purchase hereunder on such date, and the aggregate principal amount of
Securities which such defaulting Underwriter or Underwriters agreed but
failed or refused to purchase is not more than one-tenth of the aggregate
principal amount of the Securities to be purchased on such date, the other
Underwriters shall be obligated severally in the proportions that the
principal amount of Securities set forth opposite their respective names in
Schedule I bears to the principal amount of Securities set forth opposite
the names of all such non-defaulting Underwriters, or in such other
proportions as you may specify, to purchase the Securities which such
defaulting Underwriter or Underwriters agreed but failed or refused to
purchase on such date; provided that in no event shall the principal amount
of Securities that any Underwriter has agreed to purchase pursuant to
Article II be increased pursuant to this Article IX by an amount in excess
of one-ninth of such principal amount of Securities without the written
consent of such Underwriter.  If, on the Closing Date, any Underwriter or
Underwriters

                                       18


shall fail or refuse to purchase Securities and the aggregate
principal amount of Securities with respect to which such default occurs is
more than one-tenth of the aggregate principal amount of Securities to be
purchased on such date, and arrangements satisfactory to you and the
Company for the purchase of such Securities are not made within 36 hours
after such default, this Agreement shall terminate without liability on the
part of any non-defaulting Underwriter or the Company.  In any such case
either you or the Company shall have the right to postpone the Closing
Date but in no event for longer than seven days, in order that the required
changes, if any, in the Registration Statement and in the Prospectus or in
any other documents or arrangements may be effected.  Any action taken
under this paragraph shall not relieve any defaulting Underwriter from
liability in respect of any default of such Underwriter under this Agree-
ment.

             If this Agreement shall be terminated by the Underwriters, or
any of them, because of any failure or refusal on the part of the Company
to comply with the terms or to fulfill any of the conditions of this
Agreement, or if for any reason the Company shall be unable to perform
its obligations under this Agreement, the Company will reimburse the
Underwriters or such Underwriters as have so terminated this Agreement
with respect to themselves, severally, for all out-of-pocket expenses
(including the fees and disbursements of their counsel) reasonably incurred
by such Underwriters in connection with this Agreement or the offering
contemplated hereunder.

             This Agreement may be signed in two or more counterparts,
each of which shall be an original, with the same effect as if the signatures
thereto and hereto were upon the same instrument.

                                       19


             This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in
accordance with the internal laws of the State of New York.

                                       Very truly yours,

                                       MATTEL, INC.

          Price Acquisition and was not incurred in

                       AMENDED AND RESTATED
                       EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT


THIS AMENDED AND RESTATED EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT (the "Agreement")
between Mattel, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Mattel") and __________
_________________ (the "Executive"), dated as of the ____ day of _____
____ , 199_.

     Executive and Mattel are parties to an Employment Agreement
dated as of __________________, (the "Existing Employment Agreement")
providing for the employment of Executive.

     Executive and Mattel desire to amend and restate the Existing
Employment Agreement in its entirety.

     In consideration of the premises and for other good and valuable
consideration, the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, Executive
and Mattel agree to amend and restate the Existing Employment
Agreement in its entirety as follows:

     1.  Employment Period.  Mattel hereby agrees to continue the
Executive in its employ, and the Executive hereby agrees to remain
in the employ of Mattel for the period commencing on the date of this
Agreement and ending on the earlier to occur of (i) the third
anniversary of such date or (ii) the first day of the month

                                  1


coinciding with or next following the Executive's sixty-fifth birthday.
Such date is herein called the "Normal Retirement Date" and such
period the "Employment Period"; provided, however, that commencing
on the first day of the month next following the effective date
hereof, and on the first day of each month hereafter (the most recent
of such dates is hereinafter referred to as the "Renewal Date"), the
Employment Period shall be automatically extended so as to terminate
on the earlier of (x) three years from such Renewal Date or (y) the
first day of the month coinciding with or next following the
Executive's Normal Retirement Date, unless at least 60 days prior to
any Renewal Date Mattel or the Executive shall give notice to the
other that the Employment Period shall not be so extended.

     2.  Duties.   (a)  Executive's Position and Duties.  During the
Employment Period, the Executive's position (including titles),
authority and responsibilities shall be similar to those held by the
Executive on the date hereof with such additions and modifications,
and consistent with responsibilities generally assigned to executive
officers of Mattel as the Chief Executive Officer of Mattel may in
his discretion and acting in good faith from time to time assign to
Executive.  The Executive's services shall be performed in the
general area in which Executive was employed on the date of this
Agreement and Executive will not be transferred outside the area
without Executive's consent, other than for normal business travel
and temporary assignments.

                                  2


          (b)  Full Time.  The Executive agrees to devote his full
business time to the business and affairs of Mattel and to use his
best efforts to perform faithfully and efficiently the responsibil-
ities assigned to him hereunder to the extent necessary to discharge
such responsibilities, except for (i) services on corporate, civic
or charitable boards or committees not significantly interfering with
the performance of such responsibilities; (ii) periods of vacation
and sick leave to which he is entitled; and (iii) the management of
his personal investments and affairs.  Executive will not engage in
any outside business activity including, but not limited to, activity
as a consultant, agent, partner or officer or provide services of any
nature directly or indirectly to a corporation or other business
enterprise.

     3.  Compensation.  (a)  Base Salary.  During the Employment
Period, the Executive shall receive a base salary ("Base Salary") at
a monthly rate at least equal to the monthly salary paid to Executive
by Mattel on the date of this Agreement.  The Base Salary shall be
reviewed at least every two years and may be increased at any time
and from time to time by action of the Board of Directors of Mattel
(the "Board") or any committee thereof or any individual having
authority to take such action in accordance with Mattel's regular
practices.  Any increase in the Base Salary shall not serve to limit
or reduce any other obligation of Mattel hereunder, and after any
such increase, the Base Salary shall not be reduced.

                                  3


          (b)  Bonus Programs.  In addition to the Base Salary, the
Executive shall continue to participate in Mattel's cash and deferred
bonus or incentive plans or programs ("Bonus Programs") as may be in
effect from time to time with respect to executives employed by
Mattel at a participation level reflecting Executive's responsibili-
ties, including but not limited to, the Management Incentive Plan and
Long-Term Incentive Plan as they may be modified from time to time
and including any plans substituted therefore, provided, however,
except as provided in Section 5(f) hereof, the determination of the
amounts to be paid pursuant to such plans shall be made by the Board
or a committee thereof authorized to take such action and shall be
made in accordance with Mattel's compensation practice and the terms
and provisions of such plans or programs.

          (c)  Incentive and Savings Plans.  In addition to the Base
Salary and participation in the Bonus Programs, during the Employment
Period the Executive shall continue to be entitled to participate in
all incentive and savings plans and programs, including stock option
plans, as well as in all retirement plans, including the Mattel
Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan, as may be in effect from time
to time with respect to executives employed by Mattel at Executive's
level reflecting Executive's responsibilities.

                                  4


          (d)  Benefit Plans.  The Executive and/or his family, as
the case may be, shall be entitled to receive all amounts which he
or his family is or would have been entitled to receive as benefits
under all medical, dental, disability, group life, accidental death
and travel accident insurance plans and programs of Mattel in which
Executive is a participant as in effect from time to time with
respect to executives employed by Mattel.

          (e)  Expenses.  During the Employment Period, the Executive
shall be entitled to receive prompt reimbursement for all reasonable
expenses incurred by the Executive in accordance with the policies
and practices of Mattel as in effect from time to time with respect
to executives employed by Mattel.

          (f)  Fringe Benefits.  The Executive shall be entitled to
fringe benefits, including an automobile, a club membership and
related expenses, and financial counseling in accordance with the
policies of Mattel as in effect from time to time with respect to
executives employed by Mattel.

          (g)  Vacation.  During the Employment Period, the Executive
shall be entitled to paid vacation in accordance with the policies
of Mattel as in effect from time to time with respect to executives
employed by Mattel.

                                  5


          (h)  Certain Amendments.  Nothing herein shall be construed
to prevent Mattel from amending, altering, eliminating or reducing
any plans, benefits or programs so long as the Executive continues
to have the opportunity to receive compensation and benefits consis-
tent with Sections 3(a) through (g).

     4.  Termination.  (a)  Death or Disability.  This Agreement
shall terminate automatically upon the Executive's death.  Mattel may
terminate this Agreement, after having established the Executive's
Disability, by giving to the Executive written notice of its
intention to terminate his employment, and his employment with Mattel
shall terminate effective on the 90th day after receipt of such
notice (the "Disability Effective Date").  For purposes of this
Agreement, an Executive's Disability shall be deemed to have occurred
when the Executive becomes entitled to receive disability benefits
under the Mattel Long-Term Disability Plan for exempt employees.

          (b)  Cause.  Mattel may terminate the Executive's employ-
ment for "Cause" if a majority of the Board determines that "Cause"
exists.  For purposes of this Agreement, "Cause" means (i) an act or
acts of dishonesty on the Executive's part which are intended to
result in his substantial personal enrichment at the expense of
Mattel or (ii) repeated violations by the Executive of his obliga-
tions under Section 2 of this Agreement which are demonstrably
willful and deliberate on the Executive's part and

                                  6


which resulted in material injury to Mattel or (iii) conduct of a
criminal nature may or which is likely to have an adverse impact on Mattel's
reputation or standing in the community or on its relationship with
its customers or those who purchase or use its products (iv)
fraudulent conduct in connection with the business or affairs of
Mattel, regardless of whether said conduct is designed to defraud
Mattel or others.

          (c)  Good Reason.  The Executive may terminate his
employment for Good Reason.  For purposes of this Agreement, "Good
Reason" means:

               (i)  Without the express written consent of the
Executive, the assignment to the Executive of any duties inconsistent
in any substantial respect with the Executive's position, authority
or responsibilities as contemplated by Section 2 of this Agreement;

               (ii)  any failure by Mattel to comply with any of the
provisions of Section 3 of this Agreement, other than an insubstan-
tial and inadvertent failure remedied by Mattel promptly after
receipt of notice thereof given by the Executive;

               (iii) Mattel requires the Executive without his
consent to be based at any office or location other than an office
or location in the general area where Executive was based on the

                                  7


date of this Agreement, except for travel reasonably required in the
performance of the Executive's responsibilities;

               (iv) any purposed termination by Mattel of the
Executive's employment otherwise than as permitted by this Agreement;
or

               (v) any failure by Mattel to obtain the assumption and
agreement to perform this Agreement by a successor as contemplated
by Section 11(b).

          (d)  Change of Control.  A "Change of Control" shall be
deemed to have occurred if:

               (i) any "Person", which shall mean a "person" as such
term is used in Sections 13(d) and 14(d) of the Securities Exchange
Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act") (other than Mattel, any
trustee or other fiduciary holding securities under an employee
benefit plan of Mattel) is or becomes the "beneficial owner" (as
defined in Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act), directly or indirect-
ly, or securities of Mattel representing 30% or more of the combined
voting power of Mattel's then outstanding voting securities;

               (ii) during any period of 24 consecutive months,
individuals, who at the beginning of such period constitute the Board
of Mattel, and any new director whose election by the Board,

                                  8


or whose nomination for election by Mattel's stockholders, was approved
by a vote of at least one-half (1/2) of the directors (other than in
connection with a contested election) cease for any reason to
constitute at least a majority thereof;

               (iii) the stockholders of Mattel approve (I) a plan
of complete liquidation of Mattel or (II) the sale or disposition by
Mattel for all or substantially all of Mattel's assets unless the
acquirer of the assets or its board of directors shall meet the
conditions for a merger or consolidation in subparagraphs (iv) (I)
or (iv) (II) below; or

               (iv) the consummation of a merger or consolidation of
Mattel with any other company other than:

                    (I) such a merger or consolidation which would
result in the voting securities of Mattel outstanding immediately
prior thereto continuing to represent (either by remaining outstand-
ing or by being converted into voting securities of the surviving
entity) more than 50% of the combined voting power of Mattel's or
such surviving entity's outstanding voting securities immediately
after such merger or consolidation; or

                    (II) such a merger or consolidation, which would
result in the directors of Mattel who were directors immediately
prior thereto, continuing to constitute at least 50% of

                                  9


the directors of the surviving entity immediately after such merger
or consolidation.

In this paragraph (iv), "surviving entity" shall mean only an entity
in which all of Mattel's stockholders immediately before such merger
or consolidation become stockholders by the terms of such merger or
consolidation, and the phrase "directors of Mattel who were directors
immediately prior thereto" shall include only individuals who were
directors of Mattel at the beginning of the 24 consecutive month
period preceding the date of such merger or consolidation.

          (e)  Notice of Termination.  Any termination by Mattel for
Cause or following a Change of Control or by the Executive for Good
Reason shall be communicated by Notice of Termination to the other
party hereto given in accordance with Section 13(b).  Any termination
by Mattel due to Disability shall be given in accordance with Section
4(a).  For purposes of this Agreement, a "Notice of Termination"
means a written notice which (i) indicates the specific termination
provision in this Agreement relied upon, (ii) and except in the event
of a termination as a result of a Change of Control, sets forth in
reasonable detail the facts and circumstances claimed to provide a
basis for termination of the Executive's employment under the
provision so indicated, and (iii) if the termination date is other
than the date of receipt of such notice,

                                  10


specifies the termination date of this Agreement (which date shall
be not more than 15 days after the giving of such notice).

          (f)  Date of Termination.  "Date of Termination" means the
fifth day following the mailing (or if personally delivered, the date
of delivery) of the Notice of Termination or any later date specified
therein, as the case may be.  Notwithstanding any contrary provision
in Section 4(e), if the Executive's employment is terminated by
Mattel for any reason other than Cause, Death, or Disability, the
Date of Termination is the date on which Mattel notifies the
Executive of such termination; if the Executive's employment is
terminated due to Disability, the Date of Termination is the
Disability Effective Date, and if the Executive's employment is
terminated due to the Executive's death, the Date of Termination
shall be the date of death.

     5.   Obligations of Mattel upon Termination.
          (a)  Death.  If the Executive's employment is terminated
by reason of the Executive's death, this Agreement shall terminate
without further obligations to the Executive's legal representatives
under this Agreement other than those obligations accrued hereunder
at the date of his death.  Anything in this Agreement to the contrary
notwithstanding, the Executive's family shall be entitled to receive
benefits at least equal to those provided by Mattel to surviving
families of executives of Mattel under the plan, programs and
policies described in Sections 3(d) and 3(f) of

                                  11


this Agreement, if any, as in effect from time to time with respect
to executives employed by Mattel with comparable responsibilities and
their families.

          (b)  Disability.  If the Executive's employment is
terminated by reason of the Executive's Disability, the Executive
shall be entitled to receive after the Disability Effective Date
disability and other benefits at least equal to those provided by
Mattel to disabled employees and/or their families in accordance with
the plans, programs and policies described in Sections 3(d) and 3(f)
of this Agreement if and as in effect on the Disability Effective
Date with respect to executives with comparable responsibilities and
their families.

          (c)  Cause.  If the Executive's employment shall be
terminated for Cause or if the Executive terminates his employment
without Good Reason, Mattel shall pay the Executive his full Base
Salary through the Date of Termination at the rate in effect at the
time Notice of Termination is given, and Mattel shall have no further
obligations to the Executive under this Agreement.

          (d)  Good Reason Other Than for Cause or Disability.
               (i)  Lump Sum Payments.  If during the Employment
Period Mattel shall terminate the Executive's employment other than
for Cause or Disability, or the Executive shall terminate his
employment for Good Reason other than a termination for Good Reason

                                  12


within 18 months following a Change of Control as provided in Section
5(e);
                    (I)  Mattel shall pay to the Executive in a lump
sum in cash within 30 days after the Date of Termination the
aggregate of the following amounts:

                         (A)  if not theretofore paid, the Executive's
Base Salary through the Date of Termination at the rate in effect
at the time of Notice of Termination was given; and

                         (B)  an amount equal to the average annual
Management Incentive Plan bonus, if any, paid to Executive pursuant
to the Bonus Programs provided in Section 3(b) with respect to the
two fiscal years next preceding the Date of Termination ("Annual
Bonus") multiplied by a fraction whose numerator shall be the number
of full months that have elapsed from the end of the last fiscal year
with respect to which a Management Incentive Plan bonus calculation
was made, and ending on the Date of Termination and the denominator
shall be 12.

                         (C)  an amount under the Long-Term Incentive
Plan which had been determined and allocated to Executive's account
under such plan plus amounts that had been earned in the next
preceding fiscal year that were not determined or allocated at the
Date of Termination but would have been allocated to Executive had
he continued in the employ of Mattel; such latter

                                  13


amounts to be payable 30 days after such amounts have been determined.

                         (D)  three times the sum of (x) the
Executive's annual Base Salary at the rate in effect at the time the
Notice of Termination is given and (y) the Annual Bonus defined in
Section 5(d)(I)(B).

                    (II)  Options granted to Executive under Mattel's
stock option plans (the "Stock Option Plan") which options have been
outstanding for more than six months shall become immediately
exercisable and Executive shall have for a period of 90 days
following such Date of Termination to exercise all options granted
under the Stock Option Plans then exercisable, but not to exceed the
term of the grant, or which become exercisable pursuant to this
clause (II).

                    (III)  Awards of share units granted to Executive
shall become payable as of the Date of Termination and the amount
payable shall be determined by multiplying the value of the share
units by a fraction whose numerator shall be the number of full
months that have elapsed since the date of award of the share units
and the denominator shall be the number of months from the date of
the award of the share units to the date the share

                                  14


units are payable.  The value of the share units shall be determined
in accordance with Section 6 of the award agreement with the Valuation
Date defined therein being the Date of Termination.

                    (IV)  In addition, Mattel shall, promptly upon
submission by the Executive of supporting documentation, pay or
reimburse to the Executive any costs and expenses paid or incurred
by the Executive which would have been payable under Section 3(e) if
his employment had not terminated; and

                    (V)  Until the earlier of (i) the first day of
the month coinciding with or next following the Executive's Normal
Retirement Date, (ii) the third anniversary of the Date of Termina-
tion referred to in this Section, or (iii) the date Executive accepts
other employment, Mattel shall continue benefits to the Executive
and/or his family at least equal to those which would have been
provided to them in accordance with the plans, programs and policies
described in Sections 3(d) and 3(f) of this Agreement if the
Executive's employment had not been terminated, if and as in effect
from time to time with respect to executives employed by Mattel with
comparable responsibilities and their families.  The last 18 months
of Executive's participation shall be deemed to be participation
under an election to continue such benefits under the Consolidated
Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act.

                                  15


                    (VI)  For purposes of the Mattel Supplemental
Executive Retirement Plan, Executive shall be credited with three
years of service in addition to his years of service actually accrued
through the Date of Termination.

          (e)  Change of Control.  If during the Employment Period
and within 18 months following a Change of Control, Executive shall
terminate his employment for Good Reason as defined in Section 4(c)
or if Mattel terminates the Executive's employment other than for
Cause or Disability;
                    (i)  Mattel shall pay to the Executive in a lump
sum in cash within 30 days after the Date of Termination the
aggregate of the following amounts:
                         (A)  if not theretofore paid, the Executive's
Base Salary through the Date of Termination at the rate in effect
at the time of Notice of Termination was given; and
                         (B)  an amount equal to the Management
Incentive Plan bonus that would have been payable to executives of
Mattel in the same bonus category as Executive pursuant to the Bonus
Programs provided in Section 3(b) assuming, for purposes of calculat-
ing the amount of the bonus pool under the plan, that the "maximum"
amount, as that term is used in the plan, were achieved, ("Annual
Bonus") multiplied by a fraction whose numerator shall be the number
of full months that have elapsed from the end of the last fiscal year
with respect to which a Management Incentive Plan bonus calculation
was made, and ending on the Date of Termination

                                  16


and the denominator shall be 12.  The year on which the computation
is based shall be the year in which the Date of Termination occurred;

                         (C)  an amount under the Long-Term Incentive
Plan which had been determined and allocated to  Executive's account
under such plan plus amounts that had been earned in the next
preceding fiscal year that were not determined or allocated as of the
Date of Termination but would have been allocated to Executive had
he continued in the employ of Mattel; such latter amounts to be
payable 30 days after such amounts have been determined.

                         (D)  three times the sum of (x) the
Executive's annual Base Salary at the rate in effect at the time the
Notice of Termination is given, (y) the Executive's Annual Bonus, and
(z) Current Year's Long-Term Bonus.  For purposes of this clause (D),
Current Year's Long-Term Bonus shall be an amount equal to the Long-
Term Bonus provided in Section 3(b) that would have been allocated
to Executive, assuming, for purposes of calculating the amount earned
under the plan, that the maximum payment, as that term is used in the
plan, was achieved and the year on which the computation is based is
the year in which the Date of Termination occurred.

                                  17


                    (ii)   If it is determined that the payment or
distribution by Mattel to Executive pursuant to Section 5(e)
(determined without regard to any additional payments required
pursuant to this sentence) (a "Payment") would be subject to the
excise tax imposed by Section 4999 of the Internal Revenue Code of
1986 (the "Code") or any interest or penalties are incurred by
Executive with respect to such excise tax (such excise tax, together
with any such interest and penalties, are hereinafter collectively
referred to as the "Excise Tax"), then Executive shall be entitled
to receive an additional payment (a "Gross-Up Payment") in an amount
such that after payment by Executive of all taxes (including any
interest or penalties imposed with respect to such taxes), including,
without limitation, any income taxes (and any interest and penalties
imposed with respect thereto) and Excise Tax imposed upon the Gross-
Up Payment, Executive retains an amount of the Gross-Up Payment equal
to the Excise Tax imposed upon the Payments.

                    (iii)  In addition, Executive shall receive the
amounts and be entitled to the benefits provided in clauses (IV), (V)
and (VI) of Section 5(d)(i).

          (f)  Bonus During Cancellation Period.  If Mattel notifies
the Executive that the Employment Period provided in Section 1 hereof
will not be automatically extended as provided therein, the compensa-
tion of Executive shall continue as provided

                                  18


in this Agreement for the period provided therein, except that the
amount of short-term incentive compensation payable under the Bonus
Programs with respect to each fiscal year during such period (including
the year in which the notice was given) shall be the Annual Bonus as
determined in Section 5(d)(I)(B).  Amounts payable with respect to the
year in which the term specified in Section 1 expires shall be prorated
based on a fraction the numerator of which is the number of full months
from the beginning of such year until the date of the expiration of
this Agreement and denominator is 12.

     6.   Non-exclusivity of Rights.    Nothing in this Agreement
shall prevent or limit the Executive's continuing or future partici-
pating in any benefit, bonus, incentive or other plan or program
provided by Mattel and for which the Executive may qualify, nor shall
anything herein limit or otherwise affect such rights as the
Executive may have under any stock option or other agreements with
Mattel or any of its affiliated companies.  Except as otherwise
provided herein, amounts which are vested benefits or which the
Executive is otherwise entitled to receive under any plan or program
of Mattel at or subsequent to the Date of Termination shall be
payable in accordance with such plan or program.

     7.   No Set Off, Payment of Fees.  Except as provided herein,
Mattel's obligation to make the payments provided for in this
Agreement and otherwise to perform its obligations hereunder shall

                                  19


not be affected by any circumstances, including without limitation
any set-off, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which
Mattel may have against the Executive or others.  Mattel agrees to
pay, to the full extent permitted by law, all legal fees and expenses
which the Executive may reasonably incur as a result of any contest
(regardless of the outcome thereof) by Mattel or others of the
validity or enforceability of, or liability under, any provision of
this Agreement other than expenses relating to a claim by Executive
that he terminated for Good Reason or that the termination for Cause
was improper, in which case such fees and expenses shall be paid only
if Executive prevails in whole or in part.  All amounts provided
herein shall include, in each case, interest, compounded quarterly,
on the total unpaid amount determined to be payable under this
Agreement, such interest to be calculated on the basis of the prime
commercial lending rate announced by Bank of American National Trust
and Savings Association in effect from time to time during the period
of such nonpayment.  In the event that the Executive shall in good
faith give a Notice of Termination for Good Reason and it shall
thereafter be determined that Good Reason did not exist, the
employment of the Executive shall, unless Mattel and the Executive
shall otherwise mutually agree, be deemed to have terminated at the
date of giving such purported Notice of Termination by mutual consent
of Mattel and the Executive shall be entitled to receive only those
payments and benefits which he would have been entitled to receive
at such date.

                                  20


     8.   Arbitration of Disputes. (a) The parties agree that any
disputes, controversies or claims which arise out of or relate to
this Agreement, Executive's employment or the termination of his
employment, including, but not limited to, any claim relating to the
purported validity, interpretation, enforceability or breach of this
Agreement, and/or any other claim or controversy arising out of the
relationship between the Executive and Mattel (or the nature of the
relationship) or the continuation or termination of that relation-
ship, including, but not limited to, claims that a termination was
for Cause, including the Board's determination in accordance with
Section 4(b), or for Good Reason, claims for breach of covenant,
breach of an implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing,
wrongful termination, breach of contract, or intentional infliction
of emotional distress, defamation, breach of right of privacy,
interference with advantageous or contractual relations, fraud,
conspiracy or other tort or property claims of any kind, which are
not settled by agreement between the parties, shall be settled by
arbitration before a board of three arbitrators.

     One arbitrator shall be selected by the Executive, one by Mattel
and the third by the two persons so selected, all in accordance with
the labor arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association
then in effect.  In the event that the arbitrator selected by the
Executive and the arbitrator selected by Mattel are unable to agree
upon a third arbitrator, then the third arbitrator shall be selected
from a list of seven provided by the

                                  21

office of the American Arbitration Association nearest to the employee's
residence with the parties striking names in order and the party striking
first to be determined by the flip of a coin.  The arbitration shall be
held in a location to be mutually agreed upon by the parties. In the absence
of agreement, the Chairman of the Board of Mattel shall determine the
location.

          (b) In consideration of the parties' agreement to submit
to arbitration all disputes with regard to this Agreement and/or with
regard to any alleged contract, or any other claim arising out of
their conduct, the relationship existing hereunder or the continua-
tion or termination of that relationship, and in further consider-
ation of the anticipated expedition and the minimizing of expense of
this arbitration remedy, the arbitration provisions of this Agreement
shall provide the exclusive remedy, and each party expressly waives
any right he or it may have to seek redress in any other forum.

          (c) Any claim which either party has against the other
party which could be submitted for resolution pursuant to this
Section must be presented in writing by the claiming party to the
other within one year of the date the claiming party knew or should
have known of the facts giving rise to the claim, except that claim
arising out of or related to the termination of the Executive's
employment must be presented by him within one year of the Date of
Termination. Unless the party against whom any claim is asserted

                                  22


waives the time limits set forth above, any claim not brought within
the time periods specified shall be waived and forever barred.

          (d)  Mattel will pay all costs and expenses of  the
arbitration to the extent provided in Section 8, hereof.  In the
event expenses are not paid by Mattel, and without diminishing the
Executive's right to reimbursement as provided in this Section costs
and expenses shall be paid as follows:  (x) the expenses of the
neutral arbitrator and of a transcript of any arbitration proceeding
shall be divided equally between the Executive and Mattel; and (y)
each party shall bear the expenses of the arbitrator selected by it
and of the witnesses it calls.

          (e)  Any decision and award or order of the majority of the
arbitrators shall be binding upon the parties hereto and judgment
thereon may be entered in the Superior Court of the State of
California or any other court having jurisdiction.

          (f)  Each of the above terms and conditions shall have
separate validity and the invalidity of any part thereof shall not
affect the remaining parts.

          (g)  Any decision and award or order of the majority of the
arbitrators shall be final and binding between the parties as to all
claims which were or could have been raised in connection

                                  23


with the dispute to the full extent permitted by law. In all other cases,
the parties agree that the decision of the board of arbitrators shall be
a condition precedent to the institution or maintenance of any legal,
equitable, administrative, or other formal proceeding by the employee
in connection with the dispute, and that the decision and opinion of
the board of arbitrators may be presented in any other forum on the
merits of the dispute.

     9.   General Release.  Executive acknowledges and agrees that
this Agreement includes the entire agreement and understanding
between the parties with regard to Executive's employment or the
termination thereof during the Employment Period and all amounts to
which Executive shall be entitled whether during the term of
employment or upon termination thereof.  Accordingly, upon Mattel's
fulfilling its obligations to Executive hereunder, Executive, on
behalf of himself and his related individuals and entities, if any,
including, but not limited to, any predecessors, successors/ assigns,
and any and all other related individuals and entities, if any, and
each of them, shall and does hereby forever relieve, release, and
discharge Mattel and its respective predecessors, successors,
assigns, owners, attorneys representatives, affiliates, parent
corporations, subsidiaries (whether or not wholly-owned), divisions,
partners and their officers, directors, agents, employees, servants,
executors, administrators, accountants, investigators, insurers, and
any and all other related individuals and entities, if any, and each
of them, in any and all capacities,

                                  24


from any and all claims, debts,
liabilities, demands, obligations, liens, promises, acts, agreements,
costs and expenses (including, but not limited to, attorneys' fees),
damages, actions and causes of action, of whatever kind or nature,
including, without limitation, any statutory, civil or administrative
claim, or any claim, arising out of acts or omissions occurring
before the execution of this Agreement, whether known or unknown,
suspected or unsuspected, fixed or contingent, apparent or concealed
(collectively referred to as "claims"), including, but not limited
to, any claims based on, arising out of, related to or connected with
the subject matter of this Agreement, Executive's employment or the
termination thereof, and any and all facts in any manner arising out
of, related to or connected with Executive's employment with, or
termination of employment from, Mattel or any of its related
entities, including, but not limited to, any claims arising from
rights under federal, state, and local laws prohibiting discrimina-
tion on the basis of race, national origin, sex, religion, age,
marital status, pregnancy, handicap, ancestry, sexual orientation,
or any other form of discrimination, and any common law claims of any
kind, including, but not limited to, contact, tort, and property
rights including, but not limited to, breach of contract, breach of
the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, tortious
interference with contract or current or prospective economic
advantage, fraud, deceit, misrepresentation, defamation, wrongful
termination, infliction of emotional distress, breach of

                                  25


fiduciary duty, and any other common law claim of any kind whatever.

     Upon Mattel's fulfilling its obligations to Executive hereunder,
Executive expressly waives any and all rights under Section 1542 of
the Civil Code of the State of California, or any other federal or
state statutory rights or rules, or principles of common law or
equity, or those of any jurisdiction, government, or political
subdivision thereof, similar to Section 1542 ("similar provision").
Thus Executive may not invoke the benefits of Section 1542 or any
similar provision in order to prosecute or assert in any manner any
claims released hereunder. Section 1542 provides as follows:


          "A general release does not extend to claims
          which the creditor does not know or suspect to
          exist in his favor at the time of executing the
          release, which if known by him must have materi-
          ally affected his settlement with the debtor."

     10.  Confidential Information.  The Executive shall hold in
a fiduciary capacity for the benefit of Mattel all secret or
confidential information, knowledge or data relating to Mattel or any
of its affiliated companies, and their respective businesses,

                                    MATTEL, INC.

                                     HIGHLIGHTS
                                     ----------
                           1993 MANAGEMENT INCENTIVE PLAN
                           ------------------------------

OBJECTIVES

     -    Focus on key Mattel goals -- "growth in earnings" and "asset
            management"
     -    Recognize individual contributions, while emphasizing a team approach
     -    Link participants' compensation to Mattel's business performance

PARTICIPATION

Eligibility extends to employees with the position of manager or above, and/or
those at salary grade 26 or higher.  In addition, all participants must:

     -    Be an active employee as of September 30, 1993
     -    Be an active employee as of the date bonuses are distributed in
            March, 1994

BONUS CRITERIA

The Management Incentive Plan provides an annual cash bonus to participating
employees based on the following factors:

     -    Corporate and division financial results
     -    Position in the company
     -    Individual employee performance

FUNDING

The incentive pool is funded based upon the following measurements of business
performance:

     -    Corporate Net Income
     -    Growth in Division Operating Profit
     -    Cash Flow Return on Investment (CFROI), which is a ratio of annual
            cash flow (driven by operating profit) and net investments
            driven by accounts receivable and inventory)

The entire incentive pool is generated and funded as a percentage of corporate
net income based upon the level of corporate earnings attained.  The total pool
is then allocated between the corporation, its divisions and the Affiliates.

     -    Division and Affiliate pools receive 75% of their funding based on
            their performance and 25% based on corporate performance
     -    Corporate staff funding will be determined based on overall corporate
            results

The benchmarks for the levels of funding are:

     -    Maximum - pool is 100% funded, if corporate results exceed the
                    business plan
     -    Plan    - pool is 67% funded, if corporate results meet the business
                    plan

INDIVIDUAL INCENTIVE AWARDS

Your individual award is then determined based on the total incentive pool
generated, your division's financial results, your position in the company and
your individual performance.  The fund generated for each position (expressed
as a percentage of prorated salary) will be based on:

POSITION PLAN MAXIMUM ------------------------ -------- --------- Executive VP/Sr. VP 43% 65% Vice President 40% 60% Sr. Director/Director 33% 50% Sr. Manager 20% 30% Manager 10% 15%
These percentages are provided only as a benchmark. The actual amount of your incentive payment may vary depending on the size of the pool, which is directly determined by corporate/division performance, and more significantly, your individual performance. SUMMARY The Management Incentive Plan provides a significant benefit to both the participants and the company's stockholders. The more efficient and pro-active we are as managers of Mattel's assets, the better the margins and returns on invested capital. Each of us contributes to these measures of success, and this plan offers its participants the ability to achieve lucrative incentives for truly superior company and individual performance. This is only a summary of the Plan. The Compensation/Options Committee has the authority to interpret the Plan and to establish rules and regulations for administration of the Plan. The Compensation/Options Committee may at any time amend, modify or terminate the Plan. (May 1993)

("Mattel"), with reference to the following facts:

          A.   Grantee and Mattel are parties to the Award

pursuant to which Grantee was awarded Stock Appreciation Rights

          B.   Grantee and Mattel desire to amend the Award
Agreement to reflect the 5 for 4 and 3 for 2 stock splits which

leverage formula of the Stock Appreciation Rights for stock
prices above $26.67.

          C.   Grantee and Mattel desire further to amend the
Award Agreement to provide a new method of selecting the
comparison Mattel stock price for valuation of the Stock
Appreciation Rights if certain financial performance tests are
met for fiscal years 1994 and 1995.

          For good and valuable consideration, receipt of which
is hereby acknowledged, the parties agree as follows:

                    preceding the Valuation Date (the "Recent
                    Average Price"); provided, however that if
                    either

                    (i)  Mattel achieves a Cash Flow Return on
                    Investment of 25% for the year ended

                    on the first Valuation Date, or the year
                    ended December 31, 1995, for determining Unit

                    (ii) the closing price of the Common Stock on

               b)   Initial Unit Value shall be the amount, if
                    any, by which the Fair Market Value exceeds
                    the Initial Value.

               c)   Cash Flow Return on Investment shall mean the
                    consolidated cash flow return on investment
                    of Mattel as calculated by the chief
                    financial officer of Mattel based upon the

goals set forth on Schedule I hereto, if, during the Restriction
Period, (i) the Grantee's employment with the Company is
terminated by the Company other than for Cause or Disability, or
(ii) the Grantee's employment with the Company is terminated by
the Grantee for Good Reason, then the shares of Restricted Stock
granted hereunder shall vest pro rata, determined by multiplying
the number of shares granted hereunder by a fraction, the
numerator of which is the number of months which have elapsed
from the date hereof until the date of such termination, and the
denominator of which is thirty-six (36).

                 (c)  If, during the Restriction Period, (i) the

death or Disability, (ii) the Grantee's employment with the
Company is terminated by the Grantee without Good Reason, or
(iii) the Grantee's employment with the Company is terminated by
the Company for Cause, then the shares of Restricted Stock
granted hereunder shall be immediately forfeited to the Company,
and the Grantee shall have no further rights with respect to such
Restricted Shares.

                 (d)  For purposes of this Agreement, "Cause",
"Disability and "Good Reason" shall have the meanings given such
terms in the Amended and Restated Employment Agreement between
the Grantee and the Company dated as of November 11, 1993.

            5.   Delivery of Share Certificates.  Upon the
vesting of any shares of Restricted Stock granted hereunder, the

to the Grantee.  In the case of the Grantee's death, such
certificates will be delivered to the beneficiary designated in
writing by the Grantee pursuant to a form of designation provided
by the Company, to the Grantee's legatee or legatees, or to his
personal representatives or distributees, as the case may be.

            6.   Binding Effect.  This Agreement shall be binding
upon the heirs, executors, administrators and successors of the
parties hereto.

            7.   Governing Law.  This Agreement shall be
construed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the
State of California without reference to rules relating to
conflict of law.

            8.   Headings.  Headings are for the convenience of
the parties and are not deemed to be a part of this Agreement.

                                       2

Dear [Executive]:

     This agreement will constitute a revision and amendment to the letter
agreement dated February 25, 1992 between [Executive] and Fisher-Price, Inc.,
a Delaware corporation ("Fisher-Price").

     You will continue to be employed by Fisher-Price as its [Title], at a
minimum base salary rate of $________ per annum ("Base Salary").

     You will participate in The Fisher-Price Executive Incentive Bonus Plan
dated June 28, 1991 ("Incentive Bonus Plan") at a "Target Incentive Factor" of
35%, a "Corporate/Unit Range of Ratings" of 0.00 to 2.5, and an "Individual
Range of Ratings" of 0.00 to 1.5.  (All quoted phrases shall have the meanings
set forth in the Incentive Bonus Plan.)  In addition, you will be issued
restricted Common Stock of Fisher-Price under The Long Term Incentive Plan
of 1991 ("LTIP") equal to 25% of each actual cash payout to you (whether or
not deferred) under the Incentive Bonus Plan.

     You will be eligible to participate in all Fisher-Price benefit programs
applicable to your position, in accordance with the terms of such benefit
programs.

     In the event that we terminate your employment for reasons other than a
Change of Control as specified below, we shall pay you in a lump sum upon the
date of your termination, a payment equal to 18 months of your then annual
salary (not less than your Base Salary), a payment, in lieu of any payments or
stock due under the Incentive Bonus Plan and the LTIP, of 50% of your then
gross annual salary (not less than your Base Salary) for said 18 months, less
customary deductions for Federal and state tax withholding and F.I.C.A.
deductions, if any, as a severance consideration; provided, however, that if
your employment is involuntarily terminated because of death, or any act,
material in nature, constituting embezzlement, fraud or any other willful
misconduct involving moral turpitude, this agreement shall terminate and you
will be paid all salaried amounts and benefits accrued through the date of
termination and shall not be entitled



to any other payments. Your right to the payments described in this paragraph
shall be conditioned upon your signing an effective waiver of any claims under
the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and any other federal and state
employment discrimination laws.

     If there is a Change of Control of Fisher-Price and you elect to resign
from Fisher-Price or your employment is terminated within eighteen (18) months
after said Change of Control (a "Qualified Termination"), Fisher-Price shall
pay you in a lump sum, within 10 days of your termination of employment, an
amount equal to the product of (x) three, and (y) the sum of your then annual
salary (not less than your Base Salary) and the incentive payment calculated
under the Incentive Bonus Plan (designated "EIB Award" in said Plan), as in
effect immediately prior to the Change of Control, using a Corporate/Unit
Rating of 1.50 and an Individual Rating of 1.50, as those terms are used in
the Incentive Bonus Plan as in effect immediately prior to the Change of
Control. The above payments shall be reduced by customary Federal and state
withholding taxes, as required by law. In addition, for three years after a
Qualified Termination, Fisher-Price shall continue to provide you with medical
insurance no less favorable than that provided to you immediately prior to the
Change of Control on terms no less favorable (including co-payments and
deductibles) to you than the terms existing immediately prior to the Change of
Control.  For purposes of determining your eligibility (but not the time of
commencement of benefits) for retiree medical benefits you shall be considered
to have remained employed until three years after your date of termination
and to have retired on the last day of such period. Upon a Change of Control,
all shares of restricted Common Stock held by you shall become free of all
restrictions and fully vested and all non-statutory options shall become
immediately exercisable and fully vested. In the event it shall be determined
that any payment or distribution by Fisher-Price for your benefit (whether paid
or payable or distributed or distributable pursuant to the terms of this
agreement or otherwise, but determined without regard to any additional payments
required pursuant to this sentence) (a "Payment") would be subject to the excise
tax imposed by Section 4999 of the Code or any interest or penalties are
incurred by you with respect to such excise tax (such excise tax, together with
any such interest and penalties, are hereinafter collectively referred to as the
"Excise Tax"), then you shall be entitled to receive an additional payment (a
"Gross-Up Payment") in an amount such that after payment by you of all taxes
(including any interest or penalties imposed with respect to such taxes),
including, without limitation, any income taxes (and any interest and penalties
imposed with respect thereto) and Excise Tax imposed upon the Gross-Up Payment,
you retain an amount of the Gross-Up Payment equal to the Excise Tax imposed
upon the Payments.


                                     2


     A "Change of Control" shall be deemed to have occurred if:

     a.   Any "Person", which shall mean a "person" as such term is used in
          Sections 13(d) and 14(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as
          amended (the "Exchange Act") (other than Fisher-Price, any trustee or
          other fiduciary holding securities under an employee benefit plan of
          Fisher-Price, or any company owned, directly or indirectly, by the
          stockholders of Fisher-Price in substantially the same proportions as
          their ownership of stock of Fisher-Price), is or becomes the
          "beneficial owner" (as defined in Rules 13d-3 under the Exchange Act),
          directly or indirectly, of securities of Fisher-Price representing 30%
          or more of the combined voting power of Fisher-Price's then
          outstanding voting securities;

     b.   during any period of 24 consecutive months, individuals, who at the
          beginning of such period constitute the Board of Directors of
          Fisher-Price (the "Board"), and any new director whose election by the
          Board, or whose nomination for election by Fisher-Price's
          stockholders, was approved by a vote of at least two-thirds (2/3) of
          the directors (other than in connection with a contested election)
          before the beginning of the period cease for any reason to constitute
          at least a majority thereof;

     c.   the stockholders of Fisher-Price approve (1) a plan of complete
          liquidation of Fisher-Price or (2) the sale or disposition by
          Fisher-Price of all or substantially all of Fisher-Price's assets
          unless the acquirer of the assets or its directors shall meet the
          conditions for a merger or consolidation in subparagraphs (d)(1) or
          (d)(2); or

     d.   the consummation of a merger or consolidation of Fisher-Price with any
          other company other than:

          1.  such a merger or consolidation which would result in the voting
              securities of Fisher-Price outstanding immediately prior thereto
              continuing to represent (either by remaining outstanding or by
              being converted into voting securities of the surviving entity)
              more than 70% of the combined voting power of Fisher-Price's or
              such surviving entity's outstanding voting securities immediately
              after such merger or consolidation; or


                                     3


          2.  such a merger or consolidation, which would result in the
              directors of Fisher-Price who were directors immediately prior
              thereto, continuing to constitute at least 50% of the directors of
              the surviving entity immediately after such merger or
              consolidation.

     In this paragraph d., "surviving entity" shall mean only an entity in which
     all of Fisher-Price's stockholders immediately before such merger or
     consolidation become stockholders by the terms of such merger or
     consolidation, and the phrase "directors of Fisher-Price who were directors
     immediately prior thereto" shall include only individuals who were
     directors of Fisher-Price at the beginning of the 24 consecutive month
     period preceding the date of such merger or consolidation, or who were new
     directors (other than any director nominated in connection with a contested
     election, or a director designated by a Person who has entered into an
     agreement with Fisher-Price to effect a transaction described in paragraphs
     c.2, d.1 or d.2 of this Section) whose election by the Board, or whose
     nomination for election by Fisher-Price's stockholders was approved by
     a vote of at least two-thirds (2/3) of the directors before the beginning
     of such period.

Except as otherwise provided herein, all individual Federal, State and Excise
taxes are your responsibility.

     Fisher-Price's obligation to make the payments provided for in this
Agreement and otherwise to perform its obligations hereunder shall not be
affected by any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other claim, right
or action which Fisher-Price may have against you or others. In no event shall
you be obligated to seek other employment or take any other action by way of
mitigation of the amounts payable to you under any of the provisions of the
Agreement and such amounts shall not be reduced whether or not you obtain other
employment. Fisher-Price agrees to pay as incurred, to the full extent permitted
by law, all legal fees and expenses which you may reasonably incur as a result
of any contest (regardless of the outcome thereof) by Fisher-Price, by you or
others, of the validity or enforceability of, or liability under, any provision
of this Agreement or any guarantee of performance thereof.


                                     4


      If you agree to continue your employment for Fisher-Price upon the terms
and conditions set forth in this letter, please sign and date both copies where
indicated and return one copy to me.

     The Executive and the Company agree that the Amendment shall be amended by
amending paragraph 5 thereof so that it reads in its entirety as follows:

     If there is a Change of Control of Fisher-Price and thereafter you elect to
resign from Fisher-Price or your employment is terminated (a "Qualified
Termination"), Fisher-Price shall pay you in a lump sum, within 10 days of your
termination of employment, an amount equal to the product of (x) three, and
(y) the sum of your then annual salary (not less than your Base Salary) and the
incentive payment calculated under the Incentive Bonus Plan (designated "EIB
Award" in said Plan), as in effect immediately prior to the Change of Control,
using a Corporate/Unit Rating of 1.50 and an Individual Rating of 1.50, as
those terms are used in the Incentive Bonus Plan as in effect immediately prior
to the Change of Control.  The above payments shall be reduced by customary
Federal and state withholding taxes, as required by law.  In addition, for
three years after a Qualified Termination, Fisher-Price shall continue to
provide you with medical insurance no less favorable than that provided to you
immediately prior to the Change of Control on terms no less favorable (including
co-payments and deductibles) to you than the terms existing immediately prior
to the Change of Control.  For purposes of determining your eligibility (but
not the time of commencement of benefits) for retiree medical benefits you
shall be considered to have remained employed until three years after your date
of termination and to have retired on the last day of such period.  Upon a
Change of Control, all shares of restricted Common Stock held by you shall
become free of all restrictions and fully vested and all non-statutory options
shall become immediately exercisable and fully vested.  In the event it shall
be determined that any payment or distribution by Fisher-Price for your benefit
(whether paid or payable or distributed or distributable pursuant to the terms
of this agreement or otherwise, but determined without regard to any
additional payments required pursuant to this sentence) (a "Payment") would be
subject to the excise tax imposed by Section 4999 of the Code or any interest or
penalties are incurred by you with respect to such excise tax (such excise tax,
together with any such interest and penalties, are hereinafter collectively
referred to as the "Excise Tax"), then you shall be entitled to receive an
additional payment (a "Gross-Up Payment") in an amount such that after payment
by you of all taxes (including any interest or penalties imposed with respect
to such taxes), including, without limitation, any income taxes (and any
interest and penalties imposed with respect thereto) and Excise Tax imposed upon
the Gross-Up Payment, you retain an amount of the Gross-Up Payment equal to the
Excise Tax imposed upon the Payments.




     For the purposes of this Agreement, a "Change of Control" shall be deemed
to have occurred if:

     a.   Any "Person", which shall mean a "person" as such term is used in
          Sections 13(d) and 14(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as
          amended (the "Exchange Act") (other than Fisher-Price, any trustee or
          other fiduciary holding securities under an employee benefit plan of
          Fisher-Price, or any company owned, benefit plan of Fisher-Price, or
          any company owned, directly or indirectly, by the stockholders of
          Fisher-Price in substantially the same proportions as their
          ownership of stock of Fisher-Price), is or becomes the "beneficial
          owner" (as defined in Rules 13d-3 under the Exchange Act), directly
          or indirectly, of securities of Fisher-Price representing 30% or
          more of the combined voting power of Fisher-Price's then
          outstanding voting securities;

     b.   during any period of 24 consecutive months, individuals, who at the
          beginning of such period constitute the Board of Directors of
          Fisher-Price (the "Board"), and any new director whose election by the
          Board, or whose nomination for election by Fisher-Price's
          stockholders, was approved by a vote of at least two-thirds (2/3) of
          the directors (other than in connection with a contested election)
          before the beginning of the period cease for any reason to constitute
          at least a majority thereof;

     c.   the stockholders of Fisher-Price approve (1) a plan of complete
          liquidation of Fisher-Price or (2) the sale or disposition by
          Fisher-Price of all or substantially all of Fisher-Price's assets
          unless the acquirer of the assets or its directors shall meet the
          conditions for a merger or consolidation in subparagraphs (d)(1) or
          (d)(2); or

     d.   the consummation of a merger or consolidation of Fisher-Price with any
          other company other than:

          1.  such a merger or consolidation which would result in the voting
              securities of Fisher-Price outstanding immediately prior thereto
              continuing to represent (either by remaining outstanding or by
              being converted into voting securities of the surviving entity
              more than 70% of the combined voting power of Fisher-Price's or
              such surviving entity's outstanding voting securities immediately
              after such merger or consolidation; or


                                     2


          2.  such a merger or consolidation, which would result in the
              directors of Fisher-Price who were directors immediately prior
              thereto, continuing to constitute at least 50% of the directors of
              the surviving entity immediately after such merger or
              consolidation.

     In this paragraph d., "surviving entity" shall mean only an entity in which
     all of Fisher-Price's stockholders immediately before such merger or
     consolidation become stockholders by the terms of such merger or
     consolidation, and the phrase "directors of Fisher-Price who were directors
     immediately prior thereto" shall include only individuals who were
     directors of Fisher-Price at the beginning of the 24 consecutive month
     period preceding the date of such merger or consolidation, or who were new
     directors (other than any director nominated in connection with a contested
     election, or a director designated by a Person who has entered into an
     agreement with Fisher-Price to effect a transaction described in paragraphs
     c.2, d.1 or d.2 of this Section) whose election by the Board, or whose
     nomination for election by Fisher-Price's stockholders was approved by
     a vote of at least two-thirds (2/3) of the directors before the beginning
     of such period.

     Except as provided above, the Agreement shall remain in full force and
effect.

27 Mattel, Inc. and Subsidiaries MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF RESULTS ----------------------------------------------- OF OPERATIONS AND FINANCIAL CONDITION ------------------------------------- This analysis should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements which begin on page 32. The Company's dedication to its long-term business strategies, which include strengthening its core product lines, expansion of its international marketing and distribution network and constant focus on increasing manufacturing efficiency and flexibility, has resulted in another record year with net sales of over $2.7 billion. Mattel's merger with Fisher-Price completed in the fourth quarter of 1993 is consistent with these strategies and should further enhance the Company's standing as a worldwide leader in the manufacture and marketing of children's toys. Results of Operations - --------------------- The following is a percentage analysis of operating results for the past three years:
For the Year --------------------- 1993 1992 1991 --------------------- Net sales 100% 100% 100% ==== ==== ==== Gross profit 50 50 48 Advertising and promotion expenses 16 16 15 Other selling and administrative expenses 19 19 19 Integration and restructuring charge 4 - - Other expense, net - 1 1 ---- ---- ---- Operating profit 11 14 13 Interest expense 2 3 3 ---- ---- ---- Income before income taxes, extraordinary item and changes in accounting principles 9% 11% 10% ==== ==== ====
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, which include Barbie dolls, doll clothes and accessories, Fisher-Price toys and juvenile products, Disney-licensed toys, die-cast vehicles including Hot Wheels, large dolls, preschool toys and the UNO and Skip-Bo card games, 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 contributed revenues totaling $753.8 million in 1993 compared to $731.1 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 remained constant from year to year. 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 $6.5 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. 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 $17.0 million represented transaction costs of the merger, including investment banking, legal, accounting and related costs, and $30.0 million was related to 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 $68.0 million, approximately $13.0 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 28 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 $0.53 per share on a primary basis and $0.50 per share on a fully diluted basis. Although no assurance can be given, the Company anticipates its integration and restructuring activities will provide cost savings of approximately $45.0 million during 1994, principally as a result of consolidation of facilities and related staff reductions. Available cash reserves and cash flow generated from normal business operations will fund the costs of the integration and restructuring, with no adverse impact expected on the Company's future liquidity or financial position. Of the total integration and restructuring charge accrued, approximately $20.2 million had been expended as of December 31, 1993. 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. 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 $0.08 per fully diluted share, for the prepayment premium and write-off of unamortized issuance costs. 1992 Compared to 1991 - --------------------- The Company's consolidated results of operations include the activities of Fisher-Price for 12 months of 1992 and for the last 6 months of 1991. Prior to July 1, 1991, the business of Fisher-Price was operated as a division of The Quaker Oats Company; therefore, any such prior financial data have been excluded from the Company's combined consolidated financial statements. Net sales increased $517.0 million or 25% over 1991, including the effect of a $314.6 million increase related to Fisher-Price for the 12 months of 1992 over the 6 months of 1991. Excluding Fisher-Price, the Company's worldwide net sales increased $202.4 million or 12%. The increase in combined net sales included favorable foreign currency impacts of $26.5 million and an $86.4 million decrease in Nintendo volume as a result of terminations of the Company's distributorship agreements for Nintendo products in Canada and Italy during the first and third quarters of 1992, respectively. Worldwide sales of core products increased 30%, and represented 86% of total revenues in 1992 compared to 83% for the prior year. Sales of Disney-licensed products grew 45% over 1991 volumes and Barbie product sales were higher by 15%, while large dolls declined 17%. Sales to customers in the United States were 59% of 1992 consolidated revenues compared to 54% in the prior year. In total, domestic sales increased 36%, partially attributable to Fisher-Price volume which represented 33% and 24% of the Company's domestic sales for 1992 and 1991, respectively. Excluding Fisher-Price, domestic sales of the Company grew 18%. Total international sales increased 13% compared to 1991; at constant rates of exchange, international sales increased 10%. Fisher-Price volume represented 17% and 12% of the Company's international sales for 1992 and 1991, respectively. Excluding Fisher- Price, the Company's international volume increased 7%. International revenues excluding Nintendo grew 26% over the prior year, or 23% at constant rates of exchange. Gross profit as a percentage of net sales increased two points to 50%, principally as a result of higher sales volume and an improved product mix due to decreased Nintendo volume. Advertising and promotion spending was $95.4 million over 1991 levels, in support of increased sales of core brands, new product introductions, and further development of markets internationally. The increase also reflects a $45.0 million differential arising from the inclusion of Fisher-Price's activity on a 12-month basis in 1992 versus a 6-month basis in 1991. Other selling and administrative expenses increased $109.3 million, while remaining constant at 19% of net sales. The change in comparison to the prior year reflects a $15.0 million pre-tax provision for doubtful accounts receivable related to Child World and Lionel Leisure, an increase in design and development expenses in connection with the Company's expansion into new product lines and markets, and a $61.1 million differential related to inclusion of Fisher-Price results on full year basis compared to 6 months for 1991. Other expense, net decreased as a result of a reduction in goodwill amortization related to a change in the estimated period of benefit and gains on sales of marketable securities, partially offset by losses on foreign currency transactions. Interest expense for 1992 increased 3% over the prior year, reflecting higher levels of short- term borrowing, issuance of the 6-7/8% Senior Notes in August 1992, and a $4.6 million effect of the inclusion of Fisher-Price activity on a 12- month basis compared to 6 months for 1991. These increases were partially offset by a decrease related to retirement of the Company's 14-3/4% Subordinated Debentures in mid-1991. Income Taxes - ------------ The effective income tax rates for 1993 and 1992 were 42.57% and 34.67%, respectively. The increased effective rate for 1993 resulted from certain nondeductible restructuring costs, increased taxable income earned in locations with relatively higher tax rates, and a reduction in the U.S. tax benefit of foreign tax credits associated with current dividends from subsidiaries located in higher tax rate countries. In both years, benefits from foreign tax credit carryforwards were credited to additional paid-in capital to the extent that they resulted from net operating loss carryforwards originating prior to the Company's 1987 quasi-reorganization. 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 29 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 $0.09 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 1993 as a result of profitable operating results and benefits of reduced levels of bank borrowing. Working capital increased to $687.4 million, and as of year- end, the Company had repaid all of its short-term borrowing. At December 31, 1993, the Company's cash position, including marketable securities, was $523.6 million, compared to $327.8 million as of the prior year end, and exceeded outstanding long-term debt by $195.5 million. Accounts receivable increased 8% over the prior year level, reflecting increases in fourth quarter sales volume as well as early shipping of 1994 product. Inventories decreased 8% compared to the prior year-end, principally as a result of the termination of the distribution agreements for Nintendo products. The $60.8 million net increase in prepaid assets primarily reflects the effect on deferred income tax assets from the Company's adoption of Statement No. 109 in the 1993 first quarter, as well as current tax benefits related to the prepayment of Fisher-Price's long- term debt obligation. The Company's capitalization is as follows:
(In millions) December 31, 1993 December 31, 1992 - ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 6-7/8% Senior notes $ 99.5 8% $ 99.3 9% 6-3/4% Senior notes 100.0 8 - - 8% Convertible subordinated 74.0 6 97.5 8 debentures Fisher-Price term loan - - 98.5 8 Other long-term debt obligations 54.6 5 90.4 8 -------- ---- -------- ---- Total long-term debt 328.1 27 385.7 33 Other long-term liabilities 70.8 6 49.2 4 Shareholders' equity 817.8 67 748.4 63 -------- ---- -------- ---- $1,216.7 100% $1,183.3 100% ======== ==== ======== ====
Total long-term debt decreased as a percentage of total capitalization principally as a result of voluntary conversions of 8% Debentures into common stock by holders of the debt. Shareholders' equity increased 9% over 1992 reflecting profitable operating results for the current year, a credit of $24.3 million related to conversions of the 8% Debentures, a $53.0 million credit to paid-in capital related to the adoption of Statement No. 109, and an increase of $19.0 million for activity related to employee stock compensation plans. These increases were partially offset by treasury stock repurchases of $52.6 million, dividend declarations on common and preferred stock totaling $33.8 million, a $41.1 million net-of-tax charge against paid-in capital related to the cost of terminating a prequasi-reorganization lease commitment and a $21.2 million unfavorable change in the currency translation component of shareholders' equity. In July 1992, two venture capital funds, of which Warburg, Pincus & Co. ("Warburg") is the general partner, distributed to their respective general and limited partners approximately 15.2 million shares, representing 90 percent of the funds' shares of the Company's common stock which had been beneficially owned by Warburg. Immediately after the distribution, none of the general or limited partners held more than 5 percent of the Company's outstanding shares of common stock. Liquidity - --------- Primary sources of liquidity for the Company over the last three years have been cash flows generated from profitable operations, the proceeds of long-term debt issuances, and short-term seasonal borrowing. Operating activities generated cash flows of $303.3 million during 1993, compared to $131.6 million and $335.0 million in 1992 and 1991, respectively. Principal investing activities during 1993 included additions of tooling, property and equipment at various manufacturing 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 facility in Indonesia and the $16.0 million payment of final purchase consideration related to the Company's 1991 acquisition of Aviva Sport, Inc. During 1991, in addition to its acquisition of Aviva Sport, Inc., the Company also acquired the remaining 60% interest in its joint venture with a Mexico City-based group of companies. Financing activities provided intermediate- and long-term funds through issuances of the 6-3/4% Senior Notes in 1993, the 6-7/8% Senior Notes in 1992 and 8% Debentures in 1991, which were utilized by the Company to retire higher-cost debt and for seasonal financing requirements. Cash outlays for treasury stock were made over the three- year period in order to purchase shares for reissuance 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 its 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, 1993, cash generated by 1994 operations, and short-term credit lines provided by domestic and foreign banks. The Company's new domestic credit line consists of unsecured facilities providing a total of $500.0 million in seasonal financing from a commercial bank group. The facilities provide up to $250.0 million for advances and backup for commercial paper issuances (of which $125.0 million is a 364-day facility and the other $125.0 million is a 3-year facility), and an additional 30 3-year facility providing up to $250.0 million for nonrecourse purchases of certain trade accounts receivable by the bank group. In connection with the agreement, the Company must 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 $170.0 million of individual short-term foreign credit lines with a number of banks, which customarily are extended as needed to meet seasonal working capital requirements. Acquisitions - ------------ On November 30, 1993, a merger was consummated between the Company and Fisher-Price, Inc. ("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 approximately 39.1 million pre-split shares valued, on the merger's effective date, at $1.19 billion. This transaction has been 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 connection with the merger, the Company recognized a one-time charge of $115.0 million, pre-tax, representing transaction expenses of the merger and projected costs of integrating the business operations of the companies. Of this charge, approximately $17.0 million represented investment banking, legal, accounting and other transaction costs of the merger, approximately $30.0 million related to the severance of key Fisher-Price executives, and the remainder represented estimated costs of integration and restructuring activities necessary to align the worldwide business operations of the combined company. This one-time charge recognized in the 1993 fourth quarter was $90.4 million, net of related taxes, and reduced earnings per share for the year by $0.53 per share and $0.50 per share on a primary and fully diluted basis, respectively. Although no assurance can be given, the Company anticipates its integration and restructuring activities will provide cost savings of approximately $45.0 million during 1994, principally as a result of consolidation of facilities and related staff reductions. Available cash reserves and cash flow generated from normal business operations will fund the costs of the integration and restructuring; no adverse impact is expected with respect to the Company's future liquidity or financial position. 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 1,627,007 (post-split basis) shares of Mattel common stock and 864,293 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, 1993, the Company had outstanding commitments for 1994 purchases of inventory of approximately $56.0 million. Licensing and similar agreements with terms extending through the year 2001 contain provisions for future guaranteed minimum payments aggregating approximately $310.0 million. Foreign Currency Contracts - -------------------------- The Company enters into foreign currency forward exchange contracts, swaps and options as hedges of inventory purchases, sales and various other intercompany transactions. At December 31, 1993, the Company and its foreign affiliates had outstanding forward exchange contracts totaling $256.0 million to acquire U.S. dollars and held forward contracts to purchase $219.4 million in foreign currencies. 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, 1993. The impact of inflation is minimized as a result of rapid turnover of inventories, and the Company has benefited from inflation with respect to repayment of fixed-rate liabilities during these periods. The U.S. Consumer Price Index increased 2.7% in 1993, 2.9% in 1992 and 3.1% in 1991. 31 Mattel, Inc. and Subsidiaries CONSOLIDATED BALANCE SHEETS ---------------------------

36 Mattel, Inc. and Subsidiaries NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS ------------------------------------------ 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"). Majority-owned subsidiaries are consolidated and less-than-majority-owned subsidiaries are accounted for by the equity method. 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 mergers, accounted for as poolings of interests, with Fisher-Price, Inc. consummated in November 1993 and International Games, Inc. consummated in February 1992. 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. The 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 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 ------------------ 1993 1992 - ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Land and buildings $37,208 $37,208 Machinery and equipment 1,001 1,001 ------- ------- 38,209 38,209 Less: Accumulated amortization 16,538 14,566 ------- ------- $21,671 $23,643 ======= =======
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 $55.4 million and $46.1 million as of December 31, 1993 and December 31, 1992, 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 37 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 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 3 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 split distributed in January 1994, the three- for-two stock split distributed in June 1992 and the five-for-four stock split distributed in November 1991. 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 preferred and 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 repurchases at the higher of end-of-period or average market prices. Fully diluted earnings represent reported income as 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 forward exchange contracts, swap agreements, and purchased currency options to hedge against foreign currency fluctuations. Realized and unrealized gains and losses resulting from foreign currency transactions are included in income currently, except that gains and losses on contracts which hedge specific foreign currency commitments are deferred and accounted for as part of the transaction. The Company does not speculate in foreign currencies. NOTE 2 - BUSINESS COMBINATIONS - ------------------------------ Fisher-Price, Inc. - ------------------ On November 30, 1993, a merger was consummated between the Company and Fisher-Price, Inc. ("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 approximately 39.1 million pre-split shares valued, on the merger's effective date, at $1.19 billion. This transaction has been accounted for as a pooling of interests, and accordingly, financial information for periods prior to the merger (from July 1, 1991 forward) 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. To effect the restatement, certain adjustments were necessary in order to conform the accounting practices of the two companies. Unamortized goodwill of $20.2 million related to The Quaker Oats Company's 1969 acquisition of Fisher-Price was written off, with the corresponding charge reflected in the 1991 beginning retained earnings balance for the combined company. The portion of Fisher-Price's inventories being accounted for under the LIFO method were retroactively restated to a FIFO-cost basis, resulting in a net credit to 1991's beginning retained earnings of $11.6 million. In addition, this change in accounting method resulted in reductions of $0.6 million and $0.4 million of Fisher-Price's previously reported net income for the six months ended December 29, 1991 and year ended January 3, 1993, respectively. In the first quarter of 1993, Fisher-Price adopted Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 106, "Employers' Accounting for Postretirement Benefits Other Than Pensions", by electing to amortize its unrecognized transition obligation over 20 years. To conform Fisher-Price's methodology to that of the Company, immediate recognition of the $29.4 million transition obligation was reflected in the combined consolidated financial statements, effective as of January 1, 1993. Prior to the merger, Fisher-Price's fiscal year for financial reporting purposes ended on the Sunday closest to the calendar year end; no adjustment to retained earnings in order to conform with the Company's December 31 year end was necessary. In addition, for periods preceding the merger, there were no intercompany transactions which required elimination from the combined consolidated results. 38 Selected information for the combining entities included in the Consolidated Results of Operations for the three years ending December 31, 1993 is as follows (in thousands):
For the Year ---------------------------------- 1993 1992 1991 (a) ---------------------------------- Net sales Mattel $1,996,766 $1,873,364 $1,670,932 Fisher-Price (b) 707,682 690,161 375,557 ---------- ---------- ---------- Combined $2,704,448 $2,563,525 $2,046,489 ========== ========== ========== Income before extraordinary item and cumulative effect of accounting changes Mattel (c) $ 181,083 $ 143,948 $ 122,395 Fisher-Price 45,228 40,893 11,643 Integration/restructuring charge (d) (90,400) - - ---------- ---------- ---------- Combined $ 135,911 $ 184,841 $ 134,038 ========== ========== ========== Extraordinary item - debt retirement Mattel $ - $ - $ (5,236) Fisher-Price (14,681) - - --------- ---------- ---------- Combined $ (14,681) $ - $ (5,236) ========= ========== ========== Cumulative effect of accounting changes Mattel (e) $ 14,590 $ - $ - Fisher-Price (f) (18,612) - - --------- ---------- ---------- Combined $ (4,022) $ - $ - ========= ========== ========== Net income Mattel (g) $ 195,673 $ 143,948 $ 117,159 Fisher-Price 11,935 40,893 11,643 Integration/restructuring charge (d) (90,400) - - --------- ---------- ---------- Combined $ 117,208 $ 184,841 $ 128,802 ========= ========== ========== (a) Financial information for Fisher-Price represents the six-month period from July 1, 1991 through December 29, 1991. Prior to July 1, 1991, the business of Fisher-Price was operated as a division of The Quaker Oats Company. (b) Certain amounts for 1992 and 1991 have been classified differently than previously published amounts in order to conform the accounting presentation of the two entities. (c) For 1993, primary and fully diluted earnings per share before accounting changes, the effects of the merger and extraordinary charges, but after adjustment for the five-for-four stock split, were $1.46 per share and $1.40 per share, respectively. (d) The integration and restructuring charge of $115.0 million, after related income tax effects, reduced earnings of the combined company by $90.4 million. (e) The net effect on earnings related to the January 1, 1993 adoption of SFAS Nos. 109 and 106 was an increase of $16.0 million and a a decrease of $1.4 million, net of taxes, respectively. (f) The effect on earnings, net of taxes of $10.7 million, related to the adoption of SFAS No. 106 effective January 1, 1993. (g) For 1993, primary and fully diluted net income per share, before the effects of the merger but after adjustment for the five-for-four stock split, were $1.58 per share and $1.51 per share, respectively.
In connection with the merger, the Company recognized a one-time charge of $115.0 million, pre-tax, representing transaction expenses of the merger and projected costs of integrating the business operations of the companies. Of this charge, approximately $17.0 million represented investment banking, legal, accounting and other transaction costs of the merger, and approximately $30.0 million related to the severance of key Fisher-Price executives. Of the remaining $68.0 million estimated for integration and restructuring costs, approximately $13.0 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. Net of related taxes, the one-time charge recognized in the 1993 fourth quarter was $90.4 million, which reduced earnings per share for the year by $0.53 per share and $0.50 per share on a primary and fully diluted basis, respectively. Although no assurance can be given, the Company anticipates its integration and restructuring activities will provide cost savings of approximately $45.0 million during 1994, principally as a result of consolidation of facilities and related staff reductions. Available cash reserves and cash flow generated from normal business operations will fund the costs of the integration and restructuring, with no adverse impact expected on the Company's future liquidity or financial position. Of the total integration and restructuring charge accrued, approximately $20.2 million had been expended as of December 31, 1993. International Games, Inc. - ------------------------- In the first quarter of 1992, the Company completed a merger transaction, also accounted for as a pooling of interests, with International Games, Inc. ("IGI"). The merger, valued at $58.5 million, was effected by the exchange of Mattel preference stock, Series F, and common stock for all outstanding shares of IGI voting preferred and common stock. Financial information for periods preceding the merger were retroactively restated to reflect the combined operations of the companies. 39 NOTE 3 - INCOME TAXES - --------------------- Consolidated pretax income before extraordinary item and cumulative effect of changes in accounting principles consists of the following (in thousands):

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 $0.09 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. Deferred income taxes are provided principally for certain reserves, depreciation, employee compensation-related expenses and certain other expenses that are recognized in different years for financial statement and income tax purposes. The Company's deferred income tax assets (liabilities) were comprised of the following (in thousands):
December 31, January 1, 1993 1993 ------------------------- Deferred compensation $ 17,035 $ 10,729 Sales allowances and inventory reserves 41,225 38,754 Operating loss and tax credit carryovers 68,774 104,798 Excess of tax basis over book basis 6,261 2,641 Postretirement benefits 12,210 11,645 Integration and restructuring charge 21,667 - Loss on debt retirement 8,845 - Other 22,271 16,927 ---------- --------- Gross deferred income tax assets 198,288 185,494 ---------- --------- Excess of book basis over tax basis (8,986) (11,959) Depreciation (2,753) (6,715) Retirement benefits (4,781) (4,266) Other (15,005) (4,503) ---------- --------- Gross deferred income tax liabilities (31,525) (27,443) Deferred income tax asset valuation allowances (52,405) (73,733) ---------- --------- Net deferred income tax assets $ 114,358 $ 84,318 ========== =========
Differences between the provision for income tax expense at the United States federal statutory income tax rate and the provision in the Consolidated Results of Operations were as follows (in thousands):

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 $322.3 million at December 31, 1993. 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 $15.4 million would be due upon remittance of these earnings. 40 The Company has foreign tax credit carryforwards for tax purposes at December 31, 1993 of approximately $26.4 million which expire in 1994. The Company also has an alternative minimum tax credit carryforward of $11.9 million with no expiration date. Certain foreign subsidiaries have net operating loss carryforwards totaling approximately $43.8 million ($2.3 million with no expiration date; $41.5 million expiring 1994 to 1998). The foreign tax credit and alternative minimum tax credit carryforwards will be credited to additional paid-in capital when and if utilized, since they result from net operating loss carryforwards which originated prior to the 1987 quasi-reorganization. In addition, 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 1993, 1992 and 1991, nonqualified stock options exercised resulted in credits to additional paid-in capital totaling $4.3 million, $12.1 million and $6.8 million, respectively. Legislation enacted in August 1993 increased the U.S. corporate income tax rate from 34 percent to 35 percent, retroactive to January 1, 1993. The tax effect has been reflected in the calculation of the Company's net U.S. deferred income tax asset. The Internal Revenue Service has completed its examination of the Company's federal income tax returns through January 28, 1984. NOTE 4 - 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 $10.0 million, $9.5 million and $6.8 million in 1993, 1992 and 1991, respectively. Before the merger, Fisher-Price maintained a number of benefit plans and compensation arrangements. 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 its 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 1993, 1992 or 1991. 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 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, 1993 and January 3, 1993 and for the six months ended December 29, 1991, are detailed below (in thousands):

Under these defined contribution plans, the Company makes contributions to a trust based upon specified percentages of employee compensation, as well as matching 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 merger. The Company maintains an unfunded supplemental retirement plan which is an unqualified defined benefit plan 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 1993, 1992 and 1991, the accumulated and vested benefit obligations and related expense of these plans were not significant. The Fisher-Price Profit Sharing and Retirement Savings Plan is maintained for the benefit of certain domestic employees. Effective in 1991, the plan was amended to discontinue further company contributions; however, participant accounts continue to be held pursuant to the plan's provisions. Employee Stock Ownership Plan - ----------------------------- In January 1987, an employee stock ownership plan (the "ESOP") 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 are paid by the Company in amounts sufficient for the plan to meet its current obligations. Payments to the ESOP for the years ended December 31, 1993 and December 31, 1992 were as follows (in thousands):
For the Year ----------------- 1993 1992 ----------------- Dividends on stock held by ESOP $4,900 $4,830 Company contribution to ESOP 20 90 ------ ------ 4,920 4,920 Interest on ESOP indebtedness 189 388 ------ ------ Total payments to ESOP $5,109 $5,308 ====== ======
In connection with the February 1992 merger, IGI convertible preferred stock held by the ESOP was exchanged for 35,723 shares of the Company's common stock and 864,293 shares of the Company's 12.5% Convertible Preference Stock, Series F. The Company must maintain the ESOP until August 1994 when the ESOP indebtedness will be paid in full, but shall terminate the ESOP no later than December 31, 2000. Postretirement Benefits - ----------------------- The Company maintains an unfunded 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 B premiums for current retirees as of July 1, 1993; the plan provides no reimbursement for employees retiring subsequent to that date. 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 (based upon a discount rate of 8.0%, which was adjusted to 7.0% as of year end). 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 an unfunded 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, for their lifetime, participation 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, up to a maximum of 25 years of service. 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. 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 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. Details of the plan's accumulated benefit obligation and related expense 42 recognized in the consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 1993 are as follows (in thousands):
Accumulated postretirement benefit obligation: - ---------------------------------------------- Retirees $19,367 Fully eligible active employees 4,359 Other active employees 5,631 ------- $29,357 ======= Postretirement benefit cost: - ---------------------------- Service cost $ 475 Interest cost 1,999 ------- Periodic postretirement benefit cost 2,474 Recognition of transition obligation 29,357 ------- $31,831 =======
In determining the $29.4 million transition obligation, a weighted- average discount rate of 7.0% was used. For participants below 65 years of age, the health care cost trend rate for expected claim costs was assumed to be 13.0% in 1993, declining to 5.5% 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 10.0% in 1993, declining to 5.5% 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 1993 by approximately $0.3 million and increased the accumulated postretirement benefit obligation as of December 31, 1993 by approximately $2.0 million. Incentive Awards - ---------------- The Company's Long-Term Incentive Plan is a variable compensation plan available to certain key executives of Mattel, Inc. Awards are determined 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 SAR were converted into awards consisting of nonqualified stock options and cash, which amount is payable within the five-year period as established under the SAR program. At December 31, 1993 and 1992, $13.6 million and $1.8 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 Board of Directors. At December 31, 1993 and 1992, $22.4 million and $17.2 million, respectively, were accrued for awards under these plans. NOTE 5 - SEASONAL FINANCING AND LONG-TERM DEBT - ---------------------------------------------- Seasonal Financing - ------------------ The Company maintains and periodically revises 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 foreign operations. The agreement in effect during 1993, which was recently renegotiated (see below), was amended in the first quarter of 1993 to increase the total facility to $350.0 million from $250.0 million. Within the total facility, up to $175.0 million was a standard revolving credit line available for either advances or letters of credit in support of commercial paper issuances. Interest was charged at alternate rates selected by the Company not greater than the prime rate charged by the agent bank, plus a commitment fee of 3/8 of one percent of the unused line available for advances and 1/2 of one percent of the amount utilized for standby letters of credit. The remaining $175.0 million was available for nonrecourse purchases of certain trade accounts receivable of the Company by the commercial bank group providing the credit line. During 1993, proceeds of $165.0 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 ratios and to maintain certain levels of income. 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. Foreign credit lines total approximately $170.0 million, a portion of which is used to support letters of credit. The Company expects to extend these credit lines throughout 1994 and believes available amounts will be adequate to meet its seasonal financing requirements. During 1993, Fisher-Price had available domestic and foreign 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 foreign credit lines will be terminated and its foreign operations will be 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 foreign credit lines is summarized as follows (in thousands):
For the Year ------------------------------ 1993 1992 1991 ------------------------------ Balance at end of year Domestic $ - $ - $ - Foreign - 13,400 29,700 Maximum amount outstanding Domestic 167,000 258,800 277,100 Foreign 76,100 264,700 180,700 Average borrowing Domestic 45,100 114,300 107,600 Foreign 55,100 156,300 101,800 Weighted average interest rate on average borrowing, computed monthly Domestic 3.5% 4.4% 6.3% Foreign 8.5% 11.2% 12.5%
43 Effective in March 1994, the Company renegotiated its revolving credit agreement. The new agreement consists of unsecured facilities providing a total of $500.0 million in seasonal financing from the same group of commercial banks. The facilities provide for up to $250.0 million in advances and backup for commercial paper issuances ($125.0 million of which is a 364-day facility and the other $125.0 million is a 3-year facility), and up to an additional $250.0 million (a 3-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. Fisher-Price Term Loan - ---------------------- The current portion of long-term liabilities as of December 31, 1993 includes $100.0 million of term indebtedness to insurance companies. The debt required quarterly interest payments at a rate of 10.69% per annum, and had a final maturity date of June 30, 2000. 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 $0.08 per fully diluted share. At December 31, 1992, the $98.5 million obligation outstanding, net of unamortized discounts, was included in term loans. In connection with this debt agreement, 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 1,173,507 common shares (post-merger, post-split basis). As of the effective date of the merger, the Company agreed to assume Fisher-Price's obligations pursuant to the provisions of the warrants. The exercise of all outstanding warrants by the holders would result in delivery of approximately 1,075,880 shares of the Company's common stock at an exercise price of $7.45555 per share, after adjustment for the merger and five-for-four stock split. In addition, change-of-control provisions of the warrants allow 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. The Company has not received notification from holders as to their intentions with respect to exercise of the warrants. ESOP Refinancing Notes Payable ("ESOP Notes") - --------------------------------------------- As of December 31, 1993, the current portion of long-term liabilities includes the remaining ESOP Notes of $3.5 million. The ESOP Notes, which are supported by letters of credit, are scheduled to mature in August 1994. The interest rate charged as of December 31, 1993 was 3.1%, representing 94.25% of LIBOR. Because the interest rate is adjusted monthly, the carrying amount of this obligation approximates its fair value. 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. Bid prices for each $1,000.00 par value of the 6-7/8% Senior Notes, as provided by one of the underwriters, were $1,041.80 and $975.02 as of December 31, 1993 and 1992, respectively. 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, commencing on November 15, 1993. 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, 1993, the bid price for the 6-3/4% Senior Notes, as provided by one of the underwriters, was $1,025.32 based on a par value of $1,000.00. 8% Convertible Subordinated Debentures ("8% Debentures") - -------------------------------------------------------- In March 1991, the Company issued $100.0 million aggregate principal amount of 8% Debentures, with a maturity date of March 15, 2001 and semiannual interest payments due on each March 15 and September 15. Proceeds from this issuance were used to redeem $62.5 million of preferred stock issued by a financing subsidiary and for general corporate purposes. The quoted prices provided by underwriters for the 8% Debentures as of December 31, 1993 and 1992 were $1,722.50 and $1,695.00, respectively, based on a par value of $1,000.00. The terms of the 8% Debentures provide for early redemption at the option of the Company at anytime on or after March 15, 1994. On February 9, 1994, the Company issued its Notice of Redemption to the holders. The redemption price is 104.571% of the principal amount, together with interest accrued to March 15, 1994, the final interest payment date. In lieu of redemption, holders may elect to convert the 8% Debentures into the Company's common stock at an conversion price of $12.83 per share. During the 1993 fourth quarter, holders tendered $24.3 million par value of the 8% Debentures for conversion into common shares. 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 $53.0 million and $54.0 million at December 31, 1993 and 1992, respectively. 44 Term Loans - ---------- Term loans include foreign term loans and, as of December 31, 1992, the Fisher-Price long-term loan and the ESOP Notes. Foreign term loans primarily consist of an Indonesian loan of $6.0 million, secured by local assets and guaranteed by the Company. The loan, which matures in 1997, bears interest at the lending bank's short-term rate plus 1-3/4 percent. Other foreign borrowings include $1.1 million of unsecured Malaysian export financing revolving on a long-term basis under an open- ended term, bearing interest at 6.0%. The interest rates on foreign term borrowings are adjusted periodically, thus the carrying amount is a reasonable estimate of fair value. Scheduled Maturities - -------------------- The aggregate amounts of long-term debt and capitalized lease obligations maturing in the next five years are as follows (in thousands):
Senior and Capitalized Subordinated Mortgage Term Lease Year Debt Note Loans Obligations Total - ---------------------------------------------------------------- 1994 $ 75,700 $ - $107,900 $ 200 $183,800 1995 - - 2,600 200 2,800 1996 - 400 2,100 2,400 4,900 1997 100,000 500 600 100 101,200 1998 - 500 - 100 600
14-3/4% Subordinated Debentures - ------------------------------- In July 1991, the Company redeemed its 14-3/4% Subordinated Debentures with a remaining principal amount of $99.1 million at 105.9% of par. The write-off of unamortized discount associated with the debt together with the early redemption premium resulted in an extraordinary charge of $4.5 million, net of an income tax benefit of $2.6 million. Preferred Stock of Financing Subsidiary - --------------------------------------- In May 1991, a financing subsidiary of the Company exercised its option to redeem $62.5 million of its variable rate, asset-backed preferred stock held by unrelated investors. The write-off of unamortized issuance costs resulted in an extraordinary charge of $0.7 million. NOTE 6 - 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 3,000,000 shares of $1.00 par value preferred stock and 20,000,000 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, 1,500,000 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, 864,293 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 one and seven-eighths shares of Mattel common stock at any time up to 30 days after repayment of the ESOP note receivable, and into .683316 shares of common stock thereafter. The aggregate liquidation preference of the Series F shares as of December 31, 1993 was $30.3 million, or $39.056 per share reduced by the per share effect of ESOP debt outstanding. Common Stock - ------------ Concurrently with their approval of the Fisher-Price merger, shareholders of the Company voted to amend the Mattel, Inc. certificate of incorporation to increase the number of common shares authorized from 150,000,000 to 300,000,000 shares in order to accommodate issuance of common stock pursuant to the Fisher-Price merger, potential conversions of the 8% Debentures, future stock splits and for future awards pursuant to the Company's stock option plans. 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, 1993 and 1992 a total of 12,417,405 shares and 4,184,378 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 1993, restricted stock awards granted to Mattel executives totaled 593,750 shares. The market value of these shares as of the date of grant is reflected as deferred compensation in shareholders' equity, and is being amortized over the restriction period which lapses on January 1, 1997. 45 The following is a summary of stock option information for the Company's plans during the year:
Options Outstanding ------------------------------- Nonqualified Plans Number (a) Price (a) - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Outstanding at December 31, 1991 6,925,865 $ 2.77 to $12.90 Granted 2,045,324 11.33 to 19.60 Exercised (1,939,523) 2.77 to 10.99 Canceled (260,399) 3.63 to 17.67 ---------- Outstanding at December 31, 1992 6,771,267 2.77 to 19.60 Granted 4,833,781 12.20 to 23.90 Exercised (1,063,433) 2.77 to 19.60 Canceled (547,723) 3.63 to 19.60 ---------- Outstanding at December 31, 1993 9,993,892 2.77 to 23.90 ========== Options exercisable at: December 31, 1992 (b) 1,531,457 December 31, 1993 (c) 4,218,697 (a) Number of options and prices reflect the retroactive effect of the Fisher-Price merger, a five-for-four stock split distributed in January 1994 and a three-for-two stock split distributed in June 1992. (b) Average exercise price - $9.22 per share. Expiration dates vary from July 12, 1994 to July 20, 2002. (c) Average exercise price - $14.03 per share. Expiration dates vary from July 12, 1994 to December 15, 2003.
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 a one-time increase of 3,000,000 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 merger exchange ratio, of Mattel common stock. Accordingly, 300,547 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. 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 up to 10 million shares over the next four years. During 1993 and 1992, the Company purchased 2,080,000 and 1,436,000 shares, respectively. At the time of the five-for-four stock split in 1993 and the three-for-two stock split in 1992, the number of treasury shares was increased as a result of the splits by 520,194 shares and 582,661 shares, respectively. Shares repurchased, less 2,213,949 shares reissued in 1993 and 532,377 shares reissued in 1992, are included in treasury stock. Common Stock Warrants - $6.25 Series - ------------------------------------ Warrants to purchase 1,000,000 shares of the Company's common stock at $6.25 per share were exercisable until their July 13, 1991 expiration date; 910,000 warrants were exercised and 90,000 were repurchased from the holders. These share data do not reflect adjustment for the common stock splits, all of which occurred after the warrants' expiration date. Dividends and Capital Transactions - ---------------------------------- On November 30, 1993, the Board of Directors declared a five-for-four stock split on the Company's common stock, distributable on January 7, 1994 to shareholders of record as of December 17, 1993. Accordingly, $34.3 million was transferred from additional paid-in capital to common stock, representing the par value for additional shares issued, including the effect of the split on shares issued pursuant to the Fisher-Price merger. Similar transfers were made between paid-in capital and common stock in the amounts of $48.0 million and $17.7 million to reflect the respective declarations of a three-for-two stock split in May 1992 and a five-for-four stock split in October 1991. 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. NOTE 7 - COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES - -------------------------------------- Leases - ------ The Company routinely enters into noncancellable 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, 1993 (in thousands):
Capitalized Leases Operating Leases ------------------ ---------------- 1994 $ 800 $ 29,000 1995 900 26,300 1996 3,100 21,400 1997 400 14,700 1998 400 13,500 Thereafter 11,400 25,100 ------- -------- 17,000 (a) 130,000 Less: Sublease commitments 1,000 400 ------- -------- $16,000 $129,600 ======= ======== (a) Includes $11.7 million of imputed interest.
Rental expense under operating leases amounted to $33.8 million, $32.1 million and $21.3 million for 1993, 1992 and 1991, respectively, net of sublease income of $0.4 million, $2.8 million and $1.6 million. 46 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 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, by retaining flexibility with respect to currencies used for international borrowing arrangements and in the invoicing of transactions between international affiliates, and by varying the degree of coverage of individual foreign currency exposures, which may alternatively be left open, partially or fully hedged. 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, 1993, the Company had outstanding commitments for 1994 purchases of inventory of approximately $56.0 million. As of December 31, 1992, the Company had commitments for 1993 purchases of inventory of approximately $64.0 million. The licensing and related agreements provide for terms extending from 1994 through 2001 and contain provisions for future minimum payments as shown in the following table (in thousands):
Minimum Payments -------- 1994 $ 37,000 1995 37,000 1996 36,000 1997 38,000 1998 38,000 Thereafter 124,000 -------- $310,000 ========
Royalty expense for the years ended December 31, 1993, 1992 and 1991 was $69.2 million, $50.2 million and $38.8 million, respectively, with increases in 1993 and 1992 attributable principally to the Disney license. Foreign Currency Contracts - -------------------------- The Company enters into foreign currency forward exchange contracts, swaps and options as hedges of inventory purchases, sales and various other intercompany transactions. At December 31, 1993, the Company and its foreign affiliates had outstanding forward contracts to purchase U.S. dollars and to sell Canadian, British and other European currencies to obtain U.S. dollars totaling $256.0 million in 1994. These contracts hedge $202.8 million of future inventory purchases and $53.2 million of intercompany borrowing and other intercompany transactions. Based on broker quotes, if the Company had entered into contracts involving the same currencies and maturity dates on December 31, 1993, it would have received $248.0 million in 1994. At December 31, 1992, the Company and its foreign affiliates had outstanding forward contracts totaling $273.0 million to purchase U.S. dollars and to sell Italian, British, French, Japanese, Australian and Canadian currencies to obtain U.S. dollars. If acquired on December 31, 1992, contracts for the same currencies and maturity dates would have totaled $258.6 million, based on broker quotes. At December 31, 1993, the Company held forward contracts to purchase $219.4 million in German, Malaysian, Italian, Hong Kong and other currencies. The contracts, which expire on various dates during 1994, hedge $127.6 million of future sales and $91.8 million of intercompany borrowings. Based on broker quotes, contracts for the same currencies and maturity dates would have purchased the equivalent of $222.7 million at 1993 year-end rates. At December 31, 1992, the Company held forward contracts to purchase $153.4 million in British, Hong Kong, Malaysian, Belgian and German currencies. Based on broker quotes, contracts for the same currencies and maturity dates acquired on December 31, 1992 would be worth the equivalent of $159.0 million at 1992 year-end rates. As of December 31, 1992, Fisher-Price held forward currency options involving British and Canadian currencies in the amount of $35.2 million. The options, which hedged 47 future transactions and expired within twelve months, were purchased at a cost of $0.5 million and were valued at $1.5 million, based on broker quotes, as of December 31, 1992. Letters of Credit - ----------------- The Company had outstanding irrevocable letters of credit in the amount of $31.8 million and $22.5 million as of December 31, 1993 and 1992, 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 is estimated to be the same as the 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 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 foreign operations are located principally in Europe, Canada, Latin America and the Far East. Consolidated liabilities of these subsidiaries were approximately $300.4 million, $311.3 million and $342.5 million at December 31, 1993, 1992 and 1991, 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 Australia, Austria, the Benelux countries, Canada, Chile, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Scandinavia, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and in certain areas of Eastern Europe and Asia. In addition to direct sales, the Company's products are marketed principally through distributors in Central and South America, the Middle East and Southeast Asia. In 1994, the Company will begin selling its products directly in Argentina, Portugal and Venezuela through newly established offices. The Company also licenses some of its products to other manufacturers for sale in Brazil 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 1993 consolidated net sales, were $598.7 million and $277.3 million, respectively. At December 31, 1993, accounts receivable from Toys R Us and Wal-Mart were $156.8 million and $63.2 million, respectively. In 1992 and 1991, worldwide sales to Toy R Us, the only customer accounting for more than 10% of consolidated net sales, were $466.4 million and $289.9 million, respectively. At December 31, 1992, accounts receivable from Toys R Us and Wal-Mart were $114.4 million and $69.6 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.

Statement of Cash Flows - ----------------------- For the years ended December 31, 1993, 1992 and 1991, cash paid for interest totaled $76.1 million, $67.8 million and $62.1 million, respectively. Cash paid for incomes taxes in each of the three years was $55.7 million, $72.5 million and $52.5 million, respectively. Significant noncash investing, financing and operating activities during 1993 were as follows: - The November 1993 merger with Fisher-Price in a stock-for- stock transaction neither used nor provided cash (see Note 2). 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. - Conversions by holders of $24.3 million aggregate par value of the 8% Debentures during the 1993 fourth quarter resulted in the issuance of 1,896,580 shares (post-split basis) of the Company's common stock from its treasury. - 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. NOTE 11 - NEW ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS - --------------------------------------- Postemployment Benefits - ----------------------- Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 112, "Employers' Accounting for Postemployment Benefits", is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 1993. This statement addresses the treatment of costs related to postemployment plans not already accounted for under SFAS Nos. 87 or 106, and requires that employers who provide benefits to former or inactive employees after employment, but before retirement, account for such costs on an accrual basis rather than as expenditures are made. The Company's practice has been to accrue its obligation for such benefits when circumstances indicate it is probable a liability has been incurred and the amount or range of amounts are reasonably estimable. Therefore, there will be no effect on the Company's financial position and results of operations as a result of this pronouncement. Charitable Contributions - ------------------------ Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 116, "Accounting for Contributions Received and Contributions Made", was issued in June 1993. The statement, which is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 1994, provides that contributions received or made, including unconditional promises for such gifts, be recognized in the periods received or made at their fair values. The Company supports the Mattel Foundation with annual cash contributions which currently are accrued monthly in the year of the pledge. Thus, the statement will have no effect on the Company's results of operations or amount of expense recognized in any year, only the timing of recognition with respect to interim periods. 50 Mattel, Inc. and Subsidiaries 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, are retained to audit the Company's consolidated financial statements. Their report on their audits of the accompanying financial statements is shown herein. This report states that the audits were made in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards. These standards do not include a study and evaluation of internal control for the purpose of expressing an opinion thereon but do include a study and evaluation for the purpose of establishing a basis for reliance thereon relative to the scope of their audits of these consolidated financial statements. /s/ Michael G. McCafferty - ------------------------- Michael G. McCafferty Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Mattel, Inc. and Subsidiaries REPORT OF INDEPENDENT ACCOUNTANTS --------------------------------- To the Board of Directors and Shareholders of Mattel, Inc. In our opinion, based upon our audits and the reports of other auditors, the accompanying consolidated balance sheets and the related consolidated statements of operations, 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, 1993 and 1992, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended December 31, 1993, 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 and 1991 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 and $372,994,000 for the periods ended January 3, 1993 and December 29, 1991, respectively. Those statements were audited by other auditors whose reports thereon have 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 reports 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 reports of other auditors provide a reasonable basis for the opinion expressed above. As discussed in Notes 3 and 4 to the Consolidated Financial Statements, the Company changed its method of accounting for income taxes and for postretirement benefits other than pensions in 1993. /s/ Price Waterhouse - -------------------- Los Angeles, California February 8, 1994 51 Mattel, Inc. and Subsidiaries DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS ----------------------
