Welcome to MV Sports 2015

2014 was another great year for MV. With double digit growth in both sales
to customers and sales out at retail, our range of wheeled and outdoor
toys continues to be in high demand. Underpinned by a combination of
strong brands and sector leading licenses, we are confident that 2015 will
be another strong year.

All of our major own brand propositions enjoyed impressive growth last
year exemplified by sales of our brand of Hedstrom swings, slides and
multi-plays. With several key introductions for Spring/Summer 2015,
Hedstrom will continue to be the leading brand in quality metal outdoor
play equipment.

                                          Our extreme wheeled brand Stunted also experienced impressive growth,
                                          taking share from the competition. Backed by year round TV promotion
                                          and the launch of several new models, we expect Stunted to reach new
                                          heights in 2015.

                                          Kickmaster is an established brand and is well respected by retailers and
                                          consumers alike. Many successful professional footballers affectionately
                                          remember using Kickmaster products to hone their early football skills;
                                          and 2015 sees the return of the original Close Control Trainer refreshed
                                          and updated for a new generation of players. Off the back of strong sales
                                          in 2014 and our TV brand campaign we also have some innovative new
                                          product ideas which will be showcased at Olympia.

Our licensed wheeled toy ranges had a great year with Thomas & Friends,
Peppa Pig, One Direction and Batman performing exceptionally well.

We are very excited to have agreed a major licensing deal with The Walt
Disney Company to represent several of its key brands in the wheeled toy
sector; namely Disney Princess, Disney Cars, Disney Planes, Star Wars
and Avengers all of which will cement our position as market leader in
licensed wheeled toys.

In addition to the above new licenses we are also pleased to be working
on several more classic and brand new properties which will be launching
in the second half of the year notably, Thunderbirds are Go, The
Clangers, Teletubbies, In the Night Garden and World Of Warriors.

Sincere thanks go to our valued customers, suppliers, licensors and
hard working employees for helping to deliver strong growth in 2014.

Here’s to a successful 2015!
