Mondo TV posted a strong Q3 performance, with production value for 9M21 up 32% on the prior year and EBIT ahead by 20%. Encouragingly, the progress is across several key properties. A further 13 episodes of Disco Dragon were delivered by Mondo France in Q3, while Grisù, Agent 203 and Meteoheroes all continue to perform strongly. Properties in earlier stages of development are also building traction. The group is on track to meet its business plan projections and our forecasts are unchanged. The
Mondo TV’s interims show a big step up in production value to €17.5m at end June (+36% y-o-y), with delivery of 26 episodes of Disco Dragon from Mondo TV France a large element. The regular stream of newsflow of sales and licensing agreements continued through H1, underpinning forecast progress for FY22. The newer deals give a broader international reach, reducing the weighting of Asia in the mix. The €10.5m funding from Atlas Special Opportunities has secured the balance sheet, allowing for the
Mondo TV Group has had a strong start to the year, with continuing deals on its key properties, including MeteoHeroes, Grisù and Agent 203. New contracts include a first to develop, produce and distribute a video game based on MeteoHeroes for Sony from the group’s upgraded studio subsidiary in the Canary Islands. The funding round from Atlas, completed in Q121, has put the group on a sound financial footing. With its extensive library and a strong front list, Mondo TV is in a good position to be
Mondo TV produced good FY20 results, with production value up by 14% to €30.4m and an uptick in EBITDA margin (on production value) from 61.4% to 61.8%. The strengthening of the balance sheet through Atlas’s capital injection (the €10.5m bond conversion is now complete) has given the group the resource to invest in its Toon2Tango JV and in the development of its own 3D CGI animation studio in Gran Canaria. The dispute with the tax authorities is now resolved. With robust global content demand an
Mondo TV has settled its outstanding tax disputes in respect of FY12 and FY14. While it maintains that the conversion of deferred tax assets into tax credits was implemented correctly, the potential for further disputes with respect to similar procedures carried out in other years makes this a sensible and pragmatic resolution. The potential risk from the claims in full in respect of 2012–19 was up to €30.8m, plus legal costs. With penalties and interest, the total payment now agreed for 2012–19

Mondo TV continues to report production, distribution and licensing deals that will drive its future revenue and profits, supported by the €10.5m funding agreed with Atlas Special Opportunities. Q3 figures show broadly flat revenues for the year-to-date, with nine-month EBITDA margins up from 71.4% to 74.7%, reflecting reduced operating costs. We have pulled our full year revenue estimate back by 14% to reflect lower growth than we originally expected, translating to a reduction of just 4% at EB
Mondo TV has announced a succession of distribution and licensing deals through H120, covering a wide range of properties and geographies. To fund the necessary investment and to build its in-house capabilities for 3D CGI animation, it has agreed further funding of up to €10.5m with Atlas Special Opportunities in the form of convertible bonds. Global appetite for children’s TV content remains healthy, with animation benefiting from the reduced filming of live action, and we would expect the flow
Good traction on key properties, such as MeteoHeroes and BatPat 2, helped drive a 19% increase in production value for Q120 over the prior year, with an 8% uplift in EBIT to €1.9m. The Toon2Tango collaboration is already generating interesting properties and distribution opportunities. Global appetite for children’s TV content remains good, if anything strengthened by the impact of COVID-19. Mondo’s multi-territory operations allow production to continue without significant interruption. Our pr
Mondo TV’s Q3 results continued in the more positive vein established in H1, with the flow of new content and licensing agreements carrying through into Q4 across a good range of properties, including new titles in the German JV with Toon2Tango. In October, the group announced new licensing deals in Russia with Gazprom Media and PJSC MegaFon for the streaming of Mondo TV library content. These deals help rebalance group revenues, historically heavily biased to Asia. Management’s business plan fo
Mondo TV has returned to profit in the first half of FY19, on its rebased business model with a more concentrated portfolio. Financial performance is tracking to management’s plan and our only forecast changes reflect IFRS 16 adoption. Visibility through H219 and into FY20 on the production pipeline is improving. The streaming of YooHoo & Friends on Netflix raises the group’s profile and the Toon2Tango partnership opens more European opportunities. The shares are valued well below global content
Mondo TV’s Q119 figures are as flagged, tracking to its December 2018 business plan. Our revenue and earnings numbers are unchanged. YooHoo to the Rescue is now airing globally on Netflix, giving a strong start to management’s ambitions to broaden geographic revenue spread. The group has settled with three of the four Asian customers that withdrew in H218, but remains in dispute with one. It has also disclosed that it is subject to a further tax authority investigation, which it is confident wil
Mondo TV is set to focus its efforts on a smaller number of more profitable properties, following a difficult H218. The group’s geographic spread will also be readjusted – partly as a result of existing Asian clients scaling back their purchasing – giving a better balance between destination markets. The global market appetite for quality content remains strong with channel proliferation. On reduced forecast revenues, Mondo TV remains comfortably profitable, with net cash on the balance sheet, a
The 50% increase in net profit in FY17 was delivered to budget and forecasts. We maintain our forecast for a further 45% increase in EBITDA in FY18, underpinned by existing relationships and returning brands. As Mondo scales up, new opportunities are presenting themselves: a potential minority investment in a new theme park in China provides evidence of the group’s widening ambitions as its licensing business grows. The weakness in the share price this year leaves the company at a 40-50% discoun
Underpinned by its recently announced Netflix global deal for YooHoo and Friends, as well as a couple of major new productions for the Chinese market, Mondo has significantly increased net profit expectations over the next five years. We upgrade our forecast net profit by 4%, 40% and 44% for the three forecast years, respectively. FY18 P/E and EV/EBIT parity with peers could drive the shares up towards €9.0 per share.

Despite no further surprise in terms of the H2 capacity outlook, easyJet’s H1 trading update pleased the market with a better-than-expected pre-tax headline loss. It is worth highlighting the group’s more-than-robust pricing power, which is expected to largely offset the unhedged fuel costs and the recent activities disruptions/cancellations at UK airports.
