25 March 2015: The Board of Directors of Mondo TV S.p.A. – holding company of a Group working in the production and distribution of cartoons for TV and the cinema–approved the draft financial statements and the consolidated financial statements for 2014.
 
Consolidated results
Respect to the last financial year, the revenues increase, equal to EUR 4.9 million in absolute value and to 56% in percentage, was determined by the start of the productions with Preziosi group, and the important orders portfolio relating to the international productions (mainly in Asia, United States and Arab Emirates), which amount to USD 23 million, and which was acquired by Mondo TV Suisse S.A..
An important increase of licenses has also been recorded with an increase of 18% compared to the preceding year..
The group operated in 2014 in a stagnation environment, both in Italy and Europe; in this scenario, the sale strategy of the group was successful, as it focused on the penetration of those markets not affected by the economic crisis like Arab Emirates, China and Asia..
The circumstance that many operators in the animation market have gone has allowed the group to acquire new clients as an effect of the lower competition.
 
Capitalized costs relating to the produced series are equal to EUR 4.6 million in 2014, respect to Eur 3.7 million in 2013, and mainly relate to Mondo TV France S.A. and, for a minority portion, the Holding company.
 
Operating costs increase of EUR 1.7 million respect to 2013; such increase is determined by higher production costs for EUR 2.5 million due to the larger number of productions acquired and worked out in the period. General costs have decreased as an effect of the cost reduction policy started in the preceding year.
 
EBITDA is significantly increasing, more than doubled compared to the preceding year; the increase is equal to EUR 4,1 million in absolute terms, and to 117% in percentage terms respect to 2013; the result is the effect of the increase of the operating costs.
 
Amortization, depreciation and provisions were Euros 5.3 respect to EUR 15.7 million in 2013, with a decrease of EUR 10.4 million; in 2013, an important impairment was made on the library which reduced the net book value of the library, and thus the amortization which are allocated to the income statement; the effect is shown already in 2014, and will continue in the next years.
In the light of the above, operating result is positive for EUR 2.2 million, compared to a negative result for EUR 12.2 million in 2013.
 
Net financial charges are equal to EUR 0,4 million, substantially unvaried compared to 2013. Advanced taxes were recorded for EUR 0.8 million, compared to EUR 5.6 million in 2013.
 
Activities for advanced taxes were recorded in the limits in which they are deemed to be recoupable based on the ten years business plan of the parent company
 
The consolidated FNP improved and passed from EUR 3.6 million as of 31 December 2013 to EUR 3.45 million as of 31 December 2014.
 
The internationalization of the group continued and 67% of the revenues were made abroad.
 
Results of the parent company
Respect to the last financial year, the revenues increase, equal to EUR 3.1 million in absolute value and to 56% in percentage, was determined by the start of the productions with Preziosi group, and the important orders portfolio relating to the international productions (mainly in Asia, United States and Arab Emirates), which amount to USD 23 million, and which was acquired by Mondo TV Suisse S.A..
 
As an effect of the above productions passed from EUR 0.5 million of revenues in the preceding year to EUR 3.6 million in the referenced year.
 
An increase of licenses has also been recorded with an increase of 6% compared to the preceding year.
 
Capitalized costs relating to the produced series are equal to EUR 0.9 million in 2014, respect to EUR 0.8 million in 2013.
 
Operating costs increase of EUR 1.4 million respect to 2013; such increase is determined by higher production costs for EUR 1.8 million due to the larger number of productions acquired and worked out in the period. General costs have decreased as an effect of the cost reduction policy started in the preceding year.
 
EBITDA is significantly increasing, more than doubled compared to the preceding year; the increase is equal to EUR 2.4 million in absolute terms, and to 176% in percentage terms respect to 2013; the result is the effect of the increase of the operating costs.
 
Amortization, depreciation and provisions were Euros 1.9 respect to EUR 13.8 million in 2013, with a decrease of EUR 11.9 million; in 2013, an important impairment was made on the library which reduced the net book value of the library, and thus the amortization which are allocated to the income statement; the effect is shown already in 2014, and will continue in the next years.
 
In the light of the above, operating result is positive for EUR 1.9 million, compared to a negative result for EUR 12.4 million in 2013.

* * * * *

Business Outlook
The Company is implementing the business plan approved on March 25, 2014 through the acquisition of new productions which are oriented to the licensing and the internationalization of the group.
To this purpose, the setting up of Mondo TV Suisse is functional to this strategy, since this company is focusing on the international productions coming from its recent portfolio orders equal to around USD 23 million, and which will be listed to AIM Italia, likely in the first semester 2015.

Rome, 17 March 2015: Today the shareholders meeting of Mondo TV S.p.A. took the decisions required to make available the share premium reserve for the distribution in kind of a portion of the same reserve through the assignment of a number of shares representing 18,87% of Mondo TV Suisse S.A.

The regulation of AIM Italia provides a minimum lot for the negotiation of the quoted shares in this listing, therefore the assignees should get a number of shares unnecessarily equal to the minimum lot or to its multiple (so called odd lot); in this case the assignees should get difficulties to disinvest the odd lots.
 
The distribution is aimed at allowing a sufficient diffusion of the shares of the Controlled Company in the process for its admission to AIM Italia as announced on February 6, 2015 (the “Admission Process”).
 
The shares shall be assigned at a value of Euros 2,6 each for a global distributed value of Euros 4.907.340 utilizing a portion of the share premium reserve.
 
Subject to Mondo TV Suisse being admitted to AIM Italia, the voucher representing the free assigned shares will be likely issued in the second quarter 2015. The exact date shall be communicated by a subsequent notice which will be published on the websites of Mondo TV S.p.A. and Borsa Italiana S.p.A., as well as on a national newspaper.

Shareholder of Mondo Tv S.p.A. Number of shares Percentage

 

 

Mondo Tv 8.077.512 80,78%
Orlando Corradi 780.924 7,81%
Yin Wei 188.744 1,89%
Kabouter Management LLC 88.087 0,88%
Managers 35.000 0,35%

Total 10.000.000 100,00%

 
It is confirmed that in the transaction, Mondo TV S.p.A. is assisted by Banca Finnat Euramerica S.p.A. as advisor.
 
As already communicated on February 6, 2015, the transaction should offer the possibility of: i) giving value to the participation of Mondo TV Suisse, creating value also for the shareholders; ii) giving to Mondo TV Suisse a higher standing for attracting new commissions; iii) making easier, in the mid term, the entering of new institutional and/or industrial partners, or in any case making easier the recourse to forms of capitalization for getting new resources where needed to finance possible future extraordinary plans, at present non predictable. The choice of AIM Italia is grounded on the circumstance that it is the market of Borsa Italiana devoted to the Italian small and medium enterprises, which wish to invest in their growth; it offers to small and medium companies the possibility to access in an efficient manner a selected public of investors focused on small caps and is conceived for offering a faster and more flexible procedure to listing. On ground of such characteristics, such market is considered as the most adequate environment to properly value Mondo TV Suisse since the company’s profile appears ideal for such market.
 
It is hereby eventually confirmed that a more deepen analysis of Mondo TV Suisse will be made available through the admission document which will be drafted and published in accordance with the rules of the AIM Italia regulations.
