    If you missed the March 2018 Monthly Mini Model Build, the instructions are now available. Last month’s LEGO build was a mini LEGO Goat. You can use your own pieces or pick up pieces at the Pick a Brick Wall at your local LEGO Brand Retail Store or at LEGO Shop at Home (US | Canada | UK).

    While the parent company Toys R Us America is going through liquidation, Toys R Us Canada has received multiple non-binding bids on the Canadian operations and its 82 stores as reported on Financial Post. This is definitely good news. One of the bidders is MGA Entertainment (producer of Bratz dolls and Little Tikes). Toys R Us Canada has strong leadership and enough cash to continue paying its vendors.

    Toys R Us is hoping that they are able to secure a buyer that will take up not only the Toys R Us Canada network of 82 stores, but also the top 200 performing stores in America. The whole process is being speeded up where the auction will be held on March 29 and the closing will occur at the latest by April 16. If all goes well, we may still have Toys R Us stores on both sides of the border.

    The LEGO Group 2017 Annual Results are now out. Unfortunately for last year, LEGO’s revenue declined which also resulted in 1400 employees being laid off. LEGO made some restructuring as well as reducing the size of the organization. You can see the full press release here.

    -Revenue: 34,995 mDKK (~5800 USD million)
    -Expenses: 24,636 mDKK (~4083 USD million)
    -Operating Profit: 10,359 mDKK (~1717 USD million)
    -Net Profit: 7,806 (~1294 USD million)

    BILLUND, March 6, 2018: The LEGO Group today released its full year financial results for 2017, reporting a decline in revenue and operating profit.

    • Revenue for the full year decreased by 8 percent to DKK 35.0 billion compared with DKK 37.9 billion in 2016. Excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange, revenue for the full year declined 7 percent compared with 2016.
    • Operating profit (profit before financial items and tax) for 2017 was DKK 10.4 billion compared with DKK 12.4 billion for 2016, a decrease of 17 percent year on year.

    • Cash flow from operating activities for the year was DKK 10.7 billion compared with DKK 9.1 billion in 2016.
    • Decline in revenue was driven in part by clean-up of inventories across the value chain. Global consumer sales were flat and trended upwards in the final months of 2017.
