Company Overview

Business Description:
Funtastic Limited (FUN) is engaged in the wholesale and distribution of consumer branded lifestyle merchandise with products spanning all aspects of family life. FUN's products include children's toys, apparel & footwear, sporting goods, home ware, confectionery, educational toys & furniture, and DVD & theatrical distribution soft products. FUN operates three divisions namely, Funtastic Australia, Funtastic Brands, and Madman Entertainment. FUN has offices in Australasia, Hong Kong and China.

Strategy Analysis:
Since listing, FUN has grown organically through an increased number of new licensing relationships with major trademark and brand owners in its six divisions, as well as through the acquisition of complementary distributors. FUN is an increasingly dominant manager of children's brands in Australia. It is also looking to license proprietary product offshore. An example is FUN's patented baby stroller. It is critical FUN continues to provide customers, include the large department store retailers, with a compelling value proposition to ensure they do not source directly from licensors.

Nick Swales, Regional Director, Newcastle Office, Rathbones 27/10/2014 | “If you want to have a better performance than the crowd, you must do things differently from the crowd.” Sir John Templeton.

Aussie share market bulls now have company

Ric Spooner (Chief Market Analyst, CMC Markets) 20/10/2014 | Today, Australian investors will not have to go it alone buying stocks as they did for much of last week. Bargain hunters this morning will be supported by the morale boosting encouragement of a 3% turnaround in the German Dax and a 264 point rally in the Dow Jones.

The Importance of Ignoring the Noise of the Market

Carl Richards, director of investor education at the BAM Alliance 17/10/2014 | “As odd as it may sound, the sooner you start treating your investments like you treat life, the happier you’ll be with the outcome.”
