License Agreements
Three big toy manufacturer
Largest Toy manufacturer : Mattel
2nd largest toy manufacturer: Hasbro
3rd largest toy manufacturer: Lego
Big change in License agreements
in 2000 Lego bought the license of the Star Wars theme --> first big success

then bought several other license (Spiderman, Indiana jones

acquisition of marvel entertainment by the Walt Disney Company for US$4 billion--> new licensor
License contracts
Disney's role in the toy manufacturer business now
Mattel, Hasbro and Lego all had licensing agreements with Disney.

But Disney had history of licensing toys with Mattel.
Hasbro on the other side has a contract till 2017
Lego and all competitors have all one opportunity in common.

If Disney wants to stay with one toy company, it will give this company a very big boost.

Unfortunately it is on the other side a threat because the others will loose very much market share.
Concerning future possibilities related to licenses

Financial Situation
License agreements have a big influence on every toy manufacturer company

financial aspects:
large advance of money when buying a license plus a percentage of the net sales

Revenue: 4 billion $
doing very well
growth sucessfully -> obvious that we are number 1 in Asia & Europe since 2012
financial ratios are very good
How is LEGO's situation:

Lego products are present in all core regions
licensed products i.g. LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Harry Potter are best sellers
LEGO's has a short distribution channel to the most core regions
How can LEGO achive this?

get contracts with movie studios i.g. Disney, Warner Bro.
adapt their video games to mobil devices
transfer their product line to asia
optimize on licensed sets
open a factory in Asia
