Character renews Licence for Teletubbies

Three-year renewal follows success of toy range since launch

LONDON: FRIDAY 14 JULY 2017:  The Board of the Character Group is pleased to announce that DHX Brands (the dedicated brand management and consumer products arm of DHX Media (TSX: DHX.A, DHX.B; NASDAQ: DHXM)), has extended Character Options Limited's (the Group's principal trading subsidiary) master toy license for Teletubbies for a further three years, following the current toys' retail success.  The deal, which runs until 2020, is for worldwide manufacturing rights with U.K. distribution and will see Character Options adding further plush and plastic toys to the range.  New lines (such as Tiddlytubbies) will be inspired by exciting new elements from season two, which launched earlier in 2017.  

The Group's partnership with DHX began in September 2014 and since then the two companies have worked closely together to re-create the iconic well-known characters and bring a refreshed, contemporary look to one of the world's most well-known pre-school properties.  The Teletubbies product range was first re-launched in January 2016 and was the number one best-selling new toy property in the UK that year.

Jon Diver, Joint MD at Character Group, commented:

"This unique property has helped reinforce our position as market leader in the licensed, pre-school category in the UK as well as building on our growth internationally in this key product area.  The DHX partnership is a good example of how we work to seek out and develop exciting products which meet domestic and international market demand. We are delighted with the license extension and look forward to adding and enhancing the product range further."

Tom Roe, Commercial Director at DHX Brands, added:

"As we continue to grow the overall licensing programme for Teletubbies, it is imperative that we build on strong sales and marketing in core categories.  Character Options has done a sterling job with the toy lines and we are excited about the new product to come that will complement the current broadcast season.  We are confident that our continued relationship will see Teletubbies toys go from strength to strength at retail."

Historically, the Teletubbies brand has enjoyed unprecedented success as both a television series and a consumer products phenomenon.
