Bad Toys released is Q2 numbers post close yesterday, and they would pretty much fall into the category of a “non-event”.
The company delivered $11.1 million in revs and $581k in net profits, which translates to $.03 per share.
Profits were a little soft because the company shut down one unprofitable division, and added two new ones during the period. They lost the revenues on the one side. The two new services are taking some time to gear up to full capacity. I would expect earnings to improve to about $.05 in Q3.
I continue to believe there is one key to a resurgence in this stock. You might believe it is the successful spin out of Southland into a separate public company. I don’t believe that’s the case. Bad Toys has two nagging problems it needs to solve which are both inherited from previous management- The company still owes $7.8 million in taxes and $2 to GE Capital. I’m estimating the amounts from the financial statements.
Both of these headaches were inherited from the past administration. The company has turned consistently profitable, but still has to eliminate these legacy issues.
Bad Toys has made no secret of the fact it is working on a more favorable debt financing to eliminate its defaults and restore its fiscal health. If we read about a financing to take out the past debt defaults, this will set us up for a successful spin out of Southland.
In the meantime, not much to say about the stock:
Here’s the big picture, going back one year. The stock traded great in the Fall as investors warmed up to the high levels of revs and reasonable profits.
It peaked early in the year when the company announced the spin out of Southland. Those who follow the situation know this has not gone according to schedule- the company has not gone x dividend, and the process of going effective on the S1 appears to be stalled. They are in the process, but it is, of course, taking forever.
It’s been all down hill since the company failed to go x-dividend. I believe management has simply lost a lot of credibility. They have not delivered what they promised.
Watch for the company to deliver a new debt financing to clean up the past problems and be current in all respects. If they pull it off, I believe that will be a turning point for the stock.
In the meantime, don’t lose sight of the fact that the company is delivering north of $44 million in annual revenues and about $3.5 million in net profits.
