''Mega Brands achieved higher sales and earnings, improved gross margin and stronger cash flow in the third quarter,'' said Marc Bertrand, President and CEO. ''After nine months, we are well ahead of 2011 and well-positioned for the fourth quarter with higher listings at North American retailers compared to the same period last year, including the launch of the Mega Bloks Skylanders Giants and Mega Bloks Barbie collections which will soon be appearing in stores.''
