“While 2020 has presented many unprecedented situations, the Thunderbird team continues to demonstrate resilience and adaptability,” CEO Jennifer McCarron said in a statement. “In March, we successfully transitioned all 1000+ employees offsite without missing a beat, and, in fact, our revenue has increased 41% over the prior year to $81.3 million.”

Thunderbird ended the fiscal year with 18 programs in production and in deals with Netflix, NBCUniversal, Nickelodeon, PBS, GBH, Bell Media's Discovery, APTN, Corus Entertainment, CBC and others.

Across its various divisions, the company delivered 29 half-hour episodes and 26 hour-long episodes during the quarter. Of those, all the hour-long episodes and a third of the half-hour episodes were Thunderbird-owned intellectual property.

“There is a strong demand for Thunderbird content, and we feel fortunate to be working in an industry experiencing accelerating trends. 2020 has also forced us all to look inward and challenge our assumptions around diversity and inclusion – Thunderbird is well positioned to deliver on this and I am proud of the steps we have made as a company, and will strive to continue to lead in this area.”

During the quarter, Thunderbird’s Emmy winning hit Kim’s Convenience’s fourth season began streaming on Netflix outside of Canada. The program has already been renewed for two additional seasons. 

The company’s adjusted EBITDA for C$2.9 million for the quarter and C$15.5 million for the year, compared to C$1 million and C$12.8 million, respectively in fiscal 2019.
