Toys “R” Us ANZ, the exclusive licensee for the Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us brands in those regions, reported its fiscal year 2022 earnings this week, reflecting 74% year-over-year growth in revenue. The company says that its revenue from continuing operations hit $37.9 million this year as it begins to expand both direct-to-consumer (DTC) and business-to-business (B2B) sales.

The e-commerce business has not yet resulted in any physical stores for its operating regions.
