    Presents or present.

    In Canada the American "presents" has been far more common these last fifty years. The originally British "present" is still acceptable although already vaguely foreign-sounding, except when the name of the company is a plural:

    "Smith Brothers present"/"Jones & Brown present" is better than "The Smith Company present"

    In all cases, however, "presents" is usual.
