PAWTUCKET, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), a leading toy and game company, today reported financial results for the first quarter 2024.

"We landed revenue where we expected and drove significant operating profit improvement led by our operational excellence program and improved business mix. We remain on track for our full-year commitments."

First Quarter 2024 Highlights

  • Adjusted operating profit of $148.6 million (+$101.4 million vs. PY) and adjusted operating margin of 19.6% (+14.9 points vs. PY), driven by favorable business mix, supply chain productivity and reduced operating costs.

  • Reported net earnings of $0.42 per diluted share; adjusted net earnings of $0.61 per diluted share benefiting from improved operations and favorability from a stock compensation adjustment and net interest expense reduction.
  • Operating cash flow of $177.8 million vs. $88.8 million in the prior year driven by improved operating results and benefits from working capital.
  • Paid $97.2 million in cash dividends to shareholders in the quarter.

First Quarter 2024 Segment Details

    • Revenue decrease of 21% driven by broader industry trends, exited businesses and reduced closeout sales as a result of last year's inventory clean-up.
    • Operating margin of -11.4% and adjusted operating margin of -9.2%; cost savings and productivity gains offset by volume declines.
    • FURBY continued to perform well in the quarter supported by the launch of FURBLETS in December 2023.
  • Wizards of the Coast and Digital Gaming Segment
    • Revenue increase of 7% driven by increase in Licensed Digital Gaming revenue behind Baldur's Gate 3 and Monopoly Go!.
    • Tabletop revenue increased 5% behind growth in MAGIC: THE GATHERING shipment timing to support the Outlaws of Thunder Junction release and strong demand for the Universes Beyond Fallout Commander set.
    • Operating profit increased 60% and operating profit margin of 38.8% due to higher digital licensing revenue mix of revenues and cost management.
  • Entertainment Segment
    • Revenue decline of 85% impacted by the sale of eOne Film and TV in December 2023; Absent this impact, revenue grew 65% driven by the delivery of PEPPA PIG content.

See the financial tables accompanying the press release for a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures.

2024 Company Outlook1

For the full year, the Company maintains annual guidance and continues to expect:

  • Consumer Products Segment revenue down 7% to 12% with 4 points of the decline coming from businesses shifting to an out-license model; Operating margin 4% to 6%.
  • Wizards of the Coast Segment revenue down 3% to 5%; Operating margin 38% to 40%.
  • Pro-Forma Entertainment segment revenue down $15 million; Adjusted operating margin of approximately 60%.
  • Total Hasbro, Inc Adjusted EBITDA of $925M to $1B.
  • Gross savings target to $750M by year end 2025.

2024 Capital Allocation priorities:

  • Invest in core business.
  • Return cash to shareholders through the dividend.
  • Continue to pay down debt and progress towards leverage target.

1The Company is not able to reconcile its forward-looking non-GAAP adjusted operating profit margin and adjusted EBITDA measures because the Company cannot predict with certainty the timing and amounts of discrete items such as charges associated with its cost-savings program, which could impact GAAP results.

Dividend Announcement During the first quarter, the Company paid $97.2 million in cash dividends to shareholders. As previously announced, the next dividend will be payable on May 15, 2024 to shareholders of record at the close of business on May 1, 2024. In 2024, to align with industry best practice, the Company expects future dividend declarations will be made closer to the record date.

Forward Looking Statement Safe Harbor Certain statements in this press release contain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements, which may be identified by the use of forward-looking words or phrases, include statements relating to our business strategies and plans; expectations relating to products, gaming and entertainment; anticipated cost savings; financial targets; capital allocation priorities; dividend declarations; and anticipated financial performance for 2024 and beyond. Our actual actions or results may differ materially from those expected or anticipated in the forward-looking statements due to both known and unknown risks and uncertainties. Factors that might cause such a difference include, but are not limited to:

  • our ability to successfully execute on our business strategy and transformation initiatives, including to focus on and scale select business initiatives and brands to drive profitability and to achieve anticipated cost savings;
  • our ability to successfully compete in the play industry and further develop our digital gaming and licensing business;
  • our ability to transform our business and capabilities to address the changing global consumer landscape;
  • our ability to design, develop, manufacture, and ship products on a timely, cost-effective and profitable basis;
  • the concentration of our customers, potentially increasing the negative impact to our business of difficulties experienced by any of our customers or changes in their purchasing or selling patterns;
  • inflation and downturns in global and regional economic conditions impacting one or more of the markets in which we sell products, which can negatively impact our customers and consumers, result in lower employment levels, consumer disposable income, retailer inventories and spending, including lower spending on purchases of our products;
  • risks related to economic and public health conditions or regulatory changes in the markets in which we and our customers, partners, licensees, suppliers and manufacturers operate, such as inflation, rising interest rates, higher commodity prices, labor costs or transportation costs, or outbreaks of illness or disease, the occurrence of which could create work slowdowns, delays or shortages in production or shipment of products, increases in costs or delays in revenue;
  • our dependence on third party relationships, including with third party partners, manufacturers, distributors, studios, content producers, licensors, licensees, and outsourcers, which creates reliance on others and loss of control;
  • risks relating to the concentration of manufacturing for many of our products in the People’s Republic of China and our ability to successfully diversify sourcing of our products to reduce reliance on sources of supply in China;
  • risks associated with international operations, such as conflict in territories in which we operate, currency conversion, currency fluctuations, the imposition of tariffs, quotas, shipping delays or difficulties, border adjustment taxes or other protectionist measures, and other challenges in the territories in which we operate;
  • the success of our key partner brands, including the ability to secure, maintain and extend agreements with our key partners or the risk of delays, increased costs or difficulties associated with any of our or our partners’ planned digital applications or media initiatives;
  • risks related to our leadership changes;
  • our ability to attract and retain talented and diverse employees, particularly following recent workforce reductions;
  • our ability to realize the benefits of cost-savings and efficiency and/or revenue and operating profit enhancing initiatives;
  • risks relating to the impairment and/or write-offs of businesses, products and content we acquire and/or produce;
  • the risk that acquisitions, dispositions and other investments we complete may not provide us with the benefits we expect, or the realization of such benefits may be significantly delayed;
  • our ability to protect our assets and intellectual property, including as a result of infringement, theft, misappropriation, cyber-attacks or other acts compromising the integrity of our assets or intellectual property;
  • fluctuations in our business due to seasonality;
  • the risk of product recalls or product liability suits and costs associated with product safety regulations;
  • changes in tax laws or regulations, or the interpretation and application of such laws and regulations, which may cause us to alter tax reserves or make other changes which significantly impact our reported financial results;
  • the impact of litigation or arbitration decisions or settlement actions;
  • the bankruptcy or other lack of success of one or more of our significant retailers, licensees and other partners; and
  • other risks and uncertainties as may be detailed in our public announcements and U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) filings.

The statements contained herein are based on our current beliefs and expectations. We undertake no obligation to make any revisions to the forward-looking statements contained in this press release or to update them to reflect events or circumstances occurring after the date of this press release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures The financial tables accompanying this press release include non-GAAP financial measures as defined under SEC rules, specifically Adjusted operating profit, Adjusted net earnings and Adjusted net earnings per diluted share, which exclude, where applicable, acquisition-related costs, acquired intangible amortization, Operational Excellence and Blueprint 2.0 implementation charges; and certain non-cash asset impairment charges. Also included in this press release are the non-GAAP financial measures of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. EBITDA represents net earnings attributable to Hasbro, Inc. excluding interest expense, income tax expense, net earnings attributable to noncontrolling interests, depreciation and amortization of intangibles. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes Operational Excellence and Blueprint 2.0 implementation charges, certain non-cash asset impairment charges and the impact of stock compensation (including acquisition-related stock expense). As required by SEC rules, we have provided reconciliations on the attached schedules of these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Management believes that Adjusted net earnings, Adjusted net earnings per diluted share and Adjusted operating profit provide investors with an understanding of the underlying performance of our business absent unusual events. Management believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are appropriate measures for evaluating the operating performance of our business because they reflect the resources available for strategic opportunities including, among others, to invest in the business, strengthen the balance sheet and make strategic acquisitions. These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, net earnings or other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP as more fully discussed in our consolidated financial statements and filings with the SEC. As used herein, "GAAP" refers to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

(i) In association with the Company's acquisition of eOne, the Company incurred stock compensation expenses of $1.9 ($1.7 after-tax) in the quarter ended April 2, 2023. The expense is included within Selling, Distribution and Administration.

(ii) Represents intangible amortization costs related to the intangible assets acquired in the eOne acquisition. The Company has allocated certain of these intangible amortization costs between the Consumer Products and Entertainment segments, to match the revenue generated from such intangible assets. While amortization of acquired intangibles is being excluded from the related GAAP financial measure, the revenue of the acquired company is reflected within the Company's operating results to which these assets contribute.

(iii) These costs relate to the comprehensive review of the Company's operations and development of a transformation plan to support the organization in identifying, realizing and capturing savings to create efficiencies and improve business processes and operations. These charges consist of:

(a) Program related consultant and transformation office fees of $5.2 ($3.9 after tax) for the quarter ended March 31, 2024 and $10.6 ($8.1 after-tax) for the quarter ended April 2, 2023, respectively, are included within Selling, Distribution and Administration within the Corporate and Other segment.

(b) Severance and other employee charges of $5.7 ($4.4 after-tax) for the quarter ended March 31, 2024, associated with cost-savings initiatives across the Company.

(iv) The Company announced the results of its strategic review, Blueprint 2.0, a consumer-centric approach focusing on fewer, bigger brands, expanded licensing, branded entertainment, and high-margin growth in games, digital and direct. As the Company implements the new strategy, charges recognized consist of:

(a) Loss on disposal of a business of $9.1 ($9.1 after-tax) for the quarter ended March 31, 2024 related to the sale of the eOne Film and TV business not directly supporting the Company's Entertainment Strategy within the Entertainment segment, which was executed on December 27, 2023. The year to date charge is included within Loss on Disposal of Business.
