Hasbro Accused of Misleading Investors About Impact of Toys “R” Us
Bankruptcy

According to the complaint, Toys “R” Us, Inc. is one of Hasbro’s biggest
customers, accounting for 9% of the company’s consolidated net revenues
in fiscal year 2016. Although Hasbro was experiencing sales issues in
two key markets and likely knew that Toys “R” Us would file for
bankruptcy and liquidate, Hasbro represented that the company was
well-positioned to deliver profitable growth. Before the extent of the
issues Hasbro faced became publicly known, Hasbro insiders sold $147
million of their personally held Hasbro stock. On September 19, 2017,
Toys “R” Us filed for bankruptcy protection. Then, on October 23, 2017,
Hasbro admitted that the company’s financials had been negatively
impacted by the Toys “R” Us bankruptcy, including a 5% decline in
Hasbro’s U.S. and Canada segment quarterly operating profit. On this
news, Hasbro’s stock fell from the class period high of $115.95 to only
$89.75 per share on October 23, 2017, and has yet to recover.
