Hasbro Reports Financial Results For The Third Quarter 2012

Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) today reported financial results for the third quarter 2012. Net earnings for the third quarter 2012 were $164.9 million, or $1.24 per diluted share, versus $171.0 million, or $1.27 per diluted share, in 2011. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange translation, net earnings were $169.8 million, or $1.28 per diluted share. Net revenues for the third quarter 2012 were $1.35 billion compared to $1.38 billion in 2011. Excluding a negative $47.4 million impact of foreign exchange, net revenues increased 1% to $1.39 billion.

“We are delivering on the objectives we set for the year,” said Brian Goldner, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The U.S. and Canada segment operating profits are improving to historical levels and the Games category is stabilizing with innovative new offerings and partnerships. Additionally, we are driving innovation across Hasbro and partner brands this holiday season including toys, games, digital play, licensed goods and immersive entertainment experiences for consumers around the world.”

“We are entering the holiday season with exciting, innovative products, including some of the hottest toys in the market and a tremendously successful MARVEL line,” said Deborah Thomas, Chief Financial Officer. “In the all important fourth quarter, we plan to drive these and other initiatives with a significant increase in marketing support in an environment of significantly lower U.S. retail inventory. As a result, for the full year 2012, we continue to believe, absent the impact of foreign exchange, we will again grow revenues and earnings per share.”
