The company reported earnings of 52 cents a share, compared to Wall Street expectations of earnings of 71 cents a share. The toy company posted revenue of $1.83 billion for the quarter, an 8% slip compared to the same period last year. Sales of Barbie products fell 2% globally during the quarter, disappointing in light of the brand's introduction of new dolls with varying body sizes and skin-tones.
On an earnings call last night, outgoing Mattel CEO Christopher Sinclair said the miss was due to a 7% decline in holiday sales. Mattel lost its Disney (DIS) - Get Walt Disney Company Report Princess manufacturing rights to rival toy company Hasbro (HAS) - Get Hasbro, Inc. Report last year.
For the full year, Mattel posted adjusted earnings of 92 cents a share on $5.46 billion in revenue, lower than last year's earnings of $1.26 a share on revenue of $5.7 billion.
