Hasbro Reports Third Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Games and Digital Drive Strong Adjusted Profit and Margin Growth

Pawtuckett, RI– Hasbro Inc. reported financial results for the third quarter 2023.

“Our third quarter results highlight the strength of Hasbro’s diversified toy and game portfolio and the progress we have made on our transformation,” said Chris Cocks, Hasbro chief executive officer. “Wizards of the Coast and Digital Gaming delivered a standout performance across strength in MAGIC: THE GATHERING and DUNGEONS & DRAGONS, particularly the blockbuster August release of Baldur’s Gate III. We are taking action to address the tougher macro environment across Toys and Entertainment and are positioning the Company to return to profitable growth. Building on the strategy we outlined a year ago, we’re growing share behind our Franchise Brands in core categories, driving savings and investment capacity through operational excellence, and building new growth for the Company across games, direct to consumer and licensing. With the upcoming sale of the eOne Film and TV business, we are refocusing our Company on what has traditionally made us great, the business of play.

“We believe in the long-term growth potential of toys and are leaning in. Our plan for Q4 is to drive share over the holiday, exit the year with clean inventory, a much-improved corporate overhead, and a clear runway for introducing new product innovation and go to market support in the quarters ahead.”

“We are making good progress on our transformation and the work we have done to date has positioned us well to grow our world-class gaming portfolio and strengthen our Toy business,” said Gina Goetter, Hasbro chief financial officer. “We continue to make progress in lowering inventory levels and are on track to meet our long-term gross cost savings goals earlier than expected.

“Although the impact of the broader Toy category declines has changed our Consumer Products and total Hasbro outlook, we are growing share in the categories where we compete and beginning to see the benefits of our cost savings initiatives play through the P&L. Resetting our cost base and removing complexity will help ensure we are well positioned as we sharpen our innovation pipeline for 2024 and 2025.”

Highlights

  • Q3 Hasbro, Inc. revenue declined 10% with significant growth in Wizards of the Coast and Digital Gaming segment (+40%) not able to offset the declines in Consumer Products (-18%) and Entertainment (-42%).
  • Wizards of the Coast revenue growth driven by the success of licensed digital games Baldur’s Gate III and Monopoly Go! which drove $63 million of incremental revenue in Q3.
  • Consumer Product revenue decline result of exited licenses and softer category trends; share increased across four of the five focus categories.
  • Operating profit loss of $169.5 million; Adjusted operating profit of $342.6 million; Adjusted operating profit margin of 22.8% was +6.7 margin points ahead of last year due to the mix benefit from the growth in licensed digital games and cost savings outpacing inflation.
  • Adjusted results exclude the pre-tax impact of loss on assets held for sale of $473 million related to the planned sale of the eOne Film and TV business.
  • On track to deliver approximately $200 million of gross cost savings in 2023 as part of Operational Excellence initiative.
  • Reduced owned inventory 27%, including a 34% decline in Consumer Products inventory.
  • Updated 2023 guidance reflects impact of lower revenue outlook for Consumer Products segment; no change to outlook for Wizards of the Coast and Digital Gaming or Entertainment segments.
  • Sale of eOne Film and TV business on track to close by year end.

Consumer Products Segment

  • Revenue decrease of 18% driven by exited businesses, soft industry trends and prioritization of inventory management across both owned and retail inventory.
  • Adjusted operating profit margin of 11.2% declined -1.4 margin points versus last year driven by product mix and higher cost to move inventory.

Wizards of the Coast and Digital Gaming Segment

1Effective in the first quarter of 2023, the Company realigned its Brand Portfolios to Franchise Brands, Partner Brands, Portfolio Brands and Non-Hasbro Branded Film & TV. Franchise Brands include DUNGEONS & DRAGONS, Hasbro Gaming, MAGIC: THE GATHERING, NERF, PEPPA PIG, PLAY-DOH and TRANSFORMERS. A schedule of historical quarterly revenue is available at https://investor.hasbro.com/ under Financials & Filings.

Franchise Brands

  • Franchise Brands revenue increased 8% in the quarter driven by digital and tabletop growth for DUNGEONS & DRAGONS, MAGIC: THE GATHERING, Hasbro Gaming, and TRANSFORMERS products.

Partner Brands

  • Total Partner Brand revenue was down -35% in the quarter due to license exits, general industry softness, and lapping strong entertainment slate last year.

Portfolio Brands

  • Total Portfolio Brands revenue was down -19% in the quarter driven by the ongoing reprioritization of investment to support Franchise Brands, as well as transitioning select brands to a licensing model.
  • Relaunch of FURBY positively contributed to the quarter and is among Top Toy Lists and awards for the holiday season.

1Hasbro’s Total Gaming Category includes all gaming revenue, most notably MAGIC: THE GATHERING, Hasbro Gaming and DUNGEONS & DRAGONS.

Capital Priorities and Dividend

During the third quarter and year-to-date, Hasbro paid $97 million and $291 million, respectively, in cash dividends to shareholders. The next dividend of $0.70 per common share was previously declared and will be payable on November 15, 2023 to shareholders of record at the close of business on November 1, 2023.

Operational Excellence Program

In support of Hasbro’s Blueprint 2.0 strategy, Hasbro implemented an Operational Excellence program to deliver $250-$300 million in annualized gross cost savings by year-end 2025. Year-to-date 2023, the Company realized $154 million of gross savings and is on track to achieve over $200 million of in-year gross cost savings for the full-year 2023. Expected cash costs to implement the program are approximately $200 million, of which $65 million was spent year-to-date 2023 and $82 million in total since the program launch. A $6.4 million after-tax charge was recorded in the third quarter 2023 associated with the execution of the program.

Company Outlook

The outlook incorporates the impact of the broader Toy category declines, which is impacting the Consumer Product Segment. The guidance continues to assume eOne Film and TV is included for the entire fiscal year and guidance will be updated once the eOne Film and TV sale transaction is complete.

The Company now expects:

  • Revenue decline of 13 – 15% driven by softer toy outlook in Consumer Products.
    • Reducing Consumer Product guidance to down mid- to high-teens versus last year.
    • No change to Wizards of the Coast and Digital Gaming Segment of up high-single digits.
    • No change to Entertainment segment to down 25 – 30%.
  • Adjusted operating margin of 13.0% – 13.5%1.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $900 – $950 million1.
  • Operating Cash Flow of $500 – $600 million.

1The Company is not able to reconcile its forward-looking non-GAAP adjusted operating profit margin, adjusted earnings per diluted share 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. Guidance does not reflect the announced sale of select entertainment assets. The Company plans to update its outlook upon completion of the transaction.
