Hasbro Reports Revenue, Operating Profit and Net Earnings Growth for Full-Year 2015

Board of Directors Increases Quarterly Dividend 11%, or $0.05 per share, to $0.51 per share

PAWTUCKET, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) today reported financial results for the full-year and fourth quarter 2015. Net revenues for the full-year 2015 increased 4% to $4.45 billion compared to $4.28 billion in 2014. Excluding a negative $394.5 million impact from foreign exchange, 2015 revenues increased 13%.

As reported net earnings for the full-year 2015 increased 9% to $451.8 million, or $3.57 per diluted share, compared to $415.9 million, or $3.20 per diluted share, in 2014. Adjusted net earnings for the full-year 2015 were $445.0 million, or $3.51 per diluted share, excluding a pre-tax gain of $9.6 million from the sale of the Company's manufacturing operations in East Longmeadow, MA and Waterford, Ireland. This compares to adjusted net earnings for the full-year 2014 of $408.7 million, or $3.15 per diluted share. 2014 adjusted net earnings exclude pre-tax charges of $28.3 million associated with restructuring of the Company's joint venture television network and $5.2 million associated with other restructuring activities which were more than offset by a pre-tax benefit of $36.0 million from the sale of licensed rights for intellectual property and $6.6 million in favorable tax adjustments related to tax exam settlements.

"Hasbro's global teams delivered another year of revenue, operating profit and earnings growth supported by our diversified brand portfolio, story-led initiatives and strong global execution," said Brian Goldner, Hasbro's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "On a constant currency basis, our growth accelerated in 2015 and we began 2016 with positive momentum and good visibility to growth drivers for this year and beyond. In 2015, we overcame an unprecedented impact from foreign exchange translation, both on the top and bottom line, while driving strong consumer demand and engagement as well as gaining share in markets around the world."

"In 2015, the benefits of our Brand Blueprint strategy were evident in the strength of our financial results," said Deborah Thomas, Hasbro's Chief Financial Officer. "As we continue investing in differentiating capabilities, we are seeing new, higher levels of sustainable gross and operating margins. Consumers are recognizing and embracing the innovation our global teams are delivering while we are also improving the efficiency of our organization. Margin improvement and the associated cash flow are delivering enhanced shareholder value as we continue investing in the future potential of Hasbro."

Fourth Quarter 2015 Financial Results

Fourth quarter 2015 net revenues increased 13% to $1.47 billion compared to $1.30 billion in 2014. Excluding a negative $128.1 million impact from foreign exchange, fourth quarter 2015 revenues increased 23%.

As reported net earnings for the fourth quarter 2015 were $175.8 million, or $1.39 per diluted share, compared to $169.9 million, or $1.34 per diluted share in 2014. Adjusted net earnings for the fourth quarter 2014 were $154.9 million, or $1.22 per diluted share. Fourth quarter 2014 adjusted net earnings exclude pre-tax charges of $16.8 million associated with restructuring of the Company's joint venture television network and $5.2 million associated with other restructuring activities which were more than offset by a pre-tax benefit of $36.0 million from the sale of licensed rights for intellectual property and $6.9 million in favorable tax adjustments related to tax exam settlements.

Full-year 2015 U.S. and Canada segment net revenues increased 10% to $2.23 billion compared to $2.02 billion in 2014. Growth in the Boys, Games and Preschool categories offset a decline in the Girls category. The U.S. and Canada segment reported operating profit growth of 29% to $430.7 million, or 19.4% of net revenues, compared to $334.7 million, or 16.5% of net revenues, in 2014.

International Segment net revenues were $1.97 billion compared to $2.02 billion in 2014. Growth in the Boys and Preschool categories were more than offset by declines in the Games and Girls categories. On a regional basis, the negative impact of foreign currency resulted in revenue declines in Europe and Latin America, offsetting a 2% increase in Asia Pacific. Emerging markets revenues declined 9% in the year. Excluding an unfavorable $379.4 million impact of foreign exchange, net revenues in the International Segment grew 16%, increasing 18% in Europe, 15% in Latin America and 11% in Asia Pacific. Emerging markets increased approximately 15% absent the impact of foreign exchange. Foreign exchange also negatively impacted operating profit. As reported, International Segment operating profit of $255.4 million was down 6% to 13.0% of net revenues, compared to $270.5 million, or 13.4% of net revenues, in 2014. Excluding the negative impact of foreign exchange, the International segment operating profit was $302.1 million, or 12.8% of net revenues, an increase of 12% versus 2014.

Entertainment and Licensing segment net revenues increased 11% to $244.7 million compared to $219.5 million in 2014. The segment benefited from a multi-year digital streaming deal for Hasbro Studios television programming signed during the first quarter 2015 and growth in consumer product licensing revenues. The Entertainment and Licensing segment reported 27% operating profit growth to $76.9 million, or 31.4% of revenues, compared to $60.6 million, or 27.6% of revenues, in 2014.

Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2015 Product Category Performance

                         
    Net Revenues ($ Millions)
  Q4 2015   Q4 2014   % Change   FY 2015   FY 2014   % Change
Boys   $569.8   $421.9   +35%   $1,775.9   $1,484.0   +20%
Games   $465.8   $418.3   +11%   $1,276.5   $1,259.8   +1%

Preschool   $170.9   $146.0   +17%   $596.8   $510.8   +17%
         

Full-year 2015 Boys category revenues increased 20% to $1.78 billion. Franchise Brand NERF revenues increased along with STAR WARS, JURASSIC WORLD and MARVEL. This growth more than offset the decline in TRANSFORMERS, which faced difficult comparisons versus 2014's theatrical release of TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION. The Boys category grew 30% absent the impact of foreign exchange.

Games category revenues increased 1% for the year to $1.28 billion. Franchise Brands MAGIC: THE GATHERING and MONOPOLY, as well as PIE FACE and several other games brands contributed to growth for the year. The Games category grew 8% absent the impact of foreign exchange.

Girls category revenues declined 22% in 2015 to $798.2 million. As was the case throughout 2015, FURBY represented the largest revenue decline. Core MY LITTLE PONY revenues increased, but were offset by declines in EQUESTRIA GIRLS. Revenue growth in PLAY-DOH DOHVINCI as well as the introduction of DISNEY'S DESCENDANTS partially offset category revenue declines. Modest initial shipments for DISNEY PRINCESS and DISNEY'S FROZEN commenced during the fourth quarter. The bulk of initial shipments are occurring in the first quarter 2016 with product now available in the U.S. and rolling out internationally. The Girls category declined 13% absent the impact of foreign exchange.

Preschool category revenues increased 17% to $596.8 million for the full-year 2015. Franchise Brand PLAY-DOH contributed the greatest revenue growth, further supported by gains in JURASSIC WORLD, STAR WARS and the launch of PLAYSKOOL FRIENDS MY LITTLE PONY. The Preschool category grew 28% absent the impact of foreign exchange.

Dividend and Share Repurchase

In 2015, Hasbro returned $310.7 million to shareholders including $225.8 million in cash dividends. Hasbro's Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.51 per common share.

Certain statements in this release contain "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements include expectations concerning the Company's potential performance in the future, including with respect to anticipated future benefits from investments in the Company's business and strategic efforts to grow the Company's brand portfolio and content delivery over the longer-term, and the Company's ability to achieve its other financial and business goals and may be identified by the use of forward-looking words or phrases. The Company's 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. Specific factors that might cause such a difference include, but are not limited to: (i) the Company's ability to design, develop, produce, manufacture, source and ship products on a timely and cost-effective basis, as well as interest in and purchase of those products by retail customers and consumers in quantities and at prices that will be sufficient to profitably recover the Company's costs; (ii) downturns in economic conditions affecting the Company's markets which can negatively impact the Company's retail customers and consumers, and which can result in lower employment levels, lower consumer disposable income and spending, including lower spending on purchases of the Company's products; (iii) other factors which can lower discretionary consumer spending, such as higher costs for fuel and food, drops in the value of homes or other consumer assets, and high levels of consumer debt; (iv) potential difficulties or delays the Company may experience in implementing cost savings and efficiency enhancing initiatives; (v) other economic and public health conditions or regulatory changes in the markets in which the Company and its customers and suppliers operate which could create delays or increase the Company's costs, such as higher commodity prices, labor costs or transportation costs, or outbreaks of disease; (vi) currency fluctuations, including movements in foreign exchange rates, which can lower the Company's net revenues and earnings, and significantly impact the Company's costs; (vii) the concentration of the Company's customers, potentially increasing the negative impact to the Company of difficulties experienced by any of the Company's customers or changes in their purchasing or selling patterns; (viii) consumer interest in and acceptance of the Discovery Family Channel, and programming created by Hasbro Studios, and other factors impacting the financial performance of the network and Hasbro Studios; (ix) the inventory policies of the Company's retail customers, including retailers' potential decisions to lower their inventories, even if it results in lost sales, as well as the concentration of the Company's revenues in the second half and fourth quarter of the year, which coupled with reliance by retailers on quick response inventory management techniques increases the risk of underproduction of popular items, overproduction of less popular items and failure to achieve compressed shipping schedules; (x) delays, increased costs or difficulties associated with any of our or our partners' planned digital applications or media initiatives; (xi) work disruptions, which may impact the Company's ability to manufacture or deliver product in a timely and cost-effective manner; (xii) the bankruptcy or other lack of success of one of the Company's significant retailers which could negatively impact the Company's revenues or bad debt exposure; (xiii) the impact of competition on revenues, margins and other aspects of the Company's business, including the ability to offer Company products which consumers choose to buy instead of competitive products, the ability to secure, maintain and renew popular licenses and the ability to attract and retain talented employees; (xiv) concentration of manufacturing for many of the Company's products in the People's Republic of China and the associated impact to the Company of social, economic or public health conditions and other factors affecting China, the movement of products into and out of China, the cost of producing products in China and exporting them to other countries; (xv) the risk of product recalls or product liability suits and costs associated with product safety regulations; (xvi) the impact of other market conditions, third party actions or approvals and competition which could reduce demand for the Company's products or delay or increase the cost of implementation of the Company's programs or alter the Company's actions and reduce actual results; (xvii) the impact of litigation or arbitration decisions or settlement actions; and (xviii) other risks and uncertainties as may be detailed from time to time in the Company's public announcements and Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") filings. The Company undertakes no obligation to make any revisions to the forward-looking statements contained in this release or to update them to reflect events or circumstances occurring after the date of this release.

This press release includes a non-GAAP financial measure as defined under SEC rules, specifically EBITDA. EBITDA represents net earnings attributable to Hasbro, Inc. excluding net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests, interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. As required by SEC rules, we have provided reconciliation on the attached schedule of this measure to the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Management believes that EBITDA is one of the appropriate measures for evaluating the operating performance of the Company because it reflects the resources available for strategic opportunities including, among others, to invest in the business, strengthen the balance sheet, and make strategic acquisitions.

The press release also includes the Company's 2015 cost and expenses, operating profit, earnings before income taxes, net earnings, and diluted earnings per share excluding the impact of the sale of the Company's manufacturing operations in East Longmeadow, MA and Waterford, Ireland as well as the Company's 2014 cost and expenses, operating profit, earnings before income taxes, net earnings, and diluted earnings per share excluding the impact of the 2014 restructuring charges related to the Company's investment in its joint television network and other restructuring charges as well as the impact of 2014 benefits related to the sale of intellectual property license rights and certain favorable tax adjustments. Management believes that presenting this data excluding these impacts assists investors in understanding the performance of the Company's underlying business and the results of operations. In addition, this press release includes the Company's Consolidated, International segment and product category net revenues, as well as International segment operating profit excluding the impact of changes in exchange rates. Management believes that the presentation excluding the impact of exchange rate changes provides information that is helpful to an investor's understanding of the underlying business performance absent exchange rate fluctuations which are beyond the Company's control. These 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 the Company's financial statements and filings with the SEC. As used herein, "GAAP" refers to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
