Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP Announces the Filing of a Securities Class Action on Behalf of Hasbro, Inc. Investors (HAS)

October 5, 2018

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 5, 2018--Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP (“GPM”) announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors that purchased Hasbro, Inc. (“Hasbro” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:  HAS ) securities between  April 24, 2017 and October 23, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Hasbro investors have until  November 27, 2018 to file a lead plaintiff motion.

On October 23, 2017, Hasbro announced its third quarter 2017 financial results. Hasbro’s CEO stated that “[a]s a result of the Toys ‘R’ Us bankruptcy filing in the U.S. and Canada, there was a negative impact on our quarterly revenues and operating profit.” On this news, shares of Hasbro fell $2.94, or 22%, to close at $89.75, on October 23, 2017, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that Hasbro made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Hasbro’s relationship with Toys “R” Us was becoming increasingly important to Hasbro’s business, but that Toys “R” Us was in far worse financial condition than was being publicly reported; (2) Hasbro was experiencing significant undisclosed adverse sales issues in two key markets—the United Kingdom and Brazil—which were negatively impacting Hasbro’s efforts to grow sales in those markets; and (3) as a result of the foregoing, defendants’ statements about Hasbro’s business and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
