CLASS ACTION ALERT: Brower Piven Notifies Investors of Class Action Lawsuit And Encourages Those Who Have Significant Losses From Investment In Hasbro, Inc. (Nasdaq: HAS) To Contact Brower Piven Before The Lead Plaintiff Deadline

November 6, 2018

STEVENSON, Md., Nov. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the District of Rhode Island on behalf of purchasers of Hasbro, Inc. (Nasdaq: HAS) (“Hasbro” or the “Company”) securities during the period between April 24, 2017 and October 23, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Investors who wish to become proactively involved in the litigation have until November 27, 2018 to seek appointment as lead plaintiff.

If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement for the class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in Hasbro securities during the Class Period. Members of the class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. No class has yet been certified in the above action.

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants’ failure to disclose during the Class Period that 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, and Hasbro was experiencing significant undisclosed adverse sales issues in two key markets.

According to the complaint, following a July 24, 2017 press release announcing that the Company was seeing some softness in economic conditions in Brazil and the United Kingdom, and an October 23, 2017 announcement that Toys “R” Us bankruptcy had a negative impact on the Company’s quarterly revenues and operating profit, the value of Hasbro shares declined significantly.

If you have suffered a loss in excess of $100,000 from investment in Hasbro securities purchased on or after April 24, 2017 and held through the revelation of negative information during and/or at the end of the Class Period and would like to learn more about this lawsuit and your ability to participate as a lead plaintiff, without cost or obligation to you, please contact Brower Piven either by email at hoffman@browerpiven.com or by telephone at (410) 415-6616.

If you choose to retain counsel, you may retain Brower Piven without financial obligation or cost to you, or you may retain other counsel of your choice. You need take no action at this time to be a member of the class.
