Pawtucket, R.I., April 19, 2022 -- Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), a global play and entertainment company, today reported financial results for the first quarter 2022.

"The Hasbro teams executed well in the first quarter, growing revenue across segments and positioning us to increase our profit outlook for the year. Based on our current plans, we now believe mid-single digit adjusted operating profit growth and a 16% adjusted operating profit margin is achievable on revenue growth of low-single digits," said Chris Cocks, Hasbro chief executive officer. "As I assumed the role of Hasbro CEO on February 25, we began a thorough review of our business with a theme of focus and scale. We are leaning into our strengths and

greatest growth opportunities, including in gaming, multi-generational brands and direct to consumer.

"Hasbro has carefully assembled an unmatched portfolio of brand-building capabilities and valuable brands to drive profitable growth and long-term shareholder returns," continued Cocks.

"Our first quarter results were in line with our plans, as the team continued to manage supply chain disruptions, positioning us to meet or exceed our outlook for the year," said Deborah Thomas, Hasbro chief financial officer. "As we discussed at year end, pricing increases went into effect in our consumer products business at the beginning of the second quarter and will help offset the higher input and freight costs in future quarters. Given our cash position and positive outlook, we are resuming our share repurchase program with a plan to repurchase $75 to $150 million this year and remain on target to reach our gross debt to adjusted EBITDA target of 2.0 to 2.5X during 2023."

$25.9 $68.2 $31.4 $72.3 

1Reconciliations are included in the attached schedules under the heading "Reconciliation of Adjusted Operating Profit" and “Reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA.”

Consumer Products segment revenues increased 3%. Revenue increased 5% excluding a negative $13.5 million impact of foreign exchange, $12.0 million of which was in Europe.
North America and Latin America posted positive revenue growth, offsetting declines in Europe, which was up 1% absent foreign exchange, and a decline in Asia Pacific.
Operating profit declined to $8.6 million in the traditionally low profit quarter for toys and games. Supply chain disruptions impacted product availability, which caused delays in spring sets at retail. In addition, higher freight and inventory costs negatively impacted profits year over year. To offset these headwinds, product price increases go into effect in the second quarter.
While inventory was of high quality, general supply chain disruptions caused longer in transit times, and earlier purchasing to mitigate out-of-stock situations, lead to an increase in inventory.
For the full-year, we continue to expect revenue growth in the low-single digits. Operating profit growth is expected to outpace revenue growth to drive higher adjusted operating profit margin in the segment.

Wizards of the Coast and Digital Gaming segment revenues increased 9%. Revenues increased 10% excluding a negative $2.9 million impact of foreign exchange.
Tabletop revenues grew 10% and digital and licensed gaming grew 6%.
Operating profit of $106.4 million was 40.5% of revenue which includes continued significant investments in Wizards of the Coast, such as product development and administrative costs, as well as higher paper and freight costs, partially offset by lower advertising expense versus last year which featured several digital gaming launches.
Increased inventory levels to mitigate potential supply challenges.
For the full-year, we now expect revenue growth at the upper end of the previously communicated growth range of mid-single digits with a potential to reach low-double digits, with adjusted operating profit margin down slightly from 42.5% in full-year 2021 as we continue investing in growing these valuable brands.

Entertainment segment revenue increased 4%. Revenue increased 5% excluding a negative $1.0 million impact of foreign exchange.
Entertainment segment revenue grew 22%, excluding $31.8 million of revenue from the Music business which was sold at the beginning of the third quarter last year.
Film and TV revenues increased 14% driven by deliveries of the television shows The Rookie for ABC, which was recently renewed for season 5, and Graymail for Netflix; as well as the film Deepwater for Amazon and Hulu, and several unscripted shows.
Family Brands revenues were up 23% driven by a multi-title renewal with Netflix for MY LITTLE PONY, TRANSFORMERS and POWER RANGERS franchises, as well as revenue from the delivery of Transformers BotBots to Netflix in the quarter.
Adjusted operating profit declined, reflecting the sale of the Music business as well as higher program amortization associated with higher deliveries as well as the mix of titles delivered.
Excluding the 2021 results from the Music business, for the full-year, we continue to expect underlying revenue growth in the mid-single digits and adjusted operating profit margin to outpace revenue growth and deliver margin expansion.

1Effective in the first quarter of 2022, the Company moved PEPPA PIG into Franchise Brands from Emerging Brands. For comparability, the quarter ended March 28, 2021 net revenues have been restated to reflect the elevation of PEPPA PIG from Emerging Brands into Franchise Brands resulting in a change of $31.6 million.
2Hasbro's total gaming category, including all gaming revenue, most notably MAGIC: THE GATHERING and MONOPOLY, which are reported in the Franchise Brands portfolio, totaled $378.8 million for the first quarter 2022, up 4% compared to the respective period in 2021.
3First quarter 2021 TV/Film/Entertainment includes $31.8 million of Music revenue which was sold at the beginning of the third quarter 2021.

Brand Blueprint Leadership
Hasbro is executing significant campaigns around the Brand Blueprint, investing in key growth initiatives and positioning the Company for continued profitable growth.

For the first quarter 2022, revenues grew in Franchise Brands, Partner Brands, Hasbro Gaming, and Emerging Brands. TV/Film/Entertainment revenues were flat, but increased 19% excluding Music revenues. Top brand performances included MAGIC: THE GATHERING, MY LITTLE PONY, PEPPA PIG and Hasbro products for the Marvel portfolio, led by the Spider-Man franchise including products in support of Marvel Studios' Spider-Man: No Way Home and the new animated show Marvel's Spidey and His Amazing Friends, plus Avengers franchise support with the upcoming Marvel Studios' Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Industry-leading Gaming Portfolio
Hasbro's total gaming portfolio revenue, including Franchise Brands MAGIC: THE GATHERING and MONOPOLY, grew 4% to $378.8 million.
MAGIC: THE GATHERING     revenue grew 7%, including growth in tabletop and digital.
Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty became the best-selling Winter set of all time, increasing 28% over last year's set.
Neon Dynasty is the fifth MAGIC set of all time to generate in excess of $100 million and is already one of the top three MAGIC sets ever.
DUNGEONS & DRAGONS revenue grew in both tabletop and digital.
Recently announced strategic acquisition of D&D Beyond from Fandom strengthens Hasbro's capabilities in the fast-growing digital tabletop category, delivering a direct relationship with nearly 10 million fans; providing valuable, data-driven insights to unlock opportunities for growth in new product development, live services and tools; and opportunity for regional expansion.
Digital gaming revenues, including licensed digital gaming, increased 6%.
Magic: The Gathering Arena and D&D digital tabletop revenue growth led this increase.
Hasbro Gaming revenues, which exclude Franchise Brand gaming brands, grew 5% year-over-year.

DUNGEONS & DRAGONS, AVALON HILL's HeroQuest and DUEL MASTERS led this growth, further supplemented by additional classic game titles.

Company Outlook
Coming off a strong year in 2021, the Company has a plan for continued growth in 2022, including low-single digit revenue growth despite the strengthening of the U.S. dollar and potential risk of approximately $100 million in Russia; mid-single digit growth in operating profit to achieve adjusted operating profit margin of 16%, which is above prior guidance; and operating cash flow in the range of $700 to $800 million.

Dividend and Share Repurchase Plan
During the first quarter, Hasbro paid $94.5 million in cash dividends to shareholders. As previously announced in February, the Board of Directors approved an increase of 3% to $0.70 per common share for the next quarterly dividend. This dividend will be payable on May 16, 2022 to shareholders of record at the close of business on May 2, 2022.

A share repurchase program continues to be an important long-term component of Hasbro’s capital allocation strategy and Hasbro has $367 million available under its authorized share repurchase programs. Given the progress made toward reducing debt, we plan to resume repurchases this quarter, with a target of repurchasing $75-$150 million of Hasbro common stock in the open market this year. This repurchase does not change the expectation of returning to the gross debt to adjusted EBITDA target of 2.0 to 2.5X in the second half of 2023 or sooner, depending on business performance and other factors.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The financial tables accompanying this press release include non-GAAP financial measures as defined under SEC rules, specifically Adjusted operating profit, Adjusted net earnings and Adjusted net earnings per diluted share, which exclude, where applicable, acquisition and related costs and, acquired intangible amortization. Also included in this press release are the non-GAAP financial measures of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. EBITDA represents net earnings attributable to Hasbro, Inc. excluding interest expense, income tax expense, net earnings (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests, depreciation and amortization of intangibles. Segment EBITDA represents segment operating profit (loss) plus other income or expense, less depreciation and amortization of intangibles. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes the impact of stock compensation (including acquisition-related stock expense). As required by SEC rules, we have provided reconciliations on the attached schedules of these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Management believes that Adjusted net earnings, Adjusted net earnings per diluted share and Adjusted operating profit provide investors with an understanding of the underlying performance of our business absent unusual events. Management believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are appropriate measures for evaluating the operating performance of our business because they reflect the resources available for strategic opportunities including, among others, to invest in the business, strengthen the balance sheet and make strategic acquisitions. These non-GAAP 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 our consolidated financial statements and filings with the SEC. As used herein, "GAAP" refers to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
