Hasbro Fourth Quarter Revenues Miss The Mark - More Layoffs Planned?
Figures: Jay Cochran on 2013-01-25

Hasbro today released their preliminary financial results for the fourth quarter and full-year 2012. In the report they indicate that due to a drop in consumer demand during the holiday season they missed their 4th quarter projections:

"We had a number of strong product initiatives, but consumer demand through much of the holiday season was less than anticipated in both the U. S. and certain international markets. As a result, fourth quarter revenues did not meet our expectations. Despite the lower than anticipated revenue, we grew our operating profit margin and earnings per share absent fourth quarter restructuring charges and the impact of foreign exchange,"

The report goes on to indicate that a 10% workforce reduction seems to be forthcoming:

The Company expects to incur charges of approximately $37 million pre-tax in 2012, and an additional estimated $20-$30 million in 2013 associated with these planned actions to reduce ongoing expenses, including an approximate 10% reduction in workforce, facility consolidation and process improvements. These actions are anticipated to begin to deliver savings in 2013, with full recognition in 2015 as all aspects of the plan are implemented.
