Hasbro Files Investor Presentation for 2022 Annual Meeting

Urges Shareholders to Vote FOR ALL of Hasbro’s Highly Qualified Directors on the WHITE Proxy Card

PAWTUCKET, R.I.—May 16, 2022 – Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), a global play and entertainment company, today announced that it has filed an investor presentation with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) in connection with the Company’s 2022 annual meeting of shareholders to be held on June 8, 2022.

Key Highlights of the Presentation:


The Brand Blueprint is a winning strategy that has been a long-term success and is the widely emulated business model in the play and entertainment space. Hasbro has shown that its diversified business model and balanced portfolio are strengths, especially during challenging times.


Hasbro’s Board has made significant changes over the last seven months, appointing a new CEO, separating the Chair and CEO positions, adding three highly qualified directors with digital gaming and capital allocation expertise and committing that two directors will step down no later than the Company’s 2024 annual meeting. Overall, since 2016, six new directors joined and five departed the Board.


CEO Chris Cocks is a change agent with a technology background and a successful track record as the head of the Wizards of the Coast and Digital Gaming division, a business he doubled in size in three years, in part due to the Board’s support and authorization of more than $1 billion of investment in Wizards over the last five years.


Mr. Cocks, in partnership with the Board, has initiated a comprehensive strategy review focusing on building direct relationships with Hasbro’s consumers, driving the Company’s industry leading gaming portfolio, expanding multi-generational play, scaling fewer, bigger opportunities and employing disciplined reinvestment, all to drive profitable growth.


Hasbro generated strong TSR vs. relevant peers in toys and games, gaming and entertainment prior to COVID-19. Against entertainment peers, Hasbro fared better during COVID-19 in large part due to its diversified business model.


eOne is a highly strategic acquisition and, despite delayed returns given pandemic lockdowns, positions the Company to accelerate operational growth and deliver value for shareholders. Hasbro’s Board is committed to strict financial discipline as evidenced by the divestment of the non-core eOne music business, the proceeds of which it used to pay down debt.


Hasbro’s Board has the right skills and experience to support Mr. Cocks in introducing and delivering the Hasbro gameplan for continued long-term value creation. He needs the support of directors with a balance of fresh perspectives and institutional/industry knowledge as they push Hasbro for bold changes in a rapidly evolving world.


Alta Fox’s thesis and director nominees are not right for Hasbro. After careful analysis, with the assistance of outside advisors, Hasbro’s Board concluded that spinning off Wizards of the Coast would not create value for shareholders. Alta Fox’s nominees would not be additive to the Board as they lack relevant corporate and industry experience across consumer products, entertainment and gaming, and may disrupt the execution of our plan.


Hasbro sought to avoid a proxy contest and has demonstrated a continued willingness to explore settlement possibilities. Alta Fox refused to even discuss the qualification of candidates identified by Hasbro. Instead, Alta Fox made the appointment of one of its candidates a pre-condition to any substantive settlement discussion, rather than being open to finding the best possible candidates for Hasbro’s Board and all shareholders.



The Board of Directors of Hasbro recommends shareholders vote “FOR ALL” the nominees proposed by the Hasbro Board at the upcoming annual meeting on the WHITE proxy card. If shareholders have any questions or require any assistance with voting their shares, they may contact Hasbro’s proxy solicitors: Innisfree M&A Incorporated at 1 (877) 825-8971 or Morrow Sodali LLC at 1 (800) 662-5200.

Information about Hasbro’s executive officers and directors, including information regarding the direct and indirect interests, by security holdings or otherwise, is available in Hasbro’s definitive proxy statement for the 2022 annual meeting, which was filed with the SEC on April 25, 2022.

These documents are or will be available free of charge at the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov.Use of Non-GAAP Financial MeasuresThis presentation contains non-GAAP financial measures as defined under SEC rules, specifically Adjusted Operating Profit and Adjusted Net Earnings per diluted share, which exclude, where applicable, acquisition and related costs, acquired intangible amortization, loss on disposal of business and related costs, severance, UK Tax Reform, stock acceleration and net loss on Discovery investment. Also included in this presentation 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. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes the impact of stock compensation (including stock acceleration expense and acquisition-related stock expense), acquisition-related costs, loss on disposal of business and related costs, severance and net loss on Discovery investment. As required by SEC rules, we have provided reconciliations in the appendix of these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Management believes that 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.

 Hasbro Has the Right Strategy and Board to Deliver Value  Hasbro Has Generated Strong Returns; Recent Returns Impacted by COVID-19  Hasbro generated favorable TSR vs. relevant peers in consumer products, gaming and entertainment prior to COVID-19Since the start of COVID-19, Hasbro’s TSR suffered due to the timing of the eOne transaction and other headwinds (e.g., China, supply chain, inflation) that put pressure on Hasbro’s business and share price similar to other entertainment businessesNotably, Hasbro’s TSR outperformed other entertainment businesses during this periodUnder the leadership of Chris Cocks, Hasbro is positioned to accelerate growth and drive shareholder returns  eOne Was Highly Strategic Despite Unfortunate Timing  eOne acquisition was highly strategic, although it closed just prior to COVID-19 lockdowns, which resulted in delayed returnsNotably, PEPPA PIG and PJ MASKS accounted for almost 50% of eOne’s EBITDA at the time of acquisitionToday, eOne’s performance is back on track and the full $130 million of synergies still expected to be realized this year  Hasbro’s BoardHas the Right Skills and Experience to Support Chris Cocks  Chris needs the support of directors with a balance of fresh perspectives and institutional / industry knowledge as they push Hasbro for bold changes to adapt to a new environmentThe Board’s expertise and experience is directly relevant to overseeing Hasbro’s world class portfolio of assets across multiple play and entertainment categoriesHasbro has one of the most diverse Boards in the S&P 500, which has been significantly refreshed in recent years  (continued)  Hasbro’s Board is Financially Disciplined  Hasbro’s Board is committed to strict financial disciplineDivested non-core eOne music business with proceeds used for business reinvestment and debt pay downD&D Beyond acquisition is a recent example of both the Board’s and Chris’ disciplined approachOver time, Hasbro passed on multiple investments that were not strategically or financially accretive to its business 
 


 Hasbro Has the Right Strategy and Board to Deliver Value  (continued)  Hasbro Sought to Avoid a Proxy Contest with Alta Fox  Hasbro made a sincere effort to address Alta Fox’s proposals, including multiple settlement discussionsHasbro offered, but Alta Fox refused to even discuss the qualification of independent candidates identified by HasbroInstead, Alta Fox made the appointment of one of its candidates a pre-condition to any substantive settlement discussion, rather than being collaborative with Hasbro to find the best possible candidates for the Board  Alta Fox’s Thesis and Director Nominees Are Not Right For Hasbro  After careful consideration, Hasbro’s Board independently concluded that spinning off Wizards of the Coast would not create value for shareholdersAlta Fox does not appear to understand Hasbro’s strategy, operations, and how being part of Hasbro and the Brand Blueprint is key to Wizards’ successAlta Fox seeks to replace Hasbro’s highly qualified directors with individuals lacking relevant industry experience; its nominees would not be additive to our Board and would likely disrupt the execution of our plan 
 


 Hasbro’s Board Chose Chris Cocks as Change Agent  Chris will apply his unique background and proven approach to all of Hasbro  The Board appointed Chris following a multi-year succession planning process which evaluated internal and external CEO candidates, with the help of an executive search firmRecognizing the consumer is evolving, the Board did not choose a toy veteran as Hasbro’s next CEOInstead, the Board made the decision to hire Chris Cocks and rethink how Hasbro operates as a company to drive shareholder valueSince joining Hasbro in 2016 from Microsoft, Chris led and operated Wizards differently than the rest of the companyHasbro and Chris invested more than $1 billion in Wizards over the last 5 years, resulting in a doubling of revenue in the last three years, while also expanding marginsWizards’ exceptional track record is a testament to the successful partnership between Chris and the Hasbro BoardThe Board is already working with Chris to execute a comprehensive strategic plan review to set Hasbro’s future course and drive profitable growthChris will apply the growth orientation and capital discipline that he successfully demonstrated during his time at Wizards to the entire Hasbro business  Hasbro’s gameplan is clear: drive shareholder returns by growing Hasbro’s world class portfolio of brands through focus and scale and amplifying Hasbro’s industry-leading gaming portfolio by putting the consumer at the center and creating direct relationships with fans 
 


                         Brand Blueprint Strategy Creates Greater Opportunity  Hasbro’s strategy is increasingly the broadly followed model for success in multigenerational play & entertainment, and it is the platform for the company’s next phase of growth  Toys & Collectibles  Iconic Portfolio of Brands  Holistic Set of Capabilities  Tabletop &Digital Games  TV, Film &Animation  Licensing &Partnerships  Industry-Leading CP & LicensingGlobal leader in toys & games for children and familiesAward-Winning EntertainmentPlatform-agnostic content creator leveraging Hasbro’s iconic brandsMulti-Platform GamesAmong the largest, most profitable and fastest growing gaming portfolios across tabletop and digital platforms  PRESCHOOL  ADULT FANS  KIDS & FAMILIES  Three Strategic Priorities    Games    Multigenerational Play & Entertainment    Direct-to-Consumer 
 


 Hasbro’s Disciplined Approach to Brand Investment and Capital Allocation Has Driven Tremendous Growth      Note: FY 2021 revenue not shown to scale between brands; FY 2006 was solely comprised of toys & games revenue and FY 2021 was comprised of toys & games, digital gaming and entertainment and licensed products  Total Revenue for Select Hasbro Brands  8.4x  5.6x  4.2x  3.6x  3.0x  1.5x  Hasbro’s gameplan going forward will focus on fewer and bigger opportunities, and result in more significant investments behind key brands and a simplification of Hasbro’s consumer products business

 “[We] think the new board members provide needed expertise in key verticals (i.e., video games)”– Stifel (April 7, 2022)  “Under the leadership of a new CEO, Hasbro's conference call had a distinctly different flow & degree of disclosure. ‘Focus & scale’ is the headline, which provides perspective on recent actions to slenderize the portfolio and invest in fewer, bigger ideas, namely Wizards (Magic and D&D)."– Jefferies (April 19, 2022)  “We like the path CEO, Chris Cocks is starting to lay out for Hasbro's future growth plans […] it is clear efforts are already in place for improving the focus and scale […] Hasbro's long-term growth strategy will continue to focus on the Brand Blueprint, but CEO Chris Cocks is beginning to take steps to reallocate assets towards areas that can build more scale and improve returns”– MKM Partners (April 25, 2022)  “Earlier this week, Hasbro added two new members to its Board of Directors […] The new board members are Elizabeth Hamren and Blake Jorgensen […] Both individuals bring extensive gaming experience that Alta Fox believes Hasbro’s Board needs.”– Monness Crespi Hardt (April 8, 2022)  Analysts Support the Board’s Actions  Source: Wall Street researchNote: Permission to use quotes neither sought nor obtained  “This morning, we got a sense of what HAS thinks is “higher caliber” as it has named two individuals to its board, both of whom come with stellar credentials. The first add is Elizabeth Hamren. She has Microsoft Xbox credentials and also happens to be a games enthusiast. The other add is Blake Jorgensen, who has served previously as the COO and CFO at Electronic Arts. Any way you slice it, these two meet the test of being high caliber adds.”– Gordon Haskett (April 4, 2022) 
 


 Hasbro’s Management Looks to the Board on a Number of Key Topics  Key Industry Experience  IndustryRelationships  Understanding of emerging games and entertainment business modelsExperience with executing large consumer products, gaming and entertainment related investmentsAnalysis and valuation of brand equity, media libraries, rights management processes and consumer licensingImplementation of multi-hundred million dollar consumer marketing, promotion and channel management plansManagement of physical supply chains, complex channel relationships and consumer-based demand planningEmerging trends, talent, startups and sources of capital across entertainment, interactive media and direct-to-consumer  Introduce management to emerging opportunities while also providing perspective on investment alternatives and risksRelationships with key executives, investors, outside advisors and partners across games, entertainment, consumer products and direct-to-consumer  HR, Finance, Accountingand ESG  Experience in management, compensation, culture and talent development, recruiting and retention at a large creative-oriented organizationUnderstanding of typical accounting and tax principles for a global play & entertainment businessProvide guidance on ESG best practices as it relates to Hasbro’s various businesses and employees  Hasbro believes that each director on the Board provides critical expertise and insight across these key areas,and does not believe that the 3 Alta Fox nominees bring these skills to Hasbro 
 


 Alta Fox Seeks to Replace Hasbro’s Highly Qualified Directors with Individuals Lacking Relevant Experience  Alta Fox’s slate of nominees does not posses relevant industry experience for Hasbro’s Board  It is maybe no surprise that Alta Fox’s nominees have limited qualifications related to Hasbro’s long-term success since Alta Fox’s stated goal is to push a spin-off of Wizards that would not create valueAlta Fox’s nominees would only serve to disrupt and distract the company from executing its strategic plans for the future of HasbroNone of Alta Fox’s nominees brings relevant industry expertise to support Chris Cocks in his new position as CEO, and their nominations show that Alta Fox’s interests are not aligned with Chris’ vision for the company  Alta Fox’s Nominees Lack Corporate and Business Experience Across Consumer Products, Entertainment and Gaming,All of Which are Critical to Hasbro’s Long-Term Success  Currently Director at TecsysBackground is narrowly limited to marketing in the enterprise software spaceNo experience in consumer businesses, which are Hasbro’s core audience and fan segments  Currently Director at KuvareExperience is strictly limited to insurance / financial servicesNo experience leading or growing consumer businesses, nor relevant expertise in gaming, consumer products or entertainment  Currently CFO at IDT Corp.Primarily brings legacy telecom and personal care experienceParticipated in numerous spin-offs as senior vice president – finance (not as CFO of the company)  Rani Hublou  Carolyn Johnson  Marcelo Fischer 
 


 Alta Fox’s Proposal to Spin Off Wizards of the Coast Would Not Create Value for Shareholders  Hasbro’s Board has independently and carefully considered the appropriateness of a spin-off of Wizards and concluded that a spin-off of Wizards would not create value for shareholdersIn the Board’s view, a spin-off of Wizards would limit growth and result in meaningful missed strategic and financial opportunities for both Wizards and the Hasbro business overall, in contrast to Alta Fox’s thesisIn reviewing Alta Fox’s proposal for a Wizards spin-off, the Board noted that:Alta Fox’s analysis assumed a significant multiple expansion for Wizards through reference to fundamentally flawed and inappropriate benchmarks that should not be used as a basis for strategic decision-makingAlta Fox’s analysis fails to account for significant, quantifiable dis-synergies that would result from a separation, including the shift from an owned to a third-party content creation model, duplicative overhead costs and the material cost of executing a spin-offAlta Fox also fails to account for the impact of non-quantifiable dis-synergies, including missed opportunities to maximize the full value of Wizards IP through Hasbro’s other capabilitiesMany shareholders have expressed the view that a spin-off of Wizards would be the wrong move for Hasbro 
 


   Alta Fox’s Valuation Analysis for Wizards is Fundamentally Misinformed and Relies on Inappropriate Comparisons  Source: Bloomberg and FactSet as of May 12, 2022  Alta Fox’s Valuation Analysis isNot Analytically Sound …  … And Ignores Current Market Conditions,Instead Anchoring on Much Higher Multi-Year Averages  “We view 20x NTM EBITDA, [Games Workshop’s] average 2-year multiple, as the floor for [Wizards’] fair valuation.As [Wizards] executes on its digital initiatives, we believe its multiple could mover closer to true SaaS – or even that of ‘video game ecosystem’ peers, implying a 30-50x NTM EBITDA multiple.We value [Wizards] at 23x EBITDA, a premium to GAW, but a meaningful discount to true video game ecosystem players. However, this could prove to be conservative as the company continues to execute on digital initiatives.”– Alta Fox Presentation (2/17/22)    Toys & Games  ComparableCompanies  Video Games  Tabletop Games  Software  2-Year Avg.NTM EV/EBITDA  CurrentNTM EV/EBITDA  Hasbro Notes  Alta Fox Analysis  Current Market Observations  10x  16x  20x  26x  8x  12x  12x  19x          Hasbro’s consolidated multiple is already above other toy companies  Comparing to Digital Games companies is flawed given Wizards largely analog business  Games Workshop briefly traded at outsized multiple before returning to norm  Very different business model and industry    In-line withHasbro

 Hasbro’s Strategy Creates Greater Opportunity  Hasbro pioneered the multigenerational play & entertainment strategy,and today it is increasingly the model for success  Hasbro’s acquisition of eOne remains a highly strategic transactionnotwithstanding unfortunate timing  Owned entertainment capabilities are a critical component of Hasbro’s strategy with many strategic and financial benefits  With the consumer as north star, Hasbro’s iconic portfolio of brands is poised for growth  Hasbro has a robust near-term multigenerational play & entertainment pipeline  Wizards is thriving under Hasbro’s ownership 
 


 Hasbro Pioneered the Multigenerational Play & Entertainment Strategy  “Empowered with the story and visual work, the team employed a unique process to develop something we call the brand creative blueprint. This blueprint allows the brand story to inform and enhance both the transmedia opportunities, the actual TV publishing, et cetera, as well as the trans merch potential, toys, games, digital gaming, and all other license categories. Crafting the story and planning the merchandising and media opportunities at the same time enables Hasbro to maximize any brand's true commercial potential … So imagine Hasbro's potential as we dive into the deep portfolio of our powerful brand.”– Brian Goldner, Hasbro’s 2009 Investor Day (November 5, 2009)

While still at an early stage, we are very excited about the progress we are making.”– Chairman & CEO  “As I think about the future of the industry, I do believe that we will start to see entertainment coming together … [our players] play our games more than any other form of entertainment, but they also consume linear media and scripted entertainment and sports broadcast and music and other things … we're also aware that our fans are expecting us to find new and interesting ways for them to experience entertainment … as we think about the future, you should think about it with IP at the center and engagement around play, watch, create and experience all built on a deep social ecosystem that brings fans together around the content they love”– Chairman & CEO  Mattel1  Electronic Arts3  Spin Master2

We believe MTG and D&D have the greatest media potential and content will come to market in the near future.”– Monness Crespi Hardt (Feb. 22, 2022)  “We challenge the activist's claim that the brand blueprint is misaligned with shareholder interests. We see the blueprint as a brand activation method and a commercial assessment tool, not a capital allocation model … the blueprint is a critical mechanism to uniquely pathway each brand to market. Should capital be biased toward higher-growth, higher-margin franchises – undoubtedly yes. That's the business, not the blueprint.”– Jefferies (Feb. 18, 2022)

 Alta Fox Campaign is Misinformed and Ill-Timed  Hasbro believes that:  Alta Fox’s campaign is built on flawed assumptions and a poor understanding of Hasbro’s business, most importantly Wizards  Alta Fox’s campaign is ill-timed  Alta Fox’s valuation analysis for Wizards in fundamentally misinformedand relies on inappropriate comparisons  Alta Fox lacks conviction in its investment thesisand is seemingly fixated on value destructive transactions  Alta Fox’s nominees have limited qualifications for Hasbro’s Board and lack relevant industry experience across all of Hasbro’s future growth areas 
 


 Alta Fox’s Campaign is Built on Flawed Assumptions and a Poor Understanding of Hasbro’s Business  Alta Fox lacks an understanding of Hasbro’s business, including, most significantly, Wizards  Alta Fox’s Inaccurate Claims on Wizards  Hasbro Reality  “[Alta Fox believes] Hasbro has shackled [Wizards] by running the segment as a cash cow, limiting its internal reinvestment opportunities and diverting its cash flow to invest in margin-dilutive Hasbro-related business lines.”  Hasbro’s Board has overseen over $1 billion invested in Wizards in the last 5 years to meet its funding needsAs a result, Wizards revenue doubled in size over a three-year period (2018-2021) and increased revenue 42% to $1.28 billion in 2021 aloneMAGIC: THE GATHERING revenue alone grew 150% over the last 5 yearsWizards’ exceptional track record – a result of the successful partnership between Chris and the Board – is a strong example of Hasbro’s successful investment approach  “The Board has misallocated a significant portion of [Hasbro’s] research and development budget, to the detriment of attractive reinvestment opportunities within Wizards of the Coast's core franchises.”

 Alta Fox’s Campaign to Separate Wizards is Poorly Timed   Alta Fox began buying Hasbro stock just days after the passing of Hasbro’s long-time leader Brian Goldner and went public 8 days before Chris Cocks’ CEO appointment became effective  The Board clearly recognized the importance of Wizards to overall Hasbro and Chris Cocks’ strong performance-oriented leadership when they appointed him as Hasbro’s new CEOBoard had been actively engaged in succession planning prior to Chris' appointmentHaving assumed the CEO role only 8 days after Alta Fox publicly launched their attack, Alta Fox did not give Chris any time to ramp up in the seat and pursue his vision for the consolidated business No one is better positioned than Chris to get the full benefit of the Brand Blueprint for WizardsHistorical Wizards performance under Chris’ leadership was strong, and the Board believes Hasbro should see how Chris' impact on the company will generate returns in excess of what a separated Wizards and Consumer / Entertainment RemainCo could achieve  Wizards & Digital Gaming Revenue ($M)  Wizards & Digital Gaming Operating Profit ($M)  '19-’21 CAGR:+30%   '19-’21 CAGR:+36%   38.7%  46.4%  42.5%  Operating Profit Margin 
 


 Alta Fox Lacks Clarity and Conviction in its Thesis  Alta Fox’s actions demonstrate its lack of understanding, as evidenced by waffling on its core namesake thesis to spin off Wizards  “Free the Wizards” (February 2022)  “Strengthen Hasbro” (May 2022)

A subsequent report alleged IDT’s 5G licenses were obtained by “fraudulent misrepresentation.” Straight Path subsequently entered into an FCC consent decree, agreeing to pay a $15 million civil penalty and sell all its 5G licenses. A shareholder lawsuit relating to these matters is currently awaiting trial.Genie Energy Ltd., Zedge Inc. and Rafael Holdings Inc. all disclosed material weaknesses in internal controls following their respective spin-offs from IDT. In Zedge’s case, this led to a restatement of results.Alta Fox failed to disclose to Hasbro that it has an ongoing business relationship with Fischer’s IDTIn September 2021, IDT sold a 2.5% stake in its National Retail Solutions (“NRS”) subsidiary to Alta Fox for $10 million.

Home Our Board & Leadership Shareholder Resources How To Vote Vote for Hasbro’s Board of Directors Hasbro’s highly skilled Board, with expertise and experience directly relevant to overseeing Hasbro’s world class portfolio of assets across multiple play and entertainment categories, is maximizing value for all shareholders.



Alta Fox is attempting to install three dissident director nominees who lack any relevant industry expertise to push an agenda to spin off the Wizards of the Coast business (‘‘Wizards’’). We believe this proxy fight is ill-timed, Alta Fox’s agenda will not create value for shareholders and its nominees offer no beneficial experience to Hasbro’s Board or the Company. Alta Fox’s campaign, which began just days after the passing of our long-time CEO Brian Goldner, is a distraction at a time when our new CEO should be given a chance to focus solely on our business for the benefit of all our stakeholders. The proposal to spin off Wizards would not create value and illustrated clear misunderstandings of our significant investment (over $1 billion in the last five years), support from the Board in growing the Wizards business (150% growth in MAGIC: THE GATHERING alone in the last five years), benefits Wizards receives from being part of Hasbro and the ability of our Brand Blueprint strategy to drive the future performance of Wizards and the entirety of Hasbro’s business. Chris Cocks’s specific combination of expertise in both the Wizards business and the next generation of gaming makes him ideally positioned to develop, in conjunction with the Board, the strategy for the future of Hasbro. The Board fully supports Chris and believes that, given the opportunity to execute with such support, his forward-looking, consumer-focused strategy and gameplan will help create and drive long-term shareholder value in the best interests of ALL shareholders. Vote the WHITE proxy card to support the Hasbro Board of Directors at the Company’s annual meeting of shareholders on June 8, 2022. Total shareholder return since Hasbro instituted the Brand Blueprint strategy 279%1 Board members with digital gaming, media or consumer products expertise 12 of 13 Amount invested in growing Wizards of the Coast over the last 5 years, driving 150% growth in MAGIC: THE GATHERING alone >$1 billion 1 vs. 245% returned by the S&P 500 Consumer Durables index; 5/22/2008 through 4/22/2022



A Word from Hasbro’s Board and CEO Richard S. Stoddart Char of the Board “I know I can speak for our full Board when I Say we are thrilled to work closely with Chris to continue our traffic momentum and maximize value for our shareholders. He is absolutely the right choice to lead Hasbro at this time. The skills and experiences of our current Board perfectly complement Chris’s passion for gaming, the consumer, multi-generational play and an exceptional ability to drive growth. It’s truly a winning team.” Meet the Hasbro Board. Chris Cocks Chief Executive Officer “The Board has been a great partner for me as President of wizards of the Coast. They constantly push me to think bigger and have a growth mindset. They have really challenged me and the entire team to generate the highest and biggest ROI impact for our fans and for our shareholders. As CEO I’ve had nothing but a great experience with them in my first hundred days since being announced. They’ve been very supportive of the new strategy shift that we’re trying to drive and the big strategy review that we have under way with the senior management team.”  Read Our Letters to Shareholders



The Board of Directors operates with the best interests of ALL shareholders in mind as evidenced by the thorough succession planning process that identified Chris Cocks as Hasbro’s new CEO. Hasbro’s Board and management team regularly engage with our shareholders to hear their viewpoints regarding our Board of Directors and broader corporate strategy. We are very disappointed that Alta Fox continues to be more interested in chasing headlines and making a name for its founder and fund than engaging constructively. It has used a cherry-picked narrative that is not representative of the actions our Board has taken to try to constructively and quickly resolve this matter in the best interests of all shareholders. Our Board has independently and carefully considered the appropriateness of a spin-off of Wizards and found that a spin-off of Wizards would not create value for all shareholders. In our view it would limit growth and result in meaningful missed strategic and financial opportunities for both Wizards and the Hasbro business overall, in contrast to Alta Fox’s thesis. We encourage shareholders to support Chris in executing in his new role, employing the Wizards gameplan at Hasbro and enacting his vision, along with the full support of our highly skilled, diverse, proven and recently refreshed Board.
