Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

On September 29, 2022, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Hasbro, Inc. (“Hasbro”) adopted the Second Amended and Restated By-Laws of Hasbro (the “By-Laws”), which became effective the same day. Among other things, the amendments effected by the By-Laws:

adjust the deadline for shareholders to submit business proposals not included in Hasbro’s proxy materials, reducing such period from 150 days prior to the annual meeting to 90 to 120 days prior to the anniversary of the prior annual meeting, thereby conforming such period to the period required to submit director nominations;
clarify Hasbro’s ability to conduct meetings by means of remote communication and the Board’s authority to designate the location for (and to adjourn, postpone, reschedule or cancel any) shareholder meetings;
clarify the powers of the chair of a shareholder meeting to prescribe rules and regulations for the conduct of the meeting and to convene and to recess or adjourn a meeting;
adjust the requirements for calling and providing notice of special meetings of the Board, including permitting such meetings to be called on less than 24 hours’ notice as the person(s) calling such meeting may deem necessary or appropriate in the circumstances; and
enhance the procedural mechanics and disclosure requirements relating to business proposals submitted and director nominations made by shareholders (including, with respect to director nominations, through the exercise of proxy access rights), including by requiring:
certain additional background information, disclosures and representations regarding proposing the shareholders, proposed nominees and business and other persons related to a shareholder’s solicitation of proxies, including in respect of Rule 14a-19 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) (i.e., federal proxy rules regarding the use of “universal” proxy cards in contested director elections);
that any shareholder submitting a nomination provide Hasbro with reasonable documentary evidence five business days prior to the meeting that the representations with respect to Rule 14a-19 under the Exchange Act required to be set forth in such shareholder’s nomination notice have been complied with; and
that disclosures included in a shareholder’s notice of nominations or proposals regarding other business be updated so that they are accurate as of the shareholder meeting record date and as of ten business days prior to the shareholder meeting, with notification of any inaccuracy or change in any such disclosures being provided to Hasbro by such shareholder within two business days of such shareholder becoming aware of such inaccuracy or change.
The By-Laws also incorporate various other updates and technical, clarifying and conforming changes, and changes in furtherance of gender neutrality.
The foregoing description is a summary and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the By-Laws, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 3.1 hereto and is incorporated by reference herein.
