Item 2.05    Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.

On October 4, 2022, Hasbro, Inc. (the “Company” or “Hasbro”), announced the results of its nine-month strategic review. The Company identified opportunities to focus and scale the business, enhance operational excellence, including through organizational and supply chain programs, and drive accelerated growth and profit. Hasbro plans to focus investment on its most valuable and profitable franchises across toys, games, entertainment and licensing, and to exit certain non-core aspects of the business. Under this plan, the Company plans to deliver annual run-rate cost savings of $250 million to $300 million by the end of 2025. The Company expects to generate $150 million in annual run-rate savings by year end 2023.

To achieve these savings, the Company expects to incur approximately $200 million in cash charges through 2024, with approximately $20 million paid in 2022, $120 million paid in 2023, and the balance of $60 million paid in 2024.

In the third quarter of 2022, the Company expects to incur pre-tax restructuring charges relating to severance and other employee costs and advisor fees of approximately $30 million, as well as non-cash charges of approximately $30 million related to the sale or disposal of non-strategic businesses. These businesses do not constitute a material part of the Company’s operations.
