Deadline Alert: The Law Offices of Howard G. Smith Reminds Investors of Looming Deadline in the Class Action Lawsuit Against Hasbro, Inc.

BENSALEM, Pa., Nov. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Law Offices of Howard G. Smith reminds investors of the November 27, 2018 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class action filed on behalf of investors that purchased Hasbro, Inc. (“Hasbro” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: HAS) securities between April 24, 2017 and October 23, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Hasbro investors have until November 27, 2018 to file a lead plaintiff motion.

Investors suffering losses on their Hasbro investments are encouraged to contact the Law Offices of Howard G. Smith to discuss their legal rights in this class action at 888-638-4847 or by email to howardsmith@howardsmithlaw.com.

On October 23, 2017, Hasbro announced its third quarter 2017 financial results. Hasbro’s CEO stated that “[a]s a result of the Toys 'R' Us bankruptcy filing in the U.S. and Canada, there was a negative impact on our quarterly revenues and operating profit.” On this news, shares of Hasbro fell $2.94, or 22%, to close at $89.75, on October 23, 2017, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that Hasbro made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Hasbro's relationship with Toys "R" Us was becoming increasingly important to Hasbro's business, but that Toys "R" Us was in far worse financial condition than was being publicly reported; (2) Hasbro was experiencing significant undisclosed adverse sales issues in two key markets—the United Kingdom and Brazil—which were negatively impacting Hasbro's efforts to grow sales in those markets; and (3) as a result of the foregoing, defendants' statements about Hasbro's business and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

If you purchased shares of Hasbro during the Class Period you may move the Court no later than November 27, 2018 to ask the Court to appoint you as lead plaintiff if you meet certain legal requirements. To be a member of the Class you need not take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent member of the Class.
