Activist investor calls on Hasbro to sell Entertainment One

May 3, 2022

23 minutes ago An activist investor at Hasbro has reportedly told the toymaker to sell off the multinational entertainment company Entertainment One (eOne). According to a letter obtained by the WSJ, Ancora Holdings – which owns a 1% stake in Hasbro – has said that it wants the company to explore a full or partial sale in order to cut debts. The letter also calls on Hasbro to replace a number of long standing board directors. The letter goes on to claim that the divesture of Entertainment One could generate US$2 billion for the company while also resulting in tax benefits. It also argues that eOne does not fit in well with Hasbro’s overall business, and that it could use the proceeds from a sale elsewhere. Hasbro agreed a deal to acquire eOne in late 2019 for US$3.8 billion, with the deal closing in early 2020 . It saw the toymaker acquire lucrative properties such as the worldwide phenomenon that is Peppa Pig, and added to a library which contains IP including My Little Pony, Transformers and Monopoly. Ancora is not the only Hasbro stakeholder agitating for change at the company. Fellow activist investor Alta Fox Capital Management last week called on Hasbro to oust two directors and chairperson Richard S. Stoddart, while also spinning-off its Wizards of Coast Unit. This call was rejected by Hasbro, but Ancora also has now said that it should explore alternatives for the Dungeons & Dragons and Magic: The Gathering publisher.
