Detailed SWOT Analysis of Hasbro

 

Strength

Weakness

1. Major reliance on license agreements and franchisees: Hasbro’s select franchise and partner brands account for the substantial majority of its revenues which increases its business risk. 49% of Hasbro’s aggregate net revenues in 2017 were garnered from its seven franchise brands- LITTLEST PET SHOP, MAGIC: THE GATHERING, MONOPOLY, NERF, MY LITTLE PONY, PLAY-DOH and TRANSFORMERS. A further 24% was derived from key partner brands like DISNEY FROZEN, DISNEY PRINCESS, DREAMWORKS’ TROLLS, YO-KAI WATCH, MARVEL, STAR WARS and BEYBLADE. Hasbro is also highly dependent on Disney, and its ability to create new and exciting characters. Disney owns five of Hasbro’s nine Partner Brands, which represents over 50% of Hasbro’s Partner Brands portfolio and any termination or change in license agreement with Disney may have a major impact on Hasbro’s business.

2. Allegations of poor working conditions in suppliers’ factories hurting the brand: In 2018, there was a report released by campaign groups like Solidar Suisse, ActionAid, CiR and China Labor Watch titled “A Nightmare for Workers”. This report claimed that Chinese Factory workers were being mistreated by major toy making companies like Hasbro by forcing them into “nightmare” working conditions and bringing them in contact with poison and leukemia causing chemicals like benzene. This report was very damaging as it not only severely injured the brand image of Hasbro but also indirectly questioned the integrity of the numerous audits that Hasbro undertook in compliance with its “robust ethical sourcing requirements”.

3. High reliance on third party manufacturers: Hasbro majorly outsources production of its toy and game products through its Global Operations segment. Sourcing for its major production is done through unrelated third party manufacturers in various Far East countries, principally China, using a Hong Kong based wholly-owned subsidiary operation for quality control and order coordination purposes. Thus its sourcing strategy makes it majorly dependent on its suppliers, especially in the Far East.
