PAWTUCKET, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) today reported financial results for the first quarter 2015. Net revenues for the first quarter 2015 increased 5% to $713.5 million versus $679.5 million in 2014. Excluding a negative $62.6 million impact from foreign exchange, revenues increased 14%.

Net earnings for the first quarter 2015 were $26.7 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, compared to $32.1 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, in 2014. Net earnings for the first quarter 2015 increased 43% versus adjusted net earnings of $18.6 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, in 2014. As reported first quarter 2014 net earnings included favorable tax adjustments of $13.5 million or $0.10 per diluted share.

"2015 is off to a good start with continued momentum in our business, led by growth in all of our Franchise Brands and the underlying strength in demand across international markets, including the emerging markets," said Brian Goldner, Hasbro's President and Chief Executive Officer. "For the first quarter, we grew revenue, improved profitability and delivered growth in adjusted net earnings despite significant foreign exchange headwinds. While the first quarter is the least significant quarter of the year, the global Hasbro team delivered a strong start to the year."

"Our first quarter results highlighted the strength of our brands, our global reach and our balance sheet," said Deborah Thomas, Hasbro's Chief Financial Officer. "Foreign exchange did negatively impact both revenues and earnings in the quarter; however, several factors helped mitigate the negative impact to profitability. These included the continued momentum in our Franchise Brands, the benefit of favorable foreign exchange product cost hedges and a larger contribution of higher-margin Entertainment and Licensing revenues. Our first quarter results keep us on track to achieve our previously stated targets."

Transformers Rising has been through a rollercoaster ride and it doesn't look like it's over just yet. First it was announced, then it was denied a US release, then it was ready for release stateside and now it's delayed again.

Here's what Efun had to say:

for the moment the game is released in Southeast Asia region. We do apologize for the inconvenience we bring. Thanks.


Transformers News: US Release Of Transformers Rising Delayed Indefinitely

The website is currently live and provides links to downloads for both Android and iOS, but the action of downloading was unsuccessful for many who tried and there seems to be no further info available outside of what Efun said above.

Transformers News: US Release Of Transformers Rising Delayed Indefinitely

According to the Transformers: Rising Facebook page, apparently the US version released last week was for English speakers in the Asian areas of the world. The page does confirm that the US version is in development.

We can only hope they'll get the game's issues figured out and that a release will be here as soon as possible, and we'll keep you updated as we find out any new information we get to share with you.
