On December 9, 2010, Hasbro, Inc. (“Hasbro” or the “Company”) announced that Barbara Finigan had been promoted to Senior Vice President, Chief Legal Officer and Secretary of the Company effective immediately.  Ms. Finigan, age 49, replaces Barry Nagler, who is retiring as Senior Vice President, Chief Legal Officer and Secretary.  

A 19-year veteran of Hasbro, Ms. Finigan has represented the Company in a wide range of commercial transactions, litigation and regulatory matters.  During her tenure she helped establish Hasbro’s employment, product safety and compliance practices as she assumed more responsibility in the Global Legal function.  Prior to her appointment as Chief Legal Officer, Ms. Finigan served most recently as Vice President of Litigation, Employment and Compliance.

A copy of the December 9, 2010 press release, announcing the promotion of Ms. Finigan and the retirement of Mr. Nagler is attached to this report as Exhibit 99.

Mr. Nagler will remain an employee of the Company through February 25, 2011 (his “Retirement Date”).  During this transition period, Mr. Nagler will continue to receive his salary and benefits, including vesting under his equity grants.  Following his Retirement Date, Mr. Nagler’s salary, insurance coverage and medical and dental benefits will be extended through December 31, 2011.  Outstanding contingent stock performance awards held by Mr. Nagler as of his Retirement Date will remain outstanding during the remainder of their performance periods.  A pro-rated portion of any amounts which would otherwise be earned under such awards at the end of the applicable performance periods will be paid to Mr. Nagler at the end of the performance periods, with the pro-ration reflecting the portion of the performance periods which had elapsed as of Mr. Nagler’s Retirement Date.  The Company is also accelerating the vesting of the next tranche of the stock option granted to Mr. Nagler on May 21, 2009.  This tranche for 24,602 shares was scheduled to vest on May 21, 2011, and will become vested as of Mr. Nagler’s Retirement Date.
