EntertainmentOne posts £44mln loss ahead of Hasbro acquisition

EntertainmentOne is set to be acquired by Hasbro in a £3.3bn all-cash transaction on Thursday

Entertainment One -

Less than one week away from its planned acquisition by Hasbro Inc, Entertainment One Group (LON:ETO) posted a £44mln quarterly loss because of lower revenues and higher costs.

The Peppa Pig owner is set to be gobbled up in a £3.3bn all-cash transaction on Thursday 17 October after the deal was accepted by the FTSE 250 group’s shareholders.

Losses before tax rose sixfold in the three months until 30 June as revenues slipped 7% to £173.1mln because of lower broadcast and licensing revenues due to fewer scripted projects in the period.

EOne said this was “partly offset by higher music revenue” from its £178.8mln acquisition of music publisher Audio Network in April.

Shares were slightly down at 561.5p in early trading on Friday, after soaring to highs of 585p in August.
