EVP Procurement Rex Clothier offers commentary on Hasbro's strategy in the post Toys-R-Us world, and how the risks of the retailer's bankruptcy also enabled an opportunity as other retailers stepped up to grab a bigger share of the toy market.
Major risk event:
Toys R Us' decision to liquidate all stores and inventory.
Demand planning and S&OP to optimize retail channels.
Hasbro is expected to recuperate sales and revenue next year, as the blow from Toys R Us liquidation slowly wears off.
