Unclear if reported MGA bid is premium for Mattel, says Jefferies

The "loose" offer for Mattel by MGA Entertainment, according to press reports, was creatively constructed to bind the two entities using MGA's estimated $400M-plus in EBITDA with forgiveness of a multi-hundred million dollar lawsuit between the companies as equity, Jefferies analyst Stephanie Wissink told investors earlier in a research note. It is not clear that the implied post-deal value is a premium to current Mattel shareholders, added the analyst, who admits she's "largely indifferent" to the stock at $11. The analyst keeps a Hold rating on the name. Mattel (MAT) in morning trading is up 8% to $11.63. Its peer Hasbro (HAS) is up 61c to $106.29.

MGA Entertainment bid for Mattel faces 'uphill battle', says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Michael Swartz kept his Hold rating on Mattel after last night's LA Times report that the company rejected a merger proposal from MGA Entertainment for the 2nd time this year and 3rd time since 2015. The analyst notes that the takeover was predicated on MGA Entertainment CEO Isaac Larian likely taking over as CEO, which would result in the removal of Mattel's entire board. Swarts further contends that consummation of the deal would be an "uphill battle" even in the presence of "material synergies" between the companies given the regulatory challenges and financial leverage assumption, since Mattel's current debt load stands at over $2.8B.

Mattel price target lowered to $20 from $23 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Gerrick Johnson lowered his price target on Mattel to $20 after attending the company's Toy Fair analyst event. The analyst states that while he is "encouraged" by its efforts to reposition business toward profitable growth, the turnaround involving "SKU rationalization,process improvement, cost reduction, and infrastructure investments" could take longer than he anticipated. Longer term, Johnson keeps his Outperform rating on Mattel and believes that the stock still has "value that will continue to be unlocked" amid the management's transformation efforts.

Spin Master licensing deal with Warner negative for Mattel, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Gerrick Johnson says the Friday report of a DC superheroes licensing deal between Toys R Us Spin Master and Warner is a negative for Mattel. While the report has not been confirmed, the analyst believes that the business will be lost after 2019. Longer term, the analyst keeps his Outperform rating and $20 price target on Mattel and believes that its management "can facilitate needed changes in culture, product development, digital content, and partner relationships to drive sales and earnings growth."

Hasbro downgraded to Hold from Buy at Argus
Argus analyst John Staszak downgraded Hasbro to Hold while also lowering his FY19 and FY20 EPS outlook by 10c to $4.40 and $5.00 respectively. The analyst believes that it will be "difficult" for the company to recover revenue lost from the Toys "R" Us bankruptcy, also pointing to rising costs related to new product launches. At 22.9-times his expected FY19 earnings, Staszak sees Hasbro stock as "fully valued" and above the 18-times multiple for "other leisure products companies."

SunTrust analyst Michael Swartz raised his price target on Hasbro to $100 after its Q1 results marked a "solid start to the year." The analyst cautions however that while the performance "shook off doubts" that the company could return to growth in 2019, Q1 earnings can be "extremely volatile and relatively immaterial" to FY results. Swartz is keeping his Hold rating on Hasbro shares.

Hasbro price target raised to $120 from $103 at DA Davidson
DA Davidson analyst Linda Bolton Weiser raised her price target on Hasbro to $120 and kept her Buy rating after its Q1 results, with a 6% constant-currency sales growth driving the 14% sales upside surprise. The analyst says her long-term bullish thesis is "playing out" with the annual growth rate of the company's Entertainment, Licensing & Digital business profits coming at 17% over the past 6 years. Weiser adds that there are few signs of a slowdown given the "outlook for future entertainment productions, Power Rangers licensing royalties, and Magic the Gathering Arena", which is already an 8th ranked e-sports game.
