The American toy manufacturer Hasbro has done unexpectedly good business in the past quarter, partly thanks to toys inspired by the films Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home. Net profit declined, but that was due to a one-off write-off due to the completion of a long-term pension conflict.

Total revenue increased by 9 percent in the second quarter compared to the same period a year earlier to $ 985 million. In addition to the blockbuster successes made by superhero films, Hasbro also benefited from the comeback of Magic: The Gathering. The card game from the nineties is nowadays popular again due to the new edition as an online game.

Net profit fell from 60 million to 13 million dollars. Without the one-off item due to the pension conflict, however, there was a 65 percent increase to more than $ 99 million.

For the second half of the year, Hasbro says he is also in good shape. Around the holidays, a few films will be released with which the company expects to score again, such as Frozen 2 and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
