What is escheatment and how do I prevent it?
Escheatment is a process in which property deemed to be abandoned in your shareholder account is turned over to your state of residence (foreign holders to Hasbro’s state of incorporation, Rhode Island).

Computershare, as Hasbro’s transfer agent, is required to comply with state escheatment laws. These are state laws, not policy set by Hasbro or Computershare.

Navigation menu

Your account will become eligible for escheatment if it is coded lost due to repeated undeliverable mailings or if your account becomes dormant, meaning no activity or contact with the transfer agent has occurred in your account for the state’s dormancy periods. Dormancy periods vary from state to state but are generally 3 or 5 years in duration.

Initial Public Offering (IPO) Process

There are a number of ways to prevent dormancy of the assets in your Hasbro account:

  • Contact Computershare to confirm your address is current with them
  • Cash all dividend checks
  • Vote your proxy for every annual meeting or special meeting, if applicable
  • Respond to pre-escheatment notification mailings from Computershare
At least once annually do one of the following:
  • Sending a written request or inquiry to Computershare
  • Call Computershare and use their IVR or speak to a customer service representative
  • Create a login on Computershare’s Investor Center website and log into your account
Important: simply receiving mailings at your current address will not prevent dormancy.

Additionally, many states do not consider dividends directly deposited to a bank account as contact activity preventing account dormancy. The above actions will ensure the property in your shareholder account, which could include dividends and shares, are not escheated.

Please contact our transfer agent, Computershare at 1-800-733-5001 (foreign shareholders at +1 781-575-3400) or online at www.computershare.com/investor. If your shares are held with a broker or other financial institution, we recommend contacting them as well to prevent the potential escheatment of your assets.

Option trading strategies example

What do I do if property in my account has been escheated?
Abandoned or escheated property is turned over to the last known state of legal residence of the owner. To obtain your states contact information, Computershare recommends that shareholders use the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators endorsed website . Property belonging to international shareholders would be turned over to Hasbro’s state of incorporation, Rhode Island.
