Mattel shares skyrocket more than 20% on report of Hasbro takeover interest

Mattel, the maker of Barbie and Hot Wheels, has been struggling to boost sales. Mattel's stock surged on the news, while Hasbro saw a 3% bump in after-hours trading.

Mattel's stance toward Hasbro at this time is not clear, and it remains far from certain that a deal will materialise, the source said, asking not to be identified because the matter is confidential.

Toymaker Hasbro Inc has made a takeover approach for rival Mattel Inc, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday. It blamed some of the decline on the recent bankruptcy filing of retailer Toys R Us Inc.

One analyst in the toy industry said that both companies would enjoy benefits from merging, but stockholders at Mattel may oppose such a deal that valued their company on a recently depressed share price. Hasbro has My Little Pony and Monopoly. Conversely, Hasbro shares have increased 8 percent bringing its market value to an impressive $11.4 billion.
