Toys R Us may liquidate its bankrupt United States operations, report says

Toys-R-Us making plans to liquidate U.S. operations

Less than two months after a report said Toys "R" Us would close many of its USA stores, a new report said the toy store is considering closing all stores.

Media reports say that Toys R Us could close all 880 of its USA stores after failing to find a buyer or reach an agreement with its creditors.

Sales numbers did not reach the levels Toys R Us told lenders they would reach.

While last year's bankruptcy filing only applied to the company's USA operations, it is struggling overseas as well.

The Canadian unit, which was profitable and growing sales last September when its Wayne, New Jersey-based parent company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, was forced to file for court-based creditor protection because of a shared credit facility with the US parent.

That became apparent on Monday when the stocks of two of the world's biggest toy makers tumbled in USA trading.

Toys R Us has other locations in the Hudson Valley in Poughkeepsie, Middletown and the Woodbury Common Premium Outlets. The latest news signals a chance the company will shutter all of its stores in the United States as well.

Shares of Toys R Us debtholders Hasbro and Mattel saw their stocks fall in after-hours trade Thursday.

Some chalked that up to the struggles at Toys "R" Us, which entered bankruptcy in September. In January, the company announced the closings of 180 Toys R Us locations across the country.

"Without a dedicated toy retailer - 365 days a year - you will see growth in the industry slow", Johnson said.

CNBC says some lenders are asking the company to fully liquidate.

Mattel's shares fell 6 percent to $14.96, while those of Hasbro dipped almost 3 percent to $90.75 in early trading.
