Investment summary

Continued Champions League progress in the guise of a quarter-final draw against Real Madrid promises further valuable incremental income (broadcasting and sponsor bonuses) and merchandising potential. The consequent increase of €4m in our pre-transfer EBITDA forecast points to a record outturn at that level in the current year, suggesting the Wembley-led comparative is not an impossible act to follow. Victory over Real Madrid would secure, from UEFA alone, a €4.9m fee for participation in the semi-finals and further income from its broadcast market pool. A pre-transfer EV/EBITDA rating of 6.6x FY14e fits the long-term potential of strong brand development, valuable media rights and positive cash flow.

Industry outlook

Unsustainable spend on wages and transfers will be penalised by new UEFA Financial Fair Play requirements. Notwithstanding a phased implementation, a “break-even requirement” applies initially to 2012 financial statements, obliging clubs to spend no more than they generate over a rolling three-year period. Sanctions vary from a warning to a ban from UEFA competition.
