Investment summary

While the simultaneous loss of key players Hummels, Mkhitaryan and Gündogan necessarily invites caution, coach Tuchel’s record of player development and the availability of significant funds for reinvestment make for exciting opportunity. Understandably, given squad rebuilding, financial implications are uncertain. However, assuming maintained positive sporting prospects and estimated player spend of over €100m (broadly in line with estimated transfer proceeds), we still look for a doubling in pre-transfer EBITDA (our key metric) in FY17, albeit from a reduced base in the face of inflationary wage pressure (we are lowering EBITDA forecasts by €6m for FY16 and by €13m for the year just started). Preliminary FY16 results are due on 19 August.

Industry outlook

Unsustainable spend on wages and transfers is increasingly being penalised by new UEFA Financial Fair Play requirements. Notwithstanding a phased implementation, a 'break-even requirement' applied initially to 2012 financial statements, obliges 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, fines and a cap on wages and squad size.
