  • 2. Macquarie analysts commented, "We model ’18 sponsorship and ad revenue/AOI of US$501m/US$315m. Ticket sales are up 5% YTD vs double-digits in Feb. ’17, driven by a lower stadium mix; Live expects mid-single-digit growth in ’18. Ticketmaster is in growth mode as Live focuses on Verified Fan/mobile, building its inventory, and adding new clients. In ’17, 33% of tickets were sold through mobile apps, proof that its investments are paying off. We remain confident in its NFL partnership despite headlines around individual teams partnering with SeatGeek, and view Amazon’s temporary shutdown of its ticketing business as favorable. We model ’18 ticketing revenue/AOI of US$2.1bn/US$403m and concert revenue/AOI of US$8.3bn/US$225m. The AOI/FCF conversion continues to improve, now at ~60%: Capex is expected to be US$250m, with 50% allocated to revenue generating projects. We model ’18 FCF of US$538m." (3/1/2018)
