We attended the company's recent analyst meeting. We were impressed with management's articulation of its longer term internal and external growth strategy ' especially the importance of (1) its data analytics and (2) the network effect of acquisitions. Management squarely addressed many of the key questions investors have been asking for the past six months. We think the additional, granular detail supports MTN's current valuation ' at 13x 2017E EBITDA and a 4% underlying FCF yield, clearly expectations are high.Path for multi-year earnings growth. MTN management provided more detail than we expected on its internal and external growth strategy. We see a path for multi-year earnings growth and industry outperformance, driven by the following drivers: (1) increased customer data and more sophisticated analytics, (2) increased Epic Pass penetration, (3) continued network effect from (i) recent and (ii) additional acquisitions, (4) continued rollout of Epic Discovery summer and (5) development opportunities, and continued investment in resort amenities."
