Barrington Research analysts commented, "We have ticked lower our EBITDA estimate, which is now $(93) million, down from $(91) million. Full‐year cash flow generation should improve relative to 2017 as sub levels increase and ad revenue trends improve." (3/8/2018) 3. Macquarie analysts commented, "We model 1Q revenue/adj. EBITDA of US$301m/- US$91m, reflecting a trough 1Q while our cumulative 2Q-4Q ’18 adj. EBITDA improves meaningfully vs ‘17 in line with guidance. Our target remains US$5. Impact We model ’18/’19 adj. EBITDA of -US$120m/US$26m; we expect P will return to profitability in 4Q18 and achieve positive annual EBITDA in ’19. This is reflected by ongoing cost initiatives: 1) normalizing content costs, though ad LPMs will fluctuate in the short term due to minimum guarantees; 2) increasing direct sales, which have a better margin profile than app store sales; 3) better balancing the mix of ad- supported/subscription; and 4) expanding into non-music content starting with Podcasts. Overall, we model opex as a % of revenue lower in ’18 vs ’17; our G&A expense is lower YoY however our S&M/product development costs are slightly elevated in ’18 driven by new products/investments in ad tech."
