Madison Square Garden Entertainment (NYSE: MSGE) stands out as a compelling investment opportunity, due to its growth prospects through FY24 and FY25.

This confidence is buoyed by the company’s strong operational performance, substantial secular tailwinds, and investor-friendly capital return policies.

Recent Performance Highlights

MSGE has witnessed a notable uptick in its share price following a strong operating performance. The company reported revenues of $403 million, surpassing consensus expectations and reflecting a 13% year-over-year growth.

This surge is attributed to an increased number of concerts hosted across its venues and elevated per-event revenues. Adjusted EBIT stood at $151 million, primarily fueled by this revenue increase, underscoring MSGE’s potential to meet or exceed FY24 forecasts.

Forward Momentum

The company’s trajectory is particularly promising, with management signaling a low double-digit percentage increase in event bookings for FY24.

This optimism is rooted in the visibility into upcoming original concert bookings, suggesting a record year for concert bookings at The Garden.

Moreover, concert bookings for the first half of FY25 at The Garden are pacing ahead by a notable double-digit percentage compared to the same period last year, illustrating sustained growth momentum.

Demand Dynamics

The underlying demand for MSGE’s offerings remains strong, evidenced by the Christmas Spectacular’s record-breaking FY24 run, which generated $149 million in revenue.

This performance indicates a full recovery to pre-COVID-19 pandemic levels, supported by strong ticket sales without the need for discounts.

Furthermore, concert ticket sales for 2H24 have surged by a double-digit percentage year over year, with several venues experiencing sold-out runs and additional shows due to high demand.

Strategic Financial Management

MSGE has demonstrated prudent financial stewardship, notably repaying the remaining balance of its revolving credit facility to facilitate future share repurchases. Since its spin-off in April, MSGE has reduced its Class A shares outstanding by approximately 10%, with $110 million remaining under its current buyback authorization, reflecting a solid track record of capital return to shareholders.

Valuation and Growth Prospects

The valuation model places MSGE at $51, representing a 28% potential increase. This target price is grounded in a projected 10% growth rate over the next two years, buoyed by 2Q24’s performance and clear visibility into FY24/25.

Adjusted margin expectations for FY24 have been revised to 19%, with anticipation of a margin expansion to 21% in FY25, reinforcing the rationale for MSGE’s premium valuation.

Potential Risks

While the outlook for MSGE is optimistic, potential risks loom, primarily tied to the global economic climate.

Conflicts such as the Russia/Ukraine and China/Taiwan situations, among others, could precipitate major supply shocks akin to those experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic, potentially dampening consumer spending and impacting demand for MSGE’s offerings.

Clear Growth Trajectory

In summary, Madison Square Garden Entertainment presents a robust buy opportunity, anchored by its impressive 2Q24 performance and clear growth trajectory into FY24 and FY25.

The anticipated booking increases and strong demand, coupled with effective financial management and promising margin improvements, position MSGE favorably for premium valuation. However, investors should remain vigilant of global economic uncertainties that could influence the broader demand environment
