Investment summary

Headline FY22 results indicated revenue (€351.6m) was marginally ahead of our expectations (€350.4m) but the achieved net loss of €35.1m was below management’s recently reduced guidance of a loss of €25–29m due to events after the balance sheet date, which led to a re-measurement of player registrations. The company is well-placed to deliver an improved financial performance in FY22/23 if further COVID-19 related restrictions can be avoided. Our forecasts are under review and will be updated following the publication of full financial statements. Our last-quoted valuation of €9.8/share suggested significant upside in a normalised operating environment.

Industry outlook

Unsustainable spend on wages and transfers is increasingly being penalised by UEFA Financial Fair Play requirements. A ‘break-even requirement’ 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.
