Upgrading Nine Entertainment's Fair Value Estimate

Brian Han Director

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Brian Han |

Amid COVID-19 uncertainties, we are impressed by Nine's progress on factors within its control. The balance sheet is strong, and advertising conditions are improving from the dark days of COVID-19 impact. Critically, management is not letting a good crisis go to waste. It has cut significant costs in response to COVID-19. In addition, it has stepped up efforts on the three-year AUD 150 million structural cost-out initiative and is now targeting AUD 230 million by the end of fiscal 2024. It also struck news content supply deals with Facebook and Google in June 2021. It is a long-awaited finalisation, which puts a financial dimension to the compensation regime with the digital platform giants.
