Spotify’s Q3 Results Displayed Strength in Both Users and Monetization; Increasing FVE to $216

Analyst Note

| Ali Mogharabi |

We are increasing our Spotify fair value estimate to $216 from $207. While we long have been expecting strong ad revenue growth and its contribution to margin expansion toward double digits in the long run, we were still impressed with Spotify’s third-quarter ad revenue growth, which we think is indicative of even stronger ad revenue growth in the future. On the music side, we were impressed with listener monetization growth during the quarter, the first growth in five years. While we don’t think Spotify has an economic moat source, growth in listeners and monetization bodes well for the firm’s top and bottom lines.
