Wide-Moat Constellation’s 2024 Beer Outlook Tempers Near-Term Promise, but Brands Still Carry Cache

Jaime M. Katz Senior Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Jaime M. Katz |

We plan to lower our $274 fair value estimate for wide-moat Constellation by a low-single-digit rate to account for a slower restoration of operating margin in the beer business. Specifically, with faster pricing action initially taken in fiscal 2023, slower price increases are set for deployment in 2024, despite still inflated input costs. In turn, this positions the beer segment for another year with a 38% operating margin, lower than the 39%-40% Constellation believes represents a reasonable long-term rate. We plan for a 39%-plus operating margin again in fiscal 2025, when transient inflation has pruned back, restoring a normalized cost structure. The beer segment remains a disproportionate contributor to valuation given it represents around 75% of sales.

Company Profile STZ

Business Description

Constellation Brands is the largest multi-category alcohol supplier in the U.S. The business is anchored by a portfolio of Mexican beer trademarks, including Corona and Modelo, for which it acquired exclusive and perpetual U.S. ownership from AB InBev. The latter had to divest these rights due to antitrust mandates as it consummated its 2013 acquisition of dominant Mexican brewer, Grupo Modelo. Constellation’s wine/spirits business has recently transitioned, divesting several lower-margin assets, including myriad wine brands and its Ballast Point craft beer brand. The firm imports most products after manufacturing them abroad, going to market through independent wholesalers. It owns 36% of Canopy Growth, a leading provider of medicinal and recreational cannabis products.
