  • Towers: Entering the end game of 3 independent TowerCo.s in Europe
    14 Jan 2022

    We expect the European Towers market to undergo a final phase of consolidation with several large transactions in the next few years and potentially concentrated in 2022, resulting in 3 dominant independent TowerCo.s: Cellnex, Vantage Towers and American Tower Europe as in the US. It is significantly more efficient for MNO.s to share passive infrastructure and Tower transaction valuations have recently risen, allowing MNO.s to generate large capital releases to fund investment in 5G and de-lever balance sheets. Our preferred stock in Towers is Cellnex (TP €106, +145%, raising to no.2/25 pick), well placed to continue to grow acquisitively, raise tenancy and returns. We also rate Inwit (€19.4, +101%) and Vantage Towers (€59, +93%) as BUYS. Further consolidation benefit is not in any of our SOTP valuations.
  • Transactions: Indicate high upside for listed infrastructure
    18 Nov 2021

    Transaction volumes involving our covered companies and other large infrastructure corporates have risen threefold from €20bn pa in 2019-20 to €58bn in 2021, with acquirers preying on listed assets, such as ASPI, Sydney Airport, OMA and IRB. We have reviewed 109 largest transactions in 2015-21, concluding in Transportation Infrastructure listed valuations are at c.30% discounts to transactions based relative to our NAV.s set by DCF.s and share prices need to rise c.40% to close the valuation gap. In Towers listed valuations are similar to transactions as measured by EV/EBITDaL but we see high upside for both to reach our NAV.s.
  • Aena: Commercial: Revenue growth from traffic & mix to drive high FCF returns in 2024-50E
    14 Jul 2021

    We consider Aena’s share price is over discounting temporary low traffic levels due to Covid-19 and not reflecting its high lifetime FCF, mainly from its Commercial division. We estimate MAG discounts broadly in between Aena’s offer and those implied by the traffic decline in 2020-23E but the impact is limited on lifetime FCF. Our Commercial division valuation is driven by our estimated traffic recovery by 2024E, then spend per pax growth, improving traffic mix and high FCF returns on existing and new space in 2024-50E. We raise our TP by €7 to €301.
