Madison Square Garden Entertainment Corp. Reports Fiscal 2024 Third Quarter Results

MSGE) ("MSG Entertainment" or the "Company") today reported financial results for the fiscal third quarter ended March 31, 2024.

The fiscal 2024 third quarter was highlighted by the continued strength of the Company's bookings business, led by robust growth in the number of concerts held at the Company's venues. With these positive results, the Company remains on track to achieve a low double-digit percentage increase in the number of bookings events in fiscal 2024. During the fiscal 2024 third quarter, the Company also continued to host the New York Knicks ("Knicks") and New York Rangers ("Rangers") 2023-24 regular season home games at the Madison Square Garden Arena ("The Garden"), which included five additional Knicks home games as compared to the prior year quarter.

Financial results for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2024 reflect the Company on a fully standalone basis. Results for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2023, which were prior to the spin-off from Sphere Entertainment Co. ("Sphere Entertainment"), are presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") for the preparation of carve-out financial statements. These prior year results do not include all of the expenses that would have been incurred by MSG Entertainment had it been a standalone company for the periods presented. Therefore, results for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2024 are not fully comparable with results for the prior year period.

For the fiscal 2024 third quarter, the Company reported revenues of $228.3 million, an increase of $27.1 million, or 13%, as compared to the prior year quarter. In addition, the Company reported operating income of $16.8 million and adjusted operating income of $38.5 million, decreases of $7.9 million and $11.6 million, respectively, as compared to the prior year quarter.(1)

Executive Chairman and CEO James L. Dolan said, "Our business continues to outperform our original expectations for fiscal 2024, and we are on track to generate robust growth in our first full year as a standalone public company. Looking ahead, we remain confident in the strength of our assets and our ability to generate long-term value for our shareholders."

See page 4 of this earnings release for the definition of adjusted operating income (loss) ("AOI") included in the discussion of non-GAAP financial measures. The Company has amended this definition so that the non-cash portion of operating lease revenue related to the Company's Arena License Agreements with Madison Square Garden Sports Corp. ("MSG Sports") is no longer excluded in all periods presented, as well as in the Company's financial guidance. For full year fiscal 2024, the non-cash portion of operating lease revenue is expected to be $25.3 million, which is now included in the current AOI range of $200-210 million and in the prior AOI range of $195-205 million. For the three and nine months ended March 31, 2024, the non-cash portion of operating lease revenue was $13.2 million and $22.8 million, respectively, and for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2023 the non-cash portion of operating lease revenue was $12.1 million and $25.1 million, respectively.

Entertainment Offerings, Arena License Fees and Other Leasing(2)
Fiscal 2024 third quarter revenues from entertainment offerings of $146.2 million increased $17.0 million, or 13%, as compared to the prior year period, primarily due to higher event-related revenues and revenues subject to the sharing of economics with MSG Sports pursuant to the Arena License Agreements.

  • Event-related revenues increased $10.7 million, as compared to the prior year quarter, primarily due to an increase in the number of concerts at the Company's venues, partially offset by the absence of a marquee sporting event that took place in the prior year quarter.
  • Revenues subject to the sharing of economics with MSG Sports pursuant to the Arena License Agreements increased $6.8 million, primarily due to higher suite license fee revenues as compared to the prior year quarter.

Fiscal 2024 third quarter arena license fees and other leasing revenues of $36.7 million increased $4.7 million, or 15%, as compared to the prior year period, primarily due to higher arena license fees, the result of five more Knicks games played at The Garden, as compared to the prior year quarter.

Fiscal 2024 third quarter direct operating expenses associated with entertainment offerings, arena license fees and other leasing of $113.0 million increased $22.7 million, or 25%, as compared to the prior year quarter. The increase reflected higher event-related expenses of $12.0 million, primarily due to the increase in the number of concerts at the Company's venues and, to a lesser extent, higher per-concert expenses, both as compared to the prior year quarter. In addition, expenses associated with the sharing of economics with MSG Sports pursuant to the Arena License Agreements increased $6.0 million, primarily due to higher expenses incurred as a result of the increase in suite license fee revenues, while venue operating costs increased $2.6 million, both as compared to the prior year quarter.

Food, Beverage and Merchandise(2)
Fiscal 2024 third quarter food, beverage and merchandise revenues of $45.4 million increased $5.4 million, or 14%, as compared to the prior year period. This was primarily due to the increase in the number of concerts held at the Company's venues and the impact of five more Knicks home games, as compared to the prior year period, partially offset by lower per-concert food and beverage revenues, which reflects a mix shift to more concerts at the Company's theaters during the current year quarter.

Fiscal 2024 third quarter food, beverage and merchandise direct operating expenses of $29.0 million increased $4.2 million, or 17%, as compared to the prior year quarter, primarily driven by the related increase in food and beverage revenues.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses
Fiscal 2024 third quarter selling, general and administrative expenses of $53.9 million increased $9.8 million, or 22%, as compared with the prior year period. Fiscal 2024 third quarter results reflect the Company on a fully standalone basis. Results for the fiscal 2023 third quarter reflect the allocation of corporate and administrative costs based on the accounting requirements for the preparation of carve-out financial statements. These results do not include all of the expenses that would have been incurred by MSG Entertainment had it been a standalone company in the prior year period. This was the primary driver of the overall increase in selling, general and administrative expenses, partially offset by the impact of the Company's transition services agreement with Sphere Entertainment Co.

Operating Income and Adjusted Operating Income
Fiscal 2024 third quarter operating income of $16.8 million decreased $7.9 million, or 32%, and adjusted operating income of $38.5 million decreased $11.6 million, or 23%, both as compared to the prior year quarter. The decrease in operating income and adjusted operating income was primarily due to higher selling, general and administrative expenses as discussed above.

(2)

Effective for the third quarter of fiscal 2024, the Company modified its presentation of revenues and direct operating expenses. As a result of this new disclosure, total revenue is now presented in three categories consisting of i) Revenues from entertainment offerings, ii) Food, beverage and merchandise revenues, and iii) Arena license fees and other leasing revenues. In addition, total direct operating expenses is now presented in two categories consisting of i) Entertainment offerings, arena license fees and other leasing direct operating expenses and ii) food, beverage, and merchandise direct operating expenses. Prior period financial information has been revised to conform with the current period presentation.

Financial Guidance
As a result of the positive momentum across its operations, the Company is narrowing its fiscal 2024 guidance for revenues and increasing its fiscal 2024 guidance for operating income and adjusted operating income. The Company currently expects the following:

  • Revenues of $940 million to $950 million, as compared to its prior range of $930 to $950 million.
  • Operating income of $100 million to $110 million, as compared to the prior range of $95 to $105 million.
  • Adjusted operating income of $200 million to $210 million, as compared to the prior range of $195 to $205 million. The Company's AOI range now includes approximately $25 million in non-cash operating lease revenue related to the Company's Arena License Agreements with MSG Sports.(3)

_________________

(1)

This adjustment represents non-recurring costs incurred and paid by the Company for the sale of the retained interest by Sphere Entertainment Co.

(2)

The Company has amended the definition of adjusted operating income so that the impact of the non-cash portion of operating lease revenue related to the Company's Arena License Agreements with MSG Sports is no longer excluded in all periods presented. Pursuant to GAAP, recognition of operating lease revenue is recorded on a straight-line basis over the term of the agreement based upon the value of total future payments under the arrangement. As a result, operating lease revenue is comprised of a contractual cash component plus or minus a non-cash component for each period presented. Adjusted operating income includes operating lease revenue of (i) $22,372 and $38,610 of revenue collected in cash for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2024, respectively, and $19,014 and $39,234 of revenue collected in cash for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2023, respectively, and (ii) a non-cash portion of $13,216 and $22,831 for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2024, respectively, and $12,149 and $25,078 for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2023, respectively.
