Program Description

Case For The Cards is a very fun, and rather unusual look at the world of major league baseball (MLB) and how valuation concepts might be used to assess MLB executive organization performance, and the unique factors that contribute to enterprise value for the franchises themselves. One part science, one part art, and a lot of passion and love for the great game. Isolating the St. Louis Cardinals and the Forbes Magazine article on MLB values, we attempt to isolate and critically assess their critical assumptions while filtering them through our template of operating and financial metrics as a sanity check for their reported value outcomes.

Learning Objectives

After completing this webinar, attendees will be able to:

- Identify the primary critical variables—sport, intangible, and media that contribute to enterprise value for an MLB franchise
- Differentiate between value components specific to individual franchises themselves, and other value contributors to MLB as a whole
- Distinguish between mega, medium, and small market teams, and why the critical importance of cable subscriber counts impacts value
- Articulate the potential long-term opportunities and threats that mega-cable deals present to mega, medium, and small market clubs

Who Should Attend

CPA’s, practitioners, and those who want a clearer understanding of the relationship between cable-subscriber counts and MLB value, and why on-field performance is becoming less of a value contributor than it ever has been
