Takeaway: New data, updated thoughts. SABR remains on our LONG Bench

THIS IS HOW WE ARE THINKING THROUGH SABR:

Our 3Q topline is ahead 5% / our 4Q topline is below -3% and 1Q19 is -7% below as we are inflecting from cyclical beat + raise to beat + miss (and maybe miss + miss after that).

PROBLEMS WITH THE STOCK ARE CYCLICAL:

  • Deflating Y/Y comps on core TN business are cyclical, have a chance to buy in ~Jan post re-set
  • Post 3Q18 comping quarters absent Y/Y improvement in OCF driven by August 2017 RIF
  • End of multiple quarters of lower capex to sales, comps get tougher from here

BULLISH PART IS SECULAR:

  • New technologies and architectures give SABR a shot at equalizing the winning in the airline technology category against large rival Amadeus
  • FCF growth is new, real, and has many avenues for growth from the 2018 ~$450MM towards $750MM in 2022. The change makes acquisitions, acceleration, and balance sheet recovery all possible

We are on the sidelines waiting for a ~January ‘free look’ at this stock which we think materializes after two consecutive revenue resets (on guidance). After that we think it will be off to the races.
