The analysts wrote, “We believe Meredith will implement $350 million of TIME’s savings plan, with $200 million of that flowing through to the bottom line. We then estimate Meredith will be able to bring an incremental $110 million of savings to the table (see page 2 for a more detailed breakdown). With TIME’s underlying EBITDA likely down ~$15M/yr annually, plus the synergy flow-through and partially offset by stemming print declines due to Meredith’s enhanced execution, we estimate TIME EBITDA of $673 million after synergies, with Meredith National adding another $125 million. On the revenue side, we expect TIME will finish the year down 18% in print vs. Meredith down 8%. This gulf has existed since TIME “revamped” its sales staff several years ago, and with Meredith running the ship, we expect the gap should narrow over a 36 month period.””
