Q4 Results. The company reported Q4 revenue of $864.0 million, edging our estimate of $857.0 million by 0.8%. Notably, Adj. EBITDA in the quarter was a strong $216.0 million, surpassing our estimate of $189.0 million by 14.3%. The results are illustrated in Figure #1 Q4 Results. The quarter was driven by lower than expected operating expenses. Importantly, the company is anticipating a favorable influx of high margin political revenue in 2024.

2024 outlook. In our view, the company stands to benefit from several favorable factors in 2024. Notably, we are forecasting $655.0 million in high margin political revenue for full year 2024, which should aid the company in its debt reduction efforts. Additionally, the company’s production companies are guided to produce $110.0 million in revenue in 2024, a step up from $86 million in 2023. We believe there could be positive upside in our 2024 estimates.
