Chris Colvin of Breach Inlet Capital presented his investment thesis on Liberty Braves (US: BATRA, BATRB, BATRK) at Best Ideas 2023.
Liberty Braves is a tracking stock that represents Liberty Media’s ownership in Atlanta Braves Holdings. Holdings consists of the Atlanta Braves baseball team and the real estate surrounding the Braves ballpark (Battery Atlanta).
The Braves is an attractive and unique asset because it is a monopoly with high barriers to entry, recession-resilient, and has multiple secular growth tailwinds.
Liberty Braves trades at a material discount to comparable private market transactions. However, Liberty Media recently announced plans to split off Liberty Braves into a standalone public company to be renamed Atlanta Braves Holdings. This split-off should immediately help close the valuation discount, and the company should then be taken private in 6-24 months at a premium.
