MSCI’s Subscription Business Continues to Perform Well

Rajiv Bhatia, CFA Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Rajiv Bhatia, CFA |

Wide-moat-rated MSCI reported a healthy third quarter despite a weak stock market negatively impacting asset-based fees. Revenue grew 7% organically to $561 million, a touch above the FactSet consensus of $559 million. Expense control was strong, and MSCI’s expenses benefited from a stronger U.S. dollar that led to adjusted EBITDA of $341 million and adjusted EPS of $2.85 beating the FactSet consensus of $325 million and $2.71, respectively. Overall, there was little in the third-quarter release that would alter our long-term view of the firm, and we will maintain our fair value estimate of $370 on MSCI’s shares. We regard MSCI’s shares as modestly overvalued.
