Six Flags' Reid-Anderson says on track to select new CEO ahead of target

Six Flags (SIX) CEO James Reid-Anderson said earlier on the company's Q3 earnings call: "Regarding the CEO transition process, our Board search committee has been proceeding at the anticipated pace, and there continues to be great interest in the role with an outstanding group of candidates. We are on track to make the CEO selection ahead of the February 2020 target date, and our Board hopes to announce a final decision in the near future."

Jefferies doesn't see Six Flags paying over $68 per share for Cedar Fair
The potential acquisition of Cedar Fair (FUN) by Six Flags Entertainment (SIX) brings "modestly positive" outcomes from a financial perspective, but more profound benefit strategically, Jefferies analyst David Katz tells investors in a research note. The potential merger with, if true, is more transformative than Six Flags' prior deals, adds the analyst. His broad assumptions include a $68 per share offer for Cedar Fair based on a neutral enterprise value to EBITDA multiple to Six Flags. Cedar Fun closed Thursday up $1.33 to $61.05. Said differently, the analyst assumes Six Flags would not pay higher than its current valuation of 10.3 times estimated 2020 EBITDA. Katz keeps a Hold rating on Six Flags with a $57 price target.

Six Flags an aggressive buy as Cedar Fun deal very unlikely, says Wells Fargo
While no specific comment was made regarding the Reuters article of Six Flags Entertainment (SIX) making a bid, Cedar Fair (FUN) management stated that the company is not looking to be sold, Wells Fargo analyst Timothy Conder told investors last night in a research note. Cedar Fair management conducted scheduled one-on-one meetings earlier in the week and has scheduled meetings next week, but did not participate in a conference yesterday based on counsel's advice, adds the analyst. The company has previously chosen not to convert to a C-Corp as this would involve either trigging a substantial tax bill for unitholders, or the tax bill being borne by the new C-Corp in the form of higher go forward tax rates, "neither of which is acceptable," says Conder. The analyst believes this same dilemma would face Six Flags in the event of an acquisition. For his part, Conder has yet to find any type of multiple stock class structures that would work and avoid the ability to defer a transactional tax bill to either unitholders or the surviving C-Corp. In addition, Six Flags launched a repricing of its $798M term loan due 2026 on September 30, Conder points out. It would be "strange that the company would do this ahead of a major acquisition bid," he says. As such, the analyst reiterates his view that a Six Flags acquisition of Cedar Fair is "highly unlikely." He also believes the recent pullback in Six Flags shares is "overdone and unwarranted." Candor would be an "aggressive" of Six Flags ahead of what he expects will be "solid" Q3 results from both companies. And if the recent buyout talk subsides, the analyst sees only a "modest" $2-$3 per share give back in Cedar Fun. He keeps an Outperform rating on both stocks.

Overweight
Keybanc says bid near $85 per share would be hard for Cedar Fair not to consider
After Reuters reported that Cedar Fair (FUN) has rejected a $70 stock-and-cash offer made by Six Flags (SIX) as too low, Keybanc analyst Brett Andress said his conversations with Cedar Fair lead him to conclude that the company is not for sale, "but everything does have a price." He thinks a bid near $85 per share would be "hard for Cedar Fair unitholders to turn down (or at least seriously consider)," Andress tells investors. While a theoretical $85 bid might be "doable," it would require a massive amount of equity "and this $85 scenario is still a far stretch," said the analyst, who admits that he "also thought SIX's initial idea to even approach FUN was a stretch." Andress has Overweight ratings on both Six Flags and Cedar Fair shares.
