Imperial Capital maintains its Outperform rating on Planet Fitness Inc (NYSE: PLNT) after the fitness center chain reported solid quarterly results.
Planet Fitness reported fourth-quarter revenue and EBITDA above consensus. The company also guided 2017 revenue consistent with consensus, while EBITDA forecast topped Street.
“We see a lot to like in PLNT; big long-term unit growth potential, steady same-store sales, high incremental margin, and likely de-leveraging. We see added upside should PLNT scale its international operations, raise dues, or add advertising or branded products,” analyst George Kelly wrote in a note.
