TeamViewer has a 35 million-euro increase in marketing expenses in 2021 due to the Man Utd deal

With the Manchester United deal, TeamViewer has a 35 million-euro increase in marketing expenses in 2021, according to Morgan Stanley analyst George Webb. However, the annual rate might be higher as it only covers the year 2021 and not the 2021-22 season.

Morgan Stanley analyst George Webb says, however, that “from a broader perspective, we believe the marketing exposure TeamViewer will garner from the deal could significantly aid the company’s traction. We would view the share price reaction today as a buying opportunity.”

In the end, the stock closed 10.8% lower than the day before.
