The average MLB team is worth $1.54 billion, 19% more than one year ago. Values were driven higher by new local television deals that are increasing at roughly a two-fold rate, as well a surge in profitability. During the 2016 season, baseball's 30 teams posted an average operating income (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) of $34 million, 52% more than the 2015 season (the previous record).
Revenue and operating income figures are for the 2016 season (including playoffs) and are net of revenue sharing, stadium debt payments and MLB's luxury payroll tax. Team values are enterprise values (equity plus net debt). The revenue and expenses of team-owned or operated real estate (stadiums, stores, parking lots, etc.) are included in our valuations when they flow through the team's income statement, but the value of the real estate itself is excluded.
