Liberty Media Reports Fourth Quarter and Year End 2013 Financial Results

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Liberty Media Corporation ("Liberty Media") (Nasdaq: LMCA, LMCB) today reported fourth quarter and year end 2013 results. Highlights include(1):

  • SiriusXM reported strong Q4 results
    • Subscriber base grew to 25.6 million
    • Revenue of $1 billion, up 12% from the fourth quarter of 2012
    • Adjusted EBITDA(2) grew 41% to $326 million
    • Net income of $65 million
    • Repurchased $1.8 billion in shares in 2013, including shares from Liberty Media
    • Affirmed 2014 guidance: revenue of over $4 billion, Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $1.38 billion, net subscriber additions of approximately 1.25 million and free cash flow(2) approaching $1.1 billion
  • Completed sale of first tranche of Liberty Media owned SIRI shares to SiriusXM in November 2013 for a total of $160 million
  • Announced proposal to acquire the remaining equity of SiriusXM not owned by Liberty Media
  • Live Nation reported record performance in 2013 with revenue up 11% to $6.5 billion and profitability in operating income of $140 million
  • Repurchased 5.8% of LMCA outstanding shares in 2013

"SiriusXM again posted record results for the fourth quarter and full year 2013. Jim and his team continue to execute on the core business while addressing new customer segments and offering enhanced services," said Greg Maffei, President and CEO of Liberty Media. "In January, we announced a proposal to acquire the rest of the SiriusXM equity not owned by Liberty. We believe this combination will simplify the capital structure, further align management and provide ultimate strategic and financial flexibility. We are responding to requests for information from the representatives of SiriusXM's special committee."

Liberty Media

Liberty Media acquired its controlling interest in SiriusXM on January 18, 2013 and has applied purchase accounting and consolidated the results of SiriusXM since that date. Prior to the acquisition of Liberty Media's controlling interest, we accounted for the investment in SiriusXM using the equity method.

Liberty Media's revenue increased $981 million to $1.0 billion in the fourth quarter and $3.6 billion to $4.0 billion for the year. Adjusted OIBDA increased $343 million to $319 million for the fourth quarter and $1.3 billion to $1.3 billion for the year. Operating income increased $249 million to $189 million for the fourth quarter and $894 million to $814 million for the year. The increase in revenue, adjusted OIBDA and operating income was primarily due to the acquisition of a controlling interest in SiriusXM as discussed above.

SiriusXM

SiriusXM reported its stand-alone fourth quarter and year end results on February 4, 2014. For presentation purposes, in this release, we include below the results of SiriusXM, as reported by SiriusXM, without regard to the purchase accounting adjustments applied by us for purposes of our financial statements. Liberty Media believes the presentation of financial results as reported by SiriusXM is useful to investors as the comparability of those results are best understood in the context of SiriusXM's historical financial presentation. For a reconciliation of revenue, adjusted OIBDA (as defined by Liberty Media) and operating income for SiriusXM's stand-alone operating results as reported by SiriusXM, to those results as reported by Liberty Media, see Liberty Media's Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013.

Highlights of SiriusXM's earnings release included the following:

  • 2013 record revenue of $3.8 billion, up 12%
  • Net income of $377 million in 2013
  • Adjusted EBITDA climbs 27% in 2013 to $1.17 billion
  • 2013 free cash flow(2) of $927 million, up 31%
    • Operating Cash Flow of $1.1b in 2013
  • Fourth quarter revenue exceeds $1 billion, Adjusted EBITDA climbs 41%

All such amounts are representative of SiriusXM's stand-alone operating results and are not indicative of what is included in Liberty Media's financial statements due to certain purchase accounting adjustments resulting from our January 18, 2013 acquisition of SiriusXM. SiriusXM is a separate publicly traded company and additional information about SiriusXM can be obtained through its website and filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

On October 9, 2013, Liberty Media entered into a share repurchase agreement with SiriusXM in which SiriusXM will acquire 136.6 million SiriusXM shares for $500 million, in three separate tranches between the fourth quarter of 2013 and second quarter of 2014, at a price of $3.6603 per share. The repurchase of shares will approximate 2% of the outstanding shares of SiriusXM on an as adjusted basis as the shares will be retired at the SiriusXM level. The first tranche of shares in the amount of 43.7 million was repurchased on November 14, 2013. The retirement of SiriusXM shares on a consolidated basis is not expected to significantly impact the consolidated results except for an adjustment to noncontrolling interest as the shares are repurchased and retired. Liberty Media expects to continue holding a majority of the SiriusXM common stock after the completion of share repurchases.

On January 3, 2014, Liberty Media made a proposal ("the Proposal") to SiriusXM that outlines the terms by which SiriusXM public shareholders would become shareholders of Liberty Media in a tax-free transaction in which each share of SiriusXM common stock would be converted into 0.0760 of a new share of Liberty Media Series C common stock, and, immediately prior to such conversion, Liberty Media intends to distribute, on a 2:1 basis, shares of Liberty Media's Series C common stock to all holders of record of Liberty Media's Series A and B common stock to create a liquid trading market for Liberty Media's Series C common stock. The foregoing exchange ratio would be equivalent to a 0.0253 exchange ratio prior to the distribution of the Liberty Media Series C common stock dividend. Upon the completion of the proposed transaction, Liberty Media expects that SiriusXM's public shareholders would own approximately 39% of Liberty Media's then-outstanding common stock. SiriusXM's Board of Directors has formed a special committee of independent directors to consider Liberty Media's proposal. The transaction is subject to the approval of both the special committee and a majority of the public stockholders of SiriusXM, other than Liberty Media. Approval by the existing Liberty Media shareholders of the issuance of the Series C common shares in the proposed transaction is also required under applicable Nasdaq Stock Market requirements.

In connection with the pending proposal made to SiriusXM, Liberty Media and SiriusXM agreed on January 23, 2014 to defer the second tranche of SiriusXM's repurchase of $240 million of its shares of common stock from Liberty Media pursuant to the share repurchase agreement from January 27, 2014 to April 25, 2014 (the final repurchase date pursuant to the share repurchase agreement). As a result of this deferral, SiriusXM would repurchase $340 million of its shares of common stock from Liberty Media on the final repurchase date.

Share Repurchases

There were no repurchases of Liberty Media common stock (Nasdaq: LMCA) from November 1, 2013 through January 31, 2014. Since reclassification of original Liberty Capital tracking stock on March 3, 2008, Liberty Media has repurchased 66 million shares for a total cash consideration of $2.9 billion, representing 51% of shares outstanding at time of introduction of original Liberty Capital stock(3). Liberty Media has approximately $327 million remaining under its current stock repurchase authorization.

Total Liberty Media cash and liquid investments decreased $83 million, primarily as a result of payments related to the Comcast exchange transaction and acquisitions during the quarter. These cash outflows were partially offset by cash from operations at SiriusXM during the quarter and net borrowings in excess of repayments during the quarter. Included in the year end consolidated cash and liquid investments is $135 million at SiriusXM. Although SiriusXM is a consolidated subsidiary, it is a separate public company with a significant noncontrolling interest; therefore Liberty Media does not have ready access to that cash.

Total Liberty Media debt increased by $734 million primarily as a result of the issuance of the Liberty 1.375% cash convertible notes during the quarter, net of other debt repayments made.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

SCHEDULE 1

This press release includes a presentation of adjusted OIBDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, for Liberty Media, together with a reconciliation to operating income, as determined under GAAP. Liberty Media defines adjusted OIBDA as revenue less operating expenses, and selling, general and administrative expenses, excluding all stock based compensation, and excludes from that definition depreciation and amortization, restructuring and impairment charges and separately reported legal settlements that are included in the measurement of operating income pursuant to GAAP.

Liberty Media believes adjusted OIBDA is an important indicator of the operational strength and performance of its businesses, including each business' ability to service debt and fund capital expenditures. In addition, this measure allows management to view operating results and perform analytical comparisons and benchmarking between businesses and identify strategies to improve performance. Because adjusted OIBDA is used as a measure of operating performance, Liberty Media views operating income as the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Adjusted OIBDA is not meant to replace or supersede operating income or any other GAAP measure, but rather to supplement such GAAP measures in order to present investors with the same information that Liberty Media's management considers in assessing the results of operations and performance of its assets. Please see the attached schedules for applicable reconciliations.

The following table provides a reconciliation of adjusted OIBDA for Liberty Media to operating income calculated in accordance with GAAP for the three months ended December 31, 2012, March 31, 2013, June 30, 2013, September 30, 2013, December 31, 2013, respectively, and the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2013.

SCHEDULE 2

This press release also includes a presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure used by SiriusXM, together with a reconciliation to SiriusXM's stand-alone net income, as determined under GAAP. SiriusXM defines Adjusted EBITDA as follows: EBITDA is defined as net income before interest and investment income (loss); interest expense, net of amounts capitalized; income tax expense and depreciation and amortization. SiriusXM adjusts EBITDA to remove the impact of other income and expense, loss on extinguishment of debt, loss on change in value of derivatives, as well as certain other charges discussed below. This measure is one of the primary non-GAAP financial measures on which SiriusXM (i) evaluates the performance of its businesses, (ii) bases its internal budgets and (iii) compensates management. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial performance measure that excludes (if applicable): (i) certain adjustments as a result of the purchase price accounting for the merger of Sirius and XM, (ii) depreciation and amortization and (iii) share-based payment expense. The purchase price accounting adjustments include: (i) the elimination of deferred revenue associated with the investment in XM Canada, (ii) recognition of deferred subscriber revenue not recognized in purchase price accounting, and (iii) elimination of the benefit of deferred credits on executory contracts, which are primarily attributable to third party arrangements with an OEM and programming providers. SiriusXM believes Adjusted EBITDA is a useful measure of the underlying trend of SiriusXM's operating performance, which provides useful information about its business apart from the costs associated with its physical plant, capital structure and purchase price accounting. SiriusXM believes investors find this non-GAAP financial measure useful when analyzing its results and comparing its operating performance to the performance of other communications, entertainment and media companies. SiriusXM believes investors use current and projected Adjusted EBITDA to estimate its current and prospective enterprise value and to make investment decisions. Because SiriusXM funds and builds-out its satellite radio system through the periodic raising and expenditure of large amounts of capital, its results of operations reflect significant charges for depreciation expense. The exclusion of depreciation and amortization expense is useful given significant variation in depreciation and amortization expense that can result from the potential variations in estimated useful lives, all of which can vary widely across different industries or among companies within the same industry. SiriusXM also believes the exclusion of share-based payment expense is useful given the significant variation in expense that can result from changes in the fair value as determined using the Black-Scholes-Merton model which varies based on assumptions used for the expected life, expected stock price volatility and risk-free interest rates.

Adjusted EBITDA has certain limitations in that it does not take into account the impact to SiriusXM's statements of comprehensive income of certain expenses, including share-based payment expense and certain purchase price accounting for the merger of Sirius and XM. SiriusXM endeavors to compensate for the limitations of the non-GAAP measure presented by also providing the comparable GAAP measure with equal or greater prominence and descriptions of the reconciling items, including quantifying such items, to derive the non-GAAP measure. Investors that wish to compare and evaluate SiriusXM's operating results after giving effect for these costs, should refer to net income as disclosed in its consolidated statements of comprehensive income. Since Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial performance measure, SiriusXM's calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may be susceptible to varying calculations; may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies; and should not be considered in isolation, as a substitute for, or superior to measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. The reconciliation of SiriusXM's stand-alone net income to Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as follows (in thousands):
