We were very pleased with the first Sprint event and look forward to the next one in Monza, and we continue to prove, despite the challenges presented by the pandemic, that we can adapt and find solutions for the remainder of the season.”

Primary F1 revenue represents the majority of F1’s revenue and is derived from (i) race promotion revenue, (ii) media rights fees (formerly referred to as broadcasting fees) and (iii) sponsorship fees.

Beginning January 1, 2021, F1 began reclassifying certain components previously reported in Other F1 revenue into Primary F1 revenue to better align with the way it currently evaluates the business. In addition, broadcasting revenue was renamed media rights revenue. The more significant components that were reclassified into Primary F1 revenue include fees for F1 TV subscriptions, fees for licensing commercial rights for Formula 2 and Formula 3 races, fees for the origination and support of program footage, fees for broadcast rights for Formula 2 and Formula 3 races and fees for advertising rights on Formula 1’s digital platforms. Following the reclassification, Other F1 revenue is primarily comprised of freight and hospitality revenue. $3 million of Other F1 revenue was reclassified as Primary F1 revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2020 to conform to the current period presentation. The impact of the revenue reclassification for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2020 can be found in Schedule 3 of this press release.

There were seven races held in the second quarter of 2021, compared to no races held in the second quarter of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Fan attendance continues to be assessed by relevant government authorities on a race-by-race basis. A very limited number of fans were in attendance and there was no Paddock Club hospitality at races in the second quarter. While final decisions are pending for most upcoming events, fan capacity increased beginning in the third quarter and the Paddock Club hospitality resumed operations beginning with the Austrian Grand Prix on July 4th.

Primary F1 revenue increased in the second quarter with growth in race promotion, media rights and sponsorship fees. This was due to the recognition of race specific and season-based income with seven races held in the second quarter of 2021 compared to no races in the prior year period. Media rights fees also benefited from growth in F1 TV subscription revenue.

Other F1 revenue increased in the second quarter due to certain event-related activities associated with the seven races held in the current period compared to no races held in the prior year period, including higher freight, media and technical services, travel and Formula 2 and Formula 3 income. Licensing revenue also increased due to new contracts.

Operating loss decreased and adjusted OIBDA(2) increased in the second quarter. Cost of F1 revenue increased primarily due to the recognition of team payments in the second quarter, as such payments are recognized pro rata with the race calendar and no races were held in the prior year period.  Other cost of F1 revenue is largely variable in nature and mostly relates to revenue opportunities. These costs increased in the second quarter due to seven races taking place, which drove higher technical, travel, freight and logistics, Formula 2 and Formula 3 and other related costs. The proportionate recognition of a full year of FIA fees also contributed to the increase in other cost of Formula 1 revenue during the second quarter. Selling, general and administrative expense increased due to higher personnel cost as no bonus was accrued in the prior year period, as well as increased marketing expense.

The Liberty SiriusXM Group holds an approximate 2.2% intergroup interest (5.3 million notional shares) in the Formula One Group as of July 31, 2021. These shares are not included in the outstanding share count of Formula One Group in Liberty Media’s most recent Form 10-Q. Assuming the issuance of the shares underlying this intergroup interest, the Formula One Group outstanding share count as of July 31, 2021 would have been 237 million.

The businesses and assets attributed to the Formula One Group consist of Liberty Media’s subsidiary F1, its interest in Liberty Media Acquisition Corporation, other minority investments and an inter-group interest in the Braves Group.

BRAVES GROUP - The following table provides the financial results attributed to the Braves Group for the second quarter of 2021. In the second quarter, approximately $1 million of corporate level selling, general and administrative expense (including stock-based compensation expense) was allocated to the Braves Group.

There were 42 home games played in the second quarter of 2021 compared to no home games played in the comparable prior year period as the 2020 regular season was delayed until July of that year. The 2021 regular season began with fans in attendance at 33% capacity for the first home game beginning April 9th, which increased to 50% capacity beginning April 23rd and further expanded to 100% capacity beginning May 7th.

Baseball revenue is comprised of (i) ballpark operations (ticket sales, concessions, corporate sales, retail, suites, premium seat fees and postseason), (ii) local broadcast rights and (iii) national broadcast rights, licensing and other shared MLB revenue streams. Development revenue is derived from the Battery Atlanta mixed-use facilities and primarily includes rental income.

Baseball revenue increased in the second quarter driven by the home games played in the current year and the recognition of revenue related to all primary sources of revenue, compared to no home games played in the comparable prior year

period. Development revenue increased during the second quarter due to a reduction in deferred payment arrangements as well as increases in rental income from various new lease commencements.

Operating income and adjusted OIBDA increased in the second quarter. Revenue growth more than offset increased operating costs as player salaries and facility and game day expenses returned to more normalized levels in the current year. Selling, general and administrative expense increased primarily due to higher marketing expense.

The Formula One Group holds an approximate 11.1% intergroup interest (6.8 million notional shares) and the Liberty SiriusXM Group holds an approximate 3.7% intergroup interest (2.3 million notional shares) in the Braves Group as of July 31, 2021. These shares are not included in the outstanding share count of the Braves Group in Liberty Media’s most recent Form 10-Q. Assuming the issuance of the shares underlying these intergroup interests, the Braves Group outstanding share count as of July 31, 2021 would have been 61 million.

The businesses and assets attributed to the Braves Group consist primarily of Liberty Media’s subsidiary the Braves, which indirectly owns the Atlanta Braves Major League Baseball Club, three Professional Development League clubs, FCL Braves and certain assets and liabilities associated with the Braves’ ballpark and mixed-use development project.

Share Repurchases

From May 1, 2021 through July 31, 2021, Liberty SiriusXM Group repurchased approximately 2.3 million Series C Liberty SiriusXM shares (Nasdaq: LSXMK) at an average cost per share of $44.98 for total cash consideration of $103 million and repurchased approximately 887 thousand Series A Liberty SiriusXM shares (Nasdaq: LSXMA) at an average cost per share of $42.45 for total cash consideration of $38 million.

The total remaining repurchase authorization for Liberty Media as of August 1, 2021 is $766 million and can be applied to repurchases of Series A and Series C shares of any of the Liberty Media Corporation tracking stocks.

a)Includes $67 million and $1.1 billion of cash, liquid investments and restricted cash held at SiriusXM as of March 31, 2021 and June 30, 2021, respectively.
b)Includes restricted cash held in reserves pursuant to the terms of various financial obligations.
c)Includes $429 million and $537 million of cash and liquid investments held at Formula 1 as of March 31, 2021 and June 30, 2021, respectively.  
d)Outstanding principal amount of Senior Notes with no reduction for the net unamortized discount.
e)Face amount of the cash convertible notes and exchangeable debentures with no fair market value adjustment.
f)Includes SiriusXM revolving credit facility.

Liberty Media, SiriusXM, Formula 1 and Braves Holdings are in compliance with their debt covenants as of June 30, 2021.

Total cash, liquid investments and restricted cash attributed to Liberty SiriusXM Group increased $512 million in the second quarter. Cash from operations at SiriusXM and net borrowings more than offset capital expenditures, return of capital at both SiriusXM and Liberty SiriusXM and approximately $384 million paid to the Formula One Group to settle the Live Nation call spread issued in connection with the reattribution between Liberty SiriusXM Group and Formula One Group in April 2021.  

Included in the cash, liquid investments and restricted cash balance attributed to Liberty SiriusXM Group at June 30, 2021 is $1.1 billion held at SiriusXM.  Although SiriusXM is a consolidated subsidiary, it is a separate public company with a significant non-controlling interest, therefore Liberty Media does not have unfettered access to SiriusXM’s cash balances.  Liberty SiriusXM Group received $46 million of dividends from SiriusXM during the quarter.  

Total debt attributed to Liberty SiriusXM Group increased $977 million during the quarter driven by net borrowings at SiriusXM. In June 2021, SiriusXM issued $2.0 billion principal amount of 4.0% senior notes due 2028. A portion of the net proceeds were used to repay borrowings outstanding under its credit facility, and SiriusXM used the remaining proceeds to fund the redemption of its 3.875% senior notes due 2022 after quarter-end. On August 2, 2021, SiriusXM priced an offering of $1.0 billion aggregate principal amount of 3.125% senior notes due 2026 and $1.5 billion aggregate principal amount of 3.875% senior notes due 2031. SiriusXM intends to use the net proceeds, together with cash on hand and borrowings under its credit facility, to redeem all of its 5.375% senior notes due 2026 and all of its 4.625% senior notes due 2024.

Total cash and liquid investments attributed to the Formula One Group increased $442 million during the quarter primarily due to proceeds received in the settlement of the Live Nation call spread and cash from operations at F1. Total debt at

10


Formula One Group decreased $178 million in the quarter due to private repurchases of certain of Liberty Media’s 2.25% AT&T exchangeable senior debentures (the “AT&T exchangeable debentures”). The AT&T exchangeable debentures are subject to an optional put / call date on October 5, 2021. In a series of individually negotiated private purchases in April and May 2021, Liberty Media repurchased $176 million principal amount of the AT&T exchangeable debentures funded primarily with the sale of 5.3 million shares of AT&T as well as cash on hand. As of June 30, 2021, there is approximately $25 million principal amount of AT&T exchangeable debentures outstanding and Liberty Media owns approximately 800 thousand shares of AT&T.

Total cash, liquid investments and restricted cash attributed to the Braves Group increased $13 million during the quarter driven by cash from operations and additional borrowing, partially offset by capital expenditures related to the mixed-use development. Total debt attributed to the Braves Group increased $18 million in the quarter driven by increased borrowing to fund the mixed-use development and drawdowns on the team revolver. During the second quarter, the Braves refinanced their ballpark term loan with a $46 million revolving credit facility. The credit facility is fully funded as of June 30, 2021. The second phase of the Battery Atlanta mixed-use development is currently on-time and on-budget. It is expected to cost approximately $200 million, of which the Braves and affiliated entities have already funded approximately $55 million in equity and $103 million in debt, with approximately $42 million incremental debt funding remaining.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES AND SUPPLEMENTAL DISCLOSURES

SCHEDULE 1

To provide investors with additional information regarding our financial results, this press release includes a presentation of Adjusted OIBDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, for the Liberty SiriusXM Group, the Braves Group and the Formula One Group, together with reconciliations to operating income, as determined under GAAP.  Liberty Media defines Adjusted OIBDA as operating income (loss) plus depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, separately reported litigation settlements, restructuring, acquisition and other related costs and impairment charges.

Liberty Media believes Adjusted OIBDA is an important indicator of the operational strength and performance of its businesses by identifying those items that are not directly a reflection of each business’ performance or indicative of ongoing business trends.  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.  

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 June 30, 2020 and June 30, 2021, respectively.
