    Announcement: Moody's Says Proposed Offer by Liberty Media to Increase Its Ownership of Sirius XM to 100% is Credit Negative


    Global Credit Research - 07 Jan 2014
    https://www.moodys.com/research/Mood...MMDD_PR_290204

    New York, January 07, 2014 -- Moody's Investors Service said Sirius XM Holdings Inc. ("Sirius") recently announced its Board of Directors received a non-binding letter from Liberty Media Corporation (unrated) proposing a transaction to convert all outstanding shares of common stock of Sirius not owned by Liberty Media Corporation ("Liberty") into the right to receive 0.0760 of new, non-voting shares of Liberty Series C common stock. Immediately prior to a conversion, Liberty would distribute shares of Liberty's Series C common stock to all holders of record of Liberty's Series A and B common stock on a 2:1 basis. Upon the completion of the proposed transaction, Sirius public stockholders would own roughly 39% of Liberty's total equity market cap.
    A Special Committee of independent directors of Sirius will be formed to consider Liberty's proposal. The transaction is conditioned on the approval of both the Special Committee and more than 50% of the minority public shareholders of Sirius. Assuming the proposed transaction is approved, Sirius would become a wholly-owned subsidiary under Liberty. Moody's views this transaction as credit negative given the potential for additional debt to be issued by Sirius, or a new holding company of Sirius, with proceeds to fund investments of Liberty. Management of Liberty has stated that it views Sirius as being under levered and could be more aggressive with its capital structure.
    The issuer comment "Proposed Offer by Liberty Media to Increase Its Ownership of Sirius XM to 100% is Credit Negative" is available on www.moodys.com

    Spencer, I think one of the news agencies or several are reporting wrong numbers. One shows Sirius gained 77934 subscribers in the 3rd quarter, they did not lose 20,000. However, another shows your number. On 9-30-13 SiriusXM ended the quarter with 25,582,066 million subs, today they reported 25,660,000, thats 77,934 more. We need clarification. Dang Below is the PR that shows 25.66 million

    https://www.moodys.com/research/Mood...MMDD_PR_290204 Moodys has it at 25.6 million

    Who knows, I am trying to research it now.

    I guess if you take the 23.9 million that ended 2012 and add 1.66 million net for 2013 , we get the 25.56 million.

    It looks like the net self paying subs increased by 1,070,333 from 2012 to 2013, thats what really counts. they pay (SIRI PR states 1.5 million self pay additions for the year, am I missing something?) I looked at EOY for 2012 and I only show 1 million YOY.

    I think there are some errors in the IR PR. Please let me know what I am missing.

    If SiriusXM had press released incorrect information, they would have posted a correction.

    Sirius XM, Liberty Media CEOs Defend Acquisition Plan

    http://www.billboard.com/biz/article...quisition-plan

    He said there is a "disconnect" because some are accusing Liberty of "stealing" Sirius XM with its offer of $3.68 per share. while some of the same people also "worry about the death of the company because of the connected car."

    "There's no drama here," Meyer told attendees. "Liberty won't do the deal -- which I think, by the way is great -- without the majority of the minority shareholders approving. And I think that's all there is to say."

    Sounds like a done deal to me.

    Not a big fan of the offer but if the offer is going to happen wouldn't it make sense to sell Sirius and buy LMCA A shares. That way you get Class A shares plus the 2 for 1 C shares. If I'm understanding this correctly than ultimately you would end up with more Class C shares than by holding Sirius and in addition have class A shares.

    So, if the majority of the minority don`t approve, then they won`t do the deal . so SIRI stays alone NO????????????? Whats wrong with that ?
