One that many will have a particular interest in is the slide stating that sirius and XM are anticipating FCC, DOJ as well as shareholder approval in the November/December timeframe.

Sirius Buzz has previously indicated that the date of the shareholder meeting on the merger would be indicative of anticipated regulatory decisions, and today, Karmazin's speech confirmed this.
