SiriusXM announced today that the company is seeking to refinance almost $600 million of 7.625% notes due in 2018. The new notes do not yet have an interest rate, but likely it will be about 6% with the debt due in 2020. Essentially this news points to the relative strength that SiriusXM has in the marketplace and to more smart business.
We will see a lower rate with the term extended slightly. On a cash flow basis, the monthly payment will be lower for the company. The bigger positive in this is that the company can likely get rid of certain restrictions that the current notes carry. It is no secret that SiriusXM has been wanting to establish a holding company but has had its hands tied by various restrictions relating to bonds. With better flexibility, the company will have more options as time moves on.
The news comes as SiriusXM tests yet another 52 week high, and is knocking on the door of $4.00 per share.

"SiriusXM finally saw volume on an up day. With 55 million shares traded, we were above the average, and above the previous session. The great news in this is the establishing of a new support level forming strength in the $3.80?s. We now have a moderately strong support level at $3.84. The better news is that below that we have very strong support at $3.72. While it may be tempting to take $3.60 off of the table now, this new dynamic lacks the maturity to allow that. Given some more time, the risk factor of a dip to $3.60 diminishes.
At the moment, the immediate downside risk sits at $3.72 and the upside potential sits at $3.97. The great news is that even a dip down is actually strong and the overall trend is upward.
For the time being, watch the volume. We want to maintain the upward pressure on at least 50 million shares to help cement the building support in the $3.80?s. - charts follow
