__________________________

a)

Includes $90 million and $81 million of amortization related to purchase accounting as of September 30, 2021 and September 30, 2022, respectively, that is excluded from calculations for purposes of team payments.

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

There were seven races held in the third quarters of both 2022 and 2021. There are 22 events scheduled for the 2022 race calendar. Throughout 2021 and particularly in the first half of the season, attendance at races was limited due to the pandemic. Restrictions on fan attendance reduced as 2021 progressed, with all races in the second half of the year operating at either full capacity or with fewer restrictions. The Paddock Club resumed normal operations beginning with the Austrian Grand Prix on July 4, 2021. F1’s results in 2022 are not being impacted by capacity limitations, and throughout the first nine months of the 2022 season F1 has seen strong growth in attendance in the grandstands and the Paddock Club.

Primary F1 revenue increased in the third quarter with growth across media rights and sponsorship, partially offset by a decline in race promotion revenue. Race promotion revenue decreased due to lower fees generated from the different mix of events held, with one additional race held outside of Europe in the prior year period. Media rights increased due to growth in F1 TV subscription revenue and increased fees under new and renewed contractual agreements, and sponsorship revenue increased due to the recognition of revenue from new sponsors.

Other F1 revenue increased in the third quarter primarily due to higher hospitality revenue generated from the Paddock Club, which operated at one additional race in the third quarter of 2022 compared to the prior year period and has seen record attendance year-to-date.

Operating income was flat and adjusted OIBDA(2) decreased in the third quarter. Cost of F1 revenue increased compared to the prior year due to the pro rata recognition of increased team payments. Other cost of F1 revenue is largely variable in nature and mostly relates to revenue opportunities. These costs increased in the third quarter driven by the costs of higher hospitality attendance in the Paddock Club and one additional Paddock Club event operated compared to the prior year period. In addition, other cost of F1 revenue grew due to higher commissions and partner servicing costs associated with the Primary F1 revenue streams and higher Formula 2 and Formula 3 related costs. Selling, general and administrative expense increased in the third quarter due to higher personnel and IT costs and increased legal and other advisory fees.

The Liberty SiriusXM Group holds an approximate 1.8% intergroup interest (4.2 million notional shares) in the Formula One Group as of October 31, 2022. These shares are not included in the outstanding share count of Formula One Group in ݮƵ’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 October 31, 2022 would have been 238 million.

The businesses and assets attributed to the Formula One Group consist of ݮƵ’s subsidiary F1, its interest in ݮƵ 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 third quarter of 2022. In the third quarter, approximately $5 million of corporate level selling, general and administrative expense (including stock-based compensation expense) was allocated to the Braves Group.

Baseball revenue is derived from two primary sources: (i) ballpark event revenue (ticket sales, concessions, advertising sponsorships, suites and premium seat fees) and (ii) broadcasting revenue (including national and local broadcast rights). Development revenue is derived from the Battery Atlanta mixed-use facilities and primarily includes rental income.

There were 38 home games played in the third quarter of 2022, compared to 34 games played in the prior year period. A full 162 game schedule was played in 2022.

Baseball revenue increased in the third quarter due to more home games played and increased ticket demand at regular season games, as well as additional special events including concerts held at the ballpark compared to the period year period. Development revenue increased during the third quarter due to a reduction in deferred payment arrangements and increases in rental income from various new lease commencements.

Operating income and adjusted OIBDA decreased in the third quarter. Increased operating costs due to higher player salaries, higher levels of facility and game day expenses driven by more home games and higher attendance and increased expenses under MLB’s revenue sharing plan more than offset revenue growth. Selling, general and administrative expense increased primarily due to increased special event expenses, marketing initiatives and personnel costs.

The Formula One Group holds an approximate 11.1% intergroup interest (6.8 million notional shares) and the Liberty SiriusXM Group holds an approximate 2.9% intergroup interest (1.8 million notional shares) in the Braves Group as of October 31, 2022. These shares are not included in the outstanding share count of the Braves Group in ݮƵ’s most recent Form 10-Q. Assuming the issuance of the shares underlying these intergroup interests, the Braves Group outstanding share count as of October 31, 2022 would have been 61 million.

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

Share Repurchases

From August 1, 2022 through October 31, 2022, Liberty SiriusXM Group repurchased approximately 276 thousand Series C Liberty SiriusXM shares (Nasdaq: LSXMK) at an average cost per share of $40.54 for total cash consideration of $11 million.

The total remaining repurchase authorization for ݮƵ as of November 1, 2022 is $1.1 billion and can be applied to repurchases of common shares of any of the ݮƵ tracking stocks.

ݮƵ, SiriusXM, Formula 1 and Braves Holdings are in compliance with their debt covenants as of September 30, 2022.

Total cash and cash equivalents attributed to Liberty SiriusXM Group decreased $230 million in the third quarter as cash from operations at SiriusXM and the receipt of cash from the settlement of Braves Group and Formula One intergroup interests described below were more than offset by net debt repayment and return of capital at SiriusXM. Included in the cash and cash equivalents balance attributed to Liberty SiriusXM Group at September 30, 2022 is $39 million held at SiriusXM. Although SiriusXM is a consolidated subsidiary, it is a separate public company with a non-controlling interest, therefore ݮƵ does not have ready access to SiriusXM’s cash balance. Liberty SiriusXM Group received $70 million of dividends from SiriusXM during the quarter.

Total debt attributed to Liberty SiriusXM Group decreased $299 million during the quarter due to net debt repayment at both SiriusXM and Liberty SiriusXM Group. During the third quarter, Liberty SiriusXM Group paid approximately $284 million to repurchase $210 million aggregate principal amount of the 1.375% cash convertible senior notes due 2023. This payment was funded as follows: (i) the receipt of $64 million cash from the Formula One Group in exchange for the cancellation of 1.1 million notional shares underlying a portion on the inter-group interest in the Formula One Group held by Liberty SiriusXM Group, (ii) the receipt of $14 million from the Braves Group in exchange for the cancellation of 0.5 million notional shares underlying a portion of the inter-group interest in the Braves Group held by Liberty SiriusXM Group, and (iii) the receipt of $27 million related to the settlement of the bond hedge and warrants related to the repurchase of the notes. The number and type of notional shares cancelled in the exchange was determined based on the number and type of shares underlying the notes repurchased.

Total cash and cash equivalents attributed to the Formula One Group increased $175 million during the quarter due to cash from operations at F1 and net debt issuance. Total debt at Formula One Group increased $261 million in the third quarter. On August 12, 2022, Liberty issued $475 million aggregate principal amount of 2.25% FWONK convertible notes due 2027. The notes will mature on August 15, 2027, unless earlier redeemed, and have an initial conversion rate of 11.6198 shares of FWONK per $1,000 principal amount of notes, representing an initial conversion price of approximately $86.06 for each share of FWONK. Proceeds from the offering were used in part to repurchase $213 million aggregate principal amount of 1% FWONK cash convertible notes due 2023.

Total cash and cash equivalents attributed to the Braves Group decreased $48 million during the quarter due to cash used in operations primarily due to seasonal working capital changes, as well as debt service, partially offset by the release of restricted cash pursuant to the terms of various financial debt arrangements. Total debt attributed to the Braves Group was flat in the quarter as draws from the operating credit facilities were used to extinguish the ballpark floating rate notes.

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. ݮƵ 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.

ݮƵ 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, ݮƵ 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 ݮƵ's management considers in assessing the results of operations and performance of its assets.

The following table provides a reconciliation of Adjusted OIBDA for ݮƵ to operating income calculated in accordance with GAAP for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and September 30, 2022, respectively.

__________________________

(a)

During the three months ended September 30, 2021, SiriusXM recorded insurance recoveries related to the SXM-7 satellite of $80 million as well as the reversal of a $17 million liability related to the Stitcher acquisition. During the three months ended September 30, 2022, Sirius XM recorded impairment losses of $43 million related to the termination of certain software projects, $20 million related to the impairment of vacated office spaces and $5 million related to personnel severance, and Braves Holdings recorded $5 million of impairment losses as a result of hurricane damage at its spring training facility in Florida. These charges have been excluded from adjusted OIBDA.

SCHEDULE 2

This press release also includes a presentation of adjusted EBITDA of SiriusXM, 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 net income before interest expense, income tax expense and depreciation and amortization. SiriusXM adjusts EBITDA to exclude the impact of other expense (income) as well as certain other charges discussed below. Adjusted EBITDA is a Non-GAAP financial measure that excludes or adjusts for (if applicable): (i) loss on extinguishment of debt, (ii) share-based payment expense, (iii) impairment, restructuring and acquisition costs, (iv) legal settlements/reserves and (v) other significant operating expense (income) that do not relate to the on-going performance of SiriusXM’s business. SiriusXM believes adjusted EBITDA is a useful measure of the underlying trend of its operating performance, which provides useful information about its business apart from the costs associated with its capital structure and purchase price accounting. SiriusXM believes investors find this Non-GAAP financial measure useful when analyzing past operating performance with current performance and comparing SiriusXM’s operating performance to the performance of other communications, entertainment and media companies. SiriusXM believes investors use adjusted EBITDA to estimate current enterprise value and to make investment decisions. As a result of large capital investments in SiriusXM’s satellite radio system, its results of operations reflect significant charges for depreciation expense. SiriusXM believes the exclusion of share-based payment expense is useful as it is not directly related to the operational conditions of its business. SiriusXM also believes the exclusion of the legal settlements and reserves, impairment, restructuring and acquisition related costs, and loss on extinguishment of debt, to the extent they occur during the period, is useful as they are significant expenses not incurred as part of its normal operations for the period.

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. 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 operating results after giving effect for these costs, should refer to net income as disclosed in SiriusXM’s unaudited 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 net income to the adjusted EBITDA is calculated as follows:
