Corporate Updates

On July 18, 2023, ݮƵ completed the split-off of the Braves and its associated mixed-use development (the “Split-Off”) into the separate public company Atlanta Braves Holdings, Inc. (“Atlanta Braves Holdings”). The Braves Group was a tracking stock of ݮƵ prior to the Split-Off and therefore its results are reflected in Liberty’s historical consolidated results.

On August 3, 2023, ݮƵ completed the reclassification of its then-existing common stock to create the Liberty Live Group common stock (the “Reclassification”). Following the Reclassification, Liberty SiriusXM Group is comprised of ݮƵ’s interest in SiriusXM, Formula One Group is comprised of ݮƵ’s ownership of F1 and other minority investments, and Liberty Live Group is comprised of ݮƵ’s interest in Live Nation and other minority investments. The Split-Off and Reclassification are reflected in Liberty’s consolidated financial statements on a prospective basis.

____________________

a)

Includes $81 million and $74 million of amortization related to purchase accounting as of September 30, 2022 and September 30, 2023, 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 eight races held in the third quarter of 2023, compared to seven races held in the third quarter of 2022. There are 22 events scheduled for the 2023 race calendar.

Primary F1 revenue increased in the third quarter with growth across race promotion, media rights and sponsorship partly driven by one more race held in the current period, which resulted in a greater proportion of season-based revenue recognized. Race promotion revenue also increased due to higher fees generated from the different mix of events held, with two additional races outside of Europe, and other contractual increases in fees. Media rights revenue benefited from increased fees under new and renewed contractual agreements and continued growth in F1 TV subscription revenue. Sponsorship revenue also increased due to recognition of revenue from new sponsors and growth in revenue from existing sponsors. Other F1 revenue increased in the third quarter primarily due to higher freight income driven by two additional races held outside of Europe and higher hospitality revenue generated from the Paddock Club, partially offset by lower licensing income.

Operating income and adjusted OIBDA(2) increased in the third quarter. Team payments were higher compared to the prior year due to the pro rata recognition of payments across the race season with one more race held, as well as an expectation of increased team payments for the full year. Other cost of F1 revenue is largely variable in nature and is mostly derived from servicing both Primary and Other F1 revenue opportunities. These costs increased due to higher hospitality costs driven by cost inflation and the mix of events held in the current period, as well as increased freight costs due to two additional races outside of Europe. Other cost of F1 revenue in the third quarter was also impacted by increased technical, travel and other event-related costs due to one additional race, as well as increased commissions and partner servicing costs associated with higher Primary F1 revenue streams, certain early stage costs of promoting the Las Vegas Grand Prix and costs incurred for the new F1 Academy series. Selling, general and administrative expense increased primarily due to higher personnel, property, IT and marketing costs, some of which is attributable to the Las Vegas Grand Prix, partially offset by lower legal costs and foreign exchange favorability. There were $8 million of costs associated with the planning of the Las Vegas Grand Prix included in selling, general and administrative expense in the third quarter of 2023.

The businesses and assets attributed to Formula One Group consist primarily of ݮƵ’s subsidiary F1 and other minority investments.

LIBERTY LIVE GROUP - ݮƵ completed the Reclassification to create the Liberty Live Group tracking stock on August 3, 2023. In the third quarter, $5 million of corporate level selling, general and administrative expense (including stock-based compensation expense) was allocated to Liberty Live Group.

The businesses and assets attributed to Liberty Live Group consist primarily of ݮƵ’s interest in Live Nation and other minority investments.

Share Repurchases

There were no repurchases of ݮƵ’s common stock from August 1, 2023 through October 31, 2023. The total remaining repurchase authorization for ݮƵ as of November 1, 2023 is $1.1 billion and can be applied to repurchases of common shares of any of the ݮƵ tracking stocks.

The cash and debt narrative below compares financial information as of June 30, 2023 adjusted for the Split-Off and Reclassification to financial information as of September 30, 2023. Financial information for the period ended June 30, 2023 unadjusted for the Split-Off and Reclassification can be found in the table above.

Total cash and cash equivalents attributed to Liberty SiriusXM Group decreased $55 million in the third quarter as net debt repayment at both Liberty SiriusXM Group and SiriusXM, capital expenditures and return of capital at SiriusXM more than offset cash from operations at SiriusXM. Included in the cash and cash equivalents balance attributed to Liberty SiriusXM Group at September 30, 2023 is $53 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 $78 million of dividends from SiriusXM during the quarter.

Total debt attributed to Liberty SiriusXM Group decreased $188 million during the quarter as Liberty SiriusXM Group paid down $100 million under its SiriusXM margin loan and SiriusXM reduced borrowing under its revolving credit facility. In October, Liberty SiriusXM Group retired the remaining $199 million outstanding principal amount of its 1.375% cash convertible notes with cash on hand.

Total cash and cash equivalents attributed to Formula One Group increased $119 million during the quarter as cash from operations at F1 more than offset capital expenditures primarily related to the Las Vegas Grand Prix. During the third quarter, Formula One Group announced it entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Quint. The transaction is expected to close by year-end and will be funded with Formula One Group cash on hand.

Total debt at Formula One Group was relatively flat in the third quarter. Formula 1 repriced its $1.7 billion Term Loan B facility on October 4, 2023, reducing the margin from 3.00% to 2.25%.

Total cash and cash equivalents attributed to Liberty Live Group increased $215 million and total debt increased $292 million during the third quarter. During the quarter, Liberty Live Group issued $1.15 billion aggregate principal amount of 2.375% exchangeable senior debentures due 2053. A portion of the proceeds were used to repurchase $858 million aggregate adjusted principal amount of its 0.5% exchangeable senior debentures due 2050 for a total cost of $918 million. Liberty Live Group expects to use the remaining net proceeds of the offering to settle its remaining 0.5% exchangeable senior debentures ahead of the September 2024 put/call date, and for general corporate purposes. On September 5, 2023, the Live Nation margin loan was amended, extending the maturity date to September 2026 while other terms remain unchanged.

In connection with the Reclassification, the 3.75% Liberty SiriusXM Group convertible notes due 2028 (convertible into LSXMA) and the 2.25% Formula One Group convertible notes due 2027 (convertible into FWONK) were adjusted to provide for the conversion and settlement of the notes into the reclassified Liberty SiriusXM Group and Formula One Group equities, respectively, at new conversion rates in accordance with each respective bond indenture. As of September 30, 2023, the conversion rate for the 3.75% notes is 35.4563 shares of LSXMA and the conversion rate for the 2.25% notes is 12.0505 shares of FWONK per $1,000 principal amount of the respective 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 Liberty SiriusXM Group, Formula One Group, Liberty Live Group and the former Braves 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 (loss) calculated in accordance with GAAP for the three months ended September 30, 2022 and September 30, 2023, respectively.

____________________

a)

During the three months ended September 30, 2023, SiriusXM recorded restructuring related costs and impairments of $6 million. During the three months ended September 30, 2022, Sirius XM Holdings recorded an impairment of $43 million associated with terminated software projects, $16 million related to certain vacated office spaces, $4 million in connection with furniture and equipment located at the impaired 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 impairment, restructuring and acquisition related costs, 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 consolidated 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 SiriusXM’s 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:

____________________

a)

As reported by SiriusXM, during the three months ended September 30, 2023, SiriusXM recorded restructuring related costs and impairments of $5 million. As reported by SiriusXM, during the three months ended September 30, 2022, Sirius XM Holdings recorded an impairment of $43 million associated with terminated software projects, $16 million related to certain vacated office spaces, $4 million in connection with furniture and equipment located at the impaired office spaces and $5 million related to personnel severance. These charges have been excluded from adjusted OIBDA.

SCHEDULE 3

This press release includes a presentation of free cash flow of SiriusXM, which is a non-GAAP financial measure used by SiriusXM, together with a reconciliation to SiriusXM's stand-alone cash flow provided by operating activities, as determined under GAAP. SiriusXM’s free cash flow is derived from cash flow provided by operating activities plus insurance recoveries on its satellites, net of additions to property and equipment and purchases of other investments. Free cash flow is a metric that SiriusXM’s management and board of directors use to evaluate the cash generated by its operations, net of capital expenditures and other investment activity. In a capital intensive business, with significant investments in satellites, SiriusXM looks at its operating cash flow, net of these investing cash outflows, to determine cash available for future subscriber acquisition and capital expenditures, to repurchase or retire debt, to acquire other companies and to evaluate its ability to return capital to stockholders. SiriusXM excludes from free cash flow certain items that do not relate to the on-going performance of its business, such as cash flows related to acquisitions, strategic and short-term investments and net loan activity with related parties and other equity investees. SiriusXM believes free cash flow is an indicator of the long-term financial stability of its business. Free cash flow, which is reconciled to "Net cash provided by operating activities," is a non-GAAP financial measure. This measure can be calculated by deducting amounts under the captions "Additions to property and equipment" and deducting or adding Restricted and other investment activity from "Net cash provided by operating activities" from the unaudited consolidated statements of cash flows. Free cash flow should be used in conjunction with other GAAP financial performance measures and may not be comparable to free cash flow measures presented by other companies. Free cash flow should be viewed as a supplemental measure rather than an alternative measure of cash flows from operating activities, as determined in accordance with GAAP. Free cash flow is limited and does not represent remaining cash flows available for discretionary expenditures due to the fact that the measure does not deduct the payments required for debt maturities. SiriusXM believes free cash flow provides useful supplemental information to investors regarding its current cash flow, along with other GAAP measures (such as cash flows from operating and investing activities), to determine its financial condition, and to compare its operating performance to other communications, entertainment and media companies. Free cash flow is calculated as follows:
