The increases in Liberty SiriusXM Group revenue, operating income and adjusted OIBDA(2) in the fourth quarter and full year 2018 were primarily attributable to an increase in SiriusXM’s daily weighted average number of subscribers and an increase in SiriusXM’s average monthly revenue per subscriber due to certain rate increases. Revenue growth at Liberty SiriusXM Group was partially offset by the impact of the adoption of a new revenue recognition accounting standard, as described in detail in Liberty Media’s Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018.

SiriusXM is a separate publicly traded company and additional information about SiriusXM can be obtained through its website and filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Primary F1 revenue represents the majority of F1’s revenue and is derived from (i) race promotion fees, (ii) broadcasting fees and (iii) advertising and sponsorship fees. For the year ended December 31, 2018, these revenue streams comprised 33.8%, 33.1% and 14.6%, respectively, of total F1 revenue. F1 held 5 races in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to 6 races in the fourth quarter of 2017, and 21 races in the 2018 season compared to 20 in the 2017 season.

Primary F1 revenue decreased in the fourth quarter primarily due to one less event being held in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to 2017. Broadcast revenue decreased due to the calendar change, as approximately 5/21 of the full year fees were recognized in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to 6/20 in the prior year. Advertising and sponsorship revenue in the fourth quarter benefited modestly from the adoption of the new revenue recognition accounting standard (ASC 606) on recognizing fees from F1’s Global Partner and Official Supplier contracts. These fee elements were previously recognized pro-rata with the race calendar, but certain elements are now being recognized evenly over the calendar year and others over a smaller number of specific events. While this led to quarter by quarter variation against prior year recognition, the change was neutral on a full calendar year basis.

For the full year 2018, Primary F1 revenue was essentially flat. Race promotion revenue increased modestly primarily due to contractual increases in race promotion fees, as well as a contract amendment for one event that provided for an increase in promotion revenue which was fully offset by a reduction in advertising revenue related to that event. This contract amendment was neutral for total Primary F1 revenue. In addition, race promotion revenue in 2018 was impacted by the calendar variance, with the non-occurrence of the Malaysian Grand Prix in 2018 not fully offset by the return of two European races in France and Germany. Broadcast revenue was essentially flat for the full year 2018 as contractual rate increases and favorable foreign currency movements were offset by the early termination of one contract with a failing broadcast rights broker. Advertising and sponsorship revenue decreased for the full year 2018. Revenue from new sponsorship agreements and growth in certain contractual agreements did not fully offset the aforementioned contract amendment that saw a reduction in advertising revenue fully offset by an equal increase in promotion revenue (which was neutral to primary revenue).

Other F1 revenue increased in the fourth quarter and full year 2018, primarily due to higher logistics revenue, higher digital media and TV production related revenue, increased revenue from various fan engagement activities and higher spare part sales for the F2 and GP3 support series. From 2019 onward, under a long term agreement with the FIA, F1 will operate a new official F3 support series in place of GP3.

Operating loss increased in the fourth quarter and full year 2018. Adjusted OIBDA decreased in the fourth quarter primarily due to calendar variances and decreased for the full year 2018 primarily due to increased costs as the business continued to invest. Cost of F1 revenue increased primarily due to logistics and travel expense, higher costs associated with providing the chassis and component parts to F2 and GP3 teams, digital media development and spend on fan engagement, which more than offset reduced team payments. Selling, general and administrative expense increased primarily as a result of increased marketing and research costs and increased bad debt expense due to payments issues with two commercial partners.

F1’s total net debt to covenant OIBDA ratio, as defined in F1’s credit facilities for covenant calculations, was approximately 7.35x as of December 31, 2018, as compared to a maximum allowable leverage ratio of 8.75x. Income from 21 races was captured in the trailing twelve months ended December 31, 2018 versus 22 races for the period ended September 30, 2018, and the leverage ratio increased accordingly.

The businesses and assets attributed to the Formula One Group consist of Liberty Media’s subsidiary F1, its interest in Live Nation, minority equity investments and an intergroup interest in the Braves Group. There are approximately 9.1 million notional shares of the Braves Group underlying the Formula One Group’s 15.1% intergroup interest as of January 31, 2019.

BRAVES GROUP - The following table provides the financial results attributed to the Braves Group for the fourth quarter and full year 2018. Approximately $1 million and $7 million of corporate level selling, general and administrative expense (including stock-based compensation expense) was allocated to the Braves Group in the fourth quarter and full year 2018, respectively.

Baseball revenue is comprised of (i) ballpark operations (including post-season), (ii) local and national broadcast rights and (iii) licensing and other shared MLB revenue streams. Development revenue is derived from the Battery Atlanta mixed-use facilities and primarily includes lease income.

Baseball revenue grew in the fourth quarter due to revenue generated in the post-season. For the full year 2018, baseball revenue grew primarily due to increased ticket sales and concession revenue, as well as post-season revenue. Development revenue grew in the fourth quarter and full year 2018 as the project continued to increase occupancy. Development revenue growth in the fourth quarter of 2018 was partially offset by the sale of the residential portion of the Battery on October 9, 2018 and the reduction in associated revenue.

Operating income in the full year 2018 was $8 million. The increases in operating income and adjusted OIBDA for the fourth quarter and full year 2018 were primarily driven by higher revenue and reduced operating expense due to the acceleration of player salary expense in prior periods as a result of released and injured players.

The Formula One Group holds an approximate 15.1% intergroup interest in the Braves Group as of January 31, 2019. Assuming the issuance of the shares underlying the intergroup interest held by the Formula One Group, the Braves Group outstanding share count as of January 31, 2019 would have been 60 million.

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

Share Repurchases

From November 1, 2018 through January 31, 2019, Liberty Media repurchased approximately 4.2 million Series C Liberty SiriusXM shares (LSXMK) at an average cost per share of $38.12 for total cash consideration of $159 million. The total remaining repurchase authorization for Liberty Media is approximately $723 million and can be applied to repurchases of Series A and Series C shares of any of the Liberty Media Corporation tracking stocks.

Total cash and liquid investments attributed to Liberty SiriusXM Group decreased $35 million during the fourth quarter. Additional borrowing at Liberty SiriusXM combined with cash from operations at SiriusXM were more than offset by return of capital at both SiriusXM and Liberty SiriusXM. Included in the cash and liquid investments balance attributed to Liberty SiriusXM Group at December 31, 2018 is $54 million at SiriusXM. Although SiriusXM is a consolidated subsidiary, it is a separate public company with a significant non-controlling interest, therefore Liberty Media does not have ready access to SiriusXM’s cash balance.

Total debt attributed to Liberty SiriusXM Group increased $369 million during the fourth quarter primarily as a result of increased borrowing under SiriusXM’s revolving credit facility.

Total cash and liquid investments attributed to Formula One Group increased $9 million during the fourth quarter, primarily as a result of net borrowings. Cash at Formula 1 decreased modestly due to typical cash flow seasonality of the business, which sees most Primary F1 revenue income received in advance, while the majority of costs (including team payments) are spread more evenly over the course of the season and year.

Total debt attributed to Formula One Group increased $32 million during the quarter. In December 2018, Liberty Media closed a private offering for $385 million (including the greenshoe) of 2.25% exchangeable senior debentures due 2048. A total of 5.8 million shares of Live Nation common stock are attributable to the debentures. 15.0886 shares of Live Nation common stock are attributable to each $1,000 original principal amount of debentures, representing an initial exchange price of $66.28 for each share of Live Nation. Net proceeds were used to fully repay Liberty Media’s $350 million Live Nation margin loan and for general corporate purposes. The Live Nation margin loan facility was kept in place, and it was amended in December 2018 to increase its borrowing capacity to $600 million, extend the maturity to December 10, 2020 and decrease the interest rate to L+180 bps, among other changes.

Total cash and liquid investments attributed to the Braves Group increased $29 million in the quarter as cash from operations and net proceeds from the sale of the residential portion of the Battery more than offset capital expenditures and debt repayment. The Braves new spring training facility is expected to open in March 2019 in North Port, Florida.

Total debt attributed to the Braves Group decreased $132 million during the fourth quarter primarily due to repayment of mixed-use development debt associated with the sale of the residential portion of the Battery and repayment of Braves team level debt. The second phase of the Battery Atlanta mixed-use development is expected to cost approximately $200 million, which the Braves and affiliated entities expect to fund through a mix of approximately $55 million in equity and approximately $145 million in net debt. A portion of the funding for this second phase will come from proceeds from the sale of the residential development at the Battery.
