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 two races held in the first quarter of 2022, compared to one race held in the first quarter of 2021. Throughout 2021 and particularly in the first half of the season, attendance at races was limited due to the pandemic, and the Paddock Club did not operate in the first half. F1 does not expect its results in 2022 to be impacted by such capacity limitations, though fan attendance continues to be assessed by relevant government authorities on a race-by-race basis. There are currently 22 events scheduled in 2022 following the cancellation of the Russian Grand Prix and F1 is actively evaluating alternatives.

Primary F1 revenue increased in the first quarter with growth across race promotion, media rights and sponsorship. All three primary F1 revenue streams grew due to the higher recognition of race specific and season-based income with two races held in the first quarter of 2022 compared to one race in the prior year period. Media rights also increased due to growth in F1 TV subscription revenue and fees under new and renewed contractual agreements. Race promotion revenue in the first quarter of 2021 included proceeds from a one-time settlement related to the cancellation of a race originally scheduled to commence in 2020. Sponsorship revenue also increased in the first quarter due to the recognition of revenue from new sponsors.

Other F1 revenue increased in the first quarter primarily due to the impact of one additional race held in the current year and a greater scope of activities able to be undertaken compared to the pandemic-affected first quarter of 2021. The increase was also driven by higher hospitality revenue generated from the Paddock Club, which operated at both races in the first quarter of 2022 but was unable to operate in the prior year period.

Operating income and adjusted OIBDA increased in the first quarter. Cost of F1 revenue increased compared to the prior year due to the impact of the pro rata recognition of team payments across the race season with one additional race held. Other cost of F1 revenue is largely variable in nature and mostly relates to revenue opportunities. These costs increased in the first quarter driven by the costs associated with two races having taken place compared to one in the prior year period combined with higher freight costs. Selling, general and administrative expense increased in the first quarter due to higher personnel and IT costs and increased legal and other advisory fees.

The Liberty SiriusXM Group holds an approximate 2.2% intergroup interest (5.3 million notional shares) in the Formula One Group as of April 30, 2022. These shares are not included in the outstanding share count of Formula One Group in Liberty Media'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 April 30, 2022 would have been 237 million.

The businesses and assets attributed to the Formula One Group consist of Liberty Media's subsidiary F1, its interest in Liberty Media 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 first quarter of 2022. In the first quarter, approximately $3 million of corporate level selling, general and administrative expense (including stock-based compensation expense) was allocated to the Braves Group.

Baseball revenue is comprised of (i) ballpark operations (ticket sales, concessions, corporate sales, retail, suites, premium seat fees and postseason), (ii) local broadcast rights and (iii) shared Major League Baseball revenue streams, including national broadcast rights and licensing. Development revenue is derived from the Battery Atlanta mixed-use facilities and primarily includes rental income.

In December 2021, the Collective Bargaining Agreement ("CBA"), which requires MLB clubs to sign players using a uniform contract, expired and MLB commenced a lockout of the Major League players. As a result of the lockout, the start of the 2022 regular season was delayed and the number of spring training games played was reduced. A new five-year Collective Bargaining Agreement was signed in March 2022 and the regular season began in April. Despite the delayed start of the 2022 season, a full 162-game schedule is expected to be played.

There were no home games played in the first quarter of 2022 or the prior year period. The first Braves game of the 2022 regular season was played on April 7th at full capacity. The 2021 regular season began with fans in attendance at 33% capacity for the first home game beginning April 9th, which increased to 50% capacity beginning April 23rd and further expanded to full capacity beginning May 7th.

Baseball revenue increased in the first quarter due to increased capacity at spring training games, additional special events held at the ballpark, World Series related retail revenue and an increase in licensing revenue. Development revenue increased during the first quarter due to a reduction in deferred payment arrangements and increases in rental income from various new lease commencements.

Operating loss was flat and adjusted OIBDA loss improved in the first quarter. Revenue growth more than offset increased operating costs due to more normalized levels of facility and spring training game day expenses. Selling, general and administrative expense increased primarily due to increased personnel costs, including commissions for ticket sales due to higher demand.

The Formula One Group holds an approximate 11.0% intergroup interest (6.8 million notional shares) and the Liberty SiriusXM Group holds an approximate 3.7% intergroup interest (2.3 million notional shares) in the Braves Group as of April 30, 2022. These shares are not included in the outstanding share count of the Braves Group in Liberty Media's most recent Form 10-Q. Assuming the issuance of the shares underlying these intergroup interests, the Braves Group outstanding share count as of April 30, 2022 would have been 62 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 and certain assets and liabilities associated with the Braves' ballpark and mixed-use development project.

Share Repurchases

From February 1, 2022 through April 30, 2022, Liberty SiriusXM Group repurchased approximately 1.7 million Series C Liberty SiriusXM shares (Nasdaq: LSXMK) at an average cost per share of $46.89 for total cash consideration of $81 million and repurchased approximately 2.1 million Series A Liberty SiriusXM shares (Nasdaq: LSXMA) at an average cost per share of $47.20 for total cash consideration of $101 million.

From February 1, 2022 through April 30, 2022, Formula One Group repurchased approximately 348 thousand Series A Liberty Formula One shares (Nasdaq: FWONA) at an average cost per share of $56.14 for total cash consideration of $20 million.

On May 4, 2022, a duly authorized committee of Liberty Media's Board of Directors increased the remaining repurchase authorization by $1 billion. The total remaining repurchase authorization for Liberty Media as of May 4, 2022 is $1.2 billion and can be applied to repurchases of Series A and Series C shares of any of the Liberty Media Corporation tracking stocks.

Liberty Media, SiriusXM, Formula 1 and Braves Holdings are in compliance with their debt covenants as of March 31, 2022.

Total cash and cash equivalents attributed to Liberty SiriusXM Group increased $112 million in the first quarter as cash from operations, net borrowings at SiriusXM and the disposition of marketable securities more than offset return of capital at both SiriusXM and Liberty SiriusXM Group and net debt repayment at Liberty SiriusXM. Included in the cash and cash equivalents balance attributed to Liberty SiriusXM Group at March 31, 2022 is $76 million held at SiriusXM. Although SiriusXM is a consolidated subsidiary, it is a separate public company with a non-controlling interest, therefore Liberty Media does not have ready access to SiriusXM's cash balance.

On February 1, 2022, SiriusXM announced they would pay a special cash dividend of $0.25 per share for an aggregate dividend of approximately $1 billion. The payment date of the special cash dividend was February 25, 2022, and Liberty SiriusXM received approximately $770 million of proceeds, net of extraordinary cash distributions of approximately $12 million paid to holders of its 2.125% SiriusXM exchangeable senior debentures due 2048 and approximately $18 million paid to holders of its 2.75% SiriusXM exchangeable senior debentures due 2049. Liberty SiriusXM Group received a total of $872 million in gross dividends from SiriusXM during the first quarter, including $70 million of proceeds from the regular quarterly dividend as well as the special cash dividend received in February.

Total debt attributed to Liberty SiriusXM Group increased $816 million during the quarter due to SiriusXM borrowing under its revolving credit facility, partially offset by net debt repayment at Liberty SiriusXM.

In October 2021, Liberty Media issued a notice of redemption in full for the 2.25% Live Nation exchangeable senior debentures due 2048 on or before December 1, 2021. All holders exercised their right to exchange the debentures in the fourth quarter. On January 21, 2022, the exchanges of debentures were settled in cash for $664 million funded with cash on hand and incremental borrowing under Liberty's margin loan facilities.

Total cash and cash equivalents attributed to the Formula One Group increased $191 million during the quarter due to cash from operations at F1 and short-term marketable securities which matured during the quarter and are now reflected in cash equivalents. Total debt at Formula One Group was flat in the first quarter.

Total cash and cash equivalents attributed to the Braves Group increased $169 million during the quarter as net debt repayment was more than offset by proceeds from the minor league sale and cash from operations, including the release of restricted cash held in reserves pursuant to the terms of various financial obligations. Total debt attributed to the Braves Group decreased $22 million in the quarter driven by repayment under the Braves team revolver. The second phase of the Battery Atlanta mixed-use development is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2022. An additional office building will be constructed at Five Ballpark Center that will house the national headquarters for Truist Securities under a 15-year lease. Construction is expected to begin in the second half of 2022 and the Braves' estimated cash contribution will be modest.

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. Liberty Media 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.

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

The following table provides a reconciliation of Adjusted OIBDA for Liberty Media to operating income calculated in accordance with GAAP for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2022, respectively.

Includes a $220 million impairment to the carrying value of SiriusXM's SXM-7 satellite after it experienced failures of certain payload units during in-orbit testing, and restructuring costs of $25 million resulting from the termination of SiriusXM's leased office space during the three months ended March 31, 2021. 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:
