NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(UNAUDITED)
(Dollars and shares in millions, except per share amounts)


(1)Business & Basis of Presentation
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q presents information for Sirius XM Holdings Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively “Holdings”).  The terms “Holdings,” “we,” “us,” “our,” and “our company” as used herein, and unless otherwise stated or indicated by context, refer to Sirius XM Holdings Inc. and its subsidiaries. “Sirius XM” refers to our wholly owned subsidiary Sirius XM Radio Inc. and its subsidiaries. “Pandora” refers to Sirius XM's wholly owned subsidiary Pandora Media, LLC and its subsidiaries. Holdings has no operations independent of Sirius XM and Pandora.
Business
We operate two complementary audio entertainment businesses - one of which we refer to as “SiriusXM” and the second of which we refer to as “Pandora and Off-platform”. 
Sirius XM
Our Sirius XM business features music, sports, entertainment, comedy, talk, news, traffic and weather channels and other content, as well as podcasts and infotainment services, in the United States on a subscription fee basis. Sirius XM packages include live, curated and certain exclusive and on demand programming. The Sirius XM service is distributed through our two proprietary satellite radio systems and streamed via applications for mobile devices, home devices and other consumer electronic equipment. Satellite radios are primarily distributed through automakers, retailers and our website. Our Sirius XM service is also available through our in-car user interface, which we call “360L,” that combines our satellite and streaming services into a single, cohesive in-vehicle entertainment experience.
The primary source of revenue from our Sirius XM business is subscription fees, with most of our customers subscribing to monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual plans.  We also derive revenue from advertising on select non-music channels, which is sold under the SXM Media brand, direct sales of our satellite radios and accessories, and other ancillary services.  As of September 30, 2022, our Sirius XM business had approximately 34.2 million subscribers.
In addition to our audio entertainment businesses, we provide connected vehicle services to several automakers. These services are designed to enhance the safety, security and driving experience of consumers. We also offer a suite of data services that includes graphical weather, fuel prices, sports schedules and scores and movie listings, a traffic information service that includes information as to road closings, traffic flow and incident data to consumers with compatible in-vehicle navigation systems, and real-time weather services in vehicles, boats and planes.
Sirius XM also holds a 70% equity interest and 33% voting interest in Sirius XM Canada Holdings Inc. (“Sirius XM Canada”). Sirius XM Canada's subscribers are not included in our subscriber count or subscriber-based operating metrics.
Pandora and Off-platform
Pandora operates a music and podcast streaming discovery platform, offering a personalized experience for each listener wherever and whenever they want to listen, whether through computers, tablets, mobile devices, vehicle speakers or connected devices.  Pandora enables listeners to create personalized stations and playlists, discover new content, hear artist- and expert-curated playlists, podcasts and select Sirius XM content as well as search and play songs and albums on-demand.  Pandora is available as (1) an ad-supported radio service, (2) a radio subscription service (Pandora Plus) and (3) an on-demand subscription service (Pandora Premium).  As of September 30, 2022, Pandora had approximately 6.3 million subscribers.
The majority of revenue from Pandora is generated from advertising on our Pandora ad-supported radio service which is sold under the SXM Media brand. We also derive subscription revenue from our Pandora Plus and Pandora Premium subscribers.
We also sell advertising on other audio platforms and in widely distributed podcasts, which we consider to be off-platform services. We have an arrangement with SoundCloud Holdings, LLC (“SoundCloud”) to be its exclusive ad sales representative in the US and certain European countries and offer advertisers the ability to execute campaigns across the Pandora and SoundCloud platforms. We also have arrangements to serve as the ad sales representative for certain podcasts. In

(Dollars and shares in millions, except per share amounts)
addition, through AdsWizz Inc., we provide a comprehensive digital audio and programmatic advertising technology platform, which connects audio publishers and advertisers with a variety of ad insertion, campaign trafficking, yield optimization, programmatic buying, marketplace and podcast monetization solutions.
Liberty Media
As of September 30, 2022, Liberty Media Corporation (“Liberty Media”) beneficially owned, directly and indirectly, approximately 82% of the outstanding shares of our common stock.  As a result, we are a “controlled company” for the purposes of the NASDAQ corporate governance requirements. Refer to Note 11 for more information regarding related parties.
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements of Holdings have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). All significant intercompany transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Certain numbers in our prior period consolidated financial statements and footnotes have been reclassified or consolidated to conform to our current period presentation.
In the opinion of our management, all normal recurring adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of our unaudited consolidated financial statements as of September 30, 2022 and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021 have been made.
Interim results are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for a full year. This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q should be read together with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, which was filed with the SEC on February 1, 2022.
Public companies are required to disclose certain information about their reportable operating segments.  Operating segments are defined as significant components of an enterprise for which separate financial information is available and is evaluated on a regular basis by the chief operating decision maker in deciding how to allocate resources to an individual segment and in assessing performance of the segment. We have determined that we have two reportable segments as our chief operating decision maker, our Chief Executive Officer, assesses performance and allocates resources based on the financial results of these segments. Refer to Note 17 for information related to our segments.
We have evaluated events subsequent to the balance sheet date and prior to the filing of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and have determined that no events have occurred that would require adjustment to our unaudited consolidated financial statements.  For a discussion of subsequent events that do not require adjustment to our unaudited consolidated financial statements refer to Note 18.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and footnotes.  Estimates, by their nature, are based on judgment and available information.  Actual results could differ materially from those estimates.  Significant estimates inherent in the preparation of the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements include asset impairment, depreciable lives of our satellites, share-based payment expense and income taxes.

(2)Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Fair Value Measurements
For assets and liabilities required to be reported at fair value, GAAP provides a hierarchy that prioritizes inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three broad levels. Level 1 inputs are based on unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical instruments. Level 2 inputs are inputs, other than quoted market prices included within Level 1, that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly. Level 3 inputs are unobservable inputs for the asset or liability. As of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, receivables and accounts payable approximated fair value due to the short-term nature of these instruments.

Our liabilities measured at fair value were as follows:

 Level 1Level 2Level 3Total Fair ValueLevel 1Level 2Level 3Total Fair Value
Liabilities:        
Debt (a)
 $8,561  $8,561  $9,052  $9,052 
(a)The fair value for non-publicly traded debt is based upon estimates from a market maker and brokerage firm.  Refer to Note 12 for information related to the carrying value of our debt as of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021.
Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (Loss)
Accumulated other comprehensive loss of $8 was primarily comprised of the cumulative foreign currency translation adjustments related to our investment in Sirius XM Canada (refer to Note 11 for additional information). During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, we recorded foreign currency translation adjustment loss of $21 and $23, respectively, net of tax benefit of $7 and $8, respectively. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, we recorded foreign currency translation adjustment (loss) income of $(10) and $2, respectively, net of tax benefit (expense) of $3 and $(1), respectively.
Recently Adopted Accounting Policies
Accounting Standard Update (ASU) 2020-06, Debt—Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging— Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40). In August 2020, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued ASU 2020-06 which removes the separation models for convertible debt with cash conversion or beneficial conversion features. ASU 2020-06 also requires the application of the if-converted method for calculating diluted earnings per share as the treasury stock method will no longer be permitted for convertible instruments. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, we adopted ASU 2020-06 as of January 1, 2022 using the modified retrospective approach and recorded a $14 increase to the carrying value of Pandora's 1.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2023 and a corresponding increase to our accumulated deficit. The adoption of ASU 2020-06 did not have a material impact on our diluted earnings per share.

(3)Acquisitions
On May 20, 2022, we completed an acquisition for total cash consideration of $93. We recognized goodwill of $69, indefinite-lived intangible assets of $1 and other long-term assets of $23. The other assets represent acquired content which will be amortized over its estimated useful life to Programming and content in our unaudited consolidated statements of comprehensive income.
On January 12, 2022, we completed an acquisition for total cash consideration of $43. We recognized goodwill of $29, other definite-lived intangible assets of $19 and liabilities of $4.
On April 23, 2021, we completed an acquisition for total consideration of $27 which included $20 in cash, a $3 deferred cash payment and $4 in restricted stock units. We recognized goodwill of $23 and other assets of $5.
On October 16, 2020, we acquired the assets of Stitcher from The E.W. Scripps Company and certain of its subsidiaries (“Scripps”) for total consideration of $302, which included $266 in cash and $36 related to contingent consideration. During each of the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, we recognized a $17 benefit related to the change in fair value of the 2021 portion of the contingent consideration related to the Stitcher transaction in Impairment, restructuring and acquisition costs in our unaudited consolidated statements of comprehensive income.
Acquisition related costs for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 were $1 and $2, respectively. Acquisition related costs of $3 were recognized for the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

(4)Restructuring Costs
During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, we evaluated our office space needs, and, as a result of such analysis, we vacated certain office spaces. We assessed the recoverability of the carrying value of the operating lease right of use assets related to these locations. We determined that the carrying values of the assets were not recoverable, and we recorded an impairment of $16 to reduce the carrying value of the assets to their fair values. Additionally, we wrote off fixed
12

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - Continued
(UNAUDITED)
(Dollars and shares in millions, except per share amounts)
assets of $4 in connection with furniture and equipment located at the impaired office spaces. Separately, we performed an analysis surrounding initiatives that we are no longer pursuing and recorded an impairment of $43 associated with terminated software projects and an impairment of $5 related to personnel severance. The total charge of $68 was recorded to Impairment, restructuring and acquisition costs in our unaudited consolidated statements of comprehensive income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022.
There were no restructuring charges recorded during the three months ended September 30, 2021. During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, we evaluated our office space needs and, as a result of such analysis, surrendered certain office leases. We assessed the recoverability of the carrying value of the operating lease right of use assets related to these locations. Based on that assessment, the carrying values of the assets were not recoverable, and we recorded an impairment of $18 to reduce the carrying value of the assets to their fair values. Additionally, we accrued expenses of $6 for which we will not recognize any future economic benefits and wrote off leasehold improvements of $1. The fair values of the assets were determined using a discounted cash flow model based on management's assumptions regarding the ability to sublease the locations and the remaining term of the leases. The total charge of $25 was recorded to Impairment, restructuring and acquisition costs in our unaudited consolidated statements of comprehensive income for the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

(5)Earnings per Share
Basic net income per common share is calculated by dividing the income available to common stockholders by the weighted average common shares outstanding during each reporting period.  Diluted net income per common share adjusts the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the potential dilution that could occur if common stock equivalents (stock options, restricted stock units and convertible debt) were exercised or converted into common stock, calculated using the treasury stock method. We had no participating securities during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021.
Common stock equivalents of 93 and 100 for the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, and 86 and 98 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, were excluded from the calculation of diluted net income per common share as the effect would have been anti-dilutive.
