"2009 was a notable year of firsts for SIRIUS XM: The first full year of positive pro forma adjusted income from operations and the first full year of positive free cash flow in the company's history," said Mel Karmazin, the Chief Executive Officer of SIRIUS XM. "We demonstrated considerable operating momentum in the fourth quarter - the addition of over 250,000 subscribers, ARPU growth, revenue growth, improved SAC, and continued operating cost reductions. These gains position us to deliver on our 2010 guidance."

In the fourth quarter 2009, the Company's pro forma average revenue per subscriber (ARPU) grew to $10.92 from $10.65 in the fourth quarter of 2008. The average self-pay monthly customer churn rate was 2.0% in the fourth quarter of 2009, as compared with 1.8% in the fourth quarter of 2008.

Fourth quarter of 2009 pro forma revenue was $684 million, up 6% from fourth quarter 2008 pro forma revenue of $644 million. Subscriber acquisition costs (SAC) per gross subscriber addition was $64 in the fourth quarter of 2009, an improvement of 9% over the $70 in SAC per gross subscriber addition in the fourth quarter of 2008.

In the fourth quarter of 2009, SIRIUS XM achieved pro forma adjusted income from operations of $115 million as compared with $32 million in the fourth quarter of 2008. Free cash flow in the quarter of 2009 was $150 million compared to $26 million in the fourth quarter of 2008. The pro forma fourth quarter 2009 net loss was ($25) million as compared with ($248) million in the fourth quarter of 2008. On a GAAP basis, the fourth quarter 2009 net income was $14 million compared to a loss of ($246) million in the 2008 quarter.

"The $599 million improvement in full-year pro forma adjusted income from operations illustrates the strength of our business model and also demonstrates the economic benefit generated by the SIRIUS-XM merger in July 2008," said David Frear, the Company's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. "With over $380 million in cash, positive free cash flow and continued growth in adjusted income from operations, our financial condition has never been stronger," Frear added.

2010 OUTLOOK

Looking to 2010, the company expects full-year revenue of over $2.7 billion. Free cash flow is expected to remain positive in 2010.

"We expect to add over 500,000 net subscribers this year, exceeding the company's previous subscriber high of 19 million at the end of 2008. We also expect this year's adjusted income from operations to be up approximately 20% to $550 million," said Karmazin.

PRO FORMA RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The discussion of operating results below is based upon pro forma comparisons as if the merger between SIRIUS and XM occurred on January 1, 2007 and excludes the effects of stock-based compensation and purchase accounting adjustments associated with the merger between SIRIUS and XM.

FOURTH QUARTER 2009 VERSUS FOURTH QUARTER 2008

For the fourth quarter of 2009, SIRIUS XM recognized total revenue of $684 million compared to $644 million for the fourth quarter 2008. This 6%, or $40 million, increase in revenue was driven by the U.S. Music Royalty Fee introduced in the third quarter of 2009, the sale of "Best of" programming, and rate increases to the company's multi-subscription and Internet packages.

Total ARPU for the three months ended December 31, 2009 was $10.92, compared to $10.65 for the three months ended December 31, 2008. The increase was driven mainly by the sale of "Best of" programming and increased rates on the company's multi-subscription and Internet packages, partially offset by a decline in net advertising revenue per average subscriber.

In the fourth quarter of 2009, the company maintained positive pro forma adjusted income from operations of $115 million compared to a pro forma adjusted income from operations of $32 million for the fourth quarter of 2008 (refer to the reconciliation table of net loss to adjusted income (loss) from operations). The improvement was driven by the increase in total revenue of $40 million and a $44 million, or 7%, decrease in expenses included in pro forma adjusted income from operations.

Satellite and transmission costs increased 10%, or $2 million, in the three months ended December 31, 2009 compared to the same period in 2008 due to non-cash repeater lease charges and an increase in in-orbit insurance expense, partially offset by reductions in repeater maintenance and personnel costs.

Programming and content costs decreased 12%, or $12 million, in the three months ended December 31, 2009 compared to the same period in 2008 due mainly to reductions in personnel and on-air talent costs as well as savings on certain content arrangements.

Revenue share and royalties increased 1%, or $2 million, in the three months ended December 31, 2009 compared to the same period in 2008, due mainly to the increase in the company's revenues and the statutory royalty rate for the performance of sound recordings offset in part by a reduction in the revenue share rate paid to an automaker.

Customer service and billing costs decreased 12%, or $8 million, in the three months ended December 31, 2009 compared to the same period in 2008 due primarily to reductions in personnel and customer call center expenses.

Cost of equipment decreased 33%, or $6 million, in the three months ended December 31, 2009 compared to the same period in 2008 as a result of a decrease in the company's direct to customer sales and lower inventory write-downs.

Sales and marketing costs decreased 2%, or $2 million, and decreased as a percentage of revenue to 12% from 13% in the three months ended December 31, 2009 compared to the same period in 2008. The decrease in Sales and marketing costs was due to reduced personnel costs and third party distribution support expenses.

Subscriber acquisition costs decreased 4%, or $5 million, and decreased as a percentage of revenue to 19% from 21% in the three months ended December 31, 2009 compared to the same period in 2008. SAC per gross addition declined by 9%, to $64, from $70 in the year ago period. This improvement in the 2009 quarter was driven by lower OEM subsidies, chipset costs and aftermarket acquisition costs, partially offset by higher aftermarket inventory related charges as compared to the three months ended December 31, 2008. Subscriber acquisition costs also decreased despite the 10% increase in gross additions during the three months ended December 31, 2009 compared to the three months ended December 31, 2008.

General and administrative costs decreased 24%, or $12 million, mainly due to the absence of certain legal and regulatory charges incurred in 2008 and lower personnel costs.

Engineering, design and development costs decreased 23%, or $2 million, in the three months ended December 31, 2009 compared to the same period in 2008 due to lower costs associated with development, tooling, and testing of radios as well as lower personnel costs.

Restructuring, impairments and related costs decreased 11% during the 2009 quarter due to fewer restructuring charges associated with the merger with XM.

Other expenses decreased 65%, or $132 million, in the three months ended December 31, 2009 compared to the same period in 2008. The reduction was largely the product of the decrease in loss on extinguishment of debt and credit facilities of $94 million, an increase in gain on investments of $29 million, and $7 million increase in other income (expense). The decrease in loss on the extinguishment of debt and credit facilities was driven mainly by the exchange of certain of the company's 2½% Convertible Notes due 2009 into shares of the company's common stock in December 2008. The increase in gain on investments was attributable to an impairment charge recorded in 2008 on XM's carrying value of its investments with no such impairment recorded in the fourth quarter of 2009 and payments received from Canadian Satellite Radio Inc. in excess of XM's carrying value of its investments.

YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2009 VERSUS YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2008

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2009, SIRIUS XM recognized total revenue of $2,527 million compared with $2,437 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2008. This 4%, or $90 million, increase in revenue was primarily driven by the U.S. Music Royalty Fee introduced in the third quarter of 2009, the sale of "Best of" programming, and rate increases to the company's multi-subscription and Internet packages.

ARPU for the twelve months ended December 31, 2009 was $10.73, compared to $10.56 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2008. The increase was driven mainly by the sale of "Best of" programming, increased rates on the company's multi-subscription packages and revenues earned on its Internet packages, partially offset by a decline in net advertising revenue per average subscriber.

The company's pro forma adjusted income from operations increased $599 million to $463 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2009 from a loss of ($136) million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2008 (refer to the reconciliation table of net loss to adjusted income (loss) from operations). This increase was driven by a 4%, or $90 million, increase in revenue and a 20%, or $509 million, decrease in expenses included in pro forma adjusted income (loss) from operations.

Satellite and transmission costs decreased 17%, or $17 million, in the twelve months ended December 31, 2009 compared to 2008 due to reductions in repeater maintenance costs, non-cash repeater charges, and personnel costs.

Programming and content costs decreased 17%, or $76 million, in the twelve months ended December 31, 2009 compared to 2008, due to a one-time payment recognized in 2008 to a programming provider upon completion of the merger with XM, reductions in personnel and on-air talent costs as well as savings on certain content arrangements.

Revenue share and royalties increased 2%, or $9 million, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2009 compared to 2008, due to the increase in the company's revenues and the statutory royalty rate for the performance of sound recordings offset in part by a reduction in the revenue share rate paid to an automaker.

Customer service and billing costs decreased 5%, or $12 million, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2009 compared to 2008 due to scale efficiencies.

Cost of equipment decreased 39%, or $26 million, in the twelve months ended December 31, 2009 compared to 2008 as a result of a decrease in the company's direct to customer sales, lower inventory write-downs and lower product and component sales.

Sales and marketing costs decreased 32%, or $110 million, and decreased as a percentage of revenue to 9% from 14% in the twelve months ended December 31, 2009 compared to 2008. The decrease was due to reduced advertising and cooperative marketing spend as well as reductions to personnel costs and third party distribution support expenses.

Subscriber acquisition costs decreased 30%, or $175 million, and decreased as a percentage of revenue to 16% from 24% in the twelve months ended December 31, 2009 compared to 2008. This decrease was driven by a 15% improvement in SAC, as adjusted, per gross addition due to fewer OEM installations relative to gross subscriber additions, decreased production of certain radios and lower aftermarket inventory reserves in the twelve months ended December 31, 2009 as compared to the twelve months ended December 31, 2008. Subscriber acquisition costs also decreased as a result of the 19% decline in gross additions during the twelve months ended December 31, 2009.

General and administrative costs decreased 32%, or $85 million, mainly due to the absence of certain legal and regulatory charges incurred in 2008 and lower personnel costs.

Engineering, design and development costs decreased 31%, or $16 million, in the twelve months ended December 31, 2009 compared to 2008, due to lower costs associated with development, tooling, and testing of radios as well as lower personnel costs.

Restructuring, impairments and related costs increased $22 million mainly due to a loss of $24 million on capitalized installment payments, offset partially by a decrease in personnel related restructuring costs.

Other expenses increased 53%, or $202 million, in the twelve months ended December 31, 2009 compared to 2008 driven mainly by the increase in loss on extinguishment of debt and credit facilities of $170 million, and an increase in interest expense of $89 million, offset by an increase of $45 million in gain on investments and an increase in other income of $19 million. The increase in loss on the extinguishment of debt and credit facilities was driven by the full repayment of SIRIUS' Credit Agreement with Liberty Media and XM's Amended and Restated Credit Agreement and its Second-Lien Credit Agreement. Interest expense increased due primarily to the issuance of XM's 13% Senior Notes due 2013 and the 7% Exchangeable Senior Subordinated Notes due 2014 in the fourth quarter of 2008. The increase in gain on investments was attributable to a higher impairment charge recorded in 2008 on XM's carrying value of its investments than recorded in 2009, payments received from Canadian Satellite Radio Inc. in excess of XM's carrying value of its investment, partially offset by the company's share of SIRIUS Canada's and XM Canada's net losses for the twelve months ended December 31, 2009 compared to 2008.

The following tables contain actual and pro forma subscriber and key operating metrics for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively.

    (1)  Average self-pay monthly churn represents the monthly average of
         self-pay deactivations by the quarter divided by the average self-pay
         subscriber balance for the quarter.
    (2)  We measure the percentage of vehicle owners and lessees that receive
         our service and convert to self-paying after the initial promotion
         period. We refer to this as the "conversion rate." At the time of
         sale, vehicle owners and lessees generally receive between three and
         twelve month trial subscriptions. Promotional periods generally
         include the period of trial service plus 30 days to handle the
         receipt and processing of payments. We measure conversion rate three
         months after the period in which the trial service ends. Based on our
         experience it may take up to 90 days after the trial service ends for
         vehicle owners and lessees to respond to our marketing communications
         and become self-paying subscribers.
    (3)  ARPU is derived from total earned subscriber revenue and net
         advertising revenue, divided by the number of months in the period,
         divided by the daily weighted average number of subscribers for the
         period. ARPU is calculated as follows (in thousands, except for
         subscriber and per subscriber amounts):

    (7)  Average self-pay monthly churn; conversion rate; ARPU; SAC, as
         adjusted, per gross subscriber addition; customer service and billing
         expenses, as adjusted, per average subscriber; and free cash flow are
         not measures of financial performance under U.S. generally accepted
         accounting principles ("GAAP"). We believe these non-GAAP financial
         measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our
         operating performance and are used by us for budgetary and planning
         purposes; when publicly providing our business outlook; as a means to
         evaluate period-to-period comparisons; and to compare our performance
         to that of our competitors. We also believe that investors also use
         our current and projected metrics to monitor the performance of our
         business and to make investment decisions.

         We believe the exclusion of share-based payment expense in our
         calculations of SAC, as adjusted, per gross subscriber addition and
         customer service and billing expenses, as adjusted, per average
         subscriber is useful given the significant variation in expense that
         can result from changes in the fair market value of our common stock,
         the effect of which is unrelated to the operational conditions that
         give rise to variations in the components of our subscriber
         acquisition costs and customer service and billing expenses.
         Specifically, the exclusion of share-based payment expense in our
         calculation of SAC, as adjusted, per gross subscriber addition is
         critical in being able to understand the economic impact of the
         direct costs incurred to acquire a subscriber and the effect over
         time as economies of scale are reached.

         These non-GAAP financial measures are used in addition to and in
         conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP. These
         non-GAAP financial measures 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.

    (8)  We refer to net income (loss) before interest and investment income;
         interest expense, net of amounts capitalized; income tax expense;
         loss on extinguishment of debt and credit facilities, net; (gain)
         loss on investments; other expense (income); restructuring,
         impairments and related costs; depreciation and amortization; and
         share-based payment expense as adjusted income (loss) from
         operations.  Adjusted income (loss) from operations is not a measure
         of financial performance under U.S. GAAP. We believe adjusted income
         (loss) from operations is a useful measure of our operating
         performance. We use adjusted income (loss) from operations for
         budgetary and planning purposes; to assess the relative profitability
         and on-going performance of our consolidated operations; to compare
         our performance from period-to-period; and to compare our performance
         to that of our competitors. We also believe adjusted income (loss)
         from operations is useful to investors to compare our operating
         performance to the performance of other communications, entertainment
         and media companies. We believe that investors use current and
         projected adjusted income (loss) from operations to estimate our
         current or prospective enterprise value and to make investment
         decisions.

         Because we fund and build-out our satellite radio system through the
         periodic raising and expenditure of large amounts of capital, our
         results of operations reflect significant charges for interest and
         depreciation expense. We believe adjusted income (loss) from
         operations provides useful information about the operating
         performance of our business apart from the costs associated with our
         capital structure and physical plant. The exclusion of interest and
         depreciation and amortization expense is useful given fluctuations in
         interest rates and significant variation in depreciation and
         amortization expense that can result from the amount and timing of
         capital expenditures and potential variations in estimated useful
         lives, all of which can vary widely across different industries or
         among companies within the same industry. We believe the exclusion of
         taxes is appropriate for comparability purposes as the tax positions
         of companies can vary because of their differing abilities to take
         advantage of tax benefits and because of the tax policies of the
         various jurisdictions in which they operate. We believe the exclusion
         of restructuring, impairments and related costs is useful given the
         non-recurring nature of these expenses. We also believe the exclusion
         of share-based payment expense is useful given the significant
         variation in expense that can result from changes in the fair market
         value of our common stock. To compensate for the exclusion of taxes,
         other expense (income), depreciation and amortization and share-based
         payment expense, we separately measure and budget for these items.

         There are material limitations associated with the use of adjusted
         income (loss) from operations in evaluating our company compared with
         net loss, which reflects overall financial performance, including the
         effects of taxes, other (income) expense, depreciation and
         amortization, restructuring, impairments and related costs and share-
         based payment expense. We use adjusted income (loss) from operations
         to supplement GAAP results to provide a more complete understanding
         of the factors and trends affecting the business than GAAP results
         alone. Investors that wish to compare and evaluate our operating
         results after giving effect for these costs, should refer to net loss
         as disclosed in our consolidated statements of operations. Since
         adjusted income (loss) from operations is a non-GAAP financial
         measure, our calculation of adjusted income (loss) from operations
         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 the pro forma unadjusted net income (loss) to
         the pro forma adjusted income (loss) from operations is calculated as
         follows (see footnotes for reconciliation of the pro forma amounts to      their respective GAAP amounts):
