Shares of satellite radio service Sirius XM Radio (SIRI) gapped up this morning after Liberty Media (LMCA) announced plans to buy out the company.
Meanwhile, the company’s fundamentals need some work—of the eight financial metrics I graded SIRI on, it outright failed on four: Operating margin growth, earnings momentum, earnings surprises and analyst earnings revisions.
Sirius hasn’t been able to beat analyst EPS estimates for the past several quarters (with two massive earnings misses in the past year), and it doesn’t look like this earnings report will buck the trend.
While Sirius XM as we know it now has only been around since 2008 (created through the merger of Sirius Satellite Radio and XM Satellite Radio), this company’s roots stretch back to 1990, the founding of Satellite CD Radio Inc.
While SIRI started 2013 on a high note, it didn’t take long for things to sour for the satellite radio company.
The company receives Cs on earnings growth and cash flow so SIRI receives a D for its overall Fundamental Grade.

Liberty Media revised its relationship with controlled subsidiary Sirius XM as 2014 began by announcing its goal to acquire the shares in the satellite radio provider it doesn’t already own.  The non-binding offer is to pay a tiny premium to the closing price of Sirius when the offer was made of about $3.68 per share.
In a description that exactly matches the model used when Sprint abused Clearwire shareholders earlier this year, Sirius XM will form a special committee of supposedly “independent” directors to evaluate and negotiate the offer.  One presumes Liberty has begun with a low ball price so it has room to raise its offer.
Existing Liberty shareholders would be paid class C shares in a ratio of 2:1 and Sirius holders would end up owning 39% of the newly merged entity.  There is some humor in that because  Liberty bought 40% of Sirius for a mere $530 million loan six years ago.
Remember that after Karmazin and Howard Stern joined Sirius years ago, the stock traded at prices more than twice this offer.  It should also be noted that the offer is non binding which means that if the price changes dramatically, it could be withdrawn at any time.
Then the world collapsed and they couldn’t get any money at any price.  In the aftermath of the Liberty offer, the stock has rebounded 1000% and both Karmazin and Frears pocketed tens of millions in a huge payback for their gross error.  Liberty has also enjoyed what is probably its best investment of all time.
Sirius has moved to a more mature mode and generates significant cash flows.  Since Liberty is in a full court press to use its Charter Communications holdings to try to acquire Time Warner Cable, that cash flow is more valuable than ever.
It has never been able in recent years to break above 50% of new cars sold in its new customer acquisitions.  Twice as many used cars as new cars are sold in the United States and Sirius has talked forever about doing better in attracting second owners into the fold.
A leading provider of satellite radio, Sirius XM Radio broadcasts channels ranging from Springsteen to Pavarotti, from Disney to Stern, from Nascar to Oprah.
Sadly, with Liberty owning the controlling stake in Sirius XM it makes an outside bidder’s ability to come with a better deal almost impossible unless John Malone and Greg Maffei determine that it is just too good of an offer to pass up.
Liberty shareholders should easily vote yes, but the incentive for Sirius XM holders to vote yes is something which 24/7 Wall St.
Why Sirius XM Shareholders Are Getting Hosed in the Buyout – Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ:SIRI) – 24/7 Wall St.
If Liberty is able to swallow Sirius, it gives Liberty access to the satellite radio leader’s full free cash flow of about $625 million.
The terms call for 0.0760 shares of a new issue of Liberty Series C common stock per share of Sirius XM.
(NASDAQ: LMCA), under John Malone, has offered to buyout Sirius XM shareholders in a tax-free buyout at about $3.68 per share.
Liberty already owns about 52% of Sirius, and the move will give Sirius XM’s public stockholders about 39% of the future Liberty Media.
The problem in this buyout is that Sirius XM is already considered a controlled entity under Liberty.
SIRIUS XM Radio was headed for potential bankruptcy, or at least seriously rumored to be headed for bankruptcy, on three different occasions including 2001, 2003, and 2008.
(Of course, it was SIRIUS Satellite Radio for the majority of that time.) Regardless of the name, SIRIUS XM Radio has a never-say-die attitude.
If you own SIRIUS XM Radio at the current time, it’s a WAIT AND SEE.
Despite a subpar month, SIRIUS XM Radio has consistently trended up for three years.
SIRIUS XM Radio has a debt-to-equity ratio of .58, which is low for the industry, especially compared to one of its biggest competitors, Cumulus Media (NASDAQ:CMLS).
SIRIUS XM Radio has underperformed the S&P 500 over the past month, but that shouldn’t be a concern.
It’s difficult to side one way or another here, hence the word ‘Might.’ Satellite radio is undoubtedly a consumer discretionary item.
SIRIUS XM Radio has $556 million in cash and $2.34 billion in debt.
The annual revenue growth above also indicates SIRIUS XM Radio is moving in the right direction.
If SIRIUS XM Radio meets its potential, then $2.70, $2.50, or $2.90 won’t mean anything.
If people go out and buy new cars then we could see a significant boost in SIRIUS XM Radio sales.
SIRIUS XM Radio is the ultimate American comeback story.
And while Sirius’ factory-installed receivers give the company a built in advantage (two thirds of all new cars purchased today are Sirius-equipped), converting them into paid subscribers is where the rubber meets the road.
In the first quarter Sirius added 452,890 new subscribers (up 12% from the first quarter results a year ago) and is well on its way to reaching — or even surpassing — its goal of 1.4 million new subscribers by the end of the year.
If you don’t hold it, then wait till the stock bubble bursts again (which it will) and then jump in assuming Sirius’ share price plummets again.
Even still, when Sirius reported its first quarter earnings on April 30th, the company came up short, missing analysts’ expectations by a penny.
Major players such as Google, Apple and Pandora are making inroads into this area, but the truth is that Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI) has a "built in" head start.
Sirius is offering used-car buyers free trial subscriptions through over 9,000 participating used-car dealers and aims to continue to build its network of dealers over time.
However, if you look at Sirius – the company "wants" to buyback a lot of shares, and I’m on board with that philosophy.
However, don’t forget that the cost of the equipment has already been expensed at the time of the original purchase — which makes the used-car subscriber a very profitable customer for Sirius.
Once the trial runs out, Sirius is able to convert about 44% of the new-car buyers into paid subscribers.
On top of that, Sirius is what many would consider a discretionary item, which is at odds with a Money Morning mantra that says to buy companies that give people what they need over what they want.
A further signal that Sirius may accelerate share buybacks is that it is taking advantage of the very low interest rate environment by issuing $1 billion in notes.
While 209 million may sound like small potatoes in the grand scheme of things, take note that Liberty Media (Nasdaq: LMCA) is the owner of just over 50% of Sirius XM.
To that end, auto retailers usually include trial promotions that allow the new-car buyer to listen to Sirius for 90 days.
In fact, Sirius has seen its share price rise from $0.10 (that’s right, 10 cents) in early 2009 to a five-year high of over $3.50. That’s a gain of 3,400%.
Better yet, Sirius expects that number to almost double, reaching 100 million vehicles within the next five years.
Also, if the new-car market continues to show strength, then that is another strong catalyst for Sirius.
