Primary F1 revenue is comprised of (i) race promotion fees, (ii) broadcasting fees and (iii) advertising and sponsorship fees. Results in the third quarter of 2019 were unfavorably impacted by the timing of the 2019 race calendar, with seven races taking place in the third quarter of 2019 compared to eight races in the third quarter of 2018.

Race promotion revenue decreased due to one less race held in the third quarter of 2019 and the impact of the renewal terms of one contract. Broadcast revenue increased primarily due to contractual rate increases, partially offset by the lower proportionate recognition of season-based income during the quarter (7/21 races took place in the third quarter of 2019 compared to 8/21 in the third quarter of 2018). Advertising and sponsorship revenue increased due to revenue from new sponsorship agreements. Other F1 revenue decreased in the third quarter primarily due to one less race held in the third quarter of 2019 and non-recurring television production fees in the prior year period.

Operating income and Adjusted OIBDA(2) increased in the third quarter as the revenue decline was more than offset by reduced costs. Team payments were lower in the third quarter driven by the pro rata recognition of such payments across the race season, and other cost of Formula 1 revenue was lower due to one less race in the quarter, which drove decreases in FIA regulatory fees, advertising and sponsorship, hospitality and other event based costs. Selling, general and administrative expense was relatively flat in the quarter.

F1’s total net debt to covenant OIBDA ratio, as defined in F1’s credit facilities for covenant calculations, was 5.3x as of September 30, 2019, as compared to a maximum allowable leverage ratio of 8.25x.

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 October 31, 2019.

BRAVES GROUP – The following table provides the financial results attributed to the Braves Group for the third quarter of 2019. In the third quarter, approximately $2 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, (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 rental income.

Baseball revenue per home game grew in the third quarter of 2019 primarily due to increased ticket and concession sales. Development revenue was modestly lower in the third quarter of 2019 as a result of the sale of the residential development in October 2018 and therefore the loss of its revenue in the current quarter. Operating income and Adjusted OIBDA declined in the third quarter of 2019, as revenue growth was more than offset by elevated operating expenses. The increase in operating expenses was primarily driven by higher player salaries, and to a lesser extent elevated costs due to the opening of the new spring training facility, scouting expenses, increased obligations under MLB’s revenue sharing plan and stadium operation costs driven by concessions.

The Formula One Group holds an approximate 15.1% intergroup interest in the Braves Group as of October 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 October 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 August 1, 2019 through October 31, 2019, Liberty Media repurchased approximately 1.4 million Series C Liberty SiriusXM shares (Nasdaq: LSXMK) at an average cost per share of $41.68 for total cash consideration of $60 million. The total remaining repurchase authorization for Liberty Media is approximately $419 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, liquid investments and restricted cash attributed to Liberty SiriusXM Group decreased $104 million in the third quarter as cash from operations at SiriusXM and net borrowings were more than offset by return of capital at both Liberty SiriusXM Group and SiriusXM and capital expenditures. Included in the cash, liquid investments and restricted cash balance attributed to Liberty SiriusXM Group at September 30, 2019 is $90 million held 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 unfettered access to SiriusXM’s cash balances. Liberty SiriusXM Group received $38 million of dividends from SiriusXM during the quarter.

Total debt attributed to Liberty SiriusXM Group increased $140 million during the quarter primarily as a result of additional borrowing under Liberty SiriusXM’s margin loan and SiriusXM’s revolving credit facility.

Total cash and liquid investments attributed to the Formula One Group increased $85 million during the quarter primarily due to cash from operations at Formula 1. Total debt at Formula One Group was flat in the quarter.

Total cash, liquid investments and restricted cash attributed to the Braves Group increased $41 million during the quarter as cash from operations at the Braves and additional borrowing more than offset capital expenditures related to the mixed-use development. Total debt attributed to the Braves Group increased $70 million during the quarter primarily due to draw downs on the team revolver and spring training credit facility to fund regular baseball operating activities and spring training facility capital expenditures. 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 debt.
