SIRIUSXM RADIO has reported second quarter 2012 financial and operating results, including revenue of $838 million, up 13% over second quarter 2011 revenue of $744 million. Net income for the second quarter 2012 and 2011 was $3.1 billion and $173 million, respectively. Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2012 was $237 million, up 28% from $185 million in the second quarter of 2011.
"SIRIUSXM continued its exceptional performance in the second quarter, adding over 600,000 subscribers, which represents a post-merger record, despite the mixed macroeconomic trends," said CEO MEL KARMAZIN. "We also attained a record-level free cash flow of $230 million -- the highest single quarterly free cash-flow figure in SIRIUSXM's history. We are very pleased with the strong operating results we have delivered since the merger, especially our performance in 2012, as we have grown revenue, tightly controlled expenses, and produced substantial growth in adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow."
"We've also raised our subscriber, revenue and adjusted EBITDA guidance as the Company exceeds its targets and as subscribers demonstrate how much they love our great content. We are excited to deliver our new SIRIUSXM On-Demand service to our subscribers via the Internet and smartphones, and our program to launch a personalized music feature via these same channels by the end of the year is on track. We intend to provide more innovative ways for our subscribers to access our best-in-class content, and we believe this focus on satisfying subscribers will also satisfy our shareholders," said KARMAZIN.
