|Item 8.01||Other Events|
On January 18, 2019, we issued a press release, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated by reference herein, announcing that our subsidiary, Sirius XM Radio Inc. (“Sirius Radio”), commenced, on behalf of Pandora Media, Inc. (“Pandora”), consent solicitations with respect to certain proposed amendments (the “Proposed Amendments”) to each of the indentures (the “Indentures”) governing Pandora’s 1.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2020 (the “2020 Notes”) and 1.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2023 (together with the 2020 Notes, the “Notes”), upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in a Consent Solicitation Statement, dated January 18, 2019 (the “Statement”), and the related consent form (the “Consent Form”). The Proposed Amendments relate to the transactions by which we will acquire Pandora under our previously announced agreement and plan of merger and reorganization with Pandora (the “Acquisition”). Each of the consent solicitations is being made independently of, and is not conditioned on, the consummation of the other consent solicitation.
Adoption of the Proposed Amendments with respect to each series of Notes is conditioned upon receipt of valid consents in respect of at least a majority of the aggregate principal amount of all outstanding Notes of the applicable series (the “Requisite Consents”) at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on January 25, 2019 (unless extended or earlier terminated). On January 18, 2019, Sirius Radio entered into an agreement with a beneficial owner of approximately $60.0 million of the principal amount of the 2020 Notes, representing approximately 39.5% of the $152,051,000 aggregate principal amount of the outstanding 2020 Notes, pursuant to which such holder agreed to consent to the Proposed Amendments with respect to all of its 2020 Notes and Sirius Radio agreed not to make certain amendments to the terms of the consent solicitation with respect to the 2020 Notes without such holder’s consent.
The consent solicitations are being made solely on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Statement and the Consent Form, including that all conditions precedent to the closing of the Acquisition have been satisfied or waived at or prior to February 15, 2019. The operativeness of the Proposed Amendments is not a condition to the completion of the Acquisition. Sirius Radio may terminate, extend or amend the consent solicitation with respect to either series of Notes as described in the Statement.
This Current Report on Form 8-K is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell the Notes and is not a solicitation of consents to the Proposed Amendments to the Indentures. The Consent Solicitations are being made solely on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Statement and the Consent Form and the information in this Current Report on Form 8-K is qualified by reference to such documents.
