|Title of each class of
securities to be registered
|Common stock, par value $0.001 per share||19,000,000||$5.77||$109,630,000.00||$13,287.16|
|(1)||Covers 19,000,000 shares of common stock of Sirius XM Holdings Inc., par value $0.001 per share (“Common Stock”), available for issuance under the Sirius XM Holdings Inc. 2015 Long-Term Stock Incentive Plan (the “Plan”). Pursuant to Rule 416(a) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), this Registration Statement also covers an indeterminate number of additional shares of Common Stock that may be offered and issued under the Plan to prevent dilution resulting from stock splits, stock dividends or similar transactions.|
|(2)||Calculated pursuant to Rule 457(h)(1) and Rule 457(c) under the Securities Act based on a price of $5.77 per share of Sirius XM common stock, which is the average of the high and low price per share of Sirius XM common stock as reported by the NASDAQ Global Select Market on January 28, 2019.|
This Registration Statement on Form S-8 is being filed for the purpose of registering an additional 19,000,000 shares of Common Stock to be issued by Sirius XM Holdings Inc. (the “Registrant”) under the Plan.
On February 1, 2019, pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization (the “Merger Agreement”), dated September 23, 2018, by and among the Registrant, Pandora Media, Inc. (“Pandora”), Billboard Holding Company, Inc., Billboard Acquisition Sub, Inc., White Oaks Acquisition Corp, and Sirius XM Radio Inc., through a series of transactions Pandora became an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of the Registrant (the “Transactions”). At the closing of the Transactions, the Registrant assumed Pandora’s (i) 2014 Stock Incentive Plan of AdsWizz Inc., (ii) Pandora Media, Inc. 2011 Equity Incentive Plan, (iii) Pandora Media, Inc. 2004 Stock Plan and (iv) TheSavageBeast.com, Inc. 2000 Stock Incentive Plan (the “Pandora Stock Plans”). In addition, at the Closing of the Transactions, all shares remaining available for awards under the Pandora Stock Plans which were previously approved by stockholders became additional shares available for awards pursuant to the terms of the Plan (as adjusted, to the extent appropriate, to reflect the application of the exchange ratio in the Merger Agreement pursuant to which each share of Pandora common stock was converted into the right to receive 1.44 shares of Common Stock). Subject to certain limitations set forth in the Plan, such shares may be used for awards under the Plan.
In accordance with Section E of the General Instructions to Form S-8, the contents of the Registration Statement on Form S-8 previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) relating to the Plan (File No. 333-204302) are incorporated by reference herein.
