Item 2.02

Results of Operations and Financial Condition

          On October 13, 2010, we issued a press release which contained certain information regarding our results for the quarter ended September 30, 2010. The press release did not include financial statements, related notes and certain other financial information that will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission as part of our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended September 30, 2010. A copy of such press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

          This information shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.

 

 

Item 7.01

Regulation FD Disclosure

          The information contained in Item 2.02 is incorporated in this Item 7.01 by reference.

          Legal Proceedings. In October 2010, a Multistate Working Group, led by the Attorney General of the State of Ohio and joined by the Offices of the Attorneys General of Arizona, Connecticut, Tennessee, Vermont and the District of Columbia, commenced a multi-jurisdictional investigation into certain of our consumer practices. The investigation focuses on our practices relating to the cancellation of subscriptions; automatic renewal of subscriptions; charging, billing, collecting, and refunding or crediting of payments from consumers; and soliciting customers.

          A separate investigation into our consumer-related practices is being conducted by the Attorney General of the State of Florida. In addition, in September 2010, the Attorney General of the State of Missouri commenced an action against us regarding our telemarketing practices to residents of the State of Missouri.

          We are cooperating with these investigations and believe our consumer-related practices comply with all applicable federal and state laws and regulations.

          This information shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act, or incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.

Other Events

          On October 13, 2010, we issued a press release announcing that XM Satellite Radio Inc. (“XM”), our subsidiary, commenced a tender offer to purchase for cash any and all of its 11.25% Senior Secured Notes due 2013 (the “Notes”) upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement, dated October 13, 2010, and in the related Letter of Transmittal and Consent. Concurrently with the tender offer, and on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in such Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation

Statement, XM is soliciting consents of holders of the Notes to authorize the elimination of most of the restrictive covenants and certain of the events of default contained in the indenture governing the Notes and the release the security for, and guarantees of, the Notes under the Indenture and the related documents.

          A copy of such press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.2 and is incorporated herein by reference.

          On October 13, 2010, we also announced that XM intends to sell up to $550 million aggregate principal amount of new senior notes due 2018 in an offering pursuant to Rule 144A and Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The new notes will be unsecured and guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by certain of XM’s existing and future subsidiaries. XM intends to use the proceeds of the offering of the notes and cash on hand to repurchase its 11.25% Senior Secured Notes due 2013, assuming the tender offer and consent solicitation are completed, and to pay fees and expenses associated with the transactions. If such tender offer and consent solicitation are not completed, XM intends to use the proceeds for general corporate purposes, which may include the repayment of indebtedness.

          The new senior notes have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any state and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.

          A copy of such press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.3 and is incorporated herein by reference.
