Liberty completed the acquisition of F1 on January 23, 2017. Liberty maintained an investment in F1 from September 7, 2016 until January 23, 2017, which was accounted for as a cost investment. For comparison and discussion purposes, the pro forma results of F1 are presented below for the full three months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016, inclusive of purchase accounting adjustments, as if the acquisition of F1 occurred on January 1, 2016. The purchase price allocation related to the F1 business combination and pro forma adjustments are preliminary and have been made available solely for the purpose of providing comparative pro forma condensed consolidated financial information how bitcoin mining works. The financial information below is presented for illustrative purposes only and does not purport to represent the actual results of F1 had the business combination occurred on January 1, 2016, or to project the results of operations of Liberty for any future periods.

The increase in Braves revenue in the quarter was primarily attributable to an increase in ballpark operations revenue driven by the Braves move to their new ballpark, SunTrust Park. Ticket sales, concessions, corporate sales, suites and premium seat fees all increased during the third quarter.

Operating loss increased compared to the prior year primarily as a result of increased stock-based compensation expense due to an increase in the estimated value of the Braves, combined with the continued vesting of outstanding awards, which resulted in a higher accrual for Braves’ equity compensation what does a bitcoin look like. Increased depreciation and amortization expense due to the depreciation of assets associated with the Braves mixed-use facility and SunTrust Park also impacted the operating loss. Adjusted OIBDA increased primarily due to the increase in ballpark operations revenue as discussed above, partially offset by increased costs associated with baseball and ballpark operations and the mixed-use facility.

The Formula One Group holds an approximate 15.5% intergroup interest in the Braves Group as of October 31, 2017. 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, 2017 would have been 58.6 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 team, five minor league baseball clubs and certain assets and liabilities associated with its ballpark and mixed-use development project.

The following financial information with respect to Liberty Media’s equity affiliates and available for sale securities is intended to supplement Liberty Media’s condensed consolidated balance sheet and statement of operations to be included in its Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2017.

On October 27, 2017, Liberty launched an exchange offer to exchange all, but not less than all, of the remaining outstanding Exchangeable Notes issued to the F1 selling shareholders in connection with the F1 acquisition. Upon exchange, noteholders will receive (i) a number of FWONK shares equal to the principal amount owned divided by the $22.323 conversion price, rounded up to the nearest whole share, and (ii) cash equal to all unpaid interest had the Exchangeable Notes been held until maturity on July 23, 2019 bitcoin preev. The exchange offer expires at midnight, New York City time, at the end of Friday, November 24, 2017, unless extended or earlier terminated.

As of October 31, 2017, there are approximately 230.8 million shares of Formula One Group common stock outstanding, pro forma for the approximately 1.2 million shares of FWONK issuable upon exchange of the remaining Exchangeable Notes. Based on this share count, the original selling shareholders of F1 who acquired shares of FWONK in January 2017 in connection with the Formula 1 acquisition own approximately 3% of the equity of the Formula One Group, assuming no prior or subsequent acquisitions of Liberty Formula One common stock.

This press release includes a presentation of adjusted OIBDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, for the Liberty SiriusXM Group, the Braves Group and the Formula One Group, together with reconciliations to operating income, as determined under GAAP. Liberty Media defines adjusted OIBDA as revenue less operating expenses, and selling, general and administrative expenses, excluding all stock-based compensation, and excludes from that definition depreciation and amortization, restructuring and impairment charges and separately reported legal settlements that are included in the measurement of operating income pursuant to GAAP.

Liberty Media believes adjusted OIBDA is an important indicator of the operational strength and performance of its businesses, including each business’ ability to service debt and fund capital expenditures. In addition, this measure allows management to view operating results and perform analytical comparisons and benchmarking between businesses and identify strategies to improve performance. Because adjusted OIBDA is used as a measure of operating performance, Liberty Media views operating income as the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Adjusted OIBDA is not meant to replace or supersede operating income or any other GAAP measure, but rather to supplement such GAAP measures in order to present investors with the same information that Liberty Media’s management considers in assessing the results of operations and performance of its assets.

The following table provides a reconciliation of adjusted OIBDA for Liberty Media to operating income calculated in accordance with GAAP for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and September 30, 2017, respectively.

This press release also includes a presentation of adjusted EBITDA of SiriusXM, which is a non-GAAP financial measure used by SiriusXM, together with a reconciliation to SiriusXM’s stand-alone net income, as determined under GAAP. SiriusXM defines adjusted EBITDA as follows: EBITDA is defined as net income before interest expense, income tax expense and depreciation and amortization paid to click bitcoin. SiriusXM adjusts EBITDA to exclude the impact of other income as well as certain other charges discussed below. Adjusted EBITDA is one of the primary Non-GAAP financial measures SiriusXM uses to (i) evaluate the performance of its on-going core operating results period over period, (ii) base its internal budgets and (iii) compensate management. Adjusted EBITDA is a Non-GAAP financial measure that excludes (if applicable): (i) certain adjustments as a result of the purchase price accounting for the merger of Sirius and XM, (ii) share-based payment expense and (iii) other significant operating expense (income) that do not relate to the on-going performance of SiriusXM’s business bitcoin rate in dollars. SiriusXM believes adjusted EBITDA is a useful measure of the underlying trend of its operating performance, which provides useful information about its business apart from the costs associated with its capital structure and purchase price accounting. SiriusXM believes investors find this Non-GAAP financial measure useful when analyzing past operating performance with current performance and comparing operating performance to the performance of other communications, entertainment and media companies. SiriusXM believes investors use adjusted EBITDA to estimate its current enterprise value and to make investment decisions. Because of large capital investments in SiriusXM’s satellite radio system, its results of operations reflect significant charges for depreciation expense. SiriusXM believes the exclusion of share-based payment expense is useful as it is not directly related to the operational conditions of the business. SiriusXM also believes the exclusion of the legal settlements and reserves related to the historical use of sound recordings, loss on extinguishment of debt and loss on disposal of assets, to the extent they occur during the period, is useful as they are significant expenses not incurred as part of normal operations for the period.

SiriusXM’s free cash flow is derived from cash flow provided by operating activities, net of additions to property and equipment, restricted and other investment activity and the return of capital from investment in unconsolidated entity bitcoin mining farm for sale. Free cash flow is a metric that SiriusXM’s management and board of directors use to evaluate the cash generated by operations, net of capital expenditures and other investment activity. In a capital intensive business, with significant investments in satellites, SiriusXM looks at operating cash flow, net of these investing cash outflows, to determine cash available for future subscriber acquisition and capital expenditures, to repurchase or retire debt, to acquire other companies and to evaluate SiriusXM’s ability to return capital to stockholders. SiriusXM excludes from free cash flow certain items that do not relate to the on-going performance of the business such as cash outflows for acquisitions, strategic investments and loans to related parties buy bitcoin with itunes gift card. SiriusXM believes free cash flow is an indicator of the long-term financial stability of the business. Free cash flow, which is reconciled to "Net cash provided by operating activities," is a Non-GAAP financial measure. This measure can be calculated by deducting amounts under the captions "Additions to property and equipment" and deducting or adding Restricted and other investment activity from "Net cash provided by operating activities" from the consolidated statements of cash flows, adjusted for any significant legal settlements. Free cash flow should be used in conjunction with other GAAP financial performance measures and may not be comparable to free cash flow measures presented by other companies. Free cash flow should be viewed as a supplemental measure rather than an alternative measure of cash flows from operating activities, as determined in accordance with GAAP. Free cash flow is limited and does not represent remaining cash flows available for discretionary expenditures due to the fact that the measure does not deduct the payments required for debt maturities. SiriusXM believes free cash flow provides useful supplemental information to investors regarding its current cash flow, along with other GAAP measures (such as cash flows from operating and investing activities), to determine SiriusXM’s financial condition, and to compare its operating performance to other communications, entertainment and media companies. Free cash flow is calculated as follows:
