    • Liberty Media's (LMCA -0.4%) Q1 earnings featured a 12% gain in net income based on a 7% increase in revenue due again primarily to Sirius XM earnings -- Liberty holds 57% of Sirius XM with a stake that is 90% of Liberty's market cap -- though the company added that it also sold its position in Barnes & Noble for $27M, and sold another 1.3M Viacom shares for $86M.
    • The company bought back 1.9M shares of its LMCK class at an average price of $38.28, for a total cost of $74M.
    • Cash and liquid investments stood at $1.25B, up from Q4's $880M, chiefly due to cash from operations at Sirius XM. Total debt was $6.47B, primarily $5.15B in Sirius XM senior notes along with $1B in Liberty cash convertible notes.

    • In Liberty Media's (NASDAQ:LMCA) Q4 earnings call, CEO Greg Maffei confirmed there's no plans to sell the Atlanta Braves -- despite longtime speculation that the company might unload the team after some five-year tax advantages expired a few years ago.
    • The team's value is estimated at $730M; Liberty paid some $400M to acquire them in 2007.
    • Liberty swapped Time Warner stock to acquire the Braves, and so realized a $300M tax savings -- a basis change that Maffei admitted would make selling the club "painful" due to taxable gains.
    • Liberty Media debt decreased overall, offset somewhat by borrowings connected with plans for a new Cobb County stadium for the team.
