XM Passes 2.5M Subs

10/04/2004 08:45:00 AM Eastern

Washington — XM Satellite Radio announced that it finished the third quarter with over 2.5 million subscribers, putting it on track to exceed its predicted 3.1 million subscribers by the end of the year.

The company said it added more than 415,000 new subscribers in the quarter, with a gain 75 percent higher than the 237,000 subscribers added in the same quarter last year.

XM’s president and CEO Hugh Panero said, “Aftermarket sales during the third quarter would have been higher, but for a temporary reduction in Delphi XM Roady2 receiver production during a four-week period in the quarter while a low-yield component was being replaced. Roady2 production returned to normal capacity in late August."

XM said the release of a new SKYFi2 receiver should help boost sales in the fourth quarter.
