In all respects, it was a successful year in which we met or exceeded the key operational and financial goals we set," said Mark Redmond, President and CEO, SiriusXM Canada. "At the core of our recent success has been our ability to grow our subscriber base. We've added more than 444,000 net total subscribers since the merger, and this in turn has driven our strong financial performance and enabled us in fiscal 2013 to begin to return capital to shareholders in the form of dividends."
"Looking forward, we are excited by the growth opportunities in front of us," continued Mr. Redmond. "Our strategic priorities are to grow our subscriber base, retain those subscribers, deliver unrivaled content and leverage SiriusXM's technology innovation to launch new products and services. To deliver on these objectives, we will expand our footprint with the OEM product lines; pursue opportunities in the pre-owned vehicle market; continue to give our customer more control over more content, which they can enjoy in more places; and, remain at the forefront of new technologies, helping to drive innovation in terms of the features and content available to owners of the emerging "connected car".

"Strong EBITDA growth, coupled with a high free cash flow conversion rate led to a significant increase in free cash flow, which allowed us to return $53.7 million in dividends to our shareholders during the year," said Michael Washinushi, CFO SiriusXM Canada. "With modest capital expenditure requirements and a growing recurring revenue stream, we believe our dividend is sustainable with the potential for further expansion as the business grows."
FY2013 Annual and Q4 FY2013 Results Financial Review
For FY2013, revenue was $288.9 million, up $29.3 million, or 11.3%, from $259.6 million in 2012, as a result of the growth in the Company's revenue-generating subscriber base and a slight increase in ARPU. Q4 FY2013 revenue was $75.7 million, up $7.6 million, or 11.2%, from $68.1 million for the same period in 2012.
FY2013 Adjusted EBITDA improved to $68.7 million, representing a 47.6% increase, or $22.1 million improvement, from Adjusted EBITDA of $46.6 million in 2012. The year-over-year increase was a result of the Company's top-line growth combined with a decrease in administrative and IT expenses, which was offset, in part, by a higher cost of revenue and marketing costs. Adjusted EBITDA for Q4 FY2013 was $16.6 million, up 35.6%, or $4.4 million, from $12.2 million for the same period in 2012.
SAC was $44 in FY2013 down from $49 in 2012. SAC for Q4 FY2013 was $40, down from $46 for the same period in 2012. The decrease for the year and the quarter was due to lower subsidies and distribution costs and higher gross additions from winback activities.
CPGA was $73 in FY2013 down from $75 in 2012 as an increase in marketing costs was more than offset by an increase in gross additions from winback activities and the decrease in subsidy costs. CPGA for Q4 FY2012 remained unchanged at $76 compared to the same period in 2012 as the effect of higher marketing costs was offset by higher year over year gross additions from winback activities and lower subsidy costs.
In FY2013, SiriusXM Canada generated $60.3 million in cash from operations, used cash of $15.7 million in investing activities, including purchase of short term investments of $5.3 million, and used $51.5 million of cash in financing activities, including $53.7 million of dividend payments. The Company generated $49.6 million in free cash flow in FY2013. In Q4 FY2013, the Company generated $14.8 million in cash from operations, used $5.0 million of cash in investing activities, and used $12.1 million of cash in financing activities. The Company generated $9.7 million in free cash flow in Q4 FY2013.
As at August 31, 2013, SiriusXM Canada had total cash and cash equivalents and short term investments of $49.2 million, down from $51.5 million as at May 31, 2013 and $51.0 million as at August 31, 2012.
