(8) Investments in Debt and Equity Securities
All investments in marketable debt and equity securities held by the Company are carried at fair value, generally based on quoted market prices, and changes in the fair value of such securities are reported in realized and unrealized gains (losses) on financial instruments in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations. The Company elected the measurement alternative (defined as the cost of the security, adjusted for changes in fair value when there are observable prices, less impairments) for its equity securities without readily determinable fair values.
Investments in debt and equity securities are summarized as follows:
On September 23, 2018, SIRIUS XM entered into an agreement to acquire Pandora Media, Inc. (“Pandora”) in an all-stock transaction initially valued at $3.5 billion. In connection with the acquisition, each outstanding share of Pandora common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, will be converted into the right to receive 1.44 shares of SIRIUS XM common stock, par value $0.001 per share. The transaction is conditioned upon the vote of holders of a majority of the combined voting power of the outstanding shares of Pandora common stock and the outstanding shares of Pandora’s Series A Preferred Stock, voting together as a single class, in favor of the adoption of the merger agreement. In addition, the completion of the transaction is subject to other customary conditions, including, among others, (i) the waiting period applicable to the merger under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act has expired or been terminated, (ii) the decisions, orders, consents or expiration of any waiting periods required by the competition laws of other countries and jurisdictions, (iii) the absence of any law or order that prohibits or makes illegal the merger and (iv) subject to certain exceptions, the accuracy of the representations and warranties of each party and compliance by the parties with their respective covenants. The required notification and report under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Act was filed on October 18, 2018. Pandora’s Series A Preferred Stock will be canceled upon completion of the acquisition.
