The company has added over one million net subscribers in the first half of 2012. As of June 30, the satcaster had over 22.9 million subscribers. The company also increased its full year 2012 subscriber and revenue guidance. SiriusXM now expects its net new subscriber growth to approach 1.6 million and revenue to approach $3.4 billion in 2012. Adjusted EBITDA guidance of $875 million and free cash flow guidance of $700 million remain unchanged.
