Sirius XM Radio Inc., the junk-rated satellite-radio broadcaster, plans to raise $500 million by selling seven-year bonds.

The company intends to issue the debt, which can't be called for three years, to fund general corporate purposes, including share repurchases and potential debt refinancings, according to a person familiar with the offering who asked not to be identified because terms aren't set. The notes will have covenants common to investment-grade companies, the person said.
