Realised

Together we achieved

  • The creation of the world’s largest FSS company following the PanAmSat acquisition, with over 50 satellites in orbit
  • An increase in Intelsat’s presence in fast-growing markets through developing video and government/military applications, and targeting corporate networks
  • A sales increase of 86% and an EBITDA increase of 112%

This was accomplished by

  • Strategically refocusing on how Intelsat could increase the utilisation of launched satellites
  • Strengthening the management team
  • Improving the cost-discipline in what was formerly an inter-governmental agency
