We operate the world’s largest satellite services business, providing a critical layer in the global communications infrastructure. We generate more revenue and more EBITDA, operate more satellite capacity, hold more orbital location rights, contract more backlog, serve more commercial customers and deliver services in more countries than any other commercial satellite operator. We provide diversified communications services to the world’s leading media companies, fixed and wireless telecommunications operators, data networking service providers for enterprise and mobile applications, multinational corporations and ISPs. We are also the leading provider of commercial satellite capacity to the U.S. government and other select military organizations and their contractors.
Our network solutions are a critical component of our customers’ infrastructures and business models. Our customers use our global network for a broad range of applications, from global distribution of content for media companies to providing the transmission layer for unmanned aerial vehicles to enabling essential network backbones for telecommunications providers in high-growth emerging regions. In addition, our satellite solutions provide higher reliability than is available from local terrestrial telecommunications services in many regions and allow our customers to reach geographies that they would otherwise be unable to serve.
We are a joint stock company (société anonyme) incorporated under the laws of Luxembourg in July 2011. Our predecessors have been in the FSS business since 1964. We have historically conducted our business through Intelsat Global S.A. and its subsidiaries and, prior to that, Intelsat Holdings, Ltd. and its subsidiaries.
We seek revenue growth and increased cash flows by expanding our leading infrastructure business in high growth regions and applications while maintaining our focus on operational discipline. Given our efficient operating structure, we believe our strategy will position us to continue to deliver high operating margins, and to generate strong cash flow and growth as our current fleet investment program is completed. The key components of our strategy include the following:
- Focus our core business on attractive and growing broadband, mobility and media applications and innovative government solutions
- Optimize our space-based assets, including orbital locations and spacecraft
- Leverage the growth capacity resulting from completion of the current fleet investment program
- Incorporate new technology into our core network to capture growth from new applications and evolving customer requirements
- Drive innovation through creative acquisitions and new business models
- Apply our increasing cash flows to de-lever the business, improving our maturity profile and generating increased equity value
